Charmaine's Names Los Angeles, California

Charmaine has been crooning for insatiable fans since 2009, never quite remembering the names of the band members, who don't really exist most of the time.
Described as "Inescapable!" Charmaine's Names tours North America as often as possible, and soon Europe, so check out the website for calendar updates under the link "Plan on it" Feel free to contact me with any requests/questions.

Track Name: Widow (demo)
I was married to god, but I killed him.
Cause I prayed with my hands folding on my penis.
Now I don't pray at all, so I started to believe in myself.

(Oooah)
I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a strong widow
(Oooah)
I'm a widow . . . . . . .

I was married to you without your knowledge
Devoted my life to loving you, constantly
Now you're dead to me, or so you tell me, so I love myself in the mirror

(Oooah)
I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a lonely widow
(Oooah)
I'm a widow . . . . . . .

I don't know. I don't know what to do without
Someone. Someone I can lose howbout
We get together until you die! Literally.

(Oooah)
I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm a widow I'm an intentional widow
(Oooah)

[banter, introductions]

I don't know. I don't know what to do without
Someone. Someone I can lose.
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh hello i'm a widow.

I want to be your widow!!
Track Name: Don't Let It Pass Me By (demo)
A bus comes once an hour
And I can't turn my neck
I'm all alone out here
And my phone is dead (and it's the last bus)

Blood's running down my back
And I don't know where else (and I don't know the time)
Time slowly passes, but no bus is
Don't let it pass me by!

Don't let it pass me by
Don't let it pass me by
Don't let it pass me by
Don't let it pass me by!

Got a bagel with my last cent
And I got just one token
Skater kids don't seem to notice
The bloody state I'm in!
A zombie is locked in and walks towards me
And I don't know this yet (but he knows)
He knows I'm at the wrong bus stop
Don't let him pass me by

Don't let him pass me by
Don't let him pass me by
Don't let him pass me by
Don't let him pass me by!

oh no
don't let him go

I got myself dealt a coup de grâce
Cause no one talks about sports, anymore.
A healthier man than me, or the zombie
Is walking towards us, to wait for the bus
He avoids my intense stare
And talks about the big game, with the zombie
Well I got on the bus without a scratch (hooray!)
To add to my many wounds
Track Name: Paranoid (demo)
Paranoid
Darling I am Paranoid
Paranoid
Paranoid, darlin'
Paranoid

I figure that I must be dumb
And everyone I know has been paid off
To make me feel that I'm ok
To watch out for my well being

But I don't know how I feel about that
That there's someone watching over my life
With money to spend on all of my friends
But no cash for me

Cause I'm poor
Darling I am poor
Paranoid
Poor, and
Paranoid

You say that we've already met
But darlin' honestly, I plumb forget
You know my face from the file photograph
And when you saw it it made you laugh

Alzheimer's
I must be developin' Alzheimer's
Poverty
Paranoia, and now
Alzheimer's

But I know just how I feel about you
You're the only one that I wanna do
You're the only one that I wanna do
Oh did I just repeat myself?

Has everybody heard what I've
Been quietly thinking to myself?
What does it make you feel about me?
Why don't I have the same power as you?

Well, I guess that I'm lucky
I don't need to know, I'm just lucky
To think critically
Let bygones be, and to
Be with you

Cause I know just
(Darlin')
I know just
(Darlin')
Paranoid
Darlin', you are
Paranoid
Track Name: Baby (demo)
If you want to love somebody
Then you've got to learn their name
No one loves you if you're not trying
yeah yeah yeah

If you want to make me happy
Then don't call me by my name
Call me dumb dumb call me boring
yeah yeah yeah

For a minute there, I almost believed you
But
Nothing hurts
Nothing hurts
Nothing hurts more
Than a low blow
From someone who knows you

If you want to drive me crazy
Let me smell you can conceive
Can this daby have a baby?
yeah yeah well maybe

And if you want to have that baby
Then there is a price to pay
No one lives if no one's dying
yeah yeah yeah

For a minute there, you made me feel a little younger
But
Nothing works
Nothing works
Nothing works when you're feeling old
Now I'm feeling older

And no one helps
No one helps
No one helps when you're
Feeling low
And you oughta know from
Experience
Track Name: Arizona (demo)
Arizona's nice this time of year, or so I think
I dreamed it once
It was a homoerotic dream
About a friend who moved
Away

What's the difference between my neighbor and me?
I choose dark blue, dark grey, and black
He chooses turquoise, brown, and pink

I care about humans
He cares about his peeps
Had I never been with you I would be just like him

- - - - - - -

I could've moved to Arizona
Went to grad school
And been a rocket scientist
Working from home
And married a
Stocking model
Who loves me
But my brother
My brother
Would still outshine me
Even more than before
And I'd feel guilty
When he'd come to visit my desert
And my beautiful wife
Who still loves me
And worries about
My past
And she comforts me
And shoots my enemies
Whom I'm not aware of
With her boyfriend's gun
Whom I'm aware of
Track Name: Meghan (demo)
Get your life in order
Pay your debts
Exact justice
Will be left behind

Break for the border
They'll never let you go now

Made your peace
Exact justice
Or be left to hang

Break for the border
They'll never let you live now

Meghan has spoken.
