SoloFolkAcoustic

Brisbane singer / song writer / lyricist. Launched first album "Words That No-one Heard" June 2007.

Biography

My music is Adult Contempory, I like to write lyrics that are deep and meaningful - even abstract or cryptic.
My influences vary from Carol King to Pink Floyd - I enjoy all music genres, anything that makes me feel something.

My story..... I have been involved in acting / dancing / singing since very young. Always enjoyed writing poetry and short stories, however didn't write songs until I attempted to learn the violin 3 years ago. I changed to guitar and taught myself the chords I needed to help create the melodies for my songs. I then got together with friend and pianist Glen Muirhead who arranged the album "Words That No-One Heard" which I launched in Brisbane June 2007.

This year I have begun singing professionally with Brisbane band Hiway1.

Lyrics

Clear The Way

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

Clear The Way


Clear the way before you get the door
Don't think I've ever walked this room before
Better breathe before I look around
Close my eyes so I can hear the sound

Wake up to the noise I can't ignore
Find out what the day has for me in store
Better breathe before I leave the room
Close my eyes so I can see you soon

Right in my mind
Never left the thought behind
Be by my side
You know you've always got a smile, with me

Clear the way before you change your mind
If you think you'll ever leave this all behind
Remember me when ever troubles near
Close my eyes so you can see me here

Right in my mind
Never left the thought behind
Be by my side
You know you've always got a ride

Right in my mind
Couldn't leave you if I tried
There's no place to run and hide
You'll always have a place inside, of me

Right in my mind
Never left the thought behind
Be strong by my side
You know you've always got a smile, with me



CLEAR THE WAY

The Shadow

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

The Shadow

All that gathers must be
Part of everything we're meant to be
Align the symbols that will lead.
Ensure the line is straight
Open the largest gate
I will wait for you
With arms like childhood dreams.

When the thought will slip away
Paths we'll walk along some day
Join the dots along the way.
And make sure everything
Brings light and truth within
I will wait for you
With arms like childhood dreams.

But I, didn't know that if it rained sometimes
Around I'd find, a new beginning.
So I, got to know that to see to learn
Is safe to yearn, a life fulfilled with
Childhood dreams are who we are.

I'm sorry if I never told you
All the secrets I once knew
You had to know I never meant to.
Cause life is there to live
What I could never give
I still wait for you
With arms like childhood dreams.

Yes I, admit I've made mistakes before
Lying on the floor, my soul completely
So I, should know if I ask once again
My greatest friend, for your compassion
Childhood dreams seem long ago.

And when you look behind the shadow
The light that shines will be the truth.

And when you look behind the shadow
The light that shines will be the truth.

Foolish Game

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

Foolish Game


Too late for me to care
Wondering why you're standing there
Couldn't be more sure
The man I once adored

Cause it's not a foolish game
To see you're still the same
Cry another bath full
And add another cap full
Cause it's not a foolish game

I know you tried to be there
Convinced that I would still care
Couldn't be more sure
I've told you this before

Cause it's not a foolish game
To see if you have changed
All the lies are spoken
And all the ties are broken
Cause it's not a foolish game
Still not a foolish game

Doesn't matter what I say
I really tried but you refuse, to be the man
You promised me

Cause it's not a foolish game
Don't care if you have changed
Like throwing lucky dice to
Take a chance without you
Cause it's not a foolish game
Still not a foolish game

It's not a foolish game

FOOLISH GAME

People

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

People

People, never know for certain
Searching for the curtain
Which we hide behind
Lately I, push aside the warning
Hope someone is calling
Calling out your name

Oh there's never any way
To live by what we say
The echo in my mind won't help me
Once I find so much adversity
The answers plain to see
People pretend to be
Don't you want to find the key with me?

Everyday comes round again
No matter what we think of now and then

There are people, people smiling
People, people fighting
People, looking for the way
There are people, people crying
People, never trying
People, going all the way

Be what it may
I don't know what to say
Yesterday is lesson learnt
But won't help all the pain and hurt
The answers plain to see
People pretend to be
Don't you want to find some inner key?

