about

Sophy Jay England, UK

Bork!

Hello, my name's Sophy. I write and sing songs, play the guitar blah blah blah.

I started writing songs at age 12, started gigging at 15. Stopped at 19 for personal reasons. Returned at 24 and now you all have to put up with me again.

Listen to my music. Buy it if you feel inclined (please do, I'm very poor). Come see me at shows; I'll awkwardly wave and say hi.

Track Name: Radio Silence
Static in my ears ringing on for years
And it just won't go away
I try to speak but the signal's weak
It's like this everyday

Hello, hello: can anybody hear me?

Radio silence
Silence on the airwaves
So much I wanna say but no words to say it
Radio silence
Silence on the airwaves
So much I wanna say would anyone listen anyway?

S.O.S. I'm such a mess
Don't know if I can go on
Tryna fix the wires but I'm so tired
Would giving up be so wrong?
Track Name: F.R.I.E.N.D.S.H.I.P.
F is for flaking out on every promise made
R is for rubbing it in my face when I've not made the grade
I is for I never should have trusted you
E is for everyone can finally see the truth

About you, and every little spiteful thing you do to me
Now everyone can see.

Is that what friendship means to you?
Cuz all you seem to do is chew me up and spit me out
Is that what friendship's all about?
Treating me just like I'm dirt
Do all you can to see me hurt
I can see I meant nothing to you
So I declare this friendship through

N is for never being good enough
D is for doing all I could when times got rough
You were never there, never around
Now this ship is going down


Thanks for never letting me in
Thanks for pushing me away
Thanks for letting me down
Thanks for not thinking to stay
Track Name: Mathematical
I know that life gets tough
And that its easy to give up when you've had enough
Just know that you're not all alone
You don't have to fight every battle on your own
So just open up and let me in
And watch as the adventure begins
We can fight our demons and touch the stars
Dance through fire, this world can be ours

Nothing can hold us back
Nothing can keep us down
Just try and hold us back
You'll never keep us down

And I'll be right by your side
And I'll never give up this fight
And I'll never leave your side
And I'll always come along for the ride

So be brave follow your path
Listen to wise words but listen to your heart
And don't ever be afraid to tear those walls down
Its you and me against the world
Stand up tall and let your voice be heard
And should you ever fall
I'll help you hold your ground
Track Name: A Song For Me
There was a time in life I thought I was done for
That my dreams were dreams and nothing more
There was a time in life I'd let you drag me down
But these dreams are mine and I'm still around

If you think I'm gonna back down well I'm not
If you wanna try and bring me down take your best shot

You all thought I couldn't get here
Well take a good look before I disappear
I may be here now but I'm on my way
To something better for me

Never underestimate the underdog
Never think we'll turn our backs and run
Don't you think I'm gonna give up now
Cuz I tell you now I won't stop til I'm done


I say what I want and the rest comes easy
Do what you want, you won't displease me
Say what I want the rest comes easy
