Biography

Claire Clarke is a girl who knows what she wants, and when it comes to her eagerly awaited NEW music, she had one very clear goal in mind – To have Fun.
Our Australian Pop-punk dynamo has captured the high-spirited, full-throttle energy that she loves to unleash on-stage. With catchy kick-ass attitude her new music is edgy, tongue in cheek SMASH HITS!...
It’s a marked departure from the darker, more introspective tone of Unhinged which she wrote when she was 17 years old; being an artist with a keen and well-trained ear for powerful, magnetic pop melodies the new album is a collection of songs that reveal just how far she’s evolved as a singer and song writer.
Claire’s at a new stage in her life; she’s passed through the shadows of teen angst and emerged in the spotlight, ready to have fun and rock out!

Lyrics

Crazy Mad About You

Written By: Claire Vickers (Clarke)

CRAZY MAD ABOUT YOU
(C.Clarke & T.Cvetkovski)

I know you’re here
I feel your head
Trace every stare
Everything I said

I go in circles in my head, you’re in my head (you’re in my)

I know it’s real
But I know the deal
You’re all messed up
With how you feel

I can’t unwind without you on my mind (on my mind)
Cos I know how it feels to be without you

CHORUS
Dontcha know
I’m psycho, sick, handle it, keep you chomping at the bit
Certified, in denial, think about you all the time
Take the bait, take your time, but never make me wait in line
Love fool, who knew, I’m crazy mad about you

About you

How do you feel
When I’m around
When I’m with you
Can’t touch the ground

So let’s make out, let’s just get out of here (out of here)
Cos I know how it feels to be without you (without you)

CHORUS (x2)
Dontcha know
I’m psycho, sick, handle it, keep you chomping at the bit
Certified, in denial, think about you all the time
Take the bait, take your time, but never make me wait in line
Love fool, who knew, I’m crazy mad about you

About you (x2)

I feel your hand, I see your eyes, you make your move, to the other side
You cross the room, I’m in your head and with that said…

CHORUS (x2)

Crazy Mad about you!

Shut Your Mouth

Written By: Klaus Dresendorf / Lisa Greene / Lone

SHUT YOUR MOUTH
(Klaus Derendorf / Lisa Greene / Lone)

START ME UP, THEN YOU STOP
SHOOT ME HIGH, THEN YOUR TEMPERATURE DROPS
TAKE THE WHEEL, LET IT GO
I’M SICK OF BEING IN CRUISE CONTROL

U WANNA TALK, COMMUNICATE
BUT I’M JUST THINKIN ‘BOUT YOU AND ME

SPEEDING UP IN THE FAST LANE
A LITTLE ACTION GOES A MIGHTY LONG WAY

HEY, IF YOU WANNA MAKE YOUR LIPS IMPRESS ME
SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME
YEAH, IT TAKES A LITTLE MORE UH TO X ME
TURN IT UP, SHAKE ME DOWN, SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME

TAKE A LEFT, GET OUT YOUR HEAD
TELL ME EVERYTHING AND LEAVE IT UNSAID
SPARK IT UP, YOU’RE COMING CLOSE
AND I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS TO BLOW

TAKE A RIGHT IN THE FAST LANE
A LITTLE SATISFACTION GOES A MIGHTY LONG WAY

HEY, IF YOU WANNA MAKE YOUR LIPS IMPRESS ME
SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME
YEAH, IT TAKES A LITTLE MORE UH TO X ME
TURN IT UP, SHAKE ME DOWN, UH

HEY, IF YOU WANNA MAKE YOUR LIPS IMPRESS ME
SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME
YEAH, IT TAKES A LITTLE MORE UH TO X ME
TURN IT UP, SHAKE ME DOWN, SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME

DON’T WANNA HEAR YOU SAY IT
YOU’RE GOTTA MAKE OUT
OH BOY YOU’RE OVERTHINKING
DON’T LEAVE ME HANGIN WHEN I WANNA GET A MESSAGE TO YOU

HEY, IF YOU WANNA MAKE YOUR LIPS IMPRESS ME
SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME
YEAH, IT TAKES A LITTLE MORE UH TO X ME
TURN IT OUT, SHAKE ME DOWN, SPIN ME ROUND, SET IT OFF, PUT IT ON

HEY, IF YOU WANNA MAKE YOUR LIPS IMPRESS ME
SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME
YEAH, IT TAKES A LITTLE MORE UH TO X ME
TURN IT UP, SHAKE ME DOWN, SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KISS ME

All Been Done

Written By: Claire (Vickers) Clarke / Cadell / Caruana

Here we go it’s on again
I guess you didn’t read my letter
Do I have to spell it out
Why are we together?

