It’s Good

$12.00Add to cart

There’s a restlessness to award-winning, Pacific Northwest songwriter, Toni Land. Ever-searching…and always curious. Toni’s new EP – It’s Good – perfectly captures that restless spirit. It’s the sound-snapshot of an artist constantly moving forward. One who doesn’t do the expected thing. One who is forever thirsting to draw from a deeper creative well. This evolving path has led Toni to this, her sixth release. And no surprise – It’s Good is very good!

Toni plays equal parts mad scientist and weary romantic in the dark and charming, tom-tom drive and electric boot-swamp of “Frankenstein,” the first single from the CD. From the bang and twang of the opening kicker “Ghosts Of Regret” it’s obvious Toni’s moved into new and adventurous territory. Here, emotional battle lines are drawn and Toni dares us to cross them. “Good People” moves us across a soulful and hypnotic groove-wasteland of memories and dreams, while “Greatness” serves as a reminder of the power of an absolutely gorgeous ballad. An emotional highlight. We close the album with the atmospheric and haunting “Tree Song”, which from the downbeat drops us into the breathing and beating heart of an ancient living world.

Frankenstein” has charted across Adult Contemporary, Country and Top 40 radio formats. Her music has received airplay throughout the US as well as in Europe, Canada, and Russia ever since her first single, “Have You Ever Seen Your Real Love?” from Chocolate Cake for Breakfast which climbed to the Top 40 chart.

“Toni Land-I love her! I’ve been playing her and playing her and then I’ve been playing her some more.” -Mathew Richards, KTIL


  • Crazed and Dazed

    Crazed and Dazed (T. Land©2020)

    I was just fine, I worked it out

    no war just peace, on my own cloud

    thought I was hot could call my own shot

    do what I want when I want

     

    prechorus

    but then you walked in

    one quick flash one spark to the heart

    then the crash then a boom boom boom then a hush in the roomˆ

     

    chorus

    left me crazed and dazed

    was it when you moved when you walked

    was it words that you said when you talked

    left me crazed and dazed

    That look in your eye, I don’t know why

    I’m scared I’m this way to stay

    Crazed and Dazed.

     

    Can’t say it was fun, all such a blur

    not sure what I said, not sure what I heard

    felt I was stoned oh you took me home

    could not say no to you

     

    prechorus

    cuz when you walked in

    one quick flash one spark to the heart

    then the crash then the boom boom boom then a hush in the room

     

    chorus

    left me crazed and dazed

    was it when you moved when you walked

    was it words that you said when you talked

    left me crazed and dazed

    That look in your eye, I don’t know why

    I’m scared I’m this way to stay

    Crazed and Dazed.

     

    bridge

    Was it a shot to the brain

    Was I hit by a train

    A gun set on stun

    Oh no is this love?

     

    That left me crazed and dazed

    was it when you moved when you walked

    was it words that you said when you talked

    left me crazed and dazed

    that look in your eye, I don’t know why

    but I’m scared I’m this way to stay

    Crazed and Dazed.

  • Fit Into My Future (single)

    “Fit into my Future” (T. Land 2019)

     

    I can’t fit into my future with you ooooh

    You’re all party hat and confetti

    I’m still getting dressed and I’m not ready

    You don’t see I’ve lost my sight

    I can’t go blind, one more night like I used to

    I can’t fit into my future with you

     

    I can’t fit into my future with you ooooh

    Your dreams never stop, they’re amplified

    I live quietly unsatisfied

    I turned you down and all your noise

    I finally hear my own voice coming through

    I can’t fit into my future with you

     

    b section

    I’m on a footpath of bricks of clay

    You’re flying down a 6 lane highway

    I’m scared I won’t reach myself

    I’m scared I’m running out of time

     

     

    I can’t fit into my future with you oooh

    I was drawn to your confidence

    But now I see through your dominance

    I want love not control

    It took me down now I know what to do

    I can’t fit into my future

    I can’t fit into my future with you

  • Frankenstein (It’s Good)

    Frankenstein
    (Toni Land ©2018)

