A LITTLE LOVE – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2016 All Rights Reserved

Tonight, the fear will fall away
Don’t fight the magic or the memory
Hold tight, ‘cause we’re going on a ride
To the depths of understanding

Everyone needs a little love
Let the music in your soul
Everyone needs a little love
Let the melody take control

Life, is only what you make
That’s right, we control our destiny
We might be floating out in space
But for another day, we won’t fade away

Everyone needs a little love
Let the music in your soul
Everyone needs a little love
Let the melody take control

I’m deeper than the ocean
No regrets, no more tears
You have my devotion!
Come on, visualize a better life

Everyone needs a little love
Let the music in your soul
Everyone needs a little love
Let the melody take control

A LITTLE MORE LOVE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney

Yes, I played my part, I don’t think I’m an angel
But something fell apart long before I maimed it
Now I’m on the run, I guess what’s done is done
Now I’m on the run again
Yes, I’m taking off, me and my jaded heart
Now I’m on the run again
Let’s not pretend that you don’t comprehend!

‘Cause I need a little more love
I don’t ever get enough
My soul is worn out and torn
I need to escape you, ‘cause I’m giving up
I need a little more love
But you don’t ever give it up
My world is hollow and dark
So don’t make a scene when I get up and walk

I’m on the run, I’m on the run again
I need a little more love

ADDICTED – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

And the girl in the corner has taken your place
Tables turn, wipe the smile from your face

Blood rushing through my veins
I was feeling weak, I was replaced
I listen to the sound, listen to the sound
I listen to the sound of my world crashing down

Now you don’t have significance in my life
Except to measure how far you are from right
Now I listen to the sound, listen to the sound
I listen to the sound of my walls breaking round

I used to be addicted to you
But you know that it’s gone
Can’t go on, holding on, hoping you’d see the girl I am
I was addicted to you, but it’s all in the past
No it’s not going to last, I need more
You never give me more

So many things have changed
That I was trying to imitate
Now I listen to the sound, listen to the sound
I listen to the sound of my head spinning round
Well, I’m authentic, it’s the way that I feel
So unattractive, your unbridled envy
Now you listen to the sound, listen to the sound
You listen to the sound, I’m the talk of the town

I used to be addicted to you (Addicted to you)
But you know that it’s gone (Addicted to you)
Can’t go on, holding on (Addicted to you)
Hoping you’d see the girl I am (I was addicted to you)
I was addicted to you (Addicted to you)
But it’s all in the past (Addicted to you)
No it’s not going to last (Addicted to you)
I need more (I was addicted to you)
You never give me more

Blood rushing through my veins
I was feeling weak, I was replaced
I listen to the sound, listen to the sound
I listen to the sound of my world crashing down

Now you don’t have significance in my life
Except to measure how far you are from right
Now I listen to the sound, listen to the sound
I listen to the sound of my walls breaking round

I used to be addicted to you (Addicted to you)
But you know that it’s gone (Addicted to you)
Can’t go on, holding on (Addicted to you)
Hoping you’d see the girl I am (I was addicted to you)
I was addicted to you (Addicted to you)
But it’s all in the past (Addicted to you)
No it’s not going to last (Addicted to you)
I need more (I was addicted to you)
You never give me more

And the girl in the corner has taken your place
Tables turn, wipe the smile from your face

ALIEN GIRL

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney and Jessica Gilson
Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2017 All Rights Reserved

Yeah, you’re kinda strange, that’s what people say
When you’re all alone, trying to keep away
And every day in school
You bring your books and stick to rules
The rest of us just play it cool, we’re only having fun

The pain you can’t deny, you keep it all inside
But then I’ve seen you cry
When you think nobody’s watching
You’ve got me feeling bad, ‘cause I can see you’re sad
But I can’t say a thing, ‘cause all my friends are listening

You’re an alien – Alien Girl

Never want to fit, going your own way
Everybody says you’re on a different plane
When I think of you, I wanna say you’re kinda cool
But I’m too scared to be a fool, so I just play along

The pain you can’t deny, you keep it all inside
But then I’ve seen you cry
When you think nobody’s watching
You’ve got me feeling bad, ‘cause I can see you’re sad
But I can’t say a thing, ‘cause all my friends are listening

You’re an alien – Alien Girl

You’re the alien that no one wants to see
No one wants to know and no one wants to be
You’re my celestial, weirdo extraterrestrial
But I don’t know I could risk it all and tell you how I feel

You’re an alien – Alien Girl

ALL FALL DOWN – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2021 All Rights Reserved

Everybody’s stumbling around
Lost in the dark, can’t find a way out
Innocence gone, but not hope
God, can I cope with what’s about to change?

Feels like an acid trip, this life – Is it what I signed up for?
Well I don’t think it’s working out
Like I thought it would when I arrived
Now we barely stay afloat!

I watch it all falling down
Beside my feet lands another clown
If I prevail, will I succeed?
No matter, I stand tall and I watch it all fall down

It feels like I’m in a movie
I play a role with undeciphered lines
My fellow actors, they don’t know
They’re on the payroll ’til they die

When they initiated this program
Created with a quote
Humanity was something beautiful
The perfect note – Now it’s all a crappy joke!

I watch it all falling down
Beside my feet lands another clown
If I prevail, will I succeed?
No matter, I stand tall and I watch it all fall down

Ring a ring o’roses, a pocket full of posies
A-tishoo, a-tishoo, we all fall down

I watch it all falling down
Beside my feet lands another clown
If I prevail, will I succeed?
No matter, I stand tall and I watch it all fall down

ALPHABET ON MY TONGUE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics & Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2004 All Rights Reserved

You don’t know that I wouldn’t have said Yes
I didn’t get the chance to say anything at all
I don’t care if you want to take what I say out of context
But please, please don’t put an alphabet on my tongue

I see you without me, now we’re living apart
And I don’t like what my eyes are trying to tell my heart
That you’re in someone else’s arms

If you wanted to take this further
You should have indicated your intentions
I don’t care, there is no point in trying to second guess
How the hell was I supposed to know?

I see you without me, now we’re living apart
And I don’t like what my eyes are trying to tell my heart
That you’re in someone else’s arms

This is what happens when people don’t talk
When we don’t want to fall
Missing out on opportunities that we
We don’t want to see
I guess we’re conditioned to say nothing

You don’t know that I wouldn’t have said Yes
I didn’t get the chance to say anything at all
I don’t care if you want to take what I say out of context
But please, please don’t put an alphabet on my tongue

BE GONE – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by 909 Studios
©2019 All Rights Reserved

You’ve been fooling, you’ve been faking
Everything you do and say
I was sucked in, but now I think
I’d prefer it if you went away

Now I know I need to take care of myself
Now I know it’s time to get off the shelf
Now I know, I don’t wanna play
Now I know that you’re a fake
And I don’t want this anymore

When you turn to the right and I’m out of sight
Ask yourself why, it’s too late, baby
‘Cause I’ll be gone
When you can’t sleep tight, your bed’s too wide
You’re gonna realize it’s too late baby
But I’ll be gone

Keep assuming, but I ain’t listening
If you’ve nothing good to say
I’m a woman with love to give and
I’m gonna give it back to me

I gave you everything I had to give
Gave you my heart, my soul, my light
And you kept on, you kept on taking
Without a thought of reciprocating
I was way too accommodating
No more! No more!

When you turn to the right and I’m out of sight
Ask yourself why, it’s too late, baby
‘Cause I’ll be gone
When you can’t sleep tight, your bed’s too wide
You’re gonna realize it’s too late baby
But I’ll be gone

BEAUTY QUEEN – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

How do I look in her beautiful clothes?
Well, they fit quite well and they’re not that old
So, you said it was over, that it was your decision
And you’re happy with me now
So why do I feel so unsure?

It’s like she sleeps with us each night
It’s her you want to make love to
She always steals my limelight
Just when you are falling for me

‘Cause she’s your Beauty Queen
She ain’t nothing special, but that’s not what I mean
She’s like my shadow when I stand by candlelight
I don’t think that this feels right, no
She’s your Beauty Queen
If I opened up your heart, I know just what I’d see
Her pretty face laughing back at me
If she’s so special, why did you leave?

When we go out, moving on the dance floor
I know your eyes will be over my shoulder
Looking to the door
Though I may be with you, it’s like she’s got some hold
I want to call her up and say:
“Woman, please let my man go!”

She doesn’t do it consciously
She’s back in love with someone else
But something’s there
Right where it wasn’t there before

‘Cause she’s your Beauty Queen
She ain’t nothing special, but that’s not what I mean
She’s like my shadow when I stand by candlelight
I don’t think that this feels right, no
She’s your Beauty Queen
If I opened up your heart, I know just what I’d see
Her pretty face laughing back at me
If she’s so special, why did you leave?

You make her out to be a saint
That even God could not contain
With every word, our love you taint
All these distorted facts you paint
You’ve shown me yours, I’ll show you mine
Your punishment, the end of time
You want to play, but not with me
You play with your sobriety

BELIEVE – DSM feat. EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney and Dream Sound Masters
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Ooh, it’s up to you
Believe in yourself, leave all the world behind
There’s nothing that you can’t do
Keep believing in Love, that’s what will pull you through

Deep inside, you can feel something brewing
It’s the way you know everything is on
Everything is in your Soul

Sometimes, it feels like you’re not going to reach it
What you want to hold
You’ve got to know that you can
Bring it home

Ooh, it’s up to you
Believe in yourself, leave all the world behind
There’s nothing that you can’t do
Keep believing in Love, that’s what will pull you through

Don’t hide what’s inside of your Spirit
You gotta set it free
You came into this World to give it everything it needs
Sometimes you think that you can’t trust your feelings
Or sensibilities
Truth is you’ve got to give love to receive

Ooh, it’s up to you
Believe in yourself, leave all the world behind
There’s nothing that you can’t do
Keep believing in Love, that’s what will pull you through

Your Soul, Little Child – you’re so beautiful
You need to stop being critical
Just rest for a while in a meaningful
Vibe with your Soul Tribe
Let’s get Spiritual!

Your Soul, Little Child – you’re so beautiful
You don’t understand what you are
You’re the Rhythm of the Universe

BOUND TOGETHER – PMF

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

I’m bleeding from my eyes again
I can’t unsee the things I’ve seen, oh no
All you sinners rise again
Leave the shadows in between, oh

Together we must stand or forever we will fall
We must face the enemy
And when it’s all over, we’ll complete our destiny
We’ll be free

Bound together, we try to hurt each other
Hearing voices in the prison walls
Filled with hatred, tied up but separated
By the power that defiles us all
Bound together, we try to hurt each other
Hearing voices in the prison walls
Activated, we’re not that complicated
Use the magic here inside us all

It’s burning in my mind again
The truth that we must make this cease, oh no
Imprisoned all our lives, but then
We let it happen, no release, oh

With this master plan, we can break the wall
We’ll destroy the enemy
And when we’re back from war, we’ll complete our destiny
We’ll be free

Bound together, we try to hurt each other
Hearing voices in the prison walls
Filled with hatred, tied up, yet separated
By the power that defiles us all
Bound together, we try to hurt each other
Hearing voices in the prison walls
Activated, we’re not that complicated
Use the magic here inside us all

BREATHE – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Word on the town, bringing me down
Gossip about my man
Try it out for size – is it truth or lies?
Well, I don’t understand

This love is overrated, not how it’s meant to be
Am I intoxicated, ’cause it’s confusing me
Don’t think we’re gonna make it
Yeah, you don’t want to see
So, somebody help me please

I need to breathe! C’mon and give me some air
I need to breathe! Temptation everywhere
I need to breathe! And you don’t even care
I can’t get enough, I can’t get enough air

We need to talk or else I’ll walk
But you’re going undercover
Don’t need your kiss, I’m better than this
I’ll find myself another lover

Don’t even try to fake it, ’cause I see right through you
You know how much I hate it when you won’t tell the truth
I’m not gonna take it, just what you put me through
So, somebody help me please

Can’t get enough, yeah

I’m not your toy, you silly boy
I’ve heard these things they’re saying
Your love for hire, there’s smoke, there’s fire
What’s with these games we’re playing?

Feels like I’m suffocated, so what you trying to prove?
Breakup anticipated, who’s first to make a move?
You’re being way too shady, here’s what I’m gonna do
So, somebody help me please

I need to breathe! C’mon and give me some air
I need to breathe! Temptation everywhere
I need to breathe! And you don’t even care
I can’t get enough, I can’t get enough air

Breathe! Can’t get enough
Breathe! Can’t get enough air
Breathe!
What’s this relationship? It’s a sinking ship!
Breathe!

