Biography

Armed with her megaphone, the underground Princess
knows how to make herself heard, in English or in Mandarin. When
performing live, she gets transformed into a hostess that sieges the
masses with hypnotic electro/trip-hop. Raised in Hong
Kong, and then passed through San Francisco, Montreal and Berlin, this
young lady has seen the world and hopes to conquer it. Bonnie Li
makes more and more concerts around the globe, to bring out the
important messages on the status of women, gender, or sexuality, that
lie behind her music. Meanwhile a first album is planned this year, the duo Air Bonnie Li, that she forms with Elia M, releases in February a third EP entitled “PLANE-CRASH“.
An ironic title as her career seems not only safe from flight
accidents, but destined to always have a little bit more of altitude.

Lyrics

Heart of Nature

Written By: BONNIE LI

Intro:

Heart of Nature, Heart of Nature,
Heart of Nature, Heart of Nature,
X2

Verse 1:

When I go on the streets or like in a club,
The people stare at me as if I was naked
Although I try not to pay too much attention,
I know what they’re thinkin’
I feel like a piece of meat
I know what you’re thinkin’
Everybody wants to..

Back:

The sun, the trees, the river the seas
X4

Verse 2:

When I go on the streets or like in a club,
The people stare at me as if I was naked
Although I try not to pay too much attention,
I know what they’re thinkin’
I feel like a piece of meat
I know what you’re thinkin’
Everybody wants to fuck, fuck, me

Pull a needle from the back of my head
Brake the temple, turn on the light,
Open the windows to get rid of the smell,
Burn a candle,
Pull out my memories

A voodoo doll,
I don’t wanna be,

Put me back in the supermarket
In the rack of a special sale
Doesn’t matter I’m no supermodel
Burn the idol
Pull out my memories

Voodoo doll,
I don’t wanna be, My life
A voodoo doll,
Anymore Is just too sad

Stalker

Written By: BONNIE LI

Verse 1:
I’m feeling anxious,
I don’t know why,
There’s no particular reason to be stressed out,
But I am nervous,
Even the sky,
Here in Paris is filled with heavy dark grey clouds,

Mist-shrouded shadows,
Climb up the walls
I wonder why there’s broken-glass on the floor
Scuff on the vinyl,
I’m paranoid,
Should I risk a peek in the front-door’s hole?

Chorus:
Why don’t you be my coat tonight It’s cold
And it’s raining in the bedroom,
Can’t see the ceiling anymore,
Too scared to check if,
The stalker’s under the bed
X2

Verse 2:

Head to toe Fisled,
No hues and cries,
I knew you had a storyline in mind,
If I am the one,
Consenting mouse,
Can you say for sure who’s the victim now?

Wrist in the handcuffs just for a while,
I’m givin’ the lead,
You should take advantage on that,
Twist into the scarf to blind my eyes,
Even if it is hurtin’,
I don’t mind

Chorus:

Why don’t you be my coat tonight I’s cold
And it’s raining in the bedroom,
Can’t see the ceiling anymore,
Too scared to check if,
The stalker’s under the bed
X2
Be my stalker under the bed,
Be the stalker under my bed.

Today Gangster bought me a new ring,
Has a shiny golden coin on it

Even with this fuckin’ rainy day,
Makes me feel like a queen

Feels like I’m in a past century
With a fancy crowd surrounding me,
How I just love my time-machine ring

There’s something strange I think it’s you,
I think it’s you
