Even When I'm Aching is a song that came out of the pandemic year of 2020. A hard year for everyone, this song came out of some serious personal pain and hopelessness. I always try to see the light in the darkest times, and 2020 really challenged that. My partner was diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time the country shut down, and it really tested my ability to see things in a positive light. As I had to watch her go through treatment in isolation due to covid, it made my love and admiration for her grow even more. This is a love song.


Hold on I’m coming back
To set you free
I know I’m just man
Let our guard down to see

Only you can do what’s in your heart
If ever there’s a reason you’ve found yourself alone
Look within and you will find redemption
No matter where it comes from you’ve got to hold on

Cuz they say love can heal every other emotion
Sometimes it’s hard to know just how it feels
Do your best to find some inspiration
And I will do my best to always love you

Cuz I feel the love today, even when I’m aching
And I give it all away, to know this isn’t all
Cuz I feel the love today, even when I’m aching
And I give it all away, to know how you feel

Baby When it all just seems low
And I just want to give in, i wanna lose control

Call on me so we can be together
I'll try my best to lean you and it'll last forever
