Josefina Chicago, Illinois

Josefina is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago, originally from Buenos Aires. Her lush vocal stylings pair with alt- country production full of piano, acoustic guitars, B-bender and 12-string that would have found an easy home on Asylum Records in the 1970s.

Track Name: I'll Soon Be Walking
Big city with the young girls walking,
I've been wearing dirty shirts and stockings,
I got 35 cents in my pocket,
But that won't quite cut it for laundry day,
Yeah, I got no money,
But that's okay.

'Cause I'm living where the moon is shining
Through the pouring rain,
Stay up all night, sleep half the day.
Yeah I'm living where the hills are shining
Under sunny rays,
Don't need anybody making any shade.

And it's hard to say
If he's worth wanting,
He never pays
And does too much talking,
And if he stays,
Well, I'll soon be walking anyway.

I keep roaming around, keep rambling,
These random roommates are like gambling,
I could always move back with the family,
But I'll just keep wandering from place to place,
Yeah, I got no remedy,
But that's okay.

'Cause I'm living where the moon is shining
Through the pouring rain,
Stay up all night, sleep half the day.
Yeah I'm living where the hills are shining
Under sunny rays,
Don't need anybody making any shade.

And it's hard to say
If he's worth wanting,
He never pays
And does too much talking,
And if he stays,
Well, I'll soon be walking anyway.

And I know you say you want me,
But I just don't feel the same.
And I know you say you love me,
But I'm just sitting in the car unfazed.

And it's hard to say
If he's worth wanting,
He never pays
And does too much talking,
And if he stays,
I'll soon be walking,
He does too much talking,
I'll soon be walking anyway.
Track Name: Starry Dome
When people ask,
They say they met at someone's party,
It was a summer night, Chicago '94,
His smile was blooming bright,
Her laugh was loud and hearty,
They stole a bottle and were off to Montrose.

Patiently they waited for the sight of the sun,
Asking questions to try to know how to please the other one,
And beneath this starry dome,
They felt at home.

With help from wine and cigarettes, they were in a trance,
with bare feet in sand, for his hand she reached.
It'd been a long while since he'd been asked to slow dance,
Their only soundtrack was the waves on the beach.

Patiently they waited for the sight of the sun,
Asking questions to try to know how to please the other one,
And beneath this starry dome,
They felt at home.

They still go back sometimes and sit beside the harbor,
It makes them feel like nothing much has really changed.
He's a little balder now, her middle's rounder,
But her laugh, it's still the same.

Patiently they waited for the sight of the sun,
Asking questions to try to know how to please the other one,
And beneath this starry dome,
They felt at home,
They felt at home,
Starry dome.
Track Name: Run, Cowboy, Run
I'm heading out and the night is young,
I'm in the mood to have a little fun,
I take a hit and I powder my nose,
I put my favorite little red dress on.

Go to the bar, give the tender a call,
Elvis Presley ringing in the air,
Look at the box, see who turned it on,
It's the cowboy with the sandy hair.

Run, little cowboy, run,
Run until you see the sun.

Before I know, there's a crowd watching
As we dance on the center floor,
One kiss and a look in his eyes,
And I'm certain I'll be wanting more.

Go to the ladies' with a drink in my hand,
Check on my makeup and my falling curls,
Return again to find my cowboy making out with another girl.

Run, little cowboy, run,
Run until you see the sun.
Run, little cowboy, run,
Run until you see the sun.

Well, he must not know he's messing with the wrong girl,
Yeah, I'm rounding up my boys,
We're gonna show that cowboy what he deserves.

Now he's leaving and the girl is waiting
As he's putting on his leather coat,
Just then riding 'round the corner come Mike, Ray, Jimmy, and Joe.

We circle 'round with him with our fists in our palms,
And our pistols loaded at our sides,
That's all it took for that cowboy to run into the desert night.

