Anyone who has been to the corner of Romans and 7th street (Romans 7) knows what this is about. You're in a place where you're struggling to find the way to the next thing, the next level, knowing you don't belong in the place you currently are. Find the Voice and you find the way there.


Well all of this time I've been
Waiting for one clear reason
To turn around and go
In another way

And as I sat here thinking
After forty long days of drinking
Suddenly everything
Became clear as day

I'm like a fish out of water
Can't seem to do what I oughta
Somewhere inside there's a Voice
I'm trying to hear

So I just think that I will
Quit this old gig that I have
And find a quiet place
Where I can rest awhile

I get so tore down broke up
I gotta fight just to keep my chin up
But what kind of good does it do
When you don't belong?

When you're a fish out of water
Can't seem to do what you oughta
Somewhere inside there's a Voice
That you're trying to hear.

I've been a songwriter forever writing a number of choruses over the years. But then things changed and I found myself out of that world. In retrospect, by some gracious act of love for me.

I continued over the years to write, mostly singing and playing for small crowds - me, the cat, the dog.

It was my middle son, also a songwriter and recording artist, deciding these must be produced. Thanks.
