about

This album is a whole new bag of tricks for me. With "Love Too Soon" being the most loved song (seemingly), I wanted to take the new album in that direction without dropping what made the other songs so special. The album opens powerfully with a wall of sound; "Sound Barriers," the song that named the album. Then with a taste of "Taylor Ogburn EP," "Spin" is a fun song encouraging whimsical swing dancing and nostalgia to a time before most of us were alive. With a jump forward, "Please Come Back" tips it's hat to the 80's with a hard driving beat and feel not-too-distant from a classic power-ballad. "Subject To Change" comes in with meaning, brilliant harmonies, and a ending that is reminiscent of classic Coldplay. Then the album takes a whole new direction into four live acoustic songs. "Draw What You Think," "Find You Faith," "Bird of Flight," and "Rather You Say No" are all performed as if I was in your living room. Just me, my guitar, and a mic. Simple. I hope you all enjoy this album as much as I do. It was a blast to make. Thanks!

Track Name: Sound Barriers
You can't see me clearly, I'm a blur
Moving so quickly between the lines when I'm breakin' out all my nouns and verbs
you can't see me clearly I'm a blur
and until you match my speed you won't see me anymore

I, I'm breaking sound barriers
I, I'm breaking sound
I know I'm leaving you in the dust, but darling I've had enough so
I, I'm breaking sound barriers

Well I'm kickin' my six-speed, no reverse
and if you stop I'll go if you brake I know that you never really had me first

I, I'm breaking sound barriers
I, I'm breaking sound
I know I'm leaving you in the dust, but darling I've had enough so
I, I'm breaking sound barriers

I'm breaking all your laws
I'm running fast
I'm driving past your
spike strips and your crawl
I'm Cassidy
You'll never catch me

I, I'm breaking sound barriers
I, I'm breaking sound
I know I'm leaving you in the dust, but darling I've had enough so
I, I'm breaking sound barriers
I, I'm breaking sound
I know I'm leaving you in the dust, but darling I've had enough so
I, I'm breaking sound barriers
Track Name: Spin
Take my hand in yours
we’re going down to the floor
Gonna teach an old dance
break all the rules
So put your feet on mine
we’re going back in time
Gonna dance away
like it’s 1932

And it’s okay if you fall,
Cause I’ll catch you
then we’ll sway like it’s love
And all the lights are dimmed, and their backing away,
yeah they’ve misplaced their
speech and they’re giving us space.

While we spin,
oh yeah we’re going to spin
So raise your glass
of your whiskey’s and your gin

So they called us classy
yeah they called us hipsters
cause we wear our glasses
and we think it’s cool
So you straighten my bowtie
while I snap on suspenders
cause that’s what we do
when we make our rendezvous

While we spin,
oh yeah we’re going to spin
So raise your glass
of your whiskeys and your gin
Then we’re gonna sway,
gonna sway the night away
So raise your glass
to the Speakeasy Age

So take a bow we’re standing out tonight
When all we do is dance in black and white
And your twirling dress, slow motion in their eyes
So take a bow we’re standing out tonight
Track Name: Please Come Back
I know you're gone.
You're not coming back, it's been way too long.
And as pages have turned and stages I've learned,
that there ain't no return to a book that's been burned.

But I know, don't have to tell me twice.
I'm just missing the warmth at my side.

Cause I miss you. Oh I miss you.
It's been years since I've laughed unrestrained.
Oh I miss you. Yeah, I miss you.
The silence is wrong and it’s strange.
Please come back.

But I know. You fell.
Happened so quickly, before I could say, "Farewell."
And the call I received brought me down on my knees
as I begged and I plead, "Please. Please don't leave me."

Cause I miss you. Oh I miss you.
It's been years since I've laughed unrestrained.
Oh I miss you. Yeah, I miss you.
The silence is wrong and it’s strange.
Please come back.

Oh my God, they're gone; all of the simple smiles and love live seems to cost.
Oh your eyes, they've gone cold with frost as your fluttering heart beats a flattened line across.

