Verse 1.
The world is too small with so many people
Mountains are tall, each hurdle a steeple
Tiptoes too loud, strangers are proud
Glances become glares, no,one answers your prayers
Bridge:
Lord is that my phone ringing?
Or the pounding of my heart
bellowing, just clinging, fighting for breath
Chorus:
Cos there's a tiny little corner
Thats been empty, waiting for ya
Has no demons, judges preachers
Like a face that has no features
Stop the tremble, grab the phone
Reach out, cos you'll never talk alone.
Verse 2:
I am not worthy, done so much so wrong
Lost my family, lost my friends
Hard to see where I belong
Only resemble a shadow
of my former self
Don't dress right, don't smell nice
Just hopeless, beyond help
Bridge:
Lord is that my phone ringing
Or the pounding of my heart
Bellowing, just clinging for breath
Chorus:
Cos there's a tiny little corner
Thats been empty, waiting for ya
Has no demons, judges preachers
Like a face that has no features
Stop the tremble, grab the phone
Reach out, cos you'll never talk alone.

You'll Never Talk Alone

Verse 1
You stare back at me but its not me that I see
Just an aging reflection straight faced no connection
Now you resemble a map that leads to nowhere
A journey taken a memory a blur
Chorus
This lines from hitting the ground
Sirens screaming then no sound
This one's from carving my name
When young love was just a game
The first laugh till we cried
Pangs of guilt when we lied
Fingers placed in my ears
Skin chapped, chapped with salty tears.
Verse 2
Each & every line has a story to tell
You teased me with heaven then dragged me to hell
Meaningless work, boring office clerk
The dreaded Black Dog bite
Not knowing my left from my right
Coming off the wrong junction unable to function
Jumping every red light
But this worn out map still right
AND THE SAT NAVS OUTDATED!
Repeat Chorus
This lines from hitting the ground
Sirens screaming then no sound
This one's from carving my name
When young love was just a game
The first laugh till we cried
Pangs of guilt when we lied
Fingers placed in my ears
Skin chapped, chapped with salty tears.

Lines By Ceri G.

Verse 1
When I Gazed into your eyes I couldn't see
Your tone was mellow but I couldn't hear
My thoughts were deep but my thinking was shallow
Regret not being myself just being me.
Bridge.
But you gotta have guts if you got no stomach for it
Trust your instincts & your heart, Go out & pour it
Chorus.
What if the sky fell in & the world was no more
Different time, different place
Would you land at my door
What if the hurt went away
Fastforward to yesterday
What if, What if.
Verse 2.
Time is a healer when you haven't got none
Too many years too young, where have they gone
A cry so silent & a tear too dry
A touch too gentle, a step too high
Bridge.
But you gotta have guts if you got no stomach for it
Trust your instincts & your heart, go out & pour it
Chorus
What if the sky fell in & the world was no more
Different time different place
Would you land at my door
What if the hurt went away
Fastforward to yesterday
What if, what if, What if, What if

Verse 1. Don't waste time stressing on dirty dishes, inmaterial things thatwill still be there, Go out and fulfill all of your wishes, Live your life without a care, Take a Skydive and have a food fight, Run a marathon wear clothes too tight, Swim with sharks and go on Safari, Lose inhibitions who the hell are we. Chorus. You gotta Rip off the Marigolds, set yourself free, free, free, The world could end, who knows, who knows, Life is for living, for living, for living, you,ll see. Verse 2. Have you ever thought that upstairs could be hell, And downstairs could be heaven, Being quiet means that you need to Yell, And Blackpool could be the new Devon, Why the sky is blue And the grass is green, That angels could be Demons that we,ve never seen, Why black could be white and white could be black, No way of telling, cos we aint coming back. Repeat Chorus. Guitar solo, Repeat Chorus.

About Me

Bio

Hi, I'm a 54 year old lady who's main interests are music, writing, animals & the environment. I strongly care also about mental health & well being and feel in the current world we live in my interests are vital in keeping me mentally & physically sane. After working as an office clerk in my earlier years I realised that office work was not for me & then raised my two daughters which kept me busy. I had a difficult childhood growing up due to my fathers drinking so had witnessed a violent past. Along with this I had always never been a people person & wondered why I had always felt different & difficult around people so was not diagnosed with mild Asperges (autism spectrum) until middle 40's. However I had always been obsessed with writing & music so 3 years ago joined a self help group consisting of musical creative peeps. This has been so helpful & enjoyable to me & we still continue to support eachother musically & emotionally even though covid has prevented us meeting all together. Lockdown has given me the time to reflect on my past & future for which I once again have put pen to paper & share my thoughts on how every day life has impacted on me & how I view the world through my eyes as being slightly autistic makes us a little different, if not quirky. This shows through my lyrics but I feel it can make my work & words stand out & grab some folks attention. I am learning the guitar & keyboard but my biggest comfort is writing lyrics & listening to music. I have currently just completed another 2 songs during lockdown.My influences throughout growing up have been rock,
it pop & indie.

CV/History

Was ages 7 years when I could perform most of the Osmands songs & was due to perform on opportunity knocks with my uncle on keyboards but un fortunately my shy nature got the better of me so I did not go through with it. Have been happy to jump on stage in pubs etc & sing a song with groups already performing but obviously this is with a little dutch courage. I also take part in a choir group.
