about

After many years of recording and producing other artists, Paul Dobbe has decided to take that experience into producing his first EP, "Starter Kit". Also a"first" for Paul, was writing all the material for this release. Starting with "Back & Forth". This track came together quickly with the vocal master Elayne Terranova, and Paul's old friend from Vegas, Dennis Durante (bass guitar). Making it easy to jump to the 2nd song written, "My Heart Is Home With You". Again Elayne's vocal inspired Paul to finished and to start writing, recording the 3rd tune, "What U Mean 2 Me". Again Dennis helped Paul with Devin Bender's electrifying, electric ukulele. "So We May Understand" was recorded next. A "Paul Only" recording with Paul's signature vocal arrangement. Next came the sad lament "It's Over" which Paul felt that only Lainey Dionne could interpret, with Paul playing the piano. At this point of the recording, Paul and guitar wiz, Fred Mostly, working on "Once Again", thinking that this would be the last cut on the CD, but Paul wrote the whimsical "Yin & Yang", roped in UK guitarist Louis Calisse while playing all the other instruments. "Starter Kit" is Paul Dobbe's 1st musical adventure. Give it spin!!

Track Name: It's Over
“It's Over” Music & Lyrics by Paul Dobbe

First time I saw you
Your smile called me over
I couldn't find a word to say
I was too shy

Winter turned into spring
We did everything
I won't forget
The promises, the hugs, and the kisses

I don't regret
That we met
And the time we spent
It's a pity when love dies out
But I know now
It's over

You'd text your love
My heart would just jump
All of life was goin' my way
What could change
I would listen to your stories
I would take it all in
Your brown eyes captured me
I couldn't fight back

I don't regret
That we met
And the time we spent
It's a pity when love dies out
But I know now
It's over

I hope someday we can laugh
Someday we can sit together
All our troubles laid to rest
And wish we could go back again

I loved you
But that wasn't enough for you
You had moved on
You broke my heart

By the end of summer
Our love had changed
Winter skies came in
Then you stopped coming 'round

Don't regret having met
Don't regret having met
Don't regret having met
Don't regret
Don't regret
Don't regret

Track Name: So We May Understand
So We May Understand. Music & Lyrics: Paul Dobbe

Seen this story

Know the people

Played this game, once before

We all want love 

We must give love 

To everyone, anywhere, anytime 


Chorus: 
Do we touch the souls we love

Can we heal the scars we see

And do we know how to feel the hurt 

And stop the hate, here on earth 


Guitar solo


It's a lot to ask of us

To guide the way, to light the path

Have faith, to find the hope 

So we may understand

Musical interlude

Chorus: 
Do we touch the souls we love

Can we heal the scars we see

And do we know how to feel the hurt 

And stop the hate, here on earth


Is this the world today 

That we’ll hand off tomorrow.

Track Name: What U Mean 2 Me
What U Mean 2 Me Music & Lyrics: Paul Dobbe

Verse 1: Girl you're the one
I'm no fun
When you're not with me
You know I wish we'd do
When last was it
Just you and me
That's how it should be

Chorus: Why can't you see, what you're doing to me
Open your eyes, don't you realize
What you mean to me
Take a breath
We don't have to rush now

Verse 2: Darling believe in me
I can't be what you see
The man I should be
When your mask is the face I see
Will you ever let me into your world
To listen to your inner thoughts

Chorus: Why can't you see, what you're doing to me
Open your eyes, don't you realize
What you mean to me
Take a breath
We don't have to rush now

Bridge1: Instrumental

Bridge2: The magic starts now
When you light up my heart
When your hand touches mine
Sends shocks down my spine

Chorus: Why can't you see, what you're doing to me
Open your eyes, don't you realize
What you mean to me
Take a breath
We don't have to rush now (repeat)
Track Name: My Heart is Home with You
My Heart is Home with You Music & Lyrics: Paul Dobbe

Verse 1A:
As I wander the streets at night
Thinking of the words we said
Why didn't I just agree with you
Only words that keep us apart
Verse 1B:
What do I do, can you hear me
What can I do, what don't I see
Is it so difficult to let your heart go
Is it so difficult I can't know

Pre-chorus:
Sometimes it feels like we're in heaven
Sometimes it feels like god damm hell

Chorus 1:
To find the streets always, have lead to your heart
Only to realize my heart is, home with you

Verse 2A:
As I look up at the stars
Will they show me my destiny
Can I change and sing another tune
Will the stars reveal to me another way to go
Verse 2B:
A way that I will show to you
I'll be faithful and true to you
I hope that I will find the street to you
Where you're always ready with your warm embrace

Pre-chorus:
Sometimes it feels like heaven
Sometimes it feels like burning hell
Chorus 2:
To find the streets have always lead to your heart
Only to realize my heart is home with you

Instrumental

Verse 3:
The stars aren't out tonight
I'll find my own moonlight
I close my eyes
I see your smile
Then I'm home again

Chorus 3 :
Every street that I walk on
Leads me to your heart
Only to realize my heart is home with you

Outro:
I'm searching for your heart
Track Name: Yin & Yang
Yin & Yang Music & Lyrics by Paul Dobbe

One, two, three, four
Ya tease me, than you please me
There's never knowing which way you'll go, go, go
Maybe you need to trust me
Baby, you save me, you lose me
There's never enough of your touch, so much
Could there be a better, path to your heart
Take my hand and let me know
I say what I mean
Tell me, tell me, what you want to hear

That's what I love, it's always different
You're the half, that I've been missing
You're my yang to my yin oo-oo-oo-oo

Darling, you show me, you teach me
There's always time for our love, our love
Maybe I need to trust you
Honey, you start me, you stop me
With the things you say with your words, your looks
Could there be a better, path your to your heart
Is it yes or no
I say what I mean
Tell me, tell me, what you want to hear

That's what I love, it's always different
You're the half, that I've been missing
You're my yang to my yin oo-oo-oo-oo

Sweetheart, you kiss me, you slap me
There's always strings attached to your love, your love
Maybe you need to trust me
Baby, you embrace me, you shun me, you chase me
Then kiss me, then kiss me
There's got to be an easier, path to your heart
Tell me which way to go
I say what I mean
Tell me, tell me, what you want to hear

That's what I love, it's always different
You're the half, that I've been missing
You're my yang to my yin oo-oo-oo-oo

That's what I love, it's always different
You're the half, that I've been missing
You're my yang to my yin oo-oo-oo-oo
