House Keys 03:35
House Keys In the blood red dawn wearing streetlight crowns and the amber snow is the only sound lay your jet black coat on the milk white ground spread you arms and legs carve an angel out hope the angel lands where your house keys lie your house is miles and miles reinstate your highness with a helping hand shake your snow jewelled mane brush your black coat down with your open palms drawing down the clouds circling this square now we own this town now we own this town where your house keys lie your house is miles and miles in the blood red dawn wearing streetlight crowns and the amber snow is the only sound your house keys lie your house is miles and miles

Rain-Stripped Rose you’ve got your eye on me I’ve got my hand in your head and when the lights go down that’s when the trouble begins rain stripped the rose shed your clothes at the door all that I’ve done turns to bone how am I to know where you go when you’re gone you just fade in the dust coloured dawn you said “I want you whole” “I only have what I have a head of circling crows that long to lower me down” a thief with swollen hands you drive us both off the map but when the rafters moan I try to bend with the branch bend with the branch rain stripped the rose shed your clothes at the door all that I’ve done turns to bone how am I to know where you go when you’re gone you just fade in the dust coloured dawn you’ve got your eye on me I’ve got my hand in your head and when the lights go down that’s when the trouble begins

There’s A Voice In The Well there’s a voice in the well there’s a voice in the well whose it is I can’t tell but there’s a voice in the well split down the seam I was split down the seam pulled out of my sleep by the voice in my dream fall.........follow me down I rose from our bed the house was stone still I made my way down to the mouth of the well a bent rusted copper coin moon hung low lit the diamond strewn lawn bathed the garden in gold fall.........follow me down I knelt at the edge I was soaked to the bone in the whispering darkness I softly spoke “you go to sleep sweet girl go to sleep I’ll be at your side there’s no need for you to weep”

All Thumbs 03:51
All Thumbs I met you on a spider’s web taught that hire-wire we learned to walk arms stretched out but so as not to fall into these bodies of water whirlpools that could swallow you whole if it doesn’t go down in the storm it gets washed back to shore and it’s cold cold on this side of the road cold on this side of the road the last words you wrote kept my laces tied fingernails clean learned to pilot these heavy machines constantly juggling the coals and the fire still my face has grown harder the face of my dear father it stares back through the eyes in the mirror at mine and it’s cold cold on this side of the road cold on this side of the road the last words you wrote as your coal black eyes clocks tick backwards now sunset is dawn night nourishes worries ignored and when I’m all thumbs the sun’s just a hole in the sky and it’s cold cold on this side of the road cold on this side of the road cold on this side of the road the last words you wrote

To The River 04:41
To The River I could fill every room of your house with a great excuse quote my childhood alibis evidence and reasons why (or) I could be there when you wake drive the whole way through if I leave now I’ll be there when morning comes and we’ll walk the banks of the Ouse first saw you at the river’s edge pockets full of precious stones heavy air hanging near thought you were Virginia’s ghost lightning clears thunder rolls count the miles in between you and I and the river bed sweet Ophelia in the reeds I’ve been wrong in my time leaned hard on you your eyes run for miles run me right through I could be there when you wake drive the whole way through if I leave now I’ll be there when morning comes and we’ll walk the banks of the Ouse if I leave now I’ll be there when morning comes

Second Sun 02:52
Second Sun this old faded house just grew one room too small soon we’ll have to learn how to make do with the cradle in our arms now it’s light when we wake traffic shakes the window frame and I want to wipe the smile off the old clock face now it’s light when we wake traffic shakes the window frame and I want to wipe the smile off the old clock face ‘cos this old faded house just grew one room too small soon we’ll have to learn how to make do with the cradle in our arms now it’s light when we wake broken sleep bellyaches and jackdaws in the chimney well they can stay now it’s light when we wake count the days and weigh each name and stretch the tape on flickbook Saturdays ‘cos this old faded house just grew one room too small soon we’ll have to learn how to make do with the cradle of our arms

Take This Darkness stood on the end of the wind blown pier the last day of the year a sweet tooth honey trap keeps me looking back under our feet where we would lie before the tide rose we blew the embers and watched the starlings dance I knew you were right there’s only so much darkness in a night took your remnants to the ledge the railhead cinder grey words rose off the page I watched them float away under our feet where we would lie before the spring tide we blew the embers and watched the starlings dance swirling sparks circle this advice when you’re in the depth of winter’s chest there’s only so much darkness in a night

Hollow Stones keep the candles close the house gets cold and the fuses blow when the weather takes its toll the cables fall in the heavy snow seasons I know shadows all trade in gold slow as she grows I’ll dissolve in your arms I’ve taped the windows closed to throw a bone in November’s spokes as the light unfolds the winterborn return to hollow stones seasons I know shadows all trade in gold slow as she grows I’ll dissolve in your arms
