lyrics

I had forgotten there’s no lunch for free.
Those shiny lures had got their hooks in me.
The car, the house, the debt, the loan, the crutch;
Now I’m just looking for some honesty, I’m not asking much.

Are you living someone else’s dream?
Do you wakeup in that cold sweat scream?
Everybody’s got to have their code;
I’m turning on and tuning in and writing mine my friends, I’ll see you down the road.

I’ve been up, I’ve been down
I’ve been north, I’ve been south
And I’ve been…
From the east to the west
And my head is a mess and I need…
A moment to recollect and to figure out how it can be,
That I’m a stranger to me.

You have to live with what you really need.
You have to earn something and really bleed.
The path of least resistance makes you numb;
But when you lean into the wind it doesn’t matter where you’ve been coming from.

I’ve been up, I’ve been down
I’ve been north, I’ve been south
And I’ve been…
From the east to the west
Yet my head is a mess and I need…
A moment to recollect and to figure out how it can be,
That I’m a stranger to me.

I’ve been up, I’ve been down
I’ve been north, I’ve been south
And I’ve been…
From the east to the west
Yet my head is a mess and I see…
That everybody has changed and I’ve become a stranger to me…
I’m a stranger to me.

about

Paul Luc Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Tried my hand in the nine-to-five world but left to go my own way. The independent spirit is not dead and I'm inspired by restless people who choose to live, not just exist. Pittsburgh is where my heart is.

As a kid, I absorbed sounds from my parents record collection: The Band, Neil Young, CSN, John Lennon...which led me to Van Zandt, Dylan, Prine...all the good stuff.
