about

Jared Gafford Grand Rapids, Michigan

My name is Jared Gafford and I'm a 26 year old singer/songwriter. I love music and I love performing. I have had the privilege of sharing the stage with national acts such as Secondhand Serenade and The Dangerous Summer, along with bigger named indie artists such as The Icarus Account, Time & Distance, and Holiday Parade. My goal when writing music is to keep it real and keep it personal. The End. ... more

Track Name: Turn Around (Feat. Erin Lancaster)
Verse:
Watch me die a little/Each and every day
Everything is changing, but I don't wanna stay
Place me on a pedistal/Sink in higher ground
Every piece of me is losing touch with the sound
Damn my soul to hell/For the things that I've done
Could you ever forgive your misguided son
Is it even possible/After all we've been through
I'm searching but I can't find my way back to you

Pre-Chorus:
So I'll take a deep breath
And I'll let it out
I'll gather my thoughts and
Turn around

Chorus:
Turn around/Turn around
Please, pretty please
Don't walk away, walk away
Tell me I'll be okay

Verse:
The sun begins to rain/the moon is laid to rest
My heart is resigning from inside my chest
I am a slave to apathy/All passion eludes
I'm doing all I can but I just cannot get through

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
I take one step forward/Take two steps back
I miss the way, I used to laugh at myself
Over the stupidest things
I wanna get back to where I used to be
When I wasn't so scared to be anything but me
Oh my God, please help me to

Chorus:
Turn around/Turn around
Turn around/Turn around
Now I can see that
You're all I need, all I need
I know I'll be okay

Music Break

Outro:
The moment, I thought that I felt you closest
You started falling out of focus
I'm broken, with so many words unspoken
What is stopping me from growing
You promised, you'd never leave you promised
When I am weak, you're at your strongest
Collapsing, onto my knees and grasping
Onto hope that you are everlasting
