"Everything is working together: the vocal, which is exceptional, the melody, the production, everything. This is all so seamless and instinctive, with everything just following the vibe, and pushing it forward, like trapping a wild spirit. I would buy this. And, I would play it a lot."
- Taxi Music review of Paulina's song "Stay"

- Rod O'Riley, Orange County coordinator for Songsalive

"Now for those of you out there in the indie music world who dont believe that your hard work can and will eventually pay off pay close attention to the flowing success of Paulina Logan.

"Singer/Songwriter Paulina Logan is one of the new voices of indie music. Her sweet tunes, fun lyrics, and gentle voice certainly make her a sensational act not to miss."

Wallflower
Lyrics & music by Paulina Logan

Some may say I can’t go out and play
To this I say okay
You can’t go and share what you know
And promise me this way

I want to go somewhere where I can breathe
And everything is so much easier than it seems
Before I wake up and realize
It wasn’t because of you I missed the sunrise

I want to tell you
You don’t know me at all
You just think you do
You just think you do

Is anyone home
Because I’m feeling kind of lonely
Heartbreak is normalcy around here
I’d better get used to it quickly

How do you know how strong you are until you break
I’m sure for someone else this is nothing
I always seem to make a big deal out of nothing

I want to tell you
You don’t know me at all
You just think you do
You just think you do

I want to tell you
You don’t know me at all
You just think you do
You just think you do

Too Far Gone

Written By: Paulina Logan

Too Far Gone
Lyrics & music by Paulina Logan

What is the reason
Why are you gone
I see the seasons change
When you tag along
You’ve always tried so hard
You’ve always been so strong

You can’t watch the world through a window
Don’t know why but that’s what I am told
I guess someday you’ll peek through the curtains
And suddenly realize you’ve grown old

The more I try, the more I hurry
The more I miss, the more I see
The more I worry
The more I follow through
The more I see through you

You can’t watch the world through a window
I don’t know why but that’s what I have always been told
Well, I guess someday you’ll peek through those curtains
And suddenly you’ll realize you’ve grown old

I’m too far gone
Too far gone
Away from you
Don’t you fear
I will pull through
I always do

Fly Away

Written By: Paulina Logan

Fly Away
Lyrics & music by Paulina Logan

If I could have you for myself
We’d go where there is no one else
Let me leave this place with you
To find something better, something new

We’ll fly away, find the sky again
Don’t want to stay, leave my heart alone to mend
We’ll fly away

And I know you are all that you seem
Because I’m well aware of what you dream
And I know what you say is true
Even though, or maybe because it’s all so new

We’ll fly away, find the sky again
Don’t want to stay, leave my heart alone to mend
We’ll fly away

So many things I want you to know
So many thoughts I’ve traveled alone
But now I fly

We’ll fly away, find the sky again
Don’t want to stay, leave my heart alone to mend
We’ll fly away

Now we are forever together
We will fly no matter the weather
And when it rains, you’ll be all that I see
And when it pours, you’ll be the only one for me

We’ll fly away
We’ll fly away
We’ll fly away
We’ll fly away

Stay

Written By: Paulina Logan


Stay
Lyrics & music by Paulina Logan

Problems, we’ve all faced problems before
And I don’t want to face them no more
Fear, we’ve all seen fear before
And I don’t want to see it no more

Come to me
Learn to be free

I stay completely still, too afraid to move
I wish I could call you, but I’ve got too much to prove

Come teach me
Be ready

So the sun moves on, and I am left with night
I can see much better, the end is now in sight

Always be here
Stay near
Always be here
Stay

Letter

Written By: Paulina Logan

Letter
Lyrics & music by Paulina Logan

There is nothing on TV that I much want to see
So I think I will spend my time better
Turned around and you were gone
Don’t know what went wrong
I’ll sit down here and write you a letter

There is so much to say
I’ve lost all of my words today
And I don’t know how or when
Just wanted to be adored
I live my life by the sword
I’ll die by the ballpoint pen

I’m trying so hard to be brave
I’m trying too hard to behave

Don’t know what tomorrow brings
Joy or sadness or other things
I guess we’ll wait and see
I know what I hope for
Do I dare to dream for more
You’ll be back here with me

I’m trying so hard to be strong
I’m trying too hard to get along

The more I have time for me
The more my soul has to dream
I don’t want you back after all
I wasn’t enough before but
I don’t need you anymore
I can catch myself when I fall

I’m trying so hard not to lose
But I know now I can choose
I’m trying so hard not to lose
But I know now I can choose

