about

Monica Lionheart New York, New York

Singer-songwriter Monica Lionheart layers her frosty voice over wafts of electronica and strings in a manner that suggests dry ice—and lots of it—plus Sigur Rós, and early Cure records interpreted by a tropicalia singer. It’s gorgeous stuff, in other words. - Time Out Magazine

Get familiar with the singer with the gorgeous locks and vivid storytelling. -Latina Magazine

Track Name: Escape Strategy
escape strategy

waking in my body I don't feel like myself
who's that smiling stranger in the pictures on the shelf
your my daily habit so habitual
sudden change now grabs it
breaks and rips

i can go, as you well know
i'll never show, the escape strategy

i heard you ripping within the frame
i tried gripping, texture not the same
yeah, slipping, slipping away
the content cold, moments will decay

well i can go, as you well know
i'll never show, the escape strategy

well i can go, as you well know
i'll never show, the escape strategy

in your madness your spinning around
in your sadness your not safe nor sound
I won't witness your crash to the ground
happiness waiting to be found

in your madness your spinning around
in your sadness your not safe nor sound
I won't witness your crash to the ground
happiness waiting to be found
Track Name: My Heart
my heart

you rise up with the morning light
and stare out at the skyline
we've passed each other like ships in the night
i want you to know what you mean to my life

you are my own
you are my stength
you are my all, my heart
keep my alive, keep my safe
my heart

so come on in, i'll let you inside
i promise that i wont even put up a fight
i'll wrap you around my waist this time
to make you feel alive

i'll rise up with the morning light
and stare out at your skyline
we've passed each other like ships in the night
i want you to know what you mean to my life

you are my own
you are my strength
you are my all, my heart
keep my alive, keep my safe
my heart

you are my own
you are all
keep my alive
my heart

oh my heart
you are my own
you are all
keep my alive
my heart
oh my heart

Eres mi fuerza
Eres mi existir
Eres mi fe

Eres mi fuerza
Eres mi existir
Eres mi fe
Mi esperanza
Eres mi fuerza
Eres mi existir
Eres mi fe
Mi esperanza
Track Name: Rocks to Ankles
rocks to ankles

fade the past
transform the red to blue
fear these winds, will lead me back to you

call out and spill your old perfume
now i recall the one i knew
it fills up my space

bathe in showers of the mind
memories that i couldn't find
now have found their way

tie rocks to ankles
and let tide drift on
tie rocks to ankles
and let the tide drift on

bleed the cost
shadows hang low below
thoughts on page paint pictures memorable

call out and spill your old perfume
now i recall the one i knew
it fills up my space

Track Name: Let Go
let go

you call into an empty space
walls up and closed doors
longing for an explanation
is what you waiting for?

let go, some things will never change
let go, something will be the same

everything that ends starts again

what's the point the point of everything
we're all walking alone
wake and sleep, asleep awake
and what is it all for?

let go, nothing will be the same
let go, nothing will ever change

everything that ends, starts again
all that does begin, soon will end

I call into an empty space
walls up and closed doors
longing for an explanation
what is this all for?

let go, nothing will be the same
let go, nothing will ever change

everything that ends, starts again
all that does begin, soon will end

let go... let go... let go...
