  • Someone asked me to sing a song about an Oreo who turns evil after his family is killed. So I did. Laugh out loud and subscribe to my channel, beautiful people. — Kavalier

    "P-E-R-F-E-C-T", for my perfectionist friend, Joel. Demand the best from the universe, friends, and you just might get it. Free downloads here. Much love. — Kavalier

    I wrote an original Game of Thrones-themed song on request. Have a listen, friends.

    Wrote a song tonight that playfully discusses the heart-racing nature of love in very scientific terms. If you like what you hear, please subscribe to my channel. There’ll be much more, and if you send in a request, my next song might be for you! — Kavalier

         My Cardiac Muscle 

    You make my cardiac muscle pump blood through my vascular system really quickly. 
    I am so into you I’m panicking; I feel fragile and stickly. 
    I don’t know if I can handle all this oxygen in my hemoglobin. 
    I’m feeling high on endorphins; my neuropeptides are exploding, and I feel fine in their buzz. 
    But I’m afraid a crash is coming when my body can’t take anymore of your drug. 


    I wrote a song for Denny’s. Sorry. I get a little emotional about my cured meats. — KC


    Doc says my heart can’t handle it.
    My diet is too high in fat.
    What’s a man supposed to do
    when bacon is his favorite food group?
    Now I don’t mind a little green on my plate,
    but I live for an oinker’s taste.
    What’s a man supposed to do
    when bacon is his favorite food group?
    Eat at Denny’s until his life is through.

    Free downloads of this song are here!

    They actually reblogged it…thanks for all the positive feedback fellow Denny’s and bacon lovers. I made the song available for free download. See the link above. — KC

    I recently met Jessica, and she told me about her blog Hashtag Hearts where she posts couples’ love stories. We agreed it would be fun if I wrote songs about some of the stories, and Virginia and Forrest’s definitely jumped out at me. Virginia sees their meeting as fate, and I can’t help but agree that a bunch of small things had to happen just right for them to ever meet. Everyone’s love story is like that, and that’s what makes love so special. I was thinking about how special this is, and this little song just plopped out of my head. The lyrics are built around the concept of fate, and I included small details from their story like the “hurdle” the heart jumps (because Virginia is a track and field athlete) and the metaphor about an island at sea (because they met at a beach). I hope you enjoy it, friends. Free downloads of this song are on my Bandcamp page here. If you like my work, please like my musicians page on Facebook and send me a message about it. Much, much love! — Kavalier


    I don’t know who to thank for meeting you.
    Lots of small moments added up to make us two.
    Somehow it feels like it was always meant to be.
    That’s why if you look up “fate” in the dictionary, you’ll see:
    you and me.

    We grew up thousands of miles apart,
    each and every one a hurdle for the heart.
    But some magic magnet pulled you to me.

    I was just a tiny island in the sea,
    prepared to live the long life of the lonely.
    But of all the shores, you washed up on my beach.

    I stared at pictures of the blogger at bakaguts and brainstormed—with lots of mind-thunder and lightning—and when the storm calmed, this song was playing softly. Much love. — Kavalier

         Your Parts

    Do those brown eyes see what they do to me?
    Does that soft skin feel the rhythm in my chest?
    'Cause you don't know the power of your parts
    and how they weigh on my heart.
    Do those ears hear how my body screams?
    Does that mind think about being with me?

    I wrote a sad song about love tonight. Surprise, surprise. Enjoy, friends. — KC

         You Aren’t The One She Wants

    Maybe it’s the way I talk: I mean what I say.
    Maybe it’s the way I quiet when the world is gray.

    I can hear the voice in my head:
    you aren’t the one she wants.

    Maybe it’s the way I want what’s skin deep.
    Maybe it’s the way I wear my heart on my sleeve.

    Maybe I’ll survive.
    But maybe she’s just right
    for me.

    The blogger over at mylittleheart-x told me she is struggling to choose between two loves (which is lucky, really, because most of us can’t even find one). I decided to write a song about the problem with having to make such a choice—about, naturally, wanting to keep both. Again, I’ve been playing with Fruity Loops to build fuller songs; I enjoy the individual tracks, but their melding is a bit clumsy. Learning, learning. Enjoy, friends. Much love. — Kavalier

         Don’t Make Me Choose

    I’ve got options:
    one in the left hand,
    one in the right,
    and I shouldn’t take both,
    but I might.

    I can flip a coin or draw straws,
    but I’d rather be greedy and have it all.
    Girls don’t make me choose
    between you or you.

    Try choosing between 
    water or air, heart or mind—
    a man needs both to survive,
    and I need you both at night.

    For so long it was just little old me;
    now I have more than I could ever need.

    Tonight’s song is for Karin at thebegreen. She told me how she barely escaped a dangerous relationship, and how she found a new, wonderful one. The first verse of this song uses words written by her new partner. I wish them both the best. Free downloads of this song are here (just enter $0 as the price). Much love, all. — Kavalier Calm

         Even If It Takes

    I wish time wasn’t so thin.
    Forgive me if I sound intense,
    but there is something about you,
    and I will find out what it is

    even if it takes all night—
    even if it takes my whole life.

    I had hands before they touched your skin,
    but they were wasted.
    Let them search your length
    to find what beauty is

    even if it takes all night—
    even if it takes my whole life.

    Even if it takes all my strength,
    even if it makes my heart break,
    I want to learn all of you.

    For the lovely Rachel at eclecticpandas. Listen/download for free here: Weak by Kavalier Calm


    Well, you don’t see what I see
    when you look in the mirror.
    Beauty comes so easy to you,
    you think it can’t be true,
    but you make me weak at the knees.
    You make me weak.

    I am sand on the shore of your grace,
    and I want you to make a castle out of me.
    Shape me as you please, oh as you will;
    just let me feel your hands.
    You make me weak at the knees.
    You make me weak.

    Followers, have you ever been in a love like this? Have you ever been trapped in the #friendzone, but it was your own, stupid fault? — KC

         Feelings Like This

    He’s the boy of every girl’s dreams:
    you can take him home to mom; you can take him in your sheets.
    She’s beautiful in a small and shy way:
    she’s realer than the rest, not another bitch, Barbie.

    They’ve been friends for far too long.
    Love’s come upon them like sleep: slow, then all at once.
    They believe they control their feelings;
    but feelings like this, they control you.

    They try and play dumb, but they can feel the change.
    They deny it to their friends, say things are still the same.
    But how about that first kiss? And the second one, too?
    Is that something “just friends” do?

    His mind flip flops like a fish on land,
    and she’s too scared to put the truth in his hands.
    They go back and forth between a laugh and a fight;
    they won’t admit that this happiness is right.
