about

Silver - A collection of acoustic and more mellow songs we have written and recorded over the last few months. Something a bit different before our forthcoming EP in April 2013.

A massive thank you to Jamie at Lyford Suite Studios for all his hard work on Sleepless, and also to Dan Durant and Jack Margerison for the artwork.

We are heading into the studio on April 1st to start work on a new full band EP with Romesh Dodangoda.

Track Name: Silver
And I left myself out in the cold,
With footprints and history at your door.
And I spoke this shameful tale of old,
And your heart went crashing to the floor.

And one day, I will be laid to rest,
Still running and hiding from the fear inside my chest.
But I'll lay my head upon the same pillow as she,
And count away the hours till I sleep.

And we wrote our future in the dust,
And married to our word above this all.
Yet with these clouds of silver under us,
I could not save us from the fall.

And there's stillness in the heart of winter,
We stand shining silver,
Pray for just a glimmer, glimmer.
Track Name: Rain
I watched my life spill onto the ground,
With confidence, without a doubt,
I had the world in my hands, but like grains of sand,
It fell right through my master plan.

And why do my lungs call out for more?
I swear this was simple once before.
These spiteful dreams have a hold on me,
This childish need to only see.

All of the places and all of these faces I've seen have turned to grey.

So if the cold waves pull me under,
And if the seasons break my stride,
Be kind to a boy whose dreams all fell behind.

All of the places and all of these faces I've seen have turned to grey,
So rain, rain, rain, won't you come another day?

So if the cold waves pull me under,
And if the seasons break my stride,
Be kind to a boy whose dreams all fell behind.
I'll tread this water one more time,
But don't worry about me, I'll be fine.
Track Name: Falter
And darling, I've been faltering with this weight I carry around,
My flaws held up in lights in this empty town.
I never realised what I had, through every burden that I bear,
Never grateful for the comfort of the life we shared.

Oh lord, please give me the faith to be strong,
Cause my saviour has lost me, and I can't carry on.

And darling, I've been wandering through this space inside my head,
My heart it deserts me to rest in her bed.
Cause I belong beneath those sheets, but all the choices that I've made
Have only led us down a path to go our separate ways.

And oh, I'm cold without her to hold.
And I understood that she could make me whole.
And lord, I'll try to find her tonight,
But I know that she deserves better than me in time.
Track Name: Home Sweet Home
Oh the truth is that I'm scared
With this sense of disappointment and forever unprepared.
I've been lost, I've been down, I've been so tired,
And around here there's no relief.

I'm at a standstill from this war with time
Cause I have wasted 20 years of my life.
I've been lost, I've been down, I've been so tired,
And around here there's no release.

And please forgive me for everything I've tried.

Cause Mother, I've strayed far away
From every good word you've ever said
And Father, please don't turn away
These helpless thoughts can never change,
I'll make you proud one day.

And oh my god, I'm floating through life like a corpse.
And every goddamn word you say falls on deaf ears, of course...
Track Name: Sleepless
And I can't find the strength to climb back to my feet,
Cause all the while I've stolen her heart, and brought this to its knees.
Oh fragile eyes, don't fail me now, there's still so much to see.
And I've walked down this same damn road, it never leads to the sea.

And oh, I can't breathe.

And I can't find the strength to close my eyes and sleep,
Cause I'm still stalling and she's been dreaming of something that I can't be.
Oh fragile eyes, don't fail me now, there's still so much to see
But all this time, I've taken our love and cast it out into the sea.

And oh, I can't breathe...

So dream, just dream, there's still so much to see.
And sleep, just sleep, and try to forget me.

And sleep, just sleep, just sleep...
