about

Two households, both alike in artistry,
Reach across the web of the world
which births our scene.

Jon-Michael, an Leeni doth rose themselves from self apathy,
For new collaboration, yet unseen.

In the Lists of Craig, a Unity was found.
Fair Leeni of Seattle did but find herself unsatisfied, unfilled, uninspired. But from Pittsburgh a sound did come – sent by Good Jon-Michael.

The sound, while gentle, did resonate with Leeni. It was both compliment and counterpoint to the music that did swell within her.

A message did she send, back to the fair author of such dulcet tones! Good Jon-Michael most gladly accepted the missive and embraced it’s intent. Though distance and time separate them, they found a kinship in the Auld Tale, and took Romeo + Juliet as their name.

Now, a score and a half again of songs are testimony to success of the match.

Of those, 15 have been selected to go forth under the title “Month of May.” This first of many future offerings shall be prologue to a band that has an everlasting, creative passion for music.

Track Name: Get In Your Square
don’t ever to spit on it
you gotta stick with it
in the basic element
far far beneath the hint
get in your square
now say your prayer
make no mistake my friend
you cannot pretend
when you turn to other things
you’ll be hangin' on a string
Track Name: Another November
Another November come and gone
they go so fast my friend
we were strong until the end
Another December comes along
how days slip on by
Where were you, when that cold wind cried
Summers come and summers go
Winter's here, the cold wind blows
And you are like the changing wind
When it ends, it begins again
Another September comes again
this note I read from you
darling, my love is true
Another October once again, how do you feel
This time, i know it’s real
Another November come and gone,
they go so fast my friend
We were strong until the end
Track Name: The Acrobat
I'd like to see her on a tight rope very high
which way will she fall?
I'd like to witness falling down to the ground
gracefully taking her life
like she took mine
like she took mine
And when she hits the ground
will I smile or frown?
Track Name: True Love
You tie my hands
and watch me bleed
True love
they don't understand how good you are to me
they don't understand love has to bleed
Light up my life
and watch me burn
True Love
They don't understand how you can be
They don't understand love has to bleed
Track Name: Goozy
i’ll walk her down the street
when she wants to go
i’ll tell her i love her, when she wants to know
she is good and drunk and goozy, all the time
i will buy her favorite beer
I’ll spend a night in jail
I’ll tell her I’ll be true
everything will be (my love will never fail)
Track Name: Red & Black
Take this knife out of my back, it's turning black
Take this gun off of my head, it's turning red
Will you kill me dead
or kiss me instead
take me out or take me back
Make it red
Make it black
Take these snakes out of my bed, they're turning red
Make this heart attack, it's turning black
Will you kill me dead
or kiss me instead
take me out or take me back
Make it red
Make it black
Will you kill me dead
or kiss me instead
take me out or take me back
Make it red
Make it black
Track Name: Moon Was Full and Bright
Walkin’ down the street one day
she appeared like the month of may
there she was like a bed of flowers
I gave her all my powers
that was the greatest day
that’s when I heard her say
I’ll walk wherever you go
when you’re gone time moves way too slow
it all starts with a little stroll
then you look into my soul
I’ll see you later tonight
I hear the moon will be full and bright
Lookin’ back on that fateful day
on an on and on we played
we did so many things
as we danced to the joy love brings
I saw her later that night
oh that moon, was full and bright
Track Name: Man or Woman
I gotta man who don't know how to treat a girl, leaves me cryin' on the floor
I gotta man who won't know what he's losing til he sees me walkin' out the door
When you can't take no more and you're on the floor and you need a helping hand
I need a man who can handle me or a woman that can understand
Need a man who can handle her or a woman that can understand
I need a man who knows how to love a girl, knows just how to satisfy
I need a woman who knows what to say to me when I hang my head and cry
When you can't take no more and you're on the floor and you need a helping hand
I need a man who can handle me or a woman that can understand
Need a man who can handle her or a woman that can understand
Daddy, can you handle me? Momma can't you understand?
Brother, can you handle me? Oh, sister won't you take my hand?
Track Name: Life Will Never Be Simple
There’s no action in life, better or any worse
everything proves the mystery and the truth
There’s no better luck or position
if there’s something negative, you will learn
if there’s something positive, you will enjoy it
there’s nothing to strive for, it seems
you might have weaknesses, but they too give you strength
life will never be simple
Track Name: Pretty Girl
I can see you have been there before
Cause there are things that only we can tolerate no more
I can tell you know well this world can be lonely
But when you smile, you're a light that shines on everything
Pretty Girl, let the world shine on you
I can sense your defense, put your guard down
Cause I am near, let me hear and I won't make a sound
Pretty Girl, let the world hear you sing
And when you smile, you're a light that shines on everything
Track Name: Root Beer Man
I passed out yesterday
comin’ back home
dyin’ everyday
sleepin’ all alone
I was the root beer man last year
I was the root beer man
with three feet on the wall
and one in my bed
there’s a cat outside
wonderin’ if you’re dead
Track Name: Wondergirl
spoken: We need you wondergirl, where are you?
Wondergirl (danger)
Wondergirl (faster, faster)
Wondergirl (kill, kill)
Wondergirl (faster, faster)
Underestimate and you'll surely die
the girl is danger, kiss your life goodbye
Turn around and she'll be right behind
Wondergirl (danger)
Wondergirl (faster, faster)
Wondergirl (kill, kill)
Wondergirl (faster, faster)
Nothing to live for not afraid to die
spoken: We need you wondergirl, where are you?
Wondergirl
spoken: We need you wondergirl, where are you?
Track Name: Live in the Light
And I wanna go
And I wanna stay
I want to live in the light and grow old most everyday
And that’s the way, I live in the light
Don’t you wanna go
Don’t you wanna stay
Don’t you live in the light and grow old, most every day
And that’s the way...you live in the light
And I wanna go
And I wanna stay
Everyday something goes wrong,
something brightens my day
That’s the way....I live in the light
Track Name: Skeleton Bride
Skeleton Bride where is your veil? It was found down a wishing well
The towers ring the funeral bell cause we know you're life's a living hell
Yes, we know your life's a living hell
Before and evermore
Skeleton Bride where is your heart? Did you lose it when you fell apart?
Skeleton Bride all dressed in white, you climbed underground to say goodnight
Closed the door
Forevermore
Skeleton Bride, where did you go?
All we see is a pile of bones.
Track Name: Mr. & Mrs. Brown
Love, won't you take a walk with me through the cemetery?
Love, won't you lie down with me in the statuary?
Come drink some wine with me underneath the old oak tree
We'll pour the rest into the ground
for Mr. & Mrs. Brown
for Mr. & Mrs. Brown
Flowers are blooming here
grown from rain and widow's tears
You put one behind my ear
This is where we will spend our years
this is where we will spend our years
Come and have a cry with me
beneath the old oak tree
tears fall into the ground
For Mr. & Mrs. Brown
For Mr. & Mrs. Brown
Ain't nobody ever want to live with me
sitting all alone 'neath the old oak tree
