about

Bought & Sold marks the first full length offering by Bryan Laurier & The Lost Acres, a veteran group of musicians from around the country grounded in folk, blues and rock influences. The band recorded the 10 track LP after transforming an old barn in the Maine countryside into a recording studio.

Bryan Laurier & The Lost Acres combine a natural, layered sound with hard driving rhythm and textured melodies. Shaped around Laurier’s visual and pointed lyrics, the band has established a unique sound, creating arrangements filled with natural reverb and tone.

Track Name: Love Me Again
I seen somedays so cruel
I seen somedays like you
Floating on rosebuds with their legs in the sun

I watch night fall so dark
decorated with stars
holding' up candles to romance and run

These nights last so long without you
My mind never rests till it finds you
And now that I'm here
Please love me again

My boots they turn black
While I walk down your path
Forgive me my darling, I made it at last

These nights last so long without you
My mind never rests till it finds you
And now that I'm here
Please love me again

The distance pulls like a weight on my chain
these empty arms will hold you again
I grow patient and I grow scared

These nights last so long without you
My mind never rests till it finds you
And now that I'm here
Please love me again
Track Name: Work Too Hard
I feel the pressure just burying my thoughts
There's no way out, but I guess that's part of the cost
Claims, debts, and overdrafts on everything I bought
Put it on my tab with the rest of what you want

Your not gonna buy my soul today
I've worked too hard to have it stripped away
All I have is that and love anyways

My wife makes sense of it all and pats me on the back
Says there's never been a pricetag on what we have
Some men only care about what's bought and sold
At the end of the day, Gold is just Gold

Your not gonna buy my soul today
I've worked too hard to have it stripped away
All I have is that and love anyways

Ghosts knocking on my door at three A.M.
Don't do what you done before

Your not gonna buy my soul today
I've worked too hard to have it stripped away
All I have is that and love anyways
Track Name: By Your Side
If I'm gone in a couple of years
And you find yourself all alone in tears
You feel the good wind kiss your ears

When you find a note in your pocket
that you never new was there
the words act like fingers, as they run through your hair

That's me waiting by your side
That's me waiting by your side
Some things come and go
But true love always shows
That's me waiting by your side

When you set the table and you're dining just for one
You swear you see a hand grab the bottle
and share a glass of wine

That's me waiting by your side
That's me waiting by your side
Some things come and go
But true love always shows
That's me waiting by your side

Some days they feel like rain
they flood your heart again and again
but the sadness splits and the sun will rise
and the clouds will break and you'll know why

That's me waiting by your side
That's me waiting by your side
Some things come and go
But true love always shows
That's me waiting by your side
Track Name: Time Ain't Slowin' Down
I drink my beers in a hurry
while you get drunk off another man
This love I twisted sour
like train tracks quenching at your mouth
Are you holding another mans hand

Don't run away, don't run away (run away)
Don't run away, don't run away (run away)

Time ain't slowing' down
No matter what I try
Time ain't slowing' down, slowing' down

I'm laying on your sweater
I burry my feelings in your scent
As it fades

Don't run away, don't run away (run away)
Don't run away, don't run away (run away)

Time ain't slowing' down
No matter what I try
Time ain't slowing' down, slowing' down

Time ain't slowing' down
Time ain't slowing' down
Track Name: Abigail
Your voice trails off in a distant stream
To end in the ocean beneath my feet
You block your heart out to the world, fine by me
As long as once in a while I can see it beat

Abigail let this come to a close
Abigail you're the one I love the most

While you're gone back home, While you're still away
Every second a mile, every inch a day
I know you've had your doubts, but i won't point blame
I'll keep my mouth shut if it keeps me sane

Abigail let this come to a close
Abigail you're the one I love the most

There ain't a knife that's dull
There ain't no shades to pull
I was as clear as I could

Abigail let this come to a close
Abigail you're the one I love the most
Track Name: Lost In The Thought Of You
There is a sunset that lives in your eyes
There's a cloudy sky in mine darlin'
So as you walk by and you blush while you smile
Well, it melts me inside the good way

Don't move out of my reach too soon

Lost in the thought of you
Lost in the thought of you
Lost in the thought of you

Come crash my dreams while I'm drifting asleep
Won't you tug on my soul in the dark
And just when it seems like you're leaning on me
For a kiss on the cheek, I wake up

Don't move out of my reach too soon

Lost in the thought of you
Lost in the thought of you
Lost in the thought of you

You're the girl I can't navigate
Can't hold up my compass
To find the right way
It's my mind that's paying the cost

Lost in the thought of you
Lost in the thought of you
Lost in the thought of you
Track Name: Down & Out
I see you running out the house
and crying in the yard
cleaning off the tears I always cause

Every sip I take
Every needle I abuse
It tears me up inside, but I can't get enough

Won't you calm my nerves
With your peaceful sound

Down, Down and Out
Down, Down And Out

Next time you call
Well, I hope that I'm alive
Cause I'm feeling like I might not be

Forgive my sins
cause I'm faded out and drunk
and there's kerosene in my veins, won't you get it out

Won't you calm my nerves
With your peaceful sound

Down, Down and Out
Down, Down And Out

Every time I think I've kicked my habit I haven't
I still need you by my side
In other words

Won't you calm my nerves
With your peaceful sound

Down, Down and Out
Down, Down And Out
Down, Down And Out
Track Name: Cannot Pretend
I can carve our names into a stone
Etch out a little heart in a tree trunk
I can pull up the brightest daisies on the way to your house
But I cannot pretend that I'm not fallin' for you

I can walk to your front steps, knock upon your door
I can think of something smooth to say that you've never heard before
I can pull you close and keep you calm
But I cannot pretend that I'm not fallin' for you
No I cannot pretend that I'm not fallin' for you

You could say I'm going crazy for you
Head over heals
But there's no time for white lies or playing hard to get

I can kiss you while the sun sets slow
I can walk beside you and grab your hand to hold
I can get used to the way your smile puts me into shock
But I cannot pretend that I'm not fallin' for you
No I cannot pretend that I'm not fallin' for you

Falling, falling, falling for you
Falling, falling, falling for you
Track Name: Honey, I Ain't Askin' For Much
I ain't begging for beauty or searching for pearls
to light up the night for the entire world
Just want you to lean on when times get tough
Honey, I ain't askin' for much

I ain't asking' for the promise that you're never gonna leave
or even if you're thinking that we'll last past a week
Just want you to remember you make my heart rush
Honey, I ain't askin' for much

So hold on dear cause somehow I fear
I'm being let down slow like the moon
and there's not much I feel I can do

I ain't claiming I'm the best man that's out there for you
or poking' at the notion that you should ever choose
Just give me a few mornings to watch you wake up
Honey, I ain't askin' for much
Honey, I ain't asking' for much
Track Name: When Did Wrong Come My Way
Leave me, it wouldn't be so bad
It'd be a different kinda drowning
than the luck I've had

Wakin' up in the dead of night
you cry into your pillow
I pull you close, but not enough to make it right

So please don't leave me to blame

When did wrong come my way
When did wrong come my way
Been tryin' to kick it out
Never knew I could be so afraid
When did wrong come my way

I'll help you pack your bags
Let you settle in at home
Take care of the dog and everything we own

Trust me if I could I would explain

When did wrong come my way
When did wrong come my way
Been tryin' to kick it out
Never knew I could be so afraid
When did wrong come my way

Takes everything I have not to tell you
I still set the table for two
I'd rather keep you from this pain

When did wrong come my way
When did wrong come my way
Been tryin' to kick it out
Never knew I could be so afraid
When did wrong come my way
