    Scarlett Wishes

    Scarlett Wishes

    That’s what happens when
    He sees red
    And bloody images
    Go through his head
    Downed too much warmth again
    And Scarlett knows where he’s been
    She couldn’t stop it if she tried
    And she’s tried

    Flames leap from
    The fireplace
    Not the red hot poker
    No not again
    She really wanted a fireplace
    And she remembers when
    The only red was on her lips
    Her blood red lips

    Scarlett wishes
    He’d turn off the red light
    Gets too hot in here
    Scarlett wishes
    He’d call off the front lines
    And draw her body near
    And whisper in her ear
    Oh, oh, again

    That’s what happens when
    He sees red
    And bloody images
    Go through his head
    Downed too much warmth again
    And Scarlett knows where he’s been
    She couldn’t stop it if she tried
    And she’s tried

    Scarlett wishes
    She could turn off the red light
    Make him disappear
    Scarlett wishes
    He would die in the front lines
    Buried with her fears
    Oh, oh, again

    Scarlett wishes she could...

    Worthy (co-written with Matthew Good)

    Worthy

    Worthy of you
    Worthy of me
    Worthy of us

    Weaving like tapestry
    We’re ashes to dust and I must
    Choose a colour to
    Describe the way I’m feeling right now
    Maybe then you’ll understand me
    Maybe then I’ll understand you
    Maybe, just maybe

    Spinning in infinity
    We’re gold and rust and I
    Must compose myself
    To hide the way I’m feeling right now
    Maybe now you’ll understand me
    Maybe now I’ll understand you
    Maybe, just maybe

    And when
    I’m crying when
    I’m dying when
    I’m lying
    Won’t you hang on every word I say
    When i’m singing when
    I’m grinning when
    I’m winning
    Won’t you join in every game I play

    Fading like eternity
    We’re love and lust and I must
    Plant a flower
    That will bloom in the winter
    And when finally
    You understand me
    Finally I’ll understand you
    Finally we’ll stand

    And when
    I’m crying when
    I’m dying when
    I’m lying
    Won’t you hang on every word I say
    When I’m singing when
    I’m grinning when
    I’m winning
    Won’t you join in every game I play

    And like tapestry
    We’re weaving, we’re weaving
    And like infinity
    We’re spinning, we’re spinning
    And like eternity
    We’re fading, we’re fading
    And like forever I am waiting
    To understand
    I am waiting

With the release of her independent debut CD, me, myself & i, in 1995, Danielle introduced herself as a poetic and introspective singer/songwriter whose style ranges from intimately accessible to strangely quirky to passionately aggressive. The contributing musicians and producers certainly make this CD an all-star project as Danielle had the pleasure of working with various members of Blue Rodeo and Spirit …
