lyrics

It is just as if the trees can sense the state line
and grow taller on the side where I belong
and if that is not enough to welcome me back
I am wanted by the arms that I call home
This endless road is haunted and it makes me feel so small

Take me in your arms
Tell me it’s alright
Tell me that the two of us will sleep soundly tonight
Say that’s all we need
convince me I am strong
and I will stand inside your words and let them hold me up
But I am never not broken by it all

We like to say that some things take a village
but the villages got swallowed by the towns
and our towns all have their dreams of bigger cities
so I guess that no-one’s never lonely now
All of my words are haunted by the fear I don’t belong

Take me in your arms and tell me it’s alright
Tell me that the two of us will sleep soundly tonight
Say that’s all we need
convince me I am strong
and I will stand inside your words and let them hold me up
But I am never not broken
never not broken
I am never not broken

Every moment (never not broken)
Every moment (never not broken)
Every moment (never not broken)
I will lay my body down and break again if it will help
and though I pick the pieces up I know I have more power here
on the ground
on the ground

But I will get back up
say that it’s alright
that I have faith the two of us will sleep soundly tonight
I’ll say that’s all we need
and that I know I’m strong
and I will stand inside those words and let them hold me up
But I will never not be broken by it all

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."
