Blanket Of Stars

Written By: Paige Trantham

17th of March and the rains came in
He was standing still
He wanted to be wandering
He had a crooked smile that said ‘I’m trying’
Blanket of Stars, stone pillow

Nobody notices him noticing
They all seem oblivious to time
He don’t impose, the bustlers come and go
He’s just a spec in there foggy little eyes

If you only stopped to talk
You would see him glow
Blanket of stars stone pillow
Blanket of stars stone pillow

Calls over his dog as black as night
Told me a few days ago he nearly lost his life
He was lucky, he was better he was trying to make it right
Blanket of stars stone pillow

Nobody notices him noticing
We all seem oblivious to time
He don’t impose, the people come and go
He’s just a spec in our foggy little eyes

But If you only stopped to talk
You would see him glow
Blanket of stars stone pillow
Blanket of stars stone pillow

If you only stopped to talk
You would see him glow
Blanket of stars stone pillow
Blanket of stars stone pillow

17th of March and the rains came in
He was standing still
He wanted to be wandering

Leonora

Written By: Paige Trantham

Leonora

Princess Leonora glistened in the sun
She came to save one another
And didn’t leave till she was done
Somebody’s body is always the last thing to go
You’ve got a house full of pills and you still seem to call it your home

Without you now

Princess Leonora takes a curtsey for your faults
She’s stealing kisses and your medication
And it’s no wonder at all
That somebody’s body is always the last thing to go
You’ve got a house full of pills and you still seem to call it your home

Where are you now
Where are you going and how far
It’s the beat out wheel of your rusted car
It’s the echo of a breaking star

You are

Princess Leonora glistened in the sun
She came to save one another
And didn’t leave till she was done
Somebody’s body is always the last thing to go
You’ve got a house full of pills and you still seem to call it your home

Without you now

FIRE

Written By: Paige Trantham

Fire

This is the seventh time I’ve changed
I’m yearning
Your possession
And your turning your head to figure where it all comes down
All those you meet now
Have nothing to say

We come back to
The planet rearranged
Your burning recollection
And your turning your head just to figure out where it all comes down
And all those you meet now have nothing to say

And all of your life
And all of your life
All those barriers you broke and the words you choked they’re on fire

We come back to the planet rearranged
Your burning, your burning recollection
And you’re shaking your head just to figure out where it all went down
And all those you meet now
They have nothing to say

But all of your life
All of your life

All those barriers you broke and the words you choked they’re on fire

And you’ve started a war that you couldn’t fight with dirty hands dear
And the sky blackens
All your lies become clear

And all of your life
And all of your life
All those barriers you broke and the words you choked they’re on fire

And all of your life
And all of your life
All those barriers you broke and the words you choked they’re on fire

Red To Blue

Written By: Paige Trantham

Red to Blue

Well I shouldn’t expect perfection
I shouldn’t have wept to the moon
And I shouldn’t have spilt my colours
Quite this soon

Cos you’re racing like a firework
And you’re churning like the sea
And I’m putting up a patch work wall that spans from you to me

And if all this comes crashing down
Then I’ll retreat back to my town
And watch those skies from red to blue
And I’ll stop singing about me and you

Well you know how much I love ya
Can you be secure in that
I would write it in a letter of material facts
Cos you’re bouncing off the ceilings
And I’m climbing up the walls
And I’ve never known a love like this
I’ve never had to float

And if all this comes crashing down
Then I’ll retreat back to my town
And watch those skies from red to blue
And I’ll stop singing about me and you

If I could paint for you
Colours of your skies
Will you sit with me
While it cracks and dries
So I paint for you
The colours in mind
Will our canvas fade in the light of time?

Well I shouldn’t expect perfection
I shouldn’t have wept to the moon
And I shouldn’t have spilt my colours
Quite this soon

Cos you’re racing like a firework
And you’re churning like the sea
And I’m putting up a patch work wall that spans from you to me
And if all this comes crashing down
Then I’ll retreat back to my town
And watch those skies from red to blue
And I’ll stop singing about me and you
