about

Sadie’s magical, eloquently confessional songs are all about coming to terms with her extraordinary and often traumatic past. Many of them delve deep into her own sub-conscious and like the best songs of Joni Mitchell, they’re far more than pages torn from a private diary.

Sadie’s debut album THE BLACKSMITH'S GIRL was produced by Steve Lee, mixed and co-produced by David Bianco (Bob Dylan/Del Amitri/Tom Petty) and mastered in London by Kevin Metcalfe (Queen/David Bowie/Kinks/Oasis).

Track Name: Entirely
I will follow you down
Follow you down into your darkness
I will help you to shine
Help you to shine into your darkness
So I can see you more clearly
So I can see you entirely

I will see through your eyes
See through your eyes into your broken heart
And I wont let you hide
Let you disguise even a single part
So I can love you more deeply
So I can love you entirely

And all that you are
And all you will be
And I will love you
Entirely

I will follow you down
Follow you down into your darkness
I will help you to shine
Help you to shine into your darkness
So I can see you more clearly
So I can love you entirely
Track Name: Making Sense
I’m trying to
I’m trying to
Trying to understand you
What you say
To my face
It’s different from what you say
When I’m not at your place

Am I making sense
Am I making sense
Am I making sense

The skin and bone
You call your own
All the love you've lost and never shown
The clever lies
To hide the scars
Well I know your history I know
Who you are

Am I making sense
Am I making sense
Am I making sense

You’re so hard honey
You’re so hard honey
You’re so hard to talk to
You’re so hard to talk to
You’re so hard to talk to
Track Name: Another Way To Be
I’ve got no more courage left inside me
To deal with everything that’s coming out
I’ve got no more places left to hide me
And now I have to feel what its about

And oh my little darling
I wish that I could hold you close to me
And oh my little darling
I need to find another way to be

I can see my mirrored walls are falling
And I know that you see deep inside of me
You see where all my shadows go for hiding
And something in you longs to set them free
Track Name: Up On The Heath (featuring Ed Harcourt)
Won't you stand still with me
We'll get out of this city
We'll live our lives they're meant to be
Breathe in the clean air

Oh, but you know my old car
It just wont get us very far
Just out of Hackney up to Gospel Oak is all im hoping for

So lets go up onto the Heath
Watch the city crawl beneath our feet
Try to beat these blues away

Oh, well won't you come away
Cos the world looks good today
Lie on our backs and watch the world rush by
We're high in a blue sky

And I'll tell you what i know
Of the city down below
Of all the people here in London Town
Well im so glad i found you

Oh, let's go up onto the Heath
Watch the city crawl beneath our feet
And try to beat these blues away
And pretend the world is perfect for today

When the lights begin to fade
We will slowly make our way
Through the ancient trees of Hampstead Heath
While the moon does creep
And the city sleeps

We'll be up upon the Heath
Watching the city crawl beneath our feet
And we will beat these blues away, yeah
And we'll know the world is perfect
And everything was worth it
Yes, we'll know the world is perfect for today.
Track Name: Ever Fallen In Love (Buzzcocks cover)
ou scorn my natural emotion, you make me feel like dirt and it hurts
But if I start a commotion I’ll only end up losing you and that’s worse

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have fallen in love with

Can’t see much for the future unless we find out who’s to blame, what a shame
And we won’t be together much longer unless we realise we're the same

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have fallen in love with
Track Name: I'm Glad You're Back
I’m glad you’re back
I’m glad you’re here
No you don’t have to go
Just hold my hand
And take me down
Think I can go there now
oh

When you first came here
So full of fear
I couldn’t let you in
Thought that I
Might disappear
If I saw what you’d seen
oh

And all in a dream
I couldn’t see you
And all in a dream
I couldn’t hear you scream

But I’m glad you’re back
I’m glad you’re here
No you don’t have to go
Just take me down
Show me around
I’d really like to know
What hurt you so

And I’m so sorry
That I left you there
But I’m so glad you’re back
Track Name: The Blacksmith's Girl
The Blacksmith’s girl went out with a rifle
And a black dog running behind her
Cobwebs snatched all at her feet
And thorn branches caught at her eyes
Only to make her blind

