Rise. No matter who or what tries to bring you down.
Rise above it with grace.

HEART AS A SWORD
Music & Lyrics by Stavros

Never Again, I say
Never Again, This Way
Not even a single inch

I wont be damaged by you
I wont be held back by you
This is my last chance

Here's where I draw
My Heart as a Sword
Against all your meddling
To make me something I'm not

Here's where the violence ends
Here's where I begin again
Gonna step out like a star

Here's to the years I've lost
They're gone and dust
I'm old, but far from dead

Here's where I draw
My Heart as a Sword
Against all your meddling
Against all the shameful acts

We could've been better than this
Can't even honor one kiss
Or the lives we gave to the world,
The lives we gave to the world

Standing Against Love
Standing Against Love

Never Again, I say
Never Again, This Way
Not even a single inch
Not even a single inch
Not even a single inch
Not even a single inch

Here's where I draw
My Heart as a Sword
Against all your meddling
To make me something I'm not

about

Cherokee Starlight Albuquerque, New Mexico

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
