about

This Album is compiled from works of music that I composed during my time at different stages of Education, that I've gone back and edited for improvement. At the time of composition these pieces were composed to set briefs from exam boards but I've gone back to a few of the numbers and changed little things to better them in ways I may not have been allowed to use during the initial compositional period, so that I can have the song sound the way I intended.

I've now set this album as a tribute to some of Walt Disney's most famous stories, but told from different viewpoints, see if you can guess what each songs link is.

The album is intended to help the listener escape reality for an hour or so as each song plays, if you open yourself to the music, it will creep into your head and help you relax until you begin daydreaming where you'll exist in the fantasy world inside your head.

Hopefully you enjoy these little pieces, My thanks go to any of my friends who helped me out on any of these pieces, You get special mentions on the individual tracks if that is the case.

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: Your Princess (For The Night (Feat. Jess Bates))
Who'd of thought, I'd be standing here in your arms
Dancing with you
And now I feel so comfortable with you
Like I'm frozen in time

But tonight ain't worth wasting, we're on borrowed time
So kiss me right here and let me know you're mine

I'll be your princess for the night, if you promise to lead the way
But when the clock strikes twelve tonight, please don't force me to stay
'Cause when the magic is broken, you might not like what you see

It's a miracle that I'm given this chance to do
What I thought impossible
And now I know, that this time I spend with you
Is irreplaceable

But tonight ain't worth wasting, we're on borrowed time
So kiss me right here and let me know you're mine

I'll be your princess for the night, if you promise to lead the way
But when the clock strikes twelve tonight, please don't force me to stay
'Cause when the magic is broken, you might not like what you see

Yet all of my fears subside when you hold me tight
And all I can feel is love between you and I
I was lost from the moment you asked "will you be mine?"
I looked back into your eyes and cried

I'll be your princess for the night, if you promise to lead the way
But when the clock strikes twelve tonight, please don't force me to stay
'Cause when the magic is broken, you might not like what you see

I'll be your princess for the night, if you promise to lead the way
But when the clock strikes twelve tonight, please don't force me to stay
'Cause when the magic is broken, you might not like what you see
Track Name: Treat It Right (Rainforest)
The forest drips and glows with green
The tree frog croaks his far-off song
His voice is stillness, moss and rain
Drunk from the forest ages long

Take a walk with me through nature
Hand in hand you will see the light
This world we have cannot be preserved
If we don't treat it right

We cannot understand that call
unless we move into his dream
where all is one and one is all
and frog and python are the same

Take a walk with me through nature
Hand in hand you will see the light
This world we have cannot be preserved
If we don't treat it right

We with our quick dividing eyes
measure, distinguish, and are gone.
The forest burns, the tree frog dies,
yet one is all and all are one

Take a walk with me through nature
Hand in hand you will see the light
This world we have cannot be preserved
If we don't treat it right

Take a walk with me through nature
Hand in hand you will see the light
This world we have cannot be preserved
If we don't treat it right
Track Name: Letter Of Love
Putting the pen to the paper,
I form the words on my lips,
Not understanding the consequence,
I write my feelings to grip his emotions

The letter says that I love him
And that I always will
Oh how my poor eyes cry
Hoping that he loves me as well

My eyes cry in the night, cry to be loved
Loved by the arms that hold me tight, in my dreams
What would you do if you were told, that you were needed
And how would you respond?

To a letter of love

With every move of my arm
I am sealing my fate
Signing my life away
Is it really worth the aggravation

I try to think of his face
As he reads my confession in blood
Those three little words
They have the power to make or break your life!

My eyes cry in the night, cry to be loved
Loved by the arms that hold me tight, in my dreams
What would you do if you were told, that you were needed
And how would you respond?

To a letter of love

Don't throw away your words like they mean nothing at all
'Cause to some poor soul they could mean everything
Just give someone a chance to make up for the time that they wasted on you
while writing you this letter of love

My eyes cry in the night, cry to be loved
Loved by the arms that hold me tight, in my dreams
What would you do if you were told, that you were needed
And how would you respond?

To a letter of love
Track Name: Running Away
(Ru-ru-running away, running away, running away)
(Ru-ru-running away, running away)
Throw it away
(Ru-ru-running away, running away, running away)
Throw it away
(Or if it's the end, is this the end?)

I'm leaving the place that I call home
I'm carving my own road
And I've got baggage on my mind
But I can't deal with it at this time

'Cause I'm running away from all of the pain
All of my problems, I'm throwing away
I'm moving on, starting again
Can't tell if it's the beginning or if it's the end

(Ru-ru-running away, running away, running away)
Throw it away
(Or if it's the end, is this the end?)

