About Nez

Born in Perth Western Australia in 1977, yet raised within a Turkish culture at home, Nez's natural talent for music was nurtured by a deep desire to not only find a voice, but to be heard.

In a journey which took her from the school choir to the recording studio, Nez's natural flair for electronica saw her redefine what was thought possible of the genre, creating house tracks that capture the raw emotion usually only exposed in ballads.

Nez's voice is astonishingly pure
and rich despite the fact that she had
very little vocal training

Currently collaborating with producers from all over the globe, Nez continues to bridge the gap between house and emotion, empowering both herself and all those who are touched by her music.

Becoming Beautiful

Initially produced as a dance track, Beautiful has been released as an acoustic version to speak to a wider demographic. To listen to the song is to come on a journey with Nez as she prevails over strict oppression and domestic violence.

While writing the song required Nez to go to a dark, vulnerable place, the finished work itself is a beautiful voyage of healing towards optimism and self-belief. It's this belief that Nez instils in her young daughter, who symbolically features in the closing of the track.

The exposed lyrics of Beautiful resonate with people from all walks of life who have endured personal struggle; people that Nez seeks to help daily in her work as a counsellor and life coach. Drawing from her own turbulent upbringing, Nez provides personal assistance to youth and adults going through individual and family conflict.

In addition to Beautiful, Even When It's Cold is an equally evocative song; a personal tribute to Nez's mother and others struggling around the world.

An accomplished singer / songwriter, Nez's vast collection of music is designed to make you feel, think, and sometimes just let loose and dance.

Lyrics

Laid To Rest

Mumma, why are the children dying?
What did they do wrong?
Where are their homes?
Why is it so quiet?

What does it mean
When she's ripped out of her mother's arms?
How could it be that we just sit watching from afar?
Shooting down the stars
One by one they fall down
What have we all done?
Baby's laid to rest

What does it mean
When those in power have no hearts?
What can we do?
Their innocence like limbs are ripped apart
If they had a voice
Then what would they tell us?
Would they drown the noise of children laid to rest?

Where are the children?
Playgrounds vacant?
Drowning in all the bombs we're making
That which was once alive and green
Now dead turned to red
Where is the light in all this darkness?
Firebomb flares leave them starless
Clinging to the remnants of their homes
They're alone.

Steal The Light

Long ago, I feared my own shadow
But then one day, I set my world aglow,

Cos you always told me,
That these chains would break,
And now that I trust that,
I can escape,
Now I feel, life in motion,
Cos we live, in this moment,
Ooooh.
And I feel, life in motion,
Cos we live, in this moment,
Cos tonight we’ll steal the light!

Sometimes you have to take that blind step forward, make mistakes,
Cos life’s a risk so face your abyss, it’s you in the mirror, don’t be afraid,
Cos that’s what you told me,
Yeah that’s what you told me,
Cos that’s what you told me,
That’s what you told me,
Cos tonight we’ll steal the light!
Now I feel, life in motion,
Cos we live, in this moment,
And I feel, life in motion,
Cos we live, in this moment,
Cos tonight we’ll steal the light!

Beautiful Mistake (Haidyn Zafer)

Here I am, Im about to fall,
Four letters about to be the best thing before I break,
Oh for goodness sakes,
I don't care what this love thing takes,
You're not for me but I wanna be blind,
I wanna leave all my hurt and my doubts behind
So I play pretend tell myself I'll be fine
If I make a beautiful mistake.

You call me up all hours
And I still take your calls
You're late again but you brought flowers,
And so I take your coat,
Im feeling something for you
This I won't deny
I'm throwing caution to the wind tonight,
For tonight.

Here I am, Im about to fall,
Four letters about to be the best thing before I break,
Oh for goodness sakes,
I don't care what this love thing takes,
You're not for me but I wanna be blind,
I wanna leave all my hurt and my doubts behind
So I play pretend tell myself Ill be fine
If I make a beautiful mistake.

I watch you while your'e sleeping
Watch every breath you take
And one more time you are forgiven
And I make my mistake
I know I should know better
I know Im bound to fall
But its a risk Im taking
Once more,
Just once more.

Here I am, Im about to fall,
Four letters about to be the best thing before I break,
Oh for goodness sakes,
I don't care what this love thing takes,
You're not for me but I wanna be blind,
I wanna leave all my hurt and my doubts behind
So I play pretend tell myself I'll be fine
If I make a beautiful mistake.

Shadows

The mirror opens like a door
Revealing a dark cloud behind her
She comes out now in fragments from her past
Shutting out all light she stares
Her hazel eyes shy from the glare,
Coal black hair is dancing on her face.

Somewhere inside her
A rose garden grows
Enchanted by mirrors
No feelings she knows,
Shadows on her heart,
Tearing her apart.

