Lauren Pritchard is what you call “The Full Package”. She has the looks, she has a KILLER voice (very few artists are capable of delivering a live performance as good as hers in One By One), but most importantly- she’s a real musician who crafts songs that are catchy but not dumbed down for the masses. Quite similar to Adele, she has that pop/soul vibe but also her own unique edge. In short: awesome. So why haven’t you heard of her? Who the hell knows. Hopefully she’ll get the recognition she deserves. Till then, thanks to Jeremy C. for the tip. Check her (music) out:

When The Night Kills The Day

Lyrics

Oh, I’m no temptress
But I’m no angel either
And it feels good to be a stranger
No-one can judge me
I’m like the new outsider
Guess I should welcome this new change

Come and take a seat, let’s talk it over
I don’t want to keep you in the dark

Go on ahead and bring me the roses
It’s almost time for me to be going
I’m so afraid that I might be led astray
Nothing can save me when the night kills the day

You think I’m crazy
You think I made a big mistake
Who am I to question fate

I don’t want to have to cut you loose but
I don’t want to make a sacrifice

Go on ahead and bring me the roses
It’s almost time for me to be going
I’m so afraid that I might be led astray

How will I know to pull on the ropes and
It doesn’t seem like anything’s over
Nothing can save me when the night kills the day
Here comes the night it’s taking me over
Here comes the night it’s taking me over

Go on ahead and bring me the roses
It’s almost time for me to be going
I’m so afraid that I might be led astray
How will I know to pull on the ropes and
It doesn’t seem like anything’s over

Nothing can save me when the night kills the day.

Lyrics

I woke up this morning
I grabbed at your face
I don’t see what should be bruises
I’ve been giving it to you too straight

You’re getting kinda used to this
Like any day
You still got a peace about you
So why do we take the hard way?

Why, why, why on earth
Would you wish that away
‘Cause I think I know you by now
And I know you’ll stay

And I won’t worry about tomorrow
Like I have today
We were both face down
And one by one got up and walked away.

I think I’m worthless
But you’re not so sure
You keep saying you’re crazy about me
But I know you’re crazy that’s all

Why, why, why on earth
Would you wish that away
‘Cause I think I know you by now
And I know you’ll stay

And I won’t worry about tomorrow
Like I have today
We were both face down
And one by one got up and walked away.

I walked in this evening
Thank God we didn’t burn this place down

Why, why, why on earth
Would you wish that away
‘Cause I think I know you by now
And I know you’ll stay

And I won’t worry about tomorrow
Like I have today
We were both face down
And one by one got up and walked away.
