Kara Suzanne New York

Part sullen cowgirl, part seductive cabaret singer and all soulful folk-rock songstress. Kara bewitches audiences with her original songs that are simultaneously heartbreaking and carefree. She's this generation's answer to Dolly Parton and Patty Griffin.

Track Name: Stumblin'
So I met the boy I’ve always dreamed of
at a party at my friend Cristina’s
there I was trying to numb my pain
when this God among men came up and told me his name

He had everything I knew he would
He said everything I thought he should
but my hedonistic mind it was stoned by
all I’d consumed, so now I’ve blown it with my

Stumblin' and fumblin’
and my mumblin’ and fumblin’,
and my stumblin'

He was trying to talk to me but I could not speak
to prove that I’m the best girl that he ever will meet,
instead I was that girl who should have just said no
and I turned it all into quite a show, with my

Stumblin' and fumblin’
and my mumblin’ and fumblin’,
and my Stumblin'

It figures that I’d go and blow my chance
with the only boy that I’d say yes to a dance
and the only boy who’s ever stirred this heart,
I knew I’d know him but now I won’t start


I’d give up all self-medicating to see him again
to have another chance to show him who I really am
to see if there’s a reason why I’ve always seen his face
when I close my eyes oh god can I erase all of my

Stumblin,and fumblin’
and my mumblin’ and fumblin’,
and my Stumblin’,

lalalala
hmmmdadadada
hmmmmdadadada
hmmmdadadadadada

Lalalalala
Lalalalala
Lalalalala
Track Name: Purgatory
Woe is me I'm in purgatory
Cause yesterday I died.
Got blown up on a bus somewhere
While I was overworked and tired.
They told you on the news it was a man
From a distant land.
You took it in as truth,
Cause it's easier
To believe.

Oh, how I wasted my time
Oh, how I wasted my time

It's all about controlling,
The masses with fear.
That's one good thing about this death of mine,
It's made all this shit quite clear.
My loved ones cry cause they dont' know why I
Had to die in vain.
In limbo with the truth
And all I can do is pray.

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

As this line gets closer to those
Famous gates,
And the time draws near for me to be judged
For my mistakes.
There's one that haunts me the most.
Now that I see all I could have changed.

It's how I wasted my time.
Oh how I wasted my time.

So Raise your hands in the air.
Say a little prayer, for me.

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Oh how I wasted my time.
Track Name: Congratulations
Congratulations
Here’s to the rest of your life
Congratulations
This is where I say good bye

You're right on time, here to tourture me
Here to play for a day and then you leave
My dear old friend, the first to rip me apart
It wasn't hard cause I've never been…
...smart with my heart

Sometimes it's not, what you say you got
But you just go through with it…anyway
Now all I can say is

Congratulations honey
Here's to the rest of your life
Congratulations honey
This is where I say goodbye

[guitar solo]

You met someone, back in Oregon
She’s got a ring and you’ve set the day
What more can I say but

Congratulations honey
Here's to you and here's to the little wife
Congratulations honey
This is where I say goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: I Promise
Sunday at the diner I was having a cup of tea
but happy was killed when I heard my ex-honey
I saw him with a girl, they were holding hands
I was halfway under the table when I heard him say

It’s alright if you trust me
It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby
I promise I won’t go there

Well I hid there stupified in my disbelief
Cause that crazy son of a bitch
had said the same to me
and I let down my guard, I just let him inside
What he wanted he got with a simple line

It’s alright if you trust me
It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby
I promise I won’t go there

When he left I thought the fault must be mine
Now I see he uses this routine all the time
We’ve all been stung, by the love scorpion
I’ll alway hope that’s why I believe

Sunday at the diner with my hot hot cup of tea
I could scald his stupid face or tell her he said the same to me
Now I know I’ve changed and found happy on my own
I’ve got to trust again cause they aren’t all like him
he’s not the first and he won’t be the last to say

It’s alright if you trust me
It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby
I promise I won’t go there

It’s alright if you trust me
It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby
I promise I won’t go there
Track Name: Ritalin
Down deep in the thick of it
I reach for your hand and I pray
That I can find you wash the dark away
And once healed you'll stay

Are you a victim of our times of video games and sugar
Daddy worships the TV and momma she's got Jesus
Here's some Ritalin to fix you
We're not quite sure what it will do

Hey now, hey now I cried all day
Dropped you off in a dark parking lot
With nothing more to say
To a little boy lost, lost without his light

What has happened to the sweet little baby I once knew
You grew up so fast I missed my chance to say something wise to you

Hey now, hey now I cried all day
Dropped you off in a dark parking lot
With nothing more to say
To a little boy lost, lost without his light
Track Name: Look Up
It’s cool we’re broke, you joke, that you like life this way
Besides the struggle will make us stronger
You rip through my walls and fall down deep into me
Am I weak cause I couldn’t hold them longer?

