[ms.annegirl original "Selkie's Song"]
 
02:55
In Celtic Folklore there is a creature known the Selkie, who like a mermaid sings to lost sailors, only Selkies sing to save them. They wear skin like seals in the sea, but can shed their seal skin and walk on dry land as beautiful women. On such creature she'd her skin, came ashore, and fell madly in love only to be cursed and banished to the sea. They say off come coast of Wales, you can hear her singing to her land lorn lover. This is his song to her: Says she loves land, but she smells like the sea and she knows what it does to me when she's away... So tide let her come to me; shore let her stay. Lightkeeper be weary; anchors away. She's got sunshine, but she lives the rain, and she bears the blue sky and smiles at the grey... So tide let her come to me; shore let her stay. Lightkeeper be weary; anchors away. There she goes, far off the coast. Farther than I can swim- Where the tow pulls me in, So I'll hold me breath til I see her next, til she comes back again. Til she comes back to land.

LYRICS: I spent most of my youth climbing and crashing through glass ceilings and honestly I had no clue. I didn't know that no was brick wall, all I saw was a narrow hole. I didn't grasp that cant was a shackle all I knew was a had to... That if I shift my weight around. If I held my breath and bend my brow, if I clench my fist, I'll call heaven down. Heaven come down. 4X Yeah, I spent most most of my days forging and finding ways to beat them and honestly I don't need 'em. I didn't grasp that chance was all I needed and all I had. I didn't know that hope was for blind fools all I know knew was I had too... I didn't realize surprise came with new life, I'd closed my eyes. I've come to face that pain was the quick way to change my name to Listen...

[when you're lonely] Saw you there all by yourself tapping your feet. You don't miss a beat, but you won't smile. I'm the corner, lean your shoulder up against me. You don't have to be unhappy, while all the other kids dance all night long you sit alone, but you're not alone not with me... Please, remember me when you're lonely--dont stay lonely Pick a partner on the floor around my height who has my eyes and smile and become one of the kids who dance all night long 'cause they're not at home and their not alone. Dance with me... You and I are the same kind. We bruise easy. So don't fake left, just stay right beside me 'cause I won't leave you lonely Lonely, lonely, lonely-- don't stay-- lonely, lonely, lonely-- you won't be-- lonely, lonely, lonely-- not with me...

ghost jokes
 
02:51
Why so serious? Happy Halloween... LYRICS: Twelve nights ago, I had spoke to a ghost and he told me a joke. He said, "What do you get with a blonde, a brunette, and a goat?" I said, "I don't know." Then he laughed like it was obvious, and he floated through the roof, so I brought down the ladder and I climbed to the attic and I found him chuckling in the dark. He said, "What do you get with two rabbi's on a jet a la mode?" I said, "I don't know." Then he sighed like I was childish, and he pulled the curtain closed. He said, "Sweetheart, just forget it. Don't think too hard. You'll regret it. Let it go. Some things you just can't know." Nine nights ago, I spoke to another ghost and he told me another joke. He said, "Why did the ostrich tell a lie?" and I guessed, "Maybe, he wished that he could fly?" The ghost frowned and said no. Then he asked, "Why did the kiwi play the flute?" and I guessed, "Maybe, he's more that just a fruit?" The ghost wavered for a while, til he finally cracked a smile and he told me, "Hell, no." He said, "Sweetheart, you're not laughing. I'm not angry, but I'm asking-- do you know what a joke is for?" Two nights ago, I was taken by the ghost to a graveyard, and they told me, "Pick out a tombstone." My knees were buckling, hands were shaking, voice was rattling, and I'm asking apparitions, "What for?" They said, I got a disease from chasing glee with reason, and when I asked their meaning they looked so pained with grieving. Then one said to me, "Knock-knock," and I said to him, "Who's there?" He said, "Wilfred." "Who's that?" "He's dead." "I'm shocked!" "Don't be!" "Why not?!" "'Cause you're alive, so laugh it off and move on."

I may wear the scar, but it don't got string on me 'cause I'm real. I'm alive. I'm can feel, and I survive, and I don't have to hold a candle in the night 'cause I'm sure as I know my Lord the sun will rise.

