20 Seconds 00:51
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

Old Faces 02:25
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

Show Up 01:40
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

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

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

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

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

Summer 05:46
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

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
