Graham Burgin Wow. Stumbled across Malaya in an email, researched on YouTube and her website ( malayablue.com ) and bought the CD from Bandcamp. Listened to the download already and what a great collection of songs.

Looking forward to receiving the CD and signed photo and seeing Malaya live at The 100 Club in London in October 2015.

So much great music - so little time ................... Favorite track: Dawn.

Track Name: Bourbon Street
Taking a Ride down Bourbon Street
Crowds pushing and shovin
In the city heat
Theres a sense of excitement
Watch it come alive
In technicolour Neon
An explosion of light

Dixieland Blues, Creole Rhythm fills the air
Sights and those sounds, you just won't find anywhere
Doors open wide, anything your heart desires
Bars and the strip clubs, where temptation lights the fire

The fun never stops on Bourbon Street
Beer at 4 Dollars
Flowing like a stream
Hurricane cocktail
Pat O'Briens feel the mood
Down from Canal Street
Esplanade Avenue

Dixieland Blues, Creole Rhythm fills the air
Sights and those sounds, you just won't find anywhere
Doors open wide, in the heart of New Orleans
Coming alive , down Bourbon Street


Taking a ride, down Bourbon Street
Taking a ride, down Bourbon Street
Track Name: Forgiveness
I was so wrong
So sorry
For the pain I put you through
There’s a thousand things baby
I would like to say to you
Oh can’t you see
I want forgiveness
Your forgiveness
Please forgive me

I wish I could summon up the courage
But the timings never right
I’m a bad girl, unruly
That wants to run away and hide
Oh I’m so weak
I need forgiveness
Your forgiveness
Please forgive me

We had a plan
A vision
But all that’s left is shattered glass
And that picture frame darling
Should hold the good times from the past
Sweet memories
I want forgiveness
Your forgiveness
Please forgive me
Track Name: Bitter Moon
THE BITTER MOON

He threw my love away
and now I’m broken in two
What can I do
He played a wicked game
That left me empty inside
The tears that I’ve cried

Baby you have shamed me
You took my heart, betrayed me
This fever burning so hot
Now I can’t stop
Sitting under the bitter moon

He led me down the path
Was that just part of a plan
Of a cold hearted man
They say forget the past
But I will spend every day
Making him pay

Baby you have shamed me
You took my heart, betrayed me
This fever burning so hot
Now I can’t stop
Sitting under the bitter moon

And one day you will see
No one makes a fool of me
And even though I try, all this anger I can’t hide
The message I will send
Gonna get my sweet revenge
Soaking up the mood of the bitter moon
I’ll come for you soon

You better believe it, it’s gonna be soon, you better believe it

Baby you have shamed me
You took my heart, betrayed me
This fever burning so hot
Now I can’t stop
Going under

Baby you have shamed me
You took my heart and played me
This fever burning so hot
Now I can’t stop
Sitting under the bitter moon
Track Name: Lost Girl
Lost Girl

I’m just a lost girl in the big world
And I can’t see what’s in front of me
Heading down the winding road

I got my bags packed
And my boots on
Leave this old shack
Moonlight flit and run
Getting out on my own

I’m so confused
I don’t know if I’m crazy or sane
What should I do
I’m outta my mind
I need to be saved

I need to be saved

I’m just a lost girl in the big world
And I’m on the edge, just a nervous wreck
Falling down the slippery slope

And now I’m hell bent
On a mission to seek
Gotta find myself an identity
Cos there’s no doubt
There must be hope

I’m so confused
I don’t know if I’m crazy or sane
What should I do
I’m outta my mind
I need to be saved

I’m wanting to be saved

I’m so confused
I don’t know if I’m crazy or sane
What should I do
I’m outta my mind
So help me I’m confused
I don’t know if I’m crazy or sane
What should I do
I’m outta my mind
I need to be saved, I need to be saved

Im just a lost girl, just a lost girl
Track Name: Lady Sings The Blues
I shiver when I hear the radio
You smoulder with a voice of pure gold
Its perfection sent from heaven
Your calling with the message in that son
The passion and the memories linger on
Ill keep waiting, ill be staying here for you

It’s amazing when the lady’s sings the blues

We listen after midnight on the early morning show
The night owls and truckers
When the world is moving slow
I look outside the window
Such a peaceful time of day
Chillin with the music
So easy is the pace

The magic of the starts up in the sky
They compliment the feeling here inside
Its amazing when the lady sings the blues

