about

Cole Carr Portland, Oregon

Cole Carr was born in Portland, OR in November of 1994. His inability to form a stable band made him resort to the singer- songwriter genre, though he later found he enjoyed it after getting into the classics. He plays guitar and harmonica while singing on his acoustic tunes, but also likes to play every band instrument on his electric songs. He plays every instrument and records his own songs. ... more

Track Name: Truth
This is time to figure out who you are
Time to know your later days
Now I'm stowing my heart
I guess we'll go separate ways

You are my dream
It's a shame you can't stay
With me

Winding paths are out of sight
I'll go left, I guess you're right
Unfolding ourselves
You can't change me anyhow

You were my dream
It's a shame I can't stay
But you can carry on
The truth will set you free
Track Name: I Must Leave Now
I was born in the city
Of the pouring rain
And now my time has come
To ride that morning train

Oh lord, I must leave now
I've seen it all and it's time to get out
I know it's hard, but there ain't no other way
So I must leave now and I'll be back again another day

Looking out the window
I see a world I missed
How a life can be cured
Or betrayed by a kiss

Oh lord, I must leave now
I've seen it all and it's time to get out
I know it's hard, but there ain't no other way
So I must leave now and I'll be back again another day
Track Name: Walking
Now I walk today
Can't explain to you
All the pain

Watching life pass me by
Has no worth
Anymore
This time

My love has taken me away

Love is not my strength
Though it's deep inside
Of me

My love has taken me away
It hurts to see her run again

Now I walk again
Again, today
Watch it rain
Track Name: A Grief Ago
Some time ago, she called to me
Her past-tense mind and eternity
I looked in her eyes, and I felt her pain
Sympathy was endowed in vain

Hey babe, your heart is free
Free from my sweet serenity
Complications reflect to show
I only loved you a grief ago

Sweet sounds of jealousy, they sing to me
In perfect pitch and harmony
Long before love, innocence has been
Torn and frayed, and blown in the wind

Hey babe, your heart is free
Free from my sweet serenity
Complications reflect to show
I only loved you a grief ago
I only loved you a grief ago
Track Name: Empty Notes
If only I could stay away within the tangled tress
And sleep for days, among the brave, and huddled in the heap
Though I know my trials will soon arrive

I'd battle like a soldier in a bloody battleground
A gunslinger without a horse and headed homeward bound
Nobody but my lover on my side

Blow those empty notes
Let it echo to the sky
Feel your simple sorrow
Fade away to the night

Down the canyon bed there is a place that isn't found
A skinny creek that rolls and flows with it's sweeping sleeve of sound
As the smoke begins to rise in the air

Burning down the tears you begin to breathe again
Tucked within the green you feel no need to hold it in
Wind flying through your curly tangled hair

Blow those empty notes
Let it echo to the sky
Feel your simple sorrow
Release and say goodbye
Track Name: Save Me
I came into your life some summer night
I wasn't strong and wasn't brave
Looking at all my life you stole away
You had no soul that I could save

Save me, save me
Waiting for the forces to uncurl
Save me, save me
Save me from this God-Forsaken world

Closing in on my mind, I can't escape
Our hearts were built in different ways
Took me for a ride while you were in a daze
Skipping like a broken record plays

Save me, save me
Fleeing from the shadow of that girl
Save me, save me
Save me from this God-Forsaken world
Track Name: Panorama
Rushing wild into the earth
Though it's slowly killing me
Alone within myself again
Come and keep me company

Welcome to my paradise
Alone within the forest bed
A sleeping bag to spend the night
A flannel shirt beneath my head

Come along with me
Come into my arms
See me with your eyes
Stare into my heart

I saw her standing there, so graceful
In my land of choice
I was wondering around
I listened to her voice

I think I understand now
I found my heart of gold
I'm sitting, waiting so patiently
For our story to unfold

Come along with me
Come into my arms
See me with your eyes
Stare into my heart
Track Name: Lies
Count the crows that hang along the line
Afraid that love will take your aching mind
I lie awake and state into the rain
Love and loss are thrashing in my brain
But I'm here

Everything is going fast
It's rolling by me, it can't last
But it's alright
The future's flashing in my eyes
It hurts to look, and criticize
Lies, it's all lies
Lies

Count the crows that hang along the line
Numb your hurt that's lingering inside
Let me make your worries disappear
Love myself like I love you, my dear
Never in vain

Everything is going fast
It's rolling by me, it can't last
But it's alright
The future's flashing in my eyes
It hurts to look, and criticize
Lies, it's all lies
Lies
Track Name: Shades Of Blue
I'm leaving this morning
Taking the train away from you
I'm packing my suitcase
Ain't nothing your poor heart can do

Go save yourself, and reach for me
As I die

What's cold and what is ugly
Is not the wooden tracks I walk upon
It's what's inside that counts, babe
And I can't let this pain go on (for much longer, it hurts)

I'll take my pay, my heart will fade
Away

Now I'm getting myself together
I'm rolling back to where I'm going to
You've chained me to this concrete wall
And painted my heart shades of blue

The time is now, erase those shades
Of blue
Track Name: Evergreen
Light my life like a cigarette
Feel the thorns within my lungs
Paintings of thoughts that I forget
Broken songs I never sung

I wanna love you like I was supposed to
If you forgive me, I'll ride back to you

Come see the world,
It calls to you like the echoes of the cove above the tide
Just feel my face, it pulses with the love
Of your embrace

The sun sets down on the forest plain
Meadows of my innocence
To be alone is to be in pain
For my love, can I convince?

Blue mountains tower, across the clouded scene
You're my empire, my evergreen

Come see the world,
It calls to you like the leaves that fade to scarlet red
Please kiss my face, it flowers with the nectar
Of my disgrace
