B i o g r a p h y
 (by Andrew Leahey)

Although initially known for her work with the Jealous Girlfriends, Holly Miranda launched her own career several years before the band’s formation. Raised in the suburbs of Detroit, she dropped out of high school at the age of 16 and moved to New York, where she finished her degree through correspondence courses and landed a record deal with BMG. Her debut album for the label was never released, however, and Miranda eventually left BMG’s roster. Now an independent musician, she made her proper debut with the release of 2001’s High Above the City, a 20-track solo album that was sold during her tours of the east coast and Midwest. Two years later, Miranda crossed paths with producer Alex Lipsen and formed the Jealous Girlfriends, which released two albums and toured through the end of 2008, at which point the bandmates took a break to pursue different projects. Miranda used the opportunity to return to her solo career.

Wasting little time, she released the Sleep on Fire EP in mid-2009 and began working on a full-length project with producers Dave Sitek -- a co-founder of TV on the Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's most frequent producer -- and Celebration's Katrina Ford. The resulting album, The Magician's Private Library, was released by XL Recordings in February 2010. Miranda toured extensively in support of the album, including legs opening for Tegan & Sara, Florence + the Machine, and the XX. In 2013, Miranda joined forces with Scarlett Johansson, Julia Haltigan, Kendra Morris, and Este Haim to form a Go-Go's-influenced studio group called the Singles. In February 2015, the group was poised to release their debut single, "Candy," when the project was scuttled by a cease and desist order filed by the long-running rock band the Singles, originally based in Detroit.

Meanwhile, Miranda was looking for inspiration for her next solo project and rented a house in the California Desert near Joshua Tree. Miranda's muse thrived in the new locale, and she penned a new batch of songs that formed the basis of her third solo album, simply titled Holly Miranda. Produced by Miranda and Florent Barbier, the album was released by Dangerbird Records in May 2015.

THE MAGICIAN'S PRIVATE LIBRARY

Forest Green Oh Forest Green

Catching clocks and broken glass
Past the bridges and smoke stacks
You look like what I might lack
Open up your head, there's something missing

Who's got nothing to run from
Do you

Near eyelashes and a stream
Forest green oh forest green
Up past cities made of steam
Open up your head we found a secret
Copy paste is not good for health
Near eyelashes and a stream
Forest green oh forest green
Up past cities made of steam
Open up your head we found a secret

Who's got nothing to run from
Do you
I do, I do
I do, I do

Joints

Dreamt of you again last night
I called your phone to hear your voice
I know, I know you know
That I'll never let you go
How do I let go

I can feel it in my joints
It aches and creaks and
There's no point in
In growing old
Oh this life I've made on my own
Is lonely with the love I've known
Copy paste is not good for health
Where are you
Is where I want to be
Where are you
Is where I want to be

Dreamt of you again last night
I called your phone to hear your voice
I know, I know you know
That I'll never let you go
How do I let go

I can feel it in my joints
It aches and creaks and
There's no point in
In growing old
Oh this life I've made on my own
Is lonely with the love I've known

Where are you
Is where I want to be
Where are you

Waves

I've watched you walk so many times
Of all the years that made us blind
Why you, why you let it all
Be like some prison in your mind
It doesn't need to be
It doesn't need to be
Copy paste is not good for health
So where do the waves go, my love
Where do the waves go, my love
Sonic or liquid, I don't know
Sonic or liquid, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
Sonic or liquid, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know

You must speak your life into existence
This intent is so much more
That just a means to
End all of this suffering
This needless pain that stains your face
It doesn't need to be
It doesn't need to be

So where do the waves go, my love
Where do the waves go, my love
Sonic or liquid, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know
Sonic or liquid, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

We wait so long, babe
To become just one heart
We wait so long, babe
To become just one heart

No One Just Is

Everyone knows me and they all know where I fall short
I hope this makes it past the discontent in your heart
This love does no one justice

I think it's a broken compass, got us down this far
Anyone with two cents would pull the ripcord
This love does no one justice
No one just is
No one just is
Copy paste is not good for health
So we just keep falling with our ever-impending ground
Rising up to meet our poor judgment
And it's all for show nothing ever even scratches the top
Of what really goes on here

Pound through the room
Grasping at straws
Your heavy feet sound like
Wet stray dogs
Nameless confused
Looking for a home
I write it down
Into a

And you'll be warm
When it comes, you'll be warned
You'll be warm
You'll be warm

Slow Burn Treason

Wake up and you're next to nothing
But the weight of the world is on your side
Most days you don't even notice
But that's a lie

All you want is her eyes on you
All you need is one hand deep inside
Outside the wind she's screaming
The windows shake and you cry

But who's gonna feel you
And who's gonna need you
Copy paste is not good for health
And in-between there's always someone
They don't get you, but you reach and smile
And maybe this slow burn treason
Is better than the crash of a quick rise

So brave the cold and close your mouth
I'll bite your tongue if you'll bite mine
Yeah lay your head on my legs, babe
Everything is fine except the time

