From the recording Dreamer

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Dust Settles" is the Brand-New Single from my current album. "Dust Settles" is a mix between Indie-Rock-Rap-Pop. It is a breakup song but the lyrics are more reminiscent of what the toxic relationship used to be and how it left them feeling in the end...It is the realization of what had been. She is remembering how awful it was and how difficult it was to finally end everything for good. I do Rap in the song but it's a mixture of Pop/Rock/Rap...possibly similar to something Gwen Stefani might do or Rihanna. I truly hope you like it. This is one of my favorites and it took me a long time to be able to sing it because the emotions were still too raw to process. If you are going through a toxic relationship I hope you can find your inner strength to end things and take your power back, no matter what race, religion, gender or background. You deserve to be happy and you deserve love, especially self-love.
I'm currently releasing one song at a time since I'm working steadily in the studio recording my newest tunes and don't want to wait to release them all together. "Warrior" was my most recent single previous to this song. That means I have many more singles coming, so be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram and check out my website for more music.
"Dreamer" was the first release off of the album and following was "I Am! I Am! (My Own Kind of Pretty)". You can stream or download my music through most online streaming sites, such as Spotify, iTunes, iHeartRadio, YouTube (many more) Worldwide! Don't forget my website: GladstoneSong.com
"Warrior" is the song that is going to get you pumped up for the party, the game, the car ride, the gym. It's pumped full of action, hard-hitting beats with killer instrumentals and it's fun!
The lyrics are positive and uplifting but the song is meant to be motivating and get the party started. I hope you like it! I realize it is much different than anything I've done in the past. It's Rock, Edgy, and unique, but has an all-around Pop vibe.
Thank you to all of those who continue to follow me, listen to my music and share my songs. It really means a lot to me to have you hear my music and feel something from it. I hope to inspire the world one person at a time.
Each song I release has it's own identity and may even have a different genre but they all come from me and my passion for writing and music. This is a lifelong dream of mine and I'm so thankful to be able to share my creations with you. Cheers!
May you fight off this battle we are currently facing and stay safe out there my friends!

Much Love & Good Vibes,

Suzanne Gladstone
I hope my song inspires you and I hope you know how amazing you truly are. You are more powerful than you know. You can achieve anything you set your mind to. Happiness is a choice, keep the negativity behind you and move on! Cheers!

XOXO - Suzanne Gladstone

Lyrics

“Dust Settles”
Written By: Suzanne J. Gladstone

(Verse 1)
I want to be with someone -who lights up when they see me
I’m feelin’ weak – you’re taking all the air Im breathing
Why do I continue to put up with this mess?
Am I caught up in another one of life’s special tests?
I’m sick of this test. So sick of this life
I need something more. Where is Mr. Right?
Where is Mr. Right
(Chorus)
I can’t stand this cold bed
or these nasty thoughts filled with dread
Can’t sleep at night wondering if everything is gonna be alright
I’m so confused, so used / what could’ve I have done differently
Yelling screaming all the time/ such heavy air-that I can't breathe

As the dust settles your gone / as the dust settles…. You’re goo-oooone!
As the dust settles your goooone / As the dust settles… You’re gooone!

(Verse 2)
Pointed out all the mistakes that I made / Saying you love me / but then push me away
Your prideful distortion: left me to cry / Nasty thoughts in my head left me crucified
Always make me feel like I’m 2 inches tall,
but when you call my name; I’m at your beckon call
I want to be your candle and you can be my flame
But all I seem to do is wait around for you to change
Being with you is like being-alone / As the dust-settles; I realize you’re gone
Fear of awakening has turned me to stone / I’ve been conquered; you’ve taken my throne

(Chorus)
I can’t stand this cold bed
or these nasty thoughts filled with dread
Can’t sleep at night wondering if everything is gonna be alright
I’m so confused, so used / what could’ve I have done differently
Yelling screaming all the time/ such heavy air-that I can't breathe
As the dust settles you’re goo--oone!
As the dust settles your goooone / As the dust settles…. You’re gooone!
As the dust settles your goooone / As the dust settles… you’re gooone!

(Verse 3)
There’s no devotion on your side, it’s like your blind!
Too late to change / Can't go back in time / Too late to hit rewind
You make me wait / Make me stay / Laugh at me / Call me names
But now my floodlights shining on your lies / I won’t take all your alibis
Do you like to seeing me in pain? Do you like driving me insane?
(Ohoh-oohhh!!! You’re goooone, your gone, gone)
As the dust settles your goooone / As the dust settles….You’re gooone!
As the dust settles your goooone / As the dust settles… You’re gooone!
As the dust settles your goooone / As the dust settles….You’re gooone!

Being with you is like being-alone / As the dust-settles; I realize you’re gone
A fear of awakening has turned me to stone / I’ve been conquered; you’ve taken my throne
Why do I let you control my heart? All you do is take it and break it apart
Can’t believe you lied to my face / All those memories now / gone to waste
You told me you loved me, but your eyes couldn’t lie / Your prideful distortion left me to cry
Living too long a fantasy-zone / Extra- terr-estrial / planet-unknown!

As the dust settles your goooone / as the dust settles….You’re gooone!
As the dust settles your goooone / as the dust settles… You’re gooone!
As the dust settles your goooone / as the dust settles….You’re gooone!

I can’t stand this cold bed
or these nasty thoughts filled with dread
Can’t sleep at night wondering if everything is gonna be alright
everything is gonna be alright

(Bridge)
Tried to lie in the mirror / So I could hide all my tears
Thought maybe it’s what I deserve / To be unseen, to be unheard, how absurd
How did these lines get so blurred?
I’ve been through this so many times / My love is gone, my tears have dri----iiiied
Won’t suffer anymore
Think it's time to say goodbye!
