lyrics

Your dream of being a doctor was in vain
A crashing bus caused you a life of pain
In hospital you painted in your bed Surreal but it was what was in your head
Then Diego came
You flew into his flame Drinking in the pain
With paint and tears and love
Frida you surrendered your smile
Frida the man was your child
and your lover and your universe for a while.
The ecstasy and torture of his love
The marriage of the elephant to the dove
Crippled by your legs and his affairs
In the shadows of his murals you were there
With lovers of your own
Still you felt alone
The need for him had grown With paint and tears and love
Frida you surrendered your smile
Frida the man was your child
and your lover and your universe for a while.
Everything was blue inside the house
The man of words was quiet as a mouse
You’d painted all that needed to be said He lay there right beside you on your bed
Sacred as a psalm
He held you in his arms
Til your mind was calm
Until the pain... faded from your head
Frida you surrendered your smile
Frida the man was your child
Frida you surrendered your smile
Frida the man was your child
and your lover and your universe for a while

about

Beautifully Mad Sydney, Australia

Breathtaking original music reminiscent of the beauty of James Taylor, some honey from Melody Gardot, a lyrical spice of Cohen washed down with some Waits-like humour. A musical flame that licks at the heels of Folk and Jazz
