about

Ever heard of Maroon 5? Adam Levine’s makeup artist once did Chris’ makeup for a show. Mind you, this was a long time ago -back in his old band, Varsity Heroes.

You’ve never heard of Varsity Heroes? Dang.
Well, they were a pretty big deal.

The guitar player’s kid brother once met Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects outside of the Campbell Gaslighter. I think he was in a band called Jesus Abs, or something like that. Good band. Kid could play, that’s for sure.

Flash forward a few years. Chris -the guy who had his makeup done by Maroon 5- now plays for this band called Talkie...from Fremont, I think -about 30 miles outside of San Francisco. I'm pretty sure they once played on the same stage that the Grateful Dead played on. They put out an album called "Hablas" a few years back. It’s not for everyone. I enjoyed it though.

I hear they’ve been working on a new record. Not sure why that matters. Nobody listens to records anymore. Nobody listens to anything anymore. Well, except for me. Whatever.

Track Name: As Time Goes By
You must remember this,
A kiss is still a kiss,
A sigh is just a sigh,
The fundamental things apply,
As times goes by.

And when two lovers woo,
They still say “I love you”,
On that you can rely,
No matter what the future brings,
As time goes by.
Track Name: Fuzzy Disco
Take your time, take it from me.
It ain’t yours, and nothing comes free.
I’ll keep your time ‘til someone can see,
When the beat hits your feet,
Aren’t you lost and lonely?

Don’t you know, just cause you can see it,
Doesn’t mean you gotta believe it.
Takin’ time ‘til someone remembers
To keep with the beat, instead of looking back.

Well, take a walk in the sky,
Then come back down,
Come on, you tired eyes,
It’ll come around.
The days and the nights,
The wasted time,
I’ve never been the kind to give up, but for once...

If I could turn the clock to yesterday,
Well I might find a better way,
Enough to make me feel like I was born
to survive.

Take your time, but don’t go easy.
I never learn, cause no one can teach me.
I kept time, but I couldn’t be
Left to think, swim or sink
In the changing tide.

Well, take a walk in the sky,
Then come back down,
Come on, you tired eyes,
It’ll come around.
The days and the nights,
The wasted time,
I’ve never been the kind to give up, but this once...

If I could turn the clock to yesterday,
Well I might find a better way,
Enough to make me feel like I’d do more
Than survive.
Track Name: Marcy
It’s taken me some time to understand
Living in the past is not in demand,
So I’ll run from it, I know I will.

Maybe when you’re drunk you’ll call me up,
And talk about the girls you used to love.
While the years go by, you’re catching up.

I never thought that I,
At 23, would stand here
Singing songs of times
I loved before and lost.
When I grow old,
Will I remember what I’ve done,
Or what I didn’t do?

People talk and drown in their own words,
Protect themselves from things they haven’t heard.
So I’ll run from it, I know I will.

I never thought that I,
At 23, would stand here
Singing songs of times
I loved before and lost.
When I grow old,
Will I remember what I’ve done,
Or what I didn’t do?

I never thought that I,
At 23, would stand here
Singing songs of times
I loved before and lost.
When I grow old,
Will I remember what I’ve done,
Yeah what I did,
Or who I was,
Or what I didn’t do?
Track Name: Sorry, Shy
I’m a coward and a thief
When trouble finds you I’ll just leave
Never one to stay and fight
I think I’d rather run and hide

Trudging through this red country
I think I lost a part of me
Both of us run from the past
But running never seems to last

I’ll stick around, I’ll try to stick to you
But it won’t last cause I’m a fool

Shining armor but no knight
No strength behind the shield outside
You looked at me with such disgust
On that day I lost your trust

I’ll stick around, I’ll try to stick to you
But it won’t last cause I’m a fool
I’m sorry Shy, I owe some debt to you
I won’t run, we’ll make it through
Track Name: Costa Rica
Down in Costa Rica, that’s where I met my tica,
and I can’t tell you why, I think I’m in love with her.
She told me that she don't know a better looking gringo,
and I can’t tell you why, I think she love me too.

Costa Rica, nice to meet ya, I think I love ya

So feeling like a winner, I asked her out to dinner,
she said I was nice, but she never seen me before.
Dice que “no me acuerdo bailando en enero,”
she said “you must be high, to think I would be dancing with you.”

Oh Costa Rica, not so nice to meet ya
Costa Rica, I guess I’ll see ya.

You probably think that I just don't care,
an American man, another millionaire,
you just figure my life must be going somewhere.
But I wanna surmise that I’m a solitaire,
just embedded inside someone’s rocking chair,
feels like I’m dead oscillating there.
But if ever a day you come back to me,
in some retributive reality,
won’t you pluck me sweetie and set me free.

Costa Rica,
Guess I don’t need ya
Costa Rica,
Adios amiga.
Track Name: Ready
I can count all the days and the hours,
Every night I tossed and turned
Wondering when I’d finally learn your name.

I’m ready for you,
Do you know if you’re ready for me?
‘Cause I’ve been waiting a long, long time for you.

Circling over and over, this feeling,
Driven mad by the need to belong,
Giving all and receiving all the same.

I’m gonna find you,
And you’re gonna find me too,
And every piece will fit together.
One day you’ll see,
Just you and me,
I’ll be ready for you,
Just promise you’ll be ready ‘cause…

I’m ready for you,
Do you know if you’re ready for me?
‘Cause I’ve been waiting a long, long time for you.
Track Name: Another
Stay awake all night,
I’m perfectly grown.
Talk about your life,
Accepting my own.
Thinking jealous thoughts,
Won’t be that way again.
We just fell in love,
But we don’t know the ending.

Stuck in my routine with another,
We can’t fall asleep, but no wonder,
We reach for stars, never thinking of settling up.

I couldn’t tell you where it ends,
I couldn’t tell you where it’s going,
I’m slowly watching all my friends,
Reciting lines that say they’re growing.

Change to meet your needs,
I’ll be anything you want.
With respect to me,
And everything I’m not.
Stretching way too thin,
To watch those credits roll.
Starting somewhere new,
Where we don’t know the ending.

Stuck in my routine with another,
We can’t fall asleep, but no wonder,
We reach for stars, never thinking of settling down.

I couldn’t tell you where it ends,
I couldn’t tell you where it’s going,
I’m slowly watching all my friends,
Reciting lines instead of growing.
Track Name: Headfone, Pt. 1
I’m keeping my eyes on the skies,
But I’m leaving my head close behind.
I’m keeping my eyes on the prize,
But I’m cutting the prize down to size.
