Under the Radar

Understatement is a forgotten art
Now we each have a tale to impart
We’re all online doing show and tell
And status updates are a form of hell
Privacy has gone out of favour
But I enjoy flying under the radar


A mighty tree in the forest fell
But if no-one uploads it who can tell
We celebrate, with a toast
And share the photos like a boast
Privacy has gone out of favour
But I enjoy flying under the radar


Tagged old photos posted in jest
Can make us feel, …not the best
If you don’t want to pay that price
A bit of mystery all adds to the spice
Privacy has gone out of favour
But I enjoy flying under the radar

Understatement is a forgotten art
To speak to someone from the heart
Living life in all its glory
Enjoying the moment not the replay
Privacy has gone out of favour
But I enjoy flying under the radar.

Lyrics Sheena Hope
Simple slow-paced Ballad, slightly wistful sound.

Lyrics Sheena Hope

Simple slow-paced Ballad, slightly wistful sound.

UNDER THE RADAR

IF THE COLOUR FADES

We were together so long, it’s been an age
I should be bitter and full of rage
I loved you once, that can’t be all bad
My heart knows we’re over.…. It’s just Sad

Chorus

I’ll pull my respect around like a cloak
And bite back the words before they are spoke
You’re over the fence, I hope it is green
But If the colour fades, I’ll know you’ve been!!

You’ll regret us one day of that I am sure
After so long your timing was poor.
Unconditional love was my gift to you
But you enjoyed it so long you lost its value

I don’t believe we wasted our time
I touched your heart and you touched mine.
I had no say in the decision you made
But I can still choose to let love fade

I’m moving on, you’re starting again
I hope she’s worth it, enjoy your love den
I am cold and revenge is sweet
Cause I’m happy and you, I’ll never repeat




Lyrics by Sheena Hope

A thoughtful lyric, sad but also positive.
Female ballad, slow tempo, full sound especially at Chorus.

IF THE COLOUR FADES

SIMPLE

Life is simple really
A song can lift your heart
melody to stir the soul
words the tale impart
Life is simple really


Life is simple really
You can’t speed it up
Good things take time
No slowing it down
old age comes around.


Life is simple really
Slowly breathe it in
Slowly look around you
At all your kith and kin
Life is simple really.


Life is simple really
Love is what to crave
We may ignore it
we don’t always show it
but in the end we know it.


Life is simple really
It’s all about the links
That bind us together
Regardless of our feathers
Our links in the chain


Life is simple really
A song can lift your heart
melody to stir the soul
words the tale impart
Life is simple really

SLEEPWALKERS

Chorus

There’s been a seismic shift
It started with, what if
Now it’s, what the.. (fxxx)
Sleepwalkers please wake up.

There’s an earthquake on its way
Unless truth can hold sway
The ground feels a bit unsteady
But clasp hands, we’ll be ready

Vibrations rock the streets
with the boots of those we meet
And our peaceful demonstration’s
Are the truth of our declaration

We may be independent
But the tremors have extended
There’s Freedom in expression
We learnt that in a history lesson

There’s been a seismic shift
It started with, what if
Now it’s, what the….(fxxx)
Sleepwalkers please wake up.

Lyrics Sheena Hope

Sleepwalker

TODAY

Chorus
When Today becomes tomorrow
Remember time you cannot borrow
Don’t you dwell on possible strife
Cause right this minute is your life
--
When you listen, what will you hear
When you smile, what draws near
When you only give what’s asked
It’s harder for the love to last.
--
Chorus
--
When you talk, what will you say?
When you’re silent, is that ok?
When you hear a wonderful sound
Harmony improves the ground
--
Chorus
--
If you hate, don’t in haste! Cause
When you love, it’s never a waste
When there’s beauty all around
Try to treasure what you’ve found
--
When today becomes tomorrow
Remember time you cannot borrow
Don’t you dwell on possible strife
Cause right this minute is your life

Lyrics Sheena Hope

TODAY

FIZZY

Chorus

I feel bubbles of joy in my mind
I am fizzy with love
Fizzy, Fizzy with love
I don’t wanna keep these bubbles inside
I am fizzy, fizzy, fizzy with love
----
The fire was lit on our first night
I’m burning with a white hot light
I’m bubbling over and ready to pop
I don’t want these feelings ever to stop
-----
chorus

you’ve shaken me up, I’m ready to burst
These feelings of joy they are a first
I know I should be playing it cool
But I can’t stop smiling like a fool.
---
Chorus

I’ve got bubbles of joy in my heart
And I’ve felt them right from the start
I can’t worry, cause it seems so right
Please don’t burst my bubble tonight


Lyrics Sheena Hope
Notes
( I thought this could be female vocal , upbeat pop sound)

FIZZY

CHORUS

I smell the coffee every time I awake
And know for sure that we’re not a mistake
life is beautiful when we are entwined
And with our bodies, love is defined

----
Oh we are linked by an invisible pull
And my head will always let my heart rule
You know every inch of this skin of mine
Our lips speak magic when they combine
----

I’ve wanted you since the day we met
we’re so different but I don’t fret
Even if we don’t speak for a while
I always look forward to that slow smile
------

hearts beat fast and breaths combine
That’s how I know you will always be mine
No escaping the power of this tide
Each ebb and flow mean’s less place to hide
---
Chorus

Lyrics Sheena Hope

ENTWINED

I Never Understood

Chorus

Look at the successful life I have made
And all of the memories that I have saved
I know I shouldn’t wonder, times are good
But why did you leave me? I never understood.


Time it is funny, it stretches and bends
the perceptions of history to our own ends
No one ever wants to talk about you
So why am I drawn to seek what is true

I think it is normal to question the past
Why some things change? why some things last
I try to forget my memories of you
So why does the forgetting make me feel blue


Do you think of me often, do I cross your mind
I’m petrified of the answer I might find
So I’ll continue my life, I wish you no ill
And I’ll think of you sometimes in the still
