  • 03:05 Lyrics Better Than That

    I know I can treat you way better than him
    It's a no brainer, I'll go out on a limb,
    and say I can treat you better, it's a matter of fact
    Yea, I know the way that he's been
    And I can do you better, better than him
    Yeah, we belong together

    I know you deserve way better than him
    It's a no brainer, said I'll walk on a limb
    I know you deserve better than that
    You know I'd be there, you know... that
    I know you better and you're better than him
    Yeah, We should be together

    I know in a lot of ways I'll never be him
    It's just in my nature, to wanna go win, you
    I hope I never see you that sad again
    I know you're better and you're better than him
    I can treat you better, better than him

    Yeah, we belong together
    Better than him, better
    We're better, we're better for each other
    Better together
    Better than him, better than him
    Better, we're better
    We're better for each other
    Better, we're better, we're better together

  • 05:35 Lyrics Always Blue

    When I wake up in the morning
    There's something that I just gotta do
    Yea, when I get up tomorrow morning
    There's something I'm gonna do, for me and you
    Yea, we've got a real good life here,
    And I ain't got no reason to have the blues

    Yea when I get up tomorrow morning
    I'm going downtown and buy some shoes
    When I wake up tomorrow morning
    I'm going down there to buy you some shoes
    I've got me a little money,
    I'm feeling pretty good about it too, Yea, pretty damn good about it...let me talk to ya

    When I wake up in the morning
    I ain't falling back into that juice
    No , when I get up tomorrow morning
    I ain't going down there an buy no booze
    Yea, there's one thing I'm gonna tell you
    I ain't feeling down now, but I'll always be a little blue

  • 04:31 Lyrics I Wanna Thank You

    You said you'd always be there, it sounds like make believe
    I'd like to think you had no, intention to deceive
    Now I know your words were empty, and I can't believe
    No I don't believe, anything you ever told me

    Who needs the aggravation, Our hearts just disagreed
    You said you'd always be there, but that I don't believe
    Now it seems your words were empty, and I don't believe
    No I don't believe, anything you ever told me

    If you can't trust a lady, when she tells you the way
    The way that she feels about you
    Then you'll just have to say
    Go now, go now
    Go now and get outta my life

    If you can't trust a lady, when she tells you the way
    The way that she feels about you
    Then you'll just have to say
    Go now, go now...

    You know I thought we'd make it, I wish that you'd agreed
    Still I wanna thank you, 'cause now that I can see
    What you're really made of, it's all just make believe
    Now I really know all, your intentions to deceive

    If you can't trust a lady, when she tells you the way
    The way that she feels about you
    Then you'll just have to say...
    Go now, go now and get outta my life

    Go now, go now
    Thank you, thank you
    Thank you for gettin' outta my life

NOTES
As an extension of his first CD concept, MrR’s second release Always Blue adds vocals on five of the nine tracks. With a slight departure of the solo concept, MrR adds a new young talent as a bonus; Jordon Annika Smith is singing backing vocals on three tunes to complement MrR’s lead vocals. As one critic stated by using an old adage “…her voice is as pure as the driven snow, after listening to “Better Than That”, I wanted more, and I wanted to hear more of her, write her a song...”

The songs on Always Blue delve into a more contemporary “adult album alternative” genre, combining; blues (“Always Blue”), R&B/Rock (“Better than That” & “I Wanna Thank You”), Latin (“Pura Vida” & “Por Paco”), with the Jazz/Acid Jazz jams that were present on the first release Sonoran Sunset.

Some interesting original artwork by a long-time artist friend, Joan E. Lewis, wraps it all up into a nice package and makes Always Blue something to add to everyone’s CD or Digital collection.

REVIEWS
“There are many different twists and turns on this release. But whatever type of music he opts to play, MrR has an enjoyable album in Always Blue.” - Alex Henderson

“MrR’s Always Blue has some memorable moments. Russ Smith is, without question, a talented player. I am certainly open to hear whatever Smith puts out under the MrR name.” - Dan MacIntosh

“A high point of Always Blue is the backing vocal work of Jordon Annika Smith, whose sonorous voice fills up space with sound the way a rose garden scents the air.” - Wildy Haskell
