Songs by Rose Cora Perry

Away I Go

V1: What a lovely dream before it fell apart
All those lovely things you said would break my heart
And I was wrong, you were right
Can't separate the truth from all your pretty lies

Chorus:
Away I go into the darkness
Away I go I turn from all this
Cannot cope with love and madness
Away I go so I don't tell you to go

V2: What a lovely speech, you rehearsed it so well
What a lovely act with your show and tell
I thought I knew who you really were
But when the curtains fell what had seemed so real disappeared

Chorus:
You left me crumbling in the darkness
I had to turn away from all this
Pretend I'm strong and that you're worthless
Away I go so I don't tell you to go

Outro:
Just like before I fell
I knew deep down inside
Somehow you knew exactly what key to turn on my insides
Just like before I fell
I knew it'd fall apart
Maybe I love just to love and earn a broken heart

Empty

V1: I want more than this
I wanna feel the passion in a kiss
I wanna know what it’s like
To live

V2: I want more than me
I wanna dare to realize all my dreams
I wanna know what it’s like
To exist

Chorus: But all I see
Is your cloud raining down on me
And all I feel
Is empty

V3: I want more than hate
I wanna feel the light upon my face
I wanna know what it’s like
To forgive

V4: I want more than you
Tainting each and every thing I do
I wanna know what it’s like
To let go

Bridge: So empty, so empty yeah
So empty, so empty
I feel like I have lost my way
With no map to get back where I came from

Outro: I want more than this
I wanna know what it’s like to live

Six Feet Under

V1: Had a dream, had a drowning dream
I was in a river of blame
All wanting a piece of me without knowing who I am
Quick to judge and quick to defend
Quick to tell me I'm the one in the deep end

Prechorus:
They love to hate. Love to lie.
Love to try and keep us all high

V2: Had a dream, had a drowning dream
Same dream as before
No one really gives a damn about anything that anyone else stands for
Try so hard to stay aground
All they want is to push me back down

Bridge:
They want me six feet underground
I won't stop spitting at their sound
They tried to cut me down to size
I see right through their weak disguise
And I won't back down. No!

V3: I've had my dreams and I've had nightmares
Everything in the end
Tells me to keep pushing on even when it feels I've got no friends
They tear me down to get themselves ahead
They're the ones who are being mislead

Outro: I reach to the skies and call out your name
I reach to the skies in vain
And it feels like heaven's so far away

Homage to Offspring's "Gone Away"; Natalie Imbruglia's "City".

Biography:

Performer since age four. Writer since age seven. CEO of Record Label & Publicity Firm at 15.

Rose Cora Perry is the former frontwoman of major label signed act Anti-Hero and has performed at some of the world’s most renowned music festivals including: Canadian Music Week, NorthbyNortheast, Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Regatta, Warped Tour, and MEANYFest NYC.

Bringing audiences of over 500,000 to tears with her emotional sound and sincere performances, Perry has been crowned a well-respected industry pro within Canada’s music scene. In line with her efforts, in 2011, she was invited to attend the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles as a honourary special guest artist.

She's graced the covers of magazines, achieved “Top 100” radio singles, conducted numerous guest lectures, served as a Voting Committee Member for the Jack Richardson Music Awards and was elected to represent the “voice of the independent musician” in a three-month expose for Canadian Musician. In 2011 however, she received perhaps one of the biggest accolades of her already impressive self-made career: an invitation to walk the red carpet at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards as a Honourary Special Guest Artist.

While most recognized for her contributions to Canada's indie rock scene, as a classically trained performer with over 20 years on stage, Perry is skilled at singing in any genre and compelling audiences of all ages - a fact that was proved when she landed a starring role as Vivienne Kensington (Elle Wood's adversary) in Simply Theatre's production of Legally Blonde and was credited as playing the character with "the right amount of feline fastidiousness and overweening self-possession."

In 2010, Perry launched her critically acclaimed debut solo album, "Off Of the Pages" and its associated non-for-profit foundation, MusicSaves, which aims to impart onto troubled youth the healing capacity of music.

Beyond her music-making, Perry works as a Photography Model, Graphic/Web Designer, Social Media Manager/Publicist and is the brainchild of four successful column series. In 2012, she finally got to fulfilling a longstanding shelved dream of hers: to make the transition from Print Journalism to Broadcast.

Perry hosted two popular programs on RogersTV: London's Driven, a community-produced bimonthly pilot series which features young entrepreneurs striving to make a difference in the Forest City and Mosaic, a regularly scheduled “live-to-taped” weekly program which profiles members of London’s multi-cultural community and the organizations that serve them.

Rose continues to regularly lend her talents toward various non-for-profit and community events acting as an Emcee.

2016 marked the triumphant return of Rose Cora Perry (former frontwoman of signed touring act Anti-Hero) with the critically-acclaimed release of her sophomore solo album, "Onto the Floor".

A "one-of-a-kind talent", Perry's vocals have been said to be the "perfect blend of Alanis Morissette and Norah Jones" (Kaotic Notes), while her songwriting is full of "raw viseral power, killer hooks and punch-in-the-gut riffs" (Spill Magazine).

In conjunction with the album's release, Perry formed high energy powerhouse duo, The Truth Untold, featuring the exceptional talent of Tyler Randall (ex-Blind Mag/Swerve) on Drums; Perry handles Vocals, Guitar & Songwriting.

Within 6 months of coming together, The Truth Untold conquered audiences of 25,000+ , performing at notable festivals and winning over crowds of 20-somethings & babyboomers alike.

The duo's captivating live performances, coupled with their award-winning film noir Music Video trilogy series for "Onto the Floor"'s singles have taken Canada (and soon the world) by storm.

Some of their career highlights so far include:

* Named among the Top #10 indie talents across Canada (Starbeat)

* Ranked as the #1 local "Rock" act (ReverbNation)

* Selected as the only Canadian act to showcase at Summer NAMM Nashville
