about

GREENHOUSE BLUES, Lottie Liams' debut EP, is about feelings of a strange inadequacy surrounded by lush green imagery. The record- made up of four songs, each with its own vibe and story to tell- is a journey through Lottie's mind, songwriting and creative experimentation.

Track Name: Butterfly Milk
Butterfly Milk

Ah ah

Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah
Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk

Butterfly milk in the tears you cry
When you gotta leave your lover behind
‘cause there’s a job in the city
that you really want
And your boy, he’s got a nice
but you didn’t really like him anyway
but you’re sad to see him go anyway

Everybody says “what’s the use in crying?
There’s nothing but a silver lining!” So,

Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah
Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah

Butterfly milk in the song you sing
when you say guess who gave her the diamond ring
And you know damn well she’s the one
but you’re still thinking in the back of your mind
what the hell have you done?

Everybody says “what’s the use in crying?
There’s nothing but a silver lining!” So,

Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah
Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah
Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah
Don’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah ah

I don’t like change, I don’t like change
Even when it’s what I asked for,
what I want
I don’t like change ‘cause it means something has to die
and I’m not so good
at saying goodbye

Everybody says “It’s okay to be crying
When there’s nothing but a silver lining!”
But there’s always a silver lining

So I
Won’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah I
Won’t go crying over nothing but butterfly milk
Ah I
Won’t go, I won’t go won’t go
won’t go, I won’t go

Ah ah
Track Name: Too Good
Too Good

I never had you
but I sure miss your love
I’ve stopped drowning in the bathtub
but I’m still coughing up blood

I messed this up

You’re a good boy, forgot you’re good, boy
never forgot you, boy
And I’m a sharp blade, wish I was sharkbait
Come save me, boy

But you’re too good,
You’re too good

I’m not saying I’ve been waiting
but I’m here if you want me
I know you’re gold and I’m just glass
but I’m done shattering

You’re too good for me
Oh you’re too good

I ran to a boy who cared more about his tears
than my blood
I always run to boys who I don’t even want

But you’re too good,
Oh you’re too good

I’m not saying I’ve been waiting
but I’m here if you want me
I know you’re gold and I’m just glass
but I’m done shattering

You’re too good for me
Oh you’re too good

I’m not saying I’ve been waiting
but I’m here if you want me
I know you’re gold and I’m just glass
but I’m done shattering

You’re too good for me
Oh you’re too good

Oh you’re too good
Oh you’re too good
Track Name: Numbness
Numbness

I was crafted after the sky before a storm
Watch the clouds and wait for me to clap my thunder
I was crafted after the ocean in a storm
Darkness rolls around me but its already within me

The numbness, it runs in my veins
And my soul may be grey
But my hands are painted gold

Sticks and stones make castles and thrones
And all you ever wanted was for us to be kings
Well I will wear the armour, and you
you can wear your gown
For I would rather wield a sword
than wear some bloodied crown

The numbness, it runs in my veins
And my soul may be grey
But my hands are painted gold

The numbness, I feel it in my bones
But after all this time
I think my blood is turning gold
Track Name: Galaxy Child
Galaxy Child

I painted her eyes black and we painted hallways blue
Talkin’ bout all the monster we’d killed
with bloodstained pride

She drowned as sea
And I was buried alive
Trynna find our way to the surface

Rings of Saturn hang around my neck
And the cosmos is dripping from her bones
And there’s a universe between her ears
And I wanna learn it all

She is starry eyed
She is starry eyed
Have you met her? Have you seen her?
The galaxy child?
She is starry eyed in the black of night

She comes from a place where the rain seeps into your skin
She comes from a place where the air you breath is thin
And her Daddy’s just a paper cut-out

Told us they would fix us by locking us away
But we are so much more than what they say
Cause I am destruction
And she is absolution
Together we burn brighter than the sun

Stars are quaking on my forearms
and the nebula is caught up in her teeth
and there’s a universe beneath her ribcage
and I wanna learn it all

She is starry eyed
She is starry eyed
Have you met her? Have you seen her?
The galaxy child?
She is starry eyed in the black of night

Forgive me for my sensitivity
I am an alien trapped on the ground
Forgive me for my adoration
Your planetary face makes me feel safe

She is starry eyed
She is starry eyed
Have you met her? Have you seen her?
The galaxy child?
She is starry eyed

You are starry eyed
You are starry eyed
Has anyone ever told you you’re a child of the sky?
You are starry eyed
