I Can’t Sleep……

Clarabelle Quotes, Listen to the sound of my heart

Excitement

I can’t sleep with excitement, yes, exactly, NOT worry, pure 100% EXCITEMENT because I am making massive progress towards my childhood dreams of becoming a successful Singer/Songwriter.

In this post I would like to share with you a full SAMPLE music track of my original song “In Time We Heal” that I wrote this year.  I created the lyrics and the melody and Gary Stitt from Canada has arranged and is playing the piano backing track.  Gary is also singing the vocals in this sample and I think he did an amazing job here.

I will be in the recording studio in mid-December to create the final masterpiece and then it’s all systems go, just you try and stop me world hahahah 🙂

Below (highlighted in red) is the SoundCloud link to hear the track, I do hope you like it and please let me know what you think, the words are special, the lyrics are precious, they come from my heart and soul…..hence the title “In Time We Heal” by Clarabelle.

C’mon You, Let’s Go!!

Motivational 

As you know I have been writing a lot of my own songs recently and the first few that I wrote about were love songs and then I went through a phase of writing some more motivational songs.  This next song that I share with you below is one of the more motivational songs, it is called “C’mon You”.  For those of you who are not familiar with the Scottish banter, “C’mon” means “come on” and in this song it really means “lift yourself up and get a move on, get back in the game”.  I hope you like it.  So wherever you are today and whatever you are doing I hope you make it a “C’mon You” day.  Lots of love to you Clarabelle.

Here are the lyrics for you, so you can sing along if you wish  🙂

C’mon You by Claire Marie Murray 22.07.13

Verse 1

Let me tell you a story
Life may beat you down
But you don’t have to take no more
Just let your spirit shine
Believe in your passion
You can have it all
Show a little compassion
Break down the tough brick wall

Chorus

So C’mon, you can do it
C’mon, this I know
C’mon, yesterday’s over
Oh C’mon you, let’s go

Verse 2

So now I’ve shared my journey
Go and live and your life
Time it will not wait for you
You won’t be living twice
Know that you can do it
You can achieve it all
Hard work will get you through it
Soon you’ll be standing tall

Chorus

So C’mon, you can do it
C’mon, this I know
C’mon, yesterday’s over
Oh C’mon you, let’s go

Bridge

C’mon life aint gonna wait for you
Get back up – you can do
All you put your mind to
When you feel pain, see it through

Chorus (to fade)

So C’mon, you can do it
C’mon, this I know
C’mon, yesterday’s over
Oh C’mon you, let’s go (repeat to fade)

I Am The Greatest

Greatest Songwriter

Just Believe

Sometimes you just have to believe that YOU are the greatest, you have to believe in yourself, you have to believe in your abilities, you have to believe that you are capable of achieving so much more.  You have so much potential, there is so much more of you to unleash, so much more of you to share with the world.  Now I want you to hold onto that thought and I want you to flip an imaginary switch and when you do, you 100% believe in you, now watch what you are doing, look at who you are talking to, What changes are you making in your life? What are you doing differently?  Just believe, just believe, just believe in YOU.  I wrote the lyrics, “I Am The Greatest” (see below) last month because I was strongly visualising myself being the greatest songwriter of all time and then I wrote it down (picture above).

Vision

I believe, I have faith in the unknown and I know the Universe is working in my favour and bringing it to me.  I made the decision, I made the commitment and I acted upon it, I now treasure every person and thing that I attract into my life that moves me closer to my vision.

YOU

Now I want you to believe in you, believe in it all, believe and have faith in the mystery of the unknown, that once you commit to doing something, once you commit to achieving that goal, it’s going to happen for you, sooner or later it is going to happen for you.  You are the greatest and I want you to believe that.

Below are the lyrics to my song, “I Am The Greatest”, this will be released as part of my Album, “The Becoming of Me”, I think the melody that goes with this song is really great, it is really uplifting and empowering, definitely a song to be listened to first thing in the morning or when you are feeling down and want a little boost, the song will definitely do that for you.

