about

LONDON E12

It's taken me all my life to make this album.
I didn't realise that until I started to write it
All of the mistakes I've made,
all of the lessons I've learned,
I really don't think I was ready before.
I have made plenty of music already that I'm proud of but this is finally the real me.
This is what I wanted to say
the way I wanted to say it.
It isn’t about pain,
It isn't just a release.
It is just my truth, my art.
A lot of it is looking back
trying to understand who I really am.
I felt compelled to connect with my past with this album.
To finally confront my demons before I could move on with my life.
And through making this music
I'm not afraid anymore,
I am at peace.
This is my time
and it feels wonderful!!

This is LONDON E12

Track Name: London E12 Interlude
Instrumental
Track Name: Unknown
Unknown
I'm meeting you soon
Got great expectations
And nothing to lose
Unknown
I'm walking with you
Will you have all my answers
Or burst my balloon

You don't frighten me
You got all I need
I just wanna leave
Won't you help me please

All I know is
I have to get away
To be someone different
Don't care what people say
Just because I do this
Doesn't make it right
Unknown won't you help me
Cause I don't think
That I can fight no more

I see you
And I know you see me
You've heard all my screaming
You've seen my heart bleed
Unknown
I'm taking a chance
For all the right reasons
It's time to watch me dance
Track Name: We Have Come A Long Way
I'm trying to make up for lost time
I'm feeling guilty
For everything I left behind
I'm trying to change what I'd become
I'm trying to forget the time
When I couldn't run

You have shown me how to be
You have made it all alright
You have shown me that with love
The future can be bright

We've come a long way
I have something to say
We have come a long way
I wouldn't be here without you

I'm changing all my nights into days
I'm sharing my feelings
Not saving them for rainy days
I'm thankful for the lies and the pain
They've driven me to you
Now I want to explain

You stood by me
With all of your love
You set me free
You came from above
Track Name: To Do This
If I didn't do this
Then who would I be
An underachiever
Exams were a C
Who am I kidding
What else would i do
It's too late for me
It don't have to be you

Don't ask me to stop
The musics all I got
Without this I don't know
Got so much more to show

I want to
I have to
I need you
To do this

Whenever I do this
I feel so alive
Adrenaline flowing
And nothing contrived
Don't take that away girl
Don't you ask me to change
It's my life
In my soul
My forever always

I couldn't breath
I couldn't sleep
I'm in too deep
I have
To do this
Track Name: Now
I've been living in the past
For too long
I've been hoping for a future
That's never gonna come
Right in front of me
Was the answer all along
I see it

I don't want to wait
For too long
I don't want tomorrow
To sing another song
Tell me how
I messed up and everything is wrong
I feel it
Finally feel it

Now
I finally feel it
Now
I finally feel it
I'm never gonna let you go
I just want you to know
I'm never gonna let you go
I want you girl
Now

I don't want to stay
For too long
So tell me how your feeling
Or tell me that I'm wrong
Don't you try to tell me
That your feelings aren't as strong
I know it

Been lying to myself
For too long
Pretending I don't need you
I'm nothing when your gone
I promise if you let me stay
I'll show you I belong
Regret it
You won't regret it

I want to live my whole life with you
And I want to be a part of something true
Don't
Don't you make me wait long for you
It has to be
You and me
Now
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Know
Just get over it
Plenty more fish in the sea
Move on, be done
Your the only one that couldn't see
Your too good
It's her loss
She always acts like she is the boss
Of you

Don't tell me that
Not today
You don't know her
Not in that way

I don't wanna know
How to live without her
I don't wanna stop myself from
Feeling this sad
If I cannot feel
That my heart is still breaking
How will I know that
She's not coming back
Cause she’s not coming back

You can heal yourself
But only one day at a time
What don't kill you
Makes you stronger
This is a good thing
So don't make it a crime
And you knew
It won’t last
Shit gonna happen
You movin too fast
Don't you

If she's happy I don't want to know
If she's hurting I don't want to know
If she hates me I don't want to know

