about

Lisa Winter’s latest release “Comfort” offers interesting syncopation and swing with arresting lyrics that reveal inspiring snapshots of our lives. Each track engages the listener directly into the heart of the subject matter. This album is not a one-trick pony, as some tunes show a depth of seriousness and others have a quirky sense of humor. Lisa’s unique voice offers a range of styles from ballads to blues, with a sense of jazz unexpectedly appearing.

“Comfort” reveals songs you can sing to, dance to, cry and easily relate to. Lisa a singer-songwriter in the purest sense: capturing moods & stories, and translating them into songs that stay with you beyond the listening.

Track Name: Lean To The Left
LEAN TO THE LEFT
Lisa Winter

LEAN TO THE LEFT AND
SWING TO THE RIGHT
SWAY TO THE MUSIC INTO THE NIGHT
YOU GOT ME WONDERIN’
HOW I’VE LIVED WITHOUT YOUR LOVE

I THINK YOU’RE RIGHT
FOR THE MOMENT DEAR
HEARTACHE AGO I WASN’T SURE
I THINK YOUR’E RIGHT
IN THIS MOMENT DEAR
THE WAY YOU KISS ME
AND HOLD ME TIGHT

WHERE WOULD I BE
IF YOU HADN’T COME TO ME
I’D BE SHATTERED SOMEWHERE
TORN AND TATTERED I SWEAR
NOW I’M SOMEBODY NEW
ALL MY COLORS COME THROUGH
WITH YOU

LEAN TO THE LEFT AND
SWING TO THE RIGHT
SWAY TO THE MUSIC INTO THE NIGHT
YOU GOT ME WONDERIN’
HOW I’VE LIVED WITH OUT YOUR LOVE

I NEED YOUR RYTHYM,
YOU GOT THE SOUND
I NEED YOUR SWEET TOUCH TO
TURN ME AROUND
YOU GOT ME WONDERIN’
HOW I’VE LIVED WITHOUT YOUR LOVE

WHERE WOULD I BE
IF YOU HADN’T COME TO ME
I’D BE SHATTERED SOMEWHERE
TORN AND TATTERED I SWEAR
NOW I’M SOMEBODY NEW
ALL MY COLORS COME THROUGH WITH YOU
WITH YOU…WITH YOU

INTO THE NIGHT
Track Name: This World Is Not My Home
THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME Alfred E Brumley
Arranged by Lisa Winter

This world is not my home I'm just passin' through
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
The angels beckon me from heaven's open door
This world just ain't my home anymore

They're all expecting me and that's one thing I know
My savior pardoned me and now onward I go
I know he'll take me through
Though I am weak and poor
This world just ain't my home anymore

O Lord I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do
The angel's beckon me from heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore ,anymore

Just up in glory land we'll live eternally
The saints on every hand will shout the victory
Their song of sweetest praise
Drifts back from heaven's shore
This world just ain't my home anymore

O Lord I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do?
The angel's beckon me from heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore , anymore

Home, I'm going home
Home, I'm going home
Home, I'm going home
Track Name: Don't Go Drinking On An Empty Heart
DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART Lisa Winter

IT’S COOL WHEN IT’S GOING DOWN
A LITTLE CHILL BEFORE THE THAW
FIRST TRICKLES AT THE SEAMS
THEN IT STARTS TO SEEP AND FALL

WHAT’S BEEN HOLDING UP YOUR HEART
LOOKS LIKE IT’S HANGING BY A THREAD
LOVE’S HELIUM ESCAPED SOMEHOW
FALSE BRAVADO FEELS LIKE LEAD

DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART
IT’S A DISTILLERY OF REGRET
I KNOW YOU’RE STRUGGLING
AND THESE DAYS ARE HARD
LOVE HASN’T GIVEN UP ON YOU JUST YET
SHE’LL FIND A WAY
TO FAN THE FLAMES
DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART

