about

Hi Friends. Thank you for the support and thanks for listening. I felt like these four songs shared a candid simplicity and belonged together on Strum Strum. Thank you to everyone who helped make this, my family and friends who continue to encourage and support me, and all the amazing friends I meet along the way. There are too many of you to mention here. Thanks for listening. Luke

Track Name: Keep Rolling On
I remember thinking about all the things that I would do
It's funny how quickly that boy became you
Sitting here drinking away all the things that I'd have done
While the moments slip away and another one comes

And the years keep rolling on keep rolling on like a beating drum
They dont blink an eye or go back for anyone
and the weirdest part of growing old is still feeling so young
While the years keep rolling on keep rolling on keep rolling on

I rememeber understanding I don't understand it all
But knowing its all going somewhere and I'm part of that force
These days my heart say you dont know nothing at all
while the moments fall away and another one falls

And the years keep rolling on keep rolling on like a beating drum
They dont blink an eye or slow down for anyone
and the weirdest part of growing old is still feeling so young
While the years keep rolling on keep rolling on keep rolling on
Track Name: Oh Christina
Oh Christina,
My heart is in it,
is yours
I can't tell anymore

You shut all the windows you shut all the doors
and the cracks in the ceiling they're mine and they're yours
and the the water is are rising there's no where to hide
like a lighthouse but when did we shut off the lights
the wheels are still spinning the wood is still warm
Theres a hole in the floor that we never saw

Oh Christina, my heart is in it
is yours, I can't tell anymore
Oh Christina, are we beginning to fall
I can't tell anymore

These black in white halls and all of these walls
and the shadows they're throwing remind me of yours
as you're tiptoeing in and out of my heart
Like you know it but you just don't know where to start
and the wheels are still spinning the wood is still warm
but these holes in the floor just wont hold us no more

Oh Christina, my heart is in it
is yours, I can't tell anymore
Oh Christina, are we beginning to fall
I can never be sure
I can't tell anymore
Track Name: The Climb, the Fall
Miley, I can understand why
you'd wanna be somebody else for awhile
you've been so many people for so many years
All things ruin, crack and mold
new things grow then we call them old
But we're all looking for a lie that we can share

Did you feel the limelight
Slipping away from your hold
Did you feel the darkness sinking into your soul
Glowing isn't easy and nobody wants
To feel forgotten, to be forgot

Amy died running through the night
Trying to hide from the quiet inside
But you never can, you never will, it's yours
Takes it's toll all that rock n roll
It takes another little piece of your heart and soul
But we're all climb but not the fall

Did you feel the limelight
Slipping away from your hold
Did you feel the darkness sinking into your soul
Glowing isn't easy and nobody wants
To feel forgotten, to be forgot

Can you see the names
in the flickering lights they're gonna fade
Cos' we are all the same
With the voices in our heads lingering
We just want to be
Someone somebody else wants to be
Did you believe Hollywood was gonna set you free

Did you feel the limelight
Slipping away from your hold
Did you feel the darkness sinking down into your soul
Glowing isn't easy and nobody wants
To feel forgotten, to be forgot
Track Name: Like a River to the Sea
All the years
Roll together
Like the beat of a drum
Like the beating drum

All the waters
Run together
Like the rain falling free
Like the river to the sea

And we run, like a river to sea

All the years
Fold together
Like the turning of a page
Like a slow turning page

Hold onto nothing
But for your love
It will come undone
It's all coming undone

And we run, like a river to sea
Yeah we run like a river to sea
Where my heart will be free
