It's True 04:38
When I’m so locked up inside myself So locked up, I can’t breathe And the best I can muster is just “good” “Yeah, I’m good” Oh I wonder where I’d if, if you hadn’t If you hadn’t found me Born as a child unnamed to a family with no care Small as a doll, skin as white as the moon - on a cloudless night Oh you showed me the path and said: “Hey girl, choose it for yourself” OK so you gave me a roof, and you kept my old clothes Most of all you let me be who I was And it’s true, And it’s true, I wouldn’t be me without you Saying your names makes my eyes speak volumes Makes me turn my ship around and sail back Oh you stood by my side when I questioned Who I was and Who I was and Where they were Oh I wonder where I’d be if you hadn’t If you hadn’t found me

Magazines 03:33
Magazines read today that floral prints are in But the only place that’s true is inside your head It’s a shallow, make-belief world Your ideals don’t resemble me Tell me girls, oh tell me Do you get high from this? To me you act so abnormally And I don’t know how you keep it up Try to open up your eyes, wide So that I can see what lies behind So that I can see what lies are behind Because calling someone an it Really can be one Hell of a hit Tell me girls, oh tell me Do you get high from this? To me you act so abnormally And I don’t know how you keep it up The next ten girls come out dancing Dancing from the conveyor To the same old groove as the ten before To the same old groove as the ten before Tell me girls, oh tell me Do you get high from this? To me you act so abnormally And I don’t know how you keep it up

Don’t you know we’re all children Don’t you know we’re all children Trying to make ourselves understood By shouting the loudest over the row Ah ah, ah ah Don’t you know we’re all children Don’t you know we’re all children Trying not to mix the Playdoh Trying not to make it brown Ah ah, ah ah Ah ah, ah ah— I’m a child in time You’re a child in time We’re all children in time—ah I’m a child to your voice I’m a child to your smile I’m a child to your hugs You’re a child to my touch Ah ah, ah ah Don’t you know we’re all children Don’t you know we’re all children And we don’t mind the sound of water in our boots We don’t let it get us down Douse yourself in the water child Douse yourself in the water x2 Oh, you know what I mean Because I’m a child to your smile

Sit back and sin until the prophecy unfolds On a headless raging journey Surpassing time Even their skies are chaotic Blue to black, they rattle their chains Like moths to the light I pity the purist, whilst I marvel at their truth He’s a Father, though he’s never met his Son The whole thing is a shambles, a confusion of fear Then with the use of the Spirit, they’ll visit And they’ll show me how it’s to be done Like moths to the light And I pity the purist, whilst I marvel at their truth And they’ll ally and rally as many as they can Before he visits again And they’ll frown as I drink my sour wine And look to the Earth, once again Like moths to the light And I pity the purist, whilst I marvel at their truth Like a moth I’m like a moth to the light Ooh

Van parked in the drive Good morning sky It’s a new day Hair’s gone, and now it’s time to run And you can’t resist the road You’d love to be here As much as I’d love you here But thoughts and missions won’t allow We’ll be gentle and willing Allowing them to guide us And you can’t resist the road Six foot and more And you’re reaching the top of the door That you’re gonna close and leave behind In a whirl of excitement And wide-eyed thrill And you can’t resist the road And you can’t resist the road

Like the expressionistic brushstrokes of a landscape painter, Katie Spencer conjures vivid landscapes through the medium of song. Curating intimate studies using her unique finger picked acoustic guitar style and an assured warm voice, Spencer underlines the sense of space that surrounds her home by the sea in Hornsea, East Yorkshire. ... more
