about

"This grown-up pop-rock concoction plays to Falkow's strengths - her fluid, multi-octave, chameleonlike voice and smart, intriguing lyrics. Arrangements are unusually varied, and the production is always tasteful. The whole thing goes down like butter."
- Jonathan Takiff, Philadelphia Daily News

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: (With) So Much in the World
(WITH) SO MUCH IN THE WORLD
With so much in the world And so little time
Why can't we Love a little longer
With so much in the world And so little time
Why can't we Love a little stronger

Why are your bags always packed for the future
When you're still running from today
You got your train rides
You got your self pride
But are you happy on the other side

With so much in the world And so little time
Why can't we Love a little longer
With so much in the world And so little time
Why can't we Love a little stronger

Why are your bags always packed for tomorrow
When you still live in yesterday
We need love right now
We're shouting out loud
Cause we gotta get the point across to you somehow

Why can't we try
Why can't we
Try

With so much in the world And so little time
Why can't we Love a little longer
With so much in the world And so little time
Why can't we Love a little stronger
Track Name: Victrola
I want to swim through you,
Flow through your veins,
Be your first breath of fresh air,
Your ledge in the rain,
I'm your first thought,
And the last dream on your mind.

I don't need another metaphor to tell me how you feel,
I don't need nothing like photographs,
I just need what is real,
I want to walk with you,
Through space and time.

I wanna hold ya,
Let's dance to our favorite song.

I want a Sunday morning with nothing to do,
And no where to go but I'm right here with you,
And the only decision I have to make in my life…

Is to swim through you,
Flow through your veins,
Be your first breath of fresh air,
Your ledge in the rain,
I'm your first thought,
And the Last dream on your mind.

I wanna hold ya
Let's dance to our favorite song
Track Name: No Mexico
Shoplift on the day shift
Everyday feels different
No ticket no future no good sense
No more mistakes

Wrapped like a dead fish
Between newspaper stacks
No mexico no another state no nothing
That I haven't dreamed

Everybody's gone a bit too far
No one's got the strength just to say it

It's a typical work thing
Somebody gets fucked
No refund no sevice no questions asked
Unless you buy coffee

Long lengthy discussions
Just waiting to get a word in
No edgewise no opportunity no nothing
That I haven' t dreamed

Everybody's gone a bit too far
No one's got the strength just to say it
While art, don't imitate life
It surely somehow can persuade it
Track Name: Atom Bomb
You know that it's right
You know all the answers
Talk, talk all night,
But you take no chances

I know there's some light
Shed on both our heads
You take all the night
and hold it in both hands

Right down the middle seam you
Split like an atom bomb
Pages in between are burned
No evidence of the song
No evidence of anything wrong

You play all your cards
While I've got the aces
So when you lose
The empty replaces

I know that it's hard,
But it's not the only
Ray left from a star
You'll never be lonely

Right down the middle seam you
Split like an atom bomb
Pages in between are burned
No evidence of the song
Track Name: It Could've Been Anyone
It could've been anyone but I'm so glad it was you
I couldn't see anything but you put it all right in front of me,
showed it to me differently

Now I could be anything and you'd still love me the same
And sometimes I forget how hard it is to play this game
But you showed me all the rules

You were the coolest guy in school and
I was the only one who knew
Now
All that I want for you to do
Is to let me love you

Now I know exactly what to do
And I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you
Don't think I could love you more

Now I know the last thing you would do
Is to take credit for what belongs to you
You know you could've been anyone

You were the coolest guy in school
I was the only one who knew
Now
All that I want for you to do
Is to let me love you
Track Name: Child of Television
Where are we going?
I'm taking you home
There's no way of knowing,
how long we've been gone.

Don't tell me your whole life's, story because
No one else is listening to you

When you're a child of television

Eyes wide straight ahead
Watch the line that's drawn in the sand
And when, you turn your head
You become the antenna, to the sun

When you're a child of television

Wanna know where you're going,
Wanna know where you been,
What's inside your pocket,
What's around the bend?

Night time is so cold
Watch our breath make clouds in the sky
And while we get so old
We watch everyone else stay 21

When you're a child of television
Cause you're a child of television
You're a...
Track Name: Take Away Wind
Take away wind
Take away Heat
Take in the view
All I see is you

From wall to wall
Open my window there you are
Out on the highway in my car
You'll be just standing where you are

Light hits you
In a different way
At the same time
Each and every day
And every time I see
A different you

Summer is here and so are you
What shall we do?
Ride until we get so far gone?
Or even into the next song?
Track Name: Another Sky
Another sky
Opens the eye
Into the world we all wish we had

A day goes by
Turns into night
Around the world passers by are, holding hands

It could be like laser beams
It could be like angel wings
Tonight, in the light, of you

Into the sea
Flow all the tears
From round the world, they all gotta go somewhere

So in the night
Everything goes right
What if the world just says who cares?

It could be like shooting stars
Crashing up expensive cars
Tonight in the light of you

It could be like shooting stars
Crashing up expensive cars
Tonight in the light of you
It could be like laser beams
It could be like angel wings
Tonight, in the light, of you
Track Name: Give It Up
Glued to that pay phone by the bathroom on the third floor
How many more times can you listen to the same score

Never ever let the opposite get in control you'll lose your soul or
something like that you were told, in middle school

Give it up
Give it back
It won't hurt you none

Give out all your numbers so you don't miss the big one
It's just as easy walking when you wind up in the last run

Never ever let 'em hesitate you make 'em think that waiting for the second beat is pure genius in song

Give it up
Give it back
It won't hurt you none

Round and round the pieces circle
Until they finally…

Fit into each other like they were supposed to you've just spent the past twenty years of your life, resisting peace

Give it up
Give it back
It won't hurt you none

Why don't you see what you can do to find the time to make it up inside your mind and give it up, give it back...
Track Name: Smear
Maybe I could smear my face
Slide down a pole fly over space
Out of the nest and somewhere else
I could forget all about myself

Maybe I could change my ways
Be unrecognizable in the shade
Under big brother's microscope
Couldn't be found I'd be on my own

With the blink of an eye I'll cure the blind
I'll be a hero of the humankind
Track Name: In From the Country
In from the country
By the way of a reccommend
Listening to records on our elbows

And sleeping in paradise
In the shade of silver maple trees
Dreaming about living the dream
It's just like it's just what it seems

Well you're free from your home
You can do it alone
You can be on your own
Alright alright

Well your free
You can do it all alone
You can be on your own
