Oh my, oh my watch is broken, the words unspoken And time keeps pouring out. All my, all my feelings fleeting, the clock is leaking And I can’t slow it down. Two years I don’t belong here, I get along here, Silence is my friend. They watch as I pretend that I’m like them, Gossip, fashion trends. I can’t be me anywhere there’s not music in the air, I can’t pretend to care about these things That make no difference to me. What about originality? Can I be me? My soul is longing for something more than, More than, more than, Body deficient of something, I need more than. More than, more than, more than. I need more than, I want more than, More than, more than this. The spokes of the wheel are blurring, the fire burning And I can’t put it out. The air of a song is stirring, the lines are curving, The words they fall right out. I can’t be me anywhere there’s not music in the air, I can’t pretend to care about these things That make no difference to me. What about originality? Can I be me? My soul is longing for something more than, More than, more than, Body deficient of something, I need more than. More than, more than, more than. I want more than, I need more than, More than, more than this. Doesn’t matter, oh it doesn’t matter no. Gotta work hard, gotta do what I’m told. Gotta be smart, don’t wanna be broke. Doesn’t matter, oh it doesn’t matter no. Gotta work hard, gotta do what I’m told. Gotta be smart, I wanna be - More than, more than this.

In My Head 03:29
Why you’re in my head, you’re in my head Why you’re in my head, why you’re in my head I don’t want your lullabies in my head Want your lullabies, why you’re in my head Pick up my phone, put it down, check it twice Only heard from you once, not again ‘til last night Now you’re looking at me like I’m all that you want Tryin’a sell me the lies that I’ve already bought You knew how to play it, I wanna know Why you’re in my head, you’re in my head Why you’re in my head, why you’re in my head I don’t want your lullabies in my head Want your lullabies, why you’re in my head Just leave me alone. Just leave me alone Pick up my phone, put it down, check it twice Only heard from you once, not again ‘til last night Now you’re looking at me like I’m all that you want Tryin’a sell me the lies that I’ve already bought You knew how to play it Now I’m feeling bad since the night that we talked When you clearly were right and I clearly was wrong ‘Cause I looked in your eyes and I truly believed what I saw You knew how to play me. I wanna know Why you’re in my head, you’re in my head Why you’re in my head, why you’re in my head I don’t want your lullabies in my head Want your lullabies, why you’re in my head Just leave me alone, stop doing what you’re doing to me Leave me alone, stop doing what you’re doing Leave me alone, stop doing what you’re doing to me Leave me alone Why you’re in my head, ooh (x2) Why you’re in my head, you’re in my head Why you’re in my head, why you’re in my head I don’t want your lullabies in my head Want your lullabies, why you’re in my head Just leave me alone, stop doing what you’re doing to me Leave me alone, stop doing what you’re doing Leave me alone, stop doing what you’re doing to me Leave me alone

Living in a dream, I still think I’m seventeen and I can’t grow up. I don’t want to ‘cause It’s kinda suiting me, making you my in-between and it’s not my fault I don’t know enough. I won’t keep you close, won’t let you go, I just need to know you’ll hold onto hope, Hold onto hope. And I would have ran to you if I wasn’t scared. Make my heart start, head stop, come over and pick you up baby if I cared. Oh I would have ran to you if I wasn’t scared. Won’t you love me anyway? Promise there would come a day, baby I’d be there, If I wasn’t scared. If I wasn’t scared, if I wasn’t scared. Don’t you know, what I didn’t do, I didn’t have to? Don’t you know, what you didn’t say was what you had to? I am in-between man, in-between land’s where I am, And if you come on over here then that is what you’ll have. I won’t keep you close, won’t let you go, I just need to know you’ll hold onto hope, Hold onto hope. And I would have ran to you if I wasn’t scared. Make my heart start, head stop, come over and pick you up baby if I cared. Oh I would have ran to you if I wasn’t scared. Won’t you love me anyway? Promise there would come a day, baby I’d be there, If I wasn’t scared. If I wasn’t scared, if I wasn’t scared. Hold onto, hold onto hope, Hold onto, hold onto hope, I am in-between man in-between lands, And I would have ran to you if I wasn’t scared. Make my heart start, head stop, come over and pick you up baby if I cared. Oh I would have ran to you if I wasn’t scared. Won’t you love me anyway? Promise there would come a day, baby I’d be there, If I wasn’t scared, if I wasn’t scared, if I wasn’t scared, if I wasn’t scared, If I wasn’t scared, if I wasn’t scared, Oh, oh, oh-oh.

