I Lose Myself © 2019 Noelle Hampton/Sirja Puurtinen I am a traveler, you’re my direction I am a live wire, you’re my connection Breathe you, feel you, steal you, all your affection When I’m invisible, you’re my reflection When I lose myself in you I become an animal Like a word you hold me to I know I am accountable In this infinite love I am a spirit in the sun And a river that will run Until it’s all been said and done In this infinite love We slowly find our way And become the words we say In this infinite love I know that we’re not perfect But baby we’ve got timing We move all the stars around Until they are aligning Break me wide open, it’s a divine thing It’s a divine thing, it’s a divine thing When I lose myself in you I become an animal Like a word you hold me to I know I am accountable In this infinite love I am a spirit in the sun And a river that will run Until it’s all been said and done In this infinite love We slowly find our way And become the words we say In this infinite love

Lucid Dream 03:18
LUCID DREAM ©Noëlle Hampton ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing So you’re hiding out in the mundane Pierce the skin and you hit the vein Test your blood for a sign of life Everyone you meet has a mirrored eye Staring at the ground you can see the sky Go ahead and run with the blade out LUCID DREAM SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE LIKE A PRIMAL SCREAM SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE Now you sleep to dream just to take control Your blood pumping through the alcohol You check your mind for a sign of life You chase the high in your dream state Everything is heavy and the bough breaks Go ahead, do it anyway LUCID DREAM SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE LIKE A PRIMAL SCREAM SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE Half awake, retrace, blank slate Paralyzed, hypnotized, rapid eyes Let your mind go, if you say so You can move it forward LUCID DREAM SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE LIKE A PRIMAL SCREAM SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE (x2)

Golden Hour 03:55
©Noelle Hampton ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing Golden Hour I want to see you in the golden hour The light on your face I want to see you in the golden hour Your lines I could trace Come lay with me in the golden hour As the sun is sinking low I feel you with me in the golden hour Your radiant glow I won’t “say when,” It’s never enough As twilight bends to touch the dark I won’t “say when,” It’s never enough, it’s never enough I want to see you in the golden hour Catch the rays in our hands Everything’s calm in the golden hour Footprints in the sand Sit with me now in the golden hour Where we belong Follow me through this golden hour It’s almost gone I won’t “say when,” It’s never enough As twilight bends to touch the dark I won’t “say when,” It’s never enough, it’s never enough It’s never enough, it’s never enough It’s never enough

Like Glass 03:06
LIKE GLASS ©Noëlle Hampton ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing You were the wrecking ball We are the broken wall Was your time here just borrowed? You were the labyrinth We were all caught in it But never walked the path of your sorrow It cracks, like glass Then we can’t see through it at all We should have known It breaks, we take A little bit of each other’s pain We can’t atone We never should have let you go It’s something we will always know You were a fierce wind when you chose to be I want to think I’m over it But I’m drowning in my own guilt Now trying to hear the words you’d say to me It cracks, like glass Then we can’t see through it at all We should have known It breaks, we take A little bit of each other’s pain We can’t atone It cracks, like glass, it cracks

LOVE WILL CHANGE ©Noëlle Hampton/ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing You thought you had it locked down Thought you’d figured it out Everything about me But I don’t give it out So easily, so easily It’s gonna’ take some time for me You’ll find my mind is up and down, up and down You’ll know my soul is lost and found, lost and found Hey sweet bird, let me hear you croon You think my love will change like the phase of a moon I think that we can say it’s changing soon You’ll see baby, we’re up and down, up and down Can’t stop this heart from getting ‘round, getting ‘round I can’t control this love, just like the river flows There’s a place it starts and a place it goes You’ll find my mind is up and down, up and down You’ll know my soul is lost and found, lost and found You’ll see baby, we’re up and down, up and down Can’t stop this heart from getting ‘round, getting ‘round

UNTIL THE LIGHT COMES UP ©Noëlle Hampton ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing Take me tonight Let’s dance until we see the morning light I’ve been alright, But I need to be reminded I’m alive Take me away Where the golden glitter dance floor starts to shake Let’s make a mistake There’s no reason that tonight we should behave Don’t wait for me I won’t be home until the light comes up, ’til the light comes up Feel everything I won’t be home until the light comes up, ’til the light comes up Go on and touch me tonight Put your arms around my body and hold me tight Now I’m closing my eyes Let the music hide me deep in it’s disguise Don’t wait for me I won’t be home until the light comes up, ’til the light comes up Feel everything I won’t be home until the light comes up, ’til the light comes up And we dance under all the stars Making out in the back of your car We’re beautiful as we are Don’t wait for me I won’t be home until the light comes up, ’til the light comes up Feel everything I won’t be home until the light comes up, ’til the light comes up

