about

all the songs I never wrote you drops you into an uncomfortable, not-so-casual interaction on the city streets, with two former something-or-another deciding to take a walk. Themes of longing, self-centeredness, and unrealistic self-perception are touched upon in this catchy, cheeky debut release for J Bengoy.

Track Name: Pet Names
I still want you baby
I still need you honey
Why can’t I have you darling
I still love you sweetheart

Going to work, getting in just on time
Making it through thinking of you 9 to 5
The bells almost toll but good times can’t roll when you’re not mine
A love once deferred is making its way through my mind

For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
This might hurt but
For what it’s worth

I still want you baby
I still need you honey
Why can’t I have you darling
I still love you sweetheart

All the lies we told ourselves
Rattle chains of endless thought like ghosts
I hope you know
The summer that you’re living in
Won’t convince a westside therapist
You’re wearing clothes
So you should know

I still want you baby
I still need you honey
Why can’t I have you darling
I still love you sweetheart
Track Name: All About You
Here we go again I’m getting lost
A heart deferred shouldn’t hurt this bad
Hey hey hey
You don’t love me anymore
You don’t say my name in your sleep
but I’m still dreaming, I’m still dreaming
You don’t love me anymore
You lie, between someone else’s sheets
And I’m still dreaming, I’m still dreaming
About you
All about you
You think it’s all about you
It’s always been about you

Know that I was set up from the start
The moment that you turned away
Was when you had my heart
Don’t wanna love you anymore
I call out your name in my sleep
Cause I’m still dreaming, I’m still dreaming
Gotta get you outta my head
Want someone else in my sheets
But I’m still dreaming, still dreaming
About you
All about you
You think it’s all about you
It’s always been about you


Don’t wanna love you anymore
We reconnect before I’m free
So I’m back to dreaming
Always dreaming
Gotta get you outta my head
Haunted by a lack of memory
So I’m still dreaming, always dreaming
About you
All about you
You think it’s all about you
This ain’t all about you
Track Name: Turn Me Around
Guess it started when
I was a simple little kid
Always looking for acceptance

And then you turned me down
Running back the time on my wristwatch
A challenge always gets me going

Then you saw that I was dedicated
And you had me for a summer
But you chose to focus on
when it would end

Contemplating, ruminate on
All the ways I needed you
All the ways I needed you
All the signs that I never heeded

I can’t remember when
I didn’t have a fear of not being wanted
But I have done just that

There’s still a little kid
Rebelling against his inner nature
Forgetting all that might be good in it

The realization we were predicated
On some long unfinished business
Made me keep my focus on
Making amends

Contemplating, ruminate on
All the ways I needed you
All the ways I needed you
All the signs that I never heeded

Turn me around
Oh I get turned around
Turn me around
Oh I’m all turned around
Track Name: Speak
Say what you will, say what you might
If I see both sides of your face in a few months time
I’ll be looking at the freckles that have formed under your eyes

Do they understand what it meant to be gone
or have they learned to live with an inconsiderate sun
who doesn’t really care what your lips have done

Come back again
I hope you come back again
hope you come back again
hope you come back to me, love
