Girl Blue

5 albums

If you like Alanis Morissette, Jeff Buckley, and crying in public, you’re going to love Girl Blue. Writing deeply felt songs with strong singable hooks, singer/songwriter/producer Arielle O’Keefe is absolutely one to watch. She’s been featured on top Spotify playlists (New Music Friday) and charts (#2 on US Viral Charts), in national commercials, and on top blogs like the Huffington Post. It’s been said “she…has the kind of spark that makes stars” (The Alt), and most especially as a live performer she has an authenticity that regularly moves audience members to tears. She has based herself in Troy, NY, where she writes and records music.

Lyrics:

Now there you go again, you say You want your freedom Well who am I to keep you down It's only right that you should 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 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 my crystal visions I keep my visions to myself, it's only me Who wants to 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 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 will know, you'll know

Lyrics:

Met you in your shadow dark Absinthe bar You shaved your head It left a scar We bunkered down Windowless room Our hateful sex I love, you lose You bathed me Laid me down clean sheets We took half of that blue pill each Our vacant dates Carnival shows That Ferris wheel Our highest low I should have believed you when you said you felt the rope around your neck Instead I believed you when you said that we were back to back And I've never been one to ask for a hand Never been one to take what was given Never seen love so cold and undressed Never lived life so lifeless Oh, my one and only Only leaves me lonely Only leaves me lonely Oh, if I could only Leave my one and only Read all of your movie scripts with murder scenes Familiar faces all I see My happy made you sad and sly Your honest made me beg for lies A temper tantrum's bloated world Staccato man, limber girl The rippling walls The paper moon The dial tone The dancers doomed And I should have believed you when you said you felt the rope around your throat Instead I believed you when you said you still had hope And I've never been one to ask for a hand Never been one to take what was given Never seen love so cold and undressed Never lived life so lifeless Oh, my one and only Only leaves me lonely Only leaves me lonely Oh, if I could only Leave my one and only Your creeping creature My bloodless heart You fill me up My shadow dark I love you like I love myself Like no one, like nobody else I should have believed you when you said you felt the rope around your neck Instead I believed you when you said that we were back to back Now I've never been one to ask for a hand Never been one to take what was given Never seen love so cold and undressed Never lived life so lifeless Oh, my one and only Only leaves me lonely Only leaves me lonely Oh, if I could only Leave my one and only

Lyrics:

Yes, I remember how I met you But we will not talk about it Reminiscing’s what we left behind To get where we are now To get where we are now Yet, sometimes it feels like we are still Those young and stunning strangers You threw a shadow in my spotlight I had a song called danger I had a song called danger But now I’m swimming in nothing Only blues are on my side I got nothing to hope for, honey I got nothing to hide Now I’m swimming in nothing Only blues are on my mind And that ocean’s endless deep And that ocean’s endless wide, but Every time you look in my eyes It’s like fire under water, fire under water Every time you look in my eyes It’s like fire under water, fire under water I go down, down, down, down, down But I come up burning every time Yes, I remember how I met you The serendipities and details It’s these kinds of moments that Give me a reason to believe Give me a reason to believe Every ship that I had captained Had been lost to stormy weather Until you came along and I thought we just might get home together I thought we might get home together But now I’m swimming in nothing Only blues are on my side I got nothing to hope for, honey I got nothing to hide Now I’m swimming in nothing Only blues are on my mind And that ocean’s endless deep And that ocean’s endless wide, but Every time you look in my eyes It’s like fire under water, fire under water Every time you look in my eyes It’s like fire under water, fire under water I go down, down, down, down, down I go down, down, down, deep down I go down, down, down, down, down I still come up burning every time

Lyrics:

I don't know what to do with these hands of mine It looks like I’ve got twenty fingers, way they’re shaking all the time I am a child, I know that always But I'm a daughter, and that I constantly forget I’ve got a head that's like a bomb just threatening to detonate And a heart that pumps as well as any other but still aches I'm in love with an unforeseen version of a person I've already met And I am humbled and afraid of all the things that I know that I don't know yet They say work hard They say play They say work hard They say play But they think hard work is a montage from a movie And I keep playing the same song because it moves me Sometimes I feel the way I light the room It’s as warm as any sun but shines like only can the moon Yet for all that I can be I am more when I can see how bad he wants to be my fool And I'm learning to get over feeling small Yeah, most people, when they meet me now, they treat me really tall Yet for all that I may be I am nothing so quickly when he don't call And I am humbled and afraid to break a thing that I have never touched at all They say love hard They say don't stay They say love hard But don’t give it all away But they think true love is a montage from a movie And I keep sticking to this man ’cause he still moves me I don't know if I’ve missed the point by now If the winds I kept at bay have finally blown my house right down I put all my energy toward saving one thing To watch everything else drown But there's got to be a fire that burns above Even with my shaking hands I can still grasp that kind of love It is safe and it is real It's the kind that makes you feel forever young And I am humbled and afraid that I won't know it when it finally shows up They say work hard They say play They say love hard Then run away Maybe life is just a montage from a movie But I’ll keep repeating the same song long as it moves me

