On My Mind 04:29
Hold my hand, for a while, let me look at you Speak to me, oh so quietly, I’ll tell you the truth Give me time, you’re on my mind Give me time, I will find my love I hear you, do you hear me too I’ll love you, just give me time Overboard, so insecure, why do you evoke, Such obscurity, within me, essence of repose, But so entrapped, I could not, tend to every whim, I’m strong and sound just the way I am, I’m not ready to begin Give me time, you’re on my mind Give me time, I will find my love I hear you, do you hear me too I’ll love you, just give me time I know we’ll find, just give me time something to say, show me the way I know we’ll find just give me time I know it’s you, no questioning who Give me time, you’re on my mind Give me time, I will find my love I hear you, do you hear me too I’ll love you, just give me time

Lullaby 03:49
Suddenly your voice it seems to be, a lullaby wading me to sleep And I cried for the dreams, show to me oh so monstrous things oh oh oh… It’s time to sleep oh oh oh… Sing with me And mother please, father heed, sing with me, your lullaby All the time dreaming of the night, the time and time it takes you to arrive oh oh oh… It’s time to sleep oh oh oh… Sing with me And mother please, father heed, sing with me, your lullaby

make you understand that this is my world, always a crime to say what’s on my mind, find a reason, to leave you behind Cannot take a breath, take a step, tell me the truth You’ll find I have a mind, never mind, that don’t matter to you Someone lead the way, that’s okay, it won’t be worse Worse than all the pain, self-gain, somebody care Someone take the blame, not again, such filthy ways, Your strong and stable lies can’t justify, it’s in your eyes We're done with your games Your twisted selfish ways Not in my name we want, we want change Speak out shout loud, we want change Speak out shout loud, we want change

In A Dream 05:48
Every time she finds her temper Her heart is on her sleeve With longing pulsing through her She’ll brush it off with ease Too long she’s been waiting for love, that swiftly will decay And oh he looks right through her As though she were a dream His conscience lacks awareness Of all that he has been Too long she’s been waiting for love, hoping She’s on her own in a dream Lost in between Wandering wearily endlessly nowhere She’s gone with nothing to show And though he may be tender His words will make you cry And though his body lacks in stature His mind will make you sigh Too long she has travelled for love, his heart is made of stone His eyes are like the ocean Her feet are soaking wet He makes a passing comment As though they never met Too long she has travelled for love, hoping She’s on her own in a dream Lost in between Wandering wearily endlessly nowhere She’s gone with nothing to show
6.
Wasted Time 04:14
She’s not found the time to quantify find her vital signs, her state of mind Days and nights may pass but they don’t last She just can’t comprehend the time she’s spent On and on, she’s waitin’ for… Life oh, she’s feeling confined, and wasting her… time She should learn to rest her busy head Learn to not regret the words she said Lead her life, her life’s to lead Day by day it gets away On and on, she’s waitin’ for… Life oh, she’s feeling confined, and wasting her…

Falling 04:32
Warm raindrop along my cheek See the sky so incomplete Oh I wonder where the rainbow goes Is it there to lead me home When Autumn dawns and my blood runs cold, the rain it falls upon my face again When the seasons change nothing’s the same, the rain it falls upon my face again Ohh I can feel myself falling Ohh I can hear the storm coming falling, I’m drowning How your wind engulfs my quiet Your thunder dominates my night Nothing broken, nothing stolen Find a way to say goodbye Ohh I can feel myself falling Ohh I can hear the storm coming falling, I’m drowning I'm drowning in the darkness of the day, I’m falling I’m twisting and turning in my bed Tumblin over words, feeling unheard I’m running from the storm that keeps me on, I’m falling I'm drowning in the darkness of the day Feeling so lost, so led astray I’m twisting and turning in my bed, I'm falling

One Day 05:08
Listen, transition I question who I am Fallen and taken digression give a damn Don’t have a plan, can hardly stand Watching and waiting and touching all that I can touch Sitting and waiting and yearning for your love Is this me, all I should be One day, someday, I’ll find my way steady, slowly, led astray today, make way, I’ll find my way unsteady, so boldly, led astray Da do, da do, da do… Who I am, all I can stand Thinking and doing and saying what should be said Loving accepting forgiving myself instead Hold my hand, help me stand One day, someday, I’ll find my way steady, slowly, led astray today, make way, I’ll find my way unsteady, so boldly, led astray Give me a reason why, why I still have to try I just can’t look away, can’t help but lose my way I never learnt to feel, to feel something real These feelings take control, oh my head to my toe But soon I’ll know…

about

“‘On My Mind’ is singer-songwriter, Rosie Frater-Taylor’s debut album. To listen to these beautifully crafted pop song structures, after hearing her play live, only re-affirmed what I already know. ‘In A Dream’ is the perfectly formed song - strange, knowing chord changes and a strong sure melody, marks Rosie as a unique, immensely accessible new voice. The banked-up vocals, Rosie’s creative, honest and highly musical guitar accompaniment, and heart-stoppingly fresh lyrics, echoes an important legacy of singer/songwriters from Janis Ian, through Joni and Tracey Chapman to the denser, jazzier roster- where Me’shell Ndegeocello, Rebecca Martin and Emily King hold court. Superb, surprising and highly enjoyable, this is a cracking debut from this new young artist" Ian Shaw, Sept 2018
