My Baby 03:25
I was a broken hearted man Just a layin on the ground I couldn’t stand up on my feet To my bitterness I was bound She took my hand And said I under stand I heard the words she said and rose up from the dead Stood straight and tall She’s my one and all We’re gonna stick together My baby’s got a piece of my heart We belong together Nothing’s gonna tear us apart My baby knows just what I need To get me up and that’s for sure Too many reasons to ignore And then she leaves me wanting more My baby covers me with kisses And then she sends me on my way Into the night when dogs are howling And then I come back torn and frayed I know that I’m Gonna be just fine When I’m out of time And countin’ my last dime When I’m down and out I ain’t got a doubt We’re gonna stick together My baby’s got a piece of my heart We belong together Nothing will tear us apart My baby tells me all her secrets And she can read me like a book There’s not a thing that I could hide There ain’t no place she wouldn’t look My baby’s never keeping score But don’t I know it that she could I’m gonna give her what I got She’s gonna give it to me

Our time was fleeting Like water flowing But you touched me And made me feel free You’ve been gone so long I sing this lonely song My words I give you and hope they reach you CHORUS I count the days til I see you again I’ll find away For our hearts to mend From the cold of winter to the heat of summer I’m gonna wait until I’m holding you near I count the days When I am thinking About where I’m going As I drive my car Or sit down at the bar With my friends I laugh But they don’t know the half One thing is on my mind Your kiss I gotta find I count the days til I see you again I’ll find away For our hearts to mend From the snows of winter to the heat of summer I’m gonna wait until I’m holding you near I count the days It’s been so long Since I’ve held you tight There’s something wrong And I can’t sleep at night My world is black And I can’t see the end I want you back In my arms again

You know you’ve got me Just where you want me And all my friends say That I’m crazy She’ll break your heart boy You’ll just be her toy They don’t know how we feel And what we’ve got is real You take me to the top And then you bring me low I just can’t get enough You’re my good bad love My head tells me to stop My heart tells me to go When I can’t see you I guaran tee you I feel so lonely Nothing pleases me I find no pleasure In all my treasure Nothing satisfies Until I see your eyes You take me to the top And then you bring me low I just can’t get enough My head tells me to stop My heart tells me to go You’re my good bad love You got a reputation I’ve heard it all before Every body likes to talk And drag you cross the floor Baby I don’t buy that stuff It’s all a pack of lies Conjured up by broken hearts And guys that couldn’t rise rise rise
5.
You can’t keep going back and forth Between me and your other guy The time has come for you to choose If our love will live or die I don’t have all day and night To sit around and wait Time goes by too quickly For you to hesitate Back and forth You go back and forth Tearin up my heart I can’t take it any more Make up your mind What you gonna do? I’m crawling cross the floor I can’t take it any more I understand you may be torn And see good in us both But you cannot have it all Decide for what it’s worth What is your expectation Do you want me to beg and plead You know me well enough by now I won’t go on bended knee Back and forth You go back and forth Tearin up my heart I can’t take it any more Make your mind up What you gonna do? I’m crawling cross the floor I can’t take it any more Our love affair it started out With promises we’d keep It wasn’t long before I knew That talk is always cheap I’m getting thinking in my head It’s time to walk away I ain’t gonna be no boomerang That comes back every day

Another day to feel alone Can’t go back to an empty home Angry voices ring in your ears The pain is fresh through all the years Bruised and battered you still stand Knock you down you’ll rise again Mountains move and lightning strikes Heavens fall but you’ll make it right After school the lesson’s hard Eating dirt behind the yard Nowhere to run nowhere to hide Nothing left but damaged pride Bruised and battered you still stand Knock you down you’ll rise again Mountains move and lightning strikes Heavens fall but you’ll make it right They hit low, you aim above Take the hate, repay with love When their push, comes to shove Take the hate, repay with love When a brother calls out for help When a sister needs pickin’ up You’ll be there with sympathy And say the words to set them free Bruised and battered you still stand Knock you down you’ll rise again If mountains move and lightning strikes Heavens fall but you’ll make it right They hit low, you aim above Take the hate repay with love When their push comes to shove Take the hate repay with love Bruised and battered you still stand Knock you down you’ll rise again Mountains move and lightning strikes Heavens fall but you’ll make it right