BROKEN – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

When I think back, didn’t know that
The life I’d lead would break me
And the ones that I’d be close to would only let me down
I believe in being open but a thief will always get in
And take what’s in your heart

This is for you – you made me feel dirty in my own skin
This is for you – all your promises have done me in
And this is for you
You gotta know that your knife’s done bad
I never did nothin’ to you but you could have been
A better friend than stabbing my back
(How could I know that you wouldn’t be there for me?
(How could I know that you’d let me down time and again)

Now I’m not broken any more
I found a cure, or should I say a cure found me
And I’m a better girl than I’ve ever been
I’m not broken any more
You don’t own me now – I’m fixed now

In the nightclub, at a party…I never found my soldier
Who would lie down in the trenches and
Cover my old ground
I believe in being truthful but a lie is so inviting
To those that bring us down

Now I’m not broken any more
I found a cure, or should I say a cure found me
And I’m a better girl than I’ve ever been
I’m not broken any more
You don’t own me now – I’m fixed now

It was hopeless, I was sinking
I couldn’t clear the mess I was in
Then I heard him here beside me
Waiting for me to come round
I believe in things that I see and
I know that my enemy can’t touch what’s in my heart

CELEBRITY OBSESSION – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

Celebrity obsession…

It doesn’t matter if you got a slice of talent
Because they only want you if you’re messed up
It helps to be Daddy’s Little Princess
An hotel heiress, American child star
If you don’t have the look and you don’t fit the mould
You can’t be something that you’re not just for the money
Let me tell you what I learned up ’til now

It’s all about the one that you date, that you’re cheating on
(You ain’t going nowhere sailing down the mainstream)
The drugs that you take, anorexia they feed upon
(Nobody wants you if you won’t make a fool of yourself)
Reality shows, cocaine up your nose
(Come over here, just shut your mouth)
Private videos…where can I get those clothes?
(We don’t want opinions, we just want someone to talk about)

Don’t worry about it if they catch you doing something
Because they really love it when you mess up
It helps to be tweakin’ in the morning
Perezalicious, half-hearted Wino
Don’t bother learning your craft – that’s a fact
If it wasn’t so pathetic it would be some kind of funny
Let me tell you what I learned up ’til now

Overdose…miss the gig…man, I think I’m pregnant
Did you call OK? Let’s have a happy ending
Say cheese, pretty please, it’s the paparazzi
I quit my girl band – new perfume out next week!
Who’s that man on my step? He says he knows me
Did we have a thing? Did he get any photos of me?
I can’t move my face! I can’t move my face!
Oh my goodness, my fillets just won’t stay in place
I bet you wish you looked half as good as me
I bet you wish you were a celebrity

It doesn’t matter if you got a slice of talent
Because they only want you if you’re messed up
It helps to be married to a footballer
Breast augmentation, comedian’s daughter
If you don’t have the look and you don’t fit the mould
You can’t be something that you’re not just for the money
Let me tell you what I learned up ’til now

CHRISTOPHER – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics & Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1996 All Rights Reserved

It’s a mistake
Why can’t you see this is all a mistake?

You’re laughing and telling yourself
This is what you wanted
Yeah, you grin and keep spinning her around
(Why can’t you see that)
Until you’re a dervish and everyone else is a blur
(This is what you wanted?)

Ah, Christopher, what have you done?

You planned the whole thing by yourself
This is what you wanted
Yeah, you hired the best caterer in town
(Why can’t you see that)
Don’t want to be too old to run with your sons in the park
(This is what you wanted?)

Ah, Christopher, what have you done?
This isn’t a business transaction
Make-believing you’re somebody else
(Why can’t you just leave life to chance?)
What if she ever found out
(’Cause she don’t love you)
That she’s not the one who draws you out
(And you don’t love her)
But her name fell out of a hat?
(Why can’t you just leave life to chance, yeah?)

You’re making a fool of yourself
This is what you wanted
Bought a house and you’ve got a flash car
(why can’t you see that)
If you think you’re changing the girl, then you’re mistaken
(This is what you wanted?)

Ah, Christopher, what have you done?
This isn’t a business transaction
Make-believing you’re somebody else
(Why can’t you just leave life to chance?)
What if she ever found out (’Cause she don’t love you)
That she’s not the one who draws you out
(And you don’t love her)
But her name fell out of a hat?
(Why can’t you just leave life to chance, yeah?)

She’s not right for you
Christopher, robbin’ a girl of her twenties only spells trouble
(You can tell everyone this is what you want)
He said: “You’re a fine one to talk;
You wouldn’t be saddled with everyday life.”

(Why can’t you just leave life to chance, yeah?)
Oh, Christopher, what have you done?

CRAVE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1995 All Rights Reserved

Help me. Talk to me. Save me and take me in your arms.

You need it, you want it, scarred, exsanguinated
Try to resist, but you can’t
Voice inside calling you, leading you to the ritual
Feeding too much…

Save me, I’ll get what you want
I’ll try to supply what you crave
Come on and take me into your arms
That’s where I belong – I can’t save myself
Save me, I’ll get what you want
Don’t try to deny what you crave
Come on and take me into your arms
That’s where I belong – I can’t save myself

You cut me open, my veins run with poison
Do I exist? What’s your plan?
Voice inside calling you, leading you to the ritual
Feeding too much…

Save me, I’ll get what you want
I’ll try to supply what you crave
Come on and take me into your arms
That’s where I belong – I can’t save myself
Save me, I’ll get what you want
Don’t try to deny what you crave
Come on and take me into your arms
That’s where I belong – I can’t save myself

Look at you
You keep holding out and I wonder now what’s left of you
‘Cause it all hangs out, like the system’s down
Empty carcass now, tired of bleeding

Voice inside calling you, leading you to the ritual
Feeling too much…

DAYS GONE BY – ROCKSTAR ALLSTARS

(Anna Lux, Alienare, Schwarzschild, Seraina Telli, Spiegelbild, Elias Bertini, Aura Davis, Queen Tantrum & QUAND)

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2021 All Rights Reserved

My ship has sailed the seas so long
With not a port in sight
I’m not too sure where I belong
My dreams have taken flight

For days gone by, my love, for days gone by
We’ll drink a cup of kindness, love
For the sake of days gone by

The road ahead is fractured yet
But hope I still can find
The friends to come, the friends we’ve met
Will stand the test of time

For days gone by, my love, for days gone by
We’ll drink a cup of kindness, love
For the sake of days gone by

There never was a better chance
To say what’s in my heart
So whether friendship or romance
We’ll never break apart

For days gone by, my love, for days gone by
We’ll drink a cup of kindness, love
For the sake of days gone by

These words, commit them to your mind
Whether near or far
We’ll overcome the rocky times
This is who we are

For days gone by, my dear, for days gone by
We’ll drink a cup of kindness here
For the sake of days gone by

DESCENT – PMF

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

So the system claims another one
One’s too quick to blame the other one
With humanity, a dog in chains
We’ve been far too quick to separate

Is it any wonder that we’re failing?
Is there any reason to pretend?
Is it all about the past and future?
Can we even miss this dark descent?

Is it any wonder that we’re hurting?
Is communication reticent?
Is it over ‘cause we’re undeserving?
Can we set a new precedent?

Now it’s time to face what’s been done
There’s no one left to save, if we’re gone
With humanity, a dog in chains
We’ve been far too quick to separate

Is it any wonder that we’re failing?
Is there any reason to pretend?
Is it all about the past and future?
Can we even miss this dark descent?

Is it any wonder that we’re hurting?
Is communication reticent?
Is it over ‘cause we’re undeserving?
Can we set a new precedent?

We watch as hope falls down
We watch it drift away
The curtain is falling, we’ve taken our last bow
We’re hoping, still hoping
We’re drowning, we’re fading
Here waiting, we’re craving
How will it all work out?

Is it any wonder that we’re failing?
Is there any reason to pretend?
Is it all about the past and future?
Can we even miss this dark descent?

I desire, you’re the one I want
I desire, so hold me in your arms
I’ve been searching for someone new
Now, I need you to come and fill me with your desire

C’mon, we’re taking it higher
C’mon, we’re taking it higher
Oh, I want you and I need you
I need you to come and fill me with your desire

C’mon and take a chance on my love
‘Cause I need romance
In my life I want something new
I need you to come and fill me with your desire

I desire! I desire
I desire! I desire

C’mon now, you can save me from the fire
C’mon now, you can save me with your desire

Good God, I wanna say, you’re looking so fine
And if I’m gonna say it, I wanna make you mine
I’ve got a rising fever, it’s getting hot in here
C’mon and get so hot! Yeah!

C’mon now, you can save me from the fire
C’mon now, you can save me with your desire

I desire! I desire, yeah

DESTINATION – PMF

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2020 All Rights Reserved

Waking is painful!
Dismiss the program, identify your enemy
You must realise they’re not interested in your well-being
Taking advantage, destroy, control
Pushing your boundaries, heads will roll

How will you pay what you ignore today?

We are headed at last to the destination
Will you choose freedom or throw it away?
We’ve come so far from where we started
And the destination can open your mind
Or make you a slave
Only you can set you free

Last to the table!
Pieces of silver, fill up your belly, lick your plate clean
They understand what motivates you psychologically
Totalitarian? Or Egalitarian?
The choice is ours, what do you say?

How will you pay what you ignore today?

We are headed at last to the destination
Will you choose freedom or throw it away?
We’ve come so far from where we started
And the destination can open your mind
Or make you a slave
Only you can set you free

Barely surviving, simply existing this thing you call life
Painfully clear
Tongue, it can’t talk while you’re taking a walk on the edge of a knife
Painfully clear – it’s shameful!
Ah-ooh, oh – it’s shameful!

How will you pay?
How will you pay?

EL VERANO HA VUELTO DE NUEVO – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Estoy aqui contigo
No hay nadie mas en el mundo para mi
Mi corazon es tuyo y tu corazon es mio

El sol brillara, las aves cantaran
Me siento como una adolescente
Y creo que lo que me dices
El verano ha vuelto de nuevo

Mi corazon
Te amo

Durante tanto tiempo
El invierno estuvo en mi alma
Pero vinistes luego
Ahora se que puedo vivir de nuevo

El sol brillara, las aves cantaran
Me siento como una adolescente
Y creo que lo que me dices
El verano ha vuelto de nuevo

Mi corazon
Te amo

FACE TO FACE – KHANDA

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

There’s a chance for us
If we stop fighting and never give up
It’s not too late to change
There’s a place for us
When we feel down, we’ve got to get up
‘Cause life is what we make it

Face to face, eye to eye
Time is turning for you and I
It’s not too late, don’t hesitate
We’re always playing face to face

You and I together
You and I forever

Would you fight for us?
Deep in your heart, you know this is love
Invested in this game
Would you die for us?
Maybe I might be asking too much
If there’s a chance we’ve got to take it

Face to face, eye to eye
Time is turning for you and I
It’s not too late, don’t hesitate
We’re always playing face to face

You and I together
You and I forever

FADED – CREEON

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2021 All Rights Reserved

You’re the one I have to blame
You’re the one I gave my shame to
When I started in this game
I threw us into disarray
And I blamed everything, yes, I blamed everything
Oh, I blamed everything on you!

Your beauty faded, time got wasted
And I keep failing to reach any dream
I hate it, what I’ve created
The darkness in my heart, it feels so real

I could try to fix this mess
But it would take a lot of strength
Without a guaranteed success
It’s more than I want to invest
So I’ll blame everything, yes, I’ll blame everything
Oh, I’ll blame everything on you!

Your beauty faded, time got wasted
And I keep failing to reach any dream
I hate it, what I’ve created
The darkness in my heart is real
Your beauty faded, time got wasted
And I keep failing to reach any dream
I hate it, what I’ve created
The darkness in my heart, it feels so real

(So long, so long, my love)
What am I saying, I’m tired of despair
Don’t want to be jaded, so I’d better beware
Of this dream that you’re selling – it’s a beautiful lie
I’ve made a decision – I’d rather live than die!

Your beauty faded, time got wasted
And I keep failing to reach any dream
I hate it, what I’ve created
The darkness in my heart is real
Your beauty faded, time got wasted
And I keep failing to reach any dream
I hate it, what I’ve created
The darkness in my heart is real

FALLING AWAY – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2018 All Rights Reserved

I’m passing demons in my darkness
With every breath, I’m seeing your ghost
Trying to make sense of what has happened
‘Cause now you’re gone, I can’t trust my memory

You’re falling away from me
And that’s what hurts the most
Yeah, you’re falling away, falling away
And that’s what hurts the most

That’s what hurts the most
Falling away, falling away – that’s what hurts the most

It’s like it never even happened
It never was, it’s never gonna be
I know you think I’m acting crazy
But now you’re gone, how am I supposed to feel?

Now you’re falling away from me
And that’s what hurts the most
Yeah, you’re falling away, falling away
And that’s what hurts the most

That’s what hurts the most
Falling away, falling away – that’s what hurts the most
That’s what hurts the most
Falling away, falling away

If I could just forget you, it’s getting hard to forgive you
I don’t deserve the way you’ve been treating me, if you wanted to be free
There is a way to say Goodbye, you don’t have to lie, no
I know that this is the end, you don’t have to pretend
That it never happened

You’re falling away from me
And that’s what hurts the most
Yeah, you’re falling away, falling away
And that’s what hurts the most

Falling away, falling away

FEEL SOMETHING – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2017 All Rights Reserved

Tell me what you feel when you give it up
‘Cause I don’t feel anything
Give me the time of day, don’t walk away
When I won’t see anything

Hear me when I cry these salty tears
And I can’t taste anything
Here I am coming back for more

I want to feel something! Can you feel something?

Sometimes, don’t you feel like
The day has got you by the neck
There’s times I feel like a daisy chain
Breaking in silence
I wonder if I could, oh, would I break you, like I’m broken?
Here I am, coming back for more

I want to feel something! Can you feel something?
‘Cause I don’t feel anything!

I never got to say goodbye
I guess that we both paid the price
But now I’m back and I’m begging you to stay
‘Cause I want to feel something!
I can’t tell you why we don’t get to die
But I want to feel, I want to try

Is it you or me, or are you sleeping?
Are you breaking down?
Lead me through those passageways that lead
Between my thoughts and I could never dream of
Loving anyone as much as you – I tried
Here I am, coming back for more

I want to feel something! Can you feel something?
I want to feel something! Can you feel something?
‘Cause I don’t feel anything! No, I don’t feel anything
I don’t feel anything

FIGHT – DIVISION:DARK

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Nothing tastes the same anymore
Nobody lives inside this home
I cannot take it anymore, but I refuse to give up!

Conscience, burning in my soul
And I’ve got to keep control
But the program corrupted a long time ago!

Where is this taking me? I don’t know!
Seems like I already died! You can’t have my soul!
I cannot stand all the lies! And I don’t want to go!
Watch as I prepare to fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Nothing looks like it did before
And nobody speaks up for the cause
I don’t want to think anymore, but I refuse to give up!

Conscience, burning in my soul
And I’ve got to keep control
But the program corrupted a long time ago!

Where is this taking me? I don’t know!
Seems like I already died! You can’t have my soul!
I cannot stand all the lies! And I don’t want to go!
Watch as I prepare to fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Fight!

