    LOVE WAR is Tammy Ingram's debut album. Written and recorded in Australia and Berlin, Germany.

    With track titles ranging from Jealousy, Love War and Black Dog to the more reconciliatory Ask Not For Whom My Bell Tolls to the instrumental Skipping Through Tour Eiffel, “Love War” promises organic, deep wooden sounds from double bass, cello, harp, clarinet and trumpet with the added triumvirate of beautifully crafted songs, lyrics and voice. This album is not to be missed.

    “Oh love your voice. Very nice!”
    David Noel, Soundcloud

    “Reminiscent of Feist and Laura Marling with a little Nick Drake thrown in, this is a strong debut album full of gutsy melodies showing off a talented Australian songwriter.”
    Kristen Francis, Legs 11 Festival

Track Name: JEALOUSY
Lace curtains with sunlight pouring through
And kisses on the hand of all the love we knew
I love that memory and cling to all its pain
Oh it’s the little things you just can’t explain
Oh it’s the little things that bring it back to me

Come back to me
And I’ll come running back to you, you’ll see
Oh jealousy, there ain’t no place for you in my love
Ain’t no place for you in my love

Love’s first sideways glances
She’s got her eye on you
Panic stay away from me
I know you are love’s fool
But what should she mean to me?
What does she mean to you?
Oh it’s the little things you just can’t get used to
Oh it’s the little things that bring it back to you

Come back to me
And I’ll come running back to you, you’ll see
Oh jealousy, there ain’t no place for you in my love
Ain’t no place for you in my love
(come back to me)
You’ll see
Track Name: YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
You’ll never know this song’s for you
You’ll never know just what you put me through
My orchard is in flower and you tempt me every hour with your fruit
That’s what you do

And I, I know that the grass looks greener on the other side
I can’t help but look for some kind of confirmation
Every time I look in your eyes

You, you got it going on
You got my bags packed for an adventure in love
I can smell you on me already
Cigar smoking, strip poker picnics in your study that we share
Then I come up for air

And I, I know that the grass looks greener on the other side
I can’t help but look for some kind of confirmation
Some kind of deja vu variation
Every time I look in your eyes

Did you see my list of fears?
I left them on your coffee table
Moments before you disappeared

You’ll never know this song’s for you
Track Name: BLACK DOG
I woke up with the weight of the world on my shoulders
And I could tell by the look on your face, you were moving boulders all night too

Agony waits like a dog at the door begging to come in
It’s only a matter of time until his owner lets him in.
We got heavy hearts, heavy hearts today
And I’m not sure how to make those bad dreams, bad dreams go away

There’s genius all around
And magic happens every day
At least that’s what the bumper stickers say
Somehow it doesn’t seem to come our way
But there was a time when magic happened every day.
It happened every day.

Agony waits like a dog at the door begging to come in
It’s only a matter of time until, his owner lets him in
Time is not always kind
Time is not on my side

We got heavy hearts, heavy hearts today
And I’m not sure how to make those bad dreams, bad dreams go away
Track Name: DAMSEL
Has your heart got a bounty on it?
Is your heart as full as mine?
Are you content with your ‘No Vacancy’ sign
I see your sign matches mine

She feels just like a damsel in that dress
She looks just like an angel lost its wings about to crash
You got yourself into an awful mess
But you want it all, you want it all yeah

Here comes the winter of our discontented hearts
This could be very wrong or very smart
Take a leap with me into the ocean blue
We will see how far we can swim to

She feels just like a damsel in that dress
She looks just like an angel lost its wings about to crash
You got yourself into an awful mess
But the love is gone, love is gone

Give me something to believe
Wear your heart upon your sleeve a little while
Make me want to breathe a million breaths until we both collide and tragically die
until we both collide.....

