R What a bright young light who deserves to be better known. A total polymath, she does it all... on her own. Favorite track: He Said.

Track Name: Real
you tell me find your rhythm · that's all you gotta do · but maybe i can't find that rhythm · till i'm standing next to you · it's an easy rhythm · that's what they all say · but when you've never had that rhythm · it seems a world away · cause what if all this time i've been playing the wrong part? · what if the melody was wrong from the start? · what if i never felt what i was meant to feel? · what if the beating of this heart is not real? · everyone knows the rhythm · it's in your dna · but maybe i can't hear that rhythm · til it hits me in the face
Track Name: Billionaire's Treasure
sort it out dear i'm going to war · head on the pavement and heart on the floor · thought i had it all under control · but the devil's got a funny sense of humour · falling for you one piece at a time · now i'm scared cos my heart's on the line · one shot for love another for change · but i'm telling you dear you wanna get outta here · sort it out dear count me a fool · one toe in then lept straight in the pool · tell me why do i always feel so cruel? · fuel for the fire · fuelling desire · oh no no no why you do this to me?! · let me in and love me til i can't breathe · i'll love you forever but you gotta go free · you deserve better · you'll be a billionaire's treasure · don't settle for this broken down heart of mine
Track Name: He Said
went walking down town to the old record store · met a man sitting down on a dusty wooden floor · he said i ain't got a clue what we do this for · one more day's gonna kill me even one day more · i said mr i hear and i feel your pain · been walking round these same old streets once again · seems to me this life goes on in vain · he said you're preaching to the choir don't it drive you insane? · he said trains come through here 100 times an hour at 100 miles an hour · it's no joke dear · think it's gonna stop? well you'd better think again · check out the schedule up here in your head · no it don't stop for weekends not a single day off · once you get on no you're never getting off · he said · the man grabbed a match and drew a cigarette out · just in time to hear the shopkeeper shout · outta here don't want no stinking scrounging layabouts · and as he left i said i just wish you'd let me hear him out · now it's been four months but i'm feeling years behind · trains keeping rhythm like clockwork up inside · and as i spot the old man playing chicken with his time · i said you're right it won't keep quiet in this stupid old head of mine · i said trains come through here 100 times an hour at 100 miles an hour · it's no joke here · i thought that it would stop but now i've thought again · checked out the schedule up here in my head · no we don't stop for weekends not a single day off · now that i'm on no i'm never getting off · i said
Track Name: Alex
i messed up bad · got it all so wrong · tangled you up in the words of a song · i guess my apologies got lost in the post · or maybe i just never had the strength and had to let it go · alex oh alex didn't know what you were thinking of · alex oh alex i never said enough is enough · and i know i know i know i know i should have had the guts to say · but i was young and held my tongue · i knew no other way · i'm sorry to say · sometimes your brain likes to play games · tell you you want what you don't really want then run and hide away · i felt so bad for leading you on · maybe it's nothing but sometimes i worry so here's my sorry in a song · in all honesty i never believed someone would want someone like me · caught up in denial that old vicious spiral took the best out of me · i was the frog and you were the prince · you handled it well so i flinch · cos i treated you bad and i'm sorry for that but you're a love i would never have had · one day you'll see this sorry i sing · or maybe it'll pass by you completely · you might forget but i will regret · how could i be so mean to say no through a screen? · alex you come back to haunt me
Track Name: Firelines
firelines in the sky · burn into my eyes · fireflies climb so high · buzzing through my mind · and we've battered through the ages · torn apart the walls to sleep · but now the crashes have broken in · and silence is just a dream · symptoms of design · desire fate to align · mumblings of a broken soul · alive but forgotten how to breathe · and we're scattered through the ages · thrown off the need for heat · but loudness shakes the time divide · and silence is just a dream · when he holds you do you still feel nothing? · when she hurts you do you feel no pain? · it's a strange world where love is real · but life is just a game · silence is just your dream
Track Name: Ode To Her
god i don't understand what all this is about · making plans to understand while this world just falls apart · god i can't see the humanity in the pictures on the screen · no share and care just break and bruise · shaping up to live and lose · this is an ode to her · she would have loved your people to sing · praise to you father for you are everything · and i know you've got her · your darling daughter · heaven must be filled with laughter · as i sing this ode to her · god i know your heart breaks whenever silence shatters grace · tears fall down to the sound of a world where evil's found · god you say you'll repay · wipe away our tears someday · justice and mercy tie up the story · grace unleashed to bring you glory · and it seems this world's in mourning · longing for an end to this story · and for once i heed the warning · help me leave this world with something more · this is an ode to her · she would have loved your people to sing · praise to you father for you are everything · and i know it hurts you that's how i trust you · heart breaks more than any ought to · as i sing this ode to her
