about

Simple and heart-warming are these songs written in the early stages of Alexia's songwriting career.
'This Heart' is an honest and pure representation of the simple and magical approach to music and songwriting. Enjoy these remastered songs that were written and recorded between 2003-2008. Inspired by her encounters and travels throughout the world, whether about lost and found love, backpacking around India, meditating in a garden or sitting on a tropical beach; each tune has a charm in itself. Half Mauritian, half Cypriot and born in England, Alexia sings in a cocktail of styles and languages and thus her sound is both unique and uplifting.

Pours open with pure pure love Like the warm sun from above Always growing and flowing yeh
We're floating in the sweet sweet thing

Like a soft and tender loving kiss Full in all so as not to miss Everything everything and all of this

Dances in gentle ecstasy
Fully feeling and being free

Track Name: Over You
Here I sit all alone and I wonder where you roam Do you sit all alone or are you talking on the phone How about we sit alone, together one more time?
And I know I should be over you by now And oh, if I could
I'd hold you and show you how much
I love you babe
I've been doing many things like meditating
On the now and the breathe, on life and on death And still I see your sweet face in my mind
Here we go here we go
We're rolling through the snow Dancing through the night and Like a river we flow
Here we are here we are We're sitting in a bar
Drinking through the night and We're sleeping in the car
If I could sing you one line, of this dimension of time Of the love in my heart, oh I don't know where to start We are spinning around together and miles apart Oh I just love you my dear and I wanna see you here See your face and your smile for an endless while Hold your hand, touch your hair
Look at you and stare
Till the earth meets the stars and Jupiter finds Mars
Sing a song all night long and then wonder where it's gone Be so wild like a child, like there nothing ever wrong
Kiss all day in the street, dance all night on our feet
And spin around till we fall
And that is not all
Track Name: Garden of Eden
The incense burns on the grass, I slept through my class
Where my friends are meditating, they are truly connecting
The frogs are singing over there, the birds are flying high up in the air The trees hold a fresh florescent green, so lovely to be seen
I see you in the garden of eden This truly is the garden of eden
A million thoughts are running through my mind, a million thought of every kind I let them come I let them go, coz that's not the real me you know
Free like that bird that's high up in the sky, free to do what I like
And I like to make you smile for a long long long while
The clouds roll by, the sun rays paint the sky The clouds roll by, the sun rays paint the sky The multi-colours of the earth they catch my eye I breathe deep and happily sigh
Track Name: Mountain Folk
I road for 8 hours up through the mountain curves To find a small town as, and through it ran a river The bells were singing all day long
People blessing to their song
In this land of pure delight All is loud and bright
I met a family so sweet
They were so kind to me
You know they offered me some tea At night a place to sleep
We didn't really talk
We just smiled a lot, we walked
In the high pine forest trees
And the strawberries
Mountain folk
Up the hills you go Mountain folk
With you my heart does flow
Three pretty girls and me
And all of your babies
We walked a long time to the trees Then you climbed like crazy Climbing higher up you go
Singing sweet songs like you know And the strength in you I see
I hope to have in me
Mountain girls
Up there in the trees Mountain girl
You climb with such ease
And when you come down
You pack the branches on your back Carry them for miles and miles
With a small kid sat on top
She's a girl of 17
And she had a sweet baby
Always smiled and laugh with me Like a wise old lady
Mountain girls
Up the trees you go Mountain girl
With you my heart does flow
I am amazed by your actions Your mind is in the now
Girls and boys are working hard And our senses open wide
I can see it in your eyes True wisdom no disguise And forever you will be So sweet to me
Mountain folk
Up the hills you go Mountain folk
With you my heart does flow
Track Name: The Wedding Song
And night and day and always together
I'll be with you now and forever
Into a new chapter they stay where I will
Marry your heart and your smile and your soul and your eyes
I see you there and I walk down to you Take your hand and say that
I Will Marry You
That I know
And there's a time when love becomes a mountain
And all are here to see it happen
When agabi finds his bride and together they say that I will Marry your heart and your smile and your soul and your eyes
And like a river they will grow
I believe it's true
I believe I believe I believe I believe it's true
Heavens whirl and angels fly Dressed twirl, cupids been by
Track Name: Time to Go
Isn't the moon stunning
I am longing to find a way to your heart A tree silhouette against the dark sky As the radio plays through the night
Oh, one look from you and my heart skips a beat And that is true
With a deep deep breathe it is
Time to go
Isn't it funny
How we all feel the same in such different ways on different days The pavement is set
But I am walking with the grass beneath my naked feet
Isn't it lovely
How I feel about you
Only words a little
Can say how I feel when I see you
