Sometimes when I'm on the street Somebody's perfume will make my heart skip a beat Its the one you used to where before I'd recognize it anywhere its Trèsor Then suddenly the memories Start flooding back to me Its '93 and I see Us sitting by your vanity How you'd glow; How you'd shine All I wanted was that life to be mine But I'd grow up to find Some dreams are just too blind I'll never wear your mother's pearls And I'll never be your little girl But Mama that's alright at least I've got you in my life I know I don't fit tradition right so I'll give up this fight I'll never wear your mother's pearls I'll never wear your mother's pearls In the attic there's that portrait of you The debutante of '72 You look so pretty all dressed up in white But we both know I'll never have that rite and I'll never wear your mother's pearls I'll never be your little girl But Mama that's alright at least I've got you in my life I know I don't fit tradition right so I'll give up this fight I'll never wear your mother's pearls I'll never wear your mother's pearls I'll never wear your mother's pearls And I'll never be your little girl Oh no...

Ingenue 03:14
I've got a crush, crush on you You've got me feeling like an Ingenue I've got a crush, crush its true And I just don't know what to do I think about you all the time You are the only thing on my mind I hope that stars will align So that I can call you mine Ingenue Got a crush on you baby Dreams come true When I see you blush baby When I'm with you All my moons are blue Each day is my debut Feel like an Ingenue Got a crush, crush its true But this one feels so strange and new Cause I've got trust, trust in you Like no one that I ever knew Never been the first one to believe In things like true love that's just too naive But when I'm with you I'm so carefree You've got me feeling like a teen Ingenue Got a crush on you baby Dreams come true When I see you blush baby When I'm with you All my moons are blue Each day is my debut Feel like an Ingenue You give me butterflies, oh! Ingenue I know you'd never lie no Ingenue I seem me dressed in white Ingenue You'll be my shining knight Ingenue I wanna give you my all Ingenue Please be my date through life's ball Whoah! Make me your Ingenue Ingenue Whoah! Say that dreams come true And that you're dreamin' too Ingenue Got a crush on you baby Dreams come true When I see you blush, see you blush, see you blush baby I'm with you All my moons are blue Each day is my debut feel like an Ingenue An Ingenue An Ingenue I've got a crush (crush) on you You've got me feeling like an Ingenue

Hudson Hymn 04:13
Been a long time since I believed in angels But right now I wanna try Been a long time since I believed in the Gospel But right now I have to try 'Cause these riverbanks won't dry Since you left me behind As the water starts to rise I get swept into the tide But I let my fear subside 'Cause I feel you by my side Then I start to hear the sweet sound Hudson Hymn Hudson Hymn Hudson Hymn Hudson Hymn Been a long time since I let water run through me But right now I have to cry Been a long time since I let love subsume me But right now I have to try 'Cause these riverbanks won't dry Since you left me behind As the water starts to rise I get swept into the tide But I let my fear subside 'Cause I feel you by my side Then I start to hear the sweet sound Hudson Hymn Oh God! The realization's settled in Hudson Hymn Oh God please hear my Hudson Hymn! Hudson Hymn Oh God! Feels like I'm drownin' Hudson Hymn Hear my Hudson Hymn, Hear my Hudson Hymn Hudson Hymn Hudson Hymn Hudson Hymn

High Sociatease High Sociatease Oh the season's just divine So long as you come from the right family line High society High societies Got that new old money smell Wearing Mama's vintage Chanel All the girls can tell Though you play the roll so well You ain't like the other Belles You're High Sociatease If you practice what they preach All you'll ever be is just a tea High Sociatease High Sociatease Oh the country's just a club Of the big shots acting smug Darling isn't that the rub? High Sociatease High Sociatease Oh it ain't for you and it ain't for me High Sociatease Oh it's just a tease High Sociatease Oh it's just a tease High Sociatease

Somewhere in a store In any town in America Is a child who wants a doll Any doll in America They are only four So much life in store Somewhere in a home In any town in America Is a child who feels alone Feels alone in America They feel it in their bones In this body they are not at home Somewhere in a church In any town in America A child is trying to fit in To fit in in America They don't understand They don't know God's plan Somewhere on the streets In any city in America Is a girl working the heat In the heat of America She picks up a john Oh, but something's wrong Then the world melts all around her As she struggles for his knife He yells, "I'll kill you freak" As she struggles for her life She narrowly escapes him But not without a scratch or two She is just fifteen But she knows the streets are mean In America In America In America Any town in America Any town in America

Excuse me darlin' do you have a light? Could I breath you in before we called in a night? Oh... See the sun rising in the east Does it make you think of all the folks you won't meet? Well it makes me think that life could be Perfume and Cigarettes There just ain't not time for your regrets Perfume and Cigarettes So take a cue now before you forget and Light me up, Woah Grab a cup To toast the rise before the fall Light it up, light it up and Live it up Before we're too old to want it all Excuse me gorgeous do you have the time? Could you spare a moment for me to pick your mind? Oh... See all the people laughing as they go Is love really just another show? And is life just Perfume and Cigarettes There just ain't not time for your regrets Perfume and Cigarettes So take a cue now before you forget and Light me up, Woah Grab a cup To toast the rise before the fall Light it up, light it up and Live it up Before we're too old to want it all It's just perfume and And The Language of Flowers is beautiful But that will never be the way that I can get to you, no The words are right there on the tip of my tongue But when I got to speak, my first instinct is to run You've never been my fellow The roses have been yellow I'm always so damn mellow When you flirt with me But can't you see the peonies? You and me You could be my baby The Language of Flowers is beautiful But that will never be the way that I can get to you, no The words are right there on the tip of my tongue But when I got to speak, my first instinct is to run I've searched the nations For red carnations But my station Won't let the words come out But they need to 'Cause I'm in full bloom And I have been doomed since I smelled your Perfume and, and Cigarettes

