about

You can probably imagine the record-biz conversation going something like "Get me the next Dave Matthews or John Mayer, and lose the jazzy crap!" Even though that might be the kind of strategy employed in marketing Israel Gonzales to the masses, it seems unfair to accuse the Singer/Songwriter of cynically constructing his sound in such a manner. Sure, he's probably enamored with Matthews and Mayer; he even sounds earnest enough to admit it. But he seems to come by his approach honestly.

"Suddenly" showcases the kind of highly rhythmic acoustic guitar work and catchy melodies that has become a Israel Gonzales trademark. On "Tonguetied" he repeats "I get Tonguetied,trying to describe all the crazy times,that ive had with you..and Ive spent days and nights,only just to find..i'm at a loss for words to say about you.." displaying the kind of smart-quiet-kid aura that lies not only at the heart of his aesthetic but,of his appeal as well.

"Suddenly" is a collection of songs that Gonzales has written over the last few years. Songs of Hope,Love and Loss are what makes "Suddenly" a project worth lending an ear to..So..

Roll your windows down, turn the radio up and please enjoy "Suddenly"!

Track Name: "Suddenly"
Storm clouds moving over head
I think the weather man was wrong
It's pouring raining cats and dogs
will I make it home
to you?

Traffic jams' not helpin'
and I think the gas light is on
Girl Id do it all again
Just to make it home
to you (cuz)

*Suddenly my day is brighter
when your around
Suddenly im feeling lighter
im floating off the ground
with you

Everything I do
without you
just seems the same to me
the sky stays Blue
and the grass stays Green

It didnt take us long
to see
that we could do anything
were free
turn the radio loud
so we can sing (that)

*Suddenly my day is brighter
when your around
Suddenly im feeling lighter
im floating off the ground
with you..

**and Suddenly my day is better
clearer weather
and Finally there's something special
with you girl here
with you..
Track Name: "Tonguetied"
The sunshine
always seems brighter
when the rains have stayed
longer than 3 days

and my dreams are
harder to recall
when they involve
the meaning of it all

But the words
they come so plain
trying to describe
the things we cant explain
places we cant see

but when it comes to you
your silly little grin
and the special things you do
i cant seem to find the words

I get Toungetied
trying to describe
all the crazy times
that ive had with you

and i've spent days and nights
only just to find
i'm at a loss for words
to say about you

and the flowers don't bloom
they never bloom too soon
before the Fall
takes them from us all

and the birds still fly
even though the sky
turns from day to night
they can always find the light

but when it comes to you
your silly little grin
and the special things you do
i cant seem to find the words

I get Toungetied
trying to describe
all the crazy times
that ive had with you

and Ive spent days and nights
only just to find
i'm at a loss for words
to say about you (2x)
Track Name: "Blue Sky"
Look into my eyes
what do you find inside of me?
Stare into my soul
I swear you'll find
Blue Skies

Give me one more chance
chance to find
the other side
of You

To open up the door
to find
who we really are

on my way
to find you

on your way
to find me

Lost in 7 days
in a haze
don't know how
to get out

I just stare into the sky
asking why
but,why not?

When im falling down
there you are
to help me up

Forever let me overflow
and spill over the sides
of my cup

on my way
to find you

on my way
to find me

We all change
so don't you rearrange
the stars in your sky
and dont you ever wonder why
when we fall down
we never touch the ground?
Track Name: "Outa My Head"
Tears
don't feel like they help
anymore

Days
don't seem the same as they did
before

And the words
I say just don't mean
anything

but I fall
for you every time
just the same

*I cant get you out
of my head
I still got you in my heart

I cant get you out
of my head
I just cant get over you

The pictures
on the wall I guess
Ill throw away

Cuz my phonecalls
you wont answer to
hear me say

That I need you
and I just
cant walk away

away from you girl
my life it just
wont be the same

*I cant get you out
of my head
I still got you in my heart

I cant get you out
of my head
I just cant get over you

**And I don't feel right
after a long day and nite
without you by my side
it just don't feel right

*Chorus
Track Name: "1000 More Times"
I'm here
on top of the world now
staring down at you
and you
look so small

and you know
that all of the tears that you've cried
wont bring me home
but you still leave the light on

If i could hold you now
i would fly so high
if i could hold you now
i would die
a thousand more times

so tell me
that you love me
and let me see your face
one look
is all i need

i see you
through the window
the moonlight on your face
but im here
and your there

If i could hold you now
i would fly so high
if i could hold you now
i would die
a thousand more times

If i could hold you now
i would fly so high
if i could hold you now
i would die
a thousand more....

Times at night
that i
spent with you
in the dark
the candle light in our eyes
and your smile
would paralyze
my soul inside
now i'm by your side
telling you...

If i could hold you now
i would fly so high
if i could hold you now
i would die
a thousand more times
Track Name: "SemiSweet"
I'm swimming through
a sea of faces
to get to you

but i'm drowning
so fast

so put me inside
inside your pocket
to spend the night

so I could sleep
to your heartbeat

and sleeping outside
well it's never seemed
quite as nice
than with you

and damn
it's starting to rain

and when the tears they stream
down your darling face
I die inside
cause angels should never cry

And how Semisweet
our lives
sometimes can be to me
but the candy coated kisses from you
take it all away

and dancing outside
well it's never seemed
quite as nice
than with you

and damn
it's starting to rain
Track Name: "Love and Science"
Pour it on
and write it down
cause pictures fade
and words can change

our lives can change

So don't you fall
Dizzy Girl
the lights are down
You take your bow
but no ones around
no one to be found

Ill sleep on your porch
until you come back home
200 degrees
or in the freezing cold
Ill sleep on your porch
until you come back home
until You're not alone

So Pour it on
and write it down
cause our lives will change
and every little thing
gets in the way
(and you don't know what there's left to say)

So don't you fall
Dizzy Girl
the lights are down
you take your bow
but no ones around
no one to be found

Ill sleep on your porch
until you come back home
200 degrees
or in the freezing cold
Ill sleep on your porch
until you come back home
until You're not alone

You're not alone.
Track Name: "Choices"
Im sorry but
Im drinking
Cause I cant stop
thinking
about how you chose
to go
the other way

Money and Diamonds
shouldn't come between us
but you told that
other fella OK

But im not OK
I don't like it this way
and all i can say (is)

Im in love with a girl
whose in love with the world
and im starting to see
she don't love me anymore

Baby I know
about your choices before
and how there's a chance
that you might come back home

Darling just see
That im all that you need
and the things that we see
will soon fade away

But im not OK
I don't like it this way
will she come home today?

Im in love with a girl
whose in love with the world
and im starting to see
she don't love me anymore

and are you starting to see
that im all that you need

and this world it will leave
you in pain and in grief
you in pain and in grief


Im in love with a girl
whose in love with the world
and she's starting to see
that she's loves me even more
