You spoke to me like you knew me, The very first time we met You skipped around, told me to be louder, be prouder Said I've got a lot to give, to give, to give You believed in me, day after day You believed in me, again and again You believed in me, day after day You believed in me What were you smiling about? I thought I saw you look at me You seemed to identify with everything I said, Everything, everything You believed in me, day after day You believed in me, again and again You believed in me, day after day You believed in me Woah, would you cut me from you story so easily? Is it so hard to say goodbye? All this silence makes me wonder if it's fear you're feeling Why is it so hard to say goodbye? Whatever you choose to do next I know that you will give you best, and better, and better I know that you know we are all learning You wanted to teach me how to participate, Enter a circle of people "Talk to the others, don't be alone for a long time" Well I'm talking to you because I want to, I wanna know you (repeat) Do you believe in me? I wanna be real, I know I'm real Do you believe in me? I wanna be real, I know I'm real Do you believe in me?

Everyday, everyday I hear people say that they know for sure Everyday, everyday I remind myself that there is always more Everyday, looking for the more or less Looking for the everyday Looking for the something else There is always more or less, So much more...

I didn't mean to hurt you That's the truth I swear The crime is mine I take the blame But everybody had a part to play So everybody has a price to pay Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away Come back they call to me Footprints fade away into the sea Come back they call to me Footprints fade away into the sea For you my love is undercover Surely you doubt and wonder The crime is mine I take the blame But everybody had a part to play So everybody has a price to pay Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away Come back they call to me Footprints fade away into the sea Come back they call to me Footprints fade away into the sea

I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know All the rest I'll try my best But lately I tire so easily Lately I tire so easily You're asking me to be a different species But I was born this way, this way I know we are all changing, like the river's rearranging But some things stay the same, stay the same I've done so many things that I never dreamed I could Every time it's a surprise, I'm grateful I made it And there are days I wish I could catch the same wave again But I move again... I always move again, I always move again, I always move again (Saxophone solo) I always move again, I always move again, I always move again, I always move again, I make a home again, I make it home again I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know All the rest I'll try my best But lately I tire so easily Lately I tire so easily You're asking me to be a different species But I was born this way, this way I know we are all changing, like the river's rearranging But some things stay the same, stay the same (repeat) I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know I'm only good at what I know

The Irony 05:38
I apologise, I apologise I apologise, I'm sorry Let the cold rain wash over me Oh it's the irony, I know to speak but words defeat me Silence held me back and I'm alone (repeat) Let me hiss a whisper, Listen close I won't resist I never meant to let you go away (repeat) I apologise, I apologise I apologise, I'm sorry Let the cold rain wash over me Oh it's the irony, I know to speak but words defeat, deceive, defeat, deceive me Ooooh oh it's the irony, I know to speak but words defeat, deceive, defeat, deceive me Ooooh oh it's the irony, I know to speak but words defeat, deceive, defeat, deceive me Silence held me back and I'm alone Back and I'm a- Silence held me back and I'm alone Thrown back into the water You've opened my eyes again Thrown back into the water You've opened my eyes again Thrown back into the water You've opened my eyes again Oh you've opened my eyes again. Thanks to you my friend Thanks to you my friend Thanks to you my friend, we can laugh we don't pretend Thanks to you my friend, this is not the end No this is not the end You've opened my eyes, You've opened my eyes Hopefully I'll see you again

When I pass you, I don't turn, no I don't turn When I pass you, I don't turn Or else I'll never learn Gotta be stern and strong Although I know my heart will keep burning on for you Whenever I see you, I sit with a smile Whenever I see you, I sit with a smile And it will stay for a while Cannot pretend to ignore the thunder and lightning that comes when I - Ooooh....

Elle danse avec la nuit toute seule Y a ni lune ni étoile Dans le ciel noir les nuages bougent Grâce au vent qui chuchote une chanson, Une histoire que personne ne connaît plus Sauf les gens qui écoutent bien Aux avis les tiens, les miens Ainsi que la rivière qui pleure ses larmes sur la terre

Slow It Down 03:10
They tell you no time for laughter They tell you playtime is over But I say stay alive and look at the stars Reminder of who we were in the past What on earth have we become? They tell you not much use in dreaming They tell you calm down, stop your screaming But I say stay alive and look at the stars Reminder of who we were in the past What on earth have we become? They tell you no time for laughter They tell you playtime is over But I say stay alive and look at the stars Reminder of who we were in the past What on earth have we become? They tell you not much use in dreaming They tell you calm down, stop your screaming But I say slow it down and give it some love Don't push, don't shove

She was caught on a page, No one knew her age She walked in circles, had no hurdles She had a sparkle in her eye Telling of times gone by She was lost in the waves They told her to be brave But in her solitude she let the blue ocean water hold her safe This is her happy place She let the sound escape her heart Where years of shooting stars lay sleeping She felt a change, there was no danger All she saw was beauty (repeat) Heart sound, heart sound Shooting stars lay sleeping Oh heart sound, heart sound Shooting stars lay sleeping

about

STAV. Melbourne, Australia

Not as quiet as you would think, mesmerising bilingual folk-pop artist STAV. blurs the lines between singing and spoken word in a mostly Australian accent and unschooled Hebrew. Introspective and playful, her persuasive melodies explore migration, her identity across generations and womanhood. FAA 'Young Artist of the Year' 2018 ... more
