Well I know that you would never leave me But when I'm alone you're always on my mind If the cruel cruel world tries to deceive me A picture of you is always by my side Is it wrong that I go on believing Or better to hurt than slowly fade away? In the night my heart is slowly bleeding But thinking a you has brightened up my day It’s so beautiful It’s so fine It’s so genius In my mind It’s so beautiful I could cry There’s such a lot of love in this world I could die There's a light that shines outside my window And every day it shines a little more As the moon and stars begin to whisper Speaking your name Wind knocking on my door ‘Cos I hear your voice across the ocean Riding away across a distant sea And I know that one thing is for certain Believing in you is more than just a dream Chorus

You can learn to love me if you try Learn to make a change and come on by You can learn to love me if you have a change of heart and start again You can learn to mend these broken wings Learn to hear the song that my heart sings You can learn to love me when you've learn to love yourself all over again Yeah, you'll know then 'cos All of the world is with you Singing along to bring you here right now You've got the love about you Nobody though it could be Never believed it would be right somehow But you've got the love about you now You can learn to love me if you try Learn to live a life and not a lie You can learn to love me if you take the time to see you're mine again You can learn to see me as I am Learn to be the one understands You can learn to love me if you learnt to love yourself all over again Yea, you'll know then ‘cos All of the world is with you Singing along to bring you here right now You've got the love about you Nobody though it could be Never believed it would be right somehow But you've got the love about you now 'Cos you've got the love You got the love The one you got will always be enough If you learn to be yourself and love comes knocking on the inside Then you'll know that you've got the love about you

Good morning Mr Macaloon and how are you today? There’s little in the way of explanation It’s getting pretty crowded and we really need the space And you came up again in conversation We’ve looked at everything you’ve done and how you’ve lived your life We’ve made the necessary calculations It seems as if you haven’t spent the time as well you should You’ve even been quite lazy on occasions Two weeks to live Two weeks to live Two weeks to live Two week to live in Two week to die Two weeks to day goodbye Or two weeks to try And start living And all the colours seem much lighter now And all the stars are shining brighter now And all the wasted opportunities Are rising up and looking new to me And it’s been so long since I breathed in the air And I’ve been so wrong not to take what was there And I swear I’m gonna live Good morning Mr Macaloon and how are you today? We're sorry but there's little explanation It's getting pretty crowded and we really have to face That sometimes there's just too much information We hope you understand that we are doing all we can It's simply an administrative error We hope you'll be accepting our humble apology 'Cos it looks as if you're gonna live forever

Day to day is all that I can do The only way that I can muddle through And this loneliness is nothing less Than waiting for the rain When love is cool again Wishing never works, no one ever hears Crying in the night, fighting off the tears But this loneliness is nothing less Than waiting for the rain When love is cool again Keep on talking to myself But I'm not getting nothing back There's someone else inside my head Screaming like a maniac Calling out the same old question Time and time again Why d'you go and stop the rain? Turn to dust whenever I’m alone See the rust, my shine is nearly gone And this loneliness is nothing less Than waiting for the rain When love is cool again

Hush now baby dry your tears We were good for seven years But honey these are different days Now everything is split two ways And if you thinking you're moving on Well you got that wrong Even though my smile is sweet You can sing a different song But it won't be long Till you're marching to my beat I will destroy you I will make your gain my own I will destroy you I will reign your heart alone until you're heartless I will destroy you I will turn you upside down I will destroy you Kick your face into the ground and pray for darkness 'Cos you had it all coming People say you're doing well But honey they can go to hell There will be no one to save When tears become a tidal wave 'Cos if you think you've got it made You should be afraid When there's nothing I can't break All the pieces of your heart Can be pulled apart I have made I can unmake Chorus I will cast your shallow hope Into a sea of sorrow Pull your dreams onto a shore Where there is no tomorrow Drag your soul across the sand Until you're just a shell Then pat you on the head and wish you well

about

What people are saying about 'Destroy' EP

"Destroy is another belter - a brilliantly overwrought, theatrical show-stopper of a song" - Record Of The Day

What people have said about Georgia Wonder's debut EP 'Hello Stranger'

"..one Grey's Anatomy soundtrack appearance away from being an international hit single" - Pop Justice

"This strikingly beautiful track from Georgia Wonder leaped out when we first heard it. A simple, restrained, haunting ballad which sounds classic but not dated" - Record Of The Day / Record Of The Week

"What a beautiful track..." - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

About Georgia Wonder

Georgia Wonder's first ever gig was in a lesbian club for a Tsunami fundraiser at which they were largely ignored. However, after winning various local radio demo panels and doing a live set on BBC Southern Counties they sent a demo to Bob Harris on Radio Two, who played their songs on his Saturday night show twice in two weeks thinking they were album tracks.

Soon after that they were invited to open for Mick Hucknall on his UK tour where they played in front of 14,000 people in a week. Using the tour as a springboard for their debut EP 'Hello Stranger' their song 'Girl You Never Knew' won praise from fans and critics alike, securing 'Record Of The Day' and 'Record Of The Week' on the ROTD tipsheet, a well respected barometer for emerging artists. The song was also Record Of The Day on Pop Justice, who called it '..one Grey's Anatomy soundtrack appearance away from being an international hit single.'

The video for 'Girl You Never Knew', shot on a budget of next to nothing and featuring lead vocalist Stephanie simply singing to the camera, was immediately picked up by Bliss TV who started playing it several times a day.

Georgia Wonder were chosen as a spotlight artist on We7 in September 2008 where all five tracks from their debut EP were in the top 10 downloads for the week with 'an exceptional response.'

The band performed a historic gig at the London American Embassy at the 2008 election night party alongside Glen Tillbrook from Squeeze and this year performed at the US Ambassadors house in London for the 4th July celebrations. Also this year they were invited to host two panels at the first ever All2gether Now music conference Berlin alongside Amanda Palmer.

Georgia Wonder's DIY approach to their music has also been noticed, having being nominated for an interactive award for their 'Hello Stranger' CD campaign where they scattered their debut EP across the UK for people to find. They also became the 14th most shared band on the planet in January 2009 after using P2P technology to distribute 50,000 EPs in four days.
