about

Julian Velard Brooklyn, New York

Julian Velard is songwriter, piano man, and native New Yorker. a biting 21st century wit in a stylish package—think Harry Connick, Jr. with the panache of a Brooklyn hipster—recalling Stephen Sondheim or Randy Newman at the peak of their talents.

His comedic timing and musical stylings have made him a regular on The Howard Stern Show and NPR’s Ask Me Another.

Track Name: Darker Shade Of Love
Sid, lemme tell you ’bout the thing that she did
How she tricked me into having a kid
How she tells me I’m her reason to live
Joe, I’m an advocate for taking it slow
But she’s got me by the back of my throat
And she’s pulling me as fast as I go
Wouldn't you know, couple of days go by I've got myself in a hole
I’m sinking so low, cause babe it’s a darker shade, a darker shade of love, of love

Stan, now I know that we has previous plans
And I hope to god that you understand
That she doesn't like me hanging with my man
Stu, tell me how I’m gonna make it up to you
Would you lemme walk a day in your shoes
Would you lemme take a break from these blues

Wouldn't you know, couple of days go by I've got myself in a hole
I’m sinking so low, cause babe it’s a darker shade, a darker shade of love, of love

Everyone knows where I been stuck lately
Everyone knows she’s having my baby
Everyone knows she’s got me under lock and key
Somebody set me free, somebody turn the key

Joe, lemme tell you couple things that I know
Lemme tell you couple things about Stu
He’s been staying home a lot with the Flu
He’s been saying I should kick it with Stan
But Stan tells me that he’s already got plans
And the worst thing just happened to Sid
No the worst thing just happened to Sid
Sid’s gonna have a kid!

Wouldn't you know, couple of years go by we've got ourselves in a hole
We’re sinking so low, cause babe it’s a darker shade, a darker shade of love,

Letting it go, cause baby sometimes you've got to know you’re not in control
You’re sinking so low, cause babe it’s a darker shade
A darker shade of love, of love, of love
Love, of love, of love
Love, la la luh li la li luh li la la luh la la luh
Track Name: None Of It Matters
How do you still live in your mother's house
If you can't stand each other?
How do you keep your lover's sacred vow
If you don't trust one another?
It took a long long time for me to figure it out
Pay attention..I'm about to break it down

Maybe you got your man, and maybe you got your plans
None of it really matter anyway
Whenever you try your best it ends up in a mess
But I'll be loving you just the same

How do you get through all the rainy days
Without your umbrella?
How do you take the ultra violet rays
Without getting the melanoma?
It took a long long time for me to figure it out
Pay attention..I'm about to break it down

Maybe you got your fans, maybe they understand
None of it really matters anyway
Whenever you try your best it ends up in a mess
But I'll be loving you just the same

There was a time when we were open
When the world was such a magic place
But now that magic spell has broken
And that's a fact you have to face
It's a cold and lonely place

It took a long long time for me to figure it out
Pay attention..I'm about to break it down

Maybe you get your chance to do that special dance
None of it really matters anyway
Whenever you try your best it ends up in a mess
And I'l be loving you just the same

Maybe you got your man, I doubt he understands you
What does it really matter anyway
Whenever you try your best
You're gonna make a great big mess
And I'll be loving you just the same
Track Name: Kids
Careful when they say to you
One and one and one is two
The people here they like to
Play around with you for fun
Don’t let em get you down

For a moment make believe
Everyone is who they seem
And everything that we could never
Find was lying around
We never thought to look
Behind the couch when that was all it took

Kids are bound to fool around
Please don’t let em’ get you down
Right when I made the grade
My parents came and saved the day

Ladies first is often said
Ladies gotten used to it
But I was never one to finish
Last in place my past
Is often overlooked
It happened so fast
You've got to read the book

Kids are bound to fool around
Please don’t let em’ get you down
Right when I made the grade
My parents came and took me away

And your proud face was gone
I had to carry on
I didn't know right from wrong
I didn't know

Kids are bound to fool around
Please don’t let em’ get you down
Right when I made the grade
My parents came and saved the day
When all I wanted them to say was
What’s wrong?
What’s wrong?
Track Name: Everyone Knows
Everyone knows it's you
Tell me it isn't true
Call me a liar, set me on fire, tell me I'm wrong
Everyone knows it's you
Wa woo wa woo
What are we supposed to do
If everyone knows it you?

Everyone's had enough
Of all the romantic stuff
Call me a sinner, a lonely beginner
At the start of the game

If everyone's had enough
Where does that leave us?
if everyone's had enough
Of all of those late nights nights trying to
Keep from crying you have to see our flame is dying
We did our best to pass the test and get the weight up off our chest
It's the burden that burns
Talking about it only makes it worse

Everyone's on their own
With no direction home
Point the finger and make me the singer of my favorite band
If everyone 's on their own
And everyone hates being alone
Why are we on our own?
Can somebody stay for a little while?
Somebody who makes me laugh and smile
Somebody who waits for that perfect moment to say
What we always hope in our heart is true
Everyone knows that you
Now what are we supposed to do?

Woo woo woo...
Track Name: Didn't Have To Take It That Way
City's looking like rain throughout the evening
I ain't leaving the house without a coat
I'm in need of some time to keep my mind afloat
Take a trip to the corner for some cigarettes
Take a sip of some whiskey along the way
Take a bit of this rain to wash my trouble away
I really thought that we were doing okay
You know you didn't have to take it that way

Buy a ticket for one to see the cinema
Pick up some popcorn and peanut M&Ms
And when the movie is done I stay and watch it again
Out in the street all the stores got gates in front of them
And every window got a beautiful display
I wanna break through the gates
I'm gonna find a way
I really thought that we were doing okay
You know you didn't have to take it that way

Couple nights all alone she went ahead, changed the locks on me
Couple days on her own she got a guy, looks a lot like me
But that's the way that it goes
The story everyone knows
Pretty soon I'm like all the other runaways
Find food with my nose, ruined all my good clothes
I should have known I should have known we gonna end up this way

And in the end the storm drowns the city
The lightning strikes too many miles away
The thunder finally arrives, he's got nothing to say
I really thought that we were doing okay
You know you didn't have to take it that way
I didn't know what to say, I's only trying a play, I didn't know
You know you didn't have to take it that way
