    edition of 50 

      £3 GBP or more 

     

  • 28 page, hardback book edition, featuring photography & lyrics to the songs on GONE.

    It's expensive because that's how how much they cost to make & ship. No profit is made on this item.

    5 books have been made for the band and we expect to produce a very small single figure number for sale to the public, for the wealthy, discerning English country music fan.

    This book edition comes with the CD and the download included.

    How it works is, you place the order & pay. Then we order the book (individually) from the printer. It takes 7 days to arrive. It will then be signed, have a CD added and posted out to you. So it'll take a little time for you to get it.

    It will be worth the wait, though. It's very beautiful.

lyrics

Woke up and I saw you not lying in bed
Next to me was wrote a little note that read
I feel a sink in me like a well
My ears swell like blood in a shell

A frantic rush of adrenaline
Keeps my mind's eye falling in
I push away the sleep from my face
Down the stairs, out the door into space

The silence out here is not mine to break
The time you gave me all I have to take
I know I've done my share of wrongs to you
I take them back until my days are through

I never said that we'd never fit in
A million fires burning under our skin
Wanna be reflected in your drunken eyes
Never will because too many goodbyes

Like blood on the touchscreen, so easy to wipe clean
Much harder to know when you got it made
When you feel like a has-been, your head through a windscreen
When you're running away and you should have stayed

Mist is clinging to the walls like a sound
Closing in as I stumble around
Square the circle, circle the square
Some kind of birds are circling there
Streets are rivers and the seas are dead
I miss the sound of your voice in my head
It’s the only thing that I need to hear
If I keep walking, then the sky will clear

White lightning, twenty Marlboro lights
Are all I need in The Lion tonight
But the bar is closed, all the people are gone
I look outside and its almost dawn
Turned to leave, dropped my phone on the floor
Screen cracked and now my hand is raw
Leave it there and run for the door
Every drop lost like a memory, flawed


Like blood on the touchscreen, so easy to wipe clean
Much harder to know when you got it made
When you feel like a has-been, your head through a windscreen
When you're running away and you should have staye
