about

Alisa Amador Music Boston, Massachusetts

Alisa Amador’s music is a synthesis of the many styles she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz, funk and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin music she grew up with. With a sound that NPR calls, “a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams,” her soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics, and syncopated rhythms, are likely to make you cry, laugh and dance all within one set. ... more

Track Name: Eventually
I lost my figure to the winter storms
ate too much, drank too much liquor, all to keep me warm.
What can you do when you love somebody and it’s gotten cold?
What can you do when you love somebody that you cannot hold?

Everything goes, eventually.
Everything flows out into the sea
Even the snow melts, eventually
Not any time soon, but eventually.
Not any time soon.

I lost my footing on that icy road
look, my skin’s bruising, but you wouldn’t know.
What can you do when you love somebody and it’s gotten cold?
What can you do when you love somebody that you cannot hold?

You will fade, eventually.
You will take off for that other sea.
And I won’t ache, eventually.
Not any time soon, but eventually.
Not any time soon.
Track Name: Never Seem To Last
It’s been a long, long time since I thought of you
It’s been a long, long time, like, a day or two
You’re always on my mind, don’t know what to do
It’s been a long, long time since I thought of you, oh.

I’m always lonely, it’s a part of me
I don’t need anybody’s help with that
You say that you want me, do anything for me
But, that ain’t the same as having my back.
No, no, no, no, no.

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve been at home
It’s been a long, long time all the plants have grown
It’s been a long, long time that I lived alone
It’s been a long, long time since I’ve been at home.

I’m always lonely, it’s a part of me
I don’t need anybody’s help with that
You say that you want me, do anything for me
But, that ain’t the same as having my back.
You seemed like a good one
How could I forget that every present turns to past?
I’m tired of the loves that never, never, never, never seem to last.

They never, never, never seem to last
They never, never, never seem to last

And now I find myself playin’ a different tune
My friends they think I’m sad – that ain’t true
I cried a single tear and now I’m through
‘Cause now I find myself playin’ a different tune

I’m always lonely, it’s a part of me
I don’t need anybody’s help with that
You say that you want me, do anything for me
But, that ain’t the same as having my back.
You seemed like a good one
How could I forget that every present turns to past?
I’m tired of the loves that never, never, never, never seem to last, oh.

When you call I won’t be home
I’m always alone
But, I’m never home
Because they never, never, never seem to last.
Track Name: Salt
Nothing tells like wasting my time again
Nothing tells like wanting to cry again
Nothing tells like when I think of you
What a lonely thing to do
Rubbing salt in the wound

Nothing tells like that look in your eye again
Nothing tells like that far away smile again
But, I can tell from my distant point of view
That there’s nothing we can do
But rub salt in the wound

Is there a metaphor for this kind of loss?
This I-once-knew-you-well kind of loss?
This you-look-at-me-but-you-don’t-see-me kind of loss?
Where every greeting feels like goodbye.

Nothing hurts like that voice in my head again
The cruelest words that break through my thickest skin
And nothing hurts like believing that it’s true
What a harmful thing to do
Rubbing salt in the wound

And is it evident that I’m kind of lost?
I question everything, and I’m kind of lost
I don’t know where I’m going I’m kind of lost
And every greeting feels like, it feels like, it feels like

Well, I never told you, because I didn’t know
With all of the tears I was letting you go
I guess you were never meant to stay for long
I opened my eyes and I closed them and you were gone.

Is there a metaphor for this kind of loss?
This I-once-knew-you-well kind of loss?
This you-look-at-me-but-you-don’t-see-me kind of loss?
Where every greeting feels like goodbye.
Track Name: For No Reason
For No Reason

My neighbors are little twins, little twins like I once was
They lie on the floor, and read stories of yore
Stories that I once read

But, now I sleep alone at night, sleep where we once used to lie
Awake for hours, telling stories
Not sleeping for no reason

If you look to the trees, you will find what you seek
You will find what you seek without searchin’
For, we break and we mend and we break then we end
When we break is it for no reason? No reason

One fine day, I met someone, and in those eyes I saw the sun
We lay on the leaves and shared childhood stories
That still circle ‘round my head

But, now, my back has gotten sore, and my heart cries out for more
For someone that can’t love me back
Can’t love me for no reason


If you look to the trees, you will find what you seek
You will find what you seek without searchin’
For, we break and we mend and we break then we end
When we break is it for no reason? No reason,

Ooh, ooh, oooh

If you look to the trees, you will find what you seek
You will find what you seek without searchin’
For, we break and we mend and we break then we end
When we break is it for no reason?
