about

Andre Hill Los Angeles, California

Andre Hill is a singer-songwriter with a sense of truth that will hit you right in the gut. Whether he is singing about the experience of a relationship falling into decay as he does with "Pink/Blue" or imagining himself as one of the victims of the Sept. 11th attacks in his song "Free", Andre's voice is that of a generation lost yet hopeful, led by the romance of life. ... more

Track Name: Free
Don't write me a letter
It just won't show up in time
I could've lived life better
But by now, it's auld lang syne
Well, I spent my day and nights
Climbing through machinery
But this morning a steel bird
Flew its nose into me
Yes, this morning a steel bird
Flew its nose into me

I've got a nosebleed office
And a mortgage back at home
I've got a friend whose eyes went dead
Just a minute ago
And I've got a wife who makes my life
My true and honest love
I hope someone tells the boy in her belly
Who his daddy was
I hope someone tells the boy in her belly
Who his daddy was

I could get angry
I could go crazy
But I can't run away
You can take my body but my soul is flying free

Years and years and years
And the sum of it is here
Close my eyes and hold on tight
And drop just like a tear
No one ever told me how to
Be a human being
But if I did something right I'll drop
Into a memory
Yeah, if I did something right I'll drop
Into a memory

I could get angry
I could go crazy
But I can't run away
You can take my body but my sould is flying free
Track Name: Paper Planes
Weren't we just playing with Legos
Calling each other names
Falling down into the sandbox
Weren't we just pointing at rainbows
Piloting paper planes
Simon says dive off the boondocks
Look, I bet I can lift up your friend
Again, again
I can't wait 'til I become a man
A man, a man

Weren't we just toying with Play-Doh
Pizza and lemonade
Digging a hole back to China
Weren't we just listening to radio
Stratosphere polonaise
Catapult me to Hawaii-a
Chase me as fast as you can
You can't, you can
I can't wait 'til I become a man
A man, a man

I'll close my eyes and count to ten
Again, again
When I open up, I'll be a man
A man, a man
Track Name: Pink/Blue
I heard the ringing yet again
I heard the car horn blare and shaking up the windows
The party we could not attend
RSVP and always bringing our ghosts in tow
Falling down into the pool
They haven't cleaned that thing in years
Turning brown
A yo-yo string attached to all our past fears

I've seen this film a thousand times
It isn't any better than when I walked out before
The lady's still leaving the man
There's broken hearts and heroes
Fighting and slamming doors
Circle song
A melody we both keep singing until we're through
Days grow long
The play is over, but we both still missed our cue

You turned pink, while I turned blue
You turned pink, while I turned blue
Nothing left to do

You could have written me a tune
It's the least that I, myself, thought to do for you
You could have really said goodbye
I'm falling over myself trying to get back to you
Torn and trounced
I'm sick of playing this game where rules change everyday
Left aground
I'm trying to fly, but this'll be the grave where we lay

You turned pink, while I turned blue
You turned pink, while I turned blue
Nothing left to do

And I guess it's over, it's over like that
