Skin
Aren't you lucky, that I have such thick skin?
So when you crawl under and let yourself right in
If you curl up there, make it your space
Pull me around you like a duvet
Oh I promise, I promise I will keep you safe
.
I can't be broken if I've got no promise
Cant make me I'm not your lie
This armour pressed so hard into my chest
It's been in my skin all this time
I fall too slow but I fall too deep
Right past love into hate
This mask cuts so deep into my cheeks
That it could well be my face
So aren't you lucky, that I have such thick skin?
We reach with our hands we speak with our fists
But the words we mean won't come out
This smile cemented so thick over my lips
It almost looks like my real mouth
I built myself up to be deserving of love
But now I'm not sure where I begin
And the act ends, I've buried myself so deep
That I've become a pile of things
So aren't you lucky that I have such thick skin
There's so much under my skin
But not what you need
I can tell your hearts broken
From th

Cards
They said sweetheart stand down we don’t want to know your name
Honey honey stand back, and let the adults play this game
Oh, this world don’t care if your hearts gonna tear
Just do what everyone thinks is best
My best tip if the cards you’ve been dealt are all ripped
Is just keep them to your chest
Keep them, keep them, keep them
I said keep them to your chest
I said I know I’m broke but what else can I do but play?
If I play these hearts right will one of them let me stay?
They said that is absurd you’ll get what you deserve
And do what everyone thinks is best
Just sing a safe song you better not do wrong
Those weights belong on your chest
Keep them, keep them, keep them
I said keep them to your chest
What’d you say, what was that? You didn’t think I’d do it did you?
What’d you say, what was that? Well never mind I’m having fun
I swear I tried I tried
To write something brand new
To be something, someone

Rain
Whatever you do, don’t lose control
Keep a straight face when the rain waves come crashing through your soul
Whatever your are, you’re all alone
The water’s coming through the cracks because it knows nobody’s home
Dreaming of the weekend like you’ve always been asleep
Dreaming of a future you’re not good enough to keep
They say you don’t know where you’re going, you don’t like where you're at
This world will swallow you up, just like that, just like that
I don’t think so
Hold your ground, don't look down, in the rain
Hold a little longer
Hold on, hold on
There’s beauty in treading water
When you were meant to drown
Whatever you think, it’s not right
Looking over from the darkness seeing nothing in the light
Whatever you’ll be, it’s more than this
For the right to want to fight for the right to want to live
This shade is who we are and just who I deserve to be
Memories of enemies and every one is me
They

Fantasy
Your chest knows the tune
I’ll be happy soon
That endless beating cycle just to keep alive
Your soul knows the call
They’ll break down the walls
Some soulmate sent to save you upgrade you inside
So do I wait and pray, do I sit and stay, make do,
Or do I scratch, sin, struggle, bits, fight my way to you?
No I’m not an angel yet, I can’t waste away
Buried by words you’ll never say
Will you see me at all?
When I get, these ghosts out my head
Looking through these eyes so dead
Will I see you at all?
Your ears know the sound
Struck, thrown to the ground
They burst in like a ray of light and you think, maybe this time
But your eyes know the scene
It’s just fantasy
Responsibility to feel alright is mine
So do I wait and pray, do I sit and stay, make do,
Or do I scratch, sin, struggle, bits, fight my way to you?
No I’m not an angel yet, I can’t waste away
Buried by words you’ll never say
Will you see me at all?

Vultures
Stop sneaking up on me again
The Eagle lifting up the wren
If vultures mate for life, there’s hope for us
The charnel house is still a house for love
So am I wrong not to be someone that you could be proud of?
And how do you know that there’s any grace in love?
I’m not a fighter, I’m a lover
I’m not that tough, to fight off love
Your eyes are brighter, than any other
But when push comes to shove
Strength, I’ve got enough
The smell of earth on our hands
From digging deep into each others skin
We dragged love down to the land
To try and find the right way in
We thought love could turn us from a crow into a dove
But how do you know that there’s any escape in love?
I’m not a fighter, I’m a lover
I’m not that tough, to fight off love
Your eyes are brighter, than any other
But when push comes to shove
Strength, I’ve got enough
Dear life we demand asylum
Selfish enough to want more, than what I chose to become
Maybe if we bury

You
Music is only constructed mathematics
A rose is just DNA that deviated as it grew
Poetry is empty words to fill up the static
All these things are only beautiful,
Because they make me think of You
You make me believe in an afterlife
And a before-life too
‘Cause somewhere beyond memory I remember
That I’ve always known You
I was always too low to be touched by God
But Oh my God, you touch me. You do.
Neither life nor death could hold my attention
Their meaning came along, alongside You
Love is our last grand narrative
Our last un-bitter end to hold on to
So I may never be a woman of God
But I will always be a woman of You
Love stories are decoys to our deep unhappiness
Life is just dancing around the death that we must do
Thought is just loneliness personified by mess
These things are only worthwhile
Because they let me think of You

