Shattered Glass - released 2017
D.O.B 2012
(Written & Produced by Michele Karmin

Watch what you say if what you say isn’t meant
For the weight of your words may bend your intent
Well, there I was and there she was coming up from behind
But who knew that she’d soon be the one to win your mind

Before it started out
It was on the ground
In pieces scattered ‘bout from the crash

Shattered Glass
Shattered Glass

I was beaming and dreaming and believing in life
Was as if the spring was thawing out my wintry paradise
It felt so nice while it melted, I felt more in every drop
But then the icicle fell like a dagger in my heart

Before it started out
It was falling down
And the tears made an icy splash

Like shattered glass
Like shattered glass

Can you believe I’ve done it again
A force awakened my heart while it was nearly dead
I should’ve known better
But something told me to let this one in
So I did, but somehow I drowned in the shallow end
I drowned before I realized I could swim
In shattered glass

So much for holding on to everything that you had said
Cause I know that all your words will never add up to what you meant
Dear God, I was holding on to every piece that I could save
But now I know I had to learn how to let all the pieces break

And shatter glass
Shatter Glass

shatter me / break me free / help me see / what is beneath / shatter me / break me free / help me see what is beneath…
Shatter me

Colors of a Tear - 2011
(Lyrics & Music by Michele Karmin
Music & Production by Tom Colontonio)


Breaking the mold
Finding a way to escape what I know
To a place so far from home

Breaking my mind
All the pieces falling like
Raindrops from the sky
Never know just what you’ll find

In a different light
The colors of the world
Will paint what you find
To the canvas of your life

So breathe and let it be
And you’ll see
Though you walk with blind eyes
The truth will set you free

Just forget your fears
You’re here
It’s time to take a chance
And learn to dance in the rain
Just let your spirit heal
Through the colors of a tear
As they bend through the light
Through the light
Through the light
Of the sun (Son)

The Weeds - 2012
D.O.B 2010
(Written by Michele Karmin
Produced by Michele Karmin & Tony Corelli
Mixed by Jamie Myerson)


We reap what we sow
So be careful of the things you let grow
Be good and let the good control
Before the weeds take over your soul

We're all in this game of life
So you can bet you better play your cards right
But if you want to cheat your way
Just know that there's a price you'll pay
Its all up to you to decide

Well I wouldn't call it luck
You only get what you put up
So if you choose to bring on pain
Just know that you may feel the same
You can run but you'll just get caught

Because we reap what we sow
So be careful of the things you let grow
Be good and let the good control
Before the weeds take over your soul

A lie is still a lie
Whether you paint it black or white
So when you feel your tongue is stuck
Say the truth or just shut up
And see how that changes your life

Well it’s a blessing and it’s a curse
Cause the things you do they can do you good
But they can also make you hurt
So be careful you know what they say
What goes around is gonna come right back around eventually

Cause we reap what we sow
So be careful of the things you let grow
Just be good and let the good control
Before the weeds take over your soul

Sweet Whiskey (unreleased)
D.O.B 2012
(Written & Produced by Michele Karmin)

Number nine it seems you’ve read my mind
Well, could you tell
The girl has been a bit deprived
Now step inside
Give me heat and I will bake the bread
And as we eat ill lay the crumbs leading to my bed

He spoke all the lines I fantasized and then
He kissed me like sweet whiskey mixed with heroine
He put on the show and I watched it all and then
Scottie rocked me like steroids in the heavens

Mr. Air I know you can’t be tamed
Its a shame though it adds fire to our game
Just for a moment let me harness you inside my reins
Cause the choke will add some growth to my frozen flame

He spoke all the lines I fantasized and then
He kissed me like sweet whiskey mixed with heroine
He put on the show and I watched it all and then
Scottie rocked me like steroids in the heavens

So long to girl who danced on her stage of innocence
She was holding on to the song that played
Up until the record skipped
God forbid he didn’t take the chance
Because God knows that she said
Hallelujah now whats your name
Oh I’ll sing you a sin

