about

Marina's first studio album, supported by of the East of England Arts Council. Recorded at High Barn in Essex.
FATEA Review:
"Somewhere Down The Line" album recorded at High barn in Essex. It's an album which drifts between Americana and folk in a contemporary style. There is a sense of mischief in both Marina's vocal tone and her delivery.

amazon Reviews:
"When you listen to Marina's unforgettable voice, you'll wonder why she isn't a huge star. Well, it takes a while to get noticed - but this debut album is a fine showcase of Marina's talent, with a diverse selection of beautiful original songs written by Mick Kennedy, Julie Fox Allen and Marina herself. Her music crosses into several genres - rock, pop, country, folk - and appeals to all sorts of musical tastes. On her myspace site, in the "sounds like ..." box, she's put "depends on who is listening!" i hear echoes of stevie nicks, but really marina is uniquely herself. So buy the CD - but don't keep the secret!"

"The much anticipated debut from Marina Florance. Her voice is hauntingly evocative. The songs grab you from the first note on the album. This is probably one of the finest releases this year by one of the best new artists in the country."

"Met up with a friend where Marina and her band were playing. I was not expecting what I heard. I was blown away by her fabulous voice. The lyrics are compelling listening and the songs are a good variety of styles. 'Nothing prepared me for you' should be on the A play list of every radio station in the world! In short I came home got on here and bought the album. I am now off to chill out with my iPod and Marina."

"First heard this enchanting voice on the CD player in a pub in Norfolk. Asked who the singer was and discovered the beautifully mellow voice of Marina Florance. Definitely one of my favourites!"

"The album successfully blends the sounds "Nothing Could Have Prepared Me For You","500 Questions"and funky rhythm of "Friday Night" into a satisfying collection of songs.Marina is a remarkably promising artist,taken by itself each song shimmers just like its own special gem, and lingers long in the memory,her voice sparkles like a fine diamond ,"Parallel Lines" amazing."

Track Name: Can You Tell
Can you tell what I feel inside
Can you see what I’m trying to hide
Is it visible on the outside
Can you tell what I feel inside

Touch me once and you know it’s true
Can’t believe you don’t feel it to
My body trembles at the thought of you
There ain’t anything we could not do

If you could see what’s out of sight
Could it be that you just might
Come out of the shadows into the light
Doesn’t matter if it’s wrong or right

Instrumental

If you knew what’s on my mind
Well who knows you might like what you find
Then you take me slowly creep up from behind
I’d be willing to pay in kind

Repeat 1
Track Name: The Guilty One
The Guilty One

I have tasted the bittersweet flavour
Of a love that’s turned sour
Felt the weight of a heart so heavy
Carried through those long dark hours
Carried through those long dark hours

I have kept a box full of memories
Of another place and time
Rewritten the rule when the words of love don’t rhyme
When the words of love don’t rhyme

Chorus
But you stop me in my tracks each and every time
With words from a silver tongue
Playing tricks with my mind
And just when I think that I’ve moved on
I realise
That you were there, That you where there
All along

And you’ve always got a better story
Than the time before
And you’re excuses have a way of making me
The guilty one, the guilty one

Chorus

I have got a suitcase and a key
Spirited away
For that time when I know
That it’s not wise for me to stay
That it’s not wise for me to stay

Chorus
Track Name: Millenihum
Instrumental
Track Name: Friday Night
Friday night
6 o'clock at night and your still not home
And it’s always the same
Spend Fridays on my own
So I pull on my cap take a walk in the park
The light is fading but it’s still not dark

When I saw you looking at me
Yes I saw you looking at me
Surprised at what you see

Friday night don’t wanna go home
And it always the same
Need some time on my own
So I sit on the bench dedicated with love
And I watch the boats go by
And the birds in the sky

When I saw you looking at me
Yes I saw you looking at me
Surprised at what you see

Friday night she takes her place on the bench
That is dedicated with love
And they nod hello but they don’t say a word
Home is where they should be
But they don’t go

Cause it takes a little grow
Yes it takes a little time to share what you know
And it takes a little time to bear your soul
Track Name: In Orange
In Orange (played open)
G D Am
The last light has turned darkest black
G D Am
All the anonymous faces have found their way back
C D G Em
Taking only the time we had to spare
C D C D
Not wanting to share, not wanting to share

G D Am
We could talk for hour upon hour
G D Am
Knowing the end will be the same
C D G Em
Drawing us so near another secret to be shared tonight
C D C D
Only us to hear, only us to hear

Chorus

Em Bm C
Take my words as truth
D G
And another lie will not be spoken
C D Em
As a token of my love
Bm C
Take my hands and we’ll go
D Em
Slowly to the top of the stairs
D Em D C
There’s something there, there’s something there
D G
That we can both believe in
Em C G
In orange, in orange, in orange

G D Am
All the life is flowing back to me
G D Am
Orange shades of memory
C D G Em
Watching from above a shadow of you and me sends its love
C D C D
The world fades away, the world fades away

Chorus
Track Name: Man of Stone
Man of Stone

I feel kind of alone
Even though you’re right here
Like a man made of stone
You can’t even feel my tears, Fall on you
I feel kind of alone
Don’t think it’s my imagination
Like you want to be somewhere else
Maybe with someone else, maybe

And when you look at me
Are you seeing all that you used to see
Are you seeing me
And last thing at night you turn away
And then turn off the lights
As if I’m not there, as if I’m not there

Chorus

And when you talk to me
Just a little to harsh Criticize me
Like you don’t care
And when you’re out way to late
Is it worry or fear that makes me wait
Until you come home,
Until you come home,
Come home

Chorus (slightly diff ending shown below)
Thought your love was true,
But you’re heart is with someone else
Maybe someone else,
Maybe someone else loves you too.
Track Name: The Wind of Change
The Wind of change

From the moment that we met you left your impression on me
I thought my life was complete until you came my way
Take a look at me you’d never tell what I am thinking
My intentions are not as pure pure as they ought to be

And you look so troubled baby you look so ill at ease
Don’t you know don’t you know I can give you what you need
Because the wind of change is blowing our way
And I know and I know it’s gonna bring you to me

I sense the way you feel I know you’re not satisfied
It must be hard on your soul living within a lie
I can tell you something something I’ve known all along
Life’s to short to compromise you only get one chance

And you look so troubled baby you look so ill at ease
Don’t you know don’t you know I can give you what you need
Because the wind of change is blowing our way
And I know and I know it’s gonna bring you to me

If she doesn’t know what she’s got
If she doesn’t know how to give
Let me show you how it feels to really live

And you look so troubled baby you look so ill at ease
Don’t you know don’t you know I can give you what you need
Because the wind of change is blowing our way
And I know and I know it’s gonna bring you to me
Track Name: Parallel Lines
Parallel lines

Out of my life but a whole lot nearer my heart
I stand aside while you search for your paradise
The power of love is a force that we can never rise above
Trust in love

The things that you do the things that you say
You are the light that shows me the way
Opposite paths separate lives
When will we walk these parallel lines

Musical Break

You’re so afraid that your life is passing you by
One day you’ll see that your future is clearly defined
The power of love is a force that we can never rise above
Trust in love

The things that you do the things that you say
You are the light that shows me the way
Opposite paths separate lives
When will we walk these parallel lines

The things that you do the things that you say
You are the light that shows me the way
Never quite there never the time
Always the ships that pass in the night

The things that you do the things that you say
You are the light that shows me the way
Opposite paths separate lives
When will we walk these parallel lines
