about

Self recorded over 3 nights in December 2014 at Ben's House, Mike's House and our practice space.

Lyrics:

I'm sailing on a bed of leaves
the colours red and orange bleed
as the sky and ground do meet
another starry night proceeds

I remember this and forget that
the icing on the cake perhaps
for every morning yard we creep
is closer to that noon retreat

So bright you are
my darling spark
you fuse my night and day

The frost sees autumn leaving fast
reminding me of these days that pass
the lights that burn our streets so bright
convince another homely night

I'm waiting with my hat and gloves
the colours white and gold
you're dancing as it floats above
never hint or feel the cold

I'm sailing on a bed of leaves
to you I go with haste and speed
to the careless ones who make believe
of wishful thoughts on Christmas Eve

So bright you are
my darling spark
you fuse my night and day
