about

This 7-song album is all about sharing the evolution of the heart through song. Compared to Lindee's first album, "Songs from Tokyo," this new collection of music embodies the more bold, dynamic and uplifting aspects of Lindee's voice and songwriting. Producer Enrique Gonzalez Muller played a critical role in bringing out the eccentricity of each song, resulting in a truly unique soundscape of audible color, flavor and texture. Lindee's motivation for recording this album lies in her desire to embrace this journey of life, and the people she meets along the way. She hopes that this music will nourish and bring happiness to all who listen.

Track Name: Mother Miriam
Time goes on
day by day
Things change, they flow
they grow and pass away

But here I am
roses in my hair
There isn’t a place
that can’t be filled
with all my care

How many times have I told you
I’ll open up my arms
My arms are always open to you
Oh, how I know you’re needing
needing to be heard
Well this world needs you too

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be ashamed, no
Love where you’ve been,
where you’re going
and where you stand today

‘Cuz time will go on
and everything changes, changes, changes
Let it in
let it out
let it be that way

She said, how many times have I told you
I’ll open up my arms
My arms are always open to you

Oh, how I know you’re needing
needing to be heard
Well this world
needs you to
Sing out
(swelling grace, calm embrace, clear as her love)
Sing out

She said, how many times have I told you
I’ll open up my arms
My arms are always open to you

Oh, how I know you’re needing
needing to be heard
Well this world
needs you to
sing out
Track Name: Burnt Kisses
Open skies
should clear this smell of smoke hovering
or am I still standing too close to you?

Your big blue eyes
sometimes looking
but often overlooking me
I guess I could’ve taken my cue from you.

Emptiness washed over me and
carved out this little space
that I label with your name.

Deep long sighs
from inside
help me realize,
I’m strangely relieved that
you were way too cool for me anyway.
Despite all this
I know I’ll still miss
your burnt kisses,
and the taste of your cigarettes on my lips.

Your chest rises and falls
faster than mine.
I felt so off beat.
So many nights that I couldn’t
fall asleep.

Despite all this,
I know I’ll still miss
your burnt kisses
Track Name: Until The Sun's Done Burning
Your smile gets under my skin.
You walk like the beat just dropped in
turn this rainy afternoon
to a bright sunny day

September brought a change in my heart.
Lord knows I should’ve felt it from the start.
though I tried to resist
it only made you persist

Never let it run,
never let it run out.
Never let it run,
never let it run out.
Until the sun’s done burning,
my love, my love, my love
my love won’t run out.

70 miles too far away.
I’d take a train but then I’d
give myself away
and I don’t want you knowing
how I’m easily swayed.
So silly me thinking I’m still
winning this game.

Never let it run,
never let it run out.
Never let it run,
never let it run out.
Until the sun’s done burning,
my love, my love, my love
my love won’t run out.

Of all of the paths we could’ve taken,
here we are face to face.
May I be so bold to say I think
we’re gonna make it
If we just never let it run

Never let it run,
never let it run out.
Never let it run,
never let it run out.
Until the sun’s done burning,
my love, my love, my love
my love won’t run out.
Track Name: Blue Grey
Blue skies above me,
But I can’t see a thing.
Mississippi drags on slowly,
Murky warm on my skin.
Just how all of these tears,
been clouding my sun,
ever since you’ve been done.

Grey skies are coming.
But that don’t mean a thing
for this grey and cold heart,
ever since we fell apart,
nothin’s been the same.

Baby I can’t understand
why you had to be a man and
leave me.
Got dirty river stains
From the rusty banks
Tears surroundin’ me

Dark skies in view,
I’m still thinkin' of you.
What does one do
when their lover is through?

Blue skies above me
but that don’t mean a thing.
All I need is some rain
to wash far away
all these thoughts of you.
Track Name: Little Hands
Konnani chisana tede (こんなに小さな手で) With such little hands
Watashi no kokorowo (私の心を) my heart
Tsukamaetanone (捕まえたね) you took
Chisana kao (小さな顔) Such small faces
Chisana koe (小さな声) such small voices
Dakedo konnani ookina
aiwa (たけどこんなに大きな愛は) But this kind of big love is….
Fushigidane (不思議だね)Isn’t it a mystery?
Konnani ookina aiwa (こんなに大きな愛は) this kind of big love is….
Hajimete (初めて) a first for me.
Hajimete (初めて) a first for me.

Those little hands,
those little faces,
Watashino korowo marugoto tabetane (私の心を丸ごと食べたね) You ate my heart in one bite.
Itsumademo sobade mimamoritai (何時までも側で見守りたい) I always want to watch over you
Zutto sono kimochi de irukarane (ずっとその気持ちでいるからね) And I will always feel this way

Izure ookikunattemo (何れは大きくなって) Eventually you’ll grow older
Tomodachi de iyoune (も友達で居ようね) But let’s always remain friends
Everyone knows I'm your captive.
All that I have,
I give to you.
I give to you.

Such little hands
Such little faces
Dakedo konnani ookina aiwa (たけどこんなに大きな愛は) But this kind of big love is….
Hajimete (初めて) a first for me.
Track Name: Lullaby
Baby, put your head on my shoulder
Don’t worry about growing older
Don’t think about anything just for this moment
Go on, close your eyes

Baby let the wind take you there
Listen to that cold winter air
Warm you will keep if you hold onto me
Listen to this sweet melody

Even though the lights are all out
The moon still shines above and all about
You’re gently dozing
Your eyelids are closing
On this cold winter night
On this cold, this cold winter night
