Goddess Awaits- This album is the first one that I feel comes directly from my heart to the page. I am more proud of this than anything. It is such a feeling of accomplishment when you can create a vision, work through all the struggles and obstacles then see the actual results. On my last album, I had worked out who I was as an artist. On this album, I can tell my story: My love story. Finding and knowing my amazing man 'In Your Arms' Finding my own path-getting rid of my co-dependence 'Touching Down' Seeing into the Future 'Superelectrifical' The story of my friends and loved ones in the military 'Come Back Home' Being a misfit in Junior High and High School...and today 'Misunderstood and Proud' My Superstitious nature and interest in Fate 'Nobody Knows' Meeting, helping, and knowing AIDS survivors in Northern China 'Tell Me Your Story' The painful loss of what could have been the first female leader of the free world 'Commander in Chief' My friends on-line dating stories 'Virtual Romance' My devotion to Miss Alicia Keys 'Something's Missing' The anthem song that is the purpose of my music 'GODDESS' In Your Arms From my heart. To my love. I love you. You are the most beautiful soul put on this earth. I am so blessed to be with you and loved by you. In Your Arms I'm from a small town with one traffic light it's called Marlborough Your from a big town from across the world you've been everywhere Pre Chorus you never made me feel small for barely seeing the world at all you never made me feel bad for the simple life that I've had Chorus I love to wrap up in your arms and leave the world behind you always keep me safe from harm where ever we are I was an average girl who went to music school and you were so smart and went to medical school and you learned four languages Pre Chorus Chorus Chorus Bridge Oh, we can see the world together I can't wait to It's ok if it takes forever I can't wait to Chorus Chorus Touching Down I wrote these lyrics a long time ago. It was a bad time. I had become Miss #1 Codependent. Wearing the sash and banner and following the leader. In this case, my leader didn't care about me, didn't want the best for me, and edited my every move. Strangulation would have been more freeing. I dreamed about flying off 'leaving my whole life behind' and becoming a brand new powerful, independent girl. I did end up breaking away from my leader, burning my Miss #1 Codependent sash and starting fresh, all without leaving my life behind. "That which doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger." Touching Down I'm leaving you again there's a chance I'm not coming home It's weird but I'm so free Pre-Chorus of my loneliness I'm not scared of you anymore Chorus Touching down leaving all my life behind taking off and let it all fall away I'm sorry what I said never thought it would end this way couldn't take much more of this Pre Chorus Chorus Chorus Bridge Thinking we could work it out sometimes but we tried so hard so much better off now Tell Me Your Story I wrote this song on the train coming back from Northeast China. The lyrics are an exact description of my meeting a group of spectacular kids outside their one room school house in a small village in Northern China. The Chi Heng foundation is so wonderful, helping these kids, telling their story and getting the anti-retroviral medications they so desperately need. I was so glad to be able to help out, meet this village and now tell their story. When I was in the studio, I printed out this picture of these kids to keep the memory as I sang the lyrics, to bring their souls into the studio, and to translate their story more personally. Here are a few photos from that day. Tell Me Your Story In a one room school house down an endless dirt road past the cities and towns and the rows of tiny homes and the drive in the van down the dusty bumpy path and a road that leads to new friends and the one room school house all 6, 7 and 8 years old their faces fresh with their hopeful eyes Chorus Tell me your story bare feet and open heart tell me your story I can see you've been hiding your hurt tell me your story it's in your eyes They sing a song of welcome with pride and strength and they're line so perfectly row by row and the ones in front are impacted by AIDS lost their parents or friends or infected as well but their smile seems as bright as the ones just behind they've been hiding their hurt from the whole world Pre Chorus Chorus This is the village that time forgot this is the village the world forgot it's in their eyes Chorus Chorus Superelectrifical All growing up my parents had a subscription to Scientific American. I read it once in a while. I found once I graduated BU, that I too had to have a subscription to Scientific American. It was, and is, an amazing magazine. Amazing because it is printing the latest and greatest finds of our scientific world. One month, maybe 3 years ago now, had the latest research on space and time. The scientific world had proven without a doubt that time as we understand it...does not exist. What? Does not exist. At the subatomic level, we are floating in