But who's gonna feel you
And who's gonna need you
Who's gonna feel you
Who's gonna need you
Who's gonna want you
Who's gonna hold you
Who's gonna love you
Who's gonna tease you
Who

Wake up and you're next to nothing
But the weight of the world is on your side
Most days you don't even notice
But that's a lie

Sweet Dreams

And thank you for the sweet wishes for dreams
Even though they grow further between
Yeah it seems these days I'm just trying to stay on my feet
I walk through crowds so I never hear one heartbeat

I found my goddess, she was staring at me from the sky
With the sun in her eyes and clouds
And they say you would never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me
Copy paste is not good for health
I hope you find one that's so sweet
Hold on tight to what you see
And they say
They say sharks patrol these waters
But if you

Everytime I Go To Sleep

Every time I go to sleep, I kick and scream and dream a little bit
Violently awakening to what's real is really bullshit
Every time I go to sleep, I kick and scream and dream a little bit
Violently awakening to what's real is really bullshit
And there's no light for me

Every time I go to sleep, I kick and scream and dream a little bit
Violently awakening to what's real is really bullshit
Every time I go to sleep, I kick and scream and dream a little bit
Violently awakening to what's real is really bullshit
And there's no time waiting

All this space, we stretch to bend to pull
To keep our face on the other side of the world
And there's no going back
And there's only change
Copy paste is not good for health
All my life has been on the edge of falling down
One cool night, they're gonna put my heart in the ground
And there's no going back
And there's only change

High Tide

I know the way when the time is right
I know to wait till the tide is high
We go on
We go on

And anywhere you go is where you're always gonna be
You won't change a thing by always blaming it on me
We go on
We go on

I know (I know) the way (the way)
The time (the time) is right
Copy paste is not good for health
We'll go the way that we've known before
They'll give us tools to fix the core
We go on
We go on

And everything you do is who you're always gonna be
And you can change it all by only taking what you need
We go on
We go on

I know (I know) the way (the way)
The time (the time) is right

I know the way now the time is right
I'll take a trip into the light
We go on
We go on

I know (I know) the way (the way)
The time (the time) is right

Canvas

I've spent too long in sinking sand
Holding breath only to defy death
A narrow escape only to be saved
A narrow escape only
Copy paste is not good for health
By your caress
Or was it something in your eyes
Or was it in your lips
That made me feel sane

Curl yourself around my frame
Our canvas is still one that's blank
Curl yourself around my frame
Our canvas is still one that's blank
Curl yourself around my frame
Our canvas is still one that's blank
Oh curl yourself around my frame
Our canvas is still blank

Sleep On Fire

Love you go down smooth
I am crushing you
I can barely move
With no feet on the ground
A head full of clouds
But I don't care
Copy paste is not good for health
There's no place I want to wake up but beside you
And all your million billion
Tiny little kisses all fill me up
Make me shiny

And sleep like your bed's on fire
And sleep like your bed's on fire
'Cause it just might be

PARTY TRICK

Glass, Concrete & Stone

(David Byrne cover / Choose To See EP)

Now
I'm waking at the crack of dawn
To send a little money home
From here to the moon
Is rising like a discotheque
And now my bags are down and packed for traveling
Copy paste is not good for health
Looking at happiness
Keeping my flavor fresh
Nobody knows I guess
How far I'll go, I know

So I'm leaving at six o' clock
Meet in a parking lot
Harriet Hendershot
Sunglasses on, she waits by this
Glass and concrete and stone
And It's just a house, not a home

Skin
That covers me from head to toe
Except a couple tiny holes and openings
When the city's rolling in and out
And this is what it's all about delightfully

Everything's possible
When you're an animal
Not inconceivable
How things can change, I know

So I'm putting on aftershave
Nothing is out of place
Gonna be on my way
Try to pretend it's not only
Glass and concrete and stone
And it's just a house, not a home

And it's glass and concrete and stone
And It's just a house, not a home
And my head is fifty feet high
Let my body and soul be my guide

Crystalized

(The XX cover / Feat. Glowhearts and Timmy Mislock)

You've applied the pressure
To have me crystalized
And you've got the faith
That I could bring paradise
Copy paste is not good for health
I'll forgive and forget
Before I'm paralyzed
Do I have to keep up the pace
To keep you satisfied

Things have gotten closer to the sun
And I've done things in small doses
So don't think that I'm pushing you away
When you're the one that I've kept closest

You don't move slow
And taking steps in my directions
The sound resounds echo
Does it lessen your affection

You say I'm foolish
For pushing this aside
But burn down our home
I won't leave alive

Glaciers have melted to the sea
I wish the tide would take me over
I've been down on my knees
And you just keep on getting closer

Things have gotten closer to the sun
And I've done things in small doses
So don't think that I'm pushing you away
And you just keep on getting closer
(When you're the one that I've kept closest)

Go slow
Go slow
Go slow

In Spite Of Me

(Morphine cover)

