Lyrics to “How does it Feel” by Catherine Scholz

How Does it Feel?

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

How does it feel to be whole?

How does it feel to be whole?

To stop the world just to listen to your soul,

becoming whole.


How does it feel to be found?

How does it feel to be found?

Walking alone or just standing on the ground,

you will be found.


(instrumental)


How does it feel to be you?

How does it feel to be you?

There is nothing in this world I would not do,

my friend, for you.


How does it feel to be free?

How does it feel to be free?

Wish you were here standing right in front of me,

feeling free.


(instrumental)

Lyrics to “Cactus Flower” by Catherine Scholz

Cactus Flower

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

Honey, I’m just sittin’ here thinkin’ on you.

Funny, I wasn’t expecting to feel so blue.

But darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Now when I said I love you, I did not lie.

Did you mean it when you said goodbye?

Honey, I’d be so tickled if you’d knock on my door.

Funny, I guess I’m not your sweetheart anymore.

But darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Now when I said I love you, I did not lie.

Did you mean it when you said goodbye?

(instrumental verse)

Honey, you’re shoulder’s colder than the Brainerd snow.

Funny, I never thought I’d have to let you go.

Cuz darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Now when I said I love you, I did not lie.

Did you mean it when you said goodbye?

Now honey, I’m not fixin’ on someone new.

Funny, all I’m thinkin’ ’bout is loving you.

Cuz darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Lyrics to “Movin’ On” by Catherine Scholz

Movin’ On

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

Rain is falling, I’m movin’ on.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Placed my heart into your hands.

Oh my soul, it understands.

You came to me quickly.

You caught me mid-air.

You loved me so neatly.

And now you’re not here to see me fly.

Rain is falling, I’m movin’ on.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Love is all around.

Oh my soul, should know by now.

You came to me quickly.

You caught me mid-air.

You loved me so neatly.

And now you’re not here to see me fly.

Rain is falling, I’m movin’ on.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Love is all around.

Oh my soul, should know by now.

Oh my soul, should know by now.

Lyrics to “President” by Catherine Scholz

President

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

I’m looking for a President

Who knows how to speak his mind

You know I haven’t found one yet

And we’re running out of time.

I’m looking for a President

Who knows what can be justified

This world has gotten so complex

And nothing’s black or white.

What are you afraid of?

What do you desire?

Dive into the water.

Walk through the fire.

I’m looking for a President

Who knows what’s wrong and right.

It doesn’t take intelligence

To order up a fight.

I’m looking for a President

To get this planet unified

Don’t matter if she’s black or red

Or even left or right.

What are we afraid of?

What do we desire?

Dive into the water.

Walk through the fire.


Lyrics to “Last Long, Blue Day” by Catherine Scholz

Last Long, Blue Day

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz, copyright 2008

Last long, blue day.

Last longer than damp night.

Last longer than human promise.

Last a long time…

And If I could change your mind

I’d buy you a little time and

Find you a peaceful place inside

To unwind.

Shake hard, blue sky.

Shake harder than shame.

Shake the blues right out of yourself.

Shake harder.

If I could change your mind

I’d buy you a little time and

Find you a peaceful place inside

To unwind.

Lyrics to “Just Not Like Her”

Just Not Like Her

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

Some say she rations her kisses.

Some say she’s selling the lot.

Some say she’s smoking the smidgens of something she simply is not.

Come drink from her wineglass of wishes.

Maybe she’ll give you a shot.

‘Cause brother, you’re just standing witness.

Remember the love that you’ve got.

You see, this is her reckless memory of kisses and sweetness and wine.

Some say that she’s pining for penance,

dropping light-years down endless heart-mines.

But silence is all she requires for dancing and diving within.

So no one can make her a promise.

No one can do that again.

Can love track her down in the darkness?

She bids love to wring out the red.

Can lovers reshape the old treasons that run like the wind through her head?

She’s never been quite so forsaken.

She’s never been quite so unsure.

Her soul has not been quite this shaken.

She’s never allowed this before.

