about

I want to INSPIRE you to follow your dreams. I want my life to be a living testimony that anything is possible. I want you to know people want to help you follow your dreams and we want you to succeed. I tried following my dreams secretly and I failed. When I asked for the help of others I was able to do it and am doing it today. If you need support following your dreams, people are here to support you. If you don’t need help, please follow your dreams, we will be cheering you on.

Peter Chung is a singer-songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area who is pursuing his dream to be a famous musician.

When he was growing up, Peter Chung was surrounded by music. His mother played piano, his father played guitar and both sang in the church choir. From elementary school to junior high, he was given piano lessons, and from middle school to his junior year in high school he played trumpet for the orchestra and marching band. In his sophomore year Peter also learned how to play the drums for his church. Then there was the guitar…

Peter had always liked attention and guitar was the way to get it. Playing trumpet for a large orchestra and keeping the beat behind the worship team at church was not satiating this appetite. He saw that at church the leader was the guitar player, and in most bands the guitar player was at the spotlight, not the drummer. Guitar was the way to go and Peter was determined to learn it. Whoever he considered was a good guitar player was barraged with questions about what songs to play and tips to play better. Initially, the music that Peter learned to play on guitar was an odd mix of punk/alternative rock and gospel music, until one day his classmate showed him “No Such Thing.”

John Mayer’s music inspired Peter to practice guitar more and perform in public. Many hours a day were devoted to learning John’s songs on the guitar; as much as eight hours! Due to the complex chords and difficult rhythms, Peter was challenged by each song from the “Room For Squares” album. At first playing John’s songs on guitar was hard enough but through practicing Peter learned how to sing and play at the same time. Encouraged by his friends to play at open mics around the San Jose area, he began to get the attention he desired. At first he played covers of John Mayer, Alkaline Trio, Incubus and a few others but he felt something was missing; he wanted his own songs. Inspired by high school romance and the lack of it, he began to write his own songs and perform them to everyone, everywhere.

After graduating from UC Santa Barbara and trying various jobs, Peter decided that music was going to be the main focus of his life. Pursuing a music career was always tugging at his heartstrings and the “normal life” was not making him happy. While working various jobs, Peter would perform music during the weekends, and although a few people would encourage him to pursue a career as a musician, he did not take this to heart until Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012.

The rest is currently happening!

A SONG OF SADNESS

I've been searching Searching for somebody Someone who can love me Cause I can't love myself

Lord, Ive been begging Begging for forgiveness But how can you, oh how can you When I can't forgive myself

... (x2) My only love, I lost my only love My only love, been years since my only love My only love, my only..

I've been wandering Wondering Should I have done Should I have been More of me Less of me Which side was the best of me How can I win you back How can we start again How can we start again How can we start again


BACK //

It's been a while since I last saw you 21 days to be exact Though the road is where I lay my head All of the streetlights say come back To you my love Oh my love

How many hours have I been driving So many places I've lost track Though the road is where my eyes look to My minds imagining me back With you my love Oh my love

I'm coming home (I'm on my way) I'm on my way back home

How many hours have I been driving So many places I've lost track But you don't have to hold your head my dear Cause very soon I will be back To you my love Oh my love

WHEN WE'RE COLD //||

When we're cold We can light a fire with the sparks that fly When you're hand touches mine Touches mine

Lyrics by Matt Amick


  • BACK //It’s been a while since I last saw you/ 21 days to be exact/ Though the road is where I lay my head/All of the streetlights say come back/ To you my love/ Oh my love/ How many hours have I been driving/ So many places I’ve lost track/ Though the road is where my eyes look to/ My minds imagining me back/ With you my love/ Oh my love/ I’m coming home (I’m on my way)/ I’m on my way back home/ How many hours have I been driving/ So many places I’ve lost track/ But you don’t have to hold your head my dear/ Cause very soon I will be back/ To you my love/ Oh my love

  • COMING HOME //The road goes on for days/ The clouds cry their tears of gray/ It’s getting colder the days getting dark/ But this stormy weather can’t keep me apart from you/ The music on the stereo sings “You’ve got so far to go”/ I’m on my way/ The wind whispers I’m getting close signs with city names I know/ I’m on my way/ The road goes on for miles/ And I’ve been thinking ’bout you for quite some time now/ It’s getting colder the days getting dark/ But this stormy weather can’t keep me apart from you/ The music on the stereo now sings “I wish I was homeward bound”/ I’m on my way/ The wind whispers I’m getting close familiar buildings, shops and roads/ I’m on my way/ I’m coming home

