This song is an ode to my wonderful wife, who's love and encouragement keeps me going all the time.

I wrote this song after seeing Theo Katzman for the first time at a "Take a Chance Tuesday" at The Ark in Ann Arbor. Pretty much a life altering and certainly a music altering event. Dude is a musical baller. If you don't know his music, you're depriving your ears and soul. Here's to the God Juice.


Those uptown women make you lose control
Ain't got no rhythm, but they sure got soul
I got a good one, but she wants it right
Can't be the captain if the ship ain't tight

I've been steady for you, now I'm ready for you
We can leave it all behind

Love ain't nothing, I've found, but having your feet never touch the ground
You give me something that's real, I can't wrap my heart around

I've been learning the hard way, but your love has taught me to begin
Where I'm going's not so far away, when I take a look at where I've been
And I'm done learning the hard way

She said, "Stop, one minute! Are you outta your mind?
You living life or you just doing time?
I said, "Is that your opinion, is that a matter of fact?"
These day to days have got me on the wrong track

Well, I've been steady for you, now I'm ready for you
We can take the world tonight

Just one step at a time is not enough when you're so far behind
Oh, you give me something that's real, can't wrap my heart around

And it's a lonely road
When you're making it on your own
But I know that every time
Your love is there right beside me

Adam Plomaritas Ypsilanti, Michigan

His latest release, "The Hard Way", was named #3 album of the year by Ann Arbor Radio's John Bommarito.

Adam Plomaritas presents an onslaught of tight, satisfying rock 'n roll, tastefully
seasoned with soul and blues. You might say that Mariah Carey, Michael McDonald,
and Stevie Wonder all got eaten by a Telecaster-toting grizzly.
