Tracklist1. Their Eyes Meet
Singer & Songwriter Leonie Tielemans brengt haar debuut EP ‘Stillness’. Een verzameling van haar liedjes waarbij de genres singer-songwriter en jazz in elkaar overvloeien.
“Stillness” gaat over het vinden van rust in jezelf. De rode draad die door de cd loopt is het vinden van een plek waar je tot jezelf kunt komen. Waar je kunt ontsnappen aan de drukte van de stad en de verwachtingen van het dagelijks leven. De mooie natuur en de liefde zijn daarbij belangrijke inspiratiebronnen. Alle nummers dragen op hun eigen manier bij aan de boodschap die Leonie wil overbrengen.
Leonie zorgt ervoor dat haar publiek bij het beluisteren van de cd of het bijwonen van een concert, een klein beetje ‘Stillness’ in zichzelf kan vinden. Als een moment van rust en bezinning.

Their Eyes Meet Tall, muscular arms and chest/Smokey dark room, forget about the rest/A few strings of hair peak through his V-neck/The sun is gone, won’t take long before it’s back//Tall, skinny arms and face/‘Sittin’ on the dock of the bay’ fills the place/Curly, black hair and a jacket in dark grey/The noisy sound softly fades away//Their eyes meet, their eyes meet, their eyes meet, and a smile confirms their need//Time flies by and Johnnie Walker keeps walking/Laughter all along, until they stop talking/Silence covers the night, with only two hearts beating/They come closer and feel each others breathing//Their eyes meet, their hands meet, their cheeks meet, in a dance that feels so sweet//Their lips meet, their lips meet, their lips meet, in a dance that tastes so sweet.
City Life The hastiness around me makes it hard for me to see/The clock is ticking on and doesn’t leave any time for me/Everyone around me rushing only for themselves/Time is passing by too fast for me to keep up//People around me make it hard for me to see/Finding a place for me, though its crowded around me/Hundred pairs of eyes passing me by every day/Trying to find one special pair of eyes//Free of the danger signs, reading between the lines/Free of the sleepless nights, hiding behind the heights/Free of the nine-to-five, waiting to come alive/Getting away from here, a place to disappear//Suddenly I see, this world I’m living in, is not the place where I can find the peace I’m looking for/ Now I know for sure, that I will start a search in finding an answer to this limiting view//Free of the danger signs, reading between the lines/Free of the sleepless nights, hiding behind the heights/Free of the nine-to-five, waiting to come alive/Getting away from here, a place to disappear//A place where I can find the stillness in myself/A place where I can be a child again.
Bird Ballet An early start of the day, my eyes open slowly/The sun welcomes us in May, it’s been a while lately/The sun invites us to stay and dance a little longer, until we all find our way in looking at life a little lighter//I feel like flying//We’re dancing like a bird ballet/Moving to the rhythm of the play/We’re dancing in the light of this day/Filling the sky and singing hey//The sun colors all I see/The world is showing its nature/The sent of spring fills me, with the beauty of every flower/Birds awaken from their sleep, greeting each other with their sound/They let us hear their songs for free/Show this smile I found//Fill my eyes with the light of the sun/Fill my ears with the sound of the drum/Fill my soul with the touch of this dance/Fill my heart with your love.
Breaking Out Soaring from up above, looking down on all that makes the ground shiver constantly, from my mistakes/From here a better view, have to lift my feet up so that Is see what’s underneath, from my mistakes//Now I realize that I can fly, letting go to finally be free//Breaking out from earthly ways, no more boundaries of yesterdays//Trapped in the sand below, couldn’t find a way to pull myself from the mess I made, by my mistakes//Now I realize that I can fly, letting go to finally be free//Breaking out from earthly ways/No more boundaries of yesterdays.
Left Me Waiting You left me waiting, you told me you’d come back and do the things you used to do to me/Promising me: ” babe, we’ll be together, you’re my everything and more”/You left me hanging, I’m waiting and hoping and craving and praying/Lying in bed, dreaming about the days I could turn around and see your face//Well here I am, sitting on the ground/Here I am, waiting to be found//We started fighting, first it was ok, but then we screamed everyday/Hiding behind the cries and all the lies, while my spite intensifies/I started hating, trying to find another way to make you stay/Saying to you: “baby, I know that we can make ik through”//Well here I am, sitting on the ground/Here I am, waiting to be found/Are you with her now?
Mountainsong Water like a silver thread, finding its way down/Creeks carve trails ahead//Staring down, it never ends, never ends//Blue lakes, graceful in the sand, breaking down the rough land//Staring down, it never ends, never ends//It shows how little we are, shows how little we are//Great heights, like you’ve never seen/Above the clouds, stately like a queen//Clouds are slowly closing in, misty skies take my view away, all I see now is white and grey, when it fades, my heart will shine, staring down, it never ends//It shows how little we are, shows how little we are.
