released November 15, 2011

"Everything Will Be Alright" is the second full length release for indie pop star Yael Meyer. Released in Nov 2011 under her own KLI RECORDS, the album debuted at the top of the charts on various national radio stations (USA) ranking in the top 200 CMJ charts during its first week.

SPIN Magazine praises the songs on Everything Will Be Alright, her latest album, as embodying "artful simplicity offering refuge from modern anxiety", while The Wall Street Journal raves "...2011 has been an exceptional year in rock and pop for women and the projects they helm, with superior albums by Adele, Mary J. Blige, Anna Calvi, Feist, P.J. Harvey...Add Yael Meyer and her new 'Everything Will Be Alright' to that list."

5 out of the 11 tracks in the record have been licensed to TV and Film projects, with "Tea For Two", "Shed Their Fear", "Used To Be" and "I Wonder How" respectively appearing in the American series Life Unexpected, Private Practice and MTV's Awkward.

A full length REMIX album by various artists will be released by the label in February 2012. It will feature dubstep, hip-hop and dance remixes of "FIRE", the first single from "Everything Will Be Alright", by up and coming and established DJs from around the globe, including mixes by Rasadon (former member of Arrested Development) and South-American folk-electronic duo Lulacruza (Vincent Moon).

Track Name: Fire
Fire is supposed to take you higher
Fire can burn your soul
but if you don't listen to the choir
the choir will turn to stone

Fire is supposed to take you higher
Fire can burn your soul
but if you don't listen to the choir
the choir will turn to stone

dododododododo....

Fire and rain, to drown the growing pain
Anger and tears, to drown the burning fear

Fire is supposed to take you higher
Fire can burn your soul
but if you don't listen to the choir
the choir will turn to stone
Track Name: Backbone
Whenever I feel confused
Pep talks are of no use
I know your love surrounds me

Whenever I’m feeling lost
And the price is not worth the cost
I know your love surrounds me

And I’m not alone, I’m not alone
You are my backbone, you are my home
And I shall not wander away from thunder
You are my rescue when I go under

Whenever I’m feeling scared
To go places I never dared to go
I know your love surrounds me

Whenever I’m feeling restless
And not always act my bestest
I know your love surrounds me

And I’m not alone, I’m not alone
You are my backbone, you are my home
And I shall not wander away from thunder
You are my rescue when I go under

And you, you, and you, you
And you, you
You’re my shelter from the storm
The fire that keeps me warm

And I’m not alone, I’m not alone
You are my backbone, you are my home
And I shall not wander away from thunder
You are my rescue when I go under
Track Name: Used To Be
Used To Be

Things are not the same way that they used to be
We’re busy running around that is you and I baby
I wanna go stroll underneath the night sky
Watch the clouds as they swing by
Stay up late and talk about life
Like we used to do in another time

Things are not the same now that we’ve grown into our own
We built a home from nothing, built a life stone by stone
And I wanna take time to make time, to sit under the sunshine
And feel your heart against mine, feel your heart against mine

Ooooooooooooo

I think about the days sometimes when I first saw your face
And thought you were the cutest one with the mysterious gaze
But never thought that day would be the first day of the rest of my life
With you

Things are not the same way that they used to be
But we will be fine babe
You and me
Track Name: Heartbeat
Days are getting longer life is speeding up
Sometimes it goes too fast
Sometimes it goes too fast

And I don’t’ wanna waste a second
Not a moment, just a moment
Going on the wrong lane
Oh that would be a pain

I’ll be traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
be traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
Traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
Ooooo, oooooo, oooooo

Looking at the yard where we used to roll around
All covered in soil, getting our clothing all spoiled
And we’d gather all the socks from around the house
So we could start a war, and get to play some more

Build a crooked castle out of blankets and broken old chairs
Setting up the mattress to slide down the living room stairs
Tandem riding our little yellow bike on a two way street
Traveling at the speed of our own heartbeats
Ooooooooo

Days are getting longer life is speeding up
Sometimes it goes too fast
Sometimes it goes too fast

Traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
Traveling at the speed of my own heartbeat
Ooooo, oooooo, oooooo
Track Name: I Wonder How
Surely I cannot imagine, what you must think of me now
Buried here beneath the rubble, all this unexpected trouble how
I wonder how…will we find it in our hearts
To forgive the misregards and doubts?

It’s not the change that we expected
Nor something we protected for

Nobody prepared the plate
oh how could we have known what to wait for

Now we find ourselves at loss, in the midst of this great toss
and how, I wonder how?
If I don’t even know within me
What it is that is still hindering me
from loving you like I do.

