about

Michelle Lewis Boston, Massachusetts

==> New single "Push On" available now!

Michelle writes intensely visual songs, rich with melodic texture and emotional depth, and she performs with an unmistakable swagger. Too refined to call folk and too personal to call pop, her music surprises listeners who think they know what to expect from a singer/songwriter, and those who never expected to like one. ... more

Track Name: That's What They Say
I've lost all control
I've lost all creation
Forgot what I know
lost all sensation
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be okay
That's what they say
That's what they say

I don't want myself
can't find my vision
Can't stand this show
don't want this prison
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be okay
That's what they say
That's what they say

Well it's the last time I fool myself
into thinking it's forever
And it's high time I tell myself
it’s now or it's never
Well it's never going to be
how you dreamed it would be

Can’t turn around
it’s too late for freedom
Where are the ones who count
when you need 'em?
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be ok
That's what they say
That's what they say

Well it's the last time I fool myself
Into thinking it's forever
And it's high time I tell myself
It’s now or it's never
Well it's never going to be
How you dreamed it would be

Can’t turn around
it’s too late for freedom
Where are the ones who count
when you need 'em?
I can't go
and I can't stay
But it'll be ok
That's what they say
That's what they say
It’ll be okay
That's what they say
That's what they say
Track Name: All That's Left
I could smile
pretend that I don’t feel the pain
Or act like things haven’t changed
but they’ve changed
I could lie
say that I did all that I could do
Or that I thought I had more time with you
but I think I knew

I never spoke to you that day
You just left a note with what you couldn’t say
Now your love has gone away
and all that’s left is yesterday

I put off
phone calls to you I had to make
Trips to your house I had to take
now I won’t take

I never spoke to you that day
You just left a note with what you couldn’t say
Now your love has gone away
and all that’s left is yesterday

And I’ll forgive myself someday
that I wasn’t there for you
Things will never feel the same
without you in the room

I wish I spoke to you that day
Said all the things I never got to say
Before you took your love away
and all that’s left is yesterday
All that’s left is yesterday
Track Name: Push On
When you’re scared
when you’re tired
When your breathing is the only sound
When you’re numb
legs are heavy
When your whole body’s breaking down

Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah
Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah

When you’re lost
hands are empty
Reaching out for what’s no longer there
When your head
won’t stop spinning
All you see is darkness everywhere

Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah
Oh you gotta push on, push on, yeah
Track Name: How
I had it all, so I thought
How could I be so wrong?
You came in, I didn’t believe you when
You said “I don’t love you anymore.”

How did I get here? Where do I go?
When is it over? How will I know?
Where is the place that I call home?
How did I get here? Where do I go?

Swear to God, I am smart
How could I be so wrong?
Now it’s not just me, there’s a baby that’ll be
Coming before too long

How did I get here? Where do I go?
When is it over? How will I know?
Where is the place that I call home?
How did I get here? Where do I go?

Go on, go on
I’ve got to go on
Go on, go on
But how do I go on?

How did I get here? Where do I go?
When is it over? How will I know?
Where is the place that I call home?
How did I get here? Where do I go?
How did I get here? Where do I go?
Track Name: In Love Again
My old gal she’s got a list for me a mile long
No matter how I try I always seem to get it wrong
She rolls her eyes at me sometimes when we’re out with our friends
Tell me why am I in love again?

My old man he don’t remember a single word I say
I can’t seem to ever get his help in any way
When he starts tellin’ dad jokes, God, it’s so embarrassing
Tell me why am I in love again?

The things that drive us mad can sometimes keep us up at night
But they don’t seem so bad when we hold each other tight
Anywhere you’re going I want to go there, too
If we did it all again, guess I’d still fall in love with you

Well, my old man don’t buy me diamonds, but I know he cares
‘Cause every now and then he puts a flower in my hair
My old gal’s so beautiful, it should be a sin
And every day we fall in love again

The things that drive us mad can sometimes keep us up at night
But they don’t seem so bad when we hold each other tight
Anywhere you’re going I want to go there, too
If we did it all again, guess I’d still fall in love with you

Well, my old man don’t buy me diamonds, but I know he cares
‘Cause every now and then he puts a flower in my hair
My old gal’s so beautiful, it should be a sin
And every day we fall in love again
Every day we fall in love again
Track Name: Scars
I grew up in Wellesley Hills
on a beat-up old pig farm
There wasn’t much to keep us fed
but even still it had its charms
I lost my first love to the war
not a bullet on the ground
He was just 1000 miles from home
when his plane came crashing down

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars

My second wedding bells did ring
children followed like they do
But cancer took my firstborn girl
then God took her daddy, too
I raised five kids all in the same house
I never made it to Italy
Now they tell me I must move out
‘cause they can’t take care of me

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars

Hit this light switch on your way out
there’s nothing more for me to see
I should be dying any day now
if it were up to me
I wear the same clothes every day now
just sit and stare at the TV
I had them save my best blue dress
for when they bury me

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars
Track Name: You and Me
You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect in the spring
The sun comes out beneath the clouds and blooms everything
We’ll take a walk in Central Park when everything feels new
We’ll weather all the seasons, me and you

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect on a boat
The waves will splash and tumble us but we still stay afloat
And if the sails should ever fail we will still make do
We’ll glide across the ocean, me and you

There were times I wasn’t sure if we would make it through the year
But through all the ups and downs I looked and you were still here
Sometimes this life will take me away from where you are
But all I do is think of you, you’re never really far

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect for a song
It’s got a simple melody, the crowd can sing along
And the chorus seems to write itself, in two-part harmony
We’ll hum that tune forever, you and me

There were times I wasn’t sure if we would make it through the year
But through all the ups and downs I looked and you were still here
Sometimes this life will take me away from where you are
But all I do is think of you, you’re never really far

You and me we’ve got the kind of love that’s perfect for a song
It’s got a simple melody, the crowd can sing along
And of course the chorus writes itself in two-part harmony
We’ll hum that tune forever, you and me
We’ll hum that tune forever, you and me
Track Name: Please Don't Go
Please don’t go
I know your body’s aching and in pain
But I will always love you just the same

Stay with me
This can’t be all the time I get with you
But the doctors say there’s nothing they can do

Please don’t go
Don’t listen to what He’s been telling you
Please just stay
This ain’t the first mistake that God has made

Please tell me
what else can I do to keep you here
I’d gladly give you a few of my years

Please don’t go
Don’t listen to what He’s been telling you
Please just stay
This ain’t the first mistake that God has made

I’ll be here
just in case you want to change your mind
Miracles, they happen all the time
Track Name: Lay On My Pillow
Lay on my pillow, lay on my heart
Ain’t nothing now that can tear us apart
If you tell me your secrets, I’ll tell you mine
Lay on my pillow, you’ll be fine

Stand next to me, hold my hand
Ain’t nothing now I won’t understand
If you tell me your troubles, I’ll tell you mine
Stand next to me, you’ll be fine

Stay with me always, no need to speak
Just touch me softly, that’s all I need
If you give me your life, I’ll give you mine
Stay with me darling, we’ll be fine
Stay with me darling we’ll be fine
