Biography

Ryan Story is a fresh new face on the Nashville scene. A Palm Beach, FL transplant, this young artist has made a life out of writing, recording and producing on Music Row. While his music is not what you might expect to come off of Music Row, the songs and the sound raise the bar on what can be expected from this little music community.

Since the ripe old age of 6, Ryan has been inseparable from his guitar. His love for singing and song writing soon followed....Always the one to give credit where credit is due, Ryan has followed his heroes closely and gleaned as much as possible from their work. Producers like Mutt Lange, David Foster and of course Clive Davis have left an indelible mark on his sound and the way he approaches his recordings.

With the completion of his self titled debut CD "Story", and the formation of his touring band, management and marketing team, Ryan is embarking on the ride of his life. With the number of plays nearing 100,000 on Ryan’s MySpace page, the release of his CD and subsequent tour are on the horizon.

Lyrics

Hey Sierra

Written By: John Hardy, Ryan Story

Girl, there’s something I’ve been wanting to tell you,
Now for quite some time, that I’ve been holding back,
That new guy you got by your side, Sierra he just ain’t right,
He’s trying to change your life,

Your a girl from South Florida,
But he’s making you believe,
that’s not the way that your supposed to be...

Hey, Sierra
Get your head out of the clouds
Put your feet back on the ground
Hey, Sierra get your head out of the clouds

If you ask me, that ocean breeze,
Sure looks good blowing through your hair,
A total “Stop and Stare”

I can’t believe you would wanna leave,
What we have behind,
Sierra you’ve gotta change your mind...

Hey, Sierra
Get your head out of the clouds
Put your feet back on the ground
Hey, Sierra get your head out of the clouds

It’s up to you to change you mind,
But you’ve gotta know the truth,
Sierra, I LOVE YOU..

Hey, Sierra
Get your head out of the clouds
Put your feet back on the ground
Hey, Sierra get your head out of the clouds

Love Lessons Learned

Written By: Monty Holmes, John Hardy, Ryan Story

I couldn’t feel any worse if I’d planned it,
Losing you hurts so bad I can’t stand it,
Why’d I have to go and break my heart,

I’ve hit bottom and I’m runnin’ on emty,
Looking for a way to forgive me,
I’m thinkin‘ this bottle’s my place to start..

Here’s to love lessons learned,
From a fool that finally knows,
The heart that you break might be your own,
So I’ll raise a silent glass,
To remind me of the past and the scars I’ve earned,
Here’s to love lessons learned

Right now I don’t mind going nowhere,
Just for now, I think I need to stay there,
Soak a while in my misery,

I’ll always need the past to remind me,
Of the pain I’m gonna leave behind me,
Some healing time is all I need...

Here’s to love lessons learned,
From a fool that finally knows,
The heart that you break might be your own,
So I’ll raise a silent glass,
To remind me of the past and the scars I’ve earned,
Here’s to love lessons learned

Whatever You Do

Written By: Monty Holmes, John Hardy, Ryan Story

I ain’t nothin’ but a heartache,
And I ain’t looking for a heart to break,
I might be the biggest mistake,
You could ever make.

You caught me at a real bad time,
I’ve still got somebody on my mind
Girl you keep on comin’ on,
So let me set you straight,

I don’t wanna want, what you’ve got.
I don’t wanna be, what you need
The only thing that I can handle right now
Is just being me

I know your wanting more than a one night stand,
But I don’t wanna be, Nobody’s man,
I don’t wanna feel your touch, but to tell you the truth
Baby, I don’t want you to stop,
Whatever you do

I’m comin’ off of losing everything,
I just tossed away a golden ring,
I swear I didn’t come in here looking for,
Nobody else

But the more I wanna walk away,
The more you make me wanna stay,
Girl Your making it way to hard,
To convince Myself

I don’t wanna want, what you’ve got.
I don’t wanna be, what you need
The only thing that I can handle right now
Is just being me

I know your wanting more than a one night stand,
But I don’t wanna be, Nobody’s man,
I don’t wanna feel your touch, but to tell you the truth
Baby, I don’t want you to stop,
Whatever you do

Waiting on Your Love

Written By: Ryan Story - Mark Stephen Jones

I’m livin’ in a world, of fast cars and hungry girls,
But don’t you worry baby,
I’m waiting on your love

Temptation all around, big cities and little towns
Baby, your the only one,
I’m waiting on your love

I’m waiting on your love,
You better get ready, cause here I come,
There’s a fire inside, building up,
I’m waiting on your love..

