about

These songs were all recorded at home in my bedroom on a laptop with a cheap mic and my $40 guitar. Personally I would have wanted to record these songs more properly, but I'm also happy with them stripped down as they are. It represents where I am in life. Broke financially and in resources, but still committed to this journey as an artist. That's why the album is simply titled "BOBBY", which I found fitting given that it's just me being myself - imperfect… but that being okay.

Thank you so much to Wendy Wang for doing such a great job of mixing this album. You're the best, Wendy.

There are literally countless people I need to thank from the bottom of my heart for helping to make this album possible. You all know who you are and I hope to repay you in being just as great to you as you've been to me over the years. Can't wait to see you all. God bless you and keep you.

The Big Phony album "LONG LIVE THE LIE" was released simultaneously with this album. It has more of an electronic or 80's new wave vibe to it. Please check it out, thanks!

Track Name: Bedford Stop
"BEDFORD STOP"

I'll meet you in the afternoon
Don't worry, I can come to you
I'll meet you at the Bedford stop
Won't matter what you say
I only need to see your face
and I'll know what you're going through

So how you doing now, sister?

Call it what you want to call it
No need to lie to me
Take only what you need
I'll never let you down
Always gonna be around
Even when you want me gone

So how about it now, sister?
One look is all I need
Sister, don't cry

It's only when you fall apart
Then you really recognize where you started
And it's the same for me
Seeing you will comfort me
Just thought I'd let you know...
Track Name: But I Will, Everyday
"BUT I WILL, EVERYDAY"

One of us was waiting around for no one else
And I've had enough...
Well, I guess for now...
With a brick on the balance, but too little to weigh a reason down
I've got a lot to figure out, so it seems

But I'll love you, and you and you alone
I won't have to tell you what you'd already know
But I will, everyday
We just have to find a way to meet each other

So much for wasted time, and all of the drinking alone
Buying the bullets without a gun
I want the feelings, I want a part in your life
I want to pair your hand, your hand with mine

and I want to love you, and you and you alone
I won't have to tell you what you already know
But you know I will, everyday
We just have to find our way to meet each other
Track Name: Waiting On a Breeze
"WAITING ON A BREEZE"

Was waiting on a breeze to knock me off my feet
When you came through, and took me out
They could tell us where to go, but I don't want to know
How bodies break, I rather look the other way

I look for you now in places we've talked about
Dear, how dare you leave me?
Without any word
You left me lost and unaware,
You just don't know or you just don't care?

Most would walk away, but I can hardly wait
My body aches, but I like the pain
Only one thing left unsaid
"너를 사랑해"

I look for you now in places we've talked about
Dear, how dare you leave me?
Without any word
You left me lost and unaware,
You just don't know or you just don't care?

So it goes, that you never know
So much for the ones you love
So much for love

I look for you now in places we've talked about
Dear, how dare you leave me?
Without any word or any leads
I look for you now in places we've talked of
Dear, how dare you leave me?
You left me lost and unaware,
You just don't know or you just don't care?
Track Name: She's the Kind of Girl
"SHE'S THE KIND OF GIRL"

She's the kind of girl, you want to make her smile
She's the kind of girl you want on your side
She's the kind of girl you picture when day dreaming
She's the kind of girl I like

She's the kind of girl you have her eyes memorized
You've got her on your mind most all of the time
She is held responsible for at least a hundred heartaches
She's the kind of girl I like

I'll ask her to join me on the balcony to dance
She's that kind of girl you ask
You picture her there next to you
She is everything you need
She's the kind of girl for me

You are happy when she's stays longer than she's allowed
It's a pity, such a shame when she goes away
She can save the day, she has that effect on you
She's that kind of girl
She's the kind of girl I like
Track Name: Before You Can Leave Me
"BEFORE YOU CAN LEAVE ME"

I don't want to be, I don't want to be around when you leave town
I don't want to be, I don't want to be around when you walk out

Time would tell, I had not enough to fulfill your needs
So I'll leave you before you can leave me

Love, it can deceive you
Love is trying to break you down again

Time could tell, none of what you want to believe in me
So I'll leave you before you can leave me
I'll leave you
Track Name: Diana, Don't Be Late
"DIANA, DON'T BE LATE"

Diana don't be late
Don't miss the train
Don't wait - to find what you need
In time - you will feel safe, I promise

Our fathers make mistakes
Our mothers tend the weight
More than we know
To give us a fighting chance

Still I rather not know when you've fallen for somebody new
but I'm happy for you...

We remember how it feels
We give it some time, the pattern reveals
Through even an all time low
We find our way out

Somewhere down the road
With a look of one smile
I'll know - when I see you face to face
I'll see that you're safe, Diana

But I rather not know that you've fallen for somebody new
Who was better for you...
Track Name: Enough to Drive Me Mad
"ENOUGH TO DRIVE ME MAD"

Of all the games you could play
Why choose this for me?
You spur the heart, oh my soul
I just thought that you should know
You are one complicated kind
But furthermore, what's done is done
And I prefer to live the lie

I guess want this pretty bad
Enough to drive me mad
I guess I want this more than you do
Hell, you won't even try
I might be holding on too strong
But it's all that I know
I really want to get you back, but I can't

She seemed not the least bit worried
I cannot explain how she got out
And now I want her even more

I guess want this pretty bad
Enough to drive me mad
I guess want this more than you do
Hell, you won't even try
I might be holding on too strong
But it's all that I know
I really want to get you back

But I can't undo the past
And I want you to myself
I know it's selfish but it kills me to see you with someone else

I guess I want you pretty bad
Enough to drive me mad
I guess I want this more than you do
Hell, you won't even try
I might be holding on too strong
But I know what I want
I really want to get you back
Track Name: Hush Now, Baby
"HUSH NOW, BABY"

I will hold you in my arms
Lay your head to rest
I will keep you safe from harm
So hush now, baby

Don't cry
Baby, don't cry tonight
Look where you are
You're safe in my arms
So don't cry tonight

You have made our house a home
You can stay for life
Your mother loves the way you smile
And so do I
So hush now, baby

Don't cry
Baby, don't cry tonight
We'll always be here
There's nothing to fear
So don't cry tonight

Someday you'll see
What all of this means

But hush now, baby
Hush now, baby
Hush now, baby
Don't cry
Don't cry

Baby, don't cry
Baby, don't cry tonight
You've given us love
And more than enough
So don't cry tonight
Don't cry
Don't cry

Hush now, baby
Track Name: Goodbye, CA
"GOODBYE, CA"

Goodbye California, after 9 long years of playing by your rules
You'd think I'd have a clue
I might miss the ocean if I cared to make that fifteen minute drive
But I hardly made the time

I'l be on my way, gone today
In a way I always knew this day would come
When you don't belong, then move along
Try to get back all the years you may have lost
Hey, you might be better off

Careful what you wish for, you might suffer from the moment you arrive
If you don't watch out for the lies
And pay your parking meters and 10 dollars for a beer at most the bars
With all them fancy cars

I'll be on my way, gone today
In a way I always knew this day would come
When you don't belong, then move along
Try to get back all the years you may have lost
Hey, you might be better off

On your own, lost...
When you're lost, call

Goodbye California, I guess a memory of you will have to do
From a foreign point of view
And to the friends that I believe in, now I understand why you can't come along
but that's another song

So goodbye, California
