Story


This is about someone I met while hanging out. I was newly single and he was a new flavor.  We had instant chemistry but we werer both shy about approaching each other and eventually we did. We hooked up had a great time and then I ended up writing Is This Love.

Lyrics

Stop Teazin Me Up

 

I see you looking at me , I see the lust in your eyes

as they travel up and down my face, my chest , my hips, my thighs

oh baby i'm feeling you , i can tell you're feeling me too

so come on over, show me what you can do

you better stop teazin up, you better stop teazin up

if you don't aim to please, you better stop the teaze

you better stop teazin me and start pleasing me oh yeah

 

You got that look , like you're ready for some action

you know I need some good hard satisfaction

i got what  you want , you got what I need

so come on baby give it all to me

chorus

lead

the time is here, the time is now

so come on baby lets put this thing on down

better stop teazin me start to pleasing me oh yeah

come on give me what i need

Story

I RECORDED THIS SONG BECAUSE IT'S MY FAVORITE SONG TO SING AND I LOVE THE ROLLING STONES. THIS IS THE PRODUCER'S VERSION OF THIS SONG.  I ALSO LIKE TO REFLECT ON WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD  TODAY IN THE VAMP ENDING OF THIS RECORDING TO PUT MY OWN SPIN ON IT.

Lyrics

GIMME SHELTER

YEAH A STORM IS THREATENING MY VERY LIFE TODAY, IF I DON'T GET SOME SHELTER, LORD I'M GONNA FADE AWAY

WAR CHILDREN IT'S JUST A SHOT AWAY IT'S JUST A SHOT AWAY, WAR CHILDREN IT'S JUST A SHOT AWAY, ITS JUST A SHOT AWAY

YEAH THERE'S A FIRE SWEEPING OUR VERY STREETS TODAY, BURNS LIKE A RED COAL CARPET MAD BULL DONE LOST HIS WAY

CHORUS

YEAH THE FLOODS  ARE THREATENING OUR VERY STREETS TODAY, GIMME GIMME SHELTER, LORD I'M GONNA FADE AWAY

Story

This song is about a beautiful man I met and thought it was only going to be a one night stand kind of thing but we continued to enjoy each others company.  He was beautiful, smart, inspirational and talented and I started falling deeply for him.  I did not want to fall in love with someone who did not love me back.  That relationship which I broke off because i was getting in to deep is what inspired me to write this song.  I was going for a 60's soul meets new soul vibe.

Lyrics

Is This Love

What is the object of this game we're playing, how do I win or lose

You keep talking , but you ain't saying, what you want me to do

I don't know what I'm feeling is this love or lust 

It's got my body rocking and reeling, I can't get enough 

chorus:

Is this love, or is it just infatuation, is this love I want to know what is the situation

It's not just a physical thing, you got it going on in everyway

you work hard for the money, honey and backup everything that you say

Your body's beautiful, and your smile just captures my soul

and when I look into your eyes I lose all self control

chorus x 2

People say that you're no good for me, but baby I still want you

I don't care what the people say. because I'm so into you

I need a love that's gonna last for a while, something i can hold onto

so won't you let me know something baby, before I get to into you

chorus out

Story

This song is about a boyfriend I was with for several years.  He was a great guy with a bad drinking problem. He was always getting in trouble and getting injured and then he started hanging out with crazy chics he met on the internet.   We did break up he landed himself one of them internet chics but we are still good friends and we play music together.

Lyrics

Broken Hearted Blues

Me and my baby been together for a while and we thought everything was good,  but somethings changed things are rearranged he ain't acting like the way he should

and every time in the back of my mind when he goes out late at night, I don't know what he's doing but when he gets home, he just wants to fuss and fight

and i'm feeling them  broken hearted blues, broken hearted blues, and I'm feeling them broken hearted blues,  broken hearted blues

and then one day i confronted him, i just couldn't take it no more i told him tell me whats going on or i'll be walking right out the door , the time has come to say good bye  to you , all good things must come to an end i won't be sing no broken hearted blues over you again chorus

I think I'm fed up with your messing and one day I will be teaching you a lesson , I won't be singing no broken hearted blues oh no
