(All lyrics by Robert Cary)


"Relax" (bossa nova)

"Aisle 21"  (rock/funk)

A suburban mother of three tries to make healthy shopping choices but gets sucked into the (candy) vortex.

"Happy All The Time"  (pop rock)

A millennial uses her social media and tech savvy to help a middle-aged divorcée with her online dating profile.

"Yo-yo"  (show style)

Two women commiserate and bond over the futility of constant dieting.

"Nothing More" (pop ingenue theater ballad)

"Bachelor Street" (1930s Astaire-style swing)

"To Tell The Truth" (dragon lady waltz)

"Answers" (rock)

Three women of different backgrounds answer a questionnaire about body image, and they have a few questions of their own.
