Just Another Never Mind

(words & music:Chris Leib 2014, Whatsername Music)

(It’s impossible)
There’s no other way around
(It’s improbable)
No other way to get it off the
Ground you if you do it wrong
I find that I can’t sing my song
Telemarket your ideas
You’ll find me floating in a field of . . .

(Oh, never mind)
I’d tell you but then I’d have to kill you (Oh, never mind)
It doesn’t matter anyway
(Oh, never mind)
I’d tell you but then I’d have to thrill you
(Oh, never mind)
It’s just another never mind

It’s contrary)
Just can’t find my way past it
(My rosary)
Pray for answers I can’t find the
Way to make a simple thing
extraordinarily will sing
After all this contrived hype,
II think it’s time that I get on my

(It’s impossible)
There’s no other way around

Alone

(words & music: Tim Barrage 2013 Candy Songs)

There was a time, at that first glance.
That I was sure, there was a chance.
The light of love, truly devine.
Without a doubt, you would be mine.

Then came a day, you chose to betray.
What did I do, to cause you to stray.

That day was so dark, got nothing to say.
A hole in my heart, the worst ever day.

The times they are a changing,
and you've been making plans.
Times they are a changing,
and you left me to stand alone, alone alone
You left me to stand alone

Now comes a time, I look back and say.
I had it reversed, It's better this way.

That night was so bright,
can you hear what I say
No hole in my heart,
the best ever day.

The times they are a changing,
and you've been making plans.
Times they are a changing,
and you left me to stand alone, alone, alone.
You left me to stand alone, and I thank you
yes you, left me alone, now leave me alone.

Johanna Rita Rhonda

(words & music: Rob Hermanowski 2012 Kalion Music)

Johanna Rita Rhonda
(I know it’s crazy but I’m feeling kinda fond of)
Johanna Rita Rhonda
(All day long)
Johanna Rita Rhonda
(To be with her I would row across the pond)
Johanna Rita Rhonda
(All day long)

Forget all you’ve seen or heard
She’s a different sort of bird
Spinning like a wheel on fire
Burning with a strange desire
No true words but not a liar
Enigmatic mystifier

Her voice heard above the hum
An exotic requiem
Is this some fantastic game
A memory, a dream sustained?
I’ve known women wild and tame
But none as classic as the one named

All you got is your superstition
At the end of the day
All you need is your intuition
Won’t you come out and play?

Far &Low

(words & music: Tim Barrage 2013 Candy Songs)

I have sought, far and wide.
I have sought high and low.
Looking for a never ending love,
looking for the one for me, the one for me.

The sparkle of, the sparkle of your eyes.
The soft caress, of a caring voice.
I see a soul, that I want to hold,
I see a bar raised for me, raised for me.

You amaze me, amaze me, that's what you do.
You amaze me, amaze me, that's why I choose.

Might as well, throw it all away.
Always taking chances, maybe not today.
Remembering when we had dreams.
I thought of you, your love it seems,
As if life, as if life, as if life could be so sweet.

You amaze me, amaze me, that's what you do.
You amaze me, amaze me, that's why I choose.
You amaze me, amaze me, that's what you do.
You amaze me, amaze me, that's why I choose...you

Of You

(words & music: Chris Leib 2014, Whatsername Music)

I live my life according to plan
Then one day, it all gets jammed
To the surprise of everyone,
Again my heart blots out the sun
But I move on, get on with the scene
My happiness lies in a dream.
I’ll prevail, despite the odds;
if I can just get away from the sods

I try and I try, but it just won’t come
And there’s no power underneath the sun
to make it all bearable to think.
There’s no way to get rid of the stink
Of You

The time will come to furnish these things
of cabbages, of ships, and kings
To take a spin on the roundabout
of life, where we can scream and shout

My life is played out on the screen
Box office bomb, or so it seems
Held over for just one more day
To see if I can finally have my way

I live my life as best I can
And hope someday I can lift the ban
That surrounds my harried heart,
Give myself another start

The King of What Comes Next

(words & music:Chris Leib 2014, Whatsername Music)

Out of country, out of time
Out of patience, out of mind
Quietly brilliant, in an offhand way
Here tomorrow, gone today

He will watch, as time goes by
Shuffling through, don’t ask why
Gather ‘round, for a sight to see
An uncrowned king of what kind

He’s the King of What Comes Next
He’s the Lord of Second Best
He’s the one that she runs from
He’s the last of what’s come undone
A time for pleasant things
Gives way to what the day will bring
A smile for everyone
Except the lonely one

What has come, will come again
so the beginning is just the end
But to him it’s just not right
He futily goes to put up a fight

My Blue Mood

(words & music: Rob Hermanowski 2010 Kalion Music)

I got a story, don’t know where to start
A good beginning is my cold black heart
But that’s not true
It’s just my attitude
I’m telling you
It’s only my blue mood

I got my shelter from the wind and storm
I got my comfort, keeps my dry and warm
You gotta do
What you gotta do
But here’s a clue
Regarding my blue mood.

