about

The third (and latest) album has been in the works since we finished the first album in 2016. This album is the third Green Flamingos have recorded, but only the second to be released. Our numbering system might not make a lot of sense, but musicians rarely do!

We started moving away from the "mostly acoustic" feel of the first album, pulling in all sorts of genres and styles. Bobby J has a vast collection of songs, and taking those, along with some new material written with Jesse, allows for a very eclectic range.

Track Name: Table for One
Lyrics:

I’ve been sitting here for ages
My face is hot the food is cold
I’m waiting for someone
I’m trying to look cool ‘cause I just got stood up
But I’m used to it by now
I’ve survived this long
And I don’t know how
My face isn’t stuck in a frown

So that’s it
I’ve figured it out
To avoid the hurt that’s coming about
When they ask what it’s gonna be
Table for one
Table for one
Table for one
Table for one

As I walk along the street
I see a girl, she smiles at me
But I know what comes next
I’ll keep my heart in my chest
Put my love aside and wait for the right time
When somebody comes along
And makes me want to write a love song

So that’s it
I’ve figured it out
When they ask what it’s gonna be

Table for one
Table for one
Table for one
Table for one
Table for one
Track Name: Goodbye Paradise
Lyrics:

I woke up in the morning
Tears fell like the rain
I thought I’d gotten over it
It’s getting harder every day

Goodbye paradise
Don’t know when I’ll see you again
Goodbye paradise
Don’t know when I’ll meet you again

And though it’s getting harder
Each and every day
Well I’m just getting stronger
Love will find a way

Goodbye paradise
Don’t know when I’ll see you again
Goodbye paradise
Don’t know when I’ll meet you again

Goodbye paradise
Don’t know when I’ll see you again
Goodbye paradise
Don’t know when I’ll meet you again
Track Name: The Promise
Lyrics:

You can’t stop this boulder
From rolling down the hill
‘Cause you’re feeding a fire
That grows stronger still

And you won’t stop these colors
From flowing from my heart
Yes I feel like moving mountains
Just to get to where you are

What did I do to deserve your time
And how did I gain your attention
Whatever it is that you see in me
I promise to keep it alive
If you promise to stay by my side

Set the past behind you
Let me step into your light
Though the road still winds before us
We will make it through alright

I was walking in the shadows
Never know if there was so much more
Then you opened up my eyes
And you gave me wings to soar

What did I do to deserve your time
And how did I gain your attention I really want to know
Whatever it is that you see in me
I promise to keep it alive
If you promise to stay by my side

You can’t stop this boulder
From rolling down the hill
‘Cause you’re feeding a fire
That grows stronger still
Track Name: Fall Away
Lyrics:

I pick up the pieces of what we had
Memories scattered across the floor
I'm racking my brain, still trying to fix this
Your angry feet carry you to the door
I should probably find a way to stop you now
But instead I let the honest words slip out

I want to fall away
Wrapped up tightly in your arms
And please, darling, won't you stay
Right here with me, forever, baby
Oh and I have never fallen for someone
Like I've fallen for you

I stand on the front porch looking out
It's funny how empty the world can be
Next thing I know, you're back in the driveway
Your gentle hands wipe the tears from my cheek
I can't stop saying, "I'm sorry"
But instead you let the honest words slip out

I want to fall away
Wrapped up tightly in your arms
And please, darling, won't you stay
Right here with me, forever, baby
Oh and I have never fallen for someone
Like I've fallen for you
Track Name: Not That Far Away
Lyrics:

The path we used to walk looks wider now, I know
And I'm sure you wish that I could fill the space
Keep moving on till the worst is gone, 'cause the world is cold as hell
So set it on fire with a compassion that overtakes

And I know you think that you can run but you can't hide
Open up your crying eyes I swear you're blind
Remember I can see you cradled by the dark
My voice is carried by the wind
I will lift your heavy heart

'Cause I am not that far away
You will understand someday
Just try to find your peace of mind while I'm not by your side
I am not that far away
I am not that far away

I'm sure sometimes you think that I just left you here
But I promise I am with you all the time
And even when your life seems tough and hard to bear
Please know that I am there amidst the strife.

