Somewhere between Syd Barretty/Brian Wilsony/ Beatles and Radiohead, but with an eye towards pop sensibility.....big sound, nice vocals, big hooks!!

Biography

I am a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist from the Lennon, McCartney, Brian Wilson school of songwriting (i.e. powerpop). My music is clever, well written, and contains hooks enough to attract the attention necessary for me to compete in the music field as a songwriter to be reckoned with. I was a Suggested Artist in VH1's 2004 Song of the Year Contest. I was an Honorable Mention in the 2003 John Lennon Songwriting for my submission of the song "17 Hours…". In September 2006, I was invited to participate in the Williamsburg Live Songwriting Contest in New York . Most recently I have signed on to contribute a track to an upcoming Jellyfish tribute album set for a June 2007 release, and had 2 of my compositions (“17 Hours…” and “Talk Girl Talk“) appear in the finals of the Song Door International Songwriting Contest.

Lyrics

That Time on The Beach

Written By: wayne cabral

6 and 6 and 6 with a pocketful of tricks in a language i would call obscene,as a matter of fact if it wasn't for that pact,my dirt would all be clean

that time on the beach,margaritas flavored peach,bikini bottom finger pie
the sun and the sand if you're lonely take my hand,and maybe i could touch your thigh......

6 and 6 and 7 take a right and get to heaven,take a left and paddle up the stream,
as a matter of course if it wasn't for that horse ,my nose would still be clean...
that time on the beach margaritas flavored peach,bikini bottom finger pie,the sun and the sand if you're lonely take my hand,and maybe i could touch your thigh.....

NO WAY........NO WAY........NO WAY.......NO WAY........

17 HOURS
LYRICS MUSIC INSTRUMENTATION AND VOCALS BY
WAYNE J. CABRAL

17 HOURS TO PAY THE RENT AND THE CHECK WON'T CLEAR CUZ THE MONEY'S SPENT,AND THE MILK'S GONE SOUR AND THE CUT WON'T HEAL AND THE TV'S ON THE BLINK....

THE WHEELS HAVE FALLEN OFF YOUR CAR AND ODDS ARE YOU WON'T GET VERY FAR,SO YOU SKIP ON DOWN TO THE LOCAL BAR AND CONJURE UP A DRINK...

IT WAS THEN I BROKE THE GOLDEN RULE,LIT THE FIRE THAT TORCHED THE SCHOOL,THAT CLOUDS THE FACTS AND MAKES ME WONDER WHY I CARED AT ALL......

17 HOURS TO SAVE THE EARTH FROM ITS PLANETARY INTERBIRTH WITH A COMET THATS THE SIZE OF SPAIN AND THE SHAPE OF A CHRISTMAS TREE...

WHAT THE HELL WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO SO I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT TIME AT SCHOOL,WAS IT CALCULUS THAT WOULD SAVE MY LIFE OR TRIGONOMETRY...

IT WAS THEN I BROKE THE GOLDEN RULE,LIT THE FIRE THAT TORCHED THE SCHOOL,THAT CLOUDS THE FACTS AND MAKES ME WONDER WHY I CARED AT ALL......

mmmmmm .........mmmmmmmm

17 HOURS TO TURN BACK TIME AND RETURN THE CREEPY PANTOMIME ,TO HIS WINDY BOX ON THE SANDY STAGE WHERE THE VAUDEVILLE ACTORS PLAY....

HOW THE HELL DO I GET OUT OF TOWN ,IN THIS TWILIGHT ZONE WITH THIS CREEPY CLOWN,AS HE TURNS THE THEATRE UPSIDE DOWN AS THE CONGREGATION PRAYS.....

IT WAS THEN I BROKE THE GOLDEN RULE,LIT THE FIRE THAT TORCHED THE SCHOOL,THAT CLOUDS THE FACTS AND MAKES ME WONDER WHY I CARED AT ALL......

