about

Free upload of Digital Tracks once you buy the physical album. I am proud of this little EP, I think you will like it just fine.

With lyrics that “cut to the bone” (SLC Weekly) and “just a great, great voice” (Peter Mayer), Sarah’s songs are getting noticed. They won her a slot on 2010’s Cayamo Cruise and the mainstage at Folks Fest 2008. Telluride, Kerrville, Mountain New Song, Sisters: you name it, she’s been a finalist. Marketa Irglova of The Swell Season says of Sarah's live performance, "I was inspired, so touched by her music and by her energy on stage with the band as well as with the audience. A lovely memory I will cherish.” Sample has also shared stages with Darrell Scott, Marketa Irglova of The Swell Season, Melissa Ferrick, Willy Porter, Peter Himmelman, Mark Stuart/Stacey Earle, Edie Carey, and more, winning new and devoted listeners each time.

Track Name: Born to Fly
I am a bird, up in a cage
I watch the world go by each day
Yeah, I got wings, I've never seen them fly
It's overrated, plus I'm scared of heights

Then there's a feeling
Not quite sure where it comes from
But it starts my heart beating
It wells from deep inside saying
"You were born to fly"


In the house where I live
Maggie is the kid
But she's the adult as far as I can tell
Cause every night, her parents fight
As if she can't hear them yell
She stares at her plate
Wishes for an escape
From invisible bars that hold her



Then there's a feeling
Not quite sure where it comes from
But it starts my heart beating
It wells from deep inside saying
"Maggie, you were born to fly"



I may never feel wind on my wings
May never see how blue oceans can be
But I've learned while watching Maggie grow
Maybe freedom isn't somewhere you go
But it's a feeling inside, kind of like your flying
A smile or a song, a safe place to go
When everything goes wrong

Then there's a feeling
Not quite sure where it comes from
But it starts my heart beating
It wells from deep inside saying
We were born to fly"
Track Name: Mercy Me
Thought I knew this road by heart
after all I could walk it even in the dark
I knew all the signs and where to stop
so I still do not know where I got lost

oh mercy me
oh mercy me

When nothing goes the way that you plan
and every word that falls feels like a reprimand
your not a child but your legs barely stand
will this love hold?

oh mercy me
oh mercy me
oh have mercy on me
show me the way

(instrumental bridge)

had it mapped out in my mind
back to Monterey in the summertime
but summers here and the roads are still closed
I feel distance aching in my bones
oh mercy me
oh mercy me
oh have mercy on me
show me the way
Track Name: Get Caught
Saw a boy catch a fish with his bare hands
no hooks, no strings
made me think of mama saying "girl you better slow down" so someone can catch a hold of me
I wish I could
Chorus:
Cause I am a stone that keeps on rolling
A storm that keeps on snowing
I've got to keep on going
Wish I could stop...Long enough to get caught

I've been, lured in
by hooks so bright and shiny
but every time my heart gets hung on the line, so trust does not come easy
I wish it would
(Chorus)

The boys in my town don't stick around once they get what they are after
my mothers history won't repeat on me, to have someone leave her
maybe somewhere down the road there will be someone who will hold me still...and stay

Saw a boy catch a fish with his bare hands and then he put it right back down
he laughed as it swam away right before I asked "hey, you want to walk me back to town?"
Maybe I could

We are all stones that keep on rolling
Storms that keep on snowing
We got to keep on going till there is reason to stop...and let ourselves get caught
Track Name: Good Life
i was 16 years old and in a red dress
when you first saw me walk across the gym floor
I felt your eyes on me l must confess
i'd never burned like that before

we knew our love was lucky
so we got married on friday the 13th
in the stone church in bloomfield ky
all dressed up I felt like your queen


and we dont' live like they do in the magazines
but your a good man
and i'm a good wife
and its a good life

You wanted to fight for what you believed in
They said "We're sorry but we can't use you son"
your weak lungs stopped you from leaving
but that day I felt a different war was won

we never got to go to paris
there is always debt to pay on the farm/land
but our children saw the world for us
and sent postcards from Rome to the rio grand


and we dont' live like they do in the magazines
but your a good man
and i'm a good wife
and its a good life

you were in that hospital bed
you were calling out my name
the last words that you said to me
"i love you dearly"
you were a good man
i was a good wife
Track Name: Used to You
I've gotten used to you
the way my name slides off your lips
i've gotten used to you
the way your hands rest upon my hips

with all the changes that are going on
everyday a new hit song
and bad news keeps blaring on
I could use someone that I'm used to

I've gotten used to me
the way the cold and I just disagree
I've gotten used to me
how I scare so easily

with all the changes that are going on
everyday a new hit song
and bad news keeps blaring on
I could use someone that I'm used to

Every spin and pulse and breath
pushes all we know out to the edge
nothing can last no matter what we do
still I need that love, just like I used to

I've gotten used to us
know my way round with my eyes closed in the dark
still bruise my shins against new corners of your heart
