About
I wrote my first set of lyrics at the age of 19 but didn't get serious about writing lyrics until 2005. At first I worked on a few music collaboration websites but found most people there were doing it more as a hobby and I wanted something "more". For several years I worked with a Danish singer/songwriter which I found extremely satisfying but still my lyrics didn't get where I wanted them to be. In March 2020 I was approached to write lyrics specifically for a short film and was finally able to work with a singer/songwriter who was already established with several albums out. All of my lyrics tell a story, whether it be a story of a moment or a lifetime. I put my heart and soul into everything I write, pulling on personal experience and feelings that others can easily connect with and feel. I don't write "fluff", songs with little or no meaning, no heart, no emotion, and refuse to do so. I hate to admit it, but I am picky about the music that accompanies, enhances, and embraces my lyrics but I "know" what kind of feelings I want to invoke in the listener. I have a catalogue of lyrics that I would love to see given life but I can also write for music that's already written, if it's music that touches and inspires me.

Lyrics

Verse I Numbness cries like soft lullabies Beckon you to sleep Neither Heaven nor Hell For a shell Kept alive by a heart that beats Emotions slumber As though they're under The warm blanket of Sandman's spell Chorus Pain won't come when you can't feel You
Lisa Bennett · 6 days ago

Til Then Verse I I'm the one you sometimes flirt with You've almost kissed me several times Just to turn your head at the last moment And my kiss denied Verse II I'm the one you sometimes search for The one you love to tempt and tease But one day you'll
