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: The Man Behind The Music
There's a shadow of a person, locked inside of me
And He's fighting to get out
How His heart longs, to see the light of day
But I can't, break the lock

Too scared of the consequence He'll face
And the wounds that He'll obtain
This cause that He's fighting for
With no glory to His name

This is the real me
The man behind the music
Hidden behind a mask, shrouded in the dark
Living life in the shadows
This is the true me
All frightened and afraid
Where do i go now, now that I am changed
I have nothing to hide behind anymore

It's my life and my love that I'll lose
If I'm defeated in battle
No second chances or ways to confuse
No I ain't coming back but I won't give up the fight

This is the real me
The man behind the music
Hidden behind a mask, shrouded in the dark
Living life in the shadows
This is the true me
All frightened and afraid
Where do i go now, now that I am changed
I have nothing to hide behind anymore

I have no where to run and no way of getting there if I did
And I seem to have nowhere that I belong
I don't want to have to give up again
Always hiding behind a song

This is the real me
The man behind the music
Hidden behind a mask, shrouded in the dark
Living life in the shadows
This is the true me
All frightened and afraid
Where do i go now, now that I am changed
I have nothing to hide behind anymore
Track Name: Close At Hand
This distance, I can't take it anymore
So far away from everything, stranded on the shore
Baby you can find me if you try
Just reach out your hand and feel me holding tight

Use my voice as the beacon which pulls you close to me
I'll be your guiding light in the shadows
Just tune your heart to me
And you will surely see
That I'm close at hand

Loneliness, not like anything you've experienced
It will bring you to your knees so you can't breathe
I need you now, I need you more than ever
Tell me you can hear me
Calling out!

Use my voice as the beacon which pulls you close to me
I'll be your guiding light in the shadows
Just tune your heart to me
And you will surely see
That I'm close at hand

I long to be held in your arms
Promise me that when you find me
You'll never let me go

Use my voice as the beacon which pulls you close to me
I'll be your guiding light in the shadows
Just tune your heart to me
And you will surely see
That I'm close at hand
Track Name: Just Want To Smile
I used to think, that life was so sad
But now I've found my reason for living
Oo oo, yeah.
I've been alone, for most of my life,
But now I have some one to lean on

And I just want to smile, for once in my life
And I don't really care if what I'm feeling is right
I know I'm lucky, to be with you
I'm so happy, do you feel it too
I just want to smile and I would not change a thing
(I would not change a thing about you)
(I would not change a thing about you)

I used to be a wayward wanderer
Walking down my path alone
Hmmm hmm
But each of us needs that person
Who can pull them through the pain
Will you be the one for me

I just want to smile, for once in my life
And I don't really care if what I'm feeling is right
I know I'm lucky, to be with you
Oh but I'm happy, do you feel it too
I just want to smile and I would not change a thing
(I would not change a thing about you)
(I would not change a thing about you)

Oh babe you know it's true, you put a smile on my face
Like no one else can do
Can't wait till we're alone, the things I'll do to you
Right now your heart's my home

And I would not change a thing
I would not change a thing
And I would not change a thing about you
Track Name: Different Kind Of Love
For a while now, I've been wanting a different life than this
But I hide away my true identity, locked in the closet

(But now)Now I cannot hide
(I can't hide) I'll face the light
(Face the light) I am not ashamed
(Not ashamed) Yes you heard me right

Here I am, this is me, I've made my choice of who I'm going to be
Now I look for love in the arms of another and you just don't compare
To this different kind of love
oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh different kind of love
oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh different kind of love

I never thought that I could fall in love with you
But I'm falling more every single day
I feel comfortable saying those three words to you
And I can't see myself changing

(But now)Now I cannot hide
(I can't hide) I'll face the light
(Face the light) I am not ashamed
(Not ashamed) Yes you heard me right

Here I am, this is me, I've made my choice of who I'm going to be
Now I look for love in the arms of another and you just don't compare
To this different kind of love
oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh different kind of love
oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh different kind of love

I've tried other types of love before
But this is the one that feels right
I can't remember a time when I have been happier
Than the way I felt with you last night
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Here I am, this is me, I've made my choice of who I'm going to be
Now I look for love in the arms of another and you just don't compare
To this different kind of love
oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh different kind of love
oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh different kind of love

Track Name: You Can Be What You Want To Be
You don't let anyone push you around
Because you've already set out your life
Got a plan written on a piece of paper
Locked up in a box, in the back of your mind

I think you know the secret
Those who plan will go far

You can be what you want to be, if you put your mind to it
You'll have people trying to put you down, but don't let them do it
If you're strong, wise and proud of yourself
You will find the way, oh yeah, 'cause I believe in you

You have made a serious choice
But don't worry there are others like you
It's the friends in life that we love
That'll guide us through

I think you know the secret
Those who love will go far

You can be what you want to be, if you put your mind to it
You'll have people trying to put you down, but don't let them do it
If you're strong, wise and proud of yourself
You will find the way, oh yeah, 'cause I believe in you

You don't know how much you mean to me
Or how much I am praying for you to succeed
You're my friend and I will love you forever
You'll find the way it's true
Cause I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you
Track Name: Would You Cry?
(W-w-would you cry?)
(W-w-would you cry?)

