about

Dear Listener…

It’s such an honour to have you on this musical journey with me.

Some of these songs are my most personal musical exploration to date. Maybe this is the most personal I will ever get - I’m not sure. But what I can say is, making these songs did something to me. It’s hard to explain but somehow they changed me. I guess in some way it was a lifelong goal of mine to create music in this way and more than any other thing I have done I feel like a different person after making it. I don’t really know what that’s about and I guess it’s not my job to question it. But needless to say I’m so grateful for you, for your love and support over the years, til I finally had enough of whatever that stuff is called - courage, gumption, creative insanity - to see this through.

The songs are all quite different in a way but I hope they pull you in. I hope they speak to you and take you somewhere.

If life has taught me anything to this point it really is this - Whatever your dream is - do it. Just decide and do it. It might not make sense to anyone but you - it might feel impossible but I promise you - once you commit, amazing things will rally to your aid. Lean into it. Start small and let it grow. Trust in the making. It will make sense in the end. And as my mum says… if it doesn't make sense… it’s not yet the end ;-)

Love and gratitude always

Fiora

Track Name: Devil That You Know (feat. Savannah Jo Lack)
DEVIL THAT YOU KNOW (feat. Savannah Lack)

Pin your courage to the wall
Sure enough to feed the ways til your invention
As the weary start to fall
I could always feel the things you couldn’t mention

Start believing, this is the answer
You’ve been wondering

Til you’re running around in circles trying to make it all make sense
Rose coloured lens, see it again
But the shadow of your reflection’s got you running scared

In the end
That’s the Devil that you know
But he’ll never let you go
Til you make it on your own

Premonition of a world
One by one moving a step to bridge the distance
and the voices that you heard
Gather up despite a beating heart’s resistance

Now you’re looking at all the faces,
Trying to make it all make sense
Rose coloured lens, see it again
But the shadow of your reflection’s hung you from the neck

In the end
That’s the Devil that you know
But he’ll never let you go
Til you make it on your own
That’s the Devil that you know
That’s the Devil that you know
But he’ll never let you go
Til you make it on your own
That’s the Devil that you know
Track Name: Tornado
TORNADO

I feel it swarming, warm like your whisper, circling round my head
Worlds speeding up as our feet hit the dust can't outrun what we can't forget
Fear takes a grip on me
Can't wait and see coz we got nowhere to hide, we got nowhere to hide
Mortality will hit me right between the eyes
Coz we're so out of control - you say you won't let me go
But I can hear it on the air now, with the taste of my surrender and I can't seem to change my fate

And I can feel it, like thunder, and with the full force pulling me under to take me away, to take me away
Tornado
Tornado 
Tornado

Tornado
Tornado 
Tornado

Blood rushing silence, push me to shove as the certainty takes effect
Face the horizon that's burning my eyes with all the pieces that we have left
And my complacency - empower me coz it's too late for the fall, here at the end of it all
I face the fear that fills me to show me my regret, and now as all things take hold you say you won't let me go

But I can hear it, on the air now with the taste of my surrender and I can't seem to change my fate
And I can feel it, like thunder, and with the full force, pulling me under to take me away, to take me away

To crush the air from my lungs,
To crush the air from my lungs
To crush the air from my lungs.

To crush the air from my lungs,
To crush the air from my lungs
To crush the air from my lungs.
Track Name: Heartbeat Loud
HEARTBEAT LOUD (STEREO SOUND)

You should know it, you know what, you got me
So serious, you don't need now to hit the ground runnin'
Slow up, you're not made for this heat
I don't mind, maybe you decide we'll roll with it as it comes
Unravel the mystery, so plain to me coz nothin ever skipped my beat like it does
I'm done with this history repeat, just skip to my beat, you fit and then I hear your

Heartbeat Loud
Heart beating so Loud - like your stereo
Heart beat - are you ready to breathe this deeper
Heart beat - two pieces found, you make me a stereo sound

Take a look closer, come up to my speed
Predestiny creepin' now to tap on this shoulder
With no cover from storms in my sea
I begin with a calmer wind to carry this over and
Fold up in the meant to be, surrender me
I'll beat to your frequency like a drum
All under the waves of this heat, you fit to my deepest parts, and when I hear your

Heartbeat Loud
Heart beating so Loud - like your stereo
Heart beat - are you ready to breathe this deeper
Heart beat - two pieces found, you make me a stereo sound
Track Name: Extraordinary
EXTRAORDINARY

Took a ride and it’s rainin’ here again
Slow motion fade to sunlight
Lookin out as the pieces start to fit
But I’m lost in the thoughts that keep me warm at night
It’s that Extraordinary way about you

I’m seeing straight but my eyes still openin’
All haze and the lazy poet,
So unfade me to wrap me round again
Taste test me to clean your palate well
In that Extraordinary way about you
It’s that Extraordinary way about you
It’s that Extraordinary way about you

Slow rain as you whisper to me
Your name like a shiver ‘cross my skin
I’m high on the bliss you threw me
Washed in all the quivering descent
Slow rain as you whisper to me
Your name like a shiver cross my skin
I’m high on the bliss you threw me
In that Extraordinary way about you
In that Extraordinary way about you
In that Extraordinary way about you
In that Extraordinary way about you

They say you shook as the smile crept on your face
All hell breakin’ loose in beauty
Until the sea set the sunlight off again
I’d feel the whole horizon through me
With summer breeze and the lull before the breath
My heartbeat skips and falls into
The day I could tell you knew me
In that Extraordinary way about you
That Extraordinary way about you

