about

'Grey Meadows' forms the eighth official BandCamp release from Jimmy Sky.

The majority of 'Grey Meadows' was written as it was recorded, live to camera, without editing or preparation. Several songs are indeed a true free flow of music, poetry and lyrics. Comprising eight live acoustic performances, every aspect of the record is raw and real.

Lyrically the work is partially autobiographical, entirely inspired by real events, and birthed from a deeply raw and emotional core. Each song was captured in a live setting, with reverb, effects and softening applied later for ease of listening. For lovers of unpolished, emotive folk and pop music.

Track Listing:

1. Little Tea Cup
2. Trash Violin
3. Heart Karma
4. My Friend in the Mirror

Track Name: Little Tea Cup
A little boy went to the city
To find what dreams are made of
No one told him that pretty faces
Can't be leaned on
So he made sure to ruin it right
He made sure to ruin it right
In a tea cup
The storm's up
That's life
Shake up all the city lights
It's a tea cup
Your time's up
That's life
Shake your fist at the city lights
A little girl made him a fitting
A lover for a little while
Graceful but terrible at quitting
And colourful kids are fragile
So she made sure to ruin it right
She made sure to ruin it right
In a tea cup
The storm's up
That's life
Shake your fist at the city lights
It's a tea cup
Your time's up
That's life
Shake your fist at the city lights
She found him
Crying in the street
Told him baby it's time to leave
He found her
Drying in the street
Told her baby the light won't be
In a tea cup
The storm's up
Your life
Shake your fist at the city lights
In a tea cup
Your time's up
That's life
Shake your fist at the city lights
Track Name: Trash Violin
'Trash Violin' written by Jimmy Sky.
Performed live to a handycam, then treated with post effects.

The second instalment of 'Grey Meadows', an upcoming lo-fi release.

Lyrics:

All I get to hear my dear
Is how happy you are
Your voice seems frail with fear
Say how difficult it was to throw me out

Like trash with a violin
Like trash with a violin

With every word you speak
It seems you're glittering like summer gold
You look at me and what you see
My works are wandering but mostly getting old

Like trash with a violin
Like trash with a violin

Somewhere deep inside you hide a truth
It boils like oil upon a setting sun
You blame me to my face disgraced I do the same
But mostly we just miss the fun

Like leaves on a dying wind
Like leaves on a dying wind

I can't hate on anyone for very long
Least of all not you my dear
The wish we have is end the fear
For all your joy this little boy recalls
The fall from grace your face would bring to me
A golden hollow meant to be

Now I'm whispering
Now I'm whispering
Like trash with a violin
Like trash with a violin
Like trash with a violin
Like trash with a violin
Track Name: Heart Karma
Well it started with the fever and the green eyes
And the jealous bones
And it never should have escalated further than a lockout
From my home
But I chased you through the evening when you threatened me
With bleeding on the phone
I should have known that you were leaving
But your love was so deceiving
I was a fool

It was only my heart
Only my heart
I gave you my soul
Only my heart
Only my heart
I could give you more

When you told me that you wanted me I knew that it was
Knew that it was wrong
You should never build foundations on a broken heart for someone
Well not for long
When you fought me in the forest it was karma
And inside of me I knew
With your violence and your poison and your helplessness
And noise away you blew

It was only my heart
Only my heart
I gave you my soul
Only my heart
Only my heart
I can't give you more
Only my heart
Only my heart
I gave you my soul
Only my heart
Only my heart
I can't give you more
Track Name: My Friend in the Mirror
Say your hopeless
I could you hold you up one night
Hold my hand in solitude
Be my highest light
But they say you're coming out again
But they say you're coming out again
And I don't know what that means

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh oh

Hopeless is the heart
That makes up these tales and faeries just to get a life
I believe in the jug of love
If you walk a mountain and get on high
Say you can be ever loved
Tell me that the better song
Is somewhere round the corner

