“Joe Goes To France” Music and lyrics by Matthew Schwartz Don’t know just what i’ve done Don’t know where I’ve been I feel excited in just knowing that you’re real I know that I can do Nothing without you Don’t know just what i’ve done Don’t know just where I’ve been I feel excited in just knowing that you’re real I’ve seen you once before You coming around my door And I feel excited in just knowing that you care Back to the story line And yes I’m feeling fine I finally got my best friend by my side It took me ages just to accept that my life was in a mess I don’t know which way’s up or down I’ve got my feet back on the ground I’ve got my head up in the sky I know i’m lost I must be found I need to wake up I need you here again once beside me Every night as sure as every day I need you here again to help me on my way I want to fly to France and take a chance to make romance it’s true I want to sail a ship across the sea only if you’d come with me I can do nothing without you

What Else Can I Do? Music and lyrics by Matthew Schwartz Come around to push me down Is this finally love that I’ve found? Or maybe it’s just in my head Round and round and round we go Will this ever stop? I think not, no But will I stay or will I go? Days go by and weeks have passed I thought this’d be the one that lasts Oh how I wish time weren’t so fast More and more and more and more each day I wish I’d called or I wished you’d stayed Oh what does it matter anyway? Wait another minute What else can I ever say to you?/do my love? What else can I do? Wait another minute What else can I ever do, my love?/What else can I do for you my love? / Why can’t I just get you off of my mind? What else can I do?

