Biography

Sarah Tancer is.....Vocalist, Songwriter, Actor, Physical Theatre Artist, Voice over Artist, Costumer, Improviser...Northern California girl turned New Yorker. Genetically inspired by her opera singer grandmother, Sarah started singing and playing the piano when she was a wee lass. In her teens she began training in classical, jazz and standard repertoire, going on to be a featured California jazz soloist and to perform at Carnegie Hall. Her great fascination however was with the craft of song, and the great masters of phrase and melody like Porter and Gershwin, which started a lifelong obsession with the art of giving voice to the stories of the human condition. With that mission in tow, Sarah moved to New York to study classical theatre at NYU and the Stella Adler Conservatory. As a member of the Adler company, she co-developed/choreographed and composed a vocal score theatre piece, 'Where Ravens Rule' which received the Edinburgh Fringe First Award. She went on to have a four year residency with dance theatre company 'Collision Theory'. On hiatus from the stage, Sarah returned to her music with a strong conviction to infuse her writing with the movement, depth and layering she has learned from her theatrical experience. Her aim is to deliver universal sentiments with a unique and fluid style, using her ability to characterize and shapeshift to deliver distinctive color to all of her projects. Sarah has recently forayed into the world of electronic and house music. Her new single 'Secret' with producer the Scumfrog has just been released and getting a lot of airtime on Sirius Radio. She has also been played on Pete Tongs Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 and on Roger Sanchez' radio show 'Release Yourself'. Sarah's single "I've got Something for You" on Subliminal Records is number 3 on the charts in Nocturnal magazine.

Lyrics

everything

Written By: sarah tancer


Verse 1)

all i want is to stare into the sun and not go blind
all i want is to hold my breath too long and never die
i want to swallow you whole and still enjoy your taste, red line you home no slow and steady race
i get trigger happy when i get my way, if i cross the line would you let me stay

Chorus:

all that i want is everything
imagination overload i never want to let you go. all i ever wanted was everything

Verse 2)

all i feel is the insurrection growing in my head
all i see is the kingdom and the crown ill never get
can i hold reason for ransom, bargain with the truth?
i know there is someway to steal the devil's loot. Ill stop at nothing to feed my greed. A taste of everything is all I need

Chorus:

all that i want is everything
intoxication vertigo, i never want to let you go. all i ever wanted was everthing

Bridge:

Ill multiply how much I get to keep. I'll magnify your substance in my sleep. But it's never quite enough of what I need. I still have to. I still want to. I still want you.

V3)
am i falling from grace when i jump off from the edge, i cant take it back its already the end.

Chorus:

all that i want is everything
demolition no control i never want to let you go, all i ever wanted was everything.

amnesia

Written By: sarah tancer

I should have seen the water come
the undertow like opium. And when I saw your face i flew. Oh no, it couldnt be true. That I forgot everything I knew. It's like the Sweetest Amnesia, I can recall.

Should I retrace back to the start, I think Ive disappeared too far. But now you've hidden every clue. Oh no it couldnt be true. That I forgot everything I knew. Its like the Sweetest Amnesia, I can recall.

Where did you hide the....? I cant seem to find my...I guess its all right.
Swallow me up, my mind is a stranger. Am I in danger? Oh no, I forgot...everything I knew....its like, the Sweetest Amnesia, I can recall...oh well, oh no.....

Beautiful Cocoon

Written By: Sarah Tancer

Verse 1)

Making my way through all the old entanglements
Wading through all the words I'll never hear again
The story's coming clear, I lost another year
You ruled the world you made the water come and go
I let myself dissolve into your untertow
You were mesmerizing, all sufficing, hate to say it, paralyzing

Chorus:

And I get too high on you
I hate to be alone
I crawl inside of you like a solitary home
You wrapped your love around me like the comfort of a womb
I stayed too long in hiding just to feel your every move
I was totally consumed
But I'm leaving you
My Beautiful Cocoon

Verse 2)

Weaving the line where we should never intersect
I misunderstand the way that love's supposed to fit
My head is coming clear. I like to disappear
If I were to take you down from off your lonely throne
I'd get to rule the world a moment on my own
You were mesmerizing, all sufficing, hate to say it, paralyzing

Chorus

And I get too high on you
I hate to be alone
I crawl inside of you like a solitary home
You wrapped your love around me like the comfort of a womb
I stayed too long in hiding just to feel your every move
I was totally consumed
But I'm leaving you
My Beautiful Cocoon

Bridge

Oh my lazy love, Oh my lazy lazy love

I woke to you like the sun was rising, all the while I was compromising

Chorus:

And I get too high on you
I hate to be alone
I crawl inside of you like a solitary home
You wrapped your love around me like the comfort of a womb
I stayed too long in hiding just to feel your every move
I was totally consumed
But I'm leaving you
My Beautiful Cocoon
