BandFolk

We play upbeat acoustic music somewhere in between Jack Johnson and Sublime. We have Jordan Markus on guitar and vocals, and a second guitar/bass play, and sometimes have a percussion (not a full drum kit) player if it fits the venue. We like to play fun music that people can move to and feel good about.

Lyrics

Paradise

Written By: Jordan Markus

Well I think that paradise is right around the corner
And I think it might be nice, maybe a little warmer
I think that there’s an ocean, maybe a little sand
And there’s probably a pretty girl there holding my hand
And I’m layin in my hammock cuz I got nothin to do
A list of priorities well that be something new
I do what I want, I don’t keep track of time
And I don’t ever worry cuz everything’s already fine

And I just want to be
Carefree
No I don’t want you to worry
Cuz I just wanna be
Carefree

It has nothing to do with being richer than kings
All I want to do is just live within my means
And I’ll be satisfied if I can fulfill my dreams
Find that pretty girl to be right there next to me
I just wanna see the world I wanna play my guitar
Meet lots of good people and make it really far
And making people happy is all I really want
Help them forget their problems as they sing along

And I just want to be
Carefree
No I don’t want you to worry
Cuz I just wanna be
Carefree

Oh just be carefree
Don’t you worry bout a thing
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry now
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry now
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry now
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, don’t you worry bout a thing

Top of the Tree

Written By: Jordan Markus

Oh I wish that you had come with me
Cuz now I’m up here in this tree
All alone
All alone
And I climbed up here thinking you would follow
But now my heart feels hollow
Where
Could you be

Well I hope, that one day you’ll follow me
Oh I hope, that one day you’ll follow me

I guess I will climb a little higher
Maybe that would light a little fire
Underneath
Your feet
Then I think I’ll hang upside down
Try to make my world spin round
So
Dizzy

And I hope, that one day you’ll follow me
Oh I hope, that one day you’ll follow me

So follow, follow, follow me
And maybe one day you will see
That I might actually have a clue
Know where I’m going, might know what to do
So follow, follow, follow me
I’m going all the way to the top of the tree
So come with me so you can see for yourself
For yourself
