I'm always in my bubble for 17 years been classroom's clown, always had good jokes My friends were stick around, they loved to hang out with me But my mind was so busy to think the stuff that made them pleased Til puberty hits, I felt so lost I hated everyone, and just wanted to be alone My friends thought I was trying hard to act that I am cool So they left me all alone until I felt I've been their tool I just want to be loved like everybody else But people will find someone who is better than myself Why do I always try so hard to feel that I am enough While hope is far to find so I guess I'm never loved I lost my funny side during high school year, could not talk at all, people thought I was weird Thank god, I had my cousin who was always there with me When high school was a bitch, she helped me through it easily Until oh mah god, she found a new friend They got along so fast and it was so scary I thought she only told me all the secrets that she had But now she only tells her friend whenever she is feeling sad I used to miss my brother all the time, Used to cry alone, whenever I'm home Even though I've changed a lot when I grew up a lil bit But my brother never cares, he never told me how to fit I'm in college now, I've met a girl She's older than me, but she's so carefree I've learned so much from her and she gave me a glimpse of hope that it's not so far to find so I guess I will be loved I'm never loved Guess I will be loved I just don't want to be replaced by someone better. I constantly feel like I'm nobody like I am a book at a house party. as I sink into a state of sadness or anxiety ... She always counts on me so I feel like I am somebody

Be Still and Know written and performed by Father Patrick Dolan I am the Alpha and Omega, Who is and is to be. Eternal Rest for all the weary. a truth to set hearts free So be still and know that I am God I will fill your heart and show I am your God Beyond sin, start again. Let the Spirit enter in and so begin to know your God. Before you came to be, I knew you. I called you into breath. No power can ever take me from you; no grief, nor pain, not death. So be still… So many smaller voices call you through every storm that shakes the soul. Amidst the sorrows that befall you let me share with you a peace to make you whole. So be still…
A song from Ian McNabb's forthcoming album Utopian. Order here: www.ianmcnabb.com Swiss Army Knife Of Fuerteventura, pressed to my chest, the quest for the curer, marshal your pawns on the lawns where the fawns, run and play as the day has its way... Swiss Army Knife Of Fuerteventura, memories blessed and washed until purer, so sweet the taste that we waste made in haste, where a princess evolved from a dream still unseen, sailor, steer me to the siren's call, jailor free the guiltless, pardon all, Swiss Army Knife Of Fuerteventura, golden, the dawn, the stoic endurer, cast in the fires where the liars were inspired now fall tired, though still wired, from the prayers you sent, Swiss Army Knife Of Fuerteventura, come home today, please reassure her, far from the noise, still her poise, and her grace, and her face, at her place where the future blooms, Starlight, yes I see more life before me, burn bright, bring the weak and hurt before me, fly right, make my enemy adore me, take flight, heave away boys, heave away, heave away, heave away, heave away.... Swiss Army Knife Of Fuerteventura, Swiss Army Knife Of Fuerteventura... Written by R.I. McNabb. Published by Peermusic (UK) Ltd.
I've never put more of my heart into a musical project. Some of these songs are reflections of emotions we all go through. Some of these songs are stories I felt compelled to write. I hope in some way they touch your mind and heart. Lyrics: Sometimes life, falls apart sometimes you feel useless Sometimes friends, let you down fucked up with excuses That’s okay, we’re all lost trying to find some answers Take a breath, don’t walk away make new circumstances Breathe, take some time to think Take some time to think It’s been backing you up to the wall It’s been pushing you to the brink Breathe you will find the truth You will find a way Don’t be thinking about the past Just focus on life today Sometimes feel you’ve lost the most Sometimes feel like a ghost Life can come so heavily For everyone Empathy It’s not so bad you know Everything comes Everything goes This is a wave, this is a flux Sometimes we pour from empty cups Sometimes sun won’t rise Sometimes caught in the lies Weight on the mind all day Drink just to feel okay When’s it gonna be okay That is not you This is you now Screams in your head Screams out loud You are alive Soak it in Sun comes up Breathe again Sometimes life, falls apart sometimes you feel useless Sometimes friends, let you down fucked up with excuses That’s okay, we’re all lost trying to find some answers Take a breath, don’t walk away make new circumstances Look at your soul every part Follow the wave Follow your heart You are a beautiful broken mind A work of art A piece of time It can be hard to carry on Some of us here some of us gone Wading through the streams of time Steady slope, steep decline Sometimes letting go can make the most sense Trying to be alone, you’re feeling so tense Step back try to find focus There are times we all feel hopeless Forgive yourself Forgive your friends Open your eyes Let it in Let it in Let it in Sometimes life, falls apart sometimes you feel useless Sometimes friends, let you down fucked up with excuses That’s okay, we’re all lost trying to find some answers Take a breath, don’t walk away make new circumstances Night comes slow Fall apart fall to the floor Birds outside Sounds of the wind Sounds at the door How many days gone by How many days asleep I don’t want to say goodbye I don’t want to take that leap You can learn from your mistakes You can mend You can break You will love You will lose Make a path You must choose It’s a gift It can change It can hurt Or feels strange You’re not alone You can feel This is real Sometimes life, falls apart sometimes you feel useless Sometimes friends, let you down fucked up with excuses That’s okay, we’re all lost trying to find some answers Take a breath, don’t walk away make new circumstances This is life
