about

Donnie Schexnayder Colorado Springs, Colorado

I'm Donnie Schexnayder (pronounced "Shecks-nigh-der") and I'm a music artist from Colorado Springs, CO. I play 80's and 90's- inspired indie rock that sounds kind of like Foo Fighters meets Oasis with Eddie Van Halen on guitar. I write songs that inspire and motivate people to share their inner magic, and I want to make a positive dent in this world with my music. ... more

Track Name: Time
Somebody said it was easy
But nobody told me to watch my back
It feels like I'm out of control
Just like a train running off the track

In the time it takes to close your eyes
Everything is changing in my life
In the time it takes to close your eyes
You might find that your life just passed you by

A fire is on the horizon
Around me the sky, as it fades to black
Lost in the heat of the moment
It's gone and there's no way to get it back

In the time it takes to close your eyes
Everything is changing in my life
In the time it takes to close your eyes
You might find that your life just passed you by

Frustration cuts me like a knife
I need a moment with my life
I need to find some peace of mind
I just wish I had

The time it takes to change my mind
'Cause everything is changing in my life
In the time it takes to close your eyes
You might find that your life just passed you by
Track Name: Let Me In
What would it take to make you listen
Should I pull a star from the sky for you
Or hold you close without permission
Maybe then all my dreams would come true

Even now as I whisper your name
I can see the answer's still the same

Another streaming tear
Another wasted year
If you would let me in
I'd show you how to live
How to live

What can I do to get a mention
What if I suffered in your place
Would bearing a cross get your attention
Maybe then I could feel your embrace

Even now as I whisper your name
I can see the answer's still the same

There's more to life than what you see
Have some faith in me
Believe, believe in me

No more streaming tears
No more wasted years
It's time to live your life
Just lay your fears aside

No need to be afraid
Of what your past has made
Your stars are shining bright
It's gonna be alright