If I was left alone from the start would it hurt this much?
When you came to reach for my hand
Should I have pulled away to avoid your touch?
I believed your words and I fell again
Now I'm left to wonder if you can even feel
(Would you cry?)
If you can feel anything at all
(Would you cry?)

My touch, the embraces, my heart breaking as I'm frozen in place
Can you tell me would you feel it, would you?

If I was to leave today would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I fell in a hole and was lost would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I was lying in a hospital bed, bleeding from my head
Would you cry? (W-w-would you cry?)
If i was to sleep forever would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I was gone never to return would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If i was gonna end it all today
Slit my throat and say: "I'm never coming back" (Would you cry?)
Would you cry?

(W-w-would you cry?)
(W-w-would you cry?)

Standing in front of you, am I so invisible?
Becoming a ghost of your past
Pale and cold how I miss your warmth
Can't you feel me, reaching for your cold and shadowed face?
Can't you feel anything at all?!

My touch, the embraces, my heart breaking as I'm frozen in place
Can you tell me would you feel it, would you?

If I was to leave today would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I fell in a hole and was lost would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I was lying in a hospital bed, bleeding from my head
Would you cry? (W-w-would you cry?)
If i was to sleep forever would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I was gone never to return would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If i was gonna end it all today
Slit my throat and say: "I'm never coming back" (Would you cry?)
Would you cry?

Your porcelain doll, my face frozen within these tears
How long has it been, since you noticed my fears
Cracked and broken, I'm losing my mind
I don't think I can stay like this till the end of time

If I was to leave today would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I fell in a hole and was lost would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I was lying in a hospital bed, bleeding from my head
Would you cry? (W-w-would you cry?)
If i was to sleep forever would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If I was gone never to return would you cry? (Would you cry?)
If i was gonna end it all today
Slit my throat and say: "I'm never coming back" (Would you cry?)
"I'm never coming back" (Would you cry?)
"No, I'm never coming back" (Would you cry?)
Would you cry?

Would you cry? (Would you cry?)
Would you cry? (Would you cry?)
Would you cry? (Would you cry?)
Would you cry?
Track Name: Just Let Me Go
(Just let me go, just let me go)
I always promised that I keep you safe, Locked in my memory
(Just let me go)
But lately I've been thinking you're putting too much strain on me

(Just let me go)
And I'm starting to hate all the little things
That prevent me from moving on from you

If you really wanted me, you'd have made up your mind
(You'd have made up your mind)
I'm not the type of person, to be held behind
(To be held behind)
Long ago I decided, that I'd had enough
(I decided I'd had enough)
And it's not fair, just not fair that you're still holding on
Just let me go.

(Just let me go, just let me go)
I've felt a recent change in me, that I cannot define
(Just let me go)
The way you are acting now, is way out of line

(Just let me go)
And I'm starting to hate all the little things
That prevent me from moving on from you

If you really wanted me, you'd have made up your mind
(You'd have made up your mind)
I'm not the type of person, to be held behind
(To be held behind)
Long ago I decided, that I'd had enough
(I decided I'd had enough)
And it's not fair, just not fair that you're still holding on
Just let me go.

There's no easy way to say this
But you're no longer the one I adore
I've had a sudden change of heart
But you never really cared at all, cause...

If you really wanted me, you'd have made up your mind
(You'd have made up your mind)
I'm not the type of person, to be held behind
(To be held behind)
Long ago I decided, that I'd had enough
(I decided I'd had enough)
And it's not fair, just not fair that you're still holding on
Just let me go.

(Just let me go, just let me go)
Track Name: Dream Walker
Well you came to me, when I was weak
And you found a broken heart (Dream walker)
With the words you spoke, you gave me hope
That I could move on

(Come with me)
So I take your hand
And hold you close
(Come with me)
So that I won't have to face the world alone

Let me show you what your dreams contain
You'll be surprised
Let me take you beyond the layer of stars
Just open your eyes
I won't let you down, if you put faith in me
Just lend me your heart and I'll show you your fantasy

(Dream walker, come with me)
(Dream walker, kiss me)
(Dream walker, kiss me)
(Dream walker)

Well your kiss is like the summer breeze on my face
When I'm awake
But when I'm asleep and softly dreaming
I see you with me in this place

(Come with me)
So I take your hand
And hold you close
(Come with me)
So that I won't have to face the world alone

Let me show you what your dreams contain
You'll be surprised
Let me take you beyond the layer of stars
Just open your eyes
I won't let you down, if you put faith in me
Just lend me your heart and I'll show you your fantasy

I walk hand in hand with you in my mind
It feels so easy
But when morning comes I'm going to have to wake up
So I fly with scarlet wings, holding you in my arms
Never letting go...(Dream walker)

