about

Sometimes before moving forward, it's nice to take a glance back. Although I have been performing in bands since I was 14 in one guise or another, I never had an actual record out until I self released my debut cd "The Demo Seeds" in 2007. And that release helped me to be in the process now of recording my new cd which will be released in 2013 which I am so excited about. However there are still so many songs I have yet to put out or re record. Here is a sample from the first incarnation of my band The Heroines. I hope you will enjoy my younger self and be kind to my mistakes and imperfections as I am not always but I still have a fondness for these songs and indeed ....Anniversary remains a song I still would very much like to re-record and remains a favourite of mine. I hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Anniversary
He left me with myself and not much more
He left me with myself and not much more

The window's broken, and the wall's are crying
beer formed tears shimmy down my walls and stain my bed

oh my darling the tea cup slipped
the things I smashed were an accident
my arms swing round, forgive you
forgive you and clench, I hate you....
want to hurt you

Where did this nausea come from
How could it be so quick
and I'm rocking back and forth now
But I can't sleep in my house
I feel like an unwelcome guest
Would you like to have her here in my bed
One room away but we couldn't be further apart

Oh it's so cold on Coldharbour Lane tonight (Oh it's so cold)
Oh it's so cold on Coldharbour Lane tonight (Oh it's so cold)

I'm breaking in pieces and choking on our last kiss
Imagining I could taste her on your lips
How could you, you son of a bitch
I can't get enough air and I feel ....
sick

Hey hey Jonny Hey Arlene, Hey hey Jonny hey Arlene
Did you get your kicks, I bet they're laughing
Hunter baby this cardboard ain't so thick
I'm on fire but I can't stop shaking

Oh it's so cold on Coldharbour Lane tonight (Oh it's so cold)
Oh it's so cold on Coldharbour Lane tonight (Oh it's so cold)

And if I had the chance I would shake her, I would break her
And if I had the chance I would shake her, I would break her

Track Name: My God (Blur)
Blind me, blur my vision
I see too clear
Just for a little while
let me drown

Let me swim, in warm pretty lights
let me breathe in, warm clouds of smoke
and swirl and twirl, like that pretty girl

Up there, up there from here
her blond hair, her blond hair looks pink
Just for, a little while, I could drown....

In warm brown ale
I sink my head and try to swim
But I could never drown
In your head

Talking backwards in garbled words
Her pretty little voice splits me in two
I wish I wish I wish for more
but get drunk instead
silently screaming
silently screaming
I'm silently dreaming

Hold me, grip me tight
I might fly
Your hand, steers me straight, I always crash
Oh, wind that lasso cowboy,
Your needs and wants are smacking through me
like a whip
She's dancing, she's flying, My God am I sinking
She's dancing, she's flying.....My God!

I pick myself up, I am swimming off the beer stained floor,
someone's drowning
I lick your boots with the tip of my tongue

He parades, the trophy around, he's wrapped in red red ribbons
While she slides pretty pinkness, beneath your coat
I follow, with pretty blind eyes
She wants you, but I don't mind....
I want ....
Track Name: See & Around
See and around
See and around

I see in the middle
I see in between
I see things that I don't want to see
I see what you mean

All these things surround me
try and make me what I don't want to be
No comfort in others
being worse of than me

We are not smiling
We are not smiling
We are not smiling
Something isn't right, something isn't right

See and around
See and around

I'm like a fly on the wall now
I don't like what I see
I wrote the words down
before you said them to me

It all seemed quite content then
two strangers in a room
I'm not alone but alone
not alone but alone
did you get what you wanted
did you get what you wanted

We are not smiling
We are not smiling
We are not smiling
Something isn't right, something isn't right, something isn't right
