"I wrote this song while at my 5th stay in treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. I had just relapsed after 6 months clean/sober and I was completely hopeless. The thought that I would never be able to stay away from drugs/alcohol haunted me. I was certain that I would continue this destructive path until I died. One day it finally dawned on me that I was being selfish. I had been hurting my family for years and used any substance I could find to hide that guilt. I realized that no matter how many times I kept screwing up and hurting them, they still stood by my side. I had stole from, lied to, yelled at, and flat out disrespected my family for years, and they still were there for me. This song is written as if my dad wrote me a letter while I was sitting alone in that rehab for the fifth time in my life. The song is called "Shallow Waves" and it is by far the most personal song I have ever written. Please listen and share. We all know somebody that struggles with addiction, and hopefully this song can help convince them to not let those shallow waves take them away."
