I wanna know when you’re mine son of a gun are you shooting in time why do you wear so much red it made a mess when we kissed on my bed another round for the girl who knows my weakness who knows how to twirl enough to get her undressed I ride your senses and you ride my chest around my neck there’s a rope sometimes you pull it and I start to choke is it a test for the girl who knows what it takes to be in your world so if you want, come collect

come shake my hand as you wish me the best under your shoulder my innocent chest around us letters I can’t seem to hide everyone’s looking but you still are blind I have a home in the shape of a nest but nothing works and I need to protest about the things that I used to be told a heavy burden I don’t wanna hold you gave me Monday, I wanted the week you gave me clothes but they don’t seem to fit a little closer, a little too far all of my dreams got washed out in a bar I have a home in the shape of a nest but nothing works and I gave it my best my neighbor asks me when I’m gonna sell I said this house must be under a spell
3.
I fell behind I know my self-esteem was low but you loved to watch me dive still messing my sight keep blocking my view still messing my sight keep blocking my view I wonder if you know where I spend time and grow I’d like to break the ice and give you advice keep pushing you too and give you advice keep pushing you too

we had one toy to play I would sleep with my shoes running slow, running late no-one gave us the blues now the friends you once had can remember how bad you would treat other kids around you no-one told you the truth for your innocent youth and the stories are left behind you is it too late to ask how it went by so fast when I wanted to learn how to kiss, how to turn now the friends you once had can remember how bad you would treat other kids around you no-one told you the truth for your innocent youth and the stories are left behind you
5.
if you ever need peace I’ll be near waving a white flag over the fights and the beer we will rise searching the streets to find you woman in my dreams hoping to make it all new in time the moment of truth is to stay and I won’t be here maybe I’m looking away to far lights tell me if we met again would you remember my voice that sang in your head like a child I’ll never, I’ll never be
6.
in the beginning showing me what was only hidden from others hidden now I know it all I suppose I know some more than I used to in the beginning sugar and tea time now I know my bed time I sleep like a baby on a shore let me tell you more I support a different blend than I used to in the beginning now you walk like I taught you over me lover you are one to discover I know your type but I could be wrong I suggest we take a test like we used to in the beginning butter and milk time now I know it’s all mine I wake up forgiven by a god can I call you Fred we can share each other’s bread like we used to in the beginning now you walk like I taught you over me lover you are one to discover I know your type but I could be wrong I suggest we take a test like we used to in the beginning you walk like I taught you walk like I taught you like I taught you you walk like I taught you over me lover you are one to discover I know your type but I could be wrong I suggest we take a test like we used to in the beginning

you found a new home and a car with a hook if you carried me there, I would look nothing works for you nothing works for you change your mind as you chew bubblegum throw your hair to the back for the fun does it work for you does it work for you I get the message I think I understand do I run or do I stick to the plan when it works for me when it works for me we chase in circles we walk in parallel through the traps and the wills of a spell and it works for me like it works for you

there’s a boy that I know he wears tights and it's the way to go if he wants to conquer the world looking like a girl he once used to know when those tights were the way to go there’s a girl that I know she wears ties and it's the way to go if she wants to conquer the world looking like a boy she once used to know when those ties were the way to go they can laugh all they want super freaks on a local star but that’s how you conquer the world meet the boy and girl who don’t really care what the world thinks about them yeah
9.
03:53
tonight I’m running slow my head is gonna spin for a minute forgetting everything else so we could be close for a while you wrap around my chest wondering what’s there to discover we have to fight to be free but you would rather stay in your room believe me when I say I’ve had my share in the business and if I make it today I’m gonna run straight to you and so the story ends with a big twist for the closing when someone told me today what baby does best in her room
10.
I’m a lyrical soldier I won’t be left behind never mind if you hear me in the rooms of your mind oh how I tried for you when you carry my body can you tell if it’s warm do my enemies know you where can I learn from oh how I tried for you now I'm a song that you listen for free can I wake up beside you in harmony every morning every morning are we lost in the meantime did we fail to reboot now it’s harder to be me but we’ll go by the book oh how I tried for you story telling is easy when you come up with lies it’s a lie that you please me but I’m lost in your thighs oh how I tried for you oh how I tried for you
11.
02:35
I’m sitting on the piano stool and feeling like the bigger fool a little trip that lasted long it seemed to me I’d never gone the time would pass I had you by not close enough to show you why I said goodbye to little things my yellow shirt, some golden rings the green of eyes, the red of skin all of a sudden look so thin adding the numbers now won’t do trying to find some other you so now you met the little me I bet it wasn’t hard to see At lost and found our memories will always be in our blue seas making of making of, making of making of me

about

Σtella returns with her sophomore album “Works For You”. Following on from her acclaimed self-titled 2015 debut, this record is set for release in February 2017. 


Written and arranged by Σtella (with the exception of two tracks -“Nest” and “Walk Like I Taught You” - co-written with Velissarios Prassas), the album was recorded in Athens in 2016 and produced by artist and producer Nteibint and Σtella.

“Works For You” tells stories - its eleven pop songs talk about love and friendship, and celebrate introspection. With this album, Σtella has taken her music two steps forward, further refining her sound and continuing with her ambitious blends of pop and singer-songwriter influences to create her tightest and most mature work yet.

"Works For You" will be released on LP (with mp3 download code), CD and digital album via Inner Ear.

about

Σtella Athens, Greece

Σtella was born beside the sea and raised by a Canadian nanny who waterskied topless.

Her songs are non-standard pop deviations whose shimmering feel-good surfaces are anchored by a powerful undertow of melancholy.

Her two albums with Inner Ear Records – Σtella [2015] + Works For You [2017] – established her as one of the label’s best-selling artists and one of Greece’s most popular indie stars.
