Not playing into her androgynous-sounding performing name, A Girl Called Eddy matches the grace of Karen Carpenter and the brutal honesty of Aimee Mann and Beth Orton. She emerged in the thicket of pop radio queens (Jessica Simpson, Avril Lavigne) during summer 2004 and introduced a sophisticated reflection of songs on her self-titled debut. A Girl Called Eddy never really had a plan to do it this way, however. Having already gone through a divorce and worked various mediocre jobs, A Girl Called Eddy wasn't satisfied living the American life. Music had been a magical part of her life. A healthy dose of Frank Sinatra and Tommy Dorsey from her parents provided A Girl Called Eddy, born Erin Moran, an escape from growing up on the Jersey shore. Once her mother had passed away in the late '90s, A Girl Called Eddy's adulthood came to a halt. Music was her therapy and again a positive outlet for her to be herself comfortably. She soon began singing backing vocals and playing keyboards for singer/songwriter Francis Dunnery and got the chance to tour Great Britain. It was right around this time that A Girl Called Eddy acquired her gender-bending nickname. In 2001, she issued her debut EP, Tears All Over Town on Le Grand Magistery. Several independent labels soon wooed her with record deals, but once more A Girl Called Eddy found herself in England. A chance meeting with Richard Hawley (Pulp, Longpigs) led her to set up shop in his Sheffield abode for what would become her proper first album. A Girl Called Eddy appeared on Anti in August 2004.

A girl called Eddy

*** Thanx a lot to Ashley for these lyrics ***

Tears all over town

Ride the subway home
Pretend that you're not home
When somebody calls you
But nobody calls you

And it's me who loves you still
And I always will

But there are tears all over town
Too many tears all over this town
There are tears all over town
Too many tears

Once there were trumpets in the air
And confetti in your hair
And I knew where I belonged
Now I'm singing you this song

And every star that fell that night
We reached for it all you know we tried

But there are tears all over town
Too many tears all over this town
There are tears all over town
Too many tears

I'm scattered like newspapers all over the street
I see your face in everyone I meet
I'm avoiding the corners
I'm avoiding your name
I know that I loved you but I loved you in vain

And this city's too small for two
My melancholy friend and you

And these tears all over town
Too many tears all over this town
Tears all over town
Too many tears all over this town
Too many tears
Too many tears...

Kathleen

If I don't laugh i'll cry
At all the years going by
Why is it so hard
To say your name tonight

This little room we called home
These things I thought that we owned
And our small piece of the sky

Where did you go
Where did you go

Oh Kathleen
All of the stars in the sky
Went out one by one the day you said goodbye
I still can see your face

Kathleen
All of this got in our way
And left us always waiting for the day
When things were gonna change
And life would re-arrange for us

Oh Kathleen
You're still the same to me

Where was that place in the sun
We used to chase then would run from it
Well since you're gone I'm done
With it for good

Where did you go
Where did you go

Oh Kathleen
All of the stars in the sky
Went out one by one the day you said goodbye
I still can see your face

Kathleen
All of this got in our way
And left us always waiting for the day
When things were gonna change
And life would re-arrange for us

Oh Kathleen
Kathleen
Kathleen

Girls can really tear you up inside

There's a girl whose stuck inside a picture frame
She's seen your face her mother's mentioned once your name
She sits and dreams her fifteen year old dreams of what to do
She's heard you sing and that your eyes are very very very blue

Why do you run
Why do you hide
From all you are
You're just a man

But she could tear you up inside
Tear you up inside
She could tear you up inside
Tear you up inside

She has a home outside this little picture frame
You're not in it and she wants someone to blame
Do you remember what it's like to be that young
All the pages that are blank all the songs yet to be sung

Why do you run
Why do you hide
From all she is
She's just a girl

But girls can tear you up inside
Tear you up inside
They could tear you up inside
Tear you up inside

If there are words you want to say
She's waiting for that rainy, that rainy day

Why do you run
Why do you hide
From all she is
She's just a girl
Tear you up inside
You're just a boy
Tear you up inside
They could tear you up inside
Tomorrow's gonna comes anyway
And you can see it in the inside
They could tear you up inside
Tear you up inside...

