My music is pop rock music, maybe alternative.

Biography

I find it hard describing my own music, so I'll describe what it isn't. Difficult. It's straight forward pop rock music, but I believe it's catchy and written well. I'm influenced by I mother earth, our lady peace, dream theater, jonny lang, joe satriani, green day, Dave Grohl, there are many more. I don't know what sets me apart from everybody else, I just do my thing musically. I hate my day job, I love to write and play music, it is what I am. My story? I'm a Newfoundlander at heart. Newfoundland is the eastern most province in Canada. I lived there till I was 21, then moved here to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and have been here for 7 years, working and performing around with different bands. 1 of which was an original band called "Sinclair".

Lyrics

If only you knew

Written By: Michael Jenkins

Verse:
Just sit tight my little baby
He's bound to show up
Keep yourself busy little baby
I know the morning has come, but it's never gone
He's on his way home in a hurry
I don't deny you're in pain.
I'm here to keep you company until the moment he's greeted with shame.

Chorus:
Brush against my shoulder, you should know there's something I need to say
Eye's do wonders, for all that's yet to come. I'd share my scene with you, if only you knew.

Verse 2:
Just be patient little baby
let's pass the time away.
I know you miss the way he loves you, but I can help you escape anything.
I'm sure he's thinkin' about you
no need to cry anymore
All the hurt will be gone in an instant, if he walked through the door.

Chorus:
Brush against my shoulder.
You should know there's something I need to say.
Eyes do wonders, for all that's yet to come. I'd share my scene with you, if only you knew.

Chorus

The man insane

Written By: Michael Jenkins

Verse:

Love of my life is neverlasting
Turning the page to find that nothing's there
Sobering up only to get drunk again
If I don't I will end up scared
Family's gone I don't know how to
live on my own, is there an easier way?
Burried in quicksand
I clench the earth as I pray for another day

Half chorus:

When the ocean floor breaks away
The foundation of me doesn't stand a chance
and the world is afraid

Verse:

Another sad reality's gone
If I knew better I would know for sure
For seventy days I wasn't human
hid from the sights of everyone. Who's pure?
Nobody tied me down is that wrong
or is it just a loss of faith
Sobering up was so far from my head
I could've been the man insane

Chorus:

When the ocean floor breaks away
The foundation of me doesn't stand a chance
and the world is afraid
We search all the shores for the sea
I cannot find the place I should be

Chorus:

When the ocean floor breaks away
The foundation of me doesn't stand a chance
and the world is afraid
We search all the shores for the sea
I cannot find the place I should be.
