Nicole



I try to know what's the matter
You try and tell me what it is
You think the answers lie with time and patience
Experience and hope
But I know that's not true.

You have to give so much more than that
The answer isn't short and you can't find it staring down a road
That doesn't lead anywhere but away from here
You won't find an answer.

You're more naïve than I wanna tell you
You try to understand when you're drunk and swaying
That's when you find your answers
But I know it's not the end
When you plan that trip away

Sometimes people tell you that the world won't come crashing down
But I know that's not true and I hope you can understand
The way it feels when everything falls away.

Song to the Noodly Savior

You're just some meatballs and some noodly stuff
Yeah you're the kind of thing I probably would have eaten for lunch
But you're my perfect noodly savior
And you weren't even born in a manger

FSM I love you
FSM you make me feel real good inside
FSM I love you
Well you touched me with your noodly appendage
Now I worship your holy visage
FSM I love you

Well the pirates are gone and global warming is on
We've got charts and graphs to show you that we're not wrong
He created the universe with a midget, a mountain, a tree
Then he got to work on you and me

We know you're never going to judge us
And that's how we know you love us

FSM we love you
Yes we do
FSM we love you
Yes we do
You touched us with your noodly appendage
Now we worship your holy visage
FSM we love you


Below is original draft of this. Warning: it was done with a terrible webcam. Fortunately, the sound is done with a separate mic so it's not bad.

The Envelope Song



Fell in love with your best friend
Isn't this the way you knew the story had to end
I'm so tired of making prank phone calls

You throw out words to set the story straight
You're such a liar but you know you just can't wait
For someone to question those words

It isn't over it never started
You're setting yourself up
It's getting harder to retrace your steps
Just have another drink
Step to the ring
You know what's right but you know what you want.

You can talk about it but don't you dare touch that dial
You can trick your mind that always works for a while

Don't stop but don't start
Just keep making prank phone calls
Don't stop but don't start
You know what you want but you know it's wrong
Don't stop but don't start

Stop Look Listen



Stop look and listen
Take a position
You can stand by the bar and flashing lights
Or by the dance floor, maybe you might
Dance with someone tonight.

Stop look and listen
Take a position
Strattle someone on a couch who calls you baby
Tip a drag queen and maybe
Sleep with someone tonight

You don't need to understand
Take my hand, we'll find you man
You don't need to understand
Take my hand, we'll find you a girl
Who'll try to give you her world

Stop look and listen
You don't need permission
To stick your tongue down everyone's throat

Stop look and listen
Take a position
Near the bathroom in case you throw up

Stop look and listen
Take a position
Outside
Try to find a ride
It's so hard trying to be chill when it's not inside

Inauguration Day



Barack Obama, you're our new president
Hope you don't f*** it up as much as the last one did
You don't have to be much better to be better than him
I hope you thought this through before you jumped right in

Barack Obama
I hope you didn't make me feel hopeful for nothing
Barack Obama
You know you make 53% of the voting public feel something
Barack Obama
It took us a long long time to potentially get this right
Don't let us down

The Dow is way down
And there are people on warring grounds
You have two beautiful kids and a beautiful wife
Please think about how this affects your life
And whether my friends and I and California should have that right.

About Carly

I am a singer, songwriter and composer from Springfield, Missouri.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from Missouri State University and am currently working on getting a Master in Music, with an emphasis in Composition from the same university.

I have composed music for strings, voice and winds. I am hoping to write a chamber opera as my masters thesis in the spring of 2010.
