about

correatown Los Angeles, California

Correatown was a name someone called her once. Imagine the lights that slowly haze by when you're driving home late at night bleary eyed, or the night sky heavy with clouds just after a thunderstorm. It's Angela Correa's band daydream fully realized in a dark club filled with the reverberating layers of washy guitars, beautiful harmonies, growling fuzzed out analog synths and that voice. ... more

Track Name: Fascination
Well I was spending my time after dark/Fascinated by a love with a tell-tale heart/Took no advice from my friends/I swear that heart I heard it beat-beat beating/I tried/Oh I tried/I tried to make it all right/So now I’m spending some time on my own/Fascinated by the person that I’d become/Had some long talks with my friends/I’ve got a lot to figure out it seems/So I’ll try/Oh I’ll try/I’ll try to make it all right/Oh oh oh oh!/So now I spend lots of time with my friends/Fascinated by the hours we spend la-la-la laughing/We’ve got a lot figured out/I’ve got a lot that’s what I figured out/So I’ll try/Oh I’ll try/I’ll try to make it all alright/Oh oh oh oh!
Track Name: Racing Tides
We were racing tides in the sand/You never lose/I fit a crown for your head/We played the roles we were given/And I held my breath/Yeah, I held my breath/I raced the tides once you’d gone/I never lose/I raced the tides before dawn/I’d never lose/You crossed a line in the sand/You crossed a line I had drawn for you/I crossed my line in the sand/I crossed the words I had written/I held my breath/I close my eyes/I held my breath/Give you a chance/I held my breath/Let you inside/I held my breath/Close my eyes/I held my breath/I let you in/I held my breath/We were racing tides in the sand.
Track Name: All The World (I Tell Myself)
Say that I’ve changed/Say I'm different/Maybe I finally understand/Say I've let go/Say it's obvious/Oh I tell myself over & over/& over & over again/I'm ready I'm ready/I'm ready to believe/Tell me I'm strong/Tell me I'm weak/Tell me I'll never ever bend/Tell me I'm fire/Tell me I'm cold/Cold, Oh I tell myself over &/Over & over again/I'm ready I'm ready/I'm ready to believe/& all the world can watch/The choices you make/All the world can watch/Each tiny mistake/Let the world watch/& let the world wait/For you/So tell me I'm strong/Or tell me I'm cruel/Tell me I fight/Tell me I fought for the wrong things/Cause I'm ready/I'm ready I'm ready to believe/Yeah I’m ready, I’m ready/I’m ready to believe/All the world, all the world they can watch/All the world they can wait/Let the world watch/Let the world wait/Cause I want to feel/All the world all the world they can watch/Let the world watch/Let the world wait
Track Name: India Ink
I know your talk is cheap
Words etch your arm
Black India ink
Cut fast cut deep
Two fingers of whiskey
3 hours of sleep

Give it up for some love
Give it up for some love
Give it up for some
Love

I know your talk is cheap
Words from your mouth
You give away for free
Save a penny, spend your dimes
Thoughts you cherish
Were never mine

Give it up for some love
Give it up for some
Love

I know your talk is cheap
Words lost to hyperbole
Always saying if the timing’s right
But time beats away each day & night

Give it up for some love
Give it up for some
You give it up for your love
Give it up for some
LOVE

I know your talk is cheap
Words etch your arm
Black India ink
Always saying if the timing’s right
But time beats away each day & night
Track Name: Lock & Key
I’m just too easy
Where is my lock
Where is my key
I’ve sewn my heart
Like a merit badge upon my sleeve

& this old locket
The clasp is broken so it hangs openly
I wear it simple
On a ribbon that my mother gave to me

So don’t you come
when the weather’s hot
Sun’s on your skin
Were you looking for that someone who once let you in
You were looking for something

Oh I keep a spark for the days to come
Wasteful as leaving a porch lantern on all night & all day
When you said that you would never stay
Oh you thundercloud you’re brewing rain
& still I wait for the weather to change

This silver locket
The one you bought you gave to me
I wear it on my skin
Under my blouse so you’ll never see
Sometimes we’re still waiting

