about

Connie Acher New York, New York

A New York City visual artist, Melodie Provenzano conceived of "Connie Acher" in 1996, while obsessively creating outsider folk pop on her four track late at night. Propelled by the tribulations of love and being alive, "Acher" stands for "one who aches" and "Connie" represents the pseudonymous character of her musical voice. ... more

Track Name: 20 Seconds
I got twenty seconds to tell you how I feel
I wish I was Mozart to tell you how I feel
Or Willie Nelson to tell you how I feel
I could take those keys and you could hear
I could show you the hole in my guitar and you could see
What my heart looks like
What my heart looks like
You could see
What my heart looks like
Track Name: Old Faces
He never speaks of things he can't forget
Perils of adventure, filling pockets with treasure
Till he can't move from under its weight
As the old faces replace the children

He never speaks, he never speaks
He never speaks, he never speaks
He never speaks, he never speaks
He never speaks, he never speaks
Things he can't forget
Things he can't forget
Perils of adventure, filling pockets with treasure
Till he can't move from under its weight
Filling pockets with treasure
As the old faces replace the children
He never speaks, he never speaks
things he can't forget
things he can't forget
As the old faces replace the children
Track Name: Show Up
Yeah, a special seat on the subway
A big brain not knowing what to do
A degrading train of thought
The people that you meet
When you're walking down the street
The gravity pull from this big guy behind me
I can hear him sniffling
A sewing machine without a master
Forgetting my dreams
I'm changing for sure
It's already too much though I want it to be longer
The worst case scenario, totally fed up
The best possible thing, within the next ten seconds
They'll show up, they'll show up, they'll show up
They'll show up

A sewing machine without a master
Forgetting my dreams
I'm changing for sure
Track Name: When I Was a Little Girl
When I was a little girl
I believed that I could fly
Take the fly swatter and spin it around
Jump off the slide

If I only believed enough
I could walk on water too
I could walk on water like somebody else did
If I only had faith

I believed that I could move a dictionary across the room
I believed that I would live in a mansion with an indoor swimming pool
If I only believed enough, I could walk on water too
I could walk on water like somebody else did
If i only had faith

Oh when I was a little girl
Track Name: Rush Hour Train
Getting out of work early
Put me on the rush hour train
Never as crowded as it is in the morning
When the sardine cliche is more than appropriate
Not even a pole to hold onto
Let alone a seat to sit down
There are those with their books or their New York Times
Their lipstick and their compact
Their eyes shut even while they're standing
I know they're not looking at me
Track Name: Concerning You
There are so many people on the Earth
I've only gotten to know two or three
So I don't have to suffer
But I don't want to tell the truth anymore
Especially not to you
I'll omit what you don't need to know
What will only hurt you

To many years of many miles keeping us apart
Seven years of anticipating our adventure together to start
I don't know what's the truth anymore
Especially concerning you
You tell me what happened five years ago
Which secretly hurt you

Nothing now is working out as I had planned
I wanted to be with you forever not another man
And I don't what's the truth anymore
Especially concerning you
You tell me that you've been resisting me
Because I will only smother you

I had every intention to end up by your side
All of my energy directed to end up by your side
But I don't know what's the truth anymore
Especially concerning you

I don't know what's the truth anymore
Especially concerning you
Track Name: Sticker Station
At the sticker station
You can give yourself a standing ovation
When you get your picture taken
With a choice of eight backgrounds
Everyone's trading portraits of themselves
No bigger than a stamp

So far I've gotten three
Sixteen of me and The Statue of Liberty
I've got ten left of me in the stars
And fifteen with the purple flowers

Who would of thought that at the Japanese bookstore
You could get a picture of yourself
That you can stick anywhere

At the sticker station
I give myself a standing ovation
When I get my picture taken

I think that I'm addicted
I've spent nine dollars already
And I'll get more
I'll get more
I'll get more
Track Name: Summer
In the middle of Seventh Avenue
I saw a Jaguar and a Lincoln Town car
Their owners were chasing each other around their brand new 99's
One shook a metal staff at the other while the other threw a knife

I guess it's time I bought a fan
Cause it's hotter than the Summer of Sam
I guess it's time to flee the street
Cause the people out there are acting crazy on account of this heat

They were like a large rock embedded in a stream
The traffic flowed around them smooth and clean
I couldn't believe what I saw
They kept it up until a cell-phoner gave the police a call

I guess it's time I bought a fan
Cause it's hotter than the Summer of Sam
I guess it's time to flee the street
Cause the people out there are acting crazy on account of this heat

The subway platform is pulling me
It's pulling gallons of sweat out of me
I'm hoping that the air-conditioned train will come and rescue me
Yeah I've been going to department stores to be in the AC
Spending all my money on popcorn dinners
To be in the cool air of the movies

I guess it's time I bought a fan
Cause it's hotter than the Summer of Sam
I guess it's time to flee the street
Cause the people out there are acting crazy on account of this heat

Taking showers three times a day
Luckily the water bill is my Landlord's to pay
It's hard to believe that the firetrucks I hear
Are going to a place even hotter than here

I guess it's time I bought a fan
Cause it's hotter than the Summer of Sam
I guess it's time to flee the street
Cause the people out there are acting crazy on account of this heat
