about

Turquoise Cyan Sapphire is a 2015 release from Brit singer-songwriter Vincent Tuckwood. Over the course of 10 original songs, Tuckwood revisits his musical roots - an eclectic mix from both sides of the Atlantic - resulting in the "nearly blues" of where he is right now.

Track Name: Another Way
ANOTHER WAY - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

You could say "we’re out of options"
You could say "we’re losing track"
You could say "we’ve gone too far now"
You could say "there’s no way back"

But I won’t let you down
No I won’t let you down
This time

You could say "I hardly know you"
You could say "how can I trust
You could say "you’ve got an angle"
you could say "you’ll cut and run"

But I won’t let you down
No I won’t let you down

There’s another way
to square the circle
to be more than they think we are
There’s another way
to stand together
choose love and laugh in their face

You could say "I fear the first step"
You could say "and I fear the next"
You could say "I fear the critics"
You could say "and I fear the rest"

But you won't let me down
No you won't let me down

There’s another way
to square the circle
to be more than they think we are
There’s another way
to stand together
choose love and laugh in their face
Track Name: Cruellest Kindness
CRUELLEST KINDNESS - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

There’s a voice I heard somewhere along the way
There's a place I’ve been where a thousand birds
swooped and played
There's a piece of me
circling the moon and flying among the stars

But when I come back down there’s a thousand scars
where I cut myself
I take it out on myself
I turn myself inside and out

For cruellest kindness
For pieces of love wrapped in temporary blindness
For cruellest kindness
wrapped in temporary blindness

And when I circle the moon
and fly around the stars
You steal the sun
to pull me back to earth
And still I try to ascend
to fly among the birds
You call me back
to let me know I yearn
for cruelest kindness
Track Name: Oo-Whee
OO-WHEE - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

You ask one thing just one thing that you need
It is more than I am able
You count to 10 and then ask me again
It is more than I am able

I jumped through your hoops been what I was not too
It has all been at your bidding
Ask for one thing just one thing I have left
Well I'm sorry it's not an offer

Oo-whee, it's not just 123
Is it what you want from me
'cause I am on my knees
Oo-whee, what you want from me
Can't you even see
that I'm on my knees
Today
Track Name: Up 4 Air
UP 4 AIR - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

I get to you when I talk too loud
and put you down
You'd rather be alone in crowds
I point you out

Reach out for me it's dark and cold down here
Reach out for me just help me to come near

You look for me and I'm not there
I'm out your hair
You say I'm blank, I keep it in
behind this grin

But that doesn't mean I'm playing hide and seek
I'm not playing games or giving you a tweak

Give me time my friend
'cause I'm coming up for air
Give me time my friend
just don't say your unaware
Give me time
There is time
and I want you to be there
Give me time my friend
'cause me

I'm coming up for air
Track Name: Travelling
TRAVELLING - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

You can move so fast you stop traveling
A bullet that's gone blind from the barrelling
You’re racing time

With your feet on fire it's all you know
that asphalt melts you burn the road
for people who are following you
Just start traveling and take the time
to lean the curve and hear the rhymes
of people when they’re talking to you

You can miss the point with the slightest push
You can try to lose with your winning touch
When your time is up

It could end in a minute and you won't know it's gone
It could end in the minute with all you have not done
Track Name: Just Love
JUST LOVE - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

Let your knees shake
Let your heart break
Let it break

Let your blood flow
When it wants to
Let it flow

Let yourself go
Down the wormhole
Down you go

Yes, you’ll know
When it hits you
When it hits

It's love
Just love
Just love

All it takes is one step then the next
To the beat of the rhythm in your chest
Track Name: Rough Diamonds
ROUGH DIAMONDS - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

You are you and I am me
And we could break so easily
When they’re kicking us in shape
And we can stand and take
Their taunts and fears and crap complaints
They can't stop us
It's their weakness

You know what's strange
I'm half-and-half
I forgotten how to laugh
At the same time
I feel 10 feet tall
6 feet wide
I have got a smile inside
They can’t stop us
We are rising

We could bend until we break
We could fall to our knees
Take all that we can take
We are stronger than we think
But when they get in your head
It's tantamount to rape

They looked for blame and they found us
Though they cut and they run
They will find they have not won
They won't believe what they have done
When you pull them from the earth
Rough diamonds
Catch the sun

See the sun and the moon
You’re catching them in your eyes
Track Name: She Says She's
SHE SAYS SHE'S - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

She says she's going down
Says that she can take no more
She says she sees the writing
When she's face down on the floor
She says that when he hurts her
It's not just his fists that hit
She says she's feeling lonely
She says she's getting used to it

She says he's got his rules
She says he tells her right from wrong
She says he demands quiet
She says she's silencing her song

She turns away before the tears can fall
She looks away then I hear her whisper
That through it all

She says she wants to heal him
She says she wants to heal him
She thinks that she can heal him
Well I'm not sure

She says she’s going down
Says she's nothing left to give
She says he'll keep on taking
She says this rape it knows no end

She turns away before the tears can fall
She walks away back to him
And i’m not sure
Track Name: Egg Flip
EGG FLIP - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

I've seen you walking around
Yes, and i’ve
Seen you hanging round some other guy
Tell me, what's your excuse?
'cause when it comes between me and him
You've got to choose

We seemed to have the best thing
Yes, and we
Should have spent the rest of our lives together
Now you're cutting me loose
When it comes between me and him
You've got to choose

Did you think it was easy
Trading me in?
All I know is you’ve got to see the truth
It's me or him
It's me or him
Track Name: 50 Reasons
50 REASONS - VINCENT TUCKWOOD

If you told me you're lonely
And who's to say you’re not?
Who's to say I want anything
of what you haven't got?

You give me 50 reasons
for who you choose to be
50 reasons that sound the same
"it’s you, not me"

If you asked me to save you
And who's to say I could?
Your saviour’s there in the mirror stare
Just take a look

Your 50 reasons haunt you
They make you twice your age
They make you cry and just whine again
While you stay the same

If you told me I'm hurting
And who's to say I'm not?
Who's to say I want anything
of what you've got?

I am waiting for you to come clean and come true
I'm waiting for you to come true

I am waiting