It started out as a funny song about loneliness and turned into a cute song about togetherness because, darl'n, I'm in love with love. So, here's to you LYRICS: I'm okay lying, darl'n, when you're next to me 'cause you tell funny stories and love laughing. And I'm okay cheating, darl'n, cheating everyone else 'cause the time I spend with you is something I can't do without and I hope you can't too. So, here's you to. 'Cause I'm okay cursing, darl'n, if we damn defeat and every trap that's in our path before they snare our feet. And I'm okay swearing, darl'n, swearing off of me 'cause you're the one I want and I swear my love to thee, and I hope you do, too. So, here's to you. 'Cause I'm okay sleeping, darl'n, sleeping with my dreams 'cause they don't steal the sheets at night and leave me shivering. And I'm okay drinking, darl'n, drinking to the belief that yesterdays are gone and you'll always love me 'cause I will too. So, here's to you.

smoke screen
 
02:10
LYRICS: I've live these fifteen years with "I don' know what the problem is, or how to make it go." I've waited fifteen years for "I still don't know how to even diagnose the problem." They say, "From what I can tell, you've got a spell on you like a smoke screen," then I stop listening. A,D,M,M,A,LS--things that I could be. Letters that could guide me if they meant what they mean. (2x) Oh darl'n, let's go down- down to the river to pray for every "I don't know" and cryptic thing they say. Oh darl'n, let's go down- down to the river to pray for every "I don't know" and redundant thing we say. A,D,M,M,A,LS--things that I could be. Letters that could guide me if they meant what they mean. A,D,M,M,S,A,L,S--things that I believed were letters that could guide me, guess I'm not meant for what they mean.

[this is my house]
 
02:58
ms.annegirl original: It started out as another ironic song about hating the sun and turned into a convicting song about truth. LYRICS: The shade told me, "You can stay forever." The breeze whispered, "Ain't it lovely weather?" Then the cloud passed and the sun came out and with a loud and thunderous shout, he said, "GET OUT!" This my house--the whole wide world. If you don't like it take a spaceship and get out. The rain fell through my window screen and it rose til it passed my knees, so I waded through my house til the lightning struck the water and said, "GET OUT!" This my house--the whole wide world. If you don't like it take a spaceship and get out. So I flew to the darkside of the moon and I poured out all my secrets from the soles of my shoes, and I watched fall down the crater, and as I looked into the darkness I knew that I asked for this. The shade told me, "You can stay forever." The breeze whispered, "Ain't it lovely weather?" Then the cloud passed and the sun came out and with a loud and thunderous shout, he said, "Don't lie to yourself."

it's christmas single release
 
03:52
ms.annegirl's first single release from her upcoming album The Only Out is Through (TOOT the album). Merry Christmas! Lyrics: Everything before this day went unexplained, and everything before this day remained unchanged. The gifts and parties ceremoniously stayed the same, and everything that was wasn't what it could've been, and everything that was wasn't 'cause they didn't know then that It's Christmas time. Gather all ye shepherds. It's Christmas time and here is far better than where ever you've been before. It's Christmas and what was isn't anymore. Everything meant for this day had been decided, and everyone meant for this day had been invited. The lords and ladies mysteriously couldn't be minded, and everything that was wasn't what it could've been, and everything that was wasn't 'cause they didn't know then that It's Christmas time. We should all be together. It's Christmas time and here is far better than where ever you've been before. It's Christmas and what was isn't anymore, Anymore--In the time before now, everything that hurt that was allowed makes no difference anyhow 'cause if now is what counts, here, I'm crying out 'Cause it's Christmas time. Let's all be together. It's Christmas time and here is far better than where ever you've been before. It's Christmas and what was isn't anymore.

ACTUALLY, I was shot (with a needle) thrice... #ilovehospital #intheorynotpractice P.S. This is a quick one. LYRICS: Today I went to hospital and got shot in the arm--twice. I never met a nurse known for her aim. They took an MRI and EEG so they can see inside of me 'cause they want to know what it's like. Here, take a piece of my mind. It's like falling on concrete and scraping your hands. It's like running with bare feet on hot ocean sand. It's like crossing your eyes for too long. It's the breath that I'm holding to sing to you this song. 'Cause they say I'm a rare find. They tell me I'm one of a kind. I say, buddy, get in line; You're fifteen years behind. I know you know a thing or two about the things I've been through. I'm sorry for the attitude, but you're the one who's got to prove that your telling the truth. If you want to know what it's like, let me tell you before you decide 'cause they can't diagnose curiosity, and that's all that they've got on me.

