about

With “A vividly perceptive eye, a vast musical landscape, and a voice rich in both purity and nuanced detail,” Sara Lovell has delivered another delightful album for kids and their families. Following up her award-winning 2016 release, Lovell’s latest album, “Wild is Everywhere,” covers a wide range of topics and musical styles. The 14 original songs journey through a landscape populated with flying children, misplaced animals of a certain size, and insects or flowers that turn up in the most unexpected places. So “grab onto the tail of someone’s kite” and fly into the wildness that lies just outside your door.

Thank You:

To Gabe, my growing boy, who continues to inspire me to sing more, laugh more, play more and love more.

To my collaborating partners extraordinaire - this album would not have reached its full potential without your artistry, heart and humor:

- Monica Pasqual, the most intuitive producer, co-writer/arranger I could ever hope for.

- BZ Lewis, my favorite guitar player and engineer, and also one heck of a drum coach.

To the wonderful musicians who brought these songs to life - Josh McClain, Erik Pearson, Irene Sazar, Destani Wolf, and Pam Delgado.

To Anna Silivonchik for another exquisite painting that captures the spirit of this collection of songs.

Here’s to a vision of the world we want to live in, one of kindness and imagination, joy and belonging - this album is dedicated to families, children of all ages, and to their communities.

about

Sara Lovell Berkeley, California

Furry alligator puppies, run-away socks, ducks on parade and flying children are just a few of the wonders you’ll encounter in Sara Lovell’s fanciful worlds. With two full-length albums of songs for kids and families, it’s apparent that Sara is not so much singing to children as she is reporting back with love from a magical landscape she inhabits. ... more

Track Name: Get Up
Get up get out set off to the blue sky
Grab onto the tail of someone’s kite
Floating above the town after sunrise
There goes the poodle of Mr Dunbright

It’s yapping at the Henley’s cat that’s napping in their store
Then it spots a squirrel and it charges out the door
Barking there beneath the tree
Floating on again you see

Annie’s café with breakfast served all day
Famous for her cherry rhubarb pie
Order a fancy coffee or just plain
While kids hang out to watch the ducks stroll by

They’re on their way to Bailey’s pond another block away
Cars are used to stopping when they see the flock parade
Children singing songs while they wave
And march along with them

Fly on a little farther a new scene
Farmers at their market on a Sunday
Lulu has apples, berries or string beans
And Mrs Toon with daffodils and daisies

There’s a man on stilts whose making shapes by twisting long balloons
Kids in line get restless, parents feed them macaroons
Lunch on the creek side lawn if you
Blink once another scene is gone

Floating in the sky and looking down
Everything is beautiful, the sights, the sounds
The people and the places in your little town
You see it all from here above
The things you love

Back in your kitchen drinking your sweet tea
Having toast and jelly in your PJs
Soon you will hear the rest of your family
Coming down to join you for the day

Just outside the window Mr Dunbright saunters by
On his way to Annie’s for her famous rhubarb pie
Track Name: Rhinoceros Under The Bed
There’s a rhinoceros under the bed
Can you believe what I’ve just said
I can see it’s horn sticking through my pillow
Won’t get my forty winks, oh no

Oh I’d better go to another room in this house

There’s a hippopatumus in the bath
If it wasn’t so big I’d have to laugh
Used up my soap and my shampoo
What’s going on, is this a coup

So I’d better move to another room in this house

I’m a little bit hungry
I’m a little bit thirsty
Oh no there’s a crocodile in my kitchen
Oh no its tail is breaking all the dishes

Is there any safer place
Maybe down the stairs
But there’s an elephant in the basement
This is a serious misplacement
I’m in for a number of very large repairs

There’s a rhinoceros under the bed
A crocodile in the kitchen
A hippopatumus in the bath
And you know what I’ve been wishing

If there has to be a zoo inside my house
I’d much prefer to have a mouse
Or a long necked grouse
Or a beetle or a gerbil
Or a rainbow trout
Or a lizard or squirrel
Or our long lost turtle
Or a pot bellied piggy with a snout
Instead I’ve got
These big bad boys
Now how do I get them out

Don’t think anyone would listen now
If I said my pantry has a cow
What I wouldn’t give to hear a simple bow wow wow
Or a chirp or a tweet or a little meow

There’s a rhinoceros under the bed
You might think you’ve been mislead
But if you come over here right now
You’ll see his backside sticking out

Hey on second thought
Can I come over to your house?
Track Name: Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie
Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie
Fresh from the oven, don’t pass by

Take your pick of all three treats
Buy the lot and a fourth’s on me

Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie
Worked all morning with flour in my eye

With a little bit of this, a little bit of that
Rolled out the dough to make it flat
With your discerning taste buds in my mind
I came up with my own technique
That’s why my pies are so unique
With flavors that will stick with you from day to night

Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie
Straight from the garden, don’t pass by

Perfect crust and the filling’s sweet
One, two, three and the fourth’s on me

Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie
All organic, made with pride

A little bit of this, a little bit of that
Rolled out the dough to make it flat
With your discerning taste buds in my mind
I came up with my own technique
That’s why my pies are so unique
Flavors that will stick with you from day to night

Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie
Samples here if you’d like to try

Buy the lot and the fourth’s on me

Track Name: Bounce
Get up on the floor
Move around like you’re wanting to
Make this party
Shake your body and your mind up too

Bounce, bounce

Let your freak-song roar
Wear your sparkle like you’re wanting to
Make this party
Shake the ceiling and the floorboards too

No matter how feel
No matter where you are
No matter who you’ve been
Right now you are a star
When you’re dancing

Bounce

Track Name: Pie In The Sky
Pie in the sky
There’s a moon floating by
With a girl on it waving hello
She waits for a ride
To come down through the night
And she catches your eye
Can you throw her a rope

Time really flies
With a girl from the sky
And you stroll for a time
While the stars light your way

How many times
Can you journey like this
In search of a spell-breaking kiss
Or a treasure you missed

Then you tumble and sail
On the back of a whale
As he dives down to reaches below
While under the waves
You see crystalline caves
And an old ship’s remains
With a chest full of gold

How many times
Can you journey like this
In search of a spell-breaking kiss
Or a treasure you missed

When you’re finally back home
Not the least bit alone
And they say “tell us how was your day”
And the moon she winks down
At your place on the ground
And the love that you’ve found
And you’re happy to stay

You’ve been tied to the moon
You’ve gone under the ocean
And still you will always belong

To the people who love you
Surround you and hug you
And gratefully welcome you home

Pie in the sky
There’s a moon floating by
With a girl on it waving hello
Track Name: The Dark Side Of My Room
It’s the dark side of my room
I can see it over there
When the moon hides behind my door
And there’s but nothing but black spreading
Over my floor

What do I do
To make it through
What path can I devise
It’s the dark side of my room
And I’m afraid to close my eyes

It’s the dark side of my room
Am I the only one
In the shadows I can’t tell if there’s anything
There that I’d have to outrun

What would I say
How could I sway
The whims of those unseen
It’s the dark side of my room
There’s not much distance in between

Oh I know
I can be
A hero in my dreams
Oh I know
I will see
The light in every scene

It’s the dark side of my room
I envision many things
But I won’t utter them aloud just in case
They appear along with their friends

I’ve tried to sleep
I’ve counted sheep
And still I’ve come undone
It’s the dark side of my room
I fear the night has just begun

Oh I know
I can be
A hero in my dreams
Oh I know
I will see
The light in every scene

I’ve tried to sleep
I’ve counted sheep
It must be very late
It’s the dark side of my room
Alas, I cannot stay awake
Track Name: All The Grownups Get To Stay Up Late
All the grownups get to stay up late
And it doesn’t matter what I say
When I finally fall asleep they can read or watch TV
Or have another piece of cake

All the grownups get to do what they want
And it’s never any other way
No one reprimands or makes demands
They’re free to choose their fate

Life is so unfair
I don’t get my fair share
In the spring and summer
It’s still light at bedtime and
No one seems to care

All the grownups get the final say
And it’s always going to be that way
In my bed I keep them talking, want ‘em to be near
Still they say goodnight and walk away
All the grownups get to stay up late

When I’m a grownup
I’ll have my cake and eat it too
I’ll be the one who makes the rules around here
And my kid will sing the same sad song
That I sing now

All the grownups get to stay up late
I do not fully accept my fate
When I shout or stomp my feet and say “that’s not fair”
Grownups take the bait
That’s the way I get to stay up late
I get to stay up late
Track Name: What Color Is The Sunshine
What color is the sunshine
What sound does the snow make
Can you see the shape of thunder
Can you feel the turn of daybreak
What color is the sunshine
What color is the sunshine

What color is a moonbeam
What songs do the rocks sing
Can you feel the edge of nightfall
In the shadow of a bird’s wing
What color is a moonbeam
What color is a moonbeam

All around, when I’m still
The breath of trees, the rolling hills

What color is the sunshine

What color is a rainstorm
What sound does the earth make
How smooth is a blue sky
How jagged is a cloud break
What color is a rainstorm

When I’m still and make no sound
A humming world is all around

What color is the sunshine
What color is the sunshine
Track Name: Where You Hiding All Day Long
Where you hiding all day long
Where you hiding all day long
Where you hiding all day long
Said the sun to the moon she loved

I’m shining over on the other side
Shining over on the other side
Shining over on the other side
Come and find me when you set at night

Hey there water, where you gone
Hey there water, where you gone
Hey there water, where you gone
Said the bullfrog to the pond

