Chugs along nicely in a blues /country vein, shades of JJ Cale and or maybe Clapton in a country blues setting.

    - Jeff Maguire

Reminded me (vocally) of the great 80's band called Love and Money - check them out - Jocelyn Square or their big hit Candybar Express. A different kettle of fish musically but I always try and introduce artists to artists I like if I hear a similarity - always good to hear a great cross section of stuff in my view.

Question Your Motives ©

I was all but broken, with a heart no longer open
Looking for an answer, that I didn't want to find
They told me;

"Question your motives, do not deny
You hold all the answers within your mind-eye
Cuz, there ain't nothing you can't see, that you won't see again
And if you think it's just beginning, well, it's beginning to end

Question your motives, open your book
What are you hiding, give 'em a look
Cuz, there ain't nothing they can do, that they ain't done before
But, if you give 'em your power, sure, they'll come back for more

There ain't nothing new, it's already been told
It's all just a story and the story is old
Cuz, it's a story that's full of lies, but you let 'em ring true
Since the end can not change, til the beginning's brand new

Question your motives
Question your motives

The end's the beginning, the beginning's the end
It's all quite the same, it's just a matter of when...
When you give 'em your power, like you've done here before
There ain't nothing they can do, but come back for more

Open your eyes, see what you can
Look in the mirror if you don't understand
That there is something you can do, that you ain't done before
Why don't you keep your own power, so they can't come back for more
Why don't you keep your own power, so they can't come back for more

Question your motives