You better learn to keep your feelings in tune
That is all I can say
You give it all away to someone in June
Heartbroken in May

I’ve lived a life that’s filled with vice and sin
But that’s not why I’m in the state I’m in
I’m not that crude
And I’ve been misconstrued
You might conclude
It’s only my blue mood

So that’s my story, even some of it’s true
It’s been my pleasure to share with you
My attitude
Regarding my blue mood
Hope you won’t sue
Me over my blue mood
I’m telling you
It’s only my blue mood

I Say Hey

(words & music: Tim Barrage, 2013 Candy Tunes)

I say hey, what's your name
I say hey, what's your name
I say hey, hey, hey, baby what's your name

I say hey, won't you stay
I say hey, won't you stay
I say hey, hey, hey, baby won't you stay

I say hey, what's your game
I say hey, what's your game
I say hey, hey, hey, baby what's your game

I say hey, hey, hey
I say hey, hey, hey
I say hey, hey, hey, baby what's your game

I say hey, what's your name
I say hey, what's your name
I say hey, hey, hey, baby what's your

Hope You Find Your Way

(words & music: Chris Leib 2014, Whatsername Music)

Incendiary bouts of love
Create empty feelings of
What was there, though, once was good
Was something that never could

Years pass away so quickly by
Intrigued by the where and the why
Could I travel in time and space
I’d place a bet on this lover’s race

What comes, must go
Rules don’t make themselves, you know

Decisions can ruin a perfect thing
(Hope you find your way)
But who’s to say what love will bring
(Hope you find your way)

What comes, must go
Rules don’t make themselves, you know
The road is rough and surely long
but a chance is in this song
With each and every dawning day
Hope you find your way
I hope you find your way

The Colours Inside

(words & music: Chris Leib 2014, Whatsername Music)

I think I thought therefore I am
at least that’s what I think
too much thought, causes me to pause
I think I need a drink
What’s the point in going all the way
when you only take it back?
I know, but I see the wheels turn
and focus on what you lack

When the fog clears my eyes
I can see right through your disguise . . .
To the colours inside
The colours inside
Place a call but no one seems to hear
a cellarful of noise
a meeting called to order
silence is your choice
I jump back down, I turn around, all the things that I’ve found
my head’s starting to spin
Up to bat for another swing
but I can’t seem to win Everything’s coming up roses
What you have us believe
But I can only take small doses
Before I wanna leave . . .
Before I wanna leave . . .

One More Second Chance

(words & music: Rob Hermanowski 2012 Kalion Music)

I could not foresee
Where I was meant to be
And I could not define
Just what was on my mind

A different time
Familiar place
Sometimes I slip into a trance
A look sublime
The fall from grace
I need just one more second chance

I don’t even know
The things that I don’t know
And I can’t understand
The cosmic upper hand

A pantomime
The sham embrace
It’s two steps back with each advance
A petty crime
The crimson face
I need just one more second chance

You think you figured it out
You think you gathered all the clues
You think there’s no way you can lose

But if you figured it out
Then tell me what else can you do?
When you turn up with an empty heart
Right back at the start

Bump

(words and music: Chris Leib 2014, Whatsername Music)

Stuck here waiting for the light to change
Diesel, perfume, a passing train
Can’t recall the last thing I heard
A truck’s horn, maybe a bird?

But I remember the words you said
Rub my eyes and scratch my head
Turn, Look back and you’re asleep
Rudely awakened by a rusting jeep

BUMP!
I can’t believe this is happening to me!
BUMP!
NO, OFFICER, I WASN’T ASLEEP – I SWEAR!
BUMP!
Oh, I hope this guy has insurance . . .
BUMP!
That’s the last time I daydream!

Long ago in your gallery
I played my part for all to see
A gentleman so suave and smart
True connoisseur of life and art

Hippy dress that you gently sway
Unknown to us you made your way
Didn’t see you ‘til it was too late
Covered with everything on your plate

BUMP!
No, no, no, it’s alright. I like Bris. Honest!
BUMP!
it matches the Degas, don’t you think?

Oh no, look at what I’ve done
Fallen for another one
Something tells me, she’s the one
For me . . .
For me . . .
She’s the one . . .
For me . . .

Making my way home after work
Bad day, ‘cause the boss is a jerk
Pissed off, senseless and confused
Sustained by just the thought of you

Walk through the door and stumble ‘round
Bang my knee as I hit the ground
You take my hand, you help me up
I’m so lucky – into you I bumped!

BUMP!
I don’t know what I did to deserve you
BUMP!
But I’m sure glad I did it
BUMP!
I love you – and you love me
BUMP!
You’re the better part of me

It Sucks Not Having You Near

(words & music: Tim Barrage & Dianna Carr-Joseph, 2013 FloozyTunes)

It sucks not having you near,
I wish you were here.
I think about you night and day,
I know we're headed the right way.

As we lived our lives apart,
there was always a connection.
A simple re-direction,
well it happened once or twice.
We now see eye to eye
without the slightest fiction.
We each have an affliction,
that without you we would die.

Alone I sit and think of you.
Days of old and days anew.
When we first met, and merged again,
Hearts still afire like way back when.

These days are fun and filled with joy.
Happy story of girl meets boy.
Distance is the enemy here.
Oh how it sucks not having you near.
