Pop, Jazz and Country blended into a smooth style all my own. As if Bonnie Raitt changed bodies with Norah Jones, then met Annie Lennox for coffee while she was hosting Ella Fitzgerald's soul....

Lyrics

Hazy Moon

Written By: Deborah Thacker

Hazy Moon
Drifting from view
Milky Way
tops to say
Hello

Distant star
Shining from afar
I wish I'll send
From a friend
Below

It's Alright, OK

lyrics by D.Thacker, M. Kassen
music by D. Thacker

When you're lost in the middle of the longest night
Yeah, you're gonna be alright
When it's all said and done at the end of the day
Yeah, Yyou're gonna be ok
When you know that you're coming to the end of the line
Yeah, you're gonna be just fine

When you think another got it better than you
I'm here to say that it's not true
Just crazy little lies in your mind foolin you with fear
Time to let go of what you're scared of
And Trust you're all taken care of
Everything you need, everything is already here

When you're lost in the middle of the longest night
Yeah, you're gonna be alright
When it's all said and done at the end of the day
Yeah, Yyou're gonna be ok
When you know that you're coming to the end of the line
Yeah, you're gonna be just fine

Remember everybody's running in the same race
Everybody's come from the same place
Gotta move on from the past and laying blame
Time to Let go of what we're scared of
You see there's only ONE LOVE
And all odds are even by the end of the game

Chorus

You're already alright
You're already ok
You're already just fine (repeat, build up)