    I’m really out of breath
    From all the times I’ve held it in
    I tiptoe round your past
    All your loves, that didn’t last

    You hold back and complain
    You say I want too much from you
    I know you pulled the plug
    Once again, on our love

    I’m gonna build me a Frankenstein
    Rob the grave, find all the right parts
    I’m gonna build me a Frankenstein
    In case one breaks, I’ll give him two hearts
    Get a brand new start

    Won’t be no scar that I don’t know
    The only ones will be skin deep
    Nobodies ghost living in his head
    No one but me in his bed

    We’ll boogie under the moon
    My perfect man, my perfect plan
    Drink our favorite wine,
    Toast to love, that’s all mine.

    I’m gonna build me a Frankenstein
    Rob the grave, find all the right parts
    I’m gonna build me a Frankenstein
    In case one breaks, I’ll give him two hearts

    He’s gonna meet my own little monster living inside of me
    He’s gonna meet my own little monster living inside of me

    I’m gonna build me a Frankenstein
    Rob the grave, find all the right parts
    I’m gonna build me a Frankenstein
    In case one breaks, I’ll give him two hearts

    He’s gonna be, he’s gonna be, he’s gonna be all mine
    My own Frankenstein
    He’s gonna be, he’s gonna be, he’s gonna be all mine
    My own Frankenstein
    He’s gonna be, he’s gonna be, he’s gonna be all mine

  • Brand New World (What the Heart Knows)

    Brand new world (©2011T. Land & T. Ellis)

    Powers out, the wind is loud

    Birds have found their caves

    Count the candles, pile the wood

    Chant nothing or everything be saved

     

    Time for a priest, time for a prayer

    The dark is wide as I see

    the ground’s the ceiling , it’s comin’ down

    This world don’t come with no guarantee

    Chorus

    (It’s a brand new world) but the sun ain’t shinin’ yet, it ain’t shining yet

    (It’s a brand new world) just about to happen

     

    Call me young, call me old

    What you say, don’t matter none

    Been through the alleys, been basement deep

    Seen things you can’t kill with a gun

     

    Flown blind, through the trees,

    Been buried in the dirt

    Passed through the gate and back again

    Just to stay on top of this earth

     

    (It’s a brand new world) but the sun aint shinin’, it aint shining yet

    (It’s a brand new world) just about to happen

     

    Bridge (chant) This is the night god talked to me outloud

    This is the night I was lost and I was found

    This is the night god talked to me outloud

    This is the night I was lost and I was found

     

    (It’s a brand new world) but the sun ain’t shinin’ yet, it ain’t shining yet

    (It’s a brand new world) just about to happen It’s a brand new world but the sun aint shinin’ yet, it aint shining yet

    (It’s a brand new world) just about to happen It’s a brand new world but the sun aint shinin’ yet, it aint shining yet

    (It’s a brand new world) just about to happen

    This is the night god talked to me outloud It’s a brand new world just about to happen

    This is the night god talked to me outloud

  • No More (What the Heart Knows)

    No More (©2011 T. Land & T. Ellis)

    I’m not paying no middle man no more

    Done bribing the guard at the gate

    Won’t try to get you to love me no more

    I’m creating my own fate

    Not waiting for that shoe to fall no more

    I won’t hold my breath till you’ll agree

    Used to love to love you, don’t feel good no more

    Can’t be what you want me to be

     

    You can leave

    You can stay

    Either way will be ok

    You can yell

    You can cry

    You won’t stop me no more

     

    Things aren’t black, white, right or wrong no more

    We each got a dark side to face

    Not a cruel word left for me to say no more

    Hey blaming you just a waste

    Won’t write a new ending for us no more

    That plan always falls flat

    Don’t want to have to change my ways no more

    I’ve lost my taste for that

     

    You can leave

    you can stay

    Either way will be OK

    You can yell

    You can cry

    You won’t stop me from changing my life

    you can beg

    You can  lie

    Do what you feel like you

    You can dance

    You can cheer you won’t stop me, nothing’s gonna stop me no more

    Let me drive this ole car, for awhile or so

    Staaay, stay in the car

    I don’t wanna go home and be alone

     

    It’s time for a rest, we’ve been through too much

    Put your gloves down, there’s no fight in us

    Leave the hurt behind.

