Grey Area 04:41
It's getting dark so early You and me We're not even dressed You and your hair so curly Me in my thermal vest Please don't, please don't start I know you can't feel my heart I need to find my way back from here Fire smoulders away through grey And now I'm making myself unclear Time soldiers away through fear It's getting so much better Since we let our ghosts fight And now we're joined together Sometimes deeper than we like Please don't, please don't go on I know you can't be the one I need to find my way back from here Fire smoulders away through grey And now I'm making myself unclear Time shoulders the blame It's all gone grey It's so easy to say But not easy to stay You won't live forever So let's live today I wanna face the weather I'm gonna chase the wolves away Feels so, feels so wrong You'll only miss it when it's gone I need to find my way back from here Fire smoulders away through grey And now I'm making myself unclear Time soldiers away through grey

Moths 02:55
Saw a moth trapped under glass Give a few desperate flaps And then collapse Pressing its head against the wall To be near that chink of light Well you're a cloud without a face Running backwards in this Endless egg and spoon race Until you disappear without a trace As the earth moves into space Do you have a little bit of love inside you? Nobody seems to know Do you have a little bit of faith they'll find you though? We all got time to kill Time to be still If all your smiles won't fill the gap Will we just snap? Ninevah why can't you sleep Digging up these thoughts They're way too deep You'll never find the answers that you know Til you learn to let them go And you're alone amongst the stars The smell of darkness Distant murmur of cars Well throw an open window on your fright Take a deep breath in to night Do you have a little bit of love inside you? Nobody seems to know Do you have a little bit of faith they'll find you though? We all got time to kill Time to be still If all your smiles won't fill the gap Will we just snap?

about

things come together and fall apart
heart full, heart empty
sad longing pierces the dawn of open space


Open Heart circus was recorded in London, Frome & Krakow, mixed by Szymon Piotrowski and mastered by Ace of Skunk Anansie. It is an honest dissection of my awkwardly human heart from chaos to simplicity and back again.
