Demo from the upcoming 2015 album 'Start Again'.

lyrics

Loneliness, I must confess, you know so much about me,
If fate ends it all tonight, hope you’ll be fine without me.
Truth be known you weren’t my friend, much more a fond acquaintance…
I don’t know when we’ll meet again, but trust we will with patience.
I’ve been blessed with many things, but some will never be,
This is all I ask of you, don’t stray too far from me…

Questioning the motives again, knowing you were never really my friend
I hope it hurts to hear the truth, if it does I wanna say it again.
I hated having you around, you were full of negativity,
And I can’t stand to think about all the time I was too blind to see…
And if I had a way to take back all my wasted years,
I would trade them for one day without those selfish fears,
Every day I wake up now is one where I feel free
And even though I know you don’t care I have just jumped off
The trapeze…

Buy me a pen I’ll sing it again, but you can’t just pencil me in
I wish you’d learn to deal with this coz it’s why you haven’t won anything,
Who the hell do you think you are, only showing up coz you need a hand
Tell me where was yours when I needed you, and things had never gone the way I’d planned?
And if I had a way to take back all my wasted years,
I would trade them for one day without those selfish fears,
Every day I wake up now is one where I feel free
And even though I know you don’t care I have just jumped off
The trapeze…

Why should I care, for a friend who was never there?
And a safety net I just couldn’t see
Coz even though I know, that the floor was far below
At least I’ve landed on my feet…

about

Well this is awkward. Biographies are always so full of ego so I'll try and keep it to a minimum! Been doing this longer than most, and often get called the Ska Belle & Sebastian, which isn't such a bad thing... I like to think of my songs as being of the Agora-Socia-Phobi-Ska genre, but it doesn't exist so Ska/Reggae/Rocksteady will have to do. ... more