I'm leaving the life that I didn't choose
Forgetting all those bad times
There is no reason for me to sing the blues
Now only memories remain

'Cause I'm running away from all of the pain
All of my problems, I'm throwing away
I'm moving on, starting again
Can't tell if it's the beginning or if it's the end

(Ru-ru-running away, ru-running away, ru-running away)
Throw it away
(Running away, running away, or is this the end?)

I'm running away from the pain
The pressure, the choices I made
Regret my decisions? No!
That ain't the way I play the game

Just moving on to greener pastures
Trying to figure out where my heart is
Gotta make sure that I'm focused
Time's running away from me

Don't care where I roam
Where these feet land, that's my home
So long, I got my song
It's all I need to go on

Come along and take a chance
Your futures in your hands
You think you got time?
You only got one life!

'Cause I'm running away from all of the pain
All of my problems, I'm throwing away
I'm moving on, starting again
Can't tell if it's the beginning or if it's the end

(Ru-ru-running away, ru-running away, ru-running away, throw it away)
Or if it's the end
(Running away, running away)
Or if it's the end
(Running away, ru-running away, ru-running away, throw it away)
Or if it's the end
(Running away, running away, or if it's the end)
Or if it's the end
Track Name: Tomorrow's For You
(Yeah yeah)
(Tomorrow's for you)
(Oh oh oh)

Holding our shoes
As the rain dances
And we run through the city streets

Amongst one another
They kiss and they talk
Whilst outside the city sleeps

Here, right now
(This is what we want)
It’s just as we dreamed it
(This is what we love)
Today’s for me, but tomorrow’s for you
(Yeah yeah, tomorrow's for you, oh oh oh)

Picking up pieces
Of the mess that we’ve made
We cry as the credits roll

The scent of the popcorn
Leaves us in a haze
From this moment we will never grow old

Here, right now
(This is what we want)
It’s just as we dreamed it
(This is what we love)
Today’s for me, but tomorrow’s for you
(Yeah yeah)

We watch the screen
As our life together passes by
And the memories burn away

Our parting hands
Are the only ones who truly know
How this story ends

Here, right now
(This is what we want)
It’s just as we dreamed it
(This is what we love)
Today’s for me, but tomorrow’s for you
(Tomorrow's for you, Yeah yeah)
(Tomorrow's for you)

(Tomorrow's for you, oh oh oh)
(Tomorrow's for you)

Track Name: Kingdom Of Hearts
After searching for money, love and fame
All I end up finding is heartache and pain
I want to break this cycle that leaves me in tears
But I can't find the source of my fears

Yet all I need to find is that guiding light
Who's shown me the line between what's wrong and what's right
Behind the dark door, broken in parts
But I've lost the key to my kingdom of hearts

My world's been consumed, been shattered in two
I know not who I am or what I can do
I've lost all my friends, the people that matter
But I've got to pull it together

Yet all I need to find is that guiding light
Who's shown me the line between what's wrong and what's right
Behind the dark door, broken in parts
But I've lost the key to my kingdom of hearts

Yet all I need to find is that guiding light
Who's shown me the line between what's wrong and what's right
Behind the dark door, broken in parts
But I've lost the key to my kingdom of hearts
Kingdom of Hearts
Track Name: Cinderella Fairytales (Feat. Yolanta Boti)
(She's got cinderella fairytales)
(She's got cinderella fairytales, when I wake)

I'm still broken but I'm not scared.
My Egos sore but I'm not dead.
You took my life with the words you said.
They keep playing inside my head.

As I try to forget you, forget you, forget you

She's got, cinderella fairytales floating round her head
They happen every night, when she goes to bed
I don't know how I got involved
But I know I can't escape
From these nightmares that continue when I wake
(When I wake)

Living my life in a fairytale
Dreaming of places that aren't real
She only exists in a fantasy
A world created just for me

As I try to forget you, forget you, forget you

She's got, cinderella fairytales floating round her head
They happen every night, when she goes to bed
I don't know how I got involved
But I know I can't escape
From these nightmares that continue when I wake

(She's got cinderella fairytales)

Because of you I can no longer wake from this dream
I'd rather die than live unloved
But you were created from my love for me to hold
The one, true Princess of Heart
(When I wake)

As I try to forget you, forget you, forget you

She's got, cinderella fairytales
They happen every night, when she goes to bed
I don't know how I got involved
But I know I can't escape
From these nightmares that continue

She's got, cinderella fairytales floating round her head
They happen every night, when she goes to bed
I don't know how I got involved
But I know I can't escape
From these nightmares that continue when I wake
(When I wake)
Track Name: Alice's Dream
(I want to run back home)

