about

Merry Ellen Kirk Nashville, Tennessee

A young explorer at heart, Merry Ellen Kirk challenges the stigma of the formulaic love song, daring her audience to consider the world in a new light. A tale of heartbreak, fragility, tension, resolution, deep longing & what-could've-beens, Feather & a Leaf continues the dreamy artistic tone that we loved so much in Firefly Garden, to a poignant lyrical exploration of the human capacity to love. ... more

Track Name: Lovers & Liars
What if I told you I didn't love you
What would you do with me
What if I held you under my spell
We were just make believe

Little puppet on a string
I had you wrapped around my finger
You believed we could be
Happy ever after

You never saw it coming
Even in your dreams

Lovers and liars
We're catching on fire
Lovers and liars
Ooooh

What if I told you my little secret
I've been in lock & key
Maybe I'll let you believe what you want to
Easier don't you think

Little puppet on a string
I had you wrapped around my finger
You believed we could be
Happy ever after

You never saw it coming
Even in your dreams

Lovers and liars
We're catching on fire
Lovers and liars
Ooooh

Cause I'm a lover and a liar
Now I'm lying by myself
I strangled my desire
Now I'm burning in this hell

I never saw it coming
In my wildest dreams

Lovers and liars
We're catching on fire
Lovers and liars
Ooooh
