about

Elle Casazza Chicago, Illinois

Elle Casazza is many things, but she isn’t “retro.” Sure her music evokes a bygone era, when jazz and soul reigned supreme; granted, her voice commands attention in a way few contemporary singers can claim. But “retro” implies she’s cashing in on a trend, and one listen to her new album “Proof” proves that Elle Casazza is nothing if not authentic. ... more

Track Name: Hey
I said hey, tell me what did I say?
Did you even take the time to open your mind
And listen to me?

When I move my lips can you hear a sound?
Are you even standing on the same ground
Is all your hearing blah, blah, blah?
I’m up to here, it’s the last straw

See I’m trying to understand
What’s so hard to comprehend

I said hey, tell me what did I say
Did you even take the time to open your mind
And listen to me?
I said hey, you're gonna hear what I say
No I won’t back down I’ll keep making a sound
Until you listen to me!

Is it really hard for you to hear
I’m trying to be honest and sincere
You know I want to help you out
But you can’t see what I’m about

See if you don’t let me in
Then we never can begin

I said hey, tell me what did I say
Did you even take the time to open your mind
And listen to me?
I said hey, you're gonna hear what I say
No I won’t back down I’ll keep making a sound
Until you listen to me!

Can you tell me what I just said?
Try to step outside of your head
Should I try a little louder
Tell me who here’s go t the power
Baby you and I go both ways
Maybe I need to rephrase
See I’ve got some things on my mind
If you don't hear I’ll leave you behind

I said hey, tell me what did I say
Did you even take the time to open your mind
And listen to me?
I said hey, you're gonna hear what I say
No I won’t back down I’ll keep making a sound
Until you listen to me!

You need to listenx3
You need to listen
Track Name: Save Me
Vs1:Another night, to go out on the town
I’m lookin good, and feelin proud
But then I run, into the likes of you
Looks like I’ll need, another drink or two

Did I just hear what I think you said?
I didn’t need a map to find a spot in your bed.
What made you think I was lookin for you
Please spare me from, what I think you’ll do.

Now I’ve got a question I need to ask
Do I look like a damsel in distress?
No I’m not your princess or your maiden fair
And I don’t need the likes of you to

Save me, save me, save me. I’ll put up a fight so don’t cage me
Save me, save me, save me, It’s not what you’ll hear from this baby
Save me, save me, save me, This ain’t a cry and it ain’t no plea
Save me, save me, save me, Please, this ain’t no fairytale love story.

Now here’s the truth, I’m gonna walk away
I couldn’t care, what you’ve got to say
It’s not a crime, to hold my head up high
Don’t need to be trying to score some guy

Now I’ve got a question I need to ask
Do I look like a damsel in distress?
No I’m not your princess or your maiden fair
And I don’t need the likes of you to

Save me, save me, save me. I’ll put up a fight so don’t cage me
Save me, save me, save me, It’s not what you’ll hear from this baby
Save me, save me, save me, This ain’t a cry and it ain’t no plea
Save me, save me, save me, Please, this ain’t no fairytale love story.

My momma taught me to do it on my own
My momma taught me how to be strong
My momma taught me to take a man down
My momma taught me how to proud
My momma taught me it’s not for a man to

Save me, save me, save me. I’ll put up a fight so don’t cage me
Save me, save me, save me, It’s not what you’ll hear from this baby
Save me, save me, save me, This ain’t a cry and it ain’t no plea
Save me, save me, save me, Please, this ain’t no fairytale love story.
Save me, save me, save me
Track Name: Too Bad
I replay it in my head
You said it should have been me in your arms instead
But you missed your chance when you got on that boat
Left me there to stay afloat

I took sometime to sit and reflect
What else can you do when you’re a total wreck
Took me a while but I came out strong
I no longer needed the strength of your arm
My heart was so heavy I thought I’d never lift it again, now it’s

It’s too late we’ve been there we’ve done that
It’s too late for you to make a comeback
Found a way to let you go
Now you’re oh so sad and all alone
It’s too bad

Present day you saw my man with me
And oh how it spiked your jealousy
Now you see the error in your ways
Truly missed me all those days