YOU’VE BEEN STUMBLIN’ FOR A WHILE
IN A THOUSAND TINY WAYS
THOUGH BITTER DIFFICULT TO TRACE
YOU CAN TASTE IT JUST THE SAME
BUT IN THE MARROW OF YOUR SOUL
I KNOW THAT HOPE STILL REMAINS
YOU’RE STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW
CAN’T QUENCH A SORROW WITH A PAIN

THE HEART IS FOR LAUGHTER
FOR PRAYER EVEN AFTER
THE TEARS HAVE ALL GONE
FORGIVENESS MOVES ON…

DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART
IT’S A DISTILLERY OF REGRET
I KNOW YOU’RE STRUGGLING
AND THIS LIFE GET HARD
LOVE HASN’T GIVEN UP ON YOU JUST YET
SHE’LL FIND A WAY
TO FAN THE FLAMES
DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART
DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART
DON’T GO DRINKING ON AN EMPTY HEART

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH…
Track Name: Like No Other
LIKE NO OTHER Lisa Winter

You’d really love her
She’s like no other
She fills the spaces all around
With so much love that joy abounds
She’s empathetic
And finds her treasure
In lifting burdens with her smile
Until you think you’re miles high
She thinks she’s lucky but I know
She’s the most lovely giving soul
I always count my blessings twice
To know her smile, her love, her laugh, her touch

Her light is so bright
And there is no time
For anything that’s less than kind
You can see it in her eyes
She’s always willing
To help, jumps right in
She wouldn’t want to miss a thing
And I can’t help but wondering
If she’s an angel or a saint
I couldn’t ever really say
I want to be right by her side

To see her smile, her love, her laugh, her touch

I just wouldn’t want to let her down
Just to know her love is so profound
I would walk for miles
Just to see her smile
Oh the joy that rings
Every time she laughs it makes me sing

She’s really patient
Just think of Rachel
And when the hurricane comes in
She’s the first to draw you in
Enthusiastic?
She is fantastic!
She doesn’t doubt you will achieve
Her confidence makes you believe
I’ve never seen the face of fear
Just courage pouring out in cheer
There’s not one thing I wouldn’t try

When she smiles, and loves, and laughs, her touch
When she smiles, and loves, and laughs, her touch
Yeah yeah, yeah,….
Track Name: The One and Only
The One and Only Lisa Winter

My love I love you inside out, you know
Embrace this moment with no doubt because
If life’s a puzzle, you’re the missing piece
Well our love has blossomed from this seed
Of silly smiles to rivers deep you are
You’re the one and only only one for me

I love you truly
It’s clear to me
A thread divinely
Has woven our hearts
Eternally

Now you’re the place I rest my head
Your tenderness makes me forget about
Loneliness, a distant memory
With you the climb just ain’t so steep
Your kindness clears the path for me
You’re the one and only only one for me.

When love is real it’s right on time
Now I am yours and you are mine, mine, mine

Oh let’s pitch our tent and chart our course
Dance around the great outdoors
Singin’ you’re the one and only
You’re the one and only
You’re one and only only one for me
Track Name: Anthem of Love
ANTHEM OF LOVE Lisa Winter

I CAN HEAR YOUR VOICE CALLING ME
IN BETWEEN THE LINES AND ON THE BREEZE
THROUGH A CHILD’S EYES
AND IN MY DREAMS
YOUR STILL SMALL VOICE IS BECKONING

IN EVERY SUNSET, EVERY RAINDROP
EVERY BIRD IN THE SKY
EVEN THE TREETOPS CLAP THEIR HANDS IN REPLY
ALL CREATION SINGS HALLELUJAH
TO THE LORD UP ABOVE
I’LL JOIN THE CHORUS
IN THIS ANTHEM OF LOVE

OH, OH,
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME
YOU’RE ALL I NEED
YOU’RE ALL I SEE
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME

