Biography

La Capital is Adam Carroll's stage name and music venture. He just finished up his EP, "City Lights," and is getting ready to bring out the LP in the next few months.

Adam fits within the singer/songwriter and folk genres, drawing from his early musical influences such as Paul Simon and Johny Cash. But he reaches into a pocket of Damien Rice and Pete Yorn for a blend of up-to-date and classic music style and honest story telling.

Adam grew up in Guatemala City until the age of 12; a place they call "la capital." His roots remain in Latin America, but his extensive traveling has brought him cultural influences from North America and Europe, as well. Always influenced by urban settings of the likes of Denver, Boston, London and NYC, he decided on the name La Capital - the capital city.

Lyrics

Baby I Know

Written By: M. Adam Carroll

Baby I know
It’s getting late
It’s time to go
We’re making mistakes

Baby I know
It’s time to say
To build a home
But I’m nervous today

Without you
Without you

Hello again
How does it go?
Time in the end
Turns us all cold

Hello old friend
How are the kids?
It was different back then
Everything I did

Was for you
Was for you

Baby I know
This wasn’t right
It wasn't gold
But we tried to fight

Baby I know
I'm way too late
But I touch to show
What I can’t say

To you
To you

She

Written By: M. Adam Carroll

She loves the piano and surprises
Likes the beach and sunrises
When she lays next to the sea…

She hates the crowds and likes to read
She makes her bed next to me
When no one’s there to see…

I’m obsessed with your fantasy
I paint pictures of you and me
Won’t you hold my hand in my dreams?
Where you fit perfectly

I love the color of her eyes
Like when she laughs and when she cries
In front of me…

I hate the spotlight and the stage
Every night I try to make her stay
When she gets up to leave…

I’m obsessed with your fantasy
I paint pictures of you and me
This is the way I see you in my dreams
Where you fit perfectly

My Love

Written By: M. Adam Carroll

My love is innocent
And it will follow you
Cuz you are heaven sent
I will care for you

It is like the first time
Every time
But I won’t wear you thin
Baby, I’m not like him

Lock the door
Let’s kick them out
There’s nothing more
To figure out

It’s on the shelf
So you can see
There’s no one else
It’s only me

I’m all you get
With no regrets
Drink me stiff
But don’t forget

My love is innocent
It will follow you
Others came and went
But I will adore you

And I will make you mine
Every time
But I will let you win
Baby I'm not like him

Lock the door
Let’s kick them out
There’s nothing more
To figure out

It’s on the shelf
So you can see
There’s no one else
It’s only me

I’m all you get
With no regrets
Drink me stiff
But don’t forget
