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 -

Pushing the shame off my back Telling the soul walk tall and don’t lose track Tipping it out of my shoes It’s weighing me down, it’s weighing me down Leaving the side of my house Looking to find a friend, then leave again Cutting the wires within, so I’ll follow you now where do I begin. The better me is you I don’t mind The better me is you I know why. Quick they’re locking the gates We were going nowhere anyway I’m stepping with the sky but I can’t get close I just circle wide What you mean to me I only whisper, whisper to the trees You make space out of my side Oh you can only try, you can only try There’s nothing behind us That says I didn’t try I have to live with me

Across all this land I can’t see what’s real And the sun has bleached, the wind has bent what you were feeling Is this the way it goes Turning nothing into waterfalls Sink in the heavy flow I can’t deny what the shore will wash up I’m waiting, I’m waiting What For How long am I on trial Cos I’ve been good and bad. Why don’t you run the mountain and let go of the path Take your bleeding heart and go back to the start, I’m staying here I’m down on my luck, but I know which ways up I’m not taking my turn this way So when the winter breaks Throw your mind this way And when the bridges fall And the sun it fades I see the burning lake Oh thats you and me I see we’re all the same What For on YouTube -

Little lists and scraps that keep me moving Another meal and play that song to pick you up Over time you think the days lose colour Don’t sound tired by the promises All in all there’s something missing All in all there’s something you can do I won’t play it down or pretend I haven’t found Because all in all there’s something in you You took me in when I couldn't run anymore See all hands pointed to a faded high Those greying eyes, need new air, new life For you to see again with your head held high. All in all there’s so much missing All in all there’s nothing you can do I won’t play it down or pretend I haven’t found Because all in all there’s something in you All in all there’s something in you I forgot where I was Don’t answer me Help me stay close There’s one little part of me that doesn’t want to let go It’s easier to be the old me I’m tired of staring down the price of bravery In the most adventurous gloom let them fight it out and find you Off you go make rain and thunder again You can carry yourself you’ve seen all this sky. This frontier, only your footprints were real and tonight I’ll be your friend Wherever you are Wherever you are A stray ’til the end.

Cicada (Land on your Back) Look in the eye and watch the door The mountain is humble and it’s yours Three reds in the rock, their secrets ring A cross in the sand will let you in Darkness and light Nothing to choose Follow them all until it soothes Land on your back and flap my wings It’s not for the sleeping that I sing Cicada Be my witness Hungry to see a clear road Sweep us away into the flow Handle the curse and be the “what you want” Riding the storm here comes the turn Why do I cry The wind it knows That nature is law, no man it grows So show me a way that I can leave The journey begins when I believe Listen on YouTube:
