about

""Maria" is a song I wrote for a benefit concert for Puerto Rico and the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria. It is a love song, written from the point of view of an island, to a woman named Maria."

Lyrics:

Maria, I had heard your name
But I just thought you’d be the same
As all the women I had known before

Maria, with your coal black eyes
Girl, you had me mesmerized
Saw you coming from a mile away

Heard you might be passing through
So I wrote a love song just for you
Even though I knew that you were wild

Wasn’t til I saw you near
Thrashing through the atmosphere
Knew that I’d be hurting for a while

Now all my dreams have drowned
You turned my world around
You and your twisted crown
Queen of the lost and found

You blew my home away
Everything has changed
I’ll never be the same
As the day you came

Just like a hurricane...

Maria, I was so naïve
Careless, dancing in the breeze
You didn’t make it easy
Now I am an island on my knees
And your kiss, a brutal memory

Heard you might be passing through
So I wrote a love song just for you
Even though I knew that you were wild

Wasn’t til I saw you near
Thrashing through the atmosphere
Knew that I’d be hurting for a while

Now all my dreams have drowned
You turned my world around
You and your twisted crown
Queen of the lost and found

You blew my home away
Everything has changed
I’ll never be the same
As the day you came

Just like a hurricane...
Just like a hurricane...
Just like a hurricane...