IN THE GARDEN OF YOUR GRACE IS FRAGRANT LOVE
SALVATION THAT I TASTE IS SWEETLY WON
BEARING ONLY PRAISE AND OIL OF JOY
IN THANKFULNESS I LIFT MY VOICE

IN THE MORNING, IN THE EVENING
IN THE RHYTHM OF LOVE
EVEN THE HEARTACHES, A TAPESTRY WITH YOUR TOUCH
ASTOUNDING WONDER OF YOUR MERCY
BRILLIANT COLORS ADORN
JOIN THE CHORUS IN THIS ANTHEM OF LOVE

OH, OH,
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME
YOU’RE ALL I NEED
YOU’RE ALL I SEE
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME

OH, OH,
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME
YOU’RE ALL I NEED
YOU’RE ALL I SEE
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME

YOU’RE ALL I NEED
YOU’RE ALL I SEE
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL TO ME
Track Name: Lilly and Martin
Martin and Lilly Lisa Winter

Lilly like to rider her motorcycle around
She got a tattoo of an angel on her thigh
She cruise to the mountaintop
Get a look from way high
You know the scenery look so majestic
From the sky

Oh yeah so ride, ride, ride you
To the valley
Find a friend and lend a hand
If you was in his shoes
You might be singin' the blues too
Don't shoot the wounded
Cause all you know, it could be you

Martin wallow loud down in the valley
He can't see nothin, not the forest
For the trees
He is a self-made man
But he leave everything to chance
He wait and wonder
Why he's empty underneath

Oh yeah, so rise , rise, rise you
From the valley
Throw your hands up to the sky
Don't waste your precious time
"Fore you cross that finish line
Just takes a minute
To get your ticket
Up to the sky

Well Lilly, she go flyin' down the mountain
And wouldn't you know here comes Martin
On a climb
You should've seen their eyes
When Lilly's cycle went a flyin'
Martin caught Lilly
Now he got himself a bride.

Oh yeah so
Track Name: Comfort
AS I WAS WATCHING ON THE FLATSCREEN
WHILE FLOODS OF WATER STOLE THE TOWNS
PEOPLE SWALLOWED UP BY FORCES
IN HORROR DREAMS IN SECONDS DIED
MY LENSE OF COMFORT JUST GOT SMALLER
I MISSED THE MEANING BY A MILE
THE PANORAMA DOSEN’T HIDE NEED
WITH A PSUNAMI STREAMING LIVE

SOME PEOPLE ONLY GET A FEW DAYS
OTHERS EPIC NOVEL LIVES
THE TEST OF TIME NOW HAS NEW MEANING
WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH ALL OF MINE?

I THINK OF STRANDED PEOPLE STARVING
WHILE BUYING GROCERIES AT THE STORE
AND ALL THIS COMFORT I’VE BEEN HOARDING WHILE
MY BROTHER BEGS, MY SISTER WHORES
I’VE BEEN A FOOL IN CALCULATING
TO THINK I’M OWED A BETTER LIFE
TO PURGE THIS GLUTTONY OF COMFORT
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO REALIZE?

IF THESE WORDS IN RED ARE REAL
THEN HE HAS NO HANDS BUT MINE
MY RESPONSE TO THIS WORLD
COULD THEN BE A LIVING SACRIFICE…
IS MY COMFORT WHERE
I DRAW THE LINE?

SOME PEOPLE ONLY GET A FEW DAYS
OTHERS EPIC NOVEL LIVES
THE TEST OF TIME NOW HAS NEW MEANING
WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH ALL OF MINE?

AND SO ANOTHER GOES ASUNDER
HOPING HEAVEN’S NET WILL CATCH
IT’S NOT THE DYING THAT I PONDER
MY QUESTION IS WHY I AM I LEFT?

