Track Name: It's Alright It's OK
It’s Alright (Gladstone/Girio)

Sam told mom she was out for the day
First bus, hitched the rest of the way
Three days later she was broke in LA
Don’t worry its alright, she’s ok

Wait's on the bench for a chance to play
Gets the nod for the final play
A suicide pass, we can only pray
Don’t worry its alright, he’s ok
Don’t worry its alright, he’s ok

Chorus
It’s alright it’s ok
It’s alright it’s ok
It’s alright it’s ok
It’s alright it’s ok

Best-laid plans can change in a day
When two way streets become one way
When compromise is the only way
Don’t worry it’s alright, we’re ok

Laugh or cry when there’s nothing to say
Take your time try another way
Change your mind come another day
Don’t worry its alright you’re ok
Don’t worry its alright you’re ok

Chorus

Solo

Chorus X 2

Acapela: It’s alright it’s ok!

Track Name: Tu Mirada
Tu Mirada (Gladstone/ Girio 2012)

I’d like to tell a story
About a boy who doesn’t sleep
Who sees the way to seize the day
But not the things he seeks

I’d like to paint a picture
With words instead of ink
So you can hang it in your head
And see it when you blink

Chorus
Hey hey, yo te quiero
Hey hey, porque te vi
Hey hey, yo te quiero
Hey hey, porque te vi

Certain things can shape your dreams
And help you reach the sky
Its easy if you strap on wings
With will instead of wine

If you think you’re willing
to try it all again
I suggest before we start
You take it on the chin

Chorus

Me gusta tu mirada, y tu forma de pensar
Me gusta tu estilo y tu sonrisa me hace llorar

If I can’t contain it
And need to say my piece
And go ahead and make my point
I know it makes me weak

Standing still I just can’t say
The part of me I want to save
I’ll have my cake and eat it too
I only hope I don’t lose you

Chorus

Repeat

Track Name: Monotone
MONOTONE (Gladstone/ Girio 2013)

There was no treble, there was no bass
Nothing special about her face
Conversation bereft of fact
In a word, the girl was flat

Behind her eyes, not a spark
Pheromones stuck in park
Believing every word you say
Still here tomorrow but gone today

Chorus
Mannequin in a bikini
8 ½ without Fellini
She made her living in mid-flight
Thank you sir, red or white?

Bridge

Like a song without highs and lows
Monotone on my Bose
Everything about her was good on paper
Until we found we couldn’t shake her

Chorus x 2

Track Name: There's A Reason
There’s a Reason (Gladstone /Girio)

Mantelpiece, picture, a man in flight
Living room empty not a thing in sight- nowhere to sit
Carpet damp, moisture, like a field at night
At the door my lady paralyzed with fright- she wouldn’t come in

Overhead the clouds come rolling in
Run for shelter it goes from thick to thin- I’m getting wet
Final chapter is full of fear and sin
Final tally there’s nothing left to win- nothing to loose

Chorus
Time runs through
There’s a reason she knew
Trouble comes
There’s a season, there’s a story
That I just can’t tell

Chorus

Now and then were all just a little mad
Running fast with scissors feel a little jab- a poke in the gut
Standing here, platform on the edge of fact
If I take one step will it fade to black?- No more to know

Chorus

Got a reason for time, to go on through
There was a season when it was me and you- not anymore
There’s a story that I have got to tell
The mantle’s empty and your stuck in jail- you’ll never get out

Time runs through
There’s a reason she knew
Trouble comes
There’s a story, that’s a reason
That I’ve got to tell.

Track Name: All I Got
All I Got (Gladstone/Girio)

All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot
All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot

There’s a book on the shelf that I never read
Sheets in the closet never made the bad
A bottle of whiskey that my grandfather had
And two cups of coffee shrinking by the bed

All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot
All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot

You told me its hurts to say the things that you said
You wrote me a letter that I never read
Its one thing to leave and another to be left
I hope that you’re happy, yeah your dog is dead

All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot
All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot

Keyboard Solo

My mother always told me I was far ahead
My father gave things he really shouldn’t have
My brother told me all about the world ahead
My sister was the one who kept a level head

All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot
All I got, I’ve been counting and it ‘aint a lot

Track Name: Something Right
Something Right (Gladstone & Girio)

There’s something about a beer with the boys at the bar
With your hat on the table and your hand on your heart
There’s something to be said for a brand new start
He always falls apart when it gets too dark

He’s the kind of guy that likes to be right
A fear of missing out, wound too tight
He’s the kind of guy that gets in fights
Another pint of stout to dim the light

There’s something about walking late at night
With stars in the sky and the moon just right
There’s something to be said for a day gone right
She never falls apart unless she’s forced to fight

She’s the kind of girl that sleeps at night
Loves to do her job, and make things right
She’s the kind of girl that says all right
She's never been afraid, to live her life

Bridge

There’s something about the things they talk and hear
Hoping that the other one will quell the fears
There’s something just good about being here
They hope to get together when the air is clear

He’s the kind of guy that likes to be right
A fear of missing out, wound too tight
She’s the kind of girl that sleeps at night
She's never been afraid, to live her life

He’s the kind of guy that likes to be right
A fear of missing out, wound too tight
She’s the kind of girl that sleeps at night
She's never been afraid, to live her life

Track Name: San Diego
San Diego (Girio/Gladstone)

They drove across the desert
The sky so wide, they felt so free
It rained the day they got there
And every day that week

A couple miles from the old town
He saw the sign but wouldn’t slow down
It seemed to her they were old now
But life is never quite done

