lyrics

Friday Skin and breath and laughing
Dancing like we were insane
Don't feel the world around us
We are stars and we are shooting into

Saturday, a warm and soothing
Sigh, a blanket wrapped until the
Fear creeps in and chokes me
Holds the pillow to my face

All week long I'm thinking of you
Forcing me to be enough for
Myself, and not want you
To fill up the empty spaces left by

Shit that went down way before you
Stumbled tripped into my line of
Vision, don't forget yourself girl
This is not a race

Oo oo oh oh, oo oo oh oh
Leave well enough alone
Oo oo oh oh, oo oo oh oh
Turn off your fuckin' phone

And throw that Molotov into the
Haunted house inside me, watch it
Burn down, from the ashes, I am
Rising up to meet this life and

Meeting you halfway across a
Lifetime of decisions, and not
Always searching your blue eyes for
Signs that you might leave

So kiss me now before I start to
Doubt, start disbelieving I'm
Receiving the right message, not just
Static, interference, and my

Pressing need to trust again,
To violently leap into that
Volcano, let me smolder
Baby needs this fire to breathe

Oo oo oh oh, oo oo oh oh
Blood and sinew and bone
Oo oo oh oh, oo oo oh I'm not
Made of fuckin' stone

This is a hell of my own creation
This is divine fornication
This is a sticky situation
This is a hell of my own creation

This is a hell of my own creation
This is divine fornication
She be a sticky situation
This is a hell of my own creation

Friday skin and breath and laughing
Dancing like we were insane
Don't feel the world around us
We are stars and we are shooting into..

about

Angie Atkinson New York, New York

Angie grew up in the small town of Starkville, Mississippi. She was always a city girl at heart, but she brought that country-fried realness with her to NYC when she moved there in 2009.

Combining metropolitan sophistication and grassroots grit, Angie created her own unique urban cowgirl sound.

Her powerhouse vocals & pull-no-punches lyrics cut straight to the heart.
