Get a sugar high like no other
Such damn sweetness when I kiss you
It lingers on my lips
And as it does,
I want your hands to spend a lifetime
On these hips

Pulling me close
Swaying side to side
A taste of heaven
Starting with that mouth
Effortlessly catching me in your tide

Want your lips to be my tattoo
Have them here on my skin
Forever, forever laid bare...
With their own story to tell
Catching me in their spell
Oh, let the ink flow,
Let the ink flow
And take me there

Get to hideaway from it all
Such a silky veiling drops when I kiss you
Your lips conceal my fears
And as they do,
I want your hands to explore,
Be perfect pioneers

Pulling me close
Swaying side to side
A taste of heaven starting with that mouth
Effortlessly catching me in your tide

Want your lips to be my tattoo
Have them here on my skin
Forever, forever laid bare...
With their own story to tell
Catching me in their spell
Oh, let the ink flow,
Let the ink flow
And take me there


Get a stirring deep within
Such an awakening when I kiss you
Your lips ignite my soul
And as they do,
I want your hands to take over,
To be in control

Pulling me close
Swaying side to side
A taste of heaven starting with that mouth
Effortlessly catching me in your tide

Want your lips to be my tattoo
Have them here on my skin
Forever, forever laid bare...
With their own story to tell
Catching me in their spell
Oh, let the ink flow,
Oh, let the ink flow,
Let the ink flow
And take me there...

Your Lips, My Tattoo

It’s alive…
I can’t describe
It’s alive…

Galivants through my veins
Strikes chords on my soul
Beats big, bass drums, in my heart
Making melodies I can’t
& don’t wish to control

(Chorus)
It’s alive……
Music’s built a home within me
Can’t describe……
How this imposter makes me feel
It’s alive…..

Creeps up along my spine
Setting shivers upon my skin
Taps tantalising tunes, in my ears
Recordings I don’t wanna let out,
just keep within

(Chorus)
It’s alive……
Music’s built a home within me
Can’t describe……
How this imposter makes me feel
It’s alive…..

Emotional solos weaved in my hair
Notes exploding outta my eyes
An amazing artist at work
An unpredictive rhythm,
but I crave the surprise

(Chorus)
It’s alive……
Music’s built a home within me
Can’t describe……
How this imposter makes me feel
It’s alive…..

(option to repeat 1st verse)
Galivants through my veins
Strikes chords on my soul
Beats big, bass drums, in my heart
Making melodies I can’t
& don’t wish to control

(Chorus)
It’s alive……
Music’s built a home within me
Can’t describe……
How this imposter makes me feel
It’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive……

It's Alive

It’s always there….
A constant reminder
Of things that haven’t been done
Broken yesterdays
To be started tomorrows
But also
stolen minutes of fun

The key with no home
Batteries in or out of life
The safety pin that can hold it
all together
In moments of strife

(Chorus)
For that,
the forgotten balloons
and more….
Fill up to the brim
My messy drawer
My messy drawer
All the secrets, it holds within
My messy drawer…

It reflects a space…
Inside my mind
That’s a little cluttered & lost
The, I must do’s
The, it’d be nice to do
Form a list, waiting to be crossed

The key with no home
Batteries in or out of life
The safety pin that can hold it
all together
In moments of strife

(Chorus)
For that,
the forgotten balloons
and more….
Fill up to the brim
My messy drawer
My messy drawer
All the secrets, it holds within
My messy drawer…

For the occasional sort…
An attempted robbery
Then yeh I’ve done at least one
But it’s the “I’ll take it all”
Whatever you want
The only place that never says “done”

The key with no home
Batteries in or out of life
The safety pin that can hold it
all together
In moments of strife

(Chorus)
For that,
the forgotten balloons
and more….
Fill up to the brim
My messy drawer
My messy drawer
All the secrets, it holds within
My messy drawer…

Messy Drawer

Don’t walk, don’t run
Don’t talk, don’t fun
Don’t laugh, don’t cry
Don’t live, don’t die

(Chorus)
Don’t, don’t, don’t,
That’s all we hear
Let’s escape these chains
And break outta here
Break outta here
Break out
Of
Here

Don’t drink, don’t eat
Don’t post, don’t tweet
Don’t sleep, don’t wake
Don’t love, don’t make

(Chorus)
Don’t, don’t, don’t,
That’s all we hear
Let’s escape these chains
And break outta here
Break outta here
Break out
Of
Here


Don’t shine, don’t dim
Don’t like her, don’t like him
Don’t stop, don’t start
Don’t stay, don’t part

(Chorus)
Don’t, don’t, don’t,
That’s all we hear
Let’s escape these chains
And break outta here
Break outta here
Break out
Of
Here

Let’s take back control
Let’s show’em how it’s done
Freed from their cuffs
We’ll be second to none

(Chorus)
No, no, no
That’s what we’ll cheer
Escaping their chains
And breaking outta here
Breaking outta here
Breaking outta here
Breaking out
Of
Here….

