Sophie Barker - Earthbound

I was listening to this album last night. It's so relaxing and sweet. You may not know this singer by name but she usually sings along with Zero 7 (she's the brunette lol). Zero 7 was one of the best gigs I ever went to. It was a small theatre, really cosy atmosphere and everyone just seemed so happy to be there and have the chance to listen to that music. Moses was brilliant and got me really emotional (in the happy sense of the word). But back to Sophie: it's a really nice album, her voice is very special and the lyrics surprised me.
She sings this next bit with all the softness in the world

"Don't treat me like a fool
I'm more intelligent than you
You may have partially succeeded
In breaking me in two
But at least I have a heart and mind(?)
And a soul"

"Secret" - Sophie Barker (probably my favourite song of the album)

subtlety in softness. Always very effective

Yes, I wasn't paying attention to the lyrics but when I did I thought: "I can't believe this is waht she's saying" :)