Nostalgia 05:56
Amore mio il tuo profumo indugia tutt'intorno a me I miei ricordi hanno l'odore del tuo sicomoro My memories bloom of you and my last June When we both fit together Bright as the weather still... You were my home Now everywhere I go I am missing you Want to be kissing you again And I know we've changed Gone our separate ways But part of me still believes that you're the one for me Guess I'm trapped in that feeling of... Nostalgia Woah Nostalgia Oh I ache for the way we used to be A rose colored version of you and me Nostalgia Woah Then it all went wrong like a sad love song That home fell apart both had broken heart And will But as those memories fade think of the summer haze When you were the one for me flowers on the trees still But we could never change Not in the same ways So I'll scatter these memories Like petals to the breeze and the air will be scented of... Nostalgia Woah Nostalgia Oh I ache for the way we used to be A rose colored version of you and me Nostalgia Woah Nostalgia Oh I ache for the way we used to be A rose colored version of you and me Nostalgia Oh Woah...

It's the War of Roses If one door opens the other door closes The War of Roses If I pick the wrong path I will lose them both in the end And if I don't chose fast I'll lose a lover and a friend The War of Roses The War of Roses Roses The War of Roses Up till now my life was heading in one direction Until my baby stopped giving me love and affection Suddenly the road ahead seemed to split in two Finally, I could see a different point of view It's the War of Roses If one door opens the other door closes The War of Roses If I pick the wrong path I will lose them both in the end And if I don't chose fast I'll lose a lover and a friend The War of Roses The War of Roses Roses The War of Roses It's the War of Roses If one door opens the other door closes The War of Roses If I pick the wrong path I will lose them both in the end And if I don't chose fast I'll lose a lover and a friend The War of Roses The War of Roses The War of Roses Roses The War of Roses

Grace 03:50
Hey there little grace with your head in your hand Its time for you to come to know what I finally understand Hey there with the weight of the world My wisdom is just a little pearl why not give it a whirl I know that there are many things that you would like to hide But you've got to learn to own those things with pride 'Cause whether you're on the moon or under southern stars No distance can erase your scars Eventually you'll have to face your heart You've got to learn to forgive 'Cause it makes it easier to live And you cannot run away from who you are Hey there lonely heart I know how you feel Oh it's been a bumpy start can this reality be real Hey there little Grace I'm here to lend a hand You've got to learn to trust yourself Baby, don't you understand? I know that there are many things that you would like to hide But you've got to learn to own those things with pride 'Cause whether you're on the moon or under southern stars No distance can erase your scars Eventually you'll have to face your heart You've got to learn to forgive 'Cause it makes it easier to live And you cannot run away from who you are Who you are You'll find your way, with a little faith to little grace Have some faith Look me in my face I know you'll find the way You'll find the way to little grace I'm little Grace You're little grace Have a little faith And a little Grace You'll find your way

Wrap me up in the finest silk you can find I've been living in a couture state of mind Tried to wrap it up nicely in a bow But that's not how life goes Even though we've said we've let things go Sometimes the feelings will still show The aftershocks are mostly gone Now I think I'm ready to move on Though the past will always be a part of me This is a self-portrait 2019 This is a life caught in the moment In between Where I've been and where I'd Like to be This is a self-portrait 2019 These couture dreams Babe, you're bound to go out and ruffle some feathers When you're decked from head to toe in ruffles or feathers Critiques so thinly veiled georgette They ain't ready these silhouettes Tailor all these clothes to my physique I want to feel Parisienne Chic Every piece it feels like me unique There is no more time to hide This woman now walks with her head held high This is a self-portrait 2019 This is a life caught in the moment In between Where I've been and where I'd Like to be This is a self-portrait 2019 These couture dreams

about

I’m Goldie, a singer-songwriter who first found her voice in the church choir growing up in North Carolina. As a pisces, I’ve always been a dreamer. I spent so much of my childhood wanting something more or something else. Sometimes it was to be a great opera star touring Europe. Sometimes it was to be the creative director of the next great fashion house or to be a model. Other times it was just to find love and more importantly myself.

I went running around the country and the world to try and find that something. I tried my hand at fashion, at classical music, at the ball scene, in nightlife, in academia, at trying to fit in, at trying to make myself be what everyone else thought I should be. But every time I ended up right back where I was, unhappy with myself. It wasn’t till I was 25, that I finally stopped running and faced what I’d known deep down but never articulated—I am a transwoman.

That is what my first album is about. It’s about the weight of tradition and expectations of the world and finally realizing I could only ever be myself. The Debutante is a celebration of coming into my womanhood and into my transness with all the lessons I learned along the way. It’s about falling in love and getting your heart broken. It’s about growing up and realizing that sometimes being yourself means disappointing those you love. But mostly it’s about embracing yourself and realizing that sometimes growing up means loving every part of the journey that got you exactly where you are right now. Because right now you’re standing tall in your own skin and, hell, you look pretty fabulous too. x