Cause I miss you. Oh I miss you.
It's been years since I've laughed unrestrained.
Oh I miss you. Yeah, I miss you.
The silence is wrong and it’s strange.
Please come back.
Track Name: Subject To Change
For so long I thought I'd be the same
Never grow up, never fade
We lived by the rules our parents made
Their command crashed when we took the stage

Subject to change
Subject to change
Subject to change
Subject to change

Open your eyes, I know it's tough
Look past the hate and find the love
You called it wrong cause you don't understand
Well call me crazy, i'm confused cause you preach acceptance
Turn around and spit lies and judgements
We're losing love and you’re the one to blame
I think we're all a little

Subject to change
Subject to change
Subject to change
Subject to change

Are the ones who can't see the good holding signs for the end of the world
Eye are blind, picket cardboard signs, screaming Armageddon.
Track Name: Draw What You Think
You and I, we stand on ghosts of trees
Another forest has thrown his life to sheets
and pure as plain and clean as white paper can be
oh take your pencil draw what you think of me
Sure we've had an argument or two
But that don't change that I still care for you
And I know I could never change your mind, you're free.
I know what you think of me
And life, dies for life
Before you could say hello you said goodbye
And though the past has hurt you, I am here, you see
I'll change what you think of me
And though the trees have fallen
and the birds of tears are calling
it'd be white blank paper gone to waste
So use your favorite colors
and just show me how you suffered
But, I just want a drawing you could erase
And life, it dies for life
Before you could say hello you said goodbye
And though the past has hurt you, I am here, you see
I'll change what you think of me
Oh doodle down
don't care if it's perfect, spread the lead around
I need relief
I've spent way too long just trying to esteem
Track Name: Find You Faith
I got lost I fear,
but folded maps and stars won't take me there.
I set sail and the skies are clear,
but compasses don't point to you, my dear.

And though I don't who you are
I'm rushing wildly, directly to your open arms.
And if you could find me a home and keep me safe
I'll find you faith.

Tied to the train tracks of life.
Tried to run but the ropes are tied too tight.
So I'm just waiting here to die.
Sure do wish you were here by my side.

And though I don't who you are
I'm rushing wildly, directly to your open arms.
And if you could find me a home and keep me safe
I'll find you faith.

Sure, I am scared right out my mind
my floors been worn from praying here.
I don't want to let it go,
my nerves say "overcome your fears."

And though I don't who you are
I'm rushing wildly, directly to your open arms.
And if you could find me a home and keep me safe
I'll find you faith.
Track Name: Bird of Flight
Oh bird of flight I would never clip your wings just to teach you to fly
it just ain't right, and the people that do how they sleep at night
just blows my mind, cause if I was eating I would lose my appetite

Oh sailboat sail, with the wind on your back, you will float here and there
but if winds do fail, on a blustery day, you won't sink with the whales
the boat's not frail, rocking to and fro like a breath is exhaled

I'm sure you know what I mean, need stick together I'll be the threads you be the seams
oh we'd make a great team just grab ahold my hand start following
trust me, just trust me

oh and dogs alone, nothings gonna go anywhere when you howl at the moon
it's bright and blue, a million miles away, doesn't care about you
so change your tune, sing a simple song and the dogs will come to you
Track Name: Rather You Say No
The clock is fading
I'm tired of waiting for you to meet me halfway
My legs are pacing
They've lost their patience, listening for you to say

That I, I love you
but at this rate that's never gonna come.
So girl, make up your mind,
cause I'd rather you say, "no" than lead me on.

Now your intentions are hid by actions
but I can tell the words they say are lies,
but you've forgotten, You've lost your lovin'
and I'd hate for you to prove to me I'm right.

That I, I love you
but at this rate that's never gonna come.
So girl, make up your mind,
cause I'd rather you say, "no" than lead me on.

Now the summer brought your song to my ears
and the bright and vivid fall sings the colors that your hear
and the winter's just keeping everything cool
while the springtime's bringing me back to you

That I, I love you
but at this rate that's never gonna come.
So girl, make up your mind,
cause I'd rather you say, "no"
cause I'd rather you say, "no"
cause I'd rather you say, "no" than lead me on.