F* YOU ALL – CREEON

©2019 All Rights Reserved

I feel mad ‘bout what I’ve done
I’m so sad to lose this way
Please don’t tell me that I (I made mistakes)
And every time I think of you
I think of all we’ve done
The time just passed by in the blink of an eye
But now you turn away 

FUCK! I did everything wrong, I lost all I loved
All who said it’s right – FUCK YOU ALL!

Sad and hurt I feel inside
Sad and hurt I try to hide
Sad and hurt I watch her go away
Sad and hurt I try to bound
Sad and hurt I turn around
Sad and hurt I shout out loud 

I hate the man that I’ve become
I never meant to live this way
I made it worse each time I (I made mistakes)
And everything I wanted to have
I cast into the grave
It turned out so bad, lost all that I had
And now you turn away

FUCK! I did everything wrong, I lost all I loved
All who said it’s right – FUCK YOU ALL!

GIMME A BREAK – CREEON

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2021 All Rights Reserved

I’ve had enough of your attitude and miserable face
About done with your whining, and every complaint
You’re no fun to be around anymore
You’re killing me, you’re killing me, oh!

I work harder than a slave, but it’s never enough
You want more, more, more, do you want my blood?
It’s overrated, this thing called love
Yeah, you’re killing me, you’re killing me, oh!

So long, I’ll be sad we didn’t make it
But I’m done, even though I like you naked
Your body’s not enough to put up with your
Moaning, complaining, upsetting, derailing!
I’m sad the opportunity got wasted
But I’m not gonna sit around and take it
Talking down to me like you’re my employer, not my lover
Neither nor the other

(I don’t want you, I don’t want you now)
Just give me a break!
(I don’t want you, I just want you out) Just give me a break!
(I don’t want you, and I won’t back down) 
All I want to say is step back and gimme a break!

Eyes adjust to the dark, as I turn out the light
Watch this space, see me gone in the blink of an eye
I don’t want you around anymore
‘Cause you’re killing me, you’re killing me, oh!

Shadows long, carry on, as I wave you goodbye
Get another damn fool, it’ll take no time
Find someone else, I want to be by myself
‘Cause you’re killing me, oh!

(I don’t want you, I don’t want you now)
Just give me a break!
(I don’t want you, I just want you out) Just give me a break!
(I don’t want you, and I won’t back down) 
All I want to say is step back and gimme a break!

I’ve had enough of your attitude
I’ve had enough so I’m leaving you
Princess, I’m just a pauper to you
I let it go on too long, on too long, on too long!

Just give me a break! Just give me a break!
All I want to say is step back and give me a break!

HOLLYWOOD – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

You’re not the one, you ruined everything

You’re not the one – you ruined everything
You’re not the one, don’t try to take my liberty
I’ve seen it all, been here before
I gave you my best but you screwed it up again
I’m not the one who ever let you down
So let it go, I’m done with messing round
Your foolish mind, so open wide
Taking the arsenic so deep inside, yeah!

Your web of lies, you act so good
Yeah, you should be in Hollywood!
Try to twist my mind
Only good thing I got from you was your child!
You talk so cheap, didn’t think you could
Yeah, you should be in Hollywood!
And I won’t be here waiting for you
For so long you had me fooled

You’re not the one who gave up everything
You dropped the ball, so irresponsible
So what am I? Your petty crime?
You’re wasting my time, little boy don’t cry!
If you must consummate your seedy lust
Take it somewhere I can’t see you turn to dust
You know it all, so why are you falling?
Now I feel that I never really knew you!

Your web of lies, you act so good
Yeah, you should be in Hollywood!
Try to twist my mind
Only good thing I got from you was your child!
You talk so cheap, didn’t think you could
Yeah, you should be in Hollywood!
And I won’t be here waiting for you
For so long you had me fooled

You’re not the one – you ruined everything
You’re not the one, don’t try to take a piece of me
Hey stupid boy, you won’t destroy me
I gave you my best but you screwed it up again
I’m not the one who doesn’t come around
Still can’t believe the disappointment I have found
Your foolish mind, so open wide
Taking the arsenic so deep inside, yeah!

You’re not the one
You ruined everything (You should be in Hollywood!)
You’re not the one
You ruined everything
You ruined everything

HONESTY – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

You look at me, my painted smile to deceive you
It’s not over – it’s never gonna be over
And I stand next to me, and I feel diseased just being here
And I’m not free, ’cause I see what she sees
She’s just a corpse pickin’ at her cuts to see you

Sadistic streak – and it gets so hard thinkin’ rationally
And I’m older. I’m always older.
And I feel so weak, it’s just not like it used to be
When I was you and you were me

But in my Honesty, you’d better believe it
If you want to see the colour beneath it
And if I made you leave – that’s not how I see it
And if I knew then what I know now…

You look at me – is my painted smile still deceiving you?
I told her, yes, I told her
She’s black and blue, what did you do? Tell me, darlin’, is it clear to you?
And I wonder why she didn’t end her life?

But in my Honesty, you’d better believe it
If you want to see the colour beneath it
And if I made you leave – that’s not how I see it
And if I knew then what I know now

She’s just a word forming on your lips to please you
She’s just a wreck slashing at her wrists to see you
She’s just a corpse picking at her cuts to feel you

And if I knew then what I know now…
And if I knew then what I know now…
If I knew then…

HOPE IN HELL – CREEON feat. SERRAINA TELLI

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2021 All Rights Reserved

If I ruled the world, the King of all I see
I’d give it up for me and you
And if it was my role to turn the hands of time
I’d give it up if I could be with you

And I want it so bad
I can taste it like it’s fame
I hold you here and then
I want it so bad
I can’t face it how you’ve changed
Now we’re coming to the end

It all stacks up with a little bit of hope
It all falls down with a little bit of hell
I said it all stacks up with a little bit of hope
And then it all falls down with a little bit of hell

If I had a chance, the opportunity
To keep the world just standing still
I’ve had it all the same, every little thing
‘Cause if that’s what it takes, you know I will

And I want you so bad (I want you so bad, I don’t care)
Won’t make out that I don’t care (I won’t pretend)
This I won’t pretend
But I want you so bad (I want you so bad)
I don’t want to hear you say (I won’t hear you saying)
That we’re coming to the end

It all stacks up with a little bit of hope
It all falls down with a little bit of hell
I said it all stacks up with a little bit of hope
And then it all falls down with a little bit of hell

I AM WARRIOR – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

So long we’ve lived under your rules enslaved
By the vision that you hold, your pride while we keep dying
So long we’ve cried for lovers lost and hope defied
And nobody used to see the men behind the curtain
Or their mission

But as the day of reckoning draws ever near
Warriors rise from slumber, we’re taking back our world
It was meant to be
A promised paradise, where everyone can thrive
Peace and harmony, not lies and greed where no one’s free

I am a fighter! I Am Warrior
Time to smash your system down,
I am your nightmare – I am Light!
I am a fighter! I Am Warrior
Time to crush your plans under my feet
I am the one you fear – I Am Light!

How long did you think you could make us suffer for your sins?
The hammer falls, I accuse and sentence you to life, I’ll bind
Move on, these are not your people and this is not your time
You are nothing but shadow beasts, so scatter, run and hide

And as the day of reckoning draws ever near
Warriors rise from slumber, we’re taking back our world, it was meant to be
A promised paradise, where everyone can thrive
Peace and harmony, not lies and greed where no one’s free

I am a fighter! I Am Warrior
Time to smash your system down,
I am your nightmare – I am Light!
I am a fighter! I Am Warrior
Time to crush your plans under my feet
I am the one you fear – I Am Light!

I Am Warrior!

I DON’T WANT TO BE THE ONE

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2010 All Rights Reserved

I see you, safe in the arms of ignorant bliss
Living your life just like you want it
Unbeknownst to you it is gonna come crashing down

This past year has been exceptionally hard on you
You should be so proud that you made it through
You don’t know how strong you are

I don’t wanna be the one to break you
I don’t wanna be the one who opens those eyes
I don’t wanna be the one to ruin you
Do I leave you in denial?

I have proof, if you want to know the plain truth
‘Cause you don’t see just how she plays you
But is it down to me to break your heart?

I don’t wanna be the one to break you
I don’t wanna be the one who opens those eyes
I don’t wanna be the one to ruin you
Do I leave you in denial?

And they say time heals all
And they say it’s better to know
And you say, this keeps you alive
So how can I be the one to tell you to die?
Your woman’s out of line, she’s not the one you wanted
Instead of wasting time, find out if this is your kid
She stayed out at the weekend with that man
But how can I be the one?

I see you, safe in the arms of ignorant bliss
Living your life just like you want it
Unbeknownst to you it is gonna come crashing down

I have proof, if you want to know the plain truth
‘Cause you don’t see just how she plays you
But is it down to me to break your heart?

I don’t wanna be the one to break you
I don’t wanna be the one who opens those eyes
I don’t wanna be the one to ruin you
Do I leave you in denial?

Amazing, the way you look, my love
And when you talk, it’s the sweetest sound
Like liquid sunshine falling from your mouth

I gotta get myself another lover
Anything to distract from the way that I’m
Falling for you
Yeah, you don’t know what you’re doing to me

I love your love
But you don’t want my game
Heartbreak, it’s so tough
But nothing can take it away

Intoxicating, when you look into my eyes
But I know that the time ain’t right
So I’ll keep hiding how I feel inside

I gotta get myself another lover
Anything to distract from the way that I’m
Falling for you
Yeah, you don’t know what you’re doing to me

I love your love
But you don’t want my game
Heartbreak, it’s so tough
But nothing can take it away

Yeah, I’m falling for you
I love it

I love your love
But you don’t want my game
Heartbreak, it’s so tough
But nothing can take it away

(I ONLY DO THESE THINGS ‘CAUSE) I LOVE YOU – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

Everything will turn out fine
‘Cause we’re meant to be together
And I know you feel the same
It’s the way it’s meant to be, we’ll be so happy
Believe me
(I only do these things ’cause I love you)

Instead of wasting time, accept the things I tell you
‘Cause I know what’s best for us
You don’t see what I see, when I see
A future grown through our history!
(I only do these things ’cause I love you)

Now you want to tell me no? I don’t think so!
When you push me away I know you don’t really mean it
You and I could be so good, I know we would
Just try to relax; you gotta learn to let go!

It’s been the longest time since we woke up together
And I know you miss it too
So I’ll make the first move, won’t hold it against you
I forgive you
(I only do these things ’cause I love you)

You can’t be wondering how I came to this conclusion
I don’t know what’s wrong with you
Unless you lied and if so, that would make me so angry
(I only do these things ’cause I love you)

Now you want to tell me no? I don’t think so!
When you push me away I know you don’t really mean it
You and I could be so good, I know we would
Just try to relax – you gotta learn to let go!

Stop struggling, it doesn’t hurt
I thought by now that you would have come to your senses
Can’t you see it’s you and me – Not her! Who’s she?
I don’t care! She’s out of the picture!

Now you want to tell me no? (Not her! Who’s she? Not her!)
I don’t think so!
When you push me away I know you don’t really mean it
You and I could be so good (Stop struggling, it doesn’t hurt)
I know we would (Not her! Not her! Who’s she?)
Just try to relax – you gotta learn to let go!

Now you want to tell me no? I don’t think so
I only do these things ’cause I love you

I know you’re feeling overwhelmed
I know you’re feeling between us and them
I know your feeling, don’t hide your scars
We need the darkness to reach the stars

Rivers flowing, where are they going?
What’s left when it’s gone?

Illuminate the system
Illuminate the earth
It’s time to take action
‘Cause it can’t get much worse

Illuminate your spirit
Illuminate your mind
We can stand together
Illuminate what made us blind

Well you can’t keep me down, I’m always gonna be around
I got my own set of rules and my own kind of cool, yeah
Why can’t everybody get off of my back?
Momma said there’d be wars to fight like that
If I’m being my own individual

And I don’t want to be part of your rat race!

In my world I’m the kind of girl
Who sees nothing bad in everything changing

What am I not giving you? 
What do you expect me to?
I’ve got my own life to lead
, I don’t care if you disagree
I’ve got a one-way ticket to insanity
But in my own opinion it’s to clarity
I don’t subscribe to your static life

And I don’t want to be part of your rat race!

In my world I’m the kind of girl
Who sees nothing bad in everything changing

In my world everything
In my world everything
In my world everything’s okay!

INTO THE LIGHT

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Angus Campbell
©2018 All Rights Reserved

Everybody’s got a soul that wants to be included
Separation is a killer when you’re feeling down
Days and nights go slow when you’ve got nobody
Conversations with a stranger in a lonely town

Step into the light
Take a chance, you’ve got nothing left to lose
Step into the light
You’re never gonna be the same

We all feel the need to belong to a heart that’s open
We all want to matter to somebody at the end of the day
We all want to belong somewhere
You belong somewhere, I belong somewhere
But a naked, real connection makes us scared

Everybody’s got a right to feel the way they’re feeling
Take flight if the situation doesn’t serve
We’ve only got one life to get it right, dig deep, reach the gift inside
But a naked, bare connection makes us scared

Step into the light
Take a chance, you’ve got nothing left to lose
Step into the light
You’re never gonna be the same

We all feel the need to belong to a heart that’s open
We all want to matter to somebody at the end of the day
We all want to belong somewhere
You belong somewhere, I belong somewhere
But a naked, real connection makes us scared

(Step into the light)
I get how you’re feeling, it’s a long way back, I know
To come in from the cold
(Step into the light)
But don’t waste another moment doing yourself down
You’re the one you’ve been waiting for
We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for

We all feel the need to belong to a heart that’s open
We all want to matter to somebody at the end of the day
We all want to belong somewhere
You belong somewhere, I belong somewhere
But a naked, real connection makes us scared

INTO THIS – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

Cyanide, now the time has come to
Go, discard the things that you hold onto
Nitrogen, you’re feeling under pressure now
But you brought it on yourself

You believe you’re innocent
Don’t understand why all these things hit you the way they do
Oh no, of course it’s not because you’re down
In a pit of hypocrisy

I don’t know if you want to get into this
But if you’re gonna get into this
I’m never gonna back down

Lithium can only do so much to keep you grounded
Even though you want to be the New Messiah
Come to save us now
But God’s not in you

When you gonna see that your delusion
Is the cause of permanent confusion?
All consuming fire, watch the flames burn down
To the root of your hell

I don’t know if you want to get into this
But if you’re gonna get into this
I’m never gonna back down

How to fight a creature with no conscience?
A person does not deserve this
Take me off your game – I want to believe it’s all the same
Take me off your team – I want to believe, but I don’t

I don’t know if you want to get into this
But if you’re gonna get into this
I’m never gonna back down
I don’t know if you want to get into this

ISLAND – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

I’m stuck on an island and I can barely swim
I didn’t design it, but I’m complicit
I let it suck out my centre, I watch as it takes the best of me
My soul doesn’t want to die
But I don’t want to live like this any more

I don’t want to die, but I don’t want to live
If things stay the same
’Cause I’m all out of fucks to give
I’ve been fed a lie, I quit!
Haven’t I suffered? Haven’t I suffered enough!

