about

Jimmy Tierney Boston, Massachusetts

Jimmy Tierney enjoys writing, recording, and playing his own music which gives him full creative control to blend genres that aren't typically being heard together. Most recently Jimmy has put disco dance beats behind rhythmic guitar licks, synth pads, and 8-bit video game sounds to accompany his frequent vocal harmonies. He clearly just wants to have fun, be heard, and get bodies moving. Enjoy! ... more

Track Name: Go
I've got this thing for you
It's not a crush
It's a what-if
What if we took the time?
What if we let ourselves go?

I'll talk you through
The thought I'm having
Well I look at you
The possibilities jump out
Just like the cow that got himself over the moon

Or maybe I should
Go-o-o-oh-woah (go go)
Go-o-o-oh-woah (go go)
Go-o-o-oh-woah (go go)
Go-o-o-oh-ohh

Say we take the time
And then what happens?
Yeah, lets trend that line
Not trying to move it all too soon
Just like the dish that ran away with his dear spoon

Oh maybe we could
Go-o-o-oh-woah (go go)
Go-o-o-oh-woah (go go)
Go-o-o-oh-woah (go go)
Go-o-o-oh-ahh

And I've seen it all before
And now looking back I could have stepped on something good
Well I've seen if from afar and I'm thinking now

Go-o-o-oh-woah
Go-o-o-oh-woah
Go-o-o-oh-woah
Go-o-o-oh-ohh

Go-o-o-oh-woah
Go-o-o-oh-woah
Go-o-o-oh-woah
Go-o-o-oh-ohh

I've got this thing for you
It's not a crush
It's a what-if
What if we took the time
What if we let ourselves go
Track Name: Show
I close my eyes
I close my eyes 'cause I do not know
I held your hand
I held your hand and then I let go

And some time went by
Time went right by when I caught up
I turned to see
I turned to see that you weren't waiting

'Cause it's time
Show
The feelings that I now know
They're coming out

'Cause it's time
Show
The reason that you waited
Just let it go

Do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do
Do do dooo

I came to you
I came to you with thoughts of grander
Those weren't her eyes
Those weren't her eyes
Someone had found her

'Cause it's time
Show
The feelings that I now know
They're coming out

'Cause it's time
Show
The reason that you waited
Just let it show

Time takes it's tole
I strayed a little far I know
Where I want to be
It's wherever you are
You see

Well I close my eyes
And I realize

Well I close my eyes
Eyes
And I realize

'Cause it's time
Show
The feelings that I now know
They're coming out

'Cause it's time
Show
The reason that you waited
Just let it show

Track Name: Making a Spaceship
Everyone start looking
What do you find?
What do you think you find?
I hope we get a little
A little piece of mind

So I go back to outer space
'Cause it's the place where we first met
Then I remember that we haven't yet

Eyes and ears, they're just a curse
It's all a little too well rehearsed
Anyone else feel they're the only one on earth?
On Earth
On Earth
And then I go like this

I think we'll put our heads together
And find them nuts and bolts
Let's find them nuts and bolts
Put them together and make a spaceship
Yeah

So I go back to outer space
'Cause it's the place where we first met
And I remember that we haven't yet

Eyes and ears, they're just a curse
It's all a little too well rehearsed
Anyone else feel they're the only one on earth?
On Earth
On Earth
And then I go like this

And you can try to hold us down
(oh-oh-oh)
(oh-oh-oh)
You'd better hold on tight
'Cause we're lifting off the ground

So i go back to outer space
'Cause it's the place we first met
And I remember that we haven't yet
Eyes and ears, they're just a curse
It's all a little too well rehearsed
Anyone else feel they're the only one?

So we all look up to the stars
Except those people still in cars
But then I guess it's just impossibly far
Track Name: I Love You, Goodbye
Sometimes buildings fall
And there's a bridge too small
You could lose them all
We could lose them all

Sometimes statues fall
But worst of all
This one was me
I'm on my knees

I love you
Goodbye

To the teardrops in our eyes
I love you
Goodbye

Keep our heads up tall
And while my words are small
We know that winter's coming after fall
We're on a different route
And I'm starting to shout
'Cause it's the last time my voice will ring out for you

I love you
Goodbye

To the teardrops in our eyes
I love you
Goodbye

And we leave it all behind
I love you
Goodbye

To the teardrops in our eyes
The teardrops
(The teardrops)
(A real love song)

I love you
Goodbye
(I love you)
(I'm falling now)

I love you
Goodbye
(I love you)
(Goodbye)
Track Name: Sheep to Count On
I'm out of time
You walk a line
So it's goodbye again
I'm running out of sheep to count on

Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh

I'm moving in
You're moving out
So it's goodbye again
I'm running out of sheep to count on

When will these dreams start coming true?
It starts with me
Can it get to you?

I'm half the man I want to be
The shadow's hanging over
And I'm not scared

I'm half the man I want to be
The shadow's hanging over
And I'm not scared

Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh

I know you know
I want to go
But it's goodbye again
I'm running out of sheep to count on

When will these dreams start coming true?
It starts with me
Can it get to you?

