(release interview 2019)

My debut album; Bigger than Me (September 2019) embodies a collection of original songs that shares my journey of empathy, tenacity and resolution. My songs reflect sensibility, perseverance and aspiration. For me, writing music begins with feeling, a melody and accompaniment. As a singer/songwriter my music is a visual expression created with sound.  My songs are a composition and art form to be shared.

alone tonite
troubles are out of sight
I’d like to let you in to see
you are a mystery
like a shooting star
spinning down, from heaven to see

I’d like to let you in
I’d like to let you see, I’ve changed and I feel free
I’d like to let you in
I’d like to let you see, I’ve changed and I feel free

can’t make no promises
can’t change the time
but I can say I love you
I can pour you wine

can’t make no promises
can’t change the time
but I can say I love you
I can pour you wine

is this holy land, it’s not so clear to me
seen some faces and places I don’t want to see
wouldn’t you like to get
down on your knees
find a better place
a safe place to stay

wouldn’t you like to find
some peace of mind
hear some words that are kind
I’d like to let you in
I’d like to let you see
I’ve changed and I feel free

I’d like to let you in
I’d like to let you see
I’ve changed and I feel free

no promises

bigger than me

lyrics & music – Amy Porchelli
piano & vocals – Amy Porchelli
electric & acoustic guitar – Aaron Porchelli
cello – Stephen Katz
percussion & drums – Joe Fitzpatrick

at times I feel most things are bigger than me
it’s not the ocean and the mountains you see
it’s more the ambiguity
it’s more the silence that begins between you and me

at times I feel most things are bigger than me
it’s not the moon and the stars in the sky
it’s more the faces of strangers that pass me by
it’s more the absence of tears we never cry

why don’t you stay
why don’t you see
old photographs fade away
memories of love remain

why don’t you stay
why don’t you see
old photographs fade away
memories of us remain

at times I feel most things are bigger than me
it’s not circumstance or words that we say
it’s more the letting go
for freedom that I pray
It’s more the letting go
for freedom I play

why don’t you stay
why don’t you see
old photographs fade away
memories of love remain

why don’t you stay
why don’t you see
old photographs fade away
memories of us remain

standing before my wishing well
my daddy used to say
If you take this penny and throw it in
maybe your dreams will come true someday

standing before my wishing well
I took the coin and threw it in
it sank to the bottom and left me hollow within

wishing well
what do you have to tell
wishing well
tell me something beautiful

standing before my wishing well
my lover used to say
If you take this penny and let it go
maybe your soul will fly away

waiting with this burning fire
my aching flesh and bones
I believe you just might be
a scared chamber of stone

wishing well
what do you have to tell
wishing well
tell me something beautiful

wishing well
what do you have to tell
wishing well
tell me something beautiful

wishing well
what do you have to tell
wishing well
Send me your angels

standing before my wishing well
my daddy used to say
If you take this penny and throw it in
maybe your dreams will come true someday

breakline

lyrics & music – Amy Porchelli
piano & vocals – Amy Porchelli
electric guitar & vocals – Aaron Porchelli
bass – Chris Cox
percussion & drums – Joe Fitzpatrick

spent three years in an envious land
hard lessons learned of a love
I didn’t understand
living with voices
burned like matches in my mind
But, oh to love, is what I wanted to try

giving it all
not wanting to fall
was walking my high wire
thought we had it all
taking not giving
like enemies do
when all is said and done
I’m one not two

now, I’m flying so high
hitting my breakline
not giving in, sun is by my side
moon is up ahead
still tonite I’m wondering
where will I lay my head

feels we made it to the other side
yesterday, words unbittered and kind
words are like flowers
unfolding in my mind
Awakened to love, ready to shine

now, I’m flying so high
hitting my breakline
not giving in, sun is by my side
moon is up ahead
still tonite I’m wondering
where will I lay my head

now, I’m flying so high
hitting my breakline
not giving in, sun is by my side
moon is up ahead
still tonite I’m wondering
where will I lay my head

now, we’re flying so high
hitting my breakline
not giving in, sun is by my side
moon is up ahead
still tonite we’re wondering
where will I lay my head

now, I’m flying so high
hitting my breakline
not giving in, sun is by my side
moon is up ahead
still tonite I’m wondering
where will I lay my head

no reasons

lyrics, piano & vocals – Amy Porchelli

I’m fallen’, I’m fallen’
I’m loosing control
I’m fallen’, I’m fallen’
I’m letting go
I’m drifting I loosing ground
I’m listening without a sound

and it feels like a wave
is rushing over my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like the wind is racing
straight through my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

I’m fallen’, I’m fallen’
I’m fallen’ in love
I’m thinking, I’m thinking of
things from above
and I’m searching, I’m touching ground
I’m was lost
think I’ve be found

and it feels like a wave
is rushing over my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like the wind is racing
straight through my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like a wave
is rushing over my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like the sun is burning
burning my soul
It’s filling’ my heart
with an amber glow

I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

the mess

music – Amy Porchelli
lyrics – Deb McMillan-Lynch
piano & vocals – Amy Porchelli
electric, acoustic guitar & vocals – Aaron Porchelli
bass – Chris Cox
percussion & drums – Joe Fitzpatrick

we had the best, of what could be
we did it all, saw all to see
loved in a way, that set us free
we both know, we had the best

You gave me your trust
believed in me
you gave me love, unconditionally
and now we have fallen so endlessly
I was untrue
I made this mess, for me and you

I confess, I made this mess
words can’t express, how I distress
Love you more, than you know
I made this mess
And now you’ll go

how could I have lived so carelessly
when I was only living my destiny
we had the best of what could be
I was untrue
I made this mess, for me and you

If you go away
It’ll be just be me
I can’t survive
If it’s just me

what I have done
what can I do
to make you stay
to get to you

I can’t finesse, I made this mess
words can’t express, how I obsess
I love you more, than you know
I made this mess
and hurt you so
I confess, I made this mess
words can’t express, how I distress
love you more, than you know
I made this mess
and hurt you so

fallin

lyrics, piano & vocals – Amy Porchelli

I’m fallen’, I’m fallen’
I’m loosing control
I’m fallen’, I’m fallen’
I’m letting go
I’m drifting I loosing ground
I’m listening without a sound

and it feels like a wave
is rushing over my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like the wind is racing
straight through my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

I’m fallen’, I’m fallen’
I’m fallen’ in love
I’m thinking, I’m thinking of
things from above
and I’m searching, I’m touching ground
I’m was lost
think I’ve be found

and it feels like a wave
is rushing over my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like the wind is racing
straight through my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like a wave
is rushing over my skin
I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin

and it feels like the sun is burning
burning my soul
It’s filling’ my heart
with an amber glow

I don’t know where to end
I don’t know where to begin
