From the recording Ghost Hotel

Morand & Latam were inspired by the pandemic but wanted to capture isolation that effects us all throughout life. Latam adds his distinct voice and psychedelic, crunchy guitar.

Lyrics

Locked Down and Out Blue -written by Karen Morand and Justin Latam 2020

I’ve been restless and pacing now - floorboards are wearing thin
These 4 walls I’m staring down are starting to close in
All these days, all these nights doing hard time missing you
I just can’t shake it - I’m locked down and out blue


Ain’t no sunshine this morning - storm clouds rolling in
I used to walk on water -it’s time to sink or swim
All these days, all these nights doing hard time missing you
I just can’t shake it - I’m locked down and out blue

Before this all went down
Weren’t we all just safe and sound?
But things they went oh so wrong
So what’s it gonna take to make your cold heart break
And get you to come back around?

I’m stuck in an hourglass moments fall one by one
Every grain is an avalanche - it just keeps piling on
All these days, all these nights doing hard time missing you
I just can’t shake it - I’m locked down and out blue
