I was sitting in a movie theater hearing the song at the end of a movie.. and I recognized the melody & lyrics from one of my choruses – but it was from a song that already existed! Then the horror set in, “Oh nooo.. did I rip that off?? Crap!!”
When You’re in Love
Belongs in a spy movie. A passionate song about getting your way. It’s like being in love but secretly wanting to poison the person.
Don’t Wake the Lion
About a lion in my bed.
If You Love Me
Life is short. We only have this moment to love each other cause we’re all gonna die!!
– empty? Laughing at these times.
It’s a Beautiful Day
Don’t listen to all the scrooges telling you to be afraid of living.
This morning I started a new song… I was telling Alej about seeing a spider in my sink… later the lyric became ‘a lion in my bed.’ And now it’s 1am, & we’re working on our new song “Don’t Wake the Lion” – yeah, I’ve lost it. I don’t even need a new song. We’re supposed to be finishing the other ones. lol
Today we took the scenic route to the studio… (Topanga & PCH) Stopped off at the beach for a few… Ahhhhhhh
Last night I stayed up all hours finishing what’s probably the most beautiful song I’ve ever written called “If You Love Me.” Kindof a tearjerker but also sweet. Ale & I started it on 3/20/10. This night:

(I was laughing at some stupid SNL joke he told me… I think it’s ridiculously funny, so I’m partially laughing at myself here)
