lyrics

Original Voice
sometimes it’s hard to put sentences together
or simply a pair of words
it’s tough to stop the malaprops and repeating all those
stories that you’ve heard

this is the sound of you phoning it in
gotta get your head right before you call again
there’s always that turn of phrase that dizzy joy
bringing back your original voice

you used to be the clever-comeback-queen
it’s coming out mean are you wandering
the enchanted woods of obscurity
for the security of no being head or seen

this is the sound of you phoning it in
gotta get your head straight before you try again
there’s always that turn of phrase that giddy joy
bringing back your original voice

it’s hard to get a word in
it can become a burden
trying to prove you’re certain

how can you sing with all this perfume
hanging in the air in nostalgia’s homesick room
and who can salvage what can’t be preserved
you’re not doing yourself favors being so reserved

this is the sound of you phoning it in
gotta get your head right before you call again
there’s always that turn of phrase that dizzy joy
bringing back your original voice
there’s something more than your original voice
bringing back your original voice

Goggy Oakland, California

"An art-pop mix of sly songcraft and production savvy"

Goggy is the side-project of keyboardist/
singer-sonwriter Margrit Eichler (of the bay area trio, True Margrit). in the studio Goggy is just Margrit tinkering away, until her cats Luc and Freddi purr approval. But onstage Goggy is Margrit, Nick O'Connor (of Sweet Peaches) and Pam Delgado (of Blame Sally).