The ice is holding me within
Ice is holding me within
The ice is holding me within
When it warms back up you can jump right in

Where your leaves all winter long
Where they gone all winter long
Where your leaves all winter long
Said the snowbird to the trees above

They’re deep deep down in the underground
Deep deep down in the underground
They’re deep deep down in the underground
‘Til the spring has sprung and they sprout back out

Why you going round and round
Why you going round and round
Why you going round and round
Said the earth to the sky above

You’re the one that’s spinning friend
You’re the one that’s spinning friend
You’re the one that’s spinning friend
I stand still ‘til the very end
Track Name: I Want It Now
I want it, I want it
I want it now
I try to prolong it
But I don’t know how
They say the delay
Is good for my brain
But I want it I want it
Before I go insane

Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
I want it, I want it
I want it now

I got it, I got it
Gonna act real sly
When they’re not looking
I’m gonna squeeze right by
Gonna find the stash
From last Halloween
Oh I’ll get it, I’ll get it
Without being seen

Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
I want it, I want it
I want it now

I’m an instigator, negotiator, a gladiator, a “not now” hater

Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
You don’t want to mess with me

I want it, I want it
I want it now

They say delayed gratification
Is a mark of high intellect
But presently this temptation
Seems like a thing I shouldn’t neglect
I want it, I want it
I want it now

I’m an instigator, negotiator, a gladiator, a “not now” hater
An agitator, interrogator, manipulator, a not-so-tolerator

I want it, I want it
I want it now
Track Name: How To Love Yourself
How to love yourself
When you’re feeling down
How to love yourself
When you can’t get pick your feet up off the ground

Take a look around
You gotta find a different view
Turn it upside down
Make it into something new

How to love yourself
When you’re feeling oh so bad
How to love yourself
On the worst day you ever had

You gotta take a walk
Gotta move around
Sing a song
And sing it loud
Stop that falling
Oh you’re falling
Keep from falling
Down down down down down

How to love yourself
When you feel like freaking out
How to love yourself
When you really want to scream and shout

You’ve gotta take a breath
Try a smile
Put your glitter on
Show your style
Then you take your sad self by the hand
You know you’ll make it through thick and thin

How to love yourself
Love love love love yourself
Track Name: The Problem Song
When you don’t know what to do
When you can’t see your way through
You’re in a bind

When you try to work it out
And your head is filled with doubt
You’re driving blind

You’ve got a problem
And you’ve got to solve it

Do you remember when you
Had another problem in the past
The answer was not what you thought
In what ways did you proceed
To get the data at last
And you solved it, did you not
When the fog clouds up your mind
The solution’s hard to find
You’re in a rut

You’ve got a problem
And you’ve got to solve it

Don’t give up on it
Stay on top of it
Take a look at it from all directions
Then take a walk around
Think of your favorite song
When you come back to it
Your problem you will solve

Your problem you will solve

When the goal seems so far away
And you think you don’t have what it takes
Keep on and you will figure it out
You’ve got a problem
And you’ve got to solve it

Who do you know who
Takes a go at a problem with zest,
And a fire in their eyes
Oh can you ask them
To explain all the theories they’d test
The many formulas revised

When you don’t know what to do
When you can’t see your way through
You’ve got a problem

Don’t give up on it
Stay on top of it
Take a look at it from all directions
Then take a walk around
Think of your favorite song
When you come back to it
Your problem you will solve

Your problem you will solve
Track Name: Wild Is Everywhere
You might be out in the middle of the woods
You might feel the moss beneath your feet
No roads or buildings visible for miles
But maybe you’re just outside your door
With city sounds and concrete stairs
So far away from everything that’s wild

Look closer now
Look closer now

There might be a flower sprouting up in the street
Then you look closer and there’s a bee
Closer still, there’s gold dust on its knees

With wings of lace
Now give it space

Then you watch it fly to spread the news
More flowers blooming soon
In different hues

Up in your room looking out at the street
People and cars keep passing by
Sometimes the wild seems so far away

But maybe there’s a beetle on your windowsill
Look close and you see many shades of blue
Closer still and it shimmers like a jewel

With wings of lace
You give it space
Now watch it fly lifting through the air
No matter where you are
Wild is everywhere

Oh when you’re looking at the stars
And everything else disappears
Oh it may make you feel small
But you know
You’re connected to it all

You might be running in the wind and sun
You might feel the sand beneath your feet
With colored shells and driftwood all around
But maybe you’re just outside your door
With city sounds and concrete stairs
So far away from everything that’s wild

Up in your room looking out at the street
People and cars keep passing by
Sometimes the wild seems so far away

There might be a flower sprouting up in the street
Then you look closer and there’s a bee
Closer still, there’s gold dust on its knees

Or maybe there’s a beetle on your windowsill
Look close and you see many shades of blue
Closer still and it shimmers like a jewel
