about

Meghan Arias Atlanta, Georgia

I find my music in the cracks and the crevices. Moments stolen when small hands and sweet voices are sleeping.

A lot of my time is given to loving on my children and doing the best I can to ensure that when they're old enough to sit down and have a beer with, they'll be the kind of people I'd want to sit down and have a beer with.

Track Name: Twine
Stained glass heartbeats
Mine shine miles a minute
Pieces of hope
Tucked in my pocket
I've had them now for years

Twine me up in green and white
I'll have you know I saw the light
A long time ago
More than you'll ever know

Strike up the matches
And burn away
The shroud of wasted years
The chapters and the novels
Of misunderstandings
Should be forgotten here

Twine me up in green and white
I'll have you know I saw the light
A long time ago
More than you'll ever know

If I could show
The joy found at the start
When I gave chase to my heart
Track Name: Lucille
Oh my.
Oh dear, Lucille.
Why'd you go up and steal kisses from a man you know you don't love?

Oh my.
Oh dear, Lucille.
So you don't want to feel any part of your heart that might smart...

From the pain of being alone
From getting what you thought you want
What you thought you want
But now there is no one
That you can truly call your own
Can call your own
Oh Lucille.
You're everything to no one.

Oh my.
Oh dear, Lucille.
You need time to heal from the mess that you have fallen in.

Oh my.
Oh dear, Lucille.
What might be revealed if you would slow down; don't let your heart drown...

From the pain of being alone
From getting what you thought you want
What you thought you want
But now there is no one
That you can truly call your own
Can call your own
From the pain of being alone.
From getting what you thought you want.
What you thought you want.
But now there is no one that you can truly call you own
Can call your own
How'd you get to giving up
All the things that you said you found?
You said you found.
Oh Lucille.
You're everything to no one.
Track Name: Spanish Bombs (cover from The Clash's "London Calling")
Spanish songs in Andalucia
The shooting sites in the days of '39
Oh, please, leave the vendanna open
Fredrico Lorca is dead and gone

Bullet holes in the cemetery walls
The black cars of the Guardia Civil
Spanish bombs on the Costa Rica
I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight

Spanish bombs, yot' quierro y finito
Yo te querda oh ma corazón
Spanish bombs, yot' quierro y finito
Yo te querda oh ma corazón

Spanish weeks in my disco casino
The freedom fighters died upon the hill
They sang the red flag
They wore the black one
But after they died it was Mockingbird Hill

Back home the buses went up in flashes
The Irish tomb was drenched in blood
Spanish bombs shatter the hotels
My senorita's rose was nipped in the bud

Spanish bombs, yot' quierro y finito
Yo te querda oh ma corazón
Spanish bombs, yot' quierro y finito
Yo te querda oh ma corazón

The hillsides ring with "Free the people"
Or can I hear the echo from the days of '39?
With trenches full of poets
The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the other line

Spanish bombs rock the province
I'm hearing music from another time
Spanish bombs on the Costa Brava
I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight

Spanish bombs, yot' quierro y finito
Yo te querda oh ma corazón
Spanish bombs, yot' quierro y finito
Yo te querda oh ma corazón
Oh ma corazón, oh ma corazón
Spanish songs in Andalucia, Mandolina, oh ma corazón
Spanish songs in Granada, oh ma corazón
Oh ma corazón, oh ma corazón, oh ma corazón

Oh my heart.

(From the album "London Calling" by The Clash)
Track Name: Sweet Hello
It's early.
I'm still awake here.
I've been dreaming that you're right beside me.
I'd love some coffee and a sweet hello.
I wish you were with me; we would be happy.

Lately,
It's been fifty times harder.
I've been hoping that I could catch sight of you.
I want to escape now on an aeroplane.
But you could come with me; we would be happy.

It's funny,
The effect you have on me.
I've been wishing that I didn't love you.
But oh, you're so lovely I can't help myself.
'Cause when you are with me, I am so happy.
