Evidently True Words and music by David Celia ©2004 SOCAN Look at this thing I can’t believe that it’s working I can’t believe that it’s moving…evidently true. Look at me sing I can’t believe that I’m standing here Overcoming any possible fear…. Right in front of you…OOOOOOOOOOOO I can’t believe that there’s a drive thru and I’m sitting in my car I’m gonna order up some coffee My arms and legs don’t work apparently The world has come so far You’re honking your horn ‘Cause supposedly I cut you off I didn’t mean to cut you off Because I’ve felt that way before…OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Do, do do do doooo…..do do do do dooooooooooo Do, do do do doooo…..do do do do dooooooooooo Look at this world I can’t believe that it’s still happening They drill it in our heads that it is crappening We must be doin’ something right It’s always been the same The sunshine feeds the world with all its light The people strive to grow with all their might Together we’ll be new….OOOOOOOOOOOO Do, do do do doooo…..do do do do dooooooooooo Do, do do do doooo…..do do do do dooooooooooo Do, do do do doooo…..do do do do dooooooooooo Do, do do do doooo…..do do do do dooooooooooo I see it in your eyes That you won’t give it up without a fight It’s this desire that makes it all so right Evidently true ...OOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Best Thing Ever Word and music by David Celia Forget about the pain Don’t wanna see you again I say it over to myself but here we go again What is it about you? It doesn’t seem we’re through I’m finding things about me that I never knew CHORUS: There’s a feeling I don’t get and I just don’t know what to say Those times I hope I close my mouth, I’m probably better off that way And I get so down about it just until I wake to see Uh huh, you’re the best thing ever happened to me We carry on this way Forever and a day For such a long, long time, We’ll be here to stay (CHORUS) (SOLO) There’s a feeling I don’t get and I just don’t know what to say Those times I hope I close my mouth, I’m probably better off that way And I get so down about it just until I hear you say Uh huh, you’re the best thing ever happened to me Best thing ever happened to me Yeah, you’re the best thing ever happened to me

Infinity 03:40
Infinity ©David Celia I was born into this land And a man named doctor took me by the hand He said Mama, you’re boy is doing well Don’t get him tangled up in this old hell Ya, this world can cast a nasty spell All the headlines that you read will tell That your baby’s hittin’ hard roads up ahead Don’t be a victim to the fears they spread -- If the mountain that you’re climbing is too steep Or the waters all around you too deep Pause and breathe but baby don’t you sleep The illusion’s much too heavy for you too keep Chorus: Yeah, Life gets tough sometimes, there is no doubt And your body may be bruised from every bout(oooooooo) I urge you to stay on your path, don’t be subjected to the math It all adds up to nothing in the end -- One and one, plus two will equal four Still they tell you that you’re going to need some more But I get by on being poor Or whatever it is they call not needing more (Harmonica solo) Now my body’s startin’ to melt from all this heat And my senses are beginning to deplete I close my eyes and accept the defeat But tomorrow I’ll be standin’ on my feet Chorus: Yeah, Life gets tough sometimes, there is no doubt And your body may be bruised from every bout(oooooooo) I urge you to stay on your path, don’t be subjected to the math It all adds up to nothing in the end

Cactus 03:08
Cactus By David Celia He's a Bryk He'll help you any way he can When you ask them then they'll tell you he's the man He's a prick 'Cause if you ask him his opinion He'll be honest Even when you never asked for it at all And on the journey to your dreams You will pass him like a cactus in the desert And you'll know him by the harshness in his themes You can take it any way you like But if you don't like him you'll spend your life in the desert Drinking water from his arms It's not a trick It's something all of us encounter When you've found 'er You'll be thankful for his prick 'Cause he's a Bryk He'll help you any way he can When you ask them Then they'll tell you he's the man

This Isn’t Here Words and music by David Celia ©2004 This World isn’t here, believe me. This World isn’t here. This World isn’t here, believe me. I can see it too. This fear isn’t here, I close my eyes and it all comes clear This fear isn’t here, believe me. I can see it too. Though it’s easy to deny it. It feels better to admit. You’re perfect and a perfect world ain’t here. Don’t think as it as an escape, But rather a return. In a song, you can find out where you belong. This song isn’t here, believe me. This song isn’t here This song isn’t here, believe me. I can hear it too.