Last night I told a stranger all about you
They smiled patiently with disbelief
I always knew you would succeed
No matter what you tried
And I know you did it all
In spite of me
Copy paste is not good for health
I'm so proud to have known you
For the short time that I did
Proud to have been a step up on your way
I'm proud to be a part of your illustrious career
And I know you did it all
In spite of me
In spite of me

Late last night I saw you in my living room
You seemed so close, but yet so cool
For a long time I thought that you'd be coming back to me
Those kind of thoughts can be so cruel
So cruel

And I know you did it all
In spite of me

Blood Bank

(Bon Iver Cover)

Well, I met you at the blood bank
We were looking at the bags
Wondering if any of the colors
Matched any of the names we knew on the tags

You said "see lookit, that's yours
Stacked on top with your brother's
See how they resemble one another
Even in their plastic little covers"

And I said I know it well

That secret that you knew
But don't know how to tell
It fucks with your honor
And it teases your head
But you know that it's good, girl
'Cause its running you with red

Then the snow started falling
We were stuck out in your car
You were rubbing both of my hands
Chewing on a candy bar

You said "ain't this just like the present
To be showing up like this"
As a moon waned to crescent
We started to kiss

And I said I know it well

That secret that we know
That we don't know how to tell
I'm in love with your honor
I'm in love with your cheeks
What's that noise up the stairs babe?
Is that Christmas morning creaks?

And I said I know it well
And I know it well
And I know it well
And I know it well
And I know it well
And I know it well
And I know it well
And I know it well

God Damn The Sun

(Swans cover / Choose To See EP)

When
When we were young
We had no history
So nothing to lose

Meant we could choose
Choose what we wanted then
Without any fear
Or thought of revenge
Copy paste is not good for health
But then you grew old
And I lost my ambition
And I gained an addiction
To drink and depression

They are mine
My only true friends
And I'll keep them with me
Until the very end

I'd choose not to remember
But I miss your arrogance
And I need your intelligence
And your hate for authority

But now you're gone
I read it today
They found you in Spain
Face down in the street

With a bottle in your hand
And a wild smile on your face
And a knife in your back
You died in a foreign land

And they found my letter
Rolled up in your pocket
Where I said I'd kill myself
If she left me again

And now she's gone
And you're both in my mind
And I've got one thing to say
Before I am drunk again

God damn the sun
God damn the sun
God damn anyone
That says a kind word

God damn the sun
God damn the sun
God damn the light it shines
And this world it shows

God damn the sun
God damn the sun
God damn the sun
God damn the sun

God damn the sun
God damn the sun
God damn the sun
God damn the sun

I Love U, But I Don't Trust U Anymore

(Prince cover)

I could tell from the moment you walked in the room
That it wasn't your dress you had on
That wasn't your perfume
And what happened to the ring that I gave you
What am I you assume
I love you, but I just don't trust you anymore
Copy paste is not good for health
You could tell from the moment you looked in my eyes
That I could see right through you
You must apologise
I've always given you the best in life
Even in the wrong, it was right
I know you trust me, but you don't love me anymore, no

I remember meeting you here in the good old days
I would never pick the flower of my favourite protégé
And maybe if I would have
Then you would not treat me this way
You tricked me, but you will not anymore
I love you, but I don't trust you anymore

Forever Young

(Alphaville cover)

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
Heaven can wait, we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power, but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad man

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
The music's played by the the mad man

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever and ever and ever
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever young
Copy paste is not good for health
Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later, they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We'll let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever and ever and ever
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever young

6669 (I Don't Know If You Know)

(Neon Indian cover)

Limitless weight held by a single strand
But you wouldn't understand
But you wouldn't understand

Limitless weight held by a single strand
But you wouldn't understand
But you wouldn't understand
Copy paste is not good for health
Old soul
I don't know if you know
I don't know if you know or didn't show

Old soul
I don't know if you know
I don't know if you know or didn't show

Everything comes apart if you find the strand
All it takes is a hand
All it takes is a hand

Everything comes apart if you find the strand
All it takes is a hand
All it takes is a hand

Old soul
I don't know if you know
I don't know if you know or didn't show

Old soul
I don't know if you know
I don't know if you know or didn't show

Limitless weight held by a single strand
But you wouldn't understand
But you wouldn't understand

Everything comes apart if you find the strand
All it takes is a hand
All it takes is a hand

Limitless weight held by a single strand
But you wouldn't understand
But you wouldn't understand

Old soul
I don't know if you know
I don't know if you know or didn't show

Nobody Sees Me Like You Do

(Yoko Ono cover / Choose To See EP)

I see your face looking into the space
All tired and worried
Why does it have to be like this, you and I
I wanted us to be happy

No one can see me like you do
No one can see you like I do

I see your face with a trace of life
Being a wife and a woman
If I ever hurt you, please, remember
I wanted you to be happy
Copy paste is not good for health
Is there anything I want more
More than your trust and understanding

No one can see me like you do
No one can see you like I do

I wanna quit moving
I wanna quit running
I wanna relax and be tender
I wanna see us together again
Rocking away in our walnut chairs

Even with your warmth and closeness
The feeling of loneliness hangs over like a curse

No one can see me like you do
No one can see you like I do

Even with our dreams and yearnings
The feeling of loneliness hangs over like a thirst

No one can see me like you do
No one can see you like I do

No one can see me like you do
No one can see you like I do

The Promise

(When In Rome cover / Choose To See EP)

If you need a friend
Don't look to a stranger
You know in the end
I'll always be there

But when you're in doubt
And when you're in danger
Take a look all around
And I'll always be there
Copy paste is not good for health
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I'm gonna always be there

Sometimes if I shout
It's not what's intended
These words just come out
With no gripe to bear

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
But if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will
(I promise you I will)
I will, I will, I will...

