    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.

Too clean to be real, too real to be drawn
You hang on my wall, like a watercolour storm
Your colours are washed out, your edges are frayed
You're stuck on a hook until somebody pays
But nobody will, because nobody cares
You're hanging around, waiting for heirs

You can run but not hide, your loyalty's torn
Ambiguous tides, in your watercolour storm
Over the fire, or hung by a door
Be a shame if you fell down, like a leaf to the floor
Never been wrapped up or bought from a store
Your badly drawn shells, washed up on a shore

Nobody wishes they'd ever been born
In the unconvincing waves of your watercolour storm
Your horizon line, it fades kind of wrong
Hung up your brushes, you weren't painting for long
When you finished that one you didn't do no more
But I'd go out walking in your watercolour storm

Too clean to be real, too real to be drawn
You hang on my wall, like a watercolour storm
