Trophy Scars – Nola (New Orleans, LA)

PART 3 of 3.
I fly back down to Michigan
Bring the picture of the key
I show the locksmith Nigel
And then he laughs at me

The key is something digital
He can’t recreate
So I track her down to New Orleans
To ask her on a date

Man I should’ve done this
A way long time ago
I pretend it was an accident
When I’m at the same hotel

“Hey there, miss, remember me?”
“We used to have a ball.”
She tells me she’s excited
And agrees that we should talk

Yes
Let’s have a drink
Let’s have a talk
Let’s meet at your room at nine
So we do
We drink some wine
We talk about old times
Then she cries
Says her sorry
I tell her that it’s fine
I move in close
I hold her tight
I tell her to relax or

If
she
moves
I’ll
break
her
neck

This is for
Everything
Anytime
Anything
Breaking me
Leaving me
Stealing keys
Comes to an end

She
Cries
Stop
But
I don’t see
Why I should
When she
Didn’t for me

I
Say
Fine
But
It’s
Too late

I didn’t mean to kill her
But I gone done did it
I wish I could’ve told her
It was all over
Love, love, love
And money

So I grab her bottom lip
I pull her mouth wide open
Then I pull out my key
It was covered in
Stom – ach
Ac – Id

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Then I book my flight
I head back to Geneva
I don’t believe in God
But I do believe I’m evil

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I think about my life
I ponder my decisions
I walk into the bank
With 20/20 vision

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I open up my lock box
I only found a note
It reads “I’m sorry that I left you”
“But you have been set up, love..”

Rub my eyes and turn around
Sure enough I had been found
two guys approached me
Put a gun to my head
They told me how lucky
I am to be dead
I kneel down and feel a pinch
All I taste is smoke and soot

Don’t trust
Your luck

Played my cards and now I see
This whole time she was playing me
The only people you can trust
Are in control of your blood’s luck

Alexis Marceaux

New Orleans and Music are virtually synonymous.  I love music, all kinds.  I have my favorites like everybody else, but one of the things I love about New Orleans is there is music everywhere.  I knew early on that I would never be a “Star” since I have no musical talent to speak of, so it is no wonder that I am in awe of those who do.  After lunch one afternoon my husband handed me a CD on his way out to an appointment and said “A client gave me this.  It’s her daughter.  Listen to it and see if you want to catch her live performance later.  She is playing in the Quarter tonight.”  I figured I’d listen to the CD first, before deciding.

 So after seeing him out, I picked up the CD again. “Alexis Marceaux” I read.  “Pretty name”, I thought.  The picture on the cover showed an attractive young lady lying in the grass.    “Cute picture” was my next thought.  I guessed her age to be very early 20’s at best.  Still unsure this would be something I ( in my old age) could relate to, I popped the CD in and “pretty and cute” were not what I was thinking as this big amazing voice filled the room.   Wow, could I relate and I definitely had to reevaluate.  “Powerful” and “Beautiful” were just the beginning.  Of course I was going to see her perform live.  Alexis’  “Elevator Ride” had just become my new favorite song.

The revelations kept coming.  Alexis, young as she might be, was no new kid on the block.  She had played her first public venue at 7 years old and had written her first song at 13.  This young singer-songwriter is also an accomplished piano, harmonica and guitar player. “Talented.”   A New Orleans native, Alexis and her family had lost everything in Hurricane Katrina and had to start completely over.   Katrina might have taken her home, but not her dream to play music.  “Gutsy.”  Her dream to play music in New Orleans, a city she loves. “ Heart.”     
 

Check out Alexis Marceaux, the young lady with a powerful, big, beautiful voice who is also a multi-talented performer with guts and heart.  I have seen and heard “Stars” with less to recommend them.  I should have known better than to judge a book or, in this case, a CD by its cover.  Find out for yourself.   Alexis plays live venues all over the greater New Orleans area and is scheduled to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in April.  For more about Alexis and her scheduled appearances visit her website: http://alexismarceaux.com/

It is certainly appropriate to mourn the loss of those we love, but we believe it is equally as appropriate to honor them by celebrating their lives.

Interfaith Memorial Service at St. Louis Cathedral – 1:30pm

WHERE: The Hotel Monteleone 214 Royal Street New Orleans, LA 70130 St. Louis Cathedral Jackson Square Convenient parking located at the Hotel Monteleone Garage, entrance on Bienville or at Solari’s between Bourbon and Royal on Iberville. WHY: We offer a recreation of the jazz funeral for those who wish to bury the distressing memories of Katrina as our city moves forward. This jazz funeral can be theoretical or you can toss some real Katrina era items in the coffin to bury for good. We suggest a scrap of blue tarp, a Clorox bottle, a fly swatter, an MRE or a list of excuses. Surely we can all think of a few more things.

Since 1886, the Hotel Monteleone, www.hotelmonteleone.com, has proudly stood as one of the first landmarks in the famous French Quarter. The hotel is the Quarter’s largest full-service hotel, featuring 600 comfortable, luxurious guestrooms and suites.