    Forget all we said

    Just feel the wind blow, lay back your head

     

    Staaay, stay in the car

    don’t want to go home and beee alone

     

    B section

    And I’ve been there, right where you are

    I’ve been down that road you’re traveling.

    I’ve gone too far and

    If we get lost, then we could be found

    So stay on this road, let’s drive right now, right now

     

    Let’s leave this old town just leave it behind

    Go make a new start just let me drive

    Staaay, stay in the car

  • Dyin Aint No Bigga Thang

    Dyin Aint No Bigga Thang
    (T. Land ©2002 Wondergirl Music)

    He was assistant to the undertaker
    Everyday he’d walk to work there and back
    I say, “How can you hear all the woes of the world
    And still smile on me like that?”

    He said he knew he was God’s agent
    And he did not mind the role
    Helping people transistion
    You know, requires a hardy soul

    Chorus
    He’d say I am not afraid of dyin
    Dyin aint no bigga thing
    He’d say dyin aint nothing to fear
    If you’re really living while you’re living here

    He’d say I go lie down in the dark dirty woods
    I Let nature come on and heal me
    Don’t need no inside of no church
    no prayin on my knees

    Chorus repeat

    Spoken:  He said a lotta things to me. He’d say
    Girlie… In all the living I’ve done, the saddest part aint about dying.  What’s sad is unsaid hellos, unsaid goodbyes. The  saddest heartbreakin thing
    I’ve ever seen is unfinished lives.  Now that’s sad.

    See I love to hear the wind blow
    I love the sunlight shinin’ through the trees
    And I don’t mind the rain
    That’s all just living to me

    Chorus repeat

  • Real Deal

    The Real Deal
    (T. Land ©2002 Wondergirl Music)

    He always looks me right in the eyes
    Seems intrigued every time I smile
    He takes his time when he’s talking to me
    Like I’m interesting, captivating
    Around him I feel sexy and witty
    I may be fooled but it don’t matter to me
    I like to stand close, pretend I belong to him
    Pretend he’s crazy about me

    Hey hey Lucky me He makes me feel I’m the real deal
    Everybody feels the same way but that’s ok
    He makes me feel I’m the real deal
    Lucky me

    I call him up when I’m feeling down
    He comes and takes me out on the town
    Where glasses stay filled, where plates are never empty
    Where music’s always loud
    He likes to talk commodities and fine/good guitars
    He’s a man of sensibility and charm
    He’s gotta a way of taking simple pleasures
    making ‘em into a work of art

    Hey hey Lucky me He makes me feel I’m the real deal
    Everybody feels the same way but that’s ok
    He makes me feel I’m the real deal
    Bridge
    I know better than to dive down too deep
    But I’m already up to my neck
    Life’s too short to miss this happiness
    And feeling like I’m the real deal

    Lead over verse

    Hey hey Lucky me He makes me feel I’m the real/ deal
    Everybody feels the same way but that’s ok
    He makes me feel I’m the real
    Hey hey Lucky me He makes me feel I’m the real deal
    Everybody feels the same way but that’s ok
    He makes me feel I’m the real deal

    Hey lay down the whiskey
    Lay down the guns
    If time could talk stead of running you down
    It’d say let go the grudge and
    Let go the ragin’
    time a creepin up without a sound

    So you say I was your girlfriend
    You’ll have some more
    Stop mining those highs and lows
    Stop claiming you’re ruined
    Leave room for improvin
    Everybody paid up, nobody owes

    Face to face
    Fact to fact
    Time to forget
    The ghost of regret

    So we didn’t make the finish
    Didn’t pass the test
    Somethings don’t need flyin’ colors
    Don’t need my forgivin’
    Just call it living
    Pull yourself right out of the cellar

    Face to face
    Fact to fact
    Time to forget
    The ghost of regret who who

    Get up in the mornin
    Buy some pretty things
    Turn this ole shack into a home
    Dance in the kitchen
    Find things that need some fixin
    Quit scaring yourself when you’re alone

