Not to be confused with British vocalist Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie & the Banshees fame, Susie Suh is an American singer/songwriter — specifically, a Korean-American singer/songwriter — from Los Angeles. Suh, who was 25 in 2005, is young enough to be the daughter of Siouxsie Sioux (who was born Susan Dallion on May 27, 1958, and adopted Siouxsie Sioux as a stage name when she founded Siouxsie & the Banshees in 1976 — several years before Susie Suh was even born). Besides, Suh sounds nothing like Sioux stylistically; while Siouxsie & the Banshees were pioneers of punk, new wave, and goth rock, Suh favors an adult alternative/folk-rock approach along the lines of Fiona Apple, Sarah McLachlan, and former 'Til Tuesday singer turned solo star Aimee Mann (three of the singer/songwriters she has often been compared to). Suh (who plays guitar and piano and has cited Joni Mitchell and Beth Gibbons as some of her major influences) writes highly introspective and personal lyrics, many of them of them on the melancholy side; the southern Californian has a world-weary outlook and deals with her share of darker emotions, which is definitely something she has in common with Apple.

Although Suh has lived in the United States her entire life, both of her parents are immigrants who moved to southern California from Korea in the '60s. Suh's involvement with music began when she was only eight and joined a Korean children's choir, whose repertoire ranged from traditional Korean songs to American pop. At 13, Suh left Los Angeles for New Hampshire, where she attended a boarding school and did her share of songwriting during her adolescent years; Suh was around 17 when she recorded a six-song EP, pressed 1,000 copies onto CDs, and managed to sell about 700 of them to her schoolmates. After reaching adulthood, Suh attended Brown University in Rhode Island (where she obtained a degree in English), but spent as much time as she could visiting New York City and performing in Lower Manhattan clubs. A career in music is not something that Suh's ambitious parents encouraged — in fact, they tried to talk her out of it and encouraged her to go into a more stable, less volatile line of work. Music, they asserted, should be nothing more than a hobby for Suh. But her parents' lack of support didn't discourage the L.A. native; if anything, it inspired her to persevere and work even harder at having a career in music. "Your Battlefield," one of Suh's songs, was inspired by her career-related disagreements with her parents.

In 2003, Suh signed with Epic/Sony; she ended up working with Glen Ballard, a well-known producer/songwriter/arranger whose lost list of credIt's ranges from No Doubt to Paula Abdul to Alanis Morissette — it was Ballard who produced Morissette's 1995 blockbuster, Jagged Little Pill. At first, Ballard only agreed to produce a few songs for Suh, but he was so impressed with her work that he ended up producing her entire debut album (a self-titled CD that Epic released in April 2005).

Won't you come again

What do I say
On this january day
When all my thoughts have gone astray
But I'm thinking 'bout you

And what do I do
When I'm black and I'm blue
And I'm still loving you
But I know it was meant to end

Oh, I'm missing you
Or maybe I'm just missing who I was
When I was with you

Oh love, oh love
Oh won't you come again
Take me in your arms and hold me
Make me feel new again

And how do I convey
All the words that I could never say
To you when you were around

Oh, I'm missing you
Or maybe I'm just missing how I felt
When I was with you

Oh love, oh love
Oh won't you come again
Take me in your arms and dance with me
Make me feel alive again

Oh love, oh love
Won't you come again
Take me in your arms and hold me
Make we want to laugh and sing
Make me want to love again

Your Battlefield

Someday I will ask you if I was a disapointment
I will ask you if you put your hard earned money into a bad investment
You will tell me there are no garauntees but you
Got solutions for security
And I will ask you, I would ask you
How about my dreams

But you say life is a battlefield and you have
Given me the arms
You say I have to fight
I have to keep moving on

Someday I will ask myself if I was disillusioned
I will ask myself, if I have proven
That I made it on my own terms
Yeah I may have suffered some burns but I am
Living my dreams and am who I wanna be

But you say life is a battlefield and you have
Given me the arms
You say I have to fight
I have to keep moving on

On this path that youve tread
On this map, that is yours
Well I have to say, have to say, have to say
That I cant fight your war, I cant fight your war

But you say life is a battlefield and you have
Given me the arms
You say I have to fight
I have to keep moving on

Hey yeah oh oh oh
This is your battlefield
This is my life that youre asking for
This is my life that you wanted much
More then yours

But you say life is a battlefield and you have
Given me the arms
You say I have to fight
I have to keep moving on

(this is your battlefield, this is your, this is your battlefield)

