no one to ask about fast cars and heroes no one to tell me my music's too loud and the freedom is so bittersweet feels like nothing in life ever ends up complete gave me the lecture 'bout trouble and girlfriends told me i will cut the grass and my hair he's the same man that bought me the toy red guitar and he held me and lifted me up to the stars with just one hand... the strongest man in the world something in our house grew tired one summer he held onto his american dream well a man can be swallowed by pride and he smiled as i walked up the aisle with my bride and shook my hand... the strongest man in the world stood by the bed where the old man was fading watched as the power went out of his eyes and i knew that his dreaming would not be destroyed when i saw what he meant to my own little boy hand in hand... with the strongest man in the world

I'm So High 05:21
i'm lyin in the bed we made and thinking of a hundred stupid things that i could say for every look in my direction i take two steps away can't leave the house without my keys i put them underneath my bed to get me on my knees and in a minute i'll climb down there say a prayer, let me go don't let anybody tell me i'm not supposed to know how to fly i'm so high i'm floating high above my head and i've forgotton all the brilliant things i might have said and if i trust myself, i'll take my own advice close my eyes, let me go don't let anybody tell me i'm not supposed to know how to fly i'm so high

i feel something is broken inside i feel angry teardrops burning holes in my pride i never felt the pain in the world like i felt when i learned that your love was the faithless kind i feel so empty i got no more to give like i lost my reason lost my will to live my whole world is shattered since the only love that matters is the faithless kind love love i'm afraid this heartache ain't got no way i feel deep down somewhere i'm never gonna love again well i never felt the pain in the world like i felt when i learned that your love is the faithless kind when i learned your love for me is the faithless kind

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