I'm falling, down the rabbit hole
The image of my home is softly waving goodbye
I'm lost and alone, down here
With no-one around to hear me cry

What am I doing here, should I just give up now?
'Cause I can't decide which way to turn
Time is ticking away, decisions have to be made
But I can't think when I'm without you

(I want to run back home)

I'm scared of never fitting in
Of making the mistakes that haunt me when I dream
I want to wake up, forever
And never be tired again

What am I doing here, should I just give up now?
'Cause I can't decide which way to turn
Time is ticking away, decisions have to be made
But I can't think when I'm without you

Every day I waste, just lying here
Never moving forward, ready to disappear
How can I give up hope, so easily?
I've had so many chances, to make things change
But with my lack of vision, things tend to stay the same
I just want to go back home, I want to run back home!
I want to run back home!

What am I doing here, should I just give up now?
'Cause I can't decide which way to turn
Time is ticking away, decisions have to be made
But I can't think when I'm without you
When I'm without you!

(I want to run back home)
Track Name: Problem Child (Feat. Lewis Cox) {E}
Knowing you, for as long as I have
I can tell when there’s a problem
In our past, I’ve had so many ways
And I’ve used every one, to solve them

I get nothing from you, when I talk you refuse
There's a lack of communication
And the rest is just sex, it's a lack of respect
That to you doesn't seem to matter

Your contribution’s non-replete
And it’s time we had a tête-à-tête

You cause trouble for me, yet you’re loved unconditionally
But lately I’ve been feeling used
Out of kindness, I gave you a home. But the carpet’s getting a little worn
The truth is you’re a problem, Child!

When we met, You & I, In truth I tried to deny
That you were the girl for me
But after sleeping alone, for so long
I told myself not to give up on love

And now I come to reflect, dissect & inspect
The current state of our affairs
Although you treat me like shit, I put up with it
'Cause I meant I wouldn't give up on you

This empty love’s not what I want
When you tell me that you love me, it’s not from the heart

You cause trouble for me, yet you’re loved unconditionally
But lately I’ve been feeling used
Out of kindness, I gave you a home. But the carpet’s getting a little worn
The truth is you’re a problem, Child!

She’s a problem child, but don’t make her your problem
it’s turning problematic/ Emotions all mixed up in the static/
She’s no longer affected by your absence and it’s making you panic/
Cause you know there might be something else out there/
But every time she enters the room you stop and stare/
Cause you still love the way her body moves/
And even when she whines, her voice still soothes/
But still you know you want something more/
I know you do/ But I just thought that I’d let you know/
Love is not meant to be your stumbling block/
You can’t replace the pieces of this crumbling rock/
But you’re a rolling stone so you paint it black/
I know that if you broke up/ you’d take it back/
But sometimes you just need to know when to walk away/
Maybe that day is today/
But time will pass and you’ll want to give her second chance/
You just need to accept that you chose to advance/
But don’t even give her a second glance/
Cause this love is doing nothing but drawing blanks/
And there could be somebody else in the picture/
Love is a potion and you’re caught up in the mixture/
And if love is your drug then she’s the dealer/
They say time is a healer/
And it usually does take a while/
But get on with things and try to smile/
Don’t try and throw more things on the pile/
And cause things to get hostile/
And so you’ll move on and become versatile/
Eventually the pain will be mild/
But the truth is that she will always be a problem child/

You cause trouble for me, yet you’re loved unconditionally
But lately I’ve been feeling used
Out of kindness, I gave you a home. But the carpet’s getting a little worn
The truth is you’re a problem,
The truth is you’re a problem,
The truth is you’re a problem, Child!
Track Name: When Stars Align (The Way To Neverland)
(When stars align)
(When stars align)

You, you put a spell on me
Now I can only see
How perfect we could be
And how it's so hard to even breathe
Without you here right by my side
After all the times you cried
Over people half as good
But now I'm glad that you think we should

Get together, seriously how hard can it be?
For two, to know, when it's time

Girl, I want to hold you
Be there to console you as we sit and watch the skies
The stars fall around us, now that they've found us
They were attracted by the light
That formed when I set my sights on you and we aligned

(When stars align)
(When stars align)

When I walk alone at night
I can feel you by my side
Holding on to me so tight
Even though I know I can’t be right
It’s true
Magic is real & you
You’re a witch when it comes to love
But still, I’m glad that you think we should

Get together, seriously how hard can it be?
For two, to know, when it's time

Girl, I want to hold you
Be there to console you as we sit and watch the skies
The stars fall around us, now that they've found us
They were attracted by the light
That formed when I set my sights on you and we aligned

