Lightningpsych Francie Moon is a revelation! At times raw and untamed, at others times delicate and soulful, she pours her heart and soul into her music. This is a tremendous album with Adam Pumilia (bass) and Richie Samartin (drums) providing a powerful back up to Francie in laying down the grooves. Francie is also an ace guitar shredder too. Favorite track: Charmed.

muschiosauro Love it! Raw, untamed, deep garage rock with the energy of a runaway folk-psych-blues-fueled steam locomotive. Sometimes the locomotive slows down and melancholically contemplates the stars, where Francie's voice tries - in vain - to find some peace. But then it gets up and running again, puffing out smoke and disappearing into the woods.

Grow 03:41
If you give it a little time You get just what you need Down the road, then we unwind And get back on our feet And the creatures of the forest Don't worry about where to feed Just give it time and follow the signs Cause your trust is free Now the open road might be bold But how do we learn what we believe? A saving grace, a lasting taste A breath of eternity I wanna grow I wanna grow But I just don't know how I wanna go I wanna go But I just don't know how I hope all hope is not forgotten And we don't lose our place all along And the lost are not forsaken For the turns that they made wrong And God you can't be angry at satan Cause he's losing all along Pluck him outta my head And let me go to bed And put him where he belongs I wanna grow I wanna grow But I just don't know how I wanna go I wanna go But I just don't know how

One day I'll unwind my mind And travel through the rivers of my heart And trek the mountains of my long lost loves And the canyons of the pieces fallen apart I gave it all I could I gave it all I could and it was never enough I gave it all I could I gave it all I could and it was never enough One day I'll get rid of all my worries And let my soul just be A place for clouds to settle And a place for angels to sing And a place full of endless peace But for now I gotta live with me But for now I gotta live with me But for now I gotta live with me But for now I gave it all I could I gave it all I could and it was never enough I gave it all I could I gave it all I could and it was never enough One day I won't be so selfish One day I will think of you And turn back the hands of time And somehow make you mine again After all that I put you through But for now I gotta live with me But for now I gotta live with me But for now I gotta live with me But for now I gave it all I could I gave it all I could and it was never enough I gave it all I could I gave it all I could and it was never enough

Charmed 05:10
Sunrise, sunset We lay our heads down to rest Shut our eyes, our dreams unfold And tell us stories that we never told Listen closely my dear As my words they may Remind you of things lost today And though tomorrow's charms are shiny, yes It's today's gems, they are the best Come one, come all Right now Crawl, crawl To feel free Yeah, get up on your knees And let your ankles root up like trees When you stand taller, there's more to see When you stand taller, there's more to see When you stand taller, there's more to see When you stand taller, there's more to see And though tomorrow's charms are shiny, yes It's today's gems, they are the best

Walked Away 03:25
I couldn't stay so I walked away My driven ambition was clear as day Under the trees that bloom the month of May I walked away, I walked away I walked away I walked away Clear as day Where did you go when I saw you behind me? Where did you got when I saw you following me? I walked away I walked away Clear as day I slept with my eyes open Worked with my eyes shut I thought about you every morning 'til dusk Thought of the times we faced our worst I walked away 'cause I felt hurt I walked away I walked away Clear as day Where did you go when I saw you behind me? Where did you got when I saw you following me? I walked away I walked away Clear as day

Miss You 03:41
I miss you everyday Like the sun misses the rain And in my heart it's pain Like a bird without a wing Yeah, I miss you everyday It was a long time ago When together we started to grow And in my heart I know There's a long way to go I just didn't know I'd go alone You mean so much to me Like the breeze means to the trees And there was so much ease When it was just you and me Now I look for you in the leaves

Hey there West Virginia with the valley and the pines I opened myself to meet ya on that June sunrise And you really took me by a big surprise I never thought I'd ever look that deep in your eyes As the hills rolled on So did us We were together alone And together enough And together at home And together not rushed To be anything and everything that we can be As us It was a story book picture A tale so very tall No one would believe ya Except a giant above us all You really took me by a big surprise I never thought I'd ever look that deep in your eyes

Reasons 04:05
Take a look, whatchu see? I see around, everything I need, babe Count to two, maybe three Feel the blues inside of me, babe Four once more, feel the beat Move your body and move your feet, babe The here and now, yeah just be You be you, and I'll be me There's a reason We can see, yeah The clouds crossed over and the skies opened wide As wide as my heart and as big as my pride, babe I dance with them and I dance with the sun I dance with the ground and I dance with everyone, babe Move with the sky, I move with the Earth I plant my seed and I wait for my birth, babe I sing my song and I live for my dreams I dance all night 'til I fall to my knees There's a reason We can see, yeah

Johnny south bound wrote me a letter Said, "Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories" And ol' Jimmy picked up his guitar again Waiting for the music to breathe Nicole is back in school again, done workin' in the factories Workin' in the factories Jessie's in her house with her man A child she foresees So this is life What's before us What's behind us What's inside us But what's above us? Or below us? Or can show us the more? Momma's sellin' homes again She needs a dime, that woman needs a dime And poppa's out on the horse again Because he loves to ride And Dawn is back at home again And proud mama, a proud mama And Terry's back in town again But he ain't ever around So this is life What's before us What's behind us What's inside us But what's above us? Or below us? Or can show us the more? Jenny's at the doc again Her stomach's round, her stomach's so round Bradley's at the club again, waiting for the winter storms The boys are back in school again They love to learn, they love to learn And here I am at home again Staring at the wall So this is life What's before us What's behind us What's inside us But what's above us? Or below us? Or can show us the more?
