about

Imperfect Words is exactly that. Words from my life that are flawed and only the ones I’m learning as I go. They are the songs of my everyday; they come from that one time on the bus to work, or that time when my dreams felt more like a curse than a blessing.
This acoustic EP is as much of my personal experience as I could squeeze into four songs and another milestone on the way to my debut studio album. My audience for this musical journey will see a different side of me with each release. This is the acoustic side but it’s still me. Slowly I’m developing and growing as an artist with my own voice and I’m so very honoured that people are lending their ears to listen.

Track Name: Talk (Acoustic)
No Lie,
Words on my lips my tongue like,
stroking my ego, my pride
do it for me all the time.

Bone dry,
and water wont offer respite.
And nothing I say will rehydrate my desert soul to life.

Cause you can be trouble, I can be trouble, baby lets start the war
or you could be faithful, I will be humble, we do it like they did before.
Conversational, cards on the table, poker face out the door.
So make a decision, what’s your ambition, show me what you;’re good for.

Cause it is what it is
and there’s no need to talk about it
there’s no need to talk about it
there’s not need to talk about it, no.

Won’t do it, or you will but t
there’s no need to talk about it
there’s no need to talk about it
there’s not need to talk about it, no.

So done,
See my defenses all gone,
I’d rather be hurt than feel numb
So hit me with it love come on, come on
Oh my, run for the hills or don’t cry
But if you want this I’ll oblige
We could be worth the fight.

If this is for you, you know who you are, you know what to do.
If this is for you, you know who you are, you know what to do. Oh, Oh.
If this is for you, you know who you are, you know what to do.
I said if this is for you, you know who you are, you know what to do.
Track Name: Northern Lights (Acoustic)
Northern Lights
A secret mark, is on your face
And there is no way to hide it
I stood my ground
You took your place
As all our senses divided


Pre- Chorus
Now I see you only ever wanted to fall in love with me.
Make me part of the fantasy
I've always been afraid to dream.


Chorus
And you said 'Oh, let's
Climb out of the valley one more time,
Oh, there's meant to be good weather,
But in case, I've my umbrella and
The view is so much better from up high,
We can still catch the Northern Lights.'

Verse 2
The past is dead, the war is gone
We have the scars and the glory
Of stories told, told to the young
Throughout the cold of december


Pre-Chorus
Winter months, I think that possibly I have been
hiding some.
Feelings beneath the shadows of the winter sun
Well summer's just begun


Chorus
So I said 'Oh, let's
Climb out of the valley one more time,
Oh, there's meant to be good weather,
But in case, I've my umbrella and
The view is so much better from up high,
We can still catch the Northern Lights.'


Bridge
In time, time to look up and see the damage
done
Unwind, unharboured.
Now you're mine
And finally I sink into your love
Like wine, like water.


Chorus
And you said 'Oh, let's
Climb out of the valley one more time,
Oh, there's meant to be good weather,
But in case, I've my umbrella and
The view is so much better from up high,
We can still catch the Northern Lights.
Track Name: Know You (Acoustic)
Know You
Verse 1
You take one step
And I’ll take mine
You take two left
So I go right, see
You know the answer to
All of my questions, you
Don’t leave me hanging
Don’t keep my guessing

Pre-Chorus
So why, why, why,
Why do I keep on running,
This crazy life
When a home my heart has found I’ll

Chorus
Let your light shine bright on me love,
Won’t fight, I’ll take it up
Maybe it’s about time
That we stopped
Living our separate lives
Let your light shine bright and I think I’ll find
Another reason I cannot hide
From this strong leading I have it’s right.
That I’m getting to know you

Verse 2
Won’t hold my breath, if we capsize
No I don’t swim
I guess I’ll try to
To walk the water
To leave the dry land and
Ill flood the border
See the horizon

Pre-Chorus
So look outside
Cause I know this life is worth something
And let’s live right
Even though we came here with nothing

Chorus
Let your light shine bright on me love,
Wont fight, I’ll take it up
Maybe it’s about time
That we stopped
Living our separate lives
Let your light shine bright and I think I’ll find
Another reason I cannot hide
From this strong leading I have it’s right.
That I’m getting to know you

Bridge
And what do they call this love we’ve found
It’s called a good thing
Look at what we have now,
I think it’s called a good thing
So don’t rewind
Don’t fast forward
Just be home here
In this moment I’ll

Chorus
Let your light shine bright on me love,
Won’t fight, I’ll take it up
Maybe it’s about time
That we stopped
Living our separate lives
Let your light shine bright and I think I’ll find
Another reason I cannot hide
From this strong leading I have it’s right.
That I’m getting to know you
