David Bernosky I caught Nick on a pre-Holiday stream and really enjoyed his original songs. Glad to add to my music collection. Looking forward to more from him.

Track Name: Your Heart
Oh well you sit and wait with empty bags
Oh well you pray and you whisper maybe some day
Oh as the years pass you by you settle in
To the work and the worries of the changing seasons
But your heart, it don't feel right.
Oh now your soul well it's frozen with winter winds
And oh now you try to move forward but your feet wont give
And oh as the years pass you by you forget your dreams
For the work and the worries of everyday things
But your heart, it don't feel right
At the bottom of your heart you know
That you can't find your way without your soul
Yea at the bottom of your heart you know
That you can't find your way without your soul
Oh well you sit and wait, you wait
Oh well you say with conviction, maybe some day
Oh as the fear and the lies they settle in
To the work and the worries of everyday things
To the work and the worries of the changing seasons
To the work and the worries of everything.
Track Name: Sun Burns On
Well I want it
But I'm running away from it
I'm keeping my distance
I'm turning my back
Because I've had it
And it lives in my memories
Of holding you tenderly
My lips on your neck
Now it's gone, gone gone
But the sun it burns on
Midwest winters
We fought them together
And talked of adventures
We drew up our plans
For the summer
When we'd swim in the river
And laugh at the winter
Me holding your hand
Now it's gone, gone, gone
But the sun it burns on.
Track Name: The Lives We Lead
Pigeons drop from rooftops
The flock catches my eye
I wish that I could fly
I wish that I could fly, away
Where the fuck did the sun go
And who the hell invited the snow
Where the fuck did my love go, I know.
I know it weighs on your soul
And it weighs down your shoulders
We getting older, time growing shorter
You packed your patience, swallowed your angst and
You see those dreams damn they're close you can taste it.
Cloudy day in California
Coffee staining my tongue
I wish that I could run
I wish that I could run, home
I'm missing my Mississippi
I'm missing dying Maple leaves
I packed my bags and left for the city
Yea I went chasing my dreams, well I know.
I know it weighs on your soul
And it weighs down your shoulders
We getting older, time getting shorter
You packed your patience, swallowed your angst and
You see those dreams damn they're close you can taste it.
Cuz times like these, baby, damn they're hard
The lives we lead, darlin', I know, I know I know.
Track Name: Keep Your Head
Girl you gotta keep your head up
When you hurt, when you're sitting in the shadows of your dreams
Girl you gotta keep your head up
When your world aint spinning on the axis that you please
But I can see the daylight breaking
I can see the colors in the sky
I can see the daylight breaking
On the ocean side
And I gotta keep my head up
Cuz I know that our road is splitting at our feet
And I gotta keep my head up
Cuz I've seen this goddamn distance, split our seams
But I can see the daylight breaking
I can see the colors in the sky
I can see the daylight breaking
On the ocean side
If you fall down, I am here now, If you call out, I am here now.
Track Name: Up Late, Dreaming
My heart, beating, up late dreaming
Drinking this gin, your skin on my skin
Your legs, they're shakin, rain taps my ceiling
Head back, eyes closed, you come so close, to me.
Fingers, dig in, your hips, your skin
Breathing your sins, my lips are learnin'
Your soul it's shaking, rain taps my ceiling
Head back, eyes closed, you come so close, to me.
This late night rain, it's falling softly
Our lips exchange, our souls briefly
