pipnfi A truly haunting song of spiritual origins. Reminds me of the places we grew up and made us who we are. I wish the artist all the best and look forward to future tracks.

The first track off the Bittersweet album was launched in February 2017, Melbourne Australia. Although the song had a music video to go along with it at the time of its release, Belle felt the production had failed to honour the original idea. A second video is in the making.
"I remember playing acoustic guitar by a window overlooking the sea when this song emerged. At the time I was also listening to a lot of Leonard Cohen.


Oh this house is made of wooden things
Soldiers wrapped in angel wings
And just like my daddy did
I'll build a house where love can live
Oh this house is filled with dead-end lives
They fill the rooms like fireflies
I'll build a fire to keep us warm
And feed it's light with devils thorns
Walking through the darkness
A light shines through the window
The maker of the man
Tries to bring the child home
Hiding in a forest of lost and lonely dreams
The maker of the man
Walking right beside me
Oh these walls are built with my mistakes
And time is the digger of my graves
But I'll grind them bones into drinking cups
And make wine just like my daddy does.
