Biography

Nick Long did not uncover his talent for songwriting until late into his teen years. His continual exposure to music and literature throughout his adolescence planted the seeds for his love affair with songwriting. While exposed to the cultural pockets of Ohio University and Athens, OH, Nick began teaching himself the guitar and piano, which eventually led to a change in major in order to pursue music full time. During college, he played in a regional band, which gave him the opportunity to record and tour throughout the state. Due to physical distance and other life circumstances, the members of the group decided to bring an amicable end to its efforts, which led Nick to start a career on his own. Now living in Columbus, OH, he is preparing to release his first solo effort. Already, Nick has been approached by an independent filmmaker and 4 of his songs will be featured in a film scheduled to begin production in the summer of 2008.

Lyrics

Bright Lights

Written By: Nick Long

Bright lights can go out
If we let them fade if we get turned around
Bright lights remain strong
As long as we remember what we've got before it is gone

What if I lose my way
What if somehow I stray from the path
What if I lose my sight
Will you shine some light on all that we have

I Don't Love You

Written By: Nick Long

I don't love you like I love you yesterday
I've been trying to find a good reason why my love faded away

Maybe you gave me just what I needed and it's time to move on
Maybe I'm trying to run away from something that buried deep in my heart

Maybe I need to be alone so I can learn what love is about
And I'm sorry for thinking that you were the one who was gonna' help me figure it out

Love is a promise and we can't afford to lie
Trying to find a good reason why love keeps passing me by

Give You Away

Written By: Nick Long

If I ever hurt you as to lose your faith in me
Oh I hope to God that I would know to give you away
If I ever hurt you intentionally
Oh I hope to God that I would know to give you away

Oh I hope and pray
I hope and pray that I would know to give you away

If I ever blame you for my own insecurities
Oh I hope to God that would know to give you away
If I ever blame you for what I know you didn't do
Oh I hope and to God that I would know to give you away

If I ever lie to you to the one I supposedly love
Oh I hope to God that I would know to give you away
If I ever lie to you I may as well lie to myself
Oh I hope to God that I would know to give you away
