about

"The mid-point and title track of this EP, 'Critical Perfection', is the stand out track on a superb EP as Gregory pulls on the heart strings with a sumptuous break-up song. The gently plucked guitar chords beautifully compliment our heroine's dulcet tones as she grows in confidence and power in line with the swell of the band behind her. Simply beautiful."

lyrics

I feel I'm wasting, wasting my time
Wishing you were like me
After all
I'm not featured in what you see
So play your games
Look at your pictures
On your TV screen
And you can criticise all you please
But I'm not going to change
So I guess this will go your way
And I was being naiive
To think you could be like me

But I'm still working on the fashion
To live up to your expectations
Of what's critically perfection
But then it changes
How am I supposed to mention
How I feel if its means nothing
I wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do

Collect your trinkets and your trophies
When they've all lost their shine
Scatter them behind you
But leave me out of your design
Cast off the past
In with the new
And out with the old
Your always looking for the best
And what you have you put on hold
You live your life with so much to lose
Well I feel sorry for you
No value no worth
And with nothing left to choose

And I'm still working on the fashion
To live up to your expectations
Of what's critically perfection
But then it changes
How am I supposed to mention
How I feel if its means nothing
I wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do

Does it worry you in any way
That you might just feel the same
Does it worry you in any way
That you might just feel the same
And does it scare you in every way
That I know you feel the same

Cos we're all working on the fashion
To live up to the expectations
Of what's critically perfection
But then it changes
How are we supposed to mention
How we feel if its means nothing
We wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do
We wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do

Singer/songwriter from Exeter and likened to both KT Tunstall and Beth Orton, Alex has been described as an ‘awesome songwriter with the voice of a slightly naughty angel’ and ‘the darling of BBC Introducing in Devon’
