    I love puppets!

    I’ve composed scores for 20+ puppet theatre shows from weird and wonderful Avant Garde adult shows to super cute family shows like Julia ‘The Gruffalo’ Donaldson’s take on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.

    Each of them was a joy and pushed me to make new and different kinds of music.

    I wanted to share some of that music BUT… I do like a ‘proper’ song me, a ’singer-songwriter-y’ song. I just do. So I took some of the existing compositions and transformed them into new ‘proper’ songs and what belters they are!

    VERY proud to add this to my catalogue - enjoy!

about

featuring Catherine Earnshaw.

This one originally had a washing machine in the background that I was going to keep but then we did that on 'I will be the moon' and you can't have two washing machine tracks on one album. There has to be rules.




Original cue from: 'Invisible me' for Maia Kirkman-Richards

lyrics

I WAS BEING SARCASTIC

the red rose is passion
the pink rose is joy
white is the innocence of youth
peach is sincerity and truth…

the father is a seed
the child is a thorn
a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
the rose will bleed when the child is born
and again and again as it grows
thats a little bit harsh
maybe a little unkind
maybe the seed is a rose
and the thorn is a rose
and they reach for the light together

ahhh for the light together

ahhh reach for the light

the yellow rose is friendship rose
the purple is adoration
the orange rose is a budding love
the black is everything
the reddest roses bloom in darkness
the shadows make the senses sing now

the father is a seed
the child is a thorn
a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
the rose will bleed when the child is born
and again and again as it grows
that’s a little bit harsh
maybe a little unkind
maybe the seed is a rose
and the thorn is a rose
and they reach for the light together
