freddy monday

“Words In Pencil” is the debut solo release by songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Freddy Monday. The 11 new melodic pop rock songs all penned and produced by Monday show off Freddy’s flair for melody and his ear for hooks. He proves his multi-instrumental talents by playing all the instruments and adding all the vocals. After several CD releases with popular Long Island band Sorethumb, Freddy felt it was time to break out on his own.

Since then he has been a full-time musician and currently performs over 100 shows a year. Freddy has built a solid following at clubs and colleges in the northeast.

Lyrics

Blow Up The World

Written By: Freddy Monday


She was cold in the darkness
When I held her in her sleep
Naked clowns at the window in the garden
Turn their heads around and

See me laughing
But there's no fun in it
I believe
The sign in front of me

Baby blow up the world
Maybe you'll be right on time to explode
Baby blow up the world
It turned out to only be a sun shower
And you'll be blowing up the world

Believe the day will soon be shinning
Won't be stepping on our feet
Any how there's a rainbow in the garden
Just turn your head around and

See me laughing
And they'll be fun in it
Cause I can see
The flowers from the weeds

Baby blow up the world
Maybe you'll be right on time to explode
Baby blow up the world
Maybe you'll come on in out of the cold
Baby blow up the world
It turned out to only be a sun shower
And you'll be blowing up the world

Look at all the lonely people saying yeah
saying yeah...
Look at all the lonely people saying yeah
saying yeah...

Your Own Shadow

Written By: Freddy Monday

Will you row your boat ashore
And see what you can find
When your held in the under toe
Hold your head up high

A silent spirit cries inside
In doubt of who you are
While you hide between the lines
Frightened in the dark
Life is one damn thing after another
You will find
You’ll be fine

You’re afraid of your own shadow
Now isn’t that good
You’re afraid of being happy
But you know that you should
You should
Isn’t it time for you to see
All the things that you can be
Take a look at your own shadow
Now isn’t that good

No such thing as impossible
Believe in who you are
You can fly high up in the clouds
And never touch the ground
Turn around
Turn around

It’s like walking on a wire
You’ve been burned by your desire
You’ve been lied to by a liar
I could tell you would stand up when you fell
Keep pulling wishes from your well
Now it’s time for you
It’s time for you right now to be yourself

It's What You Get

Written By: Freddy Monday

I've been standing on a hilltop
And I've been waiting for the sun to come down
If I could fly away I would
But my wings are broke and I'd crash down

Who was the girl who left here on a Monday
Said all I was doing was making you cry
Took my suitcase and everything that I'd put in it
Hung me out to dry

Somebody said that love was just a superstition

It's not what you want
It's what you get
It's not what you're saying
Because you might forget, you might forget
It's not what you want that makes you happy I know
It's what you get

Well I'm reading your soaking wet letter
And I'm hidding underneath a tree
I thought I drew a whisper
Calling out to me

Somebody said that love was just a superstition
Just when I think I've got it figured then I don't

It's not what you want
It's what you get
It's not what you're saying
Because you might forget, you might forget
It's not what you want that makes you happy I know
It's what you get
