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: Tell The World
A journey on a a broken piece of glass
On my own in a town that has no soul
Learned how, to breathe alone

Learned to march up straight
Avert my eyes no more
Learned to face the demons in my soul
You can’t show no fear to survive out here

Learned to use my voice and sing up loud enough
Maybe loud enough for you to hear me
I know you thought I disappeared

Tell the world I’m still alive
I found a way, yeah I survived
Tell the world I’m not afraid
For I’ve seen yesterday and I survived

Oh you thought I ran away
from my failures from yesterday
That I would crawl back home
and confess my weaknesses for you

I bet you’re safe back home where I left you
Still observing the life you’re serving
But I aint slaving no more
I won this inside war

Tell the world I’m still alive
I found a way, yeah I survived
Tell the world I’m not afraid
For I’ve seen yesterday and I survived

Tell the world I’m still alive
I found a way, yeah I survived
Like a soldier I resolve
I found a way on my own

Tell the world that I survived
Tell the world I’m still alive
There’s a burning on my skin
I’m on fire from within

Tell the world I’m still alive
I found a way, yeah I survived
Tell the world I’m not afraid
For I’ve seen yesterday and I survived

Tell the world I’m still alive
I found a way, yeah I survived
Like a soldier I resolve
I found a way on my own
Track Name: Insanity
There was a night of pouring rain
I lost it all, I went insane
I felt the blood freeze in my veins

I went to sleep but think i drowned
And woke up down here underground
Well it’s not real so I can’t be found

I live here now, with my mind and me
oh we’re such a master team
haunting for my daily meal

Like a spider catch fly
I’ll taste your blood than spit you out
You think I’m crazy?
Well I think you’re right

I can’t decide what’s real or what I’ve just read
I think I made you up inside my head
That’s what I do
Create characters like you
Then I tear them apart
Rip out theirs hearts, and feed them to the sharks
You think it’s unreal?
But don’t forget it real in my head

Baby you’re going down, down, down
I eat boys like you all the time
And haven’t you heard, heard, heard
Once you’re in my creepy world

You’re playing by my rules
You don’t learn stuff like this in school
I see humans as just tools

You’ll never be same
I‘ll mess you up in every way
Oh my life is just a game
and baby you’re going down

The day you knocked upon my door
I let you in, I planned my sin
I’ve got those words carved on my skin

I’m an actress baby, good like hell
can dress like them and kiss as well
I’ve got a bunch dudes locked in my cell

Reality’s just not for me
people with all their royalties
Who said escapism is a disease?

Ah just let me live my way
Life is just a game I play
and sanity’s the price I pay

Pre-chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Best Part Of Me
It was a sunday morning
I called and said we have to talk
I felt his hands getting cold
as we walked in the dark

I said,
I cant live this unfree
too many things I want to be
I need to go after my dream
I’m sorry, I think I have to leave

I saw it in his eyes
when something inside dies

I can’t be trusted, I always leave
Don’t ever fall for a girl like me
I should have told you from the start

My story’s doomed to turn out wrong
You stole my power to stay strong
and then I left you with half of me

And now we’re living miles apart
I’ve got something heavy growing in my heart
I left you to be free, but you were the bets part of me
I left the best part of me

I’ve been re-living every conversation
at least a million times
Playing like a film on repeat every sleepless night
And there are memories of you, in everything I do
and everyone I meet, I just compare with you

I can’t be trusted, I always leave
Don’t ever fall for a girl like me
I should have told you from the start

My story’s doomed to turn out wrong
You stole my power to stay strong
and then I left you with half of me

And now we’re living miles apart
I’ve got something heavy growing in my heart
I left you to be free, but you were the bets part of me
I left the best part of me

I saw it in his eyes
when something inside dies

My story’s doomed to turn out wrong
You stole my power to stay strong
and then I left you with half of me

And now we’re living miles apart
I’ve got something heavy growing in my heart
I left you to be free, but you were the bets part of me
I left the best part of me
Track Name: Hypnic Jerk
Lyrics:

The day is finally over and you come alive
I’m slowly opening my window let you come inside
In the dark, all my fears they all disappear
It’s a hoax my love
I’ve seen it all before

You hear him whisper like a distant call
and then he tells you that he miss you, makes you feel so small
In the dark with the stars it all seems so close
In your head it’s real he’s getting near and

Softly, you lay your head beside me
Say you feel my heart beat
I’m too numb to feel you
I’m to numb to see you

Tell me are you see-through?
This ghost you’re turning into
I shut my eyes, and you’re no longer here

And when the sun is slowly rising it all hits me hard
Like a knife in my chest ripping out my hard
Reality is out there tearing lives apart
I’m living here alone with just a memory of you

I’m acting normal saying hi each day
One feet and then the other, hide your ghost away
Then they say the day is over and you come alive
In my head it’s real, you’re getting near

Softly, you lay your head beside me
Say you feel my heart beat
I’m too numb to feel you
I’m to numb to see you

Tell me are you see-through?
This ghost you’re turning into
I shut my eyes, and you’re no longer here
Track Name: the Devil's Sin
I have lead the devil’s sin.
With a blind before my eyes.
I have bloodstains on my skin.
Got buried in his lies.
Felt his teeth upon my thighs.

My mind in his grip and through my lips
the devil’s words I let slip
and then your breath and soul
like a thief I stole
Oh God I’m losing control

He screw my head around
Then I shot you down
I no longer know what’s wrong or right

If you only knew every move I do
Is the devil’s fist thrown to hurt you

You are a the stake
In a dead heart’s game
I am the way your heart will break

There’s evil in in me
I lead the devil’s sin

I don’t want you to be the one who’s left all alone
I’ll make you the one to go
He said he’ll help me scare you away
but after every attack he leaves me whispering please stay

My mind in his grip and through my lips
The devil’s words I let slip
And then your breath and soul
like a thief I stole
Oh God I’m losing control

He screw my head around
Then I shot you down
I no longer know what’s wrong or right

If I only knew every move I do
Is the devil’s fist thrown to hurt you

You are the stake in a dead heart’s game
I am the way your heart will break
There’s evil in in me

I lead the devil’s sin
I wear him on my skin
I am how your heart breaks
This is a dead heart’s game
