    Back of Book 

    "A Light In The Darkness" 

    "In 2008, singer-songwriter Lisa Sniderman was living the dream in California. As Aoede, the Muse of Song, her star as a gifted recording artist was rising fast. Lisa's quirky folk-pop performance style electrified audiences up and down the West Coast, and the albums just kept flowing.

    But just when her career was rocketing skyward, a health crisis brought all of her dreams crashing to the ground. Diagnosed with a rare, debilitating immune disorder called dermatomyositis (DM), Lisa struggled to maintain a normal life with a body in revolt and, eventually, to accept a new normal. Living with a chronic illness challenged Lisa to see DM as a gift in disguise that has opened the door to new dreams, new songs, and new opportunities.

    Lisa's story is for you if you seek strength, new inspiration, hope, joy, healing, and if you or someone you love struggles with a chronic illness, disability, or unexpected life events. Her insights and reflections on her journey inspire hope and the courage to keep dreaming and living to the fullest no matter what life hurls at you."

    Verse 1

     

    I’m tired of two-faced lovers

    Undercover 

    Filled with lies

    So tired of cardboard people

    Empty Steeples

    Plastic Smiles

     

    We all our broken down

    We’re passed around

    Like we are free 

     

    If you can’t keep it real don’t waste your breath talking to me

     

    Chorus 1

     

    Don’t try to tell me what to hear

    Don’t try to scratch my itching ears

    Let make my message clear

    Give me the truth or walk away x4 

     

     

    Verse 2

    I’m tired of dead religion 

    Politicians 

    Dirty Pride

    This world is so concealing 

    Like my favorite makeup line 

     

    Don’t try to win me

    Con me

    Don’t Become my frenemy

     

    If you can’t keep it real don’t waste your breath talking to me

     

    Chorus 2

    Don’t try to tell me what to hear

    Don’t try to scratch my itching ears

    Let make my message clear

    Give me the truth or walk away 

     

    Bridge

    I’m so through with all

    Superficial Love

    No one is ever who they claim to be

     

    You can run from yourself

    But not reality

    If you’ll lie to yourself 

    You’ll lie to me 

     

    The Truth will set you free 

     

    Chorus 3&4

    Don’t try to tell me what to hear

    Don’t try to scratch my itching ears

    Let make my message clear

    Give me the truth or walk away 

     

    Don’t try to tell me what to hear

    Don’t try to scratch my itching ears

    Let make my message clear

    Give me the truth or walk away x4

This is definitely a unique perspective. I love listening to podcasts where I get to learn from another persons perspective, and this is one of those! Thanks for having the guts and inspiration to start up a podcast! You’re a warrior for sure

Love it!

Ande Sivad is a talented woman. I am so happy that she has a podcast on iTunes. I highly recommend her podcast to all those that suffer from chronic illnesses and could use some hope.

Very cool

This is an interesting approach to podcasting. It’s an “Imagination Station” Podcast. I love that the host is creating a unique podcast experience. Super creative and unexpected.
