Heather Laveaux

BandJazzSinger/Songwriter

Who is Heather Laveaux? Simply put: A sparkling enigma wrapped in fishnets & sarcasm. My music is sultry, confessional, and intimate - with a kick (like 22-year old scotch. Neat.) It's a new lounge that borrows elements from blues, pop, and jazz - sprinkled with a little gospel, for good measure.

Biography

My love for music has grown exponentially over the years and remains the most powerful link to memories of people and places along my journey.
No matter how blissful the memory, or heart-wrenching the event in my life; there is at least one song that captured that emotion and immediately transports me to that exact moment in time. As soon as I hear the first few notes of a party anthem, the swell of a power ballad, requisite sappy love song, or the resounding refrain of a great drinking song; I'm there - when or wherever "there" may be. Although I am a huge movie buff and have watched an inordinate amount of television and film, nothing compares to the imagery evoked by really great music. Having a wide vocal range (more than three octaves) allows me to slip between multiple singing styles and genres and portray a large number of characters. The greatest character to play, however, is myself. I prefer an intimate lounge setting to make the audience feel like it's actually a private conversation, for no one but themselves.

Lyrics

Mornin'

Written By: Heather Laveaux

When I'm all alone, and the sun goes to bed

And I lie here wondering

Wondering where you are

I can't stop thinking 'bout every word you said

So tell me something, sugar…Why're you playing with my head?

Will you be here in the morning?

Lyin' here by my side?

Or will you creep out without warning

Before my teardrops have dried?

When we're here alone, it's always the same

You only call me "baby"

And never say my name

Now when the lights go out, baby

I'm gonna be a tiger you can't tame

So tell me something, baby … How many others play this game?

Where will you be in the morning?

Will you be right by her side?

Or just creep out without warning

Before her teardrops have dried?

And when you tell her that you love her

Does she know that you lied?

Where will you be in the morning

After her love for you has died?

Now you're all alone, lonely in bed

And I bet you're thinking

About everything I said

Until you find another baby

To play games with instead

What will you do in the morning … To stop those voices in your head?

And where will you be in the morning?

Where will you be in the morning?

Will you be with her in the morning?

Will you be with me in the morning?

You're never here in the morning

Anything

Written By: Heather Laveaux

Don't look at my face
Don't ask me why
I know you're afraid
I've got something to hide

Between you and me
I can no longer get behind
The lies I tell you every day
When I say "nothing's wrong"

And when we're alone
You offer me your soul
But you're not the one
Holding the keys to my heart

Then I close my eyes
Pretending this is real
But no matter how hard I try
It's his face I see

You'll do anything, anything at all
You'll do anything to try to make me fall
And no matter what I say or do
I could never make you see
That I'll do anything to have him here with me

Don't look for answers
Hidden in plain sight
Ignoring the signs
Even a blind man can see

Between you and me
I can no longer get behind
The lies I tell you every day
Even though I know it's wrong

You'll do anything, anything at all
You'll do anything to try to make me fall
And no matter what I say or do
I could never make you see
That I'll do anything to have him here with me
Oh I'll do anything…anything at all

Just lie to your face
Pretending that everything's fine
Biding my time
Caught up in this lie

Cuz the truth may be hard, so hard to say
But you'll just have to do until he's here to stay

Oh I'll do anything, anything at all
Yes, I'll do anything until I make him fall
And I'll do everything, baby can't you see?
That I'll do anything (anything) to bring him home to me (anything)
I'll do anything (anything at all)
I'll do anything…anything at all

Never

Written By: Heather Laveaux

I'll never be the girl you wanted

I'll never be the girl I should

I'll never be there for you, baby

Cuz I'm just not good at being good

I'll never be there in the morning

Never tell you all I should

Never love you the way you needed

Because, baby, I'm just not good at being good

I'll never be the one you wanted

Could never be that good to you

Would never tell you all those sweet things

That a good girl would know to do

Never gonna be the one you wanted

Just can't be that good to you

I'll never be the girl you think I should

Never be good at being good

Never change my ways for you

Never gonna settle down for good

And I wouldn't want to even if I could

Never wanna be good at being good
