BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

Not just another girl with the piano, but a soulful musician, songwriter and a singer with an outstanding sound. An intensive live-act with the intent to come close.

Biography

The drop-out girl, who always insisted on breaking the rules and going her own way. Married with the piano and so found a way to heal through music. After all the turning and tossing around, going through a phase of creative blockage and a musical identity crisis, finally found herself again with the grand piano, more strong with own voice than ever. Woke all the old songs from the dark corners and got to record the first studio album "From the Shelf". Even though mainly singing in english, Rosa is originally from the northern Finland and making some finnish material also.

Lyrics

Sister Bird

Written By: Rosa

I'm hiding my sister, she's waking her skip-to-do
I'm pooling there, your hands alone in there
And I escape 'cause you create a big line fuss
hey you better go on a walk in there

I thought that you'd know this bird

I thought that you'd know

I'm psyching my sister, she's escaping my freak a hoo
I'm hoosing there your hand kit's got a loose in there
In my Jupiter you hang awaiting here
I'm waiting on a haze your barking there

I thought that you'd know this bird

If I'll climb on higher
Will you say we couldn't find her

The Fly

Written By: Rosa

He knows, if he knows
he jumps in his flats and he blows
and he goes, drum flows, and he flows
got a bit of a teaser syndrome
he jumps on little girls in his sunny juice
I wan't a little fur on my jumping suit

Singing to you is what I knew..
singing to you is what I'll do

He knows, if he knows
ain't Frizzie good in the drums
he kicked Johnson, and he froze
he froze in his aim to approach
he knows all little girls in the sunny Street
and Jenny cheers in the alley

Singing to you is what I knew..
singing to you is what I'll do

He knows, what he knows
it ain't good to get stuck in the walls
and he goes on FLIES
FLIES in the breeze to the pole
he flies to Indonesia, next to Kazakstan
and all the world is in his hands , yes

Singing to you is what I knew..
singing to you is what I'll do!

I need a dream

Written By: Rosa

I feel just as if I'm passing through my life
keep your rubber boots in
I've been pale since, I've been pale since
your car stroke on in

I feel just as if I'm passing through my life
the wheel turnin' still

I'm turning, turning, returning

Here I'm standing in my weird little dress
Wonder again if I'll dance
Never was one of those pretty girls in front row

Can't read the book and pretend that I know
should be alive but half way like a stone
swallowed by all my fears with their claws tightly in

Feel the breeze in the mountain kind of wandering

I'm knocking, it seems I'm all EMPTY inside
walking through days - and more to come
and still waiting for a spark to come from the shelf

Time, it wanders, on it's slippery tail
The girl in the corner still awaits
Why I'm not doing what my heart's calling for?

I NEED A DREAM
had a one piece kind of wandering
It ain't real, I need to feel

I feel just as if I'm passing through my life
and the wheel's turning still
I've been pale since, I'll be pale until
death strikes me in

I keep on turning, turning, returning
and you can't go, you can't go there

Sealed Lips

Written By: Rosa Latva

Heirly walking
proudly walking
and I swear
I'll pull the ground under your feet
turn my cheek
and the other cheek
And so I'm left
to linger long in your taste

Don't you tell a soul
you seal your lips
you have never been here
I'll lock the door
in the place it's born
I'll never let you in

Peace, Love = EAT MOSS
Not in the right ...

Keep on talking, keep on talking
with that mouth, it w i l l chew
and it goes on, and on, and on

Peace, Love = Eat MOSS
Not ever right
Don't please shed a tear..
Please don't cry

Atlantis

Written By: Rosa Latva

Maybe I’m watching you go
Maybe not
I don't know if I like this alone
It's a wheel (thing) that's so cross
And my head is tied into the wing-chair
nodding you off
I'm staring at the waves and hope they'd flood you off

I said that it's all right
Maybe it's not
I had it all fine

I'm drowning in Atlantis
you had me in Atlantis
I'm drowning ...

I'm cheating and it's coming
to chase me down
I'm running off with the coolest guy from the lot
If my head's in the sky, then w h e r e am I falling?
You know just where the cheaters keep on going

I said that it's all right
Maybe it's not
I had it all fine

I'm drowning in Atlantis

What if I'll break a way from your distant walls?

CRUEL

Written By: Rosa Latva

Girl you cunning you came from shadows
disguised in good impressions
God needs to tell me something
To give me advice

Cruel

Girl You spread your things, the tiny things
in your art of scene
You'd like to tear me in, to tear me into
a million pieces

Cruel

I don't want to hate you
In your world of twisted nation
I don't need to hate you
While you're nailing me in tension
You bitch, please come on in
I'm not afraid and
I'll present you my sins
I bet it makes you

Cruel
tear me in your e v i l spread girl

Girl, Necessary

Written By: Rosa Latva

I'm hopping to the mountains, hopping to the mountains
saving my soul from the lions
and I curved along the near bench
had a way, a way to stay alive

I'm hopping to the mountains, hopping to the mountains
you rabbit run across the fire on the street
had a hole in which to seek to
and a way to stay alive

Girl, necessary girl, necessary
YOU'RE NOT A FAIRY

I'm hopping to the mountains, hopping to the mountains
you build your walls in attempt to control us
but you're losing what you're keeping
got your things to state aloud

Girl, necessary girl, necessary
YOU'RE NOT A FAIRY

I S I S
if I'll bend my feet on the ground
sure you'll take care of my sound

I'm hopping to the mountains, hopping to the mountains
you seek your bells, even if they're bending
you tell them what you're going to do
"do, do what you're doing now OR
you're gonna die"

End this circus, please
erase my fears
I've come too far to be careful
