We can have a new start Make a life in a new scene You and me on the run To California sun I can play my guitar You can star on the big screen We can do what the hell we want Our lives had just begun I could tell That second thoughts were in your mind and You could tell I’d leave here today I couldn’t stay here And you couldn’t go Oh no Oh no We were young and in love Was the time of our lives But your daddy would scream and shout Try to put the whole thing in doubt Pay the rent, pay the bills How you gonna survive? We can work it out We’ll figure it out They convinced you That maybe you should finish up what you started But I had plans That I wouldn’t break By the time of July All the dreaming was over Oh no Oh no Summer’s here We’ll always have the college year We’re never gonna be back here It’s over now We’re older now Now you’ve got a man and a son And I’m still living life on the run (on the run) We used to relate in the times we were younger But we’re older now It’s over now Summer’s here We’ll always have the college year We’re never gonna be back here It’s over now We’re older now I’m heading out I’ll see you around Next year MOVIE DIALOGUE FROM “A Star Is Born (1937) “Why what would you do if you did go to Hollywood?” “I’m going to be somebody!”

I was so down I was empty At the bottom Counting pennies Life hadn't turned out even close to what I planned I was lonely Feeling awful Hitting too hard On the bottle I was a shell of what you'd call a broken man All of the magazines say There's a place that is magical Where all your dreams will be made You can have it all in California Everyone's a star in California Be just who you are in California You'll get it all Was a new man On a mission Had a grand plan And ambition All of my dreams were waiting on the other side As I pulled in LA They were toasting the day That I finally came with the finest champagne We've all just been waiting here for you You can have it all in California Everyone's a star in California Be just who you are in California It has it all I always thought it'd be so hard All I had to do was travel far Now I'm a star You can have it all in California Everyone's a star in California Be just who you are Yeah, California has it all You just gotta get to California It's all you gotta do 'Cuz in California We're all stars You're a star Here you are Yeah, here we are

Got a place at the top that’s waiting patiently I think I’m ready to move up to the major league I’m about to blow up just like some TNT Wish I could bring you along But there’s just room for me I’m gonna try to say this modestly (modestly) I’m gonna be the world’s most popular celebrity Give me a follow on the social meeds (social meeds) Yeah, you got to meet the biggest thing this world has ever seen Fortune and fame Fortune and fame You’ll see my name on the marquee Poppin’ champagne On private planes Making it rain with my money Smile for me honey When they say that my shows are something spiritual I’ll assure ‘em that they’re not quite a miracle I’m just trying to connect the Average Joe to me I’ll be the best in the world at speaking humbly You’re gonna see my face on magazines (magazines) I’ll only ride inside my 30-foot stretch limousine Dropping my famous friends’ names casually At least that’s how Johnny Stamos told me to be Fortune and fame Fortune and fame You’ll see my name on the marquee Poppin’ champagne On private planes Making it rain with my money They’ll try to knock me down Get the king down to the ground But don’t believe those tabloid fake news stories They’ll be making up ‘bout me Fortune and fame Fortune and fame You’ll see my name on the marquee Fortune and fame Fortune and fame Making it rain with my money Fortune and fame Fortune and fame One of these days I’ll get lucky I won’t complain How my life has changed But I’ll have no time for you, honey Yeah, my time is money now You’ll know his name One of these days He’ll have fortune and fame You’ll know his name One of these days He’ll have fortune and fame

Someday you'll find That all you're looking for has been in front of you Time after time I know that they have let you down and hardened you As you pick up the pieces I can hold some too Don't push down your feelings Deep inside of you Like you always do Someday you'll see me My jaded love My jaded love Someday come find me My jaded love My jaded love I'd wait around If I thought that there was a chance That you would see me something more than Just another clown Who brings you up and make you laugh But I have nothing left Though you may have your reasons I may have some too Love can have some meaning If you want it to Someday you'll see me My jaded love My jaded love Someday come find me My jaded love My jaded love Look in my eyes And tell me what you see Is there nothing I can do? I leave it up to you To take this Wherever you want it to (ooh) Someday you'll see me My jaded love My jaded love Someday come find me My jaded love My jaded love My jaded, my jaded, my jaded love (repeat) MOVIE DIALOGUE FROM “A Star Is Born” (1937) “We’re going to be married.” “Both of us.” “To each other. What do you think of that?”

