Biography

I’m a songwriter and recording artist. I create for you and sometimes myself. I do what I do because its challenging, devastating, and fun all at the same time. I love sexy and trashy music, as well as the real vulnerable crap that gets you all mixed up and sorted out at the same time. I dig change. I love writing for other artists and singers as well because I get to connect with them in ways most people don’t. Stories influence me, not songs. If you must know one thing about me it should be this..."I got caught singing on the toilet in Kindergarten class".... Ashton Zyer

Lyrics

The Sleepless Part

Written By: Ashton Zyer

Have you ever been so tired, you can't sleep at night? Have you ever lost someone, you never can go back to? Have you ever tried so hard to find you always fail? Are you sick of living lies, you never ment to tell? I've been up and I've been down, never quite this far. Didn't know the bottom felt so cold, til it held me hopeless. Every day I wonder if I ever could go on. About to break the news to you, and then you ring my room. I take your call, just hear your voice, telling me to hold on, life will take you for a ride. Put away that bottle baby, doesn't make things right. Hold on and i'll get there, to help you through the sleepless part of night. I know I've done some things, never should have done, hard to turn the clock back now, what will be will always be. I'm stuck between the past and choosing what feels right. Paralyzed by the fear, well maybe, until you pull it from me, when i take your call, just to hear your voice, telling me to hold on, life will take you for a ride. Put away that bottle baby, doesn't make things right. Hold on and i'll get there to help you through the sleepless part of night. At 3am the clock rings fast and I keep waitin' for things to change. Know that it takes love, to keep us in a place for moving on, well I need a little more of that tonight, need a little more of that tonight..(chorusX2).

Takin' Over Me

Written By: Ashton Zyer

Dressed up with nowhere to go, so i'm coming straight to you. With time on my hands but no watch to see, how things can change when your next to me...I feel the sweetest change, all over, all over me. You've got me wrapped up in circles of lovely. Taken my cares all up on you, soft as you are..even when I try to keep all things inside, you've got a way with Takin' over me. I never knew, what it felt like to be loved, by someone who cared about giving love. I can't go back to someone elses love, cause it's not you, it's not you. Next to me, how I need ya, oh so close to me. You've got a way with, takin' over me.
