New Love 03:14
New Love you came alone and I came alone it's really all about timing well I'm sorry that I'm late but in my book I'd written 8:00 but you stayed and you laughed at my silly voices and I laughed at your adorable laugh but you had to go 'cause it was your birthday and you'd already made plans to see all your friends and I had butterflies in my belly 'cause it's new love the intention of love fluttering feeling of love

Pimple On The Nose - lyrics by Ronley Teper It's like a pimple on the nose. I should leave it alone. But it's calling to be popped. It takes all my will to stop. As time passes by, tick tock tick tock. To the point of casual hellos. And all our mutual friends' babies -- are now children, futures beginning to happen. Well the sushi bar's still there and so is the chicken place. But a lot of the memories have closed their doors. And I think about you. Was I such a fool? Thinking 'bout you. Was I such a fool? Was I just a working mule?

Big Black Clouds Lyrics by Ronley Teper If the sun refused to shine and big black clouds lurked all around Sun ain’t nowhere round to burn so big black clouds wash away it seems so cliche cliche but hey, hey hey it’s the way things are today maybe tomorrow we’ll find a better way maybe tomorrow will bring a brighter day If the sun refused to shine and big black clouds lurked all around and sun aint nowhere round to burn so big black clouds wash away maybe tomorrow we’ll find a better way maybe tomorrow will bring a brighter day maybe tomorrow

Love Again lyrics by Ronley Teper You can run away you can hide away and never love again never love again Well, you’ve done this before might do it some more try not to keep score and never love again never love again but, love can be just friends love can be a man or woman love can be inanimate love can be just a nice cup of tea And you can love again you can love love again you can love again you can love again …

Crazy Times 01:43
Shit’s hitting the fan Time to do something ‘bout it Got to shout it out Got to act out about it ‘Cause in these times, such great divide and there’s no hiding it no doughts about it it’s crazy times Change is coming, whether you like it or not So which side are you on? Are you over there trying to hold on to the past divided in social class hate and religious faith? Or are you over here figuring out whats best, deconstructing the walls to figure out what’s next? Gotta come together Gotta wave the stormy weather together Gotta listen, gotta act There’s no turning back The Future is now So let’s figure out how. Shit’s hitting the fan We gotta work like fam(ily) In these crazy times

Everybody's Friend lyrics by Ronley Teper Everybody's friend See’s the party to the end Everybody's friend The kind you can never pretend Everybody's friend Sees you through a few bends Been behind the bar through a few trends Everybody's friend Get to know her Watch the light stir Over beers and gin Next of kin kind of thing Philosophizing over the jukebox Jukebox of nostalgia and a mischievous grin Everybody's friend

Everyone Loves A Good Story, lyrics Ronley Teper everyone loves a good story and in this case the story begins in the middle in the middle before the end and a new beginning throw in some setting to add colour first person narration a touch of alliteration and if i knew where this was going I'd tell you but it's all coming out in ebb and flows and the narrative will nourish as the plot unfolds set the tone add an interesting subplot antagonize the protagonist is it ok to side with the antagonist? long run-on sentences brief amounts of sentiment when to know the character is spent climb the cliff to climax and if i knew where this was going I'd tell you but it's all coming out in ebb and flows and the narrative will nourish as the plot unfolds How do I stay in this point of view writers block is creeping through is it good enough- can I get an advance for this stuff? and if i knew where this was going I'd tell you but it's all coming out in ebb and flows and the narrative will nourish as the plot unfolds.

Alright 04:58
Alright, lyrics by Ronley Teper it may take a couple of minutes if its something little let it whittle it may take a couple of days if it's something that docent want to go away it may take a couple of months to get over the hump jump over the bumps it may take a couple of friends friendships that end a few backs to bend it may take a generation of change at the edge and a new language It may take a couple of years a shitload of tears yearning discerning nights tossing and turning but despite how it may appears ------------- it's going to ba alright it's going to be alright alright It may take a couple of sends, ——— pretends, ——— there’s never beginnings without ends it may take a double dare, and a little bit of wear and tear it may take a dying breath to get it off your chest just keep your eyes on the sunset in the west It may take a couple of years a shitload of tears yearning discerning nights tossing and turning but despite how it may appear but in the meantime they'll be times when it's going to ba alright it's going to be alright alright

about

Everyone Loves A Good Story

Everything in life begins with creativity. If you don't know where to go, keep going. Eventually you'll end up somewhere.

With this project I am once again reminded of how essential collaboration is to the human psyche. Not just for artists, but for us all. In making this record, I feel keenly aware of how art is the outcome of collective energy, family, of community, of the need for connection that is being human.  More than I could have ever conceived on my own, this record combines the energies of so many creators, all connecting through the super-addictive art of sharing stories.