Time flies Ever so swiftly I’m here Replaying history Watching in my mind The times when you were beside me Driving all night With you right by my side I play, stop, and rewind All these moments with you over and over Lonely Mornings without you I close my eyes to Fall back to dream about you Sunrise in flight Over midwestern lights Seeing you at first sight I just want to live these over and over Nintendo nights Even all the dumb fights Are the times of my life I just want to live ‘em over and over again I would give all I have Just to live ‘em over and over and over again I keep taking photographs I’m just trying to make it last Holding on for another day Because all of my life ‘Till the day you arrived Was a waste of my time I just want to live this over and over Driving all night With you right by my side I play, stop, and rewind All these moments with you over and over again I would give all I have just to Live these moments Over and over again I would give all I have Just to live this moment Over and over again

She’s picking up velocity Prepare for the invasion She’s about to reach her destination She’s flying into N.Y.C.

Fire from the sky In the Silver State Took 58 One more sun would rise Before they would take Our hearts to break I saw Charlie T. Just a week and a half before We were refugees But we never really left the war Fire in the pouring rain It’s the kind of thing You can’t explain Things will never be the same But I can’t complain 100,000 lives On the news today Who’s to blame? You and I inside We’ll hide away Until it’s safe Life can never be Anything like it was before They just make believe ‘Till the flames grow too high to ignore Fire in the pouring rain It’s the kind of thing You can’t explain Things will never be the same We all radiate Then fade away Fire in the pouring rain On the news today Who’s to blame?
Everything is gonna change We can run away But we can’t escape Life Passes by But with every night Comes a new day to get up and Fight Dry your eyes We can all make it out alive Fire in the pouring rain It’s the kind of thing You can’t explain Things will never be the same We all radiate Then fade away Fire in the pouring rain On the news today Who’s to blame?
Everything is gonna change But I can’t complain Me, I can’t complain

I’m lost in a dream Nothing is quite what it seems If I could make it back to you I might be finally at peace I’m flying through space Don’t recognize this place Just trying to navigate my way back home At a feverish pace I’ve lost my way from you (Can you find me?) I will be home soon I must be dreaming I’m high in the sky But I don’t know how to land this flight Am I still dreaming? Am I still alive? Or am I on the other side? I’m on my way I’m checking my E.T.A. I don’t know where the hell I’m going But I’m leaving today Am I losing my way? Am I losing my mind? Am I going insane? I ain’t living for nothing else Except your sweet embrace I lost my way from you (Can you find me?) I just can’t go on without you I must be dreaming I’m high in the sky But I don’t know how to make this right Am I still dreaming? Am I still alive? Or am I on the other side? You were right The whole time All the red in my eyes Was controlling my mind I was on the wrong side Yeah, all along I thought you were wrong But we should’ve stayed inside Now I’m stuck here forever You were right The whole time All the red in my eyes Was controlling my mind I was on the wrong side Now I’ll fight To survive In this place I’ve arrived But please know I will try To come back to you (back to you) I’ll return to you (I’ll return to you) From the other side

World -1 01:07
There’s a place that I’m from And a place that I used to know Now I’m stuck in a loop Somewhere that won’t let me go I believed, I believed, I believed There was nothing more Now I’m trying to get back And it’s all that I’m fighting for I’m lost in The Minus World It’s some kind of timeless world I swim through the sky like a bird But I just want to go down (down, down, down, down…) I’m stuck in The Minus World It’s far from the finest world Keeps lifting me higher When all that I want Is to reach the ground

