about

A song for March. My first blues song ever. The prompt we were given in our songwriting group was "perfect question" and I focused on obsession because it was a subject that kept popping up in conversation at the time.

This is really fun to do live. Looking forward to performing it at some upcoming shows when I'll have either Damian Rodriguez (on loan from Bekah Kelso and the Fellas) or Bob Charles on guitar. Check the calendar at lauramariemusic.com for details!

Also, if you know any blues artists looking for material ;)

The Answer

I’m a sign that’s waiting on your kind attention
Got me standing by 'till you break the tension
Not the simple truth, I’m a full confession
I’m your answer ready for the perfect question
So, give me a moment, I've got a lot to say

Got me going breathless and I won’t deny it
Feeling bold and reckless, can not keep it quite
Gonna take to screaming just to break the silence
The way my heart is beating, it’s an act of violence
Got a loaded question? Go on and fire away

What’s your answer if my answer is
What’s your answer if my answer is
What’s your answer if my answer is yes
Just gonna lift me up, leave me hanging in suspense
Just gonna lift me up, leave me hanging

You’re a sick obsession for a sole ambition
Some infatuation like a new religion
With your empty promise and your deep conviction
Quoting chapter, verse whether fact or fiction
You’ll answer for it, come down to judgment day

What’s your answer if my answer is
What’s your answer if my answer is
What’s your answer if my answer is yes
Just gonna lift me up, leave me hanging in suspense
Just gonna lift me up, leave me hanging

What’s your answer
What’s your answer
What’s your answer if my answer is yes
Just gonna lift me up, leave me hanging in suspense
Just gonna lift me up, leave me hanging

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
