about

Gina and Trevor first met in Berlin, Germany in early 2015 and began exploring a collaboration almost immediately. Recorded in the Catalan countryside, these five songs take inspiration from the traditional music of Europe and America, and are the fruits borne from their time together.

Track Name: I Won't Be Your Fool Again
You ask me for a dollar and I hand you fifty cents
Kiss me on the cheek and you can have the rest
I’m very sorry darling but my kisses aren’t so cheap
And I only give my loving when the giving is for free

I won’t be your fool again
Oh no, oh no
I won’t be your fool again

You tell me that you love me and you claim you never lie
But if you say “I love you” you should look me in the eye
I’m very sleepy darling, it’s been a long, hard day
I’d look you in the eye, but my eyelid’s in the way
(Hmm..!)

I won’t be your fool again
Oh no, oh no
I won’t be your fool again

I wake up in the morning and the sun is shining bright
You tell me that it’s raining but there’s not a cloud in sight
I’m very sorry darling, could’ve sworn that it was true
I always feel it’s raining when I’m not with with you
(Oh, poor thing!)

I won’t be your fool again
Oh no, oh no
I won’t be your fool again
Track Name: Animalets de Plastilina
Animalets de plastilina rodolant
Rellisquen pel pupitre pota avall
Això només passa quan la classe no és de ningú

I els noms dels nens escrits amb dibuixets
Als penjadors de bates i barrets
Una classe muda espera en silenci

Una suma a completar
Trenta trens iguals en collage
Pica paret si plou
Que les bruixes es pentinin sota el sol

Punta, llapis, ceres i gomets
I un nen amb corona que en té tres
Mestres que demanen un moment després del timbre

M’he deixat la bata un altre cop
I ara quan podré cosir els botons
El ressò dels riures és al meu cap de pardals

Una suma a completar
Trenta trens iguals en collage
Pica paret si plou
Que les bruixes es pentinin sota el sol

Animalets de plastilina rodolant
Rellisquen pel pupitre pota avall
Això només passa quan la classe no és de ningú
Track Name: My Dear You've Had Enough!
Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

I was young and I was bold
I never did as I was told
And on a cold December morn
I left the town where I was born

Didn’t know where I was bound
Now I’ve traveled half the world around
Those things you only read in books
Well, I was there, I had a look!

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

Well, I met a man from Babylon
He taught me how to sing this song
I sang it from a balcony
A dozen girls called out to me

The eleventh was the prettiest
She came upstairs in a blue dress
The clock struck twelve, she ran down again
She left her shoe, but not her name

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

I plucked an apple from the tree
A woman, she walked up to me
I know that it’s hard to believe
But she told me that her name was Eve

I asked her, “Where is Paradise?”
“Everywhere!” was her advice
Then she asked me for a bite
Well I gave her one, ‘cause I’m polite!

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

Well, I know a man who used to beg
Now his goose lays golden eggs
Scheherazade’s a friend of mine
I tell her stories all the time

Dear ladies and kind gentlemen
This tale has nearly reached its end
But if you’d like to hear some more
Surely you know where to pour

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!
Track Name: Tick Tock
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Inside my head
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Under my pillow

The world is waking
But I’m still dreaming
The dawn is breaking
This moment is fleeting

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Hold me closer
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Never release me

I don’t wanna get up
I don’t wanna leave you
Can’t step out of bed now
Even though I need to

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Tick, tock — how time goes by
Tick, tock, tick, tock
Five minutes more to bide our time
Tick, tock, tick, tock
These moments are yours and mine
Tick, tock, tick, tock
Tick, tock, tick, tock

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Why don’t we hide here?
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
No one will find us

Under the white sheets
We’ll giggle like children
There’s no need to retreat
From this fortress we’re building

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Tick, tock — how time goes by
Tick, tock, tick, tock
Five minutes more to bide our time
Tick, tock, tick, tock
These moments are yours and mine
Tick, tock, tick, tock
Tick, tock, tick, tock

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Inside my head
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Under my pillow

The world is waking
My dreams are fading
The dawn is breaking
What will today bring?

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick
Track Name: Silver Earrings
Won’t you bring my silver earrings to Texas?
The ones I left with you way back when
Yes, I’ll bring your silver earrings to Texas
‘Cause I don’t know when I’ll be seeing you again

I up and moved to New York City
I took a trip to Italy
But I came to visit you in New York City
I never came to see you in Italy

Sometimes in the wintertime
Sometimes in the summertime
Sometimes in the springtime or the fall
I get so lonely
Sometimes you’re the only
One to whom I want to place a call

How about we take a trip down to Austin?
New York City’s got me feeling down
Well I’d love to take a trip down to Austin
I’ve heard that it’s a helluva town

But won’t you bring my silver earrings to Texas?
The ones I left with you way back when
Yes, I’ll bring your silver earrings to Texas
‘Cause I don’t know when I’ll be seeing you again
