    This is MJoy's debut solo album, encased in an eco-wallet. When playing live, majority of the time, MJoy is solo & acoustic. But when she writes, she hears a full band in her head. This perfectly balanced joy-inducing pop-rock is the product of 2 heads being better than 1. Producer Justin Vanegas, who has known MJoy since the early college days, heard some stuff in his head too while recording this album. And here you have it! It's kinda like 2 friends made a musical baby. We are proud parents. Let us show off this unicorn to you!

Track Name: Does Everybody Like You?
Riding that worry train over and over again
Could make you feel so insane but it’s normal it’s normal instead
I’ve been wondering what they’re thinking
Even when it’s not worth listening

How do you like me now?
‘Cause I want you to do it someway somehow
The truth is all along
Thank if everybody likes you
You must be doing something wrong

Well I can’t hold back now
After taking them taking them blows
Could really use my friends now
And all of them all of them know
All i’ll ever need are my boundaries
you don’t like that, I’m not sorry

How do you like me now?
‘Cause I want you to do it someway somehow
The truth is all along
Thank if everybody likes you
You must be doing something wrong

Don’t get me wrong I want to please
But don’t get me wrong, not just to appease you

How do you like me now?
‘Cause I want you to do it someway somehow
The truth is all along
Thank if everybody likes you
You must be doing something wrong

I’ve been wondering what they’re thinking
Even when it’s not worth listening
All i’ll ever need are my boundaries
you don’t like that, I’m not sorry
Track Name: Time To Be Alive
When your decides to stand up and not fall
When you finally hear the talking amongst the walls
That’s how you know you’re untouchable
Yeah you just got to know

When you see the S-L-U-T sewen accross your chest
When a suit can tell te world that he knows best
It’s ain’t written in stone, gotta reclaim your throne
Yeah you just got to know

What a time to love you
What a time to be alive
I don’t know, I just want to be with you
What a time for struggle
And now it’s time to get it right
All I know is, I just wanna be with you

Now in your class I did the math alright
Just to get by I had to study your stuff all night
You must think this is fun
But i’m so done staring at your door
I’m not the only one
You only call me when the sun goes down at night
As if the dark keeps me from knowing that you cry
You must think that I’m dumb
But I’m the only one that knows

What a time to love you
What a time to be alive
I don’t know, I just want to be with you
What a time for struggle
And now it’s time to get it right
All I know is, I just wanna be with you

And I wait
Oh I wait
And I wait oh
It’s too late
It’s too late
Dont you wanna get up out this city where all the
People make love look easy
Yeah you all make love look easy
But I know one thing
I know one thing

What a time to love you
What a time to be alive
I don’t know, I just want to be with you
What a time for struggle
This time we’re gonna get it right
All I know is, I just wanna be with you
Track Name: Call It A Unicorn
It's so late I can't sleep
I need something to hold me deep
Lay my head on the sheet
hear my chest, feel my feet

Tell me a secret I will wish I had known
Hindsight's 20/20, Gimmie a back bone
I wanna be perfect for all of you
I have all the answers but I haven't got a clue

It might be a lie that I say
To myself everyday
Reminding that I'll be ok
No matter what keep showing up

Something is out there much bigger than me
I can feel it on the inside, I feel it beneath
And you can call it a unicorn, you can call it the sea
But I swear you can see it if you need to believe

It might be a lie that I say
To myself everyday
Reminding that I'll be ok
No matter what keep showing up
Oooh

i'll tell you a secret
Sometimes i get scared,
All i do is my best
is that enough for today?
I'm held by something that makes sense to me
So i'll keep on keeping on 'cause i need to believe

It might be a lie that I say
To myself everyday
Reminding that I'll be ok
No matter what keep showing up
Oooh
Track Name: The Hard Part
Caught up with you in a voicemail
I hope that you know I do so well
I wonder what you are avoiding
Won’t you call me back, it’s annoying

‘Cause I love you so much I can’t get you out my heart
And I’m not going anywhere
This is the hard part for both of us
We avoid good love
The jokes on us again

I Like and i Like and I poke back
And I make you laugh with a hashtag
But it is time to say “i’m sorry” face to face
What’s with this modern day last chance
And I’ve been hurt before so I stopped keeping score
‘Cause what else to want more than my friend back?