Oh but I can't tell you how I feel
'Cause whenever we're close the sky falls down
And we drown in a sea of stars
Our loves causes supernovas
'Cause the stars are so happy to know us
The milky way is over flowin',
don'tcha know the way to Neverland?
It's the second to the right & straight on till morning
(Straight on till morning)

Girl, I want to hold you
Be there to console you as we sit and watch the skies
The stars fall around us, now that they've found us
They were attracted by the light
That formed when I set my sights on you and we aligned

(When stars align)
(When stars align)
Track Name: J.I.V.E. C.A.T.
Well I arrived on the scene at a quarter to twelve
The party had just begun
I strolled up to the bar where the 'water' flows
My walk said I was looking for fun
I met a pretty, young girl & I asked her name
But I was talking to the back of her head
So I spun her around, to the beat of the sound
She looked me up & down then said

Ooh, boy can you dance?
Hmmm, If not, let go of my hand!

Well, I jumped back onto the floor
The lights were turned way down low
I looked up to the ceiling, the DJ’s home
My feet were itching, ready to go
And when the needle dropped, the music began
The crowds were looking on in surprise
And my lady just watched, as my body popped
Soul in my heart, Fire in my eyes

Ooh, boy you can dance!
Hmmm, please take hold of my hand?

J. I. V. E. C. A. T. x6

Ooh, boy can you dance!
Hmmm, please take hold of my hand?
Ooh, boy can you dance!
Hmmm, please take hold of my hand?

Oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: How The Other Half Live
So you’ve found yourself a bad boy?
Well, all that means is that he’s bad for me
‘Cause I don’t like to be rushed
Oh when it comes to love I’ve got my own speed

And it’s not like I’m gonna let you go this easily
I won’t give you up without a fight, to bring your heart back to the light

Let me show you, how the other half live
(If you want this could be me and you)
Let me show you, what the difference is
(Between a ‘hotel’ and 'The Ritz')
Girls these days want class,
So why not choose the guy who can give you that?
Let me show you, how the other half live, oh how the other half live

I don’t care if he’s got blue eyes
From what I can see they’re the brightest red
You think he's Gods given angel
But don’t forget that even angels turn bad

And it’s not like I’m gonna let you go this easily
I won’t give you up without a fight, to bring your heart back to the light

Let me show you, how the other half live
(If you want this could be me and you)
Let me show you, what the difference is
(Between a ‘hotel’ and 'The Ritz')
Girls these days want class,
So why not choose the guy who can give you that?
Let me show you, how the other half live, oh how the other half live

But I can’t make this choice for you
You’ve got to do this on your own
By yourself, no hand to hold
I’ve given you time to decide
You’ve taken years of my life
When will I get to know?
Don’t wait till I am old

Let me show you, how the other half live
(If you want this could be me and you)
Let me show you, what the difference is
(Between a ‘hotel’ and 'The Ritz')
Girls these days want class,
So why not choose the guy who can give you that?
Let me show you, how the other half live, oh how the other half live
Track Name: Show & Tell (Just One Night)
We're miles apart, two broken hearts
Are aching to be close tonight
The pleasant words that we exchange
Carry the feelings that burn inside

But I need more
(Just one night)
than just one night to show you what you mean to me and
(Just one night)
Just one night to tell you all my hopes and dreams so
Promise me that your future's mine to share
For all of time

No car or train, bus or plane
Can take me where I want to go
And All I ask, is that you wait for me to get to you
Through burning sun or freezing snow

But I need more
(Just one night)
than just one night to show you what you mean to me and
(Just one night)
Just one night to tell you all my hopes and dreams so
Promise me that your future's mine to share
For all of time

It don't matter the distance, you're never far from me
But our love is one-sided and with you it isn't free
I never wanted this to become an empty wish
We can't just be show & tell, 'cause all I want to do is feel
Your hands in mine, fingers entwined
You really blow my mind & I'll love you for all of time

But I need more
(Just one night)
Than just one night to show you
And I need more
(Just one night)
Than just one night to tell you

But I need more
(Just one night)
than just one night to show you what you mean to me and
(Just one night)
Just one night to tell you all my hopes and dreams so
Promise me that your future's mine to share
For all of time
Track Name: Bleeding Fingers (Feat. Lewis Cox) {E}
Let me write you a love song with these fingers of mine
So I can write you a rhyme to prevent this crime that I'm living in
These times so hard on us, that I can't breathe for the dust of our last battle
And
Let me try to explain to you just what love is
'Cause I'm not sure that you understand what I mean when I say 'I love you'
'Cause you stop me doing just what I want to do to you
And
In this world where men are fighting the bad name that we are given when
The bad people in it are trying to take a girl by force, it paints the gender with a tarnished brush
But I'm
A little different than the common man, so let me take your hand and I'll show you how it feels
Every single time, we open up to you but you make us flat-line

