about

The debut EP, “Inner Voices” is an Indie Folk album, drawing on musical influences such as Feist, Ingrid Michaelson and Brooke Fraser. “Good music speaks to you in ways where words fail,” Vanessa Faith says. “Inner Voices” echoes this sentiment, with songs like “Green-Eyed-Monster” and “Peek-A-Boo” written as a response to her struggles and many episodes in life, particularly in the past two years. The album has a heavy emphasis on the themes of Freedom and Victory as she learnt to deal with what life handed her.

Track Name: Welcome To My World
You say
I will falter
But I stand still
Waving Hello to you

You say
I live in a strange land
Where dreams and melodies
Are colours and sand

Welcome to my world (x4)
Track Name: Green-Eyed Monster
Verse1:
Why do you go
And compare
To those around you
To be dispaired

Why do you say
She's so pretty
And you're just needy
An Ugly Betty

Pre-Chorus 1:
All you see is all these
Photoshopped paper dolls
You can't be like them
And you're scared

Chorus:
Green-eyed monster
Green-eyed monster
Slowly its creeping up to your bones

Green-eyed monster
Green-eyed monster
You gotta get it out
Before it gets you


Verse2:
Why do you go
And compare
And say its better
To have that hair

Why do you say
You're not good enough
To have your own style
You wanna be someone else

Pre-Chorus 2:
All you see is all these
Photoshopped paper dolls
You're not meant to be like them
Cos you're real

(Chorus)
Track Name: You Don't Say
Verse 1:
You don't say, what you feel
You're afraid, of losing face
All I need is you
Not what sounds great
All I want is you And anything you say

Verse 2:
You don't say, what I mean to you
You're afraid, I'll be amazed
All you want is me
Smiling everyday
All you want is to Mean what you say

Chorus:
Mean what you say (x4)

Bridge:
If you just say what you do not mean
How do you expect me to, get it right?
I've tried it once, and I've tried it twice
But won't you help me please
By doing this

Chorus:
Mean what you say (x4)

Verse 3:
You don't say, what you feel
You're afraid, of losing face
All I need is you
Not what sounds great
All I want is you
To mean what you say
Track Name: If Life
Verse 1:
The lady under the bridge
Do you see her?
Her children left years ago
Never to come back

Verse 2:
Children roaming the streets
Do you hear them?
Their hearts speak of a song
With no one to sing them

Pre-Chorus:
I say life
Isn’t just about being merry
And life isn’t just about the few of us

Verse 3:
People passing us by
Like jet speed ferries
With hopes and dreams on their sleeves
With no one to see them
Trails of tears and sorrow
With no one to find them
You search for a meaning
For all you’re holding on to

Pre-Chorus:
If life was all a dream
Would you wake up happy?
If today was your last day alive
What would you carry?

Chorus 1:
Aye Aye
You could make a difference
In the lives around you
In need of a friend
In need of a hand

Chorus2:
If you just had the ears to hear
If you just had the eyes to see
Track Name: Peek-A-Boo
Verse 1:
Skip-a-long
Sing a song
Right under all these trees

Verse 2:
Close my eyes
Count to five
Still I find, you’re not here
Anymore

Chorus 1:
Peek-a-boo
How do you do?
Peek-a-boo
To you
Peek-a-boo
A game for two?
Peek-a-boo
You left
That’s all I knew

Verse 3:
Took a float
Sailed a boat
Dreaming out loud alone

Verse 4:
Bought a hat
And a cat
Still I’m not happy yet

Chorus 2:
Peek-a-boo
How do you do?
Peek-a-boo
To you
Peek-a-boo
A game for two?
Peek-a-boo
You left
That’s all I knew

Bridge:
Dissonance
Dissonance
Ooo

Chorus 3:
Peek-a-boo
How do you do?
Peek-a-boo
To you
Peek-a-boo
A game for two?
Peek-a-boo
You left
That’s all I knew
Track Name: No (Bring Me Down)
Verse 1:
All I have are these but my dreamings
I know I know you try to bring me down
Awake my soul from all this slumber
And yet forget to check your heart

Verse 2:
You try to tell me who are but
What you said is really marred
You said I'm twisted
Illusions fake it
Who do you think you are?
You haven't really gone very far
I know I know you try to bring me down

Chorus:
No No No
Stop trying to stop me
This time I'm not foolish I think i can own it
No No No
Stop trying to change me
I know this is the way I choose to be

Verse 3:
I never needed anything more than you
Just like you I'm only human
Track Name: Awake O' Sleeper
Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo...

Awake O' Sleeper
Your time has come
Oh how your soul sings
Of dreams it seems

Of hills and valleys
Of deep within
Be all you can be
The day has dawned
