TimelessTele Its, lets say uncommon for a song to get me emotional. For a song to bring back memories and lose myself in thought. This whole album did this to me. I've always been a fan of Veela's work. This is by far her best work. Favorite track: Home.

Andrew Berry This EP makes me feel so nostalgic and sad... I love that about it. Veela has created musical perfection once again, and perhaps better than ever before. Favorite track: Amethyst (LIVE).

about

This EP is made up of six acoustic tracks, three polished ones and three raw live ones. The live ones are complete with mic bumps, piano mistakes and mouth sounds - mm, just the way you like it.

I started recording this EP before my dad got sick in 2013 and he passed away last year. These songs are very old and there is a bit of a full circle element happening for me as I finalize the project. I wrote most of these songs in my dad's house. His house was bulldozed last week.

2233 was my dad's address and my home.

I hope you enjoy a slice of personal nostalgia - I really loved writing it!

Love, Veels

Track Name: I Remember You
Amen, baby
The melody
You kept putting on repeat
The haunting tricks it played
While I was asleep
My eyes are so revealing

Torture moi, baby
Ghostly faces
Broken picture frames
Never come back now
It won't be the same
Eyes closed, screaming so softly

Over the hill
Past the willow tree
Up the rocks
Until you can feel the sea
Frozen steps
'Til you're up to your knees
My lost lover
Can you see me?
In the waves
I remembered the ways you moved
My smile
And our secrets with the moon
It never asks
"What are you trying to prove?"
Hey hey
I won't forget you

Je disparais, baby
Standing on the edge
Tear on my cheek
Wind in my face, I see clearly
Dark peripheral visions
It scares me
You didn't think I was strong enough
I can try
Cheated out of my chances
To say goodbye
Clinging onto the concrete
And to my life
They say I'm ill
'Cause I'm not terrified

In the waves
I remembered the ways you moved
My smile
And our secrets with the moon
It never asks
"What are you trying to prove?"
Hey hey
I won't forget you

In the waves
I remembered the ways you moved
My smile
And our secrets with the moon
It never asks
"What are you trying to prove?"
Hey hey
I won't forget you
Track Name: Venus Flytrap
A best friend's narrative
Opinion so overrated
Observation through
Tired eyes
See her struggle
Wade in and out of trouble
Don't be scared, girl
It'll be
Alright

He was a constant
There through happiness and hardship
She got used to comfort, no
Risk in her life
Loyalties waver
Her morals are burning through the paper
You're safe for
A while

Two hearts, one body
Trapped in her shell
Don't choose anybody, stop worrying
It's a sin but sisters don't tell
Let your brow unfurrow
Let your body dance
Let it all go now
Well played, venus flytrap

There's nothing left of her
Two hearts waiting for an answer
She doesn't have one
And so she smiles
"You boys are chasing
A part of me you've been creating
I'm wasting my energy it's not
My battle this time."

Two hearts, one body
Trapped in her shell
Don't choose anybody, stop worrying
It's a sin but sisters don't tell
Let your brow unfurrow
Let your body dance
Let it all go now
Well played, venus flytrap
Track Name: Home
There's a stinging wind in your arms tonight
Sandpaper skin whispering love in the moonlight
Marble breath before my eyes
Through these tears that keep me paralyzed

It would take a chain and a loaded revolver
Please just take me now, I know you don't love her
Cause I know you better
Gorgeous pleading eyes assault my face
And your forbidden hands hot on my waist
Let them stay forever

There's a rosy wind in the air tonight
Glove on my suitcase at the station, is this right?
Heart possessed me to come to you
Three thousand miles in my high heeled shoes
Tug at my hair, is this the right place
Here he comes running with a grin on his face
With an ease that's blinding
Tie my jacket up and smooth the collar
Standing on the curb, for once I was taller
This is home, I'm finding

This is home I'm finding

There's no more wind in your arms tonight
The candle's out but there's still a little light
I can see your freckles, constellations on your face
Your eyelids closed and your strong arms around my waist