and out of dimensions. There are many dimensions that have been proven and we are existing consciously in only one of them. String theory-as I understand it. I read and re-read that month trying to wrap my head around this latest research. How could they just print something so easily that turned my world upside down. This was mind blowing. Still today, I can't get it. What am I supposed to do with this latest research? How can you go on 'being' happily if time doesn't exist? It was reassuring in a twisted way because I felt that this was the most scientific explanation of God that I could see. No time+infinite space=higher being with a grand plan. I felt that if I went forward in time...say maybe 1000 years, Scientific American...and all people would have this little fact figured out and we would be adapting to this new truth. What would that look like? Well, if time doesn't exist then time travel is no issue, and the engineering of space travel would be sorted out. So, we could fly to other galaxies. And if space travel is no issue, then the laws of gravity on this tiny earth could be worked around, and we could just float anywhere we were thinking of. So, me and my two sisters were sitting by the fire at my parents house in New Hampshire when this blast of light took us to this future. It's a dream. But, It's real. This is real science. Superelectrifical Once upon a time in a place nearby there were three girls by the fire when a blast of light flashed through the night and changed our lives forever in the blink of an eye 1000 years go by and we just can't believe it Pre Chorus it's magical and mystical and superlectrifical flying cars and travel to the stars Chorus is it all real I think that I'm dreaming all around me i got this feeling is it all real or just make believe I can't believe I'm here Body and soul in an altered state and it felt just like nirvana everyone around wasn't on the ground I looked down and I was floating Flying high in the sky to a distant land Pre Chorus Chorus Chorus Bridge Time, Space they don't exist Life is not as it appears it feels right to float in and out through stars and sky with a flash of light Chorus Chorus Come Back Home War. It doesn't seem to me that in the 21st century we would still find it understandable and necessary to kill people to solve our problems. It seems like this should have been figured out a long time ago. I would think that evolution should have taken that one out of the equation. The dark ages, the World Wars, the atom bomb- should have shown the complete purposelessness of that resolution. This song was written about specific people, who out of respect I won't name personally. But, this war has been personal to me- and to so many families in the US. We love you and need you here. Come back home. Come Back Home She served two terms in Afghanistan up in and out of those hills She doesn't talk about it much she lost her best friend on that day She had a thirst for adventure and always a strong sense of pride she has a vision for this world and just wanted to do her part Pre Chorus I know it's complicated but she's right here with me Chorus She's just one of us trying to do what's right he's just one of us we're just part of this fight I don't know what's wrong or what's right with war but, I'm praying for you to come home you made your momma proud and we need you and love you here Come back home, please come back home He left right out of high school he was a career man a soccer star and he was funny as hell always a leader as well He's tough from afar but, he's got a big teddy bear heart he's not the same man that I once knew I can see the hurt in his eyes Pre-Chorus Chorus Bridge They don't judge the why's or how's they are seeing it through to the end Their hearts and minds are powerful with single minded strength Chorus Chorus Misunderstood and Proud I spent a lot of time on my own not so many kids wanted to be around me mighta thought I was goofy always were laughing at me Misjudging my outside Call me crazy, call me quirky, call me strange, call me anything i'm not who you think i am call me lazy, call me shady call me weird call me anything just cuz you know me don't pretend you understand Misunderstood and Proud My insides don't match my out but you keep on judging me keep on keep on misunderstood and Proud my insides don't match my out i take the hard road i'll do it my way Move on, move on Life has a funny way of catching up with me now all the boys they wanted to get with me mighta thought i was easy mighta thought that they knew me now the world they misjuge me just because of my outsides why you judging me doesn't matter to me anyway i'm taking one day at a time and I'm laughing out loud I'm no different than you don't mind going alone cuz I'm so misunderstood and proud Nobody Knows I have to admit something. I'm superstitious. I love the psychisc, I love tarot card readings. I think astrologists are on to something...numerology, palm reading...all of it. That being said, I don't over indulge in my fix. I'm particular about who I talk to, and I don't always believe what I hear. I