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: Trace
(You put a trace)
(Yeah, You put a trace)

(You put a trace)

Pulse racing high, as I leave my scent on you
A memory that we made together
Skin tainted through, infected by my soul
Our spirits entwined, forever

But as I leave, careless & contented
I know that you, could find me if you wanted

'Cause you put a trace, on my heart
And now I can't escape, the mistake that I made
A moment of love
Lost in a life of worry, 'cause I know it's not money that you want

(You put a trace)
(You put a trace)
(Yeah, You put a trace)

I think about that night, how you moved underneath me
Your body tried to send a message
A one night stand, was not what you planned
I felt your heart break as your front door slammed

But as I leave, careless & contented
I know that you, could find me if you wanted

'Cause you put a trace, on my heart
And now I can't escape, the mistake that I made
A moment of love
Lost in a life of worry, 'cause I know it's not money that you want

It's not money, that you want

'Cause you put a trace, on my heart
And now I can't escape, the mistake that I made
A moment of love
Lost in a life of worry, 'cause I know it's not money
You put a trace, on my heart
And now I can't escape, the mistake that I made
A moment of love
Lost in a life of worry, 'cause I know it's not money that you want

It's not money, that you want, Oh.
(You put a trace)
(Yeah, You put a trace)
Track Name: Maturity (I Can't Decide)
If I told you I was scared of the future
Would you believe me?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

If I laid my feelings on the table
Would you add to the worry?
Or admit my fears were real?

But, I'm unsure of my direction
There's no indication of infection
I'm just paranoid that I'm ageing way too fast

Or did I wait too long to grow up?
Is the secret of maturity
(Is the secret of maturity)
Hidden in the moment we give up & let go
Of the fears that hold us back sometimes
The lies that lay deep in our minds
Or the days when all we want to do is cry?
(Or the days when all we want to do is cry)

I can't decide
I can't decide
(I can't decide)
(I can't decide)

Back when I was just a boy in the playground
Friends were not to be found, I'd be chillin' with the 'dults
My attempts to pick up mates were met with blank frowns
It got me real down, now I'm older I don't care

But, I'm unsure of my direction
(I'm unsure of my direction)
There's no indication of infection
I'm just paranoid that I'm ageing way too fast
(I'm just paranoid)

Or did I wait too long to grow up?
Is the secret of maturity
(Is the secret of maturity)
Hidden in the moment we give up & let go
Of the fears that hold us back sometimes
The lies that lay deep in our minds
Or the days when all we want to do is cry?
(Or the days when all we want to do is cry)

I can't decide

I've spent more time being myself, following my heart
All my friends are near the end, but I'm stuck here at the start

Did I wait too long to grow up?
Or is the secret of maturity
(Is the secret of maturity)
Hidden in the moment we give up & let go
Of the fears that hold us back sometimes
The lies that lay deep in our minds
Or the days when all we want to do is cry?
(Or the days when all we want to do is cry)

Oh, those days when all we want to do is cry?
(Or the days when all we want to do is cry)

I said, those days when all we want to do is cry?
(Or the days when all we want to do is cry)

I can't decide
I can't decide
I can't decide
I can't decide

I can't decide
Track Name: From The Ashes
(I'm not ready)
(This isn't the end for me)

I’ve been burning bright for so long,
Consuming all I had to stay strong,
But now the fire in my heart is frozen in ice & I can’t feel it beating.

There are no physical wounds or pain,
No explanation that I can explain,
I sit at home, on my own, feeling alone.
I know my tears are the only real thing.

It must be luck that I lack to be this far off track,
The word love means nothing to me.

But, I’m not ready to leave this behind & give up the fight, you see,
This isn’t the end for me, I’m only melting the ice to set myself free.

(I'm not ready)
(This isn't the end for me)

The smile I've forced for so long starts to hurt,
And my head starts to think of the worst,
My heart is broken in two, I don't know what to do,
The world I thought I once knew has been cursed.

It must be luck that I lack to be this far off track,
The word love means nothing to me.

But, I’m not ready to leave this behind & give up the fight, you'll see,
This isn’t the end for me, I’m only melting the ice to set myself free.

(I'm not ready)
(This isn't the end for me)

I need to heal myself, start flying close to the sun,
Return on home, back to the stars with the sparkle & flashes.
I'll ignite my life, dousing it all in flames,
Rising up anew from the ashes.

I'm not ready
This isn't the end for me

But, I’m not ready to leave this behind & give up the fight, you'll see,
This isn’t the end for me, I’m only melting the ice to set myself free.

But, I'm not ready, no!
(But, I’m not ready to leave this behind & give up the fight, you'll see)
This isn't the end for me, I'm only melting the ice!
(This isn’t the end for me, I’m only melting the ice to set myself free)
Track Name: Ready For More (When I Wake)
But I know, when the moment comes
You'll be back at my door...

Oh when the sunlight, the golden sunlight
Shines on the horizon, I know
'Cause I don't see you in the morning, when I wake

And when the moonlight, that cool blue moonlight
Floats on by girl, I know
'Cause I don't feel you under the covers, when I wake

If I told you I was blue
And it's all because of you
Would I find you here tomorrow when I wake?

Oh I get nightmares, terrible nightmares
That I can't control, I know
'Cause you're not holding, holding me tightly, while I sleep

And then the sweats start, those icy cold sweats start
When I long for you girl, I know
'Cause you're not comforting me softly, while I sleep

If I told you I was blue
And it's all because of you
Would you still be here tomorrow while I sleep?

But I know, when the moment comes
You'll be back at my door
Ready for more!

Yeah
Ooh ooh ooh
Ready for more!

Yeah
Ooh ooh ooh
Ready for more!
(Take it away, boys!)

But I know, when the moment comes
You'll be back at my door
Ready for more!

Yeah
Ooh ooh ooh
Ready for more!

Yeah
Ooh ooh ooh
Ready for more!
Track Name: I'm Still The Same
(I'm still the same!)
(I'm still the same!)
(Yeah, I'm still the same!)

After a cold night, alone
I put on my coat and
Drift into the cold
'Cause I don't get no happiness from you, anymore

I'm searching to find
The reason behind all of the lies
Oh, what's the excuse this time?
And why...

It's getting harder & harder to smile
I know it'll happen, it's just going to take a while

It's already taken so long to get here
So why am I waiting for next year?
I'm spending too much time, stuck in one place
Yeah, the names & the faces, well they can all change
But I, oh I...

I'm still the same!
Yeah, I'm still the same!

I wear my heart on my sleeve
Alone in the breeze
The fork in the road that I see has a hard time convincing me
'Cause...

It's getting harder & harder to smile
I know it'll happen, it's just going to take a while

It's already taken so long to get here
So why am I waiting for next year?
I'm spending too much time, stuck in one place
Yeah, the names & the faces, well they can all change
But I, oh I...

I'm still the same!
Yeah, I'm still the same!

(I'm still the same!)
(I'm still the same!)

It's already taken so long to get here
So why am I waiting for next year?
I'm spending too much time, stuck in one place
Yeah, the names & the faces, well they can all change
But I...

Ohh it's already taken so long to get here
So why am I waiting for next year?
I'm spending too much time, stuck in one place
Yeah, the names & the faces, well they can all change
But I, oh I...

I'm still the same!
Yeah, I'm still the same!

(I'm still the same)
