about

Rachel Kaplus Woodstock, Georgia

Oh hi! I'm based out of North Georgia, where there's not much else to do BUT music most of the time. I write songs, cover songs, dream about songs, scream songs and cry to songs.
All my material tends to be about heartache or temporary lack of heartache.
I love you, too.

Track Name: Writer's Block
How do I do this again?
I forget how to write when I'm not fuckin miserable, so
I'm tryin every trick in the book...
But my head's havin none of that- none of that, and
All the coffee in the word
's not helpin, not helpin
And all the beers that I can drink
Not workin, not workin and
I was trying to write a song,
But I'm circlin circlin,
Cause all I really want is you -
So give me something good to sing about
Cause I can't seem to get the lyrics down
I only write bout what I know,
Baby won't you show me some inspiration?
Why don't you tell me how it's gonna be?
A little story about you and me -
I know that if we take our time
Things'll turn out fine
I'll get some motivation..
Now I'm back at the start
With one verse down and one to go
So let me break it down for you
cause there's some things that you should know -
like you should know that
All the "you"'s in my songs ARE you
But you knew that, you knew that and
When I'm lyin next to you, oh
it feels perfect, feels perfect and
Whatever this ends up costing me
it was worth it, it's worth it and
Did I say how bad I want you?
So give me something good to sing about
Cause I can't seem to get the lyrics down
I only write bout what I know
Baby won't you show me some inspiration?
Why don't you tell me how it's gonna be?
A little story about you and me
I know that if we take our time
Things'll turn out fine
I'll get some motivation
Oh just gimme something good to sing about
Cause I just can't get a lyric down
I only write bout what I know
Baby please show me inspiration
Why don't you tell me how it's gonna be?
Make up a story about you and me
I know that if we take our time
Things'll turn out fine
Baby you'll be mine....
Track Name: Drunk Again
Well now I'm drunk again
and I'm callin you
but every word I say
makes me feel like a fool
and it's not like there was no one else
that I could turn to..
I just wanted you
Well I'm no good at innuendos
and anyway, this ain't that kind of song
all I know is that when I'm with you
it feels too good for somethin not to go wrong
but we won't talk about that -
hell, we don't talk about much at all
but that don't mean that I wanna stop
I just didn't mean to care so hard
so now I'm drunk again
and I'm callin you
but every word you say
makes me feel like a fool
yeah and I know there's someone else
I should be runnin to
but I just wanted you
I got no reason to be jealous
when I know we haven't made any promises
and I wasn't even tryin to find out
I just heard it from one of your friends
but now it's got me wonderin
just what she gives ya that I ain't got
but I don't wanna know
her name or what she's like
yeah, and I sure don't wanna know
just what the hell I did last night
but I was probably drunk again
yeah, and I bet that called you
I sure don't need nobody's help
to make me look like a fool
yeah and I know there's someone else
that you tuen to
but I just wanted you...
I just wanted you.
so now it's 10 a.m.
I'm wakin up in yer bed
so much I could say to you
but it's gotta stay in my head
but baby there's no one else
I want to go to-
I just wanted you
Yeah and I still do...
I just wanted you.
Track Name: August
It don't feel wrong
it just feels like somethin else
is pullin me along
and I can't help myself
and it don't feel like years -
it feels more like yesterday
that we were right here
so why don't I know what to say?
cause it's true that with you I'll never learn my lesson-
fall too hard, fall apart and end up just regrettin
why should I be surprised that I can't see where we're headed?
Or how it's gonna go with you -
but I still wanna be with you..
spent a week in your bed
but feel like I haven't slept in days
so how can I trust my own head?
never been good at that anyway
and I know it was me
who said that we should just go slow
turns out that's not what I mean
so i guess I'll just let you know
that I won't lie and deny that this means anything-
if that were true why would still be wrapped around my brain?
