Ellis Paul

Ellis Paul (born Paul Plissey; January 14, 1965) is an American singer-songwriter and folk musician. Born in Aroostook County, Maine, Paul is a key figure in what has become known as the Boston school of songwriting, a literate, provocative and urbanely romantic folk-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990s. His pop music songs have appeared in movies and on television, bridging the gap between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. more »

All of my life
I've been tempted I've been torn
What's wrong and what's right
Since the day that I was born
And god knows when I was lonely
I was easily deceived
What do I want
What do I need

Knocking on wood
Leaves me standing in the rain
So misunderstood
God I've lost my way again
Through the darkness of old notions
It's such a pitiful reprieve
What do I want
What do I need

Freedom from the devil's chain
Freedom from temptation's reign
Freedom from the overwhelming
Feeling that evil never sleeps

I cross my heart
I am not the only one
And right from the start
Everything under the sun
It dies by some desire
And faith to some degree

I need to be free
