You can’t always be on it All of the time I’ve been there - well not quite there But somewhere near Hayley don’t say goodbye To what you do, you do it so well Hayley don’t say goodbye To what you do, you do it so well And we’re listening We’re listening We’re listening Hayley, Hayley I’m always up marching or driving on In a pocket of assonance And you are here or anywhere near Only in my ear, clear and resonant Hayley don’t say goodbye To what you do, you do it so well Hayley don’t say goodbye To what you do, you do it so well And we’re listening We’re listening We’re listening Hayley, Hayley So don’t walk away just take a break Hayley Don’t walk away we're awaiting Don’t walk away just take a break Hayley Don’t walk away we're awaiting And we’re listening We’re listening Hayley, Hayley Hayley don’t say goodbye To what you do, you do it so well Hayley don’t say goodbye To what you do, you do it so well And we’re listening We’re listening We’re listening Hayley, Hayley We’re listening We’re listening Hayley We’re listening Hayley, Hayley

I’ll be good, from now on I’ll be good while we’re apart I’ll be good for us I’ll be good for you, you How are we ever really gonna know, while we’re apart, we’re not alone? Can we still be together, when making love’s by telephone Can we hold our virtue? Can we fold the world in two? To be, be someone, be better good, I have to go somewhere I figured out I care but I’m going nowhere here in this world Before you know we’ll be together in a cold world in two I’ll be good, from now on I’ll be good while we’re apart I’ll be good for us I’ll be good for you, you How are we ever really gonna know, while we’re apart, we’re not alone? Can we still be together when making love’s by telephone? Can we hold our virtue? Can we fold the world in two? To be, be someone, be better good, I have to go somewhere I figured out I care but I’m going nowhere here in this world Before you know we’ll be together in a cold world in two I cannot walk away, I will fly Can we fold the world in two? Can we fold the world in two? Can we fold the world in two? Can we fold the world in two? Fold the world in two Can we fold the world in two?

Escapee 04:36
Caught climbing Call him down He can’t be seen to be leaving Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping Constant digging This is the rich life Of course many die The Great Leader keeps us alive So don’t leave Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping It’s worse outside But how could you ever know? How would you ever be without him? Fall South and I’ll catch you, catch you Fall South and I’ll catch you, catch you Fall South and I’ll catch you, catch you Fall South and I’ll catch you where he can’t catch you Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping From the paradise he has made Escapee, escaping

There I go passing up upon Relations invitations and a bright opportunity once more Oh it could have been so much more Sharing boysenberry shortcake flavour chocolate on a windswept shore You and me With the lights all off and the curtains closed We don’t even have to wear clothes Well if the sex is not good you’re just a friend to me And if it’s really good then friends is hard to be I am one of those You wanna watch out for those.. So what have I learned? What do I know now? I’m drinking $5 wine searching for the definitive version of me Oh won’t you join me? Take a chance baby Tell me, what do you ache for - is it me? With the lights all off and the curtains closed We don’t even have to wear clothes Well if the sex is not good you’re just a friend to me And if it’s really good then friends is hard to be I am one of those You wanna watch out for those.. Some envelopes taste better than others I lick the stamp too and it’s covered in my saliva From my tongue to your home abroad I’m coming to you Some types of writing paper allow my hand to more freely wander It’ll cost me much more but I wanna call you too, soon And I’d give up everything I own Just to heal us I’d give up everything I own Just to keep that night as it was that night That night I fell asleep in your arms That night your arms were gonna wait When I’d gone away They were gonna wait for me

St Theresa 01:55
Two pretty young girls are we Too late we speak it seems Alone atop our palace we laugh, dance and sing But with a woman and a gun underfoot Through the heart of our home aim is taken And if she should call We would surely be dead St Theresa are you a murderess? St Theresa are you a murderess? She bangs hard on the walls and scrapes down our door And her eyes tell how her mind process works so far from ours She smashes in windows She shrieks, threats and mauls If our neighbour does call We would surely be dead St Theresa are you a murderess? St Theresa are.. With a woman and a gun underfoot Through the heart of our home St Theresa calls

Within Me 05:47
In every city is a place for me where she heals me But any call from me and she disappears She’s gone Butterfly hide in me Dive into me and survive inside me If you always do what you’ve always done You’ll always get what you’ve always got But with a driving force there’s always more And you’ll always have a future to live for Live through me Look for me Look for me in the places I hide, I hide in me Climb into me and surround all of me Destroy my greed and take me to where I can breathe Climb into me and shelter within me Always again I find I’m falling back in love with you And always again I find myself calling out “Can I stay safe in you?” In you Dive into me and survive inside me Come into me and surround all of me Destroy my greed and take me to where I can breathe Climb into me and shelter within me

