Rise & Shine 04:10
Rise and shine Wipe the sleep out of your eyes Seize the day Don’t let your dreams all fade away Rise and shine Get up and see what you can find Catch the sun Arise and see your new day dawn Well I know you’ll build a rocket boys I hope I get to see you fly If I ever show you anything I hope I see you Rise and Shine Rise and shine Get what is yours and I’ll get mine Take your time Try and color outside of the lines Rise and shine All along the way of your climb Shine your light And all that’s yours will be all right Life is what you make of it You gotta give it all you’ve got Let it get the best of you It’s coming for you so liftoff Well I know you’ll build a rocket boys I hope I get to see you fly If I ever show you anything I hope I see you Rise and Shine

You will rise up from your ashes But you're gunna have to let yourself burn Wipe the tears away from your lashes Reached the point of no return From the flames you'll face your freedom From the cage you'll cast aside And If your broken heart's still beatin' Spread your wings now and learn to fly Cause you're a Phoenix and you're rising Come on and show 'em how you fly Into a brand new sun that's shining From the darkest soul of night Cause you're a Phoenix and you're rising Come on and show 'em how you fly You're a Phoenix And now's the time to rise A spark flys down from the heavens To ignite a brand new day For the misfits and the broken That were left out in the rain To the tired and the weary Even though the night is long The horizon's storm is clearing Sing until the break of dawn Cause you're a Phoenix and you're rising Come on and show 'em how you fly Into a brand new sun that's shining From the darkest soul of night Cause you're a Phoenix and you're rising Come on and show 'em how you fly You're a Phoenix And now's the time to rise

Boxes 04:37
They put themselves into boxes They go to work and they check off their boxes They come home to their nice and warm boxes They place their children in their own little boxes Kids to school and make friends with their boxes They sit them down they learn at their boxes Tell what they can and can’t put in their boxes So they can fit within their own little boxes They buy & keep their possessions in boxes They ship their boxes across the country in boxes They fall asleep in their safe and sound boxes They put their love and their dreams into boxes D’ya think they know that nothing that’s alive should grow in boxes? It won’t belong and they’ll wonder where it went when it’s gone til they unbox it The eat their food from their take Togo boxes They keep their memories in their photo boxes They watch each other on their tv boxes Talk to each other with their streaming boxes They hide their dirt & their secrets in boxes They put their own limitations in boxes They count their days down on their boxes Bury each other in the ground in their boxes D’ya think they know that nothing that’s alive should grow in boxes? It won’t belong and they’ll wonder where it went when it’s gone til they unbox it

Wonderwall 04:42
Today is gonna be the day That they're gonna throw it back to you By now you should've somehow Realized what you gotta do I don't believe that anybody Feels the way I do about you now Backbeat, the word is on the street That the fire in your heart is out I'm sure you've heard it all before But you never really had a doubt I don't believe that anybody feels The way I do about you now And all the roads we have to walk are winding And all the lights that lead us there are blinding There are many things that I would Like to say to you But I don't know how Because maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me And after all You're my wonderwall Today was gonna be the day But they'll never throw it back to you By now you should've somehow Realized what you're not to do I don't believe that anybody Feels the way I do About you now And all the roads that lead you there were winding And all the lights that light the way are blinding There are many things that I would like to say to you But I don't know how I said maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me And after all You're my wonderwall I said maybe (I said maybe) You're gonna be the one that saves me And after all You're my wonderwall I said maybe (I said maybe) You're gonna be the one that saves me (saves me) You're gonna be the one that saves me (saves me) You're gonna be the one that saves me (saves me)

I was born a carpenter's son West Detroit is where I come from Made my way to Tennessee That's probably where they'll bury me A Yankee mixed with Southern Charm John Lennon tattooed on my arm Got a blue balloon to carry me And sons that shine so brilliantly A Dreamer with my head up in the clouds Keep my feet firm on this sacred ground And I remember where I came from I was born a carpenter's son My Father's feet forged the way And that's the path that I strive to take Got an angel for a sister too She shines as bright as diamonds do Wanna leave this world more beautiful Some might say I'm unusual But I know I'm not the only one Cause I was born a carpenter's son A Dreamer with my head up in the clouds Keep my feet firm on this sacred ground And I remember where I came from I was born a carpenter's son

