1. Tonic is an alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1993 and has earned two Grammy nominations to date, best known for their international top 40 hit "If You Could Only See". Originally founded by musicians Emerson Hart and Jeff Russo, later members have included Dan Lavery, Kevin Shepard, and Dan Rothchild. Signed to a recording contract in 1995, they released their debut album, titled 'Lemon Parade', in 1996.
The album was a commercial smash, getting platinum certified by the RIAA. The aforementioned single "If You Could Only See" reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and picked up major airplay internationally as well, especially in Canada. The group also had success with other singles "Open Up Your Eyes" and "Casual Affair", both of them top 10 hits on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart.
Tonic spent much of the next two years touring, adding to its reputation as a relentlessly gigging band. In addition to extensive touring Tonic produced other work, including songs for feature film soundtracks such as Scream 2 and The X-Files. After self-producing their 1999 album Sugar, they earned two Grammy nominations for their 2002 album Head on Straight. The band then went on hiatus beginning in 2004 while its members pursued solo work and other musical endeavors.
Tonic became active again in late 2008, embarking on a tour and releasing a greatest hits compilation. These efforts set the stage for their self-titled fourth studio album, which was released in 2010. Tonic continues to actively tour.

- LyricsIf you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do
If you could only see how blue
- LyricsLove is tragic, love is bold
You will always do what you are told
Love is hard, love is strong
You will never say that you were wrong
I don't know when I got bitter
- LyricsChoosing stones
Big enough to drag me down
Where I am
People's voices make hollow sounds
Just be quiet
- LyricsThere's an empty place inside that is hurting me
Place that keeps my heart out on its own
Disconnected function of my wretchedness
Keeps me so hard pressed
It's a place where words are spoken you will never hear
- LyricsI never knew my Father, I never knew his pain
Or that an empty home life would break him down again
So when I feel like running I have to look inside
I want to find the answers, I want to break my line
Fear falls down like rain