The long goodbye

You stormed my winter palace
You rid my heart of every bit of malice baby
You're how I won the war
Now your bags are packed
Your walking out the door
In every way
There is nothing to say anymore

This is the long goodbye
Maybe the tears will never dry
This is the long goodbye

Take your records, leave me mine
You're the one who said
We lived it all on the borrowed time
So, at the end of the day
There was nothing to say anymore

This is the long goodbye
Maybe the tears will never dry
This is the long goodbye
Leaving the past and you behind
This is the long goodbye

Take a good look, make it last
And when you've found the moments' past
Just remember that
Nobody loved you like me
Nobody loved you like me
Nobody loved you like me
Nobody loved you... like me

This is the long goodbye
Maybe the tears will never dry
This is the long goodbye
Leaving the past and you behind
This is the long goodbye
I'm out of words, I'm out of time
This is the long goodbye
This is the long goodbye
This is the long goodbye

*** Thanx a lot to Barbara who corrected this one ***

Somebody hurt you

Boy
Somebody hurt you
Boy
I wish I knew who
Could look
Into your sad eyes
And make
Such a sweet thing cry

You're lonely like only the broken can know
Aching for love but afraid to show
See how I miss you

Boy
Someone might hurt you
But it would never be me
I'd wrap you inside me
Be free or just hide for awhile

'Cause I'm lonely like only the broken can know
Aching for love but afraid to show
Lonely like only the broken can be
Breaking my own heart to make you see
See how I miss you

Please don't run away from the things that are real
And don't be afraid of whatever you feel
I'm feeling it too
I'm feeling it too

Boy
If you go looking
For things like in younger days
There won't be an answer
Only love can change your ways

Your lovely like only the broken can know
Aching for love but afraid to show
Lonely like only the broken can be
Breaking your own heart to make me see

See how I miss you
Boy, somebody hurt you
Boy, somebody hurt you
Boy, somebody hurt you
Boy, somebody hurt you
Boy, somebody hurt you
Boy, somebody hurt you
Boy

People used to dream about the future

Drinking our coffee
It's a quarter to three
No one in this place
Just us and our mistakes
You in the corner
That stupid smile
On your face
Tell me is there a way to replace
All the dreams
That didn't come true
Once we were happy

Once we were people
Who used to dream about the future
Once we were people
With stars in our eyes

Do you remember when I was your
'Alice blue gown'
And you were the handsome young
Prince in his crown
Now the rain hits the roof
And your realize
That even your youth has let you down
Oh don't go cry in your beer
'Cause it all ends in tears
Remember when we were happy

Once we were people
Who used to dream about the future
Yeah, once we were people
With stars in our eyes

Once we were people
Who used to dream about the future

But where did it all go
Where did it all go
Where did it all go

When did we stop taking pictures
And when did you lose all your fight
And where did you sign
Give up and resign
I never gave up on you
No, I never gave up on you

Once we were people
Who used to dream about the future
Once we were people
With stars in our eyes

Once we were people
Once we were people

Heartache

Where did those crass band mornings go
And the dreaming over tea
God only knows
Was it so long ago
Your tried to let me know

You'd seen this face
Somewhere before
Now you know for sure
That you can call him

Heartache
Yes, you can call him that
You can call him
Heartache
You'll never take it back

Once there was spring inside his eyes
Now there's only autumn winds
And sad grey skies
And I'm such a fool
To think that I
Could change the rules
I'd seen his face
Somewhere before
Now I know for sure

That you can call him
Heartache
You can call him that
You can call him
Heartache
You'll never take it back

And you can call him
Heartache
Yes, you can call him that
You can call him
Heartache
You'll never take it back

You've seen his face
Somewhere before
Now you know for sure

Life thru the same lens

We see life through the same lens
That's what you said to me
And I knew that it was true
Until you threw my heart in the sea

