SAMSERA PROJECT

First U.S. Solo E.P.

 

THE SAMSERA PROJECT (FIRST SOLO E.P. 2009)

"The Samsera Project" is my first truly solo E.P, blending the organic style of my acoustic songs,  yet reflective of my 'beat’ driven origins as a vocalist. 

Wanting to focus on telling compelling, moving stories, in a true, authentic way, I collaborated with songwriter Jody Gray. 

He pushed me to move my audience as effectively lyrically as I do melodically, exposing my uniquely evocative conversational signature style.

I’m leaving

I’ve had enough of this game

You’ve let me down so many times

I’m tired of waiting for things to change

 

It’s been a long time coming

I’ve been waiting for I don’t know what

Can’t think why it’s taken so long

Now I’ve finally had enough

 

Time to call the whole thing off

Call the whole thing off

I don’t wanna waste your time

Or mine

I’ll be fine

I’m not saying walk away

It shouldn’t have to be that way

We get on better when we see each other . . .

As just friends

 

I won’t cry for you no, no, no

I have nothing to grieve for

You gave me your best

I’m choosing to leave the rest

See you don’t have what I need

And I’d rather not see

You & me

Destroy ourselves, holding on

To something way past saving

 

Time to call the whole thing off

Call the whole thing off

I don’t wanna waste your time

Or mine

I’ll be fine

I’m not saying walk away

It shouldn’t have to be that way

We get on better when we see each other ...

As just friends

 

So can we stop pretending now ?

You don’t have to try anymore

And I won’t ask you anymore questions

About things I don’t need to know

They say time waits for no man

It sure as hell don’t wait for love

It’s not the way that you don’t love me

It’s the way you let me know.

 

Time to call the whole thing off

Call the whole thing off

I don’t wanna waste your time

Or mine

We’ll be fine

I’m not saying walk away

It shouldn’t have to be that way

We get on better When

We see each other...

As just friends

 

The thing about all this is this

I’ll always want to feel you, hold you, kiss you

I don’t know what I’ll do

‘cos I sure as hell am gonna miss you.

8 O’Clock

I’m standing on the Chelsea dock

The summer ferry’s right on time

I climb the stairs

Step into the open air

Let it cool my mind

 

Round me mouths move endlessly

I’m not hearing anything

Cell phones taking pictures

But they miss everything

 

And I feel you close to me

I’ve been waiting patiently

For you to find me

I feel you … I feel you ….

 

Always there

You’re all around me everywhere

I’m wrapped up in a blanket made of sky

Dreaming tonight

Of wearing only candlelight

Skin shimmering

‘til sunrise

 

Close my eyes and

Feel you kiss me

Me breathing you in

Whispering, the ways you’ve missed me

With words

Written in the wind

 

And I feel you close to me

Though you’re far away

I can see

You right beside me.

 

Connecting all the dots

Free to give you all I’ve got

You make it real

The way ……………..

 

I feel you close to me

I’ve been waiting patiently

And now you’ve found me

I feel you … I feel you …

I think we’ve both been here before

And I can’t be here anymore

I end up bruised and torn

After you call

 

Somehow it always hurts the same

And I don’t think you’ll ever change

I pause and you replay

I hate to feel this way

After you call

 

Although I’ve tried

Oh to see things right

I fall apart so easily

I’ve bent in two

Gave away too much of me

To be with you

 

I know I’ve been here before….but

If this is it then I want more

No I won’t change my mind this time

After you call

 

I’ve tried and tried

Oh to make things right

But now I see so clearly

All I can do is

Take back every part of me

I gave to you

 

Sometimes the truth can’t be denied

This is the sound of my goodbye

I’ll sit here with closed eyes

After you call

But I won’t sit here and cry

I know

I’ve been here before
