Biography

It's there in the corner of a small and dusty room. Partially covered by a torn piece of burlap and an old shirt that is now speckled with paint, it never moves. The sunlight graces its face for a small portion of each day, and then the shadows consume it. But when it catches the light, the colors shine so vividly. It almost glows with warmth. The man in the room knows that it's there, all tucked away, just the way he left it. It is his masterpiece, his Mona Lisa. Fear is his only inhibitor. In his dreams, he invites the museum curator to take a look at his work. He awakes with anticipation each and every day. But the curator never shows, and the man forgets that it was only a dream. So, his painting sits just like it was the day before, and the day before that, and many more before. It sits in the corner, creating a small spot where the dust never hits the floor. What good is such a painting if no one ever sees it? What good is music if it is never heard?

Lyrics

Back to you

Written By: Ben Sturgell

Yesterday I picked an apple off a tree
It fell down in a hole
And it came to me
This little song
You can live your life
Take it from those who give to you
But if you know what’s wise
Listen to your soul
What goe around is gonna come back to you
What goes around circles back t oyou
What goes around is gonna come bak to you
What goes around circles back to you
If You need my coat when its cold outside
You need my car when you don’t have a ride
Heres my shoulder when you need to cry I’m here
What goes around is gonna come back to you
What goes around circles back to you
What goes around is gonna come back to you
What goes around circles back to you
So when you have a chance to get it right
Even when the wrong it seems so right
Walk into the light
What goes around is gonna come right back to you
What goes around circles back to you
