about

LEFT BEHIND is a song inspired by the frustration of growing apart from those we love. No matter the promise of tomorrow, challenges are delivered via the unexpected changes in today's existence, happenings impossible to plan for, disappointment too great to escape.Inevitably, there is separation from personal happiness, resulting in separation from the very souls who make up the world we know.
Dave Matthews, producer extraordinaire, and I aimed at a new production template for the WIDE OPEN WORLD, and "Left Behind" is a perfect example of the fresh sound we were searching for; it is a stark, minimalist approach , acoustic guitar, drums from the BRILLIANT Jamie Rogan, and Dave adding synthetic keys and other interesting atmospheric colors, as only he does, coupled with a very honest vocal. I love the finished art that this song is.

lyrics

No matter how straight my path appeared
There were unknown turns
unforeseen tears
Time flew by, days became years
Not sure how I made it from there to here

The cross I bore was only mine
No weight on those
that shared my time

And there were casualties
though I really tried
Seems someone always gets Left Behind
It's a wound that bleeds
through lonely nights
Seems someone always gets Left Behind

A bad decision was my drink of choice
I turned a deaf ear
to a loud inner voice
I walked as a man
but thought like a boy
Darkened by whiskey
and truth I would avoid

Black circles beneath my eyes
Left from memories
tired lies

And there were casualties
though I really tried
Seems someone always gets Left Behind
It's a wound that bleeds
through lonely nights
Seems someone always gets Left Behind

Those broken hearts
stand in line
Await repair
renew their pride
Loyalty pushed to the side
The failure took me for a ride

And there were casualties
though I really tried
Seems someone always gets Left Behind
It's a wound that bleeds
through lonely nights
Seems someone always gets Left Behind
Those casualties, I really tried
but someone always gets left behind
Someone always gets left behind