Buried here beneath the rubble, all this unexpected trouble how
I wonder how…will we find it in our hearts
To forgive the misregards and doubts?
Track Name: Shed Their Fear
As I walk above the pavement, I can feel you walking with me carrying me
And I hear above the silence all these voices screaming loudly at my ear

Shed their fear
Shed their fear on me

Living in a world of lies is not amongst the holy sites I site from here
Grant me strength to dissipate the dark that haunts and pierces deeply like a spear

Shed their fear
Shed their fear on me

As I walk above the pavement, I can feel you walking with me carrying me
And I hear above the silence all these voices screaming loudly at my ear
Track Name: Tea For Two
Tea for Two

When our days of youth have passed us by
All the kids and grandkids began to fly
Once again it will be you and me
Sitting barefoot beneath the shade of a summer tree

Chorus

And we’ll laugh at our wrinkly toes
our gray hair and my crooked nose
You’ll look at me and I will look to you
and we’ll make tea for two

And in the winter when it’s gray and cold
You’ll tell me stories as the day unfolds
And in the evenings I will sing to you
And we’ll make tea for two

Na na na, na na na na, na na na

When our sheer good looks begin to fade
Wrinkled eyes, fake teeth are here to stay
Everyone around will think we’re old
But to me you’ll always be the one
I love with all of my soul

Chorus

And we’ll take walks along the Persian rug
We’ll cuddle closely really warm and snung
You’ll look at me and I will look to you
And we’ll make tea for two

And in the winter when it’s gray and cold
You’ll tell me stories as the day unfolds
And in the evenings I will sing to you
And we’ll make tea for two
Track Name: Home To Me
So happy to have you here I’m so glad you made it
So happy to hold you near I’m so glad you made it
Could have taken too many moons but it happened soon
And yes you finally made it home to me

Ooooo
Home to me
Oooo
Home to me

So happy to see your face I’m so glad you made it
So happy to see you smile I’m so glad you made it
Could have taken far too long I wished it all along
That you would make it home to me

Ooooo
Home to me
Oooo
Home to me

Counting down the days I was
Wishing time would pass
Counting down the days I was
So glad it happened fast

Could have taken boats and planes
Taken cars and trains
But you finally made it

Could have taken far too long I wished it all along
That you would make it home to me

Oooooo
Home to me
Oooo
Home to me
Oooo
Home to me
Oooo
Home to me
Home to me
Home to me
Track Name: Everything Will Be Alright
Wake up happy cause you’re lying by my side
And I know that everything, everything will be alright
And I know that everything, everything will be alright
And I know that everything, everything will be alright

Little things show me how you feel
All the little things you do let me know your love is real
All the little things you do let me know your love is real
All the little things you do let me know your love is real

And I can’t hide a love this true
Love so strong and binding, love that feels like new
Everyday with you

I wake up happy cause you’re lying by my side
And I know that everything, everything will be alright
And I know that everything, everything will be alright
And I know that everything, everything will be alright
And I know that everything, everything will be alright
Track Name: The Night
The mood of the night surrounds me
And I no longer fear the night
At last I am sleeping soundly
Guided by the light of your might, of your might

The moon in the sky so brightly
Shines through my window pane
How peaceful and gentle is your sweet embrace

And all of the fears that I hold on to so dearly
Slowly begin to fade
Because I know that the sound of your voice is around
Guiding my way

Far from the city noises
I dive into my own dream land
Where sweetly my heart rejoices
In the peaceful and gentle waters of your love
Of your love, of your love, of your love
Track Name: Will They Forget
Sometimes it overcomes me
And I just feel so clumsy
Drowning in the waves
And the currents overriding me

And the feeling is so daunting
It makes me feel so lonely
I try to keep my cool
But loose my power like a fool

And the color of the water as it flows
And the lovely smell of spring as winter goes
And these tiny specs of light in the dark night above my head
And this pile of dusty leaves as my warm bed
Will they forget?
Will they forget?
Will they forget?
Will they forget?

ooooooooo

Come on I hear them calling
The sand is quickly falling
The ticking of the clock
Is about to stop

And in my heart a whisper
Tells me not to resist her
Tells me to fall in love
To lose myself in love

And the color of the water as it flows
And the lovely smell of spring as winter goes
And these tiny specs of light in the dark night above my head
And this pile of dusty leaves as my warm bed
Will they forget?
Will they forget?
Will they forget?
Will they forget?

ooooooooo