Slow rain as you whisper to me
Your name like a shiver ‘cross my skin
I’m high on the bliss you threw me
Washed in all the quivering descent
Smile back and I’m goin’ under
Milk spills and I feel it pull me in
Swept up like the rollin’ thunder
And that Extraordinary way about you
That Extraordinary way about you

I took a ride and it’s rainin’ here again
Slow fade to a sea of sunlight
I’m Lookin out as the pieces start to fit
I’m lost in the thoughts that keep me warm at night
In that Extraordinary way about you

I’m seeing straight but my eyes still openin’
All haze and the lazy poet,
So unfade me to wrap me round again
Taste test me to clean your palate well
In that Extraordinary way about you

Slow rain as you whisper to me
Your name like a shiver ‘cross my skin
I’m high on the bliss you threw me
Washed in all the quivering descent
Smile back and I’m goin’ under
Milk spills and I feel it pull me in
Swept up like the rollin’ thunder
And that Extraordinary way about you

It’s that Extraordinary way about you
It’s that Extraordinary way about you
About you, About you,
Track Name: Night in My Dreams
NIGHT IN MY DREAMS

Night surrender, come be my friend,
Spin the world around to meet the sun again
You lie awake and stare up at the wall, 
and you wonder why your body won't fall, 
but lucid you'll find me - and I'm here ready for the flight

Those bloodshot eyes from lying awake 
all these sleepless nights that you can't explain
Coz you stole me away to find a billion places, 
All in my mind, 
you spent the night in my dreams... 

Heavy-lidded I let you in,
Breathing all the states of you in shedding skin,
For constellations ending our divide, 
Or a supernova to bend space and time
and I'm always ready for the ride

Those bloodshot eyes from lying awake 
all these sleepless nights that you can't explain
Coz you stole me away to find a billion places, 
Freeze me in time, 
you spent the night in my dreams... 

Though your eyes are heavy this won't be like anything you've known, 

Those bloodshot eyes from lying awake 
all these sleepless nights that you can't explain
Coz you stole me away to find a billion places, 
Freeze me in time, 
you spent the night in my dreams... 
Track Name: Ultra Violet Love
ULTRA VIOLET LOVE


We burn burn burn like roman candles,
glow-oh oh oh oh-ing in the dark
you light me up and i can barely handle,
these thoughts of you my Ultra Violet Love



For obvious displays of my affection
Each mirror turns to you to call my bluff
But how I come alive in your reflection
I’m all for you my Ultra Violet Love


and everybody wants a love, someone they can hold..
hold out for the human touch,never letting go
and everybody wants a love, someone they can hold..
hold out for the human touch, never letting go


this madness my incendiary companion,
you spark it like a match and burn so bright
and all the world is grey by your comparison
and i'm alone, lost in endless night…


and everybody wants a love, someone they can hold..
hold out for the human touch, never letting go
and everybody wants a love, someone they can hold..
hold out for the human touch, never letting go

My Ultra Violet Love, love, love
My Ultra Violet Love, love, love
and everybody wants a love, someone they can hold..
hold out for the human touch, never letting go
Track Name: Pockets
POCKETS

Don’t you wish you could have known,
Guess it’s funny how it gets you sometimes
Travel in the come and go,
With the shadows whispering fast behind
To feed you to your gods
So you fill that empty cup you carry
with all the things you should have known,
but let it go

You only reap what you sow,
So love the way that you know
And line your pockets with gold
Pockets with gold
Though loves a pleasure to hold
Some things are better let go
So line your pockets with gold
Pockets with gold

I can see how far it goes
When you lose yourself you bleed into me
So teach me how to breathe below
In the dark you left your laugh behind
To fall in furrowed sense
When you’re all at peace and still like diamonds
Gathering your magic slow
So let it go

You only reap what you sow,
So love the way that you know
And line your pockets with gold
Pockets with gold
For love’s a pleasure to hold
So lose the critic in tow
And line your pockets with gold
Pockets with gold
Track Name: Human Race
HUMAN RACE

Running in the human race, I fear I can't run fast
Running in the human race, I fear I might run last
I can feel the humans, running past
In the human race
In the human race


Running in the human race, I fall behind
Running in the human race, I get brushed aside
I can feel the humans, and all their pride
In the human race
In the human race

Ahhhh ahhhh
ahhhhhhh

Running in the human race, for such a funny prize
Running in the human race, Everybody dies
I can feel the humans flying by, flying by, flying by
In the human race
In the human race
In the human race
In the human race
Track Name: Raise Me
RAISE ME
for Savannah

I know what it's like to see his face
cold dark nights & bitter taste
Thought this time he'd push me past the edge
felt that body pressed against my chest
cold air breathing down my neck
giving in to consequences 
til you came to raise me from the dead
til you came to raise me from the dead

I Followed that familiar creature
to Wallow in the waste of my regret
But Time is such a cruel teacher
Wish all i knew now i knew it then
Waking to a dark surrender
Well without the strength to lift my head
For dreaming that i can't remember
And you said

No i won't let go no i don't mind
& i'll be here waiting til you remember hope
I won't let go we'll give it time
& i'll be here waiting til you find your way home
 i won't let go no i don't mind
& i'll be here waiting til you find your way home

I can feel you gaze upon me
But I don't have the strength to lift my head
Wish i could raise my eyes to meet yours
But i don't have the strength to lift my head
I can feel you warm as witness
But I don't have the strength to lift my head
you say i'm worth my weight in weakness
You Love as if to raise me from the dead
