about

Yes, Tim's second album is packed with catchy tunes, soaring harmonies, and rockin' guitars; in short, everything that you have come to expect.

But the message is more important than the music. Only kindness and compassion can resolve the anger and hatred that we see around us every day. Do you see it? Then join the Revolution!

Track Name: Building My House
Oh I’m building, building, building my house.

Laying a solid foundation,
One that won’t wash away.
Making love my vocation,
And since there’s just one power there can be no separation.

I am building my house, making it strong,
It’s a beautiful creation, gonna last my whole life long.
I’m doing the work, taking my time,
Gonna keep on hammering until I reach that finish line.
I’m building, building, building my house.

Four good walls to surround me,
A roof above to keep me dry.
And if I ever feel lonely,
I just open up my windows wide, let that sunshine come inside

I am building my house, making it strong
It’s a beautiful creation, gonna last my whole life long
I’m doing the work, taking my time
Gonna keep on hammering until I reach that finish line
I’m building, building,
Oh I’m building, building,
Oooh I’m building, building, building my house
Track Name: I Wanna Fall
Love, you come and go just like the rain,
I long to splash in your puddles, play like a child again.
But when the clouds roll in I run inside to keep warm,
Afraid of the storm

But I wanna fall in love,
I wanna see the world through love’s eyes.
To go mad with love, let the walls come tumblin’ down,
Finally take off my disguise.

So many weary days, trying to hold back the flood,
Building up the levees to stop the rushing waters and the mud.
But now I’m outside waiting, waiting for the deluge to come pouring down,
And in love I will drown.

Oh I, I wanna fall in love,
I wanna see the world through love’s eyes.
To go mad with love, let the walls come tumblin’ down,
Finally take off my disguise.

Oh I, I wanna fall in love,
I wanna see the world through love’s eyes.
To go mad with love, let the walls come tumblin’ down,
Finally take off my disguise,
Finally take off my disguise.
Track Name: Four Agreements
My word is my bond
A sacred gift only I can bestow.
So may I be mindful of what I say
And always let kind words flow.

Now others may say and do things that hurt me
So may I wait before I act.
Take the time to remember, it's not about me
Everyone’s thoughts come from their own reality.

Gonna say what I mean, and mean what I say,
And whatever others do, I don't have to play.
I'll find the courage to ask, to be as clear as I can be
And always do my best. Can we agree?

Now tell me why
We are so quick to judge.
Assuming we have all the answers
Refusing to budge.

Gotta say what you mean, and mean what you say,
And whatever others do, you don't have to play. (It’s not about you anyway)
Find the courage to ask, and be as clear as you can be
And always do your best. Now can we agree?

Yes, it's a tall, tall order
Might take a lifetime to digest.
But don’t ya know, you can take it real slow
No you don’t have to get it all right, you just have to do your best.

So let’s say what we mean, and mean what we say,
Whatever others do, you don't have to play. (It’s not about you anyway)
Find the courage to ask, and be as clear as you can be
And always do your best. Now can we agree?
Track Name: Wait on My Heart
When there's no shelter from the storm,
No blanket to keep me warm.
When there's no answer, no reason why,
No messages written in the sky.

When all my friends are far away,
I'm all alone with my mistakes.
When I can't stop the tears from fallin',
And I can hear the darkness callin'.

I will wait on my heart, wait on my heart,
When my whole world is fallin' apart,
Then I will wait on my heart.

When monsters are hidin', underneath my bed,
Everywhere I look I see what I dread.
And my regrets keep chasin' me down,
I'm runnin' in circles, spinnin' round and round and round.

I will wait on my heart, wait on my heart,
When my whole world is fallin' apart,
Then I will wait on my heart.

Wait, wait on my heart,
When my whole world is fallin' apart,
Then I will wait, I will wait on my heart.
Track Name: Pre-Approved
Rollin’ home from my job yesterday, like so many times before,
Pulled my car up on into the drive.
Feelin’ tired and worn out from all the push and shove and the keepin’ score,
I’m finally home but barely alive.

Made my way inside, stopped by my mailbox, grabbed all my mail,
More and more junk I receive all the time.
Just before it gets tossed in the trash I see something that makes me stop and look twice,
And here are the words that, blew my mind.

You’re pre-approved, that’s what the letter said,
Pre-approved, those are the words I read, you’re pre-approved.

After dinner it’s time to unwind, forget my stressful day,
But those words just would not leave me alone.
Then all at once it hit me, exactly what they were trying to say,
I guess that a part of me, had always known.

I’m pre-approved, that’s what the letter said,
Pre-approved, those are the words I read, I’m pre-approved.

No more living in fear of rejection,
I’m quitting this game of win or lose.
Saying hello to a brand new direction,
Now I know I’ve got nothing to prove.

You’re pre-approved, that’s what the letter said,
Pre-approved, those are the words I read.

