Toni Land - Sunlit

CD – Sunlit

$15.00Add to cart

There couldn’t be a more appropriate title for Pacific Northwest singer-songwriter, Toni Land’s, brand new album…

SUNLIT is bright and exposed, strong and warm, dazzling and natural, and damn it makes you feel good.

From the declarative lines of the opening kicker, NEW GIRL (“I don’t need you to need me to make me whole…”), through the rolling echoes of the heartsick, closing track, ROADBLOCK (“It’ll feel real, but you’ll know the truth. It’s another stop, another roadblock. Everywhere I go…”), we can only buckle up and ride shotgun as Toni guns it down a ten-song, heart and soul highway of emotional wilds.

And get ready to sing along, loud and proud, because SUNLIT’s loaded, top to bottom, with the kind of beautiful, fun, hooky songs that you always cross your fingers and hope for when you press play on something new.

Right now, with the addition of SUNLIT into her catalog of brilliant work, Toni Land is casting a long, tall, artistic shadow over the horizon. This is music with a definite point of view from an artist who, album to album, just keeps on reinventing herself and getting better and better, bolder and bolder.

    Hey What’s Your Game? (T. Land 2020)

     

    Verse 1

    you act like you’re my friend

    you like the way I am

    play up your feminine side

    so sly

    I think you bought a book

    On what and how to cook

    you won me over like this

    before a kiss

     

    chorus

    Hey hey what’s your game anyway hey hey

    Is this just a trend in the world of men

    when they’re better than a girlfriend

     

    you’re so modern now

    now you’re bleaching towels

    ironing all our clothes, switching our roles

    you tell me how you feel

    like it’s no big deal

    sing to me every night

    oh so clever (lift into chorus)

     

    chorus

    Hey hey what’s your game anyway hey hey

    Is this just a trend in the world of men

    when they’re better than a girlfriend

     

    recitation

    When guys were tougher things were’t perfect

    but at least I knew what to expect, yea

    I guess I felt more secure in a weird kind of way

    so here you are like a dream

    or maybe a scheme

    I’m not sure

     

    1/2verse

    I hardly see the ground

    I hardly feel down

    I hardly ever know

    What’s up

     

    chorus

    Hey hey what’s your game anyway hey hey

    Is this just a trend in the world of men

    when they’re better than a girlfriend

    Hey hey what’s your game anyway hey hey

    Is this just a trend in the world of men

    when you’re better than (break)

    a girlfriend

    Now I am Barbie with a Ken

    My pretty’s prettier

    You like me better than I do

     

    My hot is sexier the more you think it’s true

    Cuz you’re in love with me, me with you

    I’m kinda like the little train that could

    Nothing can stop me I feel so good

    My easy’s easier

    I think I’m better than I am

     

    You like me more when I’m au naturel

    You tell me that it always rings your bell

    My fancy’s fancy free

    Don’t gotta a care in the world

     

    You love me love me not

    You love me love me not

    And when you love me

    I say HIP HIP HURRAY!

     

    My friends say watch out you could be hit blindside,

    but there’s no trouble in sight that we can’t make right as rain

     

    I got more pep, get up and go

    Spend all my time heel and toe

    My springy’s springier

    You got me feelin’ this way

     

    You love me love me not

    You love me love me not

    And when you love me

    You love me love me not

    You love me love me not

    And when you love me, when you love me, when you love me

    Verse 4

    Might run outta luck get stuck, might get hard

    Roadblock (T. Land©2020)

     

    verse 1

    I traveled East I traveled West

    always on the move

    but when I dream that I’m ahead

    another stop another road block

     

    verse 2

    I tried to stake my claim on hope

    for fortune and fame

    Only to find, the game is rigged

    another stop another road block

     

    chorus

    The wait and the toll

    The searching for gold

    The begging the gods

    The beating the odds

    an endless con with another stop, another road block

     

    verse 3

    Take me now before I leave

    on a homeless caravan

    Grinding gears far away

    another stop another road block

     

    chorus

    The wait and the toll

    The searching for gold

    The begging the gods

    The beating the odds

    an endless con another stop, another road block

     

    bridge

    You are the quiet I require

    keep me comin’ miles and miles

     

    verse

    when I come back and show up late

    swear you are the cure

    it’ll feel real, but you know the truth

    It’s another stop another road block

    everywhere I go

    another stop another road block

    Sweetheart (T. Land 2018)

     

    I look into your face and see someone I can hurt

    Someone I could take down, lay low as dirt

    I was trained by the best

    I could break your heart

    Sweetheart

     

    I look into the mirror  see another lonely face

    One who lost too much who quit the race

    Who gave up too soon

    I see it all now

    Sweetheart

     

    Maybe I’m not what you’re looking for

    Maybe you show me to the door

     

    But I’m gonna give you my love, then I’ll give you some more

    Sweetheart do do do do do

    Sweetheart do do do do do

     

    If this don’t turn out I’ll make myself right

    Even if I have to yell and scream all night

    Here is a moment

    to change history

    make a new you, make a new me

     

    Maybe I assume too much

    Maybe I’m not cool enough

    But I’m gonna give you my love, then I’ll give you some more

    Sweetheart do do do do

    Sweetheart do do do do

     

    I’m gonna give you my love

    give you my love

    Like a big’ ole fool I’ll give it all to you

    Sweetheart

    Sweetheart

    Sweetheart

    Do do do do do 4x

     

    But we could /change history

    Make a new you, /and make a new me

    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” (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