Disturbing Behavior

Written By: Paulina Logan

Lyrics & music by Paulina Logan

You are the type
Never ever shy
Lean on me
Because you cannot see

You disturb me with your behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior
You disturb me with your behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior

You think you’re fly
Your head is up in the sky
You hold the key
To everyone’s jealousy

You disturb me with your behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior
You disturb me with your behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior

Deep into the night
You are still a pretty sight
You know it’s true
And how to be so cruel

Well, my oh my
Don’t you ever cry
You should lean on me
If you still cannot see

You disturb me with your behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior
You disturb me with your behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior
You’ve got some disturbing behavior

Forever

Written By: Paulina Logan

It’s not that hard to sit here, all comfortable and numb
It’s certainly easier than talking to someone
Can I, can I, can I stay here forever

I’m not the bravest girl that you could really meet
And I am much too wicked to be thought of as that sweet
And sometimes when I’m scared I don’t soldier on
Because even when I know I’m right I admit to being wrong
Will I, will I, will I stay here forever

It seems like I have been through all of this before
And somehow I am thinking that by now I should know more
Every day that ends with me staring at the wall
Is before another morning of me waiting for that call
And I, and I, and I’ll be here forever
And I, and I, and I’ll be here forever
Until I change for the better
I’ll be here forever

L.A.

Written By: Paulina Logan

Drive around Pasadena
Just want to take a picture of a rose
Drive around Pasadena
Find out what everyone around here knows
Go on to Santa Monica
Spend the day at the beach
Go on to Santa Monica
Just want to see what I can see

Take my time, everything’s fine
In L.A. I think I want to stay
I think I want to stay

See the stars in Burbank
Sneak into a studio
See the stars in Burbank
I just want to know what they all seem to know
See the sights in Hollywood
Jump into the swimming pool
See the sights in Hollywood
Just want to break every single rule

Take my time, everything’s fine
In L.A. I think I want to stay
I think I want to stay

Oh and I roll my window down
To prove that I finally feel safe in this town
I keep it down

I’ve got myself a room
It’s got four walls and a tile floor
I’ve got myself a room
Someday I’ll have a hell of a lot more

Take my time, everything’s fine
In L.A. I think I want to stay
I think I want to stay

Write You As Song

Written By: Paulina Logan

You, with your corduroy boots
Your scuffed up shoes
You, with your leather jacket
And role that you choose
The show doesn’t end
Until the light descends
And I can’t wait to get you home again

I will lay you down
I will lay you down
I will lay you down
And write you as song

I have only one wish to make
To see the sun rise before it breaks
The sky is clear
But things can change
I’ll never fear what time can rearrange

I will lay you down
I will lay you down
I will lay you down
And write you as song

You’re so charming
It’s alarming, you’re so right
You can find me
You can keep me if you try

I will lay you down
I will lay you down
I will lay you down
And write you as song

Shut the Door

Written By: Paulina Logan

Shut the door when you leave
Don’t have time for your pleas
Your excuses and abuses are the same to me

You always want to know more
You always want to see
I hate to be the one to tell you
You already know more than me
I don’t ask too many questions
Lies follow so easily
I learn by watching
Have you found what you want from me

Shut the door when you leave
Don’t have time for your pleas
Your excuses and abuses are the same to me

If I’m not what you expected
I don’t have to apologize
I’m not the one who fed you
All of those lies
And you’re the one who thinks you’re everything
As if that evens the score
Please don’t tell me what I owe you
You owe me far more

Shut the door when you leave
Don’t have time for your pleas
Your excuses and abuses are the same to me

My heart is on my sleeve
I wear it so well
Time will be the one to tell on me

Shut the door when you leave
Don’t have time for your pleas
Your excuses and abuses are the same to me

Lovely

Written By: Paulina Logan

I’m getting older
You still haven’t shown
I don’t want to be stuck here
Growing up all alone
I’m still all alone

Outside the wind is still now
And the windowpane is cold
Everybody hurries by
Each hand has one to hold
I’m still here, getting old

I’m trying, I’m trying, I’m trying
To be lovely
So you’ll love me

If there are no mistakes
And every road leads to truth
I’ll learn these lessons well each time
If the lessons lead to you
I just want you

I’m trying, I’m trying, I’m trying
To be lovely
So you’ll love me

Someday you’ll see a better version of me

For you I would follow anywhere
If there was space for me
And search to find out what you need
And listen so closely
I’ll listen, just tell me

I’m trying, I’m trying, I’m trying
To be lovely
So you’ll love me
Could you love me
