about

"Hey Liebe" is the debut album of San Francisco singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Girl Named T. At the age of 19, she, along with Bay Area producer/engineer Mike Walti, set up in a warehouse in West Oakland and recorded "Hey Liebe", a collection of ten original songs mostly about bittersweet romance and disillusion. Other than a few musical guests lending their sweet talents to the mix (Steve Taylor from Rogue Wave; Chris Solberg from Santana, Eddie Money, and others), all instruments were performed by T.

Track Name: Beautiful
i found you on the street last night

sitting on a mailbox in a lotus pose

where the ageless boy grows

you were shouting into the sky

lit a match and held it under your throat

while i cried, no don't



everybody is looking for some kind of love

and it never will be who you were thinking of



tell me what you don’t know, is it what you’re gonna say

wherever your mind goes whoever cares anyway



watch her go, watch her go

leaving from the outside like you don’t know

watch her turn around and leave

like you don’t believe

watch her go, watch her go

and I wanna make sure that you know

you’re beautiful, beautiful to me



mary had a little friend

she brought him to your rock show on a Friday night

and I watched you die inside



but there will be another one (‘nother one)

stay alive keep your pride on the path of the rising sun

that’s where she’s coming from



everybody is looking for someone to save them

but it’s never gonna be when you arrange it



tell me what you don’t know, is it what you’re gonna say

wherever your mind goes, whoever cares anyway



watch her go, watch her go

leaving from the outside like you don’t know

watch her turn around and leave

like you don’t believe

watch her go, watch her go

and I wanna make sure that you know

You’re beautiful, beautiful

watch her go, watch her go

leaving from the outside like you don’t know

watch her go, watch her go

leaving from the outside like you don’t know

Watch her go, watch her go, and I hope that you see

You’re beautiful, beautiful to me
Track Name: White Lies
I am furious

I really believed in us

And i believed you when you said it’s real

All the silly people don’t know how we feel

We’re different



No don’t show me the mirror now

When that idiot is looking out

She still thinks that things can turn out right

All the silly people gonna lose their minds

They snap their fingers

Let it linger



White lies

We walk between

White lies

You all can see so

Why can’t I, why oh why can’t I?



You better turn me loose

My heart is empty as a noose

Oh but put down your weapon baby don’t be mad

Think about the good times that we had

We danced all day, laughing away those



White lies

We walk between

White lies

You all can see so

Why can’t I, why oh why,



why all the white lies?
Track Name: Need Me Tonight
Your kind of quiet keeps me up all night

It gets me movin in the Moonlight

I get excited when you try and hide it cuz

I know you need me tonight



I’m gettin tired of that voice in your head

Sayin that you’d be better off alone instead

And your excuses are a waste of my time cuz

I know you need me tonight



I know you need me tonight

Oh, you waited outside

And Hannah’s getting hers right now,

I got a feelin it will turn out right,

When 6 8 9



I like you in leather

Lick my hand, let’s get together

You never gav me that kiss

I made a promise and I left it on your list

It went a little like this



Say you love me, tell me you do

Tell me you need me

Like I been needing you that’s right,

I’ll spill my ribbons til I’m ghostly and white

I’ll never leave you, just say I need you



I know you need me tonight

Oh, you waited outside

And Danny’s getting his right now,

I got a feelin it will turn out right,

When 6 8 9



You get me goin when the world moves slow

You get me goin when i got nowhere to go at night

I follow you until you’re outta my sight

Say you need me, say you, say you
Track Name: Dresden Dreaming
dresden dreaming, dresden dreaming without you

dresden dreaming, dresden dreaming all about you

I’m dressed in linen, and the city surrounds you

And it’s true here with you



lately im feeling incomplete

and though my friends are acting sweet

they look at me like

"where are you going?"



then the cathedral lights explode

the elbe river overflows

and i'm washed away

without ever knowing

my loves unfolding



dresden dreaming, dresden dreaming without you

dresden dreaming, dresden dreaming all about you

I’m dressed in linen, and the city surrounds you

Can’t you see, you’re heavenly to me

And it’s true, heaven is here with you
Track Name: Hey Love
That word you call i fall into the dream again

Some kind of trick thats all but i let it in

I’m your only friend, oh, you’re lonely pet



Close words don’t always show me the way you feel

Break them on me i make them into something real

That’s just the way I feel, oh, if you’re really really real



Hey love, can you hear me?

