Beautiful Home By Fjer The door cracks every time you get in And the floor has disappeared Looks like the storm took everything But you already gave it all up The story is still untold And I wonder how it got this far Since you left You lived in such a beautiful home Now I wonder if I ever should have come there You lived in such a beautiful home Now it's all gone You cried for several days When you put it up for sale Now someone else is gonna live here And your regrets are standing in line It’s too late to realize your mistakes It’s too late to realize your mistakes Mistakes you made You lived in such a beautiful home Now I wonder if I ever should have come there You lived in such a beautiful home Now it's all gone ©2014 Fjer Music

Floors By Fjer Traumatic, erratic Stomping on my old hardwood floors Voices and choices That are made in agony and doubt Winter and splinters In my feet as I try to run D-minor and fire In the fireplace you build last year You set fire to my floors Traumatic, erratic Stomping on my old hardwood floors Fighting and dividing All the photographs we did collect In cities and buildings we’ve seen Now the memories are covered in gasoline You set fire to my floors Save me from this place we call our home ©2014 Fjer Music

Fjer - "Children" Years after riding the roller coaster that was you and me I still sometimes look back and I see the child in me. A woman in love with a child Like day and night - the sun is bound to go down You pushed me in the lake, you made me scream In the bitter end, I will drown. Like children on a playground, We run around. Run around. To do it all again. Deep down in the core of me, I can still feel the pain. Do you remember when I fell - tall as I was? Broke my hand and bent my ribs. They have been crooked ever since. A woman in love with a child Like day and night - the sun is bound to go down You pushed me in the lake, you made me scream In the bitter end, I will drown. Like children on a playground, We run around. Run around. To do it all again. ©2014 Fjer Music

Stairs By Fjer He climbs the stairs when I'm not there Forcing my heartbeat to race My hands get clammy and my grip is getting tighter One year of my life slips away when I worry He reached the top of the stairs when I didn’t look I get so flustered when I watch I try my hardest not to budge But just the thought of me without him hurts my heart I tried my best to make him stay I even tripped him down the stairs But his imagination still runs wild to this day I get so scared that he might find His way into my mind So I must build these stairs to keep him from ever getting there Don’t walk here anymore No, don’t climb these stairs Don’t go there Don’t walk here anymore No, don’t climb these stairs To nowhere It took me years to get to here And I won’t walk backwards again I might fall down the stairs and then be forced to stay there It’s time I faced the music Not rely on my amusement Used to be my life in tune And I could choose it Before he used it The sound of breaking down the stairs is bound to fill my ears Sooner or later So I’ll just wait there ©2014 Fjer Music

Roof By Fjer Another night upon the roof It’s where I’m seeking solitude (I) know every tile and every dint And all the sins that lie within The roof has always been the lid Holding our sins and secrets Inside the pot that is our home Containing everything we own The air is cold and crystal clear The frost is melting into tears This view was everything to me More than the eye could ever see Now I am wondering why I’m here Doubting myself with every tear I want to know what I can be (But) It’s more than I could ever see The roof was where I saw it all I’m never gonna take the fall ©2014 Fjer Music

about

Shortly before the release of 2013’s A New Start, Fjer was boarding in a Brooklyn brownstone owned by a 90-year old woman. It was there that she became inspired to build a floor by floor portrait of a home and the stories of chaos, love and loss contained within the walls.

Beyond producing her own work, Fjer further sets herself apart from her electro-soul contemporaries by building the foundation of the record atop emotive piano & string ballads to go with the booming retro-flavored 808s and modern chill-wave soundscapes. Sampling a plethora of household sounds and noises, Beautiful Home draws you into its atmospheric narrative the second you press play. The artistic growth on display from her first release is fully on display here.
