Songs by Alison Hogan

All The King's Horses

Words + Music © Alison Hogan / Whole Lotta Music SOCAN

V1

I was just turned seventeen
Said goodbye to Sweet Sixteen
Like every girl I dreamed love was forever

That summer he taught me to drive down by the dusty riverside
I fell hard and I fell deep
When I fell into that sweet sleep

CHORUS

We played a game of let’s pretend
I never wanted it to end
I gave my heart so carelessly
And when he gave the pieces back to me
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put ‘em back together again

V2

He had eyes the colour of old blue jeans
Face from the cover of a magazine
And a heart as cold as the soul of December

But I was just too blind to see just what he had in mind for me
I fell hard and I fell fast
Should have known it was too good to last

CHORUS

We played a game of let’s pretend
I never wanted it to end
I gave my heart so carelessly
And when he gave the pieces back to me
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put ‘em back together again

BRIDGE

Sometimes a girl’s just got to let go
Cos it’s gonna hurt more than she can know
Sometimes a shattered heart is never whole again
Never whole again

CHORUS

Biography:

Alison Hogan : Songs From the Third Act

CD release showcase March 17 at Neptoon Records in Vancouver

www.alisonhogan.com

This is a collection of songs from a unique West Coast singer/songwriter.

They’re about the extremes of love and the human condition, the tribulations of the road, and the quirky randomness of life in general.

Alison’s journey in music has taken many interesting twists and turns. Her lyrics are drawn from a deep well of experience, with a depth of observation that brings her characters to life, making every song a compelling story.

Presented here with a stellar band of fine musicians, Songs from the Third Act is a labour of love, and it shows in every carefully crafted track.

This CD is sequenced like an old-school album, starting with an upbeat set of full band tracks, and winding down with a more subdued acoustic set that includes an evocative cover of John Prine's "Far From Me" showcasing the atmospheric pedal steel guitar of Charlie Hase.
