about

Gail George New York, New York

Genre defying, the songwriting and production of Gail George is the sum of her musical parts. Melodic vocals over chiming guitars. Swirls of synth driven 80s piano and keyboards. A nod to 60s and 70s soulful pop and psychedelic rock all help to create a unique and distinctive but identifiable sound. She’s California pop meets New York grit. With a touch of whimsy and a whole lot of heart. ... more

Track Name: Out Of Sight **
I’m not invisible
I’m not a sight to un-see
I’m every woman you know
I am powerful, magical, beautiful.

I don’t wear a disguise
So don’t look the other way
Because here is the truth
I can see right through, you’re not so cool, the joke’s on you.

So baby, just maybe…

CHORUS
I could be out of this world
Super awesome, your dream girl
But you will never know because
I’m out of sight.
We could talk the whole night through
We’re not so different me and you
But you will never know because
I’m out of sight.

I won’t waste any time
I know we want the same things
So don’t misunderstand
If you have to ask,
Can’t look past
Then kiss my ass!

So baby, just maybe…

CHORUS

BRIDGE
(Here’s what you will find) You think you have all the answers
(You need more give than take) Oh, I’ve been there, done that.
(I can tell you that) But you don’t know any better, do you, do you, do you!

CHORUS
Track Name: Delaney James*
Will you figure it out
On the road here and now
What are you hoping to see?
Just what it takes to be free.
As you move on down…
Go on and leave it behind
A newer truth you will find
No, it won’t be the same
Tell me what’s in a name
As you hurry on down this long highway.
So who are you?

(CHORUS)
No more masquerade
It’s time for your escape
Delaney James.

You will finally be heard
Never saying a word
With the moon at your side
As you hurry on down this dark highway.
Now who are you?

(CHORUS)
No more masquerade
It’s time for your escape
Delaney James.
You’ve got nothing left to lose
But you have everything to prove
Delaney James.

(Bridge)
You can be anything that you want
You may stumble but you’ll never fall
So don’t be afraid.

(CHORUS)
No more masquerade
It’s time for your escape
Delaney James.
You’ve got nothing left to lose
But you have everything to prove
Delaney James.
Track Name: Amaranthine*
Infinite and never fading
Limitless and everlasting
Feeling love in walls that crumble
The road of time and space forever.

We’ll never know
What might have been
Can we explain
Amaranthine.

The roads we walk are never ending
Our streets are paved with good intentions
We pound our chests to get attention
But fail to see we are no different.

How can we know
What might have been
There is no tomorrow
Amaranthine.

What have we done…
Track Name: Love More**
You’re over there
And I’m over here
We’re keeping score
Because we can’t love more.

You’re gonna go (you’re gonna go)
And I’m gonna go (I’m gonna go)
So what matters now
Is that we must love more.

Why can’t we see love more? (see love)
Why can't we feel love more? (feel love)
Why can’t we show love more? (show love)
Why can't we hear love more? (hear love)
Why can’t we do love more? (do love)
Why can't we be love more? (be love)
Track Name: A Wonderful Life*
You are bold and brilliant,
You know you can do anything!
How beautiful are you?
Go ahead, make your move, then get carried away.

You deserve a wonderful life.
You deserve a wonderful life.

Your world swirls in color
And it sounds like a symphony, yeah!
How wonderful are you?
Take a chance and don’t forget, you’re magnificent!

You deserve a wonderful life.
You deserve a wonderful life.

You are what you do
What you say
So make it all count
Never give up
Never look back
You are free
So what will it be?

You deserve a wonderful life.
You deserve a wonderful life.
Track Name: Because Of U **
U said that I could do anything
Purring words of possibility
I believed my mind was opened more
All because of U

U said that life was this perfect gift
I didn’t know though, just what to do with it
I learned to think inside looking out
All because of U

R U safe, R U happy, ok?
I still can see your eyes, your smile.
I am safe, I am happy, ok
I now know what to do
I found my way out and through
It’s all brand new
Because of U

U told me once I could go anywhere
The world’s your marble baby, what are you doing here?
I learned to fly, trusting my every move
All because of, because of U

I heard U say, “girl don’t U be afraid.
U can lean on me anytime of day"
I am me
All because of U

CHORUS

BRIDGE/OUTRO
(Because of U) I feel stronger
(Because of U) I am wiser
(Because of U) I love deeper
(Because of U) I see farther
(Because of U) I stand taller
(Because of U) I shine brighter
(Because of U) I am better because of U.
Track Name: This Mad Dash*
This mad dash
Didn’t go on forever
Gone too fast
What did I learn?

Never restless, hopeless, I recall,
I thought I had time, you see
I was free, I believed
But the many trips around the sun,
Taught me what’s right
And what is wrong.

This mad dash
(running, falling, hiding, flying)
Kept me running in circles
(running, falling, hiding, flying)
Found at last, this life unplanned.
(running, falling, hiding, flying)

There’s a vague reflection I recall
Of watching the clock, deceived
It had stopped for me.
Flying high above without a net
Untethered, unchained
I saw no end.

I have time
I have no time.
Track Name: Mister Jones
Cracked and unglued
The world went looking for you
But then out of thin air, we see you everywhere
Now we just don’t know what we should do

CHORUS
But here’s what we know, is true Mister Jones
That we really love you.
With a head full of stars
We know where you are
And we really love you.

Now you’re a blue butterfly
And all the clouds in the sky.
You’re the sound of the wind
And all the rain on our skin
You’re the bluebird that soars out of sight.

CHORUS

Now the world feels different
Without you here moving in it
So when love is a star
We’ll look up, there you are!

CHORUS

Everyone says hi
We love you, we miss you, we thank you.
