about

Tamsin M has been singing for as long as she can remember... Her music has been with her in her many travels and incarnations as an artist. She is singer/songwriter, actor and film maker... and her passion as a storyteller lives through these mediums.

Her debut album "Verdict to Roam" captures a deep intensity and often hard hitting intimacy that human relationships evoke and inspire in us. It is a diary of love and certainly tells a story of hope, loss and liberation we all can relate to...

Track Name: Sad Am I
Oh how sad am I
Sitting here and waiting for another guy
Wanting only you to come and kill this lie
Fractured little thoughts but I have to try

Sweet lover won’t you please grow up
I need you be the one who will help me fill this cup
Life is so uncertain and I feel so scared
Shadows and the monsters bringing things I feared.

Oh how cruel am I
Putting on my make up for another guy
Hope he doesn’t see when I start to cry
As I start to cry

Sweet lover won’t you please grow up
I need you to be the one who will help fill this cup
Life is so uncertain and I feel so scared
Shadows and the monsters bringing all the things I feared

And here they are again
Climbing up my stairs knocking to get in
They’re calling to remind me that I am holding on
They’re shouting to wake me from this sad sad song

Oh how wrong am I
Looking in the eyes of this other guy
Seeing a house and a white picket fence
Living out a life of wine and pretense
Track Name: Puppet Dream
Sunbeam rise over me
Hair entwined lovers to be
Sweet dreams like candy floss
Floating on tides of green and crimson too
Pleasure waits for no man but you

Time goes by and stars
Shine inside your mind
Nothing can take you away from me
Heavenly strings no need to unbind

We're happy puppets we are
Sleeping side by side

So happy puppets we are
Sleeping side by side
Track Name: Bridge Too Far
Running out of time
to tell you now my love
The mind is twisted
around the simple words that I just can't say

I never saw you coming
but here you are
paradise... a sweet reminder

Is it a bridge too far
Is it a bridge too far
Is it a bridge too far
To reach for me now

Never a single moment
Fear taking over love
Reaching out forever
simple pleasures left here unknown
Track Name: Exorcism
Killing my body as I kill our love
Getting the hell out of the safe places
Running scared where is my wine
Don’t look too close might find the Divine

You always speak of water under the bridge
The truth is a mystery to you
If you listen real close you’ll hear the wail
The cracks and tears as I inhale
Don’t mistaken the love is still there
Hiding inside the room in there

All green and blue with ugly faces
Hands and feet that reach and grind
Where will the rage go you ask me
Are you safe well I don’t know
The body is weakened the mind is weaker
Can’t even pretend to be the seeker

All I know is the chasm inside
The truth is broken but the woman survives
Throw your rocks the forgotten has risen
Leave me here in my exorcism
Track Name: Little Lilly
Little lily woke up today
with a heart lifting up to play
Kissing catches in the sun
Sweet intentions on the run
Little Lilly forgot the world today
As the dark clouds begin to build
All around her they gather in
With hearts not of pride but built of tin

Little Lilly can’t you see
They are here to ravage and devour
And as she smiles, cornered in the dark
She says, I know what you want
Yes I, I know what you want
Know what you want

But still she reels as the confusion sets in
Guilt is the victor for the false sin
Nothing committed, nothing done
Just a sweet game gone so horribly wrong
Little Lilly wringing hands, running free
From the salted hearts left out in the sun
An innocence taken so damn young
From a little girl left undone

Little Lilly can’t you see
They are here to ravage and devour
And as she smiles, corner in the dark
She says, I know what you want
Yes I , I know what you want
Know what you want
Know what you want
Know what you want.
Track Name: Ghosts in Beijing
There we lie
Only half of what we were
Half of what we can be
A semblance of selves
Two halves of a whole
We can’t ever be
A ghost, a ghost story

There we be
Colours all drained and pale
With tears all dried up in the cold
Hearts in the open
Broken left wide
To a ghost, a ghost story

Wondering apart, hand in hand
Two ghosts in Beijing
Thoughts travelling at a million miles
Two ghosts in Beijing
Imprisoned in a cell
Of reflections in the dark
From a past we keep safely inside
Like ribbons of blood
We grope and we hold
To a ghost, a ghost story