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh who

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh who

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh who

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh oh

I feel the everglades
I hear the water run down
I hold the hand of light
It's the only hopeless fight
I hope to never know
The pain that you can show me
As you stare into
Stare into my eyes

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh who

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh who

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh who

I can't make make you better
My friend in the mirror
Oh oh oh who
Oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Reasonable Day
You like to sit and cry
Say it's been hard to say goodbye
I like to remind you
There's someone by your side
To tell you every night
You my love
You are just so beautiful together
I love to ignore the part
Where your demons lived here in your heart
Gnawing at your brain
Until you were almost insane
And you prefer to show your friends
The texts I send
When I'm drunken and crazy

But it's a reasonable day
When we don't want to kill ourselves
And we don't to kill each other
So just this once
Forget forget forget
What we said

I got so much dirt on you
Fear and violence trauma too
You could lay some charges
If you really really wanted
But I hope that we're both better
Maybe work it through together
Friends say we're crazy
Calling it love
When you cracked me in the skull
With rocks and bottles
And definitely I throttled you
More than once
But it's not their decision
Derision is it my love

But it's a reasonable day
When we don't want to kill ourselves
And we don't to kill each other
So just this once
Forget forget forget
What we said
Track Name: This Black Cat
I wonder what you dream of
When the ivy climbs your bed
I know you go to the places I frequent
When I'm lost in my head

But there's a black cat in my arms
There's a black cat in my arms
And it's doing me too much harm
This black cat in my arms

Here I go
Another lifetime ends
Here I go
I give up my heart again
Here I go
Another lifetime ends
Here I go
I give my heart up again

I fear the future all along
Cause I'm never wrong in my predictions
I can't stand the idea of prophecy
There's no logic and there's no meaning

But there's a black cat in my arms
There's a black cat in my arms
And it's doing me too much harm
This black cat in my arms

Here I go
Another lifetime comes to an end
Here I go
I give up my heart again
Here I go
A lifetime ends
Here I go
I give my heart up again

Here I go
Another lifetime comes to an end
Here I go
I give up my heart again
Here I go
My life comes up to an end
Here I go
I give my heart up
I give my heart up
I give my heart up
Give my heart up
Again again again again
Track Name: Cynic
If you asked me what we've got in common
I'd say we're stubborn
The lessons are coming
Too late to live by
But it's a sullen cry
If you can't be here tonight

Cause I'll never love another the same
This is no cliche
Nothing in this beautiful world
Compares to you my girl

If you said we are just crazy
Well I'd say baby
Maybe said maybe
But you don't get romance
You got a cynical stance
And I don't want to speak that language

Cause nothing in this beautiful world
Compares to you my girl
And I'll never love another the same
This is no cliche

So take my soul away
Take my soul away
From troubles
From troubles

I'll never love another the same
This is no cliche
Cause nothing in this beautiful world
Compares to your smile my girl
I'll never love another the same
And this is no cliche
Nothing in this beautiful world
Compares to you my girl

So take my soul away
Take my soul away
From troubles
From all my troubles
From my troubles
My troubles
Yeah
Track Name: Ur Gry Mdw
Hello there my Coloured Hair
Well you should not be sitting
In a meadow made of flowers
That are faded grey and powerless

Tell me what's your story
You are young still full of glory
Maybe tears will make you dry your fears
Give you back your summer years

I hope that I do not believe in love
I hope that I do not believe in love
Or yr gry mdw

You're drinking like you're crazy
So I'll join you for a day
Serve you eggs and avocado
In the morning when you're hollow

As you vomit all your shame upon
Your girlfriend lay the blame on
Mother father almost everyone
Include me in that bitter sum

I hope that I do not believe in love
I hope that I do not believe in love
Or yr gry mdw

I try to hold my head up
As the colours seem to fade off in the distance
As you're closer to me
My mind is almost made up
As I know how bad you're mixed up
But you can't stop what the heart wants to see

Baby

I hope that I do not believe in love
I hope that I do not believe in love
I hope that I do not believe in love
Or yr gry mdw
Or yr gry mdw
