KATIE

Performed live at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, New York – 2009.
Written by Maurizio Russomanno

Katie packed her things in boxes and grocery bags
What ever she could find
She’s gonna move back to her parents house
One step back – two steps on the line

She dreams of white picket fences
And a dog for her son – Ian
But just like every dream you gotta bleed your weight in salt and give until there is nothing or no one left

Katie – she is home again
Just like every moment, every day, every breath it’s here and then it’s gone
Oh it’s long long gone

Always looking over your shoulder
Waiting for the next demon to land
And when the devil is your only best friend
When you need a helping hand

And isn’t everything not exactly what you expected
And aint that strangely beautiful
They say with every blessing comes a curse
With every curse a need to understand

Katie – is home again
Just like every moment, every day, every breath it’s here and then it’s gone
Oh it’s long long gone

Hanging by a thread
But isn’t that enough to make it
Hanging by a thread
But isn’t that enough to fake it

You’re down down down – but you get up – get up – get up
You’re down down down – but you get up – get up – get up
You’re down down down – but you get up – get up – get up
You’re down down down – but you get up – get up – get up

Katie – she’s home again
Just like every moment, every day, every breath it’s here and then it’s gone
Oh it’s long long gone

Katie – she’s home again
Just like every moment, every day, every breath it’s here and then it’s gone
Oh it’s long long gone

Is My Heart What It Will Always Be?
May 2020
Written by Maurizio Russomanno

Here is one of the first run throughs. I like the energy and overall approach on this performance – I hope you do too 🙂

Lyrics:
Am I the sum of all that I’ve done?
Is what I am now the only truth?
All of the goodness can it be undone?
When your skeletons come to roost?

Is my heart what it will always be –
just a muscle pumping blood – so I can breathe?
Have our gods become mortal -mortar and stone – replaced by flesh and bone?

I want to be better I want to feel whole
There’s something insatiable that won’t let me be
Is it evolution to leave what you owe?
The sins of mother and father to be carried until we are free

Is my heart what it will always be –
just a muscle pumping blood – so I can breathe?
Have our gods become mortal -mortar and stone – replaced by flesh and bone?

I want to touch it – hold it close in my hands
So I can truly understand
I want to eat from the tree
If I am blind – how can I see?

Is my heart what it will always be –
just a muscle pumping blood – so I can breathe?
Have our gods become mortal -mortar and stone – replaced by flesh and bone?
