about

"CHILDREN OF THE SUMMER" is the direct result of two years of collaboration between Melinda Hershey and Josh Whelchel (www.jwmusic.org). Much of the music on this album is inspired by video game music, and therefore we like to consider this vgm-inspired pop.

Track Name: I Love You
Toss and turn and clock and floor
Pavement, shut the door - havin' less and wantin' more
Stop and go and give and take,
Shutin' and bend and break
Don't speak, just shake, shake, shake, shake

So come on now, you've got to (got to) know by now
Come on now, your silence is a sound and I'm readin' ya, needin' ya to be a little louder
This ain't no game I'm gonna play with ya girl because I love ya (love ya)
We've intertwined; we're one on one world war because I need ya, breathe ya

I love you

Hold on, less speed, less want, more need,
Have and hold and starve and feed
Breathe and blink and sweat and skin,
Grow and change and lose and win, let me in
Track Name: Don't Stop
These games we play, they go on for days
I need no reasons to keep on feelin' this way (oh)
Don't have to tell me that you feel the same,
Just rock me good girl, let the beat drop where it may, 'cause

This shit don't last forever,
Come on let's make it better,
We gotta whole lot of work to do tonight

I've got ya where I want ya,
Can't just keep spyin' on ya
You know I want ya on top, don't stop, tonight!

The way you swing those hips,
I wanna bite your lips,
I'll make ya pop so let's drop this beat tonight!

You got me goin' I can't even explain,
I just can't seem to get ya up off my brain,
There ain't no reason not to cut to the chase,
So rock me good, boy, can you keep up the pace

I hear ya baby and I'm ready to go,
I've had enough of takin' it slow
So put it on me 'cause I'm ready to know,
I'll make ya (uh) girl, until ya want some more

I'm talkin' don't stop,
The way you're movin's got me goin' insane

You know you got it I can be what ya need,
So come home with me

Just let me drop this, ooh

Drop this
Forever, better, let's drop this beat tonight
Track Name: Pull Me Under
Get out of my skin boy,
Why’d I let you in boy,
I’m outta control

Caught up in your game,
I guess I’m only to blame
That you’ve ignited my soul

‘cause you’re like fire
You burn me down to the ground
You’re like a ghost baby,
I see when you’re not around

Every little time I think it’s safe to come out,
You pull me under,
And it’s makin’ me shout!

I’m not gonna pretend,
I really wish it would end,
But that’s easier said than done

‘cause you cut like a knife
You’ve taken over my life,
I hope your happy you won

Now I’m locked in a cage
I thought this all was a stage
But you got me so good

I’m so out of my mind,
Wish I could go back in time,
Now that I’ve understood

Get out from under my skin,
I never should have let you in,
I’m gonna shake sh-shake ya,
When I find myself again

'cause you’re like fire,
Like a ghost

You pull me under,
I burn, burn, burn (when you’re not around),
Every little time,
You’re like fire, yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Glitch Addiction
Where'd you get them feet?
(Oh doctor, doctor, no!)

C-A-Y-U-T-I yo swagger got me hypnotized,
Your N-O-G, move it with your T-H-I,
G-H-S, no stress, shake it barbie doll,
Jerk yourself around a bit and make that baby crawl

Get ya, get ya, get ya Glitch Addiction,
Fill your needles up with the Glitch Addiction, yeah!
Your baby girl has got the Glitch Addiction,
For the pain I'd get some Glitch Addiction

Shortie's movin' with a glitch, glitch, pop and lock, yea
Makin' rounds up in the club, girl, where ya from?
One more round but this night has just begun,
The lights go out the music drops

(yes, it's very very bad)
Track Name: Fever (the Four Loko song)
You've got me wastin' all my time and energy,
I hesitated now I've lost control
This club is hazy but flarin' up from the dance floor,
ya crave the taste of me so one more shot and down we go

What goes up must come down,
What goes up must come down,
(let the fever take over)
You nail me down like a fever livin' deep in the ground

I'm about as loko as any boy you've ever known girl,
I ride that liquid buzz like Tony Hawk on EX!
Maybe my heart's just thumpin' but two of you is not enough,
We gotta up the dose, so hold me close, (SUM DOS E DOS)

Let the fever take over back to my bed
and tell me 'bout nasty thoughts the loko put in yo head
Track Name: Children of the Summer
We got the heat disease, no pants no sleeves,
When we're in the shade it's 500 degrees,
So lose your three piece suit, let's storm the roof,
where we passin' that bottle of 100 proof

