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.

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.

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

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.
