Hold Me Now
Music by Andi Starr

Lyrics by And Starr & S. Asher Sund

Hold me now,
hold me now,
before the sun goes down,
sun goes down.

Hold me now,
hold me now.

Feel my breath
against your skin;
against my skin,
your heartbeat
is all there is,
is all there is.

Hold me now
now, now,
hold me now…

Your heartbeat
is all there is,
is all there is.

Hold me now…

Entrance 
Music by Andi Starr
Lyrics by And Starr & S. Asher Sund

You came to my door
with a heartbeat,
looking for me. And I found

it very difficult to pack
through all these tears
for me and you.

My heart to you.

Entrance to entrance;
there is no point of return.
That’s what you said.
That’s what you said.

No time to second-guess.
Look ahead, my love.
Let’s revolve, evolve,
through these doors.

But aren’t you scared
to do it alone? you asked.

No, not at all. Revolve
through these doors.

Entrance to entrance—
there is not point of return.
That’s what you said.
That’s what you said.

My heart to you.
My heart to you.

Evolve, revolve, evolve, revolve, evolve…


Driving for the Sun
Music by Andi Starr, Jeremy Fanders, Madison Christine, Gregg Hardy & Nicholas Hall
Lyrics by S. Asher Sund

My dear brother, I’m leaving town today,
wish it didn’t have to be. In another life
we could have made something, you and me.

My dear brother, I’m so sad for what was
and what could have been. Take care, okay,
and don’t worry about me. I may be crying,
but my baby is here to remind me, singing:

Leaving all our troubles behind us love,
we’re leaving all our troubles behind.
That old striving has no meaning when we’re
driving for the sun, driving for the sun.

My dear brother, why all these celebrated
stories of mediocrity? Should I be thankful
for the selfish notion of generosity?

My dear brother, I’m so sad for what was
and what could have been. Take care, okay,
and don’t worry about me. I may be crying,
but my baby is here to remind me, singing:

Leaving all our troubles behind us love,
we’re leaving all our troubles behind.
That old striving has no meaning when we’re
driving for the sun, driving for the sun.

Driving for the sun,
driving for the sun,
driving for the sun,
driving for the sun.

Jealousy
Music by Andi Starr

Lyrics by Andi Starr & S. Asher Sund

Behind us is the garden set
where a serpent first directed us
out of the scene. All
alone we fall into love,
and together we fall apart.

Chorus:

I’ve got this rock in my pocket
that hasn’t made it out to sea.
I want you to be free
but I’m too full
of jealousy, jealousy.

Where the movie ends
after the first kiss
is where the work
of loving begins. All
alone we fall into love,
and together we fall apart.

Chorus

I’ve got this rock in my pocket
that hasn’t made it out to sea.
I want you to be free
but I’m too full
of jealousy, jealousy, jealousy, jealousy.

I’ve got this rock in my pocket
that hasn’t made it out to sea….

out to sea
out to sea
jealousy

Let You Go
music by Andi Starr

lyrics by Andi Starr and S. Asher Sund

All these limitations—
stuck in a parking lot,
searching for my station
while circling for a spot,
circling for a spot.

I’m going to stand by your side
even as I let you go.
I’m going to stand by your side
even as I let you go.

All this trepidation—
your thoughts in gothic font,
looking for teenage salvation;
I just don’t know what to say,
don’t seem to have the right cliché.

I’m going to stand by your side
even as I let you go.
I’m going to stand by your side
even as I let you go.

Nothing is as it seems my dear.
It’s a psychic game.
Too tired now to fight with you,
let’s love each other through the change.

I’m going to stand by your side
even as I let you go.
I’m going to stand by your side
even as I let you go.

Damnit, I’ve got to let you go.
Damnit, I’ve got to let you go.


Resignation II
music by Andi Starr
lyrics by Andi Starr and Alex Ehrenreich Husted Brockdorff
(verses from his poem, “Resignation II,” adapted by Andi Starr and S. Asher Sund)

I am who I am I am, like no other.
I am complicated, working out of order.
I’m perfect at being imperfect.
I’m a little like my father.

We are not made of paper
We’re not made of paper
We’re not made of paper

I’m gonna walk these miles without a destination.
A little confused, with a lot of frustration,
Hanging on to memories of what used to be:
You and me before all this devastation.

We are not made of paper
We’re not made of paper
We’re not made of paper

A hundred battles won for every thousand lost.
All I want is what I value most:
A normal life, a loving wife,
But wars I’ve made with the things I’ve said.