How do I adjust my vision
How do I pretend not to feel
How do I act like we never met
When everything is telling me it was oh so real

If it's life on the defence
The stinging pain of being made to fool
All the cynics and the irony
Won't save you when you're drowning
In loves' sweet pool

How do I adjust my vision
How do I pretend not to feel
How do I act like we never met
When everything is telling me it was oh so real
Baby, baby

It's only fair that you tell me
Just what it was you think I did wrong
If I was looking through the same lens
My prescription must've been all wrong

How do I adjust my vision
How do I pretend not to fell
How do I act like we never kissed
When everything is saying it was oh so real

If we saw through the same lens
Then you'd see I want you here right now
Instead of waiting for the day
When memory has clouded
Everything we loved about it

How do I adjust my vision
How do I pretend not to feel
How do I act like we never met
When everything is telling me it was oh so real

How do you adjust your vision
How do you pretend not to care
How do I act like we never met
And that you didn't see
What we know was there baby
Baby

Did you see the moon tonight

Did you see the moon tonight
Did it shine the way I asked it to
By the time it made it's way to you
Instead of me
Inside your room tonight

It will dance across your floor
Make you remember more
Then you might want it to
But I want you to
Remember me

If you see the moon tonight
I hope it finds you all alone
Maybe sitting by the phone
Kinda sad and glad to be unhappy
'Cause your missing me
Like I'm missing you

If you see the moon tonight
If you do, don't close your eyes
You might get a big surprise
I might just fly across the ocean
And materialize
Then I could tell you that it's true
That I'm the one who turned it white to blue
Just for you, just for you

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Little bird

Just like a little bird
Inside a little cage
Trying to find the strength
To learn to turn the page

Just like a mermaid
I am trapped under the sea
Trying to understand
What life wants me to be

Heroes and villains
And old lovers walk by
They tip their hats but
They never answer why

Why does it always seem
To bring me back to this
Searching for home
In someone else's gentle kiss
Searching for home in places
Home just don't exist

Heroes and villains
And old lovers walk by
They tip their hats but
They never answer why

So just like the mermaid
I will swim up to the light
Just like that little bird
It's time for me to fly

Golden

Last night I dreamed
While I was walking that I died looking up
At fancy buildings and skyscrapers
Are real heartbreakers
When your time has come and gone
It could've been all yours for a song

Of all the things I ever wanted
It was you
And love and freedom
But I was a girl haunted
In the blue, undaunted

Just swimming for the shore
Wondering what the hurt is for

But tonight I know why I'm here
I don't need to lose you to know
That it's already golden

Tonight I know in my heart
I don't need to die just to see
That it's already golden
That it's already golden

So take the purple
And take the black
And take all the colors of heartache back
And throw them in the sea
And say you love me
Keep the silver, keep the gold
Stay wand watch the world get old

'Cause tonight I know why I'm here
I don't need to lose you to know
That It's already golden

Tonight I know in my heart
I don't need to die just to see
That it's already golden
It's already golden
It's already golden
It's already golden
It's already golden
It's already golden

Baby Plays Around

( Elvis Costello Cover / Somebody hurt you - EP )

It's not open to discussion anymore
She's out again tonight
And I'm alone once more
She's all I have worth waiting for
But baby plays around

And so it seems
I've always been the last to know
To hold on to that girl
I had to let her go
I wish to God
I didn't love her so
Baby plays around

I try to be strong
Hold on to my pride
She doesn't even know it's wrong
How much I hurt Inside
And heaven knows I've tried
But baby plays around
Just a plaything
It's hard to reconcile
The facts I'm facing

It's not open to discussion anymore
She walks those shiny streets
I walk the worn out floor
She's all I have worth living for
Baby plays
Baby plays
Around

Girls Can Really Tear You Up Inside EP Version

( Tears All Over Town EP )

What do you do in the morning
What do you do at the rising shine
After your coffee, after your tea
Do you ever think of me

