Biography

I'm a southern California-based singer/songwriter. I write songs using easy-to-listen-to (I hope) major/minor chords. Most tunes tell of some sort of universally understood theme (love, violence, sex and death). As a songwriter, influences include the greats like Waits, Lucinda Williams, Lennon, Wilson (Brian) and Marley.
I write music for fun however I have reached a point in life where I'd like to see what others think and what I can add to the mix, so to speak. I like to write songs that are built on what I know and see. I absolutely enjoy writing and playing music. Thanks for listening.

Lyrics

Six Miles From Heaven

Written By: Jim Pantaleo

Six miles from heaven, what a beautiful site
I’ll be there by morning, drive all night
Ain’t gonna be easy, try though I may
I just don’t want to fade away

Six miles from heaven, and I’m ridin’ the line
Can’t drive any faster and I’m losing sweet, sweet time
Ain’t gonna be easy, try though I may
I just don’t want to fade away

Just once in your life time
It’s never the right time
Just hang on and you’ll find
The road has its bends

-solo

Six miles from heaven, I’ve been drivin’ for hours
Got my life time behind me, in the front the moon and stars
Ain’t gonna be easy, try though I may
I just don’t want to fade away

I just don’t want to fade away…..

Mr. Jetsetter

Written By: Jim Pantaleo

Hey Mr. Jetsetter (yeah you) You in the Prada shoes.
You're a real go-getter (magna cum laude) I bet you never lose.

You've got a girlfriend (man is she fine) but she's got a girlfriend too.
"It's OK" you say...Why? Because the only one you love, is you.

Hey Mr. Jetsetter - You think you could spare some change?
You see I'm trying to get back -
to my sweet home on the range.
Well that's not really the reason.
I think you know I've been lying to you. Since we're both liars, let's go have a drink or two.

Hey Mr. Jetsetter - You in the Prada shoes.
You're a real go-getter - I bet you never lose.

Motorin'

Written By: Jim Pantaleo

Look at me now, look at my face
The light behind it…gone without a trace

Motorin’, motorin’ down the road
Can’t stop I gotta go, drive you baby all night long
Yes I will drive you baby all night long

Every time I see that look in your eyes
Sunday morning before I rise I
Lay in bed and dream a while
I touch your face and I kiss your smile, alright

Cause I’m a motorin’, motorin’ down the road
Can’t stop I gotta go, drive you baby all night long
Yes I will drive you baby all night long

-solo-

Now your gone, gone bye-bye
Never more will I make you cry no-no
Turn me on engines wind
105 across state lines cause I’m a

Motorin’, motorin’ down the road
Can’t stop I gotta go, drive you baby all night long
Yes I will drive you baby all night long
Drive you baby all night long……
