about

"There’s music—and then there’s music that gets under your skin, delivering story in a fresh, engaging way. Coco O’connor’s music is the “under the skin” kind. It’s bold. It’s vulnerable; masterfully crafted with grit and maturity. From note one, you are drawn into her unapologetic strength and self-effacing confessions. She is compelling, both as a performer and a commentator, and her work is the rare kind that that takes you somewhere, reminds you of who you are, and releases you feeling “known.” - Margaret Becker, Producer

Track Name: Empty In California
Whatever I do I won’t leave my shoes
Empty in California
left the key in the door, got my foot to the floor
Empty in California
Made my bed but wont lay my head
Empty in California
Whatever I do I won’t leave my shoes
Empty in California




San Andreas well i know it’s not your fault
You like stealing dreams
And it’s easy to get caught
living on the wrong side of this great divide
it sure gets lonely in a superficial life

Whatever I do I won’t leave my shoes
Empty in California
Put a lock on your door, got my foot to the floor
Wont be Empty in California
Made my bed but wont lay my head
Empty in California
Whatever I do I won’t leave my shoes
Empty in California

those lost angels never poured their mercy down
More souls dying than living in this town
i felt the ground shake but nothing ever moved
Heard every boring LA story and none of them were true



I can see fire from Hollywood and Vine

Man my feet are tired and wasted so much time yeah Ive wasted so much time


Whatever I do I won’t leave my shoes
Empty in California
Put a lock on your door, got my foot to the floor
Wont be Empty in California
Made my bed but wont lay my head
Empty in California
Whatever I do I won’t leave my shoes
Empty in California
Track Name: All The Right Things
You got a job
You got more money than God
You got a wife
You got a two faced life
You got a plan

but you’re no simple man


You do all the right things

Say all the nice things

Pray all the fine things into your hungry little hands


You’re living high
You almost touch the sky
Least in your mind
you are a legend to find
The chosen few

Hell-bent on serving you …cause


You do all the right things

Say all the nice things

Pray all the fine things into your hungry little hands

You do right , for all the wrong reasons

You do wrong for all the right things

Sell your soul for silver and gold

You do wrong for all the right things

You do wrong for all the right things


You take up your cross
If you can hear the applause
but its an act
Like an apostle in drag
You got the code

To hack the Holy Ghost for…..

you do all the right things
say all the nice things

pray all the fine things into your hungry little hands


You do right , for all the wrong reasons

You do wrong for all the right things

Sell your soul for silver and gold

You do wrong for all the right things

You do wrong for all the right things





Only 2x at end
Track Name: Gone
I could not sell you

On being the suffering kind

You’re too far accustomed

To fine food and wine


You like the parties

And that whole crazy scene

But I’d sooner go bankrupt

Than chasing your dream

(Chorus)

What do you do when you get lonely

That’s hard to answer cause you’re never alone

And if I let myself slip away

You wouldn’t even notice i was gone

you wouldn't even notice I was gone


You got your whole world

in the palm of your hand

cold glass and steel

your lover and friend


I’m waiting in real time

for you to look up

but real life is boring

and I (ain’t/I’m )not enough

(Bridge)

A million miles sits between us at the table

You don’t even try, or maybe you’re not able

to try n’ even feel

for someone who is real
Track Name: Angels Come
She keeps him on a tight leash

She plays him like a backbeat

Cause she’s got 50 years of heartache

On her side


she dont remember when it happened

It just happened

She let that fear of losing him

eat her up inside


Angels come, Angels come

she cant let go she can't hold on

She wonders where the time has gone

Angels come Angels come.


she don't talk much to her children

there’s a thousand miles between them

Cause she’s got 50 years of heartache

On her side


She dont remember when it happened

It just happened
they left home took her heart and took the light

(Chorus)



she’d give it all for a little hope

Something to tame the ghosts

that whisper all night long in her mind


She dont remember when it happened

It just happened

The day the voices drowned out her real life
Track Name: I'll Say It Again
I guess I don't tell you enough


Frankly I’m not good with words

Too many times they fall by the wayside

And too many times they hurt

I hope you see the light in my eyes

When you catch me looking at you

And all the wonders that you are

wash over me like new


(Chorus)


