I can see you I can feel you Walking round inside me like you own the place So I try to Push and hide you But every time I turn around I see your face I think I'm working it out but you've already moved in I thought I'd turned off the lights but the sun keeps shining in I thought I'd locked all the doors but the walls melted away Hello stranger Hello you look like someone I once knew Hello sunshine My old friend Looks like you've come round again Hello stranger Glad you came Knew I'd see you Home again Can you hear me When you're near me? Always on the outside when I'm looking in If I do know where our lives go Then what's the use of life without a life within? I hear you calling my name but I just can't answer back I think I'm finding a way but you're on a different track I know I'll see you again but it's me who has to wait Hello stranger Hello you look like someone I once knew Hello sunshine My old friend Looks like you've come round again Hello stranger Glad you came Knew I'd see you Home again I'm just a step ahead of you In a place you always knew And everything you know And everything you see And everywhere you turn In every little thing I never went away There's nowhere else to go I'm living in your heart and everything you know 'Cos none of you are right You haven't got a clue You're living in a dream And I'm dreaming of you

I'm glad I've got you to myself again Been choosing you since half past ten I'm searching for a little company Easy going fun and just like me We could stay in and watch TV 'Cos that's alright with me I'm not looking for a crazy time Take a walk on a sandy beach But you're always out of reach I keep pulling but you're on another line And I would love to meet you Let my eyes complete you There's a thousand fishes But I'm running out of wishes And I'd love to love ya If the stars up above ya start to shine You'll be mine A photograph I kinda got to know Was taken quite a while ago I've seen your face so many times before Sense of humor, fun and so much more You smile and take my hand You always understand I'm not happy when you've gone too far But I always have to wait 'Cos you're always running late I keep looking but I don't know where you are And I would love to meet you Let my eyes complete you There's a thousand fishes But I'm running out of wishes And I'd love to love ya If the stars up above ya start to shine You'll be mine Keep on swimming but we're always poles apart Won't somebody sweep away this lonely heart Desperation lies alone but from the start You are all my own design 'cos it's personal this time

I count to ten And I'm falling down again I get up and then I'm just falling down again Keep getting up to take it Just grin and bear it here it comes Life isn't fair so take it Just grin and bear it here it comes Is anybody there for me at all? I'm tired of aching tryin' to break my fall Is anybody there for me at all? I'm tired of aching tryin' to break my fall I count to ten And I'm falling down again I get up and then I'm just falling down again Why do we have to take this? Why do we go another round? If life isn't going places And you're tired of falling Just stay down Is anybody there for me at all? I'm tired of aching tryin' to break my fall Is anybody there for me at all? I'm tired of aching tryin' to break my fall

There's a clown And he's painting his face with a smile But he's frowning inside all the while Making plans for the show of his life There's a light That was turned off inside him one night Extinguished and hidden and cold But not out Now the flame burns dark Roll up roll up Get down get down The carnival is coming to town The curtains up The lights are down The carnival is coming to town People come from miles around To come and see the show Fireworks and candles That everybody knows And so it goes There's a circus every day And it really takes your breath away There's a man And he's trying as hard as he can To believe what he's doing is right After all he always draws a crowd There's a sigh As the carnival lights up the sky And the crowd go their separate ways No one shows, but everybody pays Roll up roll up Get down get down The carnival is coming to town The curtains up The lights are down The carnival is coming to town People come from miles around To come and see the show Fireworks and candles That everybody knows And so it goes There's a circus every day And it really takes your breath away You really should have been there We laughed until we cried They really brought the house down But none of us survived Roll up roll up roll up The lights are down The carnival is coming The carnival is coming The carnival is coming The carnival is coming The carnival is coming It's coming...

You ain't ever gonna love me Ain't ever gonna hold me tight Ain't ever gonna hold my hand and help me count the stars at night You ain't ever gonna need me Ain't ever gonna call my name Ain't ever gonna feel alone and know that I'm the one to blame 'cos I'm the one who got away The one who couldn't stay The one you never knew Was so in love with you It's easier this way To have a part to play I'm always there for you The girl you never knew You ain't ever gonna leave me Ain't ever gonna walk away Ain't ever gonna keep me waiting hopin' you'll return some day You ain't ever gonna hurt me Ain't ever gonna make me cry Ain't ever gonna tear my heart out and never wanna say goodbye 'cos I'm the one who got away The one who couldn't stay The one you never knew Was so in love with you It's easier this way To have a part to play I'm always there for you The girl you never knew You don't know me at all What makes me think you should take me away from it all just 'cos I think you could? Well I don't need you To tell me what I need When all that I need Is not to need you Not to need you Need you Need you 'cos I'm the one who got away The one who couldn't stay The one you never knew Was so in love with you It's easier this way To have a part to play I'm always there for you The girl you never knew

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.
