Press releases:

“This girl is awesome… You don’t want to sit there reading about her, get out there and
see this girl play!”- TNT magazine

“Brooke and the band have the whole world at their feet & are undeniably the best live act
we have seen in a long time” - Daily Examiner Australia

“Absolutely F ****g amazing! This girl should be signed immediately, she is unique. It is A1in talent, production, mood and vocals. She has everything you need and want to hear in a song.... perfect job! Take this girl as serious competition, because in my opinion Brooke has raised the bar above and beyond most of the music that I have reviewed on this site so far – Garagebend.com review of single ‘Kelly’ off current Ep Fifth Ave

Lyrics

Automatic Pilot

Written By: Brooke Supple

I live each day just like the last
Dont need to tell me
My dreams are slipping fast
The days are long and the nights are cold
The wind can change direction
Just to bring on a cloudy day

And I'm feeling so much older
Patience is my virtue now

CHORUS
It's alright it's ok
I'm on Automatic Pilot today
And I feel alive, yet I feel so strange
Don't need no systematic science to change

Walking down Fifth Ave
Thinking of times I spent with you
As the rain falls on my face
And I hide emotion
I go through the motions
When I'm an alien in this place

Cause I'm feeling so much older
Patience is my only virtue now

CHORUS

Middle 8:
There's a billboard on the sidewalk
Who do you see?
Could it be my face that's staring in front of me

THE SPARKS

Written By: Brooke Supple

Well love is a complex thing
Too many people handing out diamond rings
Do you take this man for as it stands
Thats what lovers do
Love's not a serious thing
For some people have the audacity
To quietly cheat whilst the wife and the kids dream of a better day
Dream of a better day
And I say

CHORUS
Hey Mister where do you think you're going to?
And he says 'When the sparks have all gone watch me walk out on you'
Hey sister who do you think you're running from?
She says 'If the sparks can't light a fire I'm done...with love'

Verse 2:
Well the Hollywood theory stands
If you're single take him by the hand
Boy meets girl and the rest of the world knows that it wont last
Oh we know that it wont last

KELLY

Written By: Brooke Supple

Kelly's too right to be wrong
Perceiving the world -
like nobody's home
And there's no one to love in return

Kelly's too set in her ways
The job pays a bill -
while the kids get thrill
Out of making fun of you
Like they always do

CHORUS
And I said Kelly - what wld you say?
If some one should take it away?
Kelly - what would you do?
If the whole world...
was laughing at you

Kelly's alone in her room
She's clearing a space -
for her wicked ways
Yet she feels there's just no use

Kelly don't answer the phone
He plays with your mind -
while your trying to find
self control and moral high ground

CHORUS
And I said Kelly what wld you say?
If some one should take it away?
Kelly what woule you do?
If the whole world...
was laughing at you?

Kelly's an optimist true
She firmly believes - she wont die on her knees
But she'll stand tall - Marching on for love
She don't need reminding -
That she is providing
The one thing - she don't get in return

CHORUS OUT...

Best Of Me

Written By: Brooke Supple

Theres something I must say
For years Ive felt this way
Dont turn the cold shoulder
Cause you cant control it at the worst of times

Theres something I must do
But it all comes back to you
You laugh and ignore it
Until the next morning
But you'll find I'm through

And you know that there is something deep inside
But you know you'll always turn to run and hide

You take the best of me
Somehow you've got me to believe
In everything you do
I seemed to have lost my point of view
When it comes to your self control

There's something you must find
The trigger in your mind
Like a second skin
Of when it begins
But youre out of time

And you know that there is something deep inside
But you know you'll always turn to run and hide

You take the best of me
Somehow you got me to believe
In everything you do
I seemed to have lost my point of view
When it comes to your self control
I see the worst of you
In everything you say or do
And the cracks begin to show
When you choose this way to go
Pour the bottle close the door
Cause I can't take it any more
