about

Michelle Lewis Boston, Massachusetts

==> New CD "The Parts Of Us That Still Remain" 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: Broken
Looks like I might
be losing my mind once again
Too hard to fight
this restlessness aching inside
And you hold on tight
to promises made in the past
to you, my love

Well I didn’t know then
that I was broken
I never would have
wrestled your heart to the ground
Never again
will my heart
make a sound

My chest feels weak
caving in making a hole
So dark, so deep
that I can’t climb out of and you,
You wait patiently
for something I may never give
to you, my love

Well I didn’t know then
that I was broken
I never would have
wrestled your heart to the ground
Never again
will my heart
make a

Sounds like
this is goodbye

Well I didn’t know then
that I was broken
I never would have
wrestled your heart to the ground
Never again
will my heart
make a sound.

Track Name: Lonely Life
I’ve been trying to get right out of here
I’ve been trying just to get right out of here
Yeah I’ve been dying to get right out of here
But it’s a long, lonely life

A lonely life, a lonely life
A lonely life, a lonely life

I’ve been thinking ‘bout what has passed me by
And I’ve been drinking just to help me pass the time
Yeah I’ve been thinking ‘bout how to say goodbye
But it’s a long, lonely life

A lonely life, a lonely life
A lonely life, a lonely life
A lonely life, a lonely life
It’s a long, lonely life

Well I’ve been praying most every single night
And I’ve been working so hard to win this fight
Yeah I’ve been sleeping just to get me through the night
But it’s a long, lonely life
Yeah it’s a long, lonely life
It’s a long, lonely life.

Track Name: Breakfast At Tiffany's
An Irish pub in January
shows half a dozen empty bottles at my seat
And by some princely act you come and save me from some drunken lad
and sit down next to me
And you talk of California
and I say I just returned from there last week
And you ask if you can call and fully knowing I could lose it all
my lips can hardly move to speak

Cause my mind’s tied to another
One that abides a million miles from here
or so it seems
But my body stands here
and sees those eyes of yours are calling dear
and my heart hides somewhere in between

Well you joke of your advances
and I give a hypocrite’s ambiguous reply
And though try as I might you know those butterflies are hard to fight
when they keep on fluttering inside
And you speak in perfect metaphor
and talk of spirits in the room surrounding me
And you say I’ve got ghosts but the one that scares you most
has got himself wrapped ‘round finger number three

Cause my mind’s tied to another
One that abides a million miles from here
or so it seems
But my body sits here
and sees those lips of yours are drawing near
and my heart dies somewhere in between

And you say you want me to be
something you can feel good about
And I said well, hey honey
I’d kinda like to feel that way about myself

And I will wake up in the morning
and just like Audrey I’ll be swimming in the reds
And I will slip out in time before the sunlight hits your eyes
and I’ll have breakfast at Tiffany’s instead

Cause my mind’s tied to another
One that abides a million miles from here
or so it would seem
But my body lies here
inside your arms that hold me near
and my heart dies somewhere in between
