BandPopSinger/Songwriter

I like writing synthpop music; '80s lyrical sophistication with a modern sound. My music is an experience, not meant for just listening or dancing, but for telling stories and revealing my thought process.

Biography

I grew up in the '90s teen pop phase, so that tends to be my "guilty pleasure" inspiration. I'm also incredibly inspired by synthpop legends Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Erasure, and Trevor Horn. I got started in songwriting and composition when I was in my early teens, trying to sort through the exclusion, embarrassment, and wide range of emotions that puberty and middle school have to offer. My adolescent pain is mostly the reason why I don't sound like every other singer/songwriter. I go for harsher, more dramatic stories. I do compose for piano, but my songs are primarily electronic-based. The cold, unforgiving sound of electronics and altered vocals reflects ideas I convey in my songs. I now draw influences from Imogen Heap, Depeche Mode, Vanessa Carlton, Daft Punk, and Rodney Jerkins. My songwriting style stems from Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos, No Doubt, Gotye, Charlie Midnight.

Lyrics

No More

Written By: Lucas Morin

I know I want you.
I love the way you messed me up.
See I’m spineless
With psycho-obsessive love.
Yeah, I know that you’re taken.
I promise I will give it up.
So back away from me
‘Cos we’ve both had enough.
I’ll go.

No more fighting.
No more waiting.
No more wishing.
No more saying
I-I-I love you.
I-I-I love you.
No more crying.
No more txting.
No obsessing.
I’ll get a-away from you,
A-away from you.

See, I’m spineless.
When I see you, I melt.
I can fix it.
But I need you and no one else.
Too much emotion.
I’ll fight this stubborn crush.
But my heart’s not so tough.
When will I have enough?
I’ll go…

No more fighting.
No more waiting.
No more wishing.
No more saying
I-I-I love you.
I-I-I love you.
No more crying.
No more txting.
No obsessing.
I’ll get a-away from you,
A-away from you.

Why can’t we just try?
‘Cos this is not enough.
C’mon, just pass me by
So I can give you up.
I swear I’ll go!

No more fighting.
No more waiting.
No more wishing.
No more saying
I-I-I love you.
I-I-I love you.
No more crying.
No more txting.
No obsessing.
I’ll get a-away from you,
A-away from you.