I just have to find it, my inner fatal femme
I’m dumb and I’m blinded, yeah, I’m conflicted
I let you make me feel less than a nothing
And now I’m sick of it
My soul doesn’t want to die
But I don’t want to live like this any more

I don’t want to die, but I don’t want to live
If things stay the same
’Cause I’m all out of fucks to give
I’ve been fed a lie, I quit!
Haven’t I suffered? Haven’t I suffered enough!

I’m sick to death of the hurt and the pain
Deep in the ground, I buried my shame
I’m over the shit, ’cause I’ve done my time
So, why are you keeping me locked up inside?
All of the bleakness, the black, the despair
Why you got me stuck down here?
Consuming the fires of my rage
And soon I will escape!

There’s gotta be more than this!
With this Resurrection, Divine Intervention will
Keep me in Grace!

I don’t want to die, but I don’t want to live
If things stay the same
’Cause I’m all out of fucks to give
I’ve been fed a lie, I quit!
Haven’t I suffered? Haven’t I suffered enough!

I’m awakened, I’m waking up
They try to fake me that I’m not enough
Forsaken, and I’m done
Haven’t I suffered? Haven’t I suffered enough!

IT’S NOT OVER YET – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2010 All Rights Reserved

Lately I’m feeling that everything’s changing,
‘Cause I’ve found my consciousness
I want to believe that there’s more to existence
Than what looks to be a mess
People are running around like there’s nothing
To live for, just hedonists
They got no one to turn to, there’s me and there’s you
You get what I’m trying to stress

It’s not over yet, I’m still singing
Yeah, we’re free to elevate our energy
Instead, I’m still singing
Yeah, we’ll be changing this reality

I’m sensing a difference, there’s something about you
You’re not like the other set
It’s been such a long time since I made a connection
That wasn’t just based on sex
I knew that everything wasn’t reality,
I hadn’t met you yet
But now that you’re here, I can make myself clear
And I want you to place your bet

It’s not over yet, I’m still singing
Yeah, we’re free to elevate our energy
Instead, I’m still singing
Yeah, we’ll be changing this reality

Can you hold me, see the things that I see
To infinity – everything that I’ll be?
Like it, love it, if you’re gonna live it
Together, there’ll be no limit
Shades of grey, they’re living on the pale end
Backed into the corner of a feeling
Everyone’s been hemmed into a playpen
Together – this is love!

JENNY – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1996 All Rights Reserved

You were like a butterfly lasting not long
The colour of your eyes I can’t describe now you’re gone
You lived in the attic with all of your songs
They were the company you kept

You were only seventeen
When you became his Beauty Queen
And I watched you on my TV screen
I was destined to be you, destined to be

You couldn’t help that you ran out of air
It isn’t fair that someone took the shine from your hair
You wandered alone with your memories of love
It was a long time ago

You were only seventeen
When you became his Autumn Queen
And I touched your skin, it felt like me
I was destined to be you, destined to be

And when you smiled, it was distant
You could have been remembering
What might have been in some other world
And deep in your eyes I can see all your pain
You wouldn’t let fall down your face
To see him happy, but it doesn’t make you happy

We could have been someone special, you know
The trouble was, we never could have learned to let go
And somebody stole all the light from our lives
We used to burn bright

We were only seventeen
When we were made to kill our Queen
And our paths they were so serpentine
I was destined to be you, destined to be

But Jenny you failed me
You told me that things would be fine someday
Jenny, you opened yourself up to the
Pain that they made, then they blew you away
And you will be waiting for when I get there
Yes you will be waiting for when I get there

And when you smiled, it was distant
You could have been remembering
What might have been in some other world
And deep in your eyes I can see all your pain
You wouldn’t let fall down your face
To see him happy, but it doesn’t make you happy

And when you cried, it was poignant
You could have been imagining
The happiness just out of your reach
And deep in your eyes I can see all my pain
‘Cause Jenny, we’re one and the same

JUST AN ILLUSION – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2020 All Rights Reserved

I see you’re resigned to your fate again
‘Cause they’ve got you feeling this way
They’ll have you believing, those evil men
You’re helpless and can’t ever change

But listen up, don’t lose heart
You’ve had the power all along
I said, Listen up, don’t lose heart
You’ve got the power

This is not your life
This is just an illusion
This is not your life

They’re redesigning your faith again
Telling you how you should pray
Petition the gods of money, war, acquisition and power
Trying to get you to fail

But listen up, don’t lose heart
You’ve had the power all along
I said, Listen up, don’t lose heart
You’ve got the power

This is not your life
This is just an illusion
This is not your life

Your spirit can’t be harnessed if you
Realise it’s all a game
They’re changing the rules every day
Don’t take part, say, “No more cheating and
Denying my faith in the human race
We’re the ones that’ll get away
We’re okay

This is not your life
This is just an illusion
This is not your life

LEAN ON ME – EARL TUTU & JOHN KHAN feat. EMMA DIVA

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2013 All Rights Reserved

Don’t give up!

There was a time, I remember
When everything felt on top of me
But I kept my faith I kept believing
And life is getting better now I see

Miracles truly happen, I want you to know
Just keep it real
‘Cause the way has to be purest love
So don’t give up, let me tell you

Baby, you can lean on
You can lean on me
And if you ever need hope
You will see

I know how it feels, yeah
When your soul is tired, you lose control
I promise you things will change, yeah
But first you gotta use your heart and soul

Miracles truly happen, I want you to know
Just keep it real
‘Cause the way has to be purest love
So don’t give up, let me tell you

Baby, you can lean on
You can lean on me
And if you ever need hope
You will see

Don’t give up!

LET GO – PMF

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Listen up, don’t fear the pain
Loosen up, we’ll be okay again
Pick it up and don’t give in
Pack it up, this weight you’re carrying

Take it to the rocks
Smash it up and drop it off, my friend

Don’t hold it in – Let go
Feel the way you feel and then
Face the darkness, let the brilliance in
Your responsibility
Is to be the one you came to be

Get out of your head
Get into your heart instead, my friend

Don’t hold it in – Let go

Change your Fate, it’s not too late
Bridges burned, lessons learned

Get out of your head
Get into your heart instead, my friend

Don’t hold it in – Let go
Don’t hold it in – Let go

Don’t you look back while the bridges are burning
You’ll falter, you’ll fall, but the world keeps on turning
You feel like you’ll break but the truth is you’ll bend
And there’s only one way out of this Hell, my friend
You’re frozen in time, like a sculpture in ice
But you’d better think twice, ‘cause time’s not on your side
A bride in a marriage between truth and lies
A role that you played with too many goodbyes
Too many goodbyes

LET THE MUSIC – ANTONELLO FERRARI feat. EMMA DIVA

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney, Music by Antonello Ferrari
©2019 All Rights Reserved

We’ve got to lift up the world! Just put your hands together!

God knows when we’re going to stop pretending
That everything’s the way it should be
Look inside, my friend, how does it feel?
Does your heart beat the same as the ones who rearrange reality?

We’ve got to lift up the world, let’s get it together
‘Cause you know that time ain’t on our side
So let’s lift up the love tonight!

Let the music take you, let it take control
Melody can bleed into your heart, into your soul
Let the music take you where you want to go
Anything can happen if you give up what you know

Hoping that the circumstance is changing
Don’t you think it’s time that we’re free?
Deep inside, my friend, something ain’t right
Do you know what you know?
Is it simply what you’re told you’ve got to be?

We’ve got to lift up the world, let’s get it together
‘Cause you know that time ain’t on our side
So let’s lift up the love tonight!

Let the music take you, let it take control
Melody can bleed into your heart, into your soul
Let the music take you where you want to go
Anything can happen if you give up what you know

Let it take control, let the music take you home!
Let’s get it together
We’ve all got to be free!

‘Cause we’ve all got a responsibility to be the very best that we can – it’s written in our destiny!

We’ve all got to be, we’ve got to be free
It’s written in our destiny
Let the music take you home – where you want to go!
Let it take control

LIKE THAT – TORREY MERCER

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney and Torrey Mercer
©2019 All Rights Reserved

You’re the girl that I had to know
Met you first at one of my shows
Then I saw you everywhere I’d go
So now, we’re just the best of friends
And I’d never want to ruin that
You give me feelings that I can’t ignore

I don’t know if this is love
I don’t know if this lust
I just want to go for bust
I’m scared you’ll say

Why are you looking at me like that
I don’t want to ruin this thing we have
Pushing me away would make me feel so bad
But I’ve gotta say
When you’re looking at me like that
You make me want to risk it all, don’t make me sad
You’ll give the sweetest kisses or you’ll get me so mad
And that would be the end of us, yeah

This thing we have, it’s one of a kind
I want to tell you that you look so fine
Make you feel the way I feel inside
But I don’t know if I’ll get you mad
If you lean this way or lean like that
You give me signals that I can’t read well

I don’t know if this is love
I don’t know if this lust
I just want to go for bust
I’m scared you’ll say

Why are you looking at me like that
I don’t want to ruin this thing we have
Pushing me away would make me feel so bad
But I’ve gotta say
When you’re looking at me like that
You make me want to risk it all, don’t make me sad
You’ll give the sweetest kisses or you’ll get me so mad
And that would be the end of us, yeah

LIVE LIFE – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2011 All Rights Reserved

I see the party’s here, and I wanna let my hair down
I wanna disappear into this crowd
Here tonight, I feel so high, I come alive

Out on the dance floor, I throw my hands in the air
And when the DJ plays, I could be anywhere
Oh, the music and the melody, yeah, the music

Live life – If it’s just a game
Love life – Don’t miss your turn
Live life – You can take me on
Love life – As you find me, as you find me

I wanna feel the way lucky people feel
I wanna live today like nothing is real
Here tonight, I feel so high, I come alive

Existing day to day, just like a cold machine
But now I’m out to play, I’m gonna live my dream
Of the music and the melody, yeah, the music

Live life – If it’s just a game
Love life – Don’t miss your turn
Live life – You can take me on
Love life – As you find me, as you find me

I don’t believe in love, the way the others do
It’s never been enough, for me and you
But here tonight, I feel so high, I come alive
It’s never easy, mm, life can be so tough
If you hear what I’m saying, c’mon, put your hands up
For the music, and the melody, yeah, the music

Live life – If it’s just a game
Love life – Don’t miss your turn
Live life – You can take me on
Love life – As you find me, as you find me

LOOKING GLASS PEOPLE

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2004 All Rights Reserved

All the looking-glass people
Hear them scream in a whisper
Do they really believe that the sky isn’t falling in?
You’re not the same, I wanted to leave you pleased
Bleeding from the picture frame
Weak at the knees, you have to believe

All the looking-glass people
Spilling out of the theatre house
Do they really not see that the show has just begun?
You’re not the same – you burn like an amber flame
I won’t paint the roses red today
You’ve opened my eyes…that I can see

And it doesn’t really matter about the rain
‘Cause when we get home, we get dry again
Down the rabbit hole I slowly fall past orange marmalade
My beamish boy keeps coming back
I’ll make it to the eighth

All the looking-glass people become a little complacent
Become a little reserved, never reaching for their dreams
You’re not the same; I wanted to breathe you in
Wanted you to inspire me
Weak at the knees, you have to believe

So take your looking glass away
Take the blindfold from my face
I don’t know if I’ll break but I’ll leap anyway
Take your looking glass away
‘Cause I want to see your face before I make the break

MAKE BANK – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2020 All Rights Reserved

It gets so hard, working for the money
I gotta make ends meet, a girl’s got to eat
Every day and night, I bust a hump, yeah
But something always comes along
To knock me off my feet!

You know what I’m talking about
Money, money! Money, money, money!
You know what I’m talking about
Let’s push a little harder, bring the whole thing down

I’ve gotta make bank!

Pushing hard, reaching for the dream, yeah
I gotta make it count, that’s what it’s all about
I know there’s more to life, somewhere out there
I’m gonna sing a different song when I’m back on my feet

You know what I’m talking about
Money, money! Money, money, money!
You know what I’m talking about
Let’s push a little harder, bring the whole thing down

I’ve gotta make bank!

That’s right! I’m working day and night!
I gotta put this right!

I want to party! But I’ve got to work!
I want to see my friends! But I’ve got to work!
I want to call my man! But I’ve got to work!
I want to sleep! But I’ve got to work!

I’ve gotta make bank!