Win or lose

I’ll be here for you

Listen cause I’ll say it again

Listen cause I’ll say it again


If I had chose

I’d still chose you

Listen cause I’ll say it again

Listen cause I’ll say it again




I should let you know more often

How your amazing in so many ways

I know I’m a difficult case

After all these years. I’m surprised you’d stay


equal parts strength and kindness

stir in your crazy grin

And it all becomes your beautiful soul

and baby I’m all in


who can understand these things

the ways of love and life

all I know is when Im with you

my whole world comes alive
(Chorus)
Track Name: Heart Leaves Behind
Change the color of your hair
Put on your new black dress
Take a hard look in the mirror
Lie to yourself
And you’ll pour another

Start calling up old numbers
Of one night stands
Anything to not remember
The mess you’re in
And you wont admit you’re the reason why

(Chorus)
You cant forgive you cant forget
you cant out run all your regrets
Through every tear you tell yourself you’re fine
You cant hold you cant let go
You fake a smile that’s just for show
You cant go back cause no you’re outta time
When your head don’t know what your heart leaves behind

Put your memories in a suitcase
Get on a plane
Find yourself a new place
Where it snows and rains

You pour yourself another glass of pain

(Chorus)

( Instrumental)

(Last Chorus)
You cant hold you cant let go
You fake a smile that’s just for show
You cant go back cause no you’re outta time
Through every tear you tell your self your fine
When your head don’t know what your heart leaves behind
Track Name: Ease Me On Up
I can't sleep now

I couldn't sleep then

Not sure of the how

Not sure of the when


all the days and nights

seem like they’re rolled into one

I don’t remember

When the two became the one


(Chorus)
Ease me on up

Ease my troubled mind

Higher higher higher i will climb close to your love

Ease me on up




I’d give it all back

if i knew it would matter

Like some golden calf

baptized through the fire

Forty suns and moons

Means that the stars will align

I’ll make it through

Cause i know that you won't leave me behind
Track Name: True Companion
I don’t have much I can offer, But all I have is your’s to take
Theres no one more tender or softer
i’ll be the best love you can make

I'm on my way through the canyons I'm on my way back to you
ill be your one True companion I'll be the one to see you through


I Was born a deser’ts daughter, Someday I’ll leave like the wind
I’ll be your cool drink of water
when I hold you again

On my way through the canyons I'm on my way back to you
ill be your one True companion I'll be the one to see you through


Bridge:
Wait , wait i wont be long
suns going down
But I'm coming home
wait, wait you’re where i belong
ill be your one True companion
Track Name: Build My Mountain
Pushing , pulling the river
Trying to make it go my way
All I saw was fear
When I looked into the mirror
It was someone else’s face

I got tired of seeing from the outside
I never felt like me
Gonna stop where I’m standing
Take this life I’m handed
And start here on my knees

(Chorus)
I’m Gonna Build My Mountain
I’m Gonna Build It High
I’m Gonna Build My Mountain
Until I touch the sky
I’m gonna keep on climbing
One dream at a time
Never knowing what I’ll find

(Verse 2)
Winning , Losing the rat race
But what do you sacrifice
If I keep on running
I am afraid I will become someone
My granny wouldn’t like


(Chorus)

Bridge

It’s the road less taken
It’s not for everyone
But it’s the life I’m making
In my heart, my song , my home

( Chorus)
I’m Gonna Build My Mountain
I’m Gonna Build It High
I’m Gonna Build My Mountain
Until I touch the sky
I’m gonna keep on climbing
One dream at a time
Never knowing
I like never knowing
what I’ll find
Track Name: That Train
I went looking for my angel
didn’t mean what I said last night
found his empty cup, keys to the house still hung up
his boots are gone along with his old red truck
Ohh I wish my eyes couldn’t see
ooh I wish my ears couldn’t hear

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train
pulling out the soul of me
taken all my everything
that train

What do I do? -oh how will I stand
when my whole world is shaking nearby
go back to bed pull the covers over my head
Cry out a river till my eyes run bone dry
Ooh I would lay myself down on the tracks
if I knew it would drive it all back before (that train)

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train
pulling out the soul of me
taken all my everything
that train


What kind of love leaves you so little?
Broken, brittle
Blinded in the smoke of that train
oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

(instrumental)

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train

That train, oooh that train
That train, oooh that train


pulling out the soul of me
taken all my everything
that train
