Dear love, how've you been? Do you still play our records On your record machine? "Born to die." "Nevermind." Dear friends, I found the key To the box beneath your bed where we hid everything. Funny how, don't need it now. This polaroid is fading out. Like a house of cards, We came crashing down And the King of Hearts' heart was never found Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name, But this is still a love song all the same. Hey you, how's this end? I know it's kinda selfish but I need a friend Little lies, can't survive. Hey boy, where'd you go? Has your heart got warmer now your beds got cold Now I know, you're alone. Our favourite song is fading out. Like a house of cards, We came crashing down And the King of Hearts' heart was never found-ound-ound Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name, But this is still a love song, this is still a love song. Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name, But this is still a love song all the same. They say all good things, They must come to an end, They say all good things, They must come to an end, They say all good things, They must come to an end, All good things must end.

I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10 I don’t mind if you take what you need from me You always hide but I’m finding it hard to seek Oh I spy with my little eye some thing that begins with you Oh why are you so hard to find I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10 Sick and tired of playing hide and seek with love This time I’m going to hide my heart Were you will never find it We’ve been here so many times before It’s this game that I won’t play No I won’t no more Oh I spy with my little eye Something that ends with you Oh why are you so hard to find I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10 Sick and tired of playing hide and seek with love This time I’m going to hide my heart Were you will never find it You won’t find me You give it up So easily I’ve had enough It’s my turn to leave I won’t be caught So easily I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10 Sick and tired of playing hide and seek with love This time I’m going to hide my heart Where you will never find it

Lifeboat 04:12
All the little pieces of my heart Flicker as they fall to the ground Perfectly askew just how I like But you don't need a carry to search them I can see them wide on my own Perfectly undone just how I like Save your scissors for they are rusty now I don't need a lighthouse to try and show me how I don't need a lifeboat I'm learning how to swim It may look like I'm drowning But I'm learning how to live I don't need your rescue for I'm okay now I can see the shoreline So turn your lifeboat 'round Even on my thoughts can be cloudy Silver lining's alway inside Perfectly unclear just how I like And i can get up and seeing a sunrise Even in the darkest of the nights Perfectly untime just how I like Save your scissors for they are rusty now I don't need a lighthouse to try and show me how I don't need a lifeboat I'm learning how to swim It may look like I'm drowning But I'm learning how to live I don't need your rescue for I'm okay now I can see the shoreline So turn your lifeboat 'round Save your scissors for they are rusty now I don't need a lighthouse to try and show me how I don't need a lifeboat I'm learning how to swim It may look like I'm drowning But I'm learning how to live I don't need your rescue for I'm okay now I can see the shoreline So turn your lifeboat 'round

There's no smoke Without reason It’s a sign there's something wrong In my lungs There's a poison I've been breathing in to long There's no I, No I in we And there's no you, No you in me Cause I've been burned way beyond the third degree Cause your words are like gasoline You pour on the fire And the bridges you burned Led to our dreams It's just another thing that we lost When the spark turned into a flame And the flame grew much higher And my hope, faith and every last desire It's just another thing that we lost in the fire Just another thing that we lost Ashes fall Just like snowflakes That are warm against my skin You say that we Could re-build this Wouldn’t know where to begin But there's no snow And there's no rain To hide tears To douse these flames Cause I've been burned way beyond the third degree Cause your words are like gasoline You pour on the fire And the bridges you burned Led to our dreams It's just another thing that we lost When the spark turned into a flame And the flame grew much higher And my hope, faith and every last desire It's just another thing that we lost in the fire Just another thing that we lost Chasing, shadows Going nowhere Going nowhere Round in, circles Nothing left to say Your words are like gasoline You pour on the fire And the bridges you burned Led to our dreams It's just another thing that we lost When the spark turned into a flame And the flame grew much higher And my hope, faith and every last desire It's just another thing that we lost in the fire Just another thing that we lost in the fire Just another thing that we lost

Delicate 03:24
The closer I get to your paper heart And the tighter I hold on Gently covered in paper cuts I’m more stubborn than some Your like the first day of winter Everyday day of the year ‘cause your too scared to let me in Never close only near I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate Than you So I lie here ‘till morning As you sleep through my tears You say crying is like running From my hopes and my fears I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate Than you I’m getting tired of trying To knock down your walls I’m blinded by caring But I can see… I will fall I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate Than you So I lie here ‘till morning As you sleep through my tears You say crying is like running From my hopes and my fears I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate Than you I may bruise easily And I may break This is more than what anyone should take So I lie here ‘till morning As you sleep through my tears You say crying is like running From my hopes and my fears I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate Than you’ll ever be.

Tell me Would of any kind. Help me, Cause I think I'm going blind. All the bridges are burned now the pages been turned. There's nothing you can say, Or do, cause I'm not over you. Ohhhhh, I remember how it felt to call you mine. All mine, all mind, I remember how we lost the world outside, The times we had, the good and bad and how we felt alive Ohh, I remember how it felt to call you mine. Tell me, Why my heart is opened wide, Ohhhhh There's nothing left to hide, Do the flames still burn leave the stones unturned. Just look there deep inside, Of you and tell me what to do. Ohhhhh, I remember how it felt to call you mine. All mine, yes, I remember how we lost the world outside, The times we had, the good and bad and how we felt alive Ohh, I remember how it felt to call you mine. And it's dark, I can't hear your heart, And everything is cold, And I'm a little lost inside. Ohhhhh, I remember how it felt to call you mine. All mine, all mind, I remember how we lost the world outside, The times we had, the good and bad and how we felt alive Ohh, I remember how it felt to call you mine.

When I was a child They'd ask me where it hurt And wipe the tears from my eyes Sure embraces, Gentle forehead kisses Making sure that I was alright As I grew older and the nights grew shorter I no longer cared where it hurt All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies There to cradle me to sleep All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies There to cradle me to sleep Scars they heal in time The raw wounds on my mind They aren't as easily fixed You can't mend what isn't broken Kind words are rarely spoken In time I will learn this But I grow older And the nights grow shorter Drowning as I sink or swim All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies There to cradle me to sleep All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies There to cradle me to sleep Sticks and stones they break me to the bone Words they cut they will always hurt me Please be my saving Grace Please be my saving Grace How to answer all my prayers Please be my saving Grace All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies There to cradle me to sleep And all I hear is, Whisky Lullabies There to cradle me to sleep Sticks and stones they break me to the bone Words they cut, they will always hurt me Sticks and stones they break me to the bone Words they cut, they will always hurt me

about

Flame haired Northern Irish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin introduces herself to North America with her debut album ‘Running With Scissors,’ released February 10th, 2015 on OK!Good Records. The 10-track album is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart touching ballads, showcasing Janet’s unique and enchanting vocals, which first caught the public’s attention on Series 8 of The UK X Factor in 2011.

‘Running With Scissors,’ which has already hit Number 1 on the Official UK Independent Album Charts, is mainly self-penned by Janet. It was recorded in a mere 6-weeks, and features co-writes with Newton Faulkner (“Creatures of The Night” and “Hide And Seek”) and Jack Savoretti (“Delicate”), alongside a surprising cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love”. Janet’s debut is an album about growing up, becoming independent and dealing with a whole range of new emotions.
