about

Matt Tinsley London, UK

Matt’s first independent release, an EP titled Before The World Falls Apart, showcased his natural songwriting ability, with two of his songs becoming finalists in the 2011 UK Songwriting Contest. His second EP, Water & Stone, is more ambitious in song and recording, but continues in the same vain with four new songs that show a songwriter growing and developing in form and confidence. ... more

Track Name: The Hardest Part
Once I left my home to do what's right
Chased my dreams and found a broken heart
I tried to love her
I tried to fix her up
But still she went and broke down
So I gave her up

Sweet November cold mixes with dark
Without the one I love I've found I'm lost
I gave up on the question
I gave up on the one I love
I gave up on the answer
The hardest part

I'm trying to make sense of all this pain
I cut myself adrift to survive
Oh God, my God
You know I'm just wondering like a fool
Trying to come right
Oh God

Tell me something real to take me back
Remain with me if you want to find love
Don't give up on the question
Don't give up on the one you love
Don't give up on the answer
The hardest part
Track Name: Now That She's Gone
Last night I dreamt of her
Once more I saw her there
She was standing in my room
The cold upon her breath
A weight upon my chest
It was hard for me to move
To speak out

Why does she haunt me
Over and over
Why won't she leave me alone
I've nothing but memories
Over and over
Why won't she leave me now that she's gone

So much for confidence
In all the promises
And the healing power of time
I'm trying my best for her
To move on like she told me to
Is it love or is it shame to let go

Why does she haunt me
Over and over
Why won't she leave me alone
I've nothing but memories
Over and over
Why won't you leave me now that she's gone

Why does she haunt me
Over and over
Why won't she leave me alone
So sweet are the memories
Over and over
Why won't she leave me now that she's gone

Why won't you leave me now
Why won't you leave me now
Why won't you leave me now
That you're gone

Now that you're gone
Track Name: In Your Eyes
My bones are creaking
Like an empty rocking chair
My heart is weary
I'm more empty than I can bear

I used to be more
Before my pride
I can still be more
In your eyes

There is a healing
In the way you look at me
A fire that is raging
Your love that burns for me

I used to be more
Before my pride
I can still be more
In your eyes
I used to be more
Than what you can see before your blue eyes
Don't look away
I need you here with me

I'm looking up
I'm looking in your eyes
I'm looking up
I'm looking in your eyes

I used to be more
Before my pride
I can still be more
In your eyes
I used to be more
Than what you can see before your blue eyes
Don't look away
I need you here with me

In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
Track Name: Rescue
I call, I shout
I need your help
Come rescue me
My enemy is knocking on my door
The hunt, the chase
Relentless fear
It circles me
There's hunger for my blood
And it will spill

Rescue my heart
And carry me home
Before it's too late
And I am shot down

Hear my words
Take them to heart
Remember me
Your name upon my lips is all I have
If I am yours
And you are mine
Then cover me
I shelter in the love you have for me

Can you see me
Can you see where I am
I need a rescue
I need a rescue plan
