about

What talent scouts Taxi.com said about The Light-Filled Corner:

"Incredibly well-written songs and emotionally captivating performances. I'm not sure I can put into words how much I appreciate what you've accomplished...you've got to be buried six feet under not to be moved by the captivating performances. Lyrically, you're working at an extremely high level. It's all so incredibly appealing. Really looking forward to hearing more!"

lyrics

I feel desperate some days
Feel like metal some days
She takes the red, takes the grey
Because she is my human hideaway

They expected us to wait
How can they expect us to play it their way
They’ve got another thing coming today
Because she is my human hideaway

You get fragile some days
You get sort of far away
I’m here to tell you, I’m here to stay
Because you are my human hideaway
Hideaway, Hideaway
You know, you are my human hideaway

I get angry some days
Don’t know why I feel this way
Gonna get you, we will get away
Cos you are my human hideaway
Hideaway, Hideaway
You know you are my human hideaway

I said that, some days are lonely days
You know that some days are lonely days
You know that some days are lonely days
Some days are lonely days, some days are lonely days, yeah but

These days are crazy days
You know that, these days they are crazy days
You know that, these days are crazy days
And I can’t wait to reach my hideaway!

Hideaway, hideaway
Cos you are my human hideaway
Hideaway, hideaway
You know, you are my human hideaway

You know, you are my human hideaway

I’ll be home tonight
It’ll be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I will be your human hideaway
Hideaway, Hideaway
I will be your human hideaway
I will be your human hideaway