Your every song I sing,
All my hopes, and all my dreams,
I can’t live without you baby,
I’m waiting on your love

I’m waiting on your love,
You better get ready, cause here I come,
There’s a fire inside, building up,
I’m waiting on your love..

I’m 90 miles away,
Wide open down the interstate
So let your dress slide down you shoulder,
I’m waiting on your love...

I’m waiting on your love,
You better get ready, cause here I come,
There’s a fire inside, building up,
I’m waiting on your love..

Must Be Lovin' You Right

Written By: Ryan Story - Monty Holmes - John Hardy

Don’t think I don’t know how lucky I am
Everybody in town wants to be your man

I don’t know what it is that I do that keeps you around
But I know that I ain’t gonna try to figure it out
It’s a feeling I ain’t gonna fight
Cause I know it when I look in your eyes
I must be lovin’ you right

It’s so hard to believe, I wanna slap myself
You wanna wake up with me and nobody else

I don’t know what it is that I do to keep you around
But I know that I ain’t gonna try to figure it out
It’s a feeling I ain’t gonna fight
Cause I know it when I look in your eyes
I must be lovin’ you right

It’s so good, so good
Girl You got me knockin’ on wood

I don’t know what it is that I do to keep you around
But I know that I ain’t gonna try to figure it out
It’s a feeling I ain’t gonna fight
Cause I know it when I look in your eyes
I must be lovin’ you right

This Ain't Love

Written By: Ryan Story - Trent Jeffcoat - Mark Stephen Jones

This ain’t love, I’m just goin’ through a stage,
Of sappy songs and movies, and romance on a page,
This ain’t love, I know what love’s about,
I’ve been there a time or two, and can say without a doubt,
This ain’t love...

Her lips, her hair, her laugh her skin,
Are just a fantasy,
Her voice, her scent, her confidence,
Are just not meant for me,
All I have to do, is look into her eyes and see,
This ain’t love...

This ain’t love, I don’t know what it is,
The butterfly’s and sweaty palms, the whole world on a kiss,
But this ain’t love, cause love’s a two way street,
No matter how much that I love her, if she don’t love me,
This ain’t love...

Her lips, her hair, her laugh her skin,
Are just a fantasy,
Her voice, her scent, her confidence,
Are just not meant for me,
All I have to do, is look into her eyes and see,
This ain’t love...

Love's Not Through with You

Written By: Ryan Story - Monty Holmes - John Hardy

You gotta stop blaming the world for your broken heart,
And start finding a way to stop falling apart,
Baby, I’m feeling the pain that your going through,
I know your thinkin’ that your through with love,
But baby, love’s not through with you..

You’ve gotta stop givin’ up and start holdin’ on,
Lettin’ go doesn’t always mean you’ll be alone,
Right now you can’t find your way back no matter what you do,
I know your thinkin’ that your through with love,
But baby, love’s not through with you..

I know you bitter now as you can be,
But love’s got a plan for you, that you can’t see,
Your gonna find the place where promises come true,
I know your thinkin’ that your through with love,
But baby, love’s not through with you

You'll Always Be My One

Written By: Ryan Story

I never meant for things to turn out this way,
I never meant for your heart to break,
What I’d give just to go back again,
But it’s too late

I missed all my chances to show you, I loved you.
Prove there was nothing else above you,
It’s something I’ll fight for the rest of my life,
Always...

I know I’ve already lost you,
And I can’t change what’s done
Still I want you to know
That you’ll always be my one

I’m sorry baby I made you need to turn and run...

I hope one day you find what your looking for,
And you finally smile like you couldn’t before,
But never forget everything we could’ve been,
Always...

I know I’ve already lost you,
And I can’t change what’s done
Still I want you to know
That you’ll always be my one

I’m sorry baby I made you need to turn and run...

I pray when you find him, he holds you like I didn’t,
Treats you like there truly isn’t,
Any other girl in the world,
Like you deserve...

Holding On or Letting Go

Written By: Ryan Story, Monty Holmes, John Hardy

What happened baby, I thought I was number one
If you really love me, tell me what’s going on
If your really gonna leave, don’t keep the truth from me
Baby, I’ve gotta know

Should I be holding on, or letting go,
Baby, just tell me now,
If your gonna tear my world apart
You owe it to my heart
Should I be holing on, or letting go

I wish we could just runaway, maybe down to mexico
Where we could lay around all day, and let all our troubles go,
And you would be in love again, just like you were back then
But this is now and I’ve gotta know

Should I be holding on, or letting go,
Baby, just tell me now,
If your gonna tear my world apart
You owe it to my heart
Should I be holing on, or letting go
