A slinky jazz ode to messed-up relationships.

Lyrics

Obsessive Behavior 

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

I want you/

I want you/ scat/

to see me/

the way I know you love to do/

 

I need you/

I need you/ Scat/

I’m dependent on your safety/

what would you have me do? /

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

My anxiety is a wound I just can’t fix for you/

It’s the way I was made, that is true/

 

You hate how/

You hate how/ scat/

I have my own ruse/

for keeping secrets from you/

 

I fight you/

I fight you/ scat/


from seeing my true self/

It’s ugly and blue/

 

I hate how you relate me to the Taming of the Shrew/

Shouldn’t that just give you a clue? /

 

You like to say we’re held together with glue/

That’s just a cliché/

Why do I have to love you? /

 

I hang out/

I hang out/ scat/

with your crew/

just because I wanna impress you/

 

I see you/

I see you/ scat/

In my mind, all the time/

I just wish I knew/

 

If you loved me the same way/

Otherwise, you’d leave me today/

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

My anxiety is a wound I just can’t fix for you/

It’s the way I was made, that is true/

 

I’m told that I need to be done with you/

Maybe if I just give it time, you would say it too/

 

But that’s not happening/ scat/

I just need to let go of you/

I just need to let go of you/

I just need to let go of you/

Scat/

Story

A lush arrangement that draws inspiration from classic Hollywood.

Lyrics

 

Marilyn, American 

 

Verse:              

I am envious/

To be there/ 

In blazing blue skies/

Every day, overtime/

 

I have a desire/

To witness it all/

The bustle on the streets/

The people and magazines/

 

Looking airbrushed/                

In the magic/

Of this land/

Everything’s damned/ 

 

It’s twisted/

Not perfect/

I don’t care/

I just want to be there/

 

Chorus:

With Marilyn/                          

American/

Beauty of the west coast/

Alive dreams and sunshine/

Be like Marilyn, American/

I got Katherine on my mind/

Ava is divine/

 

I’m searching/

for comfort and warmth/

I’m not getting it here/

This boredom is an overflow/

 

Of emotions/

that wait and wait/

for my time to come/

I am not done/

 

With my life/

It’s beginning/

Somewhere new/

Where everything’s blue/

 

In the sunshine/

of California/

I feel it near/

 

I just want to be there/

 

Chorus:

 With Marilyn/

 American/

Tired of the northwest/

Too cold and desolate/

Be like Marilyn, American/

Watching Bogie on the screen/

Living in serenity

 Bridge:

I feel it near/ Scat 

I feel it near/

I feel it near/ 

I feel it near/

 

Chorus:

Marilyn, American/ 

Ready to begin anew/

My tight hold long gone now/

Be like Marilyn, American/

I’m now the one on the stage/

 I’m living in my new age/ 

Marilyn, American/ repeat

 

Scat

Story

A minimalist arrangement for a fresh voice with an innovative writing style.

Lyrics

Do it Once 

 

You do it once/

Then you do it twice/

Then you think that I want it all night/

 

Then you always say/

That I wanna play/

Your games that you dictate today/

 

Then you like to dream/

That I’m your beauty queen/

But that’s just a fantasy/

 

But then you smooth talk/

With your swagger walk/

Then I’m at a complete loss/

 

For what to do when you wanna come through/

My door/

Where I’m not answering for anyone, anymore/

 

Scat/

 

You like the chase/

And you like the taste/

Of my sweat dripping down my waist/

 

Then you breathe real hard/

While you face your scars/

Of the messed-up world you left behind and blurred/

 

While you slurp ice cream/

I think I’m gonna scream/

At your nonchalant inconsistency/

 

Then finally/

I’m running free/

From your brooding eyes/

And your crazy lies/

 

What am I gonna do when you wanna come through/

My door/

Where I’m confused about not answering, should I? /

Could I? / 

 

Scat/

 

You do it once/

You do it once/

Enough time to make me regret getting into bed with you/

Scat/

You do it twice/

You do it twice/

Enough time to make me think fool on you and on me/

Scat/

 

What am I gonna do, gonna do, gonna do/

When you wanna come through/

My door, door, door/repeat 4x

Scat/ 

 

You do it once/

You do it twice/

Then you think that I want it all night/
