about

Nancy Falkow County Wicklow, Ireland

As a solo artist, I made several records with brilliant musicians and producers in Philadelphia. I toured. Some of my songs ended up on TV & in Film.

2004 I moved to Ireland, 2005 I got married & in 2006 I had a beautiful baby girl. I move fast.

In 2008 I released an album with SUNFLOW, and our song "I Wish You Love," got lots of love.

Thanks for joining me on the ride...It ain't over yet.

Track Name: Stay
Oh what's going on
Why does it always seem like everything is wrong
Oh we both belong
As long as we can dream then we can be as strong

A state of mind
A length of t ime
You can see what it takes for us to

Stay

Oh what's going on
How long before we learn that it will all be gone
Oh we both belong
And yes I know the difference between right and wrong
Before our eyes in plain view why should this be so hard
When the only thing I want to do is stay

Aw flash back
in your rear view
Looking right thru
Like a ghost you
Wanna cling to
What you think you
Really want
It's what I want too
For us to both get through and
Ultimately

Stay
Track Name: Blindsided
Why'd you let me fall in love with you
Why'd you let me fall apart
You said you told me so
I still never saw it coming
Collect the pieces of my heart

Blindsided
Blindsided

Why didn't I listen to that little voice
The one that said this isn't right
Your voice was screaming I could
Hear it from across the street
Do you sleep better tonite?

Blindsided
Blindsided
But I see it all Today

Why didn't I see it at the time?
I guess I was mistakenly sublime
Now I collect the pieces of my heart

Blindsided
But I see it all Today

Blindsided
Blindsided
Track Name: Sometimes You Jump
You grow up like a smart weed
A little wild a lotta free
But maybe not as beautiful

But I guess you take what life gives to you
On a silver platter or a paper plate
You do what you're supposed to do

But you never stop
Thinking about what you have got
But is it ever enough?

Sometimes you jump
Just to see what it feels like to fall
But not for any reason at all

Half a mile from everything
Someone tells you, you can sing
And once you start you never stop

It becomes your hidden plot
But you still pay the price for being happy for being nice

But you never stop
Thinking about what you have got
But is it ever enough?
Track Name: Clear View
It's a long way back to the bottom
When you're standing on your own two feet
You take no prisoners
You get no second chances
Business is business and it always grows

It's a hard run back to the finish
But you're so strong, I just know you'll win it
We meet in places
We never thought we'd find ourselves, while
You're righting all your wrongs

Got a clear view of hope in the middle of weeping
A short shot of jump
We were all fucking sleeping
And I wonder
Are you with me
It should be easy for everybody

It's a vision, no one imagined
'cept in Hollywood or maybe somewhere in your mind
I always thought I'd grow up to be somebody
Guess I should have been more specific

Got a clear view of hope in the middle of weeping
A short shot of jump
We were all fucking sleeping
Track Name: Eraser
I found an old chest in the attic
Filled with everything that's you
Between the plastic and the static
I believe I found me too

I found an old box on the dresser
Filled with everything me and you

I never loved you any lesser
Since the day u loved me too

Even the best of us make more mistakes
I wish I had one big eraser
To level all my guilt and push on through

I found it all right where we left it, it was easy to sift right through
I'd wait a lifetime up above the everyday
Just to have this me and you

Even the best of us make more mistakes
I wish I had one big eraser
To level all my guilt and push on through

I'd wait a lifetime up above the everyday
Just to have this me and you
Oh it's all I've ever wanted
Track Name: Blue Ridge Highway
I'm sorry we didn't drive the blue ridge highway
We both had to get up early in the morning
But there's still time on the next drive
If we make it home alive

I can cover ground as fast as the wind will carry

Just staying home don't get you anywhere
Maybe on the phone and that ain't all that bad
I'd like to get back to the drive
Where I can be nothing but inspired

I can cover ground as fast as the wind will carry

And oh
Distance is the only way to go
Protecting all the truth you've ever known
While looking out the window of your soul

I'd like to get back to the drive
Where I can be nothing but inspired
I can cover ground as fast as the wind will carry
Oh We all can cover ground as fast as the wind will carry
Track Name: Under the Sun
You can be
Whatever anyone expects you to be
Bear in mind the road you travel isn't straight or self absorbed
You gotta give until it's your turn to be

You can see
Whatever anyone puts in front of your face
But it's you who turns away from doubt or maybe just fate
You gotta give until it's your turn to bleed

Under the sun
On the right track
Into the air without no turning back

You can breathe
A little light into all that you do
And it's you who shows the rest of us
All that is true
You gotta give until it's your turn to be

Under the sun
On the right track
Into the air without no
Turning back

You gotta give until it's your turn to bleed
Track Name: Sleepwalk
She was an actress
Nailed to her mattress for many years
Got offers from movies to funerals
but she chose to work her fears

In bouts of bad weather
It went from sometimes to never in her diary
Oh the undertaking was either a hit in the making
or an act of conspiracy

Sleep walk through another day
Hang your head and pray for rain
What does it matter anyway?

Papers
Red tape
Contracts between love and hate
Records
Cheaters
Vulnerable seekers

Sleep walk through another day
Hang your head and pray for rain
What does it matter anyway?
Track Name: Minute
We only have a minute
So let's try to get it in it
When you've only got a little time
To get it all in

So you figure out how to say it
You pick the best ones and weigh it
There's a lot if you make it
Count for everyone

It probably means I love you
Or maybe something just like it

But when you only have a minute
It's so hard to finally finish
You only end up thinking why'd
I get it all in

You probably mean I love you
Or maybe something just like it
Track Name: Sleeping East
Sleeping East
In your arms
Never waking from the sound of passing cars
Neighborhood forever after
home away from home

By the wall, to the west, a throne alone
The court you hold is in my arms
Another neverending
Home away from home

Winding down spiraling
We are the only ones waiting for lucky breaks
Holes in the atmosphere
Falling like stars

Tables turn, so does the world
And in a world like this
Two souls can melt like glue
Without a warning in a home away from home

Wind will blow like any day
And if you happen to be standing in it's way
Maybe it will take you back to home away from home

Winding down spiraling
We are the only ones waiting for lucky breaks
Holes in the atmosphere
Falling like shooting stars
Deep in the ocean we
Meet at the bottom
and we're finally finally -- home
Sleep walk through another day
Hang your head and pray for rain
What does it matter anyway?
Track Name: Where Do I Start
I'm gonna sit and write down a list of everything I love about you
But where do I start when there's so much to say?

I love the way you look at me
I love the way you make me feel whole
I love the way you get the moon to follow us home
and the night to fall on everything we know
I love the way you push the city back behind the trees
I love the way you look at me

I'm gonna sit and write down a list of everything I love about you
But where do I start when there's so much to say?

I love the way you look at me
I love the way you let the warm sun through the blinds
I love the way you take the leaves that fall
and scatter them all over town in perfect piles
I love the way you make the time seem like we have all day
I love the way you look at me

Take me with you everywhere you go
There's no where else I could wander