    Face to face
    Fact to fact
    Time to forget

  • Good People (It’s Good)
    Good People
    (Toni Land ©2018)

    My baby hates to close his eyes that’s why he up at night
    rather be in a crowd of trouble and fight
    I never hold a single thing against his tired soul
    I knew him long before the war took it’s toll
    Good people
    Good people
    Good people die a little everyday
    When they know something’s wrong but gotta do it anyway

    When I dream of him at night, I see an angel’s feet
    He’s hungry and he’s thirsty with nothing to eat
    I try to give him water, put it to his lips
    He turns his head away, won’t take a sip
    Good people
    Good people
    Good people die a little everyday
    When they know something’s wrong but gotta do it anyway

    Bridge
    I don’t walk in his shoes
    I can’t look through his eyes
    I don’t hear the bombs and
    I can’t feel the fire rise

    My baby’s locked the door again Trying his own case
    He’s the judge He’s the jury, in that dark lonely place
    He turns on the light again and gets out of bed
    Opens up his eyes still sees the dead

    Good people
    Stretched out on the rack of life,
    not sure where he belongs
    Good people
    Not sure if he was right,
    or if he’s wrong
    Good people
    Good people
    Good people

  • Greatness (It’s Good)

    Greatness
    (Toni Land ©2018)

    Your medals your trophies are all put away
    No one’s smiling, no ones cheering no one’s calling out your name
    When you’re walkin by
    The band’s quiet, no one’s toasting, you’re not dancing like a fool
    gotta step down, take it now, had to happen to you
    Go ahead and weep

    Greatness never gets off easy
    Even if you float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
    Greatness will knock you down to your knees
    But If you could know what I know, see what I see,
    You’re always a champion to me

    You had a dream, like a message, a blueprint to your soul
    Don’t hold back, take the steps now, like a dance you already know
    It’s all right there baby
    Before I loved you, before you wowed me, before the world it ever knew
    You’re spirit rose up, put an honor deep inside of you
    Oh it’s bitter sweet

    Greatness never gets off easy
    Even if you float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
    Greatness will knock you down to your knees
    But If you could know what I know, see what I see,
    You’re always a champion to me

    Greatness never gets off easy
    Even if you dance like a butterfly, sting like a bee
    Greatness will knock you down to your knees
    But If you could know what I know, see what I see,
    But If you could know what I know, see what I see,
    You’re always a champion to me

    Come sit under my branches
    Feel the cool breeze
    I’ve been around
    a thousand years.
    waiting
    come cry your grieving tears

    I’ll shelter your joy
    from the heat of your life
    As you lie down on
    blankets to sleep
    I’m waiting
    my leaves have piled deep
    I’m waiting, waiting
    for you

    The wisdom of your soul
    will hold me in silence
    look in your dreams
    grace, faith and time
    waiting
    with a gift of death
    I’m waiting, waiting
    for you

    Bridge
    After the seasons change
    so will the light
    after your tears all fall
    you’ll hear my call
    I’m waiting, waiting
    Waiting, waiting
    Waiting for you

    Fooling yourself fooling around (©2008 T. Land)

    I hate this state I put you in, again and again

    You need to find your joy inside. Don’t let it die

    You’re just fooling yourself fooling around with me

     

    Take your memories and leave, that’s all you need

    Don’t pack em up like precious cargo, ooo just go

    You’re just fooling yourself fooling around with me

    Doin all I can do (T. Land ©2008)

    Hey hey, What’s got into everyone these days

    Like a mazarati on an open highway

    I’m slow, slow, slow as an old pick up truck

    Kind for sale that cost about 50 bucks

     

    Hey I tell myself a nap is only fair

    ‘til I get here, I can’t get nowhere

    I swear Rome, no Rome wasn’t built in a day

    If I could get outta bed, it’ll all be ok , come on

    Doin’ all that I can do

    When you left, you stopped me in my tracks

    even my car gave up and that’s a fact Jack

    I’m racing in my head but my feet won’t move

    But I’m doin’ all that I can do,

    Down Here In The South (©2011 T. Land & T. Ellis)

