And for the second installment of our acoustic lead up to NYE's gig we bring you 'Dance of the Lotus'. We released this recently on ltd exclusive vinyl for Record Store Day along with 'The Better Me'. 'I danced until I fell behind and forgot the steps I loved' - Got a feeling that might happen this NYE! ;) xTxJxFx

Since we are doing a special acoustic set on NYE in Boston we thought we'd share some acoustic moments this week. First up our cover of David Bowie's 'Ashes to Ashes' from our e.p 'Sleep is Day'. Miss you Bowie and we'll certainly be raising a glass on the night. Enjoy! TjF xxx

If you don’t have plans yet for NYE, come join us at City Winery Boston. We’ll be celebrating our back catalogue including this holiday heartbreaker. Tickets here: Don’t dread this dawn Nostalgia sweeps on this day Like a sharpened claw But for now Let’s decorate ourselves Let’s look to the change And the gift I’m about to give Pale, moonlit sky raise in my fierce head and soothe it with lullabies How much sadness wrapped In roots the sadness hides A cross ticks the box Midnight service to hide behind My beerdrunk soul is sadder than a hundred dead christmas trees To pass the time that’s all To pass the time with you Because You make my spirit full.

I’m really not alone I’m not the kind of girl that does forlorn No place I want to be No one I want to see 
Everything good will always change its way Oh I’m better on my own If I dig up buried thoughts Will it make that song play again If you see that I’m outside That won’t make me come in Oh I could make you feel so very loved I can make you feel so far away You can’t give me what you’re feeling We can hideaway in dreams but it’ll end the same with me Oh I know This town keeps moving but my minds like a clear night Just think about you, the choices in my hand There’s a shadow passing over our clock There’s so much of you that I’ve already lost. You can’t give me what you’re feeling We can hideaway in dreams but it’ll end the same with me Oh I know We go forward pay the past Do you think people fade things fast Oh let it go Oh you can’t give me what you're feeling We can hideaway in dreams but it’ll end the same you see oh I know It was our hands that cut the stem Have we learnt anything since then, I don’t know This here’s not mine a stranger came by I held, I tried No more, too near You can talk to the crowds, I can’t wait here These hands now cold no gentle unfolding, unfolding it’s too old. Oh this blink that cursed the eye I’ve taken mine and I know it feels strange , but now I’m letting go. You Can't Give Me -

Do I miss What I can’t get right It brings me down, down for a long time Then you leave in a sunny way I’m at the window, willing you to wave You think you’re caught And I know it’s sad but the absence is all we had Do I miss the sentimental purrs that keep me dreaming, about the world.
Day and night, my soul they only graze What are we feeling, we can’t shake Now I know what this means I know what you mean to me. Absence -