And the sky
Oh the sky
The sky yeah the sky
Turned into an unlucky opal
Turned into an unlucky opal
But she didn’t mind

I can break any branches
And I can dodge any rocks
And I can shoot an old crow any day
Said she to her dog and her rifle
Said she to her dog and her rifle

The Blacksmith’s girl went over the paddock
With her old black hat on her head
And the old crow cried
You’ll soon be dead and the rain came down like mattocks
Oh the rain came down like mattocks
But she only said

I can climb any mountain
And I can swim any sea
And I can shoot an old crow any day
And she went on over the paddock
Oh went on over the paddock

And when she came to the end of the day
The night began a falling
Up it came like the barrel of a gun
Ready for the girl to swallow
Oh ready for the girl to swallow

But in front of all the night
The rainbow stood upon the mountain
And the rainbow shone as brightly as the sun
Just as her heart foretold her
Oh just as her heart foretold her

And she ran like a hare
And she climbed like a fox
And she caught it in the palm of her hand

Like a bar of ice
Like a ring of gold
Like the column of a fountain pure
And she came back down from the mountain
Oh came back down from the mountain

The Blacksmith’s girl
Hung the rainbow on her shoulder
Instead of her broken gun
And all the world said no one is bolder
To do what she has done
Oh do what she has done
Oh see what the Blacksmith’s girl has done!
Track Name: Standing In The Room
Standing in the room
Trying to breathe
Hoping it'll pass
Trying not to scream

It’s taken me away
To another place
Can’t remember names
I can’t see your face

la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la

I was angry thing
When I pushed it in
Crawled into my heart
Covered up my skin

Too afraid to laugh
Too afraid to cry
Too afraid to live
Too afraid too die

la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la....
Track Name: The Beautiful People
I saw you with her yesterday
She’s beautiful all smiles and waves
You were both looking so fine
Shoulda stopped and said hello but I
Couldn’t let this feeling grow
Envy likes to watch from the side
And I can’t remember feeling
This cut up about

Anything

What are you doing without me
In a life you made up
Now you’re one of the beautiful people
I can’t touch
I can’t touch

So I just watched you walking by
And I thought about the reasons why
You let me fall behind
And I try to make myself believe
That you never meant that much to me but
Every single word is a lie
And I cant remember wanting
Anybody quite like

I want you

What are you doing without me
In a life you made up
Now you’re one of the beautiful people
I can’t touch
I can’t touch
Track Name: So I Begin
Guess what turns out
I’m not that strong
Been out too far
Been down too long

And I feel like I’m falling down
And I feel like I have no ground

I pace the floor
The long night through
I’m waiting for the sky
To turn blue

And I used to see the good in everything
And I used to see the love in everyone
And I know I have to get back to that place
And I know it’s just myself I have to face

So I begin by breathing out
So I begin by breathing in
Track Name: Ghosts
Don’t know how this all got broken
Trying to figure out where I’m going
Without you
Don’t wanna fight no more
We'll just wake up the baby
Slam the door my anger is fading
Or maybe it’s because

I filed my love
Way down at the bottom of
A pile of stuff
I don’t wanna open there’s just
Too many ghosts to let out

I’ve got a picture of you
Behind my eyes
Holding our girl in your arms like a prize
In a little red dress
The apple of your eyes

Oh
But I filed my love
Way down at the bottom of
A pile of stuff
I don’t wanna open there’s just
Too many ghosts
Too many ghosts

oh when you comin’ home?
when you comin’ home
when you comin’ home
when you comin’ home

Cos’ I filed my love
Way down at the bottom of
A pile of stuff
I don’t wanna open there’s just
Too many ghosts
Too many ghosts
Track Name: River (Joni Mitchell cover)
It’s comin’ on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're puttin’ up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don’t snow here
It stays pretty green
I’m gonna make a lot of money
And I’m gonna quit this crazy scene

I wish i had a river
I could skate away on

Oh and I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh and I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

He tried hard to help me you know
He put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
He made me weak in the knees

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I’m so hard to handle
You know I’m selfish and I’m sad
Now I’ve gone and lost the best baby
I ever had

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