SOME PEOPLE ONLY GET A FEW DAYS
OTHERS EPIC NOVEL LIVES
THE TEST OF TIME NOW HAS NEW MEANING
WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH ALL OF MINE?
WHAT WILL I DO WITH ALL OF MY TIME?
WITH ALL OF MY TIME?
Track Name: Carry Me
Carry Me Lisa Winter

I can feel you standing here
And I know you heard my prayer
To carry me if only for today
You’re the strength I need to stay
Faithful, thankful, and watchful to pray.
Humble, holy, and willing to change.
Oh Lord, carry me.

Sometime I sit and wonder how
I ever got this far
I think you must have carried me
When I deserved it least
The shackles of burdens
Aren’t weighing me down
How heavy the thorns must
Have felt on your brow
Oh Lord, carry me now

Carry me, for a while
Carry me, through evening tide
Carry me, oh and never let me go
You’re the only peace I’ve ever known

So often darkness presses in
And I respond in vain
Still you choose to pardon me
And carry all the blame
But the bondage of weakness
Can’t keep me in chains
How painful were the stakes
When pierced through your veins?
Oh Lord carry me

Carry me, for a while
Carry me through evening tide
Carry me, oh and never let me go
You’re the only peace
I’ve ever known

Carry me and let me stay
In your arms today
Carry me, and let me stay
In your arms today
Ooh..ooh carry me, carry me, carry me.
Track Name: Zoocrew Blues
ZOOCREW BLUES Lisa Winter

He thanks the Lord and kiss a pig
He got zoocrew blues with all these kids
Mr. Candyman is heading north to that money pit
The ballad of the potlicker
General with low sugar
He owns the country store
Out in Liberty, Michigan
He once was married to Ann Paige
But he wouldn't have it any other way

Horseheads and Ohio
Indiana and back to Michigan we go
We got the zoocrew blues
All 29 began with just these two
Zoocrew blues

City boy meets country girl
Dead eye Nancy huntin' squirrels
Met for the first time at a dance down in Devil's Lake
Now she's the one who we all love
A saint God sent from up above
And the zoocrew was begun by these two love doves
We'll love our life and build a dream
We'll build a cabin by a field and stream

Horseheads and Ohio
Indiana and back to Michigan we go
We got the zoocrew blues
All 29 began with just these two
Zoocrew Blues

Been five offspring and fifty years
26 spent mostly here
Sellin' cigarettes and liquor and some beer
Don't you think we've had enough
Let's sell the store and all this stuff
We got the zoocrew blues
And this is all too much
This ain't the place we want to die
Let's hit the road and see the world and drive to

Horseheads and Ohio
Indiana and back to Michigan we go
We got the zoocrew blues
All 29 began with just these two
Horseheads and Ohio
Indiana and back to Michigan we go
We got the zoocrew blues
All 29 began with just these two
Zoocrew blues, zoocrew blues
Zoocrew blues, zoocrew blues
Track Name: The Massachusetts Line
THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE Lisa Winter

40 MILES EAST OF ALBANY
THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
IT WASN’T FAR BEHIND
SHE FILTERED THROUGH THE FACTS
AND ALL THE FANTASIES
OF WHO SHE THOUGHT HE’D BE
AND WHO SHE’D REALLY SEEN

WITH CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON
AN IMPENDING STORM
BUT IF SHE TOOK ROUTE 9
WOULD BYPASS AND SAVE TIME
AND SHE THOUGHT OF ALL THE STORMS
SHE HAD HEADED FOR
THE WARNING SIGNS WERE THERE
BUT SHE CHOSE NOT TO CARE

SHE'D LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND
AT THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
TREAD BEYOND HER WORN AND TIRED TRAIL
BUT MILES CAN'T ERASE
THAT LOVE HAD TAKEN PLACE
THE REAR VIEW HAD REVEALED
THE TRUER TALE

A DETOUR UP AHEAD TOOK UNEXPECTED TURNS
THEN TRAVELED TO THE NORTH
RAN OUT ALONG THE COAST
WHERE UNDISCOVERED DREAMS
AND LANDSCAPES RARELY SEEN
HAD PAINTED A NEW HOPE
FOR HE HAD LOVED THE MOST

