Collaborated with author Ann Aguirre on this song. She wrote the lyrics as part of her new book Queen of Bright & Shiny Things. I wrote and recorded the music.


Rock bottom, left for dead,
Furies screaming in my head--
I was off the rails, way off track
Somehow you brought me back.

You’re the one who makes me whole
When I’m broken in my soul
The queen of bright and shiny things,
Not designer clothes or diamond rings.

So you’re the calm and I’m the storm;
I’d sell my soul to keep you warm.
You’re the angel in my bed;
You’re the words I never said.

Princess, let me fight for you
I’ll go to war if you want me to
But I’d rather take you home tonight
Hold you close and treat you right

Other men could give you more
But none of them could love you more
They can keep the world if I’ve got you
I’m forever yours, forever true.
