lyrics

Intro Chorus
I know I'm not as soft as rain
Don't say always the things you'd like me to say
But if this life began with a shout
Bang big enough to blow the cobwebs out
Then with this breath I'll sing
Open your doors
Let the living in

Verse 1
Cos it began with a sound
Give me your cry, kick, moan
Give me your soft thump of heart
Spun from the same thread that wove this life

Verse 2
It all began with a sound
And too much left yet to say
A fear of going unheard
Fear of fading away out of sight out of mind

Chorus 2
I know I'm not as soft as rain
Don't say things you'd like me to say
But if this life began with a hot shout
Big enough to blow the cobwebs out
Then with this breath I'll sing
Open your doors
Let the living in

Verse 3
It began with a sound
It didn't ask or hesitate
Unapologetic and proud
Pulled up a chair took a place at the table

Verse 4
Yes it began with a sound
A high decibel
Loud at all the wrong times
Cos it's dying to tell you
The secret
Trying to tell you
The secret
Of the voices in it's head

Chorus 3
I know I'm not as soft as rain
Don't say things you'd like me to say
But if this life began with a hot shout
Big enough to blow the cobwebs out
Then with this breath I'll sing
Open your doors
Let the living in

Vocals and multi-instrumental duo, combining powerful, soulful vocals with rich piano to weave stories of love, friendship and sense of place.

Often cute and cheerful, sometimes wandering into the misty and mellow then swiftly dropping into the groovy and sassy to get everyone clapping along again. Every instrument under the sun will be used in loopy chaotic explosions of fun.
