Vanessa Carlton

Vanessa Lee Carlton (born August 16, 1980) is an American singer-songwriter and musician. Upon completion of her education at the School of American Ballet, Carlton chose to pursue singing instead, performing in New York bars and clubs while attending university. Three months after recording a demo with producer Peter Zizzo, she signed with A&M Records. She began recording her album, which was initially unsuccessful until Ron Fair took over. Her debut single, "A Thousand Miles", reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2002. Her debut album, Be Not Nobody, followed and received platinum certification in the United States. Her subsequent albums, Harmonium (2004) and Heroes & Thieves (2007), failed to exceed the commercial success of the first. … more »

We scream and shout
And try to make it last
Though it didn't work out
I don't love you any less

My lover or friend
I won't ever tell
Our secrets safe
An unspoken citadel

And in these broken times
Well, it's so easy to forget
So I sing to remind
Upon my shoulder you can rest
'Cause I'll always give you my best

A sidewalk's path leads me to you
Though we don't look back
We hold on to a truth

And in these broken times
I promise I will not forget
Though you're not mine
Upon your shoulder I can rest
'Cause you always give me your best

It's like a promised kept
It's like you never left
It's like you never left


I know it's been so long
I can't ever seem to forget
All it takes is a song
And I could swear I hear your steps
Down the hall that goes up past
That leaves an ache
It's never left
'Cause I gave you my best

It's like you never left
It's like you never left

We scream and shout
And try to make it last
