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.

Me, Myself and I, And All That Comes To Life,
The Creatures Of The Night,
The Creatures Of The...

In The Darkness I Can See It All, See It All, See It All,
In The Darkness I Can See It All,
The Creatures Of The Night

Howling at the Moon,
As it Creeps in the Twilight,
And Daylight Comes to Swoon,
For The Creatures Of The Night,
The Creatures Of The Night,
The Creatures Of The Night

In The Darkness I Can See It All, See It All, See It All,
In The Darkness I Can See It All,

I Don't Mind Being Alone,
I Don't Need You to Hold Me Down,
I Find a Home in the Stars, just as Long as they Don't Burn Out,
They Won't Burn Out, For You

Track Name: House of Cards
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.
Track Name: Hide and Seek
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
Track Name: Lifeboat
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
Track Name: Things We Lost in the Fire
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
Track Name: Wonderful
I Wanna Let You In,
Let Me Introduce You To My Skeletons,
Get Underneath My Skin,
We Can Always Dive Into Irrelevance,
Drive Me Round Their Houses, Find an Open Door,
Walk Into My Secrets, There is so Much More

It Could Be Wonderful,
It Could Be Wonderful,
We Could Be Vulnerable,
It Could Be Wonderful

I Wanna Let You In,
Through the Looking Glass I'll Show you Everything,
Would It Be a Sin,
If I Let You Be My Medicine,
Drive Me Round Their Houses, Find an Open Door,
Walk into my Secrets, There is so Much More

It Could Be Wonderful,
It Could Be Wonderful,
We Could Be Vulnerable,
It Could Be Wonderful [x2]

Get Underneath My Skin,
I Wanna Let You In,
You'll be my Skeleton,
It Could Be Wonderful [x4]

It Could Be Wonderful,
It Could Be Wonderful,
We Could Be Vulnerable,
It Could Be Wonderful [x2]

(Get Underneath My Skin) It Could Be Wonderful,
(You'll be my Skeleton) It Could Be Wonderful,
(Get Underneath My Skin) We Could Be Vulnerable,
It Could Be Wonderful
Track Name: Delicate
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.
Track Name: Friday I'm in Love
I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday you wait
And Sunday always comes to late
But Friday never hesitate

I don't care if Monday's black
Tuesday, Wednesday, heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It's Friday I'm in love

Monday, you can hold your hand
Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed
On Thursday watch the walls instead
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday you wait
And Sunday always comes to late
But Friday never hesitate

Dress up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as sheik
Spinning round and round
Always take a bit bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday, I'm in love

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

It's Friday I'm in love
It's Friday I'm in lo-o-o-ve
It's Friday I'm in love
It's Friday I'm in love
Track Name: When You Were Mine
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.
Track Name: Whisky Lullabies
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
