The sessions are back! New tunes, covers, etc., etc., from a brand new “studio.” It happens to be my office :). This is a new tune I wrote about missing a certain someone…who might be on a certain TV show…that might be called The Biggest Loser ;).
New song this week written with one of my favorite people in the world, Anje Dowler, and Katie Dean. It’s got a “James Taylor Moment” in the middle where the key goes up and I have to move the capo in a split second. Watch for it :).

Fight In Me
Ben Ward, Anje Dowler, Katie Dean
You’re the cigarette I’m not smoking
You’re the whiskey I’m not pouring
Anymore….Why can’t I close the door
You’re the hit I’m not taking
You’re the judgment I’m not making
It’s not over yet…Too hard to forget
I’ve got more needs
Than the comfort you bring
You hold my hand
But you’re not holding on to me
I’ve got some doubts
But I’m feeling my way out
In the end I believe
There’s still a fight in me
Maybe I fall too quickly
Maybe I’m my own worst enemy
It’s so easy…You never leave me
I’ll overcome where I’ve come from
Undo the damage I’ve done
A little change of pace this week. I’ve played you eight new original songs in-a-row so I thought it would be fun to do a cover. This is the first Garth Brooks song I learned to play. It’s very James Taylorish so it fit me just right. It was written by Garth and Victoria Shaw from the album Fresh Horses.
She’s Every Woman

This week I’ve got a new song that I wrote a couple years ago with my friend Chris Roberts. Chris is in the band One Flew South and is an all-around great guy. I’m actually going into withdrawl beacuse we haven’t written together in so long :).
Olivia and I love to go to estate sales, but they can be sad sometimes. This inspired us to write about “Pictures hanging on the wall.”
