Biography

In order to fully express who I am as a Singer/ songwriter/ performer, I guess it's all in the genes.
I come from a family of singers and musicians.
Both of my parents and grand parents were students of song. My mother studied and was trained classically in Germany, while my father found his voice in the school and church choir in Virginia. My grandfather was a church choir director and had a radio sing along in Virginia. I grew up in a little place called Cocoa, Florida where everything was COUNTRY. But I grew up on the classical composers like Bach and Chopin. I think this bakground helped me to develop emotionally as a songwriter. I guess you could say that I like to draw people in emotionally so that they can relate and express what they may otherwise not be able to.
I think that music should help the listner to purge his or her emotions, experience change and feel uplifted.

Lyrics

I Should Have Been There For You

Written By: Michael P. Orrison

Yesterday I tried to call
You didn't answer once again
There's so much that I need to say
If you were only listening
Cause I've been doing some thinking
About my life and where I've been
The time is right to let you know
In loosing you I lost control
So baby where do I begin

I should have been there for you
I should have been holding you
I should have been loving you, last night
Instead I was gone from you
Chasing my dreams without you
Can you forgive a fool
I should have been there for you

I guess I should be honest
Instead of leading you on
I've been blameing you for failures
That were mine girl all along
I hope that you'll forgive me
For not believing in our love
So here am I my heart in hand
Hoping you will understand
And take me back girl once again

I should have been there for you
I should have been holding you
I should have been loving you last night
Instead I was gone from you
Chasing my dreams without you
Can you forgive a fool
I should have been there for you

You've got the right to doubt me
But don't you live your life without me
I don't want to be that kind of man anymore
And what you ask of me I'll do
Just say the word and I'll be there for you
just let me hold you once again
I want to be more than what I've been
So let me be you lover and your friend

I should have been there for you
I should have been holding you
I should have been loving you, last night
Instead I was gone from you
Chasing my dreams without you
Can you forgive a fool
I should have been there for you

I should have been there......

I should have been there......

I should have been there for you
