AFRAID TO CHANGE: © 2002 David Celia I'm missin' feelin' in such a bad way The world is getting colder And the mirror's growing older My ear's aren't hearing things the same way My friends are getting bolder And there's an aching in my shoulder I don't know what to do I just keep thinking how I'm lucky to have you You know some people share a different point of view And it trips me like an untied shoe And now the seasons change around me I'm staring at a tree or is it looking back at me Tryin' to fit in borders that surround me I'm one piece in the puzzle of a box I try to guzzle I don't know what to do I still keep thinking how I'm lucky to have you You know some people share a different point of view Things are more attractive when they're shiney and new Don't be afraid to Change Afraid to Change Don't be afraid to Change Afraid to Change Don't be afraid to Change I can't believe how much my life's been re-arranged Sometimes it seems the dream is falling out of range How could you know the world could be so strange

Faker Baker 02:32
Fake, fake, faker baker Why you trying to be something you're not? Is there something you forgot? Why you showing everyone how to not be themselves? Don't put me on the shelve 'Cause it's somewhere deep inside In a place you seem to hide From before you could divide Maybe there's someone you forgot? Fake it just to make it On somebody's list of expectations Creating your frustration Don't you know there's something else so special that you've got? Something you think you're not And you know it's all a lie It feels like a part of you has died Since the moment you first cried Maybe there's someone you forgot

Fill My Empty Cup Words & music by David Celia ©2002 SOCAN Ohhh, I wanna feel that song Ohhh, Back where I belong Someone tell me where I went wrong. Ohhh, and when I feel this way I hope the feeling stays But morning comes and then it goes away Oh, but I pick me up Use my hands and stir it up Fill my empty cup You Can make a dream come true Ohhh, we’ll make it all brand new You’ll know things you thought you never knew Oh, When I’m in a rut Use my feet get off my butt, Fill my empty cup You’re so pretty, Just roamin’ the city And doin’ what you can to understand Such a long way to go But nobody really knows…. -Solo- Oh, but I pick me up Use my hands and stir it up Fill my empty cup

Don’t’ Keep It All Inside Words & music by David Celia ©2002 SOCAN *drums – 1/8th notes on the kick in verses don't keep it all inside there's nothin' you can hide believe me 'cause I've tried I've seen the morning side the night time could not hide the beauty that's inside I see it in your eyes The look upon your face I never could erase Puts everything in place SO, don't keep it all inside there's nothin' you can hide believe me 'cause I've tried I see it in your eyes

Dante 03:01
Dante By David Celia I don't know where you came from God knows where you've been But you walked into my life You were brought to me by my wife It's been a week and you've already peed on the floor You make a run for it everytime I open the door Dropped a log on the neighbour's front lawn again Got bags in my pockets for the accidents I don't know where you came from God knows where you've been But when I look in those eyes boy I know that I have a friend in you Wake up in the morning to you Your eyes open once I move I've got hair on the bed getting stuck in my throat You're fish breath licking me on the mouth You wanna go outside so you can bark at the squirrels Or get in the car so you can go for a whirl I don't know where you came from God knows where you've been But when I look in those eyes boy I know that I have a friend in you

Procrastination By David Celia Is there anybody who Can tell me what to do Life seems too short to be true And when I go downtown The buzz is all around My stomach hurts and the walls surround I am a tree I live outside Nobody warned me They just ignored me and Ahhhhhh! Fridge door open too long Procrastination strong Tell everybody they're wrong Then back to bed at night Your dreams are out of sight 'Til God turns on the light I am a tree I live outside Nobody warned me You'll pay the price and Ahhhhhh!

He's A Caterpillar By David Celia He never has to grieve As long as there are leaves He hides in his paper He minds his own business He talks with a smiling frown Walks like a circus clown Always looking for something to eat With eyes determined on a special treat There's music always p[aying in his head He's happy in his caterpillar bed He talks with a smiling frown Walks like a circus clown His thoughts are gonna fry He's waving us goodbye Tears are welling up in his eyes "Cause he knows he'll never fly with the butterflies

Warm Fuzzy 02:02
Warm Fuzzy By David Celia I'm on a long trip to a far away place from home I wanna feel the same when I come back to your arms And I can't stop my brain as I get off the plane I don't feel the same and it's hard to explain The feeling that I get from this love When I think about all the good times that I know From the time I was small they have lent me a hand to grow And I've been a good and I've shared all my toys I'm using my voice it's a popular choice To reach out to the ones that I love And I've been reading some books and I'm writing some hooks I find that this state of mine's getting me looks It comes from all the ones It comes from all the ones It comes from all the ones that I love

Evolution 03:02
Evolution By David Celia If you could see What I believe Then we could be as one and never leave So open up your heart It isn't hard to start And bring me in too close to your dreams Much time has passed since we have been apart, my friend It is time to join again If you feel it in your heart Then grab your friends and start to be what we are And will always be If I could see What you believe Then we could be as one and never leave So open up your heart It isn't hard to start And bring me in too close to your dreams If you look, then turn away Turn back and see the window in my eye All alone our children cry If you see it in my heart Don't be afraid to start to love What we are and will always be So open up your heart It isn't hard to start And bring me in too close to your dreams

about

If David Celia's Organica didn't declare -- in the liner notes -- that all songs had been recorded in his house on a Macintosh G4, I would not have suspected this was a home-grown project. The first solo project of Celia, a guitarist from the Toronto "rootsy-rock pop" band Invisible Inc., Organica has a more polished sound than Invisible Inc.'s 2000 release Poor Folks Welcome, though it's hard to pigeonhole in terms of genre. The guitars (acoustic and electric) are superb, the keyboards well-balanced, the percussion nicely understated. Celia could give other independent artists lessons on how to record and package their own music.
