about

The fourth track released from my upcoming album, bed.

lyrics

Should I be shocked to wake at night
To stare out of the window and see my face in the sky
And should I be shocked to realise that you
Are just as illusory as that aforementioned image of me
And that that's why I need
I need to hear that one word
To make it all feel real
I need to hear that one word
That one word
That one word
That one word

Men and women go two by two
Highly in agreement - does that exclude me and you
If they are light then are we the dark
Kicked off of the ark to swim forever in search of lighthouse beams
Because that's how it seems
I need to hear that one word
To make it all feel real
I need to hear that one word
That one word
That one word
That one word

Did I ever really know you
Right at the start when everything was new
Now you're just a mirror in the dark
An unspoken remark
A space on the ark

I need to hear that one word
That one word
That one word
That one word
