THE LONELINESS INSIDE feat Eivor.

So – a new film and a song to go with it – The Loneliness Inside was written for the feature The Confessions of Thomas Quick (BFI/Film4) and can be heard on the end credits of the film. As the subject of the film is Scandinavian and follows a Nordic Noir theme, I wanted to carry on in the same vein and decided to write a song for Eivor – an astounding Faroese Singer-Songwriter who performs the song. One of the most versatile voices to come out of Scandinavia in recent years, Eivor has the dexterity, gravitas and emotional depth to convey the drama and emotions of the lyrics. I hope you agree ! And of course… the song wasn’t complete without a visual interpretation which you can watch below…

The song is on the new soundtrack release of the score available for download through Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

VERSE 1

I FEEL THERE’S SOMETHING PREYING ON MY MIND

THAT FEEDS UPON THE DARKNESS I CAN’T HIDE

MY HEART WILL CLOSE… FROM THE FEAR IT FEELS INSIDE

THAT TAUNTS MY SOUL….

VERSE 2

MY MIND CAN’T HIDE THE EMPTINESS INSIDE

IT CAN’T RESIST THE URGE TO FIGHT THE LIGHT

THE LONELINESS THAT EATS AWAY INSIDE

THAT HAUNTS MY SOUL…

CHORUS

YOU’VE CRUSHED MY HEART,

TILL IT BLEEDS NO MORE

I SLOWLY FEEL I’M SLIPPING AWAY

I NEED TO FLY

(BUT) YOU’VE TORN MY WINGS

I SLOWLY FEEL….. I’M FALLING….. AWAY

BRIDGE:  

UNVEIL YOURSELF,

REVEAL MY FATE

THE DARK INSIDE IS NEAR

THE LONELINESS INSIDE OF ME

CAN YOU TASTE THE FEAR

VERSE 3

THE PAIN WITHIN MY HEART IS RUNNING DEEP

THE HOLD IT HAS UPON ME CUTS MY SKIN

THE SWIRLING STORM, THAT CONJURES IN MY MIND

THAT TEARS MY SOUL

 

VERSE 4

THE THOUGHTS I’VE BURIED DEEP WITHIN MY DREAMS

I CAN’T ESCAPE THE HAUNTING IN MY MIND,

THE BLEEDING HEART THAT PULSES WITH THE PAIN

IT HAUNTS MY SOUL…

CHORUS – REPRISE
