about

Rudy Simone New York, New York

Simone is the strange progeny of mixed musical marriages, from early jazz, through classic rock, metal, dark wave, trip hop and just about everything else that appealed to her soul. Half British, half American her haunting songs evoke the Yorkshire Moors as much as the narrow streets of Nola and the dark forests of upstate NY. Her voice is equally dualistic... ... more

Track Name: Take Me Back Home
Take Me Back Home ©2012 Rudy Simone words and music

Folks here’s the story of rudy the moocher
Once I was a red hot hoochie coocher
But people are strange when you’re a stranger
Everywhere I looked I found myself in danger
(Chorus) Singin’ hide hide hide From the lies lies lies ooh ooh ooh Take me back home
I’m the girl who fell to earth
Never really understood just what I was worth
I knew I was special no one else seemed to get me so I gave it away to anyone who’d pet me
(Chorus)
Got my heart broken so many times, I fixed it up with superglue and these god-awful rhymes
So sing it with me if you know what I meant and ever felt like life was a cosmic experiment
(Chorus)
Singin’ hide hide hide From the lies lies lies ooh ooh ooh Take me back home
Track Name: I Saved Your Space
I SAVED YOUR SPACE ©2012 Rudy Simone words and music

My sheets are twisted like my sleepless nights
Bad dreams that last until the morning light
I’d put the kettle on but I think I’ll drink some wine
Watch a movie kill myself sometime

Chorus) And you don’t know how much I
carried you round in my space just in case
Someday I’ll learn to live without rancor and regret
but until the time is met
at least I can say I saved your space

I could go out
but I’m not the kind that meets
old and new friends
passing on the street
Chorus
Your eyes are blue as mood
your hair as black as pride
And you don’t know how much I
carried you round in my space
just in case
Someday I’ll learn to live without
rancor and regret
but until the time is met
least I can say I saved your space
I saved your space
I saved your space
Track Name: Whiskey Will
Whiskey Will ©Rudy Simone 2013

You’re a cheater a nasty little cheater you got the whole world fooled but I’m not
Prince charming so disarming the girls don’t know that you can’t keep it up.

Chorus) They call him whiskey will but whiskey won’t
Your left wishin while he’s swishin and swillin
Leaves his body unwilling
They call him whiskey will but whiskey won’t

Put your glass down come to bed while you still can Be a man
I cried myself to sleep most nights. Didn’t ask for much. just your touch.

I’m sure it will be great for a while with miss new
But what goes around comes around and its coming for you

They call him whiskey will but whiskey won’t
Your left wishin while he sleeps at the table
Leaves his body unable
They call him whiskey will but whiskey won’t

I’m gonna trade you in. Get me one that works!
Track Name: The Box and the Machine
The Box and the Machine ©Rudy Simone 2013

You are the Box and the Machine Tryin to get away with me Well at most I view you cautiously
You are the Box and the Machine Are you trying to mess with me? Well I’m busy in my eccentricity

Long may you reign just don’t rain on my parade
I can’t keep up with the charade like all the others who’ve obeyed

You are the Box and the Machine tryin to get ahold of me Well at most I view you awkwardly
You are the Box and the Machine are you tryin to capture me? Well I’m busy tryin to keep my engine clean

The law of life is simple To thine own self be true
Not sell your soul To the bidder with the promise of a view

You are the Box and the Machine Are you tryin to capture me Well at most I view you awkwardly
You are the Box and the Machine Tryin to run away with me I’m too busy in my eccentricity
You are the Box and the Machine Are you tryin to capture me Well at most I view you cautiously
You are the Box and the Machine Tryin to get away with me Well at most I view you cautiously
Track Name: Alice In Underland
Alice in Underland ©2013 Rudy Simone words and music

Alice in wonderland is sitting in your hand she is a habit
She fell into the ground when logic got her down she’s chasing rabbits
You can be my shelter on the inside cuz it’s a hard world sometimes
I can be your shelter on the outside

Alice thinks she can play oh but not today she’s gone away
She doesn’t have time for books but by hook or crook she is learning

You can be my shelter on the inside cuz it’s a hard hard world sometimes
I can be your shelter on the outside

I’m down here in the dark….
Track Name: Black Sheep
Black Sheep ©2012 Rudy Simone words and music

Bye bye said the black sheep I been here too long
Bye bye said the black sheep I hung round here too long
I heard you say you ain’t gonna miss me when I’m gone

I was just a child didn’t ask to be born Left me runnin’ wild then tell me I’m all wrong
Gave me nothing I could use for my journey on

Bye bye said the black sheep I been here too long
Bye bye said the black sheep I hung round here too long
Yea I know you aint gonna miss me when I’m gone

Love aint just a word you don’t say what you mean
Your actions lack the conviction of your dreams
Gonna dry my dogs, take my tears and leave

Bye bye said the black sheep I been here too long
Bye bye said the black sheep I hung round here too long
Yea I know, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Someday I’ll show em, I’ll show em all what I can do
But don’t think you know me till you walk a mile in my shoes
Then you’ll finally know this black sheep Then you’ll finally know this black sheep
Then you’ll finally know this black sheep is really blue
Track Name: Something New In Spring
SOMETHING NEW IN SPRING ©2012 Rudy Simone words and music

Summertime and I spend it in hiding Other kids are runnin’ wild with people they like
but no one’s like me Until I find them nothing can comfort me
Cuz nobody’s knows the trouble I have seen

Autumn time I feel my hope dying Heavy load to hide inside this heart of mine
I still have time well that’s what they say
But nobody knows how I feel myself slipping away

Wintertime is more to my liking It’s okay to hide ‘neath a blanket of white
Until the moment someone will find me
I live in hope of something new in spring
Track Name: Gothic Blues
GOTHIC BLUES ©2012 Rudy Simone words and music

There will come a day when I have gone away and I won’t be comin’ home no more
We used to kiss the days away now we piss the days away
You drink too much, I think too much
And all the time shoot bullets at the floor

I go out alone at night sit in a dark corner
Feelin’ sorry for myself maybe I’m just a born loner
and everyone thinks you’re great I wonder what I did to deserve this fate
Maybe it’s time to admit… it’s time to quit I’m sad to say

I left my house in NY you never knew I’d be so much work
You told everyone about your girl but I’m on the other side of the world
fine line between soulmate and cellmate and I just can’t tell anymore
so I headed for the door
Now I’m feeling scared and like a loon cuz he ain’t in my living room
3000 miles lie between my past present and future dream
I’m not sure which way I should turn first I crash and then I burn
Before I start a waterfall I tell you all in all
We did pretty well for two kids who brought our own hell to the mix
It’s hard to fix such a situation but here’s my aggravation
I still love you I do
We like the same movies most of the time got the same outlook on politics and crime
and we both know a lie so I won’t snow you I won’t try
I’m sad to say gothic blues have taken me away
