Gabrielle Louise and friends Brodie Kinder and Mel Williams play "Someone Else's Life" in the living room on a clear winter day, January 2015. Captured by Teya Cranson. www.gabriellelouise.com Lyrics: Mariana wakes up before me and moving lightly 'cross the floor, she hardly makes a sound as she pulls the curtain down so I can sleep a little more Mariana steps into the morning, Dice "hola" a Luis. I can hear them on the ground, thirteen stories down, laughing in the street. And it must be noon by the time I move from the room. And it's nearly five when I open up the blinds, let in the light! I wanna wash up on the shore of him, cause I'm feeling tiny and half-drowned but for now I tread time inside of Someone Else's Life, feels like I'm waiting to be found. And oooh, but the sea is still And oooh, what do I feel? Mariana's packing up her memories because he asked, and she's sure. Now they're fussing over rings, and everything she'll bring is in boxes on the floor. And I'm trying to recognize that it's not fair to him to come around when I'm feeling torn. So for now, my heart hides inside of someone else's life, inside of someone else's Worlds below me settle slowly into coals. All the people in the park lifting children in their arms - it's getting dark. I want to wrap him up around me, wear him til he's worn. But for now my heart beats inside of someone else's dream, and mine is waiting to be born. - Gabrielle Louise, 2014
