lyrics

show me what’s inside your toolbox
show off all your colorful tools
dig around, find the right one to use
which one to fix this blown fuse?

‘cause everything needs a little fixing and
everything could use a little tweaking and
I could try to change it on my own
but everything heals much better with more hope

your art is a hammer
your voice a nail, so
pick a falling building where your heart cries
then root down to rise up

cause everything needs a little fixing and
everything could use a little tweaking and
I could try to change it on my own
but everything heals much better with more hope

show me your strength
let me hear your sound
be the change you want to see around

everyone’s got the skills to share
but we all got separated somewhere
I dare you to splice our wires
use your ladder reach a little higher

cause everything needs a little fixing and
everything could use a little tweaking and
I could try to change it on my own
but everything heals much better with more hope

show me your strength
let me hear your sound
be the change you want to see around

Valerie Orth New York

"There is an honesty to Valerie Orth's music that is both brilliant and heartbreaking.”

A prolific songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Valerie integrates live instruments with electronic sounds. Her latest EP, “Wake You,” carries the upbeat production and warmth of Sylvan Esso, the unexpected rhythms and percussion of Tune-Yards, and the dark vocals and trippy-ness of Portishead.
