I was born the son of a hero, or in my eyes that's the way it should be, Though you fought in the war, and I didn't know what for, I believe you were fighting for me, You said freedom is worthy of dying, integrity is the truth of a man, With all that you do, I still look up to you, And try to be the best that I can. I'm the artist, the writer, the dreamer, An expression of all that you are, With the gifts that you gave, I'll take to my grave, And live a life playing my guitar. Well I know I was always your favorite, especially with music and song, You believed in the dream, and we were a team, And your strength had pushed me along, You said love is sacred and holy, and honesty is the way to the heart, And now I can see, that your proud of me, For you've always been from the start. I'm the artist, the writer, the dreamer, An expression of all that you are, With the gifts that you gave, I'll take to my grave, And live a life playing my guitar. Now the time has come to be leaving, it's been years since I've seen you face, And though the feelings of fear, are no longer here, The past is what I need to embrace, I said, time is the healer of sorrow, forgiveness is just letting go, With the tears that we've cried, we've grown stronger inside, As our dreams continue to grow, I'm the artist, the writer, the dreamer, An expression of all that you are, With the gifts that you gave, I'll take to my grave , And live a life playing my guitar.

Well, I'm standing at the gates of heaven, With a guitar in my hand, And I said "Lord please let me in now, Cos I 've played all that I can". And he said " Boy, you gotta learn new rhythm, You gotta feel it in your soul", Cos the blues had a baby, And he called it, Rock and Roll". One two, one two, three four.. So I'm running, fast as lightning, Feel the blood run through my viens, Gotta fever in my head now, Burning hot like an old coal train. And I found me a new way of living, And I feel it in my soul, Yeah the blues had a baby, And it's called, rock and roll. Well I'm longing for the days of thunder, With my body dressed in black, To feel the freedom of the highway, On my ironhorse cadillac, And I hear that motor humming, Like a rumble in my soul, Yeah the blues had a baby, And it's called rock and roll. And I found me a new way of living, And I feel it in my soul, Yeah the blues had a baby, And it's called, rock and roll.

" There's a glow in the air on the streets tonight on the corner of Hastings and Main, There's a cry of voices in the pale moonlight, from the wolves who deal out the pain, and another addict dies, by the old Sunrise, but no one seems to notice so it seems, because who really cares, what goes on down there, on the streets of broken dreams"

" I am just a humble servant in the presence of my Lord and I have come to seek his wisdom and life is my reward, and I speak of words of love, yes I speak of words of peace"

" Goodbye love, my sweet angel, I'm so sad to see you go, I have loved you more than ever, more than you will ever know...

the dance 04:05
"How I miss those crazy times when we didn't stand a chance, fighting like cats and dogs not giving up our stance, but making up was fun to do cuz we called it romance, the music may be over, but I still long for the dance."

lead me home 05:38
" I can hear your heart calling, like a whisper in the breeze, speak to me words of promise, set my weary mind at ease...

" It's been years since I left the country, it's been years since I left my home, spent my time lost in the city, and I lived my life like a rolling stone...

who I am 06:09
" I have been down to the crossroads and seen the world from both sides, and I have been down to the circus and I have been on all the rides....

about

This album is my first release album, and the title track Son of a hero, is a song I wrote for my father who fought in the Korean conflict and who's values and beliefs have carried me throughout my life. The music is easy-listening and bluesy.