‘Cause I love you so much I can’t get you out my heart
And I’m not going anywhere
This is the hard part for most of us
We don’t trust true love
Yeah the joke’s on us
We put on pedestals the ones that just
Weren’t available
So here’s to making plans
Like a real friend

Always gonna love my baby
Enamored there’s no room for shame here
Just get out your own way
You’ll see that she will stay
You take it day by day like you’re meant to

‘Cause I love her so much i can’t get her out my heart
And I’m not going anywhere
Track Name: Get Naked
Look at me sitting around watching TV
At 3pm on a tuesday
And suddenly I get an urge and I wanna break free
Tell me how I can do that

Every once in a while I get a little frustrated
My nerves build up, I’m still infatuated
While I’m singing this song, here’s what I want you to do
Take off your shirt and I’m gonna do the same thing too

I know you wanna get naked, yeah!
I know you wanna have your back side showin’ ‘cause you don’t care
I know you wanna get naked, yeah!
In front of everybody that you’re knowin’ showin’ every last hair
‘Cause you don’t care

My sexuality is undoubtedly healthy and I’m not afraid to express it
So just look at me Like a bitch or a slut
Whatever you call it
I’m trying to get free, Gotta respect it

Sometimes I feel just a little bit silly
Whenever I’m alone I want somebody to feel me
Although everybody’s here I know what we can do
They’ll all squint and stare
But then they’re gonna wanna do the same thing too

I know you wanna get naked, yeah!
I know you wanna have your back side showin’ ‘cause you don’t care
I know you wanna get naked, yeah!
In front of everybody that you’re knowin’ showin’ every last hair
‘Cause you don’t care

The breeze kisses my skin
I get feelings where do I begin
It’s hot in here, can you feel it?
If i could only shed some layers
Show off my bod walking down those stairs
Tell ‘em all to join
Or they can beat it
Every once in a while
I get a little bit lonely
But I know one thing that can really console me
And I think y’all know exactly what I mean
Since I feel so comfy inside of my skin

You know I wanna get naked, yeah!
You know i wanna have my back side showin’ ‘cause i don’t care
You know i wanna get naked, yeah!
In front of everybody that I’m knowin’ showin’ every last hair
‘Cause I don’t care
Yeah
Track Name: Believe It
My heart is pure
You are the cure
so When tension sores
Why do I fake it?

Well never again
Will I imagine the end
'Cause my heart is yours
For the taking
So just take it

'Cause I want all
your love
And I need all
your love
Can I have all
your love?
And i want us to
Believe it

Friends talk about
How they want what we got
But sometimes I'm not
Givin' it easy...
But i've just come to learn
The reason I yearn
I left myself hungry at the table
Sometimes feelings don't fit their labels, it's

All your love
Can I have
All your love
'Cause I want
All your love
And I want us to
Believe it
want us to believe in it

All my love
Don't you want
All my love
‘Cause I got
All this love
And I want us to
Believe it
I believe
Track Name: Tal Vez
Dum dum dum dum dum...

Amigas nada mas , nada mas, nada mas que eso
Amigas nada mas , nada mas, nada mas, no mas otro beso Oh,
Y si yo te quiero a ti
Y si tengo sentimientos asi
Entonces no se lo que voy hacer

Amigas nada mas , nada mas, nada mas que eso
Amigas nada mas , nada mas, no mas otro beso Oh,
Y si tu me quieres a mi
Y si tienes sentimientos asi
Por que no sabes lo que vas hacer

Ooh..

Y si yo te quiero a ti
Y si tienes sentimientos asi
Por que no sabes lo que vas hacer?

Y algun dia te vere te vere te vere como antes
Pero hoy yo surire sin hablarte pa’ callarme
Otra vez
Y si nos queremos tanto
Mas complejo que negro y blanco
Tal vez algun dia sabremos que hacer
Dime cuando sepamos lo que hacer
Tal vez
Tal vez

Algun dia tal vez

Ooh

Dum dum dum dum dum...
Track Name: Nothing Says It Better
Soap dishes the only kind that are in my kitchen so I can’t eat off these plates
And i’m still wishin’ that i was a magician and I’d serve you something clean to taste
Well my sincere apologies my kitchen has limited seasoning
Or maybe this all seems limited to you
Might i make a suggestion
Your cupboards could use some dusting and I think you’d probably find a helpful root or two
A root or two

Nothing says it better than your accelerator
How you sped away from me
But maybe when we get older we’ll see how we were colder & you’ll
Warm back up to me
I just can’t wait ‘til we’re ready to be free

I love your brain, your brain is so big
You can power a lighthouse and find a lost twig but
When that light is aimed at me
I start to feel just a little unsure of myself
Start to feel like I should act like somebody else
And then there i am making myself the enemy
The enemy
I really don’t want to fight you, I just wanna make it right
So tell me who else baby, is loving you like this?
Didn’t think our last would look like that it was a kiss with only half the heart in it
But i hold onto the good times not the diss
No not the diss

Nothing says it better than your accelerator
How you sped away from me
But maybe when we get older we’ll see how we were colder & you’ll
Warm back up to me
I just can’t wait ‘til we’re ready to be free

Your fear is showing slightly, yeah you seem so ready to fight me
But the next time you get love don’t speed away

Nothing says it better than your accelerator
How you sped away from me
But maybe when we get older we’ll see how we were colder & you’ll
Warm back up to me
I just can’t wait ‘til we’re ready to be free
And they’ll say how we sped away...
Track Name: What Did I Do?
Life’s too short to hold a grudge on you
Life’s too long to not smell roses at least a few
But when I want to change you
What did I do?
Said when I want to blame you, ask myself
What did I do?

