jazzermonk Ryan P Scott IS a spirit animal. This is the type of song writing the world needs right now. No BS. Less is Bess. Reminds me of a Hemingway quote about writing. “Big words don’t mean big emotions.” If Tom Petty had a love child with all of the Meters, then they rolled one up and rolled tape, that’s what this sounds like. Thanks Ry Bread, for doing you in front of us.

Track Name: LOVE U LIKE THE SUN IN JUNE
If I could have my way
I’d take the path of least resistance
But now that times have changed
I’m counting on my own persistence

I’ve kept my conscience clear
My pride has never been conflicted
And then u came along
A joy I couldn’t have predicted

I’m gonna love u when the party’s over
I’ll love u like the sun in June
I’m gonna love u like I can no other
And u found me not a minute too soon

When I was all alone
I couldn’t close my eyes to listen
That fever’d always come
The questions of my own existence
U made it clear to me
Forgot about the cold statistic
U came and set me free
And still u ask if there’s a difference

I’m gonna love u when the party’s over
I’m gonna love u like the sun in June
I’m gonna love u like I can no other
And u found me not a minute too soon


I’m gonna love u when the party’s over
I’m gonna love u like the sun in June
I’m gonna love u like I can no other
We’ll be dancing all the way to the moon
Track Name: EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE FINE
Call it one of those days
Nothin goin my way
But a friend I did find
And we drank all the wine
So don’t u worry mama
Everything’s gonna be fine

Now tomorrow is here
And the path has been cleared
Got a smile on my face
Cause I’m back in the race
So don’t u worry mama
Everything’s gonna be great


I’m so happy to play
And I’m glad that u came
Intervention divine
Came along just in time
So don’t u worry mama
Everything’s gonna be fine

My luck will come back
Everything’s gonna be fine
My luck will come back
No mama don’t u worry
My luck will come back
Track Name: WHEELS
Get your key start it up
Put some light on the front
Grab your tip from the jar
Drop the brick on the floor

Because u never really know
Where the wheel’s gonna roll
But then u get just what u wish for
Or so I’ve been told
I’ve got a trick to keep them worries
from getting a hold u gotta
Let em go

Just can’t seem to relax
Smoke a joint
Take a bath
Sit and try it again
That don’t work
Call a friend

Because u never really know
Where the wheel’s gonna roll
But then u get just what u wish for
Or so I’ve been told
I’ve got a trick to keep them worries
from getting a hold u gotta
Let em go

Spent it all
Had a blast
Now u need u some cash
Run as fast as u can
Nothin on but the rent

But then u never really know
Where the wheel’s gonna roll
Because u get just what u wish for
Or so I’ve been told
I’ve got a trick to keep them worries
from getting a hold u gotta
Let em go

Because u never really know
Where the wheel’s gonna roll
But then u get just what u wish for
Or so I’ve been told
I’ve got a trick to keep them worries
from getting a hold u gotta
Let em go
Track Name: STOMP YOUR FEET AND CLAP YOUR HANDS
I see so many different faces
But all the buildings look the same
A strip mall full of fast-food places
Shark attacks and hurricanes

We got a plan for ya

I hate to see u watching baby
I hate to see u strain your eye
Can’t see what everybody’s doing
I still like to be surprised
I still like to be surprised

Big brother’s got your number baby
He’s watching your computer screen
He sees u when you’re grocery shopping
He dialing in your whole routine

We’ve got a plan for ya
Cause the shit’s gonna hit the fan

Not diet pills or TV dinners
Gonna work the book and read the land
Just blood and sweat we’re all beginners

So stomp your feet and clap your hands
Just stomp your feet and clap your hands


I know it’s been a hard one baby
We’re hanging on
We’re getting by
U have my heart
My money, take it

We still can make it if we try
We still can make it if we try

We still can make it if we try


Not diet pills or TV dinners
Gonna work the book and read the land
Just blood and sweat we’re all beginners
Just blood and sweat we’re all beginners

