about

In “You’ve Got Me”, Naomi blends retro-style grooves with cool pop. Her smooth vocals span the sultry blues of Norah Jones to the ambience of Sarah McLachlan, and her inclusion of both vintage and current keyboard sounds creates a tasty genre she calls “piano soul”.

Track Name: You've Got Me
You've got me right where you want me
Oh the way that you haunt me with those blue, blue eyes

You've got me waiting in the crowd, do you spot me
You're coming over now you say, baby, what a nice surprise

I can't stop blushing, my pulse keeps rushing
Is this really happening now

Oh I'm gonna fall, fall fall, I never saw it coming
I'll step into thin air, air, and I don't care
'Cause the song you've got me humming
It's taking me there
Hardly know you, but I just wanna show you
All that could be
You've got me

I dreamed you, and all the things that we'd do
So now I feel like I know you and all that makes you smile

Out of the blue, there's something coming over you
So now I think it might be true that we've both known for awhile

We've both been chasing, is your heart racing
Cause that's what I'm feeling now

Baby, please, let's not dance too fast
'Cause I've been waiting, waiting for you
Wanna make this moment last
Track Name: Stay Away
Once upon a time not too long ago I met you
It's not a fairytale, just something that fell into
I liked you a lot, so I gave you a shot
Some things got hot, but now it's not

We were cool, playing the love game a little while
You were smooth, you swept me in with your sweet, sweet style
It happened so fast, oh but it couldn't last
I think I should have asked you just to
Stay, stay, stay, just stay away
Stay, stay, stay, just stay away now

Now there's too many nights, I'm wondering just whatcha been up to
Oh but you should know that being apart is something I've gotten used to
Not gonna lie, my tears are dry
I'm saying goodbye, so now all I want from you is to
Stay, stay, stay, just stay away
Stay, stay, stay, just stay away, now

All those bridges made a fire to light up the sky, and the river is wide
So you cast your line, think I'm waiting for you on the other side
You can't reel me in, don't wanna sink or swim
Yeah I'm done, done with the mess you're in
I think that I'm gonna
Stay, stay, stay, just stay away
Stay, stay, stay, just stay away

Oh I'm gonna stay away, stay away, yeah I'm gonna stay away, stay, stay stay away
Track Name: Faraway City
Let's get lost together
Find ourselves wherever
A little lane will lead us
Gonna wander tonight
Following the music and soft lights
No one will need us

Thank you sweet foreign wine
All my fears are gone
Suddenly I'm in your arms
For a new dance, in a new land, to a new song

You and me in a faraway city
We are lost and found
Come on, come on, and dance with me
As the sun goes down

Cathedrals along the sky
Shining in the night
Let's go find the river running through
Make our own mysteries
On a bridge of centuries
Surrendering a memory with you

Oooh who knows how it ends
Maybe we'll just be friends
But I don't know the law here
All I know, tonight, is I want you my dear
Track Name: Thank You For Loving Me
Finding you was the best thing that I could do
Having you, oh that took some time
Well yeah I knew that I loved you
But a twist of fate, it made us wait
And now our love is bigger than the sky

Thank you for loving me
My heart is filled up all by you
Thank you for loving
My heart will never stop loving you

Baby, you're my sweetness in the morning
Oh baby, and so sweet in the night
Well I know it's real 'cause you make me feel
Like I can't keep up with all the love
As we overflow, the two of us on fire

Now I love to watch you sleep
You know why, it's 'cause you belong to me

I'm holding on to this one
yeah I'm holding on to this one
Holding on to this one
Holding on to this one
Track Name: Ship Going Down
This isn't a sad romance getting better at the end
It's not like the movies, no, this isn't gonna mend
You thought you'd always love me, and you're all I'd ever known
How dare you even wonder why I haven't let you go

I can't feel you like I want to your heart has been moving on
How long my dear have you been gone
I've been raising sails on a ship going down

Coming at you in a storm, bringing my thunder
Doesn't matter to a love already six feet under
I'll make the most of these feelings, but I can't make you stay
I've been swimming up this river while you have just let it wash you away

Not gonna cry for you anymore
Not gonna try to save you anymore

You think I would've learned by now
I'm gonna get over you somehow
Track Name: Angel In The Snow
Wrapped in the beauty, everything is white
Lost in a blanket from the sky

An elusive path led me here
All I bring along is hope, nothing is clear

Surrender to a fragile miracle
Make an angel in the snow
Surrender, it's just one day to let go

Branches of lace deep in the evergreen
A cathedral ceiling high above me

For a little while fears are frozen
Lying here in a dark storm's creation

After this the world seems brighter
And somehow my steps are lighter
