I'm on a ride with a bunch of pop-songs signposted from Synthy Beatmania; through a gang of dirty backstreet guitars; onto some misty-eyed mellow piano and gently plucked acoustic strings of steel. Come and get on!

Biography

I'm busy writing a soundtrack for life. Music is meant to make you FEEL, right? I'm aiming to make you feel happy, sexy, passionate, angry...the whole gamut of emotions from A to Z. For me, an unforgettable melody is the key, with lyrics that grab your ears and don't let go.

Lyrics

You Called Me Beautiful

Written By: Kate Salisbury

V1
It’s an ordinary face I can see
Staring out of the mirror
Though I try to improve it, it’s still me
Not exactly a winner
And I know I won’t stop any traffic
Where I go they don’t ask for my picture
They walk by

CHORUS:
But you…called me beautiful
Yeah, you…called me beautiful

V2
One in a crowd in a town
One of the population
Doing my thing, hanging ‘round
Casual conversation
But I feel like a star in a movie
Like a light is shining upon me
From above

CHORUS:
‘Cos you…called me beautiful
Yeah, you…called me beautiful

BRIDGE 1:
And I never saw myself like that before
Like I rose up from the earth, like I am newborn
You’ve given me this feeling
I didn’t know I needed it
‘Til you called me beautiful

BRIDGE 2:
I thought I was dreaming
I didn’t get your meaning
Then you – you said it again

CHORUS:
Yeah, you…called me beautiful
Yeah, you…called me beautiful

Drag

Written By: Kate Salisbury

What am I doing here?
If I could disappear
I would be heading for the sunshine
Don't want no smoke in my hair
I need some clear air
Don't want traffic for a lullaby
Gonna close my eyes
Gonna hitch a ride
Gonna take me to some mountaintop
Got my leather boots
I'm digging up my roots
I don't wanna let the rot set in

CHORUS
Don't you drag me down
In this stinking town
Don't you drag me down to your level, now.

V2
See that guy from school
Always playing pool
Got two babies by two different girls
Says he'll get a job
But it's easier to rob
Some old lady of her antique pearls
And that cat who said

She would see me dead
She's put a lot of weight on
Stacking shelves
In aisle twelve
She got the Saturday late one again

CHORUS
MIDDLE EIGHT
This place clings to my clothes
Gets up my nose
Wherever I go someone's stalking me
Maybe it's home
But it's got the wrong tone
And isn't it known familiarity
Breeds contempt

CHORUS 2
Don't you drag me down
In this stinking town
Don't you see my foot on the gas pedal, now?
Don't you drag me down
'Cos I'm outward bound
Don't you drag me down to your level, now.

Hey, Woman

Written By: Kate Salisbury

V1:
Dizzy, I'm off the ground, feeling
Giddy, I'm whirling round, I'm lifting up
With this energy
Hold on tight, it's a crazy carousel
Took a flight outside myself

PRE CHORUS:
I'm getting off on pure personality
It's all I need
Do you know the half of what you've got in me?

CHORUS:
Hey, woman, power of the feminine
Hey, woman, gifted with original sin
Hey woman, what a feeling
Baby, I'm in overdrive
Come on, give me five on five

V2:
Ready, I turned the page, I'm dancing
Heady, I'm centre stage, I'm laughing
At the thought of me
Striking out, there's a better shore
Finding out what living's for

PRE CHORUS
CHORUS

MIDDLE EIGHT:
Throwing off in-visibility
Getting louder, no apology
Are you listening? Are you getting me?
No forgetting me
Take a look and see,

PRE CHORUS
CHORUS:
Hey, woman, power of the feminine
Hey, woman, gifted with original sin
Hey woman, what a feeling
Hey, woman, Baby, I'm in overdrive
Hey, woman, come on, give me five on five
Hey woman, what a feeling
etc.
