Gravity 03:53
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

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!

Drive 03:18

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

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

Stars 05:19
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

Goodbye 04:52
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

Dawg 04:53
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

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...

Winter 04:56
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

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?

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.
