and so you think that you know who you are and you believe you've made it out of the dark but just because you find some sort of cosmic spark doesn't mean that you know who you are and what you have, and where you'll be, and how you know that when you dream the planet spins, the stars collide, i hope your eyes are open wide so now you're heading back to somewhere new and Daisy will text you some interesting things to do she's quite the recommendator; she knows just where to go i might not see you later... what do you have, where will you be, how do you know that when you dream, the planet spins, the stars collide, i hope your eyes are open. why are you still inside my head? almost everything you said & almost everything you say just makes me feel some kind of way why do you wander through my mind? did you stop to read the sign and do you wanna stick around, and put my feet back on the ground (on the ground) so tell me, who you are and what you have and where you'll be and how you know that when you dream the planet spins, the stars collide, i hope your eyes are open wide what you have and where you'll be and how you know that when you dream the planet spins, the stars collide, i hope your eyes are open wide
3.
oh could you tell me where you're going or could you tell me where you've been All Day, and Through the Night (& back again) oh could you tell me what you want, now or could you tell me what you need? i'll be there, yes i Won't do you have everything that you require do you know where the words go when you lie do you know what happens when you die do you have a plan? are you alive? does earth turn softly after dark why does everything go so fast maybe we could slow it down i'm gonna make it, i'm gonna make it right i gotta make it, i gotta make it right i know i'm asking all these questions but they've been keeping me awake, oh in the middle of the night and the day and i don't mean to disturb you, oh no it's just that i've been feeling positively perturbed and low do you have everything that you require do you know where the words go when you lie do you know what happens when you die do you have a plan? are you alive? are you alive? are you alive? are you alive? are you alive? (cont.) maybe we could climb back down i'm gonna make it right, i'm gonna make it i'm gonna make it right, i gotta make it oh could you tell me where you're going and could you tell me where you've been All Day, and Through the Night (& back again) oh could you tell me what you want, now or could you tell me what you need? and i'll be there, yes i Won't

answer 02:09
she found the words to say things she didn't know he found another way to make it back to land alone she wrote an ending for the story that she'd lost she breathed it out, and breathed it in and never ever stopped oh i don't think there's an answer anywhere on earth and it's funny how the best things can turn into the worst i gotta say it: romance is bound to be absurd but that's all right... it's gotta be (oh, oh, oh) stories here, and stories there, seems like stories are everywhere, oh stories here, and stories there; won't you read me a story and breathe the air he rose above the man he used to be she fell in love with the hope of being free his new beginning was a place he thought he'd dreamed but suddenly, he was there and they said i'm on my way finally on my way all my life i've waited for this day well, it's all right everything's okay had so many questions but the answer was the same (yeah) so many questions but the answer was the same, oh so many questions but the answer was the same

Plans 02:50
so you look up and what do you see is this where you wanted to be if you stepped back, back out of your life what would you notice that you've tried to hide i'm sorry that i never found the words to say i'm sorry that i never held your hand and ran away but there's just too many logistics, right now and there's too much on my mind so you find out that you can be free and you write out who you're gonna be and you think to yourself 'this wasn't part of the plan' every time something happens that you don't understand all plans will fail but we just can't do without all the plans we make but some things just don't work out so you look up and what do you see is this where you wanted to be

here's the thing, right pretty much anything can be a song there's like – there's a lot of different ways that you can make a song you can do, like... uh... good songs? bad songs. songs about, parking tickets. songs about, being in love, with.... uh, cereal. i dunno. uhhhm. there's just, like ifyoujustlookatlike even just one, tiny dimension, like the tempo of the song, right you can have – there's all these numbers. and you can just pick any of them uhm... um. i think that's pretty cool. i think that's just, like, totally insane. i dunno, and, it's kind of, it's almost like, if you stop to think about anything at all, even the most boring, mundane thing, it's like ...Whoa. it's like every single atom is just soaked in – in, Whoa, but for some reason it just doesn't... doesn't really come through, uh, automatically. i dunno. so where are we gonna find it now (yeah) and how are we, how are we gonna get it out
21.
well i just realised in a dream it’s all too wonderful for me there’s way too many things to see and way too many things to be i’ve just got something in my eye it’s a tear cause i've been cryin’ i wish that i could see it all but he said “i’ll make you a wall” and i don’t know exactly what that means and now i can’t remember what i dreamed no matter how i stretch, it’s out of reach and now i can’t remember where i’ve been hold me in your arms and tell me everything’ll be all right i’ve just gotta be sure we’re gonna make it through the night oh whoa there’s no one waiting on me now these one way wafers are too sour while i’m away i’m thinking, “wow – i can while away the hours” but does that time go to a place and inside time can you find space there’s something here that is the same but i just don’t know how to say it and honestly, i’m desperate that i did cause it’s the only thing i want to do and now that dream is starting to come back to me and this time when it goes i’ll miss it more so hold me in your arms and tell me everything’ll be all right i’ve just gotta be sure we’re gonna make it through the night
22.