got into numerology from the Chinese. Every single show I have in China has to be aligned with the stars. They set the schedule according to the most auspicious day. They are very specific about it. My first show was re-scheduled at the last minute- costing me 500 dollars and a replaced bassist because the stars weren't aligned for the day that was originally set for the show. After that I thought there must be something to this, if high powered executives, hotel owners, publicists and event coordinators all had to have the show on a day the stars were aligned. I believe in fate and destiny. But, I also believe in the power of choice. How do these two entities exist together, though? If everything is pre-determined, what place does my choice have? Can I change my destiny? I was in Pakistan at a photo shoot with a friend's friend who was an accomplished palm reader. He was reading one of his co-workers destiny stating that she would 'lose an eye' An eye! Can she change her destiny? Can I change mine? I have heard that you can, but everything any astrologer ever told me will happen-has happened. Nobody Knows It's hard to know what's gonna happen next we can make a guess or try to influence but it's hard to know where it all will go we don't know cuz nobody know, nobody knows, nobody knows Any moment things can change We can make a guess but it's hard to know, hard to know, hard to know Pre Chorus Life is hard to keep my head on straight for whatever life is bringing me Chorus Is it fate or destiny is it luck or it's on me live for today don't let it get away Is it fate or destiny is it luck or it's on me nobody knows what tomorrow will bring I've tried tarot cards and read my stars and the iris scan used my spirit guides even visualized but i realize now it's all up to me cuz nobody knows, nobody knows, nobody knows Pre-Chorus Chorus Bridge Ah ooh so many choices I'm lucky to have choices ah ooh just wanna chose the right way gotta keep out of trouble Chorus Chorus GODDESS I have wanted to write this song for so long... so long. I think it turned out to be fun, dancey, strong, playful but meaningful. This is the anthem I sing to myself right before a red carpet event, or a show, or a party filled with models.. It's one life, I can feel good in my skin, make every second amazing- or be scared and filled with self doubt. I chose GODDESS. I chose GODDESS for the entertainment industry. I chose GODDESS for corporate America. I chose GODDESS for our government. I chose GODDESS for the future generation of girls. Chorus: GODDESS x4 I'm free like a Goddess I fly like a Goddess come and be a Goddess with me. I'm hot like a Goddess I rock like a Goddess come and be a Goddess with me. Verse 1: you know your beautiful why do you doubt yourself you know you've got today you are so wonderful and it's empowering together we'll find a way Pre-Chorus: follow your heart don't tear yourself apart because of what the others say Chorus Chorus Verse 2: Now that you've come this far don't you feel powerful do you know your strength? You can have everything spread your wings fly away find you own better day Pre-Chorus Chorus Chorus Breakdown: throw your hands up in the air throw your hands up in the air let me see you dance right there let me see you dance right there repeat Your a Goddess a Goddess throw your hands up in the air Your a Goddess a Goddess let me see you dance right there Your a Goddess a Goddess throw your hands up in the air Your a Goddess be honest You just don't care Chorus Chorus Little love Nothing is more perfect than Little Love. New Love. Innocent Love. But, little love grows up and you have to adapt. Sometimes you really miss it. You want it back. Just like I am never going to be a child again and time has taken the edge off my childlike wonder, the same with love. Doesn't make mature love unwanted. I still wouldn't trade my mature love for a little love with anyone else in the whole world. Little love Precious love never had to work real hard it was all so easy then like laughing through the night it was fun and playful then Pre-Chorus your kiss made my knees feel weak your body felt so right Chorus so innocent our love was happiness but time took that away how do we find our way back to the place seems like yesterday little love i miss that little love that perfect love little love precious love now everything seems so hard cuz I'm so so mad at you we never used to fight like that I'd like to go back in time and bring back all the love we had Pre-Chorus Chorus Bridge sometimes I see myself without you and I don't know if I want it to be true when times get hard I don't want to let you go cuz I only want to be with you Chorus Somethings Missing I'm not one of those 2 second songwriters. Write a track and the words start pouring out. I have to sit with it, think about it, feel it out, let it talk to me a bit, and then the words come. They come, but not usually flowing right out. I write and re-write. This was not one of those songs though. This was a moment in the studio with Simone on the guitar and Rich matching the beat where it all came together at