about

Even if we slip and it's dissonant, it's just the whistle of the wind as we whip through it.

lyrics

She sits amongst the crowd
Isolation on her face
Compressed stress within this space
She needs to let this out
It's been building
She can feel it
In the palm of her clench fist
But the word showcase in front of her face
Let's her know that she can't resist

She stands when he asked
Her guitar in her grasp
And stumbles before she even starts
Her cheeks look flush
As goosebumps rush
To catch her racing heart

Oh child, hold out
I know you hold onto doubt
But still I see you try
So hold out

Out of place in the crowd
She takes to centre stage
The stress is wash away with waves
Her sea of supple sounds
The key seems warm
But the voicing is torn
‘Feels like a calm before the storm

Oh child, hold out
I know you hold onto doubt
But still I see you try
So hold out

We sit with a sickness wishing we're different
but just as gifted as she is but what's the reason
for these hunting chords of glory
bringing the strings alive with heightened vibes of life so I can see them
In the echoes of an intelligent spectrum of elements.
Brooding low notes bellow, her falsetto is heaven sent
Whispers of an image the picture depicted in melody.
Fingers sweaty slipping but gripping our souls sensually.
But how the fuck does she do it?
She captures the immaculate factor that's missing in music.
Is it something we can match or is it pointless trying to pursue it?
The sickness is spreading and turning into a terminal illness.
Envious energy sending us on an eternal, internal search for brilliance.
So natural comparison grabs us and has us stressing,
every paragraph and passage is riddled in self assessment.
So when we see someone achieve, honestly,
Jealousy infects us.

Oh child, hold out
I know you hold onto doubt
But still I see you try
So hold out, child.
