Biography

Eddy Faulkner is a singer/songwriter from Arlington, VA. He got his start in music at a very young age. His first serious instrument was the Trumpet which was introduced to him by his parents in 2001. He participated in his elementary, middle, and high school concert and marching bands with the trumpet. After playing the video game “Rock Band” though in February of 2008, he knew that deep down inside he wanted to do something else with music. So that winter he got his parents to get him a drum set and he taught himself the drums. This is when the lyrics started pouring out of him and by the spring of 2009 he had written over 100 songs. Since he had all these songs and no music to go along with them he got a keyboard for his birthday that spring. He then taught himself the basics on piano and the chords needed to build the melodies for his songs. His interest for writing and putting together songs increased and that summer he got his first guitar. He also taught himself guitar and then singing came into play.

During the fall of 2009 he formed a rock band called “The Remedy” with two of his friends from high school. He started writing songs for his band and they performed at many places around northern Virginia. These performances helped build his confidence at playing instruments and singing in front of a crowd. Eventually though the band fell apart because he had to go to college that fall and he had no more time for a band.

This is when during the summer of 2010 he put his music up online for the first time as a solo act. Earlier that year he actually started to write songs that were in a different style than his band. So that summer he put those songs and other songs he wrote on Facebook, YouTube, and many other sites for everyone to see. He also covered popular songs by other artists and put his own spin on them as well. “My favorite part about covering songs is making them my own. I think that is one of the marks of a true artist; when he or she can change a song around and have people still like it.”

To this day he still puts up videos and songs for his fans and other people to see. He has now thousands of fans on Facebook, thousands upon thousands of views on YouTube, and an international fan base with fans from the United States, Brazil, Indonesia, Australia, England, France, India, Portugal, and many more countries. “Since I started in 2010, I didn’t picture myself with the amount of support I have now from fans and friends across the world. This is truly a blessing.” His love of music is still strong and he is exploring new instruments and is writing new songs and melodies every day. “I love every second of this journey so far, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Music is my passion, love, and one true escape from this world.”

If they only knew Lyrics

Written By: Eddy Faulkner

If they only knew

(Guitar Intro):

(Instrumental Intro):

V1:
Do you know what its like
To feel so alone
and especially when you see your other half
But they just don't know

V2:
How you feel about them
and how you want to love them
But they just don't know

C1:
and if only they knew
How you feel about them
It would solve everything
and if only they knew
How you feel about them
It would solve everything, in the end

V3:
and everyday, I look outside
I see her in the sky
Oh how I wish, I was with her now
But she just dosen't know

V4:
and all of the clouds
Shed the tears, the tears that I feel now
Oh, especially since I'm not with her now
Cause she just dosen't know

C2:
and if only they knew
How you feel about them
It would solve everything
and if only they knew
How you feel about them
It would solve everything, in the end

V5:
and I cry myself to sleep everyday
Cause I can't stop
Feeling this way
Cause she just doesn't know

V6:
and everyday, its the same again
Teardrops, and shooting stars again
Oh I wish this love wasan't so, far away
Cause she just doesn't know

C3:
and if only they knew
How you feel about them
It would solve everything
and if only they knew
How you feel about them
It would solve everything, in the end

"Gone" Lyrics

Written By: Eddy Faulkner

Gone

(Piano Intro):

V1 (Piano / Guitar only):
Yesterday, was a sad song
Cause what I did, was all wrong
I gave up my love, for another one
and then she left me, and now shes gone

V2 (Other instruments enter):
Now I don't know what I did
I'm trying to piece it back together in my head
But all the time, they just distract me

V3:
'nd they make me feel, what I don't wanna feel
Cause they just want whats best for me

C1:
Oh, but she, is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around
Cause she, is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around

V4:
and all the lights, are blinding me
They change me everytime, I look at them

V5:
They ask me, everything
and they want to know, everything

C2:
'nd I tell them
That she is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around
Cause she is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around
Cause she is what makes me whole
and she just dosen't know
How I feel, and how I apologize for everything

Bridge:
and my feelings aren't gonna away just yet
Cause I'm feeling for her still, and its gone instead
and I can't move on, until shes back with me

C3:
But I remember that she, is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around
Cause she, is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around

C4:
Cause she, is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around
Cause she, is gone
and I don't know if I can turn this around

Shine Your Light

Written By: Eddy Faulkner

"Shine Your Light"

(Intro)

V1:
You've been searchin' your whole life
For the reasons why they never
Pay attention to you
Or why they always seem to ignore you
and you're tired of all the same lines
That they always feed ya every single time
Oh they only do this because they're mad
That they don't have somethin' special

C1:
So just say what's on your mind
Don't be afraid this time
Cause you only got one life
and don't you worry about the small things and if they love ya
Just make sure that you try
Cause someday oh they won't be there
and you'll be wonderin' why you even cared
Oh so don't give up or give in or keep it inside
Just make sure that you shine your light

V2:
and every door leads to a wall
and all of your cards never help you at all
and you can't find all the answers
For the questions inside your mind
Like why they judge you every single time
Or why they bring you down every day
But don't you hide anymore

C2:
Just say what's on your mind
Don't be afraid this time
Cause you only got one life
and don't you worry about the small things and if they love ya
Just make sure that you try
Cause someday they won't be there
and you'll be wonderin' why you even cared
Oh so don't give up or give in or keep it inside
Just make sure that you shine your light yeah
