The following April, she recorded her debut album at 14, “From the Outside”,with Jacob Sciba, at Pedernales Studios, in Austin, TX. She received   2nd place (teen category) from the International Songwriting Competition for the song “In The World”, as well as Honorable Mention for the song “From the Outside”(performance category).

Lyrics

As we Grow Old

Written By: Victoria celestine

All these people trying to push an image on me
As they all ask me what it is that I am and what it is that I want to be
And I tell them I don’t know, I’m only seventeen
Give me one hundred years to figure it out and then I might see
Just who it is that I am and who it is that I want to be

Since the sun is shining gold
I’ll come out from the cold
And know I’ve been foretold
We’d love as we grow old

As I move along from experience to the next one
I won’t think back on the things that bring me down
I’m not going to fall to the ground

Since the sun is shining gold
I’ll come out from the cold
And know I’ve been foretold
We’d love as we grow old

Keep it with the flow
I come and go

Since the sun is shining gold
I’ll come out from the cold
And know I’ve been foretold
We’d love as we grow old

Keep it with the flow
I come and go

Wasted Tears

Written By: Victoria Celestine

Why don’t you just ask me a simple question?
It won’t take up all of your time to make a connection
‘Cause I’ve just about given it up
I’ve been running on an empty cup
And wasted, wasted tears

But when the lights go low it makes it so much harder
When the misery sets in and the ice gets thin it shatters
Whoa, my heart goes boom boom boom
In my room room room, lost in the doom doom doom
Whoa, and it goes boom boom boom
In my room room room, thinking of you you you

Perhaps is just another way of saying maybe
I guess you don’t think I’m worth the time you said you’d give me
I didn’t know that you would disappear
While you swept me off and left me here
Just wasting, wasting tears

But when the lights go low it makes it so much harder
When the misery sets in and the ice gets thin it shatters
Whoa, my heart goes boom boom boom
In my room room room, lost in the doom doom doom
Whoa, and it goes boom boom boom
In my room room room, thinking of you you you

Let the sound melt me away
Alone in a dark room lit by the moon
Let the sound melt me away
And the memory, the memory of you

But when the lights go low it makes it so much harder
When the misery sets in and the ice gets thin it shatters
Whoa, my heart goes boom boom boom
In my room room room, lost in the doom doom doom
Whoa, and it goes boom boom boom
In my room room room, thinking of you you you
