Hi Y'all!

This is my first solo E.P.!!

After my wild time in The Peak Show (Atlantic Records), I spent a year in New York City, soul searched, wrote songs with Clark Dark, and learned to play the UKULELE!

princessFrank, my dear friend and the drummer on this album, liked my songs, and agreed to play drums for me! It is his booty-shakin' beats that inspired these versions of the songs. We are even more poppin' live.

I want to keep hanging out with you.

Thank you to Drew Sherrod and Broadstroke Records!

Track Name: 100 Proof
Verse I
I’ve been sittin on the front porch
steady thinking of the things I’d like to say
I’ve been ringin’ your request lines
trying to get you to come around the way

ooooh, I’m hip, babe
and I know all the games you play
but u gotta bring it real now
u gotta come correct one of these days

Prechorus I
and I’ve been dating so much
but I think I’m gonna stop
I’m meditating right here in the waiting room
ready to break you off…

I’m discreet; I’ll keep your secrets
so peek over your wall
and I been keeping up with waxes and pedicures
cuz there’s a chance you’ll call…..

Chorus I
I’m sprung on you
what’s a girl to do?
first you light the oven
then you let it cool

I’m sprung on you
what’s a girl to do?
come n be my savior, baby
be my parachute….

Verse II
I’m relying on the universe
you know I say a little prayer most every day
I’m a soulful little sistah
you best believe I’m gonna find 100 ways

Prechorus II
you should quit this whack resistance
you’ll soon be overcome
I’m only saying that magnets and gravity put out a force too strong

you’ll be rich; I’m generous when it comes to words of love
oh, I could never hold back my loquacity
and never could bite my tongue

Chorus II
I’m sprung on you
what’s a girl to do?
first you light the oven
then you let it cool

Sprung on you
what’s a girl to do?
be my perfect ending, honey
like in Hollywood…

::break::
::repeat a prechorus::

I’m sprung on you
What’s a girl to do?
Lookin’ for a strong man, baby
You’re 100 Proof.

::Verses I & II::
You’re my Sunday morning lay in bed
The gentle breeze around my head
A picture perfect paradise
I’m feeling glad to be alive, I

Search to find the nouns and verbs
As I run my fingers down your curves
I couldn’t ask for more than this
The only trouble is you don’t exist on this…

::Chorus I::
Lonely night in Bedford-Stuyvesant
What I’m dreamin’ is more vivid than reality
When the morning comes around
Brush my shoulders off
Today may be when our paths cross…

::Verses III & IV::
So I
Walk the streets and avenues
In the hopes I’ll catch a glimpse of you..
What I would give for goodness sake
To see your face while I’m awake, then

I would know that all is well
I could rest my head and let time tell
So until the day we meet I’ll
See you smiling while I’m sleeping in my..

::Repeat Chorus::
::break::

::le bridge::
I got my head in the clouds,
But I ain’t lookin’ down
It won’t be long until this longing has ceased.

I got the freedom to love
and the space to open up
en route to who the future will be…….

::Repeat Chorus::

::le end::
Track Name: Stuck!
**$tuck**

::Verses I & II ::
Baby, I get so lost
I can’t stop thinking about your touch
I need ten dollars
You give me a buck
And it makes me stuck…it makes me stuck…

I been gambling
I’ve got my cards down
You say, “not never, but baby, not now”
This game we’re playin’, I’ve got no luck
And it makes me stuck

::Prechorus & Choru$ I::
Baby, baby, since I met u I can’t think of nothing else
All u gotta do is look my way and my heart starts to melt
If u want this lovin’, then come get some, I been savin’ up
I sure haven’t been tryin too hard to hide that you’re the one I want …
I’m stuck!
I get so stuck!

::Verses III & IV::
Baby you’ve got me drinkin’
I freeze up…so cold
You leave me speechless
I’d like to break through
Break through this weakness
But I’m too stuck….

::Prechorus & Choru$ II::
As I stand here, in your line of fire
Slowly burning in this desire
I need you to take me higher
Don’t leave me stuck….
Don’t leave me stuck….

I see the way that you’re lookin at me – you’re whispering it’s still on
Wouldn’t it be such a relief to spend some time alone?
I ain’t goin’ too far, I’m gonna stay and I’ll wait, I wanna sing for your love
Can’t you hear the joy I’m bringin? you make me feel it, help me, boy!
I’m stuck!
I get so stuck!
Don’t leave me stuck!
Track Name: Butterflies
**Butterflies**


::Verses I &II::
he comes around
barefoot softly through the house
he lays me down
that boy is somethin’ else

he brings a symphony
speaks directly to a hidden little piece of me
he’s got the qualities
he turns me on and on and on with physicality

::Chorus I::
butterflies in my eyes…..
i think about u all the time
and I’m inclined to design
a union of our separate lives

::Verse III::
he’s into Marvin Gaye…
he gets me revving
with his gentlemanly compliments
his moves are slippery
i never fell in love so easily

::Prechorus I::
ooh I think about u constantly
i make it easy to run into me
open a window, so if you should walk by
then u can peek in to say hi…

butterflies in my eyes….::repeat chorus::

::Verse IV::
he comes around
an’ i got it made in sunrays
he lays me down
and I’m warm in the shade.

::Prechorus II::
you’re in ubiquity.
like a mural in my memory.
a summer breeze
that makes me feel fine
you are often-wants and lullabies…

::Chorus III::
Butterflies in my eyes
I think about u all the time
and I’m inclined to design
a little bit of paradise…

::Outro::
ready for your love….
steady dial me up ….
Track Name: Flashback
✈★Flashback★✈


::Verse I::
I ran away to a distant place
I’m using Sherry Smith’s pots and plates
A small box of photographs
Another bachelorette bubble bath

I tried hard to bleach you, babe
But these feelings won’t be erased
Another drag on a cigarette
Another failed attempt to forget

::Prechorus I::
Summer, Winter, Fall or Spring
Oh the joy your love would bring
And I’m calling you….I’m calling you…

::Chorus I::
Can you hear my voice above the sound
Of the warm rain falling down?
Can you feel my love each time you breathe
Or does it blow away with the leaves?
Can you hear the rhythm of my heart
I feel u still while we’re apart
It’s all heaven in your face, I see…
Can you flashback to me?

::Verse II::
A phone call in the middle of the night
I see your name in the menu light
You can always come to me
In your emotional emergency

::Prechorus II::
Just the minute I let go
Oh, your love begins to show
And I’m calling you…You’re calling me…

::Repeat Chorus::

::Verse III::
Nobody loves me like you do
I wait around for your “let’s go” cue
I turn out the lights alone
And say this prayer for home sweet home…