I couldn’t see Through the red in my eyes They had control Of my mind You tried to plead But I put up a fight I couldn’t tell wrong From the right Now I find myself Lost and alone I can’t find a way Back Home Don’t say a prayer for me No, I need no sympathy Think of the times we had Don’t be sad This ain’t no tragedy You tried to speak A little truth to me But all that I saw were conspiracies Couldn’t see how you couldn’t see it It was all there in black and white Now I see I was wrong As I look from the other side I believed in everything They sold I joined The Red Eyed Army Of lost souls Don’t say a prayer for me No, I need no sympathy Just think of the times we had Don’t be sad This ain’t no tragedy Yeah, it’s not lost on me That there’s a certain irony To my story Was handed the whole world But it was filled with misery That’s the tragedy This ain’t no tragedy So don’t say a prayer I need no sympathy So don’t say a prayer Don’t say it, don’t say a prayer Don’t say a prayer for me I’ll be all right On this other side Don’t live in misery Don’t me mad Don’t be sad ‘Cuz this ain’t no tragedy This ain’t no tragedy This ain’t no tragedy So don’t say a prayer for me ‘Cuz this ain’t no tragedy

It came up upon the shore We weren’t prepared for this war It came from across the sea Useless was our weaponry It used us with mind control While leaders were bought and sold We lined up out in the streets Ensuring our quick defeat I lost myself Lost all that I had Please pull me back to you The second attack came soon We lost half our troops that June They told us to hold the line (Hold the line!) As fire shot from its eyes It stood forty stories tall It tried to destroy us all We’d been sold another lie That it’d disappear by summertime (It will disappear) I lost myself Lost all that I had Please pull me back to you I’ll fight like hell Through this strange new land Just to get back to you MOVIE DIALOGUE FROM “Cosmos: War Of The Planets” (1977) “The immortal monster has killed your companion. Many of us have died. The monster kills all those who dare to go out of the caves.” Now I am ready Ready to go Now I am ready Let’s hit the road Now I am ready (I’ve lost myself) Ready to go (Lost all that I have) Please pull me back to you Just like my dreams This world’s not what it seems I would give all I have Just to be with you for one more moment

Come back alive You never told her you loved her Before you walked out She cried and pleaded to stop you But you didn’t turn around And now you’re lost here all on your own You joined the new Red Eyed Army And you never thought twice Oh, now you see the only thing worth fighting for Is what you just sacrificed And now you’re stuck here in the unknown It’s time to open your eyes And live the rest of your life Come back alive again (Come back alive, come back alive) Leave the devil behind It’s time to open your mind And come alive again (Come back alive, come back alive) You better hope she lets you atone For the day you left her alone If you come back alive Come back alive (Come back alive) It’s time to open your eyes And live the rest of your life Come back alive again Leave the devil behind It’s time to open your mind And come alive again Just take one step at a time Every inch is a mile To come back alive again And when you open your eyes The world that you left behind Will come alive again I’m alive!
19.
I have travelled near and far And now that I am home I’ll never leave you ‘Cuz there’s nothing worth me ever leaving for I could never find the words To tell you how I feel And now I see you I think that I am speechless even more I’ve returned To you from where they sent me I’ve returned To start a family I was lost But now you have found me I’ve returned If you will have me I look around and take it in An ocean full of stars It’s like I’m dreaming Except I finally have you in my arms I’ve returned It’s so disorienting I’m still trying To get my bearings I feel like I’m still descending Is this not A happy ending? (Am I still dreaming? Am I still dreaming? Am I still dreaming?…)

about

A decade after the release of multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter Timmy Sean’s 2010 debut solo album, Songs From & Inspired By Noisewater ("One of the decade's most impressive pop discs” ~Absolute Pop), comes his long awaited full-length follow up, a Stephen King-inspired “powerpop rock opera” entitled A Tale From The Other Side.

ATFTOS follows the story of a young man named Guy who finds himself with everything he ever dreamt of in life - fortune, fame, love - only to have it lead him on a strange journey with monsters, a Red-Eyed Army, and a Minus World. Is “The Other Side” a place, a time, or a frame of mind?

Written, performed, and recorded almost entirely by Timmy Sean quarantining alone in his Los Angeles home studio during the pandemic of 2020, Tale weaves in themes and story beats that may seem eerily familiar to those living through these strange times. Though Timmy describes the album as a “fictional supernatural thriller, monster movie of an album,” we warn the listener that they may find bone-chilling parallels to real life events from things that they will encounter on…

…THE OTHER SIDE.
