I want to give thanks to my friends that have help make my vision come true with their musicianship, love, and trust. My family who without experiencing the turmoil we face would have never put me on a path that inspired these songs. Thank you, Carolina for perfectly capturing the visuals of "Meditations". It really tied it all together. Special thank you to the extremely talented, quirky but down to Earth, general of the studio, Oliver Ignatius. Thank you for letting us into your home and being your guest. We'd love to do it again!

Recorded at Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen

Track Name: East RIver Jive
When two lovers start to change time anticipates.
It senses loath. the doubt, and fear.
It knows the end is near.
But remember why you're there
You're young and don't really care.
You'll start to cringe with regrets so big
You want it to end today.

Then it was truly the first time
That it would be purely just a sacrifice

And I see myself loving 'til I'm old.
Until excitement's faded and pain has left my soul.
I've traded rest to love you all the time.
Just keep me hanging on
You can't go wrong.

When you feel it's getting old,
Be sure to slow your roll.
Don't test the fall of the Ed Koch Bridge
The height won't let you live.
As that city starts to sleep
Your mind starts growing weak.
You remember that your head tells lies
To fire you up inside.

Then it was truly the first time
That it would be purely just a sacrifice.
Track Name: Trees
I've been searching for a way
To climb these trees away from my pain
Up high in the canopy
All is forgotten finally
Climbing high all these days
My journey seems out of reach
All the folks judging me know
I still climb 'cause their roots go deep

At the top you'll find serenity
They are the divine enitity
From their roots to the leaves to the leaves in the sky
knowing both ends you'd never cry

Some people fear I'll fall on my face
They don't know these trees reach outer space
The holiness can't be traced
But that's why I climb high to find my way.
Track Name: See My Luv For You
Girl, you are the one I've been needing some of.
For so long, I knew that my game was meant for you.
So let me show you how I do.
Just let me show you before time gets cruel to you.

See my love for you
I always pay my dues
Just let me break on through
Your heart that tears me apart
So beautiful it's true
All the things I'd do to you
Just let me take you high
To the sky. Yeah, baby. We'll fly.

Confidential the terms, I trust.
But it overwhelms my lust for you. Just you.
So let me show you how I do.
Just let me show you before time gets cruel to you.

See my love for you
I always pay my dues
Just let me break on through
Your heart that tears me apart
So beautiful it's true
All the things I'd do to you
Let me take you high
To the sky. Yeah, baby. We'll fly.

I love how you just come and go.
It makes me feel so alone with you
And I hope you know that I want to hold you from behind.
Track Name: Priceless Riches
Hey there, don't you know that I can see you?
Your people watching skills are all but faint.
I wondered what must of caught your attention
And I want to know what you contemplate.

Do you see what I see everyday?
It's hard to say what goes on
When you're one in a million and you're taken all wrong.
Keep your head up, chin up high, and eyes open wide
Because you're doing alright.

You're running late as you go through the cold
You hate when people tell you what to do
So as that wind chill cuts through your skin
You're tearing up now because you've just given in.

Do you see what I see everyday?
I feel your pain but go on
Because you're one in a million that will keep us all strong.
In the end. someone will lend a piece of their heart to you.
