Piper Hayes Toronto, Ontario

Finding truth beyond words, rhyme, and reason; delving deep where others don't go; unraveling the many threads of time...Piper sings a bewitching tune. Her voice creeps from a small steady note to a grand booming tone. Power and presence are her appeal, and strength the name of her game. She brings a new twist to the idea of authenticity. In performance she comes alive! ... more

Track Name: High and Dry
Oh there's a place in the rain
Far from hope, far from pain
Some might say it's where ya go beyond insane

Oh there's a hut in the wood
Nobody cares if you're good
That's the place right where I stood

But sometimes you turn
You find a way
To pull in the reins

Oh the moon shines at night
But it's far from bright
It's secrets ready to Ignite

Wading in the water
Well it's far from over
Your feet they just get colder

Heart stripped down to size
When you realize
That you're naked between the thighs

But sometimes you turn
You find a way
To pull in the reins

Oh the bit at the mouth
Frothing at the bait
You question am I too late

Wading in the water
Well it's far from over
Your feet they just get colder
Just get colder

Oh cause your demons they eat your insides
They attack from behind
And leave you going blind

Oh cause your demons they eat your insides
They attack from behind
And leave you high and dry

High and dry
High and dry
Oh yeah your demons they leave you high and dry

Oh yeah your demons they eat your insides
They attack from behind
And leave you high and dry
Track Name: Three Times
It was after you left
That it sunk in
The despair of saying goodbye

A little whole in my heart
It didn't make sense
The pain and joy that I felt inside

I said this couldn't be love
As reason suggested
When only three days had gone by

But I cried three times
I cried three times
I just wanted to see your eyes
I cried three times

It was a whirlwind affair
It felt so rare
As I'd never had this in my life

Comfortably sedated
It didn't feel aided
By the lies we bury inside

Easy and free
Everything I wanted it to be
You felt like a knight to my pride

So I cried three times
I cried three times
I just wanted to see your eyes
I cried three times

What would it be like
With you in my life
Halfway around the world
Well I'll never know

It's like you said
While lying in bed
All the feelings
Will just make you grow

Mostly embarrassed and sad
But the best I'd ever had
My true Feelings
I never did show

So I cried three times
I cried three times
I just wanted to see your eyes
I cried three times

Once when I left you
Once when you called
And once when I said goodbye

Afraid I'd never see you again
That we would just remain friends
And you'd be the last
To come my way

My biggest fear in life
Is I'll never look twice
And love won't
Ever stay

So I cried three times
I cried three times
I just wanted to see your eyes
I cried three times

Once when I left you
Once when you called
And once when I said goodbye
Track Name: Porcelain Finish
White and round
Clean and Bleached
A finish just like a dentist's teeth

Stained and brown
And full of sores
A mouth that's locked behind a door

One juxtapose the other
Fighting to discover

Lock the door
And hide the key
Nobody else but me
Lock the door and hide away
Nobody else has a say

One day goes by
And then the other
Much to my surprise
It's still not over

The porcelain finish
Is always the same
The porcelain finish
Is always the same
Finding a friend in an unknown plain
Always the same

Lower than the highest lows
Nothing here is on show

Lock the door
And hide the key
Nobody else but me
Lock the door and hide away
Nobody else has a say

The porcelain finish
Is always the same
Finding a friend in an unknown plain
The porcelain finish is always the same
Always the same
The porcelain finish it knows my name
Track Name: Long Way Home
Take this shirt off my back
Cause it's the last shirt I got
And know when I walk
It's the last way home

Down a Dusty Road
I walk the streets alone

I'm not asking you to follow
Or lead the way
Just take a chance
And a leap of faith

Down a dusty road
I walk the streets alone

Oh we think we have the answers
To a happy life
But control has a power
And it cuts like a knife

Down a dusty road
I walk the streets alone

Take this shirt off my back
Cause it's the last shirt I got
Track Name: Together
It starts with a little thought
Inside Your head
It grows to be a great big tree

Bet you thought it started out ok
But it didn't end up that way
It ended a great big mess

And once it's in the Earth
You've already given birth
You can't explain
How that feels

And no matter how hard you try
You start to realize
You can't go back to life before
You're now so much more

If you wanna go back
Then take yourself back
But don't take me with you
If you wanna go home
Then take yourself home
But I'm staying right here
So we're clear

What if somebody
Asked you today
Would you go back
And have your way

I know if someone
If they asked me
I'd think about what I'd loose
I don't know if I'd choose
But maybe you would choose
The past

If you wanna go back
Then take yourself back
But don't take me with you
If you wanna go home
Then take yourself home
But I'm staying right here
So we're clear

Cause if I've learned nothing
I'm trying to learn to trust myself
Even if that means
Being something new

So take me as I am today
Not the girl I was last May
That was just a scared little girl

I trust myself
I trust you
Do you, do you
Trust you

If you wanna go back
Then take yourself back
But don't take me with you
If you wanna go home
Then take yourself home
But I'm staying right here
So we're clear

Cause if I've learned nothing
I'm trying to learn to trust myself
Even if that means
Being something new

So take me as I am today
Not the girl I was last May
That was just a scared little girl

I'm not perfect
And you're not perfect
We are who we are
So can we please be
Who we are
Together
Or apart
Track Name: Fool
You fed me lies
That I could handle
Looked deep in my eyes
And melted me like a candle

At the end of the day
You got your way
And left me for a fool

Don't take me for a fool
Dont' take me for a fool
Don't take me for a fool

I walked away
And you didn't stop me
It ended that day
You walked away scott free

I would blame two
But I wish I had shamed you

Don't take me for a fool
Don't take me for a fool
Dont' take me for a fool

Don't take me for a fool
I'll no longer play it cool
Don't take me for a fool
Track Name: Does It Keep You Up At Night
When your day is long
And the road is rough
Have you had enough
Of this life

I can hear you inside my head
I can feel you wrapped around my neck
But are you out there waiting to be found
Are you out there making a sound

As the curtain falls
And the lights go out
Catch the wind in your hair
Wonder if I'm there

Do you wonder what would it be ilke
Does it keep you up at night
Does my memory keep you up at night

Standing there so tall
You can only fall
With no ground below
Leaves nowhere to go

Rise above
Rise above
Rise above
And find love

Does my memory keep you up at night
Did you give me up without a fight
Do you wonder what would it be like
Does my memory keep you up at night

When your day is long
And the road is rough
have you had enough of this life
Track Name: Pretty
I wanna be pretty
I wanna be rich
I wanna be so much more
Than things on a list

I wanna be kind
I wanna be smart
I wanna move beyond
Just taking part

And I wanna be hard
I wanna be soft
I wanna hold the whole world
Inside my heart

And I wanna be simple
I wanna be plain
I don't want anyone
Anyone else to take my name

I know I'll find my way
No matter what it takes
To get through the day

And I wanna be pretty
I wanna be rich
I wanna know who I am
And let that stick

I wanna be smooth
I wanna be slim
I wanna be
I wanna be

I wanna be pretty
I wanna be rich
I wanna be all the things
That make me fit

I wanna be me
With no restrain
I wanna hold my head high
And feel no pain

I wanna hold my breath
And feel no pain
No pain

And I wanna be
I wanna be

I wanna be pretty
I wanna be rich
I wanna be all the things I wanna be
And nothing less

I wanna be smart
I wanna be kind
I wanna taste all the things
That go on in my mind

And I wanna be
I wanna be
Pretty