Shell

The time is comin
It's coming soon
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my shoes
I was lost, but now I'm found
And all my troubles are turning around
Oh I feel I've been so close to you
Heavens holding my hand
And I'm ready to break on through
So I'm tearing down the walls inside
Letting go of all my pride
Make it home before the lie
I dont need to hide inside this shell
This shell
No more
I dont know my right from left
And I've been going around this bend
So many miles I have roamed
Lately I feel like I'm coming home
Oh I'm getting so close to you
Heavens lighting a candle and I'm ready
To break on through
So I'm tearing down the walls inside letting go
Of all my pride
Make it home before the lie
I dont need to hide inside this shell
This shell no more
No more
Oh no, no, no, no more, no more
So I'm tearing down the walls inside letting go
Of all my pride
Make it home before the lie
I dont need to hide inside this shell
This shell no more
No more
This shell, this shell, this shell

Harmony

I don't know your name
But it seems that we're all the same
Cause when I sing to you
You are singing back to me
And we sing in harmony
Harmony, we sing in melody
Harmony, harmony
You and I we sing in rhapsody

In this moment
I feel so much lighter
In this moment
I can breathe
Cause what I give to you
Comes right back to me
And we sing in harmony
Harmony, we sing in melody
Harmony, harmony
You and I we sing in rhapsody
I will tell you all of my secrets
I will tell you all of my chores
All my answers, all my answers
Lie in this song that I sing to you
And we sing in harmony
Harmony, we sing in melody
Harmony, harmony
You and I we sing in rhapsody
All the night, all the night
We sing in rhapsody

Seasons Change

Seasons change
They change when you don't seem to notice
All of a sudden, wind grows cold
And then the snowflakes start to fall
It's kinda like when fell in love with you
I, I didn't even notice
When you didn't love me anymore

There's a blue, there's a blue
Sky on my left and a pink sky on my right
And I'm driving down the 92
Where the bridge looks like it touches the sky
And I'm thinking to myself
Where did all the time go
And why can't I remember
What it was like when I was young

Seasons change
And you grow a little older
Nothing stays the same
The past becomes the future

Seasons change
And you grow a little older
No one stays the same
And my heart grows a little colder

I'm standing in a parking lot
Of some suburban shopping mall
And I'm dressed in my work uniform
Making friends with all the vacant cars
And I'm thinking to myself
I gotta make a big decision today
And I hope I choose a better tomorrow
Rather then a better yesterday

Seasons change
And you grow a little older
Nothing stays the same
The past becomes the future

Seasons change
And you grow a little older
No one stays the same
And my heart grows a little warmer

My heart turns a little warmer
Everything turns it turns it turns it turns

Seasons change
And you grow a little wiser
Nothing stays the same
The past becomes the future

Seasons change
Only the cherry blossoms they bloom again
Only the cherry blossoms they bloom again
They will bloom, they will bloom

Light on my Shoulder

It's easier to fall and harder to stand
It's easier to cry and harder to laugh,
And I don't know how, I don't know why
But you're the light on my shoulder when I'm tired

It's easier to run and harder to be still
It's easier to think and harder to feel,
And I don't know how, I don't know why
But you're the light on my shoulder when I'm tired

It's easier to hide and harder to trust
It's easier to hate and harder to love
And I don't know how, I don't know anything
But you're the temper in my voice when I sing

Lucille

Lucille you know how I feel
Put me behind that wheel(x2)
'Cause every waking days just the same damn thing
I get up and go to work and then I sleep again
It's just my days and oh they never change
I was I could just run away
Lucille you know how I feel
Put me behind that wheel (x2)
Even if I have to drive all night I dont care
I just might make my way to new orleans and maybe
I will meet a local boy and we can drown out all the noise
And make a toast to this crazy scene
Lucille you know how I feel
Put me behind that wheel
(just gimme the keys)
Lucille you know how I feel just put me behind that wheel
(i just gotta get outta here gimme the keys)
Cause every waking days jsut the same damnt hing
I get up and go to work and then I sleep again
It's just my days and oh they never change
I was I could just run away
Lucille you know how I feel
Put me behind that wheel (x2)
I dont care about it
I dont wanna hear no more
I got no friends here I just
Gotta get outta here
I know
I just feel it I dont belong here no more
Just gotta get away
(oh oh oh oh)
Lucille you know how I feel
Put me behind that wheel