once. Simone had this cool retro-r&b feel guitar vibe going. He just started playing it. It reminded me of Alicia Keys albums which I love and have listened to hundreds of thousands of times. And I just started singing to it. This is the first go around of the vocals. Nothing re-touched, nothing even re-sung. The whole thing took an hour. And, I am pretty sure it is Simone's favorite on the album. This is one of the benefits of being an Independent Musician. No label head to tell me 'This feel is so different from the rest of the album", "This won't play with top 40 radio", 'The album has to feel like it's the same artist all the way through". Well this album is written all by the same artist. Who, just like you, has lots of musical interests, influences and loves. I love Alicia Keys and Dance music, and Carrie Underwood and gospel music and even opera...Ok, that one is not like you. :) Somethings Missing Somethings Missing in my life Somethings Missing in my days, baby The way your hand was perfect in mine and your body fits me just right I never felt just like that since you've been gone Chorus Oh, my baby's gone away and left me here alone my baby's got a new love oh, and I'm on my own Verse 2 Somethings Missing ooh from my heart somethings missing from my soul the way your hand was perfect in mine and your body fits me just right I never felt just like that since you been gone Chorus Oh my baby's gone away and left me here alone my baby's got a new love oh and I'm on my own Sideshow Freak just laugh and smile every time I hear/sing this song. Rich (my producer) presented to me this track that he and Simone had put together called 'New Cow Pokey'. The track itself was tongue in cheek country. It was funny-just by itself. Cute. So, I started writing to it, with this idea that I was broken down in the country, the hot desert roads of Texas trying to get a ride into town. But, who cares about that guy, so he gets a ride, so he doesn't whatever... But, what if I was part of a sideshow. I was a midget wrestler, or a bearded lady, armless wonder, or a 7 feet tall sword swallower. Imagine you are that guy, walking up to a farmhouse outside of Galviston, people would be much less likely to come racing to the door to help out a human pincushion when they peaked out of the window to see them coming. But, they need the help just as much. He has his family, all part of the traveling carnival, but step outside of that group he is an un-welcomed guest. Maybe someone helps him out, you hope someone does, but maybe not. Maybe he feels like he's 'half-a mile from hell'. Sideshow Freak Halfway through the desert Galviston's ahead my pickup's giving me trouble my gages showing red in the dead of summer old girl's breaking down gotta get a walkin' farmhouse up ahead knock, knock, knocking trying to get attention no one gonna help me once they look at me Pre-Chorus knock, knock, knocking tying to get attention no ones gonna help me knock, knock knocking trying to catch a break they don't wanna help me cuz I'm a sideshow freak Chorus Sideshow, sideshow, sideshow freak not like no of y'all I'm a sideshow freak Repeat Verse 2 Born into the carnival that's way it's always been always had my kinfolk was watching after me Now I'm here a walkin' all by my lonesome self not with all my misfits I'm just freakin' people out Pre-Chorus Chours Knock know Bridge Once I get back home I'm safe again how did I end up here half a mile from hell? Pre-Chorus Chorus Hoping and Praying I was a temp. I worked in a bunch of the downtown Boston big accounting, finance, lawyering firms. Deloutte and Touche, Smith Barney were a few of the chosen companies that I graced the front desk of. In some ways, it was fascinating. Finance is dominated by men. Mostly men, yes not all. Mostly. The way most finance companies are set up is the same was as MadMen. Have you seen that TV show? The secretaries sit out front of the man's office and bring him coffee. We would set up the working lunch then race in after it was done to see if there were any free sandwiches left. I have grabbed a happily eaten client sandwich in my day. Ughh. One place I interviewed didn't allow women to wear pants. It is that way still. There are a few woman offices...but mostly not. Mostly women still make 75 cents to the mans dollar. Fact. Hoping and Praying 10 minutes late but don't bite my head off I was running through midtown and the Starbucks line was long but I got your coffee and your shirts from the cleaners I'm in the elevator and I'm changing my shoes I walk up to your desk forgot there was a meeting gave me the look from hell and I knew my day was screwed Everyday here's the same nothing has changed I'm just taking up space praying for the weekend Chorus Climbing up reaching out but I'm smashing my head against the wall working hard busting ass I'm hoping and praying you don't forget me again Verse 2 My girlfriends and me were out partying past midnight cuz we're all in the same place going nowhere fast don't know what's fair or now I can barely pay for this round I'm an educated girl who can't get ahead and I'm running in