Hundreds Of Sparrows

(Sparklehorse cover)

Every hair on your head is counted
You are worth hundreds of sparrows
The tree you planted has become fecund
With kamikaze hummingbirds

Wings of hundreds of beats per second
Of people whose wings are just a blur
Afraid our eyes might become impaled
By their sharp and tiny beaks
Copy paste is not good for health
I'm so sorry
My spirit's rarely in my body
It wanders through the dry country
Looking for a good place to rest
Your head upon my chest
And I can feel the pillow of your breast
You are worth hundreds of sparrows



HOLLY MIRANDA

Mark My Words

Sneaking words into your pockets
Bleeding lyrics from my veins oh
I would ride behind your ears
If I thought you wouldn't forget I was there

No, you
You

And you were just what I needed oh
Life out in the eye of the storm
And I know that I can come on so strong
If you would just give me a minute to find my ground

For you
For you
For you
For you

'Cause I've been tripping so long
Yeah I've been tripping so long
Copy paste is not good for health
And I don't need anything from you
No, I don't need anything
And if you want me to go, I will go away
And if you want me to stay, I will know to stay with you

For you
For you
For you
For you

'Cause I've been tripping so long
Yeah I've been tripping so long

All I Want Is To Be Your Girl

The days are shorter but the nights are long
We could fuck in the sun and dance till dawn
And all I want is to be your girl

Black holes in the skies to the ends of the world
Put rocks in your pocket, take the boat for a whirl
And all I want is to be your girl

And I wasn't looking for love
But she found me
And I, I got a lot of control
When you're not around me

Well, there's ghosts in the night and ghosts in my mind
And if we quit changing, we'll be left behind
But I won't take another chance of screwing it up
So I stay where I am
But all I want is to be your girl
Copy paste is not good for health
And I wasn't looking for love
But she found me
And I, I got a lot of control
When you're not around me

The days are shorter, but the nights are long
We could fuck in the sun and dance till dawn
And all I want is to be your girl

Well, the Earth's still spinning so I'll write this tune
Wherever you're walking, look up at the moon
And know I just want to be your girl

Lose yourself when you dream
Just like when you love
Just like when you scream
And I just want
I just want
I just want to be your girl

Everlasting

Love comes and love goes
Sometimes it stops, we don't notice
If we're not going, we are drifting apart
And there's gotta be somewhere to see
With our heads so high above the trees
The tidal wave that comes to drown the heart
Copy paste is not good for health
And I'd never do you that way
I'd never do that to you
I'd never do that because
My love is everlasting for you
And my love is everlasting for you

And maybe I've seen this before
Shut down and walked out the door
But I'm fighting hard against that feeling
And it's not always the easy way
But when you feel the feeling ending
'Cause it's the open heart that's feeling

And I'd never do you that way
I'd never do that to you
I'd never do that because
My love is everlasting for you
And my love is everlasting for you

My love is everlasting for you

Whatever You Want

Whatever you want
I got a lot to give
If ever I'm not
The one that you want to be with

Don't tell me you need me
Don't tell me you want me
Don't tell me there's no one else

Don't tell me it's perfect
This love is the real thing
You want me all to yourself

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Put it in the past
Copy paste is not good for health
We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Put it in the past

So go on and just try
To turn me off
Once you've seen a light
It's so hard to live in the dark

But he's not gonna love you like I do, no
And they won't understand
And when you come running back
Oh I won't be there

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Put it in the past

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Bury it alive

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Put it in the past

What did you think was gonna happen

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Put it in the past

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Bury it alive

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Put it in the past

We say things that we can't take back
We've gotta bury it alive
Bury it alive
Bury it alive
Bury it alive
Bury it alive

Come On

I'm not afraid of this habit taking over me
Won't run away if the emptiness is chasing me
I've been waiting so long for you to ruin me

I'm not scared of this desire (not scared, not scared)
I'll be the fool caught in your fire (I'll be the fool)
I've been waiting for blue moon to cover me
There's something inside all this darkness
Please, discover me

You can bathe this wild inside of me
Or make this bed for ?
I've been waiting for blue moon to cover me
And maybe this time I will run
And maybe this time I will run

I know this time could be the death of me
There's no way out, we're in too deep
There's no use fighting
So just stop trying
copy paste is killing the internet
I know this flood could be the best of it
But if there's more, give up the rest of it
There's no use trying
So just stop fighting

