about

GrooveLily Seattle, Washington

Bicoastal trio GrooveLily inhabits that contemporary space where creative musicians ignore the boundaries laid down by words like rock, folk, jazz and pop. The success of their first concert-musical, the critically-acclaimed holiday show STRIKING 12, has led them farther into the world of theatre, where they have carved out a unique niche as a rock band writing and performing shows. ... more

Track Name: Up, Up, and Away
got the wings
got the feathers
got the wood and wax to hold 'em together
Daddy said
"don't go higher
'cause you're such an inexperienced flyer"
that’s when Icarus told his father
"it's such a beautiful day…

up, up and away
I've always been aching to fly
up, up and away
I've got clearance for takeoff and I'm kissing the earth goodbye"

got balloons
got a lawn chair
got a CB and a BB gun up there
holding tight
to his pipe dream
with the air around him colder than ice cream
Larry looks at the clouds below him
the lining’s silver, not grey…

up, up and away
he's always been aching to fly
up, up and away
he's got clearance for takeoff and he's kissing the earth goodbye…

but most of us aren't so brave
we gaze at the sky
fearful of falling
and all that we can do is stand here and wave

Interstate 37
she sees a dozen souls ascending to heaven
through the sun roof
Georgeanne stands up
she thinks she's seeing Jesus raising his hands up
and as she leaps into freeway traffic
somebody hears the girl say

"up, up and away
I've always been aching to fly
up, up and away
I've got clearance for takeoff and I'm kissing the earth goodbye..."
Track Name: Milburn & Vigoda - That Technique
THAT TECHNIQUE
Copyright © 2010 by Milburn & Vigoda

she got the earring, nose ring, lip ring, nipple ring
jump up on the bar and belly dancing in a g-string
body shots, burning hot, bringin' on the the bada-bing
ain't nobody stopping her from doing her thing

but that technique
that technique
that technique
might work for her
yeah well that technique
pussy cat technique
that technique
don't work for me.

she got the strait-laced, two-faced, smilin' like a toothpaste
friendly in the office and a bitch in every other place
pretty blouse, pretty house, pretty car, fast pace,
cuttin' everybody off to win the rat race

but that technique
that technique
that technique
might work for her
yeah well that technique
aristocrat technique
that technique
don't work for me.

I'm just trying to be real
trying to figure this all out
I can understand the appeal, but I feel
that technique, that technique is one I'll do without

she got the black lips, black hair, bleak lookin' blank stare
all kabuki makeup and her eyebrow fulla hardware
thrift store hard core rude mood don't care
goth and punk and emo funkin' scary nightmare

but that technique
that technique
that technique
might work for her
yeah well that technique
vampire bat technique
that technique
don't work for me.
Track Name: Milburn & Vigoda - Crazy For You
dead broke, broke down, when they let me out
heart broke in the valley, the valley of the shadow of doubt
I had to break free from where I'd been
never wanna wind up there again
then I saw you, had a breakthrough
and I had to break in

crazy
I'm prob'ly looking pretty crazy on the outside
crazy
you're prob'ly wonderin' if I'm crazy on the inside
I'm not one of those guys
leading you on with their little white lies
I hope one day you're gonna realize
I know it sounds crazy but,
babe I'm only crazy for you.

wrung out, outcast, run down by the law
outrun, run o' bad luck, I know it's just the luck of the draw
I drew a long stretch and when it was done
I knew I had a longing for nowhere to run
then you showed up, and I slowed down
I knew you were the one

crazy
I'm prob'ly looking pretty crazy on the outside
crazy
you're prob'ly wonderin' if I'm crazy on the inside
I'm not one of those guys
leading you on with their little white lies
I hope one day you're gonna realize
I know it sounds crazy but,
babe I'm only crazy for you.
Track Name: Milburn & Vigoda - I Want You For Real
You got me distracted
you got me uptight
you got me obsessing 'bout you
every day and night

you brought your nintendo
I brought my guitar
I'm sitting right beside you
I'm so close and yet so far

maybe it's no big deal
but this is how I feel
in every game we play
well I own you babe
(but) now I'm afraid
that I want you for real

you don't check your radar
you don't look around
you go in with gunfire blazing
trying to mow me down

but I stay in the shadows
I don't go near the lights
I'm tracking every move you make,
I've got you in my sights

you say it ain't no big deal
but this is how I feel
in every game we play,
well I own you babe,
but now I'm afraid
that I want you for real,
I want you for real
I want you for real.......

You got me distracted
you got me uptight
you got me obsessing 'bout you
every day and night

put down your controller
turn off your t.v.
I'm trying to tell you something, so
shut up and look at me
Track Name: Milburn & Vigoda - Standing In The Shadow
I got lost
I got off track
Well I took the long way 'round, but now I'm back
I was wrong,
now I got it right,
and I got a fist full of flowers for you tonight

but I'm standing in the shadow of the man who is first in line
yes I'm standing in the shadow of the man who is first in line

I was down
on my luck
I was living in the back of my pickup truck
I got high
I got low
but I got back up on my feet and I'm good to go

but I'm standing in the shadow of the man who is first in line
and I'm looking over his shoulder and I see that you're still looking fine
(yes you are)
and I'm tryin' to cut in, but baby I know the score
he's got everything I got and just a little bit more
and I'm standing in the shadow of the man who is first in line

well I guess I had my chance and blew it good
shoulda asked you out to dance back when I could
now I'm sitting at the bar wishing you were mine,
and I watch you dance around the floor with the man who was first in line.

Well it's all right
I shoulda known
I guess I'll have me a diet cola and go on home
before I go
I just wanna say
you look as good as you did the day I let you slip away

and I'm
standing in the shadow of the man who is first in line
yes I know the way the game is played and I can see the exit sign
'cause the very best I got, it might as well be my worst
I'm the second man in line and your new man is the first
oh, I'm standing in the shadow of the man who is first in line.
Track Name: Milburn & Vigoda - Leap (rough demo)
how could I think of crossing the chasm
the vast expanse between me and you
I had my fears like everyone has 'em
as years went by the larger they grew
tied me up and tied me down
to my old familiar ground
still and static, safe and sound - but I found

If you leap - heaven knows just where you're going to land
If you leap - chances are it won't turn out like you planned
But if you don't if you won't you might always wish you had
and when you walked by, well I can't deny that I found that I just had to leap for you

I don't repair what hasn't been broken
I never question my status quo (oh no)
I used to leave my feelings unspoken
I'd just relax and go with the flow

but there you were, the turning tide
to rock my boat and toss aside
all my charts, all my plans
and all my pride

If you leap - heaven knows just where you're going to land
Dive in deep - you could drown or you could wash up on the sand
But if you don't if you won't you might always wish you had
and when you walked by, well I can't deny that I found that I just had to leap for you

I think it's safer not to climb too high
I get all dizzy looking down
I will admit that I'm afraid to fly
'cause I got no wings
and I've never tried
and these butterflies
flit around inside
but when I saw you
then the great divide
didn't seem so wide
and my feet just left the ground

I'll always be a little bit cautious
I'll always stop to look left & right
too much excitement makes me feel nauseous
but when you're with me then I just might
be okay,
now I see
how you make me
feel so free
even with
no guarantee
of what will be

If you leap - heaven knows just where you're going to land
If you leap - chances are it won't turn out like you planned
But if you don't if you won't you might always wish you had
but something about you made me leap
look in your eyes could make me weep
something about you made me leap
for you
Track Name: Milburn & Vigoda - Overcoming
