about

BASICALLY, Garageband have updated their app to include loads of new instrument sounds, to the point that the music I make on it from now will sound different to the point where it wouldn't work on an album with the songs I'd already recorded to go towards an upcoming album- so, because of that, I've decided to release the 5 songs I've recorded in the last few months as their own E.P. Hopefully it'll work as a nice bridge between the old and new music! I did always want to just release a little EP anyway, so it's nice that I now have- Enjoy!

Track Name: Boats
All my friends families arrived in on ships
Were pushed out on their tip-toes
From homes in which they couldn't have stayed
They wouldn't have wanted to
It's worth less than a surname change or two

All of our families arriving on time
All those who didn't can't follow their lines down to me
They've all been cut off anyway
It's worth more than memorials today

And they cannot go home ever
Not since the towns and their people were levelled
When evils are done repeating themselves
We'll be okay

Now all our bodies
They are still tethered
Like the boats to the shores of south, east, and central Europe
Strung to shore wherever you look
It says so in minds and in books

Packed up their things again
Moved west away from them
Don't want to feel the weight of an exodus saying they told me so
So I know where I'll go
Shouting that this is my home
Shouting that I'm in in my home

But they cannot go home ever
Not since the towns and their people were levelled
When evils are done repeating themselves

They will not go home ever
Not since the towns and their people were levelled
When evils are done repeating themselves
We'll be okay
Track Name: (She's) Never Gonna Love Again
Lets arrange to pack ourselves like tinned sardines
And work out what she really means
When she says how good she hasn't been
Looks like she's never gonna love again
If she gets the chance to love again

Something's strange
It's like she's been away for years
And she said she'd be right back from his
His shouting over silly things
She's never gonna love again
If she gets the chance to love again

Something's changed
She's messy and disorganised
And watching are this pair of eyes
She does her best
He doesn't try
She's never gonna love again
No, she's never gonna love again

She's never gonna love again
Never gonna love again
Never gonna trust again
never gonna want again
If she's ever gonna love again

She'll never be okay again
Always wandering if it's when
She can have it back again
Childhoods don't come back again
If she's never gonna love again

It's not okay
She keeps on saying nothing's wrong
But something seemed up all along
Whether or not she is just holding on
She's never gonna love again
If she gets the chance to love again

Let's make way
A sad procession coming through
But I just don't know what to do
So I turn my eyes away from you
You're never gonna love again
You're never gonna love again

So what else is there to do then?
If you're never gonna love again
Gonna end up with him then
Never coming back again
She won't get the chance to love again

She's never gonna love again
Unhappy until the end
Probably having kids by then
Waiting on some bad news when
She knows she's never gonna love again

She's never gonna love again
Never gonna love again
Never gonna trust again
never gonna want again
If she's ever gonna love again

Whats the use?
If she's never gonna love again
Never gonna trust again
Never gonna want again
If she's ever gonna love again
Track Name: Post-Millenial
I heard that London was on high alert
Since all of the statues had begun to burn
And were swallowed in the sea
The world changed in an instance for me
'Cause it made the world finally one
Under the water of what had become
Everyone was shaking
Nowhere felt the same
Submerged by pain

When videos of attacks come I skip to the middle
Don't like it when the bad things start break my bubble
I don't know why I thought my shielding was perennial
I'm feeling post-millenial

I heard that some people hadn't learnt
That playing with firearms means you'll get hurt
Everyone that I know has had something to say
I saw that they were sharing it online yesterday
It made the world finally one
Through fear of being scared and seeing evil had won
Most people were respectful but some had wrong ideas
Consumed by fear

When videos of attacks come I skip to the middle
Don't like it when the bad things start break my bubble
I don't know why I thought this shielding was perennial
I'm feeling post-millenial

I get everything I need from my laptop screen
I don't want effects on me
Photos, they are bound to me
They're on my TV screen
I can do nothing but place me there now

When videos of attacks come I skip to the middle
Don't like it when the bad things start break my bubble
I don't know why I thought my shielding was perennial

When videos of attacks come I don't want to discriminate
Don't like it when the only guarentee is hate
I know I don't want that attitude to perennial
I'm feeling post-millenial

I got told some news yesterday
I got it just early online anyway
I sat and watched events unfold
'Cause people were dying was what I'd been told
It made all my problems seem so small
So tell others you love them, if you love them at all
For when they're not there anymore
Track Name: Do You Know?
Oxfordshire village green
She wakes up to a day she never thought she'd see
Crisp light rolling in
Her eyes are open to a dream

Another day she gets to see
Unhappy family, Christmas tree
Cats and games and miscellany

But do you know
That you are loved
You are loved
You're loved
Do you know
Do you know
Do you know
You're loved

It makes her want to scream
But mother cries so frequently
Says his drinking tore her up to smithereens

But you are bigger than this
You're worth more than you've been given
You've spent so long getting better
You're not gonna let this one roll you over

But do you know
That you are loved
You are loved
You're loved
That you are loved
You are loved
You're loved
Do you know
Do you know
That you're loved

You are bigger than this
You're worth more than you've been given
And you spent so long getting better
You're not gonna let this one roll you over

Oxfordshire village green
She wakes up to a day she never thought she'd see
Track Name: Victorians
It's Camden market and New York City
Postcards from people with fancy writing
Well it was different then
And did they know
Their letters would end up here on show
Between Kiss patches and drug paraphernalia

Splayed out on tables, oh what a pity
Photos of women by the bathing machines on the beach
A date signed: 1880
Oh where did they go to place that picture here
Between anime dresses and vintage dungarees

I hope they remember us
Like victorians smiling in photographs
That we're too sweet to discard
And impressionist will marvel
At the impressions we've left on them
So they'll commit us to canvas
Or print us on paper
So when future kids see us it'll make them feel better
Woah-oh

That's two for £10, and it's kinda shitty
Bet those smiling swimmers had never seen a city
Let alone spent that much on a used postcard

And if that's the way its to be
And in 100 years some shop gets a picture of me and you then...

I hope they remember us
Like victorians smiling in photographs
That we're too sweet to discard
And the cubists will marvel
At how we're not condensed to grids
So they'll commit us to canvas
Or print us on paper
So when future kids see us it'll make them feel better
Woah-oh

I hope they remember us
Like victorians smiling in photographs
That we're too sweet to discard
And impressionist will marvel
At the impressions we've left on them
So they'll commit us to canvas
Or print us on paper
So when future kids see us it'll make them feel better
Woah-oh