This song is dedicated to one of my best friends. A fascinating person, but one who is permanently under the pressure of electricity, driven by a burning desire for deep inner peace and yet constantly restlessly searching. In one of our intensive conversations he said about himself: "My longing is holding me tight". - And in this way the title of this song was born. Yesterday he called me and said: “Karl, the Corona crisis is terrible on the one hand. It creates a lot of illness, financial threats and, due to the increasing restrictions on the exit, possibly an escalation of violence. On the other hand, the rapid disruption of everything that has been my daily habits forces me to face more of the three basic questions of life that I have been running away from so often: Who am I really? How do I want to shape the relationship with my loved ones?And: What place do I basically want to take in society and the world?” And then something happened that I had not known about him before: He paused, and there was a pleasant silence on the phone line. Finally he said: "You might be surprised; with all the shit that Corona brings with it, the forced deceleration associated with it does me a tremendous amount of good. I finally get a little bit of that inner peace I've always longed for.” Maybe this little monologue of my friend will help all those who are struck with the Corona crisis (...and therefore me, too) to see in this current "world tsunami" also a chance for profound change... My longing is holding me tight I am so drunk again. Have just drained the whole Wissky The Corrupting Scoundrels Stand with me in a “fake flirtation” My soul full of holes Uninhabited and unfournished My hands on endless search after a drop From the sea of love far away from me The meadows in me full of scars The skies inside me: Starless The garish colours have been melted away The once so wet womb is almost dried out My Longing is holding me tight Holding me tight Alwas played for my life Often I begged the moon To float free for a second For a moment, that happiness invites me Used to sleep in tall trees Built myself deep caves there Sought peace among grazing sheeps Confided in healers and gurus Inside me the murmur of the graves The sound of the demons howling I'm eternally put off till later Been fooled so many times by a will-o'-the-wisp My Longing is holding me tight Holding me tight
[this is a very early demo, ik it sounds pretty rough but its a work in progress] you’re not the person that i knew its killing me but i wonder what happened to you did he change you rearrange you your body language doesn’t seem to match your mood i stole your car again but it hurt me more than it hurt you in the end you ran up the mileage of trust and the miles of love that we said we wouldn’t forget i still smell the cigarette smoke on the hoodies you stole from my closet back in march i tried everything to get the smell out of my clothes and out of my fucking mind you stabbed me in my chest but it felt so good just to feel your touch again i lay my head on the concrete cuz you brought me to my knees you’re not the person that i knew its killing me but i wonder what happened to you did he change you rearrange you your body language doesn’t seem to match your mood
This is a song performed on piano, vocals by brother and sister with accompanying harmonies. A song co-written with open meaning that has themes of the brevity of family life and a celebration of reunion.
A cover of Around, originally performed by NIKI. It's all hers, none of it is owned by me- I just enjoyed singing this a whole lot! "Quarantine made me do things, and by things, I mean an actual cover after 2 whole years!! I covered NIKI’s “Around,” and while her version is solidly grounded in piano with a flavour of maturity, I ended up producing a ~dreamier~ version, while trying to maintain some of the original emotionality. This time I wanted to work on a few things- 1. oversinging- I’ve always enjoyed working on runs and stuff but I wanted to learn how to balance that with just smooth, plain melody. I also avoid/ feel uncomfortable using falsetto, but this time around, there’s a part that I had to sing in falsetto, and I’m hoping to grow more accustomed to that too! 2. relying too much on harmonies- they just sound so cool! But I wanted to try something different this time, and just layered one or two alternate melodies, almost like ad-libs, instead of traditional harmonies. 3. always using my guitar- this is the first time I’ve used just software production for something, without any support from the one instrument I know a bit of and use too much of, and it’s been exciting but nerve-wracking. It’s not great, but it’s a beginning I hope!! Lemme know what y’all think- any kind of feedback would mean so much to me! Do go listen to the original, there’s no voice like NIKI’s. (Also yes, the cover art is me poorly photoshopped onto the view from my dorm room at Chicago- passably artsy, but also kinda like a zoom backdrop - because I had nothing better and I miss college terribly)"

