Martha says she’s found a new love
He’s tall, he’s handsome, he’s charming and divine
She can not sleep, she can not eat
She’s thinking ‘bout him all of the time

She calls it love – not infatuation
But I wonder if true love would inflict such hunger
And sleep deprivation

Nina says she’s met ‘the one’
He’s cute, he’s clever, he’s oh so much fun!
She can not sleep, she can not eat
It’s the kind of passion that smothers the sun


Jodie says he sweeps her off her feet
She’s been spinning for days, he makes her feel dizzy
She can not sleep, she can not eat
Her work is out the window ‘cause he’s keeping her busy


Frida says he takes her breath away
She met him last week and he’s been calling her each day
She can not sleep, she can not eat
She’s head over heels, she’s hook, line, sinker and sailing away


As for me well, I’ve found a love that’s just right
I know, because when I am with him I don’t lose my appetite
As for me well, I’ve found a love that feels light
It’s a steady kind of love, that lets me sleep all through the night

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
