about

Lightshow is the debut EP released by Paul Lasko containing several tracks recorded all in an at-home recording studio. This EP is a collection of emotionally- and thought-inspired songs with mostly an acoustic guitar and piano driven sound.

This EP is split into two halves called "Incandescent" and "LED" respectively, following a theme of light. Incandescent's songs (the first four tracks) were completed in musical concept and lyrics between 2008 and 2010. The last four tracks (the "LED" side), contain tracks that were unfinished between 2010-2011 and recently completed in either or both music and words for this EP and are all new recordings using the latest musical innovations discovered by Paul including virtual instruments such as synthesizers and other sampled instruments such as drums and the famous Mellotron.

The digital download of this album will include jewel case inserts in JPG format, and a PDF guide on how to print those images, so you can burn your own physical copy to a CD.

Track Name: Turn Around
Oh when I feel blue,
Won't you let me go?

But even if I say no,
Don't you let me go.

But will you give me some time
to get to know you? Oh, no.

I'll Find someone new.
Then I'll make a show.

And I'll turn you blue
so that you will know...

...how I feel when you're
inside my mind. Oh, no.

(chorus)
And in the morning when I wake up
From a bad dream,
I hear the screams from your mind.

You won't get out of my head.
It's a bad time.

Let's float upstream.

(Music Break\Solo)

(Chorus)
Track Name: As a Friend
Maybe you'll believe me and maybe you cant
I just wanna tell you I want to replant the seed.

Let's turn a new leaf, start a new slate.
I need you to feel that you can be safe with me.

I want you to know that I don't want it to end
'Cause I need you as a friend.

It's a little thing I want to restart.
I'm not asking you to give me your heart, it's true.

We can hang out at lunch or find something else to do.
I'm not asking much; I just want to be friends with you.

I want you to know that I don't want it to end
'Cause I need you as a friend.
(x2)
Track Name: Waiting for You
Hold on.
Try not to forget her.
When she's gone,
Just try to remember the good times
And she'll remember too.
Hold on, she's waiting for you.

Remember.
Go back to the time that
you met her.
A miracle happened.
Just treasure
the time you'd first spoken.
Remember she's waiting for you.

Dreaming.
She's there in your sleep.
You can see her
lying there beautifully.
Dream of
the kiss that you shared and just
hold on, she's waiting for you.
Track Name: See Through You
We used to walk together
Now I'm on my own
You said it'd last forever
Now I walk alone
How can I learn to
live by myself

I ask her a simple question,
"Where you goin' now?"
She gives me a simple answer,
"Getting on somehow."
It's a funny thing
I am too.

(chorus)
I'll try to forget you
And I'm not breaking down.
I can choose and
I choose to live without
All of your bullshit, your lies,
Use the truth as disguise
But I see through you.

I see through you now (x2)

A few more years pass by.
You think of me and cry.
You think you have a chance
To fix it all. But you don't.

You call me on the phone now.
I'm not answering.
Maybe two more tries now.
I'll just let it ring.
Don't worry baby I am fine. Yeah I'm fine.

(chorus)

I see through you now.
Woah yeah. Ooh.
I see through you now. Oh yeah.

(Vocal break)

(Chorus)
Track Name: See In Me
(Prelude)

When your mind is afraid
and you can't take any chances.
Look what's ahead on the road.
Find your way and you'll
know where you're going.
See what you see in me, in me.

When you know the steps
but you don't know how to dance them
Come hold my hand. Follow me.
Find your way and now
look, you are dancing.
See what you see in me, in me.

(Solo)

If you need a friend
when there's no one to rely on.
Come hold my hand. Follow me.
Find your way and now
look, you have friendship.
See what you see in me, in me.

(Postlude)
Track Name: Let You Go
I looked into your eyes
and I found a big surprise.
I gave that look back.

And I went through
the tunnel of your view.
It led right to my very soul.
It led right to my very soul.
And I don't want to let you go. (x3)

When will we meet again?
Or are we doomed to be friends?
Will you get back?

When you're through
the tunnel of your view.
Look into my very soul. (x2)
And I don't want to let you go. (x3)

(Instrumental)

Don't want to let you go. (x3)
Track Name: Fog
Look back from the mirror.
Can't you see that it's not clearer?
Can't figure out how to wipe the fog away,
But that's OK. Oh, baby, I've got you.

Please can you explain
Where there's fog there's always rain.
It's putting a damper on my sunny day,
But that's OK. Oh, baby, I've got you.

Oh, fog, go away,
Don't come back another day.
Just leave me and my baby alone
to love each other today.

Listen are you hearing
All the things that I've been fearing.
I hope I never have to go away.
But I'm OK. Oh, baby, I've got you.

(solo)

Look back from the mirror.
Can't you see that it's not clearer?
Can't figure out how to wipe the fog away,
But that's OK. Oh, baby, I've got you.

Oh, fog, go away,
Don't come back another day.
Just leave me and my baby alone
to love each other today. (x5)
Track Name: Turn Around (Acoustic Reprise)
Oh when I feel blue,
Won't you let me go?

But even if I say no,
Don't you let me go.

But will you give me some time
to get to know you? Oh, no.

I'll Find someone new.
Then I'll make a show.

And I'll turn you blue
so that you will know...

...how I feel when you're
inside my mind. Oh, no.

(chorus)
And in the morning when I wake up
From a bad dream,
I hear the screams from your mind.

You won't get out of my head.
It's a bad time.

Let's float upstream.

(Music Break\Solo)
