about

Mimi Gilbert's second album, available for pre-order now and fully available on April 14, 2017, is intended to be listened to in one sitting. In this collection of songs, Mimi writes and sings into the depths of loss, disconnection, and finally acceptance and a maturity that develops through strife. Musically feeling and diverse, full of harmony and intimate vocals, mimi reveals a softer side of her music that is true to her live performances when solo.

Track Name: Suzie's Song
Woke up this morning and what did I see?
Inside this house that you once built for me

I cannot see far beyond you and me
It feels like I'm walking along blind

Tie-dye bunting hangs over my head
Reminds me of memories we made

I cannot see far beyond you and me
It feels like I'm walking along blind

Think on just good things
Breath in and out easy
Walk very slowly
In coming and going

Shallowly sleeping
To keep me from dreaming
What was I thinking
To say you would always be mine
Track Name: Waiting at the Well
Come into the dark side of my heart
What is true can still be torn apart
All these silent questions that I wear
When I try to speak the words they tear

I am torn
But the baby is still
Born

Life of my life calling in the air
Should I stay or can I meet You there
All of my leaves have already fallen
Winter's in my body, it is calling

I am torn
But the baby is still
Born

We are all just Waiting at the Well
Heaven on this earth is kissing hell
I'm not even sure if I will make it
Water's growing stale, my body's naked

I am torn
But the baby is still
Born

Will you come with me
Will you set me free
Track Name: The Curtain
You have changed, you have changed
I stood here watching
They say you've grown, grown so tall
You look right down on me now

Where did you go get holy?
That just makes people lonely
Lonely's not what we need

I am losing my grip on you
You are losing your grip on me
Tried so hard, now we're black and blue
I'm afraid now that you can't see
The curtain's between you and me

Clap your hands, smile so brave
Say you're praying for me
Do you know how that feels?
Are you not unwell too?
Will I see the doctor before you?

I search and I search your face
Smiling just hurts when it's not the real thing
Do you even know my name
It will never be the same

I am losing my grip on you
You are losing your grip on me
Tried so hard, now we're black and blue
I'm afraid now that you can't see
The curtain's between you and me
Track Name: How I Long to Leave You
How I long to leave you
Leave you in my memory
Memory it covers all our flaws

Oh how you have harmed me
How could I forget you?
How could I forget the damage done?

We paid for all the labor
And the work was endless
How the rain it failed to fall those years

Oh I cry for you
And all that we've been through
Though I said goodbye
I think of you, from time to time

My need for you is over
Like a grown man sober
I pour you out and coldly walk away

If we're only human
What will we go on doing?
and what pain do I have yet to cause?

It hit me like a cargo train
It shook me from my very frame
And now the walls we build, all look the same

Oh I cry for you
And all that we've been through
Though I said goodbye
I think of you, from time to time
Track Name: I Have Won This
I have won this
I have won this

We all fall sometimes
We all fall

It brought me to my knees
Brought me to my knees

I walked out that door
I walked out that door
Out that door
Out that damn door

I have won this
Track Name: Become With Me
When I saw you smiling
I had to look away
And how you were standing there
In the middle of the station
I thought I should be crying
For the one I'll be denying
You are so God hep me beautiful
You are so God hep me beautiful

You were in University
You were waiting for your bus there
It was number 47
When I said goodbye you kissed my cheek
When I said goodbye you kissed my cheek

I see you in the middle of the night
I almost had to leave ya
Will it all be worth it
If I start to see ya
Well honey I'll be honest
I've loved you from the minute
But I didn't think I'm worth your time
No, I didn't think I'm worth your time

Everything means nothing
When I thought I had to leave you
I thought I had to leave
Then I realised that was not me
Oh I realised that was not me

If it were I'd marry you
Well I guess that I'm still learning
Who it is I am becoming

My love will you become with me
My love will you become with me
Track Name: Busy Running
The city streets misusing me
I have to go, lie with naked roads
Human machines
Can't find a friend to have
They’re losing me, they're talking way too fast

You know that I
Can't escape the pain I feel
I'm gonna try
Gonna run so far from here

Silly words make me cry
Rock me back and forth at night
I will fall for the moon
She will shine me back to you

Busy Running all the way to your arms
Busy Running all the way to your arms

All of these lights, they're making me go blind
Holding me down, won’t let me make a sound
Conditional love, is not really love at all
Dive in the sea, she never curses me

You know that I
Can't escape the pain I feel
I'm gonna try
Gonna run so far from here

Silly words make me cry
Rock me back and forth at night
I will fall for the moon
She will shine me back to you

Busy Running all the way to your arms
Busy Running all the way to your arms

All of these lights, they're making me go blind
Holding me down, won’t let me make a sound
Conditional love, is not really love at all
Dive in the sea, she never curses me
Track Name: Front of the Line
What is life
What is life more than blue skies
And rain to clean us

What is life
What is life more love,
Deeper than mis-trust

What is life
More than miracles scattered
When the One provides

What is life
More than shocking dar horrors
In the middle of the night

What is life
More than holding each other when all is not right

So I stand for all people
The lost, found and lonely
Once we embrace difference
We may be as One

What is life
More than standing for goodness
at the Front of the Line