    She worked for years in a field of weeds

    They said mam your job is make em all green

    Don’t worry honey,we’ll ship you up north

    With your mamma and your baby, just stay on course

     

    When you got nothing

    A dollars worth a lot

    When you got nothing

    Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Down here in the South

     

    Her husbands doing time for just speaking out his mind

    He believed in liberty, said it’d turn out all fine

    He taught her how to read and pledge allegiance to the flag

    Now for a buck, she’d give you the one in her bag

     

    When you got nothing

    A dollars worth a lot

    When you got nothing

    Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Down here in the South

     

    Two cops coming down hard on top of tenth

    Find an old worn out woman on the brink of death

    Strangled with an old flag on the last bus stop

    All dirty and crumbled and tied in a knot

     

    When you got nothing

    A dollars worth a lot

    When you got nothing

    Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

  • This Town Don’t Keep its People (What the Heart Knows)

    This Town Don’t Keep Its People.

    (©2011 T. Land)

    A lonely tender heart

    Don’t have a chance here

    it’s hard to put roots down in this cold cold ground

    People pack it up , can’t face another day

    broken trailers, rusted cars, signs of a quick get away

     

    This town don’t keep its people ‘round

    They all come long enough to find they aint strong enough

    This town don’t keep its people ‘round

    It a kind of a place that makes you face

    Everything gone wrong

     

    You were full of hope

    We were a new love

    It looked like something bright in this new found light

    Blame it on the storms just don’t you blame me

    Make another bed, find another town, tell another story

     

    This town don’t keep its people ‘round

    They all come long enough to find they aint strong enough

    This town don’t keep its people ‘round

    It a kind of a place that makes you face

    Everything gone wrong

  • Crazy Lilly (What the Heart Knows)

    Crazy Lilly (T. Land ©2005)

    Town people think she’s crazy, I know she’s not

    She just loves and hates ya, gives you all she’s got

    A little low on courage, kinda hard on herself

    But when she gets to dancing, she don’t need no help

    All drunk and dizzy

    They call her crazy

    Crazy Lilly

     

    Lilly knows a secret world, what it’s got to give

    Alone up on a mountain top, Lilly learned to live

    No one knows what Lilly knows Lilly knows a lot

    Of old ways, wise ways that people have forgot

    They call her crazy

    They call her crazy

    Crazy Lilly

     

    In the hills of Jacksonville, about a half days walk from town

    Everyone she ever knew is either dead or not around

    She been lonely so long

    She’s still holding on

    Crazy Lilly

     

    Lilly Lay her hands on Lilly raise the dead

    Her grandpa was a healer she learned the ways back then

    She was never of this world, only of the past

    Someone could walk again if they’d only asked

    They call her crazy

    They call her crazy

  • Just a Fool (What the Heart Knows)

    Just A Fool (©05 T. Land & T. Ellis)

    You were’t worth 30 cents when I first met you baby

    Scribbling schemes talking loud in your worn out shoes

    Out of track, out of time until you saw me coming

    Flying round the bend right on cue

     

    Love took you by the heart turned your whole life golden

    You had everything any man ever needs

    Could have planted roses with a little bit of patience

    But all you ever grew was a patch of weeds

     

    My love makes you rich like a king

    My love makes you lucky even as a fool

    Now you’re just a fool

    Just a fool

     

    Have you come back to me like a poor hungry begger

    Trying to put the pieces back together like they were

    It’s too late, you used up all your chances

    I found someone new who knows for sure

     

    He knows that my love makes him rich like a king

    My love makes him lucky even as a fool

    He knows he’s just a fool

    A lucky fool 00h00h 0hh

    Just a fool 00h00h 0hh

    Just a fool

    Solo

    He knows that my love makes him rich like a king

    My love made you lucky even as a fool

    Now you’re just a fool

    He knows that my love makes him rich like a king

    My love made you lucky even as a fool.

    Now you’re just a fool

    Just a fool 00h00h 0hh Just a fool 00h00h Just a fool.
