about

Just before I passed by the Travelers Hotel sign here in downtown San Antonio... I was telling myself that I don't want to write and record songs anymore. It just seemed silly. I have so many records for you to pick and choose from... so why do you need one more?

Then, I saw the sign: Travelers Hotel.

By the time I got to the car, I had all these characters in my head... these sounds and ideas of sounds. I knew I had to start recording and writing. Oh well.... I guess giving up making music is NOT in the cards for me.

I realized that even though I love you guys.... my fans, friends, supporters, encouragers.... I wasn't writing this music for you. I was writing it for me! It saves my own life, my sanity, my heartbreak and my own internal struggle in this life.

But the rewarding part of it all is the fact that you guys are right with me and for that - I am so grateful!

This album is officially 12 songs - ending with Forgiveness
But for the digital version I've included 3 Bonus Tracks for you as well!
The original 12 songs clock in at 1 hour and 1 minute.... so you are definitely getting the grand tour of Travelers Hotel.

All the lyrics and guitar chords are included here as well.
Download away.
Crank up the car stereo.
Slip on your headphones....

We are, one in the spirit

Love one another, just love one another

Abandon yourself
To ever-transcending Grace
Ever-transcending Grace

work so hard to be loved, loved, loved, loved


In loving me
You made me lovable
You made me lovable
In loving me you....

In loving me
So unconditional
Unconditional
You made me lovable

We are, one in the spirit

work so hard to be loved, loved, loved, loved

Ohhh, I am a witness

Trade the drumbeat of doom
For a song in your heart
And twinkle in your eye
Twinkle in your eye

Revolutionary revelation
Extraordinary Adoration
Calling out to you

We are, one in the spirit

work so hard to be loved, loved, loved, loved
Track Name: Words of a Woman
Words of a woman
capo 7th fret

INTRO:
G F C

The words of a woman won't go away
Like a thumbprint on a heart of clay
They are knives in your back, they can dance on her tongue
They can run through your mind, make you come undone

The words of a woman can break your heart
Without lifting a finger, can tear you apart
She can give you a burden, with her heavy sigh
Or make you uneasy with that look in her eye

The words of a woman can shine like the sun
Make a man feel like he's Gods favorite son
They give hope to the hopeless, sight to the blind
They can melt a hard heart and ease your troubled mind

The words of a women, hold the power to destroy
But are never more beautiful when theyre bringing me joy
The words of a women, hold the power to destroy
But are never more beautiful when theyre bringing me joy


The words of a woman could buy back your past
Make the chains fall away, make you free at last
The words of a woman may come too late
Leave you stranded without keys at heavens gate

I'd tattoo them on my heart if I only could
They are meant to be loved, not understood
The words of a woman are her silver and gold
When I steal them away my heart grows cold

The words of a woman are just not fair
Good thing for me I don't even care
The words of a woman make my blood run hot
But her language of love cannot be bought
