 Love U More

You talk about me
Like I'm not in the room
You say I have no feelings
No feelings for you
This is a shock to me boy
I feel like I'm overflowing
The only way I could love u more
Is If you were me boy
You made me believe It was all about me
Till I got caught up And strung out, it's like a drug
Oh, accountability It shouldn't be a shock to you boy
You should have seen it coming
"You should have seen him"
Hit you like a shot gun Eyes open toward the sun I think you have finally won
This game that you've been playing No one else has been playing
Looks like you're the only one
The only way I could love you more Is If you were me boy

We We
wontbelying wontbelying wontbelying to me
I can see the sound of flesh as you are breathing A temporary calm our love it has been fleeting Floating on Meantime, we are not clandestine We've been lying to We

And the thing that I miss most about you You always had the courage to rewrite the rules
Every sunset and afternoon
Of you going down on me, me going down on you
We were lying to We

If you want to call me up
And take a break from your new lover
I know you're always at your best when, working undercover
Who need feelings when we have each other 'cause this time baby, oh no....
You wont be lying to me

wontbelying wontbelying wontbelying to me
I think that I found the man who has been waiting
a temporary calm for permanent jading
I can't un-love you!
I can not un-learn these truths

I can see the sound of flesh as you are breathing
A temporary calm our love it has been fleeting
Floating on Meantime, we are not clandestine
We've been lying to We

 And the thing that I miss most about you
You always had the courage to rewrite the rules
Every sunset and afternoon
Of you going down on me, me going down on you
We were lying to We
If you want to call me up And take a break from your new lover
I know you're always at your best when, working undercover
Who need feelings when we have each other 'cause this time baby, oh no....
You wont be lying to me
 wontbelying wontbelying wontbelying to me

New Single!! Here is the video for Auguste Clown....

Here is my new song and video for "Auguste Clown"... The single will be available for download on April 1st, 2018. There will be an album in the fall! Auguste Clown, is my first release from this project!!! The genre will be Disco Folk, my ode to 90's Vocal House music....
Aguste Clown
I heard a rumor that your back in town
you've been all over the place
I got married and settled down
but I still miss your face
I couldn't be the one to hold you down
you were my only chance to escape
you made a really Auguste Clown
with your sad sad face
I'm still trying to forget you
after all these years
but my hear just will not let you
.....go......
and I
want to see you
want hear you
want to touch you
'cause my heart
wants to see
wants to feel you
wants to touch you
and my lips
want to taste you
want to speak you
need to kiss you
'cause my heart
wants to see you
wants to feel you
wants to touch you
I thought I saw you yesterday
outside a bar across town
these feelings I can't explain away
now look whose the Auguste Clown
I just call you and shut it down
maybe we'll meet some place
I need your love and I need it now
I'm in a sad sad state

NEW BEGINNINGS

I have had a couple of months to reflect on my album that is due for release in a couple of months.  I know over the past year, I have had the working title "Sentimentality" which has finally been scratched.   The new title of the album is entitled "Boundaries".  As we get closer to the release, I will be discussing the "WHY'S" behind these decisions.   I plan on playing a few shows this year as well, however, they will be acoustic sets with some creative stage settings.   If anyone is looking to collaborate and to create a show, I am definitely open to experimentation....  For videos and music stuff you can join my music group at Charly Ray Music  or just send me a request or message an my facebook page , accessible on the right panel of this page.  Stay tuned for some amazing things this year!!!!

ROOFTOPS

I originally intended for Rooftops to live out its life as a poem. As time passed, whenever I would read it, I found myself singing it. The organic meter gave birth to an organic melody, which was yearning to be something greater than a poem. Not to understate the flow and beauty of metered poetry, but music adds another dimension, poetry in motion, I suppose. The song is about accepting love into your life and taking accountability for self- humiliation, and wanting to see a shift in bad behaviors. In order to accept love, it's important to relate to it, no matter in what form it appears. It is also important to understand that life is full of contradictions, be them owned by ourselves and thrown out onto others, or owned by others and thrown out onto ourselves. When I first met Glenn, I had just gone through a horrible detox, from all of the poison I had been putting into my body for the previous ten years.

For sure, I was not in a place to have a relationship, and I was not looking. We met casually, and were instantly inseparable. He had the perfect life, the perfect family, and not a worry in the world. We were very different people. Never had I been so confused! I knew I wanted to be with him, but I had already made promises to myself to take better care of “me,” and not worry about anything or anyone else. I had already lost the majority of my friendships; I was the only one of my posse that decided to get clean. The thought of getting close to someone, and being vulnerable, not to mention, taking a gamble on losing something else, was unbearable. This poem became my promise to myself, to let go and be vulnerable, take chances, and tell my story. The truth will set you free, and it did. Needless to say, I made the right decision in terms of being vulnerable. We have been together for over 11 years, and we are very happy. Life is all about taking chances. When you stop taking chances, you stop living. Beating yourself up for past mistakes will only lead to future disasters.

Note to self: Thank you!

Rooftops

There's a stairway to my attic
But it's really hard to get to
And if you manage to climb my stairs Be careful of the rafters,
They can really cut deep, they can really cut deep

There's a corner where the ceiling's really high In that corner, you will find me even higher
I'll be naked I'll be laughing
I'll be angry from the tire
From crawling through my rooftops
Searching for desire
But at the same time I love you
But I'm a little more than tired
From crawling through my rooftops
Searching for desire

Like you I have found nothing
But a lifeless form of nothing
Standing in a corner
Of a place that nearly killed me

I guess I'll say I'm sorry
For not telling you before
It’s so good for my body
Some things need restore

I'm sure someday you'll join me
In a corner of your own
And maybe then, you'll surely see
Why were all alone

A simple hesitation before you climb any higher
In these lines the contradictions In the search for desire

Sentimentality OUT NOW!
