about

I am an independent recording artist (no record label & self-financed). These acoustic demo songs are part of an ongoing collection which debut regularly on The Blinding Heights Podcast.

Volume One contains songs written and recorded from 2009 through 2011.

These demo songs were written with the plan to draw upon them when selecting material for my next full-band studio album.

Thank you for your support! Rock on, WB

Track Name: Holy Love (demo)
This fuse we share is burning
Maybe I am finally learning
What it takes to heal a heart
Wishin' that you could show me right from the start

I got a holy love
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love

I cut my soul, lay it on the line
Drink me up 'til the well run dry
I lie here with you on this new moon night
Your smile so crooked and the moves you use so right

I got a holy love
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love

I promised you rainbows
Oh no, all I brought was the rain
I'm flirting with madness
But all I can feel is the goddamn pain

I got a holy love
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
Hold on now baby
Hold on now darling
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
Track Name: Trace Your Tattoo (demo)
Trace Your Tattoo

I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me trace your tattoo
Come on

Don’t piss your days away
You know I got that touch you crave
What is there left to lose
And don’t fake what you never really had
I know you got attitude back
That ink you wear is true

I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo
Skin on skin, trace your tattoo

Across your side, along your spine
The inside curve of your thigh
I could

So don’t fake what you never really had
I know you got attitude back
That ink you wear is true
I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo
Don’t piss your days away
You know I got that touch you crave
What is there left to lose
Left to lose now baby

I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo

Skin on skin, trace your tattoo
Track Name: Hell Over Heaven (demo)
Love lost, a broken cross
Watch pirate flags unfurl
You break me, I break you
This game we play it's how we choose
To drive this wicked world

Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could gain
Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave

You break me, I break you
Games of chance we will lose
A runway, a highway
Anyway we're here to stay
Can't deny being born for you

Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could gain
Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave

A runway, a highway
Anyway I'm next to you girl
Love lost, broken cross
Together all alone we watch
Pirate flags unfurl

Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could gain
Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave
Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could gain
Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave

For the harlot I crave
Track Name: Bleeding At Your Backdoor Tonight (demo)
Bleeding At Your Backdoor Tonight

Make believe that I could live without ya
Every treasure I went searching for was gone
Take me home 'cause I'm nothing but a heartbreak
I'm just a fool whose strength is anything but strong

I am bleeding at your backdoor tonight
I'm the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet
Take me into the light
A fairytale heart, scarred
Outlaw to play the part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight

Make believe you can't go on without me
Through your doorway forget the pictures that grace your wall
I know I shoulda known, but I left ya anyway
Too many stars in the sky and I had to ride them all

I am bleeding at your backdoor tonight
I'm the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet
Take me into the light
Your fairytale heart, scarred
Outlaw to play the part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight

How many times, Lord how many times
Have I made my getaway yeah 'round your backdoor come sunrise

I could make believe it's hard to see in your eyes
I'm neither saint nor sinner now just another lover
From a life long gone by
If you'd wish me well that would be right and kind
But maybe this dream is the only thing real that I could ever get right

Now, I'm bleeding at your backdoor tonight
I'm the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet
Take me into the light
A fairytale heart, scarred
Outlaw to play the part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight
This gunslinger has played his part
Bleeding at your backdoor tonight
Make believe
Track Name: Pretty Garden (demo)
Your pretty garden, right next door
Your pretty garden, so sweet the summer storm
Flowers and cherries drip above in the trees
Your pretty garden call to me

Your pretty garden, where we play
Your pretty garden, our sanctuary
Rock the rhythm, entertainment tonight
Your pretty garden, treat me right
Down down down

Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down

Your pretty garden, away we will steal
So electric and real
Can't fight the vixen she's the dreamer I gotta know
Your pretty garden, let it grow
Down down down

Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down

Through holes in heaven... She call down

Your pretty garden
Track Name: Alexandra Falling (demo)
Cathedral spire rising higher
Pretty light from the city shining bright
No need to fear, these old ghosts round here
Just Alexandra falling tonight

Lexi's going down,
Lexi's going down alright
Lexi's going down,
Lexi's going down

Bravery to spare, the wind in her hair
Let the truth become you at these blinding heights
No need to fear, brand new ghosts found here
Just Alexandra falling tonight

CHORUS

It's harder than heaven, don't you know
The farther you get the harder it goes
It's harder than heaven
You will will learn to know

CHORUS
Track Name: Closer (demo)
Closer

Closer, than we ever could before
Closer, how could I want more
Closer, I hear that melody that I seek
Sweet lyric you will speak
Grab my soul to keep

My hand next to your heart
Your heart always on my mind
My mind cannot not think about you
Cross your heart I creep
Grab your soul to keep

Don't let me go, na na now
Don't let me go, now my baby
Don't let me go, na na now
My baby
Track Name: Christine, Dangerously Close (demo)
I've been watching you baby
From any angle that I can
Please help me to untie these hands
So you're saying that you want me
But you honor your wedding band
All I'm asking is try to understand
Christine, now we are

Dangerously close
Desire, desire will not lead you home
Christine, Christine now we are
Dangerously close
The fire, the fire of hell I have known
Christine, Christine

Seventh year to the day and the old times will remain true
I will surrender only to you
The moonlight ain't no stranger
Just another midnight rendezvous
What will you sacrifice to let me through
Christine, now we are

