Verse 1:
Hearts, hearts uniting
So, enticing
that extra bit inviting
Fantasy, fast becoming reality
Saved me from dilemma, your personal Cinderella
Fairy-tale unveiling
Absurdity in the making
Soon to see, all the trickery
Just another form of slavery

Chorus:
Let me beeeee
Your emotional amputee
A merchant, for your disdain
Let me beeeee
Your suffareeeee
A peddler, of your pain
Ohhhhhhh empathy, what’ve you done to me?
Ohhhhhhh empathy, why’ve you betrayed me?
Ohhhhhh empathy What I’d give to be, free from your vanity

Verse 2:
Worlds, worlds colliding
We become, torn, torn and dividing
Nightmare soon to be, eventually
a disaster in the making
Glass slipper found; only to be palace bound
Princely illusion now all a delusion
White horse, run its course
Break me free from this captivity

Chorus:
Let me beeeee
Your emotional amputee
A merchant, for your disdain
Let me beeeee
Your suffareeeee
A peddler, of your pain
Ohhhhhhh empathy, what’ve you done to me?
Ohhhhhhh empathy, why’ve you betrayed me?
Ohhhhhh empathy What I’d give to be, free from your vanity
Ohhhhhh empathy
Ohhhhhh empathy
Ohhhhhh empathy

Empathy

Verse 1:
She wears flowers in her hair
Draws unwanted attention everywhere
Gives no care, for any stare
Willow if you dare

Verse 2:
She scratch’s bare to the bones
Poetic in her poems
Will tear apart your dreams, at the seams
Willow if you dare

Chorus:
She, belongs everywhere and nowhere
believes in nothing and everything.
Full of airs and grace, enticing face
Willow she don’t care
She’s snared, snared, caught up
tangled in her own hair

Verse 3:
She will lay you down to the ground
Briefly kiss your soul
While she steals your gold
Willow if you dare

Verse 4:
Finished telling her told story
She takes all the second-hand glory
She now just ignores me
Willow if you dare

Chorus:
She, belongs everywhere and nowhere
believes in nothing and everything.
Full of airs and grace, enticing face
Willow she don’t care
She’s snared, snared, caught up
tangled in her own hair

About Me

Bio

My lyrics offer strong hooks and imagery, to try reignite the power and importance of storytelling in music.

I write lyrics based on my own real-life experiences.I prefer to not reveal the person or experience I write about. I do not wish to influence the musician with my backstory. Instead, allow the musician to leverage off their own experience, and write a melody based on what feelings the lyrics evoke ...

CV/History

I feel lyrics in the music industry (and by some musicians) are really undervalued these days.

I really want to try influence how people in this industry see lyrics as I do, emotional currency....

I want to highlight the importance of lyrics, much like how poetry once influenced storytelling, or how slave song influenced today’s modern lyric music, or how Neil Young and Bob Dylan wrote vivid stories into their songs, that still today are timeless.

I got into writing lyrics accidentally, one part why I did, was because many of the songs these days... the lyrics don’t speak to me on a deep level. They have nice melodies, but those songs that used to get stuck in my head, are happening less and less.

I feel that words with emotional weight are needed now more than ever in songs, to capture people’s “2 minute attention span”, that’s being created by social media.

I feel strong lyrics as a base, combined with a good melody can make a very powerful song and leave a bigger impact on the listener.

A lot of musicians don’t seem to focus that much on lyrics, they tend to mostly focus on the melody and fill in empty lyrics to fit the tune... making a strong sound but less emotional impact.

Lyrics with strong imagery really gets that “song stuck” in your head impact.. Some of the best music in the world comes from a strong lyric writer combined with a good musician; such duos like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (Rolling Stones), John Lennon and Paul McCartney (The Beatles) and Billie Eilish and Finneas Baird O'Connell.

I really want to try and get musicians and those in the music industry, to see that lyrics can be very powerful especially when combined with a melody...

I want to challenge musicians in how they see lyrics....

I want to use lyrics to make the musician feel something inside first, so they write a melody from an experience my story provokes inside of them, that fits that feeling they have...instead of the musician writing a pretty melody, and trying to fit empty words into it.