The love I feel for you
Means I just can't help to
Think of you all the time when I go for walks in my mind
And I
Try to write a song, but you leave me lost for words
Now I'm stuck here playing with these bleeding fingers

Ooh, bleeding fingers
Ooh
Ooh, bleeding fingers
Ooh, with these bleeding fingers

Just the other day, I caught you checking my phone
Probably in innocence, an eye on the time or which way the wind is blowin'?
Don't get me wrong, don't mind you sharing my stuff but when I come to call another girl and find her number's gone
I ask questions, throwin' the blame around is what guys do best!
People gotta answer to the crimes they commit
I dunno why you'd want to put them other girls outta my mind
Didn't make the connection you were the jealous kind
Ain't nothing more that I could to make me spend more time with you
I give you my smiles, my tears, all my deepest fears
My secrets, my lies, my heart & my mind
They're all yours to keep, I only ask that you be kind to me
Which you are, when you wanna be
Just the times in between when we're in company
Especially with the ladies, you turn into 'she'-hades
But you gotta believe me when I say
There ain't no beauty contest today
'Cause the winners walking away in my arms

The love I feel for you
Means I just can't help to
Think of you all the time when I go for walks in my mind
And I
Try to write a song, but you leave me lost for words
Now I'm stuck here playing with these bleeding fingers

Ooh, bleeding fingers
Ooh
Ooh, bleeding fingers
Ooh, with these bleeding fingers

I may not be the real McCoy/ I can’t be a gym class hero
But I can be a real wonder-boy/ definitely not a fucking zero
But she thinks all boys are the same/ Who is to blame and what is their game?
Why does she care where they’re coming from?
Who does she bring to wreck things when everything’s moving strong?

You’ve got nothing but love/ but love is not enough
She says I’m moving too fast/ but this ain’t no uppercut
But verbally on this guy I can go in full attack
Riffing on him like AC/DC on that back in black

Rapper/Part-Time lover/ the chatter doesn’t matter
We can be with each other/ We add up like that
Someone fetch the calculator/ ‘Cause I ain’t no violator
He’s fucked up your luck it’s me who’s your saviour
Bleeding fingers on the pad writing bad lyrics ‘bout other boys behaviour
It’s just the way the world goes round
Biggest asshole that dude’s getting the fucking crown
You wrecked her trust in everyone
Now she’s driving her own love into the ground
You can’t come back from that
But I ain’t no doormat/ I’m just fixing what was broken
Just a token of what I lack
And the effect still lingers
But nothing can repair these
Bruised, Beaten, Bleeding Fingers!

The love I feel for you
Means I just can't help to
Think of you all the time when I go for walks in my mind
And I
Try to write a song, but you leave me lost for words
Now I'm stuck here playing with these bleeding fingers

Ooh, bleeding fingers
Ooh, with these bleeding fingers
Track Name: The Neverending Story
(This is your never-ending story)
(Your never-ending story)
(This is your never-ending story)

I've told you countless stories
Of when stars aligned
But there's none like this one
in the back of my mind
'Cause dreams by Alice
Cannot compare
And Cinderella
Was never there

For I know a place
where only you can go

Your imagination is the key
To your never-ending story
So come and take a dive, only if you
Lose consciousness & come alive
Where dreams occur
Your story will never die

(This is your never-ending story)

There are no problems, child
So come and run away
To the forest where it rains all night
In which you can laugh & play
There you’ll meet a Jiving cat
In the Kingdom of Hearts
Where you’ll see how the other half lives
But this is just the start

'Cause I know a place
where only you can go

Your imagination is the key
To your never-ending story
So come and take a dive, only if you
Lose consciousness & come alive
Where dreams occur
Your story will never die

(This is your never-ending story)

All it takes is a letter, inviting you
To tell your story, we’ll show you how to
This is a brand new world, that’s all for you
Just know there’s nothing, that you can’t do
You could be a princess, for the night
Or defeat an evil king in a sword fight
Your fingers & toes won’t bleed because
This is all just a story

Your imagination is the key
To your never-ending story
So come and take a dive, only if you
Lose consciousness & come alive
Where dreams occur
Your story will never die

(This is your never-ending story)
(Your never-ending story)
(This is your never-ending story)