Speak To Me 03:24
Speak To Me By David Celia I called you up this evening To say something from my heart And when we made it to the hard part We seemed to have got disconnected The lines don't seem too clear 'Cause everytime I feel I'm getting near I wonder if you know where I am going? Are you coming with me or are you staying here? The days fly past like tomorrow We think about it though it isn't here I just wanna be lying there beside you Talking 'bout our problems 'til it's clear I want someone that I can talk to Who can tell me what it is that makes them bleed 'Cause the wounds keep coming in with each day But they all go away when i hear you say

SHE’S A WATERFALL © 2000 David Celia I know times have been tough on you and me And the show biz wool has made it hard to see Hard to see Get it out and make it on the street Is the way of living in the city In the city I’ve even seen some compromise their dignity It is such a pity (1/2 chorus) I believe you’re an answer to my call Coming down like a cool fresh waterfall There’s a man on the TV telling me If I buy his stuff that I will be free I will be free With so many characters shady I’m lucky to have you as my lady You’re my lady You don’t know how much you make me happy In the times that are crappy I believe you’re an answer to my call Coming down like a cool fresh waterfall Never judging anyone at all Doesn’t matter if it’s big or small Solo You don’t know how much you make me happy I’m a slap happy pappy (Repeat chorus 2x) I believe you’re an answer to my call Coming down like a cool fresh waterfall Never judging anyone at all Doesn’t matter if it’s big or small

NYC 03:30
NYC By David Celia The city speaks to me It leads me through the streets So many people there to meet Hidden and insecrue Some people skillfully demure But inside, not real sure how I feel I'm thinking about you everyday Sometimes in another way There isn't time enough in a day to say The things I plan to say On some future day If I ever find the time Too busy meeting you And someone else that's new It's must be true because it rhymes I'm thinking about you everyday Sometimes in another way There isn't time enough in a day to say I just want to hold you close and send the lovin' through my skin I'll feel yours and we can close our eyes Feel like one big sky

Plain To See 03:37
Plain To See By David Celia ©2006 SOCAN Sadness in the sky Mirroring the peoples feelings And like our eyes it starts to cry Weeping for the business men Sleeping in the illusion Stock may rise but then it always starts to fall Where do we go from here? So when we come from fear It can cost endless years To get in touch with who we really are It’s plain to see just you and me I don’t know your name But I know you play the game ‘cause it goes in circles and we’re all the same With perfect time We do align It’s plain to see just you and me

Tear Duct 02:31
Tear Duct By David Celia Tear Duct, I found you one day I thought we outgrew you after infancy Tear duct, above my lower eyelid Mistook you for a blemish in my highschool days Like a ringer on the telephone You signal a call You are the messenger of sadness or incredible awe Won't you pour some of your salt water essence Down my face today 'Cause I'm missin' what it feels like to be alive Tear drop, running down from my eye Didn't see it coming didn't have to try Tear drop. And when I'm finished my cry The feeling is gone and I'm wondering why So many people talk and talk About what they know Sometimes they even say "That's the way things go" But I know that when they're all alone With their tear ducts running wild They're thinking about how little they really know

Brothers 03:20
Brothers By David Celia When we were young Had so much fun Played hide and seek I hoped you'd come out We told outselves When we grew up we'd never part The hockey games The calling names The cigarettes Dad never knew Until we grew I thought I knew what to do I was hoping you knew The world has changed So much since we were smaller Or could it be, our secret worlds grew larger? And maybe now, if you listen closely You might hear the sound of someone Who needs you more than you know It calls your name Out of the blue And temps you to Try something new May not be cool But in your heartd there plays no fool
