Lyrics: Only a Fantasy

I walked in the door and it smelled of old clothes
The laundry’s asleep in a pile on the floor
There’s crumbs on the table and bread going old
The bills are unpaid in a heap by the drawer
I wish it was perfect with things in their place
I tried not to worry cause no one’s that way

It’s only like that in the movies
It’s only like that on TV
It’s only like that in the magazines
It’s only a fantasy

It seems I keep looking for love in my life
It’s just that I’m waiting for things to be right
For special effects and explosions of light
A choir of angels, a dashing young knight
The first time I meet him I figure I’ll know
But sometimes I worry that’s not how it goes

It’s only like that in the movies
It’s only like that on TV
It’s only like that in the magazines
It’s only a fantasy

And the hero never dies
She always gets the guy
So happily ever after seems like science fiction
What happens after the credits roll?
What happens after the show is done?
You and I both know

It’s only like that in the movies
It’s only like that on TV
It’s only like that in the magazines
It’s only a fantasy 

Lyrics: A Blanket of Love

A blanket of love
Love yourself
Selfless love
Loving touch
Touch your heart
Hearty laugh
Laughter and comfort
Comfort in a blanket
A blanket of love
A blanket of love

A family
Fleeting moments
Meant for love
Overcome
Come with me
Meet me higher
Earth and thunder
Under a blanket
A blanket of love
A blanket of love

You
You left behind
You left behind
You left

A legacy
See your love
Love divine
Finding arms
Karmic faith
Faith devotion
Ocean of safety
Safety in a blanket
A blanket of love
A blanket of love 

Lyrics: So Beautiful

It occurs to me that people who bought digital versions of Morning Glow never had copies to the lyrics. So without further ado I am posting them on my blog, for anybody who might be seeking them (for any reason.)

SO BEAUTIFUL

He/she/I give(s) his/her/my love freely
To all that he/she/I care(s) for
He/she/I give(s) his/her/my love freely
To himself/herself/myself as well
And that’s beautiful So beautiful
So beautiful to be
So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful to me

He/she/I give(s) his/her/my love freely
He/she/I know(s) how to connect
He/she/I give(s) his/her/my love so freely
He/she/I know(s) just how to be
How lovely
How lovely
How lovely

Recently my track So Beautiful was featured in the “Stuck in My Skull” blog — and the blogger praised for my elite Hipsterness due to the incredibly low profile I typically enjoy. Thanks Christopher for your kind words: “She’s hipster enough not to have a wikipedia entry. Regardless of that, her CD Morning Glow recently made its way into my hands, and I love it.”

Fun Article in the Georgia Straight

A while back I appeared in a Georgia Straight feature about local artists’ new year’s resolutions… I should have blogged it here, but I am a smidgen too shy for my own good. 😉 I just feel slutty posting my own press!!! Don’t you?

I’m trying to get over that, so here is the adorable picture of some of us local girls that we took for the article you can read here. Guess which one is me? Yep, I’m the goofy one with the streamers… It was actually a really fun shoot, the photographer was really great!

Best Albums of 2011

My buddy Fidgital for years has put out his annual list of best albums of 2011. This is the best-of roundup I look forward to most of all each year. Granted, by then he’s already turned me on to most of the releases, but I always find a couple new surprises to cherish.

He usually also makes a great best song DJ mix to mark the new year. This year is possibly his best ever! Listen here:

Be sure to check out his last.fm Journal entry detailing all his picks! 🙂
