MUSIC

For Laurie Haines, music didn’t enter the picture until a few years after college.   She quickly transitioned into writing lyrics and was able add another dimension to her writing. Shortly thereafter, she signed up for voice and guitar lessons and formed the band, NonProphet.  In addition, it was music that tied all of her major relationships together. The songs written about one guy, lead her to meet another boyfriend in the recording studio, which ultimately landed the CD in the hands of another relationship.

Below are some songs from both Laurie Haines and her band NonProphet.  Click on title to play songs.

BELOW ARE THE FULL LYRICS

I WILL FOREVER –  click to play song
there comes a time
when life is more than divine
and i don’t want to ever
walk it alone

and i can face the truth
if it’s just me and you
and i’d give you everything
i’d give you, my everything, i would

when you look at me
i feel lost and hopelessly
in love with all of you
and i feel you staring back at me

cuz in these moments i will forever be
i will forever do, i will forever, forever love you

sometimes, when i’ve lost my way
i look in your eyes
and it brings me home again
from this crowded space that suffocates and never lets me breathe

cuz in these moments i will forever be
i will forever do, i will forever  love you

take a minute and never forget
i don’t want to ever lose this feeling
hold me tight and don’t let go
i don’t care as long as you’re here with me

and it just gets better and better
and it just gets better and better

cuz in these moments i will forever be
i will forever do,  forever love you

when you look at me
i feel lost and hopelessly in love

and it just gets better and better
and it just gets better and better
 
1000 TIMES – click link to see video 
my heart’s been breaking a 1000 times
i’m not so sure about your words anymore
i close my eyes and all i see
is wanting a future with you and me

i sit here thinking like a man
but my soul is feeling like a girl without a plan
i wish i could erase these thoughts
but my memories need your touch

so many times i’ve wanted change
to let go of things you can’t explain
and every time i take a breath
i feel your hands across my chest

please protect me from the darkness
when i lye awake i want to see your face
don’t run away, i want you to stay
please don’t run away, i want you to stay

and i go on believing you’re the one
who will care for me
stand by me
hold me in your arms
you’re the love of my life
until this world is done
 
WAITING – click link to see video
not more time
not more change
not more excuses or reasons why
just keep looking
keep hoping
keep believing things will be fine

cuz i’m waiting
for a change to occur
yeah i’m waiting
for life to be good

start to heal
start to feel
start believing in what is real

and i don’t care
and i don’t want to know
how life is better up there
when i’m down here

cuz i’m done crying
done with all the games
done with all the lies
that kept me sane

cuz i’m waiting

don’t call don’t write
it’s too late i won’t fight
let me lye in my thoughts tonight
let me learn to let go
let me never forget
let the thoughts that aren’t broken
be all that i’ve kept

cuz i’m waiting for words
waiting for love
waiting for answers to come from above
waiting for space
waiting for life to begin
waiting for feelings to come again

cuz there’s pieces of you
still stuck in me
i don’t know if i could ever let you see
some days i feel fragile
and some days i’m strong
some days i don’t know
where i belong

cuz i’m waiting
 
ENTITLED – click to play song
i’m entitled to a life without regret
i’m entitled to walk without a step
i’m entitled to know not where i go
i’m entitled to want what’s not my own

so bring me your tear stained petaled flowers
and bring me your honey coated dreams
i’ll give you pieces of forever
i’ll give you life to breathe

i’m waiting for the parting lonely hours
i’m waiting for the clouds to welcome me
i’m waiting for the breaks between the water
i’m waiting to know who it is is me

i move without direction
i follow what’s not seen
i take each pause believing
the next one’s meant for me

don’t throw away tomorrow
don’t pretend i cannot bleed
just remember where you started
when you were once like me

SKYBOUND – click to play song
so this is where we go
to feel who we are
this is where we go
when distance is not far

and then the music happened
where lyrics filled the air
common words were spoken
an unknown pattern there

so where does the sky go
and the ground beneath the trees
where does the wind blow
when all the snow melts down on me

they fade away my hours
then drift me off to sleep
they bring me to tomorrow
where once again we meet

time disappears the day
clouds hide between the colors
locked between the walls
we crave to be discovered

ignited paths are merging
on roads built on dreams
the higher hand is playing
as broken threads are seamed

so wake me to the words
and lay me with your voice
rhythm guide me towards
dancing drum beats of choice

so this is where we go
to feel who we are
this is where we go
when distance is not far

