about

An acoustic EP dreamed up over the autumn, drawing inspiration from the flamenco-playing pixies of Madrid, the wonderful English countryside, cuddles, the human experience of shadow-fishing in the depths of the psyche and the ancient runes of Northern Europe.
All songs recorded in one grey day, in a chilly and wonderful barn in mid Devon.

Track Name: You Can't Hide from Sunlight
Inside a hand of mine
You'll find a thousand lines
All of the endless stories untold,
All the times I've tried
We're all a scattering
Of love and broken things
So when the sunrise comes for you be sure to sing

If time meets time, maybe he would ask him for a little more
and time beats life, you've gotta lay it down, extract your story
I might ease my frail head and lay my thoughts all down to sleep
But when the morning comes to get me I'll be on my feet

And oh, you can't hide from sunlight forever
Make a hole in your heart and call some in now
You play the cards open up your skin now
And oh, you can't hide from sunlight forever
Make a hole in your heart and call some in now
You play the cards, open up your skin now

So what keeps your head in the clouds
When the world on your shoulders won't stop pushing you down
Like there's a limit to the daylight, don't cry
This will all come back around
We feel with our insides
Faces never shining up enough that skin gets some of that dim light
Sometimes our insight walks the thin line but
You'll find your delight only in time

and if time meets time, maybe he would ask him for a little more
and time beats life, you've gotta lay it down, extract your story
I might ease my frail head and lay my thoughts all down to sleep
But when the morning comes to get me I'll be on my feet

And oh, you can't hide from sunlight forever
Make a hole in your heart and call some in now
You play the cards open up your skin now
And oh, you can't hide from sunlight forever
Make a hole in your heart and call some in now
You play the cards, open up your skin now
Track Name: Sowilo
Sowilo, Sowilo
As above so below
Sowilo, Sowilo
Move me slow

Sun's only one step ahead, only one breath
One breath to the next, the river said
With arms of the highest of clouds, running down from my mouth
By the water you will be blessed
Allow me to paint a picture using your mixture
You can expect a river filled with emptiness
And the sky moving hope through my breast, arrows of red
Penetrate with my strength

Sowilo, Sowilo
As above so below
Sowilo, Sowilo
Move me slow

I will paint my love on the pavement
I will paint my love on the pavement
I will paint my love, I will paint my love,
and brave it

And I will let my heart do the sun's work,
When it's hurting I lay hope to the ground
Dirt speaks in a rhythm with the setting stars
I am a planet, and though the spinning feels too fast
We can dream, but it never keeps me delicate
Reach down to my shadow and surrender it
Carry with me all the colours in the gallery,
Oh this humanity is stepping out to balance me
And it's like, when the heat grows, and I've got no day
And my memory's telling me of another way
Of healing, of freedom, soul seeking only stole my soul away when my mind stars to fray
But I've got time, I've got light
The sun is gonna be on my side
And I look at the river and I can't see the ground,
And I think ooh.. what a joy I've found

Sowilo, Sowilo....

I will paint my love on the pavement.....

Sowilo, as above so below
Do you know
When the lights go out
Will you be able to see so?
Sowilo, as above so below
Do you know
When the lights go out
Will you be able to see so, just breathe oh

Sowilo, Sowilo...
Track Name: Madness & Time
Cinnamon-tickled sinning with a fickle fin in the thin ocean of dusk
Sitting in fission, dripping, trickle into the vision of what we can trust
Picking the flowers of living and giving a limb to the elders of dust
itching magician, go fishing for pieces of shadow I must

Folk come to awaken
Ghosts with a thousand faces
I am brutally naked
Searching for flowers in the stream

Down into the city, so dark and so pretty, insidious lust
Out of the ashes they crash in, so tantalising in hysterical crush
Nails and ink, we sail and sink til the metals all melt into rust
Way down, go fishing for pieces of shadow we must

Folk come to awaken
Ghosts with a thousand faces
I am brutally naked
Searching for flowers in the stream

And ooh, we cross the line
Through madness and time
Track Name: Silver & Green
Silver and green on the water
Come rest your bones with me
And I can sing us to serenity
Baby rest with me

Let's find the sun
In eachother's arms
I gathered all the sky for you to see
If we're high enough to dream
We could join the clouds it seems
And I've found
Each and every second if you just put it down
Sings songs to me with ease

Silver and green on the water
Come rest your bones with me
And I can sing us to serenity
Baby rest with me

Why waste time?
We are cursed with laziness and lullabies
But time is only up our sleeves
If we could all just let it be
We could kiss the twilight
And we've no patience for the way round the water
We've all gotta find a solution of living in the way we oughta
But for now let's catch some sleep

Silver and green on the water
Come rest your bones with me
And I can sing us to serenity
Baby rest with me
