I drew the squad. It’s a sexy, sultry valentine from me to you <3

Apologies to everyone whose likeness is depicted.

So, I couldn’t resist popping down to Concrete last night.  As part of London Design Festival, architecture and design mag Dezeen teamed up with designer Paul Cocksedge, whose ‘Change The Record’ event featured him and a team transforming 12" records into elegant speakers (no wires needed here, kids).  I stumbled in fresh from charity shop acquisitions of The King & I and Ben Hur soundtracks (couldn’t decide until the very last moment). 

As it turned out though, because the King & I record hadn’t turned out quite as well as I’d hoped, I picked an offering from the racks of records on offer, and lo and behold, found an old Todd Terry release put out by a once-popular Leeds club night I remember called Hard Times. I think it turned out pretty well. Oven-ready, you could say.

Disarray


Lyrics to a song you all have been waiting for, for far too long. These lyrics are (for the most part) complete, subject to change once the song is recorded.

I rarely write songs because I hate releasing lyrics that aren’t perfect. Hope you enjoy them in spite of that. 


LYRICS

She pack your bags and left,
On that midnight train to Rome,
She said, I’m going to find my home.
City to city, with a suitcase and no phone,
Running and running alone.

If you asked her what exactly, are you looking for?
She would say the cure,
The cure to loneliness,
And sadness more or less,
The cure to living life without regrets.

Bring on the wonder,
Bring on the pain,
I can take anything,
Just don’t let me look inside myself,
Cause I’m afraid of what ill see.

No I’m not lost,
And no I can’t be found,
I’m stuck somewhere in that middle ground.

I just want to be someone other,
Than myself today.
When the world is in such a disarray,
Would they notice me missing?
I just want to be someone other,
Than myself today.
When everyone has everything figured out,
and I’m just struggling to be me.

She kept on moving,
She never rests her feet,
These things will sort themselves out.
Busy Oh so busy,
Filling up her head,
But a storm is brewing deep down.

Open your eyes,
Wake up my dear,
Time to leave your shell.
Distractions are just a temporary fix,
For learning to love yourself.

No I’m not lost,
Yes, I have been found,
Goodbye middle ground.

I don’t want to be someone other,
Than myself today.
When the world is in such a disarray,
They just might need me.

You can’t see the forest through the trees,
You can’t see the beehive through the bees,
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned,
Through my journeys,
You can’t feel your heart unless it beats.

I don’t want to be someone other,
Than myself today.
When the world is in such a disarray,
They just might need me.