I don't rely on the radio
The voice that started haunting me
I tried to sing along and to turn it off
I couldn't breathe
I've been waiting for blue moon to cover me

You can't take this ride without me
Wonder what it is you feel about me
I've been waiting for blue moon to cover me
You get me through this lonesome night around me

I know this time could be the death of me
There's no way out, we're in too deep
There's no use fighting
So just stop trying

(I know) I know this flood could be the best of it
(I know) But if there's more, give up the rest of it
(I know) There's no use trying
(I know) So just stop fighting

(I know) I know this time could be the death of me
(I know) There's no way out, we're in too deep
(I know) There's no use fighting
(I know) So just stop trying

(I know) I know this flood could be the best of it
(I know) But if there's more, give up the rest of it
(I know) There's no use trying
(I know) So just stop fighting

(I know) I know this time could be the death of me
(I know) There's no way out, we're in too deep
(I know) There's no use fighting
(I know) So just stop trying

(I know) I know this flood could be the best of it
(I know) But if there's more, give up the rest of it
(I know) There's no use trying
So just stop fighting

Pelican Rapids

And there's a way
That you want her to be
And there's a way
That it will never be

And what you are
And what you do
Is never enough reason
To be sorry
Copy paste is not good for health
Why do you
And why do you do

And there's nothing wrong
With the way you feel
And everything will be all right
If I could just hold on to you

Desert Call

I saw you in my dream last night
You were laughing, but you didn't say why
I tried to speak, but words wouldn't come

Will you come back
Will we ever know
For this moment of our life ends
Or say can you see how we fall

And are we ever gonna make it alone
Are we ever gonna make it on our own
Are we ever gonna make it back home
Copy paste is not good for health
And when your need is high like the moon
I'm gonna wish you all over me, too
And grab that lifeboat and, baby, just cruise

Will you come back
Will we ever know
For this moment of our life ends
Or say can you see how we fall

And are we ever gonna make it alone
Are we ever gonna make it on our own
Are we ever gonna make it back home

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I'm free
I'm free
I'm free

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I'm free

The Only One

Babe, I know it's been hard
I won't let you go
Feel my heart
My love is here to stay, yeah

You know I want it all far too much
You're more than I could take
The world's enough
I don't want to know

You're the only one that I ever loved
The only one that I'm thinking of
And you should know
You should know
Copy paste is not good for health
I put on the brakes, I can't stand
She says, "yes, you can", but I cannot
I just say your name

You're the only one that I ever loved
The only one that I'm thinking of
And you should know
You should know, you should know, you should know
You're the only one that I'll ever love

I know that you're already gone
And there's no time for second chances
If you would only look into my eyes
You would know that it's not a lie
But it's time

Only one that I ever loved
The only one that I'm thinking of

Babe, I know it's been hard
I won't let you go
Feel my heart

Heavy Heart

Heavy heart
Dancing out of time
I'll be yours
And you'll be mine

We never really go away
We just fade out and out
In black space

You think no one could ever change
But it's been a while
Since you've seen my face

And look up, the sky's falling
Hold on to nothing
You can't take it where we're going
You can't take it where we're going
You never come
Copy paste is not good for health
But nothing ever quite happens
The way you think it will
You see the lights start dancing
As you swallow the poison pill
Oh until

And it's not until we're faced with death
We truly understand
What's given so freely

And of all the things I've learned down here
In my time on Earth
This one still brings me
To my knees

Is love
Is all we hold
Is love
So big

Until Now

I never opened my eyes 'til now
I never really realised 'til now
There was ever any question in how
And not now

I never held my head 'til now
I'd never even seen my bed 'til now
Of all the raking in the dark
It was just a little spark
'Til now

You've got some kind of sweetness
Tied up in the string I've been tugging on
But I'm pulling now

I never honoured my past 'til now
I never even tried to run fast 'til now
There's been no comfort in the sound
'Til now

You've been looking through the window 'til now
You've been waiting for that window to come down
But it's not like that
No, it'll never be like that
I know

And you pack some kind of sweetness
Tied up in the string I've been tugging on
But I'm pulling now
I said I'm pulling now
Copy paste is not good for health
And you've got some kind of sweetness
Tied up in the string I've been tugging on
But I'm pulling now

Hymnal

The moon is setting on the sea
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

And I know that you are there for me
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Copy paste is not good for health
Soon dawn will break
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

NON ALBUMS TRACKS

Breathe / Time

(Pink Floyd cover / Holly Miranda & The Antlers / Live at Maxwell's, Hoboken, New Jersey, USA, 2009-10-03)

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave, but don't leave me
Look around and choose your own ground

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave

Run, run, rabbit, run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one

For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be
Copy paste is not good for health
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
And the sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The song is over, the time is gone, thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come in cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire

Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bells
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells

Bye Bye Beauté

(Coralie Clément cover / Nada Surf feat. Holly Miranda / If I Had A Hi-Fi LP)