I'm a master of mixed signals so here's one loud and plain
I said I only wanna be with you
yeah, I just wanna be with you
no it don't feel wrong
it feels like somethin else
is pullin me along
and I can't help myself...
Track Name: Whatever With You
Is it chemical?
I'm damn sure that it's physical
whatever it is that it is that's goin on with you
maybe I think too much
or maybe I just didn't think enough
before gettin it in gettin into whatever this is with you
wasn't all that long ago I was happy on my own
wasn't all that long ago I never ever even picked up the phone
but now when you don't call I'm climbin up the walls
man, how'd it ever even get this far?
my bed don't feel like mine cause I'm too used to yours
but I try it anyway I pull the covers up and close the doors
but all I dream about is bein in your arms
you'd think I'd never been here before
Is it chemical?
I'm damn sure that it's physical
whatever it is that it is that's goin on with you
maybe I think too much
or maybe I just didn't think enough
before gettin it in gettin into whatever this is with you
I know there's probably better ways that I could spend my time
it's just that nothin else ever seems to come to mind
only place I wanna be is sitting by yer side
wish there was a way to turn this off
so I sit down to write a song bout somethin new,
but no matter how they start they all end up about it
now there's a whole damn album bout how I've got it bad
and I don't even know where to start
but don't let me waste it
don't you let me be wasted
once I fall in I can't just fall out
don't let me waste it
Aw, so is it chemical?
I'm damn sure that it's physical
whatever it is that it is that's goin on with you
maybe I think too much
or maybe I just didn't think enough
before gettin it in gettin into whatever this is with you
Track Name: No Time
Well it was months before I called you back
but maybe I'm not as busy as I like to act...
my nights were like: sleep practicewrite repeat
but baby you know that's alright with me
cause if I don't have time to waste
then I don't have time to be sorry
if I don't have time to spare
i don't have to care bout tomorrow
I don't have time for you
so I don't have time to be scared now
but you took me by surprise
I didn't want to know, I didn't want to
look into your eyes
cause then I knew that I'd be done for
I didn't realize
how many stupid rhymes I could come up with
you took me by surprise
why don't you let me go by surprise too, honey
Well you know I think we've been here before
a year, a life ago who knows for sure
just what that I knew what part happens next
but I'm too busy with these preregrets..
cause if I don't have time to waste
cause if I don't have time to waste
then I don't have time to be sorry
if I don't have time to spare
i don't have to care bout tomorrow
I don't have time for you
so I don't have time to be scared now
but you took me by surprise
I didn't want to know, I didn't want to
look into your eyes
cause then I knew that I'd be done for
I didn't realize
how many stupid rhymes I could come up with
you took me by surprise
why don't you let me go by surprise too, honey
Come on and let me go by surpise now honey
but baby listen up, cause this part is true
my days are just killin time till I'm with you
and I'm sorry if it's too much too fast too soon
but there ain't really nothin else that I can do
my days are just killin time till I'm with you
and I'm sorry if it's too much too fast too soon
but there ain't really nothin else that I can do
my days are just killin time till I'm with you
and I'm sorry if it's too much too fast too soon
but there ain't really nothin else that I can do
Cause you took me by surprise
I didn't want to know, I didn't want to
look into your eyes
cause then I knew that I'd be done for
I didn't realize
how many stupid rhymes I could come up with
you took me by surprise
why don't you let me go by surprise too, honey
Come on and let me go by surpise now honey
cause I don't want to see it comin, no
Track Name: Reason Why
There's a reason why I won't be callin back
it's the same one why tonight I can't put down the glass
when I don't trust myself enough to ever get it right
and I don't owe myself enough to wanna try and fight
cause anything in me that you might love
it's just reflections of someone else that I thought
might be good enough
but she's not me.
and she's not here.
so go on out the door - you don't wanna see me clear
there's a reason why I take more than is good for me
when right and wrong get blurred so fast, aw you would not believe
like when I wake up coughin desperately
and then go straight for the cigarettes
or how I wake up lonely when you're next to me-
I don't know why I'm not leavin yet
or how I lay myself down at your feet
just beggin to be runover some
or how I get so dunk that I can't see,
still screamin "pour me another one!"
