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: Descent Into Despair
Some say, suicide is painless
But for me it hurt like hell
That slow descending slope into
Craziness and that dying breath

Your mind can’t imagine the
Detailed things that ran through mine, like
What will happen to me when this is over?
Or is this really what it feels like?

This is my descent into despair
Portrayed through music
My friend and my only love
Throughout my life, or so it seemed

Some think everything is perfect
But look around and you’ll see that’s not true
People run about in panic
As our beautiful world crashes down

This is my descent into despair
Portrayed through music
My friend and my only love
Throughout my life, or so it seemed

The torture I’ve been through is much worse than death
Let me tell you, some see death as the end
But seeing as my life has been a never-ending journey full of pain
I see it as my release

This is my descent into despair
Portrayed through music
My friend and my only love
Throughout my life (Throughout my life)
Or so it seemed

Some say, suicide is painless
Not for me, it hurt like hell
Track Name: Paranoia
(Paranoia, Paranoia)
(Paranoia, Paranoia)
Shadows on the wall, stare at me while I’m sleeping, sweet dreams
Fierce dark red eyes, oh they fix on me in the night-time
I see all the demons of hell come through the floorboards, around me
I can feel their claws, sharp and dark, surround me, oh they surround me

I can’t help but feel alone
In this twilight hour
Supposedly all nice and warm
To fight the battles of paranoia
(Paranoia, Paranoia)
(Paranoia, Paranoia)

I’ve become so tired, staying up waiting for them to hurt me
How can I survive this when everyone just deserts me
All this has to end, but how can I stop it?
I must find a way, somehow I must control it, I must control it

I can’t help but feel alone
In this twilight hour
Supposedly all nice and warm
To fight the battles of paranoia
(Paranoia, Paranoia)
(Paranoia, Paranoia)

The doctors they’ve done all they can
Prescriptions of medication
But nobody seems to understand
What I’m going through
(Paranoia, Paranoia)
(Paranoia, Paranoia)

I can’t help but feel alone
In this twilight hour
Supposedly all nice and warm
To fight the battles of paranoia
(Paranoia, Paranoia)
Track Name: My Wish
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)
I have so many things, floating round in my head
Some have their reasons, others are dead
Thoughts from my past that want to remain
Infecting my body and killing my brain

I think I need to purge
To start again, anew
That is my wish
But it won’t come true
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)

I’d love to start, my whole life again
Some things I’d change and some keep the same
But that’ll never happen, well not for me
I’ve come to far now, to go back in history

I think I need to purge
To start again, anew
That is my wish
But it won’t come true
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)
It won't come true, it won't come true!
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)

In my past I’ve wished for difficult things
But I don’t see what’s wrong with this
Compared to my other wishes this one’s easy
Someone grant it for me

I think I need to purge
To start again, anew
That is my wish
But it won’t come true
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)
(Someone grant it, someone grant it for me)
Track Name: The Life Of A Balladeer
(The life of a balladeer, is a sad one)
(The life of a balladeer, is just for me)
I'm one of those people who, write songs for everybody else
Never once have I, written one for myself
People think I'm happy, but I can't cry anymore
This smile that you see, doesn't live here permanently

The life of a balladeer is a sad one, that's true
Singing songs and telling stories, just for you
Songs about love and stories about life
Well if you don't mind here's the one for me

(The life of a balladeer, is a sad one)
(The life of a balladeer, is just for me)
You won't believe the things I've seen, they would break your heart
The world has opened my eyes, to give me a head start
I've known people that've died, famous and others close to me
I hope I live a long time, so I can keep making other people happy

The life of a balladeer is a sad one, that's true
Singing songs and telling stories, just for you
Songs about love and stories about life
Well if you don't mind here's the one for me

(The life of a balladeer, is a sad one)
The only thing that keeps me going is the faces of people passing by
The emotions they show make me smile
Every balladeer knows that their songs must have a meaning
That's why I base mine on true life

The life of a balladeer is a sad one, that's true
Singing songs and telling stories, just for you
Songs about love and stories about life
Well if you don't mind here's the one for me

