Biography

Somewhere between Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" and The Clash's "London Calling" lies the music of Adam Trapani. A charismatic performer known as much for his playful sense of humor as he is for his modest, thoughtful lyrics, Adam Trapani is not an easy act to categorize. Adam’s rambunctious, carefree guitar playing generates a palpable energy that only his dynamic voice can maintain, while his penetrating lyrics remind listeners of Badly Drawn Boy and R.E.M.

Performing for crowds throughout the Southeast and the Rocky Mountains, Adam has proven himself as a captivating musician. His inspiring performances often involve audience participation, with Adam hosting impromptu dance contests and audience-wide hand-holding, and even turning himself into a human water gun. It's rare to see an Adam show and not come away with a story.

Lyrics

I Used to Travel Alone

Written By: Adam Trapani

used to travel alone, now I travel with no one
Now I travel with no one
I used to think I was sane now I know it was crazy
Now I know it was crazy
I used to think I was sane now I know it was crazy

I used to stand up and fight, now I fight to be peaceful
Now I fight to be peaceful
I used to think I was right, now I know I was wronging
And I know I was longing
Longing to be true in a world that's soaking through with confusion

Hey! I want to go home!

I used to shoot from the hip, now I shoot from the shoulder
Man, I guess I got older
I used to wish for the end, I just wanted it over
I just wanted it over
I used to wish for the end, Now I want to start over

Hey! I want to go home!

I used to believe in myself, I was led to believe
That I didn't need anything
Now I struggle to survive
And I've come to realize
I need everything

Hey! I want to go home!
