about

In November 2016 I was laid off from my job. It was a challenging time that left me reeling and in an odd place. On the one hand I knew that God was in it, that it was part of his plan. On the other hand, I was going "what the heck happened to me?" For the three months I was unemployed I lived in that tension.

These songs are the result of all that time off.

The name comes from the idea that a layover on a flight is this weird place where you are technically traveling, but you aren't actively moving forward to your destination.

This season was a layover, I knew that God had something great for me and I was technically traveling towards it, but I wasn't making forward progress.

I hope you enjoy this album!

Track Name: The King is Here
I don't want to bring you anything
That costs me nothing
You and you alone I will worship
And only to you, will I sing

I'll life my hands
And quiet the noise
And center my life at the sound of your voice
For you are here
The King is here

You have taken our broken lives
Made us new
Sanctified in your sight
Resurrected these dead bones
filled anew
You brought us back to life
Track Name: The Redwoods
Come away with me to the redwoods
We can drive up the coast this time
Let's get lost up in the redwoods
See what adventure we can find

We can build our house in the tree branches
Let's go we'll run where there are no fences
We can sleep, we can dream where our breath freezes
Up where the sky and ground embraces

Come away with me to the redwoods
We can drive up the coast this time
Let's get lost up in the redwoods
See what adventure we can find

We can look at the stars up from from our perches
And sing, sing to God, we'll lift our praises
Till the night, goes down, and the sun rises
And all you can hear will be our voices

Come away with me to the redwoods
We can drive up the coast this time
Let's get lost up in the redwoods
See what adventure we can find

We can build our house in the tree branches
Let's go we'll run where there are no fences
We can sleep, we can dream where our breath freezes
Up where the sky and ground embraces

Track Name: Can't Stop Now
You got knocked down
So What? Get up!
Breathe in, breathe out
You don't give up
Step up to the plate
It's now your cue
The only way out now is through

I can't go back
I'm to far down this road
If I stop, I will drown
Track Name: Sting
I know, I know I know
You're better
I know, I know I know
You're better
I know you've found peace in the arms
Of your Savior

But it doesn't take the sting
Out of missing you

I know, I know I know
You're better
I know, I know I know
You're better
I know you've found peace in the arms
Of your Savior

We're waiting, waiting, waiting
Till we see you again
We're waiting, waiting, waiting
Till we see you again

And it helps take the sting
Out of missing you

I know, I know I know
You're better
I know, I know I know
You're better
I know you've found peace in the arms
Of your Savior

I know, I'll see you again

And that,
Takes the sting
Out of missing you
Track Name: The Layover
I was settling in
The voice on the intercom said
Seats up, tray tables in
It's time to de-board the plane

I picked up my things
Turned and said my goodbyes
And got hit with
Some ice cold wind
Just as I walked by

I know I'm on my way
But I'm not moving forward
I'm stuck in the airport
Wondering when will my plane arrive

It's a layover in Denver
Track Name: You're In It
This hit me like a Mack truck
Now I'm falling down from the place I was struck
Landed in muck and now my feat are stuck
After all these years I'm out of luck

Oh God I know you're in it
Oh God I know you're in it
But it's hard to see the path in front of me
When my eyes are clouded in tears

On a scale of one to awful
This was awfully close
To knocking me down for the count
A fatal dose
Struggling fighting, living in my bed clothes
Wonderful author I need you close

Oh God I know you're in it
Oh God I know you're in it
But it's hard to see the path in front of me
When my eyes are clouded in tears

I found myself in the valley of shadow
Don't know what's up or where to go
You're there whispering softly "Son it's time to go"
"Pick up your feet I'll show them where to roam"

Oh God I know you're in it
Oh God I know you're in it
But it's hard to see the path in front of me
When my eyes are clouded in tears
Track Name: Roots Run Deep
My mama said son, be a blessing not a cursing
To those you serve, and those who are hurting
You will go far, you can reach for the stars
Don't forget who you are, and who. you come from

Your Roots Run Deep
Your Roots Run Deep

My father said son, remember what I taught you
These lessons I've shown you, they are not new
Passed down through, revived in you anew
Don't forget who you are, or who you come from

Your Roots Run Deep
Your Roots Run Deep

I'm telling you child, unborn son or daughter
All of the cash in the world I'd barter
So you can go far, you can reach for the stars
Don't forget who you are, and who you come from

Your Roots Run Deep
Your Roots Run Deep
Track Name: In the Deep
Hat in my hand
Watch my heart bleed down my sleeve
Taking chances
Quest to find that inner peace

Breaking my feet
Run from a mind that torments me
Lost my way
Wading out here in the deep

No reflections
Hallow eyes murder me
What have I done
Hands run crimson like the sea

Over my head
Water clawing into me
Asphyxiate
I guess I'm drowning in the deep
Track Name: Awaken Me
Be quiet my soul, lay me down tonight
Rest in your strength, and abide in your love
Died for my sins Lord, you bled for my pride
Rest in your strength, and abide in your love

Strength when I am weary
Peace when I am worried
Master provider
My all in all

You're alive, you're alive
You're alive in me
God you reign, God you reign
God you reign in me
Take this heart make it new
And make me whole again
Take these eyes make them see
Awaken me again

I will draw near to you, as you draw to me
Wrap me in your love and saturate my heart
Silence my mind Lord, remake all my doubts
Wrap me in your love and saturate my heart

Strength when I am weary
Peace when I am worried
Master provider
My all in all

You're alive, you're alive
You're alive in me
God you reign, God you reign
God you reign in me
Take this heart make it new
And make me whole again
Take these eyes make them see
Awaken me again
