Where to Go

Written By: Elise O'Neil

WHERE TO GO
Songwriter, singer, guitarist and keys: Elise O’Neil
Recording, bass, drums and backing vocals: Andy O’Neil
Backing vocals: Siboney Doglio

VERSE ONE
I’ve been around now, got something else to write about.
A little more perspective and a little less in my bank account!
I’ve walked a mile with a broken back and a heavy bag,
And sometimes time just seemed to lag
It was really racing by me...

CHORUS
Do you ever wonder? Do you ever worry?
That life is going oh so fast, and you don’t know where it’s going?
Do you ever wonder? Do you ever know?
The highs and lows
The money woes
But I don’t know where to go know, where to go

VERSE TWO
I’ve been to cities where I feel so small I can’t explain
Its like someone with an accent is doing my own thing
I’ve been too places where I feel above it all
Now I know if you’re scared to fall you’re not living at all

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Nothing’s changed, everything’s so similar
I’m not the same; I guess I need to find my way.
Slow down: Don’t look back, don’t turn around
Where to go?

VERSE 3
Well I’m home now, got to go to work and can’t be late.
Got to live out of a wardrobe,
Got to gym it up and lose some weight!
They say that travelling isn’t reality,
But I could live in ignorance so blissfully

BREAKDOWN
Do you ever wonder? Do you ever worry?
That life is going oh so fast and you don’t know where it’s going?
Do you ever wonder? Do you ever worry?
That life is going oh so fast and you don’t know where it’s going?
Do you ever wonder? Do you ever worry?
That life is going oh so fast and you don’t know where it’s going?

FINAL CHORUS

Lady with a Baby

Written By: Elise O'Neil

LADY WITH A BABY

She called me up the other day
Thought my experience would help her out some way
But trust me, lady,
You're the king of strong I could only long for

She takes it all right in her stride
So easy and so comfortable she barely even cried

But life goes on
And though you are so young
You are strong
And right where you belong

I feel like I should offer her my shoulder
But shes standing so straight I don't need to hold her
But even if you fall down later
There are plenty of us to save her

Because life goes on
And you are so young
You don't have to be strong
Because we're right where we belong

There's plenty of reason to be scared
And you may not feel like you're prepared

Cos soon you'll be a lady with a baby
And soon you'll be a -cradling, and sleep-deprivated
But lady, you'll be fine

Because one way or another,
you're really going to be the best mother

Because life goes on
And though you are so young
You are strong
And right where you belong