This is home I'm finding
Track Name: Moi (LIVE)
Moi, je n'ai pas pleuré
Je n'ai pas crié pour toi
Je voulais juste te parler
To dire l'histoire
Ça fait, trop longtemps
Que j'ai gardé cela de toi
Peut-être c'est le temps
De m'écouter pour une fois

Combien de nuits blanches
Que j'ai passé à penser à toi?
Comment je n'avais plus de chance ou de pouvoir
Dans tous, dans tous me rêves
Je m'imagine près de toi
Mais je ne peut pas toucher
Je ne dors pas pour un autre soir

Ce n'est plus facile
Et quand j'essaye de changer c'est inutile

Guide la haine hors de toi
Laisse moi courrir
nu-pieds dance le soir
Si tu ne me laisses pas savoir
Je m'excuse
Je ne cours pas après toi

Ce n'est plus facile
Et quand j'essaye de changer c'est inutile
Track Name: Amethyst (LIVE)
She was a tired high school graduate with the whole world in her eyes
She kinda felt like she had lost it and couldn't figure out her price
So inviting was his constant open door
With the old school rap songs playing
Sending hard bass through the floorboards

He was a
Bare-chested brute to some
With an unsettling smile
He was too intense for anyone
But a curious young girl who stayed a while
The way he made his music
The words and webs he wove
Counting out his rhythms to the sky
While her young blue eyes were closed

Oranges and olives
'Cause you knew they were my favourite
Living lillies in a pot instead of
Cut ones in the vases

I wish I kept all the letters I burned
All the emails I deleted all the memories I earned
You know,
We live the same life each time
Over and over again
But with each reincarnation I make the same mistakes again
You've done things, done things I don't believe in
But who hasn't done that
You've done things, done things I don't believe in
But who hasn't done that
You've done things, done things I don't believe in
It doesn't make you bad
I can't stand all this devotion from
Rugged hands, tanned skin
But you're still young

It was a day of insecurity
Clouding over a diamond mind
She vowed she wouldn't break and feel for him
Today she couldn't think of why
Her fortress breaking she let
Another kiss slip by
To exhausted and content to have
Her ego revitalized

And yet still
The days went on and on
She winced as each one passed
Another genuine good animal
Who had given her far more than she could ask
And when her guard slipped too far
Her mind turned icy cold
Her eyes were filled with pepper
And her chest began to fold

I had a dream that I was caught in a tornado
I was flying with a smile 'til it got so strong that my back broke

I wish I kept all the letters I burned
All the emails I deleted all the memories I earned
You know,
We live the same life each time
Over and over again
But with each reincarnation I make the same mistakes again
You've done things, done things I don't believe in
But who hasn't done that
You've done things, done things I don't believe in
But who hasn't done that
You've done things, done things I don't believe in
It doesn't make you bad
I can't stand all this devotion from
Rugged hands, tanned skin
But you're still young

He told me I'd been making this decision now for ages
I would say no, each lifetime now he wanted me to change it
The same day that I broke him he had given me a bracelet
He was holding the twin in his hands as he watched me drive away and

Chorus
Track Name: Émeraude (LIVE)
Encore? Tu ne me le dirai jamais
Tout ça pour me dire que c'est toi qui m'aime
En tant que personne tu me fais rester figée
Je m'excuse, mon amour mais tu me cause des problèmes

T'es rentré dans ma vie, je n'étais pas avertie
Et pourquoi viens-tu m'achaller içi?
Tes yeux dans les miens
Ça joue un air émerveillé
Mais je suis trop maigre, trop laide, trop mince
Et t'as besoin de l'opposé

Ici, je me suis confusée
je n'ai plus de point auquel me diriger
Je te veux, non j'te veux pas
J'ne peut plus te toucher
Oui, t'es charmant mais t'es trop compliqué

C'est si frustrant quand c'est si évident
Cet outil me fait sorcière et puis c'est si terrifiant
Ta confiance en moi, elle m'a encouragée
Mais mon cher, j'ai trop peur, ça ne peut plus continuer

Ici, je me suis confusée
je n'ai plus de point auquel me diriger
Je te veux, non j'te veux pas
J'ne peut plus te toucher
Oui, t'es charmant mais t'es trop compliqué

Je m'excuse mon amour mais tu me cause des problèmes
