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...

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

Icicles 03:30
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

In The Dark (free) 02:56
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...

My Secrets 03:23
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

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.”
