about

I met Jay Pinto through a Brett Perkins songwriters retreat in 2017 where we started working together and became friends. Two years later he suggested me to come and produce my songs in his studio. I sent him 17 of my best songs in order to choose what I thought would be just an EP of 4 or 5 songs. He liked them all so much he suggested we go for a full album of 10 songs and then prepared the rest for next year. So dear listener if you want to hear more music from me please support me and buy my music.

about

Bibi Copenhagen, Denmark

I've been writing lyrics since 2011, as a form of therapeutic writing, and I discovered that words come to me naturally.
Growing up, I was very fond of music and theatre. Adult life, however, took me in another direction - until I felt the urge to write.
So here I am, in the midst of adult life, rediscovering my passion for music and pursuing a childhood dream that I imagined to be long gone.

Track Name: A Woman Knows
A Woman Knows


Do you see the sunrise in the morning sky?
Do you see the two birds in the nest up high?
Time makes every living thing start blooming
And your time is soon to come

Are you having feelings you don’t understand?
Is there a boy who wants to hold your hand?
You only know if he will be a good one
If you look into his eyes

Don’t be scared, I’ll be there if your heart gets stolen
Just be brave, it’s okay - to leave yourself wide open
A woman knows, a woman knows

Do you feel a sparkle warming up your soul?
Never move too fast but - never move too slow
Love is giving as well as receiving
It’s a bridge that’s tread by both

Don’t be scared, I’ll be there if your heart gets stolen
Just be brave, it’s okay - to leave yourself wide open
A woman knows, a woman knows

It may feel like it’s all too much, but…
This little change doesn’t change us

Don’t be scared, I’ll be there if your heart gets stolen
Just be brave, it’s okay - to leave yourself wide open
A woman knows, a woman knows
Track Name: Any Man
Any Man


Dear 'any man'
I really, really like you
You are sweet, you are fun
you are smart and you are young

You’re just my kind of guy
We have so much fun you and I
We laugh, are you joking?
Talk and sex are just smoking

You’ve been around a few times knocking on my door
But every time you leave you always say to me

You’re a damn fine woman
You can have any man you want
But it ain’t gonna be me
No, it just ain’t gonna be me

Dear 'any man'
I know you mean well
But I can’t help to curse you
always kill my oxytocin

Dear 'any man'
I wonder if I can
stop to find you so attractive
No, I have to be more selective

You’ve been around a few times knocking on my door
But every time you leave you always say to me

You’re a damn fine woman
You can have any man you want
But it ain’t gonna be me
No, it just ain’t gonna be me
Track Name: Keep me Dreaming
Keep Me Dreaming


I miss you baby you are hard to forget
You keep me hoping that you’ll call with regret
But all you care to say is that you’ve had a nice day
How can I use that - anyway?

I know that I am someone you take for granted
For you to call on whenever it is handy
Meanwhile I am alone holding a wishing bone
I wish I could shove it up - you know

I told you stay away so I can find another day
Oh how can you be so cruel to keep me dreaming of you
Oh how can you be so cruel to keep me… dreaming of you

I need to move on and find a new tomorrow
Forget about you and all my grief and sorrow
I want to fall in love again, I try to flirt with new men
But then you call me - again

You don’t get it - what it is I’m missing
How hard I struggle without you here to kiss me
But you don’t want me, I am “not your kind”
So here’s a piece of - my mind

I told you stay away so I can find another day
Oh how can you be so cruel to keep me… dreaming of you

I told you stay away so I can find another day
Oh how can you be so cruel to keep me dreaming of you
Oh how can you be so cruel to keep me… dreaming of you
Track Name: What are you doing in my dream?
What Are You Doing In My Dream?


What are you doing in my dream?
You are so not - who I’m looking for
Maybe you saw that and now you scheme - to intrigue me
But baby know that I want so much more

What are you doing in my dream?
I thought to myself - just try to ignore
Maybe you laugh at my meme, the one I swear by
And baby I swear I want so much more

More like Viggo Mortensen
A little Daniel Craig
Less like Rowan Atkinson
What are you doing in my head?

What are you doing in my dream
You are not hot - not the one I’m wishing for
Maybe you think that I’m your little “cream” - but I AM queen
Baby know that I’m worth so much more

More like Scarlett Johansen
More like Eva Green
Not like Marilyn Manson
He gives me the creeps

What are you doing in my dream?
What are you doing in my dream?
What are you doing in my dream?
Track Name: Lingerie
Lingerie


Wouldn’t you like to see my lingerie
Black lace stockings, come on over and play
Boas, feathers and high heeled shoes
There’s so much we can choose
Don’t think hard, what have you got to lose?

