I thought love was only true in fairy tales Meant for someone else but not for me Ah love was out to get me Tududumdudum That's the way it seemed Tududumdudum Disappointment haunted all my dreams And then I saw her face Now I'm a believer Not a trace Of doubt in my mind I'm in love I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried I thought love was more or less, a givin' thing Seems the more I gave, the less I got Whats the use in tryin' Tududumdudum All you get is pain Tududumdudum When I needed sunshine I got rain And then I saw her face Now I'm a believer Not a trace Of doubt in my mind I'm in love I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried Ah love was out to get me Now that's the way it seemed Disappointment haunted all my dreams And then I saw her face Now I'm a believer Not a trace Of doubt in my mind I'm in love I'm a believer I couldn't leave her if I tried Yes I saw her face Now I'm a believer Not a trace Of doubt in my mind

Got a postcard from paradise Delivered by mortal hands X marks the spot where you lay Now the sun burns down on the sand I sat and watched you sleeping I listened to you breathing I wondered if you were dreaming, if you were What were you dreaming? And I fell under your spell And I lay where I fell So wind down your window Think I think I'm gonna kiss you I dont know what else to do You send me Postcards from paradise Say I want you You send me Postcards from paradise Yeah, you do Oh my car broke down in the rain I just can't get started again I want you I want you to stay A postcard from paradise Delivered by mortal hands X marks the spot where you lay Now the sun burns down on the sand Well there goes love again 7 day wondering Out on the ledge again and you’re, threatening to jump again, who-oh Here comes temptation Dragging it out again I’m riding a bullet train To your central nervous station And I fell under your spell And I lay where I fell So wind down your window Think I'm gonna kiss you I don’t know what else to do You send me Postcards from paradise Say I want you You send me Postcards from paradise Yeah, you do Like a car broke down in the rain I just can't get started again without you I want you to stay Postcards from paradise Say I want you You send me Postcards from paradise Yeah, you do whoa-ohhh You send me Postcards from paradise Hey I want you to send me…

Well I started out down a dirty road Started out all alone And the sun went down as I crossed the hill And the town lit up the world got still I'm learning to fly but I ain't got wings Coming down is the hardest thing Well the good old days may not return And the rocks might melt and the sea may burn I'm learning to fly But I ain't got wings Coming down Is the hardest thing Well some say life will beat you down Break your heart steal your crown So I've started out for God knows where I guess I'll know when I get there I'm learning to fly around the clouds But what goes up Must come down I'm learning to fly But I ain't got wings Coming down is the hardest thing I'm learning to fly Around the clouds But what goes up Must come down

Maybe I don't really wanna know How your garden grows 'Cause I just wanna fly Lately, did you ever feel the pain In the morning rain As it soaks you to the bone? Maybe I just wanna fly Wanna live, I don't wanna die Maybe I just wanna breathe Maybe I just don't believe Maybe you're the same as me We see things they'll never see You and I are gonna live forever I said maybe I don't really wanna know How your garden grows 'Cause I just wanna fly Lately, did you ever feel the pain In the morning rain As it soaks you to the bone? Maybe I will never be All the things that I wanna be Now is not the time to cry Now's the time to find out why I think you're the same as me We see things they'll never see You and I are gonna live forever Maybe I don't really wanna know How your garden grows 'Cause I just wanna fly Lately, did you ever feel the pain In the morning rain As it soaks you to the bone? Maybe I just wanna fly Wanna live, I don't wanna die Maybe I just wanna breathe Maybe I just don't believe Maybe you're the same as me We see things they'll never see You and I are gonna live forever Gonna live forever Gonna live forever We're gonna live forever Gonna live forever Gonna live forever Gonna live forever

Crash and burn All the stars explode tonight How'd you get so desperate? How'd you stay alive? Help me, please Burn the sorrow from your eyes Oh, come on be alive again Don't lay down and die! Hey, hey You know what to do Oh baby drive away from Malibu Get well soon Please don't go any higher How are you so burnt when you're barely on fire? Cry to the angels I'm gonna rescue yoU I'm gonna set you free tonight, baby Pour over me Hey, hey We're all watching you Oh, baby, fly away to Malibu Cry to the angels And let them swallow you Go and part the sea, yeah in Malibu And the sun goes down I watch you slip away And the sun goes down I walk into the waves And the sun goes down I watch you slip away And I would And I knew Love would tear you apart Oh, and I knew The darkest secret of your heart Hey, hey I'm gonna follow you Oh baby fly away, yeah to Malibu Oceans of angels Oceans of stars Down by the sea is where you drown your scars I can't be near you The light just radiates I can't be near you The light just radiates

about

Here are my covers of songs I love. I hope you have as much fun listening as I did in recording, producing, and performing them.

Be sure to check out Volume I, also available here on Bandcamp, and on CD for free with a purchase of 'Go Deep' on Kool Kat Records (visit my website, www.richardturgeon.com for the link).

The first three songs are part of my "late '60s L.A. trilogy" to represent some classic pop tunes from that scene. ("New Shade" would fall into this category as well).

The others represent a mix of songs that have just stuck with me over the years, and that I felt like I could pull off and do some justice. The main criteria for how I curate is I have to love the song and the artist regardless of what phase I happen to be in now, or over the years.

Enjoy!
