about

OVER is a story about the different ways we view and experience falling in and out of love. Love can be found or taken from us. Love is re-discovered, feared, protected and even lost. It can change right before our eyes in seconds and other times change over a lifetime. Love can blind us, heals us and even fade to nothing. What an amazing, powerful and controversial 4 letter word.

This album is inspired and influenced by the different SOUL / R&B eras. You may hear some STEVIE WONDER, PRINCE, MICHAEL JACKSON & SLY STONE. You'll also hear more current influences such as JAMIROQUAI, STING, ROBIN THICKE, D'ANGELO and more.....

Enjoy the album, and don't forget to spread the joy of music wherever you go. It is a true universal language.
JA

Track Name: Over
Verse 1:
I was so in love with you back when you were a dancer.
I asked you for a lifetime then but you never, you never answered.
Times have changed I hear you're with a genius of mathematics.
You wear his ring around your finger but you know you shouldn't have it.

Pre:
I think about that old love. I think about you and I.
Well I know that you think you're in love, but leave him behind.

Chorus:
Go tell him that it's over. Go tell him that it's done.
Go tell him that it's over. Cause you know I'm the only one.

Verse 2:
Kept trying to erase you from my memory. I couldn't do it.
Trying to trick my mind into thinking you weren't good enough for me.
No I couldn't fool it. No no no.

Pre:
I think about our old love. I think about you and I.
I know you say that you're in love. But don't waste your time.

Chorus:
Go tell him that it's over. Go tell him that it's done.
Go tell him that it's over. Cause you know I'm the only one.
I'm the only one.

Bridge:
I know I was wrong when I was young
But I am so sure that you're the one for me.
Oh and I know I'm making you choose.
But you see I'll never stop fighting for you.

Chorus:
Go tell him that it's over. Go tell him that it's done.
Go tell him that it's over. Cause you know I'm the only one.
(Only one, only one, only one)
Go tell him that it's over. Go tell him that it's done.
Go tell him that it's over. Cause you know I'm the only, only one.

Outro
Track Name: Crash Test X
Verse 1:
I miss the way that you undress when we're alone.
That little face you make confessing when you're wrong.
I miss the things we did, I'd do them all again.
But tell me love where have you been.

Verse 2.
I miss the way you'd always, always change your mind.
You'd never sleep because you hated wasting time.
It's good to see you, yes I'm glad you made the call.
But am I here to catch you fall?

Chorus:
You took the fast track, but now you've come back.
You never told me why you left.
You know I love you, but I don't trust you.
I cannot be your Crash Test X.

Verse 3:
Elevation was amazing in your eyes.
I use to think about, about us all the time.
I miss the arguments, I miss the making up.
I was just a fool in love.

Verse 4:
I was intoxicated by the things you say.
Oh, even now I look it's hard to look away.
It's good to see you, oh yes it's been too long,
But I can see that something is wrong.

Chorus (2x)

Bridge:
Hey, give it up. No, I cannot Crash Test your love. (4x)

Verse 5:
I hear you're out to dry, and that you've nothing left.
You made your bed but can't remember where you slept.
I want what's best for you, I want what's best for me.
So this time I think you'd better leave.

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: I Still Think About Us
Verse: 1
I don't care what I'm missing, I'm out of my mind.
I forget who I'm kissin' most every time.
I've seen all of the options, I've seen all the views.
I created the captions and spread all the news.

Pre:
I thought I'd forgotten about you.
I thought that I'd made up my mind.
I thought I'd forgotten about you.
I thought that I left it behind.

Chorus:
Then you come along and you do it again.
Then you come along put me through it again.
You come along and you do it again.
Through all my stubborn ways my pride and broken trust.
I still think about us. (Why can't I let go?)
I still think about us. (Why can't I let go?)

Verse 2:
I don't care what I'm missing, I'm out of my head.
I don't care who you're kissing, don't care who you've met.

Well I stopped hearing voices say go back to you.

--Pre--
--Chorus--

Tell why I still want you so bad? (So bad) Want you so bad.
I wish I could let you go right now (Right Now) but I would go mad.

Track Name: Slip Away
Verse 1:
Oh, give me something I can go on.
Oh, give me some kind of clue.
Are you trying to make me walk away.
Well that's one thing that I can't do.

You're tearing me away one word at a time.
And I'm just trying to block the wind from your face.
You're wearing me away one word at a time.
Oh you could have just told me to change.

Chorus:
I can do what you want me to do.
I can say what you want me to say.
I will do what you want me to do.
But I won't let you slip away. Away, away, away.

Verse 2:
Oh, I've tried to wash away your suspicions.
Rid you of your silly superstitions.
But now I can't recall the last time I heard you call my name.

You're tearing me apart one branch at a time.
When I'm just trying to keep you out of the rain.
You're wearing me away one piece at a time.
Oh could have just told me to change.

Chorus:
I can do what you want me to do.
I can say what you want me to say.
I will do what you want me to do.
But I won't let you slip away. Let you slip away.

Bridge:
Yes I've tried every combination
But every number seems to be wrong.
It's hard to hear what you've been saying.
Just because I've loved you so long.
Oh, you have to know.

Chorus:
I can do what you want me to do.
I can say what you want me to say.
I will do what you want me to do.
But I won't let you slip away. Away, Way, Away.
