about

"Everything Gives to Something Else" is the third album by Caro C (was caro snatch). This new collection carries the themes of inter-connection and compassion - part of my aim to be part of the solution not the...

"Everythiing Gives to Something Else" sees Caro singing more and playing simple Satie-esque piano with her more signatory emotive electronic soundtrack, wonderful guest musicians and quirky found sounds - listen out for a hot pan sizzling under cold water and squash balls for a clicky kick drum.

Please listen with decent headphones or speakers to get the full picture of this lovingly crafted music!

Track Name: Heartmind Preylude
You found your pearl, unfurl.
Track Name: Clumsy Conclusions
Let's step into the big big picture
with it's vast vast vista
tuned into the heart
of what really matters

that big big picture
with its vast vast vista
with ample scarcity
and copious compassion

trust
and transcend
if we trust (your biggest self)
we’ll transcend those

clumsy conclusions
that trip up your life
them clumsy conclusions
trip up your mind

that big big picture
with it's vast vast vista
plugged into the heart

we share the air
with those we could have been
trust your biggest self
and transcend those..

clumsy conclusions

that trip up your life
them clumsy conclusions
that trip up your mind

your biggest trust
for your richest life
Track Name: Trust
We’ve got to trust
one another again
in some essentials
at least
we’ve got to trust.

A bigger trust,
a trust of the sun
that does not bother
with moth and rust,
bigger trust
So much bigger
We see it shining
in one another.

If it warms
your heart’s quick core
why then trust it, it forms
one faithfulness more.

And be, oh be
a sun to me,
not a weary, insistent
personality

And I’ll be, oh be
a sun to you,
not a weary, insistent
personality

A sun that shines
goes dark, but shines
again and entwines
with the sunshine in me
We see it shining in one another..
Track Name: Kindness
It warms you up
it softens you
it's noticing the little things
be quiet and listen to someone else
be quiet and listen
allow me to be myself
allow me to be

it's totally essential
towards yourself and obviously towards everybody else
just being able to connect with someone else
and that shared recognition

one of the kindest things
lots and lots of kind things
you have to notice the other
life is too harsh without kindness
especially from strangers

She took the chain off her neck
and she gave it to me and she said
I just hope that this brings you the same luck it has brought me
He offered and bought me a one way ticket to come here
Not being frightened of difficult things
difficult feelings, difficult art

I was really struggling
smiling at me in the street at the right moment
just one of the most selfless things really

Actually, I am fantastic
But on my own I'm not that fantastic
I'm more fantastic when I'm relating to another
such a demonstration of care actually

Everything gives to something else
when I allow me to be myself
Everything gives to something else
that's just how it works.
Track Name: Crazy Wonderful
Crazy wonderful

Crazy wonderful-ness mess

Don't you think it's stranger than fiction?

be is blessing or malediction

stranger than fiction

don't u think?

don't u think??

Welcome to this moment

and this one

and this one..
Track Name: Disconnected Daze
When your phone can't get signal
and the wi-fi's gone awry
the broadband's interrupted
feel adrift, unmissed

U just can't trust
u just can't see
u just can't wield all the love that yields
for you

See-saw it will flow
just as sure as u grow
waxing and waning
the oh so human woe

U just can't trust
today u just can't see
u just can't wield all the love that yields for you

just can trust
just can see
just might wield all the love
all the love all the love

See it's not just that you are thoroughly loveable
loving and so loved
for you are love itself my dear
you are love itself

Did you forget that you are love?
Darn it, I forgot that I am love.
Track Name: Mammoth Mountain Live 2016
I am mammoth mountain
my ravishing ravines
sculpted by glacial tears.
Ice caps pin-pointed
the oceans can breathe
the sky, the skies
it clears.

Feed from me
bask in me
bathe in me
rest on me
you’ve been needing this
for years.

Breathe with me
Come with me
Smile with me
sleep deep on me
and we can sleep
for years.

I am mammoth black mountain
my treasured trees
nestle beneath my skin
the leaves fill their veins
the fruits plump and sweet,
needles to say
my juices are the sheen.

I…I…I…
I love you
because I love me
I can love you
as I learn to love me
(I can merely learn to love me)

Breathe with me
come with me
smile with me
sleep deep on me
and we can sleep for years.

Glean all you need
from my marvellous minerals
your burdened seed
insignificant to bear.

Is greed not merely a hanker
a need unable to feed?
Go ahead, snatch a rock for your pocket
rocket your pocket
harbour me in your palm.

For I am always in you
I can always be in you
you shall never, never
tire my balm.

Ready steady
you don’t have to go.
Ready steady
glow.