“I Am The Greatest” by Clarabelle created on 22 July 2013

Verse 1

You’ve gotta put the hard work in
And let your mind know
In order to catch the falling star
You’ve gotta move and go
Time it will not wait for you
Life moves very fast
So step it up, get going
Live it up, get showing
Say  I Am

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why

Verse 2

Times are tough I know sometimes
Keep going until the end
To reach the top you have to go
Be real do not pretend
You can be the champion
You can have it all
So live it up, get moving
Play the game, get grooving
Say  I Am

Bridge

I feel my heart
I feel my soul
In changing moments
This I know

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why
This is why
I will fly

I want you to fly today, I’ll be watching you, love Clarabelle

Life Purpose

I have been sharing on this blog that I am currently making a career transition to Singer/Songwriter.  Since May 2013 I have been writing songs that are inspired by my true experiences, creating lyrics and melodies that make a real connection with me and hopefully with you the listener.  I have written 22 songs in that short period of time because I know this is my life purpose (including my poetry) and it feels very right to me.

In Time We Heal

Today I want to share with you one of my favorites songs that I wrote on 26 July 2013, it is called “In Time We Heal“.  The song is about self healing after a period of struggle and pain and I can truly say that I am healed from my own situation.  Below is the Soundcloud link and lyrics to it so you can sing a long if you wish.  🙂

Here is the Soundcloud link:  In Time We Heal by Clarabelle

Gigs

I have had various meetings with people in the music industry to help me with the backing tracks for all the songs and I will then perform gigs starting in Scotland and then branching out all over.  I would really love to come to your hometown/city so please let me know if you would like me to come along and do a gig for you.  I am also creating an Album entitled “The Becoming of Me” which will contain 13 of the best tracks for you to listen to.

Below are the lyrics:

In Time We Heal

Verse 1

Troubled times
Lost my mind
Feeling lonely
From afar
I see that star
One and only
Take me to the top
Never let me stop
Let me go

Chorus

Because in time we heal
And soon the battle’s over
Over again
And the sun shines within
Soon the rain storm is over
over and we win

Verse 2

Drinking wine
Can feel divine
When you’re lonely
Bitter sweet
It’s no real treat
When you phone me
Take me to the light
In the darkest night
Let me glow

Chorus

Because in time we heal
And soon the battle’s over
Over again
And the sun shines within
Soon the rain storm is over
over and we win

Bridge

And we win
Oh yes we win
And we win
Oh yes we win
Yes we win
Oh yes win
And we win
Oh yes win

Chorus (to fade)

Because in time we heal
And soon the battle’s over
Over again
And the sun shines within
Soon the rain storm is over
over and we win
And we win
Oh yes we win

 Copyright Clarabelle 26 July 2013

Remember that your sun shines from within, soon the rain storm is over and you win.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Yes You Can Because You Are The Key

Life is too short to wait

Today I have been in creative mode, I have written two inspirational songs so far and I am very pleased with the outcome.  The songs are entitled “YES YOU CAN” and “YOU ARE THE KEY”, once I have had my songs registered with BMI and recorded on YouTube I will share them with you on this blog.

I am excited to share these songs because I believe that if you are having a tough day and you then listen to these songs, I am hoping the lyrics will connect with you in some way and uplift your spirits.  We all need a little morale boost now and again and I feel the essence of these two songs is all about that.

Make today be a “YES YOU CAN” day for you because “YOU ARE THE KEY” to turning your life around for the better.

Wishing you a day filled with happiness and joy, love Clarabelle.

Together

Here is another song I created recently, it is entitled “Together” and it is about meeting the right partner and falling in love.

I LOVE, love, I always have and always will.  I think this would make a really good wedding song for the happy couple on their special day.  I hope you enjoy the lyrics and melody I created.  Below is the YouTube video of me singing the song and I have also included the lyrics of the song below, thank you so much for listening, I am very grateful indeed.  Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle.

Together

Verse 1:

When love comes your way
Be open
When sparks lift your heart
like lightning
Release your spirit
Shine today
Love forever
Hear for me say

Chorus:

Let the Church bells ring for us
Together we’re in love
Let the music play our tune
Together, we’ll be soon
Let your heart, entwine with mine
As one we are divine
Let your smile give warmth to me
Together, we will be

 Verse 2:

When your heart sings with joy
Be happy
When the sun shines on you
Its energy
Free your spirit
Glow today
Bloom forever
Hear me say

Chorus:

Let the Church bells ring for us
Together we’re in love
Let the music play our tune
Together, we’ll be soon
Let your heart, entwine with mine
As one we are divine
Let your smile give warmth to me
Together, we will be

Bridge:

Happy, Happy
Together in love
Knowing, showing
Smiles from above
Happy, Happy
Together in love
Knowing, showing
Smiles from above

Chorus: (to fade)

Let the Church bells ring for us
Together we’re in love
Let the music play our tune
Together, we’ll be soon
Let your heart, entwine with mine
As one we are divine
Let your smile give warmth to me
Together, we will be

Put Your Energy Out There!!

put your energy out there

You may remember a few weeks back I blog posted for the very first time a YouTube video of me singing one of my original songs “I Am Here”.

