Thomas Theo You did it again. You have an amazing chemistry with Mack Damon and it really shows in your work. 'Stars Apart' is excellent from start to finish and I'm glad you decided to include a couple more tracks. And I can't believe you almost didn't release 'Go On'. Mad! Get the album, people, it's worth every penny! Favorite track: Go On.

There's no use jumping ahead you end up right where you are Give as good as you get, everybody in step, all you weapons of war  Come to question in time, maybe you got it all wrong Do you wake up at night in a sweat? Is the lie of not good enough gone? Not good enough. Gone Throw it all away. It all sounds the same  You can make it up again but who do you blame When you leave yourself in play? Still in the game Loathe to decide, you love or you lose ‘Cause every crooked man walks a crooked mile It’s your burden of proof Take a long and hard look at the toll that it takes Do you wake up at night in a sweat? Does the lie not keep you awake? Keep you awake Throw it all away. It all sounds the same  You can make it up again but who do you blame When you leave yourself in play? Still in the game I am open and I am listening Is that your vision coming through? Still unopened, boxed and broken Is that your version of truth? Throw it all away. It all sounds the same  You can make it up again but who do you blame If you always find yourself still in the game? Still in the game

In one breath, the memory of what you said When it was still dark outside, as you kissed my lips goodbye In only so many words, but all that you meant I heard It got me through the day but night is too much to take ‘Cause, I can’t sleep. I can’t sleep I lose my mind without you I need you there on your side of the bed. You know I do That’s why I’m fine staying up all night Writing a song to say it doesn’t take long to start missing you With each heartbeat, a measure of certainty The quiet is not so calm, the house not as much a home Pages of unsung words, how many more to turn Songs on a sleepless night, how many more to write ‘Cause, I can’t sleep. I can’t sleep I lose my mind without you I need you there on your side of the bed. You know I do That’s why I’m fine staying up all night writing a song to say something’s wrong with me, baby I’m saying I’m just not the same. I go crazy waiting I lose my mind without you I need you there on your side of the bed. You know I do That’s why I’m fine staying up all night Writing a song to say it doesn’t take long Writing a song to say it doesn’t take long To start missing you

New shirt, new shoes, new you New habits, values, attitudes and No friends, no recompense get dizzy from the latitude Yeah, they’ll say you’re crazy but you go your own imaginary way It’s you and only you with no one to impersonate and You might disintegrate or, worse, You’ll over compensate But, you can’t go wrong here It’s the roll that you were born to play It’s your great escape No more walking in the rain No more falling way too far You can lie in bed awake Nothing tearing you apart Doesn’t matter who you are ‘Cause you’ll never be the same That’s your great escape Throw out the arguments In retrospect claim ignorance And, no disrespect, but Why pay reverence to dissonance? And don’t break your silence ‘Cause it’s better than an old cliché It’s your great escape No more walking in the rain No more falling way too far You can lie in bed awake Nothing tearing you apart Doesn’t matter who you are ‘Cause you’ll never be the same That’s your great escape Oh, time will tell. It’s just as well Lemons to lemonade Live and learn and crash and burn Run tail between your legs Life is rough but close enough for Horseshoes and for hand grenades It’s your great escape No more walking in the rain No more falling way too far You can lie in bed awake Nothing tearing you apart Doesn’t matter who you are ‘Cause you’ll never be the same That’s your great escape No more walking in the rain No more falling way too far You just lie in bed awake Nothing tearing you apart Doesn’t matter who you are ‘Cause you’ll never be the same That’s your great escape That’s your great escape

I can’t say a word, can’t say a single thing that would be heard And I won’t even try. Nothing like wasted words to suffer by Funny how the truth can set you free Sad that it makes me feel so lonely I don’t have the heart, not for a fight Not to be wrong or right But I wanted to see all of the things We said that we believed Funny how the dreamers always dream Sad if it’s only when we’re sleeping We’ve fallen so far apart there’s only a trace But stars are where they are because they’ve fallen in place We’re all right where we are I won’t turn my back, won’t close the door, won’t blame you anymore I don’t need my pride, don’t need to prove a thing to ease my mind Funny how we cling to what we know Sad because it’s hard to let go We’ve fallen so far apart there’s only a trace But stars are where they are because they’ve fallen in place We’re all right where we are We’re all right, we’re all right Wherever we are, wherever we go Even if heaven only knows I want to be where I can see All the love and the light we hide in between Oh, what keeps the stars, what keeps the stars apart What keeps the stars apart We’ve fallen so far, fallen so far All right where we…all right where we… All right where we are, we are We are