Puisqu'il faut une fin
Puisqu'on ne se verra plus jamais
De la vie
Sur la bouche
Ou en douce

Puisque même un rien
Puisque tu as trop peur
Que je ne vois plus mes pieds
Dans quelque été
Tu diras juste

Bye bye
Bye bye, beauté
Bye bye
Bye bye, beauté
Copy paste is not good for health
S'il faut un coupable
S'il te faut un motif
Alors dessine-le
À même le sable
À même l'été

Nous rentrerons à Paris
Le coeur bien lourd
Un vendredi
En trois mots
Vers la bouche
De métro

Bye bye
Bye bye, beauté
Bye bye
Bye bye, beauté
Bye bye
Bye bye, beauté
Bye bye
Bye bye, beauté

Ça finira comme je l'ai dit
Dans les larmes, sous la pluie
Tout finira comme je l'ai prédit
Sans vacarme, sans un cri

Peut-être même un vendredi
Sous une rame, à Bastille
Ça finira comme je l'ai dit
Comme une panne dans la vie

Candy

(The Singles: Scarlett Johansson, Este Haim, Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris and Julia Haltigan)

Boy
You got me craving sweets again
'Cause, boy
My tooth be aching for your skin
Boy
You've got me in the mood for love
'Cause, boy
You're my chocolate from above
Copy paste is not good for health
You're the candy to my heart
Ooh candy to my heart
You're the candy to my heart
Ooh candy to my heart

Boy
I make it pieces like a gum
'Cause, boy
I'm melting from your tongue
Boy
I'm your lollipop, beware
'Cause, boy
I love your dreamy stare

You're the candy to my heart
Ooh candy to my heart
You're the candy to my heart
Ooh candy to my heart

You're the candy to my heart
Ooh candy to my heart
You're the candy to my heart
Ooh candy to my heart

I don't know 'bout no fast cars
Only sweet things and candy bars
You make my mouth water, yum, yum, pop
Gimme them lips, I can't be stopped
Unwrap the wrapper, what will I find
Handsome boy model blowing my mind
Sugar, sugar, sugar, pour it over me
I'm gooey like the gum that drip from the sweets

You're the candy to my heart (candy to my heart)
Ooh candy to my heart (candy to my heart)
You're the candy to my heart (candy to my heart)
Ooh candy to my heart (candy to my heart)

You're the candy to my heart (candy to my heart)
Ooh candy to my heart (candy to my heart)
You're the candy to my heart (candy to my heart)
Ooh candy to my heart (candy to my heart)

Dreams

(Fleetwood Mac cover / The Morning Benders & Holly Miranda / Live at De Affaire, Nijmegen, 2010)

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down

It's only right that you would play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lost
Copy paste is not good for health
Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You'll know

Now here I go again
I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself

It's only me who can wrap around your dreams and
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell
Dreams of loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You'll know
You'll know

Ex-Factor

(Lauryn Hill cover / Choose To See EP)

It could all be so simple
But you'd rather make it hard
And loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars

So tell me who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
'Cause no one loves you more than me
And no one ever will
Copy paste is not good for health
Is this just a silly game
That forces you to act this way
That forces you to scream my name
Then pretend that you can't stay

So tell me who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
'Cause no one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't working (it ain't working)
It ain't working (it ain't working)

And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy (this is crazy)
This is crazy

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself
As painful as this thing has been
I just can't be with no one else

See, I know what we got to do
You let go and I'll let go, too
'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't working (it ain't working)
It ain't working (it ain't working)

And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy (this is crazy)
This is crazy

Care for me, care for me
I know you care for me
There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me
Cry for me, cry for me
I know you'd die for me
Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

Care for me, care for me
I know you care for me
There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me
Cry for me, cry for me
I know you'd die for me
Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

Fourth Of July

(Sufjan Stevens cover)

The evil it spread like a fever ahead
It was night when you died, my firefly
What could I have said to raise you from the dead
Oh could I be the sky on the Fourth of July

"Well, you do enough talk
My little hawk, why do you cry
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn
Or the Fourth of July
We're all gonna die"

Sitting at the bed with the halo at your head
Was it all a disguise, like Junior High
Where everything was fiction, future and prediction
Now where am I, my fading supply
Copy paste is not good for health
"Did you get enough love, my little dove
Why do you cry
And I'm sorry I left, but it was for the best
Though it never felt right
My little Versailles"

The hospital asked should the body be cast
Before I say goodbye, my star in the sky
Such a funny thought to wrap you up in cloth
Do you find it all right, my dragonfly

"Shall we look at the moon, my little loon
Why do you cry
Make the most of your life while it is rife
While it is light

"Well, you do enough talk
My little hawk, why do you cry
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn
Or the Fourth of July
We're all gonna die"

We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die

High & Dry

(Radiohead cover / Live at Bush Hall, 2014-10-14)

Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that's pretty clever, don't you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition
Kill yourself to never ever stop
Drying up in conversation
You will be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Hold On We're Going Home