Sings the blues

Its amazing amazing amazing

Hypnotising rhythm then she put her spell on me
A beautiful rendition of the sweetest melody
Timeless are those records
From a golden age of jazz
There never gonna leave us
Happy living in the past

Unwinding as the DJ says goodbye
I’ll re-run all the memories in my dreams tonight
I’ll be singing
I’ll be swaying to your tunes
Oh its amazing when the lady sings the blues
Track Name: Ivory Tower
IVORY TOWER


Yeah eh eh

It was the age old tale of boy meets girl
But soon you left me for another world
When the going got tougher, it was time to split
You don’t wanna know how the other half live
No no

In the Ivory Tower
You think you’ve got the power
But I still believe
Sooner or later you’ll be in the rough with me

Woah oh oh oh

I see you’re locked away from all the sin
Rose coloured glasses hiding everything
And your penthouse is shelter from heavy storms
Behind the shutters with the curtains drawn yeah yeah

In the Ivory Tower
You think you’ve got the power
But It’s plain to see
Sooner or later you’ll be in the rough with me ……..oh oh yeah
Sooner or later you’ll come running back to me

Climbing down from the top
Feel the dirt in your hands
And the journey won’t stop
Until we’ve reached the wasteland

In the Ivory Tower
You think you’ve got the power
But I still believe
Sooner or later you’ll come running back to me
In the Ivory Tower
You think you hold the power
But It’s plain to see
Sooner or later you’ll be in the rough with me

Oh yeah
Just wait and see
Woah oh oh oh
Track Name: Bluesville UK
BLUESVILLE UK


I’m listening to the news cast
All the bad things that come our way
Falling down, down, down, down
Under the weight
Living here, right now
In Bluesville UK

I’m standing in the shadows
Trying to break out of this sorry groove
But I’m pinned down, down, down, down
Sticking like glue (yeah it’s true)
Cos it’s here, right now
The Great British blues
Ooh, ooh, ooh

From London to Norwich (London to Glasgow)
South Yorkshire, Lancaster Gate
We’re all feeling down, down, down, down
Under the strain (and from the rain)
Living here, right now
In Bluesville UK
In Bluesville UK
Track Name: Dawn
As she lays next to you
Asleep in your bed
I am with you too
Asleep in your head
And when I wake this morning
You will be there too,
Next to her, perhaps
But beside me too
As you turned in the night,
Your skin touched hers
Its warmth and its softness
Yearned and yearned
But as your hands hold her body
It is mine you caress
And its me you undress

Chorus

Dawn, come and rescue me
Save me from the misery
Take this broken heart and mend it
Dawn only you can end it
Dawn, come and rescue me
As you break the sky
Dawn You set me free


The pain grows stronger
As the days go by
I let you go
I don’t know why
Didn’t think you loved me
Couldn’t see past fear
You took another
Say she’s not me
The days get longer
From months to years
Only the darkest hours
See my tears
It’s a spoken story
That’s been sung before
But its my first time darling
My first time alone

Dawn, come and rescue me
Save me from the misery
Take this broken heart and mend it
Dawn only you can end it
Dawn, come and rescue me
As you break the sky
Dawn You set me free
Track Name: blues, - Guilty
GUILTY


I don’t need no lie detector
Tell me something’s wrong tonight
Don’t you give your sugar coating
Pretend everything’s alright
Cos I know your dirty secret
And the truth has come to light

I say you do
You say you don’t
Say you do, say you don’t
Babe I’ll never let it go
You look guilty, guilty to me

I say I’m right
You say I’m wrong
Say I’m right, never wrong
Babe I’ve known it all along
You are guilty
Guilty as can be

I don’t want no tame confession
Can’t you see it’s far too late
Baby I’ve been undercover
And discovered you’re a fake
Guess it’s time to break the silence
But no difference it will make

I say you do
You say you don’t
Say you do, say you don’t
Babe I’ll never let it go
You look guilty, guilty to me

I say I’m right
You say I’m wrong
Say I’m right, never wrong
Babe I’ve known it all along
You are guilty
Guilty as can be

You’re so guilty
Babe you’re guilty
You’re so guilty
Track Name: Ive Cried a Little
Since you went away
Oh I’ve cried a little
Guess I’ve cried a lot yeah
And I work to hide the pain
Yeah I try a little
Guess I try a lot

Every day every night
Every day every night
I keep fighting through
But things don’t improve
There’s something missing in my life
Its all because , because of you

When I hear our song
Oh I smile a little
Guess I smile a lot
All those good times in the sun
Baby we laughed a little
Yes, we laughed a lot

