GABRIELLA CILMI | Cigarettes and Lies

LYRICS:

Soon, soon you'll sing it out loud
You gotta stop before you go
And let me down, yeah
Soon, soon you'll sing it out loud
You gotta stop before you go
And let it down, yeah

And too many times have you
Shut me out

Don't you want to come and play
I've seen you too many times a day
When we go we fight to be sure
See I can't leave you alone

Maybe, baby, maybe, maybe
We could go into the sun
Every little baby makes me feel I've won, ahh
I said
Maybe, baby, maybe, maybe
We could go into the sun
Every little baby makes me feel I've won, oh

Soon, soon you'll sing it out loud
You gotta stop before you go
And let it down, yeah
Soon, soon you'll sing it out loud
You gotta stop before you go
And let it down, yeah

And too many times have you
Shut me out

Maybe, baby, maybe, maybe
We could go into the sun
Every little baby makes me feel I've won, ahh
I said
Maybe, baby, maybe, maybe
We could go into the sun
Every little baby makes me feel I've won, oh

REVIEWS:
x The production by Xenomania is bright and bolshy - leaving plenty of space to let the impressive voice do its stuff. Cigarettes And Lies in particular is pitched just right with its scratchy blues-driven hooks. Chris Jones

x My, this is actually quite a varied album. It moves from Winehouse style to blues to pop. (...) 'Cigarettes And Lies' appears to want to do a similar thing before getting all funky on us, funky in a real way, not processed pro-tooled way. Probably was pro-tooled, yet this album manages to sound decent production and mixing wise, quite rare for a modern LP. Adrian Denning