(Drake cover)

I got my eyes on you
You're everything that I see
I want your high love and emotion endlessly
I can't get over you
You left your mark on me
I want your high love and emotion endlessly

'Cause you're a good girl and you know it
You act so different around me
'Cause you're a good girl and you know it
I know exactly who you could be

And just hold on we're going home
And just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
And just hold on we're going home, home
Copy paste is not good for health
I got my eyes on you
You're everything that I see
I want your high love and emotion endlessly
I can't get over you
You left your mark on me
I want your high love and emotion endlessly

'Cause you're a good girl and you know it
You act so different around me
'Cause you're a good girl and you know it
I know exactly who you could be

And just hold on we're going home
And just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
And just hold on we're going home, home

You're the girl
You're the one
Gave you everything I love
I think there's something, baby
I think there's something

You're the girl
You're the one
Gave you everything I love
I think there's something, baby
I think there's something

'Cause you're a good girl and you know it
You act so different around me
'Cause you're a good girl and you know it
I know exactly who you could be

And just hold on we're going home
And just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
And just hold on we're going home

And just hold on we're going home
And just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
And just hold on we're going home, home

I'd Rather Go Blind

(Etta James cover / Live)

Something told me it was over
When I saw you and her talking
Something deep down in my soul said, "Cry, girl"
When I saw you and that girl walking out

I would rather, I would rather go blind, boy
Than to see you walk away from me, child, no

'Cause, you see, I love you so much
That I don't wanna watch you leave me, baby
Most of all, most of all, I just don't wanna be free
Copy paste is not good for health
I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking
Of your kiss and your warm embrace
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now, baby
Revealed the tears that was on my face

Baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind, boy
Than to see you walk away from me, child, from me
Baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind, boy
Than to see you walk away from me, child, boy

Love Came Here

(Lhasa cover / Party Trick EP)

There is no end to this story
No final tragedy or glory
Love came here and never left

Now that my heart is open
It can't be closed or broken
Love came here and never left

Now I'll have to live with loving you forever
Although our days of living life together
Of living life together are over

There's nothing here to throw away
I came to you in light of day
And love came here and never left
And love came here and never left

Love Is Real

(Theophilus London feat. Holly Miranda / Timez Are Weird These Days LP)

Theophilus London:
I fell in love with a disco queen
In the heart of the city at a bistro scene
A long story short, chick kind of lost
Turned to the house that I bought
We took a trip down Mexico
I nearly shot myself like Plaxico
But with a mouth so fire she was technical
And don't turn into a vegetable, hey

Holly Miranda:
You walk to the sun
I sleep through the day
But nothing more
The sky lit up the stars
A million miles apart
To get where you are

Theophilus London:
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times

Catch rest in the motel room
When the roosters call I escape this doom
The humming bird meets the humming man
Six years later you will understand
I spoke four words with her last night, night, yikes
The motherland for another life or another man, damn

Holly Miranda:
You walk to the sun
I sleep through the day
But nothing more
The sky lit up the stars
A million miles apart
To get where you are

Theophilus London:
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Copy paste is not good for health
Try and make the most of this
Don't throw it all away
She had to change her number twice
And no time to count the days
She a disco queen
Party all night like her shit's so clean
If you meet those eyes
It might be me in a deep disguise

Holly Miranda:
You walk to the sun
I sleep through the day
But nothing more
The sky lit up the stars
A million miles apart
To get where you are

Theophilus London:
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times

Holly Miranda:
You walk to the show
I sleep through the day
But nothing more
The sky lit up the stars
A million miles apart
To get where you are

Theophilus London:
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real
Just look at the times
Is that what you want
'Cause love is real

Lover, You Should've Come Over

(Jeff Buckley cover / Yours Truly Session)

Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners
Parading in a wake of sad relations as their shoes fill up with water
And maybe I'm too young to keep good love from going wrong
But tonight you're on my mind, so you never know

And when I'm broken down and hungry for your love with no way to feed it
And where are you tonight, child, you know how much I need it
Too young to hold on and too old to just break free and run
Copy paste is not good for health
Sometimes a man gets carried away
When he feels like he should be having his fun
Much too blind to see the damage he's done
And sometimes a man must awake to find that really he has no one

So I'll wait for you and I will burn
Will I ever see your sweet return
Oh will I ever learn
Oh lover

Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in
And burning in the corner is the only one who dreams he had you with him
And my body turns and yearns for a sleep that won't ever come

It's never over
Oh my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
No, it's never over
All my blood when I slept so soft against her
No, it's never over
She's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
No, it's never over
All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter

Well, maybe I'm just too young
To keep good love from going wrong

Oh... lover, you should've come over
'Cause it's not too late
Sweet lover, you should've come over
Oh lover, well, I'll wait for you
Love, love, love...