Run, little cowboy, run,
Run until you see the sun.
Everybody now!
Run, little cowboy, run,
Run until you see the sun,
Run until you see the sun,
Run until you see the sun.
Track Name: Chevy '73
Just you, me, and the road,
A couple in a Chevy '73,
Got nothing more than clothes,
A camera, and a loaf of bread to eat,
We left our friends a note,
Don't worry where we're going,
We're leaving the city,
Need a little time away from home.

We're following the winds of whimsy now,
A silhouette of something beautiful,
We don't know exactly what it is we're searching for,
But we know it's not at home.

We pulled over to see
If we could find ourselves a stream to wash our feet,
I stood among the flowers,
You told me I was the prettiest girl you'd seen,
We made love in the dark,
To the sounds of the meadowlark,
Far from the city,
Needed a little time away from home.

We're following the winds of whimsy now,
A silhouette of something beautiful,
We don't know exactly what it is we're searching for,
But we know it's not at home.

We're following the winds of whimsy now,
A silhouette of something beautiful,
We don't know exactly what it is we're searching for,
But we know it's not at home.

It's just you, me, and the road,
A couple in a Chevy '73.
Track Name: Doing Alright On My Own
Have you ever met a girl in your whole life who didn't want you?
And have you ever met a girl in your whole life who didn't need you?
Well, spending all night and day with you is driving me insane,
There's never a sunny day with you,
No, it's always rain.

And you're trying to lift me up with these changes,
But I've been doing alright on my own,
Yeah, you're trying to lift me up with these changes,
But I've been doing alright on my own.

I ain't ever met a guy who's so caught up in his own ego,
And I ain't ever met a guy who can't catch up with his own mouth,
Everything that I say to you is promptly ignored,
Maybe you'll hear when I say it's through,
That I'm cutting the cord.

'Cause you're trying to lift me up with these changes,
But I've been doing alright on my own,
Yeah, you're trying to lift me up with these changes,
But I've been doing alright on my own.

Not a thing that I think about
Gives me reason to stay,
Everything that I dream about
Has you out of my way.

'Cause you're trying to lift me up with these changes,
But I've been doing alright on my own,
Yeah, you're trying to lift me up with these changes,
But I've been doing alright on my own,
Yeah, I've been doing alright on my own,
I've been doing alright on my own.
Track Name: Modern Girl
He grew up romantic with a mother who left him letters,
Written in an ink dipped feather, full of poems and prose
He grew up pedantic with a father having all the answers,
Reading his books and articles until the day's close.

When he wandered out, he was looking for love, like anyone,
What he didn't plan on was to fall in love with a modern girl.

He knows the way to her heart is complicated,
And he knows his intention to court is antiquated,
And sure, he'd be better off pursuing one of those other girls,
But he wants one of the modern girls.

He takes her out dancing, but she wants to hear the hits from the radio,
She doesn't like his British Invasion or his dusty old soul.
She’s dressed so fancy and she’s caught up in the texting and the picture taking,
Makes him look a little outdated and as pale as a ghost.

When he took her out, he was hoping for love like anyone,
What he didn't plan on was to fall for a girl he didn’t like at all.

He knows the way to her heart is complicated,
And he knows his intention to court is antiquated,
And sure, he'd be better off pursuing one of those other girls,
But he wants one of the modern girls.

They say you can count on attraction of opposites,
For magnets and batteries, well that's how it works,
But people, they have to have something in common,
And these two were living in separate worlds.

He knows the way to her heart is complicated,
And he knows his intention to court is antiquated,
And sure, he'd be better off pursuing one of those other girls,
But he wants, yeah, he wants, yeah, he wants one of the modern girls.
Track Name: Summertime
Summertime,
What will it be for you?
Summertime,
How will you see it through?

Will it pass on swiftly like a little breeze you hardly felt at all?
Will it linger in your mind as long as light before the evening falls?

Summertime,
That's when I met you, dear,
Summertime,
Everything was sincere,

And you swept me off my feet without so much as any warning,
And we heard the wolves outside the tent and held each other,
All the way until the morning.

Summertime, summertime, summertime, summertime, summertime

Summertime,
What will it be for you?
Summertime,
How will you see it through?
