Lyrics

Morning Dread

What I said and did last night
Swirls round my head

Morning Dread

Morning Dread

Morning Dread
What I said and did last night
Swirls round my head

Morning Dread

Morning Dread

What I said and did last night
Swirls round my head
What could I’ve said instead?
Morning Dread
Another day
What could I’ve done instead?
Don’t want to leave this bed

Tells me I ain’t good enough
I shouldn’t exist
I must be lazy
Been awake an hour and I’m still in bed
Please get outta my head

Morning Dread
Please get outta my head

Fox & Moon

He says my eyes look like spoons
Silky light reflecting solitary moon
Is it because I love too soon?

Look at her out there alone
She’s comfortable with aloneness
Though most people don’t think so
Seeing crescent where there’s wholeness

His teeth shine in light
From a candle sinking to its wick
Luminous grin, smoky darkness I know
He lusts for something quick

I know I’ve given love too soon
When anxiety curls its dark grip round my moon
But I don’t want no more shallow bites
And for my light a fox I’ll fight

Look at him out there alone
Hiding the depths of his aloneness
Though most people don’t know
For he always has a mistress

I know I’ve given love too soon
When anxiety curls its dark grip round my moon
But I don’t want no more shallow bites
And for my light a fox I’ll fight

I know I’ve given love too soon
When anxiety curls its dark grip round my moon
But I don’t want no more shallow bites
And for my light a fox I’ll fight

Years 9

It’s taken nine years to realise that I’m angry at you
All this time I thought it was pity
And this is not me
It isn’t only me
It’s a part of me
But it rages true

Don’t forget I still need you
Stick around

I want you to stop
To think for a minute
Of what you’re about to do
I wish for that second that you’d held on
To realise that seconds are worth holding onto

Don’t forget I still need you
Stick around
Cos forgiveness is the greatest love
And if you let yourself face it
Forgiveness will find you

So hold onto that second
And in another second
You’ll realise that it’s been a minute or two
And a life of light lies in front of you

Don’t forget I still need you
Stick around
Cos forgiveness is the deepest love
And if you let yourself face it
Forgiveness will find you

So don’t turn to the darkness
Once you’re gone
You can’t come back
Though my words come too late
I’m a woman living in black

Don’t forget I forgive you
And I’ll stick around
Cos that’s the deepest love
You’ve gifted from the ground

Don’t forget I forgive you
And I’ll stick around
