Product Description

Flame haired Northern Irish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin introduces herself to North America with her debut album ‘Running With Scissors,’ released on February 10th, 2015 via OK!Good Records. The 10-track album is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart touching ballads, showcasing Janet’s unique and enchanting vocals, which first caught the public’s attention on Series 8 of The UK X Factor in 2011.

Running With Scissors,’ which has already hit Number 1 on the Official UK Independent Album Charts, is mainly self-penned by Janet. It was recorded in a mere 6-weeks, and features co-writes with Newton Faulkner (“Creatures of The Night” and “Hide And Seek”) and Jack Savoretti (“Delicate”), alongside a surprising cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love”. Janet’s debut is an album about growing up, becoming independent and dealing with a whole range of new emotions.

      The Creatures Of The Night,
      Me, Myself and I, And All That Comes To Life,
      The Creatures Of The Night,
      The Creatures Of The...

      In The Darkness I Can See It All, See It All, See It All,
      In The Darkness I Can See It All,
      The Creatures Of The Night

      Howling at the Moon,
      As it Creeps in the Twilight,
      And Daylight Comes to Swoon,
      For The Creatures Of The Night,
      The Creatures Of The Night,
      The Creatures Of The Night

      In The Darkness I Can See It All, See It All, See It All,
      In The Darkness I Can See It All,
      The Creatures Of The Night

      I Don't Mind Being Alone,
      I Don't Need You to Hold Me Down,
      I Find a Home in the Stars, just as Long as they Don't Burn Out,
      They Won't Burn Out, For You

    • Lyrics

      Dear love, how've you been?
      Do you still play our records On your record machine?
      "Born to die." "Nevermind."

      Dear friends, I found the key
      To the box beneath your bed where we hid everything.
      Funny how, don't need it now.

      This polaroid is fading out.

      Like a house of cards,
      We came crashing down
      And the King of Hearts' heart was never found
      Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name,
      But this is still a love song all the same.

      Hey you, how's this end?
      I know it's kinda selfish but I need a friend
      Little lies, can't survive.

      Hey boy, where'd you go?
      Has your heart got warmer now your beds got cold
      Now I know, you're alone.

      Our favourite song is fading out.

      Like a house of cards,
      We came crashing down
      And the King of Hearts' heart was never found-ound-ound
      Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name,
      But this is still a love song, this is still a love song.

      Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name,
      But this is still a love song all the same.

      They say all good things,
      They must come to an end,
      They say all good things,
      They must come to an end,
      They say all good things,
      They must come to an end,
      All good things must end.

    • Lyrics

      I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love
      I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10

      I don’t mind if you take what you need from me
      You always hide but I’m finding it hard to seek
      Oh I spy with my little eye some thing that begins with you
      Oh why are you so hard to find

      I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love
      I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10
      Sick and tired of playing hide and seek with love
      This time I’m going to hide my heart
      Were you will never find it

      We’ve been here so many times before
      It’s this game that I won’t play
      No I won’t no more
      Oh I spy with my little eye
      Something that ends with you
      Oh why are you so hard to find

      I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love
      I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10
      Sick and tired of playing hide and seek with love
      This time I’m going to hide my heart
      Were you will never find it

      You won’t find me
      You give it up
      So easily
      I’ve had enough
      It’s my turn to leave
      I won’t be caught
      So easily

      I’m so tired of playing hide and seek with love
      I won’t close my eyes and count again to 10
      Sick and tired of playing hide and seek with love
      This time I’m going to hide my heart
      Where you will never find it

    • Lyrics

      All the little pieces of my heart
      Flicker as they fall to the ground
      Perfectly askew just how I like
      But you don't need a carry to search them
      I can see them wide on my own
      Perfectly undone just how I like

      Save your scissors
      for they are rusty now
      I don't need a lighthouse
      to try and show me how

