about

I began writing in early 2000 as music therapy after the death of my Mother. Her death helped me to hear/see life through a new lens. I began to look at things in my life that might be tragic or upsetting and try to find the good in all those situations. To create a beautiful memory rather than one that seems to be a dark time in your life. Really just an exercise in positive thinking. So began “AOK”, which is a philosophy where, although I’ve experienced this life’s "goods" and "bads", everything has turned out “AOK”.

So 13 years and 200+ songs later I have finally taken the time necessary to record this first official release of AOK. An album I can be proud of.

Track Name: Candlelight
Under the stars tonight
There's no comfort like a candlelight.
And should they fall from the sky?
Shelter my umbrella will provide.

What will I leave behind
Legacy of love, I hope they find
And should you all forget?
Let my words be a reminder then.

So much closer than I've ver been to the prize in sight.
No one else will ever be as close as baby you and I

Let your guard down, you're safe with me.
just look at what we made, of a bad thing
following your heart.

Under the stars tonight
There's no comfort like a candlelight.
And should they fall from the sky?
Shelter my umbrella will provide
and it will provide

So much closer than I've ver been to the prize in sight.
No one else will ever be as close as baby you and I
Track Name: Logical Man
When everything equally divides
How could you ever chose a side
Nothing is ever black and white
Choose where the two worlds collide.
cause elsewhere a fool will decide.

Which of these battles will you fight
When both of these soldiers could be right
Nothing is ever black and white
Choose where the two worlds collide.
cause elsewhere a fool will decide.

When everything equally divides
How could you ever chose a side
Nothing is ever black and white
Choose where the two worlds
Choose where the two worlds
Choose where the two worlds collide.
Track Name: Fly In The Ice
There was a time
you were living well.
now suckered into a living hell.
judgmental in attitude
humbled teacher, gratitude.

Fly in the freezer, froze.
Thaw him out, let him go.
The sun is your only hope.
But like the time he comes and goes.
End is near.
and it only gets worse from here.

Daily sunrise window tap
wide awake without a map.
coffee keeps you paranoid
radio static, comfort noise.

Fly in the freezer, froze.
Thaw him out, let him go.
The sun is your only hope.
But like the time he comes and goes.
End is near.
and it only gets worse from here.

There was a time
you were living well.
now suckered into a living hell.
judgmental in attitude
humbled teacher, gratitude.

Fly in the freezer, froze.
Thaw him out, let him go.
The sun is your only hope.
But like the time he comes and goes.
End is near, end is near, end is near,
end is near, end is near
and it only gets worse from here.
Track Name: Just A Spark
There's only a half of a heart
living in this old hotel room
Then you came and
threw back the drapes
and brightened up the room.

If only my eyes could adjust,
to this silhouette in my view
If only i could make out a face
I'm hoping that its you.

Follow your heart off the edge
Baby we can build us a fire
'cause all you really needed was light
and just a little spark.

You say there's not a man,
who could love ya good
Maybe he is out in the woods?
'cause all you really need is a light
and just an open heart.

Follow your heart off the edge
Baby we can build us a fire
'cause all you really needed was light
and just a little spark.
Track Name: Goodnite
It's a fishing line between two cans
It's the next best thing to holding your hand
in my dreams i make believe i'm your man.
'cause you are the sweetest thing.

Singing you Goodnite
Go to bed with a big smile
Under the moonlight
we'll have the sweetest dreams.

Holding hands over a fast beating heart
Where we're going love it never gets dark.
When I saw you right from the start
that you were the sweetest thing.

Singing you Goodnite
Go to bed with a big smile
Under the moonlight
we'll have the sweetest dreams.
Singing you Goodnite
Go to bed with a big smile
Under the moonlight
we'll have the sweetest dreams.

It's a fishing line between two cans
It's the next best thing to holding your hand
in my dreams i make believe i'm your man.
'cause you are the sweetest thing.

Singing you Goodnite
Go to bed with a big smile
Under the moonlight
we'll have the sweetest dreams.
Singing you Goodnite
Go to bed with a big smile

we'll have the sweetest dreams.
we'll have the sweetest dreams, tonite.
Track Name: Dear Friend
Dear friend don't be afraid
you're on your way
there's beautiful weather
bigger and better things.

Do it all while you're young
'cause there's lots to learn
Follow your heart in turn.
Take lots of photographs
Don't forget to laugh '
cause it all goes so fast.

