Acoustic rhythm piano melody, vocal and background strings. Style: a mix between epic soundtracks, soft pop, ballads and who knows what more...? But after all, my own thing.

Biography

I am playing keyboards and piano for quite some years now. Starting very young, I enjoyed hitting the keys of my grandma's dusty and out-of-tune piano. I guess you can say that I am not a classic musician as I play "by the ear", without using staff paper or such. I like the sound of piano combined with vocal harmony and strings.
I am influenced by so many artists... Daniel Powter, Five For Fighting, John Mayer, ...

Lyrics

Chase The Blue Skies

Written By: Tom Dekleyn

IF LIFE DOESN’T BRING YOU THE THINGS YOU LIKE
IT IS EASY TO LET YOURSELF GO

IF ALL WHAT’S LEFT IS TO RIDE A BIKE
AND WINTERS MIGHT HAVE NO MORE SNOW

CHASE THE BLUE SKIES – SEE THE SUN RISE
CHASE THE BLUE SKIES – FIND YOUR PARADISE

YOUR JOB LOOKS MORE LIKE A MONSTER SITE
AND FRIENDS ARE ONLY IN CYBER SPACE

THE LIGHT OF THE SUN DOES’T SHINE SO BRIGHT
AND DAYS FLY BY LIKE NASCAR RACE

CHASE THE BLUE SKIES – SEE THE SUN RISE

ALL I SAY, YOU DON’T HAVE TO RUN AWAY
ALL YOU DO IS TO LET IT PASS THROUGH
EVERY ONE SOMETIMES HAS A BAD DAY
THAN IT HITS YOU AND YOU KNOW IT IS TRUE
THE SKY IS BLUE…

REPRISE

Sailing Back To You

Written By: Tom Dekleyn

SAILING ON THE OCEAN
THE WATER IS DEEP AND BLUE

CARRIED BY THE MOTION
OF THE NEED TO BE WITH YOU

A THOUSAND TIMES IT PLAYED IN MY HEAD
ALL THE THINGS I’VE SAID
AND I WAS WRONG

I THINK ABOUT THE YEARS WE SPENT
ALL THE PLACES WE WENT
AND NOW YOU’RE GONE

YOUR PICTURE IS A REFLECTION
AS THE SUNSHINE HITS THE SEA

I MISS YOUR LOVE AND AFFECTION
I MISS YOU HERE WITH ME

A THOUSAND TIMES IT PLAYED IN MY HEAD
ALL THE THINGS I’VE SAID
AND I WAS WRONG
I THINK ABOUT THE YEARS WE SPENT
ALL THE PLACES WE WENT
AND NOW YOU’RE GONE

I’M SEARCHING FOR NEW LAND
I’VE SAILED THE SEAS OF MY HEART
BUT NOW I UNDERSTAND
ALL I WANT IS COMING BACK TO YOU
ALL I’LL DO IS SAILING BACK TO YOU