Polite 03:49
I'm out in town tonight And this band's really good You lock your eyes to mine And now I am stuck It's like you started talking yesterday Just tryin'a find a nice way to escape My friends are standing at the bar My eyes are rolling in my head I'm just tryin'a be polite I'm just trying to be nice Don't mean I wanna spend my night Listening to you talk about your life I, I, I I, I, I Picasso paints his picture Thousands of words, I can't belive it's taking This long to be heard Time's moving so slowly Since you began your story It's surely old I'm growing My friends are standing at the bar My eyes are rolling in my head You're selfish and wasting my time And you think I'm lapping up your lies but I just wanna dance Wanna feel the music Don't want a guy like you Comin' round to ruin it I just wanna sway Wanna let my hair down Don't try to kill my groove Please go over there now. I'm just tryin'a be polite I'm just trying to be nice Don't mean I wanna spend my night Listening to you talk about your life I, I, I I, I, I I, I, I I, I, I I wanna be free I wanna Wanna feel the breeze I just wanna dance Wanna feel the music Don't want a guy like you Comin' round to ruin it I just wanna sway Wanna let my hair down Don't try to kill my groove Please go over there now I'm just tryin'a be polite I'm just trying to be nice Don't mean I wanna spend my night Listening to you talk about your life I, I, I I, I, I I, I, I I, I, I I wanna be free I wanna Wanna feel the breeze I just wanna dance I just wanna dance

Low Supply 03:55
When will you ever learn I'm not the one you're tryin'a hurt Why can't you ever see You hurt yourself whenever you hurt me And I stand by Until the storm is over And with no one left to fight You're faced with a lonely mirror And this can never happen twice I have tried with all my might And now I'm of low supply The changing winds are fuelling me Finally have the strength to see This friendship is bad for me You're bad for me Down by the stormy sea The cold and salty air, it sings to me This is something you don't need Only say the word and you are free No I won't stand by The salt in my wound's on fire I've stood by you all these years Now all that I am is tired The changing winds are fuelling me Finally have the strength to see This friendship is bad for me And this can never happeen twice I have tried with all my might And now I'm of low supply Supply Supply When I was in my hour of need Stitches breaking at the seams I was still right there for you But you were never there for me The changing winds are fuelling me Finally have the strength to see This friendship is bad for me And this can never happen twice I have tried with all my might And now I'm of low supply Supply Supply

Burying 04:03
Tell me that you really care But you're talking to a lit up square Different versions of reality You don't understand the things That mean something to me And you're always giving me advice As if I can't see with my own two eyes Mending my views on the world's affairs Because clearly I'm too unaware Mister bigshot what you wanna fight about next It's a fine line, you're a million miles from it Mister headstrong why don't I just tell you a lie Tell you I'm wrong, tell you that you are right Oh you were right I can see I'm losing this fight I don't feel the need to be right Don't you know I've given up hope Oh I'm burying, burying, burying Burying my head I can see I'm losing this fight I don't feel the need to be right Don't you know I've given up hope Oh I'm burying, burying, burying Burying my head in the sand Burying, burying Burying my head in the sand Burying, burying Hard to know if you can hear If you can see me standing here You're too busy looking in a mirror Can't you see I've given in What's the point in arguing It isn't gonna make it any clearer What's your game, what you come for I don't wanna be ignored There's a sweeter side, just to make it alright Oh well okay fine, I'll be back like the tide It's a sweetness, such an incompleteness Weather to my water is you I can see I'm losing this fight I don't feel the need to be right Don't you know I've given up hope Oh I'm burying, burying, burying Burying my head I can see I'm losing this fight I don't feel the need to be right Don't you know I've given up hope Oh I'm burying, burying, burying Burying my head in the I can see I'm losing this fight I don't feel the need to be right Don't you know I've given up hope Oh I'm burying, burying, burying Burying my head I can see I'm losing this fight I don't feel the need to be right Don't you know I've given up hope Oh I'm burying, burying, burying Burying my head in the sand Burying, burying Burying my head in the sand Burying, burying Sand, burying, burying Sand, burying, burying

about

The theme of my debut album grew from my song 'Hide'. I've always held other people's opinions above my own and let fear hold me back both in music and in life. This album embodies the fallout and the resolutions that stemmed from this into many facets of my life.

A loud theme that has been reinforced since the album's inception; the entire process of making 'Hide' in itself, has forced me to trust my gut and to honour my vision. '..From now on I won't hide.'