Close your eyes, Have no fear, The monster's gone, He's on the run And your daddy's here, [2x] Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful boy, Before you go to sleep, Say a little prayer, Every day In every way, It's getting better and better, [2x] Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful boy, Out on the ocean sailing away, I can hardly wait To see you to come of age, But I guess we'll both Just have to be patient, 'Cause it's a long way to go, A hard row to hoe Yes, it's a long way to go But in the meantime, Before you cross the street, Take my hand, Life is what happens to you, While you're busy making other plans, [2x] Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful boy, Before you go to sleep, Say a little prayer, Every day In every way, It's getting better and better, [2x] Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful boy, Darling, darling, Darling, darling boys.

Centralia 03:46
Climbing on the swing set Hanging from our knees Trying to stop the sunsets Come and go just as we pleased Nintendo in your basement Trying to play your Dad's guitar Did you ever think we'd make it? Did ya think we'd go so far? Mama Mia my Centralia Well I won't ever fail ya You're the first true friend this boy had ever known And I promise you Centralia Though life's no fairytale Ya mean more to me than you will ever know Waiting at the bus stop Singing "So Sally can wait" Ice cream hands and lollipops Your memories are figure eights Oreos and white tic-tacs And the dog circles your house What I wouldn't give to go back But I'm so glad we made it out Mama Mia my Centralia Well I won't ever fail ya You're the first true friend this boy had ever known And I promise you Centralia Though life's no fairytale Ya mean more to me than you will ever know

Lullaby 02:24
May your eyes be filled with wonder May your heart be filled with love May your days be full of laughter And with all you're dreaming of May the sun keep all your skies blue May the clouds all pass you by May the moon smile down on you With stars that sing you lullabies May your blessings be divine May your wishes all come true May the doubt never cross your mind Of just how proud I am of you May you find yourself some peace May the load you bear be light May you send a kiss from me When you kiss your Mom goodnight May the good lord shine upon you May you lend a helping hand May all that I'm meant to teach you Someday help you understand May you run with your ideas May you follow all your dreams May you borrow all the pieces That make up the best of me

about

“Most people took up hobbies when the pandemic hit, knitting, bread making, etc. But Ryan Oyer made an entire album on his damn cell phone.”
-Butch Ross

A generational and relatable storytelling album filled with enthusiastic sentiments of love. Performing songs with his sons and his father demonstrates perfectly the beauty of his message.
A melodic inspiring journey of Fatherhood. His daily adventures of teaching, learning and growing together, exploring and creating together. With groovy feel good original music staying true to his Brit-Pop musical influences; Ryan created melodies you can’t help to hum for days while smiling.
Rise & Shine is the first track and single of the titled album. This song has a positive and uplifting feel. (I set it as my alarm tone. It’s a very pleasant awakening)
Chattz Coffee partnered with Ryan to release their blend of Rise & Shine coffee to coincide with the record release party and Chattanooga Brewing Co. is creating a coffee stout too!
I’m telling you Rise & Shine is now a whole new vibe.
As you keep listening and experiencing what could have been titled “A Day in the Life” of Ryan Oyer, you are greeted with “Carpenter’s Son”.
In this song Ryan expresses who he is as an individual in his beautifully told story.
Ryan has a captivating way of taking you on a journey through hours in a day to a chapter of life with the layout of his tracks.
-Christy Coppit

about

Ryan Oyer Chattanooga, Tennessee

The work of singer-songwriter Ryan Oyer is intrinsically tied to personal experience and emotional connection. Universal sentiment and intimate insight are irrevocably intertwined within a landscape of folk-rock rurality and indie rock tenacity. He conjures comfortable evenings & loses himself within the lulling ease of front porch singalongs. -Joshua Pickard "The Southern Sounding" ... more
