about

Prince Pheonix Runcorn, UK

Began to write music upon turning 12, Starting a debut album Birth Of The Bird near the time my grandma passed on. Consisting of songs based on real life events that happened during early 2008, with later albums, continuing along that theme. I produce songs that are full of emotion, so they end up becoming stories more than songs. ... more

Track Name: Birth Of The Bird
Take a long hard look at the flames
So inviting they look, I can tell you that they’re not
Let the image burn itself into your brain
Like a bad memory
This was my prison, this was my home
For sixteen long years
But now I get to, fly away
No burdens on my back

This is, the birth of the bird
His voice will soothe your mind
This is, the birth of the bird
His tears will mend your broken heart

From the ashes I rise
Born again from the flames
To fight again by your side
When times get hard
As long as I’m there
You will survive
This I can promise you

This is, the birth of the bird
His voice will soothe your mind
This is, the birth of the bird
His tears will mend your broken heart
your broken heart

I’ll only appear to you when you need me
Just call my name and I’ll be there
To heal you, from the pain that you endure
I’ll be the fire in your life

This is, the birth of the bird
This is, the birth of the bird

This is, the birth of the bird
His voice will soothe your mind
This is, the birth of the bird
His tears will mend your broken heart
your broken heart, your broken heart
Track Name: Why
Losing you was the hardest thing that I’ve ever done
I never said you could walk away; I can’t survive on my own
But you left without asking, never saying goodbye
I need a shoulder to cry on and I keep asking myself

Why? Have I lost you?
Why? Did you have to go?
Why? Do I shed a tear, for someone that’s gone?

I keep telling myself that I’ll see you tomorrow
But when tomorrow comes, you’re never there
How long will it take? For me to realise!
That I’m not going to see you, alive again with these eyes

Why? Have I lost you?
Why? Did you have to go?
Why? Do I shed a tear, for someone that’s gone?

All I have are these memories, but I want more!
You can’t have left me, just slammed shut the door!
They say when we die, we go up to heaven
But you can’t hold, clouds and sky

Why? Have I lost you?
Why? Did you have to go?
Why? Do I shed a tear, for someone that’s gone?

Why? Have I lost you?
Why? Did you have to go?
Why? Do I shed a tear, for someone that’s gone?
Track Name: Dance With You
When I saw you walking across that dance floor
I felt like dancing with the fires of love, at my feet
So I took you in my arms and spun you round
Never wanting this night to end
I let the music take control of me
And invited you to join along
By moving your feet and dancing with me
I can see that you are mine

When I look into your eyes
I can see that I’ve made the right choice
When I hold you in my arms
I can feel your heartbeat next to mine

Feel the rhythm of the beats
Let it open your soul
Follow my lead and let yourself go
I can show you the way

But if the music should ever stop
I won’t leave you to dance alone
If you should ever fall I won’t stop and stare
I’ll pick you up and hold you close
Then kiss you, gently and then smile, smile, smile, smile

I can guide you along
The path that we both chose
If you listen to me and trust my voice
We will go far

When I look into your eyes
I can see that I’ve made the right choice
When I hold you in my arms
I know, I know, I know

When I look into your eyes
I can see that I’ve made the right choice
When I hold you in my arms
I can feel your heartbeat next to mine
Track Name: Smiling Through The Pain
You can’t go through life
Feeling down and alone
When your not, you’re not alone
When you fool your friends into thinking your happy

All you gotta do, yes, all you gotta do is
All you gotta do is turn that frown upside down
And then you’ll be…

Smiling through the pain, because you are not alone

Let your happiness guide you through
And know that when your friends are with you
You’re smiling through the pain
Of the death of sadness

You may think that you’re not loved, by your friends
But let me tell you that
The love from your friends is strong enough

To break through, to break through
To break through the sadness
And then you’ll be…

Smiling through the pain, because you are not alone

Let your happiness guide you through
And know that when your friends are with you
You’re smiling through the pain
Of the death of sadness

Don’t let sadness overtake your mind, be happy, be happy
Don’t let sadness bring you down
Lock you up and throw away the key

All you gotta do, yes, all you gotta do is
All you gotta do is turn that frown upside down
And then you’ll be…

Smiling through the pain, because you are not alone

Let your happiness guide you through
And know that when your friends are with you
You’re smiling through the pain

Oh yeah, 'cause you are not alone

Let your happiness guide you through
And know that when your friends are with you
You’re smiling through the pain
From the death of sadness
Track Name: My One And Only
You’re my world, my universe
You’re all I’ve ever wanted
And you’re all I’ll ever need
Never want you to go
Never want you to leave
All I really want right now, is you here with me

I’ll be there when you fall
I’ll be there when you land
To catch you in my arms
I’ll be there when you sleep
I’ll be there when you wake
To welcome you into the day, baby
My one and only

Ever since we met, I’ve wondered what we had
Was it really friendship, or something more than that?
‘Cause I really think, there’s so much more
The future’s in our hands now baby
The plans are on the floor

