Blackbird 04:35
Blackbird, have you heard winter song humming her tune Blackbird, heard you were planning on leaving us soon Oh oh ~~~ Oh oh Grey skies, sun is hiding, clouds shed a few tears for you Grey skies, say goodbye, blackbird and I bid adieu And we fly away homeward bound And try to get lost and found again for good You're here, I am gone, two ships that pass in the night Sure clear we are pawns that haven't quite figured it right So we fly away homeward bound And try to get lost and found again for good Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh ~~ Oh oh Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh ~~ Oh oh oh oh Fly away homeward bound Try to get lost and found I am yours and you are mine Here and now and all through time Our eyes meet, two hearts beat And I am weak in the knees on my feet Fly away homeward bound Try to get lost and found again for good Blackbird, have you heard, ooh Blackbird, heard you were...

Skeletons and ghosts wrapped around my tiny bones Dying but not alone Skeletons and ghosts trapped underground and far below Crying to shake me undone They whisper Ooh ooh~~ Tell me a story Sing me a song They whisper Ooh ooh ~~ Not long before we Are all of us gone Oh oh oh oh Skeletons and ghosts haunt me in my waking hours Weaving in and outside of my mind Oh oh oh Skeletons and ghosts taunt me as they take my power Leaving me to wrestle thoughts unkind They whisper Ooh ooh ~~ Tell me a story Sing me a song They whisper Ooh ooh ~~ Not long before we Are all of us gone Open your eyes, girl Before they stay closed Give life a try, girl Or you'll grow cold Skeletons and ghosts, unwrap from round my tiny bones Finding their way back home Oh oh oh

Mind your business, just mind your business Mind your business Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind Don't tell me what to do what to do You don't know what I'm going through And don't tell me how to feel or what's real That's not your deal, no no no I'm gonna say this nice and slow So you can know Just walk away And you have a nice day Mind your business, just mind your business Mind your business Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind Stop trying to undermine and define Stop feeding me the same old line I'm perfectly aware, I don't care You can take it all elsewhere We're gonna do this one more time With pantomime Just walk away And you have a nice day Mind your business, just mind your business Mind your business Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind You're incorrect, sir And not just politically A walking train wreck, sir, oh Mr. Personality Why don't you give it a rest now No one's impressed anyhow Whoa oh oh oh Mind your business, just mind your business... Mind your business... Why don't you worry 'bout yourself... Why don't you worry 'bout yourself Instead of everybody else We're all fine, whoa oh You crossed the line, no no no It's time for you to go 'Cause you're out of your mind Mind your business, ooh Yeah

The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues And in that moment what should I do I glance your way our eyes meet We make our way through the crowd We dance away our hearts in the clouds And I know it isn't right to mislead you But I know I can't fight the need to Hold you in my arms like we used to spend So I'll close my eyes and pretend The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues And in that moment what should I do I glance your way our eyes meet We make our way through the crowd We dance away our hearts in the clouds But the dreams of you and me have faded And I know that our love is jaded So just one more dance to cover up the lies Won't you hold my hand and fantasize La la la la la la la la la la Ooh ~~~ ah ~~ The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues And in that moment what should I do I glance your way our eyes meet We make our way through the crowd We dance away our hearts in the clouds

Hotsy Totsy Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Hotsy Totsy is a refreshing, indie pop band out of Philadelphia, PA. This trio gives a smart wink and nod to the golden age of girl groups past and pulls that harmony driven sound forward into the present with renewed relevance.
