Bloom 05:01
I wandered out in 2020 Everything’s plenty for some Morning has broken and so has the system Everyone’s seeking a new start I tend to cry at the cheesiest movies I tend to fall for the philosophical Bloom Spring Bloom of Spring I’ve fallen In to some kind of emotion Nothing can stop me from feeling Forcing the light in to every chink I see Under the darkness of history I tend to cry from the kindness of strangers I tend to fall for the poetic minds Bloom of Spring Bloom of Spring Something that’s sovereign that’s broken inside us Spoken that can’t be unsaid Come with me be in a world we can blossom All that was wrong leave as dead I tend to cry at the kindness of strangers I tend to fall for the scientific minds Bloom of Spring Bloom of Spring

Wow, all that I see, all that I feel, All is alive. The sun comes up each morning, goes down each evening, I am alive. I'll be awesome, all the night long, all the day and night, I'll be your life. We're touching when nobody's looking. All things will pass, All things we see All things will pass, All that I feel. Diamonds inside. The stars shining so bright up in the sky I am alive. All things will pass All things will be Out of control All things we feel We're touching when nobody's looking Sure, Summer in the bed is so hhhhhot. Sure, I have your back. All things will pass Live Love No Fear All things will pass You are safe here.

Mothership 04:28
I'm on the mother ship I want to travel far In to the heart of it In to the part of you No one has ever loved I want to touch you where you grieve I want to take you there I want to be your mirror I want to feel the love Want you to lose the fear Of everything that we are I want you to see all is here THERE ARE NO MOUNTAINS HIGH ENOUGH FOR ME TO CLIMB TO GET YOU OVER THE LINE THE SEA IS WILDER THAN THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN THERE’S NO POINT IN CONTROL ALL THE VOICES OF THE WORLD FOREVER SING THERE IS NO BETTER LOVE THERE’S NOTHING BETTER THAN THIS I want to fall in love With everything that we are I need you to see my fear I want you to touch my scar I want to give it all I want you to come in to my heart THERE ARE NO MOUNTAINS HIGH ENOUGH FOR ME TO CLIMB TO GET YOU OVER THE LINE THE SEA IS WILDER THAN THIE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN THERE’S NO POINT IN CONTROL ALL THE VOICES OF THE WORLD FOREVER SING THERE IS NO BETTER LOVE THERE’S NOTHING BETTER THAN THIS And nobody understands What it all really means When everything feels a lie And nothing is as it seems There's nothing between us though Nothing but everything you feel When somebody's let you down When something is on your mind When everything's not ok When all that you've got is time Will you remember then Will you remember

Nadir 03:05
Deep in to the soil Dirt under your nails Pale I was nadir All was out of phase Stop and then a start Give until we break Stole under your pillow Saw that you were gone. Hard a pill to swallow A love that’s more than yours Greater is my heart Than beaten off the course Your Believing mirror You’re my doubt I soak up all the rain So you could wring me out Gone Down in to the sorry Song of bone and marrow Born in to the holly Long of finch and sparrow Sold a broken wing Caught up in the harrow Faroh heart I sing Gather til we’re gone

Who am I anyway to expect happiness If ever I was in the light of the moon I’de see how small we are and all that we feel Makes sense somehow makes It’s wild outside and it’s wild inside I prefer to fall upon my own sword than yours I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone Who am I anyway to expect loyalty And everything I’ve ever lost, I’m leaving here I found my joie de vivre beyond the fantasy and I’ve been loved much more than this and I’ve known love It’s wild outside and it’s wild inside I prefer to fall upon my own sword than yours I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone Who am I anyway to believe we can love

Nina Hynes Berlin, Germany

I have been releasing records since 1999. The internet has freed things up considerably. I do like it for that.