So stomp your feet and clap your hands
Just stomp your feet and clap your hands
So stomp your feet and clap your hands
Just stomp your feet and clap your hands
Track Name: REAL THING
Gotta get your feet wet
Gotta make a play
I met somebody last night
And I’m seeing her today

When it comes to the question of soul
Only takes me a moment to know

I found the real thing
I found the real thing

Speak up and tell me
What u really want to say
Some might think that it’s too fast
Can’t be any other way

When it comes to the question of soul
Only takes me a moment to know

I found the real thing
I found the real thing
I found the real thing
I found the real thing

U know love
Good love is so hard to find

Heard of family values
You’re the purest gold I’ve seen
When I wrap my arms around u
See how rich a man can be

When it comes to the question of soul
Only takes me a moment to know

I found the real thing
I found the real thing
I found the real thing
I found the real thing

U know love
Good love is so hard to find
Track Name: ROLL ON BY
I’m keeping it cool
Though u make me wanna cry sometimes
Hold my tongue, it ain’t no use
Just let it roll on by

People’s words can get u down
Even when u think they’ve crossed the line
We all disagree sometimes
Just let it roll on by

Just let it roll on by
Let it roll on by

Evil everywhere u turn
That devil’d trade u if you’d only sign
Keep your soul, we can survive
Just let him roll on by
Just let him roll on by

Devil keeps on trying
Devil keeps on trying
To get me down

I’m keeping it cool
Though u make me wanna cry sometimes
All objections overruled
Just let it roll on by

Just let it roll on by
Let it roll on by

Who
Who

Talkin too fast
Runnin right past
I wanna make the feeling last
Track Name: PARTY AT THE DANCEHALL
Got no money in the bank
Wife has up and moved away
All that weight u carry round
Take a break and lay it down

Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved
With a little bit of lovin
And a party at the dancehall

I asked a friend what I should do
She offered up her point of view
Some like the drink
Some like cocaine
While others twist the night away

Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved
With a little bit of lovin
And a party at the dancehall

It’s Friday night, I just got paid
Seven bills for seven days
Get myself a bite to eat
Get back up and move my feet

Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved
With a little bit of lovin
And a party at the dancehall

Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved
With a little bit of lovin
And a party at the dancehall

Ain’t no problem that can’t be solved
Track Name: NEW SUMMER DAYS
Clouds are an illusion
Here
Then they’re gone

The fever will break
You’ll get to the answer
Just go out and play

Clouds are an illusion
Here
Then they’re gone
Clouds are an illusion
Here
Then they’re gone

Step up to the plate
Just go out and get her
There’s no time to waste
The sooner the better

Sunshine
Good times
Clouds blow away
Sunshine
Blue skies
New summer days

New summer days

Rain
Go away
Rain
Go away
Come again another day

Sunshine
Good times
Clouds blow away
Sunshine
Blue skies
New summer days
New summer days

New summer days
New summer days
Track Name: SAY GOODBYE TO THE BLUES
Don’t have to understand to feel it
Don’t have to see it to believe it
Just listen, hear the angels sing it

I’m in love
Look what you’ve done to me

I’m too excited to conceal it
So many nights I tried to dream it
The peace we seek
We can achieve it
Just gotta open up and breathe it

I’m in love
Look what you’ve done to me

Wherever we land
Everything will be cool
We’ll figure it out
So much better with two

And I know we can, we can, we can
Said I know we can, we can, we can

Say goodbye to the blues
All I needed was u
Tell me how could I lose
My dream came true
I’m gonna love u


Wherever we land
Everything will be cool
We’ll figure it out

Tell me how could I lose
My dream came true
I’m gonna love u
My dream came true

Say goodbye to the blues
All I needed was u

My dream came true

My dream came true

Say goodbye to the blues

I’m in love
Look what you’ve done to me