LYRICS: I've got four A.M. spells of "Why am I here?" lying awake, my spirit makes clear that it won't have rest in the dark with the rest of me. (Ooohs/Aaaahs/tra-la-la-las) From my bunk, I can see everything clearly. I wish it looked this way when I'm not here--I see deeper, farther in. I see nearer than I ever can with the light on, (more ooohs/aahs/tra-la-las) I can't remember two realities at once from the night that terrified me I was dying to the morning I wished I was dead. All of my problems come to surface inside of my head and my fears sleep inside my chest. Lord, tell me, do you know what's best? 'Cause I just wish that I could rest.

[old bones]

ms.annegirl original LYRICS: Gravestones are quiet. Can you tell me just why that is? 'Cause the ghosts of my past, all they do is keep rattling behind closed doors, underneath my sheets. tapping at my window they seem to speak. Old bones, old bones-- I'm torn by the thought of you and I feel responsible for old bones, old bones--the ones in my closet that I can't keep from knocking. Starlight is quiet. Can you tell me just why that is? 'Cause when I lay at night, all I hear is this rattling. It tears down my window blinds. It knocks down my door. It pulls up the floorboards and holds a light to the casket I store. Old bones, old bones-- I'm torn by the thought of you and I feel responsible for old bones, old bones--the ones in my closet that I can't keep from knocking. Would it make my hands clean to dig up the dirt of the things that I've buried. If if makes my hands bleed, tell me, Am I atoned enough for all of the wrong I've done? Old bones, old bones. I can't have rest from the thoughts in my head. No, I can't have rest til my bones lie instead, til my bones lie instead.

the remains
 
02:18
LYRICS: Here lie the remains of a sailor who's been stranded on the shore. Lost his ship now he don't sail here anymore, so what makes this man a sailor is his heart on the waves that's still blown about and crashing as he stands here in place, ankles sinking into the cape. "Don't leave me here," our sailor's crying. "Don't leave me here." Here lie the remains of a pilot who ejected from his plane. Lost his wings now he don't see the sky the same way as before. He's not high up in his airplane anymore, but his heart still soars up away in the blue where the lightning strikes and the thunder roars that he once knew seem so distant from his ground view. "Don't leave me here," our pilot's crying. "Don't leave me here." Here lie the remains of a poet who just never found his place. Cried in his home and streets and cities all the same way. Still they couldn't care what he'd say, but now his heart don't ache, "Don't leave me here," you won't hear him crying. "Don't leave me here."

ms.annegirl original- Part of new song series under the theme: She is the story LYRICS: This is the start of a story I'd like to tell, but I don't know the ending. It sometimes sounds like hell, but most the time, it sounds like a story I'd tell He had a fine face and he kept up with the times, but he mostly liked to hang outside the baker's 'cause she was his favorite pass time. She waved from the window to try to let him know, her smile was account of him, even if he never comes in. Look, there she goes. She's rolling bread. He tips his hat and nods his head. He knows what's next. She hopes he's guessed. He stands in the door frame. She's watching the kids play, but little baby's got the flu and daddy don't know what to do. He didn't cry a the funeral. He didn't cry when he kissed the kids goodnight or when he lied down with his wife, but there she goes. She takes his hand. She holds it close and pulls him in. They lie in the sheets, breathing: the one thing permitted by grieving. He tell his grandbabies, "Respect your mother. She loves you dearly just like I do. Never mind my temper--I'll always love you. That much is true. Stomach's full, crumbs on the floor. Shirts are stained, hearts are warm, and there she goes sits on his lap. She holds a baby and they rock and laugh and rock and laugh and rock and laugh. The ending I don't know, but it's late and it's getting colder. I must go home.

