Sleep in a soft bed, Know that there’s no danger around. Dream of your wishes, Dream of your lover's kiss. Hold up your hands and look at the shadow, Play around. When on the water sail to a place of dreams You’re in a dream, you’re in a dream. Fight off the danger Fight of the danger now. You’re in a dream There’s a treasure waiting at the bottom of the sands X marks the spot and a blade will take all Deep deep down Deep deep down

Dry your eyes you've thought too much, Nothing worth crying over now. Broken glass on cobble stones, Red hem Milk runs down. It's not time to say goodnight. Wait a while soon you'll find, The universe sings. Dry your eyes you've thought too much. Nothing worth crying over now. Broken glass on cobble stones, Milk running down Is it true we know too much? Is it true the youth is floating with us Like a ghost Is it true we know too much? Is it true the youth is floating with us, Like a ghost.

Seems I make you a little bit uncomfortable So I won’t mistake you For someone vulnerable Watch out they’re coming Watch out they’re calling us Watch out they’re coming Watch out they’re grabbing us Seems I make you a little bit uncomfortable I won’t mistake you for someone vulnerable Here they come in a flood Do I make you uncomfortable? I see danger I won’t mistake you for someone vulnerable

Paradise is made, man Thirsty days sipping whiskey grooving with kindred Purple lipstick smudged on your cheek We dance down streets with phony cigarettes and coffee cup Solving the world’s problems one sentence at a time Don’t be down baby They’re all straight Don’t be down baby Are you tired of being nice? Tired of being so nice We’re tired of being still When all we wanna do is let go So who then wins Who can be the king Caught in the headlight Do you wanna be somebody? Really? Or are you just gonna bitch and moan to me? Do you wanna be somebody really? Or are you just gonna bitch and moan to me. I wanna let go Wanna let go?

We savour it, Every sound we make Our love of sound making our hearts ache Never quite finding that sound The song that takes All the pain away Answers all, That we could ever ask Moments lost Planning our arc Moments lost Charge your voices Let them be loud Speak your minds Though it may not feel profound Least you tried to Play some part On this earth We can make some art Futures hold us Captive in this spark Dragging ground Uprooted we’ll go far I’m a dreamer You’re a dreamer We’re all dreamers We’re all dreamers What is real? what is real doesn’t matter Cause we’re all dreamers Dreaming our whole lives through.

A little bird hopped beside me Oblivious to that I was watching My hair was in the breeze Moving to and fro Like all the leaves around me A little bird hopped right beside me Oblivious didn’t even notice me I recall when I was so young when I felt that small A little bird hopped right beside me Oblivious didn’t even see me And I recall when I felt that small And i recall Not looking behind me Today’s only about the sun I don’t care about anyone! I think I am an animal I think I am an animal I want to claim my home. I have my family. I think we’re all animals Waiting for our Appetisers I think we’re all animals Lying around Today’s only about the sun I don’t care about anyone Today’s only about the sun I don’t want to think about anything other than sun Other than sunshine Don’t be sad Life’s a game Don’t be sad

That car’s getting old The wheel’s falling off I think the brakes are stuck I hear it squealing I don’t know that brand But I know your type.. I think I’ll sit still and wait for the rust to kick in Who's the elephant clinging to every memory? I don’t know which way, what, how It ended up this way Keep them under lock and key Better watch out for me Why don’t you just keep them under lock and key Now you’re trembling scared Seen the enemy Snake dressed up as a little kitty Better watch out for me As a little kitty, snake dress up as a little kitty Think I’ll clean you up Pull you apart Better get your guns ready I’m gonna brake your heart You know I’m fed up With this hole In the ground that you keep falling in So climb on out! I control the wind I control the sea Wash you from the feet up I could be your god Or your enemy Snake dressed up as a little kitty Better watch out for me

I’m happier here where everything’s familiar I think I’ve been wise taking my time No one to be disappointed I cut loose, No regrets in this I’ll meet you In purgatory I just Want Two little things That would Satisfy me And I want Yeah I want Two little things I want you to move I want you to dance

You lived in a big house on a small hill No one knew that you were there you stood alone... Wildflowers cover the fields like carpet cover the fields

The king, he stood on pyramids Watching over all the people As they razed the white flag Hand in hands And chains around their ankles One took a bite out of the ground And watched it all go tumbling down Brick by brick year by year Round and round our world turns Time it throws us to the sky our bodies fade into the breeze Some walked with bare feet on the sand Chains around their ankles, walking hand in hand Their money pouring from his hands hair longer than the mountainside You used to sit on pyramids Watching over all the people They took a bite out of the ground and watched it all go tumbling down Watch it all go tumbling down Brick by brick Line by line Day by day Time time time Time it throws us to the sky Our bodies fade And watch it all go tumbling down

I feel them I have growing pains I’ll be reaching higher than I ever knew The sunlight is shining on my finger tips I’m going to hand it on to you I feel them I have growing pains I’ll be there when you reach the extra mile Take up your hobby Throw it in the pile of games I feel them i have growing pains I know that I’ll reach Hahahaha I told you Haha told you Haha told you

Kiss me again Write me a love song Play it to me over and over Play it to me! Over and over

about

In our treehouse on the hills, Wellington howls and rumbles on some noisy nights, the wind rattling our thin wooden walls. We pile old couch cushions and blankets up, and cover the windows with duvets to get a nice vocal. Our lounge littered with leads and pedals, instruments and old Persian rugs. We record through the night.

Daytime noises have found their way into these tracks; its hard to keep the daylight out even when you close the curtains.

This album tells of an artist's journey, a story that starts when she fades to anesthesia. At first alone, she encounters revolutionaries, faces her demons, meets her kindred, finds revelation within the depths of the cat's soulful stare, proclaims her strength, writes an urgent dance-letter, has sweeping visions, rides a camel with Oberon, feels somehow changed but can't quite place her finger on it and possibly needs a hug and a cuddle after all that adventuring.

Emile has beautifully crafted and seduced me with his approach to music, he is a talented composer. I am honored to work with him. As well as having a very kind temperament he is a strong artist with a genuine love for the creative process. I have enjoyed every minute of this project with him. Thanks baby.

And to all the wonderful people that have been a part of my life, given me kisses and a cup of tea when I was tired from life's ups and downs, lent us gear, stopped by in the middle of the night to record, shared a drink or two, you have all inspired these songs.

Now, on with the show.

warm thoughts. Peace
Elizabeth xx