You are too nice
To talk to me that way
I already know the nature of our thing
‘Cause when I want to blame you
What did I do?
Said when I want to change you
Ask myself what did I do?

There’s no way to argue nicely
Or neatly just the same
Somewhere we get lost, it’s so elementary
We all need somebody to blame

You are too nice
To talk to me that way
Life is too short to not talk about these things
‘Cause when I want to change you
Ask myself what did I do?
Said when I want to blame you, ask myself
What did I do?
What did I do?

Life is too short to not talk about these things
Track Name: Passion Out
Talk myself, talk myself out of it
The thing I love
Procrastinate as I talk all about it
When I say I do then don’t
I’m only foolin’ me
When I say I will then won’t
I’m only foolin’ me

It’s like talking the passion
Out of me
t’s like chasing the passion
Out of me
I wonder why a part of me will agree
It’s like talking the passion out

Work before, work before we play around
Give me a break
I deserve something just for being loud
That’s what I think
When I say I do then don’t
I’m only foolin’ me
When I say I will then won’t
I’m only foolin’ me

It’s like talking the passion
Out of me
t’s like chasing the passion
Out of me
I wonder why a part of me will agree
It’s like talking the passion out

I hear many of us having conversations
We say things just like
“We’ve got a gift inside!”
We say things just like
“We’ve got a gift inside!”
At the bottom of the hill when am I gonna climb?
I’m promising myself different this time

No more talking the passion
Out of me
No more chasing the passion
Out of me
I’ll be puttin’ the work in deliberately
No more talking the passion out
Track Name: Hott Mess
Every time I look back a year
There’s a hott mess
What will I say this time next year?
Let me guess

Coming down now with my blood feeling hotter than hell
In spite of myself, just wanna be cool.
What can I do now with this teenager inside of myself
Who’d love to beat you up after school?
But she would never do it.
Quiet down now, as a kid it was wrong to be mad
So I go to sad easy
But i’m learning this is just a part of all of ourselves
I’m trying to get glad to be angry
When will I ever do it?

Every time I look back a year
There’s a hott mess
What will I say this time next year?
Let me guess
Every time I look back a year
There’s progress
What will I say this time next year?
Let me guess

Check the calendar
Which part is a blur?
Did it all work out?
Are you holding onto something for another year from now?

Every time I look back a year
There’s a hott mess
What will I say this time next year?
Let me guess
Check the calendar
Which part is a blur?
Did it all work out?
Did it all work out?
Track Name: One Day At A Time
Don’t fool yourself, coulda been with someone else
But you chose me ‘cause there are parts of you
That you wanted to see more clearly
And don’t talk to me like I’m dumb
Or the enemy
‘Cause you were the only one that set me free to fly
You were the only one that set my wings on fire!

And I don’t have you figured out in fact
I’m the furthest person from achieving that
But you play a big part in that

Always moving so fast
Where you trying to go?
“Just keep up if you can”
What’s wrong with walking slow?

One day at a time
One day at a time
One day at a time
One day at a time

Don’t give all your power to me
You need to own how you bought these sheets
And you laid them on a bed you made
It’s big enough for two but
It’s still your room

And you say that you don’t believe in fate
But I knew your name before I knew your face
How else do you explain?

Always moving so fast
Where you trying to go?
“Just keep up if you can”
What’s wrong with walking slow?

One day at a time
One day at a time
One day at a time
One day at a time

And you say that you don’t believe in fate
But I knew your name before I knew your face
How else do you explain?
Track Name: The Spark
Something else has caught my eye
I think I may have found some life
on another planet
on another planet.
No one's ever asked me why
I'm thinkin' I could probably die
on another planet
on another planet.

But how great would it be?
Joyous happy free?

Friends'll come and friends will go
my grieving you will never know
on the other planet
on the other planet.
Lookin' just to get my fix
broken until proven fixed
on the other planet
It'll fix me

Why should I believe
It's good enough to be right here with me?
it's weird to hear the news
Do they still write the blues?

Something's really got to give
i'm guessing we'll just probly live
on another planet
on another planet?
What about our problems here?
Will I be able to see more clear
on the other planet
Will it fix me?

We've come so far to say
Escape escape escape
But what about your heart?
Do you let it light the spark?

It'll fix me (4 x's)
And how great would it be?
Joyous happy free?
