Todays Artist (born December 23, 1984), is an American alternative singer and songwriter and pianist. Her debut album, One Cell in the Sea, was released on July 17, 2007, and peaked at number 91 on the Billboard 200 chart. She has been in the charts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, and France, among other countries. Her music has been featured on television shows, and on the soundtrack of the film Sleepwalking.

She has often referred to the literary influences on her music. More recently she has disclosed that she is also pursuing a secondary career as a writer. In an interview, she said she was writing a children’s story in the “Narnia” tradition, a fantasy featuring animals. In an interview with Ladygunn Magazine, she revealed the title of her fantasy adventure book to be “Three Sails and the Family Moss.”

Todays song is the first single released from the debut album One Cell in the Sea. The single experienced success in Europe.

The single was a huge success in Slovenia, being one of the most popular songs of 2008 there, along with Duffy’s Mercy. However, Slovenia has no official singles chart as singles are not sold there. On all unofficial airplay-only charts, the song reached number one.

  1. Alison Sudol – A Fine Frenzy doing “Almost Lover” and if you think this just popped into my head, well, I’ll let you go on thinking that. Seriously, I look forward to the mp3. I may have youtubed it out of curiosity before then, however.

    Almost Over

    Your fingertips against my skin
    The palm trees swaying in the wind in my chase
    You sang me Spanish lullabies
    The sweetest sadness in your eyes
    Clever trick

    I never wanna see you unhappy
    I thought you want the same for me
    Goodbye my almost lover
    Goodbye my hopeless dream
    I’m trying not to think about you
    Can’t you just let me be?
    So long my luckless romance
    My back is turned on you
    Should’ve known you’d bring me heartbreak
    Almost lovers always do

    We walked along a crowded street
    You took my hand and danced with me
    In the shade
    And when you left you kissed my lips
    You told me you’d never ever forget these images
    No

    I’d never wanna see you unhappy
    I thought you’d want the same for me
    Goodbye my almost lover
    Goodbye my hopeless dream
    I’m trying not to think about you
    Can’t you just let me be?
    So long my luckless romance
    My back is turned on you
    Should’ve known you’d bring me heartbreak
    Almost lovers always do

    I cannot go to the ocean
    I cannot try the streets at night
    I cannot wake up in the morning
    Without you on my mind
    So you’re gonna and I’m haunted
    And I bet you are just fine
    I’ll make it there
    You walk right in and out of my life

    Goodbye my almost lover
    Goodbye my hopeless dream
    I’m trying not to think about you
    Can’t you just let me be?
    So long my luckless romance
    My back is turned on you
    Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
    Almost lovers always do

    1. Sev, go upstairs “Forum” in the main menu. Under forum you will see “Profile” in the pull down menu. Hit “Proflie”.
      On the new page that opens, then go to “Profile Pic”. There you can upload your pic….
      Also please have a look at “Personal” and “Preferences” so that you can set who sees your wall and profile infos etc..