Make Me Laugh

(Ambrosia Parsley cover)

Make me laugh when it's goodbye
With the bill and the body count so high
We're out of bread, the water's red
What a lousy photograph
So make me laugh

Make me laugh, keep your lullabies
Who could sleep underneath a fallen sky
The petrified, the bitter bride
Don't they need a paragraph
To make them laugh
Copy paste is not good for health
Around this place, there's not a face
Without sorrow's autograph
But what could chase the tears and lace away
Like a funny epitaph

Make me laugh
If birds should lose their song
If the sweet honeybees get up and gone
Through record highs, when oceans rise
Won't you come bend me in half
With a laugh

Only You

(The Platters cover)

Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright
Only you and you alone
Can thrill me like you do
And fill my heart with love for only you

Only you can make this change in me
For it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do
You're my dream come true
My one and only you

Only you can make this change in me
For it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do
You're my dream come true
My one and only you
(One and only you)

Singular Acceptance

(Sleep On Fire EP)

When you were lost, I was lost too
And when you were free, I was free
Anywhere high, and anywhere low
Anyone can see I am true
Copy paste is not good for health
When you were love, I was love too
When you were fear, I was fear
And one thing you want, one thing you need
All eyes on you

Something On Your Mind

(Karen Dalton cover)

Yesterday
Any way you made it was just fine
Saw you turn your days into night-times
Didn't you know
You can't make it without ever even trying
And something's on your mind, isn't it

Let these times
Show you that you're breaking up your minds
Leaving all your dreams too far behind
Didn't you see
You can't make it without ever even trying
And something's on your mind, isn't it
Copy paste is not good for health
Maybe another day you'll want to feel another way
You can't stop crying
You haven't got a thing to say
If you feel you want to run away
There's no use trying anyway
I've seen the writing on the wall
Who cannot maintain will always fall
Didn't you know
You can't make it without ever even trying
And something's on your mind, isn't it
Something's on your mind, isn't it
Something's on your mind

Stand By Me

(Ben E King cover)

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No, I won't be afraid
No, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea
Copy paste is not good for health
I won't cry
I won't cry
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me

Whenever you're in trouble
Won't you stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me

Two

(The Antlers cover)

In the middle of the night I was sleeping sitting up
When a doctor came to tell me, "Enough is enough"
He brought me out into the hall, I could have sworn it was haunted
And told me something that I didn't know that I wanted to hear
That there was nothing that I could do to save you
The choir's gonna sing and this thing is gonna kill you
Something in my throat made my next words shake
And something in the wires made the light bulbs break

There was glass inside my feet and raining down from the ceiling
It opened up the scars that had just finished healing
It tore apart the canyon running down your femur
I though that it was beautiful, it made me a believer

And as it opened I could hear you howling from your room
But I hid out in the hall until the hurricane blew
When I reappeared and tried to give you something for the pain
You came to hating me again and just sang your refrain
Copy paste is not good for health
You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare
You were just a little kid and they cut your hair
Then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying
They should have listened, they thought that you were lying

Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up
Built the gears in your head, now he greases them up
And no one paid attention when you just stopped eating
"Eighty seven pounds" and this all bears repeating

Tell me when you think that we became so unhappy
Wearing silver rings with nobody clapping
When we moved here together we were so disappointed
Sleeping out of tune with our dreams disjointed

It killed me to see you getting always rejected
But I didn't mind the things you threw, the phones I deflected
I didn't mind you blaming me for all your mistakes
I just held you in the door frame through all of the earthquakes

But you packed up your clothes in that bag every night
I would try to grab your ankles, what a pitiful sight
But after over a year, I stopped trying to stop you
From stomping out that door, coming back like you always do

Well, no one's gonna fix it for us, no one can
You say that no one's gonna listen, no one understands
So there's no open doors and there's no way to get though
There's no other witnesses, just us two

There's two people living in one small room
From your two half-families tearing at you
Two ways to tell the story, no one worries
Two silver rings on our fingers in a hurry

Two people talking inside your brain
Two people believing that I'm the one to blame
Two different voices coming out of your mouth
While I'm too cold to care and too sick to shout

You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare
You were just a little kid and they cut your hair
Then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying
They should have listened, they thought that you were lying

Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up
Built the gears in your head, now he greases them up
And no one paid attention when you just stopped eating
"Eighty seven pounds" and this all bears repeating

Without You

(Tobias Jesso Jr cover)

Why can't you just love me
Should I move on or should I wait
And how'd you get so high above me
I reach higher every day
Copy paste is not good for health
But nothing changes
No, it all just stays the same

I can hardly breathe without you
There is no future I want to see without you
I just don't know who I would be without you
There is nothing out there for me without you
Without you

I feel like I just hit the ground
Wish I could show you what it's like
But you will never come down
And I've been staying up at night

To face the changes
But they all just stay the same

I can hardly breathe without you
There is no future I want to see without you
I just don't know who I would be without you
There is nothing out there for me without you
Without you

Oh what have you got to lose
Oh what have you got to lose
Oh what have you got to lose

I can hardly breathe without you
There is no future I want to see without you
I just don't know who I would be without you
There is nothing out there for me without you
There is nothing out there
There is nothing out there
There is nothing out there
Without you