Don't want to let her go
I don’t want to know
Track Name: Tornado
I made a decision
The tornado came
Lifted me off my feet
And took me away
I saw people love and history
Passing me by
I couldn’t hang on
No matter how hard I tried

Couldn’t stop them disappearing
I’m still hurting twisting spinning

In the tornado

I don’t know what happened
But this wasn’t the plan
It seems like a minute ago
I was your man
I’m walking away
From the scene of a crime
I know who is guilty
Of changing their mind

I know i didn’t listen
I know I didn’t wait
A hundred million reasons
What you didn’t stop me
From falling
Track Name: When I Was Alone
Thought I wouldn't cope
Alone meant no hope
Solitude was my fear
The fault was my own

2nd best
Was my fit
Gotten used to existing
Didn't want to admit

That the truth was
When I was lost
I had to find
My peace of mind

When I was alone
Nothing but freedom
When I was alone
Nothing but right
When I was alone
Don't need anybody
When I was alone

I was surprised
Wonderfully so
People rallied around
Even ones I don't know

Everyday
I kept breathing
Living and dreaming
That’s when the hurt it
Started to go

I stopped caring
But never completely
I won't let what you did to me beat me
Reinventing myself but discreetly
Letting go before shadows defeat me
Track Name: Running To Stay
I’ve been honest
Maybe too honest
I’ve lied just to be nice
I’ve been laughing
At all my weakness
I’ve cried once maybe twice
But I’m changing my friends
My friends and my mind

I’ve been hurt
And never knew why
I’m close but so far away
I’ve been lucky
Or so someone told me
I’m waiting for you just to say
That I’m changing my friends
My friends and my mind

I feel like I’ve been
On a white knuckle ride
And lost all my life on the way
But where was the right road
I never saw it
I feel like I’m running away
Just to stay
Running to stay

I’ve been looking
For more than excuses
I’ve dreamed
For maybe too long
I’ve been taking
When I should be giving
But I
I want respect from this song
So I’m changing my friends
My friends and my mind
Track Name: 331
I used to wear chequered flared trousers
And shoes held in place by "lackey" bands
My mum cut my hair very badly
Fingernails bitten down my hands
I gave away all my pocket money
To stop my sister from crying all day
My proudest moment was getting a "Chopper" bike
The swing in my garden is where I'd fly away

Life was simple
Life was hard
Sometimes scary
Rarely fun
Life was "Seasons In The Sun"
When I lived at 331

I can't believe we had an outside "lavvy"
Where cats and rats used to pass by and stare
Saucepans were boiling on the gas stove
To fill a tin bath we all used to share
My Dad had the chair in the parlour
And I knew my place on the floor
Bedtime was always 6.30
You never argued or you'd get his "What For"

I would dream of somewhere better
Make believe that we had more
Track Name: If This Is The End
I didn't want to see you fade away
I didn't want to hear you saying
You had nothing new to say
I didn't want to see you being blind
I know that sounds like being cruel
I can't stomach being kind

I could have done more
But i would not change a thing
I knew someone more
I could not bare to think

If this is the end
That wasn't you
If we don't say it
It ain't the truth
If this is the end
I don't want to lie
I just couldn't be there
To say goodbye

I was driving by your house the other day
But you weren't out there waving
Couldn't tell you what I came to say
It's hard to comprehend that you are gone
Can't tell you how that makes me feel
But I don't think that I was wrong

When I close my eyes
You are standing there
Don’t you leave my side
Tell me that you care
Track Name: If This Is The End "Extended Mix"
I didn't want to see you fade away
I didn't want to hear you saying
You had nothing new to say
I didn't want to see you being blind
I know that sounds like being cruel
I can't stomach being kind

I could have done more
But i would not change a thing
I knew someone more
I could not bare to think

If this is the end
That wasn't you
If we don't say it
It ain't the truth
If this is the end
I don't want to lie
I just couldn't be there
To say goodbye

I was driving by your house the other day
But you weren't out there waving
Couldn't tell you what I came to say
It's hard to comprehend that you are gone
Can't tell you how that makes me feel
But I don't think that I was wrong

When I close my eyes
You are standing there
Don’t you leave my side
Tell me that you care
