about

"You and Me" is my third venture. I chose a 3 song EP as I felt that these songs were best collected together rather than grouped with other songs that may not share a similar theme.
"Lonely Man" and "You and Me" share a similar theme, where I sing of the isolation and emptiness that permeate social media. Granted, I initially felt that social media was a great way to get in contact with old friends and classmates. However that now seems to lean towards an ugliness of an almost censorship atmosphere.
"True" goes into depth of a lost relationship, whereby the protagonist is haunted by a past love.
I truly enjoy writing and performing in what I call a "classic" or "traditional" sounding style of country music. I have always felt that country music along with traditional blues music are the most honest, original forms of American music. I sincerely hope that you enjoy my latest music as much as I have creating it.

Thank You,
Stan Matthews

about

Stan Matthews Worcester, Massachusetts

I’m a solo artist . My music is stark, stripped bare, the lyrics are honest. I sing about life from the perspective of the working man. My songs take you on life’s journey; search for love, joy of a child’s birth,the struggle of relationships, the anguish at the loss of a job, the sorrow at a loved one’s passing. I perform locally and my music can be heard on radio worldwide. ... more

Track Name: Lonely Man
I’ll sing you a song
That’ll move you to cry
Hold your head in your hands
Without asking why

This world as we know it
Can be heartless and cruel
We hide behind cell phones
And keyboards its true

The further I go walking down this road
The less assured of where I am
Everywhere I go doors slammed in my face
Just a lonely man
Just a lonely man

All the while we preach
We’ll be your friend ‘til the end
But the lonely man lays there
No one to comfort him

A bottle for friendship
Or a needle to some
No warmth for many
No love for no one

The further I go walking down this road
The less assured of where I am
I see the face of hate staring down at me
Just a lonely man
Just a lonely man
Track Name: True
True sadness is a woman
She wraps her arms around you at night
And rocks you to sleep
She whispers lullaby's so sweet
One's I never heard as a child.

Night is always the worst.
The house is empty, quiet and still
Since you have gone.

All the signs you left me
Painted on the walls
Pleading with me
change my Self destructive ways.

I never listened
I never read
And now emptiness
Is my eternal pain.
Track Name: You and Me
You don't want to know me
You don't want to know my name
You're just looking for someone
Someone that you can blame.

Blame for all the problems in this world
Blame for all the sorrow that occurs

Hunger hopelessness and pain
Does the color of your skin cause you shame.

You can't change history
Just to make yourself feel good
You can't undo the wrong
Done against those who were misunderstood

You can't change the world
Believe me I wanted to

You can only change yourself
Open your heart is all you can do

I don't care what thoughts you think
I don't care what flag you wave
There's no difference between you and me
Open your heart and you will see

Help your neighbor when you can
It'll make you a better man
Remember to fill your heart with love
There'll be no vacancy for hate.
