Corey Cooke Julia and the guys never fail to please. It's been great fun to watch their musical evolution over the past several years and I'm always delighted with what they produce. This album once again combines Julia's whimsical style and fearless vocal talents with unexpected tones and chord changes that make the ears prick up and force you to crank the volume. A fan of tempo and time signature changes? Check out Saucepan for the win! Favorite track: Saucepan.

We're all gonna have a bit of a hard time, We're all gonna have a bit of a hard time, But I'll let you borrow mine, I'll let you borrow mine.

You're already there, you're already there, Sing through your heart tones You're already there, you're already there, Sing through your heart tones We're all gonna have a bit of a small peace, We're all gonna have a bit of a small peace, For those with the "most" and "least"- For those with the most and least.

Gonna keep it quiet... Wrapped in all the Wrapped in all the Wrapped in all the words you wish you said Wrapped in all the Wrapped in all the Wrapped in all the words you wish Words that you wish you said Killin' 'em with kindness 'til you're dead, Wrapped in all the words you wish you said, Maybe there's a way to change their mind, Just one more time. So the dream you're dreaming lingers on, When the radio plays that one song, Maybe there's a way to change their mind, Just one more time. Wrapped in all the, Wrapped in all the, Wrapped in all the words you wish you said, Wrapped in all the, Wrapped in all the, Wrapped in all the words you wish you said, Wrapped in all the, Wrapped in all the, Wrapped in all the words you wish Words that you wish you said.

I see you there, I see you there and I am listening, Listening as well as I can. I feel your heart, I feel your heart and I am holding all Holding all your joys and despairs, And all the times that seem unfair and fair, And all the times that seem too much to bear. Can't you tell? Can't you tell that there's a strong pulse, Strong pulse pulling us along, And I don't know, I don't know how to explain it: The best that I can do is this small song. The best that I can do is float along. The best that I can do is carry on. We're waking up, We're waking up from such a deep sleep, Deeper than the bottom of the sea. But picture this: Picture this, you are a feather, A feather on the edge of a bird's wing. I wonder what that bird would want to sing? Find the thought that makes you want to sing. Ooooooooooooooooooooo I wish you well. I see you there, I see you there and I am listening, listening as well as I can. Ooooooooooooooooooooo

Keep it quiet, quiet, Keep it quiet, quiet, Keep it quiet, quiet... And where was the word? For the pain, in the silence heard and Who was the voice? For the way to be healed again and What was the fight? That turned into a chance for life and How will I know I'm alright? I'm alright? Oooooohhhhhhhhhhhh

Remembering when you were a babe, Get a first breath, get a first name, Opening out, feeling alight What was the part that realized, Leaving it where we found it Leaving it where we found it Trying to learn how it all goes Catching a song, tapping your toes Sometimes we're right, sometimes we're wrong, But someday we all find that we're strong enough To keep it all where we found it Keep it all where we found it. Keep it all where we found it, Keep it all where we found it... Keep it all where we've always known it's been Always known it's been. Find it and find it and find it again. The curtain will call, it doesn't forget, It's made out of what can never be bet And we know the role, to tear it apart- Watch as a glow beams from the heart. Leaving it where we found it, Leaving it where we found it. Find it and find it again, Find it and find it again.

Mama Song 02:54
There was a message, But it came into question, Cause the folks who wrote it, Weren't part of the action. But the words were like poems, And the people who spoke 'em, Had the kindest intentions, Too bad that they tried to invent the truth. I just turn the radio on, Turn the radio off, Tune in, tune out, I just Turn the radio on, Turn the radio off, Tune in, tune out, I just Turn the radio on, Turn the radio off, Tune in, tune out, tuning Into what's new, But ain't nothing new. See I lost somebody When I felt it was too soon Then I had a strange dream, Where we met on the gray moon In a vegetable garden, And you said it seemed harder Than it actually was, So I flew back down To be with my sister and My Mama ma mamamama ma ma mamamama ma mamamama... whistling, general sounds of loving one's mama ;) ...with my mama ma mama

Couldn't we have it all? Winter, spring, summer, fall, Watching the days roll by, Couldn't we all abide? Shouldn't we make some plans? From mountains to coastal sands, Healing it mile by mile, Shouldn't we stay awhile? Aren't we, Aren't we, Aren't we? Aren't we, Aren't we, Aren't we now? Aren't we now? Wouldn't we make a match? For finding the final latch? Opening every door, Settling every score, Afterward and before, Weren't we meant to soar? Aren't we, Aren't we, Aren't we? Aren't we, Aren't we, Aren't we? Aren't we, Aren't we, Aren't we now? Aren't we now?

Try to find the word for what's to come Inside an elevator to the sun Standing on my tiptoes, hoping to catch the view. Cruising on through the edge of earth, Seeing what I left and for what it's worth, Tryin' to find a message from what's old and new. Putting off what we thought we could, Extending all our fingers at the bad and good, Trapped in a lonely past made out of fear. How many times can we solve for sum? Brand new equations and formulas? Only to have the calculations cleared? Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Printing out the paper that we spend, Getting even better at the game pretend Trying to own our time and own our place. But ask anybody who's lost a home If they made the choice to always roam, And then try to tell them how to keep their space, Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh This is how we're gonna roll the die, This is how we're gonna roll the die, Roll the die: never fearing. This is how we're gonna stay the course, This is how we're gonna stay the course, Stay the course: never veering. This is how we're gonna say goodbye, This is how we're gonna say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye: by disappearing, by disappearing. (Chris Blount): So, now this is how we say bye, Promise me you're never gonna say die, Not even if you start to feel a decline, Just know that we got a bind, your fight's mine You always said we were warriors by design Our memory's the only thing that defeats time So when you transitioned, I felt I lost vision, But you would visit in dreams, to me you gave mission Father, I did it, I really kept my promise, I paid you homage with all of my art, I kept it honest But it still required, cause I watched your drive Plus I got your eyes, how are you not alive? I know, it's hard to leave what you always knew, A new chapter opens up when the old one's through But let me tell you 'bout the one thing that I know is true: That if they take a look at me, they can still see you, go. And we never really say goodbye, Cause our families never did, So we are their history personified So every time we go to speak our mind they live. This is how we're gonna say goodbye This is how we're gonna say goodbye This is how we're gonna say goodbye This is how we're gonna say goodbye This is how we're gonna say goodbye This is how we're gonna say goodbye This is how we're gonna say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye
