drpottsiv It's nice to hear a track from Alice Ava that is more stripped down. The piano is nice and so is her voice.

New song! The first of a series of voice-memo type releases by Alice Ava & friends – with an emphasis on words/voice/songs in their less embellished states. Expect lots of hiss and creak and heavy breathing. A reprieve from the irresistible forces of endless tweakery and illusion of control!!! To culminate in a compilation album, a limited edition publication of artists' lyrics/artwork and a performance. Stay tuned. xAlice

Voice + piano. Recorded in LA, voice memo.


My Eyes

I don’t know it just came out of me one day
Showed up fully formed like a dream
Everyone in the house was still sleeping
I sat on the porch watching everything moving

Her skin was brown, her eyes were green
She laughed and ran right up to me
Tell me what to say, tell me what to say
Tell me what to say, tell me what to say

I was always taught write what you know
So I dug into all the books and interviews
I made her wise, I made her kind
I gave her powers I wish were mine

As the months passed we grew close
I would often turn to her
Tell me what to say, tell me what to say
Tell me what to say, tell me what to say

Asked a dear friend to take a look
Wanted to make sure I got things right
She said of course, thanks for your confidence
We both ignored the change in her voice

She put my story through the fire
Asked me why and why and why
When we were done we were both so tired
I said thank you friend I think we did alright

They loved my girl, they wanted more
They praised the way I got inside her head
I asked my friend wanna be my second eyes again
She took my hand

I know you have a good heart
And you don’t mean any harm
but if you need my eyes is this yours to write

If you need my eyes is this yours
If you need my eyes is this yours