24.
such a long long time ago after dark and far from home something changed something became new, love had arrived in a manger full of hay was the saviour, was the way holy night blindness to sight love, love had arrived from outside the universe he came down to planet earth starlit glow highest to low love, love had arrived but if that’s what Christmas means why do we spend these weeks buying shit that isn’t it no, that’s isn’t right so be grateful and rejoice find some peace among the noise i know you’re stressed but don’t you forget love, love has arrived
25.
we’ve made it to Christmas Day desperately hoped i wouldn’t feel this way like a worn out shopping bag i blame myself, & i’m so mad if there is no cataclysm that appears i’ll just sit here waiting for another year and maybe we’ll never be friends it’d be such a shame if that’s how it ends i am several steps away from feeling glad can’t enjoy the joy that the season’s had i don’t have the energy, i cannot dance can’t tell you the reason but the reason’s bad everything i have to do is overdue i said i wouldn’t stress today and i made it through about 15 minutes "yep, that's... that's pretty much how it happened." walking round in circles is all i can do tryna find an exit point somewhere new but that’s the thing, there’s none in sight and we’re approaching the night the question is, how will i know it's the right kind of thing? ʜᴏᴡ ᴡɪʟʟ ɪ ᴋɴᴏᴡ ɪ'ᴍ ᴜsɪɴɢ ᴍʏ ᴛɪᴍᴇ ᴡᴇʟʟ? y e s . dave has a hobby of identifying birds. it's a pleasant way of spending his time, and besides: you can learn quite a bit from hobbies.

we walk in dreary silence the world is heavy on our shoulders if only i could brighten but all i feel is getting older and then one night so terrified one giant eye a beast in the sky i always knew there would be some creature living in the atmosphere why not if there are billions of undiscovered species in the ocean oh my lenticular friends, don’t come to close to the ground now i’ve heard that you may dissolve and rapidly evaporate out of sight so stay there alone undiscovered and unknown i won’t tell a soul no, i won’t tell a soul

a gentle wind in the morning occasional birds are calling everything's green and blue and maybe peace is true well i don't know where i'm going but i know that i'm going there the gentle wind keeps blowing blowing through my hair and i've been to that waterfall stood there watching water fall down into the ocean and i been trying to do it all but i forget to break my fall down and my emotions, they say take better care of us don't forget, we're here to take better care of you as well you gotta stop stressing out it's very important to take time out and think through all your doubts you can't run away forever but maybe i can and maybe i will and maybe i'll never come back maybe i'll run from my whole life and maybe i'll never look back yeah maybe i'll run, maybe i'll run and maybe i'll never come back maybe i'll run for my whole life ...you can't run away from that a gentle breeze in the evening i'm terribly weak in the knees but i hear it from the trees that night that everything's gonna be all right

crystallise 03:19
i’m running out of time to live my smile writhes right below my skin i’m running out of things to say this hollow night fills to the brim it makes the dullest, thickest thing vision transitions into sin we come right out and back again my eyes stay dry my sight crystallise so i’m stuck with thunder in my gut conditions don’t reflect the rut this summer’s sucked it out of me can’t bring myself to count past three i’ve got it flowing through my veins i stop to view it below the rains i start to breathe but then i say it’s not to know who made my day my eyes stay dry my sight crystallise

what’s that sound drifting through here have you got plans for the new year i might have felt some excitement but i don’t know what i’m writing although now i’m losing some uselessness the ceiling’s filling with music thunder rumbles us looser i wonder what’s in the future this new year it feels so clear if you’re here still my fears just take the wheel and make me real cause i can hear this new year let’s go back to the start magic shards, open heart hopeful glass broke apart i wonder what’s in the future

about

in december, 2018 i made a new song every day. i love doing this because the crazy time pressure means you try out all sorts of new things you'd never even think about if you were being careful. although by the end i was going slightly mad cause i'd only just finished New York and then i launched straight into this. so the moral is maybe take some darn breaks from recording once in a while? but also push yourself and try new things. thanks for coming to my bread talk (talk about bread)
