Kiesza – Giant In My Heart

Kiesza is a singer-songwriter from Calgary, and is also an in-demand songwriter for acts across the globe, puts together her own stunning artwork, is a trained ballerina, and a former tall-ship sailor who the Army once attempted to train as a sniper. Kiesza’s first songs had a distinctly folky edge, but her writing would soon expand to other genres. After recording a few demos with a friend, she decided to submit a CD to Selkirk’s music school, before setting sail for Hawaii. Upon arrival in Hawaii, she received a call saying she was accepted without an audition or interview. Kiesza left Hawaii, and after a year at Selkirk received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston. After attending Berklee, she went to New York City to advance her music career. One professor knew Kiesza had a rare skill and put her in touch with recent graduate Rami Samir Afuni. The well-paired duo started experimenting with music and songwriting, and still does to this day. Kiesza’s transition from folk to her new evolving sound has developed naturally, as she idolized Michael Jackson when she was younger, and grew up listening to dance-floor dominating voices like Martha Wash, CeCe Peniston and Robin S. More recently, Disclosure and Hot Natured have been added to her musical influences, as well as nights spent dancing at New York’s Body & Soul events. In January 2014, ‘Hideaway’ was released by Rami’s own Lokal Legend label, and soon after Kiesza moved to London. The track was recorded in just over an hour; just before Kiesza was due to get on a flight. The song’s video was shot in one-take on the streets of Brooklyn, and showcases Kiesza’s attention-grabbing dance moves.

Kiesza – Giant In My Heart

Kiesza – Giant In My Heart Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
I’m trying to pretend it isn’t true
But even when I want its like I can’t get over you
Over you
Over you, Over you
And everytime I try and tell you why
I turn my face and tears run down my eyes
It’s over now, over now
Baby it’s over now, over now

[Chorus 1]
So give me all the magic
Just give me all the magic that we made
It’s like a giant in my heart babe
This love is greater then my heartbreak
So give me back the moments
Just give me back the moments that we made
It’s like a giant in my heart babe
This love is greater then my heartbreak

[Ad-libs]
Wow doo doo doo doo dow

[Chorus 2]
What’s the point of going through
All the pain I’m in with you
What am I supposed to do
In my heart there’s only you
Baby I can’t lose you

[Verse 2]
I’m lying to myself that I’m ok
But when I see your photograph
I’m still not over you, over you
Over you, over you
And everytime I will your love away
It comes back in a rush reminding me
It’s over now, over now
Over now, Over now
[Chorus]
[Ad-Libs]
[Chorus 2]
[Spoken]
I tried my best And I’ll confess I’ll love with less
I gave the most And took the loss From what I chose
I Fought for you You lead me to A painful truth
And now I wait Without a heart to save
[Bridge]
My Love, My Love, My Love, My Love
My Love, My Love, My Love, My Love [x2]
There’s no escaping you
[Ad-Libs]
[Chorus 2]