So don’t you come
when the weather’s hot
Sun’s on your skin
Were you looking for that someone who once let you in
You were looking for something
Track Name: Pinwheels
Why is it not enough to just be around/Why is it not enough to not feel lost when you’ve found the secret out/The secret’s out/Why is it not enough in the light of the day/When shadows can’t obscure all the choices/you’ve made, you’ve lived before/Choices you made before/I want to give into/My heart is spinning around & around/And why should I believe all the stories I’ve told/When fiction becomes real the more times you hear it told/Why should I believe all the stories I’ve told/When fiction becomes real the more times you hear/“So the story goes”/So the story, it goes/I want to believe it/I want to give into/My Heart is spinning around & around/In pinwheels/In pinwheels/Why is it not enough, it’s never enough/Why is it not enough it’s not enough.
Track Name: Nightlight
In the meantime/While sitting here waiting/I can feel my hope fading because you’re already gone/In the meantime/I’ll make believe that just maybe/Your heart was just mending damage so long ago done/So long ago done/So long/& I put a nightlight out for you but it’s fading/& I burned so brightly for you so you would see from far away/Yeah I burned so brightly for you but you just keep me waiting/Yeah I’d like a nightlight to burn for me one day/In the meantime/I’ll sit silent and listen /To thunder in the distance knowing one day it will come/In the meantime/We’ll just go through the motions/Cause they’re better than nothing sometimes/Oh they’re better than nothing…. Sometimes/& I put a nightlight out for you but it’s fading/& I burned so brightly for you so you would see from far away/Yeah I burned so brightly for you but you just keep me waiting/Yeah I’d like a nightlight to burn for me one day
Track Name: Misbehave
I try to tell my heart to behave/Stubborn tempestuous she thinks that she is brave/Oh just a naughty troubled thing/You know she’s always playing her tricks on me/Oh she’s just a sneaky little mess /You know she’s always wandering off someplace/She’s misbehaving/Misbehaving/So I try to tell my heart to behave/No don’t go looking in the bars don’t stay out late/You know she will always run away if he come knock knocking at the gate/But then she comes back late at night she said he only wanted a late night ride/She’s misbehaving/misbehaving/Say it won’t always be this way/She burns too hot too bright an open flame/She’s made a fire I know I can’t contain/She’s misbehaving/So I try to tell my heart to behave/Gone are those easy lessons learned in younger days/Oh will she ever get it right tell me I’m tired of this fight/Tell me that she’s gonna mend her ways /tell me that this girl is gonna stay home safe/She’s misbehaving/misbehaving/you misbehaving
Track Name: Green Cotton Dress
Saturday night, sun has gone down/Bar lights are up all my friends they are going out/They say honey come on down/So Saturday night put my gold high heels on/Wear the green cotton dress handed down from my mama/But I don’t want to go out/Saturday night I call up a cab to take me/down to the place where all my friends they are drinking at/see if some fun is to be had/But on this Saturday night oh my head is held high/I walk into the bar I see this girl hanging on my old guy/Oh why why why/Why do I feel it so intense/I feel this burning way down in my chest/I know I will be crushed by the weight of this/This Saturday night/Saturday night/This Saturday night/This Saturday night/So it’s Saturday night/& the bar lights are down/The sun’s coming up /& I don’t have a single friend around/But I don’t want to go home now/So Saturday night I flag down a cab/I take a blurry ride across the East side with this perfectly nice man/Oh how about that/Why do I feel it so intense?/I feel this burning way down in my chest/I know I will be crushed by the weight of this/This Saturday night
Track Name: Far Far Away
We were talking about our youth/Bedtime tales quiet lullaby’s at night/Though my daddy’s voice was fine /he couldn’t sing but he still tried /he called me sweet Angeline he kissed me goodnight/We were talking about our youth/Sunday best and long car rides home at night/Pile in & settle down it’s a long way to Grandma’s town/Through orchard trees they slide by/Oh I think about it now running through the yard after church let out/With all my childhood friends/Patent leather shoes & a frilly dress a game of tag it was enough I guess/I didn’t have a care back then/Well, I let the pieces fall/A game of tag it was a game tag it wasn’t nothing more/Summer days they sprinted into fall/Winter days they lasted so long/A heavy heart it was a burden I’d never known/So we were talking about our youth/First love & the promise of a kiss /How we’d look up at the stars grass on our backs wishing real hard/Well honey I wished for you back then/Well I still wish on stars that fall/I throw money to water from a savings jar oh I still believe/& you, you wished upon a star you made it fall oh you made it fall far /Far far far away from me
Track Name: Glorybelt
Been so long since the masquerade/The show’s long over long done/I linger on waiting onstage/Lost the glorybelt the song/You fade & burn away, you fade, you fade away/You fade & burn away, you fade, you burn away/& all the girls they smile & pretend to laugh/But they won’t look you in the eye/They just walk on by/ Been so long since those glory days/Forgot the dance but you long for the taste/Without your mask you’re left with your face/You burn & fade away, you fade, you fade away/You burn & fade away, you fade, you fade away/& all the boys they smile/& you, you always seem to laugh/You can’t seem to touch that place/You can’t seem to leave behind the past/You can’t seem to leave behind the way you were
