"Touch My Heart"
©2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
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

lyrics
“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)

lyrics
“Baby, It's Not Right”

Words & Music By Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick 

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 

Chorus: 
No baby it's not right 
No baby it's not right 
No baby it's not right 
No baby it's not right 

Verse 2: 
I'm wild, I'm restless living on shaky ground 
Well since you left me, I've been hard to be around 

Lead In: 
I'm frozen in isolation 
Complete devastation 

(Repeat Chorus) 

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 

Lead In: 
I'm losing my concentration 
Frozen in isolation 

(Repeat Chorus) 

Ad-lib: 
Baby you can't hold me like a prisoner tonight 
I watched you walk away from me and fade out of sight 
It's not right, no it's not right

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 wanted to announce that we are now listed in the MTV artist directory. Which means that we are somewhere on the map. Most likely we're on a far, far, far away island somewhere, but at the very least it's an acknowledgment. 
  
We do however appreciate all the love and support we've been getting!

"Select Game"
©2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
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

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad lib: Select game, Select Game

(Repeat Chorus)
