    CD comes in a recycled card black and white printed slipcase, with album art printed on the CD - cheap & cheerful if you're into this format.

    ships out within 1 day
    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

If I fall out of the sky, then burn my body down beside
The tallest tree that you can find
And if I fall upon the land, I'll turn back into sand
And bleed between the lines

Take the keys, shoulder the weight, don’t leave me here
Come on, just wait
I'll drive you home when it’s all over
It’s never cut and never dry, never black and never white
I could be on the run forever

I'm nothing more than a monster, what you saw there, I never could say

Every seven years, something strange happens
Time and again, it runs and it hides
At the first sign of danger, the sky above opens,
And every seven years, another part of me dies

I’m blocked out on your phone, curse you on your own
Got bones to pick with you
I took the rough with all the rest, a birds abandoned nest
A record broke in two

I'm nothing more than a monster, what you saw there, I never could say

Every seven years, something strange happens
Time and again, it runs and it hides
At the first sign of danger, the sky above opens,
And every seven years, another part of me dies

If I fall out of the sky, burn my body down beside the tallest tree that you can find
And if I fall upon the land, I'll turn back into sand, and bleed between the lines

I'm nothing more than a monster, what you saw there, I never could say
Take your time thinking it over, you're not gonna make up your mind in a day

Every seven years, something strange happens
Time and again, it runs and it hides
At the first sign of danger, the sky above opens,
And every seven years, another part of me dies
Every seven years, another part of me dies
