about

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: Tyler's song
Tyler’s Song:

If you step outside today, could you breathe a bit for me and let me know just how it feels to be
alive and doing well, not afraid to kiss and tell. Let me know just what I’m fighting for

Don’t blink, don’t breathe, just lay with me. I promise it’s not over
If I fall tonight, it will all be alright. I promise it’s not over
This is not goodbye.

I’ll be up here smiling down, and at first you'll wait around, but I hope that one day you'll learn to carry on
And I'll watch our children grown, and I hope you’ll let them know, of their daddy who's been watching all along

Don’t blink, don’t breathe, just lay with me. I promise it’s not over
If I fall tonight, it will all be alright. I promise it’s not over
This is not goodbye.

and I want you to know that when you feel alone
I’ll be smiling down, lookin’ out for you

If you step outside today, could you breathe a bit for me and let me know just what I’m fighting for

Don’t blink, don’t breathe, just lay with me. I promise it’s not over
If I fall tonight, it will all be alright. I promise it’s not over
This is not goodbye.

could you breathe a bit for me
Track Name: Live for the moment
Live for the Moment:


old woman doing nothing thinking about her life and where she went wrong, and how it passed her by
old woman doing nothing thinking about her dreams and how it always seemed they were right next door
she never got a chance to dance the way she wanted to, she never got her time to fly.

Live for the moment, dream for tonight, don’t take it for granted or this life will pass you by

little lady young and jaded thinking about the road that lies ahead from now and where it's going to lead her
little lady young and jaded gonna get married to Mr. Right
but when she’s walking down the aisle she’ll think about the fact she never got her chance to dance, she never got to fly

Live for the moment, dream for tonight, don’t take it for granted or this life will pass you by

another day is coming, another day is going, another life is wasted another heart is broken
and every day keeps coming, every day keeps going, never let them waste away, let your heart be broken

little baby pretty baby brought into the world today, she listens as the doctors say
little baby pretty baby she don’t know about the troubles of the world, she’s just one little girl.
but maybe one day she can dance the way her mama always wanted to. She'll finally get to fly

Live for the moment, dream for tonight, don’t take it for granted or this life will pass you by

little lady pretty baby older woman little girl.
Track Name: Re-defining Love
Re-Defining Love:


I was put here for a reason, and I’m pretty sure it’s you
I wanna dance with you in shadows, till all your lies become the truth
we can stop and smell the roses, put the petals in your hair
we can lay in bed all evening, call in sick cuz we don’t care.

singing I do believe you were meant for me.

I wanna sing to you all over
under the stars in Tennessee
grab a drink in Carolina
make love from Boston to DS
well have a slice in New York City
then stop in Paris on the way
ride a hurricane through Cleveland
then catch a train back to LA

singing I do believe you were meant for me.
Track Name: Queen Size Bed
Queen Size Bed:

How can you not believe in evolution, and everything that came before man and woman
How can you not believe in common sense? Guns and bombs and chicken wires wont ever make amends
the only thing I lied about, was everything I ever said
we used to pass time, laying around and making love in your queen size bed

you're making me tired of weeping
staying up all night, when I should have been sleeping, in your queen size bed

how can you not believe in devolution? taxi cab confessions of modern blueprints
how can you not believe in love at first sight? how can you trust anything less, stay with me tonight and forever
do you wanna get high? never come down....torn and tattered, chase the stars
you’re the only one I want
you’re the only one I need

you’re making me tired of weeping
staying up all night when I should have been sleeping in your queen size bed

this is not love but I will settle for so much less
I want to touch you baby, I don’t care about respect

