Song Description

A song that triggered my return to song writing after a ten-year absence. It's a lyric based on the struggle to reconnect with the artist inside him while dealing with the self-doubts that all creative souls deal with. Rich lead vocals glide silkily over the electronic FX and sparse beat, joined in the chorus by his soaring harmonies

Story Behind the Song

Personal tribute to reconnecting with one's creativity.


In this world of give and take
I've learned to take my share
Demoralizing myself in greed and adultery
A spirit timeless won't confide in me

In the restraints of the social norm
I criticized the artist
For being too emotional too giving
Too much like the me I am longing to be

I want to live and I want to run free
I want to breathe like the artist in me
And revel in the heart of spontaneity

Couldn't tell you about New York City
I was too drunk most of the time
Couldn't tell you of the ways of LA
I was too busy daydreaming to blind to see

They say sometimes it's better to forget
Accentuate the guilt without the regret
They say sometimes you must face away
To truly see yourself, to truly see yourself

I want to live...
