Pictures burned into my mind
Call it fascination, just infatuation
Know it’s just a matter of time
Selective amnesia, a game I always play
Connect four, a face without a name
It’s insecurity every time we meet
Can’t say hello, it’s only me
Stumble down the avenue
I am afraid of falling down
Your whispers move right through me, kind of like the movies
Remember all the lines that you said
It’s gotta be rejection, just can’t be perfection
Painted dreams in cherry red
I run away again, you know I can’t give in
Head plus my heart, will never win
I keep my secret safe, a secret time and place
Secret I love your secret face
Stumble down the avenue
Skinning dirty knees still skinning dirty knees won’t matter
Only time will tell, I told you so

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
