about

Rosie Catalano Sydney, Australia

“Her sugar-syrup vocals and rolling finger-picked guitar melodies made us sigh deeply before breathing in the fresh air of new music that comes without pretense or one-uppery.”

Track Name: Hearts (feat. Jack Carty)
Consider my heart beating before you
Holding a tune, singing it to you
You gave me your heart beating before me
Holding a tune, singing it to me

Once we were strangers walking alone
Each other’s names we’d never have known
And even with words I can not say
What led me to you on that fateful day
And I say oh, oh

If I am a dreamer you are my dream
And when I wake up you’re here with me
Let’s take a ride to the end of the sea
And keep going ‘round just you and me
And I say oh, oh

Consider my heart beating before you
Holding a tune, singing it to you
You gave me your heart beating before me
Holding a tune, singing it to me
Track Name: Dreams Are Just Movies
I dreamt of Elvis last night
He was young and kind of quiet
All the girls went wild
I made eyes
He noticed me for a moment
I wanted to be special
But I got lost in the crowd
Woke up and realised he was dead and old

Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos
Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos

I dreamt of a body
It was in my house
I had to bury it
It was a hundred kilos
Don’t know how it got there
Didn’t ask any questions
I come from Sicily you see
We don’t ask these things

Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos
Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos
Track Name: This Town
The air is thick with dirt and debris
The cars wear leaves for jewellery
The heat is staying up with the moon
I don’t think we’re getting clean too soon

And everyone says
And everyone says
And everyone says

Oh this town is going down, down, down
Every man and his boat has claimed it
No saint bone can cure its cancer
When it coughs up its dirty tricks

The church is lined with skulls and bones
It eats my coins like all its clones
Its neighbours crumble to the ground
Once was lost, never found

And everyone says
And everyone says
And everyone says

Oh this town is going down, down, down
Every man and his boat has claimed it
No saint bone can cure its cancer
When it coughs up its dirty tricks

And everyone said
And everyone said
And everyone said

We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down

No this town will not go down, down, down
Every man and his boat has claimed it
Her saint bone once cured its cancer
When it coughed up its dirty tricks

We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down
Track Name: Ginger
Faraway now dropping crumbs on a trail
Don’t want to end up on a dinner plate
‘Where have you been?’ my mother said to me
When I returned without my brother Timothy

Faraway now looking for the witch’s key
Little brother, why were you so greedy?
In the end we will all be empty
Don’t go fishing in someone else’s stream

Faraway now won’t be long ‘til we are free
Light the oven, push her in and run with me
Through the forest, don’t know which way is home
Darkness falling, say goodbye

Faraway now dropping crumbs on a trail
Don’t want to end up on a dinner plate
‘Where have you been?’ my mother said to me
When I returned without my brother Timothy
Track Name: Daemon
Paint the walls another colour
Dye your hair the deepest red
But you can’t run away from the daemon in your head

Move to where the grass is greener
Throw matchsticks upon your bed
But you can’t run away from the daemon in your head

It will catch you in the end, it’s already run this race
‘If you can’t beat them join them,’ says the daemon in your head
Track Name: Stitch You Up
I want you for supper
I want you for tea
I want you forever
Come this way with me

Or I will stitch you up
Pour you out
And you’ll never be free

I want you my lover
I want you with me
I want you forever
Come this way with me

Or I will stitch you up
Pour you out
And you’ll never be free
Track Name: Hope To Never Say Never
There was red
There was yellow too but
There was no rainbow
There was no blue
You dreamt of circles
The perfect kiss
But in the end
There was nothing to miss

Fly away
Lonely Blackbird
Into arms
You can caress
Everything
You thought you had
Was not here
Was not here…

They say for life
They say forever
They gave you hope
To never say never
You saw a future
A golden egg
But you were dreaming
It lived inside your head

Fly away
Lonely Blackbird
Into arms
You can caress
Everything
You thought you had
Was not here
Was not here…
