Recorded in one evening at Donal's gaff in London - vocal takes done outside, hence unexpected planes, cats and doors. Check Donal out here:


Far, Still, Wide
Oceans, hours spent working it all out
Taking our time, saying "it's fine"
Look with your eyes, but still you go blind
Can't you see how this world goes without me?

Sleep, heal, breathe
Move, push, fight
Standing up straight, facing it all
taking it slow - it starts with a crawl
Can't you see how this world goes without me?

And will I go mad chasing down something that I had?
And will I be guided by the fear in me and lose it all before I see?
And will I have the guts to say "I'd really like it if you'd stay"?
And will I be foolish for eternity?
What's wrong with you?!
Why are we far, still wide?
