about

One day, not so long ago, things began to change. I ate a lot of hazelnuts in my friend's car and felt more alive and genuine than I had in months. I wanted to kiss everyone and be everywhere. I'm concerned a small moth may be trapped in my stomach.
These 6 songs all deal with my relationships, and relationship with love.
I hope you enjoy them.

Track Name: Charmed
I had always pictured my life by somebody's side,
Sweet domesticity preluded by a desperate wanting need,
Unquestioning I had believed that love would find my in the city,
And though not simple I would know it and rise to what was asked of me

But for years that little mill inside my chest has layen so still.
Despite sweet words, from sweet suitors, it would never turn

Your words carry weight, unexpected on the paddles of mill's sails
They're fairly turning now, there's warmth spreading out, I hide my face
away while the,
Ghosts of your clever fingers tips, walk the breadth of my hips for days after
And you're cat-like, bright brown eyes are pulling me close.

and I~~ I am being charmed
and I~~ I am being charmed

Like a diver breaking water, I can feel the splash of heat
Upon recitation of your spells like 'I wish you were here'
I had been unwillingly impervious to these glib things
Could it be my little fawn heart, is finally breathing?

Your words carry weight, unexpected on the paddles of mill's sails
They're fairly turning now, there's warmth spreading out, I hide my face
away while the,
Ghosts of your clever fingers tips, walk the breadth of my hips for days after
And you're cat-like, bright brown eyes are pulling me close.

and I~~ I am being charmed

Someone call the non-believers, priests and unicorns
I hope I wont need exorcism, but you have been warmed
Oooohhhhhh - this again.
Oooooohhhhh - gosh it's been a while,
Oooooohhhhh - gosh it's been a while.
Track Name: Stowaways
In the turns of your limbs I feel at home
Your skin as soft as ribbon satin, your hair's as light as gold
Though the oceans turn more tumultuous, and the thunder grows more bold
Down beneath the wooden deck we are safe inside the hold

Unapologetic and alive we fled our angry adolescence,
But still stuffed in all our nooks and crooks are guilt and, fear and, worry
All hollowed out, we make sweet sounds when we push our lips together
Those thoughts of yours that sink you down I will free from where they tether.

Each breath we share is dangerous, with its dizzy dark desire,
For now, I long to hold you close even when the people gather
We are betrayed, by the ease with which the sand meets the water
As I'm soothed to sleep by your voice I only hope that we will weather this

But I hear, the crashing, of dark waves upon the bow!
And the, splintering of beams that have held so strong till now!
The oceans have come to claim us!
The oceans have come to claim us!

But It is us, here, it is us among the wrecks
It is us, here, and we're alive among the wrecks
Track Name: Forfeit
My feet are cold, it is the floor,
the kitchen's always freezing in the morning,
it's so quiet here, can you hear the prickling of the
whisps upon my strong forearms rising up in protest,
seems i have the strength to leave you in bed,
i can hear the sleepy creaking cross the hall.

You cannot hurry love and I was so patient
Vigilant for sparks and starry kisses, so desperate
The cure for my irrelevance lay in an ever-changing person
So as close as I had yet get I was not about to forfeit, to forfeit

In my mind, my psychic print is still leaning on the cupboard,
I can see her heaving, gasping air in, trying to soothe the pounding in her chest
I hope you don't mean harm that you don't know what you're doing
Because when you blame me, try and persuade me I can feel a burning in my chest

I know that you really believe that you love me
I tried so hard to find those feelings, within me
I had so much hope for this, when our trust was still unbroken
But as close as I had yet to get, I had to my myself first I had to forfeit!

I know now, what I am already owed!
I know now, I have never been less than whole
All of the good ones fall in love, all of the righteous fall in love
Society love to tell us, but I am not less than any one
And I am not, less than anyone...
And I am not. Someone else's other half!
Track Name: Sandstone
Do you still see my face in the moon?
Do you still see my skin in the sandstone?
Cause I do, I do..
I see you.

And when I think about the things, that we wont do anymore
About the things I will never see or feel again with you
I am lost, I am lost..

but this will all pass, this will all pass
this will all pass, this will all pass
I've boiled a million kettles, to fill all of my water bottles
This wont be easy or quick, but it is what we need
I'm sweating you out of me, I'm sweating you out of me
I'm sweating you out of me, I'm sweating you out..

Oh, please don't make this harder for me.
Please don't make this harder..
Track Name: Tree Rings
When I lie down with you,
It feels like i'm lying in a tree ring,
Your fibres reaching out for me, are holding me close.

And when we manage to get up on our feet
We leave behind us all our rings,
And in my bed they will grow as we grow and get stronger and softer

You're so sweet, you're like a little clementine
You're bowing your branches for me
And i'm flustered, i am red

Drip drop drop,
Little by little you're filling up my little cup,
and growing, I am confident and glowing

I am in awe of us, how have we done this?
Oh I am in awe of us, how have we done this ?

Well I bury my face in the softness of your belly,
I kiss at you blindly and hold you so close to me,
The pain in my chest is only transitory,
And I'm crying with your arms around me,
And I'm crying I'm in awe of our bodies...
Track Name: Hazelnuts
I want to know you like I know the night,
Wont be there when I wake up in the morning.
I need to know, that this wont change a thing,
that you could still care much less about me.

I don't know how - I ended up with this heart,
I don't know how - I ended up with this heart.
I must be the most hopeless romantic of all
Cause I will never fall, and I know this!

Yes I've tried boys and I've tried girls, but noone could melt this
heart of mine.
And though they'll say I'm still young, I can feel this echoing for a lifetime!

Now come on you're a doctor, tell me what is wrong with this heart?
You have studied the world, now tell me what is wrong this heart?
Come and tell me straight now, is there a heart worth saving here..
Cause if there is! We'd better act quick!

Quick, quick, quick...

Before I forget just how this felt
Wanting you, wanting you,
Wanting you, wanting you back!
