    Everything In Good Time is a story about letting what will be, come to be. Not rushing to get there and missing the sights. Getting it right vs. getting it now. Not forcing a result. It is the quintessential story a parent tells a child: “Que sera, sera”. It is a dedication to two great ladies, my Mom, and Nana, who guided me through life and answered the questions of an inquisitive, precocious, and artistic child. My songs are reflections, observations, and dedications. It took me 4 studio albums to finally have my voice and my music captured the way they should be captured. I hope that you will enjoy this journey that I have created, culminating over 20 years of songwriting.

When I was little I couldn't wait to grow up Wanted to strut like the older girls and wear make u-u-up Wear tight jeans and minis like the big girls did Go on dates and have a boy to kiss I used to watch, as they’d go out Sit by the window, fold my arms and pout (I used to ask) Will I be pretty will I be tall Will I be the girl who has it all, like some girls do Will I be rich will I go far Will I marry will I be a star, Can you tell me true? And Nana said: Don't worry about the future just worry about the now Just relax, things will work out the way they should. (Better than you hoped they would) Don't worry about when don't worry bout the why Just have patience child, sit back and enjoy the ride, You can't rush your life Just. Trust in the Lord above, he has a plan in mind (1,2) Everything in good time When I left school I set out to make my way I auditioned for shows, but I had bills to pay I worked odd jobs and tried to write some songs In a city full of people, where did I belong? The girls around me getting married off I would brood in the corner, I would scoff Will I be picked will I be left I don't want to give up on my dreams just yet Will I make it will I go far Will I marry will I be a star, am I gonna regret? And Nana said: Don’t fret bout the future just enjoy the now Don't worry bout the things that don’t work out The way you thought the should, it will all be good Don't worry about who don't worry about the why Don't worry if you fail gotta go out and try, let me see that smile Just trust in the lord above, you will find love, it’ll be just fine (1, 2, 3) Everything in good time One day I wasn't looking and there he was I had to laugh I didn't question it because I looked at him just as he looked at me And I smiled it was destiny. Like Nana told me So here I am finally grown I've got a few little ones of my own Who come to me for advice They want the who's the what's and whys They gather round and hug my knees Hey mama can you tell me pretty please When I grow up what am I gonna be? Will I be pretty will I be tall Will I be smart will I have it all like some girls do? Will I be rich will I be a star Will I marry will I go far can you tell me true And I smile, I shouldn’t be surprised because they're their mama's child (And then I tell them) Don't worry about the future just worry about the now Just relax, things will work out the way they should. (Better than you hoped they would) Don't worry about when don't worry bout the why Just have patience child, sit back and enjoy the ride, You can't rush your life just trust in the Lord above he has a plan devised Everything will come to, everything in good time

And If I’m wrong, let me be the one to take the blame And If I’m wrong, let me be the one who is ashamed And If I’m wrong, And If I’m wrong, At least I took the chance to try And If I’m wrong, And If I’m wrong, You can pin it all on me as my fault I say it’s better To take a chance than do nothing at all I’d rather fly And if I don’t succeed and I fall You can blame me if you don’t see That there was a shot that it would be alright But it’s ok, give me leeway To try out my new wings and take flight And If I’m wrong, let me be the one to take the blame And If I’m wrong, so be it things can never stay the same And If I’m wrong, And If I’m wrong, At least I took the chance to try And If I’m wrong, And If I’m wrong, But if I get it right it’s justified If I worry about what others say Nothing gets accomplished anyway If I let myself be paralyzed by fright Can’t let others dictate what I do Can’t be restrained from trying something new My life would be a could have not a might Point and laugh or think of me the fool I’ve never been one to play by the rules You can’t go forward If you’re always held back by the past You can’t make progress If you focus on the mistakes from the last And If I’m wrong, And If I’m wrong, So be it things can never be the same And If I’m wrong, And If I’m wrong, Let me be the one to take the blame

Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Ocean waves that calm me, It’s the perfect remedy It’s pleasant by the Point, brings out the best in me Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Boats sail through the inlet children laugh and play Music from the boardwalk bars soundtrack for the day I hear the seagulls laughing and then I do the same Pink and purple sunsets Background for the (bay) Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Ocean waves that calm me, It’s the perfect remedy It’s pleasant by the Point, brings out the best in me Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea I run the boards of Belmar down through Spring lake and back again The surfers chase the perfect wave Blue umbrellas everywhere And as the sunlight changes from bright day into night A red moon rises from the sea What a perfect sight Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Ocean waves that calm me, It’s the perfect remedy It’s pleasant by the Point, brings out the best in me Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Watch the pipers run together against the waves on the sand Fisherman try to make their catch Kids collect shells in their hands Parasails fly overhead Umbrellas left and right Paradise by day Paradise by night Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Ocean waves that calm me, It’s the perfect remedy It’s pleasant by the Point, brings out the best in me Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Every year as the summer wanes A little part of me dies I try to mentally photograph the pink and golden skies Until next summer comes again I’ll have to bide my time My little Jersey Paradise Forever in my mind Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Ocean waves that calm me, It’s the perfect remedy It’s pleasant by the Point, brings out the best in me Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea Belmar Breezes, and Avon by the Sea

