Second Nature

Second Nature

BandPopRock

We have a wonderful pop rock sound with songs that will stick in your head, and pleasantly surprise you. The vocals are outstanding with three part harmonies reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac. The musicianship shines and the songs are nothing short of professional.

Biography

We're all about the songs! We have received recognition and praise for not only our songwriting, but also our performances on our latest CD "Innocenz Lozt". We have been named a finalist in the 2005 International Song of the Year contest for the month of October for the song "Cyan Sky" and also been named a Suggested Artist in January 2006 by the Song of the Year Staff for our performance in "See You Again". We have received an "Honorary" award by the 2005 Great American Songwriting Contest judges for the song "I Knew A Girl" and have received five different honorable mentions in the 2005 BillBoard World Song Contest.

We have two lead female vocalists and one lead male vocalist to choose from when deciding how to best perform our originals. We have a strong Beatle and Fleetwood Mac influence. We have been playing together for about 15 years now and we are more than just best of friends - we are a family.

In the beginning we played mostly covers at bars every weekend in the Western MA/CT Valley area. Then as our original music developed more and more, we placed more focus on the original music. Our first demo was a tape that was a free giveaway to fans and bar owners (Second Nature vs. Godzilla) that contained 4 covers and 6 originals. This was released back in 1994. With a more mature and exclusive focus on originals, we released our much acclaimed second CD "Innocenz Lozt" in 2004.

Now we have enough material for another CD with songs that have huge hit potential like "Someone Else", "Live Without You", and "Somebody Like Me". We will begin shopping around for a studio soon. Also, we still play live occasionally, sometimes at local bars, but mostly for charitable events. This includes the first and second annual Bike Ride for Cystic Fibrosis in memory of our good friend Jeremy Delphia as well as other numerous charitable events. Next year we will focus on our next CD and playing out at more venues to promote our music.

Cyan Sky

CYAN SKY 3/24/98 by Ed Piedra

I lost my love today - what else is there to say
I gave her all my love - it just wasn’t enough
It makes me really sad that I hurt you so bad
The night just seems so long - I know that I was wrong

I want you in my heart
I don’t know where to start
I want you in my days
‘Cause there you will remain
I want you in my dreams
And everywhere I’ve seen
A perfect cyan sky
There for you and I

I’m fighting all the pain and cleaning all the stains
Of things that I did wrong - a place I don’t belong
I’d like to make things right and stay with you tonight
‘Cause only then you’ll see that we were meant to be

I want you in my heart
I don’t know where to start
I want you in my days
‘Cause there you will remain
I want you in my dreams
And everywhere I’ve seen
A perfect cyan sky
There for you and I

If only you would take my hand
Then maybe you’d understand
Instead I’m left on my own
Just waiting for the - the day that you come home

Another day goes by and I begin to cry
‘Cause we just lost a day of happiness today
You threw away my love and everything that was
You say you need your ground, so tell me what you have found

I want you in my heart
I don’t know where to start
I want you in my days
‘Cause there you will remain
I want you in my dreams
And everywhere I’ve seen
A perfect cyan sky
There for you and I

I'll Be Your Man

Written By: Ed Piedra

You know that I lose it completely
When you’re not around, Baby
‘Cause you’re the one
Who completes me
Don’t forget. Don’t forget, Baby

Don’t run and hide from things inside
Cause it hurts now, Baby
Well, did somebody say?
That you can’t – Well you can
Oh yes, you can

If you wanted a chance - At love that just makes some sense
Look deep in my eyes - You’d know that I sympathize
If you want to feel whole - I’ll be the soup for your soul
Lost the best of your plans? - Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man

You start to run thinking you’ll find
A way out of this, Baby
Towards the sun
On the horizon
Want to fly – well, you got to fly
Somewhere around
Forget the ground
But you can’t now, Baby
Well, that’s O.K.
‘Cause on the ground – I’ll be found
Yeah, I’ll be found

If you wanted a chance - At love that just makes some sense
Look deep in my eyes - You’d know that I sympathize
If you want to feel whole - I’ll be the soup for your soul
Lost the best of your plans? - Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man

(You don’t know what you mean – to me)
Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man
(You don’t know what you mean – to me)
Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man

I don’t understand
Why can’t you just take a chance, Baby
I don’t understand
Why can’t you be free?
Well, come on, Baby

If you wanted a chance - At love that just makes some sense
Look deep in my eyes - You’d know that I sympathize
If you want to feel whole - I’ll be the soup for your soul
Lost the best of your plans? - Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man

(You don’t know what you mean – to me)
Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man
(You don’t know what you mean – to me)
Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man

(You don’t know what you mean – to me)
Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man
(You don’t know what you mean – to me)
Hold on ‘cause I’ll be your man

Gimme A Sign

Written By: Ed Piedra, Kristine Morrison, and Leo Betters

I met you here a year ago
You said you wanted to take it slow

That’s when you really started confusing me
Started saying things like “meant to be”

When you’re through dancing with everybody else
I’ll be the one sittin’ here all by myself
If you wanna meet me, Baby, just give me a sign
I’ll be here at closing time

When did things start to fall apart
When you left me, Baby, you broke my heart

You didn’t give me time to mend myself
I guess I’m here if no one else

I’m getting so tired of taking it well
Can we really do this – only time will tell
If you want to meet me, Baby, just give me a sign
I’ll be here at closing time

That’s when you really started confusing me
Started saying things like “meant to be”

When you’re through dancing with everybody else
I’ll be the one sittin’ here all by myself
I’m getting so tired of taking it well
Can we really do this – only time will tell
If you want to meet me, Baby, just give me a sign
I’ll be here at closing time
