Tracks 04:04
If you want to know me ask these fields Where every blade of grass has acted like a shield Holding memories of mine Now I'm inviting you inside to Walk the paths I used to roam See the land I call my home Hear the train tracks shuddering Sit by the pond where I fell in If you want to know me climb the trees Every branch could tell a story about me Listen to the whispers in the breeze  Let them blow away your worries Walk the paths I used to roam See the land I call my home Hear the train tracks shuddering Sit by the pond where I fell in Walk the paths I used to roam See the land I call my home Hear the train tracks shuddering Sit by the pond where I fell in Take a seat upon the hill Hold yourself against the chill Above the city that raised me In these fields where I ran free

Taking Shape 04:02
We're trading places And you're taking shape And I’ll make a space for you We make mistakes And we're always changing And my heart would break for you Words are hammers as they preach Telling us how we should heal But it is not a simple truth Closing in, angry sky Reaching in so we can’t hide But I will try to fight for you Heavy air surrounds us The heat threatens to drown us We’re broken but can’t break through We're trading places And you're taking shape And I’ll make a space for you We make mistakes And we're always changing And my heart would break for you Our bodies lie beyond their reach We’re tangled up in things we need I am melting into you We're trading places And you're taking shape And I’ll make a space for you We make mistakes And we're always changing And my heart would break for you We're trading places And you're taking shape And I’ll make a space for you

Home 03:07
With you is the only place that feels like home But how long will you stay, I don't know I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone I don't know why you keep on walking away What have I done How can I make you stay Make it stop I don't like the rain today I want to stay dry I don't want to take the blame With you is the only place that feels like home But how long will you stay, I don't know I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone Maybe it's time I stop letting the tide suck me in Gotta start swimming Maybe it's time but I don't know how to begin I've been treading water Gotta learn to swim With you is the only place that feels like home But how long will you stay, I don't know I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone With you is the only place that feels like home But how long will you stay, I don't know I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone

Footprints 04:30
Sometimes my reflection is unclear My eyes are clouded by the things I fear I want to build something strong but I can barely carry on Take me home, take me home I stare down to the water I step into the river I’m carried by the ripples And a thousand tiny cries Teach me, I’m your daughter Take me to the answer I’m carried by the trickles And the thousand times I tried ‘cause I don’t know where I’m meant to go But I’ll leave my footprints to follow home And I’m not sure what I’m waiting for  But one day I’ll make sense of it all Strong against the calling of regret I closed my ears to its worried threats Something calls out to me, there is more than what you see You are more, than you’ve known before ‘cause I don’t know where I’m meant to go But I’ll leave my footprints to follow home And I’m not sure what I’m waiting for  But one day I’ll make sense of it all I’ve been walking for so long My skin weighs heavy on my bones But I will always carry on ‘cause I don’t know where I’m meant to go But I’ll leave my footprints to follow home And I’m not sure what I’m waiting for  But one day I’ll make sense of it all

Minney’s songs are inspired as much by her mental health and the people she’s interacted with as they are by the daily paintings that the world makes for her. Though deeply personal, her songs have an ability to be felt and understood by almost everyone. ... more
