about

Steven Wesley Guiles San Dimas, California

It's not every year an artist writes 70+ songs so that he can release 9 songs for his first solo album. It's also not always possible when said artist is a devoted husband, father of two, and a full-time middle school teacher. If you find Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver good company, then you will be right at home pulling up a chair and a pair of earbuds and soaking his gorgeous records. ... more

Track Name: True Blue
When we first met you were the sun and moon
Then you brought me home on the 8th of June
I kissed your lips and you touched my face
I had a deep deep love, it was a great escape

Every move you made, I followed close
But then you'd leave me home, all alone
I'd do anything you asked of me
So I waited there for you patiently

Oh ohhh

I've always looked up to you
So you can see that I'm true
Brought you your favorite shoes
And that's not all that I'll do
I'll walk over fire for you
Keep my eyes on you I'm true blue
I'm true blue blue true true true blue

When you first hit me I was a wreck
But it wasn’t long till I was crawlin’ back
I was on the floor, down by your knees
I was beggin’ you to take me by my leash

But you grabbed my neck, threw me in the truck
I whimpered and whined but I was out of luck
You drove me to the edge of town
Opened the door and threw me out but

Oh ohhh

I've always looked up to you
So you can see that I'm true
Brought you your favorite shoes
And that's not all that I'll do
I'll walk over fire for you
Keep my eyes on you I'm true blue
I'm true blue blue true true true blue

You used to say you’re a good girl
You used to throw me a stick or a ball
You used to rub my head and feed me treats
And I would come runnin’ whenever you called

I used to sit at the foot of your bed
I used to wait at the door for hours on end
But then you stopped taking care of me
Drove to the edge of the country

but

I've always looked up to you
So you can see that I'm true
Brought you your favorite shoes
And that's not all that I'll do
I'll walk over fire for you
Keep my eyes on you I'm true blue
I'm true blue blue true true true blue
Track Name: Eyes of the Dragon
The Eyes of the Dragon
c2014 Steven Wesley Guiles


It starts off with a hit to the face
then the bruise starts to grow
then the blood down my lips
and the crack to the bone
and i didn’t back down
cuz i knew i was right
but the jury was still out
and you had made up your minds

now you’e the one who’s in charge
and i’m the one who’s gotta go
you’re the puppet on the strings
but i won’t even see the show
cuz i’m headed to my cell
with my eyes to the ground
you were laughin’ as i left
i was silence, all around

if you think that i’m out of the game
then you don’t know me
all your hate won’t hold me down
all your bullets they won’t slow me

i’m never gonna give up
i’m never gonna break
i’m not the fool i used to be
i’ve learned from my mistakes
from the bottom of the ocean
or the high towers i will be
the eyes of the dragon
they’ll be the last thing you’ll see

by the climax i’ll be hangin’ from a thread
up so far from the ground
but i will make my escape
and you’ll be comin’ around
and i doubt that you’ve guessed
that i would make it this far
now you’re the fool i once was
and i’m the shining star
if it’s war that you want
then it’s war that you’ll get
retrace all our steps
remember proper etiquette
the last thing you’ll see
will be my face
and the eyes burning through
see you suffer in disgrace

if you think that i’m out of the game
then you don’t know me
all your hate won’t hold me down
all your bullets they won’t slow me

i’m never gonna give up
i’m never gonna break
i’m not the fool i used to be
i’ve learned from my mistakes
from the bottom of the ocean
or the high towers i will be
the eyes of the dragon
they’ll be the last thing you’ll see

i’m never gonna give up
i’m never gonna break
i’m not the fool i used to be
i’ve learned from my mistakes
from the bottom of the ocean
or the high towers i will be
the eyes of the dragon
they’ll be the last thing you’ll see
the last thing you’ll see
the last thing you’ll see
Track Name: If It's All The Same To You
If It’s All The Same To You
c2014 steven wesley guiles

Down by the sea, I played a C and I could see, all I had seen
I saw you two, but I wanted to, but talking’s too...hard to do

all the same
if it’s okay with you
i’d rather change
if i can’t well you’ll have to make do

it’s not insane
trying to what ya gotta do
if it’s not okay
we’ll i guess that you’ll have to make do
or it’s gonna be rough for you

We sailed these seas, but now who sees, can we be seized by love? oh..
They’re on our heels, will we ever heal, but I think that he’ll not let us go

It’s not your right, the words you write, but our last rites are all we’ll hear tonight
your shoes are holey, your father’s holy, and I am wholly devoted to you
