about

*

Built from a bassline & layered with afrobeat influences, this is a funk romp about the human need for comfort, and how that can sometimes stunt our growth.

lyrics

*

We are little lights / dancing in the night /
we need to go out / and feel alive and proud /
we know it's coming / so we need comforting /
oh lordy / why won't you hold me

I could never be satisfied with the story /
oh jordy / you don't know me
I could never be caught out feeling lonely /
oh lordy / why don't you hold me

There's a crack in everything / that's how the light gets in /
magnified by everything they leave behind /
the likes of them we will never see again /
but bits and pieces sometimes shine through the lens /

I could never be satisfied with the story /
oh jordy / you don't know me
I could never be caught out feeling lonely /
oh lordy / why don't you hold me

(oh lordy / nothing's sure / oh lordy)
You have never been really sure /
(walk through the door / oh lordy)
I can see me walking out that door [x2]

I could never be satisfied with the story /
oh jordy / you don't know me
I could never be caught out feeling lonely /
oh lordy / why don't you hold me [x2]
