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: All in All
My number came up today
They're sending me across the Waves
I don't like the ocean, but I'm told that my emotions
Tend to lead me astray

Promise me you'll be my gal
You'll send a post just once in a while
You'll sleep beside my dirty clothing
Stay up every night just hoping I'll be okay
I'll make it but

All in all, it's all the still the same
I'm in love, you're not coming back to me
Hold me down, let the water run over all I've done
Till I'm back in your arms again

Hold the phone, you say I make no sense
Okay I'll back things up, I'm dropping all pretense
So let me start by saying, all I done with you
Was in the way of Self-defense

You see the world's been kind, oh but most times cruel
And I've lived long enough to know when I'm the fool
Baby if I'm going off to war I gotta know exactly
who I'm doing it for
So don't fake it

All in all, it's all the still the same
I'm in love, you're not coming back to me
Hold me down, let the water run over all I've done
Till I'm back in your arms again

Woah oh oh
I'm lonely love, lonely love
Let me know where you are
I'll go there no matter how far
I'll rise up from hell to your star
It must be love just because
It's the only thing I'm sure of

Do you remember when we stole the treasure chest?
Just you and me then, I like those times best
Would it matter baby if I said I die to go back there again
Would I pass your test?
Well girl I take what I can get cause...

All in all, it's all the still the same
I'm in love, you're not coming back to me
Hold me down, let the water run over all I've done
From the valley bold to the setting sun
Let the people see all that's meant to be
That I was right for you and you were right for me
Take me from the guns, and from the front
and back in your arms
Track Name: Yeah, Yeah, Yeah (Work To Do)
Baby don't look that way
I'm going to go but then I'm coming to stay
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I never know what to say
You make a sad face every time I go away
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hold the fort for the night
I'll be back tomorrow babe
They always keeping everybody
Off the phones for the night
But I got a call I gotta make
I gotta get the word out on the street

Baby don't lose your sleep
Every little bit it goes a long way
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tomorrow's another day
When the sun comes up it'll all be okay
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I always know when I'm right
There's a feeling in my stomach
And my hands get sweaty
Tonight's the night for me to strike
I'd love to take a holiday but
Baby don't you know I got
Work To Do...

Never ask my reasons why
I'm doing what I do, no matter what I try
But it keeps my mind occupied
The city is alive, the city is alive with
Work To Do...
Track Name: How Many Times
Come on baby let it all out now
All we hear about are selfish schemes
The dreams that don't work out
You can't keep down what’s underneath now
You may never get over
You may never get over
You may never get over it

How many times must I tell you you're the one?
I've made up my mind
Have my notebooks confiscated
Look at the lines
Strip my pages back to front
There’s nothing to find
There’s not much to say
Except nothing lasts forever

All your livelong on the railroad
And all that track you laid
Never paid for the years of the life you gave away
You broke your back on somebody else’s load
And you never get over
And you never get over
And you never get over it
You’re a little bit older
And a little bit older
And you're getting too old for this

How many times must I tell you you’re the one?
I've made up my mind
Don't matter what your friends are saying
Look at the sky at the stars and at the sun
There’s nothing to find
there's not much to say
except nothing lasts forever

Keep your baby keep it baby
Keep it till it drives you crazy
On and on and on and on is not enough for you
You don't know what you're missing
Till you stop look and listen
On and on and on and on it breaks my heart in two

But how many times? How many times?
I've mind up my mind, how many times?
How many times must I tell you you're e the one I've made up my mind
How many times must I tell you you're the one
I've made up mind
Track Name: Musta Been Somebody Else
I been listening for your footsteps at my door
I've done this kind of thing a thousand times or more
And after every time I tell myself it's over cause it
Doesn't feel right, it wasn't that funny but we
Laughed all night just like we been buddies
But what about before?
That musta been somebody else

My head is filling up with every kind of dream
A couple buckets I'll be bursting at the seams
So can't you tell me something certain
Something more than just it
Doesn't feel right, I know I'm not funny but you
Laughed all night, just like we been be buddies
But what about before?
You musta been somebody else

Hold on to your love
Cause that's what got you here
Cause that's what makes you tough
Hold on with your gloves
We got a hot one here
I didn't make this up

I been watching children play all afternoon
And I gotta say there are things I never thought I do
Like trip a little kid just to watch him fall
You know it doesn't look right, I know it's not funny but they
Laugh all night, so much for your buddies
And what about before
They must have been somebody else

The sickness comes and goes and keeps me in my bed
A fatal flower grows from deep inside my head
A single sniff and I go back to every single time it
Felt so right when it felt so funny it was
Strange and light like a feather on your tummy
When I think about before
I wish I'd been somebody else
Track Name: Glad It's Over Now
Complications can’t you see what the problem is
Now even strangers say I’m out of my head
You asked for love I gave you plastic explosives instead

Tie me up and tie me down
Glad it’s over now
Glad to see you're still around
Glad it’s over now
All the problems came and went
They came and went away
Long gone to stay

Come on sister don't you listen to troubled dreams?
Back home I used to care what everyone thought
My whole perspective changed the day I was finally caught

Tie me up and tie me down
Glad it’s over now
Glad to see you're still around
I'm just glad it’s over now
All the bedrooms came and went
Each night was spent
Just holding on to the covers so tight
Keeping both ears out for the bumps in the night
Going chick-chick-boom
Pretty soon we would find something out
But what about

Boom boom she boom boom boom she boom she boom bu bu boom boom boom

Line em’ up and knock em’ down
Can't you see it’s over now
Time to go has come around
Don't you see it’s over now
All (something something) Simon says
And Simon says:
Step up to the edge
Keep your hands at your side
Now just walk straight ahead
With your arms open wide
Put the pieces down think I found
What we both figured out
Let’s cut it out
Track Name: Sugar and Spice
Wake up, slow down....
Keep up the good sound
Look up and look around
You rock like sugar and spice
Notice the finer things
Not everybody gets a diamond ring
But everybody gets something
You rock like sugar and spice

I don't know but I've been told
Love is silver, love is gold
Love is all you need to use to buy your freedom
I just wrapped up another day
I'm headed back for the subway
No matter what they say
I don't believe, I don't believe it

Wake up, slow down…
Keep up the good sound
look up and look around.
You rock like sugar and spice.
Notice the finer things
Not everybody going to get your diamond ring
But everybody gets something
You rock like sugar

Please know what I'm going through
I don't wanna spend my life in solitude, it’s so long
But I wish upon a movie star
I wonder baby where you are
Alone above the world so high
Alone in love I don't believe in

Wake up, slow down.....
but keep up the good sound
look up and look around
You rock like sugar and spice
Please know what I'm going through
I don't wanna spend my life in solitude, it’s so long
But I wish upon a movie star
I wonder baby where you are
Alone above the world so high
Alone in love I don't believe in love
I don't believe in love
