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

Track Name: On My Mind
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
Track Name: Umami
No I don’t know who you are, no I don’t know where you bin, no I don’t know
I don’t know what to do, ohh who are you? No I don’t know

Who are you? Who are you? Umami. Who are you? Who are you? Umami
Who are you? Who are you? Umami. Who are you? Who are you? Umami

I haven’t known you for long, oh just please what’s goin on, goin on
I’m gonna take my time, I’m gonna live my life, oh live my life
I’m not gonna follow you, give your ego a boost, follow you
This cannot be a crime, you take up far too much time, too much time

Who are you? Who are you? Umami. Who are you? Who are you? Umami
Who are you? Who are you? Umami. Who are you? Who are you? Umami

This cannot be a crime, you take up far too much time, too much time

Who are you? Who are you? Umami. Who are you? Who are you? Umami
Who are you? Who are you? Umami. Who are you? Who are you? Umami
Track Name: Lullaby
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
Track Name: We Want Change
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
Track Name: In A Dream
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
Track Name: Wasted Time
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…
Track Name: Falling
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
Track Name: One Day
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…
