about

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3

Track Name: In Code
In Code

Maybe my eyes don’t lie. Is that why you look at me like it’s my confession?
All sin and sacrifice, that’s just the way I taste when you feed the tension.
Oh, hear me out.
Oh, hear me out.

I lie when I say 'I’m fine. Yeah, the pain makes sense. I'll get over it.'
I lie and the consequence is you’ll never know what you’ll never get
by tearing me all down.

This only feels right now but I know it’s not the same, just the same intention.
I miss you for your mind and body goes with it, but for the apprehension.
Oh, hear me out.
Oh, hear me out.

I lie when I say 'I’m fine. Yeah, the pain makes sense. I'll get over it.'
I lie and the consequence is you’ll never know what you’ll never get
by tearing me all down for you.

Somebody had to go and be honest. Be honest.
Somebody had to go and sing nothing but the truth in code.
Oh, hear me out.
Oh, hear me out.

I lie when I say 'I’m fine. Yeah, the pain makes sense. I'll get over it.'
I lie and the consequence is you’ll never know what you’ll never get
by tearing me all down for you, for you, for you.
Track Name: Too Deep
Here goes nothing
Here goes everything in my simple mind
Yeah, there used to be a time I’d trade it all for what you think

I'd hope for lies
I understand you’d be surprised
You were bound to be
No, you never were expecting anything at all from me

You're too deep, is that why you think you know me?
Is that why you read my simple mind and still don’t find
whatever you think you need

Fight or flight if ever we two should meet and someday might
That’s what really bothered me:
you never really understanding

If I obsess, you win for relentlessness
We come undone by process of your denigration
How the hell were we supposed to be?

You're too deep, is that why you think you know me?
Is that why you read my simple mind and still don’t find
whatever you think you need

All the words you can have for nothing
For what it’s worth, you have everything
I might have what we had in common
But, you know me...

As we live a life of ease, every one of us has all we need

You're too deep, is that why you think you know me?
Is that why you read my simple mind and still don’t find
whatever you think you need
Track Name: Laura Marie & Reza Kaleel - This Time
This Time

I used to think that it was only me
the way my world collides
with every truth I seek
and how I couldn’t keep myself
from falling deep into
the waiting void that I have left in me

You used to think that it was only you
the way my world revolved
around the things you do
and how I couldn’t keep myself
from falling through into
the waiting void and how
that still seems true

If I was made to fly and you were gone
could I, without the strings you tie,
make it and make it alone
this time

I’ve never come this far

I used to keep a little piece of mind
I kept it tucked behind my ear
a little light that I could ride away
upon in troubled times
it’s just another part of me
that I can’t find

I’ve never come this far
but I know I want to stay here
for the moment I can see
why you had to let me feel this way
I wouldn’t cry if I didn’t know
that I could have been here yesterday
but I wouldn’t have tried
without you on my side,
if you hadn’t let me go
and you didn’t want to know
if I was...

made to fly and you were gone
could I, without the strings you tie,
make it and make it alone
this time
Track Name: Ever Since
Ever since and always waiting
lost the chance to do what we never did
We'll curse ourselves for hesitating
but, nevermore let fear forbid

Because, maybe we were
closer than we think
Still, no one touched
and the suspense was killing me

It was only love, only lust,
only innocence
It was only real, only right,
only wondering if
ever since

Maybe we were hoping things
we couldn’t let our mouths admit
Waiting on momentum to get
caught up in the thrill of it

But, funny how that
moment never came
To do what everybody said
would happen anyway

It was only love, only lust,
only innocence
It was only real, only right,
only wondering if
ever since

I heard your back
I’m hoping that we could
go back and take our time
and finally find out why

It was only love, only lust,
only innocence
It was only real, only right,
only wondering if
ever since
Track Name: Wait
I’m this way because I’m cold,
cold enough to know knowing does no good.
I’m this way because I’m wrong,
wrong to let it end, end the way it should.
If you’re laying down your arms, lie down and be done
because lying is what we’ll do.

