lyrics

Lover, I know your arms are fickle now
They do not reach for me in the night
They only seek my silken skin
Whilst to-ing and fro-ing in the light

So the raging ocean is what I've become
I'm over, dragging under, the gushing swell
I'm the strongest forcestress you'll ever meet
I'm an aching, breaking, drowning girl

Lover, there's more than salt water between
It's a broken bridge, we're a sunken wreck
So i'll grow used to bearing a curse in my thoughts
And an albatross hanging from my neck

Now the raging ocean is what I've become
I'm over, dragging under, the gushing swell
I'm the strongest forcestress you'll ever meet
I'm an aching, breaking, drowning girl

Lover, i've been clasping at decaying bones
Our rapture, you cremated and hurled astray
Memories and traces still floating around
Flotsam, jetsam now i cast you away

Now the raging ocean is what I've become
I'm over, dragging under, the gushing swell
I'm the strongest forcestress you'll ever meet
I'm an aching, breaking, drowning girl

I really am the strongest forcestress you'll ever meet
Yet still an aching, breaking, drowning girl

about

Natalie Bouloudis London, UK

'If you can imagine the husky smoothness of PJ Harvey and the rewarding textures of Anna Calvi working together you’d get close to Natalie’s yawning Grace Slick sized vocals and hugely poetic lyrical quality.’
