about

Written in one sitting in a car in Canada in 2013 on a ukulele. This was the day God told me something so precious I never uttered it until almost three years later.

Recorded and produced by me between October 2014 and May 2016 in Nashville, TN

lyrics

Thank you Dad

I woke up one morning and wanted to die, somehow I am still alive. I woke up for a decade and wanted to die, somehow I am still alive. Thank you Dad for not giving in when I begged you for death. Because of you the kingdom has another Veteran. Every time I saw a pretty girl, I put a gun in my mouth. If only I could comprehend the person that I'd be now. Thank you Dad for ignoring me when I begged you for death. Because of you, I know what's true: ”Daddy always knows best!” Yeah, he does know best! Yeah, he does know best! Now I have been an idiot for at least 11 years, but even I can comprehend the reason why we're all here. ;-0 I wanted to LIVE for all my life, and then YOU showed me how. Thank you Dad for all the things I want that YOU won't allow.
