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: He's An Exclamation!
Out of my mind
He speaks in tongues
In a burst of eloquence
He's all keyed up
I'm all undone
Yeah, it makes no sense.
He's an exclamation
A shot in the dark
A dollop of pure confection
He says what he means
And he means what he says
He's a mythical creature
So magnificent
He's an exclamation!

He goes all out
I can't keep up
And with a wave of his hand
He stirs the air
I hold my breath
More than I can stand
He's an exclamation
A walk in the park
A swinging sound sensation
He says what he means
And he means what he says
He's a mythical creature
So magnificent
He's an exclamation!

Like a painting framed with desire
He inspires.
Fill my thoughts with color
Illuminate my eyes
And never question why.

He's self assured
I'm full of doubt
Need a moment to clear my head
Make no mistake
What I have found
For crying out loud!

(chorus and out)
Track Name: It's Not Me
My skin can’t feel the cold beneath all the scars.
And I still can’t believe I am here where you are.
Yeah, I knew on this rooftop it would be hard.
But now I see clearly here in the dark.

(CHORUS)
No, it’s not me
That you’re needing to be with.
No, it’s not me
That you’re needing at all.
No, it’s not me
That you want to spend time with.
No, it’s not me
That you’re wanting at all.
But it’s okay.

As the rain starts to fall a sigh escapes from your lips
You brush back you hair and say softly, time to go in.
I can hear in your voice there’s another you’d rather be with
I can see in your eyes there’s another…

(CHORUS)
Track Name: On The Avenue
In the morning when we wake up
We'll feel the sun
So we know we'll be okay.
We'll march along the city sidewalks
As we sing a song 
In our very own parade, it's a brilliant day.


But then we'll take a break
And talk about the weather
Maybe even share a story or two
On a crowded street
We'll say that things are better
As we gaze out on the avenue.


Maybe we could take a walk up
The streets that know you 
Where they're always shouting your name
Feel the energy of this town
It never gives up and
It never will give in, so let's step in


Where we could get a drink
And talk about the weather
Maybe even share a moment or two
In a smoky bar
We'll feel that things are better
As we gaze out on the avenue


In the evening as we walk back
We'll watch the buildings 
As they run and chase the stars
We'll see the lights go out on Broadway
But the light inside you will most
Surely guide our way, but I know it's late


As we say goodbye
We'll talk about the weather
Maybe even share a kiss or two
As the sky turns pink
We'll know that things are better
As we gaze out on the avenue.
Track Name: Follow Your Bliss
Sitting on a porch and drinking wine
You lost your train of thought when I found mine
I know it’s hard to try and find your way
When all you see are dullard shades of grey
So I just have to ask you now
Get the truth somehow
I’m losing anyhow.

(CHORUS)
You don’t have the time you say
Under your breath
I’ll just sit tight and wait, I guess
You don’t have the time
You say.

(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

I can’t believe its all come down to this
When all you want to do is follow your bliss
Why do you close all doors that lead to your soul
I wish I knew but only you can know
So I just have to ask you now
Tell the truth right now
I’m losing anyhow.

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Fool's Paradise
I cannot lie
I was born before you were.
I’m up at night
Entertaining pleasant thoughts.
I think you’re fine
It’s a blissful ignorance.
You’re pure sunshine
A warm fire when it rains.

(Chorus)
Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise
Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise

I’ve seen the light
And it shines in your eyes.
And I don’t know why
You’re just not giving in.
You’re a delight
You’re icing on my cake.
It’s lilac time
My head is in the clouds.

Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise
Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise

Should I tell you what I’m thinking?
What goes on in my mind.
Should I tell you what I’m feeling inside?
When you’re talking and you’re breathing,
Angels fly out of your mouth
Well, it’s clear see,
When you’re near me,
I’m tongue-tied.

If you don’t mind
I’ll give you daisies from my yard.
Then I’ll say goodnight
And dream of long good-byes.

Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise
Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise
Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise
Track Name: Firefly
Quiet thoughts
You are a tender sight
I try and catch your light
But you slip right through my hands, again.
A sun soaked gaze
Takes in a field of green
The brilliance that I see
Is out of my control, I know.

Firefly,
You radiate the night
Firefly,
You burn up have the sky
Firefly,
You're glowing out of reach
Firefly,
Can you stand still for me?
Firefly.

Cast a spell
My deep, blue butterfly
Your mouth, your touch, your eyes
Heat up my evening skin, and then

Firefly,
You radiate the night
Firefly,
You burn up have the sky
Firefly,
You're glowing out of reach
Firefly,
Can you stand still for me?
Firefly.

Ahhh...
Ahhh...
Ahhh...

Hearts wander
Where loyal spirits roam
A kiss seals all that's known
Your wings spark with desire
But I'm tired.

Firefly,
You radiate the night
Firefly,
You burn up have the sky
Firefly,
You're glowing out of reach
Firefly,
Can you stand still for me?
Firefly.
