I'm a singer/songwriter. I love music. I play guitar, bass, drums, lead vocals, harmony and back-up vocals. I do all the recording and producing. I write my own lyrics. I would love to have a full band that I could work on new stuff with. I'm on this to share my stuff with the music community.

Lyrics

Betterfly

Written By: Jonny Melo

And it came out of nowhere
Unexpectedly thrust
Pair of not-so-broad-shoulders to bear

Through confusion and traffic jams
And county crisp air
Thought he heard you say have a nice life

And when time feels like changing
All the plans you’ve been making
Maybe then
You’ll realise who
Who’s you’re best friend

I think Love is a mystery
And hate just perplexes me
And it roams with no deference or shame

But it fears every one of us
If truth must be known
It’s our image that puts it to shame

And when time feels like changing
All the plans you’ve been making
Understand it’s revealing
All the pain you’re concealing

Maybe then
You’ll realise who
Who’s you’re best friend

Maybe then

Who’s you’re best friend?

I know what we should do
We’ll go just me and you
Off to New York City
The summer sights so pretty and warm

Let’s get into the car
Don’t think that the drive’s too far
And besides as long as you’re there with me
I think that I could drive all night

And I can’t begin to sort through
All this sorrow that I see
And to offer up a kind word
To hope it dulls the tragedy
We are ponds between the lines of the pages of history

And all that I could do was pray
That God would give them strength today
And His Love would get them through each day
Ohh ehh

She’s so in Love with me
I hope she’ll marry me
I’m gonna ask her at the Switchfoot show
Nobody around will know
You say yes and we will drive on home in the ice and snow

And now she walks my way
Her beauty makes my knees give way
And the room is full of souls in bliss
As they joyfully enjoy their first kiss
It’s as though I’ve seen a polar negative

And I can’t begin to sort through
All the joyfulness surrounding me
I’m a pond between the lines of the pages of history
Nervous laughter springs fourth
And uniting us in harmony

She rises up and smiles my way
And instantly I’m filled and I pray
Thank you for this glorious day

Ohh ehh

Caught from the corner
Of a theatre of faces
Your windows aligning with mine

A mind that’s been stolen
And a heart that’s been broken
It’s only a matter of time

To ask that wherefore I’m making
Making a fool of myself
Maybe I’m crazy and maybe I’m sane
But tonight I’m in Love with you girl

A plot line that’s tired
And a deepening desire
Resisting and knowing
I should

Distraction from falling
But your eyes keep on calling
I’d make it all change if I could

To ask that wherefore I’m making
Making a fool of myself
Maybe I’m crazy and maybe I’m sane
But tonight I’m in Love with you girl
I’m in Love with you girl

To ask that wherefore I’m making
Making a fool of myself
Maybe I’m crazy and maybe I’m sane
But tonight I’m in Love with you girl

(Maybe I’m crazy and maybe I’m sane)
(I’m in Love with you girl)
(Making a fool of myself)
(Maybe I’m crazy and maybe I’m sane)
(I’m in Love with you girl)
(Making a fool of myself)
(I’m in Love with you girl)
(Maybe I’m crazy and maybe)
(I’m in Love with you girl)

Discography

None I just have songs I've recorded. I haven't released any albums and I've never been signed to a record deal.

Set List

Depends on how long a set I have I guess. I like to do my own stuff but also to cover songs with my own arrangement.