MANDOLIN – DREAM SOUND MASTERS FEAT. EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Dream Sound Masters
©2019 All Rights Reserved

In a cabin on a beach, music filtered in
I could see him playing on a mandolin
So I walked across the sand, I wanted to ask his name
But I decided that I would refrain

Peaceful concentration lined upon his face
With his music in another place
Years of inspiration, he was somewhere else
I let the music take me there to know myself

We’re in the theatre of the absurd
But music brings us all together without words
We don’t need language to feel we’re heard
Inside each one of us, we’ve got the Universe

I’m reminded of a world I used to venture in
When I hear music on a mandolin
The ones I left behind, the one I used to be
But there is so much more inside of me

Tears of dedication, blurred words on the page
‘Cause I never will forget that place
But all these affirmations tell me that it’s time
To go on with my life and leave the past behind

We’re in the theatre of the absurd
But music brings us all together without words
We don’t need language to feel we’re heard
Inside each one of us, we’ve got the Universe

MY FACE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2017 All Rights Reserved

All the things I couldn’t say to make me feel myself again
And all the things I wanted to say when I was next to you

Now I’m over, out, shadows set with doubt
Pieces of a puzzle that I don’t recall
Have you seen my ghost, the one that I fear most?
Bitter man, it’s been so long since I went home

I’ll take off my face and then I’ll replace it, oh
Don’t have time to waste, I can almost taste it, oh

Promises I never said, God knows I’m my only friend
And I know all the bad I do won’t ever get me next to you

Now I’m over, out, shadows set with doubt
Pieces of a puzzle that I don’t recall
Have you seen my ghost, the one that I fear most?
Bitter man, it’s been so long since I went home

I’ll take off my face and then I’ll replace it, oh
Don’t have time to waste, I can almost taste it, oh
I’ll take off my face and then I’ll replace it, oh
I know that I’m a fake, but I can almost taste it, oh

Now I’m all burned out, I’ve got to fix this now
I’ve got myself to blame, got myself to blame

MY LOVE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2017 All Rights Reserved

You promised to change a little too late
I’ve heard it before anyway
This is the end of the life that we made
You say I can’t believe the things that I see
Keep twisting my reality
I don’t know how, but I’ll find a way out

My love, it faded, ’cause your love, it crossed the line
I know it’s over and God knows how hard I tried
I won’t forgive you, but I will forget in time
Maybe my heart will heal

These are my eyes, you made me blind
You cut off my air supply
You’ve taken it all, well-played from the stalls
With every smile, you planned my demise
Behind my back, and I wasn’t prepared
When you left me to die

My love, it faded, ’cause your love, it crossed the line
I know it’s over and God knows how hard I tried
I won’t forgive you, but I will forget in time
Maybe my heart will heal

But it’s not like I’m waiting
I don’t expect for a hole that is blown out
To fill up immediately
I know that life will be hell for a time
But I know that things will get better for me
I’ll celebrate the small victories
I know that one day, I will be free

My love, it faded, ’cause your love, it crossed the line
Thank God it’s over, ’cause God knows how hard I tried
I won’t forgive you, but I will forget in time
Maybe my heart will heal…

MYSTERY UNRAVELLING – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1995 All Rights Reserved

She asked her Love: 
What if I bleed right on your feet?
What if I laugh inappropriately?
What if I dance down in the South?
What if I close my mouth?

I’m a little crazy, I’m a little sad
And I’m a little angry
You don’t know me, you don’t know me well

And the Psycho said: “It’s in my head”
The record store keeps playing something
I can’t remember and I can’t forget
It’s a mystery unravelling

Just another moment to keep
But is it authentic to what they believe?
She reaches a hand, but he turns away
Won’t hear a word she’ll say

And she’s a little crazy, she’s getting mad
She’s empty
“You don’t know me, you don’t know me well”

And the Psycho said: “It’s in my head”
The record store keeps playing something
I can’t remember and I can’t forget
It’s a mystery unravelling, unravelling…

How much more must they keep pointing fingers?
I don’t think that she can play if her hands are broken
Could she even reach those sparkling ivories?
And did you think that any good
Could come of breaking the seals?
Galloping horsemen in armour of steel
Carry her away, carry her today

And the Psycho said: “It’s in my head”
The record store keeps playing something I can’t remember

NEVER ENOUGH – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

I’m open to the main attraction – what part do you play?
I’m waitin’, still there’s no reaction from you
You’re dead as a doornail
Frustration – my default setting!
Complication! Who knows where I’ve been
In my mind? I try to fit in but you never give in!

I don’t got big titties to sell myself
I don’t got a vacation in your bed
It doesn’t matter what I do
‘Cause I’ll never be enough for you!
I don’t have a disease to state my case
I don’t have a politic or race, yeah, I’m feelin’ somethin’ else!

I could split myself in two like a hole blown out
It don’t matter, ’cause I’m never enough
I’m never enough, I’m never!
I could hold on to you, nahaaaaaooooow-ooh!! Uh!
You know it’s never enough, I’m never enough, I’m never!

I’m feeling like I’m in a freak show – why are you staring?
It’s all these little things remind me
I don’t ever want to be anything like you
Frustration – my default setting! Complication!
Who knows where I’ve been
In my mind? I try to fit in but you never give in!

I don’t got extensions from my head
I don’t got a fake tan turning red
Ain’t gonna change the way I am to be suitin’ you
I don’t have a disease to state my case
I don’t have a politic or race, yeah, I’m feelin’ somethin’ else!

I could split myself in two, get my heart blown out
It don’t matter, ’cause I’m never enough
I’m never enough, I’m never!
I could hold on to you, nahaaaaaooooow-ooh!! Uh!
You know it’s never enough, I’m never enough, I’m never!

I don’t have an opinion about your
Soap opera family conundrum
Small-minded, offensive people
Damn, your life must be humdrum
I don’t have a disease to state my case
I don’t have a politic or race
Yeah, I’m feelin’ somethin’ else!

I could sell myself to you, like a whore gone bad
It don’t matter, ’cause I’m never enough
I’m never enough, I’m never!
I could hold on to you, nahaaaaaooooow-ooh!! Uh!
You know it’s never enough, I’m never enough, I’m never!

I could split myself in two, get my heart blown out
It don’t matter, ’cause I’m never enough
I’m never enough, I’m never!
I could hold on to you, nahaaaaaooooow-ooh!! Uh!
You know it’s never enough, I’m never enough, I’m never!

NOT YOUR WHORE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

I don’t know what goes on inside your mind
You say what you think I want to hear
It doesn’t mean anything
You can’t deny, so asinine
So hypocritical! “Too critical!” said I

You’re not the same, someone to blame? You’re the one
Giving me up for the one who deserted you when you were
Opening up, taking a chance riding love
Then she screwed you up – You tried to do that to me

But I’m not your wet nurse and I’m not your whore
And I’m not your consolation prize any more
Never again can I be that understanding friend
Who gives herself to you, it’s never-ending!

I try not to let the rage burn deep inside
But it gets hard when I’m so sick of all your pathetic lies
I knew I was right! I ask myself why
Did I get so knotted up in the mess you call your life?

Boy, you’re so lame…if you’re going to lie, do it well
You should be ashamed; it’s so evident, your transparency
Got to reclaim the peace in my mind I once felt
Before you dispelled it – Stop coming after me

You were the one, the one that I thought I could trust
But I was wrong…it was all an illusion created
Now you don’t belong, so why are you still calling me up?
Hey, don’t make a fuss – You lied and mishandled me

ON YOUR SIDE – PMF

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Separate again, I’ll break the hold you’ve had on me
Sweepstake, I win
Liquidate the contract that you’ve taken out on me

I’ll make you suffer! For the win, for the opportunity
For the chance to take back everything you took from me
Suffer! Drink it up, drink your medicine
Don’t give out what you cannot receive

You move to begin, I see you watching
And I’m taking it in my stride
You think I know nothing at all
That I don’t know nothing at all, but I know
I’m not even on your side

(And now I’m breaking, oh, and now I’m breaking
And now I’m breaking, I’m breaking free)
Now I’m breaking, now I’m breaking free!
(And now I’m breaking, oh, and now I’m breaking
And now I’m breaking, I’m breaking free)
With this groundbreaking move you could not foresee

I’ll sedate you then I will escape the prison that you
Held me in
Amputate the arms that held me back from being free – And then –

You move to begin, I see you watching
And I’m taking it in my stride
You think I know nothing at all
That I don’t know nothing at all, but I know
I’m not even on your side

So don’t tell me what to believe
‘Cause I’m not even on your side
The only side I’m on is mine
So don’t tell me what to believe
I’m on again, oh oh
The only side I’m on is mine!

ONE OF A KIND – PMF

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

I’m one of a kind
You could never replicate me
You can’t even imitate me
I’m the only one they rolled off of this line
Find another one to drive a stake in
‘Cause I’m not here for the taking
I’m chameleon, I’m changing

I’m the one, the original
The incomparable one
We are not the same
I don’t need you to fill me up
I’m already overflowing from my cup

Now I know I, I used to believe in nothing
And now I know I, I need to believe in me – not you!

I’m one of a kind
Broke the chisel when they made me
You can’t even get a fake me
I’m the only one they rolled off of this line
I’m living life, I’m animated
In technicolour, decorated, my supervision elevated

I’m the one, the original
The incomparable one
We are not the same
I don’t need you to fill me up
I’m already overflowing from my cup

Now I know I, I used to believe in nothing
And now I know I, I need to believe in me – not you!
Now I know I, I need to believe in me – not you!

PROMETHEUS – CREEON

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2021 All Rights Reserved

Liberation of Mankind
It’s a conversation we left behind
Work hard to fulfil our dreams
But life in a cage is a rat race I don’t want to be in

Death! Suffering! We’re the ones to blame
We let it happen, we should hang our heads in shame!

No, I don’t know if I’ll be back again
So don’t wait up, just pray, my friend
No, I don’t know if I’ll be back again
But I know that this is not the end

Degradation of the mind
It’s a human condition, a parasite
This creature made of clay
I don’t know its name and I don’t even recognise it

Reality, it’s a twisted game!
We let it happen, we can never be the same!

No, I don’t know if I’ll be back again
So don’t wait up, just pray, my friend
No, I don’t know if I’ll be back again
But I know that this is not the end

PROMISE YOU – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

What’s wrong now? Tell me what you’re feeling
‘Cause I can’t stand how you bottle it inside
And I know that, that you don’t believe in
Anything, anything, anything at all
But I will try to, try to convince you
Life doesn’t have to be like that
No, it doesn’t have to be like that, yeah, I promise you

Why so sad? You’ve got a friend in me now
As I told you, I’ll be there for you tonight
And I know that, that you don’t believe me
I guess I don’t always get it right
But I will try to, try to convince you
Life doesn’t have to be like that
No, it doesn’t have to be like that, yeah, I promise you

Remember when I said:
“Even though a lot of time could pass
And you’re behaving like an ass, I’ll be your friend, I’ll be there for you.”
How we laughed at all the (My)spaces with a shrine to all
Your videos and alcohol
I’ll be your friend, I’ll be there for you

What’s wrong now? Tell me what you’re feeling
‘Cause I can’t stand how you bottle it inside
And I know that, that you don’t believe in
Anything, anything, anything at all
But I will try to, try to convince you that life doesn’t have to be like that
No, it doesn’t have to be like that, Yeah, I promise you

Remember when I said:
“Even though a lot of time could pass
And you’re behaving like an ass, I’ll be your friend, I’ll be there for you.”
How we laughed at all the (My)spaces with a shrine to all
Your videos and alcohol
I’ll be your friend, I’ll be there for you

Townsend, Pan and Ustinov – it’s crazy how we hit it off
But now it’s getting kinda hard to
Be your friend and be there for you
You should consider how I keep my counsel even now
Despite the love you give her she won’t care
And she won’t be there for you

What’s wrong now? Tell me what you’re feeling…

QUIT PLAYING AROUND

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2018 All Rights Reserved

When we started out, the world was at our feet
You held my hand and you could be so sweet
But now I call, you don’t pick up your phone
That’s one more night I’m gonna sleep alone

You say it’s in my mind, you must think I’m blind
Not a second time, I’ll leave, I’ll leave, girl
And now I see the signs, we can’t press rewind
I won’t waste my life – quit playing around

I’m a faithful guy, I need a woman who can hold me tight
To give my love to every night
I believed her, I believed her
Now I realize she’s making out with another guy
It’s too late to give this love another try
She’s playing around on me

(I think) It’s time to let go
(I know) It’s time to let go

I asked you straight if you’ve been stepping wide
But you can’t even look me in the eye
Your story’s lame, but I still believed
I guess you could say that the joke’s on me

You say it’s in my mind, you must think I’m blind
Not a second time, I’ll leave, I’ll leave, girl
And now I see the signs, we can’t press rewind
I won’t waste my life – quit playing around

I’m a faithful guy, I need a woman who can hold me tight
To give my love to every night
I believed her, I believed her
Now I realize she’s making out with another guy
It’s too late to give this love another try
She’s playing around on me

(I think) It’s time to let go
(I know) It’s time to let go

RISE – PMF

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

This is how we all fall down in the gutter
This is how the truth comes out, when we mutter
This is how we all get stopped at the border
This is how we drown, when we’re deep in the water

This is how our eyes adjust, ’til they’re clearer
This is how we focus on our every failure
This is how we find out who’s the biggest liar
This is how we all get burned in the fire

Rise! Out of the mud
Rise! Feel the blood in your veins getting
Hotter! Just like it should
Rise! To your destiny, it’s in your blood!

This is how we know what it all really means
This is how we go when we have to leave
This is how we’ll be what we try to hide
This is how it feels when we’re finally alive 

This is how we want to be remembered for the past
This is how we act, ‘cause it’s never gonna last
This is how we fail when we choose the wrong path
This is how we’re gonna get the last damn laugh

Rise! Out of the mud
Rise! Feel the blood in your veins getting
Hotter! Just like it should
Rise! To your destiny, it’s in your blood!

ROLE MODEL – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2004 All Rights Reserved

Oh, I don’t know if I could ever be a role model
But that’s not why I’m here
You’ll see that I’ve been nourishing my soul in a moment
Opening the whole of me to focus on new life for me

And my time I feel it’s coming
Oh yeah, it’s coming over, coming over now
Coming over, coming over, easy

I know it’s worth the way I live my life on the outside
Being true to myself is right
I’m never gonna let silly people bring me down again
‘Cause I’ve still got my pride

Now I feel the weight is nearly over
I can feel it falling from my shoulder
Maybe I’m just getting older
It doesn’t matter what you think
And it doesn’t matter what you say
I know that I’ll be okay

And sometimes it felt so hard, I thought I was slipping under
Coming over, coming over now
Coming over, coming over, easy

I know it’s worth the way I live my life on the outside
Being true to myself is right
I’m never gonna let silly people bring me down again
‘Cause I’ve still got my pride

And I’ve been asking myself too many questions
Like: How? When? Where? Why did I deserve this?
Being reprimanded, the gang’s been disbanded
Did I do something wrong? No more!

