about

Teisha Helgerson, the voice of the bands Amelia and Say Uncle, left a notebook filled with lyrics and snippets of gorgeous melodies sung into her phone. Her friends and peers took those snippets and melodies and used them as seeds of inspiration for the songs on this record. Proceeds from the sale of "Carry On" will benefit "Teisha's Place," a temporary home for transplant recipients and their families.

Track Name: Teisha Helgerson - It's All Gonna Be Great
Late beginner born in winter
don’t remember the day
bright and open like the ocean
carry me away.
And it’s all gonna be great…
just you wait
Track Name: Susannah Weaver - The State That You're In
The light in the hallway when the curtain is closed
the stack by the back door is over exposed.
Wake from your deep sleep and cry if you must
pray for the opinion you think you can trust.

Suppose you’re the winner with wounds on the mend
Suppose you are loaded with money to spend
Suppose you are wiser than you’ve ever been
Suppose it is perfect, the state that you’re in…

Wake from the damp sleep and cry if you must
wait for the opinion you hope you can trust.
Jump from the little plane all the way down
survive without parachutes making a sound.

Suppose you’re the winner with wounds on the mend
Suppose you are loaded hanging out with your friends friends
Suppose you are older than you’ve ever been
Suppose it is perfect, the state that you’re in…
Track Name: Michael Jodell and Matt Brown - 100 Happy Goodbyes
See what comes over claim what you will
take your impressions and follow the drill
of your opinions there on the ground
take the one over that’s making a sound.
Where is the wonder in the rest of these days?
Where is the tail of the tide?
Here comes the dream with the answers and names
And one hundred happy goodbyes.
See what comes under take up your fill
leave with the camera on shooting but still
beg for forgiveness plead with the dead
before the sore senses have gone to your head
Where is the wonder in the rest of these days?
Where is the tail of the tide?
Here comes the dream with the answers and names
and one hundred happy goodbyes.
Track Name: Wendy Pate - Toast to the Twilight
A dame for your dollar, watch Mary go ‘round
The Lone Fir, the stones, and the dead
aware as she passes old Valentine Brown
of the host of ghosts under their beds

A dance for your dollar in shade if you would
a twirl through the tombs she is possessed
with lively confessions the late tell the tale
to the one who lives close to her chest

A toast to the twilight two drinks in our hands
as we reach for the river, the shore, and then comes the toast
to what’s certainly the host of no uncertainty anymore…
Track Name: James Low - Carry On
Yeah she weeps I say no wonder
because it’s so beautiful what she has done here
the clock keeps ticking its tales of sorrow
we'll all just go to sleep until the sun brings tomorrow and carry on
carry everything I will and won't become, carry on.

You lose all direction shouting down the hall
I'll be your reflection ‘til you find your good footing
when we said goodbye I made a promise to myself
I'd live a little better, I'd try a little harder, I'd be a little stronger.
carry everything I will and won't become, carry on.
Track Name: Miss Tulie and Aaron Walker - The Greatest Valentine
I turn my head to start to see you ever racing down the line
understatement in the basement spend the days in waggly vines
Cinderella dressed in yella ’kissed your face and said a line
in between the coal and queen the melody that you will find
Du du du du…

Merci thank you hope I’ll meet you once again my valentine
calling to me what goes through me little breeze and candle light
‘till it’s over four leaf clover so I sing my lullaby
see the focus on the hostess of the greatest valentine
Du du du du…
Track Name: Mike Coykendall - Snowflakes
The moon makes snowflakes
and all in one direction
a heart aches and breaks when it's frozen
in the soft lullaby
somebody's waiting
not afraid of the shadows
hang a light in the window
and someday
who knows when it's coming
who knows where it's going
there's no way of knowing
somewhere....
the moon makes snowflakes
Track Name: Scott Weddle - Nothing Fancy This Time
Let it all come softly
keep it in time
let it move right through me
nothing flashy this time

Make up words out of letters take them out for a ride
put a mess back together nothing flashy this time
move a heart in rhythm be a voice on the line
let a debt be forgiven nothing fancy this time

Give up a need and a reason and take it in stride
right on the edge I turn on a dime
I make no demands, I stand in a line
I follow the truth and I swallow my pride

Let it all come softly keep it in time
let it move right through me nothing fancy this time
make up words out of letters take them out for a ride
put the whole mess together nothing fancy this time

Right on the edge I turn on a dime
keep it in check keeps you alive
I follow the truth and I swallow my pride
nothing fancy this time…
Track Name: Teisha Helgerson and Jim Brunberg - It is What It is
It’s not all but most
it’s a somber toast
sail beneath the stars
back home to who you are.
It is what it is… It is what it is...
I guess or I give (?).
Track Name: Rachel Taylor Brown - Arithmetic
The broken thermometer left in its place by the bed and the color TV
I just don't want this was all that was said on the way to the WC
hold on to my necklace clasp onto my rings
and hope this is not when the fat lady sings

Remind me remind me I'm beautiful
chase off the hounds
what other love goes round, round, round

Purge
Read
Write
Arithmetic
Sleep
Weep
Start a fire
Track Name: Ritchie Young - Morgan May
Morgan May wonders there on her hill
whether her ladies are getting their fill
the backyard the basement the fire so bright
the perilous tales that get told in the night

One hundred chances in one hundred days
pockets of potions and pockets of shade
one hundred answers in one hundred ways

Still Morgan may wonder there on her hill
whether her ladies are getting their fill
the backyard the basement the fire so bright
the perilous tales that get told in the night…
Track Name: Stephanie Schneiderman - Come Around My Love
There's a crack in the thunder a voice in the wind
as I slip under the dream that I'm in
come around my love come around me…

In the room I've found my love in the silent scene
hit the ground we're running now and broken in
come around my love come around me…

So when it’s said and when it's done in a year or three
she'll wait for the man in a dragon boat to take care of me
come around my love come around me…

It’s when we forget it’s when we flee it's when we remember remember me
this all is all we have to make do the trigger is the hand off wouldn't you
come around my love come around me…
Track Name: Teisha Helgerson (with Say Uncle) - Ma Seule
No regrets on the day you go away
Say not a word, not a sentence
Nothing but flowers that remain in the vase
Nothing but flowers like days.
You are my only one.

No regrets except the day I go
Say not a word, not a sentence
Nothing but memories want to stay
Memories like days
I am committed
You are my only one.
