Lyrics:

“Joy To The World Anyway”
©2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
Words & Music By Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
It's all over now. This Christmas you'll be far away
And I've, I've lost you somehow to the mistletoe and snowflakes

Lead In 1:
Oh and I still remember (Fa La La La) decorating through the years
Every time it turned December I was full of Christmas cheer
(Fa La La La Fa La La La La)

Chorus:
There's just no use pretending their will be
peace on earth for me this Christmas day
But joy to the world anyway

Verse 2:
You think I would know how to celebrate without you on my own
How to put up the lights, string the popcorn and sing some carols

Lead In 2:
Make hot apple cider, hang the stockings all in line
The spirit of the season, I've lost and just can't find

Chorus:
There's just no use pretending their will be
peace on earth for me this Christmas day
But joy to the world anyway

Bridge:
Glory, glory hallelujah and good will towards all good men (all good men)
I know you're never coming home again (never coming home again)

Lead In 3:
Oh and I still remember (Fa La La La) decorating through the years
Every time it turned December I was full of Christmas cheer
(Fa La La La Fa La La La La)

Chorus:
No, there's just no use pretending their will be
peace on earth for me this Christmas day
But joy to the world anyway

Ad-lib:
Joy to the world, joy to the world
Joy to the world, joy to the world anyway!
Fa La La La Fa La La La La

"Heart By Heart"
© 2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) & G. GARGANOPOULOS
All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by Carly Emerick,
Hoyt Emerick and Georgios Garganopoulos

Verse 1:
One by one we take the fall
A right of passage for us all
So cautiously we proceed

Verse 2:
Two by two we learn the ways
Uncertain of the words we say
To get what we think we need

Lead In:
And how many times can I hang around?
And how many times can you bring me down?
(And we can't seem to stop or start)

Chorus:
Heart by heart we fall apart (heart by heart, heart by heart)
Heart by heart we stop and start (heart by heart, heart by heart)
It's a flawed design, love on the line
We always think we got it this time
But we fail to play it smart, heart by heart

Verse 2:
Left and right we move ahead
The empty promises were said
But fade into a memory

Lead In 2:
And how many times can I even try?
And how many wall can we hide behind?
(And just when you think you're gonna make a brand new start)

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
And now I see ahead of me
The future ain't what it used to be
Cause I don't dream this dream alone
I'll follow it until I bring it home
(And I'll bring it home)

Ad-lib:
I don't know why I try and try (heart by heart, heart by heart)
With each hello comes a goodbye (heart by heart, heart by heart)

(Repeat Chorus)

Intro:
Serial Serial Killer
Serial Serial Killer

Verse 1:
I know what you are but I love you anyway
I know what you do to keep the demons at bay
I know where you go when you leave me late at night
But I don’t want to know the answer if it means that I am right

Lead In:
Deep in the heart of darkness
Where terror turns into a dark delight
How can I fight when my hands are tied?
A willing victim on a starless night

Chorus:
Am I in love with a serial killer?  (Am I in love with a serial killer?)
Am I in love with a serial killer?  (Am I in love, am I in love?)
He comes out at night every move so precise. He's a chiller! (Serial Killer)
I have to obey or I’ll end up his prey. He's a thriller! (Serial Killer)

Verse 2:
It’s buried in your eyes but no one else can see 
You don’t realize your secret’s safe with me
Laying in your arms and running out of time
I go searching for the victims of an uncommitted crime

Lead In 2:
Deep in the heart of darkness
Awake inside a reoccurring dream
I don’t know whether to stay or go
Where silence turns into a deadly scream

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
You spend a lot of time in the garage
I spend a lot of time with myself at odds
You won’t say where it is you’ve got to go
I wonder if I really want to know

(Repeat Chorus)

© 2012 G. GARGANOPOULOS & MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by Georgios Garganopoulos,
Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
Let me catch you up to speed
I’ve got everything thing you need
And we can really have it all

Let me take you around the world
Show you off like a geisha girl
Cameras flashing everywhere we go

Lead In:
We’re on the cover of Rolling Stone
And the critics just love us
We’re on the red-eye to Roam
Martini lunch in the south of France
Got a midnight performance for the president

Chorus:
We’re like a story in a magazine
And it’s all about love and it reads like a dream
We’re like a story in a magazine
And it’s got all the glamor of a Hollywood scene
We’re like a story in a magazine
We’re like a story in a magazine

Verse 2:
Welcome to the new elite
Catching glances on the street
Our billboard’s plastered on the city walls

A little scandal never fails
to help us boost our record sales
We do three encores at every show

Lead In 2:
Streaming live from cyberspace
Candy Apple Blue and Timeface
On the cover of Italian Vogue
And who are we wearing? We don’t even know!

