Melissa Taylor-Gates Hearing her sing this in person was an experience. Music doesn't always make me feel things deep inside, but this song in particular did. Favorite track: Werewolf.

The Girl 05:14
starry eyed and terrified, i try to catch the girl gentle, kind, childish figure girl. she’s everything i want to be, i want to be like her gentle, kind, childish figure girl. i don’t want to grow up anymore i want to stay my age i want to not grow old i don’t want to grow up anymore i want to be myself i want to be someone else. i want to be like the girl pale stare and long blonde hair she dances down the beach perfectly, childish figure girl this vision i’ve affixed of her is simply out of blue the obsession with the childish figure girl i don’t want to grow up anymore it just seems unfair, why should i have to bare this? i don’t want to grow up anymore have to learn, have to break, have to learn from my mistakes. i want to be like the girl

I'm Home 03:28
i've been gone for a very long time for a very long time indeed for so long from maple trees, across to the channel sea but now i'm home and i can't believe the times that just ran along but man, it's good to be home yeah, it's good to be home i lived upon a hilltop dressed in a thousand shades of green, a castle on a hill and in the trees a pond where birds would call their very own but now they've flown back home they say, it's good to be home. and we'd all say that every single stone that ever laid was us in the foundations of the clay the stars at night, the way i left my old self back behind something i'd know when i was home yeah, it's good to be home. but i couldn't help the way i felt my heart would pull away just to think about this very same old place familiar cash machines, teenage streets, the way the sidewalks sway my thoughts everyday yeah, it's good to be home.

i knocked on the door of boo radley no kiss or hug presented me quick panic and slow words makes me hollow to feel anything and you try not be get upset rewind, configure on what you said but you can't, no you can't understand and you wish it would all just stop collect the past and turn into dust but you can't, no you can't understand i wish i could bite my tongue stop messing up i wish i was strong as steel and learn to be patient and wise but enough is just not enough when you are born to a family of roughs and you slant, you start to slant off the edge you try not to get upset but you break and bust up your glass fingers again no, you can't, no you can't understand

Hearts 02:58
when the sun is shining up above on me i'll feel it in my heart when your love is being good or bad to me i'll thank you from the start cause i'll feel it in my heart i went and wasted wasteful things on me and i could not see you were always right beside me it was raining everyday on my tropical plain but now i see behind the scenes on what you're doing for me when the sun is shining up above on me i'll feel it in my heart when your love is being good or bad to me i'll thank you from the start cause i'll feel it in my heart i wish that i could fill your shoes and finally see how it would be to make someone the fool how i wish i could be the karma under everyone's feet well actually, i think i might be happy being me when the sun is shining up above on me i'll feel it in my heart when your love is being good or bad to me i'll thank you from the start cause i'll feel it in my heart

The Gardener 05:26
somedays you tousle mildly my thoughts inside of me think how its been somedays you come in mornings like early mist it comes and goes away i want to walk away i have to say this i used to think like that too it's not the same when i chase his name i don't want to float anymore i have to leave this no, i can't stay that's all i have to say

Roots 02:56
all my thoughts are tumbling these days all my worries in a haze took my worries, threw them out with you took my love and divided it in two cause i am a tree, with deep roots in the ground and nothing can bring me down words are just words if that's all that they are so darling, turn that stone to a heart sticks and stones can make me bold but the peace in my feet completes me cause i am a tree, with deep roots in the ground and nothing can bring me down you can say what you want, do whatever you please but nothing can bring down me.

Amadeus 03:32
you approached me from the room over there maybe it was the way you stared but i thought you were nice, thought you were cool so we went and got married right after school moved to california that day, and you were never, ever the same so, i went outside and climbed a tree i'm just trying to tell you that i'm going to leave goodbye amadeus i'm gunna miss our lives i'm gunna miss our fights goodbye amadeus i'm gunna miss our lives and when we said... radiate some heat against me my toes are getting cold beside yours i'm just trying to make my life here but it's kinda hard when i despise you cause you're getting pretty cocky these days your ego is getting more, and more insane i never said that you were handsome i'm just trying to make a ransom goodbye amadeus i'm gunna miss our lives i'm gunna miss our fights goodbye amadeus i'm gunna miss our lives and when we said... radiate some heat against me my toes are getting cold beside yours i turned left and i was right about seeing you in the corner of my eye since then, you've grown a beard and you're on the sidewalk asking for beer ten years past and its been so long since i last heard you sing our wedding songs the next day i picked up the paper to read and the headline screamed the death of amadeus goodbye amadeus i'm gunna miss our lives i'm gunna miss our fights goodbye amadeus i'm gunna miss our lives and when we said... radiate some heat against me my toes are getting cold beside yours goodbye

i can see as you walk through the door all your tear drops and sweat have been poured it's been a long day every smile and idea you compose is attached to the love that your mold and your hands break every step likes to string you along until you've stretched the whole earth and you fall and there's still a long ways there's still a long ways to go little minstrel, you play your lute and break your back to play in empty rooms it's been a long day
10.
blue skies, i've got my head down low today i don't know what to say this time nobody's got a say so i'll just sit here and wait for the answer where am i going today, or any day this dysfunction leads me to one place back in your arms where i belong in that perfect place but i saw a pathway with no knowing, of where do i go, and what's past my own road no, i don't even know and i saw a cardinal in the oak tree red as blood and he just flew away why can't i be that way it's all you, lord this dysfunction leads me to one place back in your arms where i belong

about

"On JoJo Worthington’s January full-length release, 7: Let’s just say I did not know a ukulele could do that.

Worthington’s inventive use of the ukulele combined with her soft yet poignant voice and an ear for building up songs using both instruments and their players in the most aurally pleasing fashion makes for a divine listening experience.

The album is titled 7, the number of completion, Worthington notes. She says, 'the album represents a journey of finding completion and satisfaction in life. As the audience progresses through each song, my hopes is for the listener to find some type of satisfaction and reassurance, contentment or a sigh of relief.'"- Griffin Elliot - The Scene Magazine
