    "Beauty In the Breakdown" is a collection of stories, impeccably set to song, chronicling the singer-songwriter's journey of the many human layers of a relationship from passion, love and the broken end.

    Once upon a time, Jean met "L" on a hot, steamy night. Their connection was only slightly more instant than the sex, and the romance was a whirlwind of passion, ghosts and broken mirrors.

    Four years, many tears and masquerades of deceit later, Jean rises out of her own heartbreak to tell her honest story of a love that should never have been, a person that never was, and how it brought her to her own defining moment of "Beauty in the Breakdown".

    ::

    THE MUSIC

    With a thunderous voice, poetically explosive lyrics and a sizzling, virtuoso band, "Beauty in the Breakdown" is set on fire with an incendiary blend of modern, danceable Pop-Funk with rocked-out Urban flare.

    Genre-defiant influences of Prince & the Revolution's "Purple Rain", with heartfelt dysfunction of Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors", sealed with the cool-factor of Justin Timbelake's "FutureSexLoveSound" Jean Morisson has sophistically married different styles that melt together, brilliantly.

    Special guests include Nile Rodgers (Madonna, David Bowie, Duran Duran), Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Raymond Angry (The Roots, Joss Stone, D'Angelo) and more.

Track Name: Open Up the Box
Do you see what I see
I walked into a crowded room
Felt my lust, your eyes, the boom
I'm wondering what I would say
If I could just get next to you
The "Glamoured" spell I'd put you through

Tell me that you dare me
To do the things that scare me
When I'm next to you
Flow and take it slowly
There's not need to hurry
I'm yours all night

Baby, Open Up the Box
Don't stop, don't leave a drop
Open Up the Box
Don't stop, don't leave a drop
(Can you take me... there)

Please don't stop the music
Baby don't stop the rock
Sexy sexy lady
Sexy Sexy

I know you see what I see
Making your groove so close, so smooth
Baby, I love the way you move
You're teasing me, my body's tight
Go on and do that thing so right
Asking me, "Dance with me all night?"

Tell me that you dare me
To do the things that scare me
When I'm next to you, baby
Flow and take it slowly
There's not need to hurry
I'm yours all night

Baby, Open Up the Box
Don't stop, don't leave a drop
Open Up the Box
Don't stop, don't leave a drop
(Can you take me... there)

Please don't stop the music
Baby don't stop the rock
Sexy Sexy lady
Damn she's so hot
Please don't stop the music
Baby don't stop the rock
Sweaty, Sexy, Crazy
Sexy Sexy

Tell me that you dare me
To do the things that scare me
When I'm next to you, baby
Flow and take it slowly
There's not need to hurry
I'm yours all night
Track Name: Naughty feat. Nile Rodgers
Can you feel it, baby?
I can...

Darlin', I was wondering
If I can get a piece of you
The piece you wanna give me, too

What if I ask nicely, baby?
If you knew that I would do it,
Would you do it?

Let me ride inside your favorite car
You can drive and I will take you far

Everybody looks at you
They want their chance
But only you and I can do
This dirty dance
If we slip through the night, when it's right
I can be your all
I can be so..

Naughty, nasty, instigator, trouble-maker, dominator
Gonna get into it,
Get into it
Gonna groove it through it

Baby, are you satisfied?
I'll take you up into a place so high
That you and I will touch the sky
My lips drip my kisses, baby
Your fingers slide electric
(I can handle it)

Let's just slide inside this secret hall
Your body's moving, you have me on the wall

Everybody looks at you
They want their chance
But only you and I can do
This dirty dance
If we slip through the night, when it's right
I can be your all
I can be so..

