Ακούμε το ομώνυμο τραγούδι από το ολοκαίνουργιο άλμπουμ της αξιόλογης Αμερικανίδας singer-songwriter Shannon Lay – ανάμεσα στις επιρροές της [αυτές μου κίνησαν αρχικά το ενδιαφέρον] αναφέρει τον Nick Drake, τους Velvet, αλλά και τους …Damned και τους Slayer.

The eponymous song from the brand new album released by the distinguished American singer-songwriter Shannon Lay. Among her influences [that’s what caught my attention in the first place] she cites artists like Nick Drake, Velvet U, The Damned and Slayer.

❝ I’ll miss the sea
but i’m longing to grow
without change
something sleeps inside us
rare to wake
rare to wake
sleeper must awaken
have you always been who you are?
without change
something sleeps inside us
rare to wake
rare to wake
I will miss my home
but i’m longing to grow
i will miss my pain
but i have to make way
for something better
without change
something sleeps inside us
rare to wake
rare to wake
have you always been who you are?
i will notice where my tracks are laid
i will ask if they serve me
i will see
and agree
to receive
all i need have i always been who i am?
without change
something sleeps inside us
rare to wake
rare to wake
have you always been who you are?
have you always been who you are? ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
