Biography

You only have to hear them once to become fans of Tripping Lily. This young quartet might be described as a string band with pop music sensibilities, or perhaps a cutting edge vocal quartet with acoustic instruments. Last year was a big year for Tripping Lily, highlighted by winning 2 Independent Music Awards for Best Folk Record and Best Acoustic Song, opening for Jazz artist Chris Botti, and being a featured guest for the Cape Cod Symphony’s Holiday Pops Spectacular. 2012 will see the release of a highly anticipated album, another partnership with The Cape Cod Symphony Summer Pops concerts, and several tours throughout the East Coast. Featured on Showtime’s New Hit Series “The Big C”, hitting number one for several weeks on Boston's Folk Station WUMB it is no wonder why the Boston Globe called the band"....a genre unto itself."

Monica Rizzio (fiddle/ukulele/piano/vocals), hailing from Texas and Nashville has brought her Americana upbringing to native New Englanders Alex Becrelis (mandolin/guitar/washboard/ vocals) and Demetrius Becrelis (guitar/ukulele/mandolin/vocals) and has formed a band that appeals to all genres, North and South. Stringed Bassist journeyman, Laird Boles anchors this enigmatic quartet. Tripping Lily blends a unique sound of Folk/Americana and Pop with deeply personal songwriting and vocal harmonies that are winning fans over by the thousands.

Lyrics

Little Black Dress

Written By: Monica Rizzio

Little Black Dress
Copyright 2008

Oh that long black pretty little dress
suiting me just fine
and the pretty little boy in the corner
singing me a lullaby
yeah he was singing me a lullaby

Oh my momma and my poppa they kicked me out
when I was just fourteen
and they told me to go to the pretty little house
on the corner of railroad street
on the corner of railroad street

Oh the tiny little house was dark and dim
floors were cracked and faded
and I heard my momma singing my song
don't be broke and jaded
don't be broke and jaded

Oh momma please don't go
and leave me here all alone
For I know no one what shall I do
sit and sing your song
gonna sit and sing your song

No I never meant to leave you all alone
Never meant to leave at all
but I left you my little black dress
remember me in the fall
remember me in the fall

Vs 1
Just because I'm driving away
Doesn't mean that I am gone to stay
I feel guilty, your not with me

Vs 2
The sight of you in my rear view mirror
Brings me back to all last year
You were with me, I feel guilty
Your not with me, I feel guilty

Chorus
Sometimes the harder you fall
It makes you so damn numb to it all
It can make me, it can break me

Vs 3
Just because I drove away
Doesn't mean that I am gonna stay
I feel guilty, your not with me
I feel guilty, your not with me

Chorus
Sometimes the harder you fall
It makes you so damn numb to it all
It can make me, it can break me

I'm Sorry

Vs 1
I've been trying to tell you all this for awhile
I didn't think that you would want
to hear about all of my past

Chorus
But don't worry about
I'm just thinking out loud to myself
and you happen to be
in the same room as I
when I look back at my life
and how I'm not where I want to be
you happen to be there with me
I'm Sorry

Vs 2
It slipped out of my mouth
and travelled out so far out somehow
I didn't mean to talk about
I'd rather be in some other town

Chorus
But don't worry about
I'm just thinking out loud to myself
and you happen to be
in the same room as I
when I look back at my life
and how I'm not where I want to be
you happen to be there with me
I'm Sorry
So Sorry

Bridge
There's such a fine line between what's yours and mine
I don't know
your stepping out of bounds and way too close
a fine line between what's yours and mine
I don't know
your stepping out of bounds and way too close
your stepping out of bounds and way too close
your stepping out of bounds and way too close
your stepping out of bounds and way too close
I'm Sorry

Chorus
Don't worry about
I'm just thinking out loud to myself
and you happen to be
in the same room as I
when I look back at my life
and how I'm not where I want to be
and you happen to be there with me
I'm Sorry
So Sorry