I know it’s worth the way I live my life on the outside
Being true to myself is right
I’m never gonna let silly people bring me down again
‘Cause I’ve still got my pride

ROLL THE DICE – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

You got a one-track, sleazy mind
Always looking for new action
But the one thing you can’t find is
Happiness and peace of mind

You gotta give and take sometimes
‘Cause it’s not always about you
And in the old days, you could get away
With the games that don’t work for you now

‘Cause your lines are tired and you just look desperate!

Your time is up so give it to me
I’ll roll the dice and still come up three times
Head straight to jail, you’ve broken your vow
Don’t pass Go, give it up; you’re worthless now

You got a lustful, wanderin’ eye
It used to drive me to distraction
That the one thing you can’t find
Was in front of you, but you’re staring blind

Did you think I wouldn’t mind
How you put everyone above me?
Well, in the old days, you could get away
With your games, ’cause I had no sense of self
But now your lines are tired and you just look desperate!

You got a take-it-easy mind
No, you never lift a finger
And the one thing you can’t find is
Striding off into the light
It’s a pointless exercise
Trying to explain this to you
You won’t listen, you’re just missing
The games you played that don’t work for you now

(You had the time, you had the choice, you had it all)
(You gave it up, you wanted more, you want it all)
(You don’t know what you lost in me)
(You don’t pass go, you lost the game, you lost the round)
(You lost the game)
(You lost the game)
(You lost the game)

SALIMOS POR LA NOCHE – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Te invito en mi cuarto, podemos estar juntos
Este amor se siente como nada más
Si estamos separados, me sentiria tan vacia
Hagamos que este momento dure

Salimos por la noche
Buscando el paraiso
Salimos por la noche
Encontraremos el cielo

No tienes que estar solo, estoy aquí contigo
No tienes que tener miedo, te cogeré la mano
Y aunque no tengas rumbo, nos encontraremos donde quiera que estés
¿Puedes esperarme? ¿Puedes esperarme?

Salimos por la noche
Buscando el paraiso
Salimos por la noche
Encontraremos el cielo

Cuando me tocas me siento alta
Cuando me besas, me siento viva
Cuando me amas, me siento completa (repeat) 

Salimos por la noche
Buscando el paraiso
Salimos por la noche
Encontraremos el cielo

SALUTE TO THE QUEEN – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

Disappointment rush through me
Ain’t it funny how you managed to get away?
I’m alone again in dirty sheets
I bet you’re thinking: “Such an easy lay”
But you’re not the man I want – just a pale imitation of the one before
And your cheap invitation…well, it gets me off
But who made you the god of all?

Warm the ointment; calm the burn now
Ain’t it funny how we make the same mistake again?
Unreliable, self-centred
So don’t promise things you can’t deliver anyway
But you’re not the man I want – just a pale imitation of the one before
And this strange conversation…well, it sets me off
But who made you the god of all…

Passion? It’s not your friend! Passion! It’s just a weakness in the end!

And I – I’ll reach an impasse
And you – you bring the JD
And we – we’ll make a video
Line up toy soldiers, salute to the Queen!
I’ll reach an impasse
And you – you bring the JD
And we, we’ll make a video
Line up toy soldiers, salute to the Queen!

Breaking glass will cut your hands up
Ain’t it funny how I never ever miss a beat?
Wrap your hands up; dirty bandage
Darkened ink won’t be enough to wash your soul clean
But you’re not the man I want – just a pale imitation of the one before
And this weird situation…well, it gets too much
Who made you the god of all…

SANCTUARY – ANNA LUX

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Anna Lux
©2019 All Rights Reserved

He asks it, he tells it: “When is this? I miss it.”
His life, it won’t lead him to the path behind him
She’s fading each day as she disappears, working
This sadness, despondence, rings louder
Every day, the same

You scream, you cry, you touch, you feel enticed
In your Sanctuary
You burn, you fight, unmasked, you recognise
Your Sanctuary
You scream, you cry, unmasked, enticed
You touch, you feel, you’re in your Sanctuary

He’s seeking a new life, a change of direction
If he finds the Path and the Key, then he’ll bind them
She strips off, her mask on, her hair down
She sinks deep in white sheets, can’t catch sleep
Lies waiting, restless all night

You scream, you cry, you touch, you feel enticed
In your Sanctuary
You burn, you fight, unmasked, you recognise
Your Sanctuary
You scream, you cry, unmasked, enticed
You touch, you feel, you’re in your Sanctuary

Caught up in infinite rays of light
Are you lost in nothing, are you lost in the fire?
Sensory explosions, we all feel the same
Can’t lose any more, so now you must reign

You scream, you cry, you touch, you feel enticed
In your Sanctuary
You burn, you fight, unmasked, you recognise
Your Sanctuary
You scream, you cry, unmasked, enticed
You touch, you feel, you’re in your Sanctuary

SAVE ME – PMF

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Who am I fooling?

Watch me fade again: it’s my party piece
They never see me leave, but I come back again
Why can’t I hold out? I guess I’ll go insane
With no one left to blame, so I do it again

(Save me, save me, save me, then save me again)
Save me from myself again, this illusion never ends
I find it so hard to pretend I’m not losing my grip
(Save me, save me, save me) Save me from myself again
A loser in a gambling den, it’s getting too hard to pretend

I think it’s getting better
Yeah, it’s really getting better now
Who am I fooling? I’m all burned out

Guess I failed again; at least, that’s what you think
You never did believe I’d amount to anything
Where there’s love, there’s doubt; ain’t that just the way?
You left me to my fate, so I’ll come back again

(Save me, save me, save me, then save me again)
Save me from myself again, this illusion never ends
I find it so hard to pretend I’m not losing my grip
(Save me, save me, save me) Save me from myself again
A loser in a gambling den, it’s getting too hard to pretend –

Save me, save me, save me, then save me again
Save me, save me, save me, then save me again

SCREW YOU – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2017 All Rights Reserved

Look through my eyes, touch through my hands
I’m a watercolor scar
Cut off your tongue, so I know that you hurt
You know I’m not afraid of hell
‘Cause I drank with the devil before
One shot for my anger, two shots for my soul!

Now it’s eye for eye for the minds that you untied,
Worked your way through all the hearts of the
Pretty people
Screw your shit advice for someone else’s life
Your arrogant intent repels me – Screw you!

Want me to suck, but you just spit
Nothing’s good enough for you
Faceted face, I’ll be ten people too
You know I’ll not get lost in hell
‘Cause I’ve danced with the devil before
Foxtrotted out my anger, salsa-ed out my soul!

Now it’s eye for eye for the minds that you untied,
Worked your way through all the hearts of the
Pretty people
From another time, no place for you inside
Old enough to make up for your bad behaviour
Threatened by the scene where someone else has been
You’re pleasured by the pain, but I won’t leave you smiling
Screw your shit advice for someone else’s life
Your arrogant intent repels me – Screw you!

You fucked up everything, won’t take your blame
I’m not your sculpture to mould
Hoped that you’d die for me, you won’t oblige
Still, I see you’re just as cold

So what if I break – what’s all the fuss? No, I can’t forgive
Judas inside, betraying my trust
You know I’m not afraid of hell
‘Cause I’ve met with the devil before
Showing through your actions
Sweating through your pores

Now it’s eye for eye for the minds that you untied,
Worked your way through all the hearts of the
Pretty people
From another time, no place for you inside
Old enough to make up for your bad behaviour
Threatened by the scene where someone else has been
You’re pleasured by the pain, but I won’t leave you smiling
Screw your shit advice for someone else’s life
Your arrogant intent repels me – Screw you!

Screw you!

SEEN IT ALL – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2011 All Rights Reserved

Does your life amount to this?
Cheaper thrills, synthetic bliss
And I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before
When you try to chameleon, it only hides what you want
And I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before

So gimme the warmth, gimme the breeze
Gimme the air that I can breathe
Gimme the sand, give me the beach
Gimme the waves upon the sea
Gimme the night, give me the dream
Gimme the truth, not what it seems
Gimme the sun, gimme the rain
Gimme a world without a chain

All the methods that you trust, in a second turn to dust
And I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before
Our whole existence, it can change
I’m about to turn the page
‘Cause I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before

So gimme the warmth, gimme the breeze
Gimme the air that I can breathe
Gimme the sand, give me the beach
Gimme the waves upon the sea
Gimme the night, give me the dream
Gimme the truth, not what it seems
Gimme the sun, gimme the rain
Gimme a world without a chain

Hearing I’m the one you name, whatever, I’ll take the blame
‘Cause I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before
Roll the dice, place your bet, but you haven’t beat me yet
‘Cause I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before

So gimme the warmth, gimme the breeze
Gimme the air that I can breathe
Gimme the sand, give me the beach
Gimme the waves upon the sea
Gimme the night, give me the dream
Gimme the truth, not what it seems
Gimme the sun, gimme the rain
Gimme a world without a chain

(Our whole existence, it can change, everything rearranged
And I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before)

SISTERHOOD – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2018 All Rights Reserved

Am I supposed to feel ashamed and
Am I supposed to take the blame for speaking my mind
If it’s not what you like?
Am I supposed to wait a while for
Someone else to run my life?
What’s a girl to do if she doesn’t need a man like you do?

I get no support from you – you just say I’m a diva
Do I offend you or do I make you feel that bit more inferior?
Well, that’s your problem

Sorry I don’t belong, sorry I don’t fit in
Sorry I don’t wait around for something to happen
Sorry I’m taking charge, sorry I’m confident
Sorry that I break the rules of the sisterhood

Am I supposed to need your help and
Am I supposed to blame myself if you can’t sing?
Well, it’s just one of those things
And do I measure my behaviour by
The standards I didn’t place inside
It doesn’t make me satisfied!

I get no support from you; you just say I’m a diva
Do I offend you or do I make you feel that bit more inferior?
Well, that’s your problem

Sorry I don’t belong, sorry I don’t fit in
Sorry I don’t wait around for something to happen
Sorry I’m taking charge, sorry I’m confident
Sorry that I break the rules of the sisterhood

No I don’t believe in feeling guilty that I exist
I’m living each day exactly how I wish
Cos I know exactly what I want
Yeah, I know exactly what I want
I’m breaking all the rules

Sorry I don’t belong, sorry I don’t fit in
Sorry I don’t wait around for something to happen
Sorry I’m taking charge, sorry I’m confident
Sorry that I break the rules of the sisterhood

STAND UP – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

I know there are times you don’t feel confident
When people say bad things to make you feel small
Pay no attention to their small-minded ways
‘Cause there will be brighter days
And life will save the best for you

So take back your strength and your power
This is your finest hour – together, we can rise up!
Come on and join in the fun, the party’s just begun
Let me hear you sing!

Stand up! Let me hear you sing!

Now is the time for you to spread your wings
And do the kind of things that put a smile in your heart
That’s right, now baby, yeah, you’re finding your groove
Come on, get ready to move
The whole world’s waiting for you

So take back your strength and your power
This is your finest hour – together, we can rise up!
Come on and join in the fun, the party’s just begun
Let me hear you sing!

Stand up, be proud!
Walk tall, get loud!
I love who you are
So be the best you can be, ’cause you’re a shining star!

You’ve got to live your life!
Yeah, you’ve got to be free!

I’M BROKEN

Lyrics by Emma Christensson & Emma L.M. Sweeney

©2017 All Rights Reserved

I’m broken, I’m broken to pieces
I’m scattered, scattered all across the floor
Just ‘cause I adored you

You’ve broken my heart
Tearing me apart

I’m broken, I’m broken inside
My feelings, trying to hide
You chose me but you broke me

You’ve broken my heart
Tearing me apart

What have I got to do just to be with you?
Be with you, be with you
What’ve I got to do, if I want to stay with you?
Stay with you, stay with you

I’m broken, I’m broken to pieces
I’m scattered, scattered all across the floor
Just ‘cause I adored you

I don’t understand why you make me cry
When all you did was leave me in pieces

What’ve I got to do just to be with you?
Be with you, be with you
What’ve I got to do, if I want to stay with you?
Stay with you, stay with you

What have I got to do?

SUGAR SWEET

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Angus Campbell
©2018 All Rights Reserved

Some people, well, they’re right to say I treated you badly
I couldn’t even argue they’re wrong
I’ve been living my life looking out for myself
Never cared how you might feel
My attention was everywhere
But where it should have been

I know now, but it’s too late, it’s too late

So if you want to go, I can’t make you stay
We both know I don’t deserve you anyway
So I’m letting you go, though I want you to stay
Your sugar is sweet, I hope that you meet
A better man than me

Nobody got the right to say that I don’t love you madly
But I guess I can see just how it looks, yeah
Spend the rest of my life regretting that
I never said I love you
You’re the last one to know, I’m releasing my hold
I’m setting you free, yeah

I know now, it’s too late

So if you want to go, I can’t make you stay
We both know I don’t deserve you anyway
So I’m letting you go, though I want you to stay
Your sugar is sweet, I hope that you meet
A better man than me

I wish you knew all the things that I can’t say
And I swear, I promise I’ll be back for you someday
I’m crossing my heart, though it’s beat up and broken
If I were a better man, I’d tell you not to leave

I know now, but it’s too late, it’s too late

So if you want to go, I can’t make you stay
We both know I don’t deserve you anyway
So I’m letting you go, though I want you to stay
Your sugar is sweet, I hope that you meet
A better man than me

You know you’re my world
Your sugar is sweet, girl

Sunshine, yeah
Come on, give me some of that sunshine, baby

Sunshine! Break into my heart

I spent so many years living my life in the darkness
I’ve cried so many tears, needed help from above
But there came a time when I’d had enough of the madness
I want a life that’s sublime
Yeah, I want to be free – it’s time

Sunshine! Break into my heart

I see it so clear, no more despair in the darkness
I’ve got to move on and turn my life around
Now is the time, ’cause I’ve had enough of the sadness
I want a life that is mine
Yeah, I’m gonna be free – it’s time

Sunshine! Break into my heart

No more – no more sadness in my heart
No more – no more bitterness, bad energy
No more – I’ve got a chance to turn my world around and Make it real, yeah
No more pain, no more pain, no more living life in vain
It’s a new beginning
No more rain, no more rain
Yeah, I’m gonna let the stormclouds melt away

Sunshine! Break into my heart
Gonna get that sunshine in my heart!

