Billionaire

BILLIONAIRE
(by Téa Petrovic, Jeff Dawson, and Krischan Grohne)

Anther Saturday night
I should be out with the guys
Smoking Cuban cigars, drinking Bourbon on ice
But here I am thinking of you

Don’t need no platinum Rolex
on my wrist
A Bentley in my garage, cross them off my list
No I don’t want anything but you

And no matter how I spin it
My heart’s all in it
‘Cause your love, your love makes me

TALLER THAN A MOUNTAIN
BRIGHTER THAN A DIAMOND
YOU GOT ME WALKING ON AIR
STRONGER THAN A LION
WHEN YOU WALK BESIDE ME
I’M A BILLIONAIRE

Another Saturday night
The band is ready to play
Ladies all dressed up but it’s not the same
No I don’t want anyone but you

And no matter how I spin it
My heart’s all in it
‘Cause your love, your love makes me

TALLER THAN A MOUNTAIN
BRIGHTER THAN A DIAMOND
YOU GOT ME WALKING ON AIR
STRONGER THAN A LION
WHEN YOU WALK BESIDE ME
I’M A BILLIONAIRE

Girl you must have super powers
‘Cause I’ve tossed and turned for a thousand hours
You got my number
And I don’t know how you did it
But no matter how I spin it
My heart’s all in it

[Lyrics]


Cake

CAKE
(by Téa Petrovic, Jeff Dawson, and Mike James)

Remember the days when we would just hang out
Then we kissed and we were both like ‘wow’
Butterflies and summer fireworks
And I’m happy to make your little bubble burst

‘CAUSE YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
I LOVE THAT I’M THE ONE TO BREAK IT TO YOU
‘CAUSE YOU SMILE EVERY TIME
WHEN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
Ooh ooh ooh

The time we carved our names into a tree
was the first time you told me that you love me
Our bond like our coffee extra strong
so let them be envious, we have what everybody wants

‘CAUSE YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
I LOVE THAT I’M THE ONE TO BREAK IT TO YOU
‘CAUSE YOU SMILE EVERY TIME
WHEN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
Ooh ooh ooh

From Ring Around the Rosy
To the night we spun the bottle
I wondered if we both felt the same
They were just games that we were playing
Simon Says we’re changing
Growing up can be a real pain

BUT YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
I LOVE THAT I’M THE ONE TO BREAK IT TO YOU
‘CAUSE YOU SMILE EVERY TIME
WHEN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE

YAH YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
I LOVE THAT I’M THE ONE TO BREAK IT TO YOU
‘CAUSE YOU SMILE EVERY TIME
WHEN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
Ooh ooh ooh

[Lyrics]


Couldn't Let U Walk Away

COULDN’T LET U WALK AWAY
(by Téa Petrovic & Krischan Grohne)

You and me - business unfinished
Your candy kiss left me up in the air
Now we’re together, that could change in a minute
Back and forth we’ll never get anywhere

Baby we have got to talk
And figure ourselves out

EVEN IF I TRIED
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY
UNTIL WE MAKE UP OUR MINDS
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY
UNTIL WE MAKE OR BREAK THIS LOVE
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY
UNTIL WE KNOW WE GOT IT RIGHT
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY

I really hate being stuck in the middle
Little by little I’m breaking down
I can’t handle playing second fiddle
We gotta stop and turn it around

Baby we have got to talk
And figure ourselves out

EVEN IF I TRIED
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY
UNTIL WE MAKE UP OUR MINDS
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY
UNTIL WE MAKE OR BREAK THIS LOVE
I COULDN’ T LET YOU LET YOU WALK AWAY
UNTIL WE KNOW WE GOT IT RIGHT

Tell me isn’t this love worth saving
I want you to know I still
I love, I love, I love you
And I don’t know what the right way is
All I, all I can say is...

[Lyrics]


My True Love

MY TRUE LOVE
(by Téa Petrovic, Jeff Dawson, and Krischan Grohne)

This is a confession
Of my heart’s affection
Gotta get it off my chest how
I feel inside

Maybe we can spend some time
I would love it if you’d talk to me
Shoot the shit, sit around
Just wanna feel your energy
We can dance, have a drink
You can tell me what you really think
About this jungle we call life

I WANT YOU TO BE MINE
MY ONLY VALENTINE
WHENEVER YOU’RE AROUND I KNOW THAT I HAVE FOUND
MY TRUE LOVE
I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME
YOU STOLE MY HEART AWAY
BUT I DON’T WONT IT BACK, KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF
MY TRUE LOVE

You can’t crash my party
‘Cause this is not a party
But you can crash my daydreams
Whenever you like

Maybe we can spend some time
I would love it if you’d talk to me
Shoot the shit, sit around
Just wanna feel your energy
We can dance, have a drink
You can tell me what you really think
About this jungle we call life

I WANT YOU TO BE MINE
MY ONLY VALENTINE
WHENEVER YOU’RE AROUND I KNOW THAT I HAVE FOUND
MY TRUE LOVE
I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME
YOU STOLE MY HEART AWAY
BUT I DON’T WONT IT BACK, KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF
MY TRUE LOVE
You, you can’t help that
You’re breathless
So helplessly in love

I WANT YOU TO BE MINE
MY ONLY VALENTINE
WHENEVER YOU’RE AROUND I KNOW THAT I HAVE FOUND
MY TRUE LOVE
I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME
YOU STOLE MY HEART AWAY
BUT I DON’T WONT IT BACK, KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF
MY TRUE LOVE

Fallin’ under a spell
In an old-fashioned fairytale

Biography:

Of nearly 15,000 entries, Téa came out on top at the International Songwriting Competition. Drawing inspiration from artists like Sia, Amy Winehouse, and Remy Shand, Téa's own brand of "city soul" cleaned up at the prestigious competition, winning the R&B/Hip-Hop category. She returned the following year with an equally strong second place finish, cementing her unmistakable ability to craft a song that sticks.

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Téa started playing the piano at 7 years old. After moving with her family to Vancouver, Canada at 14, Téa went on to receive the A.R.C.T. Diploma in Piano Performance at 18, and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of British Columbia at 22, before becoming the award-winning songwriter she is today.

Téa and her band have played over 400 shows, including appearances at Canadian Music Week (2012), The Vancouver International Jazz Festival and New Music West. The songstress was selected as one of the top 20 finalists (out of 450+ applicants) in the Peak Performance Project's debut year, and was also the first artist to be featured on Virgin Radio’s ‘Best of BC’ new artist series. Her song “Fire & Flame” was awarded one of the top prizes at Music BC’s Songbird West Songwriting Contest, earning Téa radio play on stations around the world.

Téa has released two EP’s (Method to the Madness and Say Something) and has penned songs with many talented writers including Jeff Dawson, Chin Injeti, Troy Samson, Dane Deviller, Don McLeod, and others.
