about

J:D is Julie Hill & Daniel Saa. Julie sings and writes the songs, and Daniel Saa produces, records, and plays all the instruments. They met through Berklee College of Music in 2009, but didn't start recording this album until 2013.

After finishing recording in Spring 2014, Daniel joined Los Amigos Invisibles (www.amigosinvisibles.com) as their lead guitarist. He continues to tour with them, while Julie pursues her career as a teacher, currently working with Global Music Institute in New Delhi, India (globalmusicinstitute.in).

The album art is a painting named "Drowned" by Daniel's friend Hermann Meija (www.hermannmejia.com). Hermann and Daniel met in Venezuela before Hermann moved to the US as an illustrator for MAD magazine.

lyrics

I want to take the plunge but know that I should not;
The waves I'd make would be too deep to swim through.
Oh, my sailor, you should run - if on my brine you could walk -
But if you could, I wouldn't have to flee you.

I daydream of soft and shallow waters,
Where I picture my thirst for you in motion,
But I know that I am my mother's daughter;
Life together would be a drop in the ocean.

Blue looks towards me, push me down into the deep end,
But none of your red letters will I wear.
You're just a fish in my sea, and I wish that I could pretend,
I don't know you, I don't even care...

But I daydream of soft and shallow waters,
Where I picture my thirst for you in motion,
But I know that I am my mother's daughter;
Life together would be a drop in the ocean.

I don't love you; I love him.
Please don't sink me;
Sailor let me swim,

Cause I daydream of soft and shallow waters,
Where I picture my thirst for you in motion,
But I know that I am my mother's daughter;
Life together would be a drop in the ocean.