SUPERHERO

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1996 All Rights Reserved

You opened up your mouth
But I can’t hear, there’s no words coming out
You fixed yourself a drink and offered me nothing

You ask me where I’m from
But I can’t say, I’ve been away too long
Words, they sound the same
But meanings seem to change

And you’re so terribly beautiful

You’re the one, my pick-me-up, my classic superhero
So fly me away to another place
To a land where I don’t need the sun
Give it up, ‘cause you’ve had too much
You don’t need to taste from that cup
Oooh, do you see the light above?

It’s in my chemistry
It’s hard to say the things I really mean
The thing I want too much, I’m too scared to touch

So, what’s it all about?
You’re standing at your window, looking out
You ask me who I am, I’m all I have to be

And you’re so terribly beautiful

You’re the one, my pick-me-up, my classic superhero
So fly me away to another place
To a land where I don’t need the sun
Give it up, ‘cause you’ve had too much
You don’t need to taste from that cup
Oooh, do you see the light above?

Have you ever had something for nothing?
Then given it all away, thinking that is something good?
Have you ever had your own superhero?
Did you never learn a thing from anyone?
Superhero
Superhero

You’re the one, my pick-me-up, my classic superhero
So fly me away to another place
To a land where I don’t need the sun
Give it up, ‘cause you’ve had too much
You don’t need to taste from that cup
Oooh, do you see the light above?

SWALLOW – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2011 All Rights Reserved

Looking-glass people with black eyes
Despair of the way that I want to be
Anyone can see that I’m only trying to be myself again
But yesterday told me that I wasn’t perfect
That I’m not enough for someone like you and your crew
I’m the fool who sits and bleeds and waits for you…

To feed me a morsel, drop me a breadcrumb or two
As if it could keep me from eating my insides

Just get away from me!
Don’t touch my skin, ’cause I’m hollow
From all the pain – you’re a bitter pill to swallow
Just get away from me! I’ll be a good girl tomorrow
But today, I’ll go insane – I’m a bitter pill to swallow.

I laugh it all off, but sometimes
These secrets wanna break out of my head
What you gave to me was a burden I didn’t deserve, yeah
And yesterday told me that I was just useful
For when you wanted to offload your pain
And your problems
You never reciprocated my love for you

I’m a ghost in your house
I’m a thought without a consequence
No one explaining these things, now you’re absent

Just get away from me!
Don’t touch my skin, ’cause I’m hollow
From all the pain – you’re a bitter pill to swallow
Just get away from me! I’ll be a good girl tomorrow
But today, I’ll go insane – I’m a bitter pill to swallow

SWEET DECAY – CREEON

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2019 All Rights Reserved

I wanted to feel the thrill of glory
I wanted to get back on my game
I wanted so bad to be the hero
I started to forget your name

Now I’ll rearrange what was left undone
I know that I’m to blame, ’cause I fucked it up

What do I do without you, who am I trying to save?
Telling the same old story, ’cause I’ve got too much to say
What do I feel without you, what is this taste I crave?
Telling the same damn story and it’s carved in sweet decay

I wanted to be The Second Coming
I wanted to take on all the praise
I wanted to be the lucky one
I wanted to win, for a change

Now I’ll rearrange what was left undone
I know that I’m to blame, ’cause I fucked it up

What do I do without you, who am I trying to save?
Telling the same old story, ’cause I’ve got too much to say
What do I feel without you, what is this taste I crave?
Telling the same damn story and it’s carved in sweet decay

Carved in sweet decay! And it’s carved in sweet decay!

TAKE CARE – CREEON

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2019 All Rights Reserved

The only time I feel alive is when I’m here with you

Your heart’s wide open, but I’m too broken
To accept loves token, I’m just a joke and
I hate to say it, but I’m defective
If you stick with me, you are bound to lose

The only time I feel alive is when I’m here with you
But deep inside, I know that I’m not good enough for you

I’ve failed, I’ve fallen, you heard me calling
Just say the word and I’ll come back crawling
But you’re safer somewhere that I’m not, so take care
You’ll find another heart that beats and bleeds for you

The only time I feel alive is when I’m here with you
But deep inside, I know that I’m not good enough for you
So take care, I won’t forget the memory of your smile
It’s better if I leave before I tangle you up in my life

To keep you safe, I’ll stay away
I’ve got a place for all my pain
If I knew love, I’d give you mine
But it’s not in this heart – I tried

The only time I feel alive is when I’m here with you
But deep inside, I know that I’m not good enough for you
So take care, I won’t forget the memory of your smile
It’s better if I leave before I tangle you up in my life

TAKEN IN – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2010 All Rights Reserved

My secret, my best friend, my honey
Paint me green again
My soul twin, my moonlight, my confidante is gone
I never got the chance to save you from the demon blood
Who stole the golden discus
Like a sun pulled from the sky to dusk

They’ve been taken in – well, take away my pain
Take away my rage – Let justice prevail
So hail and farewell, kick it in the rear for me
I know who should feel guilty. And I rage. I ache.

My sight and my music, my translator
Paint me green again
My angel, my great ape, my partner-in-crime is gone
I never got the chance to make it like it used be
If time is like a boomerang, it’ll send you flying back to me

They’ve been taken in – well, take away my pain
Take away my rage – Let justice prevail
So hail and farewell, kick it in the rear for me
I know who should feel guilty. And I rage.

Tito said I can’t believe in everything that I’m not hearing
He told me that he’s got your back and everyone is throwing a party
So much bullshit and deceit, my fury is enraged, unleashed
I will avenge you, not forget you! Shakespeare! Shakespeare!

My home and my heart and my comfort – paint me green again
My red-blooded meat-eater, so sweet a friend is gone
I never got the chance to wade into another joke
Someone stole you from the ones who love you – don’t forget about us!

They’ve been taken in – God, take away my pain
Take away my rage – Let justice prevail
So hail and farewell, kick it in the rear for me
I know who should feel guilty.

I rage. I ACHE.

THIS LOVE

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Too many times we look outside of us
To find the thing that lives inside of us
A precious gift for life, this thing called Love
You know that it’s the One we’re searching for

I’ve been searching for this Love inside of me
It was here all along inside my heart
But these walls inside of me
Kept me down from the start, locked me up in the dark

This Love inside of me
It was here all along inside my heart
But these walls inside of me
Kept me down from the start, locked me up in the dark

I looked for someone to fulfil my needs
I didn’t know the best for this was me
But when I heard His voice down in my Soul
I found my bliss and now This Love can grow

I’ve been searching for this Love inside of me
It was here all along inside my heart
But these walls inside of me
Kept me down from the start, locked me up in the dark

This Love inside of me
It was here all along inside my heart
But these walls inside of me
Kept me down from the start, locked me up in the dark

This Love inside of me, burning, burning
This Love! This Love! It burns inside me, yeah – Oh yeah, This Love!
This Love (oh, This Love)
It burns inside of me (burning in me)
This Love (oh) it came and set me free
(You came and set me free)
This Love it burns inside of me
(it burns inside of me, burning in me)
This Love, it came and set me free
(Keep the fire burning, yeah, yeah)

THREE TIMES – DSM feat. EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney and Dream Sound Masters
©2017 All Rights Reserved

Deep in the night, I open my eyes
I see the world, it’s turning three times
Three times

Deep in the night, open your eyes
Can you see the world, it’s turning three times
Three times

You don’t know the power that you have inside you
You don’t know the mystery, the game of life
You don’t know the magic of a pure emotion
You don’t know that dreaming brings a thought to life
You don’t know the power that you have inside you

Deep in the night, I open my eyes
I see the world, it’s turning three times
Three times, three times, oh

Deep in the night, open your eyes
Can you see the world, it’s turning three times
Three times, three times
Open your eyes

You don’t know the power that you have inside you
You don’t know the mystery, the game of life
You don’t know the magic of a pure emotion
You don’t know that dreaming brings a thought to life

So, open your eyes, don’t go through life blind
This is our time, let’s leave the madness behind

Deep in the night, let’s open our eyes
We’ll see the world, it’s turning three times
With these minds, three times
Three times to infinity!

TOGETHER – EMMA DIVA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Lately, I’ve been thinking about when we were together
Said you loved me so – I realised you never
Thought I was just a game, judging by how you played
You always made me wait, you thought you had it made

When we were together, I thought that we were cool
I believed in you
When we were together, you didn’t feel it too
I’m a woman who needs real love and respect
Or I’ll walk!

Thought that you could have your cake and eat it blindly
Such a big mistake, but now that’s all behind me
Untangled all your lies, you should apologise
Now I’m on top again, I finally got wise

When we were together, I thought that we were cool
I believed in you
When we were together, you didn’t feel it too
I’m a woman who needs real love and respect
Or I’ll walk!

Respect, or I’ll walk! Respect or I’ll walk!

TONGUE TIED – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

Tongue-tied, are you twisted, are you nervous?
Is it making you foolish? Are you fakin’? Are you no one?
Am I taking you somewhere that you don’t want to remember
‘Cause you see how you once were, and you still are, and you will be?
But I gotta get inside you

Forever tongue-tied! You know that
Forever twisted! I said, I gotta get inside you

And I know you don’t want to know that
You can’t hold me back any longer
Why so sad?
We both know that we’re heading for a disaster!
And I know the difference between us
I can’t hold on any longer
Yeah, I know that; so quit saying:
“It’s all gone but I can’t believe it!”

Tongue-tied, unassisted, out of service
Is it making you reckless? Are you shameless?
Are you hopeless?
Am I drinking you up like a Mojito, Cuban Hiball
Drink it up like a good man, tip and swallow, like you do me
And now I gotta get inside you

Don’t tell my heart to speak the truth
I may or may not think of you
But I’ll never say a word; it would be my undoing
For one last time, let’s be uncouth
And consequently we’ll undo
The ties that bind, but for now I will leave you

Tongue-tied, intercepted, unprotected
‘Cause you’re mine and I’m
Your own sweet Achilles, Belladonna, Deadly Nightshade
We’re sickened and we’re toxic; mass confusion
But we both want it
Last time! Nearly over and it will be forever!

Don’t want it – a covert operation
Don’t want it – another complication
Don’t want it – a bad situation
Don’t want it – a cheaper imitation
Don’t want it – a hidden combination
Don’t want it – a bad education
Don’t want it – another accusation
Don’t want it – I had a revelation!

TONIGHT – KHANDA

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Time goes on again
We’ll begin again

Love is on our side
Got me feeling high
You’ll always have me near
You’re the fire in me and I can see you free
Don’t let this disappear

‘Cause tonight is the night we’ve been waiting for
Open your eyes, you will see
Tonight is the night we’ve been waiting for
This is the time to be free

We’ll be free

Find your meaning
What you believe in

Love is on our side
Got me feeling high
You’ll always have me near
You’re the fire in me and I can see you free
Don’t let this disappear

‘Cause tonight is the night we’ve been waiting for
Open your eyes, you will see
Tonight is the night we’ve been waiting for
This is the time to be free

TRICK OF THE LIGHT – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

Black night, bright stars, but you’re still afraid
Toss and turn, you can’t sleep in the bed you made
Something wet, something sticky in your hair
Is it blood? Is it guilt of your dirty little deeds?

Fake-baked, not a doctor, nor a priest
I don’t care that you’re pickin’ on me
You’ve got a fault, baby; you’re a bad seed
Feel sorry for yourself, if that’s what you need, yeah!

It’s not a trick of the light – we’re all the same in the dark
Leave it all up to you; you don’t know what you want
Just get over it – start being a man
You know you’re responsible for all that happened

Princess, manifest into a Queen
Slight of hand, you can’t see what you’ve done to me
It doesn’t matter, ‘cos I’ve won it in the end
Got God, what you got? Did you lose your only friend?

Don’t take what another man could be
Hoping that your twisted mind’s free
Close your eyes, when I’m holding out the key
Feel sorry for yourself if that’s what you need, yeah!

It’s not a trick of the light – we’re all the same in the dark
Leave it all up to you; you don’t know what you want
Just get over it – start being a man
You know you’re responsible for all that happened

Black night, bright stars, but you’re still afraid
Toss and turn, you can’t sleep in the bed you made
Something wet, something sticky in your hair
Is it blood? Is it guilt of your dirty little deeds?

Fake-baked, not a doctor, nor a priest
I don’t care that you’re pickin’ on me
You’ve got a fault, baby; you’re a bad seed
Feel sorry for yourself, if that’s what you need, yeah!

It’s not a trick of the light – we’re all the same in the dark
Leave it all up to you; you don’t know what you want
Just get over it – start being a man
You know you’re responsible for all that happened

U WANT IT

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1995 All Rights Reserved

Hey girl, I think it’s about time you stop
Treating yourself so bad
That man ain’t no man, if he’s gonna treat his girl like that
Lying and cheating on you
Can’t you see, you should be with me?
It’s time to get wise, cut through all his lies

But I know you want it because he does it every time
You ain’t complaining – why is love so blind?
Next time you’re crying, remember what I told you so
For you to smile again, you gotta let go

Hey girl, I told you once and I told you twice
I won’t tell you again
You gotta step out of the mess that he’s making
I don’t mean to offend
But I’d never do that to you
Can’t you see, I’d treat you like a Queen?
It’s time to get wise, girl, you could be mine

But I know you want it, because he does it every time
You ain’t complaining – why is love so blind?
Next time you’re crying, remember what I told you so
For you to smile again, you gotta let go

You’re so filled with disappointment
Resigned to being used
But you’ll be on top again, ‘cause this isn’t the end
And your heart’s gonna mend
Until then, I’m here, waiting and praying for you

But I know you want it, because he does it every time
You ain’t complaining – why is love so blind?
Next time you’re crying, remember what I told you so
For you to smile again, you gotta let go

Smile again, girl

VIOLENTLY – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics & Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©1995 All Rights Reserved

Black veil and falling tears for my loss
And I stood out in the darkness
And I wished for you to take my hand and
Sweep me off my feet
Cripple me with longing, me and my psychoses
What good could you do after that anyway?

