about

The Bedroom Witch Los Angeles, California

Cast as the misunderstood maker of the veil, the Bedroom Witch lyrically chants spells alluding to an inevitable apocalypse while embodying the creative exhaustion of isolation. Her aesthetics build on dark pop ballads, giallo-style progressions through mysterious allure and a danceable haunting that produces the nostalgic agony of Hell/Limbo theories ... more

Track Name: Tonight
tonight I'm making a list of my sacrifices and my demands
bury the notes deep into the sand
before I thought I had no say in my past
but you and I will never work
and you know I will never learn to recover with you still around

beautiful sadness, I wish you the best
you deserve all the showers that will rain when you've confessed
covered in roses, embellished lament
covered in roses, adorning resentment

tonight
the stage has been lit with your embers

covered in roses, embellished lament
covered in roses, adorn your resentment

tonight everything's changing before my very own eyes
tonight you deserve all the showers where I've left you to die
tonight

but you and I will never work
and you and I will never learn to love each other
we won't last together

tonight
and you and I will never learn to love each other
we won't last together

tonight I'm making a list of my sacrifices and my demands
(never learn, never learn)
bury the notes deep into the sand
Track Name: Limitations
precariously, i don't know how to make way
(always falling)
the petals and the leaves mark the age of your day
(always rotting)

and he spread a fire all over my land
my flesh became ash, the rest in their hands
so you can't take me more than they have
the walls made of glass
my limitations

i never knew anybody i truly needed
(always searching)
i know exactly what you mean when you say you never met
(someone like me before)
I work with my limitations in exchange for patience

it's never wise to flood the gates of a secret
(always falling)
back to the woes I keep inside of my closet
(always rotting)

and he spread a fire all over my land
my flesh became ash, the rest in their hands
and you never will understand that
I take what i can
my limitations

I've been the fuel for as long as I needed
I've been refused the chance to ever refill it
Track Name: Stop Carrying
I want to stop caring
I want to stop carrying

I am safe as long as I don't tell you what they named me
loyal to the spell
intentions that I keep rewriting over again
all over again

I give it to you

with just enough distance to look in her eyes
they're like a mirror, familiar, when I get out of the trance
echoes of futures and pasts
listening to the voices in my head that tell me
I want to stop caring
I want to stop carrying
I want to stop carrying the weight of you

sweet, sweet darling go sleep

and now it's your turn to get warm in my coat
I give it to you
I'm giving it back to you

I want to stop caring
I want to stop carrying
I want to stop carrying the weight of you

I give it to you
Track Name: See Nothing
I feel the guilt in this world, greedy with pride
we're alone in this room
so tell me what has time done?
tell me what have I done?

I'm taking a seat at an end of the table
and left the other end open for you
how do you forgive yourself for letting the dark thoughts
get you carried away with the temptation to stay there
to a point where you see nothing?
I'm getting carried away with the temptation to say
that I was wrong to think you want me

our eyes still meet wherever my mind goes
have I become the rose you picked on your way home?
(will you be there to light the candles?)
that you will set between us so I know
that I am still desirable

how do you forgive yourself for letting the dark thoughts
get you carried away with the temptation to stay there
to a point where you see nothing?
(our eyes still meet wherever my mind goes)
I'm getting carried away with the temptation to say
that I was wrong to think you want me
(have I become the rose you picked on your way home?)

you're just staring at me, I'm so tired of being patient
trying to get a reaction
(break the rules and tell me)
am I still desirable?

I'm taking a seat at an end of the table
and left the other end open for you
how do you forgive yourself for letting the dark thoughts
get you carried away with the temptation to stay there
to a point where you see nothing?
(our eyes still meet wherever my mind goes)
I'm getting carried away with the temptation to say
that I was wrong to think you want me
(have I become the rose you picked on your way home?)
Track Name: I Am the Storm
run from the storm that follows you like the galloping horses
circling around a glowing wound
did you know that I am a force?
Light as a feather
stiff as remorse
hide under covers
you're drenched in my wrath

run from the storm that calls for you
it turns all your fears into water
to translate your name into thunder
I am the storm
(your lights go off)
I am the force
(your lights go off)
that always keeps you guessing how far away
always keeps you guessing

and I would keep my head underwater
I heard that the air's been poisoned here
to give your breath to another
will calm down the currents as my skies turn clear
I'm light as a feather
stiff as remorse

run from the storm that calls for you
it turns all your fears into water
to translate your name into thunder
(your lights go off)
I am the storm
(your lights go off)
that always keeps you guessing how far away
always keeps you guessing
I'll always keep you guessing when I will destroy
always keep you guessing

run from the storm that follows you
did you know that I was the storm?
that always keeps you guessing how far away
always keeps you guessing
I'll always keep you guessing when I will destroy
always keep you guessing

I am the storm
light as a feather
stiff as remorse
Track Name: Return For Me
when will they return for me?
a beam of light sent through the streets
my skin, it crawls with urgency
curse the one who turns on me
they will take me back to see
where my home was suppose to be
when will they return for me?
curse the one who turned on me

how did I come to terms with the pores of my cultural erosion?
cause when it comes and it goes then it comes and it goes in distortions
it hurts that I have to let it go
though it's so precious to me, I am losing the language
so when will they return for me?

(comes and it goes then it comes and it goes)
it was so precious to me now I'm riddled with anguish
I have to let it go
and it's so scary to me that I am losing the language

if you were all my enemies then where was home suppose to be?
when will they return for me?
curse the one who turned on me
