Washover 04:39
Washover The temperature’s dropped, noise stopped, barometer’s fallen Sunrays poke their own way through the gloom The wilderness and the emptiness are calling You’ll never get out, if you don’t get out there soon Round this time of year, you gain a primal yearning And it burns just like the fires upon the fell The colours of your youth they are returning Wash over the gates of God with the flames of Hell And who’s to say, you’ll end up swimming backwards For you the current flows far too strong You’ve never lacked in passion, you’ve never lacked lust Who’s to tell you that sort of thing is wrong? So watch over me tonight and I just might Washover you So watch over me tonight and I just might Do anything you do Anything you do Do anything you do Do anything you do Anything you do Round this time of year, you begin to get crestfallen You say there’s just so much you have to do And ain't it easy to get down when things get boring But then you work out exactly what is true to you So watch over me tonight and I just might Washover you (washover you) So watch over me tonight and I just might Do anything you do Anything you wanna do Anything… Washover you Washover you Round this time of year Yeah, round this time of year Round this time of year

Somebody, Somewhere Well we had a little fun and now here we are You're slamming the door of my little old car You said you never really meant to go this far Well that's just fine Well you're giving me the blues and you don't look back At the smoke that's rising from my chimney stack And you know how to use and you know how to act Well not this time Too bad that we used to say that we were in love Too bad we never really took the time I'm sure you'll be alright when you head off down the road again Don't pay me no mind I'm sure that somebody somewhere wants your love I'm sure that somebody somewhere wants your mind Too bad that you're too scared to go out and give it You're not having mine I'm sure that somebody somewhere wants your heart I'm sure that somebody somewhere wants your mind Too bad that you're too scared to come out and admit it You wasted my time Woah

about

A little EP to bring my track Washover into the world.
Bulked out by some recent Mint Biscuit instrumentals.

Having taken A Trip Outside with his last album, this one sees Mint Biscuit sitting in his garden at home, watching the birds and the bees do their stuff.
