Strange weather

We’ve known for awhile nowAlarm bells soundedBroken promises falling like ashThick air and grey skiesWhen will we see the lightWe’re dyingWhen we gonna change our waysSet sail for a new dayThere’s some strange weather comingAnd it’s no surpriseWe all loved that moneyBut it never did love us the sameFossil fuels choking outTheir last breathResponsibility lies heavyWater dripping on a stoneRain falling isn’t so peaceful anymoreIt’s a humbling thoughtLiving on the edge of timeLike the last leaf fallingHow many daysHow many chancesWill we let pass us byThe message is clearNo time to wasteThere’s some strange weather comingAnd it’s no surpriseWe all loved that moneyBut it never did love us the sameFossil fuels choking outTheir last breathResponsibility lies heavyWater dripping on a stone

The Temple of Neon Lights

Adorned in the latest trendOur vanity, lost identityDisposed humanityIn the temple of neon lightsSanitised truthComes crashing inTaking a tollWe paid the priceHuman billboardsAdd to cartThe perfect lifeWithout meaningSocieties all around the worldWhere are we goingWhat comes nextCan you handle the truthAs the days go byI see more lifeEtched on my faceCarving its way throughA beautiful tapestryOf broken hearts and sun kissed daysThe story of living thingsUnfiltered consciousnessReal life inventoryOf moments sharedHeart to heartWith nothing to compareSocieties all around the worldWhere are we goingWhat comes nextCan you handle the truth

Song Four (The Romance is Over)

I have no fairytales to tell youWords flooding the pageThe ruin laid bare; there is no hidingThe hunger it grows
Searching streams of a daydreamBeneath the shattered hope of yesterdayIs this too much of a burden for you?I sing to an empty room
And you don’t love me anymoreTruth spilling outNo fairytales to tell youIlluminating the fracture between
It came in a dreamLight breaking betweenI lay it all downNo escape, just release
In the quiet of the nightThoughts scatterForming shadowsDancing on the walls
And you don’t love me anymoreTruth spilling outNo fairytales to tell youIlluminating the fracture between
I sit notebook by my sideWaking with poetry on my lipsThere is no other place I’d rather beUnravelling wonderland
Every step countsAll that you knowComing togetherFinding a way through
And you don’t love me anymoreTruth spilling outNo fairytales to tell youIlluminating the fracture between
The romance is over

Where has all the colour gone?

As always I began this song by writing the lyrics, however when it came time to complete the music I tried something new. Firstly I sat with the feelings evoked by the story within the lyrics and then I sat at the piano with those feelings, chose a random key and then just started playing notes that felt right. Listening intently as one section flowed into the next.

Living On The Edge Of Time

“Living on the Edge of Time” is a powerful testament to Delaquise’s artistry and vision, offering listeners a compelling blend of introspection, social commentary, and raw emotion. From the haunting melodies of “Strange Weather” to the thought-provoking lyrics of “The Temple of Neon Lights,” each track invites listeners on a journey of self-discovery and reflection.
With its timely themes and evocative soundscapes, “Living on the Edge of Time” is sure to resonate with audiences seeking music that speaks to the challenges and complexities of the modern world.

A LITTLE GYPSY SONG

Angelic Celtic folk, alternative chamber music, and indie pop with strong hints of medieval hues anchors Camille Delaquise in a folk-soundscape that twinkles and bursts forth with an almost fairytale charm.

At other junctures, haunting pianos and fierce vocals carry ‘Living In A World Of Silence’ into dark, foreboding territory that is strangely alluring.

“‘A Little Gypsy Song’ came about as I was writing my second book of poetry and decided to turn some of my poems into lyrics (a natural enough progression),” Camille says.

“The music came as I dared to explore a hidden desire. It is where poetry became music and music gave me the freedom to dream.”

...Because I was born a girl

“Doors were closed, ceilings felt heavy, questions were not asked, opportunities were lost – a million battles have been fought because I was born a girl” – ‘…Because I Was Born A Girl’ This lyrical extract from Camille Delaquise’s anthemic single ‘…Because I Was Born A Girl’ from her 2020 debut EP Living In A World Of Silence, unfortunately represents a shared gender experience and has resonated with females across generations who too have suffered injustice on the equality scale for too long. For International Women’s Day 2021, we have made a music video in aid of gender equality. We hope to bring awareness to current obstacles that women face today in order to grow the momentum of what is now the fourth wave of feminism. There has been significant ground lost within this area with disarming language that tells us we no longer need feminism. We would like to, with your help, make up for this lost ground by sharing our stories together. Please share on social media and lets finish what the suffragettes started over 100 years ago.
