Corrinne May

"Every hope, every prayer lies in the heart of a seed that flowers
Intertwined all across the land
We're all seeds in the maker's hand"
- Beautiful Seed, Corrinne May

A Singaporean has tickled my favorite music list. Corrinne May is a new artist from Singapore, and her album has reached Platinum. I first heard her on the radio last Saturday. Her voice is mellow and relaxing. She weaves lyrics like an inspirational book. I fell in love with her music the first time I heard her.

She has the gift of words, and one of the few who can write lyrics that aren't cliche. She should be given more exposure, because she has a lot of potential.

I like "Safe in a Crazy World" better than "Beautiful Seed", because she added catchy drum beats to her songs. The melodic voice is still there, but more instruments to keep your head bopping. I think she became experimental with "Safe in a Crazy World." The arrangement was modern, adding machine-like sounds to some of her songs. But don't get me wrong, I still like "Beautiful Seed."

Here is one of my favorite songs from her SINCW. The video doesn't have pictures, it's just audio, so just sing along. :D



Everything In its time

Sometimes i wonder what lies ahead
How long til my hunger is fed
They say it's hard to make it in this part of town
so many people on this merry-go-round

Some folks try astrology
Some turn to crystal balls
To find an answer
To get through it all
I just fall on my knees and i try to pray
in the silence i can hear Him say


The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to patience and watch for the sign
Everything in its time

I often feel like that i'm two steps behind
Somebody must have moved that finish line
There are a thousand reasons
why i should give up
But i'm stubborn in the things i believe

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to the patience and watch for the sign

'cause maybe there's another plan
One i still cant see
A little surprise, like your love in your life
Funny how time changes how we see

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to the patience and watch for the sign
Everything in its time
Everything in its time