Be careful what you do, be careful what you show Everything you do, everywhere you go Be careful what you say, be careful where you go Everything is publicly recorded you’re on video Big brother is watching you And big sister, too That waitress that you yell at somenone’s filming you Don’t hit another car and try to flee the scene As sure as There’s cameras everywhere in between Everywhere you look, everywhere you go you can’t get away, they’re always in the know So think before you do, think before you show Nothing slips through the cracks when you’re on video What you do today will be posted on the internet In the age of instagram no one will soon forget You’ll never get away with it So please don’t even try That argument went viral and got a million likes Be careful what you do, be careful what you show Everything you do, everywhere you go Be careful what you say, be careful where you go Everything is publicly recorded you’re on video No one’s life is every private Someone’s got your every move That secret you’re confiding will be showing on the news With twitter, blogs and Facebook daily posts and feeds Armed with just an iPhone Can unravel and evil scheme Be careful what you do, be careful what you show Everything you do, everywhere you go Be careful what you say, be careful where you go Everything is publicly recorded you’re on video Everywhere you look, everywhere you go you can’t get away, they’re always in the know So think before you do, think before you show Nothing slips through the cracks when you’re on video

They say in love 1 and 1 make 2 That one completes the other, but not with you Instead of pleasure you bring me pain I feel like I’m going insane You can’t control what isn’t yours And yet I’m under your thumb I vow again to walk out that door Yet everytime he calls I come I’m walking on a leash and he’s pulling me I’ve got to find a way to break free Cuz your love hurts It stings like a bumble bee Yeah your love hurts There’s really nothing in it for me Yeah your love hurts It’s only going to make me drown Yeah your love hurts I can’t swim to the surface when you’re holding me down Instead of give and take it’s push and pull And both are coming from you My voice has been silenced my body has been broken I live in fear of what you will do I cover up the bruises and smile away the pain Slip under the covers hope it all goes away The best thing that you can do for me Is let me be Cuz your love hurts It stings like a bumble bee Yeah your love hurts There’s really nothing in it for me Yeah your love hurts It’s only going to make me drown Yeah your love hurts Your love hurts I heard the sirens blare and I didn’t run for cover Didn’t heed the warnings when I took you for my lover In the midst of a storm that will never be over I brace for the final blow I cover up the bruises and smile away the pain Slip under the covers hope it all goes away The best thing that you can do for me Is let me be Cuz your love hurts It stings like a bumble bee Yeah your love hurts There’s really nothing in it for me Yeah your love hurts It’s only going to make me drown Yeah your love hurts I can’t swim to the surface when you’re holding me down

Saying everything Im not supposed to say Getting way too close on our first date Where is my manners I should let you lead But I'm losing all sense of decency Jumpin in head first I'm gonna dive in Water looks so good I'm ready for a swim I want to hurry up and get to the good part hit fast forward to where it starts I can't control myself Make a fool of myself I'm just a mess around you Nothing left to lose I'm really into you Accidental bump, or maybe I meant to brush your shirt Talking when you talk, no baby you go first Have I let the secret out of the bag Can’t contain my excitement is becoming a drag There ain't no turning back There ain't no cure for that I'm just a mess around you Nothing left to lose I'm really into you I’m trying to restrain but its no use I’m doing my best to let you make the move but There ain't no turning back There ain't no cure for that I'm just a mess around you Nothing left to lose I'm really into you (Instrumental break) I’m trying to restrain but its no use I’m doing my best to let you make the move but There ain't no turning back There ain't no cure for that I'm just a mess around you Nothing left to lose I'm really into you There ain't no turning back There ain't no cure for that I'm just a mess around you Nothing left to lose I'm really into you (2x)

Life in New York City can be such a pain I ain't waiting on one more subway train It's never on time it's a certain delay Conductor says signal problems today Don't call it rush hour when it don't move I need to go somewhere to get back my groove I got to go, I had enough, I'm going country Packed my car and I'm on my way I put up a sign: going fishing today Wearing cut-off shorts have my tackle and bait All of those emails and texts can wait It's not like a City girl to blow people off but something was going to give I'm not mad, I'm not crazy, I'm going country I Need a tree-lined Road where I can be free I just have to recharge my battery confined spaces were bringing me down cancel all appointments I had to leave town Got my cowboy hat and a new pair of boots tossed my hose and the stifling suits Make my hair big when I make my town small Trade my right away sir for all right y'all Miranda on the radio to get me there The line dancing about to start She's gone out? she's gone shopping? She's alright? She coming back? Who knows! She's gone mad, she's gone crazy, she's gone country!

