Lady Greyfax How can I choose which song causes me to love this album when each song is wonderfully beautiful?! Venus' lyrics are honest and intelligent, they pierce the listener to the very core and make every song relatable in some way. So many artists strive for this but can't accomplish it as well as Venus. HIGHLY recommend! Favorite track: The Fog.

straight4ward Original songs, a powerful uplifting voice laid down on an almost Spector-like wall of sound.
I love this.

Hold me still, stop the room from spinning Swallow the pill, take me back to the beginning Where I feel safe Where I feel safe Cos I've had lightening strike me to the ground though the sky is brightening I can still see it now I feel the earth move I feel the earth move I'll lift the fog that has kept me blinded While some turn to god just to be reminded That there is more That there is more Cos I've had lightening strike me to the ground though the sky is brightening I can still see it now I feel the earth move I feel the earth move Cos I've had lightening strike me to the ground though the sky is brightening I can still see it now I feel the earth move I feel the earth move Hold me still, stop the room from spinning Swallow the pill, take me back to the beginning Where I feel safe Where I feel safe

All my life I've been the weak one Always the meek one Well no more I'm rising up out of the ashes With my past it clashes But now this is war You throw me down and then You dare call me your friend Well just try to stop me now I'm the one on top You can try to stop me now I'm the one on top One hundred miles can feel like a thousand I pass many towns and I cross many shores My heart finds strength with every conquest Now I don't need rest My bones are not sore So throw me down again And see if I'm your friend And just try to stop me now Im the one on top You can try to stop me now Im the one on top Oh life's fleeting promise can pass you by though you might try You still could crash I'm not sure I'd want to be the one Still landing alone in the aftermath So throw me down again And see if I'm your friend And just try to stop me now Im the one on top I dare you to stop me now Im the one on top Oh you think you can stop me but I'll come out on top

She's her mother's daughter and he's his father's son And they are dancing to the beat of the same drum They'll leave their houses burning as they run towards the sun They are hoping that they are the only ones And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world Since he had her cast out of his sea And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world Since she found he could not let her be The world that he sought after would bring him to his knees He could not see through the poison ivy leaves The only sound as he hit the ground and fell down to her feet Was his desperate cry begging her to try again to set him free And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world Since he had her cast out of his sea And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world Since she found he could not let her be She's her mother's daughter and he's his father's son And they are dancing to the beat of the same drum They'll leave their houses burning as they run towards the sun They are hoping that they are the only ones

We had a bargain that you broke Leaving behind just a note Waiting in the garden while you smoke Wondering how long till we choke In the sandstorm that is tearing through your mind Is a place that you rarely come to find So you write letters to those you've left behind Explaining that you couldn't find the time To rewrite We once had something that was lost You longed for it back at any cost But winter soon covered your heart with frost The touch that I once knew no longer soft In the sandstorm that is tearing through your mind Is a place that you rarely come to find So you write letters to those you've left behind Explaining that you couldn't find the time In the sandstorm that is tearing through your mind Is a place that you rarely come to find So you write letters to those you've left behind Explaining that you couldn't find the time To rewrite

Sometimes I wish that I could disappear Your last shot it threw me to the ground It wasn't that I didn't feel the fear But when I cried out it didn't make a sound It made no sound It made no sound When you know it all it doesn't help at all I guess you're so tall you can't see that the small Things matter to me I have always been fast on my feet But for some reason that day I didn't run I guess I thought that you made me complete But I know now that our last dance had begun It had begun It had begun When you know it all it doesn't help at all I guess you're so tall you can't see that the small Things matter to me

Meet me when the power’s out We're not afraid of darkness We'll be the only ones about tonight Soon we'll find our way without Turning to your torches Then we will be known throughout the land If I'm wrong then I Wont just lay down and die I won't go out without a fight So meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Meet me when the power’s out Escape into the darkness We'll be the only ones about tonight And if we find our way without Turning to your torches Then we'll know our silent vows begun If I'm wrong then I Wont just lay down and die I won't go out without a fight So meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Meet me when the power’s out We're not afraid of darkness We'll be the only ones about tonight Soon we'll find our way without Turning to your torches Then we will be known throughout the land If I'm wrong then I Wont just lay down and die I won't go out without a fight So meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out Out Meet me when the power’s out If Im wrong then I Wont just lay down and die I won't go out without a fight So meet me when the power’s out

