oh, i love you you're always on my mind if i could take some time to find you i'd be fine to wonder why you're never in my messenger replies, i've been waiting oh so long for you won't you tell me what we're gonna do today won't you tell me where we're gonna go, whoa-oh i'm in love again and i'm never gonna let you go i'm just wondering, are you still on earth? baby i can't stand all these rumours that i've heard someone said you left the planet but i don't believe a word, i'll be waiting up all night for you i wonder if you'll ever ask me to dance how come you never let me in on your plans? i never know where you're going next cause you never call, and you never text won't you tell me what we're gonna do today won't you tell me where we're gonna go, whoa-oh i'm in love again and i'm never gonna let you go is your mobile unreasonably slow? season four of our show's still all set up to go and if you never wanna see me, maybe i would wanna know cause i've been waiting up all night for you i've been waiting here all night, and i'll wait until it's light – i'll be waiting up all night for you

well i was walking down the street one day trying to find my name i'd been waiting for an easier day, but i was running out of time the cops were uncooperative, and the fire brigade just laughed oh, they didn't believe me, cause they'd never seen it whizzing past he said 'i've never had a case like this before.' 'where'd you see it last?' i said 'i saw it going west on Sullivan Street, but it was travelling very past 'i've been looking for hours – that's why i came to you' but they told me 'it's out of our hands, this is between your name and you' i can't find my name, i can't find my name everything's the same, everything's the same when it went away, when it went away all my ceilings rained, all my ceilings rained i can't feel my brain, all my thoughts remain tangled in the way that makes you wanna say 'i can't hear your face, i can't taste the day' maybe that's the way that we'll have to stay well i was just walking down the street today, hoping to fall in like but they're too quick in Amsterdam, zipping along on those bikes if the spokes could speak to me, maybe they'd ease my mind but the tyres don't try to talk so i'm walking away and i'm tired lost, one name twenty letters long i've been posting these all day and everything's gone wrong the sun's gone away, and the horizon's full of lightning there's not a single sighting, but call this number if you find it well i'll be walking down the street someday, trying to make a change and if you see me come and say hello you know it'll make my day and if you see my name in an unexpected place tell him go forever to the Netherland, because i never wanna see him again

if you wanna find the world behind your eyes listen in, to the colour of surprise cause you know, you never know it's such a beautiful world that we've been shown he said 'you've got a case of hope, and i confess, we've never seen a case as bad as this one.' 'i have the medication you desire, and even if you don't, it's still required.' we hear what you say on the phone. your sweet biscuits make me sick miss me with that cynical shit you can't keep me here for long this is not my home, it's not my home i gotta say that we're not here to do whatever the hell we want, and that's a difficult truth but no matter where the weather goes, we gotta get you away from all this prose they hear what we say on the phone they read what you wrote in your notebook the people turning up the foldback who we look up in the phonebook your sweet biscuits make me sick miss me with that materialist shit you can't keep me here too long just you try to stop me writing songs

i'm sitting in the theatre and nobody is standing on their head in the theatre, i will find a way to be what i want to stay i try to think of your lovely face but in the depths of outer space nobody can hear you dream and no one wants to fall asleep i'm quitting my day job cause i never get to play the flute i fit right in as a grey cog, oh but now it's time to burn the business suit (and i) (and i) and i wanna fly all the way to mars ten million beating hearts so they'll run the show right out of their phones, but we'll be alone again i'm sitting in the theatre and wondering just who you are

about

hi! here are some facts about this EP and the songs on it:

-the original versions of three of these songs (1, 3, and 4) were written from my head straight onto manuscript paper (ie, not using an instrument).

-the instruments in Plane Plans are exclusively MIDI, except for the messenger notification sound, which was recorded from my phone speaker into a microphone. if you're interested, the ding is a C.

-Business Flute is based on a true story. in september 2017, i really was sitting in a theatre, and nobody was standing on their head. i'd also like to fly all the way to mars.

-They're Too Quick in Amsterdam features sound effects from a Real Bike that i took into the studio and recorded (in stereo!) www.instagram.com/p/BuLKV1pn2oJ/

-i am pleased with how it has turned out, and i hope you enjoy it.