Naughty, nasty, instigator, trouble-maker, dominator
Gonna get into it,
Get into it
Gonna groove it through it
Track Name: Gigolo feat. Nile Rodgers & Vernon Reid
Why are you looking
Hooking me to look around your way?
You know I'm taken
But you have so much you want to say

It's like The Raven
Knock-knock-knocking right outside my door
Cause if I touch you
I am lost forever, evermore

[STOP] Please don't do it
I'm on fire baby wanting you
[STOP] Please don't do it
Once it's done I'll be so into you
I know it's wrong
But I've waited oh so long

Here you come
You're coming over here, so close again
Pressed against me
Like a devil burning in my skin
Not and angel
Won't pretend I'm working out my sin
Look what you've done
It's gonna hurt so good, so deep within

[STOP] Please don't do it
I'm on fire baby wanting you
[STOP] Please don't do it
Once it's done I'll be so into you
I know it's wrong
But I've waited oh so long

I'm just a Gigolo
I know it's so
And I don't want to let go
I'm just a Gigolo
I know it's so
I don't know how to say no

This corner's perfect
And you know just what you want to do
I feel you touch me, you're so dirty
I'm so into you
Oh baby please don't
I can't take your sex against the door
My mind is saying no
But I just want you on the floor

[STOP] Please don't do it
I'm on fire baby wanting you
[STOP] Please don't do it
Once it's done I'll be so into you
I know it's wrong
But I've waited oh so long

I'm just a Gigolo
I know it's so
And I don't want to let go
I'm just a Gigolo
I know it's so
I don't know how to say no

Got your eye on the prize [and that's the game]
With your brand new idea [to all you Mrs. Fame]
You've got your target on me [in the line of sight]
That's why you call me in the middle of the night

I'm just a Gigolo, I'm just a Gigolo - oh, oh
I'm just a Gigolo, I'm just a Gigolo - oh, oh, oh

I'm just a Gigolo
I know it's so
And I don't want to let go
I'm just a Gigolo
I know it's so
I don't know how to say no
Track Name: All For You (In 1220)
How do I tell you, baby?
Where do I begin?
With one look, I'm devastated
With one kiss you do me in

Never, ever felt such pleasure
Never drowned in so much rain
With you melted on my fingers
Your sound is driving me insane

You whisper your sex is on fire
Blindfolds in the dark
Come and get me

Give me all your lovin'
Up against the door
'Til the cops come knocking, baby
Don't it make you want me more?

Give me all your lovin'
'Til the walls crash the floor
Say my name again, now baby
Don't it make you want me more?

You know I'm not a jealous lover
But with you, it comes with ease
Don't want nobody else to touch you
You're mine, you just belong to me

There will never be another
Make you come the way I do
So be good tell me, baby
My d*ck's the only one for you

Your body is my new obsession
Bound in silk & ties
There on your knees

Give me all your lovin'
Up against the door
'Til the cops come knocking baby
Don't it make you want me more?

Give me all your lovin'
'Til the walls crash the floor
Say my name again, now baby
Don't it make you want me more?

Cuando no estas aqui
No hay desahogo sin ti
En un beso sabrás todo lo que he callado
Te amo, corazón

In 1220, you remember?
Kidney Thieves played soft and tender
I was lost in you
And you, lost in me

Give me all your lovin'
Up against the door
'Til the cops come knocking baby
Don't it make you want me more?

Give me all your lovin'
'Til the walls crash the floor
Say my name again, now baby
Don't it make you want me more?

In 1220, you remember?
Making love so sweet and tender
It was all for you, all for you
It was all for you, baby

In 1220, you remember?
You were mine and I surrendered
It was all for you, all for you
And you were all for me...
Track Name: The Fight
You don't hear a word I say
Are you gonna lie to me?
Create another mystery?
I cannot hear a word you say
You're like someone I never knew
I would've never lied to you

Can you look at me again?
Has it become so much that you are not my friend?
Can you see the you in me?
Or is it so far that it could never ever be...
Never be?

'Cuz every time you come around
My world is spinning upside down
I cannot sleep at night and think
and sleep at night tonight
and sleep at night and dream
What else can I do?
It's because of you

Please don't say the words you say
You twist my stomach inside out
Fill my head with endless doubt
Then you look the other way
It's like my heart's an empty space
Filled without amazing grace

Can't you look at me again?
Is your heart so lost that it will never mend?
When you say these words you do
Like there's a ghost inside this room
I'm losing... losing u...
Losing you...

