about

Nocturnal, dreamy, reflective, passionate, intimate, melancholy, earthy, Empowerment, heartache, loss, grief - a soundtrack to our lives as humans.

A soundtrack for the moments in your life: when the winter comes, when a love is lost, when you realise you are ok, when you have to stand and fight, when the darkness comes and you are drowning in it, there is... a tiny flicker of hope, bravery and love.

I have never really felt 'heard' so I became quiet. I began writing poetry and a diary when I was 11 and songs sometimes came. Sometimes I catch songs when they come fluttering through my window like a ghost bringing me their stories. They are really the deepest thoughts that come out to brave the world. Kenny helped me make them into songs, like a bed of flowers to present themselves to the world. Performing has always felt like the most unnatural thing to me, but now 'my girls' want to be heard. They really like living in a recording. Maybe you'll let them out for a bit and listen to their stories, maybe you'll become friends. I know that makes them really happy when they find a kindred soul.

Track Name: Gravity
all the clouds are empty now
we wade in the shallows when the tide is out
what once floated in the gentle deep
now motionless
in the gravity

gravity
holds us down
no one can see
but we are bound for all our reasons
we are broken
by our own fear

and all the strength that we possess
to make it safely up somewhere
to climb till we reached the top
but fear we’ll fall
in the gravity

bravery isn’t always clear
sometimes it’s just getting out of here
I see a pillow and you see your escape
I devise another plan
you go to work if you can

you don’t need me when you are bold
I see you searching for the end of the road
I leave to bring you yet one more cup
you leave the door open
but don’t fill it up

gravity
holds us down
no one can see
but we are bound for all our reasons
we are broken
by our own fears
gravity
holds us down
can’t tell truth from our lies
wish we could float free
without this gravity
gravity
Track Name: Oh No (I will never give in)
You can take what I have from me
that will never break me
its not the reason I carry on
its not the thing that makes me
oh no, oh no, that will never break me

live my life till the day I die
with purpose and with reason
and when I go be sure to know
you’re not the one I’m pleasin’
oh no, oh no,
you’re not the one I’m pleasin’

I work hard
I work hard
I work hard for what I have
and what I have is mine
oh yeah oh
what I have is mine

Wheel of fortune it goes round
not with luck you spin it
a destiny is earned my friend
I am gonna win it
Look at that wheel turn
look at that wheel spin
the train to middle is a fulla fools
and I will never get in
I will never get in
oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no,
I will never get in
I will never get in
I will never get in
I will never give IN!
Track Name: Drive

you were the last to leave
you left me all alone
I can’t follow you to where you’re
never going
sit in the cold dark car for hours
contemplating
this love to hating
so I’ll move on again

I’ll just drive
forever over white lines
forever till the gas line’s
empty just like me
I’ll just drive
I can take the high road
taking time to reload
just be me, just be with me
just be with me

I’ll take a little time to
figure out myself to
know just who I need and still be me
here I am just being with this love I’m feeling
I’ll never have to leave
just be with me

I’ll just drive
forever over white lines
forever till the gas line’s
empty just like me
I’ll just drive
I can take the high road
taking time to reload
just be me, just be with me
just be with me

I can fill myself up fill my self up fill myself up

there’s a fork sign here
on this dusty road
but I’ll find my way
home

I’ll drive
forever over white lines
forever till the gas line’s
empty just like me
I’ll just drive
I can take the high road
taking time to reload
just be me, just be with me
Track Name: Before I Met You
Before I met you I was cool
believe it or not
you would have liked me then

Before I met you I was strong
you should have seen me moving mountains,
you would have loved me then

now we fight all night and day
and I don’t like what
I’ve become

now I stray all day from dreams
I had when I could conquered them
you would have wanted me then

Before I met you I was a fool
believed in love and gave up to it
everything

Before I met you I could see how life
would be with you and I and we were
forever

now we fight all night and day
and I don’t like what
I’ve become

now I stay in bed all day
i lie in company with tears and heartache
and still cant believe it

when I met you I was cool
do you remember when
you loved me
Track Name: Mercy
oh my lord
it sure come down
down from the heavens
unto the ground
a grateful rain
ungrateful storm
sure gonna make me
fall right down,
to my knees
to my knees
have mercy please

oh good lord
there’s a thunder clappin'
a lighting strike
on the tin roof rappin'
it sure is close
it sure is near
sure gonna make me
wanna leave here
down on my knees
on my knees
have mercy

mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, 
mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy,
down on my knees, 
on my knees
have mercy please

mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, 
mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy,
down on my knees, 
on my knees
have mercy please
go tell yo momma
there’s a storm in the air
go tell yo sista
she better take care
go tell yo papa
tie down that house
we all gonna end up
swimmin' down south
down on our knees
on our knees
have mercy
Track Name: Stars
Lay down with me in the cool grass
warm wind in our hair
there’s summer breath 
in the tall trees
it’s fingers caressing the air

you dance slow under canopy
holding me under your spell
darkness it comes unnoticeably
so quiet the stars in the sky
fall right into the hollows 
of your eyes

fall to the ground
swallow us up
see the whole earth
from the other side
lay down with me, 
lay down with me, 
lay down with me,
and all the stars 
fall out of the sky
to live in the hollows 
of your eyes

So quiet the forest at night sings
wait patiently for the light
there’s winter breath 
on the ocean
make all the clouds in the sky
we fly slow in the gravity
floating right into her sleep
darkness it comes unnoticeably
so quiet the stars in the sky
fall right into the hollows 
of your eyes

hair in the dirt, 
your face red from the wine
and the ground would swallow us, 
all up in time
ever entwined on this 
steep mountain side
where you can touch gods 
with your genius mind

fall to the ground
back into dust
see the whole earth
from another side
lay down with me, 
lay down with me....
and all the stars fall out of the sky
Track Name: Goodbye
I know what I should do
and I know what you wanted me to
say when I am far from you
but I can’t say it

I know that nothing stays the same
and I know what I should do
to let you go home sooner
than stay here in my arms

goodbye’s a sorrow
goodbye’s a tears
goodbye my darling
separated by a thousand years
and all of our longing
lies here at your feet
this goodbye is impossible to keep

I know what you wanted
and words you longed to hear
and we have all those secrets
forever buried here

Words are like the raindrops
falling hard on parch earth
and we know we had more
than both of us are worth
Track Name: Dawg
ohoooo my darling
ohoooo my darling young one
why do you shed a tear for him
when you know he’s not the one
you know he don’t love you
like you think that he should
you know he’s out chasing tail all around the neighborhood
he treat you like a dog
he treat you like a dog

ohoooo my honey pie
ohoooo my sweet young thing
who do you cry all night for him
when he don’t give you anything
you know he don’t love you like you think that he should
you know he’ll never be the one that you think he could
he treat you like a dog
he treat you like a dog

you know he don’t love you like you think that he should
you know he’ll never be the man that you think he could
he treat you like a dog
he treat you like a dog

Look at yourself 
in the mirror tonight
do you see 
what you have become.....
you’re better than that
you’re better than that
you’re better than that
you’re better than that
Track Name: Love Is Slow Motion
If you give me a breath
I’ll take it
and give you
a part of the ocean
swimming in time to the tide
the weight of the world
deep inside
we just lie

you can hold on to me so tightly
then tear us a part
when you leave me
we could just float
away in this dream
but you turn and go
slow

love is slow motion
love is slow motion
love is slow motion
breath and devotion
love is slow

we had it good
for a moment
time on our side
we held on tight
soft like the rain, fall slowly
but there you go
slow

love is slow motion
love is slow motion
love is slow motion
breath and devotion
love is slow

Why did I let myself give myself a hope
I see myself drowning in the under tow
You held on so tight then you just let me go
I don’t let myself breathe
no more

slow motion
love is slow motion
love is slow motion
breath and devotion
love is slow

chorus cont...
Track Name: Winter
oh the winter it came suddenly
down into the valley
rain turned the snow
fore we had time
to gather in the kindling

the babe was due in months to come
but wanted to come sooner
of strong mind
it seemed a curse 
it carried from her mother

she came the day
i’d feared the most
while my man went out a hunting
and the blizzard that was due to hit
came early and left us starving

the wind did howl and moan and wail
and hours turned from days to weeks
but god he’d never leave me be
we prayed for his returning

Spring time 10 years later
a traveller did find us
looking for a place to sleep
found me and babe clutched to my breast
and my mans bones upon the landing
Track Name: Dawg (Theatre Dialogue) BONUS TRAK
I'll make a taxidermy of your head, he said.
Who says that?
I will come home when I am good and ready woman, he said.
Whooo says that?
I'm gonna throw you out and lock the door, you can go sleep with the dawgs he said.
You treat those dogs better than me, I said,
And when he was up real close in my face, I looked for any kind of good in those eyes, and then all I sees is black.
I don't recognize myself in the mirror no more,
my eyes used to be a lovely shade of grey,
When they all turn white?
