about

Susan Buchanan Grand Rapids, Michigan

I'm a singer/songwriter from Michigan. I've played piano since I was 9. I have spent the last 2 years writing and recording my album " Mr. Crazy & Other Tales" Produced by Glenn Brown at GBP.
I wrote this record about the many journeys my life has taken. It was a long hard road to bring it to you, but well worth it.

Track Name: Mend
The heart can mend
like a broken branch
The heart will bend
and we learn to love again

I asked you once
would you do it all again
and you said to me
we take love where we can

Show me some good faith
Some hard earned devotion
Show me we can mend

Show me some good faith
Some hard earned devotion
Show me we can mend

And the heart will mend
like a broken branch
The heart can bend
and we learn to love again
Track Name: Satellite Blue
Satellite Blue

Satellite Blue so good to see you
you fill the dark
capture my heart
Satellite blue I can see
you belong to Free
but part of me

We'll find a place
a place where can be
We’ll find a place
a place where we can
a place where we can
breathe

Satellite Blue- still in love with you
you turn away
but hear every song I play
Satellite blue- here in my room
the world fades away
but only if you stay

We'll find a place
a place where can be
We’ll find a place
a place where we can
a place where we can
breathe
breathe

I lay down for you
all that I feel
I’d give everything I own
if we
were real


We'll find a place
a place where can be
We’ll find a place
a place where we can
a place where we can
breathe
breathe
Track Name: PostCard
POST CARD
Heard the new today you’d be in town
came as no surprise that you might call
like a photograph that says it all
But for all the times you stood in the lights
and for all the dreams, I set aside
You don’t have to feel so bad
You don’t have to feel so sad
You still have me.

You don’t have to call and and say it’s late
they’ll be another place and time
you were just passing through my town
( I know)

but for all the distance, we've come to share
and for all the forgiveness we can bear
You don’t have to feel so bad
you don't have to feel so sad

For all the years we played in the lights
and all the songs... we’ll leave behind

You don’t have to feel so bad
you don't have to feel so sad
You don’t have to feel so bad
you still have
me
Track Name: The Piano
1920 she a factory girl
a simple little one
and in her apartment a piano she has
she played it for everyone

Her boss was a man
she looked at so fair
she loved him with all her heart
but he had a wife
and children to feed
so he never looked at her twice

She said love was never easy
so she placed it in her songs

She had a hard life
She had a hard life
She had a hard life

She left behind
hundreds of songs
she died on Christmas day
the boss went to claim things in her name
and he found her box of songs

he sat down and played
the songs in his name
he kept her piano
brought it home to his wife
who kept it safe and sound

They had a hard life
They had a hard life
They had a hard life

Years go by
Track Name: Lucky Me
Lucky Me – Words & Music by Susan Buchanan

He closes up shop
checks the watch that she bought
it’s been a long day
seems it’s always that way

He starts up the truck
there’s a storm coming up
he'll be home by ten
he’ll be missing her by then

Lucky me
lucky you
right or wrong
we go on

I say my good-byes
there’s a storm coming up
I’ll be home by ten
I’ll be missing him by then

Lucky me
loving lucky you
right or wrong
we go on

And the words that we say
remind us of a different day
and the words we don’t say
remind us
of that price we pay
to feel this way

Lucky me
loving lucky you
right or wrong
we go on

Lucky me
loving lucky you
right or wrong
we
go
on

Track Name: Winter Trees
Winter Trees ( Performed Live at Mackinaw Harvest Music)

A cold winter night
covers every road
I see my life go by
in this falling snow
dressed in my constant doubt
nowhere to go
And what I’m looking for
in this winter freeze
is any shadow of who I used to be

No regrets
though so justified
I gave my best to you
blurring these lines
my confidence and pride
so hard
to find

And what I’m looking for
in this grand old tree
is any shadow
of what I could be

And what you’re looking for
when you look at me
is any shadow
of what we could
be