Let me show you what your dreams contain
You'll be surprised
Let me take you beyond the layer of stars
Just open your eyes
I won't let you down, if you put faith in me
Just lend me your heart and I'll show you your fantasy (Dream walker)

Let me show you what your dreams contain
You'll be surprised
Let me take you beyond the layer of stars
Just open your eyes (Open your eyes)
I won't let you down, if you put faith in me
Just lend me your heart and I'll show you your fantasy
Track Name: The Meaning Of No
You need to learn
The meaning of no
You need to learn

When You break my heart, that I can take
But when You target my friends for Your evil games
That's not right and it makes me believe
That You're just a fool to love

Did anybody tell You the meaning of no?
And that You can't always have what You want
I hope someone hurts You
And then You'll get what You deserve
'Cause You don't deserve anyone

You need to learn
The meaning of no
You need to learn

I'll keep a watch, from the corner of my eye
Over You and my friend to make sure that You try
To shower them with the love that You kept
Hidden away from me

Did anybody tell You the meaning of no?
And that You can't always have what You want
I hope someone hurts You
And then You'll get what You deserve
'Cause You don't deserve anyone

For the way that You hurt me I will never forget You
And that You can hold me to
We could of made each other happy
If only You'd of noticed I was there for You
But You had Your reasons for turning me away
So I hope You get what's coming to You

Did anybody tell You the meaning of no?
And that You can't always have what You want
I hope someone hurts You
And then You'll get what You deserve
'Cause You don't deserve anyone

You need to learn
The meaning of no
You need to learn
The meaning of no
You need to, you need to learn
You need to, you need to learn
The meaning of no
Track Name: Victorian Lover
(Sepia tone my life)
(Sepia tone my life, sepia tone my life)
You turn off the lights and I'll light up a candle
Tonight we'll lay down by the fire
We don't have to leave this house until the winter's over
'Cause all I need is by my side

This year let's do something different together
(Sepia tone my life, sepia tone my life)

Take me back through time, a hundred years or more
Let me see life through your eyes
Sepia tone the life I once knew'cause I want to lift this disguise
It's like looking through a mirror at the world that came before
Just break the glass, take my hand, try to help me understand
The life that we have planned for me and my victorian lover

(Sepia tone my life)
(Sepia tone my life, sepia tone my life)
As we watch the snowflakes fall
Outside our window
I think about all those years before
And how nothing's changed at all

This year let's do something different together
(Sepia tone my life, sepia tone my life)

Take me back through time, a hundred years or more
Let me see life through your eyes
Sepia tone the life I once knew 'cause I want to lift this disguise
It's like looking through a mirror at the world that came before
Just break the glass, take my hand, try to help me understand
The life that we have planned for me and my victorian lover

But like a wish on Christmas morn, you disappear with the snow
And leave that world, that you used, empty and alone
Another year's over, yet everything's the same
Next year will you remember my name?

Take me back through time, a hundred years or more
And let me see life through your eyes
Sepia tone the life I once knew 'cause I want to lift this disguise
It's like looking through a mirror at the world that came before
Just break the glass, take my hand, try to help me understand
The life that we had planned for me and my victorian lover

Victorian lover
(Sepia tone my life)
Sepia tone my life, sepia tone my life
(Sepia tone my life, sepia tone my life)
My victorian lover
Track Name: One In A Million
(Maybe you're, one in a million)
(Maybe you're, one in a million)
(One in a million, one in a million)

People search for most of their lives
But lack the passion to want the reason why
The person they are trying to find
Makes them feel this way

Are our destinies predefined?
And do men only have a one track mind?
If women are from Venus, are men from Mars?
And is it only blood flowing through our hearts?

If reproduction is the aim of the game
Let's change the rules tonight

How can you play with my mind
How do you control my emotions
When you're not a God
Maybe you're one in a million
When you got out of my bed
And left me here all alone
You took a piece of my heart
Baby you're one in a million

(Maybe you're, one in a million)
(Maybe you're, one in a million)

I'll only lose it this one time
It's pretty clear, I've made up my mind
Please wake me up I think I'm dreaming
How else am I right here with you?

To you I'd give my heart and soul
And in return you'd give me the world
Together we'd be unstoppable
However, it's impossible

If reproduction is the aim of the game
Let's change the rules tonight

How can you play with my mind
How do you control my emotions
When you're not a God
Maybe you're one in a million
When you got out of my bed
And left me here all alone
You took a piece of my heart
Baby you're one in a million

(Maybe you're, one in a million)
(Maybe you're, one in a million)

No matter where I go, you'll always be right here
I'll never forget that night with you
And though there's someone else, for me you were the one
And will always be, one in a million

If reproduction is the aim of the game
Let's change the rules tonight

How can you play with my mind
How do you control my emotions
When you're not a God
Maybe you're one in a million
When you got out of my bed
And left me here all alone
You took a piece of my heart
Baby you're one in a million

(Maybe you're, one in a million)
(Maybe you're, one in a million)