So don’t be shocked cause you said move on
I heard so I blocked all your boyish charm
Now I found a man who treats me right
When you wouldn’t put up a fight
I must have tried a thousand times to win you back, now it’s

It’s too late we’ve been there we’ve done that
It’s too late for you to make a comeback
Found a way to let you go
Now you’re oh so sad and all alone
It’s too bad

I know I might come off a little mean
Remember that you left for your selfish needs
Chin up boy you’ll figure it out
Without me I had no doubt
You know it’s for the best that we went our own ways, now it’s

It’s too late we’ve been there we’ve done that
It’s too late for you to make a comeback
Found a way to let you go
Now you’re oh so sad and all alone
It’s too late we’ve been there we’ve done that
It’s too late for you to make a comeback
Found a way to let you go
Now you’re oh so sad and all alone
It’s really too bad
It's oh so sad
I feel bad for you.
Track Name: Cooking
Oh baby what’s the hurry
You don’t even need to worry
I’m right here why don’t you settle down
Instead of giving me the run around

I never said that I was done
yet all you seem to hear was run
Have a seat and listen all the way through
I’ll give you something for you to chew

I just want to take it slow
Give us a chance see where we’ll go
So listen close since we’re at our prime
Love is like cooking gotta give it time

You gotta let it sizzle, let that burner run
You gotta let those flavors fuse so it melts right on your tongue
Once it’s just right, you need to let it sit a while
Give it time to cool, so you don’t get burned
Just give it time

This process is delicate
I’m telling you for your benefit
See I like you but with the road we’re on
Too much too fast and I’m sure to be gone

Soak it in there is no rush
I like that you still make me blush
If we run then we miss the best parts
And there’s no going back to start

It’ll feel real good real soon
A nice slow simmer in the afternoon
Listen close since we're at our prime
Love is like Cooking gotta give it time

You gotta let it sizzle, let that burner run
You gotta let those flavors fuse so it melts right on your tongue
Once it’s just right, you need to let it sit a while
Give it time to cool, so you don’t get burned
Just give it time

Ooh yeah, I like it like that
Things are coming nicely when we’re not stuck on a track
Ohh yeah, we’re here right now
It’s enough for me baby we don’t need a vow
Ooh yeah, I like it like that
Things are coming nicely when we’re not stuck on a track
Ohh yeah, we’re here right now
It’s enough for me baby we don’t need a vow

You gotta let it sizzle, let that burner run
You gotta let those flavors fuse so it melts right on your tongue
Once it’s just right, you need to let it sit a while
Give it time to cool, so you don’t get burned
Just give it time
Track Name: I Listed
Another morning and I find out that you’re gone
This ain’t the first time where I know you’ve done me wrong
No note, no phone call, and no need to say goodbye
And all I’m left with is another sigh

So I listed all the things you never said
When we kissed I knew I was in over my head
It’s so twisted all the games you play with me
So I listed to see what our fate will be

We always end up doing what you want to do
And that was only when the timing worked for you
Then again you always treat me like a queen
But that’s only when you want to be heard or seen

I listed all the things you never said
When we kissed I knew I was in over my head
It’s so twisted all the games you play with me
So I listed to see what our fate will be

Number one, how are you today
Number two, why don’t we go away
Number three, girl you look so nice
This list is getting longer I shouldn’t think twice

I’m really not a fan of waiting by the phone
I’m really not a fan of diving into the unkown
It’s time to take a look and face the cold hard facts
For now I have a list full of all your awful acts

Cause I listed all the things you never said
When we kissed I knew I was in over my head
It’s so twisted all the games you play with me
So I listed and you won’t be calling me baby.
Track Name: Last Word
You shut it down, before you heard my story
You turned around and didn’t wanna talk anymore
You cut me out unphased and unfeeling
Had to have the higher ground

I’m taking myself in a new direction
Don’t need the clutter in my mind
I only had love and affection
That’s not what you want

The last word, so you want the last word
You can have the last word.
Cause I stopped listening long ago, to you and your whole pity show

Save your breath, we both know that it won’t help
You lack the depth, to comprehend the other side
Lay it to rest, and cool it for a while
Let’s just call it quits