Petrified to be God-Like

I fight my demons everyday
They come and go they up and flow
Like the ocean
You think you know me and you know me
But you dont know
How scared I am
So I like to make excuses, and I like to blame everyone else
And I like to point my finger at you
Rather then change myself
It's just eachday goes by so fast
I cant seem to grasp them
And I tend to run away from my reflection
You see I am, so petrified, to be god-like
So I like to make excuses
And I like to blame everyone else
And I like to point my finger at you, rather then change myself
Ha-ah, ha-ah...
So I like to make excuses
And I like to blame everyone else
And I like to point my finger at you
Rather then change myself
So I like to make excuses
And I like to blame everyone else
And I like to point my finger at you
Rather then change myself

Recognition

We are just shadows
Crawling through this micro alley
But I am hungry for your love
And I am starving for a better time
But that's all we got here
That's all we know
That's all we've become
Our recognition
Yeah well we be walking in
Some kind of direction
In a line with our right foot first
Yes we're waiting for some material heaven
That will, that will quench our thirst
But that's all we got here
That's all we know
That's all we've become
Our recognition
And I don't know what to do
About holding my head high
I am struggling to breathe through all these
In between times
And I am wondering why
I am wondering why
And I was born into this place
That filters who we are
By what we have done
Yes I know I am a product of this institution
That's all I got yeah
That's all I know
That's all i've become
My recognition oh
And I don't know what to do
About holding my head high
I am struggling to breathe through all these
In between times
And I am wondering why
I am wondering why

All I Want

Too many times, I have wondered
What all trying is for
You come around, I feel so down, I'm gonna drown
Because I know that you've fallen short

But do you know, It doesn't change
The way I feel about you at the end of the day
Because I know
That all I want is what you got
All I want is what you got

And too many times, I have wanted
To turn around and walk away
Knowing deep inside
You can't provide what I need from you anyway

But do you know, It doesn't change
The way I feel about you at the end of the day
Because I know
That all I want is what you got
All I want is what you got

I tell you that I wanna go, but I wanna stay
I tell you that I wanna go, but I wanna stay
I tell you that I wanna go, but I wanna stay
I wanna stay, I wanna stay, I wanna stay
But I know I'm gonna lose myself this way
I wanna stay, I wanna stay, I wanna stay
But I know I'm gonna lose myself this way

But do you know, It doesn't change
The way I feel about you at the end of the day
'Cause I know
That all I want is what you got
All I want is what you got
But this moment is all I've got
It's all I've got

The Bakman Tapes

Feather in the Wind

Looking at the sea again
Tides they rise and fall and then they rise again
My love floats like a feather in the wind
Catch me if you can catch me

And I don't even know just what I'd do
If you found your way back through
I'm clearing all the cobwebs that we weave
Making room for you and me

There's a road to my heart
Follow signs to the right
When you see all the lights
Glowing bright inside the dark you know you've found me

Looking at the cityscape
Tiny little bubbles sparkling in the night
I don't think it's ever too late
To cut the ties that bind us to our lies

And I don't even know just what I'd say
If you found your way back
I'm clearing all the cobwebs that we make
Wishing for you to stay

There's a road to my heart
Follow signs to the right
When you see all the lights
Glowing bright inside the dark you know you've found me

Looking at the sea again
Tides they rise and fall and then they rise again
My love floats like a feather in the wind
Catch me if you can catch me

Good Times

Well he told me he didn't know me that well
If only he knew he was my lion and I was his gazelle
But circumstances drew the line
And I was never his and he was never mine

Well it's a rollercoaster ride
It's a fortune teller's lie
It's a dream that I had in black & white
Make a wish on a star tonight

I shoot him once I shoot him twice
I couldn't help it the bullets flew out of my mouth
And he got angry and all I cared about was being right
Oh, I apologize

'Cause it's a rollercoaster ride
It's a fortune teller's lie
It's a dream that I had in black & white
Hush my darlin sweet dreams tonight

Doo doo doo

People come and people go
I miss you I want you to know
But oh how pride it gets in the way
Though we never speak in my heart you will remain

'Cause all I want is to know for sure
That when I die I lived the best that I could
We are falling down the rabbit hole
So hold my hand and never let it go

And the pages they are always turning
As we watch the towers burning
Well it's fast times it's fucked up times
It's beautiful times and it's good good times
Good times

Doo doo doo

Why

So I leave you wanting more
Cause I've learned over the years
It's better to have you waiting at the front porch 
But why do I close the door 
And why do I leave my love hanging 
And why do I ask myself these questions 
I guess I love you

I row my boat down your river 
And I wish for easy sailing 
But then I come ashore and I'm not like I was before 
So I close the door 
And I leave you wanting more 
And I don't ask myself any questions 
What would I do (Its just a bucket of tears) 
If everything I knew was tossed out the window (Its just a bucket of fears) 
Maybe I would love you like I never loved myself before 