I'm half the man I want to be
The shadow's hanging over
And I'm not scared

I'm half the man I want to be
The shadow's hanging over
And I'm not scared

Do you know where you are at night?
(At night)
When I'm sleeping you are by my side
(My side)
Do you know where you go at night?
(At night)
When I'm sleeping you are by my side
Track Name: 2 - 1 = 1
I was an honest man
Looking for an honest day's wage
Standing in the center of town waiting to turn the page
And as the day, it turned to night, I was standing all alone
Next thing I know I'm in a tub of ice holding a note
Unsure of what has happened I try to gather clues
In an attempt to recreate the scene
With the stitch on my side I read two minus one equals one

It's half past two in a hotel room
Just off of the interstate
I got my knife, a bag of ice, and some Vaseline
I soak a rag in chloroform as someone stumbles through the door
I knock him out, collect my pay, sew him up and he's okay
And in the end laying upon his hospital bed
He is ecstatic just to be alive
A kidney is all we need and two minus one equals one

You may think that I'm a monster
But I don't agree at all
I'm just trying to make a living
Feed my family
Earn my keep

So in the end when you pass judgement on my choice of a career
Please don't forget there is nobody who is without peer
I have an army and a will
If you offend my pride, when you wake up, if I were you I would check my side
'Cause everybody knows that I'm a human just like you
And when my feelings hurt I try to rectify it
So watch what you say 'cause two minus two equals none
Track Name: Blind
I'm walking over to you
You're walking over to me too
I like it when you're coming into view
Let's see what we got to do
'Cause we got to do it yeah

I need to take the time
To get something off my chest and on the line
I know it'd be just fine
If I can take the time, baby
And while I like you on my mind
There's a problem I can't find
Every time I look into your eyes, I go blind
I go blind
Ooh I go blind

I'm walking away from you
You're walking over to me too
Don't let me get out of view
Lets see what we got to do
'Cause we got to do it yeah

I need to take the time
To get something off my chest and on the line
I know it'd be just fine
If I can take the time, baby
And while I like you on my mind
There's a problem I can't find
Every time I look into your eyes, I go blind
I go blind
Ooh I go blind

I'm walking away from you
You're walking away from me too
Before we get out of view
Let's see what we got to do
'Cause we got to do it yeah

I need to take the time
To get something off my chest and on the line
I know it'd be just fine
If i can take the time, baby
And while I like you on my mind
There's a problem I can't find
Every time I look into your eyes, I go blind
I go blind
Ooh i go blind
Track Name: Break-Up Song
I don't want to break your heart
It's probably selfish thinking I even could
See I love just who you are
But I found I'm pretending

And I can't deny
(I can't deny)
I gave it a try
(Gave it a try)
This isn't something I can fake
So I'm letting you go
(Letting you go)
And letting you know
(Letting you know)
You were the best of my mistakes

I never thought I'd be the one
To let us fall down now, but we're falling fast
And I never thought I'd see it end
Because of something I started

But I can't deny
(I can't deny)
I gave it a try
(Gave it a try)
This isn't something I can fake
So I'm letting you go
(Letting you go)
And letting you know
(Letting you know)
You were the best of my mistakes

And you deserve more than I can give to you
You deserve more now
You deserve more, but I can't give you more
Something inside me tells me "move along"
"He's not where you belong"

And i can't deny
(I can't deny)
i gave it a try
(Gave it a try)
This isn't something I can fake
So I'm letting you go
(Letting you go)
And letting you know
(Letting you know)
You were the best of my mistakes

And i can't deny
(I can't deny)
I gave it a try
But this isn't something I can fake
So I'm letting you go
(Letting you go)
And letting you know
(Letting you know)
You were the best of my mistakes
Track Name: I Get Things Wrong (A Capella)
I get things wrong
I wrote this song about it
I get things wrong
So hear my song

I come out like a bullet
Then I pull back real hard
I don't let you know where I'm going
It's only because I am scarred

Would you come despite my warnings?
I've been known to get things wrong
Would you leave me in the morning?
Or would you stay and sing along?

I can be arrogant, I know
And I like to put on my show
If I don't like what I'm hearing I put up my defense
Lots of little jokes are on the way at your expense

Would you come despite my warnings?
I've been known to get things wrong
Would you leave me in the morning?
Or would you stay and sing along?

I get things wrong
I wrote this song about it
I get things wrong
So hear my song
Track Name: Stars (Live)
What news do you bring Mr. Darkness?
Dredge it up from the depth, the abyss
Did all the angels compromise?
Did all the angels close their eyes to me?

I look to the sky 'cause there's room
Might be looking up from the floor pretty soon
And the angels all get out their brooms
Did the angels close their eyes too soon for me?

I stare into space cause it scares me
But it helps me to see the stars
The stars might have burned out long ago
Still they shine their glow

La da da da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da da
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

I smile as I pass through the heavens
I try to high-five the stars
As I break through the thoughts I want in my past
I know where we'll last

La da da da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da da

I smile as I pass through the heavens
Try to high-five the stars
To break through the thoughts I want in my past
I know where we'll last

La da da da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da da
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Still they shine their glow
