about

Kayleigh Gallagher UK

I'm a singer/songwriter from Lurgan, N.I. Formerly the lead singer and frontwoman of local Alternative Metal band 'Envisage' for four year. Following the split in 2011, I decided to go in a completely different direction and went solo with my trusty keyboard =).

Anyway! Have a wee nosy around my page and if you like what you hear, feel free to let me know!

DEBUT EP OUT SOON.

Track Name: Broken Doll
We only speak in whispers
In the dead of night
It's the only time you'll listen
'Cause we're out of sight.

Can't remember what you said
But it's drumming through my head.
You have elastic around my waist
And there's no chance of escape.

Hold up your hands
You're guilty as
Your's truly but I
Oh I am not denying,
'Cause love is not a crime.

Can't remember what you said
But it's drumming through my head.
You have elastic around my waist
And there's no chance of escape
It's the perfect puppet show,
Cut me down and let me go.

Heed me, disaster is over
If you need me, tonight.
Take this, glass half empty
Won't be needing you again.

Kiss me while you can fix me
'Cause I'm smashing in your hands.
And you look at me with disgrace,
And you're blocking out my face.
Still I'm with you through it all..
I'm your perfect Broken Doll.
Track Name: Wasting Away
I'm wasting away, but I'm dying to stay.
And all I've believed, I've betrayed.
Put a gun to my head, tell me I'll end up dead,
If I carry on living this way.
And I swear that it won't make me change.
'Cause I fold way too early.
Can't bear to play it dirty.
We'll fight 'til the morning light.
I'm staying here tonight.
I'm tied up in knots, I can't read my own thoughts,
And secretly I'm glad I've been caught.
Hold a knife to my throat, say it's my time to go
If I don't practice what I've been taught,
And I should but I thrive on the flaws.
'Cause I fold way too early.
Can't bear to play it dirty with you
We'll fight 'til the morning light.
I'm staying here tonight.
Track Name: Perfect Little Dream
I'm here, I'm by your side.
You can close your eyes,
And I'll be your lullaby.
Fall asleep, then in your dreams
We can drift Away.
To France, or Spain;
To rid all the pain
With a drink or thirteen,
And lie on the beach,
And we'll dance all night,
And we'll never fight,
'Cause there's no such thing.
And dare to tell me different.
Dare to tell me, I must live like you.
I'm here, still by your side
And your still asleep,
While I'm merely trying
To meet you in your perfect little dream world,
Just let me in.
And we'll run away
From material ways.
And we'll hitch a ride
To better days.
'Cause there ain't no way
Our lives must be led,
Living in our heads.
And dare to tell me different.
Dare to tell me I must live like you.
I'm here, still by your side
And your still asleep,
While I'm merely trying
To meet you in your perfect little dream world,
Just let me in.
And we'll run away
From material ways.
And we'll hitch a ride
To better days.
'Cause there ain't no way
Our lives must be led,
Living in our heads.
Track Name: There You Are
My hands are shaking
And I can't utter a word.
Want you to hold me
But I'm pushing you toward her.
Always second best
In any circumstance
And I never prove myself
When I'm given the chance.

But there you are,
And you seem to have control.
Oh there you are,
And you're breaking the mould.

I've got no grip
From this cliff I'm slipping down
It seems inevitable
That I will hit that ground.
Why should trust in anything,
Or anyone.
Just want to rest my eyes,
When the day is done.

But there you are,
And you seem to have control.
Oh there you are,
And I'm not on my own.

Infact I've never been
So far from anything.
Any finally
I can breath.

There you are,
With my heart.