I don't speak in code anymore  Guess I've learned that its best to be perfectly clear At least, I think it might spare me the pain of reliving this year Not that I haven't seen beautiful things, some that I needed to see. I just don't want my life to be one lesson learned on repeat Just like all of these songs that I sing, some I've been singing for years Just like some of the words that you said still ring in my ears You called me honest, said that makes me dangerous If that means you're safer further from the truth Then it's good to be nothing but honest to you All of the days of my life I've been searching for all of the truth I can find.  Guess I finally learned that I find it when I've spoken mine I know I’ve lied like the best of them.  Don't get me wrong. I’m not saying I'm clean  I just can't live the counterfeit life that comes with the deceit  I sort through all of the words that you said, some I just wanted to hear Still I can not bury the ones I believe were sincere You called me honest, said that makes me dangerous If that means you're safer further from the truth Then it's good to be nothing but honest to you In the absence of words Maybe you’re listening to some you haven’t heard Not in the same way before ‘cause everything got in the way The minute you walked through the door it was all leading up to the day You called me honest, said that makes me dangerous If that means you're safer further from the truth Then it's good to be nothing It’s good to be nothing but honest to you

Talk to me and tell me you got another great idea Keep it true to form and everyone will feel Certain and inspired counting on the truth Sell it for a dollar and never see the proof It means nothing if you don’t It means nothing if you don’t It means nothing if you don’t do what you’d love to If you don’t move and you don’t choose Talk to them in tempo. Sing to them in rhyme Wonder that it’s only worthy half the time Scream it into pillows waiting on a call Is this a summer’s day or a painting on the wall It means nothing if you don’t It means nothing if you don’t It means nothing if you don’t do what you’d love to If you don’t move and you don’t choose Is it a sin if, heaven forbid, you speak your mind? Why don’t you live like you want to live or die trying? It means nothing if you don’t It means nothing if you don’t It means nothing if you don’t do what you’d love to If you don’t move and you don’t choose If there’s no proof and there’s no truth It means nothing if you don’t

Baby, come inside. Close the door There’s no on here to fight. Cross the floor Over to my side. I want you so close by Let go of what you know. Nothing’s clear I’ll show you where to go, we’ll disappear I’m done making sense of what’s senseless here All your thoughts divided, leave them undecided The night is underway and sanity can wait Let me you drive you crazy I want to wrap around you now Follow the confusion down Show you all the ways I could never say out loud People take your time but talk is cheap Don’t let them fill your mind up with such things Just leave them where they lie and lie next to me All your thoughts divided leave them undecided the night is underway and sanity can wait Let me you drive you crazy When the world is more than you can take Take all the time you need from me Baby, we’ve only time to lose Fingers running through your hair Reasons scattered everywhere Over and over and under we’ll move All your thoughts divided now Nothing here to figure out The night is underway and sanity can wait Let me you drive you crazy Crazy

It feels so far from where you are you are to where you were back then Kept the dream alive, but you run and you hide ‘til you lose your stride again What might have been, every now and then, makes the road ahead look hard But, who’s to say without losing your way you could have ever come this far Don’t believe the things you want to see could not be given to each Don’t believe that where you want to be is somewhere out of your reach Go on, Go on, don’t you dare look back. That girl is gone Go on, Go on, the road ahead is where you belong now I understand, by your own hand, you’ve been wasting away But there’s no excuse, even lost and confused, just to stay where you stay I see you standing in a corner. I hear you crying through the night I’m here to say this isn’t over. You can go on you’ve earned the right Go on, Go on, don’t you dare look back. That girl is gone Go on, Go on, the road ahead is where you belong How long can you keep stalling the life that lies ahead Just to keep yourself from all this falling down inside your head Don’t believe that where you want to be is somewhere out of your reach Go on, Go on, don’t you dare look back. That girl is gone Go on, Go on, the road ahead is where you belong now It feels so far from where you are you are to where you were back then

It’s a long night Hard to be sitting under starlight Missing the moon because sometimes The moon can just leave you alone It’s a hard loss Like losing your bets in a coin toss If the only thing certain is love lost And everything else is unknown Take me home I don’t want to be here too long Not when the world can go wrong So, wake me when dawn kindly comes It’s a long night Hard to believe that it’s worldwide Taking our turns on the downslide And we still have miles to go Is it bad luck To stop on a dime when you’re moonstruck If a shot in the dark can find true love Then, how the hell would you know Take me home I don’t want to be here too long Not when the world can go wrong So, wake me when dawn kindly comes If the stars can make it here If the stars can make it, maybe I can make it, if the stars can make it here

I see you everyday In person or in pictures, your eyes always the same Asking me to lend a hand While you fall deeper and deeper, I’m frozen where I stand And I don’t want to be When I see you cry, I cry ‘Cause aren’t your tears the same as mine Can you hear me sing I want the words to reach your ears And may they bring you back to life Where there is injury, poverty, dying and despair then let me be love Where there is darkness, sadness, hopelessness, wickedness and hatred Let me be love Let me be love Sometimes we feel beaten by the world It gets colder than we think it should We push further and further away But a million stars that seem far by day Shine brighter the darker the night I want to be that light Where there is injury, poverty, dying and despair then let me be love Where there is darkness, sadness, hopelessness, wickedness and hatred Let me be love Where there is injury, poverty, dying and despair then let me be love Where there is darkness, sadness, hopelessness, wickedness and hatred Let me be love Let me be love

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
