Bird York

Recommended Posts

I've just ordered Bird Yorks 2nd album The Velvet Hour

She has a really low, sultry voice, and she's so direct and passionate...on this album most of her lyrics seem to be fascinated with the drug of sexual attraction. Lots of smooth grooves, and a few funky beats. It's a perfect listen wherever you are, whatever you're doing.

Her album arrived on my doorstep today.

I've listened to it twice over already.

Amazing, totally, utterly amazing. I've posted the lyrics to some of my favourite songs on her album, so you get the gist of her music, I find them incredibly moving, and the music has really soothed me tonight. Listening to 'Have No Fear" (lyrics at very bottom of page), has moved me to tears, her voice is so haunting.

Haunting You

the days done

and the moon's up

and I'm pacing the cage of my heart

I cannot stop

this aching

always leaves me

dizzy with the need

just wanna feel someone

that's the time I wonder what it is you're doing

and I slip in your mind like a daydream

I am guilty of haunting you

I am the song that stays in your mind

I am the breeze you feel upon you

I am the ghost in your bed stirring your desire

in the silence

in the shadows

in the uncharted land of your heart

you will hear me calling to you saying

don't be afraid of the dark

you're not alone I'm closer than the breath within you

I am under your skin , can you feel it?

Wicked Little High

You're a wrong turn

a big fat No

you're the fifth drink before a long drive home

you're the thing to avoid

the bars to my cage

you're all I think about everyday

you've got that thing

that my wildest dreams are made of

you set my world on fire

I die everytime you walk by

I can't hide that I'm drawn to you

Desire is such a wicked little high

when the one you want is blind to you

you're the third scoop

the second pack

you're the reason for therapy

why I should go back

Hey Mister Wrong

you're the tingle in my jeans

you're everything I don't want

but everything I need

I see other guys

but their kisses don't mean nothin'

'cause you're what I have in mind

I die everytime you walk by

I can't hide that I'm drawn to you

Desire is such a wicked little high

when the one you want is blind to you

you're a wrong turn

a big fat No

you're the fifth drink before a long drive

Save Me

In the afternoon

she sits and waits for him to come

two swollen ankles count the time

Nervous fingers trace

across the cold linoleum

the kitchen wall receives her sigh

"Oh, can you hear me, Joe?"

she tries to call across the veil

Her lips are trembling now

can't hear his voice , can't feel him near

she says "Save me, save me

why don't you save me from the pain of losing you

Save me, save me

why don't you save me from this hell I'm going through"

The dinner table looks so strange without him sitting there

the bed is empty on his side

for forty years this house has held the fire of love they shared

but now the garden slowly dies

He said he'd never leave her alone to face the day

What kind of God is this that'll take him back

and make her stay

"Save me, save me

why don't you save me from the pain of losing you

save me, save me

why don't you save me from this hell I'm going through?

The kids try to come around,

try to make some time to see me,

I know, the busy lives they lead

keep them from these memories"

Come Be With Me

Funny how your eyes keep wandering

everytime I speak of deeper things

my love has no walls, it has no strings

so if you want to go, if you want to leave

when you're ready, when you're ready, when you're ready

come be with me

I don't want to be angry anymore

so speak your truth now even if it hurts

'cause your silence has been whispering

that you're still looking and it's not for me

when you're ready, when you're ready, when you're ready

come be with me

Have No Fear

have no fear in your heart

though you feel you've been broken and lost

there's a place where we will meet up again

there's a place that mends your hurt and takes you in

there are times faced alone

when you find all the holes in yourself

you don't have to walk the night on your own

I will say a prayer for you to lead you on

I will say a prayer for you when you have gone

Just had to bump this one up, I've been listening to Bird York again tonight, and still think she is amazingly talented.

If you have seen the film 'Crash', you will have heard her song 'In The Deep'.

In my opinion, yes.

This link http://cdbaby.com/cd/birdyork2 has song samples you can listen to.

Gives me gorgeous feelings whenever I listen to it. It is the perfect background music to night time antics :grin: You really get lost in the music and find yourself wandering this lovely world...

I've just listened to "Wicked Little High" for the second time (I listened to it when you first recommended it) and I really like it! :coolio: Thank you for the info and links :)

I appreciate and listen to almost all the bands people put up in Get The Word Out, and thank you for taking the time to write a good review of the band/artist and providing links to some of their songs or websites.
