about

What I don't want, I get and what I want, I can't have.

After having a shitty couple of years, I wasn't really that inspired to make music this winter, but somehow, something came out.

released January 20, 2012

Songs written, recorded, engineered and produced by Erika Bach during December 2011 and January 2012 with Cubase 5, Edirol soundcard, Reason and Mirage sampler at Strudel Girl records Stavros Ithaca Greece.

All songs recorded at 80 bpm. The rhythm of my heart...and hopefully yours.

Track Name: Turning My Bright-Side Gray
Don’t you worry noone’s taking you to where your happiness begins
Oh now you’re sorry just to stop me talking over all these nasty things

You close your eyes and I fade out
I fade in
Where does it start
Where does it begin
It makes no sense at all
Your love is poison

You may succeed in fading all the colour out of me
Turn me into shadows
And turning my bright-side grey
Turning my bright-side grey

You close your eyes and I fade out
I fade in
Where does it start
Where does it begin
It makes no sense at all

Your Love Is Poison

You are turning my bright-side grey
You are turning my bright-side grey
You are turning my bright-side grey
You are turning my bright-side grey

Track Name: The Letter (To Jess)
It’s winter now and raining here
Yesterday, wished you were here
Was home alone and watched TV
Not much to do this time of year

I called you up

Will you ever find your way back home
Live on an island and feel so alone
Will you ever find your back home
I love you babe
I love you babe

Wish it would snow
Freeze everything
The way I feel

I fall asleep and my heart beats
Fast Fast
I called you up but couldn’t speak
The voice machine gives me the creeps

I love you babe
I love you babe

Will you ever find your way back home
Live on an island and feel so alone
Will you ever find your back home
I love you babe
I love you babe

Track Name: Betrayal and Chocolate Cake
This is the house we built
This is the life we made
This is where I fell in

Betrayal and chocolate cake
The bitter and the sweet
Betrayal and chocolate cake

Betrayal and chocolate cake
The bitter and the sweet
Betrayal and chocolate cake

We buy into fantasy that love is everything we need

Tell me what you think
Tell me how you feel
Tell me that I'm wrong

We buy into fantasy that love is everything we need
That love is everything we need
Everything we need

Bring me more red wine to drown my sorrows in
Pretty shiney things
This is where I fell in

Betrayal and chocolate cake
The bitter and the sweet
Betrayal and chocolate cake

We’re breaking up our home
I love the Beatles and you love The Rolling Stones

Track Name: Can't Take It Like You Give It
There’s snow in my garden
Deep to the knee
Some things are so much clearer to see
It’s a force of nature
Of human nature
Looked at you for the first time
Saw right to the end line

There’s nothing left to do now
Then never think of you again
I’m freeing myself from the sadness
I’m freeing myself

We’ve gone to deep to be shallow
Swimming around in this narrow stream
Of hope and ease of contention
Physical intervention
I’ll hurt you if you get too close to me

I can’t take it
I can’t love you
I can’t take it
I can’t love you

Then never think of you again
I’m freeing myself from the sadness
I’m freeing myself

I won’t be crying anymore
Now that there’s nothing for me to be crying for
I had a simple and clear revelation
Believe it when you see it the first time

I can’t take it
I can’t love you
I can’t take it
I can't take it yeah like you take it
I don't love you

Track Name: Waiting
Raised on a cliché put your shoes on and run away
Been too lost to find my way
When I close the door I’ll start today
Willow weeping at my gate
Makes me cry but I will wait
Wait for something to appear
Will it whisper in my ear

Waiting
All this I've been waiting for the light to come on
Now I wish I was blind
I was blind
Waiting
Waiting

The snow is a magnet attracted to the danger
Oh hell I wish I could let it go
Everything has changed in me
I’m not the same as I used to be
Everything has changed in me
I’m not the same as I used to be
Painting yourself in chroma key so all the bad is easy to see

Waiting
So all the bad is easy to see
Waiting
So all the bad is easy to see
Waiting
So all the bad is easy to see

Everything has changed in me
I’m not the same as I used to be

Track Name: Beautiful Heartache
My love
My love I’ll see you soon under the orange sky
My love
My love we’ll be as one

