Black Orchid Lyrics

Our stars aren't aligning
In a world that's so corrupt
Synchronistic timing
I opened up Pandora's box
and her seven deadly locks
Still searching for you

No changing of the season
No more good reasons
For why it happened to you
or why it feels like we're all doomed

I watched you like
A distorted muse
I only have the strength to lose
my mind
Now I'm running out of time
Hiding behind enemy lines

No changing of the season
No more good reasons
For why it happened to you
or why it feels like we're all doomed

All because they lie
Invent their sorry alibis
Every demon that
we hide
Crying out at night

No changing of the season
No more good reasons
For why it happened to you
or why it feels like we're all doomed

Seven Locks

Call out my name and I'll run to you
So much for us left to do
Do all the things that you want me to
Caught in the tide, I'm coming unglued
Blinded by the light that I see in you

Tell me that you're mine
That we aren't running out of time
Bathing in your holy light
Together we can win this fight

Torn apart like paper dolls
Now I can't feel at all
Our backs are up against the wall
Where they made me deaf to all your calls
Now I'm patiently waiting for you

Tell me that you're mine
That we aren't running out of time
Bathing in your holy light
Together we can win this fight

Tell me you love me
Call my name and I'll come running
To you

Call My Name

Feathered paper with ornate layers
The silent bird sits at the table
Sees you when you're crying
She sees the ways they're lying
Your own origami angel

Everything looks perfect
But you feel so deserted
And they've been denying your truth

Me, too.

Don't let that smile fade
They say day after day
You're not enough, take these drugs
Gotta just toughen up because
Appearances are everything

Everything looks perfect
But you feel so deserted
And they're denying your truth

Me, too.

You can shine brighter
Than any star in the sky
A soul that was born to fly

Paper Crane

Paper Crane

I'll crush your bones into stardust
For tearing our world apart
Falling angels shine the brightest
With darkness in their hearts

I don't even know what I'm searching for
Too many signs to just ignore
Feeling the ache down to my core
I'm just fighting with myself

Sifting through every lie
A face I can no longer recognize
Searching for a silver line
Caving in on myself

I don't even know what I'm searching for
Too many signs to just ignore
Feeling the ache down to my core
I'm just fighting with myself

All of the plans that you devise
Cut you right back down to size
Smoke is filling up our skies
I'm losing myself

About Me

Bio

My name Is Danielle and I'm 29 years old. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and currently own my own business. I write wherever inspiration comes from that day, whether it be through my own personal experiences topics that I find interesting. I am open to writing multi-genre lyrical styles, including rap lyrics. My biggest musical inspirations are rock, pop, and emotive music. I am an aspiring musical artist myself but at this time, writing lyrics is the most comfortable for me. I also create soundtracks (music only) and will be uploading soon as part of my portfolio.

CV/History

I took advanced English courses throughout my formal education in High School and at University, though it has always been more creatively focused as I was studying Veterinary Science. I developed a chronic pain condition called Occipital Neuralgia and was unable to pursue a veterinary career any further after graduation. I worked in animal shelters and a veterinary office before I chose to pursue opening a tattoo studio in 2017. Writing has always been a creative hobby for me that I would like to turn into a part of my career.
