Getting High, an acoustic-distorted break up album about addiction. Country meets New Wave. ’Power Of Love’ and the yearning ’I Wanna Be An Alcoholic’ sets the tone, Euphoria – made completely from vocals – is about escape. Getting High, & Top Of The World, a classic Carpenters hit, close with hope and healing. ‘I Wanna Be An Alcoholic (Remix)’ is a tripped out mix, raps

Track Name: if
If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away