So why do I leave you at the door 
And why do I leave my love hanging 
And why do I ask myself these questions 
And why do I leave you at the door 
And why do I leave my love hanging 
And why do I ask myself these questions 
I guess I loved you

In The Moonlight

When I see you, I see me
Caged heart passion up your sleeve
A music cocoon surrounding you
I know you know it but
How do we show it
There's too much to lose
But tonight we choose

So we dance alone in the moonlight
Just you and I and the stars at night
Falling through the sky to find it

And there's magic in the air
A lotus flower floating out of despair
My winter sun
You are my broken one

Grains of sand are hard to grasp
As the future slips on past
All we've got is this moment
And I say we own it
So we dance alone in the moonlight
Just you and I and the stars at night
Falling through the sky to find it

So we dance alone in the moonlight
Just you & I and the stars at night
Falling through the sky to find it

And I know it can't be sure
But I have to find out more
I'm waiting for the cure

Winter

Oh winter
We are falling
We are hiding
We are hibernating

In the depths of the wake
In the depths of the dark
In the depths of the wake
In the depths of our dreams
And so it seems
That winter comforts me

We're the calm inside the eye of the storm
As we sit by the fire and watch the embers burn
Oh can you feel the warmth inside our cave
As we drink our wine and forget about our days

Winter on my knees
Winter begging please
Winter I will say snow again today
So that we can hide away

Oh winter
While the bears sleep
And the owl hoot
And the wolves cry
And the dogs bark out
And the birds sing loud
I will say what a glorious day
For us to hide away

It's the silence inside the corners of the room
As we sit by the fire and watch the embers burn
Oh can you feel the peace inside our cave
As we drink our chamomile and reminisce about those days

Winter on my knees
Winter begging please
Winter I will say snow again today
So that we can hide away

Oh winter comforts me
Winter on my knees
Winter beggin please
Winter I will say snow again today
So that we can hibernate

Love Is On The Way

The candles they are burning
And we are always learning
Heaven you are watching from above
Angel wings wrap me in your love

But we are marching on and on oh marching
And we grow weary sometimes

Carry me back to where I started from
Carry me back to what I've always known
Carry back to my home and take my troubles away
Love is on the way
Love is on the way

The heart is always churning
And we are always yearning
Oh I won't go no I won't let you down
Ray of light piercing through the clouds

But we are marching on and on oh marching
And we grow weary some days

Carry me back to where I started from
Carry me back to what I've always known
Carry back to my home and take my sorrow away
Love is on the way
Love is on the way

Carry me back to where I started from
Carry me back to what I've always known
Carry back to my home and take my breath away
Love is on the way
Love is on the way…

Love.Love.Love.Love

I'm falling through the cracks
I'm falling through
I hope this feeling lasts
Just hold me through the night
You make me feel alright

Love, love, love, love
Can bring you ‘round
Love, love, love, love
Can turn you upside down

I was afraid to love
I felt like giving up
But you kissed my tears away
You knew just what to say

Love, love, love, love
Can bring you ‘round
Love, love, love, love
Can turn you upside down
Love, love, love, love

I'm falling to the wayside
I can't help myself
I'm falling to the wayside
You're like no one else
My heart is an open door
My heart is
And I've turned my porch light off
I'm falling to the wayside
I think this could be

I asked God for a sign
Would this be the last time
I had to know for sure
My heart could take no more
And red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo
Shone down on you like a halo
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo
Shown down on you it was a rainbow

Love, love, love, love
Can bring you ‘round
Love, love, love, love
Can turn you upside down

Love, love, love, love
Can bring you ‘round
Love, love, love, love
Can turn you upside down

I Do

I don't know what am I doing here
There's a shadow in my place
Maybe now everything will be so clear
You shed light into this empty space

And all I am all I have doesn't even matter now
I can't understand why I feel this way
Bud I do I do

I just want to love you when the goings tough
I just want to hold you when you're not enough
I just want to give you everything I got
I Do I do

I don't know what am I saying here
There's a whole in my heart and it's begging please
Maybe now everything will be so clear
Cause you're all I'll ever need

All I know is I don't want to lose control
I just want to touch your soul
I Do I do

I just want to hold you when the goings tough
I just want to love you when you're not enough
I just want to give you all that I can give
I Do I do

I just want to kiss you in the morning sun
I just want to love you when the day is done
I just want to hold you just because I can
I Do I do

I just want to fold you up into my arms
I just want to listen to your beating heart
I just want to love you because I do
I Do I do

Canopy

Oh how I wish
Two tongues we did not speak
Always broken words
And silence in between

