lyrics

Always wanna sing about the ones that went bad
Find myself cryin’ for the worst ones I’ve had
I’m pulled over by the side of the road waiting on the rain to pass

Always wanna hear the words that you never said
a song that hasn’t played before is stuck in my head
I’m waiting for the day I wake up and find myself content with less

I’m always waiting for, I’m always waiting for the wrong thing
I’m always wanting more, I’m always waiting for the wrong thing

Always tryin’ to make it through and saying I’m fine
I catch myself hurrying through the good times
we’re standing at a fork in the road and it’s time to make up our minds

We’re always fighting for, we’re always fighting for the wrong thing
we’re always fighting for, we’re always wanting more of the wrong thing

You always said that if it came to this you’d stay until the fade-out
but you’re not staying
I keep believing in a love that's strong enough that it'll save us
but I'm still waiting

Always wanna dry my tears and move on too fast
Fool myself by thinking that the next one will last
but I’m pulled over by the side of the road waiting on the rain to pass

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."
