about

Ariana Brophy Edmonton, Alberta

Ariana Brophy is the songwriting equivalent of mulled wine; sweet, nostalgic, perfectly paired with a rainy evening and a fireplace. With vocal clarity that would suggest she has been singing a lifetime, she writes songs that weave heartbreak, love, hope and loss onto a canvas of stylized fingerpicking and expert harmony, exploring what it means to genuinely feel. ... more

Track Name: Stay Here
Sunshine streaming through the glass
On the bedspread, it is past
Eleven thirty, yet here we are
Beneath the blankets, in your arms

The phone is ringing, turn it off
Birds are singing songs of love
So smile at me, with your eyes
I will kiss you, your demise

Let’s just stay here
Nothing’s more clear
I don’t want to get up, Get up
Let’s stay in bed, it’s enough
For you to hold me, my dear
Just hold me, my dear

Well you want coffee, I want tea
But more I want you here with me
Let’s eat our breakfast back in bed
Then disappear to rest our heads

Cause time is racing, racing past
Who knows how long our love will last
I’ll take what time is left to me
To just be here, with you and free
You and me

Let’s just stay here
Nothing’s more clear
I don’t want to get up, Get up
Let’s stay in bed, it’s enough
For you to hold me, my dear
Just hold me, my dear

Eleven thirty, yet here we are
Beneath the blankets, in your arms
Track Name: Ink and Water
The water in the river seems a little high this spring
And the leaves on all the trees are finally turning green
It’s been a while since I felt fresh as this
Or since I had the chance to steal a kiss from you

The moon last night was shining in my window bright
I woke up at 3:11 thinking you were right beside me, holding tight
There’s one last thing for me to do
I’ve got to say goodbye to you

A picture of you in ink
A bottle that won't sink
And if it gives into the waves
Well I know how ink behaves
And it'll bleed like me
Ink and water, memories


I've got gravel in my knees from skidding out
And when my bike went sideways I gave a shout
Just like that time I took a tumble and you laughed at me
Ain’t it funny how easy things used to be

A picture of you in ink
A bottle that won't sink
And if it gives into the waves
Well I know how ink behaves
And it'll bleed like me
Ink and water, memories

The wind just took away our little flame
From the green candle in the window, it’s a shame
That I never saw it coming, but what can I do
Knowing you still love me, and I still love you

A picture of you in ink
A bottle that won't sink
And if it gives into the waves
Well I know how ink behaves
And it'll bleed like me
Ink and water, memories
Track Name: Feeling Like The Moon, feat. Trevor McNeely
Woke up this morning feeling like the moon
Found a dream worth dreaming, ended far too soon
Couldn’t put my finger on all the reasons why
Woke up this morning wanting just to cry

Held my cup of coffee, stared out into the snow
Spend an hour wondering if I cared to go
Face the world and all the ways I didn’t understand
Why I couldn't be your woman
Track Name: Sometimes
Somedays I hurt like this
With my knees pulled up beneath my chin
And my fingers clenched in fists
Somedays I hurt like this

Sometimes I fall apart
When my breath feels like a hundred knives
are dancing in my heart
Sometimes I fall apart

When I close my eyes so I can’t see
And the tears are raging wild and free
I’m weaker than I seem to be
And stronger than I feel
But these inner thoughts are real

Sometimes I can’t let go
There are things I know I can’t control
Like if you’re the one I'll get to hold
Sometimes I can’t let go

Sometimes I fall apart
When my breath feels like a hundred knives
are dancing in my heart
Sometimes I fall apart

When I close my eyes so I can’t see
And the tears are raging wild and free
I’m weaker than I seem to be
And stronger than I feel
But these inner thoughts are real

Sometimes I fall apart
Sometimes I fall apart
Track Name: Don't Worry
Honey I can see the water rushing past me in the stream
And honey I can smell the rain that falls and the coffee at my feet
So why are you surprised I know you're lying when you say these things to me

I have seen you laugh and cry, I know you're happiest when you are feeling free
I danced with you beneath the stars, and in the moonlight you could not conceal your glee
But now your smile won't reach your eyes and you won't say it but I know the reasons me

I'll be alright
Don't worry about me

I know that you want to be friends, and I could lie but I'll just say I disagree
It's not that I don't care for you, that isn't true, this is just easier for me
Say what you will, but breaks are easier to heal when they are clean

I’ll be alright
Don't worry about me
I'll be alright
Don't worry about me
Track Name: If Only
Don’t feed me
Those white lies
I know them all by heart
Just hold me
tight against your chest
And don’t leave me tonight

Each time
You return to her
I am left to fall apart
But now you’re mine
To curl into
If only til first light

If only for tonight