Call Me Home I Am Not A Star

Lyrics:

Morning after nauseous half disasters The calm is not so quiet in my head It says you drink too much You're not in love with anyone You'll never say the things you never said Oh it all seems really simple in a picture Somebody you don't know always works hard And you're always just nursing some hangover Guilt tripping over homeless works of art I've been lost, lost, lost brother I've been blinded by the sun and the father I've got more, more, more than I can shoulder But I'll be fine, when I find my way home Morning after nauseous half disasters And I swear I'll get my act together soon Cause this is not at all what I imagined, no When I thought of all the things that I might do Oh it all seems really simple when you're little Naivety is such a fuzzy friend I'm not saying I'm wrecked or I am ruined no I just mistook the beginning for the end And I got lost, lost, lost brother I got blinded by the sun and the father I've got more, more, more than I can shoulder But I'll be fine, when I find my way home Look, sometimes love is the reflection of a building in the water On a night when everybody stays at home And sometimes love's a puddled puzzle piece, obsolete and soggy That becomes a whole new picture on its own So we can bitch about how fast the world is spinning Or we can use the orbit for a whole new view I know love will be the answer to my wandering Maybe I got lost so I could find you I think I got lost so I could find you So when you're lost lost lost brother When you fly too close to the sun and the father When the world is more than you can shoulder You come and find me, you can call me home Come and find me, you can call me home Come and find me, call me home

Lyrics:

I am not a star, only shining in the dark How can you work so hard and still always miss the mark? When the thoughts inside cannot outsmart the dart I change the design of my divine genetic bars I wanna fly Somebody send me up to space I wanna go Get me away from my own race I am bleeding from a hole that I cannot find But when you touch it I feel infinitely inspired The clowns and crazies are all around us baby And you cry At night Yeah I cry sometimes At night Cause I wanna fly Somebody send me up to space I wanna go Get me away from my own race I wanna fly Baby make haste I wanna go Get me away from my own face Cut me dry Bleed my bed Rock and roll it stole my head Cut me dry Bleed my bed Rock and roll it stole my head Cut me dry Bleed my bed Rock and roll it stole my head It stole my head It stole my head, head, head, head, head I am not a star I'm a whole fucking galaxy I don't subscribe to your mediated fantasies I’m crouching in crop circles avoiding voices saying tell me every mistake you've ever made and I'll decide if you're insane I gotta fly Somebody send me up to space I gotta go Get me away from my own race I, I gotta fly Baby I can't stay I gotta go, oh Get me away from my own face (Get me away from my own face) Get me away from my own face (Get me away from my own face) Get me away from my own face

Lyrics:

we’re breaking through or we’re breaking down it’s hard in the dark now to figure it out and i can be clever and i can be cool but i’m trying to be honest with you ‘cause you glitter at night like a lightning parade while i thunder and hunger for some kind of savior we are so clever, the coolest of cool but i’d rather we tried to be true and if i ever told you what you had to do if i made you feel as if you had to choose well it’s only because i’m the one here with something to lose so maybe i went and i broke my own heart i’ve been thinking it’s time that i ripped it a part ‘cause i’m getting tired of ending up back where i started and now i got my eyes on, on the horizon it’s calling me now calling me now i rolled a pair of dice they landed on paradise and baby i’m taking it i got my eyes on, on the horizon it’s shining all around me now imagine the churches where people go pray and imagine the houses where all of them stay if i’ve been in one, i’ve been in them all they are buildings, some day they will fall but deeper inside is a heart that’s alive it may quit its beating, but it will always survive it is tied by the strings of our whole history we are blind, but someday we will see and i will always be grateful for the dumb shit you’ve done and i will never hate you for giving me less than none this kind of a war it is never so easily won and so maybe i went and i broke my own heart i’ve been thinking it’s time that i ripped it a part ‘cause i’m getting tired of ending up back where i started and now i got my eyes on, on the horizon it’s calling me now calling me now i rolled a pair of dice they landed on paradise and baby i’m taking it i got my eyes on, on the horizon it’s shining all around me now