Which Jesus?
She said
To be a Christian
You must say
Jesus is Lord.
Ok.
What then?
You go to church.
And read your Bible.
And listen to Christian music.
And hang out
With all the right people
Doing all the right things.
Making Pastor happy
And voting
For all the right politicians.
So who is your Jesus
That following that guy
Caused you to forget
The poor He loved?
The oppressed?
The homeless?
The naked?
The refugees?
Would your Jesus
Hang out with that gay guy
Your church friends
Taught you to convert?
Would your Jesus
Worry about which bathrooms
People use?
Is your Jesus white?
I think we have a Jesus problem
As to which Jesus
Is Lord.

The things I don't tell you
I act
Every second of every day
I am a very good Actor
I don't fake who I am, everything You hear, everything You see is real
But the things I don't say are real too
I don't tell You how I flinched when You said her imaginary friend committed suicide and everyone laughed
I don't tell You why I told You, that I didn't want to, and that I hate the idea of "coming out"
I don't tell You how much it hurts Me that You told me, how much I wish I didn't know
I don't tell You how close I got to others now that You're gone, but I'm afraid you are about to find out
I don't tell You how I never know whether you are being real or fake, so sometimes I don't want to comfort you
I don't tell You how much it makes me want to scream when You never talk about You
I don't tell You a lot, even though I want to because I don't feel like I get the right kind of support from You
I don't tell You, what don't I tell You? I tell You a lot, and not enough
I don't tell You because I am scared, because it is unimpo

Back Ally Cafe
Small back ally café
Warm smile, Warm cup
Kind words, Kind space
Small table just for one
But that’s okay, that’s all I need
A little place just to breath
A little whip cream to make me smile
A little music to calm my thoughts
A little cocoa to warm my hands
A little chat with a kind face
A little slow in the world of fast
No phone, it stays in my pocket
No book it stays in my backpack
No distractions, just for ten minutes
Just sit and watch and listen and learn
And take a moment to do nothing at all
Thank you kind coffee shop and everyone in it
For letting me have a moment
Now back to the world,
Back to my phone,
Back to the loud and yet quiet of strangers
Back to rushing of people everywhere
But that little thing you gave me,
That smile, will last all day

white rabbit
alice had her rabbit hole
and i suppose you could call me jealous
that her path to insanity seemed so straightforward
my white rabbit lead me to you
and then, you didn’t look so dark so dangerous;
it took me too long to realize i had
fallen for you fallen into you
and i kept falling, blonde hair, like alice’s
blinding my view, disguising the depth of my rabbit hole—
when alice landed she got to eat cake;
when i landed
my ribs collided with the ground
sure, my body shrunk,
but shoulders and hands and tears
folding into themselves,
broken bones, and bruises
don’t exactly scream wonderland

Sunset thoughts
I opened my eyes
to the ocean swallowing the sun.
Forever a glimpse of rarity
as my mind enters the night,
and all these thoughts
still haunting me as I'm holding on.
Sunset clarity
cold wind reality,
life is so beautiful to me,
but to a dying soul,
it's nothing but a fatality.
I wish I could show you my mind.
It's a mixture of pure mystery
and a little insanity.

There's so much under my skin
But not what you need
I can tell your hearts broken
From the way you break me
When we mistreat love like this
We deserve to fall
Our live are nothing without this
So just take it all...
My God, I'm crazy, and you're lucky, I stay on this side of my skin

Well there you go,
This just goes to show
Under our own skin is where we're made to exist
So when you go
I'll be brave enough to know
That I can be fine without this

When you go, I know
That I can be something without you.

Before the world and you
I said f**k it, I’m right where I belong
It’s my right to be wrong
Angel or demon

What do you want me to say this heart would screw up on my sleeve
Pray behind ribs it will stay where it cannot break or breathe
Just sing a safe song you better not do wrong, right?
And do what everyone thinks is right
Thing is I think I’m naive enough now to play these ripped cards right
I think I’m naive enough now to play these ripped cards right x2

Camden in Colour
When my previous band headlined Proud Camden, it was huge gig, I felt underprepared and very nervous. And as we got to the venue we saw our first huge vibrant Double Rainbow, and somehow I felt like everything would be ok. True story.

Awww thank you so much for the compliments. I used to be a musician before a head injury, but classical. Now I can't carry a tune in a bucket because no more musical ear. :( But I still really appreciate music, and I definitely like yours. You have intense lyrics that make you think, a pretty soprano voice, and the music itself is groovalicious. :)