I think they’re all searching for a new Madonna Something to take away all their sins Someone to return their innocence you don’t know how long it’s been I think they need a new Nirvana A new example of the truth Something to reach(strive) for, keep them believing they’ve lost their faith in everything (themselves and anything) Society made it all about the money They climb up the ladder of success Enrich their pockets instead of their minds collecting gadgets to impress Lost souls with no direction Aimless zombies on the subway train Hands glued to iPhones rather than bibles Technology and other false idols Hands that should be pressed together for prayer Instead of texting or playing games Voices that should be used for singing about glory Shout into earpieces, the poor ignoring All the temples and churches are bare You look inside and no one is there It’s been too long since they’ve been impressed So jaded, so hardened so stressed Too involved in the day-to-day Rush to work, we’ve got bills to pay Forget the mercy G-d has shown They forget they’re not alone There is something bigger that we’re a part of Yet glory seems so far away Is there still a higher power An after life, a final hour Is there intelligence from another star Watching our every move from afar They’ve lost the need, they don’t believe Put their faith in apple rather than eve You take pictures for all the world to see You need your 15 minutes on TV Desensitized to death, too immune to care Self-absorbed selfie snap self-aware? I think they’re all searching for a new Madonna Something to take away all their sins Someone to return their innocence (return them to innocence) you don’t know how long it’s been

We met in the summer on a Brooklyn corner when I was just four and you three And you liked my Cher doll and I liked your big wheel so we got along naturally (became friends naturally) We’d run through the sprinklers and get into trouble The boys we would tease and then run Then I would get punished and you would get scolded Ending our day in the sun Apparently you were a bad influence Putting our plans to an end no no, no no, sorry no we can’t be friends We met in our grade school and you sat behind me you were the first to say hi I had just moved here and you had just transferred so you understood my plight I asked mom if you could come over and play And everything was fine till you came My mom noticed you weren’t one of our kind and she sent you home right away Now My mom’s a bigot, and your mom’s a harlot But it seems they’re fighting again No no, no no, sorry no we can’t be friends I met you in high school we had the same classes like bio and drama and chem We’d go out on weekends, and liked the same music There was no separating us then Now I liked a boy that you happened to like And then he happened to like me You made me choose as you hated to lose “it’s either him or it’s me” I tried to explain it wasn’t my fault that love is a thing that just ha-ppens (loves not a thing to depend?) you said no no, no no, sorry no we can’t be friends We met in college and were in-sep-ra-ble For so many years we were close We each got married and had our 2 children But your love is what I valued most. come the election we’re in different directions I voted blue and you red 20 years of friendship were ended on Facebook From things that we wrote and had said Sorry this tale won’t end happily This is where the story will end No no, no no, sorry no we can’t be friends No No No No Sorry no we can’t be friends

If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends Different sides of the spectrum different sides of the aisle but if we ever got together we might just make each other smile If we ever had a coffee and talked it all out then we figure out what the fighting's about We were groomed to dislike each other from the start But how different are we we both have a heart Your beliefs don't mirror mine and we don't dress the same We both worship God by a different name If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends I was born here you came from afar I spoke English from the time I could walk You grew up in poverty and I with too much But we both have talents and desires and such You believe in abstinence and I in choice You think less of women and i have a voice I believe in equality and you’re anti-gay I’m against guns you support the nra If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends The hatred that we have eats us inside Neither one will give in as we both have our pride If we lay down our weapons then we appear weak I won't be the first to turn the other cheek Our colors maybe different but our blood is the same Our presidents have issues maybe they are to blame If we stood together not on opposite sides Think of all the progress heal our country's divide If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends If I didn’t hate you so much, we could be friends

Just worked my 9-5 And I made it home alive Take off my shoes that pinch my feet And undress quickly like a cat in heat Putting on my favorite dress Something that is sure to impress Earrings makeup hair out the door in 5 Hand me the keys baby I wanna dri-i-ive You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA If you can't keep up then move to the right MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA Cuz I ain't slowing down tonight Just filled my tank with gas And I plan on going fast You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA There's no stopping me tonight! Rulebooks were made for some But I'm out to have me some fun You slow down at a yellow light Well I speed up cuz it's Friday night Parking in a questionable spot Don't matter baby cuz I'm looking hot When I'm this fine cut to the front of the line There's a martini waiting with my name on the si-i-ide You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA If you can't keep up then move to the right You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA Cuz I ain't slowing down tonight Just filled my tank with gas And I plan on going fast You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA There's no stopping me tonight! Make our way through the crowd baby grab my hand I can part the waters to the promised land I'm a woman with a mission don't stand in my way If you ain't with the program then get out of the way People circle round me when they watch me dance Come on baby I might give you a chance People in the circle watch and clap their hands Come on baby I might give you a cha-a-ance You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA If you can't keep up then move to the right You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA Cuz I ain't slowing down tonight Just filled my tank with gas And I plan on going fast You'd better MAKE ROOM FOR MAMA There's no stopping me tonight! no stopping me no stopping me no stopping me tonight!
