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.

Track Name: We Are Here
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...

Track Name: Hold Me
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

Track Name: No Words
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

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

Track Name: Mostly I'm Not Around
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

Mostly I'm not around

Track Name: Do You Have A Song In Your Head
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

Track Name: Light Breaks
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

Track Name: I've Known Your Name Before
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
