"No Reason" was the first song I tackled as soon as I had my new home and studio set up. Almost set up. We were still laying down the plank flooring, for gods sake .. boxes still packed sky high in the basement. Well, it's Mid-August 2018 now and I'm listening back as I add these song notes. I've learned so much more since firing up the studio for the first time in September of 17. And all my life, this is where I wanted to be. Making music to make music. And the freedom to do it .. and by the grace of god's good hand, I've managed to do just that. xoRJ


No reason for leaving you
Just say he's gone again
No list of things to do
And no reason for leaving you

The whispering winter wind
Snowman is on his way
I'm off to somewhere new
With no reason for leaving you

I can't understand it
My eyes are too blind to see
How can I hurt you
When you've been so kind to me, yeah -

Gone are those crazy days
Rain's taken summer's place
I feel so sad and blue
With no reason for leaving you

This song offers not one clue
And no reason for leaving you ... yeah -
