Delicate and ephemeral pop-rock featuring melancholic grooves and intimate lyrics.

Biography

AWIM began as a collaboration between Anna He, an Israeli
singer-songwriter, and Jean Pierre Taieb, a well-known
composer and producer in France.

Anna He is a self-taught singer and pianist.

"For her, the music is happening across the senses, as an
animated painting that transforms bold strokes of color into
an ambient panorama, travels in the spaces between sanity
and confusion, between life and death. Her own music
exists as a contradiction of her desire to uncover her pain,
unleashing her inner self and her jealously guarded privacy.
AWIM stands for Angels Whisper In Me, and the music
speaks for those nearly unheard voices."

AWIM - is currently working on their second album.

AWIM - has recently collaborated with Kevin Wood
(brother of Andrew Wood) doing a cover of Mother Love
Bone's "Bone China".

AWIM - Is on the soundtrack of the film "Frontier(s) with
the song "Kill Me". The movie was released in the U.S.A
on May 9th 2008. Directed by Xavier Gens.

AWIM - is featured on the world-wide commercial for
Nivea called "Goodbye Cellulite".

AWIM - is on the soundtrack of the film "Au Petit Matin"
(Official Selection at Venice Film Festival Summer
2005) directed by Xavier Gens with the song "At Dawn"
from their first album.

About "Set Me Free":

Anna He recorded a 30 second jingle for a television
advertisement. "The response was amazing. We (NMC Music)
decided to try something new and asked Anna to complete the
song and release it as her 1st single.The single was shipped
as a white label. This generated a huge buzz around the song,
creating rumors on who the artist was, was it a band? Where
did it come from? No one imagined that it originated in Israel.
And as they say the rest is history." The song "Set Me Free"
entered the "IDF Galgalatz" playlist (Israel's leading national
radio station) on heavy rotation, where it has stayed for 8
weeks. Every single one of the other regional and national
radio stations quickly followed. "Set Me Free" was one of the
most played songs in Israel. It entered the charts at No. 5 and
remained at No. 1 for 6 weeks (on the playlist for over 12
weeks), rivaling with some of the biggest international stars
such as Celine Dion, Kyllie Minogue and Eminem. The song
was commercially released on the "Originals 4" compilation,
one of the best selling compilations in Israel.

Lyrics

Tom

Written By: aNNa hE

Tom

He walked among the crowd,
like an angel
The love he spread around,
with grace and laughter
The silence in his eyes,
dived into the ocean's wild.

He came into my life,
like a savior
The way he touched the sky,
with fear and hunger
Come to me beloved,
chant with me your lullaby.

Chorus:

A I a I a I a,
When you're young and die
There's a fallen star that
sings your song
And shines your last
and lonely cry.

A I a I a I a,
When you're young and die
There's a lonely dove that
brings you home
And shares your last
and only flight.

He lived among his crowd,
like a gentle
He knelt before the kind,
with tears and tender
The joy he held inside,
filled his aching world.

Chorus

There's a Secret In Me

Written By: aNNa hE

There's a Secret In Me

In the darkness naked empty streets
I walk in my dreams and stare,
digging in no man's land
Waiting for the beast to emerge
and shake me
Am I on solid ground,
I feel insecure
I have to fit the picture
Looking at the pages of my life
I am empty floating loveless,
I am empty floating loveless.

Chorus:

There's a secret in me,
growing deep inside.
Waiting for the moment to shine at me
and fills all my desires.
There's a secret in me,
seeping deep inside.
Craving for the moment to smile at me
and feeds all of my wishes.

You've reached out across the seas
you melted me in your touch
and wrapped me.
To catch me whenever i fall
I want to be able to lose
myself in you.
Making love with words
you make me swoon,
I am shivering with desire,
Exploring each others mind
until our gasps fill the air,
until our gasps fill the air.

Chorus

Just a little story i can give you...
Until our gasps fill the air...

In the darkness naked empty streets,
I walk in my dreams and stare
Captured in my fantasy,
just wanna make my joy sing,
just wanna make my joy sing.

Chorus

Set Me Free

Written By: aNNa hE / Ofer Meiri

Set Me Free

There's a love bird
whispering in my ear,
There's a fire burning
in my heart,
There's a feel of joy
inside my head,
Can you hear my prayer

Chorus:

Set me free, aha aha,
Set me free, heal me.

There's a wide world
waiting to hear my name,
There's a sense of brightness
in my mind,
There's a ray of light
deep in my soul,
Can you hear my prayer

Chorus

Out my window, there's nothing,
to shake my precious heart.
Peaceful colors, remind me
that winters are far behind.
Over my sorrows,
there's something higher,
nothing will ever turn me down.
Out of my window
there's a tomorrow...

Chorus

Coming Home

Written By: aNNa hE

Coming Home

A single suitcase
in your hand,
An old scent guides you
to your past.
Cause somebody's waiting for you,
There's someone who's waiting...

Chorus:

You're on the road,
you're coming home,
To share the latest
ray of hope.
You're on the road
to find the answer
to your grief.

An endless field covers
your feet,
A laughing voice blurs all
your fears.
Cause somebody's longing for you,
There's someone who's longing...

Chorus

You're on the road...

Come into your evergreen,
Come into your evergreen.

I Was The One

Written By: aNNa hE

I Was The One

I was the one, who took it all
and now I'm gone.
Melt in the sounds of night.
Why did she go, I don't know why
but now it's too late.
Too late for the dawn again.

Chorus:

I only wanna see it one time again,
I only wanna feel.
I guess it's just a matter of time,
but we know what we do,
know what we do.

