Jake Coco Los Angeles, California

I am going to stick to the ever-so cliche answer of "everything". It is the truth though, every second of my life goes into every song that I write.

Track Name: If I Were An Artist (Acoustic Version)
If I were an artist

I could paint you red, like the passion you feel
It might not be colorful, but at least it'd be real

And I could paint you green, like the envy you know, when you're all alone at night
With nowhere to go

And I could paint you grey, to show how you're empty
To show how you don't care
So the world can all see

And I could paint you clear,
Id make you graceful
Id make you beautiful
Cuz that's what you are

And I could paint you taupe
Because they say that its soothing
But youre like a drug to me
That could use some abusing

And I could paint you gold
To show you're immortal
Would that make you honest?
Would it make you sincere?

Scarlet and Clover, all the things we talked about
Violet and green and the world in between
The grey skies in your blue eyes, broken hearts are all that you know

I could be clear
Yeah you could see through me
And I could be beautiful
Just to be yours

Just to be.

I could paint you clear,
Id make you graceful
Id make you beautiful
Cuz that's what you are

And I could be clear, and I could be graceful
I swear Id be colorful just to be yours

If I were an artist, then I could be yours
Track Name: The Sun Will Shine Again (Acoustic Version)
The Sun Will Shine Again:


I don’t believe I’ve ever seen you before
but you remind me of this girl I used to know
chock full of innocence with a bitter smile to change the world
but let your shoulders rest tonight, you’re just one little girl

and you’ll see better days, your better days are coming soon

don't give up, no don't give in
look over your shoulder
the sun will shine again
don't break don't let them see you cry
the sun will shine again

rain clouds come pouring down there’s no time for parades
shelters coming soon I swear you'll have some place to stay
happiness means nothing when you feel it all alone
without you rainbows turn to gray and home just isn’t home

but I’ll see better days, my better days are coming soon....

don't give up, no don't give in
look over your shoulder
the sun will shine again
don't break don't let them see you cry
the sun will shine again

they're dragging you up they’re letting you down, making you laugh while they're making you frown
the worlds so confusing but that’s how it goes
open your eyes
don't let them close

don't give up, no don't give in
look over your shoulder
the sun will shine again
don't break don't let them see you cry
the sun will shine again
Track Name: Song For Someone (Acoustic Version)
I could feel it in my bones, when she called me on the phone
take a breathe and swallow hard, cause her bodies not alone.
who am I deciding who can live or die
it isn't right
it isn't right

Im so sorry all I ever said was goodbye

take a walk to clear my mind, but you're with me all the time
I'll never know what you would be and it tears me up inside
Does life start with a soul or with a heart?
I'll never know
I'll never know

Im so sorry all I ever said was goodbye

So if you can hear me now, I'll do my best to make you proud
I'm sure you're somewhere in the stars, So Id better sing this loud

Im so sorry all I ever said was goodbye