Fade to "Girls Can Really Tear You Up Inside" LP lyrics

Love Actually

Here
Left to my own devices
I just keep on moving from crisis to crisis
It's sad but true
Til I met you

I've been drifting from problem to problem
Open to find
Some kind of answers to solve them
It's sad but true
What can I do

Well, love actually love is one thing I can do
And give, give all the love and the world to you
Oh, love actually love is one thing I can do
And give, give all the love and my heart to you

But I can't keep money in my placket, no
And I can't keep time
And I can't keep saying no
To things my heart wants to say yes to

Well, love actually love is one thing I can do
And give, give all the love and the world to you
Oh, love actually love is one thing I can do
And give, give all the love and my heart to you

Ba da ba da…

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot

( Nat King Cole cover / Blue Christmas LP )

He's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot
And goodness knows he didn't want a lot

He sent a note to Santa
For some soldiers and a drum
It broke his little heart
When he found Santa hadn't come

In the street he envies all those lucky boys
Then wanders home to last year's broken toys
I'm so sorry for that laddie
He hasn't got a daddy
The little boy that Santa Claus forgot

You know, Christmas comes but once a year for every girl and boy
The laughter and the joy, they find in each brand new toy
I'll tell you of a little boy that lives across the way
This little fella's Christmas is just like any other day
He's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot
And goodness knows, he didn't want a lot

In the street he envies all those lucky boys
Then wanders home to last year's broken toys
I'm so sorry for that laddie
He hasn't got a daddy
The little boy that Santa Claus forgot

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

The Same Old Tears

( Stephen Bishop cover / Tears All Over Town EP )

It's the same old tears on a new background
Seeing you as a fading photograph
It hurts too much to laugh these days

I'm all right
Yes, I'm all right
I'm all right

It's the same old song with a new melody
But this old candle's lingering flame is almost gone
To see you again is all that keeps me hanging on

But I'm all right
Yes, I'm all right
I'm all right

Remembering, remembering the familiar heartache
No one but you could ever make this dream come true

It's the same old me crying the same old tears
And I walk away like I always do
Still in love with you

But I'm all right
Yes, I'm all right
I’m all right

I'm all right
Yes, I'm all right
I'm all
I'm all right

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

The soundtrack of your life

( Tears All Over Town EP )

Fuzzes on buses and subway train
I'll keep on singing you settled a flame (?)
And if ignorance is blessed
Well sealed it with a kiss
But it was never supposed to end like this

This is the soundtrack of your life, baby
This is the soundtrack of your life, life

Well each step you take
You think you hear the sound of midnight cowboy
But it's just the clouds's putting your head on

Go and have another cigarette
And put out that you'll forget
What I meant to you was that's what you do

This is the soundtrack of your life, baby
This is the soundtrack of your life, life
This is the soundtrack of your life
This is the soundtrack of your life

Oh, I could have loved you, baby, 'til my dying day
Oh, why did you leave my heart on, my sweet, standing on Broadway
Standing on Broadway

Hmmm… I could have loved you, baby
Standing on Broadway

This is the soundtrack of your life, baby
This is the soundtrack of your life, life
This is the soundtrack of your life, life
This is the soundtrack of your life, life

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Under The Warm Sun

( The Long Goodbye EP )

Under the warm sun
Under the warm sun

I've found my way
It took a while
Now it's not hard
For me to smile
We found a place
Under the warm sun

Living a life
We always dreamed
Me loving you
You loving me
We found a place
Under the warm sun

And life is sweeter than I ever thought it could be
If you'd have told me I never would have believed

The trouble can go
Back where it came
Give me some joy
You're all the same
We found a place
Under the warm sun

I've been so tired of being so cold
Just wanted that sunny place to grow old
Give up the chase
Under the warm sun

And life is sweeter than I ever thought it could be
If you'd have told me I never would have believed

I found my way
It took some time
Now we are here
Now we can shine
We found a place
Under the warm sun
Under the warm sun
Under the warm sun
Under the warm sun
Under the warm sun

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***
