about

Single from forthcoming album (no name as yet)
My idea for this album is to take phrases from author, Jessica Bells Poetry book Twisted Velvet Chains by Jessica Bell. Although my tracks will have nothing to do with the content of this book, it will be influenced and inspired by the words she uses.
Twisted Velvet Chains (the book) is a graphic and black depiction of a childs growth through poetry. You can get it here, but be prepared it's a veritable kick in the guts. There is also some language that could be offensive to some readers.

lyrics

Velvet Chains
Words and Music by Erika Bach (C) 2016 All Rights Reserved.

He came to lay naked with me his hand upon my belly
Body heavy
And hot like moulton stone
He burned himself inside me
He burned himself inside me
He burned himself inside me
He burned himself inside me

I don't know what I can do about it
I don't see him holding on for long
I don't know what I can do about it
I don't see him holding on for long

My fingers are twitching from your velvet skin
I pull back the sheet to let all of love in
I'm crushed
I am crushed
I'm crushed under the pressure

Chorus
Velvet chains
I will remember your name
Velvet chains
It wasn't love to blame

My arms will push under with him his head under the water
Twisted tangled and cold, cold like his own daughter
He burned himself inside me
He burned himself inside me
He burned himself inside me
He burned himself inside me

I don't know what I can do about it
I don't see him holding on for long
I don't know what I can do about it
I don't see him holding on for long

My body is hungry
Kiss your velvet skin yeah
My body is empty
With no love to get in

Chorus