Dangerously close
Desire, desire will not lead you home
Christine, Christine now we are
Dangerously close
The fire, the fire of hell I have known
Christine, Christine

We are dangerously close
Desire, desire will not lead you home
Christine

Hand in hand, hand in hand
Christine
Hand in hand, hand in hand
Christine
Hand in hand, hand in hand
Christine
Hand in hand, you'll be queen, I'll be king
Of this one life stand
Track Name: Crazy Diamond (demo)
I saw you at the exact moment you saw me
Ain't that the way it always works in the movies
Love at first sight, meant to be
You held me
Pulling closer girl, I held you
Strangers for less than a moment
The miracle drug come true

You're my crazy diamond, whoa
Yeah, it takes one to know
In the heat of this disco inferno
We dance so slow
If you'd leave me tonight, I'd be
Only half of the whole
You're my crazy diamond
Oh yeah, and it takes one to know

Crazy some will say
For you and I to meet and fall in love this way
But there ain't no doubt
And there ain't no lie
When I look into your eye
I saw you at the exact moment you see me
Ain't that the way it always works in the movies
Love at first sight, meant to be

You're my crazy diamond, whoa
Yeah, it takes one to know
In the heat of this disco inferno
We dance so slow
If you'd leave me tonight, I'd be
Only half of the whole
You are my crazy diamond
Just don't leave me tonight
Oh yeah, just half of the whole
In the heat of this disco inferno
We dance slow
We dance slow
We dance slow
You whisper, it takes one to know
Track Name: Firing Squad (demo)
Such a high road woman you're living
I felt the hunger, the need to feed
With you so far above me
I stole some fruit from the low hanging tree
This apartment that we keep
Ain't nothing but a battleground
Tonight how can I expect to sleep
My heart is shattered by a bulletround

Infidels, sinners and mystics
The company I like to keep
It's all over, over
Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me

You kept a close watch over me
You are fueled by vain and pride
But there's nothing I'd rather do
Than turn the truth back into the lie
This apartment that we keep
Ain't nothing but a battleground
Tonight how can I expect to sleep
My heart is shattered by a bulletround

Infidels, sinners and mystics
The company I like to keep
It's all over, over
Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me
Visionaries, rebels and misfits
The kinda guys I'd like to believe
But it's over, all over
Your firing squad is loaded and it's ready, waiting on me

I line up, you lie down
And you grin, and I frown
I feel the silence all around
Hear a pin drop, deadly sound
Beads of sweat on my brow
The firing squad is ready to shot me down

Infidels, sinners and mystics
The company I like to keep
It's all over, over
Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me
Visionaries, rebels and misfits
Kinda guys I'd like to lead
But it's over, all over
Your firing squad is loaded and it's ready, waiting on me
Vigilantes, vagabonds, villains
The company I keep
It's all over, over
Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me
Shoot me down
Track Name: Madison Ave. (demo)
There’s a place, there’s a child
Watching two lovers walk down The Aisle
Wondering if true love is true
Baby, it's always been about me and you
Forget walking down Madison Ave.

In the city, people say
You can't beat living the Madison way
Bright lights and fashion to kill the blues
Baby, it's always been about me and you
Forget walking down Madison Avenue
No need to tell me what a diamond can prove
So long Madison Ave.

HARMONICA

Upon a time, long ago
Your daddy bought his girl the world, we both know
Born and raised from a silver spoon
Baby, it's always been about me and you
Forget walking down Madison Ave.

There's a silence, peace of mind
Most locals don’t see it and just keep walkin' by
It’s something you feel through and through
Baby, it's always been about me and you
Forget walking down Madison Ave.

There’s a place, there’s a child
Watching two lovers walk down The Aisle
Wondering if true love is true
Baby, it's always been about me and you
Forget walking down on Madison Ave.
No need to tell me what a diamond can prove
So long, Madison Ave.
Baby, it's always been about me and you
Forget walking down Madison Ave.
Track Name: Unwritten Number (demo)
Tell me Brother, what you gonna do
When the world that you seek turns on you
Are you solid, can you make a stand
Or are you just a make believe rocketman

Tell me Brother, oh don't ya know
Just how deep that the rabbit hole can go
Straight to the bottom, right from the top
The traveler unknown cannot stop

Lose the past, begin again
You are the end, you are the end
Forget the future, Brother Amen
You are the end, you are the end

Whisper Brother, the spells you speak
Will twist, turn and into your heart will creep
You will continue to get what you got
If you continue to think what you have always thought

CHORUS
Track Name: Feel Like A Million (demo)
Take a dance, feel like a million
Take a chance, feel like a million too
I was hoping that you'd come through for me

Everyday, all through my life
In every way, through every inch of this strife
I was hoping that you'd come through for me

Maybe I'm wrong, baby maybe I'm right
But girl I'm just workin' it right here tonight
I don't know what you been told
But I know that you're my woman or at least I've been sold

Take a dance, feel like a million
Take a chance, feel like a million too
I was hoping that you'd come through for me

Maybe I'm wrong, baby maybe I'm right
But girl I'm just workin' it right here tonight
I don't know what you been told
But I know that you're my woman or at least I've been sold

Take a dance, feel like a million
Take a chance, feel like a million too
I was hoping that you'd come through for me
I'm so happy that you're here with me
Some romance would mean the world to me
