Fake

(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.

A disjointed mind I sit and try to amend Separated from man By a maze with no end And I don’t wanna smile I don’t wanna pretend With the silence augment My soul descent Climb a tree in a storm Remove the smile I’ve worn Curtained aggression became the norm When the prologue is worse than death itself Then I envy my final farewell One foot in the abyss XXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XX XXXX XXXX X XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XX X XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXXX

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.

Open liar

This song entails a deep story of being in and out of abuse in a silent world. It pulls on the emotions through the description of heart ache and trauma mainly between a mother and daughter. This piece illustrates the impacts verbal abuse can have throughout a life time.
