Do you remember that night baby?
That night it felt like we were fighting and I had all this sadness and anger inside and I couldn’t, I couldn’t hide it and you saw it but we had all these friends over and I didn’t know what to do so I decided to go out alone, get drunk

And I know it was stupid and it felt like I was going a bit crazy when I said to myself: when I get out of this terrible haze
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know

Is this love or a battlecry?
Oh, is this love or a battlecry?

Is this desire that drive me away or inspire me
I know it ain’t easy, I know it ain’t easy but

Is this love or a battlecry?
Oh, is this love?

I will change I will not
I will fit you like a glove
I will fight you if I must

I don’t know what fucked up image I got of love or life
All I know is I gotta loosen, I gotta loosen
I gotta loosen the grip on the knife

Maybe I just got such a melodramatic mind that I take everything so hard sometimes but maybe I was, maybe I was, maybe I was

Maybe I was inspired by too good a cry
Too good a cry, too good a cry, too good a cry

Like Rickie Lee Jones, like Nina Simone
Like Cat Power’s howl or Benjamin’s moan

Is this love or a battlecry?
Oh, is this love or a battlecry?

Blow the horn, light the torch
Blow the horn, light the torch!
You’re on the battlefield
Battlefield of love

Mone Berlin, Germany

Gut-wrenching, mesmerising performances drenched in authenticity. Mone provokes and soothes in the same breath. Her thought- evoking subjects – muses, lost loves, power struggles, morality and sex – all convalesce on stage in deep primal self-expression.

Mone is currently working on her debut album, set for release in fall 2020.
