about

Emily Baker Brighton

From the glacial beauty of Northern Lights to the homesick strum of Tennessee, you’ll hear the echoes of Carole King, Ryan Adams and K.D. Lang. These nine heartfelt songs detail love, ambition and human fragility – all told through Emily’s distinctive, soulful voice.

If you like your music real and raw, you’ll be swept away by All At Sea.

Track Name: Follow The Sun
Time's not on your side,
So you're counting on the moon to pull the tide,
In your ever changing fragile state of mind,
You're right to care,

You're hanging round in stations,
Following trains you're never taking,
Who knows what hand your fate's in,
Follow the sun,
You'll know what room to wait in,
You're almost there,
Follow the sun,
Follow the sun,
(now now now now)

It's like you always knew,
But you take into account the points of view,
Of everyone that clings like rocks round you,
But now they're not there,

You fall on out of love,
When your grips not strong enough,
But you've fallen out of love,
Cos your grips not strong enough,
Well you've fallen out of love,
(You fall on out of love, Your grips not strong enough for love)

So contemplate into the night,
Where the answers fade to grey through black and white,

You're hanging round in stations,
Following trains you're never taking,
Who knows what hand your fate's in,
Follow the sun,
It's only joy replacing all of the guilt that you've been facing,
Let in the freedom you're chasing,
Follow the sun,
You'll know what room to wait in,
Cos you're almost there,
Follow the sun...

Time's not on your side.
Track Name: Four Walls
I've got a secret,
It's easy to keep,
I lift up the carpet,
Sweet it beneath,
There's a mountain to climb,
But nobody knows its there,

Oh disturbing a secret,
With a knock at the door,
A telephone ringing,
But I never take the call,
So nobody knows that I'm there,

Cut me up with your words,
Bring me down to my knees,
I am broken and tired,
Fix me please,

These four walls they're gonna help me,
These four walls they're gonna save me,
These four walls they're gonna break me in the end,

And there's rainbows through windows,
Colours in bloom,
And I'm stuck in the making,
In this white cocoon,
And I could fly if I tried,
But nobody wants me up there,

Build me up with your lies,
Just pretend to me please,
Look me right in the eyes,
Straight through me,

I'm letting in the light and letting life decide its meaning,
Clever can't communicate the way your life's leaning,
Is there anybody really there?
Does anybody even care?
I'm stuck inside these four walls can you hear me?
Track Name: Lost For Words
What to pick out and say,
Now I've got every word I ever heard to settle on?
Whoever wrote the dictionary,
Couldn't put the letters in the order that you come from,
Could find nothing better than second rate letters that spell the absurd,

So while I'm defining,
You're describing,
It's so surprising that you keep on shining,

Oh you got me lost for words so I sway,
With you it's what you don't say,
Oh and you have got me lost for words even I didn't see it coming,
Got me lost for words didn't you?
I didn't see it coming got me lost for words and you.

So I pick out a turn of phrase,
And you wrap a chapter round our laughter til the book's written,
Stranger than fiction?
I've been debating if we're punctuating a modern fairy tale,
Been contemplating,
Been pinching and waiting,
I might have misheard...

That if you're defining,
Then I'm describing that I find surprising that I keep on shining,

What to pick out and say?
Now I've got every word I ever heard to settle on...
