Biography

Sarah Eida - a mystique, sultry red head who knows how to create a storm with her bold, breath taking voice.

Sarah performs her music like an open diary, with guitar and piano creating an ambient atmosphere and connection between her and the audience. She writes songs about certain life experiences and sometimes reveals her imaginary world.

Sarah began learning classical piano at the age of seven and by thirteen she discovered that music was her life. After watching a boot leg video of the Smashing Pumpkins Live in Rio, Sarah was in awe and wanted to play the guitar. She took guitar lessons and developed an interest in songwriting.

Over the years Sarah discovered many bands and solo artists that inspired her creativity. She formed bands, joined bands and left bands until she decided to go solo at twenty.

Sarah has done some daring things like giving Tori Amos her Demo when she was on The Bee Keeper Tour in May 2005. She also got a couple of her supportive friends to give The Dresden Dolls her CD and received a very good response from their drummer, Brian Viglione. Early December in 2007, 'Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer came down to Australia for her solo tour, promoting her album 'who killed Amanda Palma'. Sarah Eida got the chance to meet the wonderful Amanda and give her a copy her promo dvd.

Sarah is currently signed to independent label Herstory Records, and artist management company Sweet Cecelia Entertainment. She has released 2 EPs, State of Minds and Trophie Girl and is about to release a music video, Trophie Girl in coming months.

Watch out for Sarah.. she is an amazing star on the rise!

Lyrics

Lies From the Other Side

Written By: Sarah EiDA


Sitting waiting for Nothing
Staring at the tiled walls
waiting for nothing to happen
in your land of broken promises

So many black holes
that lead to Insanity
I wanna dig the old graves
you really must be bored and lonely

Lies lies lies, from the other side
Lies lies lies, and waste my time
Lies lies lies and break her heart
lies lies lies and Butterflies

sitting
waiting
crying
defining
fighting
trying to explain my innocence
That’s when Hypocrisy comes in
and he tells you that he's paranoid
that you will lie to him and you will cheat on him.
when he's really cheating of you.

So many black holes
that lead to Insanity
I wanna dig the old graves
you really must be from the middle of no where

Lies lies lies, from the other side
Lies lies lies, and waste my time
Lies lies lies and break her heart
lies lies lies and dragonflies

oh I can feel the heat from Egypt
the sun Goddess will burn your soul
you've only made yourself more lonely
and you’ve made my blood boil some more

Lies lies lies, from the other side
Lies lies lies, and waste my time
Lies lies lies and break her heart
lies lies lies and Butterflies

Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore
Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore

Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore
Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore

Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore
Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore

Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore
Never never again, never again
You won’t get to me anymore

Never never again, never again
She's not listening to you anymore.

Trophie Girl

Written By: Sarah EiDA


I was just a trophie
I was just a trophie
I was just a trophie girl

Hangin off my shoulders
Lookin’ like a winner, but do you ever think of how I feel?
Big mother fuckin smile on your face
after you just dipped your will in my grace
you may be physically satisfied
but do you ever think about whats inside?
Coz I was just a trophie
I was just a trophie
I was just a trophie girl
Hangin off my shoulders
lookin like a winner, but do you ever think of how I feel.

Oh you will never understand
you will never understand
you will never understand what’s going on and
Oh you will never understand
You will never understand
you will never see what’s inside of me

All of these words are comin’ out of my mouth
and they mean absolutely nothing to you
so you just tell me to shut my mouth anyway
but I refused to bottle it up inside
Coz I was just a Trophie
I was just a trophie
I was just a trophie girl

Ya passin her around like a rag doll
ya passin her around like a rag doll

Oh you will never understand
you will never understand
you will never understand what’s going on and
Oh you will never understand
You will never understand
you will never coz you're so young boy.

Ya passin her around like a rag doll
ya passin her around like a rag doll
Ya passin her around like a rag doll
ya passin her around like a rag doll

My Forgotten Ruin

Written By: Sarah EiDA


when time goes by you will always be my forgotten Ruin
You don't know how to love yourself before you loved me
so I hold my breath and close my eyes
praying to make sure that you're ok

And I understand this kind of suffering
and there is a reason for everything so I am
i am going to let you go
the snow comes and goes and the sun goes up and down
I take a deep breath and I smile when i am feeling down
so hold your head high boy

No, I don't even know you
and you and I both know that we never even met
but it seems like and it feels like yesterday
but there is a consequence for everything

you made a choice when you found your first time
and then you missed out when the siren was calling you
Now she's fading away
and there will come a time where you'll be sitting on your own
you'll see the color red and you'll ask yourself
what if
what if

So Im going back as a lone wolf
howling at the moon
and baby when you hear me
you'll know that its me thinking of you

So I’m going back
as a lone wolf
standing on my own
And baby when you see me
you'll know that its me
with my feet on the ground

when time goes by
you will always be my forgotten ruin
and you, you need to know
how to love yourself before you say I love you.