I’m in your queen size bed

god and all of his architects are laughing at my expense
have mercy on the criminal he's just trying to get ahead
all I got is my single and my blood is stained red
I don’t mind being alone as long as no one else is lying

in your queen size bed
Track Name: The Sun will shine again
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: Perfectly Imperfect
Perfectly Imperfect:


maybe everything I say don't come out perfect
and I’m not always the man you want me to be
but baby all those fights I swear they're worth it
everything’s gonna work out one day, you'll see

cuz baby our love, is sweeter than wine
and our love gets stronger with time

and I’m gonna be
your lullaby
the one that you dream of
every night
and I’m gonna be
your perfect sunrise
the one that you wake for
for the rest of your life
and its gonna be
baby, you and me

maybe I can't paint your world in diamonds
but I can color you beautiful with the words that I say
and maybe I can't always make you smile
but I’ll catch your teardrops when you're not ok

cuz baby our love, is sweeter than wine
and our love gets stronger with time

and I’m gonna be
your lullaby
the one that you dream of
every night
and I’m gonna be
your perfect sunrise
the one that you wake for
for the rest of your life
and its gonna be
baby, you and me
Track Name: Sara-Nade
Sara-Nade:


the simple glow of a silhouette cast on your face tonight
and I can feel you breathing in like everything’s all right
but do you even notice the look in my eye
when I hear you say goodbye
and I don’t want to know
where you're laying down tonight
time and time again
you break me
why can't you let me in

I remember days when a sara-nade could lift your soul so high
but you don’t smile now, its been a while since I’ve seen you even try
and do you even notice the way that I die
when I hear you cry at night
and you don't want to know
why I feel the way I do
and time and time again
I break you
why can't I let you in

somber sounds of the pouring rain comfort me tonight
but you are somewhere soaked in pain no happiness in sight
but did you even notice the look in my eye
the night I said goodbye
and time and time again
she breaks me
why can't she let me in
time and time again
Track Name: The girl next door
The Girl Next Door:

I miss your blonde hair and your blue eyes
that look made me capsize
I miss your fake smile and your pretty face
that look made me never want to waste
a moment with you
and I'm still with you
you're always on my mind

I'm calling out
screaming out for you
Elisha
and where did you go
I'm calling out
screaming out for you
Elisha
cuz I need you now tonight

I miss those late nights with those long drives
chasing sunsets till sunrise
I miss your back seat with those windows down
cool breeze where are you now

I know O need you
but I still need to
take some time to heal

I'm calling out
screaming out for you
Elisha
and where did you go
I'm calling out
screaming out for you
Elisha
cuz I need you now tonight

and I cant stand to see you go
Track Name: Waiting for You
Waiting For You:


after all the broken hearts and the faith I lost in you
a thousand broken roads, girl they lead me back to you
I’d forsaken everything and left my world to disappear
but everything falls apart
when you’re gone

and after all the fairy tales
I can taste your jealousy
a thousand bitter tears, they dance on your pretty cheek
and they fall to the rhythm of my songs like they know the melodies
and everything falls apart when your gone

and I’m waiting for you....
Track Name: Untitled
Untitled:


I slept away the morning
and half the afternoon
man, California’s killing me
like a snow angel in June.

I really should get out of here
before I go insane
but I’m addicted to a lot of things
besides your cheap cocaine.

and I’m afraid that all of my mistakes are all you see
you know I need you

won’t you stay, I need you now
I’m breaking down, I’m breaking out
won’t you stay and save me now
cuz I’m breaking down
and I’m breaking out
and I need you now

I spent another night with you
and everything’s the same
for once my life was colorful
for once this heart was tame

I guess I’m wrapped up in your attitude
overwhelmed by sex appeal
I want to reach my hand out now and touch something that’s real

and I’m afraid that all of my mistakes are all you see
you know I need you

won’t you stay, I need you now
I’m breaking down, I’m breaking out
won’t you stay and save me now
cuz I’m breaking down
and I’m breaking out
and I need you now

Every time I think of you I get a little crazier inside my head
where are you now
every other thought I have is you and me, it’s killing me baby

won’t you stay, I need you now
I’m breaking down, I’m breaking out
Won’t you stay and save me now
cuz I’m breaking down
and I’m breaking out
and I need you now
