about

'Two Sides of Me' is the second single from forthcoming debut solo EP 'Science', which will be released on 18 March.

It is a song about the inner struggles and strains that a relationship can provoke - it is about being afraid to show the real you, in case you ultimately drive away the person you love.

lyrics

Verse 1
You think I’m sweet, not what the others see
Two sides of me – which one should I keep hidden?
For fear keep hidden
God only knows, which way it goes
When one tries to make the other cry – good riddance
To tears, good riddance

Chorus
Would you forgive me if I f**k it up?
It always seems to happen when I love someone this much.
Arm’s length, self-protection, meaningless sex and validation.
It’s all been done.

Bridge
Would you smile if I took your hand
And told you that we were more than friends?
More than friends…

Verse 2
Nothing I say can take the pain away
And in your mind, you’ve left the past behind
But know my heart will stay there with you
At least you’ll see how much you mean to me
And how I tried to keep the love we had alive
I’m here and always be

Chorus
Would you forgive me if I f**k it up?
It always seems to happen when I love someone this much.
Arm’s length, self-protection, meaningless sex and validation.
It’s all been done.

Bridge
Would you smile if I took your hand
And told you that we were more than friends?

Second bridge
I’m not the same as when you met me
People change and now you get me
For who I am
Who I am

about

Rachel Myall London, UK

“beautifully emotional"
Q Magazine.

London-based singer/songwriter - who unusually doesn't write music or play any instruments - combining wistful vocals with strings, piano, percussion and the occasional trumpet to tell lyrical tales of love and loss.

I call it melancholy folk blues, influenced by a diverse range of artists from Bob Dylan and Tim Buckley to Laura Marling and Dolly Parton.