“The Knockdown” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Wipe that liner from my eye Cause wearing heartache’s not in style And in due time I might find After all it’s not so bad You’re the best I ever had Playing it over and over Stuck in a song Humming along Sounding like a chord that won’t belong Guiding light it shines so bright In the middle of the night Showing symptoms we can fight And it hurts to be held tight Two wrongs don’t make a right I can’t believe my eyes Moving around My heart on the ground Tipping hats to lonely nights I’ve found. It’s all or nothing baby Knock down every door And if love means something Knock down every door I’ve been waiting here for you
4.
“Kick It Round” Music and Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells More or Less The weight it off my chest A simple test A method to the madness Walking around Tripping on your underground I type in all bold, break the mold, picture of the soul you sold I want to snap that crooked record straight This time around A throwback that will never ever last Kick it round and round Kick it up and down With the brand new sound I never hear you talking Well then My patience and my soul pen Won’t bend, revel in, bidding in the scene again Well, another night You and your mind fight Because you’re uptight, downbeat, too afraid to move your feet Come on and skip the broken record shake The music goes all night A throwback that will never ever last It just takes takes a little time In the end you’ll find Things aren’t the way they used to be You’re right behind me, sign me, write me off tonight
5.
Walking Away 03:59
“Walking Away” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells I woke up when I lost you My hand it somehow slipped through yours as crowds passed by This town it hates to love you And my plans always fall to pieces I can’t place The mystery still thrills me I stretch the lines just to see how far I can go Break my legs I beg you Replace my heart with one new love for who you are Sundays they used to be/seem so long But now you’re gone Cause I’m walking away I’m walking away Ive never been this far away from you And I must say I don’t know what I’ll do all I need is you
6.
Overrated 02:56
“Overrated” (Version 1 and 2) Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells First we made They over played it Sounds outdated So overrated, now We’re back again / I’m back again Bleeding skin / with Bleeding skin You’d think each time that’d i’d listen But it’s too late now A party foul This tattoo Says I’m through with you An unlocked cage is all the rage We’re/I’m making up for all those mispent days So let the sad song(s) play misinformed DJ Because requested radio says I’m better that way It’s now my turn to crash and burn Yet each day another lesson learned I said I’m up in smoke, a second hand joke Sweeping up the pieces of the heart I broke So overrated Infatuated / exaggerated Miscalculated I should have changed the station when I had the chance I should have stopped that song before we started to dance I should have paid her off with my record advance I should have stopped
7.
xMultiplyx 03:21
“xMultiplyx” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Breakdown We’re falling up A victory song It’s not enough Believing everything you’ve read Well, I’ve been Flickering Shedding light From left to right Barely breathing but not dead And it’s said and it’s done and this army of one as we march into the sun Oh, when will we Be finally free Chained to who We used to be The revolution’s up ahead With closed eyes We’re capsized We’re blindly Living We sink and hit the ground We won’t die we’ll just multiply and take over This is our time when Cold air stings on these new found wings as we fly over This is our only time
8.
So, So Radio 02:29
“So, So Radio” Music and Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells I took a spin through space with rock royalty To all the places I was too young to be I’m seeing bright lights, late nights, feeling alive, dead in a new york dive Put on your makeup, wake up, ready by three, hello BBC So, So come on radio Hold on tight so I can just let Go, go come on radio Hold on tight so I can just let go Soak up the stardust with a sultry stare Christine’s just sixteen playing truth or dare It’s a lifestyle, nail file, wearing you down, nose dive to the ground I’m trashing hotels, no tells, bucking the trends, making brand new friends
9.
Ex's & O's 03:34
“Ex’s & O’s” Music by Matthew Schwartz and Joel Walker Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells I’ve been around this town and I’m not coming back Your smell it overwhelms from the perfume bottle crack I lost the words I finally found to say And days of throwing my i love you’s away I've been down I’ve heard nothing is for sure Or so they tell me If less is really more We’ll never ever know Cause I don’t let it show I can’t go on this/that way If less is really more You don’t deserve me Lately I’ve spent days in dreams and dirty jeans Doing nothing alone is harder than it seems And I can’t dot your rolling eyes Or trace my way back through your tangled truth and lies
10.
Lacklustre 04:02
“Lacklustre” Music and Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells This liquids helping but I’m hoping for a better way So I can open up your head and figure out which day Somethings crossed with a spark you forgot my name This morning’s gory with no story on what made you change I’m sick of hearing sirens steering me to what seems right While I feel left all alone to drive around all night Well maybe call with a line so contrived you’ll scream Devise a plan blast your name just to cause a scene. Well since you tasted today It’s hard to swallow yesterday So choke it down you say You loved me yesterday If this is better than forever then I’ll stay in line So i can spit out all the kisses that I thought were mine So i was wrong, just move on when you trip and fall Just think of me and we’ll both agree that you’ve lost it all
11.
“3 Out Of 5 Ain’t So Bad...Baby” Music and Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Red mean nothing When we’re tearing up the open road Being colorbind is fine with me Get in the car let's go We’ll paint this city The darkest shade of midnight But nevermind the time Just stay with me and we’ll be alright I’m known to fight but not tonight Instead, instead I’ll sign the dotted line I said I’m I’m known to fight but not tonight Instead, instead I’ll sign the dotted line blind And share my piece of mind Pick my pockets It’s empty cause I pay my dues Now i’m betting everything on me And everything on you Were poisoned by the barrel You said I’ve gone crazy I love to taste the pleasure and the pain Small town kids in low class lifes So blinded by the flashing lights Slow down kids the time you keep is rare This town never sleeps
12.
“Until It’s You” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Caught a thought on a cross town train In the dark though it sounds insane I’ve lost it, I’ve lost it And it felt like a shotgun shell to the heart Though it burned like hell I missed it, I've missed it All in all it’s you All in all there's nothing left to lose All in all it’s you All in all is never all that much Until it’s you Made a wish that i'd like to kiss goodbye Though i still insist on thinking On dreaming Of a smile fresh faced and far away I can’t replace by drinking I’m faking I’ve looked around there's nothing left to lose