a circle feeling down, counted out they don't think of me much just a punching bag and dumping ground PreChorus Chorus Chorus Commander in Chief This song is my heart pouring out onto the page. If you know me, you know I was an early and happy Hillary for President supporter. I wrote this song the day that she pulled out of the race. It's so bitter, I will admit that. This song was the cause of most of the fights with my producer. I wanted to put it on the album, it's heartfelt even if it's bitter. No one is happy all the time, this was as true an emotion as any. I was never rational when it came to this song, so god help the audience if/when I ever perform this song. This song is dedicated to those that have ever wanted something so so bad their heart ached. You prayed, worked, and slaved for that thing only to watch it slip from your hands. You lost, you didn't get it, you didn't win. It happens. It hurts. Life is not fair. This is our song. Commander in Chief I guess we missed it our chance to ever see it cuz now it's all over I'm gonna live my whole life and probably never see it cuz now it's all over I don't get why it didn't happen after everything we've been through cuz now it's all over got my head in my hands for the future generation cuz now it's all over Pre-Chorus I just wanted a chance for a woman to be on top Chorus and I'm mad it didn't happen and I'm sad it didn't happen it's not right it shouldn't happened it's right now shouldve been commander in chief Verse 2 I know we missed it our chance to ever see it cuz it's so over and I'll be 94 sitting on my porch just shaking my head back and forth cuz I'll have lived my whole life in the 21st century and I never saw it and you can feel how bitter I am and I don't mind even saying cuz it's so over Pre-chorus Chorus Bridge I feel for what could have been and what it means to me so few that are on top i was wishing and praying Repeat Chorus Chorus Catch Me A Killer I love the wild wild west. The complete lawlessness that was the open range. It's kill or be killed. In this song me defending my ranch against outlaws... it's kill. This song is so fun because it's the complete opposite of me. I absolutely HAVE to make a video for this song. Can't you see the whole thing. I will learn how not to fall off a horse just for this song. Catch Me A Killer Riding on the range feeling kinda strange someone drew a beat, I could see An outlaw up ahead too late to get away the bullet in my horse was for me Pre Chorus This is the Wild Wild West Chorus You made a big mistake You went and shot my horse I'm gonna catch me a killer I'm gonna shoot him dead. Verse 2: Went back into town started asking 'round found his favorite watering hole Sitting at the bar drinking whiskey by the jar waiting for my friend to show it was quarter past 10 and he came walking in my moment was finally here. Pre Chorus Chorus Bridge They call me the dead eye dame mess with me, I'll blow out your flame you got what you deserve Chorus Chorus out Virtual Romance This song comes from my blue journal that comes from recycled paper from the rainforest inhabitants stitched together to create a book. I swear that's what it says, I got it from Papyrus. I love the feeling of the paper when you write on it and it has this twine binding that you have to be so gentle with. It's the perfect place to write your innermost feelings. This song came from midnight writing thinking of everybody I know who have match.com sites. Working the ins and outs of photoshop to perfect that 'natural look', editing and re-editing the ideal catch phrases in your bio, looking whimsical and witty and not desperate and detached... I love it. I don't knock it, this site works. People do get married from on-line dating, it's completely practical. This is the date story of one overly doctored Match.com site, an un-apologetically doctored man. It was a little cruel in the first go-around. It went: 'I'm not sure how you thought I would miss those extra 80 pounds, and that PHD flew right out the door, and you were clearly now so un-retouched...' It came across needlessly mean, so we edited it to make it a happy ending. Every girl loves to dance, especially salsa! I suck at it, but I don't care, I will salsa the night away happily. So, the idea that this trickster could salsa and was good at it, gives the story a twist and makes the girl less cruel. I thought she had every reason to be cruel, he lied, but this works better. And the track is too fun to be cruel. :) Virtual Romance Verse 1 You sounded so cute on the phone and your picture online looked tasty that PHD from MIT I was intreged So I said we could meet downtown Pre-Chorus I'm ready to meet Mr. Right... Now Chorus Digitally Romanced Physically Enhanced Graphic Redesigned Repeat Verse 2 Met at the bar at 9 not exactly what I had in mind spoke 3 words to me and then you grabbed my hand taught me how to salsa dance spent the whole night spinning around Chorus Chorus Bridge Mis-informed his match.com but here tonight i'm having fun maybe we will meet again having drinks with my new man Chorus Chorus and he's my virtual man.