      I don't need a lifeboat
      I'm learning how to swim
      It may look like I'm drowning
      But I'm learning how to live
      I don't need your rescue
      for I'm okay now
      I can see the shoreline
      So turn your lifeboat 'round

      Even on my thoughts can be cloudy
      Silver lining's alway inside
      Perfectly unclear just how I like
      And i can get up and seeing a sunrise
      Even in the darkest of the nights
      Perfectly untime just how I like

      Save your scissors
      for they are rusty now
      I don't need a lighthouse
      to try and show me how

      I don't need a lifeboat
      I'm learning how to swim
      It may look like I'm drowning
      But I'm learning how to live
      I don't need your rescue
      for I'm okay now
      I can see the shoreline
      So turn your lifeboat 'round

      Save your scissors
      for they are rusty now
      I don't need a lighthouse
      to try and show me how

      I don't need a lifeboat
      I'm learning how to swim
      It may look like I'm drowning
      But I'm learning how to live
      I don't need your rescue
      for I'm okay now
      I can see the shoreline
      So turn your lifeboat 'round

    • Lyrics

      There's no smoke
      Without reason
      It’s a sign there's something wrong
      In my lungs
      There's a poison
      I've been breathing in to long

      There's no I,
      No I in we
      And there's no you,
      No you in me
      Cause I've been burned way beyond the third degree

      Cause your words are like gasoline
      You pour on the fire
      And the bridges you burned
      Led to our dreams
      It's just another thing that we lost

      When the spark turned into a flame
      And the flame grew much higher
      And my hope, faith and every last desire
      It's just another thing that we lost in the fire
      Just another thing that we lost

      Ashes fall
      Just like snowflakes
      That are warm against my skin
      You say that we
      Could re-build this
      Wouldn’t know where to begin

      But there's no snow
      And there's no rain
      To hide tears
      To douse these flames
      Cause I've been burned way beyond the third degree

      Cause your words are like gasoline
      You pour on the fire
      And the bridges you burned
      Led to our dreams
      It's just another thing that we lost

      When the spark turned into a flame
      And the flame grew much higher
      And my hope, faith and every last desire
      It's just another thing that we lost in the fire
      Just another thing that we lost

      Chasing, shadows
      Going nowhere
      Going nowhere
      Round in, circles
      Nothing left to say

      Your words are like gasoline
      You pour on the fire
      And the bridges you burned
      Led to our dreams
      It's just another thing that we lost

      When the spark turned into a flame
      And the flame grew much higher
      And my hope, faith and every last desire
      It's just another thing that we lost in the fire
      Just another thing that we lost in the fire
      Just another thing that we lost

      I Wanna Let You In,
      Let Me Introduce You To My Skeletons,
      Get Underneath My Skin,
      We Can Always Dive Into Irrelevance,
      Drive Me Round Their Houses, Find an Open Door,
      Walk Into My Secrets, There is so Much More

      It Could Be Wonderful,
      It Could Be Wonderful,
      We Could Be Vulnerable,
      It Could Be Wonderful

      I Wanna Let You In,
      Through the Looking Glass I'll Show you Everything,
      Would It Be a Sin,
      If I Let You Be My Medicine,
      Drive Me Round Their Houses, Find an Open Door,
      Walk into my Secrets, There is so Much More

      It Could Be Wonderful,
      It Could Be Wonderful,
      We Could Be Vulnerable,

      The closer I get to your paper heart
      And the tighter I hold on
      Gently covered in paper cuts
      I’m more stubborn than some
      Your like the first day of winter
      Everyday day of the year
      ‘cause your too scared to let me in
      Never close only near

      I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate
      Than you

      So I lie here ‘till morning
      As you sleep through my tears
      You say crying is like running
      From my hopes and my fears

      I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate
      Than you

      I’m getting tired of trying
      To knock down your walls
      I’m blinded by caring
      But I can see… I will fall

      I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate
      Than you

      So I lie here ‘till morning
      As you sleep through my tears
      You say crying is like running
      From my hopes and my fears