it's cause there's no good in me left to be found
it's just regrest and bad habits that I just can't
put down
yeah, and I may love you -a little- now, I won't deny
but who knows how long it's gonna be before I just
decide
it's easier alone
hell, at least now you know
so get on outta here, I ain't gonna watch you go
Track Name: Onion Song
Well Angela's up in Jasper
and I'm down here by the river, but
she's thinkin about me writin a song about writin a song about-
stop
see I've got friends all over
so I don't need you lover, but
I sure won't mind it
if you come over
come on over
see I don't care anymore
if you stay or stowaway, so
just start callin
call on over
come on over
yeah, i care anymroe
if you're leavin or you've left, so
I'll start callin
call on over
come on over
spent a whole day off on the sofa
I could go outside, but why bother cause
in or out you're on my mind you're in my mouth-
wait
sometimes I say what I don't mean, and
sometimes I mean what I don't say, and
I'm sorry if it
gets confusing
but I'm not sorry
see I don't care anymore
if you stay or stowaway, so
just start callin
call on over
come on over
yeah, i care anymroe
if you're leavin or you've left, so
I'll start callin
call on over
come on over
but where did this song even come from?
cause I can't follow the train of though
I feel like there was a point when I started
but the meaning's gotten lost
so I'll wrap up in a minute
and i won't be sorry to finish this
song about just singin a song bout writin a song bout writin a song bout singin a song....
Track Name: Change
What did I get? like 5 new songs
it's not that bad when you think about it
and yeah I guess you did me wrong
but I don't mind till I think about it
time after time things'll end up the same
why is so hard to find out nothin really changes?
nothin'll change
that's what I get for lettin down
my guard again like I know I shouldn't
and yeah I know you're still around
if we decide to try this thing again, but
time after time it'll end up the same
what's it gonna take for us to see that nothin changes?
and I don't know why it's gotta be this way
I only know we're never ever gonna feel the same way
at the same time
and time after time I'll just get it all wrong
if only talkin to you was easy as writin this song...
at least I got these 5 new songs
it's 5 times more then I had when I started
and maybe you did nothin wrong
I just set myself up for disappointment
time after time I'll just throw it away
lookin all around for someone else to take the blame
and I get so tired of just wonderin why
nothin's workin out I guess I finally better try
to learn from mistakes not invite em back in,
till then when I see you round I guess I'll just pretend
that nothin changed
Track Name: Heart Trouble
Well I've got heart trouble
and it's caused by you
you stepped right on it
broke it in two
oh, now I've got a heart problem
cause it don't beat right
it keeps leadin me back to yer door night after night
Now you only call me at 3 a.m.
you ask me what I'm doin, and I say sleepin
cause you only want me when no one else'll call
now I'm gettin sick of all yer shit
but still I'll fall
cause I've got heart trouble
and it's caused by you
you stepped right on it
broke it in two
oh, now I've got a heart problem
it don't beat right
it keeps leadin me back to yer door night after night
now I had a new love who did me right
but it got so damn boring - I missed all the fightin
so I left him lonely, yes I left him cold
just so that I could win the prize of missing you most
now I've got heart trouble
and it's caused by you
you stepped right on it
broke it in two
oh, now I've got a heart problem
it don't beat right
it keeps leadin me back to yer door night after night
I went to the doctor - he said, "just give it up
yer heart's not gonna heal now. Lord there ain't sutures anough
go on and drown yer sorrows in some alcohol."
well okay, alright - it was in my mind, wasn't a doctor at all
but I've got heart trouble
and it's caused by you
you stepped right on it
broke it in two
oh, now I've got a heart problem
it don't beat right
it keeps leadin me back to yer door night after night
keeps leadin me straight to yer door night after night
