Your mouth in the morning tastes like cigarettes
It’s a little bit unnerving but it’s still the best
And I am haunted
You’re all I ever wanted
This bed feels the same as any other day
The bumps on my skin show not much has changed
But time is passing

No love is everlasting
Said I didn’t wanna hold you but I lied
When you took your hand away, I cried
I don’t wanna let you waste my time again

Where you go
I don’t know
Where did you go
I don’t know
We’re not on the same page; you’re far too unaware
You look at me with your bleak barren stare
And I am haunted
I drool over every word you say
You look at me the exact same way
I think I’m changing but not much has changed

Where you go
I don’t know
Where did you go
I don’t know
Where you go
I don’t know
Where did you go
I don’t know

Said I didn’t wanna hold you but I lied
When you took your hand away, I cried
I don’t wanna let you waste my time again
Said I didn’t wanna hold you but I lied
When you took your hand away, I cried
I don’t wanna let you waste my time again
Said I didn’t wanna hold you but I lied
When you took your hand away, I cried
I don’t wanna let you waste my time again

Where you go
I don’t know
Where did you go
I don’t know
Where you go
I don’t know
Where did you go
I don’t know
Where you go
I don’t know
Where did you go
I don’t know

Said I didn’t wanna hold you but I lied
When you took your hand away, I cried
I don’t wanna let you waste my time

Paging Doctor Moon - Haunted (Interview)

Interview

We are very happy with the visit of Paging Doctor Moon. Beautiful song.

Tell us about yourself.

I’m the singer/songwriter and band leader for Paging Doctor Moon. I started the project in Brooklyn but I am currently living in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA.

We would like to know your history as an artist.

Music has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I started writing songs as a teenager but was very insecure so I kept them to myself for nearly a decade. Self-recording in a damp basement for two years helped me to develop my style as a writer, and I produced 3 EPs by myself. In 2018 (after a bad break up, of course) I decided to get over it and challenge myself to share my work. I started an indie soul collective called Kirsten and the Pretty People, and we gigged in NYC up until COVID. Two members of the Pretty People, Morgan and Michael, helped me craft the songs for this album, and we recorded them with our talented producer/engineer/friend Julian Giaimo.

Tell us the story of this song.

Haunted is about a toxic relationship that feels like Groundhog Day. You keep going back to it even though you know it is hurting you. Morgan and I wrote it on the porch at Julian’s house when we were recording the album. I had been seeing someone on and off for over a year, and it was a painful relationship. He was hot and cold, unconsciously leading me on, and I never told him the truth about the depth of my feelings. I lied about how I felt because it was easier than leaving it behind. Morgan played me chords that she had been working on and the song spilled out in about fifteen minutes.

Tell us a funny story from your career.

Gigging in NYC was always very interesting. The funniest show I ever played was opening for a variety show at Club Cumming in the Lower East Side for a magician and a drag queen named Tammy Spanx.

Also tell a story of overcoming.

Music is an act of catharsis. When I write a song, I can process my emotions about my experiences. I’ve experienced a lot of trauma surrounding sexual abuse, and have been living with PTSD for 26 years. As a result, I have been engaging in toxic relationships for most of my adult life. Before I started sharing my stories, I couldn’t heal. I was stuck in an endless cycle. Once I started connecting with others over our shared humanity, I was able to build a strong community of friends and family. Ultimately, I believe that strength can be built through vulnerable communication, and I want my music to help other people feel empowered to share their experiences. Our lives are messy, and it’s human nature to hide a lot of what we go through. I want to help people feel safe to fully express themselves, both the good and the bad, because I really believe that we can all feel better.

Leave a message for your fans.

Thank you, I love you!

Paging Doctor Moon we wish you much success.

And see you in the next interview. Bye!
