about

This is a concept album. When my wife and I found out we were pregnant with our first child, I wrote a song for every ultra-sound we went to. Listening to the album in sequential order will take you on the journey that I was on throughout her pregnancy. I hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Heartbeat
Plenty of time we've waited, now you're here
You're gonna be three months old this time next year
They said your baby's heartbeat reads 183
My heart beats kid for you

They ran it across her skin a time or two
I held to your mother's hand & looked at you
And then they turned to where I stood
Said everything looks good
Our heart beats kid for you

When I heard the beat resound
I must've been the happiest guy around
I can't wait to see you smile
Yeah it might be a while, but won't let down

They gave us a picture of you small and still
Said here's your little almond, what a thrill
And then your mom and I locked eyes
Said that's the perfect size
Our heart beats kid for you
Track Name: Abigail
It's nine in the morning and I just came from
The doctor to see this new life that's begun
Today was your birthday but now that you're gone
It's harder to tell you the things that I want, but

Abigail
You'd be so proud of me

Twelve weeks the day that you'd be thirty-two
A glimmer of joy, and enough to get through
It's no consolation but my point of view
I hope she turns out to be something like you

Unresigned, your peace of mind was gone
But you soldiered on
In the worst of times you kept your eyes on love
You couldn't get enough

I'm proud of you
You'd be proud of me too

Yeah Abbi you
Would be proud of me too
Track Name: My Little ____
I'm running late, my mind's about
Today's the day that we find out
The kind of kid that you'll turn out to be
Will you be prince or beauty queen?
Either way you're gonna be
Our little dream

I think about you every day
The things you'll love the games you'll play
And whether you'll be daring or demure
It doesn't matter either way
We're gonna love you just the same
Bold or tame

We'll mess up a time or two, we'll make mistakes with you but that's ok. We can change
Cause far beyond our useless pride there lies the kind of person you'll become
That's number one

So here we are now safe and sound
I'm nervous and I'm pacing round
The nurse she gives a smile and looks at me
She said "I've seen all that I need,
And with that said it pleases me
To tell you you have got a boy"
We filled with joy
Track Name: You and Me
I see you moving round in there
Embryonic life ain't fair
But once you come around
That's when it all goes down
It's you and me and open air

I'll take you fishing in the stream
If you let me coach your baseball team
I'm sure you're well aware, but
Life is legendary
It's gonna pass your wildest dreams

You and me
You'll never know just how much fun we'll be
You'll be the Sundance to my Cassidy
The two of us is all we'll ever need

I'll teach you how to play guitar
And how to drive a stick shift car
We'll ride around the town
From sunup to sundown
And cause some mischief near and far

I'll let you ride a motorbike
And other stuff your mom won't like
She'll probably contend
You're his father not his friend
But I'll tell her you're just my type

You and me
You'll never know just how much fun we'll be
The two of us is all we'll ever need
Cause we'll be classier than Frank and Dean

You and me
You'll be the Sundance to my Cassidy
Like Merry Men we'll run as thick as thieves
We'll be a modern kind of family

I'd stay up for an hour or two
If only just to be with you
A quiet conversation filled with expectation
Tomorrow we'll begin anew

You and me
You'll never know just how much fun we'll be
Like Merry Men we'll run as thick as thieves
We'll be a modern kind of family

You and me
You'll be the Sundance to my Cassidy
And we'll be classier than Frank and Dean
The two of us is all we'll ever need

Oh yeah. Uh huh. My little boy
Track Name: On Your Side
Life's a let go
From the first roll
Love's a hard road
But you should know that

I'll be on your side
To get you through the night
If you feel you're lost and down inside
I'll be your guide

Hearts can get cold
Loved ones grow old
For reasons untold
But we'll be whole someday
We'll find a way

I'll be on your side
Through the darkest night
Don't care how far you wander when you roam
I'll be your home

My son
I'll be something to lean upon
When you feel like your strength is gone
Yeah I'll help you carry on
And In time
When we don't have a hill to climb
Just know in your heart that I'm
Still gonna be on your side

Love will find a way
Good will win some days
Life can be a lot to understand
So I'll be your hand
Track Name: Good Thing Going
She and I go way back to yester-year
Yeah out of nowhere this angel appeared
At first elusive but we met at last
It didn't take long for us, we happened fast
I made her laugh in math & chemistry
Right from the start she saw the best in me
We'd stay up talking till we fell asleep
Don't think I've ever met a girl so sweet

Hey kid, you've got a good thing going
Yeah man you've got a good thing going on
You'll always have a rock to lean upon

Hey boy, you've got a good thing going
Yeah man you got a good thing going on
You'll always have the world's most loving mom

She'd come and see all of my petty shows
Her smiling face always the closest row
And when she left for university
I followed her out here for both my dreams
I'd ride my bike from Hollywood to Orange.
Have late night dinner there inside her dorm
When we got hitched we didn't have a dime
But she worked hard enough and bought us time

Hey kid, you've got a good thing going
Yeah man you've got a good thing going on
You've got the sweetest soul to lean upon

Hey boy, you've got a good thing going
Yeah man you got a good thing going on
You'll always have the most amazing mom

I've seen her good & I have seen her bad
She's still the best friend that I ever had
But I won't be her only boy no more
So you've got a world of happiness in store

Hey boy, you've got a good thing going
Yeah man you got a good thing going on
You'll always have the world's most loving mom

Hey kid, you've got a good thing going
Yeah man you've got a good thing going on
You'll always have a rock to lean upon
Track Name: Lot of Life
Beautiful, you're such a lovely soul
Time's so young, the world is ours to hold

All the love we've seen
All the joy it brings
And we've still got a lot of life to go
We've still got a lot of life to go

You and me. I'm yours to have and hold
Start a family and watch our lives unfold

All the love we've seen
All the joy it brings
And we've still got a lot of life to go
We've still got a lot of life to go

Everything we've lived to see
All the friends we've made along the way
Time's so sly he passed us by, but
All the memories are here to stay

53, the kids are growing old
We've lived our dreams
It's time to share the road

All the love we've seen
All the joy it brings
It's those simple things
And we've still got a lot of life to go
We've still got a lot of life to go