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
Like story in a magazine
Like story in a magazine

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad-lib:
Like a story in a magazine (We’re like a story)

Words & Music By Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse One:
Oh every time I think of you and I
I sparkle like a diamond that shimmers in the light
You're so good to me how can this be real?
No I don't need to over think the feelings that I feel

Lead In:
(Feel) all the time when the thought of you's inhabiting my mind
(Fall) against my skin and when you're finished I want it again

Chorus:
You touch my heart (Oh how you touch it baby)
You touch my heart (Touch my heart)
You touch my heart (I wanna be you're only lady)
My heart, my heart (Ooo-ooo)
t-t-touch me touch my heart
t-t-touch me touch my heart

Verse Two:
The body is the garden of the soul
I'm pulled into a passion I'm under your control
A circumstance that no one can deny
We're written in the book of love, no we don't have to try

Lead In:
(Try) all the time, it seems like you can almost read my mind
(Kiss) me again, cause your love is a race I have to win

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
I'm hot, touch it, touch my heart (x4)
Touch my heart like a fire starts you burn inside of me
The flames of love are burning for us eternally
Touch my heart ignite the sparks come on turn me on
It's the rhythm of pure passion that we feast upon

(Repeat Chorus)

It Wasn't You





About 14 years ago, Hoyt & I wrote this little song titled 'It Wasn't You' one quiet Sunday evening back in 1998. Strangely enough, we never even officially demoed it until this week. I was going through some old song lyrics lately and opened up an old tablet and this song just kinda jumped right out at me. I thought that the lyrics were very profound. Honestly, I had to really dig deep to remember the vocal melody line but once I did it all just came rushing back to me. So jumped in front of the mic and just recorded it.

I remember very distinctly that just after we wrote this song we both had decided that 'It Wasn't You' would be perfect fit for Cyndi Lauper. (Or maybe even an E.G. Daily type vocalist.) We put our best Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg hats on and got busy trying to find all the right contact information for Cyndi's management team. But back then all we had was an old Tascam 4 Track recorder laying around and was afraid that the demo that we could produce wouldn't be 'pro' enough to submit to an artist or a label. So most regrettably, we put the song down and just continued writing more songs.

Well fourteen years later, I decided it was time to blow the dust off of it and give this song a life. With this simple straight forward piano & vocal arrangement the song now can finally be heard.
~ Thanks for tuning in, Carly

“It Wasn't You”
©2012, 1998 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
Words & Music By Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
It wasn't you that kept me lonely
It wasn't you for which I cried
And it wasn't on the mornings that I woke up sick
and my heart just could have died, oh no

Verse 2:
It wasn't you who kept me prisoner
I know now after all of these years
That it wasn't you that I was missing
But the way that I felt when you were here,
when you were here

Chorus:
It wasn't you that I came rushing home to
You that I thought of every minute of the day
It wasn't you but a dream I would have died for
and when I look back and ask myself the truth
It wasn't you

Verse 2:
It wasn't you who bought me flowers
It wasn't you who made me smile
And it wasn't you who got me through the tough times
and I realize it now, I realize now

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
I know that love's an illusion but I wish I was wrong
We convince ourselves to thinking that it's real all along
And now that my eyes are open I know you'll never see
that everything you thought I did for us I did for me

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 1: 
I'm lost, I'm lonely, have nowhere to go 
Oh since you left me I've been dying real slow 

Lead In: 
I'm counting my tomorrows 
I'm drowning in so much sorrow

No baby it's not right

I'm frozen in isolation 
Complete devastation

Bridge: 
I can't take no more 
How many empty night will I spend in misery 
You made threats before 
But I never thought that you'd really leave me

Frozen in isolation

I watched you walk away from me and fade out of sight

Howard Stump

It's always a special joy to be acknowledged for your work in this very competitive musical world that we find ourselves living in. As indie artists, not having the deep pockets of a major label behind us, we often find ourselves in a tight spot when it comes to promoting our music. It often feels like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. However, we've been staying steadfast and true to ourselves and to our art.

Just recently we've been featured on the music blog 'Soundtrack To My Day' a few times and it means so very much to us to have an outsider review our music and post about it.

We wanted to give a special shout out to Howard Stump for taking note of our last few singles and shining a little light on them! We couldn't be more grateful.  ~ Sincerely, Hoyt & Carly

We do however appreciate all the love and support we've been getting!

Words & Music By Carly Emerick, Hoyt Emerick & Dave Greening

Verse 1:
Are you gonna play me for a fool or are you gonna treat me like a queen?
Are you gonna break all the rules or are you gonna keep it all routine?

I've been on the outer skirts of town, baby there is nothing I ain't seen
Do you want to make me you touchdown
Or do you wanna jump right over me?

Chorus:
Select game, now tell me baby what's it gonna be
Select game, tell me baby how you're gonna play me

Verse 2:
Are you gonna use me for a night or is it a lifetime that you seek?
When you kiss and roll the dice are you sure you're on a winning streak?