LYRICS: They call me a dreamer, but I'm not 'cause they told me what dreams are and that's not what I've got. They say dreams will grant you fortune and gift to you acclaim. That may be true, but all my dream gave me was some lousy recipe for lemonade. They say dreams will take you places that you swore you'd never go. They say dreams will teach you lessons in worlds you've never known. They say dreams will cost you strength and time and momentary pleasure, and it's true, but they don't say that some dreams become nightmares. They say dreams will grant you fortune and gift to you acclaim. That may be true, but all my dream gave me was some lousy recipe for lemonade. I close my eyes to see relief from all the places that I've seen. In this tragedy, perhaps the stranger thing was I was rescued by defeat. I am not what I decided; I am free. I am not what I set out to be. I've become what I could not have dreamed, 'cause I am not what I decided; I am free

(Psalms 42:8) LYRICS: I see you when you lie there with the drums that only you hear, the rhythms pounding your head-- I'm so glad that we met. What you don't say when you lie I can feel from your heart, and the ground shakes like the whole world's falling apart--apart. Listen quick before the falling starts. I see you when you lie there. Melodies fall with each new tear, songs that write the writhes that you feel-- I'm so glad that you're real. What you don't say when you lie I can feel from your heart, and the ground shakes like the whole world's falling apart--apart. Listen quick before the falling starts. You bring me gold that you find. I'm so glad that you're mine, so I don't miss you when you lie there. I know you do, but fair is fair.

October is a trigger word--it sets the trees on fire and they burn, they burn. October if you haven't heard is a song for birds to sing that makes the sky start falling, and all the pieces lying in the ground are trod on to make sounds to tell the ground that it will be a while til spring... October is a simple word--makes the whole world turn and turn and start to be something I can't take. October is a simple word, one that I just learned 'cause I've got to leave something, something behind, and all the pieces lying on the ground are trod on to make sound to tell the ground that it will be awhile til spring... I lost my nerve when the world kept turning, so I picked up every piece of learning I could find, left the past behind me, made up my own mind just like... I've got a list of issues. I've got a forest burning up of all the parts I can't use--the parts of me that we're parts of you.

LYRICS: Her name was Listen and she said, Come stay the night here in my bed. Tell me a story about the truth and all the things she did to you. Don't be alone. Look, I'm not living water I'm just here to catch your tears Gather up your strength and Cath your breath to chase the year His name was broken so he said It fell to pieces in his head 'Cause they all called home bits and parts, just the broken pieces of his heart. Leave me alone Her name was Listen and she said Don't be so sorry You're not dead Take off your crying eyes and shoot Down every like they shot at you Don't be alone Look, I'm not living water I'm just here to catch your tears Gather up your strength and Cath your breath to chase the year And if you want me I'll be here And if you don't want me, well, I'll still be here Look, I'm not living water I'm just here to catch your tears Gather up your strength and Cath your breath to chase the year

VOX: Annie McCready Instrumentation: piano LYRICS: I was the saddest girl in Texas, That was the part I didn't mention Because it wasn't funny and it hurt to much to say.. But if I sing it this way I just might be able to feel better, And if I sing it this way I just might be okay. And if I sing it this way I don't have to remember All of the silly things that disappointed me.

I was challenged to write a 70's-esque song to young women about women empowerment, but it's mostly just about hope. Special thanks to my hitREcord community (@pablotorrescostal, @ohwowbee, & @caroleluciole) for the music&image LYRICS: Hey there, darl'n. Don't you cry Look around and see the world is changing all the time. Don't be frightened, child. Tomorrow's on your side. Lift your head up. Speak your mind. Be good to yourself and to others be kind. Remind your brothers this world is yours, too. Be brave. Someday, it all belongs to you. Hey there, darl'n, lift those fire-lit eyes. Keep 'em open, you might be surprised by what you find. Don't you know that hope is light? Lift your head up. Speak your mind. Be good to yourself and to others be kind. Remind your brothers this world is yours, too. Be brave. Someday, it all belongs to you. Hey there, darl'n! Say good morning to the day! Wake up smile'n. Keep on shine'n when they say you're too far gone, just remember what side you're on. Hope says this to will change, so hope to be kind and be brave. Hope smiles when she's afraid, 'cause hope sees tomorrow today.
