Hassles The strengths of this brief recording lie with the tasteful musical arrangements, the lyrical content and Laura's remarkable vocal prowess harbouring a touch of heartfeltedness so often lacking in her peers. This meager offering will leave one yearning. Simply amazing.

Track Name: 8:7
Scorn my love and scorch your heart,
With empty chairs and words unspoken.
Crushed my halo 'neath your feet.
Don't tell me that it's gone and broken.

Don't hold your mind.
Don't hold your mind.
Don't hold your mind.
Don't hold your mind... like you'd hold me.

Drop the stones from out your hands,
And spite from off your tongues.
Oh Lord, rinse me down that I might follow.
Call upon me that I might
Answer your call... Your call..

Don't hold your mind.
Don't hold your mind.
Don't hold your mind.
Don't hold your mind... like you'd hold me.

Like you'd hold me....
Like you'd hold me.
Track Name: Paper Thoughts
Follow down this paper trail,
Words that fall on deaf ears.
Ink that’s wasted on all the wrong times,
A heart that’s walled up for too many years.

Ifs and buts and words you meant.
I breathe again and it all disappears.
Hold your breath and keep the love.
I breathe again and it all disappears.

But I guess it feels so wrong being this far from home.
I see the bitterness you hold’s burning through your bones,
Making you fall... as you fight to keep alive.

Pour through pages of sheer infatuation,
But words can’t give this story life.
I am unable to call the white lies.
I have lost myself between the lines.

Ifs and buts and words you meant.
I breathe again and it all disappears.
Hold your breath and keep the love.
I breathe again and it all disappears.

But I guess it takes some light to find your way home.
I see the bitterness you hold’s burning through your bones,
Making you fall... as you fight to keep alive.
Track Name: Who Is That Stranger
Who is that stranger in your mind?
The one who’s telling you not to be kind.
Who is that stranger in your bed?
The one who’s taking over my side.

Who am I to follow?
‘Cause we are falling from the lines of your mind.
Then the strangeness comes and I’ve nowhere else to go…
So I hide… I hide.

I tried to fix us but couldn’t stop the world from tearing us down
I tried to paint us but our colours seemed to melt to brown
We do exist outside the realms of ‘You and I’
But I still find myself asking..

Who is that stranger?
Who is that stranger?
Who is that stranger in your bed?

Lay her down, her smile to taste.
Your hands all up in her hair, and around her waist.
I’m getting past the hardest part…
But nobody seems to see…
It’s breaking my heart…

I tried to fix us but couldn’t stop the world from tearing us down
I tried to paint us but our colours seemed to melt to brown
We do exist outside the realms of ‘You and I’
But I still find myself asking..

Who is that stranger?
Who is that stranger?
Who is that stranger in your bed?
Track Name: Recall
I close my eyes to the green light's light,
And the streets of pretty strangers walking the night.
All to keep my head and hands in check
As I recall your name.
And for the last time...

Pull the stars from the sky,
Her eyes, and watch the darkness fall.
All down to whispers of suggestion singing;
Nobody falls halfway.

Nurse the audacity.
The silence hangs like paintings on the walls.
Crossing a broken bridge.
The silence hangs like paintings on the walls,

With us all, with us all.

Drag a rope from our depths, your lies
They keep my mind at rest
Our fingers locked to keys that bind us, singing;
Nobody falls halfway

Nurse the audacity,
The silence hangs like paintings on the walls.
Crossing a broken bridge.
The silence hangs like paintings on the walls,

With us all, with us all.

Whiskey'd veins
Fuel basement thoughts
Of memory'd games
Leaving my mind in knots.

I close my eyes to the green light's light,
And the streets of pretty strangers walking the night.
All to keep my head and hands in check
As I recall your name...

For the last time.
