Singer/Songwriter in the most literal sense.. I've been asked on numeral occasions to describe my genre but haven't landed on anything that stuck thus far.. I draw heavy influence from songwriters such as Taylor Swift and Chris Carrabba(Dashboard Confessional), and my music reflects that..
I hope it finds you well!

Setting Fire

Written By: Justin Wend (Hear Me Roar)

When I met you, you were setting fire to a love note underneath the docks
You said you’d rather die a hero than live a coward who let him get the best of you
grabbed my hand and led me fearless, the last night that I took the long way home
I walked you to your car, wrapped me in your arms like I’d been there before

You make me see fireworks and shades of blue that I’ve never seen before
Knock me down, spin me around and take me right back there
You set me on fire.. you set me on fire

Our first date I let you pick the movie Held the door and didn’t even look when you walked by.. even though I wanted to
The street was wet and you spun around in your high heels just to show off your legs
I caught you when you almost fell and we laughed it off, But I(emphasized!) fell that night

You make me see fireworks and shades of blue that I’ve never seen before
Knock me down, spin me around and take me right back there
You set me on fire.. you set me on fire

Its crazy how someone you knew so well, like a ghost turns away
You slammed the door so hard, I begged you say anything, say anything, anything
Fell in love that sexy brain of yours, you were so smart, so calm, never meant to hurt anyone
But all it took was one look? And you helped him with his shirt
As it lie there on the floor
So here I stand 4 states away on a parkway setting fire to a love note that I wrote and never stamped

Silly Girl

Written By: Justin Wend (Hear Me Roar)

Got burned again didn’t you?
With the same charade he put you on all thru high school
But you welcomed it, every look, every touch and every step
Silly girl life’s not a fairytale
Silly girl, you wait and wait but he’ll never find you well

Try to take a step in the right direction but I keep falling down
Maybe it’s me, maybe I was blind and couldn’t see what was staring in front of me

Silly girl life’s not a fairytale, silly girl you’ll never see the light
Silly girl gotta make believe that everything is alright when it’s falling down
On you.. again

And I know your vanity doesn’t seem to mind too much but I hate to see you sold soo short
Shorter than you hike your littlest skirt, but then again what would I know

I’m just a stupid boy, watching this stupid girl drowned in all the faces of the deaf dumb boys who’ve let her down
I’ll never stop believing in you, no I won’t stop

Well you’re not even 21 yet and the bottle looks soo good from this bed you’ve made
Well I hate to be the bad guy, but love you’ve got a lot to hate

Well maybe it’s me, maybe I live in a dream land where everyone, everything takes life
Maybe it’s love, maybe it’s lust in the worst case
But I’ll never know, I’ll never know why

Count it Down

Written By: Justin Wend (Hear Me Roar)

He says you’ve got stars in your eyes, you’re just a little bit in love
and it’s getting harder to find when everyone’s so out of touch

and I know you’ve got it somewhere inside maybe we’ll luck out
..or maybe anything else

tonight, we are all beautiful
tonight we are all in love again
tonight, we are all beautiful
tonight, we are all in love again

And when sex got easy, love just took a back seat
I swear I’ve seen this before, a little girl with such a big bad heart

and I know you’ve got it somewhere inside maybe we’ll luck out
..or maybe anything else

Do you wanna see it, feel it, touch it believe it
count it down, count it down
and feel
