about

Bethia Beadman London, UK

The Quietus described her as a cross between Maria Callas and Ziggy Stardust. Bethia Beadman' new album 'Into the Peace' has been played on BBC Radio by Robert Elms and Janice Long: Intimate and confessional, the songs emerge from a violent energy. Like the best artists, all Bethia’s life experiences have ended up in her voice – languid, velvety, with a resonant cloak of darkness. ... more

Track Name: At the Beach
Boys just dig holes in the sand
At the beach by the waterside
I don't know what it's like to be a man
And peer into the kill (into the kill, into the kill)
Out of the black into the blue
You dip your feet into the cool

Looks like a castle in the sand
If only fathers would stick around
But I don't know what it's like to be a man
I don't know what it's like to be a man.

I said we could kiss forever
But I might go insane with pleasure he said
What are you doing to me girl?
But I wasn't doing anything at all I really wasn't you see
Hell, I'm just here inhabiting the holes
That you dig and dig so you can feel better

Looks like a castle in the sand
If only fathers would stick around
But I don't know what it's like to be a man
I don't know what it's like to be a man

If I were the same you might be frightened less
And if you came body and soul
Back into the blue back into the whole
Well I wouldn't feel so overwhelmed when you are gone
Back to the black back to your rock

Looks like a castle in the sand
If only fathers would stick around
But I don't know what it's like to be a man
I don't know what it's like to be a man
Track Name: The Real Thing
Mary
I'm ready
Come get me
It's time to wrap it up
Time to wrap it up
Mother you're up

I'm ready
Ready for the real thing
I want the real thing

All those
Gone before
Have been relieved
That's all
When it's time to kiss
Time to kiss
Into the peace

I'm ready
Ready for the real thing
I want the real thing

Mary
Mary
Mary
Mary

I'm ready
Ready for the real thing
I want the real thing
I'm ready
Ready for the real thing
I want the real thing

I'm going to be
An ancient queen
Just as you
Would expect of me
In the quiet dawn it's time
When it's time it's time
The curtain call
Track Name: Music
Last night I walked by Stevie
Down the Mayfair stairs
She didn't know I was there
But I was there
You are the keeper of my keys
Thank you for keeping them tenderly
But music never did any good to me
Music never did any good to me

My mother she had a phrase
Living the life
Not the life of Riley
Just the life you can't keep
Sentimental isn't sad
She'll mend your nights sleep

But music never did any good to me
Music never did any good to me
Music never did any good to me
Ch ch ch ch chasing fantasy

Ah ah chasing fantasy
Ah ah chasing fantasy
I'm not talking about you
We are all chasing fantasy too
Music

Music never did any good to me
Music never did any good to me
Music never did any good to me
Ch ch ch ch chasing fantasy
Track Name: Peninsula
I took you to the peninsula
To the sea
I dressed you held you safe
You balanced on me
We walked out onto the sand
Into the blue
Hello spider hello killer hello saviour
Oh mother I love you

There was a dream under my skin
There you crept
All the way to my heart
You took my blood for another pet
You took my blood stopped it tight
Said it wasn't true
Hello spider hello killer hello saviour
Oh mother I love you

I love you
I love you

You took my blood stopped it tight
Said it wasn't true
Hello spider hello killer hello saviour
Oh mother I love you
Track Name: Horses
I slipped into my copper bath
And reached the open sea
Just another love
No land ahead
No civilisation
Nothing between my animal and me

Across the waves those endless waves came horses
Black and blonde and dark and golden horses
Across the waves from the four corners came horses
They picked my body up and lay me down across a sturdy back
Face down my ankles dangling under
Horses came like thunder

They held me high above the water
And licked my face like a chosen daughter
They warmed me with their breath
And when they brought me back to life they gave me choices
No civilisation
Without a soul waiting to be free

Across the waves those endless waves came horses
Black and blonde and dark and golden horses
Across the waves from the four corners came horses
They picked my body up and lay me down across a sturdy back
Face down my ankles dangling under
Horses came like thunder

Across the waves those endless waves came horses
Black and blonde and dark and golden horses
Across the waves from the four corners came horses
They picked my body up and lay me down across a sturdy back
Face down my ankles dangling under
Horses came like thunder
They picked my body up and lay me down across a sturdy back
Face down my ankles dangling under
Horses came like thunder
Track Name: featuring Mike Mills - Nile to the Sea
Six weeks to go
And the answer's in the smoke
Forget me not sweetest thing
I keep my hope
My sister always says nice weather for the time of year
It's a joke
Ooh ooh it's the Nile to the sea
Ooh ooh it's the Nile to the sea

My mother always says a great love needs a test
My father didn't stick it out but showed me how to separate the wheat from the chaff
I couldn't count on a deserter and you seem to have deserted yourself
For certain
You've got to give it up for good

It's the Nile to the sea
It's the Nile to the sea
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
It's the Nile to the sea
Track Name: featuring Mike Mills - Still My Baby
You're old
I'm young
All those years to catch up on
Better get over you while I'm still strong
You showed me the place you might retire
Now you're the dust and I'm the fire
And if we ever reach the twilight hours
And I've missed my youth and baby showers

Still you're my baby
But you've got me where you want me
And still you're gone
Still you're gone

All those years before we met
How could you see me coming
How could you know how long you'd wait
And how will I see you going
Shall I find a younger guy much younger than myself?
But I'd never wish being left behind upon anybody else

Still you're my baby
But you've got me where you want me
And still you're gone
Still you're gone
Still you're my baby
But you've got me where you want me
And still you're gone
Still you're gone

Baby might have been a long time coming
But when a woman is done she's done
Done for good so you'd better get a move on
Not much time left for you honey
So why not take me in your arms
For all the love that's due

You're old
I'm young

Still you're my baby
But you've got me where you want me
And still you're gone
Still you're gone
Still you're my baby
But you've got me where you want me
And still you're gone
Still you're gone
Still you're my baby
But you've got me where you want me
And still you're gone
Still you're gone

Better get over you while I'm still strong
Track Name: Lovers & Angels
Still some time to put the ghost to bed
I'm here just say the word
We'll take the shadows
It's not to late for lovers
Forget the world

No second thoughts
Let's breathe desire
There's no time at all
But it feels like fire

So you find me celestial
Well now heaven's above
What are you looking at?
It's not to late for lovers
To meet on the grounds of love

No second thoughts
Let's breathe desire
There's no time at all
But it feels like fire

Come over here come on now
There's no thoughts of yesterday
What's said and done well it can stay there
You don't need it anymore
Come on now let's take a shower
No lipstick marks on glass for me
Can't you see?
I'm naked over here

No second thoughts
Let's breathe desire
There's no time at all
But it feels like fire
No second thoughts
Let's breathe desire
There's no time at all
But it feels like fire

Now it's just you and me babe
The stars and the sun
The moon's just coming up
It's not too late for lovers and angels to come
Track Name: featuring Mike Mills - Leaving Song
In the English countryside
Too quiet for you
Not far enough away from London for a country man
It's just the end of innocence
A little soon to be content
It's the wilderness for a country man

How does it feel to be the rose
Of course sunlight filled the church
Your leaving song

Carefully she came to sign
Her parting words be strong be kind
How to summarise?
Like something borrowed and something blue
I promise there's no curse
It had to be her

How does it feel to be the rose
Of course sunlight filled the church
Your leaving song

A vixen was your mother
And she moved your father's world
Now the February clouds are here

How does it feel to be the rose
How does it feel to be the rose
Only to experience
What it is to grow my friend
And die the same
How does it feel to be the rose
Of course sunlight filled the church
Your leaving song