TAKE THE DARE ©Noëlle Hampton 2020 You’re a lonely one Might be the only one That never fit the mold And you’re suddenly aware All eyes on you, take the dare Will you drown for this? Will you go down for this? The water fills your mouth like a warm kiss And you’re suddenly aware All eyes on you, take the dare The walls push in And you feel yourself fall The pressure is real after all You don’t see yourself in your reflection You seek the connection Now the room spins Your mind full of toxins And they feed you ’til you fade And don’t hear them talking And you’re suddenly aware All eyes on you, take the dare The walls push in And you feel yourself fall The pressure is real after all You don’t see yourself in your reflection You seek the connection Walls push in And you feel yourself fall The pressure is real after all You don’t see yourself in your reflection You need the connection All eyes on you, take the dare All eyes on you, take the dare All eyes on you, take the dare

NOW YOU SEE ME ©2020 Noëlle Hampton I’ve got a secret It’s coming all apart Truth be an arrow Aim straight for the heart I’ve had a secret Since I was just a child Put it in a pocket Ignore it for a while But it’s catching up to me I remember everything Now you see me Putting on the makeup Give your attention To the dancing clown Now you see me Moving through the shakeup The rising of the dangerous things I used to push down I’ve got a secret Soon everyone will know Truth be a bullet Aimed straight for the soul I know a secret The pain becomes your heart You live to escape it You pull yourself apart Now you see me Putting on the makeup Give your attention To the dancing clown Now you see me Moving through the shakeup The rising of the dangerous things I used to push down

I'll Be Here Where The Heart Is It's the song that just keeps playing on the radio And you know I haven't seen you for a while I lie awake at night And I wonder how you are And I wish that I could be you again Is it luck or is it fate That brings us back Or is it just a common point of view Time has put a spell on you You never seem to change And I wish that I could see you again But I'll be here where the heart When the dreams that we've been after All come true You will find me here where the heart is I'll wait for you I'll wait for you It's the light that keeps shining day after day When other loves have come and gone I'll be here with open arms to take you in And I wish that I could see you again And in between And when I need to see you again All I have to do Is close my eyes Oh the picture's coming in my friend I'll hold you again But who knows when But I'll be here where the heart When the dreams that we've been after All come true You will find me here where the heart is I'll wait for you I'll wait for you

Post-War 03:24
POST-WAR ©The Belle Sounds/Noëlle Hampton This year’s trying to kill us slowly We hold on day by day I’m moving like a soldier through the muddy mess of what we can’t unsay And we find we’re not in sync anymore Everything is different around here post-war And we know we’re not in love any more It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war You should have treaded lightly You know I’m like a charged landmine I count from one to ninety Just to see if you change your tone this time And we find we’re not in sync anymore Everything is different around here post-war And we know we’re not in love any more It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war I know this left marks on both of us, both of us And I’m missing that spark from both of us, both of us This year was unexpected This year has made a mess of things There’s nothing left connected It’s a war that no one wins And we find we’re not in sync anymore Everything is different around here post-war And we know we’re not in love any more It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war And we find we’re not in sync anymore Everything is different around here post-war And we know we’re not in love any more It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war

Stay Alive 05:51
STAY ALIVE ©Noëlle Hampton/Ray Prim Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever No one’s here to save you but that’s nothing new You’ve spent a lifetime waiting but nobody follows through And all along you carry such a burden in your mind Trying to just get through it But they always will remind you And your heart can’t take anymore Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever The truth is hard to swallow The words get trapped inside And everything familiar seems to change Waiting for tomorrow and praying for the day Somewhere somehow there’s gotta’ be a way Oh to move on, oh to move on Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever Don’t let go (Don’t let go) Don't you let go Of what you have, who you are, Every breath, every day that comes next Don’t let go (Don’t let go) Don't you let go Of what you have, who you are, Every breath, every day that comes next I’m on your side Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever Stay alive, we need you more than ever (Keep breathing) Stay alive, we need you more than ever (Keep breathing)

about

We had committed to releasing a single every month in 2020 long before we found out what 2020 would actually be like. It became more of a challenge but we managed to stay on course and we are so proud of the work we did. For the ease of purchasing and downloading we have compiled them into an album