You’re pre-approved, that’s what the letter said,
Pre-approved, those are the words I read,
You’re pre-approved.
Track Name: When the Healing Begins
I can still remember the day you died
The clouds nearly swallowed the sun.
With my tears streaming down, so sure I would drown
From a loss that could not be overcome

Have you ever felt the anger when someone left you all alone,
A fiery flame burning hot with your rage.
When the anger fades away, the sadness remains,
You open up that book again and finally turn the page.

Cuz there is a power that has always been
And there is a presence that lies deep within
It's a power for good and once understood
That's when the healing begins.

Now some folks believe, we'll meet in heaven someday,
And others think we end at the grave.
But there's one thing I know, you never really left me,
I can feel you beside me each and every day

Cuz there is a power that has always been
And there is a presence that lies deep within
It's a power for good and once understood, that's when the healing begins.

The night can be unkind so let it all unwind,
Then you’ll catch a peek of the love you seek.
And when the days get long the rhythm feels all wrong
Time to plant a seed of the love you need, it’s all you need.

There is a power that has always been
And there is a presence that lies deep within
It's a power for good and once understood
That's when the healing, when you feel what you’re feeling,
That's when the healing begins.
Track Name: Trudge
Trudge, keep going till the finish line
Trudge, everything’s gonna work out fine
Trudge, one day you’ll wake up and find your miracle, yeah your miracle

Trudge, keep going till the finish line
Trudge, everything’s gonna work out fine
Trudge, one day you’ll wake up and find your miracle, yeah your miracle

Everything used to be so easy, why are these obstacles in my way?
Maybe I don’t understand the way of the world
Feels like I'm going against the grain

Gotta trudge, keep going till the finish line
Trudge, everything’s gonna work out fine
Trudge, one day you’ll wake up and find your miracle yeah, your miracle

If doors are closing all around you, and you're driving down dead-end streets
There's another way out of this place
No need for going down in defeat, Oh no.

Out on the eastern horizon comes the breaking of the dawn
So when the darkness feels like forever remember the morning will come,
Oh yeah, yeah.

Sometimes you gotta, trudge, keep going till the finish line
Come on and trudge, everything’s gonna work out fine
Just trudge, one day you will wake up and find your miracle
Come on and trudge, one day you’ll wake up and find your miracle.
Track Name: Too Many Times
Too many times I've let her down,
Too many times the tears have come
Still she walks beside me every day,
And tells me I'm the only one,
I'm the only one.

She is patient, she is strong,
She stands by me when everybody else is gone.
She defends me right or wrong
So I'm sendin' her my love in this song.

Money doesn't mean too much to her,
Fancy things don't turn her head.
She only needs to know I'll be there, yeah,
And she can trust the words I said,
Trust the words I said

She is patient, she is strong,
She stands by me when everybody else is gone.
She defends me right or wrong
So I'm sendin' her my love.

Taken for granted,
She knows that story so well.
So I'm, takin' a stand right now.
I’m gonna love her, yeah, I'm gonna love her,
This is my sacred vow.

She is gentle, she is kind.
Helps me carry on, eases my mind.
The two of us are intertwined,
So I'm sendin' her my love.

She is patient, she is strong,
She stands by me when everybody else is gone.
She defends me right or wrong,
So I'm sendin' her my love.
Yes I'm sendin' her my love.
Track Name: Love Revolution
You can see it on the TV
You can go online or listen to the radio
All the voices of hatred and fear
Images of violence everywhere you go

The politicians want to build their walls
They prey on anger and despair
Now I don't claim to have all the answers
But I know we have more than enough to share

And I’m not the only one,
Can you feel the change?

We need a love revolution (love revolution)
Let's put it all on the line (love revolution)
We need a love revolution (love revolution)
It's time, time for a love revolution

Why do we persist in competition?
Always hustling for more and more
Whenever we surrender to the fiction of division
We wind up in endless wars

And who will speak for the voiceless?
The refugees, the outcasts, the prisoners and the pawns
Can’t you see that all of us are bound together?
So we need to build a world that works for everyone.

People are you with me,
Will you make a change?

We need a love revolution (love revolution)
Let's put it all on the line (love revolution)
We need a love revolution (love revolution)
It's time, time for a love revolution

Even mother earth is in trouble
And we live like we don't know
Every day it's gettin' hotter and hotter
When the water rises where will we go?

If we stand together,
We can be the change.

We need a love revolution (love revolution)
Let's put it all on the line (love revolution)
We need a love revolution (love revolution)
It's time, time for a love revolution
Revolution!
Track Name: Sing it All Over Again
Gonna sit down here and put some pen to paper,
Make a melody and find some lines that rhyme.
Maybe my words won’t mean too much to you,
And that’s fine, just fine.

Do you ever think about the things you hold on to,
Or remember anyone you left behind?
All I need is a song to remind me,
To take me to another time.

I wanna sing it all over again,
I wanna hear it going ‘round in my head.
I gotta play that song until the morning comes,
And then I’ll sing it all over again.
Yes I’ll sing it all over again.
