California based independent recording artists Linda Arceo & Lisa Long are currently promoting a Limited Edition 4 Song EP that previews songs from thier upcoming self produced/recorded release that will include 12 acousitic guitar and piano songs.

Previosly they have released their a 14 song 2 disc CD entitled “It’ll Be Fine”.

Lyrics

Crazy

Written By: Lisa Long

Grumpy Got Out Of Bed Today
The Television Kept You Up All Night
And Then The Phone Remote Had Lost It’s Choke
Waking Up To Me Has Lost It’s Light

But I Don’t Mind, That We Waste Our Time
Cause I Find It All, So Everlasting Comical
That You’re Mine

I Like My Coffee And My Conversations
You Like Your Sign Language, Flares And Morgan’s Rum
I Look For Romance, In Every Morning Kitchen Dance
And You Can’t Understand Why Everything Has More Meaning

But I Don’t Mind, That We Waste Our Time
Cause I Find It All, So Everlasting Comical That You’re Mine
That you’re mine, and we’re doing fine
Just Casualties of Kind

You Can’t Wait For The Snow
I Can’t Wait For You To Know

Your Love Is All I Need

Written By: Linda Arceo & Lisa Long

Do You Know This Love Is Real
Does My Touch Express How I Feel
When I’m Alone With You Or Apart
Please Tell Me You Know What’s In My Heart

Love Notes On The Mirror, Calls On The Phone
Flowers In Vases When I Come Home
The Smile On Your Face When I Come Through The Door
Hugs And Kisses Leave Me Wanting More
Of Your Love, Your Sweet Love, You’re Love
Cause Your Love Is All I Need

Do You Know you’re The Love Of My Life
You’re The Proof That Dreams Come True
I Know That With Love There Is No Guarantee
Time Will Tell If Were Meant To Be

Baby Can’t You Feel It
Walking Thru The Door
Baby Can’t Believe It
Keep Me Coming Back For More

So Good

Written By: LISA LONG

Thought I'd Play Sick, And Call In Today
I Wanna To Keep You Close To Me, And Listen To The Rain
You're So Warm, We Can Sleep In Late
If We Keep The Dogs Quiet, We Can Sleep In Till Eight

I Don't Mind If you’re Feather Pillow Tickles My Nose
Just As Long As I Can Keep The Cold From My Toes
So Good.

You Know I Love My Caffeine It's A Hard Habit To Break
Even Though You Forget The Sugar Baby I Love The Coffee You Make
We Can Hide Away On This Island We Create
Just You And Me Baby, Playing Survivor All Day

I'll Rediscover My Lover In The Afternoon
And As The Sun Goes Down We Can Howl At The Moon

I Wanna Make Love With You All Day
Let’s Stay In Our Island Hideaway

Lover's Dance

Written By: Linda Arceo

LOVERS DANCE
(BAILE DE AMOR)

She appears
In your dreams
Rising from her Venus shell
Full of life and love
Ready to give
Herself to you

Exotic woman
Of slumber
With honey colored skin
Black onyx hair and eyes
The scent of lavender
Surrounds her

(Chorus) She is walking towards you
Her beckoning eyes hold you
You have no choice or chance
But to dance her lovers dance
Baile de Amor

Familiar dance
Of love begins
And you are captured by this vision
Don’t let this dream end
Just lose yourself
In her arms

Escape
From your prisoners cell
No one to see
And no one to tell
Of this angel of the night
Dancing with you into daylight

Do You

Written By: LINDA ARCEO & LISA LONG

DO YOU WANNA TAKE ME HOME OR
DO YOU WANNA BE ALONE
DO YOU WANNA SEE WHAT HAPPENS
DO YOU?
DO YOU WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE AND (DO YOU WANT TO)
DO YOU WANNA FIND ROMANCE (FIND ROMANCE)
DO YOU (WANNA SEE WHAT HAPPENS)
DO YOU?

CAN I PLEASE TRY TO BE THE ONE TO HOLD YOU TONIGHT
I WAKE, I WOULD DIE, TO BE THE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IS THERE A CHANCE FOR ME?
I PRAY IT’S TRUE
PLEASE SAY YOU DO

DO YOU WANNA BE WITH ME OR
DO YOU WANNA WAIT AND SEE
DO YOU WANNA SEE WHAT HAPPENS
DO YOU?
DO YOU WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE AND (DO YOU WANT TO)
DO YOU WANNA FIND ROMANCE (FIND ROMANCE)
DO YOU (WANNA SEE WHAT HAPPENS)
DO YOU?

CONSTANT SEARCHING FOR A LOVE THAT IS ALL OWN
I’M SO TIRED, SO TIRED OF BEING ALONE
