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. © 2009 Michelle Lewis Music

Lonely Life 03:12
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. © 2009 Michelle Lewis Music

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

about

Michelle Lewis Boston, Massachusetts

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
