A sneak-peek from Jonathan's new full-length studio album, Unguarded Heart


Your will can take you there
hoofbeats on hallowed ground
patterns in the trees
melodies abound

When you come to the brink
sanity is closer than you think
beyond fences, beyond walls
beyond courts and concert halls
the only constant constantly calls...

Dance into the Green World
melt into the green world
become the green world

Bark and moss and hide and bone
I can't unsee the things I've seen
I rub my belly upon the stone
the earth is a bed and my dreams are green

I cannot fear the dirt
I cannot wear this plastic shirt
I lay me down and heal the hurt
these roots go deep, I will follow
down into sleep I will wake
the trunk of my chest is not hollow
my skin is shed, I am the snake

Slowly, I fathom the depth of the sacred center of all.
gratefully, I fathom the depth of the sacred center of all.

This essential element in the launch of my “music career” had been the first step I just wouldn’t take for ten years. I think I was waiting until I was “good enough” to release a professional album.