17 HOURS TO WRITE THIS SONG ,I STILL CAN'T DECIDE IF ITS RIGHT OR WRONG ,TO REPEAT THE BRIDGE OR THE MIDDLE EIGHT OR TO END IT WITH A FADE...

I PAINT SO MANY MELODIES ,THAT THE COLORS OFTEN COME IN THREES,AND THEY MULTIPLY TO INFINITY

LA LA LA LA LA .................

Fractured Fairy Tales

FRACTURED FAIRY TALES
LYRICS AND MUSIC BY WAYNE J. CABRAL

THE KING OF HEARTS THE QUEEN OF SPADES,THE PAWNS THE BISHOPS AND OLD MAIDS.
THE GREAT UNWASHED THE CHOSEN FEW,THE MIGHTY AND THE MIDGETS TOO.....

PERHAPS THE WORLD COULD BE YOUR STAGE,OR THRASH ABOUT INSIDE A CAGE,
THE FRACTURED FAIRY TALES THAT TEAR US ALL APART,
WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BREAK YOUR HEART....

THE WORK OF ART THE RAGING FLOOD,THE STILL LIFE PICTURE DRAWN IN BLOOD,
A SPELL GETS CAST AND THEN REMOVED,A SONG GETS WRITTEN AND APPROVED....

THE DARKEST NIGHT THE BRIGHTEST DAY, THE WARMEST WISHES FADE AWAY..
THE FRACTURED FAIRY TALES THAT TEAR US ALL APART,
WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BREAK HEART....

LOVE YOU....LOVE YOU....THEY ALL LOVE YOU
LOVE YOU ...LOVE YOU....THEY ALL LOVE YOU

THE VAMPIRE RISES FROM THE GRAVE ,TO FEAST UPON THE SOULS HE SAVES,,,
AWASH IN PITY AND ABUSE,THE LIQUID LUNCH BECOMES AMUSED...

THE SUNLIGHT COOKS HIS FRAGILE SKIN,THE INNER CHILDS REPRISE WITHIN,
THE FRACTURED FAIRY TALES THAT TEAR US ALL APART,
WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BREAK YOUR HEART...

LOVE YOU....LOVE YOU....THEY ALL LOVE YOU...
LOVE YOU....LOVE YOU....THEY ALL LOVE YOU...

THE KING OF HEARTS THE QUEEN OF SPADES,THE PAWNS THE BISHOPS AND OLD MAIDS...
THE GREAT UNWASHED THE CHOSEN FEW,
THE MIGHTY AND THE MIDGETS TOO...
THEY ALL LOVE YOU.....THEY ALL LOVE YOU.....THEY ALL LOVE YOU.......

Black

Black

Wayne Cabral

Black Black take me back to when i was a child,white white it's allright
and i see right through your smile ,but black eyes don't cry and silent tongues don't talk.....

Blue Blue what can i do when i see you slip away,gray gray in between
the darkness and the day,but black eyes don't cry and silent tongues don't talk.....

Red Red the anger bled the river flows away,pink pink you make me think i won't do what i say,but black eyes don't cry and silent tongues don't talk.....

Green Green you're so obscene i worship your emerald skin,and gold gold if truth be told i'd bleed your yellow din,but black eyes don't cry and silent tongues don't talk.....

Vagabond

Vagabond
music and lyrics
Wayne J. Cabral

Tea reads a cup,like sand through the hourglass,
dripping the moments away
Dark precious locks once tinted the photograph,
gray upon gray upon gray....

Where have you gone,your memory lives on.
does anyone know your alive?
Where have you been my vagabond friend.
You can't really show up until you arrive.

Speaking in tongues and drowning in revelry,
blue blooded king for a day
Red carpet ride begins and subsides
stay won't you stay won't you stay...

Where have you gone,your memory lives on.
does anyone know your alive?
Where have you been my vagabond friend.
You can't really show up until you arrive.