LAST NIGHT– click to play song
do you feel my eyes tracing your face
i follow rounded corners
examining every space

do you know that i watch you
with your eyes wide shut
i count your breathing pauses
to chase away my thoughts

do you know i almost touch you
my hands fractions from your skin
i feel the silent sense
reminding me how we begin

last night the pattern broke
a welcome change to trodden roads
last night you let me in
to only see what has never been

do you care to know these things
the times between your sleep
when i lay there half naked
feeling incomplete

just remember what the morning brings
when tired eyes can hardly raise
remember who it is i am
waiting for you to one day stand

i am to you
what you are to her
addicted to the mind
where tortured pleasure fills the time

we crave a desperation
then feel the inspiration

last night the pattern broke
a welcome change to trodden roads
last night you let me in
to only see what has never been

NAKED IN A PILE – click to play song
came home last night, shaved my legs again with a butcher knife
hung out in my parents’ room, found a porno flick labeled new cartoons
turn the volume up, oh my god, can’t you see she’s stuck
took a better look, mom and dad, you’re making me sick                 

i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
put a record on, let the dogs out, let’s go crazy
i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
everybody feel everybody

smoke out, what for, thought i’d get it on with the girl next door
lights on, clothes off, get the camera out set the tripod up
started wigging out her riddalin was on the couch
poured a glass of milk, her face was on a missing person’s report
i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
put a record on, let the dogs out, let’s go crazy
i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
everybody feel everybody

tried to get inside, move it bitch, or you’re gonna die
what the hell is wrong is everyone on drugs in this town

i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
put a record on, let the dogs out, let’s go crazy
i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
put a record on, let the dogs out, let’s go crazy
i was thinking later on tonight we could all get naked in a pile
everybody feel, everybody feel, everybody feel everybody

I’VE BEEN WAITING – click to play song
i’ve been waiting for something better to come along
i’ve been waiting can’t you hear my heart’s been beating strong

don’t you know i loved you, that i could never tell you
how much longer do i have to wait

i was hoping for this chance, could of lasted forever
i saw the things you didn’t feel, now i’m being remembered
crash and burn we pick up the pieces
happiness scattered around
too much wasted on feeling down

i’ve been waiting now i’ve been left her on my own
i’ve been waiting time has never felt so alone

don’t you know i loved you, that i could never tell you
how much longer do i have to wait

i was hoping for this chance, could of lasted forever
i saw the things you didn’t feel, now i’m being remembered
crash and burn we pick up the pieces
happiness scattered around
too much wasted on feeling down

i was silenced by my fears did you leave me unwanted
my thoughts have been running out of breath, you took me for granted

night turns to day i’m still here waiting
pictures of us i’m not escaping
too much here reminds me of you

crash and burn we pick up the pieces
happiness scattered around
too much wasted on feeling, too much wasted on feeling
too much wasted on feeling down

PERFECT DAY – click to play song
there’s no need to run, you’ve found your sun
history fades away into the night
fragile touches, awaken hearts
start to feel alive for once, to be revived

i can enjoy life for the second time around, things i’ve never seen
believe today i’m gonna fly away, breathe the air in heaven

sometimes i fall, upside down
sometimes i laugh, when you’re not around
help me, i’m drowning from the perfect day

danced till i fell down, smiled on the ground
future’s looking bright, you’re not alone

handheld kisses, whispered thoughts
moments drift away from times beating clock

i can feel the rush from your touch, pulsing by my side
moving fast beyond a rejected past, healing has begun

sometimes i fall, upside down
sometimes i laugh, when you’re not around
help me, i’m drowning from the perfect day

sometimes i fall, upside down
sometimes i laugh, when you’re not around
help me, i’m drowning from the perfect day

YESTERDAY’S TEARS – click to play song
did you ever feel sad alone
did you ever feel completely insane
did you ever feel unwanted
confused and mangled up inside again

woke up in the middle of the day
sheets pulled over with the sun’s glare in my face

i couldn’t believe what i had to do
and live in a world so untrusting and cruel

lost and i’m never to be found
can’t seem to discern what’s real
fast fiction is all i hear
it’s a lonely cry, it’s a lonely cry

tired of the lies of the empty promises made
hopes being raised day after day
said you’ll help me then you leave me
with no where to go, i’m hanging with the ground far below

lost and i’m never to be found
can’t seem to discern what’s real
fast fiction is all i hear
it’s a lonely cry, it’s a lonely cry, it’s a lonely cry from yesterday’s tears

to survive in this place you’ve got to be strong
no one can take your dreams away
keep believing in who you are
to hell to anyone who tries to tear you down

lost and i’m never to be found
can’t seem to discern what’s real
fast fiction is all i hear
lost and i’m never to be found
lost and i’m never to be found
can’t seem to discern what’s real
fast fiction is all i hear
it’s a lonely cry, it’s a lonely cry, it’s a lonely cry, from yesterday’s tears