Kicking pulled down the hallway,
She pushes through the keyhole,
Into her cold reflection, pictures weaved.
Pieces of her pain they,
Form the threads in her hands,
A tattered tapestry of broken dreams.


Where are the Springs 
When no rainfall she knows?
What will this bring,
As her broken heart grows.
Shadows on her heart,
Tearing her apart.


The mirror opens like a door
Revealing the dark clouds behind her
She comes out now in fragments from her past

Somewhere inside her
A rose garden grows
Enchanted by mirrors
No feelings she knows,
Shadows on her heart,
Tearing her apart.


Where is the rain 
When her pain ebbs the flow?
What will this bring,
As her broken heart slows?
Shadows on her heart,
Tearing her apart.
Shadows on her heart,
Tearing her apart.
Shadows on her heart,
Tearing her apart.

Icebergs

There’s icebergs in my sheets
And this used to be our bed,
Now left here wondering
Breathe escaping me,
Feeling dead.

Breaking up,
Melting down,
Frozen with you,
Whole again.

Breaking me up
And melting me down,
Shattered by you
Left in the cold
A crack in the ground,
I’m torn apart,
Repeating mistakes
To you I am bound,
You’re my addiction
I’m still exposed,
I’m still exposed to you.

I’m on my hands and knees
Picking up these pieces that you broke,
Choking on the grind
Of the love we left behind.

I was trapped in timelessness
Now I’m bleeding tears of crimson,
Frozen heart is laid to rest
Bitter, sweet, content.

Breaking me up
And melting me down,
Shattered by you
Left in the cold
A crack in the ground,
I’m torn apart,
Repeating mistakes
To you I am bound,
You’re my addiction
I’m still exposed,
I’m still exposed to you.

Even When It’s Cold

Remember, when you cried 
yourself to sleep,
Holding me tight.
Saw to it that I kept breathing
throughout the night.

The nights were silent,
Yet his words peirced you like thawns
And all the times that we fell,
Your prayers would lift us up.

Mother, I used to look at you
And think you were weak,
But now I know that you are stronger
Than any woman I've ever seen.

Though you have bruises,
That may never heal
Though your spine may seem weak
I know it's made of steel.

Even though he'll never bring back
What he has taken away,
You stride faster than the wind
On a blastery day,
Even when it's cold.

Many flowers and trees
Have shined on you 
As you walk these streets,
And mother out of all of the songs
That you sang to me
I always knew they were
From your heart's beat,
Your heart's beat.

Even though he'll never bring back
What he has taken away,
You stride faster than the wind
On a blastery day,
Even when it's cold.

Remember, when you cried
Yourself to sleep holding me tight.

Near and Far

Distance, like a knife through my soul
It's tearing us apart
Opening up a hole.

Your skin,
Your eyes,
Your touch slipping,
My tears, my mind, my heart gripping

Coz I feel
Near and far at the same time
With the lights on me
How do I unwind?

Got to find my place in the world,
Got to find my place in your heart,
How do I love you near and far?

Love, like I've never felt before,
Fills my heart,
Opening the door.

Your skin
Your eyes
Your touch
Your smile
Your heart
My life
Slipping
Gripping
Slipping
Gripping

Coz I feel
Near and far at the same time
With the lights on me
How do I unwind?

Got to find my place in the world,
Got to find my place in your heart,
How do I love you near and far?

Beautiful

Daddy stop the fighting,
I feel the pain,
It hurts to hear your bitter words,
That shiver in my veins,
Your words are like poison,
Your fists are like stones,
Your eyes, they scare me, please stop.

Daddy please stop fighting,
Mummy stop your crying,
I'm only little but my bones won't break.

You can try bring me down bruise my face but I know,
That I'm still beautiful,
You can teach to be cruel, hurt my soul but I know,
That I'm still beautiful,
You can take it all away, Leave me lost but I know,
That I'm still beautiful,
Tie my hands, call me names, play your games yet I know,
That I'm still beautiful.

Daddy stop the fighting,
I feel the pain,
It hurts to hear your bitter words,
That shiver in my veins,
Your words are like poison,
Your fists are like stones,
Your eyes, they scare me, please stop.

You can try bring me down bruise my face but I know,
That I'm still beautiful,
You can teach to be cruel, hurt my soul but I know,
That I'm still beautiful,
You can take it all away, Leave me lost but I know,
That I'm still beautiful,
Tie my hands, call me names, play your games yet I know,
That I'm still beautiful.

