About the Album
Waves is a compilation of some of Sheryl’s earliest songs written between 1997-2002. Waves was recorded and produced in her home recording studio. The album was influenced by grunge and alternative music of the nineties, as well as electronic music of the early two thousands. The style of music is somewhat dark, melancholic yet uplifting. The lyrics and harmonies trace the path of struggle, empowerment and self-love. Producer Alain Ramos describes the album as “…melodic, powerful and profound, it reaches deep into your soul.”
Waves is available now on the online shop.
I want to jump into the ocean I want to fall into the sea I want to jump into the ocean I want her to swallow me deep Answers lie ahead In hands open and strong And when I have these hands in sight I will run towards them I will run into their light, light Dream I want to fall asleep for years And drown away all my fears Of tomorrow, today Water, climbing up my legs Ready to drown me, in my pain Tomorrow, today Dream I want to fall asleep for years I want to jump into the ocean I want to fall into the sea I want to jump into the ocean I want her to swallow me deep
She’s crumbling again And her skin is getting thin And she’s asking him Can you help me? Now the walls are caving in And she’s trying to keep it clear And he’s holding back the walls Trying to keep everything from Falling down around them Falling Is it possible? To keep the walls from caving in? To keep this all from happening? No, don’t you know Go with the flow Go on and hope Falling, rising Her threads have come undone Unraveled and unspun And she’s wondering Can he mend me? Falling
I’ve been sleeping miles away from my body In the middle of the night I hear you saying, “Its alright baby”. But here the nights are like ice and the days are grey And naked branches play melodies of winter haze on me I didn’t open my mouth for at least three days I didn’t open my mouth for at least three days, haze Trying to become the change Trying to become the range of difference I even remember the colors in my dreams I can vividly picture all the faces that I’ve never seen I am drifting I am lifted, further away Can you hear me? Do you know that I am light years away? Only the pillow can translate what I’m yelling from space In the morning, I’m back in place I’m awake, I’m laying low But I didn’t open my mouth for at least three days I didn’t open my mouth for at least three days, haze But I am happy where I lay
And I’ve been wondering Do you still think of me? Have I faded into a memory? Speaking of memories That’s all I have left of you today Since the day that you left me You just fell off the face of the earth And I haven’t taken off the ring you gave me so many years ago It makes me feel I have a piece of you right here with me Not just a memory And I swear you come to me You visit me in my dreams lately And I saw your face so clear But you just kept on fading away And I saw your face so clearly but you just kept on fading away And I struggled to focus on your face And I tried so hard to see you the way I used to But you just disapeared into the distance You fell into the fog I tried so hard to keep you in sight But you just fell off the face of the earth But you’re not just a memory You’re every breath I take You’re not just a memory You’re all around me You’re the sand below my feet You’re the sunshine on my face You’re the breeze accross my skin You’re all around me You’re every breath I take You’re all around me