I’m taking myself in a new direction
Don’t need the clutter in my mind
I only had love and affection
That’s not what you want

The last word, so you want the last word
You can have the last word.
Cause I stopped listening long ago, to you and your whole pity show

Can’t you see that I’m not ready
To let you back in
You say you hope we reunite,
but I’m not the one who started this fight

The last word, so you want the last word
You can have the last word.
Cause I stopped listening long ago,
The last word, so you want the last word
You can have the last word.
Cause I stopped listening long ago,
The last word, so you want the last word
You can have the last word.
Cause I stopped listening long ago,
I’ve got the volume way down low
Goodbye, farewell since I’ve outgrown
you and your whole pity show
Track Name: The Body Knows
An Apple a day, keeps the doctor away
Prescribe me something to use to keep you at bay
A shiver down my spine, tells me your not far behind
I start to shake as you enter my mind

The body knows the body knows
The body knows the body knows
My body knows my body knows when you’re near me
The body knows the body knows
The body knows the body knows
My body knows my body knows when you’re near me

I know it isn’t right, try to fend off with all my might
But can’t resist when we enter the night
He enters through my soul, filling me up making me whole
My mind turns off as my body takes control

The body knows the body knows
The body knows the body knows
My body knows my body knows when you’re near me
The body knows the body knows
The body knows the body knows
My body knows my body knows when you’re near me

My body, your body, they feel it so heavy
There’s no denying
My body, your body, they feel it so heavy
There’s no denying

The body knows the body knows
The body knows the body knows
My body knows my body knows when you’re near me
The body knows the body knows
The body knows the body knows
My body knows my body knows when you’re near me
Track Name: You
You don’t see what I see
You keep coming to me
You take the good with the bad
You'll stay forever my man

Can we just skip the sorrys
Forget that it every happened
You know that it’s fine I’ll be alright
You know it wont happen again

I will turn around
I won't let you down
I will hold on cause I’m I’m staying right here
Right beside you dear
Say you’ll keep me near
I will hold on
Cause I’m staying right here
Mmms

You don’t turn away
You keep choosing to stay
You take me close in your arms
You’ll stay and weather the storm

Can we just skip the sorrys (ahh)
Forget that it every happened (ahh)
You know that it’s fine I’ll be alright
You know it wont happen again

I will turn around
I won't let you down
I will hold on cause I’m I’m staying right here
Right beside you dear
Say you’ll keep me near
I will hold on
Cause I’m staying right here
mms

How I did I ever get here (ahhs) Where’d I get lost on the way
My feet off the gorund didn’t want to be found
Until you
You, you, you, you

You don’t see what I see You keep coming to me
You take the good with the bad Youll stay forever my man
Track Name: Isn't it Good
Don’t let go, let’s stay a little longer
It’s feeling though, as if I belong here
The day ahead seems so far away
Do you mind if I just stay

This soft morning haze,
isn’t the only thing that’s kept me in a daze

It’s that feeling I get,
Cause you’re making me sweat
And I cant seem to find the words
Boy you did this to me,
No need to set me free
I’m yours for everyday
It’s magic what you’ve done,
Cause you’ve gotten me to say
Isn’t it good to be in love

Was this your plan, did you mean to
Make me yours, and make your life sweeter
Was it fate, or did you just wonder
Doesn’t matter, we aint goin under

Your hand in mine,
isn’t the only thing that I’ve got on my mind

It’s that feeling I get,
Cause you’re making me sweat
And I cant seem to find the words
Boy you did this to me,
No need to set me free
I’m yours for everyday
It’s magic what you’ve done,
Cause you’ve gotten me to say
Isn’t it good to be in love

I know that we’ll grow old,
Time will take it’s toll
No we might not be the same
But we’ll always hold the flame

Isn’t it good x6
Love

It’s that feeling I get,
Cause you’re making me sweat
And I cant seem to find the words
Boy you did this to me,
No need to set me free
I’m yours for everyday
It’s magic what you’ve done,
Cause you’ve gotten me to say
Isn’t it good to be in love

ooweee
