about

The long awaited follow-up to her debut EP "Break Of Day", "Last One Standing" contains a conceptual collection of newly recorded songs that have been brilliantly arranged and produced.

A creative blend of music that takes us on a musical journey, from the rock-tango style of "Formula" to the Beatlesque "Am I The Only One".

Entirely written and co-produced by Justina, "Last One Standing" offers an introspective glimpse of an artist maturing and evolving through her own sense of rejection.

You can hear her emotional pleas in the heartfelt ballad "Write Me a Song" only to break out with the more up-beat, pop oriented "My Last Goodbye".

In the end, we find this singer/songwriter clutching her guitar only to once again explore her creative palette and to finally find herself... the "Last One Standing".

Verse 1:
Whattya go by
With no formula to abide by
Judging your right and wrong?
Whattya thinking
When I open my mouth and start singing,
Are you liking my sooooooo-ooooong?

There's gotta be
Another way
Cuz once I put my foot upon thin ice
It just might be too late...


Chorus:
Cuz I've been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they've ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what's going on in their head
yea, yea , yea

Verse 2:
I guess it's not the end of the world
But I'd like to think so
When I hear those DJs over playing the
Same songs on the radio
And I'm stuck here in this deep deep hole
I need to constantly dig myself out of

Chorus:
Cuz I've been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they've ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what's going on in their head
yea, yea , yea yea, yea

Bridge
Oh whoa, oh woah , woo- oo-o- ah, woo-oo-o-ah
Woo-oo-o-ah, wooooooah
Oh whoa, oh woah , woo- oo-o- ah, woo-oo-o-ah
Woo-oo-o-ah, wooooooah

Chorus:
Cuz I've been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they've ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what's going on in their head

Cuz I've been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they've ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what's going on in their head
yea, yea , yea yea, yea

Verse 1:
Hey...
Write me a song
Show me your love
Is that asking for much?

Pre Chorus:
I know you got it in you
So stop it with your dumb excuse
I'm not looking for anything profound

Chorus:
So write,
Write me a song
Show me your love
That's all I want
From you

Verse 2:
Lately...
I haven't been myself
Like a book on a shelf
Are my words kept there confined

Pre Chorus:
I've seen you work your magic
I doubt the well is running dry
I'm not looking for anything profound

Chorus:
So write,
Write me a song
Show me your love
That's all I want

Bridge:
So now you got a bit of my melody
Won't you try alittle bit just for me?

Break:
Babe...
Write me a song
Show me your love
Is that asking for much?

Bridge:

(Guitar Solo)

Chorus:
So bring
Bring me the stars
Keep them safe
Call them ours
Whoa , whoa
Oooh...

Track Name: My Last Goodbye
a"My Last Goodbye"
words and music by Justina Carubia

You and me
We were meant to be
They can tell you that they love you but
They'll be sayin
Something they don't really mean

These words I say to you are true
But still you don't believe me

So this is my last goodbye
You see me cry but still
Tell me you don't love me
This is my last goodbye
Before I go away...

You and me
We were meant to be
Last time you told me that you loved me but
You were sayin it
Only to get rid of me

These words I say to you are true
But still you don't believe me

So this is my last goodbye
You see me cry but still
Tell me you don't love me
This is my last goodbye
Before I go away
This is my last goodbye
My last goodbye
This is my last goodbye
Before I go away

The water's pourin over my head
And you watch me drown
But deep down I know you wanna save me

So this is my last goodbye
You see me cry but still
Tell me you don't love me
This is my last goodbye
Before I go away
This is my last goodbye
My last goodbye
This is my last goodbye
My last goodbye
Track Name: Am I the Only One?
"Am I the Only One?"
Lyrics and Music by Justina Carubia
©2007

Verse 1:
Every single day, I step into the crowd
Maybe someone will see me
Camouflaged in faces, voices loud
And I wonder why no one hears me

Pre Chorus:
I'm like the last kid standing
When everybody else already has their team

Chorus:
Am I the only one
That they don't see?
Am I the only one to yell
When inside I wanna scream
Am I the only one,
To hate me?

Verse 2:
All I ever give is sympathy
To the ones who needed me
Now everyone's hiding
And I'm left here to seek

Pre Chorus:
Cuz even when the sun is out
And the day is shining,
All I ever see is rain...

Chorus:
Am I the only one
That they don't see?
Am I the only one to yell
When inside I wanna scream
Am I the only one,
To hate me?

Bridge:
Ooooh, ooooh
(Guitar Solo)

Chorus:
Am I the only one
That they don't see?
Am I the only one to yell
When inside I wanna scream
Am I the only one,
To hate me?

Am I the only one
That they don't see?
Am I the only one to yell
When inside I wanna scream
Am I the only one,
To hate me?

Coda:
Cuz when I look at myself
I see someone else
That's anyone but me