Some days I have pride,
But there's a price, nothing to hide,
Nothing to hold inside.
Wake up and see me waiting,
Waiting for the sun.
But I know what I know tonight.

Chorus:

She's on her way to find
the things she hide,
And she don't care.
With all the dreams
she fought for them.

Cry... again

I cry... again

Reflections

Written By: aNNa hE

I Was The One

I was the one, who took it all
and now I'm gone.
Melt in the sounds of night.
Why did she go, I don't know why
but now it's too late.
Too late for the dawn again.

Chorus:

I only wanna see it one time again,
I only wanna feel.
I guess it's just a matter of time,
but we know what we do,
know what we do.

Some days I have pride,
But there's a price, nothing to hide,
Nothing to hold inside.
Wake up and see me waiting,
Waiting for the sun.
But I know what I know tonight.

Chorus:

She's on her way to find
the things she hide,
And she don't care.
With all the dreams
she fought for them.

Cry... again

I cry... again

Eagles

Written By: aNNa hE

Eagles

That morning seemed to be
an ordinary day.
She was busy as usual.
The sky was bright and the
seagulls on their way
to reach their home.

She stood outside when
hell touched the ground,
She could hear the
sirens all over,
She saw the vicious pictures
on the TV screen,
and it was dark.

Chorus

So she came to me,
rage is here again.
And said to me
evil's here again.
Cried out with fears,
death is here again.
They're all gone with the wind,
the eagles landed at dawn.

She looked outside at
all the misery.
People were thrown all over.
She closed her eyes to
slip of all that cruelty,
and the world remained silent.

Chorus

That morning seemed to be
an ordinary day
She was yearning for comfort.
The sky was lightless and
evil on it's way
to settle down.

Butterflies

Written By: aNNa hE

Butterflies

I try to hear
if the butterflies
are just coming over...
Don't try to rush,
if the road to your kingdom
takes me further...

Chorus:

The seashore is closer
The distance to your dream
is getting shorter.
Cause life is no torture
The majestic wizard
is waving towards us.

I try to see,
if the butterflies
are just passing over...
Don't try to hide,
if the way to your garden
pulls me deeper...

Chorus

Coloured visions
and colours in my mind...
The softness of your whisper,
the softness of your whisper,
I try to hear.

Chorus

I try to hear,
if the butterflies
are coming over
I try to see,
if the butterflies
are passing over

I try to hear
I wish to see

Broken Wings

Written By: aNNa hE

Broken Wings

Hold me, indulge me,
I feel the cold breeze
come in between.
Southe me, caress me,
I sink into
your lonely horizon.
I know that you
fear the approach.
And I am aware of
all your weaknesses.
So I say that it's a
give and take world,
it's a give and take world,
don't you know...

Chorus

Living is a constant battle,
so don't you walk out on me
and leave me with broken wings.
Sometimes I move through empty spaces,
and it seems like,
that nothing touches me.
Living is a constant battle,
so don't you walk out on me
and leave me with broken wings.
Sometimes I move through empty spaces
and i'm tired,
that nothing touches me.

Touch me, explore me,
bring all that's tender,
and drown your despair in me.
Sense me, possess me,
surrender to your
deepest emotions.
I know that you
fear the unknown.
And I am aware of
all your wishes.
So I say that it's a
give and take world,
it's a give and take world,
don't you know...

Chorus

Private Story

Written By: aNNa hE

Private Story

There was once upon a time,
a little child
who lived her stories.
She had a different life
a different smile,
she couldn't bear it

Chorus:

She struggled beyond fear,
to reach a brighter day.
She fought for her differences,
she rose above her tears.

She lived behind her doors
inside her walls,
she had no barriers.
She had a little wish,
a little hope,
she panted silently.

Chorus

She struggled beyond fear,
to live a lighter day
She fought for her differences,
she rose above her tears.

Can you hear me

Chorus

There was once upon a time,
a little child
who lived her stories.

Fill Me Up

Written By: aNNa hE

Fill Me Up

It's time to start,
time to get up now.
There's a waking sound
that calls me out.
It is my time,
I'm breathing.
Leaning on the
shades of past.
I'm bleeding from inside
Holding back the emptiness.

Chorus:

Fill me up right now,
up and down.
Pull me out right now
from the dark.
The pouring rain
will sweep the dust.
Another day to
heal the past.

Broken to pieces,
I'm trying to gather,
what is left.
I know there's a reason
why we all remain alive.
I'm willing
to find it.
Staring at the
future's eyes
It's waving, breathing,
Coloring my passioned heart.

Chorus

One days those winters
will fade for ever
from my road.
I'm covering my wounded past
And here I go again,
So let me try again.

Chorus

Kill Me

Written By: Jean Pierre Taieb

Kill Me

Loving your dream,
carrying your pain.
Watching me going
slowly to my grave.
Didn't know you,
didn't know you.
Sipping hatred in a
glass of milk.
Injecting fears in my
brittle little veins.
Didn't know you,
didn't know you.

Talking nonsense to me,
I wish i could believe.
Living me untended
so little left to give.

Chorus:

Kill me I'm a monster
you made me cruel but I'm
not a failure.
Kill me I'm a monster
I beg you now cause I'm
not a killer.
Heal me I'm a monster
You spill my blood cause I'm
just a dreamer.
Kill me I'm a monster
You made me cry it will
soon be over.
Kill me I'm a monster
You made me cruel but I'm
not a failure.
Kill me I'm a monster
You made me cry it will
soon be over.

Floating in your dream
driven by your aim.
Faking to be in
laughing at my pain.
laughing at my pain.

Needed just a ride
with a lovely maid.
Sifting trough your light
tearing me to shreds.
Blood's coming to my head.

Chorus