So long, there I go And you will never know what became of me or where I go From now on I am alone And it’s a feeling I am making my home We sing songs no one can hear When we leave this room they leave our ears We sing songs no one can hear When we leave this room they stay in here And it pours into me when I come home It pours into me when I come home It pours into me when I come home And I hide, yeah I hide Off we go, unload us all Into our attics and basements and bedsitting rooms To my sanctuary deliver me Jeremy We’re making music without making a sound and now We sing songs no one can hear When we leave this room they stay in here We sing songs no one can hear When we leave this room they leave our ears And it pours into me when I come home It pours into me when I come home It pours into me when I come home Mistakes are made of excuses we all do this Break up down out next time make it sharp Melodies float away on the breeze and they are gone again and words get screwed up tucked behind the chair and they are lost for days and And it pours into me when I come home It pours into me when I come with The feel of the beat that made the whole thing is never achieved Quite to that night you stayed up too late with sleeping lies and stinging eyes and Lone street lights, til the sun comes up again And it pours into me when I come home It pours into me when I come home Mistakes are made of excuses we all do this Break up down out next time make it sharp And it pours into me when I come home We sing songs no one can hear When we leave this room they leave our ears We sing songs no one can hear When we leave this room they stay in here

You Make Me 03:46
Tonight I’m in an electric mood Standing here in this neon room And this party is down to you You let me believe in this dream I’m ready to fall for you If you’re willing to walk my route I will devote myself just to you You let me believe in this dream I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave ‘cos you make me Tonight my smile reaches right round you Standing up for a lighter view And this feeling is loud like you You let me believe in this dream I’ve let go and I’m touching you I can taste every sound that moves My inner thoughts pour out into you You let me believe in this dream I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave ‘cos you make me I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave ‘cos you make me Every action is directed at me Every new voice is speaking directly into me And you are my favourite fantasy You are my favourite thing to make believe I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave ‘cos you make me I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave ‘cos you make me

Grow 04:41
Hey! Get on that ladder You’re trying to get taller in a world of short ambitions and bitter existentialism Well I live in that world too, I live right next door to you and I share your views And I’m coming right up behind you If you fold I will go on If you fall I will grow If you fold I will go on If you fall I will grow I’m stretched out on the end of a limb of hope You may drop, you may resort to violence This fight is more than just anger, this fight is a war on dictatorship Disguised as a happy democracy Dismissed as villains - protesters are seen in the glass eyes of the people Lies are sold and believed in If you fold I will go on If you fall I will grow If you fold I will go on If you fall I will grow Fall over me and I will crumble Fall over me and I will crumble Fall over me and I will crumble Fall and I will I will grow I will grow I will grow Hey! Get on that ladder You’re trying to get fatter in a world of thin aspirations and counterproductive imprisonment I said I live in that world too, I live right next door to you and I share your views And I’m coming right up behind you If you fold I will go on If you fall I will grow If you fold I will go on If you fall I will grow

My Father 04:46
I was a child I awoke to a hushed darkened argument I saw large figures moving heavily, their shadows cast about And I dare not assume the subject of fuel But their voices hummed a familiar dull tune As the tension touched my skin One dropped finally and still Cries of “Batten down the hatches man, you can’t keep on in this town, when you just killed a man” And what a life you now must lead – clothes on the end of a stick in a handkerchief And you can’t be my father The town clock stands taller than any building I have every seen With the heretic stood in front silhouetted - the sun and column strong I felt the power of human words, without a touch raise a hand to my blood “This man should be returned to court”, he said “To be tried by us as God would wish” As the tension burnt my skin The crowd split open and still They cried “Batten down the hatches man - he can’t keep on in this town when he just killed a man” And what a life you now must lead - clothes on the end of a stick in a handkerchief And he can’t be a father My father My father I wonder do I miss this character - in stories I hear concocted through the years about my evil father There’s burrows made, by rabbits and hares - maybe you’d live there There’s milk in fields where leather grows and clear water in these streams And as I age I wonder When is this age I’ll be old enough to understand what happens when a man turns on a man? Cries of “Batten down the hatches man - he can’t keep on in this town when he just killed a man” And what a life you now must lead - clothes on the end of a stick in a handkerchief And you can’t be my father My father My father I wonder do I miss this character - in stories I hear concocted through the years about my evil father

Her music oscillates between indie folk and acoustic pop, with warm, layered vocals, and comforting, hopeful lyrics. ... more
