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: Paris
Lately I’ve been thinking
I don’t care if I live or if I die
You say, “Let’s go to Paris, babe
forget about your troubles in the sky.”
Some things you can mend with glue or tie with bits of string
Others you can try your best but it won’t do a thing

Now you know that I love you
You’re the only thing I ever miss
But something in me is breaking, babe
that ain’t no trip to Paris gonna fix

Lately I’ve been wondering
what’s the point of living, anyway?
You bring me twelve pink roses
say they help to melt the blues away
Well something in me now has turned a darker shade than that
And it’s do hard to fade a stain once it’s gone to black

Now you know that I love you
You’re the only thing I ever miss
But something in me is aching, babe
that ain’t no dozen roses gonna fix

Lately I’ve been wishing
for all these hopeless thoughts to leave my mind
You say, “Let’s go to Paris, babe
you can leave your worried head behind.”
Well I have tried to outrun other sorrows in my past
Funny how those demons have a way of coming back

Now you know that I love you
You’re the only thing I ever miss
But something in me is dying, babe
that ain’t no trip to Paris gonna fix
Something in me is dying, babe
that ain’t no trip to Paris gonna fix
Track Name: Something That Simple
"You need more color in your life," he said
before he walked out the door
Well, black and white's been fine most of the time
until you realize it's all grey inside

I need to find
a way to start living and not just survive
But I can't define
something as simple as wrong or right

"You've got to make up your mind," he said
before he hung up the phone
"'Cause if you don't yet, you'll soon have regret
and then it'll be too hard to ever go home."

I need to find
a way to start living and not just survive
But I can't define
something as simple as wrong or right

Right now I feel like I'm losing touch
How can you tell if you what you've got
will ever be enough

"You should move on with your life", he said
as I walked out the door
"You will be fine, it only takes time
for your head to figure out what your heart wants more."

I need to find
a way to start living and not just survive
But I can't define