'Cuz every time you come around
My world is spinning upside down
I cannot sleep at night and think
and sleep at night tonight
and sleep at night and dream
What else can I do?

Baby, baby, baby please
I've gotten down on my knees
Begging and pleading so hard that I'm bleeding inside

'Cuz every time you come around
My world is spinning, spinning upside down
I can't sleep at night and think
and sleep at night tonight
and sleep at night and dream
What else can I do?

Because of you...

It's because of you...
Track Name: Better Than You feat. Vernon Reid
Hey! You!
So What!?

Ooh, you're walking away now, baby
Walking away like you do
D-D-Dangerous game that you're playing, honey
Kn-Kn-Knowing I can walk away too

Gentle Jezebel, so from hell
Wishing on a wishing well
Whatcha think I'm gonna do?
Fo-fo-fo-fo-follow you?

Do you think you're so much more
Than I've ever had before?
Let me break the news, it's true
I can do better than you

Hey! You!
What are you thinkin'?
Textin' for a hookup while you're drivin' and drinkin'
So What?!
It doesn't matter
"Glamoured" is no longer true
I can do better than...

You, you're lying your way out baby
Lying the way that you do
D-D-Dangerous game that you're playing, honey
Kn-Kn-Knowing I can lie to you, too

Gentle Jezebel, so from hell
Wicked witch, you cast a spell
Whatcha think I'm gonna do?
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fall for you?

Do you think you're so much more
Cause we laid down twice before?
Let me break the news, it's true
I can do better than you

Hey! You!
What are you thinkin'?
Textin' for a hookup while you're drivin' and drinkin'
So What?!
It doesn't matter
"Glamoured" is no longer true
I can do better than you

Now you know I miss you baby
Yes, I miss you more than ever
Now, you know that's just not really true
I would rather die than be with you
So I took back my key
And I locked you out
FOREVER

Hey! You!
What are you thinkin'?
Textin' for a hookup while you're drivin' and drinkin'
So What?!
It doesn't matter
"Glamoured" is no longer true
I can do better than... you
Track Name: 3:25AM
3:25am, I wipe my sweat away
Awake to try to find myself, again
Can't eat, can't sleep, can't dream
This bitterness inside of me has got a hold on three
I drowning in the sea

Do you know what it's like to love you?
Had to break my heart and watch you walk away
Do you know what it's like to watch you live a lie?
When I know there's nothing I can do to make you see the light

You're walking dangerously close to the edge
I cry all night don't know where you've been
And so I want to choose my words closely then
Cause something ain't right
Please tell me why

I keep on falling
I keep on coming back to you
Is this forever?
Can we forget what we've been through?

'Cuz I keep on falling
I keep on coming back to you
Is this forever?
I'll never forget what you put me through
Falling for you

3:25, I wipe my sweat away
Awake cause I can't hide this pain, again
Can't eat, can't sleep, can't be
I'm falling deeper, can't you see you've got a hold on me?
Your love is killing me

Do you know what it's like to love you?
I'm bleeding love inside
I'm dying every day
Do you know what it's like to want you in my life?
When I know there's nothing I can do to make you see the light

You're walking dangerously close to the edge
I cry all night, don't know where you've been
And so I want to choose my words closely then
Cause something ain't right... please tell me why...

Tell me are you happy now?
That you fooled the world somehow to think
Everything that you had done to me
Was everything that I had done to you
You painted me like I'm a fool
Like a Rockstar just being so damn cool
Only sent you flowers to apologize
There's so many lies
Are you fucking kidding me?

Treated you like you were queen of the scene
Behind my back, sneak attack, you're so damn mean
Still I wanted to give you
The things that I told you
Now I forgive you

Now I forgive you
Please tell me
Tell me why

I keep on falling
I keep on coming back to you
Is this forever?
Can we forget what we've been through?

'Cuz I keep on falling
I keep on coming back to you
Is this forever?
I'll never forget what you put me through

Falling for you...
Falling for you...
