about

As always, you can make this music a zero cost venture by donating whatever you like. Donations pay the musicians and engineers that created and shaped this out of thin air.
"Want Me" cost $895 to make and so far we are $796 from making this music truly free . (I'll update periodically.)

My pseudo-roommate (though not pseudo-talented) Sonya was playing a beautiful song of hers and I asked about the odd tuning she had her guitar in.

She handed me the guitar, gave me some quick guidance and within minutes we were playing and singing an early version of Want Me. This song came together quickly and felt different than any other song I had ever written. First of all the title is pretty pretentious if I say so myself, and to clock in at over 5 minutes, yikes!

That being said...I love it, and it feels right the way it is. I needed to write this song. I hope you can spare the 5 minutes it takes to indulge me!

lyrics

Whether you're a saint, a whore or a mother
I will be the one that you crave
The flavor at the tip of your tongue when you're waking from a dream
When all the things that can go wrong, go wrong
I will be the plan that you save, I will be the one
Are you ready for the one

On and on and on sounds like a figure of speech
Here and now sounds like a plan
I'm gonna make you want me
Even if you're not ready for love
I'm gonna make you want me

Whether you're not willing to accept someone new
I will be the knock at your door
A pedal in the snow, a river through your grave

I'm not giving you no choice, not giving you no chance
Not giving you a choice no chance,

On and on and on sounds like a figure of speech
Here and now sounds like a plan
I'm gonna make you want me
Even if you're not ready for love
I'm gonna make you want me

You're not giving up. not here, not now.

I'm gonna make you want me
Even if you're not ready for love
I'm gonna make you want me
