Another New Song – Don’t Want to Run

Here’s another one I wrote with Anje Dowler and a great singer/songwriter I went to Berklee with, Mike Willis.

Staying put. Seeing love through. Walking it out. Hard, but so worth it. Enjoy!!

Don’t Want to Run

I’ve always played the game
Holding back,
not giving all of me
so quick place the blame
A broken man
With an answer for everything

Can’t keep living live in overdrive
Always trying to catch my breath
My soul is tired now
I think I’m losing ground
I can’t help myself

I don’t want to run anymore
I’d rather stay with you and take it slow
With this love I can’t ignore
I’m finally coming undone
I don’t wanna run

A collection of memories
A fading dream
Are all I’ve had to hold
A beaten up photograph
From a moment that
I cannot seem to let go

Our love has been a battleground
Leaving us the casualties
I’ll raise my hand and call a truce
But I just can’t retreat


Am I too late?
Has the moment gone?
Is there a part of me alive in you?
Something I can hold on to?


Finally Free – New Song

Time for a new song! This one I wrote with my dear friend Anje Dowler…bunch of new ones coming up here and on the YouTube channel!

Finally Free
Anje Dowler/Ben Ward

It seemed so permanent
Felt like forever
They all said “learn from it”
It’ll get better
But walking around in chains ain’t good enough you see
So I cut those ties, the one’s that bind
And it almost killed me
But I’m still standing

Finally free

All my reasoning
Seemed so perfect
Subtle seasoning
Far from working
With no one else to blame walking right into that place
Just let it go, nothing left to know
No more excusing
Done with waiting

Finally Free
