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: 20 Million Dollars
She said...

"I went to the psychiatrist and he told me I was mad.
I'm not mad, I've just go to win twenty million dollars."

Twenty million dollars solves everything in this day and age; even our rotten brains
And I can see a rainbow of green red and yellow
I want to dive in

Cos I'm...
Twenty million dollars short of sanity
Twenty million dollars short of happiness
Twenty million dollars short of fame
Twenty million dollars short of love

I'm close with the barmaids
I've lost all my friends
I can smell the smell of money

I forget what my kids look like in the daylight
But I got them a casino novelty pen

And the screen it shines like candy
It sings me a sweet lullaby,
"Your future looks bright if you continue to play.
Now listen to what I have to say."

First go
Too slow
Next go
Bingo
Breathe in
Breathe out
Heart is
Racing
Next go
Hello
My friend
Pharaoh
Lend me
A dime
Promise
This time

Twenty million dollars short of sanity
Twenty million dollars short of happiness
Twenty million dollars short of fame
Twenty million dollars short of love

Twenty million dollars short of sanity
Twenty million dollars short of happiness
Twenty million dollars short of fame
Twenty million dollars short of love...
Track Name: Falling Into Your Arms
So I woke up Thursday morning with a cool breeze in my mind
We nursed it into being just in the knick of time
Its heart beat so softly
Its words were still shy
As it made its way into your soul it let out a cry

Falling into your arms
I know everything's going to be fine
Feeling the weight lifting off

Every fragile moment seemed like a setting sun
I knew that with the next day this would all be gone
I realise that the creature lies deep within my lungs
I miss you I thank you
My life has just begun

Falling into your arms
I know everything's going to be fine
Feeling the weight lifting off
Track Name: Icicles
I saw your fingertips turn into icicles
It was a cold July as I held your hand in mine
We smoked winter cigars, they were made of cold air
We kept breathing out till you got dizzy like me

It never snows in Sydney but it sure felt like it could
With our robin-coloured cheeks and the white frost in our lungs
You know what they say about cold hands
We had the sun in our heart and we still do

And you mean the world to me
And you deserve the world
And you mean the world to world, I know
Cos you mean the world to me

And with the end of the year comes the smoke and the fire
We never burnt down even though the houses did
We witnessed many things like the death of icecream
As it melted to the ground in a multi-coloured stream

And the seagulls they fought over hot chips
We named one Henry-Lee, he only had one leg
We heard the same song on repeat
It got caught in our heads
And the only line I know was the one that meant that

And you mean the world to me
And you deserve the world
And you mean the world to world, I know
Cos you mean the world to me
Track Name: In The Dark
Collecting raindrops from the sky in your eyes
A new town every day till you're sixty-five

And it goes, like the springtime in the night
You forever put up a fight
Oh, falling faces in the dark

You buried your memories in the ground
Quiet now children, don't make a sound

And it goes, like a fast train in the night
You forever put up a fight
Oh, wheels in the dark

Please I don't want to leave here now
I've found my feet
I've found my heart

But you take it away from me now

And it goes...
Track Name: My Secrets
She wears her heart on her sleeve
She wears her fears in her eyes
Her day in her sleep
To repeat

But in her hands
Between her fingers
Oh so close to her chest
She will tell you

That's where I hold my secrets
That's where I hold my secrets
That's where I hold my secrets
Now

She draws them out on paper
Saves a few for later
Friends on the walls
Hiding in draws

But in her hands
Between her fingers
Oh so close to her chest
She will tell you

That's where I hold my secrets
That's where I hold my secrets
That's where I hold my secrets
Now
Now
That's where I hold my secrets
That's where I hold my secrets
That's where I hold my secrets
Now
