Gabrielemenopee Christina LaRocca is like cowboy boots on a red carpet, like red lipstick on a glass of whiskey, like the Los Angeles sun setting in New York. These are pipes so big they can hold everything from the east coast to west, who knows, maybe even the world

Play my guitar in an empty apartment Three thousand miles from home On this California coast is where I let my spirit roam Light up a smoke grab a flask of jack And write these words in a paperback If I can get it all down before daylight I’ll get some sleep tonight The sound, sound, sound of my heart beats like a drum I’ve found, found, found I am a Child of the Sun Morning breaks my eyes are open wide Grab my sweater take a walk outside Down to the ocean where my mother’s voice Speaks calmly to me I ask her to stand by side Watch over me and be my guide It’s a lonely road and I’m still searchin’ For a peace of mind The sound, sound, sound of my heart beats like a drum I’ve found, found, found I am a Child of the Sun Child of the sun Child of the sun Child of the sun Do do do do… Play my guitar in an empty apartment Three thousand miles from home On this California coast is where I let my spirit roam The sound, sound, sound of my heart beats like a drum I’ve found, found, found I am a Child of the Sun

There were times I failed Times I have won Times I have struggled Maybe even hurt someone I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human Sometimes I laugh So hard I cry Sometimes I hurt so hard I just wana break down and die Cuz’ I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human Born from the earth We came from the dirt This is one life One chance Be good to each other Take care your sisters and brothers Try and understand one another I’m only one person One choice But together we have voice To choose love over hate Show compassion, educate Use less, don’t waste Before it’s too late Try hard to stay strong Always choose right over wrong I’m gonna try We should try ‘cuz I am Only Human I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human I am only human

about

The worldwide digital release contains the first 2 songs I have recorded since moving to Los Angeles - "Child of the Sun" and "I Am Only Human" Distro by @The Orchard

Both of the tunes mean so much to me.

I literally wrote "Child of the Sun" while sitting in an apartment with zero furniture in Long Beach years ago before moving out to the west coast. It definitely was a defying moment in my life.

The vocals to "I Am Only Human" were recorded on January 21, 2017, the day of the Women's March in DC. The timing could not have been more perfect honestly. It's a song about taking care of one another, and bringing more compassion and understanding into today's world. This was my way of demonstrating.

I could go on forever here but I will leave you to it. Enjoy :)
