Hope, The blackness…fading to gray Lord I swear it’s getting brighter, better. God… what’s coming over me? Colors, Rainbows of colors, bringing…See More

The piece is supposed to be sung in a bluesy, soulful way, kind of like something Norah Jones or Ray Charles would sing. Vinegar and Oil No matter what we do No matter how hard we try It always stays the same girl                                            Baby you know it’s true We’re just like vinegar and oil We don’t go together very well Unless we’re shaken up or stirred                                                   We…See More