      I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate
      Than you

      I may bruise easily
      And I may break
      This is more than what anyone should take
      So I lie here ‘till morning
      As you sleep through my tears
      You say crying is like running
      From my hopes and my fears

      I’m just delicate, just a little more delicate
      Than you’ll ever be

      I don't care if Monday's blue
      Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
      Thursday I don't care about you
      It's Friday, I'm in love

      Monday you can fall apart
      Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
      Thursday doesn't even start
      It's Friday I'm in love

      Saturday you wait
      And Sunday always comes to late
      But Friday never hesitate

      I don't care if Monday's black
      Tuesday, Wednesday, heart attack
      Thursday, never looking back
      It's Friday I'm in love

      Monday, you can hold your hand
      Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed
      On Thursday watch the walls instead
      It's Friday I'm in love

      Saturday you wait
      And Sunday always comes to late
      But Friday never hesitate

      Dress up to the eyes
      It's a wonderful surprise
      To see your shoes and your spirits rise
      Throwing out your frown
      And just smiling at the sound
      And as sleek as sheik
      Spinning round and round
      Always take a bit bite
      It's such a gorgeous sight
      To see you eat in the middle of the night
      You can never get enough
      Enough of this stuff
      It's Friday, I'm in love

      I don't care if Monday's blue
      Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
      Thursday I don't care about you
      It's Friday, I'm in love

      Monday you can fall apart
      Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
      Thursday doesn't even start
      It's Friday I'm in love

      It's Friday I'm in love
      It's Friday I'm in lo-o-o-ve
      It's Friday I'm in love
      It's Friday I'm in love

      Tell me
      Would of any kind.
      Help me,
      Cause I think I'm going blind.
      All the bridges are burned
      now the pages been turned.
      There's nothing you can say,
      Or do, cause I'm not over you.

      Ohhhhh, I remember how it felt to call you mine.
      All mine, all mind, I remember how we lost the world outside,
      The times we had, the good and bad and how we felt alive
      Ohh, I remember how it felt to call you mine.

      Tell me,
      Why my heart is opened wide,
      Ohhhhh
      There's nothing left to hide,
      Do the flames still burn
      leave the stones unturned.
      Just look there deep inside,
      Of you and tell me what to do.

      Ohhhhh, I remember how it felt to call you mine.
      All mine, yes, I remember how we lost the world outside,
      The times we had, the good and bad and how we felt alive
      Ohh, I remember how it felt to call you mine.

      And it's dark,
      I can't hear your heart,
      And everything is cold,
      And I'm a little lost inside.

      Ohhhhh, I remember how it felt to call you mine.
      All mine, all mind, I remember how we lost the world outside,
      The times we had, the good and bad and how we felt alive
      Ohh, I remember how it felt to call you mine

      When I was a child
      They'd ask me where it hurt
      And wipe the tears from my eyes

      Sure embraces,
      Gentle forehead kisses
      Making sure that I was alright

      As I grew older and the nights grew shorter
      I no longer cared where it hurt

      All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies
      There to cradle me to sleep
      All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies
      There to cradle me to sleep

      Scars they heal in time
      The raw wounds on my mind
      They aren't as easily fixed

      You can't mend what isn't broken
      Kind words are rarely spoken
      In time I will learn this

      But I grow older
      And the nights grow shorter
      Drowning as I sink or swim

      All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies
      There to cradle me to sleep
      All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies
      There to cradle me to sleep

      Sticks and stones they break me to the bone
      Words they cut they will always hurt me

      Please be my saving Grace
      Please be my saving Grace

      How to answer all my prayers

      Please be my saving Grace

      All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies
      There to cradle me to sleep
      And all I hear is, Whisky Lullabies
      There to cradle me to sleep

      Sticks and stones they break me to the bone
      Words they cut, they will always hurt me
      Sticks and stones they break me to the bone
      Words they cut, they will always hurt me