Just to wait for you takes all my strength and I won’t.
Because, nobody breaks the way I do
and I don’t think I want me to

I’m this way when I wake up,
up before the dawn. It’s dawning on me now.
I’m this way because you’re not.
Not because I care. Caring is not allowed
If you’re saying you can’t take the weight of this
then, maybe, wait until I’m gone

It’s your fault I can’t stay… stay asleep inside…
Whose side did you take…taking all my time…
it’s time to be awake making up my mind

Just to wait for you takes all my strength and I won’t
Because, nobody breaks the way I do
I'm this way and you won't budge
I'll be here, you'll be fine
Track Name: Surface
Somebody has to surface - come from under your skin
Somebody has to bear down for his life to begin
May he strengthen on his way.
Let him know, if he could stay, I hope to meet him
I hope to see that day

Somebody has to sleep here in the fold of our arms
Somebody has to be here so we know who we are
May he come within our grasp, take our hands and hold them fast
I hope to meet him. I hope to hear his laugh.

Here we are in tiny hands
They carry our tiny beating hearts

Somebody has to grow up, be a brilliant young man
Somebody has to trust love, be as strong as we can
When the will of love is done may that sorrow never come
I want to meet you. I want to meet you, son

Here we are in tiny hands
They carry our tiny beating hearts
Track Name: Hanging Around
I’m hanging around
I’m holding a candle ‘til I burn it out of my mind
Legions can’t tear me away from inching inside of you,
waiting until it’s enough to say:
I don’t expect to hold you just yet
But, I know your fears and I’m hopeful and I’m here

I don’t need to go
I give you my word you’ll be the first and the last to know.
I don’t expect to hold you just yet
But, I will remain until chance has come around again

Open your door. I’m tired of waiting outside of your world,
quietly biding my time ‘til you’re full of hope again.
I go where my love is found that’s why I’m hanging around

…outside of your door
and I’ve got my reasons
for wanting this love that I’m waiting for
I don’t expect to leave here alone anymore

Open your door. I’m tired of waiting outside of your world,
quietly biding my time ‘til you’re full of hope again.
I go where my love is found. That’s why I’m hanging around
Track Name: On & On
The moment you took the stage I was yours
Every syllable on your tongue touched my nerves
Between what you sang and what I heard you threw me

I know every thought inside your head
You dream like me but play the dream instead
I’m waking up and going back to bed without it
On & on, the way you play me
On & on, I’m blown away

I could have a million words inside my mouth
But I’m tongue tied paralyzed in doubt
Maybe your lips on mine could ease them out
On & on, on & on, I’m blown away

I’m soaking in the memory
Drinking up words that pulse and ring
You’re shaking up every single part of me
On & on, the way you play me
On & on, I’m blown away
Hey, I want you alone
there’s nobody else, nobody else
Hey, I want you alone
there’s nobody else, nobody else

I could have a million words inside my mouth
But I’m tongue tied paralyzed in doubt
Maybe your lips on mine could ease them out
On & on, on & on, I’m blown away
Track Name: Kid
‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what we said?
Be happy and stupid on lies that you’re fed.
So quit looking at me like I meant what I said.
No, I don’t want to do something I could regret.
How noble and true, how absurd could I get?
If I wanted to leave, why haven’t I left?
Some things are good and some true.
Speak of the devil, it’s you.

‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what they say when you’re living a lie
‘Don’t kid yourself’ like there’s no greater good than the good in goodbye

How you’re under my skin is over my head.
I left you at least twenty feet from the bed.
If I don’t want to leave, could you leave me instead?
There’s no use in taking it slow
For something you already know.

I’m left alone with you-the only living proof that you’re here
when there’s nobody left but the truth

‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what they say when you’re living a lie
‘Don’t kid yourself’ and they’ll leave you alone with the good in goodbye
‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what they say when you’re living a lie
‘Don’t kid yourself’ and they’ll leave you to mourn all the good in goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: Good Enough
As soon as we’ve all been figured out
and all the good honesty allows is here
is waiting…is here
Even as stars fall into place…
what are the odds for we have made mistakes.
You know how it happens.

Tell the world we’re fine with all our imperfections
Good enough for us

Put complications out of mind
Pull darkest memories from mine
They’re done. We don’t need reminding.

Tell the world we’re fine with all our imperfections
Good enough for us

I may be unworthy.
Maybe I don’t deserve this sign.
What have I done to make this right?

Tell me we’ve made it.
Both of us strengthened by time well spent.
Are we then content to wonder what it’s like
to lose our imperfections?
Good enough for us.
