The first single from my upcoming EP 'Tales From the Sugar Sea.' Which will be released on 11th November on Little Witch records.

lyrics

Have you heard about the girl who learnt how to pull the sun down
but never learned how to hold to anyone?
She made the night wait at the sides
while she tried to find something nice to hide under
oh if only to hide for a little while.
But I’ve heard that even in her world
something like miracles can occur
all you had to, all you had to do was touch her.

And will you remember me
when your bones start to ache and creak?
I’ll exist in the screech of the rusty hinges
I sleep in the space in between
and I’m close enough
but you’re still out of reach.

Have you heard about the girl who learnt how to tie herself to the ceiling
but never learnt to say what she was feeling?
I guess she thinks that must be the reason you never came
never got the meaning
she only wanted to see you again

But I’ve heard that even for girls like her
reluctant miracles sometimes do occur
all you had to, all you had to do was touch her.

And will you remember me
when your bones start to ache and creak?
I’ll exist in the screech of the rusty hinges
I sleep in the space in between
and I’m close enough
but you’re still out of reach.

I thought by now you might have come down
because there'll come a time that I wont be around
I hope what you're looking for can be found
because there'll come a day that I wont be around
I thought by now you might have come down,
there's still always a frown despite 'golden brown'
I hope what you're looking for can be found,
but would you even notice if I let go now?
