I write sad songs for happy people... Songs steeped in rich sonic detail and atmosphere... Songs that keep ringing true even after dozens of listens....

Biography

Not much to say. I like to write songs. I've been doing it for years, and today I decided to roll the dice and enter one of them into the ISC. Simple as that.

Lyrics

Who I Am

Written By: Jason Rubero

Ten hours at work today
What do I do? I wish I knew
Everyone seems to know but me
I've been so busy making a living that I forgot to live
And what would I give?
To find something besides the coal in these mines
I'm running out of hours...

Analee, I just want to be who I am
Who I am
Analee, I just want to be who I am
Who I am

And what about our boy?
What if his track's already set like mine?
It would be so fine if he never had to go
Down in that hole where dreams disappear
He needs a map out of here
He needs release, he needs direction
Every little dream just needs some protection

Analee, I just want to be who I am
Who I am
Analee, I just want to be who I am
Who I am

And all the while something like regret thickens like tar
And falls to the bottom of this life
That I just realized is mine
And I'm running out of time...

Ann, you know I want the best for us
But how can I go on, when darkness is my dawn?
And my day is just weak lamplight?
I know I've got to fight
But the way I feel today
Where there's a will there's just no way
I know I've got to swallow my pride
But I'm choking on it deep inside

Analee, I just want to be who I am
Who I am
Analee, I just want to be who I am
Who I am
Who I am
