Biography

I've always believed that simple lyrics make for better songs. I am a singer/songwriter born and raised in Richmond, VA, now based in Los Angeles. I play pop with a good twist of blues and dance. On September 29th, 2012 I released my first solo EP and drove cross country gaining hundred of fans on Facebook and a solid competitive rank on Reverbnation. This summer I'm planning a tour from the west coast to the east coast and back in hopes to grow my fan base and connect with people on a more personal level. Hope you guys like my songs and "thanks for checkin' in."

Lyrics

Gotta Run

Written By: Taylor Ogburn

From the city I've gotta run.
Not leaving you behind. Not turning in my badge and gun.
It's this place i've gotta leave.
The walls are closing in and I can't seem to breathe.

I'll do whatever it costs.
I just feel like getting lost.

I've gotta run.
I've gotta break down these walls.
I've gotta shout out my name and hear no echos recall.
I've gotta run.
Gonna jump in my car.
Feel the wind in my hair.
Tell my home I said "so long."
I've gotta...

It's this errand I've gotta do.
Been on the top of my list since before I even met you.
And I'm not wasting no time.
See, my bags are packed, I'm on track in the running state of mind.

I've gotta run.
I've gotta break down these walls.
I've gotta shout out my name and hear no echos recall.
I've gotta run.
Gonna jump in my car.
Feel the wind in my hair.
Tell my home I said "so long."
I've gotta run.

Oh, now I've been waiting. Waiting.
Ooh I've been sitting in the barrel of a gun
Waiting on the big explosion
to send me where I want to go.
And no, it's not exactly what I want
but it's feels like that feels like it's taut.
Taunting me. Taunting me now.
Oh, I've been waiting. Wait. Waiting.

I've gotta run.
I've gotta break down these walls.
I've gotta shout out my name and hear no echos recall.
I've gotta run.
Gonna jump in my car.
Feel the wind in my hair.
Tell my home I said "so long."

Jack Of Broken Hearts (feat. David Graham)

Written By: Taylor Ogburn

My fair lady, I've got bad news.
The city has been split in two
and London Bridge is falling down.
And if you understand my metaphor,
you know just what I am working towards
I'll take the fall so you can keep your crown.

Cause I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts,
lost in a deck of cards,
in love with the Queen of Spades.
And I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts,
lost in a deck of cards,
in love with the Queen of Spades.
And every time I fall in love I find that there's a king who guards her heart, and she loves him too.

All the pictures faced down on their shelves,
I'm getting swallowed by farewells.
Your waving hand gave the signal for my death.
And every time I try to fight, I lose my hope and choke on pride.
Suddenly, I've got nothing left.

Cause I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts,
lost in a deck of cards,
in love with the Queen of Spades.
And I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts,
lost in a deck of cards,
in love with the Queen of Spades.
And every time I fall in love I find that there's a king who guards her heart, and she loves him too.

Sometimes I wish that could sweep her off her feet
and prove to her that we were meant to be.
But as soon as I say, "lose the king," she turns and says to me, "You're going against what we agreed."

Cause, I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts lost in a deck of cards.
Cause, I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts lost in a deck of cards.
Cause, I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts lost in a deck of cards.
Cause, I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts lost in a deck of cards.

Cause I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts,
lost in a deck of cards,
in love with the Queen of Spades.
And I'm the Jack of Broken Hearts,
lost in a deck of cards,
in love with the Queen of Spades.
And every time I fall in love I find that there's a king who guards her heart, and she loves him too.
She loves him too.
She loves him too.
She loves him too.
She loves him too.

Hints and Riddles

Written By: Taylor Ogburn

I would tip my hat
had I known your plan
but I mistook smoke signals in the sky.
Cause when I gave the clouds a glance
the wind had done it's vicious dance,
and the heart you had drawn had broken over time.

So save me the hints and riddles.
Meet me right in the middle.

No need to steal my heart
cause I'd give it to you if that's what you want.
Don't have to try so hard.
Here, just take my heart.

I heard you made a card
to send me from afar
but the mailman gave it to the wrong address
I'm sure you worked so hard drawing all those tiny hearts
but the "I love you" was lost on someone else

So save me the hints and riddles.
Love me, but just a little.

No need to steal my heart
cause I'd give it to you if that's what you want.
Don't have to try so hard.
Here, just take my heart.

Ooh
Forget all the plot points, first sight is when I fell.
Ooh
So don't you worry darling, love stories write themselves.

So save me the hints and riddles.
Meet me right in the middle.

No need to steal my heart
cause I'd give it to you if that's what you want.
Don't have to try so hard.
Here, just take my heart.
No need to steal my heart
cause I'd give it to you if that's what you want.
Don't have to try so hard.
Here, just take my heart.

Love Too Soon

Written By: Taylor Ogburn

When my room is dark,
and my drink isn't far,
that's when my mind begins to churn.
So I typed out that text,
filled with misspelled words and drunk regrets,
trying to keep my way with words.

Cause I just wanna be mad at you.
Take my phone and maybe smash it in two.
Cause everything you're saying,
everything you say.
You're right, I'm wrong it's true,
I called it "love" too soon.

I played the perfect man.
Took my time and waited to hold your hand.
But now I can tell my patience was in vain.
I folded my cards
Cause you can't always win betting on a Jack of Hearts.
And oh, I don't know, did you ever feel the same?

Cause I just wanna be mad at you.
Take my phone and maybe smash it in two.
Cause everything you're saying,
everything you say.
You're right, I'm wrong it's true,
I called it "love" too soon.

It'll never work if you're not even going to try.
So I'll spend my nights wondering why? Why? Why why why?

Cause I just wanna be mad at you.
Take my phone and maybe smash it in two.
Cause everything you're saying,
everything you say.
You're right, I'm wrong it's true,
You called it "love" too.
Cause I just wanna be mad at you.
Take my phone and maybe smash it in two.
Cause everything you're saying,
everything you say.
You're right, I'm wrong it's true,
I called it "love" too soon.
