Introducing Laura Roppe

Posted Aug 12 2008 4:22pm

Have you ever thought you were witnessing the beginning of something big?

I feel this now.

My friend Laura Roppe is living her dream and this week that dream took another step forward!

I remember meeting Laura a few years ago when we all huddled around a couch and listened to her speak of finishing a marathon. I’m always in awe of people who work out regularly and well finishing a marathon is about as hard as it gets!

“You know what the best part was?” She said, “The realization that I could do anything!”

Because of that one single experience she was brave enough to join a band and start singing. Gradually she has got out into the community and played around the San Diego area. She’s just recently made a CD but it was only when she stood in a Vons grocery store parking lot recently and took that leap did her dreams really take off.

The producer of a radio program, Jeff and Jer showgram, Little Tommy was sitting in his car. Laura walked over, knocked on his window and made her pitch. He was impressed. You can hear the whole story and listen to her reaction to her music being played on the air for the first time at The Jeff and Jer Showgram

Watch out you just might cry!

You can also listen to Laura’s music on her web site www.lauraroppe.com

In the upper right hand corner are her songs. Be sure to take the time to listen and feel the words. She’s a powerful songwriter! My personal favorites are Little Daughter and Float Away. Here are the lyrics to Float Away. I listened to it 20 times to get all the words down and sobbed. I’m always startled when music can touch that part inside.

Here’s to you Laura. I am releasing you to my blogger world. I wish you the greatest success! You are an inspiration and I am proud to call you my friend.

Float Away:



She says I think I’ll go home, turn off the telephone

Take a little pill to cope and float away

Forget about the day



She keeps telling herself she’s doing just fine

If she lights a candle, drinks a glass of wine

She can float

Float away



She’s not sure how she got to this place

The world is crashing down

All mixed up, letting go, giving up

Never thought she’d end up

Getting wasted

Losing faith

Floating away





She says this life’s too heavy

I’ve reached a breaking point

If check out now, I can leave it all behind

And float

Float away



But she hears the voice of her little girl

Only thing that matters in this whole world

Gotta find a way

Not to fade away



She’s not sure how she got to this place

The world is crashing down

All mixed up, letting go, giving up

Never thought she’d end up

Getting wasted

Losing faith

Floating away



Hold on for one more day

Hold on for one more day

Hold on for one more day



Hold on for one more day

Hold on for one more day

Hold on for one more day



She’s not sure how she got to this place

The world is crashing down

Got to have faith it’ll be alright

Too much to lose if she loses this fight

Baby gowing up ashamed of her life

If she goes away

If she fades away



Won’t float away

No

Won’t float away



Hold on for one more day

Hold on for one more day

Hold on for one more day

Have you taken that step toward realizing your dream? Have you knocked on a few windows in a Vons parking lot?
