about

CLEAN lyrics and podsafe.

A collection of songs bursting with joy, hope, and ambition, as well as wistfulness and concern. Hollie's music - always a melting-pot of genres - has solidified into a cohesive style at last, blending contemporary pop with touches of soul, jazz, and even a little Latin.

"This EP was made possible by all the people who contributed to my crowd-funding project in 2014, which allowed me to build a new home studio. To these people, I am eternally grateful and I dedicate this EP to them."
Hollie Sue

Track Name: Be Free
You got soul in your fingers
You got soul, yeah in your toes
I got a feeling, you're gonna be just fine
Cos you got what it takes to make it
You're gonna shine

Be free, and show them what you're made of
Let it all hang out
See me, and know I'm going to be here
Cheering on, no need to doubt

We all stare at the ceiling
We all wonder sometimes what's going to be in store
I got a feeling, soon enough you're go' be healing
You're go' be ready whatever waits beyond that door

Be free, and show them what you're made of
Let it all hang out
See me, and know I'm gonna be here
Cheering on, no need to doubt

With just a little bit, then just a little bit more
You can store it up and have enough to soar (high so high)
Now you know, now you know that you're not alone
You can hold your head up and march into the unknown

Be free, and show them what you're made of
Let it all hang out
See me, and know I'm gonna be here
Cheering on, no need to doubt
Track Name: Down the Line
Are you gonna help them get it right?
Are you gonna help them win the fight?
Are you gonna help them down the line?
I don't think so, oh

Is it just a phase you're going through?
Doing what you think you're supposed to?
Did you even as their point of view?
I don't think so, oh

Are you gonna give them food for thought?
Are they go' remember what you taught?
Give everything that you have got?
I don't think so, oh
Track Name: Finally
Finally, finally, finally my vision's clear
To see the road ahead
And the load I bear
To know it's worth the work

I've taken the first step now
And the worst is over
And I made my vow
You've just got to want it more

Finally, finally, finally you'll see me win
You'll now I'm serious
I can make you proud
I can say out loud

I've taken the first step now
And the worst is over
And I made my vow
You've just got to want it more

Finally, finally, finally I'm taking charge
No more camouflage
I will stand up straight
And create my fate

I've taken the first step now
And the worst is over
And I made my vow
You've just got to want it more
Track Name: Look the Other Way
My eyes are open
I have shaken off the night
All around me people sleepwalk in the light

We're all trained to look the other way
I'm not the kind of girl to fall in line
One person on their own can have a say
Together we can change the course of time

If we're feeling guilty
We heal with retail therapy
Distract ourselves
Try a new old recipe

That's how we're trained to look the other way
I'm not the kind of girl to fall in line
One person their own can have a say
Together we can change the course of time

We all know that millions are starving
They're crying out for gruel
Don't like the world we're carving
Cos humans can be cruel

We're all trained to look the other way
I'm not the kind of girl to fall in line
One person on their own can have a say
Together we can change the course of time
Track Name: Nomadic
I want to be nomadic
Want to get a really big rucksack on my back
and be nomadic, oh

I want to walk with you
Keep walking endlessly
For us the world is new
We'll travel curiously

Don't you want to be nomadic?
Want to get a really big rucksack
on your back and be nomadic? oh

These walls are closing in
I want to smash them down
Go where I've never been
I might burn and I might just drown

I want to be nomadic
Want to get a really big rucksack on my back
and be nomadic, oh

Will you walk with me?
We'll see things we should never see, and be

Nomadic, want to get a really big rucksack on my back
And be nomadic, oh