You’re a cold person
A lame version
Of the guy that I once knew
I’ve had enough
It’s just not love
You’re no good
You’re no good for me

CHORUS
This mess in my head
It’s so un-perfect
Ever since you’ve been around
I’d play the part
But you’re not worth it
It’s time to shut you down
I could wrap you round my finger
Just for fun - Ah ha
I could give you melodrama
But it’s all been done

Take your pictures of a life you messed up
Coz you just can’t get it together
We’re going nowhere, so don’t even you dare
You should know better

I was in your pocket
But we didn’t rock it
Cos you still didn’t wanna see
It’s not enough
It’s just not love
You’re no good
You’re no good for me

Go Away

Written By: (C.Vickers/T.Cvetkovski)

It’s shaping up to be nothing new
And I’m sick of being your Sunday morning
Waking up to the sight of you just
Waiting for me to get going
n I don’t wanna change your mind but I cannot be
Your Madonna
You told me you were satisfied
So what are you doing talking to her all night

Stop this fight, you gotta give it up
I said stop this fight, you gotta give up

CHORUS
You keep telling me there’s no way that you are any better off
And I can’t face the world alone no, not today, not today
You left me here so you could go and be with her
You made your bed that’s where you stay
Just go away

I really thought that we were something true
Not just a blank page in your diary
Ready to be ripped and bruised
Some pulp fiction for your mates on Friday
Then you tell me it’s all my fault
That I’m the one who should say sorry
Am I deaf or did I hear your right
Cos I swear I heard you didn’t sleep in my bed all night

Stop this fight, you gotta give it up
I said stop this fight, you gotta give it up

CHORUS
Just go away

No more Sunday mornings for ya
No more midnight calling for ya
No more of the you and me
No more happy, not happy

CHORUS
Just go away… Just go away

Hello

Written By: Kane / Young

HELLO

Daddy's working day and night,
Gotta keep the world running on time,
Says he keeps the family fed..
Mother's got a boyfriend,
Sees him on the weekend,
Tells her friends "he's dumb,
But at least he's good in bed"..

She sits in her room,
Painting silver, black and blue,
She brushes her hair,
Talks to herself..

Says hello,
Hello,
Hello,
I'm the luckiest girl the world!
Hello,
Hello..

Sports car, swimmin' pool,
Baby's in a private school,
Everybody says shes a perfect ten..
Cash is spent, lotta front,
Divin' in the deep end,
Gotta go, Undertow,
Draggin' her down again..

She's drunk and in bed with someone she just met,
Thinks its nothing new..
She's not really there,
And he doesnt care..

Says hello,
Hello,
Hello,
To the luckiest girl in the world,
Hello,
Well hello..

Sometimes it seems too much is never enough,
There's nothing that's real,
There's nothing she can touch..
She's making a plan,
But it slips through her hands,
It splinters,
It shatters,
It bursts..

Says hello,
Hello,
Hello,
I'm the luckiest girl in the world!
Hello,
Hello..

Says hello,
(Sports car, swimmin' pool, babys in a private school)
Hello,
(Everybody says shes a perfect ten)
Hello,
I'm the luckiest girl in the world..

(Cash is spent, lotta front, divin' in the deep end)
Hello,
(Gotta go, undertow, draggin' her down again)
Hello..

Hello,
Hello,
Hello,
I'm the luckiest girl in the world..
Hello,
Hello..

Hello..

XOXO

Written By: (C.Vickers-Clarke/D.Nicholas/M.Stangel)

XOXO
LOL OH
Yeah no Yeah No
So Disconnected

You posted me on facebook, only took the one look
We typed and talked for hours, virtual hearts and flowers
(n) Telling you all my secrets, sending you all my pictures.
I trusted what you said, you were the voice in my head

The minute that I met you,
You're not the guy I knew

CHORUS
XOX Oh (Oooh) Your gonna miss it
LOL Oh (Oooh) This thing is twisted
Yeah no Yeah no (Oooh) So Disconnected
XOXO (Oooh)

I’ve blocked you on my profile, you are still in denial
You’re always on my case, stalking me on myspace
You lied about you DOB, your FAVs, your BMI
You hide behind your neon screen, fake who you wanna be

The minute that I met you,
You're not the guy I knew..

CHORUS

BRIDGE
What happened to good old fashioned romance
Now it’s messed up makeshift mind warps
Your are not what I thought

I’ve disconnected
You’ve been rejected
I’ve pulled the plug
On cyber love
We are not meant to be
Want face to face I wanna feel

Oh Oh
You have mail
You have one new notification
So disconnected So Disconnected!

CHORUS til end
Outro (Oooh)

Be Where You Are

Written By: (C.Vickers-Clarke & T.Cvetkovski)

The lights slide past the window
Don’t wanna go out there
Without you
Just wanna hear your voice
Don’t have no choice
But to call you

It’s worthwhile the way you look at me
Swear my whole body wakes up to the feeling
I wish I’d been, never blind to it, always there where you are

CHORUS
Sleep tight and don’t forget
IN the sky and here is lonely
I’d like to think that you’ll be waiting
They ask me what’s my secret
And baby I just wanna keep it
I wanna keep you, and be where you are

Makes no sense in my mind
The way I’m feeling now
About you
Won’t be long just hold on
Will you meet me
I wish you knew

How my heart is wrapped in ribbons
All I do is relive what I’ve been thinking
I wish id been, never blind to it, always there where you are

CHORUS (x2)
Be where you are
Be where you are

BRIDGE
When I’m around you, When I’m around you, I feel like, I just might
Don’t wanna lose you, cos when I’m around you, I feel like
I just might ignite

CHORUS (x2)

Be where you are (x3)
