"Across The Bar" from Akalive features songs that capture a full range of emotions. The country rock title track, "Across the Bar," chronicles the rewards and dangers of searching for love from across the bar (Where The Wild Things Are). "Time Tickin' Away" is a powerful rock anthem about the passage of time we all face. "Stutter" is the story of tongue twisted love. "Zero" finds the singer struggling with "I'm not your hero...anymore". "While She Sleeps" is a dreamy early morning poem to a still- sleeping lover. "On You" is a mesmerizing study of the commitment of love. "Love At Gate 23" tells the story of a man's attraction for an airline steward "is this my imagination or could it be...Love at Gate 23." "Invitation to My Heart" encourages us to accept the invitation to let love into your heart and cautions "don't give it away." "Bad Mistake" tells how one man's loss can be another man's gain, "cause tonight, she's here with me." "Crash" paints a pointed picture of the fate that awaits the pretender. "Take Me Back To Ohio," from the opening sax line, captures a country boy\'s melancholy coming of age. "Heaven on Earth" is an upbeat celebration of the love of two people. "Think Things Over" completes the CD with the heart-wrenching story, ending with whispered strains of "she's gonna think things over... and over...and over...".
