Lyricist, songwriter, lover of language & music by nature. I've written R & B, Country, Rock--even Bubble Gum & Techno--so nothing is out of bounds or out of range. I've also got radio experience and a great speaking voice, so I'm also looking for background, cameo, voice-over or narration work.

Biography

Poet/lyricist/songwriter from my earliest memories, constantly writing my own songs, lyrics & jingles as a kid. I've got a lifelong love of language, an ear for music & a talent for putting words & music together. Give me a tune & I'll give you the words, or I'll give you a whole song-- though I don't play an instrument. Heavily influenced by the Beatles & other foundational rock, as well as by some current acts & trends-- from R & B to Country to Rock-- even Bubble Gum & Techno. I've also got a great speaking voice for use in music or voice work. Send me an e & we'll see what we can put together.

You Tell Me

You Tell Me
© 2006 Adam Stohlman

You tell me
Yeah, you tell me
That you love me so
You could never go
Away. . .

Hey, hey. . .

Should I believe you?
Or should I leave you?
Is it true
What you say,
Or should I
Run away
Before you do?

I don’t know who
To trust anymore. . .

Oh, no. . .

Love is hard
To describe,
Love confuses me—

Love is truth,
Love is lie,
But love can set you free. . .

You tell me,
Yeah, you tell me,
That you’re true to me
And you’ll always be
The same—

No games. . .

Should I listen?
And take your kissin’?
Will you stand
By your word,
Or could I
Just have heard
What I want to?

‘Cause I want you
To be real with me?

Oh, yeah. . .

Love is hard
To describe,
Love confuses me—

Love is truth,
Love is lie,
But love can set you free. . .

You tell me,
Yeah, you tell me,
That our love will last,
It will never pass
Away. . .

Hey, hey. . .

Do you mean it,
Or should I screen it?
Are you playin’
With me,
Or should I
Stay and see
It’s forever?

Love’s forever
And ever with you?

Oh, yeah. . .

Love is real,
Love is blind,
Love is all you need—

Love is true,
Love is kind,
And love can set you free. . .

Dream. . .

Dream. . .
© 2000 Adam Stohlman

In the middle of a field,
In back of a barn,
There’s an old man sippin’ cider
From a jar—

There’s a young man
Playin’ guitar,
Layin’ in the weeds
Starin’ up at a star—

Dream. . .

Uh-huh. . .

In the middle of her head,
In the back of her mind,
There’s a black and white movie
Playin’ all the time—

But her leadin’ man
Is so hard to find,
She’s thinkin’ ‘bout turnin’ to a life of crime—

Dream. . .

Uh-huh. . .

When you dream a dream,
Nothin’s quite what it seems,
You can be yourself,
If you know what I mean--

It’s a world away,
It’s a place apart,
Dream a dream today,
And keep it deep in your heart. . .

In the middle of a street,
In back of a bar,
There’s a young man
Sippin’ somethin’ from a jar—

There’s an old man
Strummin’ guitar,
Standin’ on his feet
Starin’ up at a star—

Dream. . .

Uh-huh. . .

In the middle of a scene
From the end of a dream,
There’s an old man sippin’ somethin’
From a stream—

There’s a young man
Strummin’ a theme
While a lonely girl watches
On a movie screen—

Now dream. . .

Uh-huh. . .

When you dream a dream,
Nothin’s quite what it seems,
You can be yourself,
If you know what I mean—

It’s a world away,
It’s a place apart,
Dream a dream today,
And keep it deep in your heart. . .

Dream. . .

Uh-huh. . .

Dream, dream, dream, yeah. . .

The Lover That You Left Behind

The Lover That You Left Behind
© 1999 Adam Stohlman

We promised to each other
We’d live as one,
And it ain’t so much the things
You’ve said or done—

It’s that special kind of glance
As he passes through your mind

That shows your love ain’t left
The lover that you left behind. . .

Now, I’ve got lots of things
I’m thinkin’ through,
And lots of them are thoughts
I’ve thought of you—

Are you sorry that you’re sleepin’
With me beside your side

‘Cause your love ain’t left
The lover that you left behind.?

Baby, you and me,
We can make sweet memories—
Moments that we know
Are gonna last—

But how can we move on
‘Til your thoughts of him are gone,
And we’ve both left our lovers
In the past?

There’s so much ahead
For me and you,
So many things for us
To see and do—

But will you still be with me
As we ride on down the line

If your love ain’t left
The lover that you left behind?

There’s nothin’ more for me
To say to you,
But there’s somethin’ you should know
Before I’m through—

I’ll stay with you forever,
Until the end of time—

'Til your love has left the lover
That you left behind. . .

Baby, you and me,
We're gonna make sweet memories—
Moments that we know
Are gonna last—

We'll go on and on,
'Til your thoughts of him are gone,
And we’ve both left our lovers
In the past. . .

And we’ve both left our lovers
In the past. . .
