Pain Killers

but i know that no painkillers make it go away
i tried them once before and it didn't work for me
work and there's no painkillers make it go away
if i tried to overdose it wouldn't bring no change
suns out on 95
and i'm not dead tonight

took exit 81
i felt like throwing up
i finally did the math on what i'd done
and my heart breaks for you but i got broken too
and i still want to be someone
and i know you want to fight but one day you'll be thankful
that i let you go

Here's another emotionally charged debut from another singer/songwriter, Lauren Pritchard. Her album, Wasted In Jackson, came out late last year, but I just came across it last month. Unlike the vulnerability of Laura Jansen (who I wrote about earlier this week), Pritchard sings with a gravely fire that strikes me as a mix between Fiona Apple and Grace Potter, somewhere along the lines of Joss Stone, with perhaps a smidge less soul tinge. Considering this is her debut, it shows a lot of spunk and assuredness.

Visit her website, her label Universal Republic Records, and become her friend on MySpace and Facebook.