I could be your trophy on the shelf and not admit to my defeat
Or you could be the one to back down, disengage your soldiers and retreat

Verse 1:
I know the world is a scary place
And everything is suspiciously erased
And baby I would like to say to you
Don't sit around being bored and blue
You're disenchanted with the world you were born into

Lead-in 1:
So get up baby, start to dance
give yourself another chance to start...

Chorus:
A new romance, a new romance
Come put your hand in my hand
And start a new romance, a new romance
Oh pretty baby take me by the hand
Let's a new romance (new romance, new romance)
Let's start a new romance (new romance, new romance)

Verse 2:
The law of nature says opposites will attract
So when I lean in to kiss you how will you react?
Don't tell me what it is you'd like to say
All the words get in the way
The rules have changed in the game of love we play

Lead-in 2:
So get up baby, start to dance
I think we've got a winning chance to start...

Chorus: (repeats)

A new romance, new romance is what I need
A new romance, new romance baby come with me

Verse One:
The only three words that you never said were the ones I ached to hear
But now I could care less about you dear
It's sad to think how much of my time was wasted on you
I find it downright laughable that I loved you

Lead In:
But you used me from the start
Playing games with my sacred heart
And I'm where I should be now
Well darling I got by somehow

Chorus:
You were a mistake (mistake) I had to learn from
A mistake (mistake) A mistake I had to make
I deserve someone better than you

Verse Two:
I always used to see your face in the crowd
and think of how you let me down
I let myself play victim, I was your clown
You always used to keep me waiting
You had me dangling by a string
All alone on Friday night waiting for the phone to ring

(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

End:
The only three words that you never said were the ones I ached to hear
But now I could care less about you dear

Filming Mistake



It was a hot and humid day and mother nature decided that it was a good time to rain. So Hoyt & I totally got caught in the rain carrying all of our recording gear. By the time we got there it was nearing dark. So unfortunately, none of the film footage we shot was really usable. Nor did it fit into our artistic direction for our upcoming music video. We wanted to share with you some still frame footage that ended up on the cutting room floor. Don't get me wrong, we had a blast and still managed to keep a positive outlook! All in all, it was a fun two hour hike and it actually felt so wonderful to be walking in the pouring rain! ~ Love & Laughs, Carly

lyrics
"I Don't Know How To Say Goodbye"
© 2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
Words & Music by Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
I don't know how I'm gonna live without you
You know how much I care about you
You fell apart like a broken toy
But the thought that you're gone forever leaves me destroyed

Lead In 1:
My hands shake, my heart breaks but still I try (still I try)
to let you go into the light
I feel weak and helpless, choked up inside (choked up inside)
I don't know how to say goodbye

Chorus:
I don't know how to say goodbye (don't know goodbye)
I don't know how to say goodbye
Don't know how to say goodbye

Verse 2:
I don't know why I feel so damn numb
when I could cry a river and then some
Our time together was a precious gift
But I never could imagine it would end like this

Lead In 2:
My hands shake, my heart breaks but still I try (still I try)
To let you go in the fading light
I feel weak and helpless, choked up inside (choked up inside)
I don't know how to say goodbye

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
I will miss you always in my dark despair
Yet I know you're no longer there
The hands of time are spinning to you everyday
And every moment gets taken away, gets taken away

(Repeat Chorus)

Can't Sleep From The Pain

Dave Greening w/ Candy Apple Blue - Can't Sleep From The Pain



"Can't Sleep From The Pain" is the result of the collaborated effort between England's own accomplished pianist Dave Greening and Candy Apple Blue. It was with much fondness that we found ourselves collaborating with Dave again. The song has gained us much respect and has received favorable reviews from our musical peers.

This piano/vocal presentation "Can't Sleep From The Rain" blends a unique fusion of styles. Threads of Celtic, New Age and dreamy pop music make this one a work that is "very relaxing and engaging to it's listener".

Candy Apple Blue - Mistake




Artist: Candy Apple Blue
Song: Mistake
Album: Night Tracks
Alexander Storm Mgmt.
Label: MRIX MUZIK Records

lyrics
“Mistake”
©2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
Words & Music By Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse One:
The only three words that you never said were the ones I ached to hear
But now I could care less about you dear
It's sad to think how much of my time was wasted on you
I find it downright laughable that I loved you

Lead In:
But you used me from the start
Playing games with my sacred heart
And I'm where I should be now
Well darling I got by somehow

Chorus:
You were a mistake (mistake) I had to learn from
A mistake (mistake) A mistake I had to make
I deserve someone better than you

Verse Two:
I always used to see your face in the crowd
and think of how you let me down
I let myself play victim, I was your clown
You always used to keep me waiting
You had me dangling by a string
All alone on Friday night waiting for the phone to ring

(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

End:
The only three words that you never said were the ones I ached to hear
But now I could care less about you dear
