Biography

Sienna Rain consist of London based songwriting partnership fronted by vocalist Karen Grace. Although both writers have previous writing backgrounds, they have only been writing together for approximately one year. However, they have quickly developed an excellent working rapport and musical direction, writing strong melodic commercial songs with two aims. The first is to sell the songs to other artists and the second is to develop a strong set of songs best suited for vocalist Karen Grace to showcase.

Karen has accumulated a large collection of several albums worth of unpublished music. The styles range from Acoustic pop/Soul/Pop Rock/Power Ballad / Esoteric pop/Cinematic music/ Relaxation/ Experimental soundscapes with 'The Colour Project'.

Writing influences range from Seal, Alanis Morrissette to Kate Bush and KD Lang, and almost any commercial song in any genre that has good melody and feeling. Both writers are idealists who love a great belting positive song. On the other hand, Karen has an esoteric side and likes to explore the Tori Amos/Kate Bush area.

Lyrics

Stay For A While

Written By: Karen Grace

Caught in the eye of a storm
Its howling outside
And with your beating breath
You bring me back to life

Stay for a while, won't you please
Stay for a while
Stay for a while, won't you please
Stay a while longer
Close your eyes, and take me there
To the place where we belong
Close your eyes, don't you know
You're doing it, ah ah your're doing it for me....

Fragile like a newborn flower
Bending in the breeze
You fall on me like summer rain
Wash away my fears

Stay for a while, won't you please
Stay for a while
Stay for a while, won't you please
Stay a while longer
Close your eyes, and take me there
To the place where we belong
Close your eyes, don't you know
You're doing it, ah ah you're doing it for me....

Close your eyes and sleep
Close your eyes and sleep
Close your eyes and sleep

Stay for a while, won't you please
Stay for a while
Stay for a while, won't you please
Stay a while longer
Close your eyes, and take me there
To the place where we belong
Close your eyes, don't you know
You're doing it for me,
Close your eyes, and take me there
To the place where we belong
Close your eyes, don't you know
You're doing it, ah ah you're doing it for me....

Train

Written By: Karen Grace

TRAIN

Taking one step at a time I find myself at the edge of somewhere
Down this road of fate
Chasing dreams and holding beliefs that I am no longer sure of…
How long do I wait?

But there is only one thing for me to do
Live my life the best I can
And there is only one thing for me to do
Let it go and ride this train

Here I go I’m getting on the merry go round
“Would you like the Palomino or the Gray?”
I’ll take the one that moves with the spirit to get me through to the end
And jump over every gate

And there is only one thing for me to do
Live my life the best I can
And there is only one thing for me to do
Let it go and ride this train

Go on, go on, go on, go on
Don’t hide, don’t hide it, don’t hide, don’t hide it
Say what you want, say what you feel
Don’t fight, don’t fight it, don’t fight, don’t fight it

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah

And there is only one thing for me to do
Live my life the best I can
And there is only one thing for me to do
Let it go and ride this train

I wise old friend once said to me in a very stern voice
"Karen, you just got to learn to let it go"
And life is just a mystery one well never know all the answers to
But ain’t that just the glory of living?

And there is only one thing for me to do
Live my life the best I can
And there is only one thing for me to do
Let it go and ride this train

Go on, go on, go on, go on
Don’t hide, don’t hide it, don’t hide, don’t hide it
Say what you want, say what you feel
Don’t fight, don’t fight it, don’t fight, don’t fight it

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah

I'm On Your Side

Written By: Karen Grace

I’M ON YOUR SIDE

I’m on your side, I’m on your side
Even if it means lying, even if it means dying,
I’m on your side, cause you have shown me love.

And the stars may be crying,
And the world of love may be dying,
And the butterflies may not be flying,
But I, still, still believe in you.

I’m on your side, I’m on your side,
Cause you have shown me love

Solo

I’m on your side, I’m on your side, I’m on your side
Cause you have shown me love.

And if I see anger in your eyes,
Maybe it’s just love in disguise
Maybe it’s just the way the dove flies
But I, still, still believe in you

I’m on your side, I’m on your side
Even if it means lying, even if it means dying,
I’m on your side, I’m on your side, I’m on your side
Cause you have shown me love…
