Meraki

(Jack Gallagher)

Meraki means to put something of yourself into something, devoting your love and compassion into something you work for/on. This song is about greed. Greed can come in many forms but this is about those who have a greed for attention and affection from others, to boost their ego and self-worth at the expense of other people. They'll make promises they won't follow through with, and give false hope and false love to those who are nothing but genuine with them. However, karma catches up, the wrong doings come back around, and the people who done right by those who done them wrong, the effort and time they put in will come back around and it will be worth it.

Enter my mind and find Consciousness blind and my Conscience defined as a Broken compass now I'm Locked in a perception of life Where hatred and love are fed by Shallow minds and closed eyes of those Who bark but don't bite My skies are darkened by the Cloak of death as I Catch my breath so I can Grasp what's left of my Broken soul now I'm Cycling through memories Deciphering my deeds Of love and compassion for who I Planted the seeds that would Feed the attention that they So badly need just to Tame their greed XXXXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX X XXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX

Word pills

By Jack Gallagher


The words of a loved one can have an everlasting impact on us. They can give you a feeling of self-worth, make you feel loved and appreciated, and can be the boost needed when you're feeling down. Word pills is about a boy who felt worthless, lonely and hopeless, until he fell in love with a girl who changed everything. She gave him that boost he needed and he truly loves her for it and would return the favour no matter what it took.

Magic

By Jack Gallagher


Love, a word we grow up throwing around like it's nothing. Then as we grow older and learn its true power, we attach it to less and less things, less and less people. So when we attach it to someone and they leave, we are often left hopeless and vulnerable, with nothing but memories of how magical it once was, the depictions of love in movies we grew up watching and believing all seem untrue now, unrepresentative of how damaging love really can be.

Fake

By Jack Gallagher


A song about someone who is fed up faking their smile, of faking their happiness and persona to be accepted by others and to be seen as ‘normal’. However, it isn’t normal to pretend to be what you are not, and this person has come to realise that. An emotional, angry piece that depicts the harsh reality of depression and it’s effects.

He Loved The Women

By Nick Duer


This is my first country song, it's based on a fools life, and that fool is me. I went 9 years clean, and during that time a good 6 years without even kissing a girl. You have to relearn some things. I had been the drunken crazy guy. The girls went out with me to show their wildness, or upset their parents, or current or ex-spouse. Once I got a taste again I was off and running. Let a bunch of fine, honest, loving ones slip through my fingers. Maybe cause my fingers were busy texting the next victim or grabbing her behind. Now older, alone, I have some regrets. But I wouldn't trade a one of them. Cause I do love the women.
