about

Recorded in Austin, Texas in August 2010.

This album has been completely (and proudly!) self-financed. There's a suggested price, but if you feel like paying a bit more... you will help me producing more music!

If you do like what you hear, please consider writing a short review for it on your social media, or simply sharing a link to it with your friends.

Thank you for listening.

Track Name: What is it?
This track is instrumental.
Track Name: Outside
We ran outside
stepping into a pool of darkness
lit by a million stars.

A promise from our heart
sealed by our whispering kisses
burning waves of love.

Time won’t crush this memory
of being together that night
of the sea under the stars
whispering a lullaby for you.

We ran outside
and the sweetness of that moment remains.

Track Name: Jamaica Junction (Two Women Fighting)
Two women fighting things will get ugly now
The whole couch is looking waiting for the showdown
“Your hair looks like straw!”
“You’re nothing but a cow!”
Oh, boy, the heat is on!
Two women fighting, scary and angry
heading downtown New York.

Two women fighting, two tigers on the prowl
hissing and shouting, whetting their varnished claws
“You’re worth nothing in bed!”
“You sleep around instead!”
Oh, boy the heat is on!
Two women fighting, abusive and loud
as the train is speeding on.

I put my headphones back on
this scene has worn me down.
The vulgar remarks,
the cheapness, the sadness,
the drama over the top.
This is much worse than reality shows
I ain’t watching this no more.

Track Name: Valentine
What I feel when you’re near
I will never reveal:
words sometimes misfire even though they’re sincere.
Instead I shall show to you,
my sweetest valentine.
I’ll try and make you proud of being with me
and just as loved as you make me feel.

You are like the bright sun
shining warm in the spring
waking me from slumber
to bring joy and relief:
how could I not love you then?
Come closer I’ll be your man
until my heart beats
I will sing my song to you.

For you’re cute and you’re fun
and you’re all that I need
I’ll give you my love
I’ll be true believe me
this romance will last for years
my sweetest valentine
and still it’ll be unique just like you
just like the way I feel when you’re near.
