He comes from a state that has produced many national recording artists such as Bruce Hornsby, the Dave Mathews Band, Carbon Leaf, Mae, Virginia Coalition, The Pat McGee Band, and many others. Influences such as Vertical Horizon, Edwin McCain, Train, and Sister Hazel can be heard in his sound, which can be described as "lyric driven rock with an acoustic foundation". Now, Bill plays with a full band and has opened for many artists including Dave Mathews/Tim Reynolds, Matchbox 20, Carbon Leaf, Lifehouse, and Will Hoge.

Lyrics

SHE’S LIKE HOME

Written By: Bill Mozingo

IT’S STRANGE TO WAKE UP IN VA / CAUSE I FELL ASLEEP IN LA / IN THE SAME ROOM IN THE SAME BED BUT SOMETHINGS CHANGED / SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE / OF MY DEEP, DEEP SLEEP / EVERYTHING I MISSED CAME AND GAVE ME A KISS AND LAID DOWN NEXT TO ME
Prechorus
OH WHEN ALL THOSE HOMESICK FEELINGS START TO STIR / I KNOW I CAN ALWAYS HANG MY HAT ON HER
Chorus
SHE’S LIKE HOME TO ME / SHE IS EVERYTHING I NEED / SHE TAKES ME AWAY TO ANYWHERE BUT HERE OR ANYPLACE I WANNA BE / AND EVEN THOUGH I CAN’T SEE / THE WAVES CRASHING IN THE EAST / EVERYTIME SHE SPEAKS SHE MAKES ME BELIEVE SHE’S LIKE HOME TO ME
IT’S SO PEACEFUL IN HER ARMS / YET I FEEL SO ALIVE / AND I LOSE TIME EVERYTIME I LOOK IN HER EYES / SHE BRINGS BACK THE GOODNESS / MISSING FROM MY SOUL / IN TIMES LIKE THESE I COULDN’T ASK FOR MORE
Prechorus
Chorus

OH AND ANYTIME I START TO FEEL I’M LEFT HERE ALL ALONE / ONE SIMPLE SMILE FROM HERE TAKES ME HOME

Chorus

MOVIN’ ON

Written By: Bill Mozingo

WAITIN’ AROUND FOR THE TELEPHONE TO RING / DON’T HERE A SOUND EXCEPT FOR MY OWN HEARTBEAT / YOU SAY YOU CAN’T FIND YOURSELF AND YOU NEED TO LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE / BABY THAT’S A CRUEL THING / TO GET INVOLVED WITH SOMEONE AND JUST WALK AWAY / WITHOUT AN EXPLANATION AND NOTHING TO SAY / MY FEELINGS GET LOST INSIDE SO MUCH IT MAKES ME CRY / BUT I WON’T CRY NO MORE / TODAY (WELL I’M)

Chorus
PUTTIN’ AWAY YOUR MEMORY / SOMEWHERE WHERE MY HEART CAN’T SEE / ALL OF THE PAIN YOU BROUGHT TO ME WAS WRONG / AND ALL THE MESS THAT YOU PUT ME THROUGH GUESS THERE’S / NOTHING LEFT FOR ME TO DO BUT REMIND MYSELF TO FORGET ABOUT YOU / FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE / BABY I’M MOVIN’ ON

I REMEMBER WHEN YOU FIRST TOLD ME ABOUT HIM / YOU SAID YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE MORE THAN FRIENDS / THEN I HEARD YOU ON THE PHONE AND YOU LOOKED SO HAPPY I KNEW IT WOULDN’T BE LONG BEFORE YOUR HEART GAVE IN

Chorus

(BREAK)

Chorus

GEORGIA

Written By: Bill Mozingo

I DON’T KNOW WHY I FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN UP ALL NIGHT / AND THIS NIGHT IS STRETCHING ON FOREVER / THERE’S NO RELIEF IN SIGHT / WELL I’M SHAKING INSIDE / BUT OUTSIDE LOOKS ALRIGHT / AND I PRETEND THAT TIME IS ON MY SIDE / THOUGH IT’S CREEPING ON BY

