Music Monday

Hey guys welcome to week two of Music Monday. Wish I could say I was bringing you guys a Talicha J. original but alas, I'm still slacking on the music making front. So with that said I bring you a great artist that I have been following for a few years now. Her name is Alexz Johnson and she is a Canadian singer/songwriter with an amazing voice. If you have never heard her sing before then you are in for a treat! The song that I'm going to share with you all today is off of her latest EP, Skipping Stone. I really love that although she has worked with big companies, she has independently released her last album entitled Voodoo as well as this EP. Alexz has definitely been inspiring to me as a songwriter because she shows that you don't have to be with a large label to release great albums that reach the people. Anyways, here goes Skipping Stone:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdTgIm_Ar8s]

I took in the most that I could I never imagined that I would Be feeling so misunderstood Mmmm just following lines You race in my mind like a car You’ve beaten my heart so damn far And now I’ve been pacing the wall ‘Cause you’re under my hurt

Never thought I could Love you no never Never thought that I would Ever try to be anything better

My heart’s beaten better alone And if it is broke Why let you know This heart’s not your skipping stone If I’m sinking water Then why even bother Just leave it alone Mmmm this heart’s not your skipping stone

So maybe I should settle down And find a new man Let him throw my world around All his blueberry lies I know there isn’t a room Was left in the desk now It’s time to school Mmmm now, I’m a lovesick fool

Never knew that you Could just hold me hostage I’m losing my cool Through the pain somehow Don’t want you to stop it

My heart’s beaten better alone And if it is broke Why let you know This heart’s not your skipping stone If I’m sinking water Then why even bother Just leave it alone Hmmm ’cause this heart’s not your skipping stone

All the time I never let you in Was a lie I wasn’t letting you in And on the date You let me cry Was a lie

My heart’s beaten better alone And if it is broke Why let you know This heart’s not your skipping stone If I’m sinking water Why even bother Just leave it alone

If it is broke Why let you know This heart’s not your skipping stone If I’m sinking water Why even bother Just leave me alone

Hope you guys enjoyed Alexz Johnson's Skipping Stone. Check out more of her here and be sure to check back next week for #MusicMonday
