#OnceUponATime – Sometimes I wonder, where you have been…

This is my live performance of my brand new single, Once Upon A Time – a song all about regretting the chance you didn’t take, or should I say, the person you let slip through your fingers…?! This video was recorded at Google Australia’s Big Tent event. Stay tuned for the studio version video (released exclusively via Google Play), coming to my YouTube channel too!

I’ve had a few requests for the lyrics, so here they are:

Once Upon A Time

Sometimes I wonder, where you have been what you’ve done and what you have said
Sometimes I wonder, who you’ve been seeing and I can’t help wish it was me instead.
and I know I should’ve grown up a long time ago
but I can’t get you out of my head
Thought I was over you a long time ago
now I’m lying just to be your friend

Oh when you call me
I lose myself in those memories
how once upon a time once upon a time I could’ve had you
I was so close, to doing what I knew I shouldn’t do
Once upon a time once upon a time I nearly had you

Sometimes I wonder, where you are now if you ever think about me
Sometimes I wonder, what could’ve happened if I hadn’t let my good side stop me.
And I know I should’ve grown up, a long time ago
but you’re still running round in my mind
I thought I was over this, a long time ago
but I’m still sitting here wishing you were mine

Oh when you call me
I lose myself in those memories
how once upon a time once upon a time I could’ve had you
I was so close, to doing what I knew I shouldn’t do
Once upon a time once upon a time I nearly had you

And I know its no good going over old ground
I can’t help imagine it’s you who’s coming round
I know I’m no good wanting what I can’t have
but its you
you’re the best thing,
that I never had.

And I know I should’ve grown up, a long time ago
but you’re still running round in my mind
I thought I was over this, a long time ago
but I’m still sitting here wishing you were mine

Oh when you call me
I lose myself in those memories
how once upon a time once upon a time I could’ve had you
I was so close, to doing what I knew I shouldn’t do
Once upon a time once upon a time I nearly had you.
I could’ve had you.

The Story Behind Goodbye (to the ones who screwed you over) – My new single!

When I wrote the song Goodbye (to the ones who screwed you over), I knew instantly I wanted it to be the first single from the record – I can’t really explain why exactly, it just seemed to flow so well during the writing process, that it just felt natural.

LizzyspitThe song is about moving on – from a situation, a person, a group of people or relationship that is doing nothing but dragging you down. It’s only when someone you know, or should I say, someone who knows how to see things independently from what you see, helps you see things from an outside perspective, and in turn gives you the strength to put a stop to it, and move forward.

I was inspired to write it after someone very close to me told me about an experience they had one evening where months of feeling trapped and down all came to a head when a near-stranger heard about the situation and just gave a totally different perspective. All of a sudden, things just seemed clearer, like there was an answer, finally. I think finding the strength to make the change is half the battle, and when you do find that strength, the power you feel is incredible – you feel like square one isn’t such a bad place to be any more – it’s actually a new beginning, a new start – and most importantly, something you are actually ready and prepared for.

In the studioI’ve had such a lovely response to the song – I was actually overwhelmed by the lovely praise and comments that came in for it via my social networks, most especially my beloved Google+. Next week I start work on the official video – which is so exciting for me. Up until now I’ve made all my videos myself, with some crafty camera work and iMovie – so to actually have a director, and a proper camera crew is going to be a whole new, and very exciting experience. Needless to say, I can’t wait to share it with you all.

If you’ve not heard the song, head over to http://www.triplejunearthed.com/lizzyspit to download your FREE copy – why not rate and review it while you’re there!

Lots of love,

The Story Behind ‘If Only You Knew (My Teenage Dream)’ – Episode 4 of my spoken word poetry series

So everyone has had that one crush. You know, the one that makes you got totally insanely crazy. You read into every single thing the object of your affection says and does, he/she consumes your every waking thought, and even those thoughts you have when you are dreaming. You try so hard to force a dream about him/her, and if it doesn’t come, they are the first thing on your mind as soon as you wake up.

I have experienced one of these crushes, maybe once, maybe twice, maybe a few times, but there is always that one you just never forget, no matter how hard you try. So with that in mind, I wanted to try and vocalise something – the sort of thing I would have loved to have said to the person I was in love with, in lust with should I say, but never quite had the guts or the confidence to do so. He actually never found out how I truly felt…

So here you go, this is ‘If Only You Knew (My Teenage Dream)

The Story Behind ‘The Break-Up’ – Episode Three of my #PaperDreamPoet Spoken Word Series…

This is ‘The Break-Up – episode three of my spoken word poetry series I’m releasing fortnightly via my YouTube channel. This one is a little different from my last two episodes, mainly because its more performance based – going back to me ol’ dramatic roots! (I studied drama at university).

So this really looks at truth and dishonesty. The first part of the poem focuses on all the things one might say to let someone down easily –  to try and ease the pain for them on the receiving end. This rarely achieves anything other than making you look like a coward. If you’re honest with yourself, are you really trying to let that person down for their own sake or are you trying to feel better about doing it yourself? That’s the question that was going through my mind when writing it.

Part 2 looks at what one really would like to say – as in the plain honest truth. Yes it’s going to hurt that person immensely  and yes you’re mostly likely going to look like the bad person – but surely its better to be honest and straight up in the long run, so that person is never left with constant unanswered questions? 

As a girl whose been on both sides of the ‘dumping stick’ (lol I totally made that phrase up!) – I can tell you that this poem is written from experience. I look back now at certain situations and think ‘gosh, I was such a coward – why didn’t I just say?’ and then at the other end of the spectrum I look back and think ‘if only he’d been honest with me from the start!’ But I guess that’s all part and part of growing up… 

So, this is Episode Three – The Break- Up – I really hope you enjoy it. Remember to visit http://www.youtube.com/iamlizzyspit to subscribe for more poetry, music and a whole lot more!
