Special thanks

Mom & Dad – This is the record you've been waiting for. I hope you love it.

The Klunks, The Waltons, & The Woodwards – Thank you for your love, generosity, and support. We couldn't have done it without you!

Christian Stranne, Nick Campbell, & Logan Shrewsbery – I will forever be grateful for your help in getting this project off the ground.

Chris Sampson, Will Hollis, Richard Smith, Melissa Manchester, & Derik Nelson – All of your encouragement, guidance, and input have been invaluable into the production and release of this record.

Matias Mora – Your presence is always a source of joy.

Timo Yates – Thanks for never failing to go the extra mile.

The Band – I consider it an honor that you have chosen to share your extraordinary talents with me. Thank you for your love and friendship.

Luke Walton – I always think of you as my big brother. You bring out the best in me as a musician, an artist, and a human being.

Finally, I would like to dedicate this record to my best friend Brett Fromson. Brett, you are the most incredible friend a guy could ever have.

Thank you all for taking the time to read my acknowledgments of all the people who mean the world to me. But most importantly, thank you for believing in me. The making of this disc has been the experience of a lifetime.

There's one more thing. I want to share with you what means the most to us: music education. We hope that you support music education in your local community and for children everywhere. The Grammy Foundation in particular does a great job at this. They are the charity we support. If not for their programs, I would not be enjoying a career in music.

Track Name: Just a Mile Away
Just a Mile Away
Music and Lyrics by Barry Harris

Greeted by the state welcome sign
Hope I made it just in time
On the road there's a view to fill
At the top of an endless hill
You're waitin
Waitin for me

Turn down the AC, get fired up
Turbo engine, it's wired up
Turn the dial, turn the radio loud
I'm gettin' close, I bet you hear me now
Singing
Singing to you

Chorus:
I'm just a mile away from you
Cause I've been lookin for something new
Headlight's lighting up paradise
There's no more work and sacrifice
I'm just a mile away

I'm drivin on burnin' wheels
Oh how I'm dyin' to feel
and make believe I'm goin' faster
This long drive will be my last
Forever
Forever

Repeat Chorus

I've been hangin on for far too long
I'll take the exit, nothing else can keep up separate Here I am, just a mile away

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: California Princess
California Princess
Music and Lyrics by Barry Harris

I fell in love with a California princess
I caught a glimpse, I froze her in an instance
That Escalade surely wasn't cheap
I've got less than she'd make in a week

I asked the people but she goes by only one name
It made it hard to find her, oh, what a shame
Those blinding shades are a love disguise
They keep me from staring in her eyes

Chorus:
I'm holding out forever more
I know it's just a question of when
When she's gonna give it away
When she's gonna give it away
Away, Away

She won't remember but I'll take the chance that she might
I'm just a stranger, out of mind, out of sight
I wrote a letter but she never wrote back
She thought it's best if she never looked back

Repeat chorus
Track Name: Game of Spades
Game of Spades
Music and Lyrics by Barry Harris

I love the way when you talk to me
I get that hint of your jealousy
It's so good, so good to know,
That you've already seen my queen of spades

I love the way when you seal your lips
It tells me all of how it's come to this
It's so hard, so hard to tell
That it's time to show your king of spades

If only love was the first thing then we'd get it right
If just our hearts were only hurting then we'd never cry

Don't you love it when you come on home
And you find that I was never alone
I know, I know what you think
Guess it's time to quit this game of spades

We always hoped things would work out if we gave our best
But now we know that the love we had was like the rest

Don't you love it when you start to say
It'll be alright, but it's more the same
When in the world are we going to learn
No one wins at this game of spades
Track Name: I'll Wait for You (Springtime)
I'll Wait For You (Springtime)
Music and Lyrics by Barry Harris

Springtime begins with sunshine
While I'm waiting, I'm slowly fading
In my heart I keep inside
A shadow of a love that's been here
Meantime, I'll wait for you

Fallen leaves and ever-growing trees,
Hideaway abandoned highways
Where am I on this old road?
No one's been here for many years
I'll stand here and wait for you

I've never known much better,
As far as I remember
You know who I try to be,
And what I fail to see
It times like these I've come to know
It's not fair to be alone

Everyday I do it my way
The well is frozen, my mind is closin
I search for truth but it's not here
I'm not a man to face my fears
I'll stand here and I'll wait for you

It's what I do I do to myself
I share with no one else
You don't know I'm dyin' inside
Someday, I'll feel alive

Fear and sorrow begins tomorrow
Darkened night skies keep me from flyin high
I keep on wishin' for something more
All I know is I have to wait
In time, I'll wait for you
Meanwhile, I'll wait for you
Track Name: You Know Me Too Well
You Know Me Too Well
Music and Lyrics by Barry Harris

Come home and I close the curtain
But you know what's behind for certain
I go down and I lock the back door
You'll never get what you asked for

Everywhere you used to be, you're always there
Living in my shadow
You live my mind, you live in my life and
Baby I know that you know me too well

Chorus:
I know you know where I've been
I know you know where I'm goin' now
When I think of you again
You're gettin' your way anyhow
I've got a feeling that you only know me too well

Doesn't matter how much I love you
The heart of the matter is that I don't trust you
It's seldom if I figure it all out
I'll never know what you're all about

Everywhere you used to be, you're always there
Living in my shadow
You live my mind, you live in my life and
Baby I know that you know me too well

Repeat chorus

I've seen you before when you're poundin' my door
Baby I've got a feeling that you know me too well

Repeat chorus
