    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.

This is the title track. Pop/Adult Contemporary.

lyrics

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