Every beat of my heart
Every beat of my heart beats in double time
For a love that’s died
There’s something missing in my life
Its all because because of you

Every day every night
Every day every night
I keep fighting through
But things don’t improve
There’s something missing in my life
Its all because. because of you

Its all because, because of you
Track Name: blues, - Cold Hearted Man
Cold Hearted Man


I have to break free
I need to run
From a cold hearted man
A cold hearted man
I’ll leave that cold hearted man
Just watch out here I come

Bitter and twisted
Bad through and through
Such a cold hearted man
A cold hearted man
He’s a cold hearted man
That treated me so cruel (Who treated me so cruel)

Write it in a letter
Call him on the phone
Tell him I aint ever, ever coming home
Say it’s finally over
The finish line in sight
I’ve found my destination
Breaking free tonight

From a cold hearted man
A cold hearted man
I’ll leave that cold hearted man
Make everything alright
Yeah eh eh
Just watch me fly
Alright

Write it in a letter
Call him on the phone
Tell him I aint ever, ever coming home
Say it’s finally over
The finish line in sight
I’ve found my destination
Breaking free tonight

From a cold hearted man
A cold hearted man
Escape the cold hearted man
And leave him far behind…..yeah yeah eh

He’s a cold hearted man
A cold hearted man
He’s a cold hearted man
That treated me so cruel
Track Name: How Did You Do This
Woken up this morning
With a fracture on my heart
I can feel the desperation
As it tries not to fall apart
I’m sad to see the mirror
And my picture seems to change
My smile is sat all crooked
Any my light is in the shade

How did you do this?
When you came it felt like rain
Fresh pure translucent
Tracing down my window pane
How did you so this, to me?

I woke up in the early hours
With your face behind my eyes
I’ve been dreaming bout you baby
And for some time it felt so nice
But when I realise, that I’m still sat home alone
Your side of the bed still made
And now I know that your gone

How did you do this?
When you came it felt like rain
Fresh pure translucent
Tracing down my window pane
How did you so this, to me?


And so, my day is done
And this song is my tale
Don’t know how I went so round and round
To just keep coming back to this again
Let this be a lesson to you
No, don’t you give your heart away
Let this be a lesson to you
No, don’t you give your heart away
Track Name: Cold Light of Day
The Cold Light Of Day

Missing you, missing you……yeah oh oh oh

Felt so easy
Caught up in the mood
An emotional night
I can’t help it
Temperamental fool
Unforgiving was that glance
Thought I had the upper hand

In the cold light of day
It don’t feel so good
When the going gets tough
I’m fading, I’m fading away
In the cold light of day
Now the anger’s gone and I’m all alone
I’m wishin’, I’m wishin’ you’d stayed
Instead of walking away

Pure redemption
Let me turn back time
I’d be that someone, you, you could trust
But we never get chance to rewind
So I’ll sit here and I’ll brood
Sinking slowly in my blues

In the cold light of day
It don’t feel so good
When the going gets tough
I’m fading, I’m fading away
In the cold light of day
Now the angers gone and I’m all alone
I’m wishin’, I’m wishin’ you stayed
Instead of running away, run away



In the cold light of day
It don’t feel so good
When push comes to shove
I’m fading, I’m fading away

In the cold light of day
Now the anger’s gone
And I’m all alone
I’m wishin’, I’m wishin’ you’d stayed
Wishin’ you’d stayed
Track Name: Promised Land
Promised Land

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Yeah yeah yeah
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

I can see that times are changing
And I know it’s in our hands (and I know it’s in my hands)
Looking for a destination
Destination is the promised land

All around these walls are crumbling
Every day we hide our tears
People want to find an answer
And the answer is plain and clear

Oh oh woah
I’m still a believer
Oh oh woah
Yes I am
Oh oh woah
I’ll keep on reaching for that promised land

I can feel there’s trouble comin’
Find a way, don’t light the fuse
This is real, so no more playing
I’ll be fighting to break on through

Many roads have led to nowhere
All those dreams and wasted plans
Looking for some inspiration
Inspiration in the promised land

Oh oh woah
I’m a believer
Oh oh woah
Yes I am
Oh oh woah
I’ll keep on searching for that promised land …….yeah, yeah
For that promised land ……..alright

Oh oh woah
I’m still a believer
Oh oh woah
Yes I am
And oh oh woah
I’ll keep on reaching for that promised land….yeah
Find the promised land
Find that promised land