13.
A Day In The Life (Of The Living Dead) Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells For dramatic touch I’ll pose You can stitch me up in roes Cause i’m covered in cuts i know It doesn't hurt that much In your winter white Still dark in any light Cause if the blood don’t show no one will ever know that Can't you see Clearly You’ll be the death of me Lost and i’m found And I’m down And we come from underground Well, back on my knees Oh please with the third degree Can’t breathe Cause im cover in sunk I know it’s hard to believe Now that it’s all been said And I’m the living dead A day in the life with my beautiful wife and kids Tripping over stones The small of roses says I’m home Now send my wishes and my kisses to the ones i’ve left alone So tell me, where's a guy to go? Maybe six feet down or so To bathe in mud and all a sudden I just wanted you to know Just a day in the life of the living dead
14.
Ms. You 04:15
“Ms. You” (Version 1 and 2) Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Ms. You You said goodbye and / I said goodbye and Soaked our past in low grade gas and left New flames They always seem to Burnout quick but this one lit me up For all the times I wondered about life outside of you So i tried, I guess I’m wrong Lately I’m sick to death cause she infects my second guessing, troubled/troubling mind Revenge tastes so sweet You lick your lips and crack you whip And laugh while I just sing I’m coming back, I’m coming back Around I found that I’m seeing things better when Face down Through all the injuries and memories / memories and injuries I miss you You live and learn Burn, baby, burn Knee deep in what I’ve done
15.
Me, My Disaster, And I Music and Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Forced fed these lines for all my life You’ll never leave alive I said why lie? I had to try Haze breaks and blurs my crystal clear I swerve it's only nerves The learning curve is hard to steer dear It’s just me, my disaster, and I Oh, let it fly, do or die, bye bye Don’t ask me why, black eyes, and compromise Just watch the sky it’s falling fast With western stars that couldn’t last as long As I am wrong Just watch the sky it’s burning bright With every word you couldn’t write or say To make me stay I’m miles away Three thousand miles from saving face Of freeways and judgement days A dead fall from a so called grace that's all My sad romance with suicide Of past and future lives A made mark in part that seems so sick i know I can’t let go
16.
Shake It Up 03:56
“Shake It Up” Music and Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Let’s Go Radio Strike now for total control I said radio Stand clear for all systems go Smoke hangs low everywhere I want to go The neon glow exposing scars i didn’t know Radio Stand clear for all systems go So sweetheart attack You’re never ever coming back Shake it up Shake it up Shake it Shake it up Just enough Shake it Shake it up Just enough Shake it I've found hands down you just gotta shake it up When love gets you down you just want to shake it up Miles away From ok but i'll find a way I said i’m miles away From sad states and wasting days White hot nights lose on the street From the dark dead days inside from heat I said I’m miles away From sad states and wasting days
17.
“Fantasy (In B Minor)” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells When you’re asleep I’ll soar Feed my hungry heart through open doors It’s my mistake, it’s fake I know it To have my share of cake and eat it too Well what can I do? Cause I believe We were meant to be together Fantasy Has now wrecked all of the reality Of love An everyday eyesore That begs a blinded heart to look for more It’s my mistake, it’s fake I know it To watch me give and take and take from you Well what can I do? Picture perfect It’s not worth it A thousand words that shoot right through you
18.
“Eleven-Fifteen-O-Three” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells Couldn’t write an ending better standing speechless with your letter You penned it perfectly I think the weather had my hands too cold to hold her for the better So i let go of you It’s been the best, it was the worst, i thought at first this space was great for My bloated sense of style After a while it just grows wild in the sun or when it’s watered It’s watered down Cause It’s quiet out and I don’t want to be alone when the sun comes up I’m finding out that I don’t want to be alone when the night is up No i don’t wanna be alone My saturday's your sunday i know early august was your birthday I know it missed it girl I’m really sorry this pacific time is hardly any excuse For what I put you through I take it back, blue and black, on a track of a train wreck I did this to myself A power surge, a clever word, i feel the urge for a come back So come on back Cut my tongue out for bad taste Said my piece, rested my case And hung the jury one by one I don’t wanna be alone I don’t wanna be alone I don’t wanna be alone when the sun is coming I don’t mean to be absurd Chasing all these action verbs Breaking everything I’m dying for trying to deaden the feeling
19.
It's Over 04:51
“It’s Over” Music by Matthew Schwartz Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Matt Wells I’ll part the sea and drown And sing without a sound With cigarettes and sin keeping you around Enough to let me down It’s over The sharpest hands of time Cut the ties that bind When walking arm in arm means dragging me behind A failure by design It’s over With a will still too strong To say that I am wrong I’m burning down I can’t fan the flames of change You said it’s over I know it’s over Why did I ever pray for rain? The deadliest wish is a kiss on the lips cause I always knew it’d end this way I’ll play with broken glass to slice a better half of a seven letter word to redefine the past rewind what played too fast It’s over I see this comforts killing me So here’s goodbye

about

"This album is a collaboration of Pacifico's music from the last 5 years. All songs included mark aspects from different times and changes in our lives. The music moves with our transition from being a three-piece, to a four-piece, to ultimately a five-piece band. Through this process, we learned to work together and hone our skills to ultimately create one remarkable album. That is why I am very pleased that these songs will finally be available for listening. While many of the songs included were previously released, a few are never before heard. A number of these received radio airplay and at one time or another were featured on various television shows. Overall, this album truly reflects us. Pacifico was a band that worked hard, played even harder, and essentially loved performing and creating music. Thank you for your purchase, as well as your continued support and prayers."

about

Pacifico Atlanta, Georgia

True, it is the musical journey of singer/songwriter Matthew Schwartz, but Pacifico is more about the music than one person. Pacifico started in the summer of 1999 and since has gone through many changes but has always remained a solid outlet for great music. ... more
