Genre: pop
REVIEW by Annette Warner, GoGirls
I was immediately enamored by the beautiful tone of Genevieve’s vocals which were expressed clearly and maintained a delicate and melodically passionate expression throughout the project. This entire CD is a fine example of what happens when music knows its place mixed with some extraordinary pipes. Great music! A wonderful mood was captured in listening. Recommended highly, for anyone that enjoys …

Story

Heavy and dark multi-layered pop-rock-electronica song about the anonymous life living in the shadows of the web and existing within the 1s and 0s.

Lyrics

V1: Living like the wind

No bounds to hold me

No one to scold me

When I cross the line

 

V2: Breaking bread with sin

Finding the loophole

Tripping the sinkhole

And leaving the wreckage behind

 

Pre-chorus: I can walk away

Nobody knows me

I can disappear

Into oblivion

 

Chorus:

Oh, I know this place like the back of my hand

I own this place like the back, the back of my hand

The back of my hand

 

I know this place like the back of my hand

I own this place like the back, the back of my hand

The back of my hand

 

V3: Caught between the lines

Writing the story

Looking for glory

At someone’s expense

 

V4: Blending my design

So no one can trace me

I have no face

And I live under pretense

 

Pre-Chorus: But someone’s on my game

The dark can’t hold me

And shadows only hide

When there is light

 

Chorus

 

Bridge: I wrote the code, I know the way

Scripted the words I need to say

But sometimes the hunter falls victim to the prey

Any day now will they find me

Or will I remain in hiding

 

Chorus

Story

A haunting piano-based ballad about letting yourself drop your guard, giving yourself permission to lean on others, and allowing people access to your inner world. 

Lyrics

V1: Standing there like Achilles

No one can bring you down

But if you read the stories

You’d know that heroes often fall

 

V2: Maybe if you don’t waver

Nothing can touch your heart

You can be strong and stable

For me to lean upon

 

PreC: But I’m not the one who needs the rescuing

And I’m trying to understand your reasoning

 

C: Why you don’t want me to see 

That you’re fragile

Yeah, you’re fragile

No, you don’t want me to see

That you’re fragile

Yeah, you’re fragile

Just like me

 

V3: I can see through the armor

I can see through the stone

Why must you be a martyr

When you don’t have to stand alone

 

V4: Just like a Don Quixote

Chasing what isn’t real

Hiding beneath the layers

Of the feelings you won’t feel

 

PreC: But your eyes betray the heart that beats in you

There is no more need to fight, nothing to prove

 

Chorus

 

B: You can hold your head up high and try to make it on your own

And continue with facades upon your face

You can hold your world inside, intent on standing all alone

But loneliness, it doesn’t make you brave

You can let go

You need to let go

You don’t have to be strong

All the time

 

You can let go

You have to let go

You don’t need to be strong

All the time

 

Chorus
