about

Hell's Kitchen Recording, myself and George Wallace produced this record in the obscure depths of Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Inspired by the songs and warmth of the music that set my mind free, coupled with the sonic influence of the contemporary, I aimed for a dynamic mixture to capture the contemplation of my emotions. The songs recorded here are a document of a life I live and dream. Nothing you hear is an absolute or a reproach. It is simply something that emanates from my heart. And hopefully breaches the beaches to you. The title is my sing off.

about

Ryan Martin New York, New York

Grown in the northern side of California, a suburbanite found a love for melodies. To be misunderstood is a cop out and to be brave is a revelation. So I moved East and found a home in New York City. With the welcoming of new friends and support of humble minds I was able to make a record entitled "For All The Beautiful Losers." Since then I've been performing with familiar friends of this album. ... more

Track Name: New York Women
I know when Lauren sleeps at night
She welcomes my love with the flick of the light
But all you New York women
Don't you want to change my mind
Well come on give me a ride
There are things I would like to give back
You gotta lighten the load just to keep in in tact
But all you New York women
Don't you want to change my mind
Well come on give me a ride
Take me to the country
Or I'm gonna lose my mind
Well come on give me a ride
Track Name: Little Tramp
Hey, get used
Down on Cotner Avenue
Ther'es a woman with a devil's smile
And she'll make you coem a while
Like every woman who can't wait to jump in my death bed
Better guard my soul
And lay down low
There's a woman born a little tramp
Hey, I'm blue
You got my fill of you
Now there are no stars in LA
Just vacancies begging to stay
Like every woman who can't wait to jump in my death bed
Better guard my soul
And lay down low
There's a woman born a little tramp
Track Name: Replacement Avenue
Some one's looking out over Replacement Avenue
Trying to find a reason he was stuck inside this zoo
He's doing tricks for all the women making a spectacle of you
The event of the season with your animal attitide
And there's no time here left for me
When the losers got the best seats in the front row of the bar
And I'm standing in line trying to be a star
Don't ask questions
Maybe I'll be a poet or a prophet for the men
Trying to find what's outside the cage that their in
But no one listens to you anyway like when we hear the song "Imagine"
We all just keep moving along competing for the win
And there's no time here left for me
When the losers got the best seats in the front row of the bar
And I'm standing in line trying to be a star
Get busy
Get into your comic dress we're going to the show
The tragedy of liberty and it's rules on what you'll know
But I've been watching shadows by the fire on the wall
I turn my head out from the chains, it's puppets after all
And there's no time here left for me
When the losers got the best seats in the front row of the bar
And I'm standing in line trying to be a star
Stop beleiving
Track Name: Fool In Love
I may be a fool in love
On a ship aimed toward the sun
And the closer that I come
I lose the path back to where I'm from
But oh its the strangest feeling
Purple stars and my heart keeps sinking
I'm waiting for my oblivion
I may be put inside a cage
And shackled to all of my mistakes
But when I come across a face like yours
I believe I can be saved
But oh its the strangest feeling
Purple stars and my heart keeps sinking
I'm waiting for my oblivion
Track Name: Either Way (I Am Free)
Maybe I'm in an ocean
Or maybe I'm in a field
Maybe I'm a garden
With all my seeds concealed
Either way I am free
To love you the way I do
Maybe I'm on a river
Or maybe I'm on a plane
Flying to an island
To live out the rest of my days
Either way I am free
To love you the way I do
Maybe I will never see your face again
Mayeb you'll be married
And far from where I am
Either way I am free
To love you the way I do
Track Name: Whiskey Girl
Won't you meet me back down the line
We'll sit by the estuary
This is where I lost my heart
Left on the river ferry
A billion people living lies
But I had truth in my bed
Now I can't recognize
A single face that I've met
My woman
My whiskey girl
Won't you dance for me?
Now I pass the time in bars
And down by the railroad tracks
Where I run a catch a car
To any place I've never been yet
My woman
My whiskey girl
Touch your lips with mine
Track Name: Private Holiday
You and me babe taking our time though out the middle of the day
People are scared trying too hard just to make the time pay
Here in the bed, feeling the same like on a private holiday
Talking stories of past and hiding under covers oh baby wont you stay
But oh how the lights of the city seem to open wide
And oh how the songs that your playing want to make me cry
Here comes another one going to turn my world around
She's not like the other ones
She's got a sweeter sound
Oh a picture babe can't tell me what its worth
