about

Justin’s debut LP “Black Bay Nocturnes” features his plaintive and intimate songwriting framed by rustic, soulful grooves and a sound that calls to mind the works of M. Ward, Ron Sexsmith and Bill Withers.

Track Name: Mystical Highways
Mystical Highways And The Golden Sun
Picking Up Rays In Her Garden

Mystical Highways And The Golden Sun

I can feel it driving me there
I can feel her pulling me back

Mystical highways and the golden sun
Picking up rays in her garden
Drive by in the golden sun
Your love’s skin is golden brown
I miss you most some days at the strangest times

I can feel her driving me there
I can feel her pulling me back
I can feel it pulling me there
Track Name: In The Cards
Don’t make me choose
Between me and you
One sure to lose
And we know

Safe now to say
That you’re feeling the wait
More now each day
Yeah I know

Slow down it’s not in the cards, no
Slow down cause it’s not helping you
Slow down it’s not in the cards, no
Slow down it’s not helping you

I’ve tried to pretend
That I don’t see where this ends
Break now you can
Or let it go

Safe now to say
It’s all gone away
Never will pay
For the crimes

Slow down it’s not in the cards, no
Slow down cause it’s not helping you
Slow down it’s not in the cards, no
Slow down it’s not helping you
Track Name: Falling To Ruin
Last time I saw you I called your name out loud
Said tell me bout’ all your brother‘s plans from then to now
They’re weighing heavy on your mind
Weighing heavy all the time

Life time weighing down your own, always gets in the way
How you feel, how you feel about your love on a day to day
There’s no one waiting there in line
There’s no one waiting there this time

Watch what you’re doing
Falling to ruin my love
Life is what you’re doing from tonight and on

Last time I caught you
You said oh stand by me now
Stop me, lead me, help me, ride this moment out
I feel I’m running out of time
And I need you by my side

Watch what you’re doing
Falling to ruin my love
Life is what you’re doing from tonight

Watch what you’re doing
Falling to ruin my love
Life is what you’re doing from tonight and on
Track Name: Bottom Of The Well
Got a tired old lie and it keeps me from myself
Got a tired old lie and it’s down at the bottom of the well
What do I, what should I do, do I call you on the phone
I know the hour’s so late that you’d rather be alone
I just stir in my head try and think of someone else
But I know it’s not possible with nobody else

Got a tried old lie and it keeps me from myself
Got a tired old lie and it’s down at the bottom of the well

But I’d rather beat on old love with nobody else
I’d rather beat on old love till I’m undone

Got a tired old lie
Got a tired old lie
Got a tired old lie
Got a tired old lie

Got a tired old lie and it keeps me from getting well
No matter how much I drive my mind’s on nobody else
Got a tired old lie and it keeps me from myself
Got a tired old lie and it’s down at the bottom of the well
Track Name: Runnin' For It (You Got Me)
You’ve been runnin’ for your whole life
Never time to think twice
You’ve been runnin’ for it hold tight
You got me runnin’ for my whole life

Telling all your people it‘s change
Breaking all the plans that you made

You’ve been runnin’ for your whole life
Got me runnin’ for it hold tight
You’re just runnin’ from an old lie
And you’ve been searching for this whole time

Telling all your people it’s strange
Someone ends up with all your blame

Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say

Telling all your people it’s strange
Someone ends up with all your blame
Telling all your people it’s change
Breaking all the plans that you made

Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Tell me it’s real and not just something you’d say
Track Name: Where From Here
It’s taken a toll on both of us
So where from here
Come in from the cold leave the steel to rust
The sun will heal

Stop trying to find somebody to change cause they won’t
You’re trying to find somebody to blame and I know

It’s not freeing me now it just takes a hold
End far from here
Don’t go losing me now man you’re in control
Where from here

Stop trying to find somebody to change cause they won’t
You’re trying to find somebody to blame and I know
Don’t tell me all the ways I can change cause I know
You’re trying to find somebody to blame and I know
Track Name: Caught In The Line
Have you done anymore thinking bout’ a way to change my mind
Have you done anymore thinking bout’ a way to get in sight

You’re so far away and I don’t know what to do
You’re so far away now what can I do

No well I haven’t gone
But I’ve been here way too long
And I see what’s going down

Have you done anymore shaking yeah you’re moving for the night
Have you done anymore breaking got to get your feelings right

Well it’s so hard to change and you don’t know what to do
But you’re so far away now what can I do

Oh what’s come over me
Now I’m lost in your apathy
And I see that wave coming down

No well I haven’t gone
But I’ve been here way too long
And I see what’s going down

Caught in the line
I’ve been caught in the line
I’m caught in the line
I’ve been caught in line
I’m losing my mind
I’ve been caught in the line
Track Name: Short On Living
The last thing I recall
Before we lost control
The last thing that I saw
The buildings they did fall

Say I’m never gonna give my time to nobody but you

Cause it would just fall too short of living
Fall too short of living
Yeah you know you can’t talk her out of killing
Talk her out
Or fall too short

The last thing I recall
Before I lost it on
The one that I once loved
I saw her take the fall

Say I’m never gonna give my love to nobody but you

Cause it would just fall too short of living
Fall too short of living
Yeah you know you can’t fall too short of living
Fall too short of living
Yeah you know you can’t talk her out of killing
Talk her out
Or fall too short

The last thing I recall
Before we hit the wall
The last thing that I saw
The storm would take it all

Say I’m never going to give my love to nobody but you

Cause it would just fall too short of living
Fall too short of living
Yeah you know you can’t fall too short of living
Fall too short of living
Yeah you know you can’t fall too short of living
Fall too short of living
Yeah you know you can’t talk her out of killing
Talk her out
Or fall too short
Track Name: Set You On The Run
Sometimes find it hard to say
That you are not the one to blame
Someone else’s heart did break
And set you on the run

Say I’ll sort it out
With or without
I’ll sort it out
With or without

Sometimes find it hard to take
On someone else’s pain and hate
No one else for you I’d brake
To set you on the run

I’ll sort it out
With or without
I’ll sort it out
With or without

Sometimes find it hard to be without
A little more
I know
I know
Track Name: Tell Your Friends
Tell your friends that it’s gone
We packed it up and sealed it
Tell your friends who to call
Never once to feed it

I’m beginning to notice now
I’m beginning to know myself
A little better now

Tell your love she’s the one
She more than once deserved it
The rest all envying us
Yeah more than once I’ve heard it

I’m beginning to notice now
I’m beginning to know myself
A little better now

Is it beginning to show
That I never really knew her well
Well I don’t know
Well I don’t know

Tell your friends that it’s lost
And no one has been searching
Tell your friends that it’s gone
That nothing is for certain
Nothing is for certain
Nothing is for certain
