"I mastered this release without the heavy use of compression and limiters in hopes to preserve it's musical dynamics. Ultimately, giving the track more head room to properly breath. I personally feel that the 'loudness war' is over. Musical dynamics wins every time in my book." ~ Carly Emerick

lyrics

“I Can't Wait for Christmas”
© 2015 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by
Carly Emerick and Hoyt Emerick

Verse One:
It's already December so season's greetings
I'm in my vintage ugly Christmas sweater
to hide all the cookies I've been eating

Lead In 1:
I can't wait to see the snow on the ground
And I can't wait for you to see all the presents I found

Chorus:
No I can't wait for Christmas
I can't wait to feel the magic like it used to be,
Unwrapping presents makes a kid out of me

No I can't wait for Christmas
Hanging up the bulbs on the Christmas tree
We'll have so much fun!
I can't wait for Christmas

Verse Two:
With each day it's getting closer, drinking eggnog at night
Let's drive around the neighborhood and see the festive Christmas lights

Lead In 2:
Oooooh I can't wait to see the snow on the ground (Fa-la-la-la-la)
Making snow angels in my winter coat, yeah it's comin' around

Chorus:
No I can't wait for Christmas
I can't wait to feel the magic like it used to be,
Unwrapping presents makes a kid out of me

No I can't wait for Christmas
Watching the Grinch on TV
We'll have so much fun!
I can't wait for Christmas

Bridge:
I can't wait to sing along to the songs we love to hear
like Silent Night, Jingle Bells, and Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer

Chorus:
No I can't wait for Christmas
I can't wait to feel the magic like it used to be,
Unwrapping presents makes a kid out of me

No I can't wait for Christmas
Watching Christmas Story and baking cookies
We'll have so much fun!
I can't wait for Christmas

Ad-Lib:
Wow-oh-oh -oh- Ho-ho-ho-ho

Ooowl, we're all together now, we're hanging out and doin' it with style
It's what we came to do, we're party people through and through

Let's move our feet 'till the morning light
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance

Hey, the songs you want to play are getting heard when you're tippin' the dj
So get into the groove, get on down cuz your body's made to move

Rollin' out to after hours, drinking doubles with my best friend
The music's hoppin', no we ain't stoppin'
I don't want this party to end!

Alice's Last Halloween is based off of a screenplay that we started writing 10 years back but never finished. So we found it only fitting, being songwriters at heart, that we try to tell you the story in a 4 and a half minute pop song!

It's a story song about an urban legend, that we heard as kids, that Halloween candy can sometimes be tampered with in order to cause harm to those who eat it. All of this is centered around a character we created named Alice Crowley.

Alice's Last Halloween was composed in the key signature of Ebm Minor.

lyrics
“Alice's Last Halloween”
© 2015 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP)
All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by
Carly Emerick and Hoyt Emerick

Verse One:
She looked like an older version of Bette Davis or Liz Taylor
Yeah she could have been a movie star
but in this town no one gets too far
It was 1982, I was probably seven then,
We lived in a little town called Monongahela

Chorus:
It was Alice's last Halloween
I saw the knife and I heard her scream
The neighborhood was an angry mob
A museum of the macabre

Alice's last Halloween
A wicked witch with an evil scheme
Now children of the Mon Valley
are haunted by the ghost of Mrs. Crowley

Verse Two:
A cold night in late October carving pumpkins on All Hallows Eve
I was dressed as Bozo the Clown
Trick or tricking as the sun went down
She was passing out home baked goods, to the children of the neighborhood
It was a night that I'll always remember

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse Three:
Found a needle in my candy apple, broken glass in my Hershey's bar
My sister Helen found a razor blade in the cookies that Alice made
The word spread like wild fire, urban legend turned living hell
What exactly happened that night, Alice never lived to tell

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad-Lib:
Alice's last Halloween, ghosts and goblins kill the queen.
Alice's last Halloween, Alice's last Halloween

Lyrics:

“No One Else Could Ever Love You (More Than I Do)” 
©2015, 1998 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) 
All Rights Reserved. 
Words & Music by Carly Emerick 

Verse One: 
Well I've been through too many nights with you 
to give you up without a fight and
I don't know if I could learn to let you go
But I don't wanna try tonight

Lead In 1:
You're always turning away
You don't hear me say, "I wanna be around forever"
Maybe this time you will see that you and I should be together

Chorus: 
No one else could ever love you more than I do, no way
No one else could ever give you the love you need, oh and
Day or night when you're out of sight, you're never out of mind, 
oh and
No one else could ever love you more than I do, not like me

Verse Two: 
They say people change, just go their separate ways
But I don't believe they really do, and
Time moves on, yet I know that when you're gone
I'll still be pining over you

Lead In 2: 
You've got the world in your eyes
And you say goodbye before they realize you're leavin'
Maybe this time you won't go 'cause you already know the reason

(Repeat Chorus)
