about

I call this album Offhand Footnotes because it's just that: Some offhand stories, footnotes if you will, about times of my life told through my own interpretations of jazz, R&B, Swing, Spoken word, acoustic, and funk rhythms on the tracks.

about

Austin Carthell Arizona

After years around various bands and artists I've grown to dig the real feel that music has when it's played live and I try to bring that to my tracks along with my own flavor of musicality.

Track Name: Daydreamin'
Verse 1
Sitting here no worries on my mind
I can finally say I've left them all behind
I guess maybe if I could go back
take all my blessings and give some back
there'd be more to gain but I can't complain I'm content I'm day dreamin'

I'm day dreamin' I'm realixin' I'm fine
I'm day dreamin' I'm content with life
you'll find me day dreamin', I'm relaxin I'm fine
I got nothin' on my mind.

Verse 2
I've had a pretty good life so far to be honest
I can't complain
sure money wasn't 'round all the time but I've always had my family
and I've learned in life that when things go bad
it's those who love us that help them pass
got my soul at ease I'm not happy or sad I'm content I'm day dreamin;

I'm day dreamin' I'm realixin' I'm fine
I'm day dreamin' I'm content with life
you'll find me day dreamin', I'm relaxin I'm fine

I got nothin on my mind.
I got nothin on my mind
i got nothin on my mind
Track Name: Moonlight
Verse 1
I don't know what it is you worry about,
but if your'e anything at all like me
you need to ease your mind sometimes you find you'd rather be
chilled back . You need to set it all aside
sit and relax your body I think

Chorus:
you should be bathing in the moonlight
and counting every one of the stars
set back relaxing till the sunshine comes
just sitting at the edge of the water

Verse2
In those time you can't handle, when things don't go your way
I have got a news flash for you baby tomorrow is another day
where you can chill back and leave it aside
sit and relieve your mind I think

Chorus:
you should be bathing in the moonlight
and counting every one of the stars
set back relaxing till the sunshine comes
just sitting at the edge of the water

Bridge:
Just sit back relax and let the water wash it all away
take some time ease your mind, don't think about it
you've got to take some sand in your hand.
Let the water wash it all away
take some time ease your mind stop stressin

Chorus x 2
you should be bathing in the moonlight
and counting every one of the stars
set and relax until the sunshine comes
just sitting at the edge of the water
Track Name: Apologize
Verse 1:
No regrets that’s what you used to say
You lived for love and you found your love in me
Without a doubt you gave it all to me
And said there wasn’t nothing you won’t do for me
Believe it or not my love so scared that I’d fall in love
I chose to ignore those things you said to me, and baby

Chorus:
I gotta apologize for the wrong that I’ve done
I gotta apologize for never lovin you
I gotta apologize for the way things were when I went away
I gotta apologize for this taking me so long

Verse 2:
I think it’s been about 3 weeks
since the last time I saw you girl
And I wanted so bad to ask you how you're doin
see what’s going down in your world
But I was too scared to do it had my chance and I blew it
shoulda swallowed my pride
I’m not asking you to love me girl please don’t walk away from me
I just wanna apologize

Chorus
I gotta apologize for the wrong that I’ve done
I gotta apologize for never lovin you
I gotta apologize for the way things were when I went away
I gotta apologize for this taking me so long

Bridge:
And I know this took too long
Yes I know I did you wrong
But I was hoping that the next time I see you
I could walk right up to you
And say what I need to say

Chorus x2
Track Name: YUB
V1:
It was the same old same old summer day
The clouds were light, the sky was bare
And then I saw her standing there
Yeah she looked right through me
I said wait who is she...
What kind of woman could she be

Refrain:
I bet she never lets the sun go down
I bet she sings when no one is around

Chorus:
I wanna get to know you
Where you from? Tell me what you like
As soon as you came through I had to look
Yep you’re beautiful- Yep you’re beautiful
I really wanna know who you truly are
On the other side.
I don’t understand girl you got me shook
Yep you’re beautiful- Yep you’re beautiful

V2:
So in the same old lame old dumb way
I said hey lady what’s your name
and she turned and smiled at me
So I said I’d like to get to know you (yeah)
She said ok, then she said maybe
I can show you who I am

Refrain:
I bet she never lets the sun go down
Without the music playin
I bet she sings when no one is around
She keeps her body swayin

Bridge:
Now I’m in no, no rush to leave
Asked her would she please sit with me
She said sure I’ll stay for just one drink
I told her as soon as u came through I had to look
Yep you’re beautiful- yep you’re beautiful

Chorus
Track Name: Be My Girl
Verse 1:
I can’t trust my feelings baby cuz really I don’t know you
Not a month since you came into my life and what do you go and do?
You say another thing that makes me wanna stay with you
Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind that I’ve had girls on the side
Among the other things that I left behind cuz I met you

Chorus:
I need to break it down so that you understand
I know I’m not your man but you could be my girl
I try to verbalize it but I think I can
Show you that I’m the man that you need in your world

Verse 2:
I’d like to get you all the things you never had
Know what you do and you don’t like and in the late night
I wanna be the one you’re kissing when you close your eyes
I’ll be that guy you call
when some’n gone wrong you need a man to handle it
Beauty my eyes behold I’m feelin some’n strong I just can’t stand it
Listen baby I’m just saying you got a quality that I can’t let go
You mind is beautiful body is caramel
I can’t do without it oh I’m feelin your flavor.

Chorus:
I need to break it down so that you understand
I know I’m not your man but you could be my girl
I try to verbalize it but I think I can
Show you that I’m the man that you need in your world

Break
Chorus

Bridge:
I’ve made some major changes in my life
it’s strange cuz I met you right about the same time
It happened to us for a reason
I’m trynna let you see that you need me I’ll be there believe that
I got to get this off my chest. I came across the best.
I won’t settle for less not in the mean time
It wouldn’t be right we got the same vibe and you can be mine

Chorus x2
Track Name: What You're Thinkin
Verse 1:
I’m just about to leave you grab me yeah
And we walk toward the dance floor

With your waist you move your body
smooth like a sexual professional
I can tell you want it cuz you
Don’t even try to hide it baby

Chorus:

she looked at me and took my hand
As if she knew exactly what it was that I was thinkin

She was bitin her thumb as if she was waitin just to give me some
She said “let’s go, let’s leave.. cuz all I want is you, and me
" slow down baby"
Where are you from? I think I wanna get to know you some
… She said shut up sit down
Have your self another round before I knew it I drank