And it’s just not like her to be waiting around,

Standing alone with her feet on the ground.

No, it’s just not like her to be humble and free,

Hungry for humor and mystery.

Please come to her garden of wishes

and maybe she’ll give you a plot.

‘Cause brother you’re just standing witness.

Remember the love that you’ve got.

Lyrics to “Whirlwind Girl” by Catherine Scholz

Whirlwind Girl

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz (©2008)

Whirlwind girl, spinning dust.
Spinning Tree, she must be lost by now.

By now her leaves have gone from green
to shades of yellow, orange, red,
to bridges, then to rivers,
then to sea…

Whirlwind girl, spinning time.
Spinning Tree, she must be fine right now.
By now she’s light, though lost and nameless,
hungrier, though young and blameless,
strange to be given something free.

CHORUS:

Growing her roots straight down,
waving her leafless crown,
holding the cryin’ ground,
Spinning Tree.

Whirlwind girl, spinning gold.
Spinning stars, she must be old by now.
And like the nights, her sighs grow longer.
And as her tender roots grow stronger,
Her heart becomes a whirlwind spreading dust,
as it must.

Whirlwind girl, spinning round.
Holding Earth, she knows to kiss the ground.
Forever home, though lost and nameless,
Hungrier, though young and blameless,
Strange to be given something free. Spinning Tree.

CHORUS

Whirlwind Woman, spinning fire.
Spinning sound, her own desires near.
Happier, her name is faceless,
Healthier, though old and blameless,
strange to be given something free,
and now it’s strange to be GIVING something free,
Spinning Tree.

CHORUS

Songwriter Showcase Flyer

Doors open at 3:00pm.  Admission: $10-$20 sliding scale.

Lindsey Campbell
Lindsay Campbell

More information about Lindsey coming soon.
For now, I will do my personal best to describe the music of this emerging singer-songwriter from Grass Valley.  Her music is impassioned with fire and humor. It tells the story of a young mother coming to grips with her past and moving into a new future. Campbell envelopes Ani DiFranco’s angry style with her own soft edges.

Jenn Rogar
Jenn Rogar

Jenn Rogar is a mother, a teacher, and even has a law degree, though she doesn’t intend to use it in the traditional manner. Jenn uses it to be part of the human solution for human rights, peace and justice. She is a rabblerouser, a folksinger, and a singer/songwriter in the tradition of Holly Near and Joan Baez, using her music as a tool to educate and incite pacifism and activism and awareness.  Her music is also intended to invite sentimentality along the lines of Kate Wolf and Janis Ian. Otherwise her music is funny as more folk songs should be so that we may find humor in this crazy experiment called human life.

Angela Wesley Hardin
Angela Wesley Hardin

In Angela’s words on MySpace: These songs are mostly a take on Laura Nyro for the twenty-first century … with melody informed by classical music and the Great
American Songbook, rhythmic keyboard figurations, trippy background
harmonies, a shade of jazz, and a smidgen of Texas blues.

Catherine says: Angela came to Nevada County from Austin and combines her depth of musical and writing experience into her well-crafted and beautifully-sung songs.

Check out “Like the Fog” on her MySpace page with lyrics like, “I am floating just above you and I know how to love you, oh I do… here in the fog, blown by the wind, the door swings open, I come streamin’ in with dreamin’ eyes…”


Karen Joy Brown
Karen Joy Brown

For the past five years, singer songwriter Karen Joy Brown has surprised and delighted local fans and media with what the Chico News and Review calls her “deeply soulful voice”. Terre Reynolds of KZFR Face the Music describes her as “having the whole package…..a beautiful voice, can play well, and writes beautiful songs.” But what new listeners invariably attest is that it is almost impossible to hear her sing without being struck by her singular ability to express emotion through her uniquely rich voice. If her mesmerizing vocals deliver poetry that seems to know you, then the guileless folk-funk guitar will make you feel like everything’s gonna be alright. With simple, sincere arrangements of originals and “well-chosen covers” ranging from the Police to Patsy Cline, Brown transforms everyday events into stories that enchant, seduce, and inspire.
