This is my modern-day homage to the jazz standard.


If I could travel through time
Would I change the world?
Right the wrongs of human kind
No, no, no, no
I am too small, Too inconsequential
To make those journeys

If I could travel through time
I know where I would fly
To that warm Egyptian night
My head was resting on your chest
And we’d synchronised our breaths
Your heart was beating with my own
I thought I’d never be alone.
Oh no, no, no, I did not know
That on a winter’s afternoon
You’d take your things and go

If I could, I’d rewrite all of our dramas
I’d walk on by all of those charmers.
I wouldn’t waste our precious days
Being careless with your heart
I would cherish your devotion from the start

I wouldn’t let your courage fail us.
I wouldn’t let the years derail us.
I would curb my waspish tongue.
I’d remember how to laugh.
Every day I’d show you we were meant to last.

If I could travel through time
I would say sorry,
For all of time
All of time

I sing stories to make sense of the world. To wonder and wander. I hope my music inspires some journeys for you. My music has jazz, sophisti-pop, trip-hop and folktronica influences. Thanks for listening.
