Written in five minutes on a borrowed tuned down guitar and using only two chords, this song ended up taking a year to find its feet! I hope you like it. It was mostly recorded at Cook St and I got to play my 100 year old piano. The drums were recorded at Dalston Studios in fifteen sweet minutes. Thank you Jules.

Verse I

And some perfect love
Came raging into my life
I’m not wavering, not wasting time
I’m not faking, I’m not afraid this time,
To say that you are mine.
Baby, I’ll probably say you’re mine

And I ran to the river with a poem up my sleeve
And I crashed into the water there to capture all the tears
From my waking heart
My breaking eyes
My memories of your sweetness
Come crying, crying for the sky to come down and rescue me
You were brave. Never afraid.
We were never to be the woods for the trees, for the trees
When you think too much gotta break it up with heart
Some blind heart
To love x 6

Verse II
Some perfect love
The waking night will know where you’re bound.
Will know where you’re bound
You fell in love and you said it loud
Never thought you could be so wild
But nothing could ever stop you from being so alive.

I’ll find a better way to love
Than through a bleeding heart melting in the river.