Ever so thankful to work with the amazing Nic Evennett on this song. Her talent is special and I strongly recommend you listen to more of her wonderful work https://soundcloud.com/wingless-night Whispers The upside We're in this together. My ally, Faring the weather. Mistaking The wicked for the wise, They're shaking The thunder from the skies. I worry, I worry... Is that the wind in the tree? The swaying, Is she waving goodbye to me? Oh darling, Cradle my fears, They're pooling Under my head. You'll surely listen, you'll surely listen now, Whispers tell you everything. She's waiting For sorrys on the breeze. The sun is sore, The rain is hard to please, The silvergrass Is curling around me, Forgiving, And soft on my feet. You'll surely listen, you'll surely listen now. Whispers tell you everything. (lyrics by Nic Evennett)

Rolas express de las que escribo en 5 minutos sobre lo triste que estoy. Letra: Once I tried to Pull it off my mind Going crazy My eyes were going blind And now it cuts on deep To think, to sleep To wake up to an empty sheet I’m sick, I’m ill I’m running out of pills Let me, dare me I am tired Of getting sad Of feeling pain Of bleeding out I am lonely And it gets bad And it feels plain It makes me doubt Sometimes I dream You are next to me I wake up to your sea Those aren’t the eyes I remember to see And I wrote 100 songs about you The tingly touch that you blew Every time you made me cry I can forget Every single shed tear If you promise to come back
i owe this song to miss corona first time recording on my ownsome lonesome so take it easy on me ! stay safe out there partners
Terry Reeves: Lead Vocals, Ukelele Hans Albers: All instruments, Backing Vocals, Arrangement, Production & Final Mix This song is based on an interesting conflict that occurred between an urban young vixen and my daughter who came face to face in our back garden. Both of them seemed to object to sharing what I thought was a fairly large space and each time my daughter opened the back door the fox appeared. This went on for some time until my daughter stated that she would not go into the garden until the fox had gone and continually moaned about the situation at every opportunity. She kept telling me about the fox, I think expecting her Dad (me) to do something about it but every time I went in to the back garden the vixen would disappear. It became a major intrusion of her personal space and she was not happy. On Christmas Day 2015 I decided that I should, as far as the fox situation was concerned, try and help my daughter’s confidence and said that I wanted to take some festive pictures at the bottom of the garden. I recorded the whole event on camera but I am not sure that it helped. In retrospect, maybe dressing my son Daniel as a fox wasn't the wisest way of achieving this... If you'd like to see the video, here's the link: https://youtu.be/thhGdLUACEg Hans took what was a simple, three chord uke song and turned it into this wonderful thing, as he always seems to do. That man is a truly extraordinary talent. He also put together the video from the one and a half minutes worth of footage we took, so it seems there really is nothing he cannot do... (Terry Reeves) Chorus: The Fox is coming to town The Fox is coming to town. The Fox is taking over She has a dominating stare The eyes shine like lasers Her teeth so sharp to scare Chorus The Fox is taking over She wants to occupy my space Every movement getting closer Soon be standing face to face Chorus The Fox is taking over I must get my tactics right Stand and face her eye to eye Getting ready for the fight Chorus The Fox is taking over I will pretend to be really scared There can be only one winner And she'll be the one who's red Chorus The Fox is taking over I haven't seen her for a while I now stand in a different place I think it really suits my style Chorus (Repeat)
Do pořadu Kapely za zenitem nám desítky různých uskupení zaslaly své písně. Z nich hudební redakce Radia Tuleň vybrala jednu jedinou, kterou se rozhodla pustit do etéru. Je to píseň z chystaného alba skupiny Kopec šišek, která kdysi psala encyklopedii pražského death-folku a poslední léta stagnuje někde na pomezí post-existence a posmrtných škubů. Podle aktuálních informací redakce se přesto chystá vydat po dvanácti letech své existence své první a poslední album, z kterého pochází právě tato píseň s názvem Činžovní dům.
feel like i spent so many days tryna find the right way but i'm convinced it doesn't exist and i think my parents were full of shit what's wrong with stealing from the thief? what's right with paying someone so i can live and breathe and you say that's just how it goes my angry words catch in my throat cause it will burn down and i can't stay here there's no where to go now and i just want to disappear how can they live in a world so mean stained by my ancestors, just to fuel their greed i'm so freaking disjunct with my place in time and in my mind i don't know how it could be fine what's wrong with stealing from the thief? what's right with working hard just to hide the heart on my sleeve you say that that's just how it goes my shaky words catch in my throat cause it will burn down and i can't stay here there's no where to go now and i just want to disappear we all want to disappear we all want to disappear, ou! cause it will burn down and i can't stay here there's no where to go now and i just want to disappear and we just want to disappear. // destroy settler capitalism
I wrote this song the day after Brad Delp and Bill Chinnock ended their own lives, within hours of each other. Two extremely talented musicians, who left treasure chests of great music in their legacies. I'll never judge those who choose that most difficult path, but I also strongly believe there are alternative answers, and possibly, other pathways, at the end of a most desperate and lonely road.
