about

Kosi New York, New York

She's more than just a drama queen. She's got piercing eyes and a voice that's larger than her body. But, small as she is, she won't fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can follow. First she's jazz, then she's blues, then she's rock, but always powerful. You definitely want to hear this girl sing... if you can handle it. ... more

Track Name: One More Cup of Coffee
One more cup of coffee
or maybe it was tea?
These shoes are done with walking
that don't bother me.
One guitar string missing --
I think that one's the G?
One knight in tarnished armor
come to rescue me.

'Scuse me, I was on my way to nowhere
and you look like you know how to get there
so walk with me.

One more cup of coffee --
my cup is running low.
One more half hour talking
and we're out of dough.
Now the night is falling
we've got nowhere to go.
Take me somewhere secluded
no one has to know.

'Scuse me, this is not what I had planned out
but since you're standing there with your hand out
come walk with me.

One more cup of coffee
One more tasty brew
One more spoonful of sugar
nothing's sweet as you
Just a love story babe
and I swear that it's true.
Just a love story babe.
Track Name: Little Miss Generous
This is the story about a girl named Little Miss Generous.
She ran out of money, so she gave up her soul
then she plucked out her fingernails right from their cuticles
peeled them right off and tossed them in a bowl
and she gave it all away 'til she had nothing left to give.

She plucked out her eyebrows one hair at a time
tossed them in the bowl and left it on the table
with a marker-written sign that said "free for the taking"
and when nobody took she called them all ungrateful
she gave it all away 'til she had nothing left to give.

See her now on the corner, skinless and shivering
nothing more to give now and even less to say
but no one will help her, as they all know the score
that anything you give her, she'll just give it away
'cause she gave it all away 'till she had nothing left to give
'till she had nothing left to give
Oooh... 'till she had nothing
Track Name: The Coldest Summer
It was summertime and you were cold
and I was feverish
Really thought that I could warm your soul
but that was long ago
in those days I was foolish

Even when I held you in my arms
I felt alone.
How could I resist your rugged charms
even as I bruised my flesh
against your heart of stone.

Alone, I sat alone
in a dark corner huddled
to protect myself
against the blizzard that was you.

I loved you though you could not see
through your icy cover
Looking back I know that had to be
the coldest summertime
and you the falsest lover.

And how can I have known
that the pervasive chill that
froze your spirit would
come round and freeze my spirit too?

I loved you though you could not see
through your icy cover
Looking back I know that had to be
the coldest coldest summertime (6x)
the coldest summertime
and you the falsest lover.
Track Name: Karen
Your body was like a temple
and I, like a burnt sacrifice,
was laid on your altar, consumed by your fire
and now I am paying the price
cause I'm longing to love you, Karen
I'm burning to taste you, Karen
I'm learning to hate you, Karen
dear Karen, sweet Karen

A god of my own creation
deceit in the form of a kiss
that one who could love me the way that you loved me
could ever in this life exist
cause I'm longing to love you, Karen
I'm burning to taste you, Karen
I'm learning to hate you, Karen
dear Karen, sweet Karen

But who were you and where are you
another sky, another space
a vagabond, a bitter place
what am I expected to do?

You're only a passing distraction
the thing I so wanted to find
unfortunately now I'm bound to delusion
I can't get you out of my mind
Track Name: Autumn in New York
Autumn in New York
why does it seem so inviting?
Autumn in New York
it spells the thrill of first nighting
shimmering crowds and glittering clouds
in canyons of steel
they're making me feel
I'm home.

It's autumn in New York
that brings the promise of new love.
Autumn in New York
is often mingled with pain.
Dreamers with empty hands
may sigh for exotic lands
but autumn in New York
it's good to live it again.
Track Name: Need Your Love
I can sing backup in anybody's band
and I'll sing it so low 'cause I can do it like a man
then I'll sing it so high 'cause I think it might impress you
but I won't do it loud 'cause I'll never ever stress you
I can bend my body I can twist it like a string of pearls
bend over backwards, I can do it, I'm a yoga girl
back so strong make you call me Aunt Sarah
call me Jessie call me Mary 'cause the name don't matter

I need you to love me
I need your love
Can I make you can I make you love me
I need your love
That's all I'm asking

I can take humiliation if you serve it in a bowl
I can tear it into pieces or just take it down whole
I can grill it like a steak with some hot sauce on it
and I won't share a piece 'til you tell me that you want it
I can paint my body all in gold 'til it glitter
I can be that little cutie you'd be strutting to be with her
and I'd look so good they'd be like "who's that chick?"
but if you don't want to see it I can put away my guitar

I need you to love me
I need your love
Can I make you can I make you love me
I need your love
That's all I'm asking for
Track Name: The Last Shot
This may be
my last shot of whiskey for a while, I'm
jittery and I can't sleep. I know I
shouldn't have so many but
I thought that it would be okay
You told me it would be okay

I want to
I'd even go so far to say I need you
and everything you tell me I believe you
when you put your arms around my waist
and told me it would be okay
You said that it would be okay

You're pouring lies into my cup
and I drink it down as you fill it up

And I taste it
I've had too much to drink and now I'm wasted
I think I might be sick and God I hate it
and I need a cup of coffee but
I think that I will be okay
You told me I would be okay.

This may be
my last shot of whiskey for a while, I'm
jittery and I can't sleep. I know I
shouldn't have so many but
I thought that it would be okay
You told me it would be okay
Track Name: Marlene
This could be your retribution,
the perfect solution
to all of this stuff, love.
I gave you all that I could
but I guess it's no good
if I'm playing too rough, love.

This is the way that I feel
'cause the shit just got real
you're in need of protection.
Watch where you're putting your lips
while my body still drips
with that poison infection.

Run Marlene, go Marlene,
don't take me with you.
Run Marlene, go.
Run Marlene, go Marlene,
don't take me with you.
Run Marlene, go.

Now take your chance, get away
'cause you don't get an A
just for participating.
I have been lonely before
it's okay, shut the door,
I'll be here masturbating.

Now that my love has been started
you've opened your heart
and it's going to break now.
It matters not that I care
but you'd better prepare
for the violent takedown.

You can put down your resistance.
I love your persistance
but you're going to burn, love.
This is the point where it shatters
'cause it hardly matters
that I tried to love you
I wanted to love you
my love is your curse
it will only get worse
if you stay with me.

This could be your retribution
the perfect solution
to all of these issues.
Since I'm the wretched who hurt you,
I may not deserve to
declare that I miss you.
Track Name: Once And Future
Ain't it funny how certain people never seem to get it right
like when I try to say I love you and we end in a fight
and maybe I'm sorry for the many stupid things that I do
but I don't know another way for me to get back with you
and I want to stare into the eyes of my once and future man
It's not over, it's not over
It's not over, not over, not over, no

And I promise if I could ever get myself out of this mess
then I could be the love you need instead of causing you stress
and maybe I'm holding way too tightly to a dying jones
but I don't know another way to get the chill from my bones
I want to stare into the eyes of my once and future man
It's not over, it's not over
It's not over, not over, not over, no

And I'm begging you please, take me back
My whole life is on a runaway track
and maybe I'm sorry for the many ways in which I've been a fool
but I love you, babe, I love you, babe, so please don't be cruel
I want to stare into the eyes of my once and future man
It's not over, it's not over
it's not over, not over, not over, no
it's not over, not over, not over, no
it's not over, not over, not over, no