Here comes the winter of our discontented hearts
This could be very wrong or very, very smart
Take a leap with me into the ocean blue
We will see how far we can swim to
how far.....
Track Name: FORTUNATA
Bounce it around and kick it down
Into the furthest crack of your neighbour’s backyard
Give it a name, call it a shame
And wait to see if it boomerangs back ‘round again

I can’t make you promises
There’s none that I can keep
Oh don’t listen to me now
I’m a drunk man talking in my sleep

“Your love is wasted on me
Your love is wasted on me”
Oh no no no I didn’t mean it, I didn’t mean it
Oh no no no I didn’t mean it

Oh Fortunata dance with me
The dance of chance and destiny
Teach this broken body how to fly

Are you the one that waited for me?
A captive listening for the door key
A prisoner to the sound of your sighs

Well, I can‘t make you promises, there’s none that I could keep
But oh don’t listen to me now
I’m a drunk man talking in my sleep

“Your love is wasted on me”
Oh no no no I didn’t mean it
Track Name: LOVE WAR
This here is a war
Fought one sided with clenched fist
Behind a closed door
For what we’re not sure
Now we’re fighting in circles
Just preserving a stronghold

I didn’t sign up
I didn’t line up for this
Now I’m on the frontline
Aren’t we on the same side?
Who knows anymore?
This here is a war

Well I wish you would put down your weapon
All this friendly fire has got me sweating,
Forgetting my truth, & taking my youth
Confliction stealing love’s loving healing

It’s a war

I didn’t sign up
I didn’t line up for this
Now I’m on the frontline
Aren’t we on the same side?
Who knows anymore?

Well I didn’t sign up
No I didn’t line up for this
But I still line up for your kiss
Track Name: ASK NOT FOR WHOM MY BELL TOLLS
Ask Not For Whom My Bell Tolls
Ask not for whom my bell tolls it tolls for you
And ask not for whom my heart beats,
this beat is true
And I’m taking it to the streets this time
So put your loving hand in mine
Ask not for whom my bell tolls it tolls for you

Oh you’re so beautiful
Even though you look away
When I tell you so
But I think you’re so beautiful

Must be divine intervention
That brought this angel to my life
Giving me renewed understanding
Of what it means to have love in my life

Ask not for who
Ask not for whom my bell tolls it tolls for you
And ask not for whom my heart beats, this beat is true
And I’m taking it to the streets this time
So put your loving hand in mine
Ask not for whom my bell tolls, it tolls for you

Oh you’re so beautiful
Even though you look away
When I tell you so
But I think you’re so beautiful
…..
Track Name: MARTIN PLACE
All the things he always knew
And all the things she never knew
And all the love they heard could be true
Just disappeared

All the hopes he held so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Two strangers pass each other by
And just disappear

Like ships in the night
Taking the future just out of sight
Leave them wondering why oh why
Did they never appear?

We are all just strangers
As we pass each other by
We are all just strangers with emotional alibis

Now all the things he always knew
And all the things she never knew
And all the love they heard could be true
Just reappeared

He’s dropping his wallet now
She’s passing it by
Lord only knows how fate could pass these two
Misguided souls by

Like ships in the night…..
Taking their future just out of sight
Leaving them wondering why oh why
Did they never appear?
Why won’t they appear?
Will they ever appear?

We are all just strangers
As we pass each other by
We are all just strangers with emotional alibis

Stranger, just walks on by
Track Name: A PLACE FOR YOU IN MY HEART
On a sea with no name
Watching all of the movies in my head replay
The scenes never change
And someone always gets hurt when we play this game

I remember every word you said
You remember every turn of my head
I’ve been thinking of those melancholy days of goodbye

But there’ll always be a place for you in my heart
There’ll always be a place for you
It was written in silence right from the start
There’ll always be a place for you in my…

It’s a beautiful day
A shimmering light seems to communicate
Winking just for me
Telling me the stories of our separate destinies

I remember every word you said
You remember every turn of my head
I’ve been thinking of those heady days of hello hello hello

But there’ll always be a place for you in my heart
There’ll always be a place for you
It was written in silence right from the start
There’ll always be a place for you in my…

Aching heart leave me alone
Thinking of your love with someone else
And a futile battle does take hold
Thinking of your love with someone else
And my love with someone else
And our love with someone else

But there’ll always be a place for you in my heart
There’ll always be a place for you
It was written in golden right from the start
There’ll always be a place for you
……In my…..
Track Name: SOFT AS A WHISPER
Soft as a whisper
Treacherous as the sea
(Is) my love for thee

Soaring high, crashing low
All in the same three minute conversation
Soaring high, crashing low
Talk about the miracle of aviation
“How do they get those planes off the ground?
How do they do it ?”

Soft as a whisper
Treacherous as the sea
My love for thee

The waiter walks by
“Hey how you doin’?
Do you know what you want from the menu”
“No I don’t know what I want from the menu could you come back?
Come back in three minutes time”

Soft as a whisper
Treacherous as the sea
My love for thee
