Biography

Tulla's Headspace was founded by Laurie Alberts. She took the name Tulla from a character she created in a mass multi online role playing game (mmorpg). Coincidentally, it's also the name of a town in Irland. But the "headspace" is all Laurie's.

Armed with a somewhat eclectic collection of original songs, Laurie teamed up with producer D.M. Gremlin at D.M. Gremlin Productions in Long Beach, CA and recorded the self-titled debut album, Tulla's Headspace.

The album features heavy guitars, grinding rythems and powerful, melodic vocals in such songs as "Left", "So it shall Be" and "Picking a Flower", contagious lyrics in "My Life, My Place", "My Star" and "The Overwhelming", topped off with an acoustic version of "My Life, My Place" and the hauntingly emotional song "Fire"

Lyrics

Left

Written By: Laurie Alberts

You might say I'm alittle deranged
I'll admitt to being a bit strange
in my head, in my head,
In my head, like I said!

Chorus
Just west of average
Set apart from the rest
I'm just, I'm just,
I'm just off
(Just off to the left)
I'm just off
(Just off to the left)

I might see things
A little more clearly
I'm not bound by the things you hold dearly
I can see, I can see
I can see, I am free!

Chorus 2x

I can see (I am free)
I can see
I'm just off (3x)

My Star

Written By: Laurie Alberts

I see you breath you, you're my star.
Can't seem the reach the place where you are.
Would you come to me in the days last light.
You'd feel so good with me here tonight....tonight.

Chorus:
If I wake up from dreaming, lay down on me and take
Me away.
And if I wake up screaming lay your hands on me and say,
It's ok, it's ok....
It's ok, it's ok....

Don't see me, need me, your far from home.
What's on your mind when you're all alone?
Would you embrace me until the light of dawn,
Then dissappear when the time we have is gone?
All gone.....

(chorus)

(chorus 2x)

My Life, My Place (acoustic)

Written By: Laurie Alberts

You're so secure in your
Precious comfort zone.
You don't even notice that
I'm dieing here alone.
Then you come in here and
Try to take away my song
'Cause it's not what you wanted to hear.
You don't know you've rejected me,
'Cause you just can't see....

Chorus:

This is my life
This is my place
This is my love thrown back in my face
I gave you my heart, but you can't reach me here.
You don't realize in love there's no fear.

You said you'd rather be happy than right.
You said you'd rather be on your knees.
But you still try to fix my life.
Don't you know you're the last
Person in the world who can save me.
And did you really think that
This would just go on and on and on without changing
On single thing
I bet you really wish that I am just as stupid
As you always thought I was. And...

(Chorus)

Take a good look at my life
Take a good look at my face
4x

(Chorus 2x)

Take a good look at my life
Take a good look at my face
Tell me what you think you know.

Tell me what you know.....tell me what you know!
I didn't think so! I didnt think so!
2x
You don't know a damn thing!

Won't be Denied

Written By: Laurie Alberts

Now you see me, I'm coming into full bloom.
And as for resentment, and condemnation,
I have no more room.
It's time for some recovery, some self discovery.
No more shall I drink from the well of self-pity
And it's about time.

Chorus:

Here am I standing toe to toe with me.
This is my time, so just step aside.
I've worked too damn long and hard to get here.
And I won't be denied!

I've watched as some in anger shake their fists at the heavens.
While others fall to their knees begging mercy! Mercy!
And I wonder what will become of them,
And what will become of me as I tip the scale
Seeking some sort of balance.
All I can do is carry on.

(chorus)

And I wonder what will become of them,
And what will become of me as I tip the scale
Seeking some sort of balance.
All I can do is carry on.

(chorus)

Here am I standing standing toe to toe with me.
Here am I standing for the world to see.
I have bled, I have cried, I've been on my knees.
And I won't be denied!
Here am I, here am I standing!
Here am I, here am I standing!
Here am I, here am I standing!
And I won't be denied!

Fire

Written By: Laurie Alberts

No doors, no keys today, just walls
But if I close my eyes and try I can see
A window
Didn't speak to me today, just silence
But if I close my eyes and try I can hear
An echo

Now I plunge reckless into the fire, let it burn.
Now I plunge reckless into the fire, let it burn.
Let it burn, let it burn,
Until I learn, until I learn
Maybe someday I'll learn

It's raining and it's quiet after the storm
If only I could sit still long enough
You could lead me,
Won't You lead me, lead me
Out of the fire
Won't You lead me, lead me
Out of the fire
Won't You lead me, lead me
Out of the fire

Into the fire let it burn
Yes I plunge reckless into the fire, let it burn.
Yes I plunge reckless into the fire, let it burn.
Let it burn , let it burn
Until I learn, until I learn
Oh Some day I'll learn, oh
Maybe someday I will learn to sit still
Long enough for You to lead me,
Won't You lead me, lead me
Out of the fire
Won't You lead me lead me
Out of the fire
Won't You lead me lead me

Maybe someday I would learn to sit still long enough
For You to lead me, for You to lead me.
(repeat)
Won't You lead
(repeat)
Maybe someday
(repeat)
