about

"Haunt Me" displays an artist's attempt to understand the act of performing, selling, and making music. How do these three things interact? Are all necessary to be successful as a musician? Kehoe shows the self-consciousness prevalent in the minds of all artists; half of art is giving it to the masses and allowing them to respond as they see fit. That being the case, it can be hard to completely open oneself up to making art, knowing the public is waiting (or not) for whatever it is you have to say.

lyrics

I personify lyrics I write to you
They'll never be true; they're afraid to be seen
The errors I make, the steps that I take to destroy myself
and come clean again
It's a lesson in trusting you and

There's a chance I'll be mistaken every time
Whenever I attempt to write to you
There's a fear that seems to never come around
If you're blessed, you will haunt me too

Given what I've done, I can say for one
I'm ashamed to stand in front of this band
And jump across the stage
Just put me in a room, tell me what to do and I will try my best
It won't be much
But at least I won't be paid to sing and dance

There's a lesson here, I don't know what it is
Something about the art of love
There's no payoff in the act of fooling you:
I am no singer
I'm no performer

But if you're blessed, you will haunt me too