NOBODY’S BUSINESS – click to play song
you speak like no one’s listening
and you talk like there’s no one around
but you fail to see i’m in front of you
and you carry on though you know i’m feeling down

so i take this pain and run away
beyond the distant choices i’ve made
don’t try to see
when you know damn well you’ll never be there

and i go on like it’s nobody’s business
feeling as if time has never worked at all
tearing apart this life we created
i’m not holding your dream
and i’m not gonna let me fall

when you come calling
don’t be so surprised to see me in a new light
not hidden behind a disguise or buried with your lies
i will be sure to let you know i’m better off without you

and i go on like it’s nobody’s business
feeling as if time has never worked at all
tearing apart this life we created
i’m not holding your dream
and i’m not gonna let me fall

no more waiting by the phone
no more spending nights alone
no more calling me at three to come meet you
i never asked you for much
i never felt another’s touch
i never told you how i missed you

and i go on like it’s nobody’s business
feeling as if time has never worked at all
tearing apart this life we created
i’m not holding your dream
and i’m not gonna let me fall

and i go on like it’s nobody’s business
feeling as if time has never worked at all
tearing apart this life we created
i’m not holding your dream
and i’m not gonna let me fall

BELIEVE IN ME – click to play song
and i wonder, yeah i wonder
how much longer i would be here
sitting at home with all of my fear
lately, things aren’t changing
part of me still not grown, wishing i was on my own
in the darkness of my, indecisive mind
choices present themselves, not to be regretted
i was hoping for something more secure
but at times you’ve got to get up, you’ve got to let go

i believe in

looking back to see, a little part of me
waiting for time to mature, escaping from this mixed up world
then i realized, time was on my side
my thoughts are breaking and i’ve got to let go

i believe in me, believe in me

sleeping underneath my skin,
i could feel the battles from within
torn between tomorrow, my reality is now

i believe in me, believe in me, i believe in me

STARING AT HER -click to play song
he’s chasing down a girl today
skies are blue and nothing’s grey
through the city streets she walks
fears of nothing she hasn’t talked

will she look behind her
will she smile his way
through the stained doors he stands
staring at her staring at her staring at her

she talks to him they order a drink
thinks she’s pretty but she can’t think
he looks down her shirt
staring at her staring at her staring at her

eyes like sugar taste the rain
lips like fire his world changed
staring at her staring at her staring at her
heart’s start racing moves too fast
looks like this one could last
staring at her staring at her staring at her

he takes her home that night
shared a bed and held her tight
left her sleeping all alone
another fuck and i went home

eyes like sugar taste the rain
lips like fire his world changed
staring at her staring at her staring at her
heart’s start racing moves too fast
looks like this one won’t last
staring at her staring at her staring at her

eyes like sugar taste the pain
lips like fire and nothing’s changed
staring at me staring at me staring at me staring at you staring at me

eyes like sugar taste the rain
lips like fire his world changed
staring at her staring at her staring at her
heart’s stopped racing moved too fast
looks like this one didn’t last
staring at her staring at her staring at her

COME DREAM WITH ME – click to play song
i slept alone tonight
i thought of you as i closed my eyes
no one can fill your space
where you used to lie

i want to sleep under the stars with you
in your arms holding me
i want to feel you breath
into the distance come dream with me

come dream with me, come back to where you used to be
i need you by my side, i need you to hold me tight
come dream with me

did you sleep under the stars tonight
rest your head under the big bright sky
did you hold me in your dreams
wishing i was by your side

come dream with me, come back to where you used to be
i need you by my side, i need you to hold me tight

around and round i would follow you, far and wide across the ocean
around and round i would follow you, i would find a way

come dream with me, come dream with me, come dream with me
come back to where you used to be, i need you by my side,
i need you to hold me tight
come dream with me

i slept alone tonight
i want you, i want you

COVER SONGS
FOREVER YOUNG – by Alphaville – click to play song
let’s start in style let’s dance for awhile
heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies
hoping for the best but expecting the worst
are you gonna drop the bomb or not

let us die young let us live forever
we don’t have the power but we never say never
sitting in the sandpit life is a short trip
the music’s for the sad man

can you imagine when this race is won
turn our golden faces into the sun
praising our leaders we’re getting in tune
music’s for the madman

forever young i want to be forever young
do you really want to live forever forever and ever
forever young i want to be forever young
do you really want to live forever, forever young

some are like water some are like the heat
some are a melody and some are the beat
sooner or later they all will die young, why don’t they stay young

it’s so hard to get old without a cause
i don’t want to perish like a fading horse
youth’s like diamonds in the sun
and diamonds are forever

so many adventures didn’t happen today
so many songs we forgot to play
so many dreams swinging out of the blue
let them come true

forever young i want to be forever young
do you really want to live forever forever and ever
forever young i want to be forever young
do you really want to live forever, forever young
