about

I've been writing songs for nearly 10 years.

When I realised that I started to think about all the things I have ever written about. I came up with this list:

Growing up, feeling lonely, ex boyfriends and the weather.

I wanted to try and capture all of these things in a song and also speak to the people I love now about why I find it hard to say things sometimes, even though words are supposed to be my weapon of choice.

lyrics

They said it would rain today, but the sun shone
You said that you'd stay today, but you're long gone.
I said that I'd hold your hand, but I let go,
We say a lot of things when we don't know

That times, they change
And faces age.

Uh oh love is a strong word,
Where all the lines blurred,
I'll try to write you a song first.
Uh oh love is a strong word,
Love from your little Songbird,
Your little Songbird

They said it would rain today, and we're soaked through
Running for shelter in my new shoes.
Looking for comfort on a bad day,
Three words can make it ok.

When times, they change,
Places always seem to stay the same.

Uh oh love is a strong word,
Where all the lines blurred,
I'll try to write you a song first.
Uh oh love is a strong word,
Love from your little Songbird,
Your little Songbird

I wasn't brave enough to tell you how I feel.
I wrote it all down once and pretended it was real.
Just because you can see right through me when I sing.
I'm just a book of words and six strings.

Uh oh love is a strong word,
Where all the lines blurred,
I'll try to write you a song first.
Uh oh love is a strong word,
Love from your little Songbird,
Your little Songbird.
