Chicago-based singer-songwriter/ guitarist/ producer, Lonnie Leo, jumps into spring with a groovy debut single, "Dead For a While".


Old friend, it's been years since we could just pretend
Like our number of days doesn't drop, but we always watch the clock

Hold fast, cause you ain't runnin like you're built last
True, I was lookin' for someone to know, you got to let me know

I've always flown, came here alone
How does that lead me to you?
Work 'till you're dead, but it's all in your head
We'll be back home right on time
Sweet Charity, I just wanna be asleep in that smile
If you'd come to me, maybe we could be dead for a while

What's the matter, baby, why I feel so far away
If it's really over then I'll just be on my way
I won't say a prayer if there's nothing to be saved


released April 6, 2017
