Biography

Part of Fertitta and McClintock duo. Raised in the port town of Beaumont Texas, these two Forest Park High School mates were always involved in music from an early age. Leaving Beaumont for the big city of Houston, David Fertitta and Steven McClintock performed for the Steak and Ale chain as well as locking in the coveted club gig at the Lion Bar for the famed Galleria Houston Oaks Hotel. It was there Fertitta and McClintock’s unique acoustic sound was formed and their versatile writing skills honed. After a year they decided to head for Los Angeles, where in 1977, the pair quickly signed a publishing deal with Island Music (Lionel Conway) and subsequently a record deal with the legendary Clive Davis and his newly founded label Arista Records. Produced by the multi platinum Canadian producers Fred Mollin and Matthew McCauley celebrating a recent ..1 international hit with Dan Hill (Sometimes When We Touch), it seemed that Fertitta and McClintock were on their way. But as fate would have it, the business took a dramatic musical change into disco followed immediately by new wave and punk leaving Clive Davis and the producers at odds as to what direction to take the talented acoustic balladeers. The record was never released. The duet ended and both went on different musical paths collectively writing songs for movies and TV, commercial jingles and many other recording acts. Starting in the late 1970’s both had extensive cuts as songwriters with such artist as Juice Newton, Lorrie Morgan, Sixwire, Andy Williams, Tiffany, ATC, David Pomeranz, Victoria Shaw, Pat Boone, Diamond Rio, Paul Jefferson, Rose Maddox and dozens of foreign releases. Advance ahead 25 years to a chance meeting between the duo and their former producer Fred Mollin in Nashville at a Canadian industry event. Fred, having gone on to produce America, Eddie Money, Jimmy Webb, Kris Kristofferson to name a few, offered to finish the record that was never released. Fertitta and McClintock were back and on the move. Recording 14 songs in Nashville with some of the finest musicians alive today cutting songs from the past and present, selling out their first three shows in Los Angeles and basically continuing where they left off, this talent vocal duo is primed and ready to finish the job they started back in 1975. They are now seasoned professionals with a vocal sound and original music that rivals anything in the market place today or yesterday.

Lyrics

Do You Run

Written By: David Fertitta

DO YOU RUN

NOW IS THE TIME
IF YOU WAIT
YOU COULD MAKE YOURSELF SORRY

YOU ACT AS THOUGH YOUR CHANCES WON’T END
YES YOU DO
AND YOUR A FOOL TO BELIEVE IT

WHEN HE COMES HOME
DO YOU RUN
DO YOU RUN

WHEN HE COMES ON
DO YOU RUN
DO YOU RUN

WELL SHE JUST MIGHT IF YOU DON’T
AND HE SURE WILL IF YOU WON’T
OH NO

HEY WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU
DON’T YOU HEAR WHAT I SAY
CAN’T YOU SEE THAT IT’S TRUE

YOU SHOULD BE ON YOUR WAY HOME
LEAVING HIM THERE ALONE
YOU MIGHT FIND THAT HE’S GONE
THAT HE’S GONE

WHEN HE COMES HOME
DO YOU RUN
DO YOU RUN

WHEN HE COMES ON
DO YOU RUN
DO YOU RUN

If Love Is Blind

Written By: Steven McClintock, Tim James

IF LOVE IS BLIND

PEOPLE SAY THAT YOU'RE NO GOOD FOR ME
PEOPLE SAY IT CONSTANTLY
I HEAR IT SAID SO MUCH
I REPEAT IT IN MY SLEEP

MAYBE I AM JUST A FOOL FOR YOU
MAYBE YOU'RE NO ANGEL TOO
BUT ALL THAT TALK IS CHEAP
WHEN I'M ALONE WITH YOU

IF LOVE IS BLIND
I'LL FIND MY WAY WITH YOU
CAUSE I CAN'T SEE MYSELF NOT IN LOVE WITH YOU
IF LOVE IS BLIND
I'LL FIND MY WAY WITH YOU

ALL THE WORLD IS CRAZY ANYWAY
WHAT'S IT MATTER WHAT THEY SAY
IF I'M THE ONE THAT'S WRONG
THEN LET IT BE MY MISTAKE

IF LOVE IS BLIND
I'LL FIND MY WAY WITH YOU
CAUSE I CAN'T SEE MYSELF NOT IN LOVE WITH YOU
IF LOVE IS BLIND
I'LL FIND MY WAY WITH YOU

YOU WOULDN'T BE WITH ME TONIGHT
IF I DIDN'T FEEL I WAS RIGHT
WHAT WILL IT MATTER ANYHOW
A HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW?