It doesn’t count if you stick out
Your tongue and count to twenty-one
A boy could do that – how am I supposed to sleep now?
You’re so amoral in your thoughts
Machiavellian in your deeds
Still you don’t see me!

And I’m violently shaken, I violently fall
You don’t understand me, or the nature of my soul
You know I’m violently open, violently closed
Suffocate my senses, violently cold
Violently

I knelt down at the foot of your cross
And I prayed for my salvation
And I begged for you to take me with you
Got down on my knees
I’m desperately trying to walk across the water
The waves, they cover me, but you don’t rescue me

You never heard me anyway
But you don’t want me to be anything without you
So I wrap myself around you
I’m just like ivy on a tree, black molasses on a knife
But you won’t share your life!

And I’m violently shaken, I violently fall
You don’t understand me, or the nature of my soul
You know I’m violently open, violently closed
Suffocate my senses, violently cold
Violently

Empty and full, head facing both ways
I’ve tried this before
This passing sensation is sinful and pure
Complicated simplicity – this is my state of mind

And I’m violently shaken, I violently fall
You don’t understand me, or the nature of my soul
You know I’m violently open, violently closed
Suffocate my senses, violently cold
Violently

And I’m violently wanting, I violently call
Cover me with kisses, make no sense at all
You know I’m violently aching, I violently stall
Caught in your enchantment, violently enthralled
Violently

Say the word and I’ll be
Yours for the taking, if you practice what you preach
If you love what you see
Why don’t you come a little closer, baby?

What’s this I’m feeling, getting me high?
It’s taking over my body tonight
Feeling the passion burning inside
What did you put into me?

I drink it up, I take it in
You gave me a potion that is making my head spin
As I feel it slipping down
I want you to come a little closer, baby

Got to get the Voodoo

It’s the voodoo that you do and nobody does it like you

Sometimes, I get a little close to girls you’ve been around
Sometimes, I hear the stories – I don’t care, I don’t care
Sometimes, I get a little close to girls you’ve been around
I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care!

And I don’t care about your other situations
And I don’t care if you’ve been around, you’ve been around
And I don’t care, ’cause with you it’s a celebration
Hold on, yeah! That voodoo!

WAITING – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

I feel like a mannequin
All dressed up in my underwear
Waiting for you, aching for you
Breaking for you and you’re never there

Close my eyes so that I can see
I pretend, it’s a fantasy
Faking for you, taking for you
Waking for you, but there’s only me

So come on tell me now how you want it now
I love the way you show up when you’re needy
I know the inside out, don’t think I’m blinded now
So cheap and nasty is your game
And it’s all about you

Five and you haven’t called me yet
I sit smoking a cigarette
Waiting for you, aching for you
Breaking for you – turn on the TV set

So come on tell me now how you want it now
I love the way you show up when you’re needy
I know the inside out, don’t think I’m blinded now
So cheap and nasty is your game
And it’s all about you

And I can’t stay away
You’re lighting up my face (You make a brighter day)
I know it’s temporary
It always will be, you don’t really want me
(Come on honey, say you want me, say you need me)
But I keep on waiting, anticipating that one day you will be
(Come on honey, say you want me, say you need me)

And I know that you don’t feel the same
You don’t look at me that way
It’s only physical for you
And I need you and I want you, but you don’t

So come on tell me now how you want it now
I love the way you show up when you’re needy
I know the inside out, don’t think I’m blinded now
So cheap and nasty is your game
And it’s all about you

I feel like a mannequin
All dressed up in my underwear
Waiting for you, aching for you
Breaking for you and you’re never there…

WE’RE NOT DONE – CREEON

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
Music by Creeon
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Wandering around, ignoring everything but you
The ignorance of bliss, you’ve no idea what’s left for you

So feel the fear deep inside
Our hearts are pounding, we can’t hide
And here in this moonless night, we’ll prepare to fight

(We’re not done!) The pain will come
(We’re not done!) I’ve been waiting for so long
(We’re not done!) To exact the punishment you deserve
(We’re not done!) You will come undone!

Hush, don’t make a sound
Eyes wide open, can’t deny
That something inside me is grieving, it’s dying
To get out, I can’t hold it in so I’ll let it fly!

The pain will come
(We’re not done!) I’ve been waiting for so long
(We’re not done!) To exact the punishment you deserve
(We’re not done!) You will come undone!

(We’re not done!) The pain will come
(We’re not done!) I’ve been waiting for so long
(We’re not done!) To exact the punishment you deserve
(We’re not done!) You will come undone!

You lie there gagged and bound
You’re numb to everything but you
Delusion, Judas’ kiss, reminds me what’s amiss – it’s YOU

So feel the fear deep inside
Our hearts are pounding, we can’t hide
And here in this moonless night, we’ll prepare to fight

(We’re not done!) The pain will come
(We’re not done!) I’ve been waiting for so long
(We’re not done!) To exact the punishment you deserve
(We’re not done!) You will come undone!

(We’re not done!) The pain will come
(We’re not done!) I’ve been waiting for so long
(We’re not done!) To exact the punishment you deserve
(We’re not done!) You will come undone!

We’re not done!

WHEN MORNING COMES – ILYRIA

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2017 All Rights Reserved

Turn out the lights and close the door
My head is aching, my body is sore
Feels like I’m walking on the wire
My spirit is burning and I’m dog tired

When morning comes, we’ll say goodbye
Go back to living our separate lives
Don’t talk to strangers, don’t make them cry
When morning comes, a little piece of heaven dies

Don’t say a word, just hold my hand
These churning emotions, I understand
I’ll be your comfort if you’ll be mine
Don’t let me drown here, be my lifeline

When morning comes, we’ll say goodbye
Go back to living our separate lives
Don’t talk to strangers, don’t make them cry
When morning comes, a little piece of heaven dies

A moment to feel something is real
This is the deal: Share it with me so we can be free
I’m coming down and I can’t find a way out
Lay with me so we can heal

When morning comes, we’ll say goodbye
Go back to living our separate lives
Don’t talk to strangers, don’t make them cry
When morning comes, a little piece of heaven dies
And so do I

WHITE ALLIGATORS – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2007 All Rights Reserved

(How could you be so nasty? How can you be so vile?)
You were the one who hunted me down
Rocked my world, yeah
Said that we were twin souls, we broke the mould, us against them all (P.T.R.)
You and I on the phone, internet, yeah
So what you jonesin’ for now?
(I’ve been cast out! What’s your new addiction?)

And yourself, you know that you’re lyin’, full of shit, yeah
Come on now, give it to me, give it to me, give it
Give it to me, yeah!
You know the way you fake it, it makes you look so vacant
Oh, now, give it to me, give it to me, give it
Give it to me – oh I think you’re outta luck now!
(And the worst thing is you’re making out that I’m the crazy one, but you and I know the truth)

You’re a selfish S.O.B. – it’s always you, you, YOU, never ME!
(You know, it’s so sad that you turned out to be exactly the type of person that you claim to hate)
But I made allowances for you and your fucked-up brain
So I said “I’ll let him go on with his fantasy
(but you and I know the truth)
I don’t want to ruin things; I don’t wanna rock the gig”
(No confrontation, just humiliation)

(So what did you get out of this?)

How could you do me like this
When I want to believe in you?
(You don’t get to absolve yourself by blaming it on your chemical imbalances, Poor Me syndrome, or just being forgetful, or that you’re an addict.)
You said we were friends, you said that you loved me now
You’d always have my back
But you LIED. (You don’t get to do that.)
You LIED. You’re always LYING (you’re an addict).
Why didn’t I see?
(You don’t get to do that. You’re an addict.)
How did I let you get to me? (How could you be so nasty? How can you be so vile?)

And yourself, you know that you’re lyin’, full of shit, yeah
(And you made me feel like a fool, yeah!)
Come on now, give it to me, give it to me, give it
Give it to me, yeah!
(You made me think I was losing my mind)
You know the way you fake it, it makes you look so vacant
Oh, now, give it to me, give it to me, give it
Give it to me – oh I think you’re outta luck now!

And yourself, you know that you’re lyin’, full of shit, yeah
(No I never did anything to warrant the way you treat me now, yeah)
Come on now, give it to me, give it to me, give it
Give it to me, yeah!
You know the way you fake it, it makes you look so vacant
(You know you’re not being fair to me now, I gave you my all, I gave you my heart)
Oh, now, give it to me, give it to me, give it
Give it to me – oh I think you’re outta luck now!

(So what did you get out of this?)

WORLD AWAY – ALIENARE & ANNA LUX

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney, Alienare and Anna Lux
©2019 All Rights Reserved

The consciousness of feeling less
Darkness is my only friend
Righteousness, the right to guess
It’s on the way to bitterness

But something inside of the wall is reaching out
Run, you should run

Sink or swim, don’t let it dim
Shut it out and make it thin
Don’t let it fall, it kills us all
It wipes us out and then begins
To wash all the world away

I found another one, another heart
To empty out my dreams
I signed another note, another card
To spell out what it means
I walked another road, I walked another road
And it’s breaking beneath my feet

Sink or swim, don’t let it dim
Shut it out and make it thin
Don’t let it fall, it kills us all
It wipes us out and then begins
To wash all the world away

WRONG

Lyrics and Topline by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2020 All Rights Reserved

I guess I’ll give it back to you
When all is said and done, nothing else remains
Yes, I’ll give it back to you
The gift, it came undone…battered, broken, stained

What if it’s too late for us? What if we’re a lost cause?
What if this is all there is? We’re all that lives?

It was never meant to be, look at all the casualties
Something is wrong, something is wrong!
Now I’m hearing dead men scream
Seeing things I should not see
Something is wrong, something is wrong!
Revolution calling! Calling out our names
Evolution stalling! Maybe we can’t change?

When I give it back to you
Try to talk around, cast my mind in doubt
Still, I’ll give it back to you
If you’re the banquet, then I’d rather go without
Your words keep on trailing, my patience is failing
If I’m Love, you keep hating
My conscience is calling, my energy falling
If it’s war, then I’m all in now

What if it’s too late for us? What if we’re a lost cause?
What if this is all there is? We’re all that lives?

It was never meant to be, look at all the casualties
Something is wrong, something is wrong!
Now I’m hearing dead men scream
Seeing things I should not see
Something is wrong, something is wrong!
Revolution calling! Calling out our names
Evolution stalling! Maybe we can’t change?

Something is wrong, something is wrong!

It was never meant to be, look at all the casualties
Something is wrong, something is wrong!
Now I’m hearing dead men scream
Seeing things I should not see
Something is wrong, something is wrong!
Revolution calling! Calling out our names
Evolution stalling! Maybe we can’t change?

Now I’m hearing dead men scream…

I’m like a fire, you don’t need to get me warm
‘Cause my desire has got me burning all night long
Here’s what I’m saying from the heart
Be my lover, like no other

Everybody, listen what I’m saying
Love is only ever what you make it
You’re responsible if you break it
Take care of my heart

I really feel it, so I’m gonna give my all
And I know you mean it, how you do express your love
My heart’s aflame, I feel no shame, so much to gain now
Nothing can tear our love apart, no

Everybody, listen what I’m saying
Love is only ever what you make it
You’re responsible if you break it
Take care of my heart

‘Cause you are beautiful, I said you are beautiful
Oh, you are beautiful
You are, you are the best thing to happen to me

No one can tear us apart

YOU DON’T KNOW ME – QUEEN TANTRUM

Lyrics and Music by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

Drugged up and emptied out
Stacked up and cracked down
(Barely 21, you feel 100 years have gone)
Mind-funked and overwrought
Programmed and partied out
(Keep your legs closed, eyes open, functional black hole)

You can’t hide, it’s not right, you know that
So don’t try, just take flight!

I see you slutting through the bars
In the back of cars, taking men home
(Keep your legs closed, eyes open, functional black hole)
Looking for a place to lay your head
You’re giving head like it’s all
You’ve gotta give, something’s gotta give, you gotta give!

Still you say!

Don’t criticize what you don’t know, you don’t know me!
(I’m too high tonight, I’m falling from the sky)
Just fantasize about the side of me I want you to see!
(Don’t glance behind the poisoned paradigm!)

Everything is wonderful
And I’m so damned happy
This hole inside my heart feels good
Believe what I’m saying…

Don’t criticize what you don’t know, you don’t know me!
(I’m too high tonight, I’m falling from the sky)
Just fantasize about the side of me I want you to see!
(Don’t glance behind the poisoned paradigm!)

#NEON – ALIENARE

Lyrics by Emma L.M. Sweeney
©2019 All Rights Reserved

A river runs throughout to wash away the
Blame and doubt
Let the water flow, let the water flow

We’re the ones we have to face
For our part in this cold race
Have we done the best we can?
We can try to float away, take advantage of the rain
The waves will bring us back again

So we will reunite, set the place alight
Let the fire inside burn us bright

In the neon lights, we don’t know why
We’re going to live or die tonight
#Neon!

We’re the ones we have to face
For our part in this cold race
Have we done the best we can?

So we will reunite, set the place alight
Let the fire inside burn us bright

In the neon lights, we don’t know why
We’re going to live or die tonight
#Neon!

With these green and black pyromaniacs
We will build an army and we’ll bring them back
Again

In the neon lights, we don’t know why
We’re going to live or die tonight
#Neon!