  • SAND //I tried/ I tried my best to hold on/ Hold on tight to you/ All in vain/ You slipped through my hands like a fistful of sand/ Drifting with the tides of the sea/ I’m trying to find some of my mind/ By fixing my faults from the past/ But it’s all in my head and the love that I bled/ Has shriveled and died in the cold/ You slipped through my hands like a fistful of sand/ Drifting with the tides of the sea/ You were in my hands…

  • WAITING //Waiting for someone/ Waiting for something to be done/ I’ve been waiting for a while now/ For that good love to come/ Watching the sunrise/ Watching the clouds to blue to gray/ I’ve been waiting for the wind to blow/ Good love my way/ What good’s a heart/ What good’s a heart with no one to love?/ Will I be waiting for forever/ I’ll find out soon enough/ Always analyzing/ What and when did I do wrong/ Cause I held love in my hands once/ And in a second it was gone/ What good’s a heart/ What good’s a heart with no one to love/ Will I be waiting for forever darling/ We’ll find out soon enough/ Maybe love will take a while/ Maybe love might find me soon/ Maybe waiting slows me down/ And I can change my blues to our maroons/ I’ll find my way/ I’ll find your way/ Watching the sunrise/ Watching the clouds turn blue and gray/ You’ve been waiting for too long but don’t worry/ I’m on my way

  • WE CAN GO WHEREVER WE WANT //We can go wherever we want/ Let’s go to the city/ Wander museums/ and stare at Picassos/ We can go wherever we want/ Let’s go to the country/ And hike in the valleys/ And I’ll bring the wine/ I’ve been thinking of places that we’ve never been/ And things we could do that you would enjoy/ And I’d hold you/ And you’d hold me/ We can go wherever we want/ Let’s drive to Los Angeles/ Hold hands in the car/ Find out who we are/ Let’s buy things we don’t need/ We can go wherever we want/ Let’s fly to Boston/ Let’s get lost in the subways and snow/ I’ve been thinking of places that we’ve never been/ And things we could do that you would enjoy/ And I’d hold you/ And you’d hold me/ I’ve been thinking of places that we’ve never been/ And things we could do and how I could kiss you/ And hold you/ And you’d hold me/ We can go wherever we want/ But you say let’s stay here/ Baby just lay here/ We’ll stay here/ My love

  • COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS //The thought of you/ Just the thought of you/ Now the winter’s not so cold/ I’m counting down the days/ / ’til my love comes home/ When I hear your voice/ I feel your voice/ Vibrating through my soul/ I’m counting down the days/ ’til my love comes home

  • FOREVER MEANS FOREVER //I love you so much/ I’ll love you forever/ I mean forever/ I love you so much/ I’ll kiss you forever/ I’ll hold you forever/ When our hearts grow tired/ I’ll be sure to sing you this song/ When we lose control/ I’ll give in/ I’ll be wrong/ Cause forever means forever/ I love you so much/ I’ll be yours forever/ I am yours forever/ When our hearts grow tired/ I’ll be sure to sing you this song/ When we lose control/ I’ll give in/ I’ll be wrong/ Cause forever means forever/ Forever means forever

  • HESITATION //The thought of you/ Just the thought of you/ Now the winter’s not so cold/ I’m counting down the days/ ’til my love comes home/ When I hear your voice/ I feel your voice/ Vibrating through my soul/ I’m counting down the days/ ’til my love comes home/ And I’ll sing Ooh come home/ What does this hesitation mean/ If I try harder I’ll make scene/ But when the prize is worth the risk/ I’ll take a chance and go for it/ What are her eyes telling me/ If I look harder I might blink/ But when her lips are worth my wait/ I can’t I won’t hesitate/ She’s so beautifully dressed/ My stomach’s in a mess/ Can I pull this off/ Pull of these butterflies/ What does this conversation mean/ If I keep quiet she might think/ I’m just here to waste her time/ But I’m just lost in her eyes/ She’s so beautifully dressed/ My stomach’s in a mess/ Can I pull this off/ Pull of these butterflies/ My hands in my pockets/ My eyes on the table/ She wants me she wants me/ I know I am capable/ Eyes switch to dress/ Down to shoes down to floor/ She wants me she wants me/ But I want her more/ What does this conversation mean/ If I keep quiet she might think/ That I’m just here to waste her time/ But I’m just lost in her eyes