Children of the, yeah we're children of the

'cuz we're rock stars, children of the summer,
When the sun's up you know that we be runnin'
'cuz we're invicinible, you'll us touching the sky
We'll spread our wings when we'll fly (fly, fly)

Get wet, drip sweat, we ready to run
Gettin' down we don't come out 'till the rise of the sun
So bow down now, give me all that you got,
You gotta prove yourself 'cuz this beat's so hot

Children of the, yeah we're children of the

'cuz we're rock stars, children of the summer,
When the sun's up you know that we be runnin'
'cuz we're invicinible, you'll us touching the sky
We'll spread our wings when we'll fly (fly, fly)
Track Name: Forever, Young Rachel (feat. David Saulesco)
Far off the edge of time and space eternal
I see those days, long to see your face
Your absent smile, scorched in frozen flame
yet I'll still call out your name

Forever young Rachel, the sun shall set before you
And the stars will take this chance to forever keep your hand
You'll awake in the flame of our embrace

Step in the light and bathe in all you've wanted
I'll wait for you, let's start this time anew
Your absent smile, scorched in frozen flame
Yet I'll still call out your name

I never knew, I harbored a love, as deep as this love that burns for you
What good is this life, if it can't be spent the way that I'd like, with you as my wife
The moon may be pale and bleak but my feelings for you will never ever grow weak
Track Name: Your Name (feat. Martha Mingle)
Footprints out the backdoor - the snow gives you away,
Where'd you go I'd like to know I'm not the only one awake.

And you, oh your name is a place, is a place,
And you, oh your name is a place to me.

Your silence casts a shadow, the void locks it away,
Where'd you go I'd like to know I'm not the only one awake.

And you, oh your name is a place, is a place,
And you, oh your name is a place to me.

I'm gonna pack you away, you're gettin' further everyday but I won't call out your name,
I wanna thank you, you've made me mad enough, sad enough to put you in your rightful place.

Your silence casts a shadow, the void locks it away,
Where'd you go I'd like to know I'm not the only one awake.

You, oh your name is a place, is a place,
And you, oh your name is a place to m
Track Name: Shine Tonight
you know what i need,
some time away to get some air
i just can’t stay

you know what i think,
i oughta be chasing my dreams and you’re bringin’ me down
i’ve lost my way

she’s like the stars above
you know she’ll burn in your heart forever
she sings her song and she will

shine tonight
she’ll light up the whole sky like fire
when her heart sings out she’ll know

you know what i miss
those days they were just you and me
they’ve got me holdin’ on to those fragments of my memory

and girl, you know what i wish
that you were missin’ me and longin’ for my kiss

and then she’ll see, she’s never been so sure
she wipes away the tears that set her free
and i can see, you’ll never be that sure of me
so wipe away your tears and we can be

like the stars above,
you know you’ll burn in my heart forever
so hear my song and we will

shine tonight,
we’ll light up the whole sky just like fire you and me
so sing your heart baby please

(you say you lost your way but i’ll never leave your side
you got me tangled and i know i want you mine
you say you lost your way girl, you say you lost way
just look to the sky and you’ll see me shine

we’ll light the sky ablaze and sing our song they’ll hear
our voices carry on our passion it knows no fear
and when you say you just don’t know
you’ll look and you’ll see me)
Track Name: Power of the Meat (from SUPER MEAT BOY!)
Save me, Meat

My name is Dr. Fetus, PhD
I see you lack some skin, boy, which is quite fine by me
Your girl is quite fair, oh, she's an anomaly
So the bandages come off, baby, what cha' hiding

Save me, Meat Boy, you're the one that I need,
Dr. Fetus, he can't beat us, but he's makin' ya bleed!
So won't you save me, boy, I know you got what it takes,
It's the hour, use your power and come help save the day!

I will save you, Bandage Girl
You won't have to fear no more!
Take my hand and you will see
Behold the Power of the Meat!

I lined the walls with my robotic saws
Don't you wish you had some fingers with which left to crawl
Now I know what you're thinking, "For a fetus, he's quite smart"
Well, when your blood paints these walls, I'll call it work of art!

Save me, boy, I know you got what it takes,
It's the hour, use your power and come help save the day!

Take my hand and you will see
Behold the Power of the Meat!
