We Are Here 03:59
I burn forward into days of fear and pride I burn forward til there's nowhere left to hide I burn forward so bright I can't see I burn forward past yesterday's dreams I come for tomorrow with a vengeance When I take it by the throat I might do some damage But I broke the trail for all to see That the fight within can be redeemed We are here Right now free We are peace We are dreams We are tomorrow We must believe We are free We are free Way down deep beyond where I've gone Under the first rock before the first song Way down deep before we were here Way down deep there is no fear We are here Right now free We are peace We are dreams We are tomorrow We must believe We are free We are free We get lost sometimes alone in the dark Where's the way out a new place to start Here's the secret as old as time There's no lost just new roads to find When we arrive at the place we are And know our own hearts from the end to the start Then we'll know only one thing matters To love and love again and love ever after We are here Right now free We are peace We are dreams We are tomorrow We must believe We are free We are free Love never dies... © 2014.

Hold Me 06:30
Was he high Were you there Did she promise Will I dare Was he high Were you there Did she promise Will I dare Was he high that day when we were walking by He smiled so sweetly it almost made me cry Were you there I can't remember when I met you the first time Talking to a friend and waiting in that line Did she promise to be faithful did you promise to be true It was always on their lips but never followed through Will I dare you ask so smugly you assume you can guess I wouldn't write me off I've got some tricks up this dress Was he high were you there Did she promise will I dare Was he high Were you there Did she promise Will I dare Through the doorway through the light Through the end and through the night Through what's holy and through the smite Through all sounds and through all sights Through befores and afters too Through my hate and your confused Look of fear that fills the air Through the hiding through the dare Through what's ugly and through what's true Through with me and through with you Through your colors and my disdain Through all ornaments of fame Through my daydreams and nightmares all Through the wild through the call Through my thoughts you can't see Through the mess that can't be cleaned Through all accents through all hurt Through the sun and through the dirt Through what's never going to be said Through the living Through the dead Through another childish attempt Through the panic and the rent Through tomorrows not here yet Through the laughter through the rest Through through through and through some more Through the unseen open door Through all the times I lost sight Through the last days of fallen might I can't remember anything of where I once was Of what it all meant or how I pulled the plug I can't remember time or if it's come around again I can't remember love I can't remember sin Hold me harder hold me tight Hold me til i can't even sigh Hold me one more minute more Hold me hold me hold me sore © 2014.

No Words 04:49
I remember clearly when you first walked away You don't remember when you said you'd always stay We never got our stories to tell the same tale The more that we said the less love was felt Over and over and over again You said your words into the din You made your case you tried so hard But all your words just closed my heart Your words my words No words were the right words Words left on the table, words on the floor We lost the words love had made us for Words left on the table, words on the floor We lost the words love had made us for They came to me scrambled They came to me confused They came to me in pockets Of light and then diffused Your words came on arrows That tried to pierce my chest I built my armor with pride And wore it long after you left Your words my words No words were the right words Your words my words No words were the right words Words left on the table, words on the floor We lost the words love had made us for Words left on the table, words on the floor We lost the words love had made us for I still fight with you sometimes in my head You still ignore me like I'm dead Maybe one day the end will be over Then some new words can help us win this war Your words my words No words were the right words Your words my words No words were the right words Words left on the table, words on the floor We lost the words love had made us for Words left on the table, words on the floor We lost the words love had made us for © 2014.

Clap Clap 04:17
Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap The president rode down off his mountain to the west And he gathered all the farmers, all the bankers, all the vets And he turned back to show them whence he come and what he done But that big old mountain had vanished in the sun The sun was cold that other day not so long ago When you shouted through the snowflakes it was time to go You didn't wait for an answer you had a train to catch You disappeared into a storm and I couldn't call you back Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap It's another sort of question he couldn't decide Whether to abandon all those secrets he did hide So he set to count them out one by one But that sun was burning hot so he chose to run The willow sways one way as the birds fly overhead The lawn mower tries to stop the grass before it's dead That hot sun fresh cut smell it fills the air And you're looking for some distance into which we can stare Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap © 2014.

I tripped over myself on the way to nowhere Hanging on to love that I couldn’t spare To find there’s no cure for all these doubts so Mostly, I’m not around I watch the night like an injured hawk Thinking of the prey that I once caught Knowing my days are counting down Mostly, I’m not around I looked up at God and I said when do I get out God glared back and gave me a frown So I’m on this shelf at the lost and found Mostly I’m not around © 2014 Anne Stott.

I hook onto your breath heavy and low I wonder when it will be time to go She turns to me so soft and says Do you have a song in your head Do you have a song in your head Can all good things be true When this bed is left and made Will there still be me and you Her whisper lingers as the night holds on I wander through fields and fight the dawn Love shadows my moves heeding only her laws And a daze of moving pictures play on my heart’s wall Do you have a song in your head Which of your memories have come true Have these words all been said Is this tune one you already knew Do you have a song in your head She asks so sweet and true Like the comfort of your touch And the last good thing we do Do you have a song in your head Can all good things be true Do you have a song in your head Which of your memories have come true Do you have a song in your head She asks so sweet and true Like the comfort of your touch And the last good thing we do © 2014 Anne Stott.

Light Breaks 08:43
I dream of blue I dream of red I dream of living somewhere other than my head I dream of dreams from long ago I dream tomorrow and never let go Light breaks Dreams of forgiveness dreams of hate Dreams of my mother and dreams of fate Dreams that won't leave me dreams that won't die Linger with dreams that are lost with just one sigh Light breaks I dream I know all that's unknown I dream a vision of light that's so honed Its rays shine forth on each new end I dream I wander I love and I accept Light breaks The sun shines and the clocks tick Lovers pray and the artists sin The sun shines and the clocks tick Lovers pray and the artists sin Dreams come in Dreams come in Dreams come in Light breaks © 2014.

I've known your name before On a breath through an age old door But who could guess what was in store Just when it seemed there was no more I've known your name before I've known your name before Your eyes show me all my lies With a blue that's bluer than the skies Shining light on my deepest sighs Then that shimmer of delight Your eyes show me all my lies Your eyes show me all my lies You walk with me in my dreams Across moons and oceans and time you reach To whisper somethings and nothings sweet The sunrise light through window streams You walk with me in my dreams You walk with me in my dreams I've known your name before Your eyes are more blue than the sky You walk with me in my dreams I've known your name before © 2014.

about

Anne Stott Provincetown, Massachusetts

My name is Anne Stott
I am an indie rock singer/songwriter.
I am an actor.
I am a political rabble rouser.
A thought thinker and a dream dreamer.
I’m a life liver. A seeker of more.
And a flawed worshipper at the altar of love.
Welcome to my world.
