My new record, The Dust-Up, will be out on Sept 10th! In anticipation of its release I'll be offering a few preview tracks. This first one is called "I Won't Give Up". Enjoy!


I Won’t Give Up

Pouring out of every pore
Drenchin my skin, flowing like blood
Flowing like blood
That’s just…my love

Big raging river, to a clean waterfall
You look a little scared, aint you never been here before
Been here before
Or did you always watch from the shore

Maybe, this thing is bigger than us
And maybe it’s easier, to just give up
But I won’t give up
I won’t give up

Good morning baby, tell me where ya been?
Have you been stuck inside your head, do you suffer for your sins?
Like I do
I’m just like you

If you feel like runnin off
At the first sign of bumps, scrapes, or scuffs
(That’s on you) Cause I won’t give up
I won’t give up
Thought you were made of tougher stuff
And I won’t give up

That late night drive through
The New England fog
The car couldn’t go fast enough to get to you
And fate must be trying to tell us something
But I’ve never been one for fate’s interlude
But still the stars aligned
Put us side by side

Maybe, I’m not who you thought I was
See I can stumble to; I’m just skin, bones, and blood
Sometimes I get lost in a flood
Of emotion, pride, & love

I know I’ve got the strength to keep going
Two against the world or alone
I won’t give up
I hope you’re my last stop
I won’t give up
