Biography

“Sarah Cagianese built her musical foundation by playing classical violin in orchestra for almost 10 years. She taught herself acoustic guitar at age 14, and used it as a tool to transform her love for pop, indie and folk music into song. Songwriting seemed like the perfect outlet for Sarah’s musical energy. She recorded a demo at 15 which featured members of the Ataris and Joshua, and has since expanded her music. Sarah has developed her songwriting into a genuine organic sound which is complemented by her strikingly beautiful voice. Her live performances are intimate and real. Sarah’s music is raw, emotional, and honest.”

Lyrics

Break Down Your Walls

Written By: Sarah Cagianese

Break down your walls
I wanna see what you're made of
I wanna know what consumes you
How much space do I take up?

I still wanna hear what the summer has to say
But if it's no good, I'll ask Autumn anyway
If we can't find ourselves,
Let winter figure it out.

She's the queen of hearts, off with his head.
She falls apart, that's what they said.
But she don't mean to ruin, what's the ruin in the question?
Is there ruin is the question?

So today was just another way for you to tell me that
This isn't like all the other nights you stay awake thinking about nothing.
Is this something new?
I'd like to think so, I'd really like to think so baby.

She's the queen of hearts, off with his head.
She falls apart, that's what they said.
But she don't mean to ruin, what's the ruin in the question?
Is there ruin is the question?

Asking questions all the time,
I lack the answers in my hands.
I need to touch the truth in wine.
I need to know who I am.
Who am I?

She's the queen of hearts,
she falls apart.

Demise

Written By: Sarah Cagianese

I can feel your eyes
wandering away from me
I can feel the demise
We let miles ruin our dreams

What is it that you want? (what do you want baby?)
Why do you string me along? (you tie me in knots)
You think that I'm blind
There's not much I can do,
That's not true, there's just nothing to you

I wanted to show you that we could be
something more than just good friends
I wanted to know you intimately.

Let's just stop pretending because

I, I don't know what I'm proving
I, I don't know who we're fooling
I, I am so sick of this routine.
Do you know what I mean?

Why am I stranded so far away?
Transitional phone calls don't make up your face
Distance is bitter and I knew you wouldn't mind
We're stuck inside winter, transcending deep time.

I wanted to show you that we could be
something more than just good friends
I wanted to know you intimately.

Let's just stop pretending because

I, I don't know what I'm proving
I, I don't know who we're fooling
I, I am so sick of this routine
Do you know what I mean?

I can feel your eyes wandering away.

Those Eyes

Written By: Sarah Cagianese

You've got those eyes that make me break down inside
And when you blink, I sink into another place
Void of this confidence, void of this confidence

I decided to come over pretty late around 1
but your door was locked, so I knocked and woke everyone
You stumbled out, and I crumbled into your arms
But my old friend, but my old friend

I'm still in love
I'm still in love
I'm still in love with your eyes.

We drank our thoughts for a while back at your apartment
Pulling memories from each glass back to where we started
When we first met, back when I still knew nothing
But my old friend, but my old friend
I'm still in love with your eyes

I'm still in love
I'm still in love
I'm still in love with your eyes.

When I saw the sun wake, I realized it was time to leave
This night would haunt me like a faint forgotten melody
But it came too soon, and I left too quickly
But my old friend, but my old friend
I'm still in love with you

I'm still in love
I'm still in love
I'm still in love with your eyes.

Set List

My sets are usually two hours long. I have over 100 songs. I usually play all originals but sometimes I'll throw in a pop cover like Radiohead or Destiny's Child.
I can usually alter my sets based on the audience.
