COLD SOUL by ©Karen Chisholm (BMI)
She’s a cold soul
Don’t you turn your back
She’s a cold soul
Her heart is pitch black

She’ll point her finger get into your head
She won’t stop ‘til you’re almost dead
Twist the truth get you so confused
She’ll drive you crazy while she plays her ruse
Barracuda in a high-heeled shoe
You can bet she’s keeping her eye on you

She’s a cold soul
Don’t you turn your back
She’s a cold soul
Her heart is pitch black

Dream taker and a scheme maker
She’s cold and calculating and real good at taking
She’s careful choosing the words she plans on using when she sets you up to take you down
You stand up but it’s no use ‘cause she knows how to play the victim too
She’ll cry to your friends who try to make amends before you know it she’s fooled them too

She’s a cold soul oh
She’s a cold soul oh
She’s a cold soul oh
Don’t look back

Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do

She’s a cold soul oh
She’s a cold soul oh
She’s a cold soul oh
Don’t look back
Her heart is pitch black
Snake in the grass
Pain in the ass

SEVENTEEN by ©Karen Chisholm (BMI)
Rex he was a race car driver
Velma she loved a fast machine
Rex he liked to get his hands dirty
Velma she tried to get them clean

Baby in the back and two on the way
Pushing toast at Holiday Inn trying to make it pay
Velma she loved the smell of gasoline
Rex he loved the smell of Seventeen
He loved the smell of Seventeen

French fries and Kool-aid with regret on the side
Velma tried to nap while the three babies cried
Rex he got a job forgot the racing scene
But Rex still raised some hell
‘Cause Rex he still craved the smell

Baby in the back and two on the way
Pushing toast at Holiday Inn trying to make it pay
Velma she loved the smell of gasoline
Rex he loved the smell of Seventeen
Yeah, Rex he loved the smell of Seventeen
He loved the smell of Seventeen

Naugahyde, dirty oil, sweat and beer
Rubber burnin’, pistons turnin’, gears and fears

Baby in the back and two on the way
Pushing toast at Holiday Inn trying to make it pay
Velma she loved the smell of gasoline
Rex he sure raised some hell

Baby in the back and two on the way
Pushing toast at Holiday Inn tryin’ to make it pay
Velma she loved the smell of gasoline
Rex he sure raised some hell
‘Cause Rex he sure loved the smell of Seventeen
He loved the smell of Seventeen
He was only Seventeen

LOVE’S ROAD by ©Karen Chisholm (BMI)
There’s an unfamiliar light cuttin’ through my window
Dancing in the dust stirrin’ up discontent in my soul
Damn these perceptions which way did love go?
Why don’t we follow Love’s Road?

There’s pain in every turn down apathy row
Make your own decisions, ha!
You just do what you’re told
Damn these traditions which way did freedom go?
Damn these traditions which way did freedom go?
Why don’t we follow freedom’s road?
Why don’t we follow freedom’s road?

There’s an unfamiliar song playin’ on the radio
Wind is whipping my hair
I’m tapping the wheel
Just driving north
Damn your good intentions which way did our love go?
Damn your good intentions which way did our love go?
Yeah, damn your good intentions tell me which way did our love go?

I’ll be damned I’ll be damned I’m gonna follow Love’s Road
I’ll be damned I’ll be damned I’m gonna follow Love’s Road
I’ll be damned I”ll be damned I’m gonna follow Love’s Road, ha!

HIDE ©Karen Chisholm (BMI)

You take the long way home
You read all the labels on the shelf
You drink when no one will know
You show when no one is left

You can’t run far enough away from yourself
You can’t climb high enough to free yourself
You can’t lie enough to fool yourself
Yet you try, you try to Hide yourself

Chase a wind full of demons
You can’t label all your feelin’
You can’t bluff these cards that fate is dealin’
You can’t find a deeper meanin’

You can’t run far enough away from yourself
You can’t climb high enough to free yourself
You can’t lie enough to fool yourself
Yet you try you try to Hide yourself

Turn and fight, Don’t you run tonight, Even if you die
Turn and fight, Don’t you run tonight, Even if you die
Turn and fight, Don’t you run tonight, Even if you die
You can’t hide, you can’t hide from yourself

NO WHERE ARIZONA ©Karen Chisholm (BMI)
Been too many years since I’ve seen your face
Not a day’s gone by I didn’t cry
I gave you everything thing I had to give but
You baby bled me dry

Walked around in this wilderness
Walked as far as I could
Now I’ve reached the end of the line and
Baby it feels so gooooood

So now it’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ and my heart is my heart is dry, dry, dry
My heart is dry, dry, dry

You didn’t know who you had
I didn’t know who I was and
Now we both do
You had your chance with me baby now look who’s the fool
Flippin’ through the trick of the day how’s it feel to have the trick turned on you?
You had ’em thinking it was all me, now they know it was you.

So now it’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ and my heart is my heart is dry, dry, dry
My heart is dry, dry, dry

No more cryin’ No more dyin’ No more tryin’ I’m through
No more cryin’ No more dyin’ No more lyin’ I’m through

So now it’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ in No Where Arizona
It’s rainin’ and my heart is my heart is my heart is my heart is dry

Description

Karen Chisholm fuses sultry silk with raw grit. From rhythmic rock and addictive pop to dark, sensual blues and soaring ballads, and sweet little ditties, she blurs genres as easily as she blends textures. Combining haunting, cinematic melodies, direct lyrics and an engaging voice — which draws comparisons from Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette and Feist to Janis Joplin, Regina Spektor and Jewel — she creates a powerful sound that lures new listeners daily.

Her third release and first rock album, Love’s Road, Chisholm confronts betrayal, champions freedom and finds deliverance — though she steps through fire to get there. “Love’s Road,” she says, “is the wind whipping my hair while I’m tapping the wheel and just getting the hell out of town as fast as I can.”

Love’s Road produced by Ramy Antoun long time Seal drummer, whose credits includes The Black Eyed Peas, Paul Oakenfold, Ed Kowalczyk, Pat Benatar, Matchstick Men, Crazy Beautiful, The OC, Warner Brothers, Hollywood Records, Universal Music, and opening for the Rolling Stones. Instrumentation on Love’s Road includes Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live house band), Sergio Andrade (Lifehouse), Brian Batch (Alpha Rev), violist Orhan Çelebi (Austin Opera), guitarist Jacob Hildebrand (Miranda Lambert, Deadman), cellist/composer Mark Ford, Michael Rey and his crew on horns and Clayton Corn (Pat Green, Jack Ingram) on Keys.

“My favorite track, ‘Seventeen’ was inspired by young love and my hell-raising, racecar-driving teenage daddy raising three kids on my mama’s back. Ramy really captured the 60s racing vibe I was looking for, and my performance felt inspired. I almost think someone snuck Sheryl Crow into the studio without introducing us. It gives me goose bumps. I am really proud and humbled to be able to work with Ramy,” says Chisholm.

I’ve gotten the pleasure of working with Karen on previous recordings as well as this new album. I’m blown away by how much she’s grown as an artist and songwriter. So happy to be a part of her journey! –– Ramy Antoun, Producer, Creative Artist Group
