I am currently recording my first LP entitled "Shades of Grey". I started writing the material for this project in the summer of 2007 and hope to release "Shades of Grey" by August of 2008. As I complete the recordings of the individual tracks I will post them for listening as well as the lyrics.

Biography

My music can best be described as acoustic rock that sometimes has an edge to it. Most of the material I write is based on events in my life, however I will sometimes write based on opinion or perspective instead. I find inspiration in other artists, friends and allowing myself to be in a moment.

Lyrics

Create This Thing

Written By: Bill Rightnour

Verse 1
These streets will know us tonight
The same ones that scream with everyday lives
These white city lights they brighten your eyes
So why would I even put up a fight

Pre-chours
I'm exhaling from me
I'm exhaling from me

My hands are steady now
My hands are steady now

Chorus
I want to sit with my guitar
And feel like I do when I'm in your arms
I want to sit with my guitar
And feel like I do when I'm in your arms

Let it flow through me
Let it flow through me

And create this thing called love
Create this thing called love

Verse 2
And I recall Jersey summers
The way they tanned your skin
We used to dream of changing colors
Like sunsets rolling in

Pre-chorus
I'm exhaling from me
I'm exhaling from me

My hands are steady now
My hands are steady now

Chorus
I want to sit with my guitar
And feel like I do when I'm in your arms
I want to sit with my guitar
And fee like I do when I'm in you arms

Let it flow through me
Let it flow through me

And create this thing called love
Create this thing called love

Bridge
So now I sit here looking back
To remember those times of happiness

Why do we look back, why do we look back

And everything is in my hands
So how this takes is nothing

Why do we look back, why do we look back

Chorus 2
The night is falling in
I am falling in
My hands are steady now
My hands are steady now

The night is falling in
I am falling in
My hands are steady now
My hands are steady now

I'm Not Alright

Written By: Bill Rightnour

Verse 1
Struck dumb, dumb with fear
And I would like to know why I'm here
Oh why I'm here
I'll hang on tight, for this ride
A six pack in his hand, I'm not alright
Oh I'm not alright
A sudden swerve from lane to lane
I wish I were an hour away
and...

Chorus
This doesn't make sense to me
Why judges, judge the way they do
I'm not alright

Verse 2
Made to feel so fuckin scared
My only home is just up 95
Some play so ignorant
And some just aren't, let inside
But I know the secrets
That some try so hard to cover and hide
and...

Chorus
This doesn't make sense to me
Why judges, judge the way they do
I'm not alright

Verse 3
I look around at people
Pretending not to notice right from wrong
The one strength always to me
Fights so hard and it's ongoing
I'm torn by what I want
But what I know is I need to get away

Chorus
This doesn't make sense to me
Why judges, judge the way they do
I'm not alright

Chorus 2
Every other is when I'm safe from it
Sundays up, I am pulled back to this shit

I'm not alright

Somethings Bound To Go My Way

Written By: Bill Rightnour

Verse 1
Standing on Church St. on a Monday Night
Praying this cold November brings brand new light
I've seen it here before and so my heads held high
I'm still believin'

Chorus 1
There's something going on here

Verse 2
It's been a long time since I've felt this way
My last a quick whit stunner she left on Labor Day
Left a ten page letter said there were big mistakes
That we could never be together

Chorus 2
I'm moving on now

Verse 3
The leaves turn green again no loves in sight
Belief is growing older doesn't fit me all that right
Maybe I should leave it for someone who might
Run for miles with it

Chorus 3
I'm holding on now

Verse 4
I live with more regret than I'd care to say
I still have no answers its an evil hill to climb
I'll hang onto whatever gets me by
Somethings bound to

Chorus 4
Go my way
Come my way
Walk my way
Go my way