(The life of a balladeer, is a sad one)
(The life of a balladeer, is a sad one)
(The life of a balladeer, is a sad one)
(The life of a balladeer, is just for me)
Track Name: The Painting That Comes From The Mouth
Like an artist starts with an empty canvas, I start with a blank page
An artist writes his ideas down in pencil and I do the same
You could say this is my masterpiece
Before it’s even been written

‘Cause I am an artist, I take pride in my work,
When no-one else does
I can paint with love and emotion; it’s the only way I know
So sit down and relax and listen to
The painting that comes from the mouth

My two hands are my two brushes that dance along the keys
They mark out the lines I must follow
To paint my masterpiece
Every artist need inspiration and I get mine from you

‘Cause I am an artist, I take pride in my work
When no-one else does
I can paint with love and emotion; it’s the only way I know
So sit down and relax and listen to
The painting that comes from the mouth

How happy I’d be if I could paint a picture just like you
The portrait of beauty that you are
You have all the right strokes in all the right places
Mona Lisa has nothing on you

‘Cause you are a painting with pride in your artist
And it really shows
You have been painted with love and emotion
It makes you unique
So I’ll sit down and enjoy
Every minute I spend with you
Track Name: Medicine
(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)
(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)

(Ran out of you)
(Ran out of you)

One day my heart stopped beating,
I went to the doctors they said they could do nothing.
But on the way home, I met you.
When I looked into your eyes,
You did something to me,
And now all I can say is...

You are my medicine,
You keep me strong when I am weak.
When you’re around, I stay alive.
I don’t know, no, I don’t know what I would do if I ever ran out of you.

(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ran out of you)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)
(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)

I went back to the doctors and they said
“No more, there’s no prescription for love.
You better watch how you use it,
‘Cause the truth is it’s a powerful drug.”
And now…

You are my medicine,
You keep me strong when I am weak.
When you’re around, I stay alive.
I don’t know, no, I don’t know what I would do if I ever ran out of you.

Now I’m looking on every street corner for the dealer
Who can sell me some “love”.
See the problem is you’re just too good to be legal,
But god knows I’ll pay the price

You are my medicine,
You keep me strong when I am weak.
When you’re around, I stay alive.
I don’t know, no, I don’t know what I would do if I ever ran out of you.

(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ran out of you)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)
(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ran out of you)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)
(Ran out of you)
(Ooh ooh ooh)
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)
Track Name: Tell Me (How To Love You)
(Tell me, to love you, tell me, how to love you)
We go out every once in a while
But I can never seem to make you smile
Oh let me in, open your heart
Tell me what I can do

Girl, I want you and I need you
But I don't know how to please you
Come on now baby, give me a clue
Oh won't you tell me how to love you?
(Tell me, to love you, tell me, how to love you)

Baby you're like a stranger to me
And you are so blind that you can't see
That all I want to do is learn
How to make you happy

Girl, I want you and I need you
But I don't know how to please you
Come on now baby, give me a clue
Oh won't you tell me how to love you?

Ever since I met you
I feel like I don't know you
Let me get to know you
So we can be together
I want to make you happy
Let me make you happy
Tell me how

Girl, I want you and I need you
But I don't know how to please you
Come on now baby, give me a clue
Oh won't you tell me
Girl, I want you and I need you
But I don't know how to please you
Come on now baby, give me a clue
Oh won't you tell me how to love you?

Track Name: Emotional Fool
I should’ve done my research before I let my heart loose on you
Now my feelings are at the point of no return
I should’ve known that you’d be with someone else
So how come I couldn’t see that

So one, two, here I go
To show how much I care
I’ll say that I love you
And watch it go no where
But in and out of your heart
In and out of your heart
In and out of your heart
Like a fool

Everyone knows that the heart process’ love instantaneously
Emotion flows through your body round your veins
When you see that girl you want to spend the rest of your life with
You tell her how you feel

So one, two, here I go
To show how much I care
I’ll say that I love you
And watch it go no where
But in and out of your heart
In and out of your heart
In and out of your heart
Like a fool

A fool
(Fool)
I’m an emotional fool
(Fool)
Just a fool
(Fool)
I’m an emotional fool for you
(Fool)
A fool
(Fool)
I’m an emotional fool
(Fool)
Just a fool
(Fool)
I’m an emotional fool for you
