about

In his sophomore album, “Better Than Yesterday,” Hertz continues where he left off almost two years ago, this time capturing the inevitable ups and downs of life. The pure acoustic sound, soothing lead vocals, and signature auto-tuned background chorus create a pleasantly blended mix of emotional depth and catchy melodies. A couple of special treats on this album include a Wurlitzer sounding soul lick heard throughout “The World Keeps On Dancing,” and Andrew Bird like whistling on what is sure to be a fan favorite, “We Need Love.”

Track Name: So High, So Low
Look at me right now
No one here to break my fall
What went wrong
I was so high, now I’m so, so low

My heartbeat is still
From all this pain that I feel
Take me where I should go
I was so high, now I’m so, so low

I was so high, now I’m so, so low
Track Name: Soon Enough
Sailing into the wind it’s my last go
Hear your whisper near the shore
Saving me from my s.o.s. oh,
With all your beauty, grace and charm

Wait for me I promise you it won’t be long
I’ll sail around the world before you’re gone
Take my word and know that it won’t do you wrong
Soon enough I’ll be home

I told you once my dream was waiting
And I had to go far away
Wish I’d known what I was saying
Drew my sail and I was sunk

Wait for me I promise you it won’t be long
I’ll sail around the world before you’re gone
Take my word and know that it won’t do you wrong
Soon enough I’ll be home

Look at me I’m a mess now
I’ll admit I was wrong
Pray to God you didn’t let go
My dream was here all along

Wait for me I promise you it won’t be long
I’ll sail around the world before you’re gone
Take my word and know that it won’t do you wrong
Soon enough I’ll be home

Wait for me I promise you it won’t be long
I’ll sail around the world before you’re gone
Take my word and know that it won’t do you wrong
Soon enough I’ll be home

Soon enough I’ll be home
Track Name: We Need Love
I wanna give all my love to you
But how can you expect me to
When people are lonely and people are sad
I just don’t think that I can do that

We need love, love
We need love, love
Love

I woke up it’s early in the morning
The sun is shinning so bright
Look out my half open window
And I can tell that something isn’t right

It’s like a cold winter breeze
Makes me buckle at my knees
And on the inside it makes me feel so numb
I think it’s love

We need love, love
We need love, love
Love

When I hold your hand it feels so right
In a world that’s gone so wrong
There’s one thing left that we’ve still got
To turn this place around

It’s like a cold winter breeze
Makes me buckle at my knees
And on the inside it makes me feel so numb
I think it’s love

We need love, love
We need love, love
Love

I’m gonna give all my love to you
There’s just one thing you have to do
You gotta make someone happy get someone to laugh
I know how good you are at that

We need love, love
We need love, love
Love

We need love, love
We need love, love
Love
Track Name: Wish Upon A Star
Wish upon a star wherever you are
Anywhere I go it’s never too far

Hey girl, where you been
Wanna see your beautiful face again
Just the way you smile

Make me wild, makes me dream
Gives me hope, makes it seem
Like everything in-between

Doesn’t mean as much when you’re not here
Wishing you were always near
All you have to do is

Wish upon a star wherever you are
Anywhere I go it’s never too far

Kiss your toes to your nose
Thousand roses wouldn’t be enough to say
How wonderful you look today

Hear you laugh, hear you cry
Hold you in my arms tonight
The way you are

It’s amazing don’t ever forget
You’re amazing

Hold on you’ve got your whole life to live
Stay strong cause you’re as perfect as it gets
Just know anytime you want

Wish upon a star wherever you are
Anywhere I go it’s never to far
Track Name: When I Needed You The Most
Try to hold my head up high
But it always seems to fall
I can’t quite understand
The reason for it all

If it turns out I was right
I just end up being wrong
Seems like this fight
Just goes on and on

When I needed you the most
You were nowhere to be found
When my heart was broke
You were gone, gone, gone

Opened up my eyes
And you had disappeared
Left me with my thoughts
After all these years

This pain in my chest
I feel it every day
Some thing in life
You get used to in a way

I tackle on my shirt
Put on my shoes
Figure what the hell
I’ve got nothing more to lose

When I needed you the most
You were nowhere to be found
When my heart was broke
You were gone, gone, gone

Opened up my eyes
And you had disappeared
Left me with my thoughts
After all these years

Seems like it’s the end
Where to go from here
Sinking to the bottom
Drowning in my fear

And I take another breathe
One by one is fine
Use all my strength
To hold my head again up high

When I needed you the most
You were nowhere to be found
When my heart was broke
You were gone, gone, gone

Opened up my eyes
And you had disappeared
Left me with my thoughts
After all these years
Track Name: The World Keeps On Dancing
Your whole life flashes before your bloodshot eyes
12:05 if the bottle is king we’ll be alright

Take one more, guess you shouldn’t of done that
Hit the floor, but it’s just like you said
Who am I to say, the red and blue are on their way
Hold your hand, feeling your heart stop
Is this your plan, I surely hope not
Check for pulse again, the world keeps on dancing

Search your mind faster now you’re running out of time
It’s a two-way street, one way leads to broken dreams

Take one more, guess you shouldn’t of done that
Hit the floor, but it’s just like you said
Who am I to say, the red and blue are on their way
Hold your hand, feeling your heart stop
Is this your plan, I surely hope not
Check for pulse again, the world keeps on dancing

And all your troubles gone
All mine are found
‘Cause in this world you know
When one thing’s lost another one comes

See the lights reflecting off the pavement
Sick and tired of seeing you headed down this way again
Your face stuck to the ground
Sky is spinning, world turned upside
Down on your luck down on your knees
Begging for someone anyone please
Help me up again, and I swear this will be the end

Take one more, guess you shouldn’t of done that
Hit the floor, but it’s just like you said
Who am I to say, the red and blue are on their way
Hold your hand, feeling your heart stop
Is this your plan, I surely hope not
Check for pulse again, the world keeps on dancing

And all your troubles gone
All mine are found
‘Cause in this world you know
When one thing’s lost another one comes

Take one more, guess you shouldn’t of done that
Hit the floor, but it’s just like you said
Who am I to say, the red and blue are on their way
Hold your hand, feeling your heart stop
Is this your plan, I surely hope not
Check for pulse again, the world keeps on dancing

And the world keeps on dancing, alright
And the world keeps on dancing, oh oh okay
And the world keeps on dancing
Track Name: Time
Pack my bags I’m headed west
Got one thing on my mind
Can’t say that I don’t regret
Leaving you behind

They say that destiny will wait
I’m not sure it’s true
Gets easy to lose my faith
When here I am leaving you

Time, there’s always time
On my mind
We ran out of time

Somewhere many miles away
I guess that’s where I’ll be
Never did grow too found of change
Maybe that’s just me

They say only time will tell
I’m not sure it’s true
What’s next I know too well
‘Cause here I am leaving you

Time, there’s always time
On my mind
We ran out of time

Slow you’re world down
And let me go
All that I want
Is for you to know that

Time, there’s always time
On my mind
We ran out of time
There’s always time
On my mind
Track Name: Cartoon Dinosaurs
Take my hand come with me
Close your eyes and you will see
We’re going somewhere beautiful
In our minds is where we’ll be

I see planes and you see cars
Rocket ships that land on mars
We’re going somewhere beautiful
In our minds is where we’ll be

Water’s clear the grass is green
Take a breath the airs so clean
We’re going somewhere beautiful
In our minds is where we’ll be

Cartoon dinosaurs are chasing us all day
We fend them off with swords made of papier-mâché
The sun is smiling down on us
The birds are singing just because
So we all decide to sing along