Slow down don't be in such a rush
that you miss a hug and a smile
there's so much love to go around
and it's yours.

Do it all while you're young
'cause there's lots to learn
Follow your heart in turn.
Take lots of photographs
Don't forget to laugh '
cause it all goes so fast.

Do it all while you're young
'cause there's lots to learn
Follow your heart in turn.
Take lots of photographs
Don't forget to laugh '
cause it all goes so fast.

Do it all while you're young
'cause there's lots to learn
Follow your heart in turn.
Track Name: Scorpion Kiss
Take a good look
'cause you're never gonna see me
A scorpions kiss on the wrist
and now I'm poisoned

Feeling it burn
like a bridge across the water, 
Now you'll never make that walk out
to another lover

Listen closely,
I think I got something to tell ya
(I'm) treading lightly,
cause anti-venom
ain't gonna cure ya

Saying goodbye
to the birds up in the sky
with all their marvelous moves
while they circle my body. 

Never again
will you trust another lover
with a scorpion kiss
and a heart seeking dagger.

Listen closely,
I think I got something to tell ya
(I'm) treading lightly,
cause anti-venom
ain't gonna cure ya

Now that you're gone
it really makes me wonder
just what kind of spell
did you go and put me under

never again
will you trust another lover
with a scorpion kiss
and a heart seeking dagger.

Listen closely,
I think I got something to tell ya
(I'm) treading lightly,
cause anti-venom
ain't gonna cure ya
Listen closely,
I think I got something to tell ya
(I'm) treading lightly,
cause anti-venom
ain't gonna cure ya
Track Name: Hip Sway
There was night
when all the fires
couldn't compete
with the flames in your eyes.

Seeing you float
just like a balloon
You caught my eye
when you walked in the room

Seeing you move,
just like a red light
Your body is dangerous
when your hips sway.

Hey there,
come and dance with me
I like the way you're movin'
come and move with me
to the rhythm of the lights
I wanna feel your body
right up next to me

There was night
when all the fires
couldn't compete
with the flames in your eyes.

Watching you move
like flickering flames
Your body is dangerous
when your hips sway.

Left and then right
as u hypnotize
Your body is dangerous
when your hips sway.

Track Name: Soon Enough
Though it seems
like a waste
of time to wait.

It'll come
but you cant
control the pace.

Give it time
Give it space
Believe me

I want love, but I don't
wanna rush into it like this.

Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.

Now i can't
tell you when
my heart will change.

and i hope
Soon enough
but who's to say?

Give it time
Give it space
Believe me

I want love, but I don't
wanna rush into it like this.

Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.

Give it time
Give it space
Believe me

I want love, but I don't
wanna rush into it like this.

Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.
Soon enough it'll find you.
Track Name: Nice To Meet You
Hi there,
Nice to meet you
where have you been?

Timing's really funny
how it works
and then its gone, like that.

Goodbyes
never get easier
But, life goes on.

Timing's really funny
how it works
and then its gone, like that.

Do you wish for a light?
Will you wait 'til its right?
Hesitate and you miss
Oh the gift of a kiss.

Track Name: Go With Him
Go with him.
I know your heart is there.
I'll never hold the key.
Lord knows, I've tried and I've tried
But, now you drift away
Like a plume of smoke.
And off you go
oh off you go

Letting go
will be the hardest thing.
Although i feel i failed
i know i gave you my all
but now you slip away
sliding down that rope
and oh off you go
oh off you go.

Both have our paths
Follow yours, i'll follow mine
If we make it back
We're the lucky one's, lucky ones.

Now's the time
time we gotta say goodbye
never gonna find one like
like when our sparks ignited
always gonna hold this flame
in the safest place
so that when the time is right
we can torch the mountainside.

Both have our paths

Track Name: Maybe We Can Fly One Day
Everything's gonna change, girl
Nothing can stay the same, girl
Walking in this world's so strange, girl
Should've been by my side,
But nothing you can do
or say can change me
This'll be the one thing
you cant control.

And you can't fight the flames,
when its windy.
And you can't do heights,
'cause it makes you dizzy

Got to find my own way, girl
Cannot be led astray, girl
Winter's coming swiftly but, I
always seen it coming
like a freight train
Maybe we can fly one day,
you never know.

And you can't fight the flames,
when its windy.
And you can't do heights,
'cause it makes you dizzy

And you can't fight the flames,
when its windy.
And you can't do heights,
'cause it makes you dizzy
