It begins with blue and achieves colors the human eye cannot define. The same shade of blue that hangs over cornstalks at midnight. Somewhere between green and violet our ears taste the colors from Ramsey's mind probing lyrics and intoxicating melodies.

Biography

Ramsey is a singer/songwriter from Cincinnati, OH.
Having been raised on black and white B-movies (Zombies included), James Dean, Bettie Page, Jim Morrisson, Bono's lyrics, the Beatles with a side of Radiohead, music has become not only an addiction, but as necessary as oxygen.

In his current project, he wrote all the original material and has teamed up with Cincinnati powerhouses: Brian Lovely, Chris Arduser, and Teddy Wilburn. For live performances, he calls upon the musical talents of Aaron Seals, Ryan Noland, and Phillip Micheal Holt.

Lyrics

I Can't Get Enough Of You Baby

Written By: Ramsey

i can't get enough of you baby
i can't get enough and it's cruel
intoxicate, unsober me
i don't know what's come over me
so what's a boy supposed to do.

i can't get enough of you baby
i can't get enough and it's cruel
inebriated, haunting me
i know that you're on to me
i'd do anything you'd ask me to.

i can't get enough of you baby
i can't get enough and it's cruel
day and night and night and day
i want you in everyway
i feel like i'm playing the fool
yeah, i feel like i'm playing the fool.

Lover-. Lover-.

Lover-. Lover-.
Lover-. Lover-.

Sweet Virgin Mistress

Written By: Ramsey

chamomille incense
turning on the radio
vixen in denim
wondering now which way to go
baby's breathe and cigarettes
distant rumble of the storm

it's alright, it's alright.
it's alright, it's alright.

crimsonless clover
it's our own private show
crooked with halo
smirking by the candle's glow
black and white rainbow
no one else is going to know

it's alright, it's alright.
it's alright, it's alright.

sweet virgin mistress
turning the lights down low
commonfolk princess
there's no where else we have to go
a mono stereo
sing to me soft and slow

it's alright, it's alright.
it's alright, it's alright.

Tho Lovers We're Not Known To Be

Written By: Ramsey

tho lovers we're not known to be
of her i've often dreamt
and tonight i ponder the variables
that makes my heart exempt.

tho lovers we're not known to be
i'll dream of her by midnight's wonder
try to hide that meandering streak
for the rippling seems to find another -lover.

the glare of green and smirk
dream to hold the heart wonder
what lies within the space
where i might hold
this shapeless lover.

tho lovers we're not known to be
we might be a different sort
for the passions chatter to my thoughts
and my eyes try to avert

the glare of green and smirk
dream to hold the heart wonder
what lies within the space
where i might hold
this shapeless lover.

tho lovers we're not known to be
of her i've often dreamt
tonight i curse the variables
that make my heart exempt.