I'm still beautiful, I'm still beautiful,

(I love you) I love you, do you know that you're beautiful? (yes)
(I love you) I love you, do you know that you're beautiful? (yeah I know that)

My Little Angel

And God gave me a gift
Special little girl, so sweet like a melody
And flow with the wind
To the world I bring
Precious little thing
An angel from the sky
Angel from the sky
An angel from the sky
Angel from the sky

And may you make your mark
Colour in the rainbow with your pencils bright
No smudges in your sky
With your wings spread wide
Lovely butterfly
Because you are

Fly, spread your wings high
Fly, higher than the sky

No Matter What

I'm so sorry
That I couldn't give you everything,
That you wanted
From me to you.

You gave me time
Both yours and mine
Always there when I would cry.

No matter what.

If night was day
The sun would always shine on you,
If only I could take away your pain

You were born,
Without a dime, but then you climbed,
And now you stand so tall.

When my life was falling around me,
And when i was trapped inside my cell,
When I tried to flee, you accepted me,
And you showed me how to find myself.

Heartbeat

Music is my heartbeat all night long
you cant help feeling it inside you.

Music is my heartbeat all night long.

Flirting with the wind
I feel you under my skin
You got control of everything
With all the passion that you bring
I'm now infected by your sting
And I realise I need you more than anything.

Music is my heartbeat all night long
you cant help feeling it inside you.

Twirling in the wind
I feel you under my wings
You are the flow of everything
With the euphoria you bring
You've got me like a hook and sink
And I realise I need you more than anything.

Music is my heartbeat all night long
It's just a feeling and it's got you.

Good Bye

When I met you everything new
But your love wasn't fair and I knew
You'd make me crazy
M-Make me cry
And now, Good bye.

Now I wish I never met you
I wish you never lied
And I wish I could forget
All this pain inside

See I wish I never loved you
And wish i never tried
Now I see that loving you
Would only ever mean

Good Bye

Still got feelings
Know that it's true
And even though
I-I still love you
You drive me crazy
M-Make me cry
So now, Good Bye!

Now I wish I never met you
I wish you never lied
And I wish I could forget
All this pain inside

See I wish I never loved you
And wish I never tried
Now I see that loving you
Would only ever mean

Good Bye

Setting you free
Will give you happiness too
But always remember this,
Though you hurt me,
And I hurt you too,
I'll always love you,
But loving you could only ever mean,

Good Bye!

Fields of Passion (Nik Felippe)

I close my eyes envision times that you and I,
Would spend the day and night together in our dreams,
We'd stay asleep all night
Just our two hearts beating,
Though we were miles apart we'd still hold hands.

The night is clear,
The stars are out and you and I,
Are in our special place of passion
Once again,
I feel the cool cool breeze
It's blowing memories through the years,
Finally I feel my life's complete.

You are here,
In our field of passion,
Hold me near and never ever let me go.

Touch my heart it will love you
Till the end of time,
In our dreams we'll never be alone.

You are here,
In our field of passion,
Hold me near and never ever let me go.

Touch my heart it will love you
Till the end of time,
In our dreams we'll never be alone.

Everything Nothing

Coz I'm good,
And I'm bad,
I'm always right,
But more than often I'm wrong,
I'm yours but,
I'm mine too,
My knees are weak my mind is strong.,

And when I sink into your arms
I'm flying away,
And all this energy is wasted
Cos life is just a game.

Then I realise seems I'm everything and nothing with you.
Mean, kind, same time, everything is perfect with you.
Tell me sweet lies, everything and nothing is true.
Love, fight, ignite, everything is nothing with you.

I'm close but,
I'm distant,
I'm always hot but more than often I'm cold,
And when I desire
I live my life I won't get old.

And when I sink into your arms
I'm flying away,
And all this energy is wasted
Cos life is just a game.

Then I realise, seems I'm everything and nothing with you.
Mean, kind, same time, everything is perfect with you.
Tell me sweet lies, everything and nothing is true.
Love, fight, ignite, everything is nothing with you.

Island (Haiydn Zafer)

I got the sun on my back 
Caress my body like a tropical breeze
Like a lover's kiss
Love come's so easily
I'm on the island

This must be the place
They're calling paradise,
This must be the place
Where my dreams come to life.

This must be the place they're calling paradise,
This must be the place
Where my dreams
Come to life -To life.

I take a ride on a boat
Through crystal waters
And the palm tree groves,
Like a secret place
No ones supposed to know,

I'm on the island

I take it all in my stride
Impress no body
Now I'm living the life,
And it feels so right
My heart is yours tonight,
I'm on the island


This must be the place
They're calling paradise,
This must be the place
Where my dreams
Come to life.


This must be the place
They're calling paradise,
This must be the place
Where my dreams
Come to life -To Life
The sun sets on the horizon
The temperature keeps on rising
My heart calls out like a siren
I'm on the island