Chorus
If you walk fast enough to fly
You’ll never need to ask her why
Full of fear, full of pride
Brush away the tears one more time

He sad the car was a cherry
He told the story with a ruby ring
A thousand cars in a minute
The tires hum and the highway sings

Chorus

The van stood in the driveway
A bill was coming that they couldn’t pay
It hadn’t rained all summer
It was time to go home

If you walk fast enough to fly
You’ll never need to ask her why
Forget your fear, Forget your pride
Keep away those tears one more time

Track Name: Another Sign
Another instrumental so it's all you!
Track Name: Girls & Boys
Girls & Boys (Blur)

Street's like a jungle
So call the police
Following the herd
Down to Greece
On holiday
Love in the 90's
Is paranoid
On sunny beaches
Take your chances looking for

[Chorus]
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they're girls
Who do girls like they're boys
Always should be someone you really love

Avoiding all work
Because there's none available
Like battery thinkers
Count your thoughts on 1 2 3 4 5 fingers
Nothing is wasted
Only reproduced
Get nasty blisters
Du bist sehr schan
But we haven't been introduced

Chorus X 3
Track Name: Right Girl
Right Girl (Gladstone 2013)

Jenny was the wrong girl
Jenny was the wrong girl
She helped me get started
Showed me where my heart was
But Jenny was the wrong girl

Emily was the right girl
Emily was the right girl
She kissed me by the fire
My status went up higher
Cause Emily was the right girl

Why cant I find you, why cant it see?
The girl from column a, b, c
I know your out there, I know your face
Your curvy shape and your sun kissed nape

Natasha was the wrong girl
Natasha was the wrong girl
Her jeans were tight as rubber
My fingers sore and stubborn
Natasha was the wrong girl

Tina was the right girl
Tina was the right girl
She gave me lots of yardage
And left me broken hearted
Tina was the right girl

Why cant I find you, why cant it see?
The girl from column a, b, c
On the beach or on my boat
All this keeps my dreams afloat

Cathy was the wrong girl
Cathy was the wrong girl
A dad she couldn’t follow
Her mother stuck and hollow
Cathy was the wrong girl

Stephanie was the right girl
Stephanie was the right girl
Her parents didn’t like me
I never went to Ivy
But Stephanie was the right girl

I saw the sun in Robin's eyes
I saw the stars in Jesse’s eyes
I walked the moon in Karina’s hand
And lost my mind in Bea’s plans

Becky, Anita, Sally, Mo
Tracey, Pia, Chicako
Rebecca, Jenny, yes there were two
Three if you count the petting zoo

Jenny was the right girl
Jenny was the right girl!

Track Name: Two Birds
Two Birds (Gladstone 2011)

Two birds in a tree
Only one worm in between
The bread is thick but the butter is thin
Better fix it again
Better fix it again

Every time he bleeds
From his head down to his knees
No sympathy
Better fix it again

Fix it again, he said with a grin
Retreated to the back with a bottle of gin
The door's left open but she won’t come in
Better fix it again

Two birds in a tree
Only one worm in between
The bread is thick but the butter is thin
Better fix it again
Better fix it again

Over heeled and stout
She's always down but never out
Her lips sealed in a pout
Better fix it again

She’s all shopped out, there is no doubt
Nothing left to talk about
Brand new look, he still don’t care
Better fix it again

Two birds in a tree
Only one worm in between
The bread is thick but the butter thin
Better fix it again
Better fix it again
Better fix it again
Better fix it again
Track Name: Profit 2.0
Profit 2.0 (Gladstone/Girio)

Here’s your job so do it
Don’t make a fuss or fight
Just keep on making money
And all will be alright

Here’s your food so eat it
Its made to keep on the shelf
Don’t worry how, or think of what
It might do to your health

Chorus
P-R-O-F-I-T that’s how they spell democracy
P-R-O-F-I-T that’s how they spell democracy

One party to the left
One party to the right
Doesn’t really matter
Cause neither one will fight

Profit motive is the system
It tells you what you can do
The reality tomorrow brings
Is up to me and you

Chorus

Now here’s the news that you should know
And nothing you should not
It feeds our web of lies and crap
To make sure you stay caught

Here’s your life’s ambition
So you can save the time
Of thinking for yourself and
Get back to making mine

Track Name: When I Think Of You (Costa Rica)
When I Think Of You (Gladstone/Girio 2013)

Ballena beach and the moon shines down
At a dance with water all around
We shared a joke and a story or two
I fell in love, you fell in the pool
I miss you so much

Chorus
When I think of you (Costa Rica)
My heart smiles and the sun breaks through
When I think of you (Costa Rica)
Birds sing and the sky turns blue
When I think of you...

I feel at home in every town
From San Jose to Ojochal
I realize there's a part of me
That got away but never is free 'cause...
I miss you so much

Chorus

So may sleeps till my return
The waves call and my body yearns
I could write a thousand words a day
But then again all there is to say
Te falto mucho!

Chorus

When I think of you... (repeat)

Track Name: Swimming
Chorus
Box of water bag of air absent father didn’t care
Reduced to ashes, strand of hair,
I took you swimming and I left you there

Undignified or simply scared
Either way all four were there
We had a purpose if not a plan
To say goodbye away from land

Chorus

You would have said it’s a waste of time
She would have yelled that it was fine
When conversation turns to shouts
I understand why she got out

Chorus

Approach as soft as a water landing
None of us will be left standing
The scratch of nails will be my branding
Your debt will always be outstanding

Chorus