CHORUS

All This Time

Written By: Steven McClintock, Tim James

ALL THIS TIME
I KNEW SOMEDAY YOU'D NEED TO FIND
SOMETHING THAT YOU LEFT BEHIND
SOMETHING I CAN'T GIVE YOU

ALL THESE YEARS
THEN LIKE A LIGHT LOVE DISAPPEARS
BUT HEARTS ARE GOOD FOR SOUVENIRS
AND MEM'RIES ARE FOREVER

ALL THIS TIME
ALL IN ALL I'VE NO REGRETS
THE SUN STILL SHINES
THE SUN STILL SETS
THE HEART FORGIVES
THE HEART FORGETS
BUT WHAT WILL I DO NOW WITH ALL THIS TIME

ONE MORE KISS
AND EVEN THOUGH IT'S COME TO THIS
I'LL CLOSE MY EYES AND MAKE A WISH
HOPING YOU REMEMBER

ALL THIS TIME....

SAY GOODBYE
APART WE'LL MAKE ANOTHER TRY
DON'T BE SORRY IF YOU CRY
I'LL BE CRYING TOO

ALL THIS TIME....

With This Kiss

Written By: McClintock, Shaw, Byrd

WITH THIS KISS OH CAN'T YOU FEEL IT
EVERY PROMISE WE MADE WE JUST SEALED IT
AS THESE HEARTS BEAT WILD ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS
WITH THAT MOON SMILING DOWN ON US
WELL, I FIGURE WE CAN’T MISS
WITH THESE HEARTS, WITH THAT MOON, WITH THIS KISS

IT ALMOST TAKES MY BREATH AWAY
WHEN WE'RE STANDING THIS CLOSE
THERE'S SO MUCH THAT I WANNA SAY, BUT I THINK YOU KNOW
I LOOK IN YOUR ANGEL EYES
AND I WANNA TAKE MY TIME

WITH THIS KISS, OH CAN'T YOU FEEL IT
EVERY PROMISE WE MADE WE JUST SEALED IT
AS THESE HEARTS BEAT WILD ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS
WITH THAT MOON SMILING DOWN ON US
WELL, I FIGURE WE CAN 'T MISS
WITH THESE HEARTS, WITH THAT MOON, WITH THIS KISS

I WAS DREAMING ABOUT
LOVE I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
YOU WERE WISHING ON A STAR
NOW IT’S PERFECTLY CLEAR
WHILE WE’RE BOTH HERE
THIS IS WHERE FOREVER STARTS

WITH THIS KISS, OH CAN'T YOU FEEL IT
EVERY PROMISE WE MADE WE JUST SEALED IT
AS THESE HEARTS BEAT WILD ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS
WITH THAT MOON SMILING DOWN ON US
WELL, I FIGURE WE CAN 'T MISS
WITH THESE HEARTS, WITH THAT MOON, WITH THIS KISS
WITH THESE HEARTS, WITH THAT MOON, WITH THIS KISS

Synchronize

Da da da da ... da da da da .... da da da da ...

I can never be you,you can never be me
I can do what you do,you can't see what i see

Like the sides of a coin
We got separate views
But when i need a friend
You are the one that i choose

We are better ... together
Whenever we get stars in our eyes
Synchronize

Like the moon with the tide
Like the day with the night
We are two parallel lines
Running side by side

We are the hands of a clock
We are the roll and the rock
And that's all part of why
You and i synchronize

Da da da da ...
Da da da da ...
Da da da da ...

We give and we take,
We know what we like
We don't always agree
But we are tighter than tight

You begin where i end
When you speak i react
It's the craziest thing
But we like it like that

The truth is
As long as we are gonna go
Along for the ride
Synchronize

Like the moon with the tide
Like the day with the night
We are two parallel lines
Running side by side

We are the hands of a clock
We are the roll and the rock
And that's all part of why
You and i synchronize

Da da da da ...
Da da da da ...
Da da da da ...

Like the moon with the tide
Like the day with the night
We are two parallel lines
Running side by side

We are the hands of a clock
We are the roll and the rock
And that's all part of why
You and i synchronize

Like the moon with the tide
Like the day with the night
We are two parallel lines
Running side by side

We are the hands of a clock
We are the roll and the rock
And that's all part of why
You and i synchronize

Da da da da ...