We breath and we climb
To a peak we can’t seem to find
It’s the truth held only in the mind
And a feeling takes hold
And it liberates the soul
To a ghost, a ghost story

Wondering apart, hand in hand
Two ghosts in Beijing
Thoughts travelling at a million miles
Two ghosts in Beijing
A fortress that was built, built to divide
Two ghosts in Beijing
Two ghosts in Beijing
I loved you my ghost in Beijing.
Track Name: Love Justified
I have fallen hopelessly in love with you my dear
My example
Will you fall off your pedestal so I
May see your smile and hold you in arms

When will your solitude be enough and your mountain fall
It's the illusion that keeps you from the vision of me
And the warmth that I can give

Precious moments to share as equals
Love Justified away from the pain
And tears left here unfallen
With moments shared in vain

Love justified x 4

It's the fear in you that keeps the beauty inside
and the lie you were sold
and what is left is another memory of love to keep
A sad story of fools

Precious moments to share as equals
Love Justified away from the pain
And tears left here unfallen
With moments shared in vain

You stand so far away from me now
In my longing I am blind
And my fingers are frozen in the face of your cold
Baby let me take your heart inside

Love justified
Love justified
Love justified
Love justified
Track Name: Hang On
Hang On
You'll see, I'll hold you so fondly
Life leads us so far astray
In illusion poison has its way

Don't let their hands drive you down
Scent of roses leads to the crown

Looking inside there's so much to see
Inherent wisdom inside you and me
Deeper than anyone has ever looked
Save for a few that world forsook
In pieces we all don't stand
Like the glove that doesn't fit the hand

Letting go is part of the key
In dreams there's wisdom for all to see

You ask so many questions
The answers like the dark oceans
Mental man has lost the key
Shrouded in life's mystery

Don't let their hands drive you down
Scent of roses leads to the crown

Leads...
Leads...
to the crown

Crown

Just hold on...
Track Name: Song of Faces
A song of faces and sounds
Ringing in my eyes
But it's always you that wants to stay

And so I let you in
To fill up my mind
With smiles and cheekbones

I love you you see
And I haven't loved before
All the others were liars
When they held me on the floor
It was insanity when I forgot to
Wait for you...

And so I look onto
An empty page
Hoping my words can keep you
From going astray
And leaving me here
Hopeless with life to squander

I love you you see
And I haven't loved before
All the others were liars
When they held me on the floor
It was insanity when I forgot to
Wait for you...
Track Name: I Am Broken
Seems like life is falling apart
Little shards to pierce the heart
Have a lover that doesn't feel like my own
Only pain sounding its old drone
How does the forked tongue summon to me
Into the dark I always seem to flee
there's no light left to lead the way
All the torch bearers have gone astray

Oh calm come to soothe me
Oh calm come to hold me
Oh calm come to arrest me
Cause I'm broken

There's a little girl's voice playing inside my head
The sound of her like agony
For she waits for me on foreign shores
So far now I can no longer see
And the ground is now a hollow
There are no ropes to stop the fall
Love has turned now to ashes
I am withered here when I should be tall

Oh calm come to soothe me
Oh calm come to hold me
Oh calm come to arrest me
Cause I'm broken
Track Name: Kiss Me Through the Wire
Soft eyes in memory with words unspoken
Soft hands left reaching but nothing is broken
Nothing to leave nothing gain
The rules don't apply when nothings the same
The curl of the smile and satin in touch
Eyes like home you never asked too much

A week, a month, a forever in your pleasure
Skeletons and pink letters, a chest of treasure
I run my hand across your head
Sometimes alone we can't help the dread

Don't say goodbye with fear in your mind
True love is never is never unkind
Feel desire let live your fire
Just kiss me... just kiss me through the wire
Kiss me... just kiss me through the wire
Kiss me... kiss me through the wire

And being alone and left behind
No fighting the wave when we made up our mind
With every word we sink ever deeper
Waters so warm they soothe the sleeper
The terror has gone the soul is awake
Giving it all with everything at stake
Giving it all with everything at stake

Don't say goodbye with fear in your mind
True love is never is never unkind
Feel desire let live your fire
Just kiss me... just kiss me through the wire
Kiss me... just kiss me through the wire
Kiss me... kiss me through the wire
Kiss me... kiss me through the wire