I ain’t got much money But I got plenty of dreams Just give me a chance To show you what I mean I can see your heart Is seeking love You turn away But I got good stuff Nothing but hope is what I got C’mon baby give me a shot You and I can make it right Conquer darkness and see the light The world is mean And times are hard Sometimes it feels Like a prison yard But I look up And see the sky A sea of blue That paints my eye Nothing but hope is what I got C’mon baby give me a shot You and I can make it right Conquer darkness and see the light No body should cry a lone Nobody should have to roam Nobody should be afraid Nobody Should feel betrayed
8.
My education started The day that I met you You took me for a patsy I didn’t have a clue You knew that you were lookin good And you got my attention I thought I hit the jackpot The colored lights were flashin Fool me once and I’ll hand it to you Fool me twice and I say we’re through I got to put you down Gotta set you free Lyin and a cheatin That ain’t for me You think I am so blind But baby I can see What you’re calling love That ain’t for me It started like a dream with My every wish fulfilled Starry nights and satin sheets And champagne that was chilled I may be blind but I ain’t dumb To stark reality For you I was a steppingstone To a ticket that was free You said babe don't be a bore All is fair in love and war I got to put you down Gotta set you free Lyin and a cheatin That ain’t for me You think I am so blind But baby I can see What you’re calling love That ain’t for me It ain’t no use protesting You can’t erase the pain Caused by your endless lies And your fingerpointing blame So go and find another guy, a Gullible young fool A sucker who’ll give it up And dive into your pool I’d say I was a lucky guy To be the one to say goodbye I got to put you down Gotta set you free Lyin and a cheatin That ain’t for me You think I am so blind But baby I can see What you’re calling love That ain’t for me

With an angry face at me you shout the nation’s met its fate Because I’m just like you my friend I can give it to you straight Once the world was black and white And now its living color To understand what’s going down You don’t need to be a scholar Hey Hey Mr. White Dontcha be afraid Change is a comin And nothing stays the same Hey Hey Mr. White It’s gonna be all right The world will keep on turning And the sun will shine its light I went to Ellis Island And walked the empty halls Saw the ghosts of immigrants Hopeful one and all I heard din of many tongues Saw many upturned faces All coming to a land of promise From many different places Hey Hey Mr. White Dontcha be afraid Change is a comin And nothing stays the same Hey Hey Mr. White It’s gonna be all right The world will keep on turning And the sun will shine its light Hey Mr. White It’s gonna be all right Hey Mr. White It’s gonna be all right Memory can be deceiving And paint a rosy picture Like a Norman Rockwell cover Of a land of endless summer It never was so simple As we would like to think Nobody’s hands are bloodless From the same well we all drink Hey Hey Mr. White Dontcha be afraid Change is a comin And nothing stays the same Hey Hey Mr. White It’s gonna be all right The world will keep on turning And the sun will shine its light

about

The fifth full-length Telamor CD!

About Telamor, Tom says, "While I've had years of experience performing live, I'm not interested in being famous. With Telamor I try to keep a very low profile. I'm just trying to make a small contribution to the great tradition of pop rock music. My influences range from Robert Johnson to The Weeknd. If you listen closely, in between you'll hear Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Otis Redding, the Stones, David Bowie, the New York Dolls, Nirvana, even Taylor Swift--pretty much anyone who wrote a great song and sang it with conviction.

"Working with Warren Babson is a great privilege. Basically, it's my job to deliver to Warren a big box of parts. It's his job to take the parts that he wants and assemble them into a great track. We aim to make classic three-minute pop songs that hit you in the gut and reach you emotionally. My lyrics are simple and direct, just like my guitar riffs and our beats.

"While the songs are simple, the recordings can be quite complex, with a full band sound including multiple guitars, piano, background vocals, percussion, plus the bass and drums. It's all played live in the studio--no sampling or quantizing. If you listen carefully you might hear slight fluctuations in tempo in various instruments. That's because we're going for that live band sound, not a processed synthetic sound. Telamor means real rock and real emotion."

REVIEW by Beachsloth, November 22, 2016:
Sung with passion and an anxiety reminiscent of the Talking Heads, Telamor’s “Good Bad Love” is a pure joy. The jerky rhythms, the 70s and 80s alt rock stylings, everything simply works. By far the heart of the album is the Tom Hauck’s clever, concise lyricism. Possessing a poetic quality to it the songs simply unfurl in a dazzling display. These songs are imbued with memorable melodies, outstanding rhythms, and an overall classic sound. “Good Bad Love” is best taken in for the way the songs interact is rather gorgeous. Pacing is done with the utmost of care, as Telamor goes from a full-on driving rhythm to dreamier textures.

“My Baby” starts the album off on a high note, as the way the song builds itself up is deeply satisfying. Mellowed to its core is the moody “Count the Days”. A playful sensibility defines the contradictory emotions of “Nobody Really Cares if You Don’t Go to the Party”. Easily the best song on the album is the title track “Good Bad Love”. Telamor’s voice is commanding as the song veers from full-on blast of sound to the spacy, contemplative moments. Delicate arrangements define the light on its feet spirit of “You Still Stand”. A spirited cover comes on “Human Performance” where Telamor does great work doing Parquet Courts true justice. Bringing the album to a satisfying conclusion is hope of “Hey Mr. White”.

Telamor’s “Good Bad Love” is an album that simply stuns with its earnest, raw, intimate feeling.

REVIEW by Peter Zezas, WMSC 90.3 FM, November 15, 2016: "The cover of this album looks like someone took a picture of Charlie Sheen in his 30s and then overlaid it with a 90s filter. Track 2 is interesting to say the least. This album gives me a sort of solo rock artist feel. This is definitely road trip kind of music that you sing to whether its corny or not – you sing with all your friends while cruising down the highway in mid-July. This is definitely a unique album and is incomparable to anything of my knowledge."
