about

A song written about reading too many self help books

lyrics

Keep your head down
Refrain from a frown
An early rise,
Some exercise,
And it will come

The steps it takes to be a better man
Affects every inch of me, 'till I succumb

Never deceive
And never be deceived
These are the virtues of the pure

The steps it takes to be a better man
Affects every inch of me, 'till I succumb
Connect the dots to see, how you can
Collect some sympathy, 'till you become

A better man
A better man

What does it take to be a better man?
A little dignity, and a willing hand
Untie the untruths, open up your heart
And hold yourself accountable
Now that's the start
Of a better man

about

Martha Bean Leicester, UK

Songs are ‘full of charm, delicateness, and pure, unadulterated loveliness’**, veering from enigmatic and sobering, to the brooding razor-sharp.

Recently played on BBC 6Music and supporting the likes of Marika Hackman, Scott Matthews and Seth Lakeman, Martha has a world-class voice well worth keeping your ears open for.
