Numb 03:50
NUMB Took a car across the world to see if I could make it Something's in my brain that I can't shake, don't want to fake it Semblance of an innocence, I can't seem to forsake it Practicalities undone, I just can't take it I want it to be true Keep a'thinking about this trip that I could be taking Someone's thinking what have I been doing lately Was a time when I could open up all to you But that was then and now I am all unglued But there is no way back Temptation was a trap I'm making a change for you Too bad it's what you need What you want You could have it all Too bad it's what you need What you want You could have it all If I could borrow some sugar Help me the taste is so bitter Took a lot of feeling cause I don't want to be pretending Heart is running empty, carefull of this I'm sending And all those opened doors ignored, walked past, to get to you Salty memories pour out like glitter glue But there is no way back Temptation was a trap I'm making a change for you Too bad it's what you need What you want You could have it all Too bad it's what you need What you want You could have it all If I could borrow some sugar Help me the taste is so bitter Help me please cause I can't see past the tragedy Help me see if this is who I want to be Help me know if I can do what you do I can do what you do and I'll see see see you later and I'll Cc see you later But there is no way back Temptation was a trap I'm making a change for you Too bad it's what you need What you want You could have it all Too bad it's what you need What you want You could have it all If I could borrow some sugar Help me the taste is so bitter Help me please cause I can't see what's in front of me Help me see if this is who I want to be Help me know if I can do what you do I concede what what you do and I'll see see see you later and I'll Cc see you later and I'll see, see See you later

DON'T MAKE ME Don't make me say it When I'm falling down Don't make me pray when you're not around Don't make me try Cause I choose it more Don't me make trade you Don't lead me on Tonight fires are burning and I knew I had to be going As I tried Tried to find land to settle on Take more, give more back, open the key to sing it But I knew I would keep this faith unaccounted The decisions you make so you can crawl back home And everywhere I heard the sound of the alarm Tonight fires are burning and I knew I had to be going As I tried Tried to find land to settle on Try for land Try for land My shoes are in the corner cause you're vibing me Well you spit out your tongue and we come undone We lose all meaning Suspicious eyes We don't even see them With all the vials of dust and they say Call you back in the morning Tonight fires are burning and I knew I had to be going As I tried, tried to find land to settle on Try for land Try for land Go along little girl You don't know nothing about this world You think you know the be all But you're not afraid of me I could show you baby That it's a fool's journey your on And if I gave you reason to believe Now go run along go run along

Midnight 03:08
Midnight Well it was midnight Out of a storybook Still you had to get me home That gleam, that perfect photograph But I didn't know What did you say to me That I should just take your advice And throw my arms around you Do your scene and believe your lies But it's a long way that you go Long way that you go To disguise yourself Long way that you go But it's easy to see You believe me a fool The intermission of the movie Stars were milling all about That dream of giving your autograph The screams and shouts What did you say to me That I should just take your advice And throw my arms around you Do your scene and believe your lies Cause it's a long way that you go Long way that you go To disguise yourself Long way that you go And it's easy to see You believe me a fool Now in the distance I see it clearly You were a thief in my home That gleam, that perfect photograph But now I know Long way that you go Long way that you go To find yourself Long way that you go But in light of this affair I'll be letting you go Long way to go Long way that you go To find yourself Long way to go But in light of this affair I'll be letting you go

Fie 03:52
Fie Where are your mother's wise lies? Where are the hopes that you have now? What is that disguise? Where are those old bones you bury well? Life can be so complicated you need a comb Your psychic won't pick up the phone Dance to the ether sounds, our feet are spinning round Fie fie fie fie Cause at least I've found an amulet round Fie fie fie Why can't you see the sunlight Waiting in your time of need Oh I can't pretend the clouds have no end It means I found it. It means I found it. Oh in these mists of sound Listen to what I've found Fie fie fie fie Cause at least we've found Our hearts are spinning round Fie fie fie Why can't you see the sunlight Waiting in your time of need Oh I can't pretend the clouds have no end It means I found it. It means I found it. ohhh Why can't you see the sunlight Waiting in your time of need Oh I can't pretend the clouds have no end It means I found it. It means I found it. Why can't you see the sunlight Waiting in your time of need Oh I can't pretend the clouds have no end It means I found it. It means I found it.

Crows 03:25
CROWS When the morn draws orange blue leathered skies and the lightning sparkles in your eyes And all their coal like feathers flutter so they don't miss a beat Do you sink into your next nightmare? Or cover up so you can find hope In the dark or in the daily clutter Still you're going to be found but can you deliver? We can't pretend that we're not frightened We can't pretend that we're not frightened We can't pretend that we're not frightened What you mean to me is a mystery just go ahead and light that fire where are we going? Are we dreaming in colour? Are we heading to town? Am I just a bit actor playing the part as you let me drown? Drops of rain that go pitter patter Bury all the bones Bury all the bones Ever wonder if it will matter? To feel your heart with the distant thunder Bury all the bones I got my reasons to believe that you've been crying you know something it's been a long time All those wings flap to bewilder you can see them all flying home you can see them all flying home We can't pretend that we're not frightened We can't pretend that we're not frightened We can't pretend that we're not frightened What you mean to me is a mystery just go ahead and light that fire where are we going? oooooh

TALK ABOUT LIES I want to talk about lies That I didn't know then Situation is crazy And I can't pretend Cause I feel this shame But who's to blame And I don't know And I feel this shame But who's to blame And I don't know Cause I feel your thoughts and I must confess I'm feeling lost with your regrets The intuition that you listen to, just a little when you need And the loneliness doesn't take a break Just looks to us to seal our fate In a paradise that's so long overdue I want to talk about days Well you know I came to You're so crazy And I am too Cause I feel this shame But who's to blame And I don't know Cause I feel this shame But who's to blame And I don't know And I feel this shame But who's to blame And I don't know Cause I feel your thoughts and I must confess I'm feeling lost with your regrets The intuition that you listen to, just a little when you need And the loneliness doesn't take a break Just looks to us to seal our fate In a paradise that's so long overdue I sat in fire till I was bone He suddenly thinks a lesson ago So with silence found No sense in kidding me? When will you hold me? Cause I feel your thoughts and I must confess I'm feeling lost with your regrets The intuition that you listen to, just a little when you need And the loneliness doesn't take a break Just looks to us to seal our fate In a paradise that's so long overdue

Try 04:02
TRY Darling I wonder where you've gone I watered green the yellow lawn What a picture, evokes a scene A lemon dusted magazine You can get it if you try No one's going to hand it to you You can get it if you try No one's going to hand it to you Darling we've scraped the edge of time Swallowed it whole in our rhyme Who will understand unless they've felt The bittersweet beat, the heart melt. You can get it if you try No one's going to hand it to you You can get it if you try No one's going to hand it to you You could fall down to your feet but You gotta meant it You gotta meant it You gotta meant it You gotta meant it You could beg and you could plead but You gotta show it You gotta show it You gotta show it You gotta show it And Would you give me your heart please Would you give me your heart please Would you give me your heart please Would you give me your heart please Hey now Hey now Here now , here now, here now, here now, here now Hey hey Would you give me your heart please...

about

Civil Wray Toronto, Ontario

After touring nationally and internationally including Germany, Turkey, Australia and the U.S. as blueVenus, Andrea decided it was time for a new approach. Collaborating with producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Holly Mcnarland, Jill Barber) Civil Wray offers an indie rock vibe, a twinge of country, and an infusion of Latin pop and soul that elevates her trademark smoky vocals. ... more
