lyrics

Maybe I’m trying to be something I’m not
a girl who contains the world / someone who’s got a vast knowledge
of talking points stored in my head / to dispense commentary on why
we’ll all be dead in 25 years / maybe less, maybe more I would like to say
I’ve lived a successful story but who can confirm it if not for the cynics
and why am I still trying to prove I’m a winner to them

Oh-oh, oh, in 2500 years
Oh-oh, oh, in 2500 years
oh…..we won’t remember this

My job is not to know what I don’t know or pretend to be farther along
than I’ve grown but to soothe a few small wounds we all need to heal
to treat people well and to feel what I feel / and if that’s not enough for those
cynics and saints / I will offer it anyway even if it’s painful / hope is my choice
extra-strength medicine / and I still hope the good I believe in will win
but I know

Oh-oh, oh, in 2500 years
Oh-oh, oh, in 2500 years
oh…..we won’t remember this

about

Lara Ruggles Boulder, Colorado

After 3 1/2 years of sweat, pain, tears, love and actual blood, Lara Ruggles released Cynics & Saints on Immersive Records in October 2015.
FEMMusic: “…the most honest album I’ve heard since James Taylor or Joan Baez. Every single song exposes and elevates her.”
PopMatters: “…the 29-year-old combines Americana and lavish 1970s Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter fare with the confidence of a master."
