Biography

FREE ALBUM! - Spread it like the plague!
http://www.sean-fournier.com/ohmy

Sean Fournier is a singer/songwriter from Milford, Connecticut. He taught himself how to play the guitar at the age of 17 and began writing songs soon after that. With a diverse sound from song to song, it might be hard to classify Sean's music, but he feels he has an acoustic/rock/pop/folk style.

Today, Sean continues to write and record his own music. With the new arrival of his newest release, Oh My, Sean concentrates on the promotion of this new FREE 6-track album.

Sean feels many people can relate to his music because he sings about the things many people are feeling or have felt at one point in their lives. He hopes that people will fall in love with the honesty of his music. When he sings his songs, he aims to stir something inside his audience and put words to a feeling that they previously couldn't describe. He enjoys playing live because he loves connecting with his audience. It gives him purpose and it drives him to work harder and make himself better. Sean Fournier's goal is to share his music with the world.

Lyrics

Broken Stereo (Acoustic Version)

Written By: Sean Fournier

Why do you look so glum?
Are you breaking
behind the smile that I know you're faking?
It is no surprise. I see it in your eyes.
And they just don't lie.

If your life was a broken stereo,
I'd be music to your ears
and your fears would be drowned in my audio.
You don't hear me though.
And I'd shed light on your worst-case scenario.
When you're crawling through the dark,
my spark would light the way back home.
You don't see me though.

And we could be so good.

Why do you look so glum?
Where you weeping
and letting go of dreams that you know you should be keeping?
'Cause once you let them go, they're gone. (So long)
But I can help you hold on.

If your life was a broken stereo,
I'd be music to your ears
and your fears would be drowned in my audio.
You don't hear me though.
And I'd shed light on your worst-case scenario.
When you're crawling through the dark,
my spark would light the way back home.
You don't see me though.

And we could be so good.

I'm in your vicinity, but you do not consider me.
Met you once or twice, but you probably don't remember me
'cause I go undiscovered. You confuse me for another.
I make faces in your faceless crowd.
And I've been screaming out loud.

If your life was a broken stereo,
I'd be music to your ears
and your fears would be drowned in my audio.
You don't hear me though.
And I'd shed light on your worst-case scenario.
When you're crawling through the dark,
my spark would light the way back home.
You don't see me though.

And we could be so good.

Another Like You (Piano Version)

Written By: Sean Fournier

She’s got a face that makes you lose your place, yeah, when you’re reading in your chair.
She’s got a laugh the girls would kill to have, yeah, simply ‘cause it’s so contagious.
In time I’ve come to realize

I will never find another like you.
Oh, it’s true.
No matter what I do.
I could search the world until I turn blue,
But baby, what’s the use?
There ain’t no one like you.

She’s got a smile that just goes on for miles and miles like an endless summer
and when she’s gone, the whole world crashes down on me.
Excuse me while I run for cover.
In time I’ve come to realize

I will never find another like you.
Oh, it’s true.
No matter what I do.
I could search the world until I turn blue,
But baby, what’s the use?
There ain’t no one like you.

All my life my heart’s been stranded.
On my sleeve it has been branded.
I could search the whole world over
and still walk home so empty-handed.
Take the world that I’ve been tossed in,
but leave the eyes that I’ve been lost in
‘cause I believe that they have helped me see

I will never find another like you.
Oh, it’s true.
No matter what I do.
I could search the world until I turn blue,
But baby, what’s the use?
There ain’t no one like you.

Falling For You (Piano Version)

Written By: Sean Fournier

You left home the other night
I wont see you for a couple days
but I still leave on all the lights
and all your stuff is still in place
where you left it.

Now, you turned me into a wreck.
I swear I hear you coming through that door
but every time I go to check
you're not there and I swear not to fall for that no more.

Oh my God, could this be?
Is love finally tripping me?
I'm falling for you.
And if I die before I wake
the dreams of you were my escape
I'm falling for you.

A TV lights an empty room
that shines upon me
just laying in my bed
as every memory of you
all night long, since you've been gone
is running through my head

Oh my God, could this be?
Is love finally tripping me?
I'm falling for you.
And if I die before I wake
the dreams of you were my escape
I'm falling for you.

Oh, can't seem to get you off my mind
Oh, no mater how I try and try
Oh, every time I blink my eyes
all I see is you

Oh my God, could this be?
Is love finally tripping me?
I'm falling for you.
And if I die before I wake
the dreams of you were my escape
I'm falling for you.

Put the World On Stop (Piano Version)

Written By: Sean Fournier

This is a true confession
of a man that lost his mind.
A real regression
when it's you that you left behind,
but now I'm moving. Now I'm moving. Now I'm moving.

It's a weird position.
It's a matter you can't contain.
A self-repression
when your soul wants to hop the train,
but now we're moving. Now we're moving.
Now we're moving on.

Oh my God I put the world on stop.
Somehow I've got to add to something.
One time before the curtain drops
I'm alright. I'm alright.

This is a true confession
of a man that lost his mind.
A minor question
to leave and never look behind
and now I’m moving. Now I’m moving.
Now I’m moving
on and on and on.

Oh my God I put the world on stop.
Somehow I've got to add to something.
One time before the curtain drops
I'm alright. I'm alright.

What do you mean I lost my mind?
This ain't no game. No.
What do you mean I lost my mind?
I just can't let go.

Oh my God I put the world on stop.
Somehow I've got to add to something.
One time before the curtain drops
I'm alright. I'm alright.

Goodbye (Piano Version)

Written By: Sean Fournier

There's a reason for my teachings
even though I can't explain.
More than a dream that you are reaching.
More than a laugh
that shadows all the pain.

A special meaning in the thorn of dreams.
In the garden
where a thought can blind me.
I am lost here where it never gleams.
Where I found that I scream so blindly.

Until I rise up! Fall down!
Is this the reason
that I can't feel the ground?
Am I waiting for my tomorrow
or should I say goodbye?

Am I walking with a purpose?
Because I feel the same
and as I wait for my dreams to surface
as I wait I'm drowning in the rain.

Just when I thought that it was over
I lost my grip and I hit the wall.
A simple dream that I tripped over.
Now I have to wake up to my fall.

Until I rise up! Fall down!
Is this the reason
that I can't feel the ground?
Am I waiting for my tomorrow
or should I say goodbye?

Holding the Hand of the Hurricane

Written By: Sean Fournier

Back from the winter that felt like a grave.
I was just waiting for my heart to cave.
And all of my saviors, all of my saints
watched as life left me dying again.

I'm gonna live forever as long as I feel your rain
dancing around me like I'm holding the hand of the hurricane.

I was just reaching for something to say
speaking a language no words can contain.
So I throw my heart in the hurricane
just to show you what I can't explain.

I'm gonna live forever as long as I feel your rain
dancing around me like I'm holding the hand of the hurricane.