Everyday comes round, round again
No matter what we think of now and then

There are people, people striving
People, some relying
People, putting out the word
There are people, calculating
There are people, resonating
There are people, running round the world

Someday, this will all be worthless
Another soul will guide us, and dreams will all suffice

Regret

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

Regret

And when I look at you I remember
When I'm not next to you I forget
It seems so long ago you consumed me
And all you left me with was regret

Regret
Regret

And when I think of you it's madness
Yet when I turn around I'm free
It was so long ago I've lost that, part of me
But your memory still haunts me

Regret
Regret

It's all been done
It's all been said
Monster unleashed out of my head
Devil in my mind
Drinks from my heart
Tells me what he sees in spite of me

So I will have to end the hard way
Don't think I won't, you know I will
Remember it was you who made me
And all that's left is a hole to fill

REGRET

Words That No-one Heard

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

Words That No-One Heard

Give me back some of that generosity
Lend me a handful so I'll surely be
I'll never let you down, I'll never ever let you down
It's quite a lot to give, but giving is the only way to live

You should have been there
Should've been there when we said the words
No-one heard us say
I remember, the rain came down
But we just smiled, nothing left to say

Take away all of my uncertainty
Lend me your heart so I can see what you see
You'll always be the one, you'll always be the only one
You're always by my side,
You're with me when I want to run and hide

You should have been there
Should've been there when we said the words
No-one heard us say
I remember, the rain came down
But we just smiled, nothing left to say

You should have been there
When the massive green had left the scene
Floated through the sky
I remember, how we turned our heads
We laughed and said, words that no-one heard

WORDS THAT NO-ONE HEARD

Dream

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

Dream

Take me to a temple
No-one has seen before
Whisper soft and gentle
We move across the floor

We'll kneel and pray to those who hear us
And sacrifice our souls
We'll listen to them judge us
And drink from sacred bowls

Oh listen can you hear us
Hear us cry your name
So many men have died before you
Too many died in vain

Take me to a garden
I once knew long ago
The trees are tall and peaceful
Paths I used to know

Sit and feel the silence
Where life is far away
Why did we ever leave here?
Why can't we always stay?

Oh listen can you hear us
Hear us cry your name
So many men have died before you
Too many died in vain

Oh listen can you hear it
Peaceful solitude
Too busy too remember
A place to be renewed

Take me to an island
Maybe another day....

Resistance

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

Resistance

I'll follow you
I'll even let you lead
I'll be the one
Beside you when you need
And it doesn't make a difference
When you act with such resistance
I'll follow you

Turn off the light
Close the door before you leave
Don't you know I'm here to hold you
If only you would see
But you don't want my assistance
Cause you're so full of resistance, yeah

Remember when we first held hands
And laughed about our future plans
When, life was so easy
So now we hop and skip and jump
And look out for another bump
There's, going to be so many more
Along the way

When tomorrow comes
And memory fades away
Stay true to me
I know you anyway
And I know we'll make a difference
Without all our resistance, yeah

Remember when we first held hands
And laughed about our future plans
When, life was so easy
So now we hop and skip and jump
And look out for another bump
There's, going to be so many more
Along the way

Well, remember when you promised me
Greatness for eternity
Well, did you ever stop to think
Human's all we'll ever know
You've got to let the bad times go
There's, going to be so many more
Along the way

If you ever leave, I'll always think and smile
Of the life we had, a life full for a while
A life full for a while

A Million Years

Written By: Vanessa Lee Frost

A Million Years

So glad to see you
Although it's been a million years
So glad to show you
Love will outshine all the tears

And I know
It takes time to mend
But I know
We'll be back again

So glad to hold you
Just like you felt in all my dreams
So glad to know you
Figure out just what life means

And I know
It takes time to clear
But I know
The past will disappear

Just when I thought a million years
Had passed me by
And everything that used to be
Let's never say goodbye

So glad to be with you
You make me want to sing out loud
So glad to need you
You know I try to make you proud

And I know
It takes time to heal
But I know
This time we'll make it real

Just when I thought a million years
Had passed me by
And everything that life can bring
Is here for you and I

So glad to see you, so glad to show you, so glad to hold you
So glad, so glad, to love you

A MILLION YEARS