Sit right her while I pour some wine
Kick off your shoes, I’ll loosen up your tie
Wrap this rope around your arms
Trust me I will do no harm
Baby tonight, I’m your good luck charm

We’re just playing a little game
Don’t you worry ‘bout a little restraint
Wait til you see what I’m gonna do
Baby I’ve got more tricks for you
Woo-hoo
Woo-hoo

I’ve got you right where I want you to be
So excited - baby you’re pleasing me
Few more things that I want to do
A blindfold and a gag on you
Now I’m ready to play - how about you?

Just one thing to let you know
Hate to leave you hanging but I have to go
Thank you for your wallet and keys
Gonna take your red Ferrari and leave
Woo-hoo
Woo-hoo
Woo-hoo
Woo-hoo
Track Name: Saqqara
Saqqara


My name is Saqqara, you don’t know me yet
But I can assure you’ll never forget
My winking eye and teasing smile only for you
A time to remember if you’re a big spender

You’ll find me at night, where the lanterns are dim
You’ll se me dancing, you’ll hear me sing
If you want to spend some time you’ll buy me a drink
I’ll show you a good time - with kisses and sweet wine

This place is a heaven for all men like you
Here you can gamble, buy sugar and booze
All the girls will pamper you if you want to play
Come on now old chap - and loosen up my boot strap

If you try to cheat me and sneak out the back
You’ll have to deal with Fat Sam and Jack
They will make you understand you have to go back
And pay for your singer - or you’ll lose a finger

My name is Saqqara, do you know me yet?
All that you know you soon will regret
Love and lust and happiness will end in despair
And before you know it, you’ll be ripped off and ruined
Track Name: When you love someone
When You Love Someone


What is it that you don’t hear
when I am totally clear?
Why can’t you say it’s okay?
Why do you stand in my way?

Why can’t you just let it be?
When did you stop trusting me?
The way you act isn’t fair
it’s like you don’t even care

We’re always fighting like this
just think about all that we missed
Instead we just add to the list
stop taking sides

And every time we’re apart
I feel like I’m lost in the dark
The truth is what’s here in my heart
and it don’t lie

Cause when it it all is said and done
It’s worth it all when you love someone
In the still of night, in the setting sun
The best in life is when you love someone

I see the look in your eyes
I feel the hurt of your lies
The things I said to your face
I wish that I could erase

The gap between us is deep
as I watch you in your sleep
I want to hold you again
I want us to make amends

I know a time we were close
now I am just ready to fold
So, why are you being so cold?
We used to shine

I liked when our love was new
and all I could think of was you
What is it that you’ll have me do?
Give me a sign

Cause when it it all is said and done
It’s worth it all when you love someone
In the still of night, in the setting sun
The best in life is when you love someone
Is when you love someone
Is when you love someone
Track Name: Solemn Refrain
Solemn Refrain


I still remember when you were here
You loved me and held me so dear
I picked and I prodded, I pushed you away
Looking back it all seems so clear
Laughter and longing
Cut through my pain
Haunting impressions
This solemn refrain
Oooooh, ooooh…….

Misty and foggy, there’s a cloud on my face
And a pain that my heart can’t erase
Left and unloved I cry lonely tears
But I put myself in this place
Laughter and longing
Cut through my pain
Haunting impressions
This solemn refrain
Oooooh, ooooh…….

I want to feel hopeful
Be free and rejoice
I want to feel love again
But this is what comes from my voice
Oooooh, ooooh…….
Track Name: Ode to Inisheer
Ode To Inisheer


Wind is swirling in a cup
The ferry’s sailing round
A cow takes two steps to get up
and four steps to get down

Waves wash the shoreline
like chisels in the stone
A wreck has crashed the coastline
A dolphin swims alone

Walking, walking
Mile after mile
Walking, walking
The isle of Inisheer

A little dog is following
he never leaves my side
to the castles on the hilltop
that O’Brien’s but with pride

Walking, walking
Mile after mile
Walking, walking
The isle of Inisheer

Ooooo - I feel alive
In this paradise

Walking, walking
Mile after mile
Walking, walking
The isle of Inisheer