I can feel you round the clock, baby right now

Hey love, i want you to reach me

When you’re in the air, and I’m on the ground



How could you know me and say things that lovers say

Your thoughtless words could cause me to run away

Try to get away, but follow you to a lonely place



Hey love, can you hear me?

I can feel you round the clock, baby right now

Hey love, i want you to reach me

When you’re in the air, and I’m on the ground

Hey love, hey love,

When you’re in the air, and I’m on the ground

My words my words will pull you down

When you’re in the air, and I’m on the ground

My words my words will calm you down

From the stratosphere, they will bring you

Down, down, down
Track Name: Model in the Media
She’s a match head, model in the media,

Turns elastic when nobody is feedin her

You want to touch her, to tell her hello

But she’s holding onto something and she just won’t let go



She’s got her own page facin to a dyin fad

Wanted to fix it but her midsection was hurtin bad

You want to steal her, to make her your dream

But baby’s made of paper and she’ll never feel

Blank paper never feels a thing



Model in the Media, Model in the Media

She’s just Modelin the Media, Model in the Media



I had a friend once hangin on your bedroom wall

She got offended and took a pill to fight them off

Now she’s fishin for her sanity

A tiny little minnow in the middle of the big sea



Model zombie wandering the mental ward

It’s so alarming the girl was only 24

She took her picture and gave it to me

Now everybody followin me, hounding me down

Tear it out, asking me if I seen



Model in the Media, Model in the Media

She’s just Modelin the Media, Model in the Media

She’s just Modelin the Media

Just a Model in the Media

She’s just Model in the Media

Model in the Media



Baby, made me wanna hold ya,

Hold ya, barely even know ya

Baby, make me wanna hold ya

Make me wanna hold ya



But if she turns around,

You’ll be right there right there

Make your old man proud,

You make your man so proud



Model in the Media, Model in the Media

She’s just Modelin the Media, Model in the Media

She’s just Modelin the Media

Just a Model in the Media

She’s just Model in the Media

Model in the Media
Track Name: Bellissima
You took your body off, put it on a tray

You got your mommy on, say what you wanna say



If you really wanna hold me

I got something i can show you

If you really wanna, wanna, wanna, here we go

Are they yours, are they ours?

And the city’s all, the city’s all yours



If you really wanna hold me

If you really wanna, wanna, I wanna

You got your make up, got tomorrow off and

You got your make up, you got your body

Cuz you’re pretty, you;re pretty, you’re pretty, bellissima
Track Name: Do It Now
I’m facin a new direction

My head in the ground

I was lookin for someone new and

Then you came around



And you’re lookin like pure perfection

Though you’re never around

Come on baby, take a chance on me

We can go where the sun does, so



Do it now



Sweet Orion where you been hidin,

I’m ready to go

I see you up there your lips unwinding

You wanna let me know



You’re facing a new direction

Facing, facing with no regrets and

You got me runnin through maze of hell

And there is fire all around, so



Do it now



There’s something coming

Its coming now coming now

There’s nothing, no one

It’s running out running out

So if you find it you will know what

Know what it’s about



Just do it now
Track Name: Green
Sweet sweet little thing
So young and green
You're just the sweetest thing
I've ever seen
You hypnotize me
And now I'm turning green

I've got to warn you babe,
You're gonna grow
Into the cruelest thing
I'll ever know, but
Until that day, dear,
Let's watch the magic grow

I could love you till my heart is dust, dear,
Holding you I find a different state of mind, oh,
I know that you'll probly cause me problems
I've raised you like my own, but all this time I've known that

You break my heart, dear,
And leave my body green

You may not see it now,
But there will be
A day you realize you're too
Big for me and,
You'll see the truth, dear,
And run away from me

I could love you till I'm on the cross, dear,
Holding you I see a bright reality, oh,
I know that you're going to desert me
I've raised you like my own, but all this time I've known that

You'll break my heart, dear,
And leave my body green
Track Name: o can i
o can i

take a walk in your mind

there's something that i'd just like to find

before it all goes wrong



o can i

drag your bleeding heart to the light

make you believe with no doubt inside

i loved you all along



su su, you cried to me

is it enough to let you believe?

su su, you lied to me,

is it enough to let you believe?

su su, you cried to me



o can i

pull away the clouds from your eyes

roll them into big beds of light

where we don't hide a word



how can you

forgive me for the things that i've done

i've been selfish, thinking of no one

trying not to get hurt



su su, you cried to me

is it enough to let you believe?

su su, you lied to me,

is it enough, no, never enough no no

su su, I love you, love you

Can i, can i, can i?