Oh mother, mother you are my canopy
Oh mother, mother you are light filtered through the trees
And there are fields of flowers and dragons in your sleep
You are you are everything to me

Maybe I will pass down
What you gave to me
So much love despite anything else
So much love

Oh mother, mother you are my canopy
Oh mother, mother you are light filtered through the leaves
And there are fields of flowers and dragons in your sleep
You are, you are
You are, you are
You are, you are
Everything to me

Everywhere

(Everywhere EP)

Love you like a bumblebee loves a flower
Love you every minute of every hour
I love you like the desert loves the sun
There's no use denying that you're the only one

Everywhere I go I feel your breath on my skin
Holding me tightly pulling me in
Everywhere I go I hear your voice in my head
Whispering sweet nothings

Love you like the stars love the moon
Oh I love you like a panda bear loves bamboo
I love you like the mermaid loves the sea
There's no use denying that you were made for me

Everywhere I go I feel your breath on my skin
Holding me tightly pulling me in
Everywhere I go I hear your voice in my head
Whispering sweet nothings
Everywhere I turn I see your face in disguise
Staring at me with those pretty blue eyes
Everywhere I go I feel your hand in my hand
And I know that you understand

Love you
Oh I love you
There's no use denying it

Everywhere I go I feel your breath on my skin
Holding me tightly pulling me in
Everywhere I go I hear your voice in my head
Whispering sweet nothings

Everywhere I turn I see your face in disguise
Staring at me with those pretty blue eyes
Everywhere I go I feel your hand in my hand
And I know that you understand

Give me Heart

(One Tree Hill OST)

The water is rushing in
I feel it on my skin
Our boat is sinking now

I wake up
I grab my things as the waves keep rolling in
I ask myself
What's the point
What's the point of it all
What's the point

Give me heart
Just give me hope
Give me love
Just give me warmth
Give me all I never knew
Give me something to hold on to

Time goes by so slow
When you're waiting for a rescue boat
The water's getting cold

And the ocean is not a home
When you feel it all alone
Well it's time to let you go
Let you go
Let you go

All I ever really wanted was to
All I ever really wanted was to
All I ever really wanted was to dream

Give me heart
(Give me heart)
Just give me hope
Give me love
(Give me hope)
Just give me warmth
Give me all I never knew
(Give me all I never knew)
Give me something to hold on to

Give me heart
(Give me heart)
Just give me hope
Give me love
(Give me hope)
Just give me warmth
Give me all I never knew
(Give me all I never knew)
Give me something to hold on to

Give me heart
(Give me heart)
Just give me hope
Give me love
(Give me hope)
Just give me warmth
Give me all I never knew
(Give me all I never knew)
Give me something to hold on to

Here With Me (Two Worlds)

(Everywhere EP)

Caught in the riptide
I was searching for the truth
There was a reason
I collided into you

Calling your name in the midnight hour
Reaching for you from the endless dream
So many miles between us now
But you are always here with me

Nobody knows why
Nobody knows how or when
This feeling begins just like a spark
Tossing and turning inside of your heart
Exploding in the dark

Calling your name in the midnight hour
Reaching for you from the endless dream
So many miles between us now
But you are always here with me

All inside me I find my way back to you

Calling your name in the midnight hour
Reaching for you from the endless dream
So many miles between us now
But you are always here with me

Two worlds in your hands in your heart
It's one universe
You are always here with me

You & I

(Everywhere EP)

I spoke to you again today in a grove of redwood trees
You told me I am beautiful you spoke your truth to me
Inside every winter is a summer waiting to be free
But I was so very tired tired of being me

It's just that I've been waiting for so long
It's just that time keeps moving on and on
But every time I close my eyes I think of you and feel all right
Telling me that everything will be just fine

You and I were meant to be
You and I were meant to see
That you and I we're all we need
To have to hold for eternity

I lay inside the nook of the tallest tree trunk
Felt its branches wrap around me and shower me with leaves of love
I dreamt of strange places and time stood still
And as we spoke I remembered when I was a little girl

You said surrender and let go
You said that I would never be alone
But every time I close my eyes I think of you and feel all right
Telling me that everything will be just fine


You and I were meant to be
You and I were meant to see
That you and I we're all we need
To have to hold for eternity

As our conversation ended and dusk began to fall
I thanked you and prepared to go back into the world
The wind kissed the pine needles humming a melody
And when I think of you I sing it quietly

You and I were meant to be
You and I were meant to see
That you and I we're all we need
To have to hold for eternity

You and I were meant to be
You and I were meant to see
That you and I we're all we need
To have to hold for eternity
