about

Tai Shan has just released her new CD Tiny Planet. The music is a sensitive, polished, collection of Tai Shan’s original songs woven with lush sounds of her rich soprano voice. Her lyrics combine with acoustic guitar, organ, cello, bass and drums to create her bolero, country, and jazz-infused tunes. The lyrical content of the songs range from evolution to
alcoholism, with wide sweeping melodies.

“Tiny Planet,” the title track of the CD, is a song about the sea and its interconnection with the evolution of mankind. Proceeds from the online sales of this song will be donated to Seattle’s People for Puget Sound, an environmental, non-profit group dedicated to the restoration of the Puget.

Track Name: Looking Down
Verse:
Leave your worries, leave your woes
You won’t need them where were going to go
We’re going to climb to the top of a Mountain
Forget your money, forget your dues
grab your car keys and your hiking shoes
We’re going to climb to the top of a Mountain

Chorus:
Looking Down you can close your eyes
under beautiful skies
you can’t hide beneath these skies looking down from the mountain

Verse:
Theirs no hurry take your time
feel the hush and honey you find
there is a rhythm when you climb up the mountain
Bring some water, bring some food
its just going to be me and you
Were going to climb to the top of the mountain

Chorus:
Looking down you can open your eyes
under beautiful skies
Their is nothing to hide beneath these skies looking down from the mountain
Track Name: Crickets in the Dark
Verse:
In the moonlight, starlight tangled up in midnight
Rustle like a leaf on a tree
Come along, get lost with me
You were run down, pushed out, nothing you could talk about
Chomping like a horse on a bit
Chewing the smoke that rose from your cigarette

Chorus:
Come along, come along, come along get lost with me
Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark

Verse:
Through the rambles and the brambles of the blackberry vines
growing the the heat of the dark
Your going to lose your ambition for nothing less than living
oh it feels so nice
I will listen as you ramble by the rhythm of your step
As you walk through the city by the glow
As we watch humans live through these window

Chorus:
Come along, Come along, Come along get lost with me
Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark
We are going to live by the rhythm of the crickets in the dark

Bridge
In deep down dark
Can you hear them in the dark
Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark
We are going to live by the rhythm of the crickets in the dark


Barefoot, Cantaloupe, California wine
Feel the mud just a sneaking through your toes
As you lay in the grass and watch it grow
Road maps, street signs, constellations of your life
let go of the destination known
Come along get lost with me

Chorus:
Come along, Come along, Come along get lost with me
Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark
We are going to live by the rhythm of the crickets in the dark
Track Name: Flooded Wonder
It started when you were just a little child inside of you
and it just grew

Verse:
Trembling like thunder, showering like rain
A booming voice that you just can’t explain
As you wonder, you discover you change
You can’t ignore it, can’t let it go
The more you learn the faster the waters grow
flooded wonder

Chorus:
Stop do you hear that sound
Its just your heart rumbling
Stop do you hear that sound its just my mind flooding
The waters are rising

Verse:
Where your going I’d never guess
The waters swirl with trouble and promise
Stay afloat or find a boat and you’ll be fine
It’s your fate yeah you might as well
Open the flood gates let your mind swell
with flooded wonder

Chorus:
Stop do you hear that sound
Its just your heart rumbling
Stop do you hear that sound its just my mind flooding
The waters are rising
Track Name: Can't Find The Man I Knew
I can smell it
its sticking in the air
I can feel it
like a ghost thats standing their

Holding your shoulder
pulling you closer
taking the man I used to love
Till I can’t find the man I knew within you

I can taste it
It lingers on your tongue
I can see it
your wasted and I’m in love

With the man I used to know
beneath the stench of alcohol
he's slipped away and is lost to me now
Till I can’t find the man I knew within you
Within you

But I can hear it
Its slurring between your lips
Why try avoiding the situation we are in

For I don’t want to \
And I won’t watch you fall into darkness again
Till I can’t find the man I knew within you
Track Name: Flicker Like a Flame
Someday when I am older and this world it seems to vanish in the night
Memories float across my mind and slowly come to life
Like dust dancing in the light

Someday when I am wiser I will smile upon the days I’m going through
It never mattered what lay upon my skin or what shape my flesh was in
Never changed the destiny that could have been

So if this is how life goes
Nothing stays the same and everyday I change
I’ll flicker, flicker like a flame

Someday when this moment is a faded photograph
I’ll realize I spent my life with love all around
For you are the faces on my life
constellations of my sky you guided me though the night

So if this is how life goes
Nothing stays the same and everyday I change
I’ll flicker, flicker like a flame
Track Name: Here We Go Again
Never want to smile under pitched rice or
Run down the aisle in a gown of white or
Say I do to the rest of my life with you

But the world walked out as you walked in and I’m a
Twelve year old girl playing barbie again
Just sticking on stilettos and slapping that makeup on

When will love me through with me
Be though with me
Come on be though with me

Look at me dancing around like this
In a push up bra and red lipstick
Craving the attention on the mention of T & A

Never could picture our lives spun together
Like a spider web out in the weather the
Wind would blow but we’d never tether the storm

When will love me through with me
Be though with me
Come on be though with me
Well here we go again
Track Name: Let it Go Dear
Let it go dear
Let it roll off of your tongue
Like a storm it must come thundering

Say it plain girl
Don’t dress the fire up in lace
For you will singe all the grace of the point you must make
to walk away

Let it die there
by the lampshade drenched in smoke
for you may laugh at his jokes
But if you swallow this you’ll choke till you let it go

Its okay Its alright
let it fade with the night
for you must the truth and say no to him and walk away

There's no answer for the love he could not give
so there's no use wondering if there was more you could give
so let it fall dear, slip from your hands with a silent thud
Let it stick in the mud, for some things stay stuck till you let them go


Its okay Its alright
let it fade with the night
for you must the truth and say
No to him and walk away and walk away

Rise out the ashes all your forgotten passions open up your eyes and say goodbye
