(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)
Three women of different backgrounds answer a questionnaire about body image, and they have a few questions of their own.
"Now You See Me" (contemporary ballad)
A middle-aged divorcée contemplates her life choices and what comes next.
"To Serve You" (Broadway uptempo)
A young servant is in love with the daughter of the family he serves.