You think you never loose, well I’m here to tell you,
The truth wants out, if you’re not happy please just go
I’m not afraid to be alone, just show me your eyes and I’ll know

Look up, Look up, Look up at me
Look up, Look up and say it again to me
Look up, Look up so I can see
If you are lying once again to me

I know you so like myself
I know you always want more
Then the fights at night when you come home late again
And you’re fascinated by the floor

Look up, Look up, Look up at me
Look up, Look up and say it again to me
Look up, Look up so I can see
If you are lying once again to me

You think you’ll never loose, well I’m here to tell you,
The truth wants out, if you’re not happy please just go
I’m not afraid to be alone, just show me your eyes and I’ll know

Look up, Look up, Look up at me
Look up, Look up and say it again to me
Look up, Look up so I can see
If you are lying once again to me
Track Name: Eleven
I know a boy, a pretty boy
He thinks a lot of himself,
if you were drowning he’d never help you
Then one day, I was talking to him by a mirror
I thought it be fun to count how many times he looked at himself

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven

I know a girl, a lovely girl
She has a boy that won’t let go, he cries and cries I love you so
Then one day we spied him down on the street
We started to count how many times he walked by her house

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven

What’s the connection? is it coincidence? am I sane?
Every time I start to count it always ends up the same
Maybe there’s something to this numerology

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven

I have a brother & he's a very bad, bad boy
It seems he can’t be helped, only in it for himself
Then one day our momma said that’s it no more
Cause she started to count how many times she'd bailed him out

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven
Track Name: Grow Up
I just figured out what is wrong
I had misread you all along
and I don’t need to understand why
As you use your charms to get you by

Comeback and see me when you grow up
Comeback and see me when you grow up
Comeback and see me when you grow up
Comback when you growup

I can’t blame you cause you don’t know
or if you do you don’t let it show
I need to stop trying to understand why
You won’t ever change or even try

You said it was all for fun and I’m
not the only one that holds your adoration
The fool is me, but in time we’ll see,
if you ever could possilby

Comeback and see me when you grow up
Comeback and see me when you grow up
Comeback and see me when you grow up
Baby, Comback if you growup

Oh darling dry your eyes
Are these all the games you have left to try?
You won’t win cause you don’t know
You have so much to give but so far to go

You said it was all for fun and I’m
not the only one to hold your adoration
The fool is me, but in time we’ll see,
if you ever possibly could come back to save me

Maybe baby you could Comeback when you grow up
Comeback when you grow up
If you ever grow up
Track Name: Libertina
I was rigid against the wall
I didn’t think it through at all
Then I tried to escape the blame

And you knew I didn’t want to
Loose myself in you
But it’s just so goddamn easy

Lady Libertina she told me it’s a spiral these lessons she brings

In the cold car of the light rail
I realized you were the nail
And I’d driven you in myself

And you knew I didn’t want to
Loose myself in you
But it’s just so goddamn easy

Lady Libertina it’s a spiral she say these lessons she brings

Wise Wise Lady I won't hide when you seek
To teach this stubborn soul where to go

Lady Libertina
it's round and round and round come the lessons
Lady Libertina she told me it's a spiral these lessons she brings
Oh she brings lalalalalala oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Lucky Girl
You know I never wanted to be the one who lost
I never would have flaunted that kind of happiness costs

I could have been the one to make her go away
But just for one night cause she’s in your head to stay
Why do we always want what we can never have?
I just look at what she’s got and I understand she’s a

Lucky girl
Lucky girl
Lucky girl to be yours

If I didn’t have to glimpse or ever speak to you again
I know I could convince my self that you were just a whim

But circumstance butts in again to let me know
I can look all I want but I can never own
Why do we always want what we can never have?
I just look at what she’s got and I understand she’s a

Lucky girl
Lucky girl
Lucky girl to be yours

To be loved like that, committing your heart and your mind
Possibly the ultimate, those that do that are hard to find

It would be so sad if life goes on and she never knows
The sacrifices made in her name it goes just to show
That we never want what we already have
I wanna shake her hard to make her understand she’s a

Lucky girl
Lucky girl
Lucky girl to be……. yours

To be yours , to be yours, to be yours
Track Name: All the Children
Lola brings us pictures
She’s colored by herself
You take her in your arms
And I loose myself

All the children love you
And they’re not the only ones
I’m just hoping that my stubborn ways
Don’t chase away this sun

It’s just how I love you
Just how I do
It’s just how I love you
And oh how I do

I kinda thought this would be different
You always hear it’s quite a show
I’ve had all sorts of sparkle & fades
But when I found you I came home

It’s just how I love you
Just how I do
It’s just how I love you
And oh how I do

You came & broke these chains around this old heart
They could have bound me forever
You found good in me waiting to be set free
And oh how you made it all better
The way you really see me
And I really see you

It’s just how I love you
Just how I do
It’s just how I love you
And oh how I do