Hello Jesus please hide your eyes
From this web that I helped spin
The gates of the promised land have broken
And the serpent has bitten
Well a part of me enjoyed the feed
and still a part of me regrets
Yet... in memory of a sweet memory
I shall let that memory live

Yes I know Ive a habit to over think
Therefore I closed my eyes
and took another swig
Oh down I go
Through the rabbit hole of my dreams
David the Gnome was waiting for me
At his tree

He spoke all the lines I fantasized and then
He kissed me like sweet whiskey mixed with heroine
He put on the show I watched it all and then
Scottie rocked me like steroids in the heavens

He didn’t know that I wasn’t that bad
But I could tell that this was a dangerous man
Dear Lord please now can you understand
Im guilty drinking sweet whiskey with the devils best

Pulling on The String - 2012
D.O.B 2010
(Written by Michele Karmin
Produced by Michele Karmin & Tony Corelli
Mixed & Additional production by Jamie Myerson)


I had it but I lost it
Somewhere along the way
It was somewhere right in my pocket
But it fell through everything
I didn't, didn't see it coming
The tear that tore the seam
I just kept on running
Pulling on the string

Just look what you've done
You've made a mess of everything
Well u can't right all your wrongs
Just by pulling on the string
You had it but then u lost it
And your the only one to blame
It was somewhere right in your pocket
How could you let it get away

You see i had it but then I lost it
And I didn't even know
It was gone long before i realiZed
Exactly what had been done
I had it oh but I lost it now
Well now what should I do
It seems I've made it a habit
The things I love I lose

By holding on you've made a mess of everything
Well you can't right all of your wrongs
Just by pulling on the string
You had it but then you lost it
And your the only one to blame
It fell right, right through your pocket
It fell through everything

Oh ohh you're still unraveling
Ohh ohh cause you keep pulling on the string
Ohh ohh you're still unraveling
Ohh oh cause you keep pulling on the string

You see I had it but then I lost it
Somewhere along the way
It fell right through my pocket
Cause I kept pulling on the string

Love Is All We Need (unreleased)
D.O.B 2010
(Written & Produced by Michele Karmin)

I used to have a trusting heart
Until one day it fell apart
I used to think that I'd never leave
Until I met my reality

Id never thought that I'd be the one
To love so much that I'd let go
Choose to set a person free
So they could find what they needed

But love will make you turn around
When you're ready to walk out
And when you leave
Thats when you'll see
That you need it when you're gone
No matter where you are
Although its just one thing, love is all we need

So many nights you were off to dream
And stayed awake just to watch you sleep
With every raised breath I felt
My God, how I am blessed

And I held on as i thanked the Lord
For sending me all this love
Even times when I couldn't see it
You taught me it was all i needed

Because love will make you turn around
Just as your ready to walk out
And when you leave, thats when you'll see
That you need it when you're gone
No matter where you are
Although it's just one thing, love is all we need

Let Me Introduce Myself...Again - 2012
D.O.B 2008
(Written by Michele Karmin
Produced by Michele Karmin & Tony Corelli
Mixed & Additional Production by Jamie Myerson)


Silent eyes, in this room of emptiness
The walls even fall to doubt
I’m reading minds but she’s so hard to read
She doesn’t bleed from the inside out

And all these things we should have left unsaid
And so much of the could have been that never did
All I ever wanted was your happiness
Just let me introduce myself again

Well hope is blind
You’re crazy to give it up
but too wise to give it more
Beneath the signs
You realized you’ve been wasting more than your heart could afford

All these things we should have left unsaid
And so much of the could have been that never did
All I ever wanted was your happiness
Just let me introduce myself

And how can this be?
That the instant I walk in the room you turn
but keep looking back
We’re in too deep
But the fate of our knowing is not gonna change the way we act
How can this be?
That the instant I walk in the room you turn
but now you’re moving on?
We’re in too deep
But I guess it is best if we try not to know this at all

Just let me introduce myself again
Just let me introduce myself...
(repeat chorus)

