about

Baby Blue is proud to present Goodfight's “Florida Room,” a glowing debut highlighting the group’s youthful, nuanced energy. The brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Andrew Forman, Goodfight has quickly blossomed into a rich collaboration between members Annique Monet, David Zyto, Daryl Johns & Guy Paz.

“Florida Room” balances the colorful warmth and whimsy of Forman's roots in South Florida with lyrical content reflecting on the emotional push and pull of life in New York City. Across eight tracks, Goodfight naturally meanders through themes of yearning, ambition, heartbreak and euphoria. On “Lucy,” Forman cleverly transforms the ritual of enjoying a loose cigarette into a tale exploring the extreme love and loneliness tied to city life - “Lucy darling won’t you walk here with me / these cold avenues and I need your love Lucy.” The slow, wistful ballad “Florida Room” captures the fond memories of days gone by while simultaneously accepting the present distance from a place that was once home - “Florida room/ let’s reassume / that life will go on / if I don't come home soon.”

The band’s dynamism exhibits a clear, confident sense of songwriting, storytelling, and musicianship that provides a refreshing dose of honesty and vulnerability. Goodfight’s infectious, loving zeal makes it hard not to want to simply smile and dance.

Track Name: Bird On A Mountain Top
I look up at the mountain and climb atop,
and when I reach the summit I’ll decide if I want to stop.
I may just keep on going up into the sky and the clouds
that lie to be found.

And one day or another I’ll be the bird,
who flies around the atmosphere until I am feeling bored

And when the day comes,
it’s not like I’ve never been here before,
and when the day’s done,
I’ll be waiting looking for more

I fly below the stars that dance over Earth,
I want to be the space exploring bird never known before.
The one that gives emojis their emotions and colors Earth
a different tie dye.

I’ll sit down on the mountain top, get a view,
and when I’m satisfied I know there’s bird work still left to do

And when the day comes,
it’s not like I've never been here before,
and when the day’s done,
I’ll be waiting looking for more
Track Name: Lucy
My friends won't get me when I say that I’m from Porto Rico (portorico.com).
One Danish blend, a lucy, grab and walk it’s how the week goes.
Wishful thinking wishes life away, if you waste today don't fret,
cause you never really had a say.

Lucy darling won't you walk here with me.
These cold avenues and I need your love Lucy.

Come rain, or shine, or snow, I don't mind
Come in my life, doors open wide

If we traveled west, I’d still need my lovely Lucy.
Keeps me warm at night, she always gives me sound advice like
wishful thinking wishes life away, if you waste today don't fret,
cause you never really had a say.

Lucy darling won't you walk here with me.
These cold avenues and I need your love Lucy.

Come rain, or shine, or snow, I don't mind
Come in my life, doors open wide
Track Name: Florida Room
Florida room
like warm days in June,
that creep right by us
with nothing to prove.

Florida room
slow afternoon,
that melts in the sky
to promise the moon.

Light, moonlight,
escorts the fine night,
and writes off our years,
just meet me back here,

In Florida Room…

Florida room,
lets reassume,
that life will go on,
if I don't come home soon.

Light, moonlight,
escorts the fine night,
and writes off our years,
just meet me back here,

Florida room,
lets reassume,
that life will go on,
if I don't come home soon.
Track Name: Oklahoma
I’ll write these words laters,
don’t have the patience.
I’m not about to sit around
and contemplate some silly rhyme scheme for you.
Cause you’re not worth it and this song’s not about you.

Now that I’m free to do everything and anything,
I’m living a dream in that its not actually happening.
I’ll wake up eventually but probably…

Not today
no not, no not today

wait

Talking to people,
meeting new people,
forcing a smile,
I’m described as a regular people person
This conversations amazing but really

I’m miles away in Oklahoma,
where I spend all my day in the shade
of a crab apple tree
I’ll go back eventually but probably…

Not today
no not, no not today
I said not today,
no not today,
no not no not not not today

Today is the day that everything changes,
I can't explain but something's different
and I’m feeling a certain way
Who could be to blame but the coffee

And everything goes when you're in control,
repeat to yourself,
this suit and tie makes me just like everyone else,
I can change my destiny but probably

Not today
no not, no not today

I said not today,
no not today,
no not no not not not today
Track Name: Gums (feat. Dion Kerr)
Cool kids with the trash looks,
get together with cigarettes flickering
like candles in a cave.

Dirty gums and filthy minds.
Leather upon leather.
Chains and boots that crack against the concrete blocks
boom and screech.

The shrills of noise that occupies the room
where nobody comes to clap,
only to show blood and bruises.

No one is perfect
but there’s something about a guy with the right kind of guitar
that makes him feel like God.
Track Name: Test Cheddar
She always used to write me back,
well Dac you know she had you by the hook
you better relax.

Live a life, turn off your phone.
You know you're playing silly games with her and losing alone.

It’s not that hard so take my advice,
and know no words could ever change it
so just cut your ties.

Live your life, it’s easier this way
cause if you think she's busy missing you,
you’re eating your lies.

Really, I’m fine
Sincerely, not a care on my mind

Dac was my pal by now for seven years,
she sighed into a paper cup and then laughed to tears.
Pushed her agenda till the end and now the end has passed,
so Dac reply I serve my purpose functionless am I.

Flowing, tonight
You’ll breeze by, through these times.

Hear me, you’re fine.
This feeling, working wonders overnight.

Hear me, I’m fine.
Sincerely, not a care on my mind.
Track Name: Guacamole
Don't tell me the names of the songs that I should listen,
or tell me the places you've been that I should visit.

Don't tell me what clothes to wear, or talk about my greasy hair.
Don’t say that you've been there when I’m alone and nowhere.

I won't fall for that trap,
swooning baby, maybe lady,
like mashed potatoes and gravy.

Tell me the story of Arlene the avocado,
who lived on an island once known as El Dorado.
Tell me about the day Arlene went and ran away,
with us, on that sunny may as we ate our Guacamole.

I might fall for that trap,
swooning baby, maybe lady,
may amaze me or just bait me.

Swooning baby, maybe lady,
is tomorrow’s wrapping paper.

Swooning baby….
