    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

JEALOUSY 04:00
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

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

BLACK DOG 03:07
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

DAMSEL 03:38
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.....

FORTUNATA 03:32
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

LOVE WAR 02:39
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

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 …..

MARTIN PLACE 03:20
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

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…..

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