Don't

They say don’t stand straight,
Don’t hold your head high
Don’t sway your hips
Let your smile die
They control, they freeze, they sink not fly

But they’re not winning, not tonight
I say not tonight, not tonight

(Chorus)
There are demons in my mind
But they won’t capture my soul
No way down for them
Won’t take a hold
I’m locking it down,
I’m pushing it down deep
For my soul’s staying strong,
It’s for keeps

They always shout hide
They always scream no
Don’t ask for help
No friends just foe
They seize, they grab, they arrest not flow

But they’re not winning, not tonight
I say not tonight, not tonight

(Chorus)
There are demons in my mind
But they won’t capture my soul
No way down for them
They won’t take a hold
I’m locking it down,
I’m pushing it down deep
For my soul’s staying strong,
It’s for keeps

They demand more stress
They feed on heat
Don’t try to run
No truth just cheat
They crash, they burn, they boom not beat

But they’re not winning, not tonight
I say not tonight, not tonight

(Chorus)
There are demons in my mind
But they won’t capture my soul
No way down for them
They won’t take a hold
I’m locking it down,
I’m pushing it down deep
For my soul’s staying strong,
It’s for keeps
I say it’s for keeps
I’m pushing it down deep
For my soul’s saying strong
It’s for keeeeps

Soul's for Keeps

I keep on picking myself up,
off the floor
As you keep on walking, walking, walking
out that door

It hurts too much yet I can’t let go
Your words penetrate me deep
like a poisoned arrow
But with one sorry and it won’t happen again
There I am ready
for a whole, lot more pain

(Chorus)
It’s those invisible cuffs
that lock my heart to you
They cut real tight
but I ignore, push through
Why no key
Why no release
Why no goodbyes
It’s over and you gotta leave

I just smile
from left to right
Whilst you just push, push, push
to retain this fight

The pain is deep yet I seal it up
And come back for more
from your poisoned cup
And this tour de pain has no end in sight
I should be letting go
but just hold on tight

(Chorus)
It’s those invisible cuffs
that lock my heart to you
They cut real tight
but I ignore, push through
Why no key
Why no release
Why no goodbyes
It’s over and you gotta leave

(Repeat Chorus)
It’s those invisible cuffs
that lock my heart to you
They cut real tight
but I ignore, push through
Why no key
Why no release
Why no goodbyes
It’s over and you gotta leave…

Trapped

I know you came along, for me
Supporting, all the way
But I got you didn’t want to be there
How you held yourself
Polite chats, nods & smiles
And the “I don’t belong,” tattooed right across your face

But it was me
Always me
Who felt completely out of place
(Chorus)
They weren’t, my crowd
Didn’t get me the way, you did
Tried to stroke, my ego
But couldn’t push the buttons, like you
Thanks for being on my arm
Thanks for being my beau
Thanks for being my other half
I wish I’d told you so

So many nights you had my back
Backing me, all the way
But I knew it wasn’t you
The empty hello’s & nice to meets
Dancing in my shadow
And the “I don’t belong,” tattooed right across your face

But it was me
Always me
Who felt completely out of place

(Chorus)
They weren’t, my crowd
Didn’t get me the way, you did
Tried to stroke, my ego
But couldn’t push the buttons, like you
Thanks for being on my arm
Thanks for being my beau
Thanks for being my other half
I wish I’d told you so

(Bridge)
You were always there
Showing up, putting up
And doing right by me
Not belonging, not enjoying
Yet still there, right by me
But I shouldn’t have been there
Should have been with you, just you
Being me through & through
I wish I’d told
I wish you knew
There was only
Only, ever you

(Chorus)
They weren’t, my crowd
Didn’t get me the way, you did
Tried to stroke, my ego
But couldn’t push the buttons, like you
Thanks for being on my arm
Thanks for being my beau
Thanks for being my other half
I wish
Oh how I wish
I’d told you so

I Wish I'd Told You So

You put on an amazing show
For the whole world to see
But I see you,
With your glazed over eyes
They’re crystal clear to me,
Begging to be free

You see,
You’re like glass to me

(Chorus)
Don’t you realise
Don’t you see
Your lips might move
But I don’t just hear,
I see through
Your lies, your lies, your lies
You see
You’re like glass to me

You’re always window dressed
Staged perfectly just so
But I see you,
Through all the glitter
For me no art
Can cover up your woe

You see,
You’re like glass to me

(Chorus)
Don’t you realise
Don’t you see
Your lips might move
But I don’t just hear,
I see through
Your lies, your lies, your lies
You see
You’re like glass to me

You try and layer them up
You stain them even more
But I see you, every inch of pain
From the highest ceiling
To the falling floor

You see,
You’re like glass to me

(Chorus)
Don’t you realise
Don’t you see
Your lips might move
But I don’t just hear,
I see through
Your lies, your lies, your lies
You see
You’re like glass to me

(Bridge)
One day you’ll crack
But I won’t be here to cut and bleed
I just hope that when you do
You’ll finally be freed

You see,
You’re like glass to me

(Chorus)
Don’t you realise
Don’t you see
Your lips might move
But I don’t just hear,
I see through
Your lies, your lies, your lies
You see
You’re like glass to me
You’re like glass to me
You’re like glass to me……

You're Like Glass to Me

About Me

Bio

I've always loved the spoken and written word and the power of it to engage.

My lyrics are inspired by moments in life whether that's an experience or literally just hearing / seeing something, which then takes me on a journey with words. As such they work across the majority of writing styles from Pop to Country, fitting most in between.

I hope these words form connections for you, like they have for me and I believe with the right audio, my lyrics can make truly special songs.

Please check back regularly, for new lyrics, as the words just keep on coming!
