about

Tim Kelley Douglasville, Georgia

Harmonies abound, transitions shift, and genres blend in Tim Kelley’s music. Behind the notes you’ll find the idealism that music can save your soul; that every experience is worth keeping, however painful, that redemption lies just somewhere around the corner, that age is a four letter word and fear is not worth the letters that make it up. ... more

Track Name: This is not about you
People come and people go
just thought I'd let you know
they will let you down

Not something on the news
just thought I'd speak the truth
while I get up off the ground

If I tell you a secret, will you keep it between you and who you tell?


Only bottles in the can
tomorrow's just today
without a plan

What is said and what is heard
the breath's not worth the words
will you find me there?

If I tell you a secret, will you keep it between you and who you tell?
Track Name: Last Call
No, don't say goodnight
what's on your mind?
I'll find the time

He never set you down
On solid ground
and you never found, you

Don't lie to yourself
and hide from yourself
and you will find
that you are the one
that gets through the day
when everyone else is gone.
Track Name: Dead Words
Show me the way to forgive you
I hear your noise
find me an open truth within you
and shine on the singing voice

Wasted is the time and here we are your mind, oh you're so right
words like a song to the deaf
you read what you hear
and shine on the singing voice.

Your thoughts like rain, they fall on dead words.
( Did you ever stop to listen to a voice outside your mind? )
( Have you ever heard a word from a person that changed your mind? )
Track Name: Older & Wiser?
she's the sole survivor of the lover that I used to be.
back behind the shed you'll find innocence and chalk.

she said "let's hold hands"
our lips like clouds
she left, with her family, for the city in the sky
no, don't go...obla di obla da

I'm the sole survivor of another day gone by
now we're older and wiser.

I went back to see the shed again
with the trees bare and the shed not there
but the secrets flowed with the breeze
and I could still see our names in the tree

now we're older and wiser?
Track Name: I thought I
I thought I
Never again will it pain me to know you
I thought I
Heaven in mind and I still can't relive you

I've welcomed down to remind me that it can get worse
What part of me did you give to fill with something unreal?
Well here's the deal, well I've been here before
and I found this time is wasted so save your breath
because I hear about me, yes I hear about me
won't sweet indecision come and take my hand

You don't know me, you knew me when

Never again will it pain me to know you
Heaven in mind and still I can't relive you

I thought I
Track Name: Yet another acquaintance
It's here again, this fear of time
we're gone again as the eyes imply
and it's ok to hide for a day
to simplify this thing we call life

should have written it down
even then I liked the sound
put an ear to the ground.

Like a brown dog on fallen leaves, it's hard to see
leaving this place of acuity
and the dreams stay asleep
all dressed up and no place to be

I don't need you.
Track Name: Fall's Fallen
It's cold, the leaves are unfair
a day waits to call you, might not be there
and still there's a smile in this
we found it somewhere
we never returned here and still we don't care

Oh how the sun hurts
at night it still burns
The stars are the only light
that won't burn out tonight

My father died, my mother cried,
she lives alone, a friend of mine
lost his mind, lost his home
I became sorry that it took so long
to find myself and see myself as they all did all along.
Outside it's cold, the leaves are unfair
a day waits to call you, might not be there
(We played until the sun fell
the world was a small place but we couldn't tell
our dreams became coffee pots and memories oh well...)
we only returned here when one of us fell.

Oh how the sun hurts
at night it still burns
The stars are the only light
that won't burn out tonight
Track Name: My Pillow
there's a drip at the faucet to ease your mind
just something to bide the time, my son
a slam at the door, the drip once more
this time your mind wants to hide, my son
beer, booze and cigarette smoke
A fist swung in vain, a grab that chokes, my son
a push to the floor while pulling hair
hold your pillow tight and pretend that you're not there
my son.

I hate you, sorry. why? Why?

under the covers, it must be a dream
a crash, smack, a kick, then a scream my son.
built up rage, not yet a man
nothing you can do but dream that you can, my son
beer, booze and cigarette smoke
a fist swung in vain, a grab that chokes, my son
a push to the floor while pulling hair
hold your pillow tight and pretend that you're not there
my son.

I hate you, sorry. why? Why?
( I'm still here, it's ok )

I hate you, sorry. why?
( Don't worry, I'm alright )

Why? Doesn't mommy, have a pillow?
Track Name: Summertime (George Gershwin)
summertime and the livin' is easy
fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
oh your daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'
so hush little baby, don't cry

one of these mornings
(one of these mornin's one of these mornin's gonna rise up singin'
gonna rise up singin' momma, swinging momma)
your gonna rise up singing
then you'll spread your wings
and take to the sky.

but till that moment,
there's a nothin' can harm you
with daddy and mommy standin' by.
Track Name: An Introspective Moment
Not where I thought I'd be at 33
Some find a twisted mind will say the things we cannot hide and I close the blinds

Sorry for the lack of words today
( the sun's in her eyes )
I've got a song in my head and nothing to say
( what a big surprise )
What a big surprise

That she left him standing there with a foolish heart
She left him with his mouth too dry to say it again

Every rainy day clears and tomorrow will remind us of our fears

Sorry for the things that I say
( You're in your way )
You're the one, the blame is on its way
( It's all in your mind )
What a big surprise

That she left him standing there with a foolish heart
She left him with his mouth too dry to say it again
Track Name: A new beginning
These are the days
These are the times
