Garrett Coakley I was lucky enough to see Gitta play at the Oxford Sofar gig and was mesmerised by the delicate songs and heartfelt emotion. Favorite track: Come Find Me.

Track Name: All My Mind
I open up, open up my eyes
In the morning in the first light
I open up, open up my mind
In the haze of my first life

Set, set your mind to it, in the evening when the room sleeps
Give, give it all you've got every morning, every evening, every minute, every hour

All my mind to it
All my heart to it
All my life to it
To where I belong

I light a fire in my bedroom
Watching it burn a safe place
Setting me free with the flight of a million memories
as they're reflected in the flames

All my mind to it
All my heart to it
All my life to it
To where I belong
To where I belong
To where I belong
To where I belong
Track Name: Wished For Stars
Time could have taught me that dreams never, dreams never come true
Time could have brought me bad luck in a world full of fools
It could have shown me no good comes from, no good comes from all these coins dropped down the wishing well

I wished it all I wished for stars
With an open door and open heart
They came to me they set me free
and there is nothing that I want more

Time could have shown me no-one oh no-one seems to understand
Time could have left me stranded with no-one to hold me hand
It could have shown me no good comes from, no good comes from all these coins dropped down the wishing well

I wished it all I wished for stars
With an open door and open heart
They came to me they set me free
and there is nothing that I want more
Nothing that I want more
Track Name: Come Find Me
Come find me where the birds fly
come find me when the sun shines
find me in the blue skies
come find me when you feel blue
come find me where we once knew
find me in the full moon

we all need a little smile sometimes
a gentle face to say “hello”
we all need a little love sometimes
a twinkle in your eyes, some kindness by surprise

Come find me through the raindrops
come find me in the treetops
find me when it all stops

we all need a little smile sometimes
a gentle face to say “hello”
we all need a little love sometimes
a twinkle in your eyes, some kindness by surprise

when the rain falls heavy build a roof
cover it in leaves of green
when the sky is blackened shine a light
the stars, the moon, they shine for you

we all need a little smile sometimes
a gentle face to say “hello”
we all need a little love sometimes
a twinkle in your eyes, some kindness by surprise
Track Name: One Thousand Fireflies
Frightening, I see you moving closer
Frightening as I feel you moving closer
But you’re not allowed to see what’s inside
You’re not allowed to go where I hide
All you see is what I keep outside

Lightning, after thunder is over
Lightning, only showing just a moment
You’re not allowed into my shade
You’re not allowed in the light where I fade
I keep you blind in brightness that I’ve made

Where the ground is dry and the flowers die
The sky illuminated with a thousand fire-flies
My heart full of tales never meant to be told
I keep them deep within
I keep them underneath my skin

Inviting, as you whisper your promises
Inviting, as you fold me into your arms
Don’t let go, don’t let go
Don’t let go, don’t let go
I’ll show you where

Where the ground is dry and the flowers died
The sky illuminated with a thousand fire-flies
My heart full of tales never meant to be told
I keep them deep within
I keep them underneath my skin

I keep them underneath my skin
Where a thousand fire-flies
Are flying through my mind
Track Name: This Is Now My Home
These aren't my streets where I grew up
In a jungle of buildings here I get lost
But these are my words
And this is the truth
These are my feelings this is me and I'm missing you

I see your face inside my mind
They tell me you're fine oh daddy of mine
But this is where I stay
And this is what I choose
But these are the moments I miss you most

Yet somehow here I am
Somehow here I feel, I break, I mend, I heal
And somehow even though I miss you I know
that this is now my home

Sail me to you, over the sea
Oh how I wish I could be close to you

Yet somehow here I am
Somehow here I feel, I break, I mend, I heal
And somehow even though I miss you I know
that this is now my home
