Track Name: This Is It
This Is It

This is it
You’ve found yourself another
This it it, for you

I don’t mind, but still it’s hard to fight it
This war inside my head
Switching on and off the light won’t kill it
So I’m giving up instead
And just pretend I’m dead

So this is it
You’ve found yourself another
This is it, for you
This is it
There ain’t no easy lovers
This is it, for now

I know I changed of course I did, who doesn’t
So don’t tell me you’re still the same
All those lies will never close the distance
So we go our separate ways
But for you it’s me to blame

This is it
I’ve found myself another
This is it, for me
This is it
There ain’t no easy lovers
This is it, for now

I know we’ll find our way
I know we’ll find our way
I know we’ll find our way
I know we’ll find our way

This is it
Looks like we both just ache for changes
This is it
When all the rules are meant for breaking
This is it
There’s a whole lot I’ve been taking
This is it



Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Go
GO

Life keeps you running
There’s nothing’s here to hold you, hold you back
All that you want is
Mostly found on another track

No hidden secrets
Just believe in who and what you are
Turn on the engine
And ride away

The further you go
The closer you get
To where you hope to be
Just haven’t got there yet

My lazy angel
The fat guy with wings drinking beer
Bragging ‘bout flying
Least it’s on his mind

The further you go
The closer you get
To where you hope to be
Just haven’t got there yet

Just get the monkey off your back
Get the monkey off your back
Get the monkey off your back
Get the monkey off your back, back, back

You better keep going
Keep going
Better keep going
Keep it going, going, going

Go



Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Suitcase
Suitcase

You’re living from a suitcase
Streets keep walking away from you
A maze of your mistakes
Drown it with a drink or two

How can you say you’re fine
When all you do is whine

Just take one by one
Learn how to live, go out, have fun
I know it’s not an easy thing to do
But better than giving up on you

You’re standing by the green light
Start walking when it turns red
And wonder with surprise
As a car leaves you dead

How can you say you’re dying?
Before you started trying

So take one by one
Learn how to live, go out, have fun
I know it’s not an easy thing to do
But better than giving up on you

So now you’re finally asking why
You gotta live before you die

You’re living from a suitcase

You wonder why you fail
When all you do is wail

Take one by one
Learn how to live, go out, have fun
I know it’s not an easy thing to do
But better than giving up on you



Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Some Days
Some Days

Here I am but who am I?
Digging holes to find the sky
I don't know which way is up
Then the changes roar like thunder
Pull me from this cloud I'm under
Suddenly it's raining luck

Here I go again
Round and round and then
Who knows what tomorrow brings?

Some days fly by without a sound
Some days you can hear for miles around
Now how 'bout you?

In Echo Park a wealthy man
Told me life ain't worth a damn
And love is worth even less
A homeless guy said “Why?”
“Don’t let it pass you by”
"Believe and you'll find success"

Here I go again
Round and round and then
Who knows what tomorrow brings?

Some days fly by without a sound
Some days you can hear for miles around
Now how 'bout you?
How ‘bout you?
How ‘bout you?

Here I go again
Round and round and then, you know
Here I go again
Round and round and then, you know

Some days, how ‘bout you
Some days, how ‘bout you
Some days
Some days

Lyrics by Reto Burrell & David Campbell Jr.
Track Name: Is It True
Is It True

Can anybody give a reason?
Can anybody here explain?
Why is nothing breathing?
And when did it change?

Is It true?
Are we just blue?
Will we undo all the things we've done wrong
Or just carry on?

Pity ain't built for watching
Hard just to look outside anymore
Stay at home, shed our skins
Behind the door

Is It true?
Are we just blue?
Will we undo all the things that are gone?

Is It true?
Are we just blue?
Will we undo all the things we've done wrong
Or just carry on

What we do best is wasting time
Standing still and acting fine
Put decisions in a line
What are we waiting for?
Are we waging our own war?

Is it true?
Tell me, is it true?
Did we get blue?
In reading the signs

Is it true?
Tell me, is it true?
Did me and you
Misread the signs

Lyrics by Reto Burrell & David Campbell Jr.
Track Name: Coming Home
Coming Home

There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you
Don’t mind the weary weather
As if I ever do

I hit the road, driving with the headlights on
All through the night after playing at a one-man-show
Smiles and cigarettes lit up the crowd
Still feel the smoke itching in my throat

There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you
There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you

Damn hotel rooms, keeping me away from sleep
As other men’s ghosts keep teasing me
Who’s that girl laying by my side?
She looks like you, but ain’t alive

There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you
There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you

Love you, miss you, love you

Here in my car, is where I feel safe and sound
Count down the miles, rolling homebound
I’m on a road that leads to you
Yeah I’m on my way, I’m on my way

There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you
There’s nothing better
Than coming home to you


Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Heart & Bones
Heart & Bones

Break my bones and break my neck
Clear it out, forget we met
Use your words to hurt and kill
Leave me on my own

Cut off pieces make me bleed
My love for you is a disease
I’m giving my last smile to you
Use it as your own

But don’t break my heart
It’s all that’s left from you
Don’t break my heart
It’s all I have

I’m trying to catch some answers here
Will you reply or disappear?
Let me down on memory lane
Of what was or could have been

Don’t break my heart
It’s all that’s left from you
Don’t break my heart
It’s all I need

Don’t break my heart
It’s all that’s left for me
Don’t break my heart
It’s all I have

So, if this is it for you
What about me
So, if this is it for you
But what about me

But don’t break my heart
It’s all that’s left
Don’t break my heart

Don’t break my heart
Break my bones, just do it now
But don’t break my heart
Use your words to kill me slow
But don’t break my heart
Call me names, now I don’t mind
But don’t break my heart
It’s all that’s left… from you
Don’t break my heart



Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Uninvited Honesty
Uninvited Honesty

I’m fighting back the tears
That seep into my soul
You push me to the ground
There’s nowhere left to go
All these words tell the truth
You oughta know

All you say looks blue
When you’re really talking red
Running around in circles
Repeating all you’ve said
All these words tell the truth
You oughta know

You put me into costumes
Feel way overdressed
This clown lost his smile
He couldn’t take the rest
All these words tell the truth
You oughta know

Turning ‘round and ‘round on this carousel
And we’re riding down to the wishing well
Every song I sing is a part of me
And what’s left, is uninvited honesty

I’m not here to guide your life
Or set a time to die
You stab me in the back
And just I wonder why
All these words tell the truth
You oughta know
These words tell the truth

Turning ‘round and ‘round on this carousel
And we’re riding down to the wishing well
Every song I sing is a part of me
And what’s left, is uninvited honesty

It’s time to turn the page
This picture’s way too small
Call it revolution
Paste it to the wall
My words still tell the truth
You oughta know
These words, the truth

Turning ‘round and ‘round on this carousel
And we’re riding down to the wishing well
Every song I sing is a part of me
And what’s left, is uninvited honesty
And what’s left, is uninvited honesty
And what’s left, is uninvited honesty


Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Dancing To The Rhythm Of Rain (with Tift Merritt)
Dancing To The Rhythm Of Rain

Today’s perfect to stay in bed
Talk to no one and hide my head
Hear the rain pouring down
Singing songs for me

Don’t watch the clock, don’t care ‘bout time
Just do what I want, feel alright
I wish you were still here with me
Drinking sweet wine

Let’s keep on dancing
Dancing to the rhythm of rain
Remember all the love songs
Dancing down memory lane
To the rhythm of, rhythm of rain

How would it be, if you still were here
You’re long gone but I feel you’re near
This world just had no place for us
It took you away from me

Don’t ask if I’m still angry now
Sometimes desperate, sometimes down
Today’s my birthday
So let your love be rain for me

Let’s keep on dancing
Dancing to the rhythm of rain
Remember all our love songs
Dancing down memory lane
Keep on dancing
Dancing to the rhythm of rain
Don’t worry ‘bout the sad songs
Down memory lane

To the rhythm of, rhythm of rain

Just keep on dancing
To the rhythm of rain
We keep on dancing
Down memory lane
We’re still dancing
To the rhythm of rain
Keep on dancing




Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Dirty Little Secrets
Dirty Little Secrets

Dig a hole
Bury all the truth
Who will know?
Wash your dirty hands
And wipe them dry on someone else’s back
That sleazy smile

Keep it deep inside
All your dirty deeds
Don’t relight
The sins are still warm
And then gone like lightning in the sky

Dirty lil’ secrets, dirty lil’ secrets
We carry around
Dirty lil’ secrets, dirty lil’ secrets
That can’t be found

Tell me how long do you think it takes
Before you spill the vows of your secrecy

Dirty lil’ secrets, dirty lil’ secrets
We carry around
Dirty lil’ secrets, dirty lil’ secrets
That can’t be found

Dirty lil’ secrets, dirty lil’ secrets
We carry around
Dirty lil’ secrets, dirty lil’ secrets
That can’t be found



Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Set It All On Fire
Set It All On Fire

Why don’t things fit in the first place?
Is this the flavor of life?
I feel the sun on the back of my neck
But all this shit still sticks in my mind

Set it all on fire

I cried all the tears out of me
Still the sadness stays
Fighting for Rome won’t change anything
So I surrender and light a match

Set it all on fire
Set it all on fire
Set it all on fire

Set it all on fire
Set it all on fire
Set it all on fire



Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Not As Cool As L.A.
Not As Cool As L.A.

All of the pirates haunting on Sunset
Killing for sushi and wine
Retired drunks with cinnamon smiles
Abandoned ships in decline

New in town all on your own
Not part of any scheme
You’re an original of a hundred clones
An anchor against the stream

Yeah, you’re good, you’re doing well
You got skills your songs can tell
But boy, you’re not as cool as L.A.

Gotta have swag and learn how to brag
Sell junk as if it is gold
It’s not what you are, it’s who you know
In this circus of Rock’n’Roll

Yeah, you’re good, you’re doing well
You got skills your songs can tell
But boy, you’re not so keen on L.A.

Hey boy, yeah you boy
You’re good, yeah you really are
Your songs might hit one day
You’re cool, but not as cool as L.A.

You’re not as cool as L.A.
Not as cool as L.A.
Come back another day


Music & Lyrics by Reto Burrell
Track Name: Girls & Gold
Girls & Gold


Both of them can change
Both of them can shine
And when they’re hanging around your neck
Both of them look fine

But that ain’t always what you get

They can turn your head
They can make you spin
Sometimes I swear, this precious pair
Are more alike than twins

They’ll work you up into a sweat
Then fill you with regret

Girls and gold
Are beautiful but they can be so cold
Easy to love but hard to hold

Always chasing time
It flies when you have fun
There’s time when I have flown so high
I could have kissed the sun

Two things always pulled me down
Till you turned me around

Girls and gold
Are beautiful but they can be so cold
You showed me that we can break the mold
Easy to love but hard to hold

And now it all makes sense
The way you’ve changed my mind
And I have no defence
Your love wins every time

Two things always dragged me down
Till you turned me around

Girls and gold
Are beautiful but they can be so cold
You showed me that we can break the mold
Easy to love but hard to hold
Girls and gold
Girls and gold
