So willing to believe ..... Why would you learn.... to de....ceive....

Description
Short Song Description:
I write a lot of song having to do with being young. Youth inspires me because it's generally a time in our lives that we are our purest and happiest. Music, to me represents an expression of my soul, the part of me that's incapable of anything less than perfection, how fortuitous that the two should meet.