Pagans on Fire

Written By: Sarah EiDA


Today is the day that I open my eyes
I’m putting my foot in the door
my eyes maybe blue and they cleave through your souls
but I am not surprised that you take that to a bad place

quick, run, hide, they think we're evil
do this spell some other day
please don't tie me up on the stake
coz I was just doing what I had to do

FEAR, is the greatest evil of all
well geesze look at what’s going on today
and even yesterday
and my hair is red as a constant reminder
for the people like you yeah you

I’m that fire burning in the witch that you set fire to
and you cant get away with this coz you know you're not innocent too.

its so easy to smile at you now
as you try to sell my soul to your god
Ill say a little prayer for you and mother and father will know just what to

quick, run, hide, they think we're evil
do this spell some other day
please don't tie me up on the stake
coz I was just doing what I had to do

quick, run, hide, they think we're evil
do this spell some other day
please don't burn me on your cross
coz I was just doing what I had to do

In This Moment

Written By: Sarah EiDA


waiting on the train on my usual daily bases,
sitting in last carriage as I usually do
visions of the Atlantic ocean covered in snow
my heart started to break when i felt your tears
running down your face
Running down you face

I’m usually a tough girl when it comes to shit like this
but i've never been so valued since two thousand BC
the language that I speak to you, you can only understand
I've seen through eyes before when you found me lost in the woods

and in this moment, you're so far away
in this moment you take me away
and in this moment, you're so far away
in this moment you take me away

I don't care what they say
we know ourselves right now
a couple of signatures on a piece of paper wont stop us right now
our love is to strong and higher than hitler’s arm, reaching higher and high into the sky

and in this moment, you're so far away
in this moment you take me away
and in this moment, you're so far away
Far away.

Lover and Best Friend

Written By: Sarah EiDA


There was this guy
That I use to know
He had a lover and a best friend
That was a woman too.
And him and his best friend
Have been mates for many years
They got a lot of memories to share
And laugh about too.

If you saw them together
You would assume that they were any other couple
The way they nudge there Elbows
With a cheeky little smile
As she flashes her cleavage on the pool table
Yeah

So this is the next part
Where I talk about his lover
She was beautiful and sweet
But it’s only been a couple of months
Now he absolutely adores
Her cute little smile
But he only comes to see her
Every once a while

Deep inside she’s so shit scared
The way he looks into his best friend smile
She wants to scream but she fakes a little smile
Oh it’s so easy to just turn around and walk away
Do do do do do doooo

Until one day, his best friend came
With some sad, sad news that would change his face
She said I am living in Russia for a couple of months
And his lover couldn’t understand why he was so upset

So, Baby, for goodness sakes.
I’m standing here in patience and despair
Just take my hand it will be ok.
Its either being with you or me in the crazy
Do do do do do dooo
Do do do do do doooo hooooo

Now you see them together
You would assume that they were any other couple
The way they nudge there Elbows
With a cheeky little smile
As I take the next cue
For the pool table

Nature of the Beast

Written By: Sarah EiDA


I felt it
I saw it comin like the next big thing
I can hear it, hear the calling. The calling of the Nature of the beast
And I saw that comin miles away
Yeah I saw that comin miles away.

You’re a sly one
Aren’t you baby?
The king of all the devils advocates
You got what you wanted
By taking the 3 out of 5
And I saw that comin miles away
I said I saw that comin miles away

That’s the Nature of the Beast
It comes around at the least
I almost thought you were my friend
I guess these parties never end
Sometimes a man just wants to watch the world burn
Coz that’s the Nature of the Beast…

It feels like I’ve a escaped from the dangers of reality
I am too beautiful to be ditched in the gutters of your misery
And I know that you faked it to trick me
And I saw that comin miles away
I said I saw that comin miles away

That’s the Nature of the Beast
It comes around at the least
I almost thought you were my friend
I guess these parties never end
Sometimes a man just wants to watch the world burn
Coz that’s the Nature of the Beast…

3 Knives are stabbing in my back
Ones clean and one is rusty
And the other one is jagged up my spine
The testosterone is pumpin up
You’re right and every one is wrong
Well I choose to disagree with you
And I saw that comin miles away
I said I saw that comin miles away
I said I saw you comin miles away

That’s the Nature of the Beast
It comes around at the least
I almost thought you were my friend
I guess these parties never end
Sometimes a man just wants to watch the world burn
Coz that’s the Nature of the Beast…

Games

Written By: Sarah EiDA


I like to play
Games
Games that tease me and make me cry
Seduce me in the eye
It’s the cheating and lying and the screaming
That makes the day more fun

Its just the state of mind that I’m in
Ill despise any girl who tries to win
There’s no silly games like chess
Or Monopoly
Its just the state of mind that I’m
In
Yeah
Oh
Yeah

It’s the teasing and crying and the screaming
That makes the day more fun
I’m really good at guessing games
So I guess I don’t mean much to you

It was hiding in the back of my head
When you seduced me
From all ya little secrets

Its just the state of mind that I’m in
Ill despise any girl who tries to win
There’s no silly games like chess
Or Monopoly
It’s just the state of mind that I’m
In
Yeah
Oh
Yeah

(instrumental explosion)

Its just the state of mind that I’m in
Ill despise any girl who tries to win
There’s no silly games like chess
Or Monopoly
It’s just the state of mind that I’m
In
Yeah
Oh
Yeah

Secret Garden

Written By: Sarah EiDA


Went to your Garden the other day
Wasn’t the same Like it was before
You burnt all the roses and cut down you trees
What the hell happen to you that day?

Went to your Garden the other day

Wasn’t the same Like it was before
I never knew that Roses could bleed
Like the way my broken heart bleeds
What the hell happen to you that day?

High High High
Into the sky sky sky
Mad Mad Mad
Mad as the Ha ha-atter

High High High
Into the sky sky sky
Mad Mad Mad
Mad as the Ha ha-atter

Suddenly I woke up and realised
The blood didn’t come from those Roses
I looked at the knife in my hand
Thinking in shock that it wasn’t a dream
So what the hell happen to me that day?

High High High
Into the sky sky sky
Mad Mad Mad
Mad as the Ha ha-atter

High High High
Into the sky sky sky
Mad Mad Mad
Mad as the Ha ha-atter
Mad as the ha ha atter

High High High
Into the sky sky sky
Mad Mad Mad
