Mystic Energy #newsong #thecranberries #lorijeanfinnila

Art speaks to us through writing. When I was studying I had to read into art. It's amazing the connection you make with it. Lets look at art history and see where it took me to write this song.  I started out with artwork, then Rebecca Campbell's mystic power, then I turned to The Cranberries, which is where I ended up.

"Seeing Myself Again" #newsonglyrics #lovesong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

I just wrote this song inspired by the new movie out called "Love Song." "Seeing Myself Again" Verse So many dusty, cobbly roads  I've walked on I've felt so all alone I came so far Just to see myself I'm seeing myself once again Chorus I'm seeing myself once again It feels so fresh and young and alive I didn't think that I could feel this But I know I can begin again Verse The road has been long The pain has been hard When I lost you I had a broken heart I couldn't see I couldn't feel I couldn't get past the days we spent I live alone I drive too far I talk to myself I ask why I see the stars I hear you call But I know it can only be heaven Chorus Verse I see myself as beauty now once again I think I can feel the warm sun on my skin I drink life with a new taste I appreciate  Chorus

The Ugly Woman #newsong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

I'm up tonight writing this. I guess I'm the artist I need to be and I have to stop kicking myself about it no matter who likes it, that way I don't hurt the ones I really love.  Verse Breathing is necessary Breathing is our privilege I sit in silence and contemplate Am I out of bounds How do I change this if I am Chorus Breathing is free Breathing is to strive But in what way do we breathe How do I make a woman not look so ugly Verse How do I know what I can do  When I'm up late at night  Thinking of all the things I have Is this wrong for me Chorus Verse I wonder my next move Not talking too long or loud I know I can't please everyone Bridge The act of a person  Is like an animal We have to strive  We have to be the artist To understand ourselves  Chorus