A falling star
I make a wish
And hope it will come true
There are more tears
An ocean full
I will be crying over you
Yeah Yeah

It’s a beautiful heartache
Beneath the orange sky
Love is still out there somewhere

We fall
We fall down onto earth and spread our wings to fly
We swim
We swim in razor blades
It’s all a state of mind

It’s a beautiful heartache
Beneath the orange sky
Love is still out there somewhere
It’s a beautiful heartache
Beneath the orange sky
Love is still out there somewhere
For you and I

If you need a little more than this then take another piece of my heart
It’s a beautiful heartache
Beneath the orange sky
Love is still out there somewhere

Track Name: Break-Up Day
It’s the little things you do that make me want to hate you
And it’s the little things you say that make me run away
There’s a finger digging into my back with your name on it
Do you know what you have done to me

Left your fingerprints on life’s evidence
Now when I think of us it makes no sense
I punch my fist into the air
Scream like the devil and I don’t care

It’s break-up day
This time you’re leaving
This time you’re leaving yeah
It’s break-up day

No one taught you right from wrong

No one taught you right from wrong
Good from bad
Weak from strong
Human sins demented
Just like god intended
Just like god intended
Just like god intended
Human sins demented
Just like god intended

Just like god intended

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
It’s break-up day
It’s break-up day
It’s break-up day

Track Name: Melting
Wait
Wait can’t you see he’s looking for redemption
Looking to make it right
Looking to stop the fight
Wait he’s been down on his bended knees
Hoping you’ll take him back
Hoping that you’ll forget that he took both his hands and he tore your heart out

Melting I’m melting
Bending I’m bending

He can’t negotiate through his life
Twisted and tongue tied
Take the easy ride on the road to nowhere

No
No don’t you know this is not the right way
Looking for a way out
Holding onto the doubt
No he’s been telling you sorry sorry sorry
He’s sorry
He’s sorry
It’s time for you to forget
Time to start again

Melting I’m melting
Bending I’m bending

Track Name: Twenty-five
We were almost there
The perfect love
At least that’s what I thought before you showed yourself
Happy to watch the river run
But while I jumped in you stood and put just one foot in

No substiture
Not innocent
You turned out love and made it insignificant

We came so close
It almost showed
Eventually you always turn high into low
I think I know just how this ends

Twenty-five
Twenty-five

Promises and hollow words
Remind me of reality it always hurts
I swallow it this sad regret
And hope to realize the dreams you never met
Persuasion come with another lie

Fairytales
Accidents
Respectable indifference

Twenty-five
Twenty-five
Twenty-five

Twenty-five minutes with you not leaving
Twenty-five minutes to go
There’s love damage but I’m not bleeding
Twenty-five minutes to go

Track Name: Sent You A Message
We climb over walls and only hurt ourselves when we fall
Fall onto our knees
Please Please
Come out of your shell
I sent you a message

Not a little bit sorry
It’s an angry valentine
Love is overrated
It’s just desire

It’s very important to you
Your desire
Steaming out of the cracks in the pavement
Maybe I’ll go to Canada or Alaska or somewhere cold
Cold
But not home

I sent you a message

Let go my heart
It’s time to start being me

I sent you a message

You look through curtains to find happiness
The deepest truth
Deepest truth
Yeah I’ll be ok if there is no other way
On this fire red day

Let go my heart
It’s time to start being me
The who I am
Without you shaping me

Shape me demented

It’s time to shake off these chains
Chains from these love remains
You left me empty handed

Let go my heart
It’s time to start being me
The who I am
Without you shaping me

Let go my heart
It’s time to shake off these chains

Let go my heart
Let go my heart

Track Name: Nobody's Business but Mine
The seer says
That’s what life is
Just keep moving forward
Even when you see that there’s nothing ahead

But people are dangerous
When they’re desperate and have nothing to lose
All good intentions are empty promises that we all abuse
To help us get through our lives

So if I want to raise up hell
It’s nobody’s business but mine

If it’s not a crime
To show how I really feel
So if I want to raise up hell
And I want to scream real loud
If I want to cry real hard
It’s nobody’s business but mine
