about

All the songs on Sangria Jam were written in Málaga, Spain, and are reflections of my life here. The title, Sangria Jam alludes to the way many influences of blood and sound have come together on this disc.

Track Name: Málaga
When I step off the plane
The sweetness in the salty breeze fills my happy lungs
It always feels the same
When I get back from overseas I’m feverish as the sun

Málaga

Mi vida waits for me
Gonna take in every pleasure, gonna put away the map
I love the way it feels
To roll with every rhythm, sink my feet back in the sand

Málaga

Malaga you’ve got a lot of stories to tell
Malaga you’ve got a lot of style with the spell
That you cast of those like me who gamble everything they’ve got
To chase the dream that you promise with your charms

Málaga

Mi vida’s here for me
I’ll be following the treasure till I chase another map
I love the way I feel
When I’m rolling in the pleasure as my feet play in the sand
Track Name: Soar
I know you've got a lot to say
But you know I'd really rather play
When you're willing to risk it all
You'll find your heart will call you
To a endless holiday

And you'll say:
Everything that's happening is really happening to me
Everything I'm dreaming of is right in front of me to see
I beam as I glide into a takeoff from the shore
In great anticipation of the soar

I know you've had some finer days
But you know I’ve got a lighter way
Aim your heart into the wind
And you'll find you'll begin to
Take a flight that won't betray

Elation… of the soar
Track Name: Llórame
Llórame, abrázame y llórame
You cry and lead my heart astray
You're stronger when you fall
You fall to my fragility
A quiet dose of ecstasy
That fades before the dawn
And then it's gone

Llórame, abrázame y llórame
You cry but you can never stay
You take me to my end
We're searching for the same embrace
Returning to a sacred place
Where love is love alone
Beyond the stone

Llórame, go softly as you race toward the burning sun
Llórame, and bring you light you seek
Track Name: Bulería #1
Early in the morning when I find myself alone
I remember what you told me
In your brazen baritone
And I can't believe you said that
And I hope it isn't true
So I wrote this bulería for you

I've lied in the light of lives mistaken
And I've tried...
But my little heart has since awakened
And it follows the sound of the wind in my hair as I fly

You will never know what I know
When you say I don't know how to stay
You will never see what I see
Well I see the games that you all play
If you stick around, si te quedas verás que sí, que sí
You'll see hombre hombre, que sí, hombre
Track Name: Jasmine Tree
Fragrant the jasmine tree
Sweetly seducing me
You saw how I cried through the rain
And you said there you go again
There you go again, you haven't learned a thing

Eyes from opposing sides
Go blind when their hearts collide
Lost in the lushness of longing
Longing for a love
Longing for a love that hasn't learned a thing

I know it's all wrong and I try to hold on
But I get swept away by the tide
It carries me down to the depths
With creatures that vie for my hide
Díos mío, you say, corazón!
La vida no vale sin ti
How sweet is the jasmine tree

There you go again….
Ya está otra vez con lo mismo...
You haven't learned a thing
Track Name: Beauty In the Ruins
The riverbed is full of dust
That longs to be swished full again
Where venture reigned there now remain
A million dreams that should've been

I wonder through red jagged rocks
And soil drenched with memories
I ask myself what made me sail
From shores of opportunity

To find beauty in decay

Releasing my ambition
I succumb to my own mystery
And leave the peaks and valleys
To the bleak inhospitality

I find beauty in decay
Beauty in the ruins

A quiet moment brings a smile
As my imagination sees me
Dancing on a marble floor
In days of golden luxury

I wonder through red jagged rocks
And soil drenched with memories
And I realize what made me sail
From shores of opportunity

I find beauty in decay
Beauty in the ruins
Track Name: I Once Said I'd Stay
I once said I'd stay
For the relentless crash
Of the Mediterranean Sea
And the daily talk of winds, el levante

I once said I'd stay
To see a flock and shepherd
With his crook in hand
Roaming the rhythms of the land

Resigning to my easy days
I then got caught by an unyielding gaze
He was brown of eye, and red of blood
And he said, someday you'll stay for love.

I once said I'd stay
For the cracked green olives
And the fresh goat cheese
The scent of freedom in the breeze

I once said I'd stay
For grapes of muscatel
And its sweet strong wine
That soaks the barrels of my mind

And I never thought I'd say goodbye
But didn't think the reason why
Would be this brown of eye and red of blood
Who said someday I'd stay for love

Hearts of old tradition can be gusty in their ways
Will he bring storms or gentle days?

And I never thought I'd say goodbye
But I didn’t think the reason why
Would be this brown of eye and red of blood
Who said someday ‘you’ll stay….’, I’d stay for love
Track Name: Temporary Home
My hammer's met a thousand nails
I pummel, forge and crack
I like it that way
I elevate and raise the beast
I drown in my own sweat
No need to explain

I'm travel weary
But I somehow find the grit I need
To make another temporary home

The cynics see me as light and breezy
They think I win the crowd
With ruffles on my gown
They think I'm rich and they grab and snatch
But they're blind to see the tear stains
On my hand-me-downs

I could be shattered
But I don't believe a jagged heart
Could find another temporary home

With every new beginning I have made alone
I get a thrill from all the pristine possibilities
In the vicinity of my new temporary home

I'm travel weary
But I somehow find the grit I need
To make another temporary home
Track Name: Wild Imagination
I bought myself a good address
Furnished with the chicest best
And neighbouring my swanky digs
I played a lot of cushy gigs, I had it all
But then I gave it all away one day one breezy day

When ancient wind swept up my hair
And lured me into this affair
With my wild imagination

Now I'm Artemis in leaves of green
My bow and arrow shot is mean
I'm Venus in a silken gown
My luxuries can take them down
Down to their knees
Where I do absolutely anything I please

Since an ancient wind swept up my hair
And lured me into this affair
With my wild imagination

My mother said the first few words that I could ever speak were I’m a little crazy
‘She's crazy… ‘ they all said ‘that girl's crazy, she’s just nuts!’

She thinks she's Lawrence of Arabia
She loves her egomania
She's Rambo in the the thick of tress
She's Tarzan swinging through the breeze
As he cries ahahahaha!
But in my clever mind I nail it every time

Since an ancient wind swept up my hair
And lured me into this affair
With my wild imagination
Track Name: Yellow Veranda
The market is alive, a feast of colours for the eye
I've got almonds, figs, and oranges from Valencia
I'm gathering a vision of the meal I'll make alone
With my army of artichokes from Almería

I run back as I decide to buy the fresh catch of the day
And I crash into a rugged smile, and I think I hear him say:

‘I’ve got wine from the sunniest vine
Let's dine on my yellow veranda
Come along and we'll laugh until dawn
Let's dine on my yellow veranda’

I drop my bag of artichokes, they scramble on the floor
And they roll between his shoes of sturdy leather
I gather up my might but he can see that I am shy
And says, ‘worry not we'll pick them up together.’

I look up and I can see he's just as curious as I
So I break into a smile and then imagine his reply

‘I’ve got wine from the sunniest vine
Let's dine on my yellow veranda
Come along and we'll laugh until dawn
Let's dine on my yellow veranda’

Should I come to my senses
Or should I keep dreaming that he's gonna say
'My table's set for two'
