Biography

Born and raised in a small town in Louisiana, I have since been all over the states, and lived in California for some time. I have never been one to write songs for the sake of writing songs. It is simply not me. I have to have a story to tell. I have to write about what is really happening in my life. Thus, you will find no meaningless songs here. No songs about nothing, about the shallow and unimportant, or the miscellaneous look-at-me-I-want-to-be-famous nonsense that fills our airwaves these days. Each song is a moment from my life captured in verse and melody, a piece of me, and the essence of what I was feeling when it was written.

So, if you have a few minutes to spare, please listen, carefully, to the words--because the words are everything.

Listen to these stories, my stories, My Burden...if you will. You just might find that they are your own as well.

Lyrics

Better than Him

Written By: Justin Paul Esthay

And for you I went out on a limb, and left my whole world behind.
And though so much has changed between now and then, I know I’m still justified.
When I say…

That I must confess.
That I think that I.
Can love you better than him.
And if put to the test.
Well I know that I.
Would love you better than him.
And though you’d never guess, but loving you, is the meaning of my life.

Words placed to music forlornly implore.
My heartfelt attempts to describe.
That I’m ever proclaiming never understood.
My heart sings your lullaby.
It sings…

So I must confess.
That I think that I.
Can love you better than him.
And if put to the test.
Well I know that I.
Would love you better than him.
And though you’d never guess, but loving you, is the meaning of my life.

And I know that you think that we’re oceans apart.
But we’re more alike than you’d like to admit.
So how can you think that he’s better than me?
I’d never betray you, like that piece of shit.

So I must protest.
That I know that I.
Can love you better than him.
And if given the chance.
Well I promise that I.
Will love you better than him.
And though you’d never guess, but loving you, is the meaning of my life.

And for you I went out on a limb.
And sang you this lullaby.

Eternally

They say I should not reminisce, but it helps to pass the time. That I must spend without you girl, though it brings no peace of mind. And I've tried hard to forget about you babe, to pretend that I don't feel. This loneliness, that's killing me inside, to know I love you still. So as long as there's still breath in me. And as long as oceans send their waves to crash upon the beach. I will always love you girl. So why won't you...love me? You could have forgiveness, if I could have your heart. A suitable replacement is all I need, for the one you've torn apart. Yeah I've tried hard to forget about you babe, to pretend this is not real. But I can't hide, how I feel
inside anymore, to know I love you still. So as long as there's still breath in me. And as long as oceans send their waves to crash upon the beach. I will always love you girl. So why won't you...love
me? I miss your smile, and the way you smell. I miss the way, that your
hair fell. Down in your face, when we made love. Why don't you miss anything about me? You know, not a day goes by, that I don't still think about you. You mean everything to me. And if ever you wonder, will I be there tomorrow? Remember this. As long as there's still breath in me. As long as oceans send their waves to crash upon the beach. I will always love you my girl. So why won't you... love me anymore?
