Come Take a Walk with Me By Curt Yagi Chorus Come take a walk with me now darling Come take a walk with me it's okay Verse You're sitting in the corner of Chats cafe I try for your attention but you won't turn my way I don't know if it is meant to be, but I See your reflection staring back at me Chorus Come take a walk with me now darling Come take a walk with me today Come take a walk with me now darling Come take a walk with me it's okay Verse I step left and you step to the right I close my eyes and then you're out of sight I don't know what it is I will say All I want is for you to come my way Chorus Bridge He walks in and takes your eyes from me, what do you see Another bearded wearing, skinny jeans, wanna be Can’t you see that I’ve got all you need, just believe So come with me Chorus

Need Love 03:27
Need Love By Curt Yagi Verse Remember when we lived without a care No worries, not even a burden to bear Young and innocent, the world was good to me Dark skies, it's getting hard to see Dad was a teacher who could pay the bills Happy family complete with lots of frills Those are just memories of my mind Fading quickly from my head I always find Tide has turned but not in the best of ways Crashing down makes me long for my younger days Why don't I see that here today Just a handful seem to live that way Chorus All I need is love to save the day…All I need is love it’s gone away All I need is love…All I need All I need is love Verse Big words never gonna extricate The beating heart of the Golden Gate Will a change ever come my way Thick fog from the breakers to the bay Don’t make me get political? Age has gotten you blind so cynical We pick a side just to fight with each other People suffer no love for one another Chorus All we need is love straight from the soul…All we need is love to take control All I need is love…All I need All I need is love Verse Just want to live my every day Morning tea and then I’m on my way Not a lot it takes to fill me up A little cream to pour inside my cup Don’t need first class or a fancy car Take me fast it just won’t get me far Keep on living the best that is for me All I need is knowing who I’ll be Chorus All I need is love to save the day…All I need is love to pave the way All I need is love…Follow me All we need is love

Not Gonna Lie By Curt Yagi Verse I can tell you that our eyes were locked a never ending gaze Two different people come together in a special kind of way Stars aligned to bring us close enough to find each other Such a fascinating story we will tell Chorus I'm not gonna lie, I didn't meet her when the clock struck noon in the middle of central park I'm not gonna lie, I didn't catch her eyes across a crowded super mart I won't make up words to sell you on my fairly tale I'm not gonna lie, No, I met her online Verse Exchanging messages like long lost friends ignite a fire Unexpecting unsuspecting of our desire Connected souls who find that quietness is often freeing Such a fascinating story that we have Chorus Bridge It doesn't matter how we met or what we'll tell them All I care is I found you Chorus

Everything’s All Right By Curt Yagi Verse 1 Longer days, heart can bear, eyes can see, despair Emptiness, takes control, light has fallen, lost its glow Helplessness, blurs the line, can’t you see the sign Reach within, realize, live your life Chorus Everything’s all right Dry your eyes on me tonight Trust my soul and see my light Everything’s all right Everything’s all right Verse 2 Brighter days, always find, every time, peace of mind See my eyes, look inside, deep inside, step the line Give you my, soul to hold, just grab hold, take control Hard to hold, heart and soul, more than you know Chorus Bridge Can’t make you see…it’s gotta be Chorus (2x)

Promise 03:51
Promise By Curt Yagi Verse I can't promise you sunshine When the blue skies turn grey I can't be your silver platter In every dreadful darkest day Pre Chorus I can't tell you this rain will go away For you I’m promising…all my better days Chorus I'll give you every day now Verse I can't promise you the world's riches Or the finest silk around Just a guy here on two feet With his head down to the ground Pre Chorus I can't say that the rain will go away For you I’m promising…all my better days Chorus I'll give you every day now I’ll give you every day now You’ve got me every day now Bridge I can't believe what you've made of me Opened my heart to a better part of me Chorus I'll give you every day, I promise every day…I’ll give you every day now I’ll give you every day, I’ll give you every day…I’ll give you every day now I'll give you every day, I promise every day…You’ve got me every day now

You know the saying “music is a labor of love?” Well, I’ve learned this to be true. I always think that recording music will be a quick and easy task, but it never is. Between scheduling musicians, tracking days where my voice won’t cooperate and listening to a track hundreds of times, it is a process that takes time and energy and never goes as smoothly as I’d hope for. Looking back, I appreciate all of the nuances that go into the process as they keep me grounded and allow me to grow as a musician. I hope you enjoy all of the time, energy and love that went into these songs. Thanks to Kitt and Adam for sticking with me and performing at countless shows (I know, the Hawaii tours are painful). Thanks to Jordan for sitting in on the Hammond B3 and simply killing it. Thanks to Matt for being one of the best in the business and being able to read my mind and nail all of those sweet guitar licks (you always seem to know the right thing to play). Thanks to Kimiko for stepping into that vocal booth, taking some simple cues and creating some magical vocal harmonies that were absolutely perfect. Finally, a huge shout out to Charlie who embraced my vision and completely ran with it so much further than I thought was possible.