This has been a dream of mine since I was a child to be a successful songwriter but I never did anything about it until now…..over 30 years later!!  I have a strong inner belief in my creative talents so I just started writing to different music production and publishing companies to get their feedback on my lyrics/songs.  I am so excited because I received some really positive feedback this evening from a company in Nashville who I wrote to no less than 24 hours ago, here is what they said about my song:

Claire,

I hope you’re having a good day. I’ve had a chance to review your lyric, “I Am Here”. Please see review below.

“I Am Here”: You have good rhyme through out the lyric which creates good rhythm which makes the song flow well. You have good imagery and description as you use your words to paint the scenes and bring the song to life. You’ve captured and expressed the emotions well as you can feel the love, hope, strength, longing, wonder etc… This is important b/c emotion is how people connect with music. The subject matter is strong as well as the length, song structure and verse/chorus format.

“I Am Here” is a lyric we’d be interested in working with you on. 

The reason I am sharing this with you is because I want to use myself as a real life, in the moment, example.  I want YOU to never let go of your childhood dreams, believe in your abilities and talents and put your energy out there……the Universe WILL respond, believe that, I am living proof of that.

Now, I have no idea what will happen with my songwriting career going forward, but all I know now, is that this has truly inspired me to keep going and going and going and going.  By me putting my energy out there and getting that response this evening, it has given me even more motivation, drive and enthusiasm to carry on and make it happen for myself.  I will absolutely keep you posted on developments.

Remember, YOU are a miracle already, YOU have the magic inside of you to dream big but also to turn that dream into a reality…..PUT YOUR ENERGY OUT THERE!!

Much love to you as always, follow your dreams that you hold in your heart, Clarabelle.

I Am Here

Being Brave

This is a breakthrough day for me today, a day where I put my energy and heart out there to the world.  I say this because I am being brave and courageous and putting myself out there to the Universe in a different way.  I am sharing with you one of the songs I wrote recently for my new Album called “The Becoming of Me”.  This is the first time I have ever sang on video with the intent to demonstrate the power and unfolding of making my dreams come true.  This passion has indeed been locked inside of me for over 30 years and now I am embracing the moment and creating opportunities for myself.  I have no idea where this may lead to, all I know is that it feels right to share with you today.

TRACK 1:  “I AM HERE”  

This song is about the loss of a loved one (my father) and also about having a loved one who lives very far away from you, like in a long distance relationship or family living “Across the Miles”.  It tells the heartfelt story of the strong innner desire to have them so close to you, in that very moment, imagining them so close that they are actually there, then feeling the heartbreak of the reality that they are not there and are never coming back or will not be back for a long time.

Here is the YouTube video of me singing the song in acapella, I do hope you like it.

Here are the song lyrics:

Verse 1

The night is cold tonight
I feel you here
And I just want you now
I want you near
But you are far away
From me
My heart is silenced now
It’s history

 Chorus

And I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

Verse 2

The starry sky so bright
Watches me
I feel your presence here
Let this be
You may be far away
From me
My heart is open now
Set me free

Chorus

So I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

 Encore

I once had hope
That I held you
Tight in my arms
Loving you
I see your smile
I see your eyes
Loving me
Beyond the skies

Chorus

And I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

Copyright, Claire Marie Murray, a.k.a. Clarabelle, May 2013

I would really love to hear what you think of the song and lyrics, it will help me develop into the Artist that I am becoming.

I truly thank you for listening and may you be brave and courageous today, wherever you are in the world.

Much love to you, as always, Clarabelle

This Love For You

Sometimes our hidden love for another is so deep, it silently creeps to the surface and rocks our world forever.  To ignore this calling would surely haunt the heart for an eternity. Love is often mistaken as a feeling but love is a doing word, to receive love you have to give love..so go on ‘Just Do Love’ and fill your life with the richness it truly deserves.  This next poem is all about being brave and opening the door to love.

