Emma Dean Brisbane, Australia

Heralded for her captivating vocals by the New York Post, singer-songwriter Emma Dean has returned to her stomping ground in Brisbane with a sensuous, electric new sound.

Track Name: Henry
Aching to be in the room 'cos no one can tell me just what to do
And everything’s going my way a little too much these days

I just don’t know what to do
I just don’t know what to do
I just can’t think enough of you
I can’t think enough of you

Aching to feel Satan's breath over my shoulder
Saying, “Your demise will be so sweet for the delicate minds that you’ve disrupted like beehives"

I just don’t know what to do
I just don’t know what to do
I just can’t think enough of you
I can’t think enough of you

I can’t think enough of you
Henry I, I don’t know what to do
Let us take a walk and talk about the songs that we’ll write for one another
And drink mochas with marsh mellows and make snow people in New Zealand

Should I overcome this?
Have I over sung this?
Could this be my big break?
Oh who knows for heavens sake?

Aching over because lovers say that everything’s ok, when it’s not
But are you different do you love me or will you hate me when, when I’m gone? X 2

I just can’t think enough of you
I can’t think enough of you
I can’t think enough of you
Henry I , I just don’t know what to do
Let us take a walk and talk about the songs that we’ll write for one another
And make mochas with marsh mellows and make snow people in New Zealand
Track Name: The Wind
Overcoming the wind
Overcoming my useless trends
You say ‘everything will be ok’
It is…

Picture perfect you are
Pose with me on a dark but starry night
And everything will be just fine as it is

CHORUS:
I gave it I gave it I gave it my all
I gave it I gave it I gave it my all

Overcoming the wind
To be transformed by renewing of my mind
And everything will be just fine as it is

CHORUS:
I gave it I gave it I gave it my all
I gave it I gave it I gave it my all

And will this heart of mine
Open up and it will be just fine
The day will come
The day will come, come, come

CHORUS:
I gave it I gave it I gave it my all
I gave it I gave it I gave it my all
Track Name: Over-drive
I see life on the other side
Even though politics just confuse me
Am I just so naïve?

I think it might be over-drive
Out of my depression so now
I’m preaching hope
On to the sailors on a sinking boat

And I hope this does not offend you
I hope this does not offend you…

I think that for once there’s not a
Firestorm oh am I missing the point?
Should I become more aware?

I am feeling bad because I’m
So so happy at this time
But I wish I was one of those ‘worldly girls’
I know that he loves

And I hope this does not offend you
I hope this does not offend you…

Could it be always, that I’m just overcome?
Could it be always that I’m just overcome?

Or could it…could it be gold that he wants, gold that he wants?
Could it …could it be gold that he wants, gold that he wants?

I see life on the other side
Even though politics just confuse me
Am I just so naïve?

But why compare myself to those
Who aren’t me. True self-esteem
Is appreciating who we are
And not who we could be

And I hope this does not offend you
I hope this does not offend you…
Track Name: Taking It Easy Again
Take a good step back so you can hear the words
From the rugged readings of your psychic bird
Who sings a tune I know too well, how swell

So she sings you every Friday
And you’ve got yourself thinking that you’ll be ok
To clean yourself and to wash away
Any chance of trying to explain

Any chance of trying to explain
I’m packing up and trying again

Have you erased your thoughts and cancelled out the fact that you’re human with thoughts that aren’t always in tact
The songs that you sing, they blow me away
But why do I always seem to hear you say

Why do I always seem to hear you say
Only excuses to run away from me, from me?
From little little, so below you, so fucking small, do you do you…

Now I'm taking it easy again
And I'm taking the road
And as we speak I'm waiting for messages
From other boys I don't know (repeat verse)

Bvocals:
I remember hanging out the washing
And you said I was a sheltered girl
But you're sheltered far beyond the ceiling
Even far beyond an oyster pearl

And now I'm taking it easy again
Now I'm taking it easy again etc.
