    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

I said come on, I'm not being funny
But I know that you know that I am
We kiss in the bushes on the short walk home
As we run by the rushes in town

You've seen it all before, you know I'll come back, honey
I wasn't made for this mess
Broke up the mould when you left me out cold
Death could do nothing less

There's just empty space where the words used to be
Another night like that and the drugs'll take me

The futures lit up in the light of the flames
of the bridges that I set alight
I stand in the shade of the choices I made
but as long as you're here, I'm alright

Nothing is wasted & nothing ignored
The only chances that you never stand
Is when you won’t sit the test, because you failed the rest
So you turned into stone made from sand

There's just empty space where the words used to be
another night like that and the drugs'll take me

I’ve laid down to waste everything that I’ve touched
I coursed through your house like blood
I put out the fires that burned in your hearth
And turned all the water to mud

Spend the rest of my life on the shore of your eyes
Dying a happier man
Than you credit me for, come on, give me some more
Come back to me now, if you can

There's just empty space where the words used to be
Another night like that and the drugs'll take me

There's just empty space where the words used to be
Another night like that and the drugs'll take me