To hold you in my arms to release me from this curse
When new love shines a light on the world
Lets jump in the car roll out of town and drive down to the bay
With your toes in the sand, holding your hand my heart's hit by every wave
Oh how the tides of the ocean seem to open wide
And oh how the songs that your playing want to make me cry
It occurred to me what life could be
When you live out a fantasy
A dream reality
Oh a picture babe can't tell me what its worth
To hold you in my arms to release me from this curse
When new love shines a light on the world
Byut don't you feel bad about the times
When the time comes and we have to say goodbye
Look ahead
Track Name: Hard Man To Love
Pockets of rain
And I was born to a strangers name
And the bluebird well calls me home again
Is sorrow in vain
If it drips from lovers remains
Like the dew drops on my window pane
And I'm sick of all the games
Walking with ghosts
And I dance with the sunrise host
So I catch a ride from the mad man to the coast
Where I dig for a losers hope
Cuse I'm a hard man to love
Like a setting sun
A hard man to love
Can't give enough
A hard man to love
Cause I'm always on the run
But from what?
Dark country girl
Like a rag all unflurled
Makes a stain upon my bed then shes gone again
So I swing with the trees
Sing my song to the fallen leaves
and I'm mystified by all that I see
And I'm sinking when I breath
Cause I'm a hard man to love
Like a setting sun
A hard man to love
Can't give enough
A hard man to love
Cause I'm always on the run
But from what?
That perfect angel face
Is going to tear me apart
I can't seem to catch her eye
So I think I'll go get drunk
But it's hard to lie in the cold sheets of life
Alone
Track Name: Its Always Been Bad
Oh baby I know it well
Its the train that runs from heavan to hell
And it only takes a blink of an eye
From the taste of your lips to a fading sigh
In a capsized smile there's a hollow below
Among the myriads of men and no one I know
And the grace of your skirt above your knee
As you stand before me I'm melancholy
And if you want my heart
Put it down from the start
Cause i'ts always been bad when you don't love what you have
Stop the music, turn off the charm
Because it hurts so bad when life is this warm
And like the pharaohs try to save his love
It was born to die in the history books
And if you want my heart
Put it down from the start
Cause it's always been bad when you don't love what you have
Don't pick that number and wait till your dead
I got a loaded head
On the other side
Between war and my lonliness
I'm a joker at best
Now watch me dance
With a dagger I reached and stabbed the moon
And the milk dripped own into my room
Now I'm staring at the walls trying to go blind
Because I'm tired of watching love pass me by
And if want my heart
Put it down from the start
Cause it's always been bad if you don't love what you have
Track Name: Blue Blue Winter
Sad as clowns and white as doves
With clouds moving low and ominous
Derelicts in cafe tombs
Shuffling cards and pushing brooms
And I've done my best to love
But when I wake with a morning cup
Forests deep with melancholy
I've spent my blue blue winter
In the depths of dark water with the ghosts of grace
I lost my blue blue mountains
In the haze of ambitions in my young days
Forget me and sail away
On the ships that carry the suffering
Empty seas of blue, red skies of pain
With glaciers of time that melt away
And I've done my best to give
But you received my sin
Gardens of dead hyacinths
I spent my blue blue winter
In the depths of dark water with the ghosts of grace
I lost my blue blue mountains
In the haze of questions in my young days
But I lost my will to live
And the floor is caving in
For all I lost I can't begin
Track Name: For The Going Down
When all the worn out lovers are all taken in
And the earth uncovered we will start again
There's a war out in the holy city night
There's a young man running from a pack of knives
And the sage he's speaking to the sleeping heards
While the visionary is always called absurd
Oh that poor girl she was born with out a chance
The incarnation of the everlong romance
And you give real good lovin'
Just like I've had before
So tonight I'm staying up
Find a stranger and take em' out
Give a laugh and raise a cup
For the going down
And the widows crying while the thief is prying
The get away car it waits outside lost dream bar
But I'm all right now baby we all bleed sometimes
I'm just waiting down here to awaken life
And you give real good lovin'
Just like I've had before
So tonight I'm staying up
Find a stranger and take em' out
Give a laugh and raise a cup
For the going down
Oh lover I'm inspired
By the life and by the fire
I'm a wandering war
Track Name: Birds Through Buildings
A change in a man
Into the mirror he falls
Never to come back
So child be warned
You wander in the night
You'll become a stranger to the light
To be alive
To breath and decide
That you will never fly
Or to welcome death
To find it in your dreams
And why we jump from buildings
This is why we jump from buildings