Hello, hello
So nice to meet you
So nice to meet you... again

Whore Boy - 2012
D.O.B 2010
(Written by Michele Karmin
Produced by Michele Karmin & Tony Corelli
Mixed by Jamie Myerson)


I don't want your empty sex
I'd rather take nothin than regret
A night of useless lust
Mistaken for the thought
that you could be trusted

You wanted more boy
But you're a whore boy
You wanted more boy
You silly whore boy

And I don't want your dumb money
Cause the things that I need are free
And what I want you can't give back
So I'd rather masturbate
than give you that

I said Auf Wiedersehen
And no we won't meet again
I said Auf Wiedersehen
And no we can't stay friends

Cause all you silly whore boys
Think it's easy, so easy
But I'm a born-again virgin
And I don't want your diseases
Don't mistake me for a taxi
You're not riding in my back seat
I said that I
Don't want your empty...

Don't want your empty sex
So you better think again now
Before you bet your friends
That you'll get up to hit
Cause if you try ill break your stick

You wanted more boy
But you're a whore boy
And I need more boy
Than a silly whore boy
..and your empty, skanky
good for nothing...sex

Six Years - 2012
D.O.B 2009
(Written & Produced by Michele Karmin
Mixing, Sound Design & Additional Production by Jamie Myerson)


Six years have come by and gone
I feel alright it just seems wrong this way
Holding on to a photograph these colors bleed
And the dreams they just fade

And it holds me under and it pulls me under
And it keeps me under that wave
And I feel it stronger
and I know it more today

Six years have been so long
You never know just how they’re gonna change you
Holding on when nothing will
Holding on to the last thing you can’t save

Until it gives you up

And it holds you under and it pulls you under
And it keeps you under that wave
And then you feel it stronger
and you know it more today

Six years gone, gone away

It still tears you up

Cause it holds you under it still pulls you under
And it keeps you under that wave
And now you feel it stronger
And you know it so much more today

Then you did that day

That six years went away
Six years will never be the same

You’ve got to give into that change

Fade To The Stars - 2008
(Written by Michele Karmin
Produced by Michele Karmin & Steve Childs)


Don’t you know that it’s time to break this lie
But I can’t find the words to say my mind
I have looked in the places deep inside
But I can’t find what’s real

Till I’m healed till I know that I’ve gone so far
And I bleed on my own till I fade to the stars
Don’t you know that it’s hard to be so tough
When you’re losing what you’ve grown to love
There’s no protection from the shadows in the dark
If you don’t find the time

To be healed but i know thats its gone too far
And I bleed on my own till I fade to the stars

I know if you’re gonna throw your world away
It’s easier to do once you except the pain
And i know cause I fought it through every day
But i just want to close my eyes

Don’t you know that its time to break this lie
I have looked but I cant find

What’s mine and I’ve gone so far
Just to know where i belong
And you know that it wont be long
Until you lie awake and watch the stars

If your gonna throw your world away
Your better chance to live comes by chancing fate
And you know when i bleed I try to drain the pain
Cause my heart won’t make a compromise

Don’t you know that it’s time to break this lie
But i cant find the words

Until I’m healed till i know
That I’ve gone so far
I won’t be so alone once i fade to the stars

Happy Medium - 2008
D.O.B 2005
(Written & Produced by Michele Karmin
Piano by Nate Gonzales)


Its hard for me to get over the way
Things are today
I feel I can’t play the same
Cause the papers and the magazines
Are brainwashing
All who look in that glass book
they like to read

Where can I find a happy medium
I’m just not satisfied not tonight
It just seems so hard to be beautiful
When everyone’s wearing lies
They’re hypnotized
By this world of confusion, illusion
I just lost my mind
So where can I find a happy medium
To feel alive

Its hard for me to get over the thoughts
Of all I have lost and found
Just too late to mean a thing
It seems like you only get this with that
Its awful but fact
No one helps if they know they can’t help themselves

(chorus)

Cause just when you think its all over
All that you proved seems beyond the truth
And though you feel you had won
The ties come undone
To a lesson being learned

(chorus)

It’s hard for me to get over the way
Things are today
I know I can’t play the same
