BandCountrySinger/Songwriter

I write pop songs with a country edge and a rock sensibility.

Biography

I am a 40-year veteran of the music business. I write songs but not prolifically. I really need to feel an emotional connection before I can create. My first submission, All Of Us, is a country-pop tune written for a family reunion after 2 elders of the family had passed on. Kind of a circle of life song that came about with the realization that love is indeed - everything.

Lyrics

All Of Us

Written By: Jon Lehti


All Of Us

Verse 1
You set the stage for all of us
You played your part, you didn’t fuss
You did your best and that’s enough
Enough for all of us

Verse 2
We went away to start our lives
Always welcomed back inside
To where the heart of hearts resides
The home of all of us

Chorus 1
How did you feel at the end of your days?
Did you receive back the love that you gave?
And did you know that you’re taking away
A part of all of us?

Chorus2
How will you feel at the end of your life?
How will you know it’s been worth all the strife?
The answer rests in the depths of your heart
The heart of all of us

Verse 3
Somehow the sadness fades away
Somehow the world’s a kinder place
Love is the answer, love is the way
Just look at all of us
Look at all of us

Toe The Line

Written By: Jon Lehti

Everytime I think of you, I fail to understand
Why I had to leave so long ago
Evertime I stumbled back, you gave a helping hand
Why I had to leave, I'll never know

The days flew so fast I never saw them
Flying in a daze most of the time
If I could only see you once, you'd never cry again
I'd be there to help you toe the line

But time becomes a problem
When you're searching for a home
Many times I thought I had it solved then
I turned around and you were gone

If I had a hundred years to spend alone with you
It'd probably seem just like a day
"Cause I know I wouldn't change and, you wouldn't want me to
Not much more that I can say

I pray the good out-weighed the bad times
I'd hate to think you're not where you belong
I never said I'm sorry, you knew it anyway
That's the point behind this simple song

The days flew so fast, I never saw them
Flying in a daze most of the time
If I could only see you once, you'd never cry again
I'd be there to help you toe the line
I'll be there to help you toe the line
