about

susanna rose Rochester, New York

Hi! I'm a singer-songwriter from Rochester, NY. I'm inspired by our long winters; they challenge us and force us to spend a lot of contemplative time inside. During the coldest winter on record, I wrote the songs that became Snowbound. Tim Avery, music booker at the Bug Jar, calls them, "Haunting melodies draped over brooding lyrical bones." Thank you for listening. ... more

Track Name: Working Girl
I'm so tired when I get home everyday
That it's all I can do not to sleep right away

Well I went to school like they said that I should
And I got a job like they said I would

But as you get older tell me how
You hang onto what you truly care about

Oh, I want to go home
Where the wind blows
And I'm not in an office every day
I can't live this way

Oh, I want to go home
Where the struggle is
Where you have to fight to survive
So at least you know you're alive

It's time to go
Because I'm going crazy here in my troubled mind
I need natural light
I need loving at night
I need a passionate life

Can you hear me asking
Can you hear me asking
Can you hear me asking
Track Name: Separate Ways
Lately I've had some unsettling dreams
And when I wake up there's no one next to me
We've gone separate ways
separate ways
separate ways

Oh

And you called me just the other day
As the years pass you get further away
We went separate ways
separate ways
separate ways

Oh

But before I met you I already knew
Loving's part of life and losing too
We all go separate ways
separate ways
separate ways

And it's ok

oh
Track Name: Old Broken Heart
The marriage of the man I used to love
I imagine it
What will I wear
Who will be there
Though I haven't got the invitation yet

How will it be
How will it feel
How will I deal with my old broken heart

I knew this was coming
But that doesn't make it easy
for me

I knew I couldn't have you
And I never meant to love you
But I do

The day I met the man I used to love
I remember it
How he was kind
His eyes met mine
Though I didn't know that he was taken yet

And over time
How hard I tried
To hide my old broken heart

I knew this was coming
But that doesn't make it easy
for me

I knew I couldn't have you
And I never meant to love you
But I do

Life without the man I used to love
I'm living it
And it's all right
Most of the time
Even though I know he'll never be mine

I'm growing up
I'm growing old
Time to let go of my old broken heart

I knew this was coming
But that doesn't make it easy
for me

I knew I couldn't have you
And I never meant to love you
But I do

Oh
Track Name: Snowbound
It's a cold night out there
So come on in
And let's pretend
We don't know how this ends, we don't know how this ends

You can play my guitar
Like we're old friends
We're making jokes
Like we don't know how this ends, we don't know how this ends

But when I wake up I'll wish I
Knew you well enough to say what's on my mind

So hit the road traveling music man
I wonder if you'll ever wish you could see me again

And the next day
You're a ghost
In my house

I'm desperately looking
For something else
to think about

Cuz now I'm older every day
Starts to seem the same
And we all know how this ends
We all know how this ends

And when I woke up I wished I
Knew you well enough to say what's on my mind

So hit the road traveling music man
I wonder if you'll ever wish you could see me again

And while you're out there playing shows in the world
I'll be here, I'll be snowbound.
Track Name: Song to Myself
Girl, what are you so afraid of
Why do you keep running away from
Wherever you are

Why don't you stay in one place for once
So you can finally get somewhere

Oh, I gotta tell you
Something I don't think you want to hear

Oh, you brought it all on yourself
You built all the walls that need to come down

Girl, what are you so afraid of
Why do you keep running away from
Wherever you are

Girl, what are you doing
Don't sit around and wait for anyone else to tell you what to do
You're on your own

Oh, I wrote this song to myself
But I'm playing it for you
Because of all the struggles we both go through

Oh, this is a song to myself
But I wonder if you recognize anyone else

Girl, what are you so afraid of
Why do you keep running away from
Wherever you are

Girl, what are you doing
Don't sit around and wait for anyone else to tell you what to do
You're on your own
Track Name: Lullaby
If the sky could speak what would it say
I tried to catch it but it floated away

And if the moon could cry how would it stop
Before the surface got all dried up

Let the darkness in
Don't be afraid of it, my dear

And if the corn grows
How high will it be before it knows

And though you're walking slow
someday you'll get where you're trying to go

Let the darkness in
Don't be afraid of it, my dear

Someday you'll die and so will I
You can't have life without the night

So goodnight, my dear
Sleep tight
Track Name: Ancient History
My brothers in the backseat, country going by
Stick your head out the window, you feel like you'll never die

We'd listen to John Denver on those long car rides
Since we last drove down south it's been such a long time

There's something back there I'll never understand
These memories are full of ghosts from another land

And we drove down a dirt road to an old farmhouse
My great-grandma, she came running out

We sat on the porch drinking lemonade
After that night I never saw her again

There's something back there I'll never understand
These memories are full of ghosts from another land

The older I get the more I wish I knew
But up here in the north, you see, I've grown my own roots

But sometimes my brothers and I, we reminisce
Of the family if we had known, maybe we would have missed

There's something back there I'll never understand
These memories are full of ghosts from another land
Track Name: Benediction
Don't fear that the good times won't last
Because you know of course they can't
And on the road to becoming who you are
You'll get lost because it's hard

But don't forget that you are blessed
Whatever happens, keep saying yes

And though your fears are justified
You've got to keep on living your life
And though you might die before you say everything that you need to say
You've got to start speaking anyway

And don't forget that you are blessed
Whatever happens, keep saying yes

May you be at peace
May you be at peace with yourself
May you be at peace