And I know you think that you can run but you can't hide
Open up your crying eyes I swear you're blind
You're holding on, trying not to let me fade
But those memories can't die
and you don't have to say goodbye

'Cause I am not that far away
You will understand someday
Just try to find your peace of mind while I'm not by your side
I am not that far away
I am not that far away

So as you're pushing on through times of thick and thin
Like a wave of ups and downs within the sea
I'll always be with you in happiness and pain
And the love I have for you will never fade

And though you think that you could run but you can't hide
Open up your crying eyes I swear you're blind
My heart will stay with you, a song within the wind
Oh I am not that far away
And we will meet again someday
Track Name: Something's Wrong
Lyrics:

Well I think you're sick and tired of me
'Cause the only thing you're holding tonight is that damn Jim Beam
And he's been closer to you than I
But he can't hold you tonight

Something's wrong, I can see
In those baby blue eyes
Your lips don't want me
So why am I holding you tonight

I can smell the smell as you walk in the room
You weren't with your friends, now honey, and your lies ain't true
'Cause it ain't hard to spot a snake in the sand
Leaving trails where you go
Thought I wouldn't understand

Something's wrong, I can see
In those baby blue eyes
Your lips don't want me
So why am I holding you tonight

Something's wrong, I can see
In those baby blue eyes
Your lips don't want me
So why am I holding you tonight

Yeah, yeah tell me why am I holding you tonight
Track Name: What Does It Take
Lyrics:

I spend my nights rehearsing
Like it's some sort of play
Phrasing every line until I get it right
Wishing you could hear me speaking clearly
Heartfelt words I couldn't say

So what does it take to tell you
I love you, I really do
What does it take to tell you
I love you, I really do

I hope someday I tell you
Before it's just too late
And I hope you'll understand how much I really care
Repeating each line at least a million times
Before I know it's right

So what does it take to tell you
I love you, I really do
What does it take to tell you
I love you, I really do

You can ask anybody
I talk about it all the time
And I won't stop rehearsing 'til I get it right

So what does it take to say
What does it take

So what does it take to tell you
I love you, I really do
What does it take to tell you
I love you, I love you, I love you
Track Name: Cold Outside
Lyrics:

He’s sitting by the fireplace
His laughter fills the air
You can see that he’s loving
The girl with the rosette hair
His happiness is all but obvious
To everyone looking in
But I’m at the window
And I wish I was him

‘Cause it’s cold outside
So bring your warmth in here
And I’m cold inside
So won’t you burn my tears

Shadows surround me
Filling my eyes
But where he is sitting
Lights dance and embrace him at night
And I’ve been trying to call in
To hear his voice again
But time after time, and ring after ring
The silence is cold as the wind

‘Cause it’s cold outside
So bring your warmth out here
And I’m cold inside
So won’t you burn my tears

I know that so many love him
And I feel so alone
Why the hell did I give up
And walk out of my own home
‘Cause that man on the inside
Is not what he seems
‘Cause he’s fooling his loved ones
‘Cause that man is me

‘Cause it’s cold outside
So bring your warmth out here
And I’m cold inside
So won’t you burn my fears

‘Cause I’m cold outside
So bring your warmth out here
And I’m cold inside
So won’t you burn my fears
Track Name: Lazy
Lyrics:

And your eyes make the stars want to shine brighter
And your smile can melt my heart
And you make me want to fly higher
And I want to be the light in your dark

So baby, I've been so lazy
I should have told you sooner that I loved you
Ohhh, and baby, please say maybe
To give me a chance is all I ask you to do

Can you feel my heart's rhythm
Come closer, let our love keep time
And our differences, we'll see right through them
Ohhh, I hope I touch your heart, 'cause you've got mine

Oh baby, I've been so lazy
I should have told you sooner that I loved you
Ohhh, and baby, please say maybe
To give me a chance is all I ask you to do

Ohhh, if I say I love you, will you say you love me too
Ohhh, if I say I love you, will you say you love me too