So I walk in sorrow …
with half a heart letting my other half stay
So I walk in sorrow …
with half a heart letting my other half stay

We are not made of paper
We’re not made of paper
We’re not made of paper

Glory, Ohio
music by Andi Starr & Kevin Whalen

lyrics by Andi Starr & S. Asher Sund

The night is gone.
I am up at dawn.
The silver plane in the rain
is shiny, ready, waiting,
for the trip across,
for the trip across.

Glory, Ohio,
in all this empty blue
Glory, Ohio,
I see the hope for me and you.

Everybody’s here,
including Cordelia and Lear.
I saw Crazy Tom
in a strip down at security.
Is this a tragedy or a new opportunity?
Is this a tragedy or a new opportunity?

Glory, Ohio,
in all this empty blue
Glory, Ohio,
I can see the hope for me and… you.

My sweet dear,
there is no need to despair,
just cuz I couldn’t tell you
what you wanted to hear.
My silence is nothing to fear.
My silence is nothing to fear.
My silence is nothing to fear.

Glory, Ohio,
in all this empty blue
Glory, Ohio,
what do you say we call a truce?
What do you say we call a truce?

Cuz there’s hope for me and you.
And I’ve made some mistakes in my life, too.

Honey Bee (Sorry)
music by Andi Starr

lyrics by Andi Starr and S. Asher Sund

I’m sorry, sorry I suspected romance.
I’m sorry I expected a royal response.
I’m sorry for my soft honey gaze,
my tongue, my lungs, my unpredictable rage.
I’m sorry for drinking all your wine
and for pollinating all your time.
I’m sorry for this lame apology, but you see:

I have been roaming from morning to night
like a bee seeking nectar,
wondering where my sweetness will lie
if you don’t carry it anymore.

I have been roaming from morning to night
like a busy bee seeking nectar,
wondering where my sweetness will lie, honey,
if you don’t carry it anymore.

I keep searching the same old flowers;
what can I say, I’m a drone for tired clichés
of red roses and pink champagne and
crème brûlée, but sometimes
above the din I can hear my own queenship
calling me in, and for this, at risk of breaking
the rules of the hive, I fly on and on and on, you see:

I have been roaming from morning to night
like a bee seeking nectar,
wondering where my sweetness will lie
if you don’t carry it anymore.

I have been roaming from morning to night
like a busy bee seeking nectar,
wondering where my sweetness will lie, honey,
if you don’t carry it anymore.

Just Kids
music by Andi Starr

lyrics by Andi Starr & S. Asher Sund
[words in quotes are from Patti Smith’s memoir, Just Kids]

“Secretly, I knew I had been transformed,
moved by the revelation of his words:”

“He wrote me a note to say
we would create art together and
we would make it with or without
the rest of the world.”

We were just kids
trying to make it.
We will make it;
tell us we will make it.

“He never seemed to question his artistic drive,
and by his example I understood
that what matters most is… the work.”

We were just kids
trying to make it.
We will make it;
tell us we will make it (2x).

Patti, Patti, hold my hand
for another minute or two,
and after I’m gone
please write the story
about me and you.

Robert, here it is,
the story of us:
two lovers, two artists,
two lovers, two artists,
just kids.

Diamond Sea
music by Andi Starr

lyrics by Andi Starr and S. Asher Sund

The seashore calls
and I fear
my own light
fading away.
I lost my direction in the ocean,
now plagued by doubt:

Am I in, or am I out?
Am I in, or am I out?

The deep sea calls
and I ask,
“Can you send for help?”
I hear it say, “There is
a dying line
being cast about.”

Am I in, or am I out?
Am I in, or am I out?

Then I awaken
to this rivalry,
blue water in me,
the diamond sea.

Then I awaken
in this revelry,
blue water in me,
the diamond sea.

Am I in, or am I out?
Am I in, or am I out?

Sing Along
music by Andi Starr
lyrics by S. Asher Sund

They anoint your body, dress you in a robe.
They light the incense, put you in the hull
and shove you off; this isn’t so miserable
until I get home, and I’m alone. Sing along.

I wonder if the water is cold.
I wonder if the water goes below.
I wonder in the Beyond if the river
is made of “sorry for your loss, so sorry for your loss”—
sing along, sing along, sing along.

You had the words, I held the melody.
You had the words, but now you’re gone.
I would like to think the river is made of our song.
If it helps, sing along, sing along, sing along, sing along…
