about

Here & Now expresses in every song an importance of capturing a moment. False Alarm starts with expressing the regret of allowing your past time to be stolen. Disappear expresses the yearning for a moment. Dawn explores the present, and how it can slip when we continue to anticipate the future. And Beautiful Night expressed being completely within a moment.

about

Cubbage Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Cubbage hails from Philadelphia, but his heart is that of a traveler. With music rooted in pop/folk foundations, his style also seeks inspiration from jazz and soul reminiscent of John Mayer and Jamie Cullum. Traveling across the US in a sleeper van and busking on the streets between gigs, Cubbage has given himself wholly to a life of a modern bohemian musician. ... more

Track Name: False Alarm
I missed it all
To a warning call A prisoner of charm
A false alarm

Fooled by ghosts
Angelic hosts
Danced around my head
But now I'm trapped instead

I'll choose to wait
Until break of day
But the sun never shows
In this shaded home

It's so wrong
To hold on
Don't last
Too long

In this hollow dream
You are all I see
What a heavenly hell
If I'm lost don’t tell

It's taken course
An external source
Is playing it's part
To control my heart

It's so wrong
To hold on
Don't last
Too long

You had time
To rewind
But the film split
And sun-dried

I missed it all
To a warning call A prisoner of charm
A false alarm

It's so wrong
To hold on
Don't last
Too long

You had time
To rewind
But the film split
And sun-dried
Track Name: Disappear
Now I feel you
Under my skin

What would you do
If it your lake ran dry?
You've lost the confidence to speak
Your heart, it barely beats, you don't know why

But this hell
You're in
Doesn't mean the end

And I'll tell
You're friend
You're on your way to go

So talk to me like it's your last night
And run to me like I'm all your life
But please
Don't disappear

What would you say
If it overflowed?
All your thoughts spill from the brim
And fall like poison on your skin
Your weakness shows

But this hell
You're in
Doesn't mean the end

But I'll tell
You're friend
You're on your way to go

So talk to me like it's your last night
And run to me like I'm all your life
But please
Don't disappear

Talk to me
Run to me

So talk to me like it's your last night
And run to me like I'm all your life
But please
Don't disappear
Track Name: Dawn
Falling leaves Will take their time
Restless heads Will sleep tonight
As flowers fade They have to find
When winter comes Spring's close behind

Beauty kills And glistens white
And icy blanket Eternal night
But frost can melt From morning sun
I'll shed my skin As daylight comes

I'll run forever
If peace is what I'll find
We can go together
Our soul's will meet at the horizon line
I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side

Within the mist I still see
The colored pines
And evergreens
It's midnight's haze
That makes me clean
But high noon's sun
Is when I dream

And I'll run forever
If peace is what I'll find
We can go together
Our souls will meet at the horizon line

I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side

And the light shines down upon your face
In the Dawn I feel this warm embrace

And I'll run forever
If peace is what I'll find
We can go together
Our souls will meet at the horizon line
I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side

I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side
Track Name: Beautiful Night
Crack a bottle of wine
Maybe 8 or 9
We'll feel it this time
In the morning

Let me take some time
Swap stories all night
Share lyrics and rhymes
Till the daylight

The slow fire
Desire's creeping up on me
It's as if Moses proposes to open up the sea

We lost grief
Relief is walking through our door
Don't forgive me, keep giving me more

It's a beautiful night
With some beautiful people

I come alive in the night-time
I'm a God when I write rhymes
I'm so fire, they trying to put me out
But I got big homies that be looking out
Ain't gon damage if I got family
Channel the medic in me
Ain't with the mannequin speech
Tonight's the night for us to loose control
They got me taking more shots than the cops on patrol

Me and the crew and the clouds
Like precipitation, anticipation
Celebration, we gonna take this
World by storm like alien invasion
Rebuild the nation
Room smelling the dankest
I just wanna get high have fun
Spit a bunch of raps and after that get drunk
It's a beautiful night like Kilani in armor
Peace and power to the people no charger

It's a beautiful night
With some beautiful people

Tell me what this means to you
I'll tell you what it means to me
Tell me what this night is
Beautiful
And the temperature is rising
Past 98 degrees
Can you feel it?

It's a beautiful night
With some beautiful people