Chorus
I’M ALONE / AND I KNOW / THAT IT’S SO SAD THAT YOU HAD TO GO / SEASONS CHANGE AND I GROW OLD / BUT YOU REMAIN FOREVER IN MY SOUL (YOU’RE IN MY SOUL)

WELL THE DAY IS READY, READY TO SHINE AND THE SUN HANGS OUT IN THE SKY AND BURNS OFF / EVERY OUNCE OF NIGHT / BUT THIS NEW SUNLIGHT DOESN’T MAKE FEEL BETTER AND I FEEL LIKE YOU’RE GONE FOREVER CAN ANYTHING MAKE ME FEEL ALRIGHT

Chorus

WELL I TRY SO HARD NOT TO FORGET YOU BUT I’M SAD KNOWING I’LL NEVER GET TO TALK WITH YOU AND SPEND A LITTLE TIME / BUT I KNOW I CAN HEAR YOU SINGIN’ SOMEWHERE UP THERE AND I’LL GO ON LIVIN’ DOWNHERE TILL I MEET YOU / NORTH OF THIS SKY

Chorus (2X)

3000 MILES

Written By: Bill Mozingo


(V1) THREE THOUSAND MILES OF OCEAN AND SKY AND ALL THAT I HAVE ARE MY THOUGHTS/ OF ALL THAT I’VE DONE, ALL I DIDN’T TRY, ALL THAT I HAVE AND HAVE NOT

(PC) THE PRESSURE IS LOOMING AND IT’S WRITTEN ALL OVER MY FACE / THERE’S NOTHING THAT I CAN DO AND THERE’S NO WAY TO ERACE / THESE 3 THOUSAND MILES

(V2) NO WAY TO FIND SOME OPEN LINE TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I HAVE CHANGED / IF I HAD ONE SHOT I’D GIVE IT ALL THAT I’VE GOT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME

(PC) NO MATTER HOW FAST MY MIND RUNS I CAN’T SEEM TO SPEED UP THIS TIME / AND ALL PREVENTS ME FROM BEING WITH YOU IS ONE MONTH AND 3 THOUSAND MILES

(V3) SOME WORDS ON A PAGE MAKE MY HEART BREAK, THEY TELL ME YOU MAY NOT RETURN / INTO MY ARMS WHERE I KNOW YOU BELONG, IT DIDN’T TAKE TOO LONG TO LEARN

(PC) HOW MUCH I KNOW THAT I NEED TO BE WITH YOU / SO IF LONDON IS CALLING, WELL IT’S CALLING ME TO

(CH) CROSS 3 THOUSAND MILES / OF OCEAN AND SKY / AND ALL THAT I HAVE ARE QUESTIONS WHY / I DIDN’T TRY AND YOU DIDN’T CRY / THE MOMENT WE SAID GOODBYE/ OH HOW IT’S CHANGED / SINCE YOU WENT AWAY / NOW I KNOW I NEED YOU TO STAY / FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE / I PROMISE I’LL TRY / TO MAKE YOU FORGET / TO MAKE YOU FORGET / THOSE 3 THOUSAND MILES

WAITING

Written By: Bill Mozingo

(V1) I WAS THINKING A LOT ABOUT YOU TODAY / WONDERING IF IT WAS RIGHT TO LET YOU UP AND GO AWAY / TAKING HALF OF EVERYTHING I OWN / WITH NO GUARENTEE / YOU’D COME BACK TO ME / I COULDN’T SEE / IF YOU’D FIND YOU DIDN’T NEED ME / THIS EMPTINESS IS KILLING ME

(PC) BUT I’M HOLDING ON / THOUGH I DON’T KNOW WHY / I’M HOLDING ON JUST WAITING FOR MY TIME

(CH) I’M STILL HERE WAITING / FOR YOU TO COME AND TAKE ME / I’M STILL HERE WAITING FOR YOU

(V2) ARE YOU LIVING WELL? / ARE YOU FLYING HIGH? / DID YOU FIND THE GRASS WAS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE? / IS IT EVERYTHING YOU DREAMED OF AND MORE? / WELL I NEVER STOPPED LOVING YOU / I STILL THINK A LOT ABOUT ALL THE THINGS WE USED TO DO / BEFORE LIFE GOT TOO BORING FOR YOU