Its hard to believe that you could deceive And leave us caught in the web that you'd weave And now that you're gone how it took me so long To remember that I could be strong For a while I let you cover my ears and my eyes From the moment I met you it came as no surprise As you revelled in my demise Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise From a dream as a child Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine If I kept my eyes blind And I stayed by your side I guess that in time I could take back whats mine Leaving memories of you far behind But its harder when you try time and again To remind me that we were once friends Go win someone else's trust with the niceties that you fake Go stare at your own reflection in somebody else's lake Cos there's nothing left here to break Chorus: Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise From a dream as a child Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine If I kept my eyes blind And I stayed by your side All the time had me waiting was so frustrating and so far The picture that you are painting is not demonstrating Who you are Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise From a dream as a child Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise From a dream as a child Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine If I kept my eyes blind And I stayed by your side

I didn't hold you back but I didn't push you on I guess I hoped with me is where you'd belong And I know that it takes two, still I wish I'd been the one To tug the knot until we came undone Undone It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed I just guess I put it second to my basic human need And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool I know I let you down by begging you to stay Still you told me you'd have it no other way I could tell that you were torn, still I never saw you sway You'd have held my hand despite your own decay Your decay Chorus: It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed I just guess I put it second to my basic human need And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool Still I wish I'd tried just to put you first Cos I could have lied when my heart it burst But instead I cried for you to quench my thirst For your love Your love It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed I just guess I put it second to my basic human need And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed I just guess I put it second to my basic human need And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool

A strangers hand upon my shoulder Knowing that I'm not alone should make me bolder But still I shiver at the touch I guess I've seen too much I shiver at the touch I guess I've seen too much Open your eyes and from your sleep arise Set me free tonight Tonight every little light shows A way that noone else knows I'm falling down I'm falling down I'm falling down Let me sleep a little longer Then I'll be a little stronger Cos nothing's as it seems So let me get lost in dreams No nothing's as it seems So let me get lost in dreams Open your eyes and from your sleep arise Set me free tonight Open your eyes and from your sleep arise Set me free Tonight every little light shows A way that noone else knows I'm falling down I'm falling down I'm falling down

Would your world stop spinning if I came around and told you that I was leaving town Would you even notice me gone The space between was growing too fast and we both knew that it couldn't last Still we lingered a little too long And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Would your mother have to wipe away your tears as she has done for so many years Would you chase me and beg me to stay I know how you like to say that you would but even if I knew that you could You would leave it one second too late And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Oh now you're sick of being alone Well maybe you could be the reason I come home You said you didn't know that for you I left my throne Because I didn't think you'd make it on your own But I was wrong And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time When staying out and lying in was yours and mine

Wonder where we're going, what we're hiding from Wonder why we're leaving and where we belong We're running out of ways to say Something has got to change While your heart is paralysed Your pain will be disguised Know that power lies In love that's not denied Crashing we're colliding, but we're pulling through Bodies torn to pieces, but will our hearts stay true Bridge: We're running out of ways to say Something has got to change While your heart is paralysed Your pain will be disguised Know that power lies In love that's not denied We're running out of ways to say Something has got to change We're running out of ways to say Something has got to change While your heart is paralysed Your pain will be disguised Know that power lies In love that's not denied In love thats not denied In love thats not denied

She's sitting on the grass out side waiting for you to arrive She's waiting Her mothers waiting in the house in her favourite silk blouse She's waiting The sun is shining down today so please don't take this all away She's waiting She'll sit and make her daisy chains, the last of her hope still remains She's waiting So please don't let her down No please don't let her down And she could grow up without you and never know the things you'd do She'd never know And for her you might never try or laugh with her until you cry You'd never know And as she grew up through the years well who'd be there to wipe her tears You'd love her so And if you came to her one day and tried to make it all okay She'd tell you no So please don't let her down No please don't let her down Save your own despair for when she's not around Don't let her go on thinking you don't care about her And don't let it show if you would you would rather go So please don't let her down No please don't let her down Save your own despair for when she's not around No please don't let her down No please don't let her down Save your own despair for when she's not around