 This love for you, torments my core

I hear it’s knock, upon my door

Do I answer, say hello?

Or keep it hidden, deep below

It hurts sometimes, the emotions are strong

Is this the place, where I belong?

It stops and starts, but the engine has fuel

Do I give out my heart and let love rule?

To be honest, this feels dangerous for me

The fear is greater than to let this love be

But to not let love in, would feel heavy on my heart

Seeing you walk off, feeling sad as you depart

So I’ll be brave, let courage win

I’ll share with you my soul and let love in

Sister Dear Sister

Often we go through life and we forget how influential our closest family members have been in our life.  This poem is a heartfelt sentiment to my wonderful and beautiful younger sister,who through the highs and lows of my life has always been there for me.  Thank you Leanne, you are so very special to me, more than you’ll ever know.

When we were young sis, we always used to fight

Early in the morning and mostly every night

I didn’t really appreciate back then, the special person in you

I now recognise that failing, so evident and true

But as we got older, I changed my poor sisterly ways

You became a best friend and we went on holidays

I love you my dear sister, you are so special to me

More than you’ll ever know, more than I let you see

I always feel so happy, when you are around

You cheer up the room, lots of laughter is your sound

And always when I need you, to my door you come a knocking

There with open arms and then we do some talking

You laugh at your own jokes and I find that very funny

Your spirit is so alive and your attitude is always sunny

Sister dear sister, you’ve made my life so great

I couldn’t ask for a better sister, 10 out of 10 you rate

I smile when I think of that rainbow

Good morning from beautifully sunny Bonny Scotland.  I am really feeling the benefits of de-cluttering my house, I feel the air is lighter and the energy is flowing much more freely around me.  Another benefit of having a ‘clear out’, is that I am coming across more song and poetry writings from years ago, I found some more last night.  Until now, I have only ever shared poetry on this blog but I also write songs and thought I would share with you the lyrics from this song I wrote almost 20 years ago.  The song is entitled, “I smile when I think of that rainbow” – may your day today be filled with all the colours of the rainbow.  Lots of love Clarabelle

rainbow

I smile when I think of that rainbow (Song Lyrics)

Verse 1:  Shine a light, on the world around you,

See the shadows of life, appear every time.

Some are dark, and mysterious to others,

But they don’t see the inside, only the outline.

I have a vision, beyond empty detail,

Created from, these shadows alone.

They are pictured, in my mind full of memories,

Collected from past years, of my own.

Chorus:  I smile, when I think of that rainbow,

Arching over, all the good times I’ve had.

Protecting me, from the raindrops that have fallen,

Whenever happy, turns into sad.

Verse 2:  Tough experiences, can make you feel blind,

Because you can’t see the pictures, to understand.

Broken images, that don’t have no meaning,

They, are drawn from the wrong hand.

Paint a bright picture, to lighten up your life,

One that reflects, the most happiest times.

Open your eyes, and look past the heartache,

and listen, dull silence turns to bright chimes.

Chorus:  I smile, when I think of that rainbow,

Arching over, all the good times I’ve had.

Protecting me, from the raindrops that have fallen,

Whenever happy, turns in to sad.

Addition:  I want to, lift my head up,

And see, the rainbow above.

Lighting my heart, whenever it’s hollow,

The feeling I have, when I’m in love.

Chorus:  I smile, when I think of that rainbow,

Arching over, all the good times I’ve had.

Protecting me, from the raindrops that have fallen,

Whenever happy, turns in to sad.

Creativity Flows

Imagination is the highest kite that one can fly.  Being in creative flow is a magical experience that we all have the power to achieve.  This next poem is inspired by the creativity within us all – unleash your human potential today.

Creativity Flows

Swinging from the clouds so high

Dancing with stars, in the midnight sky

Feel the fresh air, upon your face

Worries banish, without a trace

Imagination brings, wonderful things

Lost in its beauty, the sweet angel sings

Creativity flows and my soul is at one

The mind is free and the feeling is fun

The inner voice is calling, pen to paper I go

Writing true words, row after row

The meaning is heartfelt and empowering for you

Express yourself greatly and happiness shines through
