Peppa Lee 02:50
She came into town when I was 17 she was this quite girl. Even shy it seemed But we didn't need to talk, so we became best friends But she never took me home, never met her parents I heared rumors about the screems at night, about the broken bottles in countless fights I was curious about the scar above her left eye In retrospect it wasn't even the first sign Oh Peppa Lee, oh Peppa Lee, Where did you go Nobody seems to care at all, but I miss you so I've got a call from a friend late last night I've started running to your house, when I arrived Covered in blue light they carried out a corpse Such a relief it wasn't yours Oh Peppa Lee, oh Peppa Lee, Where did you go? Nobody seems to care at all, but I miss you so I hope you're safe now. I hope you'll find your peace I hope it feels like a victory. I hope... Oh, Peppa Lee

I can see the storm in her eyes Tired sunken in the backdrivers seat Where are you heading, where do you go A long pause. A look. Before the answeres come I never had a plan but go west But change doesn't happen until it hurts at last So last night I left what they called home Grabbed my bag and their money. Flew where I never felt welcome No I never, I never will go back No I never, I never will go back I dreamt of Portland, I dreamt of L.A. Never been there but it's better than staying here No, I don't think anyone will miss me back home I'm a lonesome soul for so long No I never, I never will go back No I never, I never will go back

Second Heart 04:05
It's been a long night, a long year Pour me a drink before I take of my mask I don't mind smiling all the time It's my heart I'm worried about When you turn away from your past When you walk another street When you hide behind your second heart You know it can never be the same Can you hear my second heart I know it's slightly out of synch Can you feel my second heart I know it will never heal again The night is darkest before dawn I'm glad I passed that point But I'm still waiting for the sun And for my heart to be calm again When you turn away from your past When you walk another street When you hide behind your second heart You know it will never be the same Can you hear my second heart I know it's slightly out of synch Can you feel my second heart I know it will never heal again

There is no place I would call home Since my house burned down I have wandered the earth But didn't settle down Since I have met you I feel so calm So dance, dance, dance with me Dance till the music is over Dance, dance, dance with me Cause we belong together When I was your age I thought I couldn't fall But now that I'm older I know there is no heart without scars There are times to heal the wounds And this time is now So dance, dance, dance with me Dance till the music is over Dance, dance, dance with me Cause we belong together

about

I met Peppa a few years back. I did a road trip from the east to the west coast. My camera was stolen in New York and I broke my smartphone a few days later. So I just had my pencil, notebook and guitar to capture the moments.
One evening a few hours from Colorado I sat down at a bar. Peppa worked there and we started a conversation and talked all night. She was funny and interested, but at the same time she seemed mysterious. Although she told a lot about herself, I couldn’t grasp her in total. This talk with Peppa is one of the encounters of this trip, which moved me most.
Especially the deep melancholy in her smile and voice is a vivid memory. It is the inspiration for so many lyrics, which try to capture and empathize this smile. Some of those lyrics evolved into songs. Songs which tell about the smile of Peppa Lee.