I’ll be there when you fall
I’ll be there when you land
To catch you in my arms
I’ll be there when you sleep
I’ll be there when you wake
To welcome you into the day, baby
My one and only

So wonderful, I never knew
That someone for me, could be you

I’ll be there when you fall
I’ll be there when you land
To catch you in my arms
I’ll be there when you sleep
I’ll be there when you wake
To welcome you into the day, baby
My one and only

I’ll be there when you fall
I’ll be there when you land
To catch you in my arms
I’ll be there when you sleep
I’ll be there when you wake
To welcome you into the day, baby
My one and only

You’re my world, my universe
You were all I ever wanted and now
You’re all I’ll need
All I’ll ever need
Track Name: Another Mistake
Circle’s come to an end and now I’ve moved on
Back to the start but where did I go wrong?

Feels like I’ve lost a friend
All I want is for my life to end
But I’m scared ‘cause I think I’m going to make
Another mistake

Did you really think we’d last this long?
Without something major going wrong

How can you live with what you did to me?
Stopped my heart so cruelly
But maybe I don’t wish that I could turn back time
Turn back time
How can you live with what you did to me?
Stopped my heart so cruelly
All I want to do is forget you
But my head, won’t let me go

Feels like I’ve lost a friend
All I want is for my life to end
But I’m scared ‘cause I think I’m going to make
Another mistake
Track Name: Love's The Losing Game
Love, it is a terrible thing, when you let it into your heart
All it really does to you, is tear you apart

Can you see that love is bad?
Oh but you’ll never learn
Boys and girls all over the world
Your hearts will burn
‘Cause love’s the losing game

Now I’ve given up on love, I’ve finally seen the light
Now I’ve learned there is no prize, for winning the fight

Can you see that love is bad?
Oh but you’ll never learn
Boys and girls all over the world
Your hearts will burn
‘Cause love’s the losing game

Did you really give your heart to love?
Or was it taken away?
Never to return to you
On a sunny day
You need your heart to live
Primarily to love
But is it all really worth the pain?

Can you see that love is bad?
Oh but you’ll never learn
Boys and girls all over the world
Your hearts will burn (Your hearts will burn)

Burn, burn
(Can you see that love is bad?)
Burn, burn
(Oh but you’ll never learn)
Burn, burn
(Boys and girls all over the world)
Burn
(Your hearts will burn)
Love's the losing game
(Your hearts will burn)
Love's the losing game
Track Name: Fallen Angel
Guess you want to know what’s happened in my life
A lot of failed relationships
Some that never started right
But now I’ve lost my wings and I can’t fly

Fly Away
I can’t fly up to the sky anymore
The break in my heart has caused my wings to die
Look at me, try to fix me please
I don’t want to be a fallen angel no more, no

God knows that I try and I try
But at the end of it all I do is cry and cry
When I tell a girl I love her and I mean it
It always ends badly for me
I can’t see how they find it so easy
To break my heart, now I can’t…

Fly Away
I can’t fly up to the sky anymore
The break in my heart has caused my wings to die
Look at me, try to fix me please
I don’t want to be a fallen angel no more, no

How long am I doomed to be lonely
Is it really for the rest of my life
How I long to find someone who loves me
And ask her if she’ll be my wife

Fly Away
I can’t fly up to the sky anymore
The break in my heart has caused my wings to die
Look at me, try to fix me please
I don’t want to be a fallen angel no more

No more, no More
No more, no more
Track Name: Always You
Yes baby I know I lied to you
I said there’d be no other girls for me
But I want you to know
It was always you that I wanted

Yes baby I know I broke your heart so many times before
Now let me repair it
I am only asking you
For a few minutes of your time

I know the things I did to you were unkind
And now I’m saying sorry
How could I hurt you so easily?
When I looked deep inside your soul
How could I not see?
The amount of love you had for me

Countless times I’ve dreamed in my mind
What my life would be like
If I had you by my side
I wouldn’t need to worry

As the time passes by
My mind won’t change
So please tell me you decided
What you’re gonna do with your life

I know the things I did to you were unkind
And now I’m saying sorry
How could I hurt you so easily?
When I looked deep inside your soul
How could I not see?
The amount of love you had for me

And I hope that the love you felt for me, hasn’t changed
I hope that in your mind you feel the same
If that is true then come to me and hold me tight
Because it has been always you

I know the things I did to you were unkind
And now I’m saying sorry
How could I hurt you so easily?
When I looked deep inside your soul
How could I not see?
The amount of love you had for me
The amount of love you had for me
The amount of love you had for me
Track Name: Never Knowing, Always Guessing
Do you ever get the feeling?
You’re in a different world
Not part of what’s going on around you
Looking out through a window
Tempted just to break the glass
So that you can be included

Come to me and tell your problems
There’s no doubt I can probably solve them
Because I’ve been in that situation

Never knowing, what the next day will bring
Always guessing, how the hell I’m still living
I can’t seem to find the answer anymore, no

Stuck behind a solid brick wall
Unable to move forward
Is this what I’m to live like now?
Someone who cannot seem
To get ahead in life
Always fixed in position

Come to me and tell your problems
There’s no doubt I can probably solve them
Because I’ve been in that situation

Never knowing, what the next day will bring
Always guessing, how the hell I’m still living
I can’t seem to find the answer anymore, no

Some may think I lead a good life
Let me open your eyes
This what I have to put up with
Now tell me, do you think its right?

