"The Pink Pearl Dragon expertly captures an empathy within the listener that parallels the experience of such gorgeous colors and the sort of emotional content that makes tears slightly sting the eyes as they well up, but feeling relaxed and unburdened all at once". Andrew James - TPR Mag.com

ABOUT THE FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM:

In 2002, The Pink Pearl Dragon moved to Melbourne to experience the Australian music scene. While there, she met John Noonan, an amazing and gifted and kind guitarist who, together, the two began ADHD the band. They spent a year creating a rock influenced album, with creative artistic influences from old 80's films and classical rock. The first album was supposed to reflect the anxiety and paranoia of the encroaching new millennium: it seemed like everything was a copy at the time and nothing was original. The album was influenced by Classic Rock, Grunge, and 80s New Wave - like ADHD is attention deficit and a hyper active disorder - so is the music. The influences varied, and the focal point, allusive, the album was produced two years later in Canada, and performed by an all-girl band for 2007 and then a new band in 2008. The main song writer and creator The Pink Pearl Dragon continues to work as an entrepreneur in a variety of industries, while continuing the band in Toronto. Now, main players are living all over the world. There have been many members of ADHD the band, and each new member provides a unique element to the music being re-created. In 2007, ADHD the band was all girls. Now, ADHD the band is still re-forming and re-creating itself with an entire new image and new members for the band. The new album currently being written is going to be influenced more by Classic Rock, 80s Rock and Pop, and dance music.

I want to go to the store
to buy some bread
give me some money
I'll fill my head

I want some money
to go to the store
give me your money
now give me some more

I want to go to the store
to buy some bread
give me your money
Ill fill my head

Oh My god
what have I done
I went with him
when you were the one
now all he does
is talk about his car
but you were
my shining star

if I only I knew
that nerds became cool
you would have been
the king of my high school

I was so pretty then
I was too pretty to think
I was so pretty then
i was too pretty to think

Oh my god
you look so good now
you program computers
like oh my god wow
he blew his money
selling bad art
he should have invested
more time in my heart

ETC

wish you were here

Written By: Rina Rosen


I wish you were here
So I could feel whole again
Because you are my friend
at least you try to be
I wish you were here
so Im not alone
I wish you were
to tell me its alright
I try to judge you
and rarely succeed
you leave me releived
you leave me to breathe
if I ever neglect you
Im sure you tell me
if you ever love me
I know Ill make you angry
Ill only make you angry
Ill make you angry
repeat
I wish you were here
so I could feel whole again
because you are my friend
at least you try to be

Ode to Modonna

Written By: Rina Rosen

Last night when I came on home
I felt so bad I thought that I could die
I dont know why
you took me by the hand
and sat with me while I just screamed and cried
I dont know why
You think you know how I feel
and you tell me your love is real
but I know you will never change
when I feel sad and blue
sometimes you think you know what to do
but I know you will never change
Last night when I came on home
I felt so bad because I knew you lied
I dont know why
You took me by the hand and sat with me
while I knew that you lied
I dont know why
repeat chorus

Fields of Joni

Floating
Drifting
many dreams and wishing
Together
were stronger
Forever well be together
Hold my hand we're almost there
I got the Joy for Love
No one else Does

Got no anger for you
my brother
I only want whats best
for you
my sister

I got the joy for love
no one else does
