This track was recorded as a one take vocal and acoustic performance. I added in harmonies and additional instrumentation, but wanted to keep the raw, emotional feel to the track.

All anyone wants in this world is to be accepted and loved for who they are. We are perfect souls searching for connection. I stand as an ally for every person needing kinship, strength, love, and support to live as their true self. Much love to you all!

The world is in chaos right now. Our existence is shifting. Keep moving forward and leading with love. Now is the time to change the world. I wanted to release this song during June for Pride month and while we also continue to fight for long overdue civil rights in the pursuit of ending oppression and creating equality.

Choose love.



You - with the scars
Buried in your heart
When all you wanted was a moment to feel free

You - with the pause
Keeps tearing you apart
Keep on going
There's so much more that you were meant to be

I'm only trying to be honest
To live in truth despite what anybody else might see
And I am offering this promise
There's no safer place in this world
Than here with me

You - with the eyes
Blue as the skies
Yeah, they can see through
They can see straight through your disguise

So...I'll give you all I'm able
I will shine my light for all the world to see
For far too long I wasn't able
I kept it locked inside
So afraid
So afraid
So afraid to

Oh, I'm only trying to be honest
To live in truth despite what anybody else might see
And I am offering this you
You are safe with me
To be who you want to be
Oh, you are safe with me
To be who you need to be
