about

This song is a little bit of a departure from my normal Grasslands songs and is a bit more sombre, folky and lo-fi. It has a pumping drum sample that pulses through the song like a slow heart beat.

The lyrics are about loss and change and were partly inspired by a performance I did for Refugee Week.

lyrics

Passing time and changing phases
The candle burns, but never dies
The perfect pressure is so hard to find
Enclose the air, reduce the space
Trails of slides and scales fall behind
The wake of the fall shapes the mind

Waiting for you to see
Things you will never see
I don’t know where to go now

Waiting for you to see
Things you will never see
I don’t know where to go now

Grasping things that never stay
Just sit back and watch them drift away
Holding on just makes it worse
The only options are reversed

Waiting for you to see
Things you will never see
I don’t know where to go now

Waiting for you to see
Things you will never see
I don’t know where to go now

Waiting for you to see
Things you will never see
I don’t know where to go now

Everything that you make
Everything that you take
Every sea that you swam
Every hole that you made
Everything that you said
Everything

Everything that you gain
Everything that you lost
Every road that you crossed
Every key that you turned
Everything that you said
Everything