Never knowing, what the next day will bring
Always guessing, how the hell I’m still living
I can’t seem to find the answer anymore, no
Track Name: Little Bird
Each day I sit and look out of my window
At the lonesome bird that sits across the way
I can’t stop my mind from thinking
Why he doesn’t fly away

Little bird, why do you still sit there?
Little bird, it’s time for you to go
Little bird, you need to live your life out to the full
So go and find your way

The very next day, I gaze out through the glass
I’m not surprised to see him sitting there
Just peering over the tall trees and the buildings
I wonder what he’s looking for
I wonder what he’s looking for

Little bird, why do you still sit there?
Little bird, it’s time for you to go
Little bird, you need to live your life out to the full
So go and find your way

I see you sitting on the roof
You must think how sad my life must be
To be trapped in my own cage
Never able to be free
Then you spread your wings and fly away
Leaving me in jealousy
To stare out through the bars
With no lock and no key

Little bird, why do you still sit here?
Little bird, it’s time for you to go
Little bird, you need to live your life out to the full
So go and find your way
Track Name: Prove Your Love
I wonder what it’d be like
If I ended it now
The consequences that I would face
Wouldn’t bother me

Do you honestly think I’ll be missed?
Somehow I don’t believe you
Who on Earth would miss me?
Give me a list and you might change my mind

Don’t you find it hard to prove that you’re wanted, in this world?
Don’t you find it hard to prove that you’re loved, by someone?

You say you love me but I know it’s not true
I can see it in your eyes
And when I hold you, you shiver too
I can see through your lies

Don’t you find it hard to prove that you’re wanted, in this world?
Don’t you find it hard to prove that you’re loved, by someone?

The only way that you can prove your love to me is by staying by my side
But I bet you find that hard to do when you want to leave

Don’t you find it hard to prove that you’re wanted, in this world?
Don’t you find it hard to prove that you’re loved, by someone?
Track Name: Betwixt The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea
You feel helpless when you know it’s not help you need
You feel frightened but don’t worry; your faith will pull you through
You scream out loud but your guardian angel can’t hear you
You know there’s no-one there to keep you alive

Who can help you when you’re betwixt the devil and the deep blue sea?
You are lost without a cause
The devil’s got you in his grasp and he won’t let you go
It’s undeniable, He’s undefiable
You’re gone now, taken from this world

You feel the heat as you’re dragged deeper into hell
Your blood begins to boil as your body begins to swell
The devil turns to you and whispers in your ear
You best make yourself at home
‘Cause now your mine

Who can help you when you’re betwixt the devil and the deep blue sea?
You are lost without a cause
The devil’s got you in his grasp and he won’t let you go
It’s undeniable, He’s undefiable
You’re gone now, taken from this world

Countless times you try to escape
But the gates of hell won’t open for you
Year after year you rot away
Burning for your sins

Who can help you when you’re betwixt the devil and the deep blue sea?
You are lost without a cause
The devil’s got you in his grasp and he won’t let you go
It’s undeniable, He’s undefiable
You’re gone now, taken from this world

Taken from this world
Track Name: Our Love Will Always Survive
You were looking for Romeo, I was looking for Juliet
You were caught in a thunderstorm; I was the shelter up ahead
You were praying for your Prince Charming
I was praying that you’d see me
You were looking for a happy ending; I saw mine in front of me

So I took your hand while you were in the rain
I couldn’t find words to explain
And all this time the rain poured down
Who knew this would be our favourite sound
Cause like how the rain falls down to the ground

I’m falling down, and they’re the words I can’t say
I’m stalling around you
You’re all that I adore, you’re my whole world and you’re
Like the sweet scent of a summer morning and the whole world in bloom

There was a day when I thought love was done
But through the rain I thought I saw the sun
There are no words to describe, how we both felt inside
Yet every night I would always pray
I’d see the day when I held you in my arms
But when I woke you’d still be gone
leaving me wondering where I’d gone wrong

So I took your hand while you were in the rain
I couldn’t find words to explain
And all this time the rain poured down
Who knew this would be our favourite sound
Cause like how the rain falls down to the ground

I’m falling down, and they’re the words I can’t say
I’m stalling around you
You’re all that I adore, you’re my whole world and you’re
Like the sweet scent of a summer morning and the whole world in bloom

As the raindrops fall down, other loves will drown
But ours will always survive
You and I we’ve got something going on
Our hearts can see it, our minds believe it, But baby let’s make it real

I’m falling down, and they’re the words I can’t say
I’m stalling around you
You’re all that I adore, you’re my whole world and you’re
Like the sweet scent of a summer morning and the whole world in bloom
