Song Description

Siren was the first performance collaboration between Adam Print (music, lyrics and accompaniment) and the actor/singer Melanie Stevens (vocals). The song was written for the Leeway Productions event 'Sirens', which was held at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, as part of their Performances for the Curious season. The event gave songwriters the opportunity to share new material with the intention of celebrating the female voice.

Story Behind the Song

Finding your voice is the first battle, being heard is the second. To avoid being solely defined by others, find the strength within, to sound like a siren.

Lyrics

Sick and tired of not being heard
Opening my mouth but nothing there but silence
Even when the words come out, the meaning drops before my lips and leaves them flightless
Sometimes I have to watch what I say to keep my feet on the floor.
And when people get too close my brain keeps saying "keep one eye on the door".

I can't stand it when I feel like I cannot say what's on my mind.
But now I've found a way to say it, I'll say it, leave it all behind.

I will say it for myself. Say it for myself.
I could whisper it or I could shout it out but I will say it for myself.
They took the words right off the tip of my tongue and it was driving me up the wall.
But when I was feeling like the way I was when I was without you.
I'd sound like a siren.

You don't even know my name, jumping up and down in front of you; unnoticed.
Dancing in a darkened room, the only way to play by rules; and be the surest.

I was lost inside my head, going out my mind feeling without
But I'll dance to the beat of my own drum vote with my feet shout it out.

I'm gonna say it for myself. Say it for myself.
I could whisper it but I will shout it out, I'm gonna say it for myself.
They took the words right off the tip of my tongue and it was driving me up the wall.
But when I was feeling like the way I was when I was without you.
I'd sound like a siren.

Like a siren. Like a siren.
Like a siren. Like a siren.
Like a siren. Like a siren.

I had a dream I was reborn into a place that didn't suffocate imagining.
And I took a vow that I would shout it out and stop the suffering.

I'm a siren. I'm a siren.
I'm a siren. I'm a siren.
I'm a siren. I'm a siren.
I'm a siren. I'm a siren.
