I Don't Belong is from the upcoming album, Beware The Sirens, which will be released February 12th, 2016.

Beware the Sirens, recorded entirely in one take, is an attempt to capture the live, raw quality of Samantha Church's street performances. At Eden Studios in Los Angeles, CA, one mic was set up to capture just voice and banjo as each song was recorded one right after the other--just as you would hear it on the street. For the tracks I Don't Belong and I've Come Undone, additional instrumentation was done after the fact--a tribute to the impromptu jam sessions that occur among street performers. In this album, you hear the hard edges, the mistakes, and also the emotion and humanity that comes from live performance.


You loved me, I know it, I felt it. I felt it.
I loved you. You know it. You felt it. You felt it.
You felt me. I need it. I loved it, I loved it.
I felt you. You loved it. You loved it. You loved me.

You know my body belongs to you
but I don't belong

It's too hot. Too heavy. It weighs much, much too much
You need me. I need you. It scares me. It scares you.
It haunts me. I want you. It pulls me. I push you.
Let's step back. Just step back. You'll crush me. I'll crush you.

You know my body belongs to you
but I don't belong.

All I can do for you from now on is get gone, get gone
All I can do for you from now on is get gone, get gone
