about

The Glass Child Sweden

Im an organized mess.I believe in the future,for Ive seen yesterday and Im still alive.When I was 18 I left everything I knew and moved all on my own to London to create the life I wanted to live & find the person I wanted to be. I learned how to build my home in my music and my words. When I sing or write, I'm not scared anymore. I believe in writing your own story,and that's what Im doing here. ... more

Track Name: The Fall
The Fall – The Glass Child
www.TheGlassChildOfficial.com

You knew that I would fall for, fell for you
Did you see the way I fought for you, changed for you?
Never knew that love could be
this much pain and misery

And you know that I would stick to you, die for you
And the ways that I relied on you, needed you
You used to see same in me.

Am I never gonna see you cry now
Am I never gonna ask you why, no
Am I never gonna hold you tight
when you’re on your knees

They’re asleep and I am up all night
I see you every time I close my eyes
Oh I thought that you would wait for me,
Wait for me?

Now I see that I went blind for you, hide the truth
Built us up inside my head as like I always do
Panic hits when I wake up, you’ve already given up

I’m walking faceless through the days
Since you’ve been gone I’m all a haze
I am barely hanging on
Tell me where did I go wrong

Am I never gonna see you cry now
Am I never gonna ask you why, no
Am I never gonna hold you tight
when you’re on your knees?

They’re asleep and I am up all night
I see you every time I close my eyes
Oh I thought that you would wait for me,
Wait for me.

It is time to let this go
I’m done with this
I am barely hanging on
And they say walk on on your own
But it’s all wrong

Am I never gonna see you cry now
Am I never gonna ask you why, no
Am I never gonna hold you tight
when you’re on your knees?

They’re asleep and I am up all night
I see you every time I close my eyes
Oh I thought that you would wait for me,
Wait for me.


Wait for me
Don’t let us be
This tragedy
We’ve grown to be

You went so cold
I lost it all
This quiet war
don’t let us be
this tragedy
Track Name: Winter Girls
The world got quiet, sorry I have no excuse
I’m awake but I’m not slipping to whichever world I choose
There’s a scream somewhere but I’m too gone to even care
As you shake my bones I whisper ’I am fine, I swear’

I lost the summer inside I’m the winter girl you’ll never see
Staying up all night chasing butterflies to set them free
As you hold me close I whisper ’make it go away’
Now I watch you go, you’re the only reason why I stayed

If I told you about the melancholy in my mind
I’m sorry, but it’s always gonna be around
You told me I’ll never live here like you do
now you’re leaving me behind
My hero shot me down

You let go of me
don’t see what I see
I’m doubting myself for my belief
How can I feel free
with nothing in me
I’m shutting you out don’t speak don’t breathe
I want them to see, the absence of me
I’m counting my bones
I’m twisting the thrones
The less I am me the more I feel like home

I lost the summer inside I’m the winter girl you’ll never see
Staying up all night chasing butterflies to set them free
As you hold me close I whisper ’make it go away’
Now I watch you go, you’re the only reason why I stayed
Track Name: Who Am I
Who Am I - The Glass Child
www.TheGlassChildOfficial.com

There was a man in my dream saying ”listen;
You are a child of a wandering kind and
you need to follow the stars for your reasons, don’t ask why”
And now I swallow my tears as he whisper
Holding on learning to be strong
I’m reading bibles and poets of wisdom, asking why

Now I hold my breath
when they say I’m blessed
Hold me tight tonight

I confess
This is all a test
How long can I survive?

I’m dropping wax in the mid of my palms now
Open up, feel the wound, pour the salt
And I am slow-walking after my call
He’s calling me

I spend my days making up for the passed one
Holding on to my life best I can
come throw me into the eye of the storm
Just come give me some more
Who am I?

I’m wearing guns on the back of my feet now
Learning sounds pressing hard to the ground
I’m waking up with an ache and a fever
I’m alive

And as I’m making my way by the river
Making friends with the homeless men
and I’m learning life from a lifeless believer
I’m alive

And I hold my breath
when they say I’m blessed
Hold me tight tonight

I confess
This is all a test
How long can I survive?

I’m dropping wax in the mid of my palms now
Open up, feel the wound, pour the salt
And I am slow-walking after my call
He’s calling me

I spend my days making up for the passed one
Holding on to my life best I can
come throw me into the eye of the storm
Just come give me some more
Who am I?

Can’t they see I’m all alone
This road is now my home
I went to find some piece of mind
What’s living meant to be?

I’m researching for myself
I’m my own heaven and hell
And will I find some piece of mind
within this shell?

I’m dropping wax in the mid of my palms now
Open up, feel the wound, pour the salt
And I am slow-walking after my call
He’s calling me

I spend my days making up for the passed one
Holding on to my life best I can
come throw me into the eye of the storm
Just come give me some more
Who am I?
