about

“Nightdreamer” is a three track EP that I wrote about being an introvert with the desperation to become the opposite. My first true foray into electronic music production, the songs deal with themes of loneliness and isolation. Nights in and nights out as a misfit.

Track Name: Friday Night
Drinking coffee getting high on my dreams
Spinning records round
Putting make-up on then falling asleep
Cause i'm feeling down
But no one wants to speak on a Friday night
They're far too busy going out and living their life
I want to be your girl but you don't like me, why?
I need all the friends I can get

Would someone tell me why things have to move on?
And now everyone has changed, while I seem to be the same
I'm trying to get by the way I know how
But I don't know what to do
Cause I can't get through to you
I'm getting restless

Nobody in this whole wide world stays in on nights like this but me
I'm young and bored still wanna be yours
But you don't want to know, oh!

More than anything I want to be free
Like a bird in the sky
But i'm scared that maybe one day i'll see
That freedom is a lie

There's no one in a single bed on Friday nights
No one listens to Spotify then turns out the lights
I want to be his girl but he don't like me, why?
I need all the friends I can get

Would someone tell me why things have to move on?
And now everyone has changed, while I seem to be the same
I'm trying to get by the way I know how
But I don't know what to do
Cause I can't get through to you
I'm getting restless

Nobody in this whole wide world stays in on nights like this but me
I'm young and bored still wanna be yours
But you don't want to know, oh!

Baby baby baby baby
You gonna text me while your girlfriend's waiting?
I know she don't appreciate me
So it's a fantasy i'm living in

All you say, all you say tells me she's no good
But there's nothing I can do
And I would like, I would like to talk to you
But that's just life!

Cause no one wants to speak on a Friday night
They're far too busy going out and living their life
I want to be his girl but he don't like me, why?
I need all the friends I can get

Would someone tell me why things have to move on?
And now everyone has changed, while I seem to be the same
I'm trying to get by the way I know how
But I don't know what to do
Cause I can't get through to you
I'm getting restless

Nobody in this whole wide world stays in on nights like this but me
I'm young and bored still wanna be yours
But you don't want to know, oh!
Track Name: Shy
She's so shy, she lives inside her head
But they all wanna take her to bed
Or somewhere else instead
Silence is the only thing that they get
Older guys, have kinda more appeal
She dreams of how they could make her feel
But dreams are never real
They keep on spinning like a never ending wheel

There's a reason why you cannot jump and touch the sky
(If you act like her brother)
There's a reason why some people just don't talk
(She will act like your queen)
There's a reason why the movie stars in life exist
(If you go with another)
There's a reason why we act the way we do
(She'll wonder what might have been)

I'll get hooked
I know I can
And if you don't believe me, watch me
And just make it slow
Like what's in my head
Cause I think that would be quite cool

You're falling too slowly
You need to step into the light
He's gone and you're lonely
But that doesn't make it right

Stop being so blue
Don't need a man to hold you
Or show you the way
I've told you
This is old news
Now make your life a work of art

Make it nice, make it worth her while
Or you'll see the way she leaves in style
Take it all into your stride
Be the one who shows her be the guide
Staying quiet, is a grateful rest
From the madness and it gets her fresh
But now she wants a guest
Come round to mend it come and clear your mess

There's a reason why you cannot jump and touch the sky
(If you act like her brother)
There's a reason why some people just don't talk
(She will act like your queen)
There's a reason why the movie stars in life exist
(If you go with another)
There's a reason why we act the way we do
(She'll wonder what might have been)

I'll get hooked
I know I can
And if you don't believe me, watch me
And just make it slow
Like what's in my head
Cause I think that would be quite cool

You're falling too slowly
You need to step into the light
He's gone and you're lonely
But that doesn't make it right

Stop being so blue
Don't need a man to hold you
Or show you the way
I've told you
This is old news
Now make your life a work of art

You're falling too slowly
You need to step into the light
He's gone and you're lonely
But that doesn't make it right (repeat til fade)
Track Name: Home
Get out the car
Pass all the people in the street
That man is high
That girl is puking on her feet
Into the bar
Nowhere to sit and too much noise
I want more friends
And lots of very pretty boys

Looking in my direction
Everyone wants to get some
Then I feel like I can't breathe
Like I can't do this, like I wanna leave

Can I go home?
And be alone?
I don't fit in
To this scene that everybody else hangs out in
I've tried it out
Walked on that ground
But it's not me
And now it's not what I want to be

(I'm over it x4)

Have some more air
And then i'm sure i'll be okay
We're being normal
Some people do this everyday
Go back inside
Queue to the bar is far too long
I hear the ground shake
As they play some dance song

No one cares that i've left them
Quitting is my profession
So I just try to breathe and
Try to figure out how i'm gonna leave

Can I go home?
And be alone?
I don't fit in
To this scene that everybody else hangs out in
I've tried it out
Walked on that ground
But it's not me
And now it's not what I want to be

(i'm over it x4)

Can I go home?
And be alone?
I don't fit in
To this scene that everybody else hangs out in
I've tried it out
Walked on that ground
But it's not me
And now it's not what I want to be
