about

You know - I feel like I've come to a place in life where I'm comfortable. It's easy to look ahead at 36 with a positive outlook and the days and months just seem to make a little more sense. I think this collection of songs really shares where my head is at and I'm so proud to share them with you.

about

Kevin Stokley Cincinnati, Ohio

“Kevin Stokley has magnified and glorified the intersecting sweet spot of love for distinctly country music, swelling guitar string arrangements and the tricky craft of writing songs that are both intensely personal and universally identifiable.”

Track Name: Outlive Ourselves
I go back in my mind
Those Friday nights
Heart on my hand, removin’ my hat
Up in the stands, high school band
Playin that National Anthem

And all that I wanted was all that you had
In that hand-me-down car there was no looking back
Every question that life had to ask
We’d have forever to answer

Whether it’s train tracks or river banks
A bypass or water tanks
They’re all gonna crumble someday
But the memories stay

Out past all those freeways
Outlasting all those stars
Where the curfew county line freedom
Made us who we are

Out where God is watching
On the streets where we were raised
In the towns where we were famous
Where the spray paint knows our name
Tonight feels like maybe we could outlive ourselves

You get two summers that you never forget
You’re gonna be a legend but you don’t know it yet
The stories we tell, heaven and hell
Yeah, we got the scars to prove em

And all of those train tracks or river banks
Bypass or water tanks
They’re all gonna crumble someday
But the memories stay

Outlive our first kiss by a mile
Outrun our first midnight running wild
Outdream all the fires we felt inside

Tonight feels like maybe we could outlive ourselves

Track Name: My Apologies
My apologies for the world
Or at least this little cradle of the south
And the parts that I tore up in this small town
I’d say I didn’t know what I was doing
But I knew You

So my apologies for the world
And the way we always need to have a king
Politics, rock ‘n Roll, and everything
I’d say You never warned us, but You did
I’ve read your book

I know it ain’t like I’ve been elected
No, I don’t speak for anyone
I sure ain’t got this living thing perfected
Drowning in the things I wish I’d never done
But if I’m being honest and if You’re really listening
Truth is I can’t promise things will be much different

But my apologies for the world
And the times I didn’t notice what You made
When You lit a cornfield sunset up and I looked away
Like beauty ain’t some precious kind of gift
I swear I know it is.

And my apologies for the world
And the way we all pretend that we’re all different
Like You said those words in red and never meant it
Like there’s more to life than how we learn to love
But enough’s enough

I know it ain’t like I’ve been elected
No, I don’t speak for anyone
I sure ain’t got this living thing perfected
Drowning in the things I wish I’d never done
But if I’m being honest and if You’re really listening
Truth is I can’t promise things will be much different

Please let me say I’m so sorry
Even when I can’t find the words
And thank you for wild nights and Sundays
And all those second shots I don’t deserve

I know it ain’t like I’ve been elected
No, I don’t speak for anyone
I sure ain’t got this living thing perfected
Drowning in the things I wish I’d never done
But if I’m being honest and if You’re really listening
Truth is I can’t promise things will be much different

But my apologies for the world
My apologies for my world
My apologies for Your world