SHE THOUGHT HE’D DONE HER WRONG
SHE SEES ALL ALONG
SHE’D HELD HIM TO A FALSE REALITY
IT WASN’T REALLY FAIR
LOVING A MAN WHO WASN’T THERE
SHE’S THE ONE WHO OWES APOLOGIES

LOVE LEARNS TO DIG IN
WON’T LET THE BRIDGES BURN
LOVE FINDS REPRISE
AT EVERY BEND AND CURVE

SHE'D LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND
AT THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
TO TREAD BEYOND HER WORN AND TIRED TRAIL
BUT MILES CAN'T ERASE
THAT LOVE HAD TAKEN PLACE
THE REAR VIEW HAD REVEALED
THE TRUER TALE

40 MILES WEST TOWARD ALBANY
THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
IT WASN’T FAR BEHIND
Track Name: You Can Tell
YOU CAN TELL Lisa Winter

You can tell by the ring on her finger
That she only married for love
You can tell by the way he speaks of her
That she's still the one he's dreaming of
And the gift they possess
Is the present at rest
It is well, they're in love
You can tell

You can tell that they speak their own language
By a look or a touch that they share
Through the stories that tested their patience
Or their joy in an unanswered prayer
But the tales always end
With a humble amen
It is well, they're in love
You can tell

Love can define you,
Grafting in with grace
The scars that it's blind to
Heal and slowly fade away

He will tell you that he wasn't perfect
Repents of the pain that he caused
In her version she is quite certain
That the Lord had a plan and a call
And together they fall
On their knees through it all
For they believe it is well
You can tell

Every time the story ends
Each one's the other's hero then
They kiss again
And you can feel the tenderness
Like rolling thunder in your chest
As tears swell cause
You can tell

Love can define you
Grafting in with grace
The scars that it's blind to
Heal and slowly fade away

Love will refine you
Grafting in with grace
The scars that it's blind to
Heal and slowly fade away

It is well, love is good
There is hope you can tell
It is well, this is love
You can tell
Track Name: Roadkill Cafe
ROADKILL CAFE Lisa Winter

Someday I'd like to play
At the Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
I'm gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my home's in these strings anyway
Well, I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
and I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
Cause you know someday
I'd like play at the Roadkill Cafe

I was driving down the highway
On the 401, I was just about to Windsor
When I noticed something
To my right "Tonight Live Music"
At the Roadkill Cafe

So I caught up with the owner
Just my luck he's in
Hey, we got a cancellation
Maybe you'd fill in
But we'd only like your music
If you've got something to say
Well I do and so I said

You know I play to the rhythm
Of a different drum
But this melody's a catchin'
You can get you some
You can quote me verbatim
Looks like my someday has come

Someday I'm gonna to play
At the Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
I'm gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my home's in these strings anyway
Well, I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
And I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
Cause you know someday
I'd like play at the Roadkill Cafe

Like a steam locomotive
Gaining momentum
Like a finger on the trigger of a loaded gun
There ain't nothin' between us
This song and this strum
We are over the rainbow
We are having some fun
Cause it's the day
I get to play at that Roadkill Cafe

Someday I'd like to play
At the Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
Gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my heart's in these strings anyway
Well I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
And I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
And you know someday
I'm gonna play at the Roadkill Cafe

So I'm playin' at the cafe and
Imagine my surprise
When in walks a detective
And these paparazzi spies
Wantin' to know if I sing covers
Of some other famous guys

Well it's a fine ultimatum to sing or die
And if you speak my language
You are welcome to ride
To deliver the message
That my someday has arrived
(don't you know)

Someday I'd like to play
At that Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
I'm gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my home's in these strings anyway
Well I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
And I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
Cause you know someday
I'm gonna play at the Roadkill Cafe

So they changed the name last summer
To the alibi
You can show up incognito
Play your music live
Seems the sheriff hunt musicians
Wanted dead or alive

And that's the story of the day
I got to play at the
Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
