about

Elenne May Amsterdam, Netherlands

"This is a band for people who like to listen to music, truly listen. The music is beautifully layered, breathes space as well as atmosphere, with enough left to discover. The slightly mysterious voice of singer Elenne is soft, broken and hinting at unknown things, perhaps even the mystery beyond what we can hear." - WoNoBloG ... more

Track Name: My White Gown gone Grey
I saw you in your long, dark, black dress,
I was wondering,
If you were going out to dance tonight.
You looked beautiful,
I saw you in my sleep,
But you looked,
Neither hot nor cold,
Neither glad nor sad.

I saw through the cracks,
I saw splinters in your smile of guilt,
In your white robe of innocence.

You had a rainbow, around you,
Full of diamonds, like an emerald.
You walked on a sea of glass,
Clear and naked,
But your eyes were fierce as fire,
And crows black.

I saw through the cracks,
I saw splinters in your smile of guilt,
In your white robe of innocence.

I looked again,
I saw cracks and splinters,
In my smile of guilt,
In my white robe of innocence,
As it wore heavy on my nakedness,

As it turned a, colorless grey,
As I turned a, colorless grey,
Colorless grey,
So I looked away.
Track Name: Bad Thoughts
Little mind games
Fiery conclusions.
Selfish assumptions,
Flaming thoughts.

We don’t want no sad lies,
We don’t want no trouble.
We don’t want no sad fights.
We don’t want no hassle.

Bad thoughts,
My bad tong,
Bad accusations.

I’ll make them go away,
I’ll make them go.
Please don’t be mad,
Don’t scream.

We don’t want no sad lies,
We don’t want no trouble.
We don’t want no sad fights.
We don’t want no hassle.

Evil thoughts,
Evil thoughts,
Evil thoughts,
Evil thoughts.
Track Name: Like a Lily among Thorns
Like a Lily among Thorns
Elenne May 2011


Pleasing is your smell,
Your fragrance like perfume,
Poured out, as if your last.
Poured out, as if your last.

Wonderful are your words,
Your voice like a song,
Sounding, the cymbal of freedom, of defeat
Sounding, the cymbal of freedom, of defeat.

Like a lily among thorns.
Let them catch the wolves,
Wolves that ruin.
It’s too cold to kiss here.
Hold me,
Nurse me like a baby.

Delight ful in fulfillment,
Your actions like a kings’,
Charming, in all your movements.
Charme ing, in your move ments

Nurse me,
Nurse me,
Nurse me,
Nurse me,
We’ll catch those wolves,
We’ll catch those wolves

Hold me,
Nurse me like a baby.
Track Name: How they Love Transperancy
Poisonous lips,
A bleeding, swearing mouth.
Fiery eyes,
And shaking blue veined hands.

Bones, covered with skin,
How they love transparency.
Bones, covered with skin,
How they love transparency.

I know,
Don’t tell me,
You can’t reach,
Nothing you say will mean a thing.

Bones, covered with skin,
How they love transparency.
Bones, covered with skin,
How they love transparency.

Let me wash those feet,
Let me get down on my knees.
Oh I do love my enemy,
As I love myself.
Track Name: The Night, a Revealing Atmosphere
The night falls over me,
The night falls over me.
Like a blanket, but cold.
Like a blanket, but cold.

He tucks me in,
He tucks me in,
Like a father, that’s not mine.
Like a father, that’s not mine.

He kisses both cheeks,
He kisses,
He kisses, both cheeks.
He kisses me.
Like a moan, a cry, a scream.

He reads me a story,
He reads me a story,
Like my own,
My life on his face.
My life on his face.

My life on his face,
My life on his face.
