about

These are the songs that I wrote as part of February Album Writing Month in 2015. FAWM is an online community of musicians and lyricists that try to write 14 songs in the 28 days of February. I have a number of collaborators across the globe that I write songs with and it is so much fun... Check it out at fawm.org

Track Name: Snow Bouquet (ft Bijou Basil)
I love the way the snow falls past your eyes
A cold blurred image that soon will demise
What's your name?
What's your name?
It’s a shame
It’s a shame
When you run away

You're small pieces
Gold pieces
Red faces
White spaces
Cold places
Warm embraces
You're abstract in my mind

Snow bouquets
And walking on air
I dream of you like you are really there
Then your reflection hazes in the window next store
I snap out
I see you
And I’m running
Then you're gone

You're small pieces
Gold pieces
Red faces
White spaces
Cold places
Warm embraces
You're abstract in my mind

(You’re amazing)

Now I’m having flashbacks of you
But this time you are real
I reach out to touch you
You break to pieces and you float away

(c) Bijou Basil
Track Name: Is This Love? (ft Ms. Mongoose)
Is this love?

There's no gaps in my life I gotta fill,
no connections missing, places to hold,
I got socks for the cold, and my sweaters are better,
never need to be told to hold on, I'm not strong
I'm just bored with the sh**
so I wait for it, watch for it, I predict the hits
I could roll with but I body swerve ahead of the curve
ahead of the game I switch lanes, I stay sane this way
I could play but a roll in the hay won't come up needles,
no prize I'd rather set it on fire and watch it burn
than take turns trading words you won't learn,
I'll raise my hands to the flames
and warm my face on the same fire that keeps me alive,
it's been burning inside
since way before I decided to start breathing it out,
coz I figured it out,
I wasn't meant to be quiet, sitting nodding and smiling and dying
as I curl in the tiniest ball,
I'm still small but I'm bigger than this,
I'm taller, broader and I figure I'm tough enough on my own
for the space that's been taken away,
and I like it this way

Is this love?

So when you're negging me begging to be
what you seem to think of me, telling me you're lonely,
sure, come back when I'm 23 again
or call me when you get there
and let's see if you're still keen on me now
coz what's my age again
forget about it you gotta admit,
it's smaller than the sum of my parts,
I'm an artwork made of muscle and bone
carved in marble and encrusted with the stones
that just grow in my shoes to walk over,
make grooves I could use
to fix nails made of tall tales into something to do,
and I do it every day
til it works a little better, harder faster forever,
building something I can live in when I'm old and alone,
my own body's got rooms where no one else will ever be going,
and the ceilings are high enough to see to the sky,
coz the stars I been looking for aren't just in my eyes
I'm making space to grow and wearing holes in the toes of my shoes
til I find boots that fit and kick a way through
I'm older than I look but I'm young enough to know
I've got a better time ahead of me
than where you think we're going

Is this love?

So I guess what I'm saying is it's me, not you,
I'm not the answer you're after, I'm not something to do,
I'm not the bonus at the end of whatever level you play,
the end of the line, damn you're fine, stay, get out the next day,
I'm not the answer to your mum asking every holiday if you're gay,
no “Come what may”, we're not f***ing, ok?
I guess the bottom line is what I wanted to say
when you asked is I finally found my way,
I hope you do one day

Is this love?

Micro Management Man

Get your work done like I told you
It needs doing right this moment
Need to make sure to tick the boxes

Shut your mouth

Your never gonna
get it any other way

Shut your mouth

it's my way or the highway

Pretend to Adhere
Micro Management Man is Here!
And he's gonna get Management Man of the Year

Crunch the numbers
Push the buttons
Make sure your hours
all add up to something
I've got a report to present to the board
and I want to make sure my a$$ is covered, so

Shut your mouth
you don't have a say
Your never gonna
get it any other way

Shut your mouth
you don't have a say
it's my way or the highway

Micro Management Man is Here!
Prove your Productivity
Pretend to Adhere
Micro Management Man is Here!

I can't be pushed around any more
I can't be bothered to adhere to your rules
I won't be penciled into anything
you can't make me because I quit

Micro Management Man is Here!
Prove your Productivity
Pretend to Adhere
Micro Management Man is Here!
And he's gonna get Management Man of the Year
Track Name: Say Goodbye (ft Bijou Basil)
Say Goodbye
(Bijou Basil)

I know I’m crying all alone
Once that door opens
I’ll get the strength to move on
A trial first and then a fail
To hide myself behind this veil

I’ll make sure that you’ll never love again
Oh you’ll never love again
Say goodbye

It’s bad, I know
My dark thoughts are gone

To see you crying when I don’t care
I have myself to bring me down
At least I can do that better than you
Porcelain but fake, your face
I don’t care

I’ll make sure that you’ll never love again
Oh you’ll never love again
Say goodbye

It’s bad, I know
My dark thoughts are gone

I know it’s hard to say goodbye
Track Name: Mind's Made Up (ft Stacy Koviak-Davison)
Mind's Made Up
(Stacy Koviak-Davison)

Hear me out
Hear me out
Can you fake this?
Break this?
Baby, I have more to say to you
I can break free and I want to
Kick and shout
Kick and shout
Can't control this
Know this
I won't be here tomorrow

I won't give you
Anything you want
I won't be there
To catch you when you fall
Too late, I'm gone
This is where I stand
My mind's up
I'm breaking out
I'm breaking out

Scream it loud
Scream it loud
Can you hear this?
Fear this
I've got more to say to you
I won't be here tomorrow
I won't give you
Anything you want
I won't be there
To catch you when you fall
Too late, I'm gone
This is where I stand
My mind's up
I'm breaking out
Breaking out
Breaking out

Now you're beggin' me
Now you're beggin me
Down upon your knees
I won't be here tomorrow

I won't give you
Anything you want
I won't be there
To catch you when you fall
Too late, I'm gone
This is where I stand
My mind's up
I'm breaking out

I won't give you
I won't be there
It's too late
My mind's made up
I'm breaking out
Breaking out
Breaking out
Breaking out
I'm breaking out

Turning to a cosmic string
What happened?
Have we hit the singularity?

The absolute altitude of us
And light years between us
Supernova

Oh you're floating away from my galaxy
Oh you’re floating away from me

Absolute zero is our love

Oh you're floating away from my galaxy
Oh you’re floating away from me
