leaving, coming back to what I know slowly, slowly don't ever let it show leaving, ain't this all we ever known slowly, just let it go tell me you don't say if I won't say, cause your love is as good as none tell me you will tell me you can say, cause your love is as good as none say if I don't say if your not say, cause your love is as good as none say if you will say if I can say, cause your love is as good as none leaving, going back to what I know slowly, dreams will come and go say if I don't say if your not say, cause your love is as good as none say if you will say if I can say, cause your love is as good as none say if I don't say if your not say, cause your love is as good as none say if you will say if I can say, cause your love is as good as none

I wanna jump out of bed and reach the stars, And line the universe with the sweetest bars, Experience places that seem so far, And realise no matter where you’ve been or are, We’re all just people trying to seize our part... In life - living for what feeds our hearts, Graffiti painters everywhere are breathing art, Others live for the fast-life - competing cars, Or try and make a living when the streets are dark, Some live for their children - to see their spark, Others recognise love when they’ve been apart, Sometimes dreaming’s hard - you feel closed in, Like striving’s a waste - you know you won’t win, Cold and frozen - and your flow’s gone Need someone to confide in but there’s no-one, I’ve been there but i recognise that hope’s strong, I want to feel so much bigger than this I want to feel like each minute living is bliss Life is a journey with a million twists, The confusion, the hurt and the brilliant bits, I want to sink into this world i’ve created, And not think how the world was created, Some are struggling for one payslip, We spend millions on building a spaceship, Let’s face it - we’re all confused now, Build our own paradise - play our tunes loud, Write lines - have to try just to move crowds, Philosophise - figuring the truth out, We move round - try to improve our vision, Imprint our soul in the tunes that we’ve written, Prove we want more than consumer addiction, I need meaning else my future is fiction.

Oo oh, Oo oh, Oo oh (2x) Lying here next to you it’s plain All of our yellow’s turning grey A secret that I’ve tried to keep Is making it hard for me to sleep I wanna feel the same Don’t want to cause more pain I never meant to stray Wish I could take back the day Oo oh, Oo oh, Oo oh… (2x) (Don’t walk away) Walkin’ around in such a daze (…Murderer) Can’t think of one more move to play Suddenly sun gives way to rain (I surrender) Wish it could wash this stain away I wanna feel the same Don’t want to cause more pain, babe Don’t look at me that way Wish I could take back the day (2x) Don’t walk away – I’ll do anything to stay Don’t walk away – I’ll do anything you say Don’t walk away – Please don’t let us end this way Don’t walk away… Oo oh, Oo oh, Oo oh (3x)

Had to push up on it cos I didn't know, what you did to me Had to hush up on it so it didn't show Once it had been started I just didn't know, what you did to me Once it had departed I just couldn't show It's just another short day it's happened over again A repetitive strain glistens in my head The day to day is when we say this But we hate the ways in which life changes Kind of in the same way, it's happened over again Life can flip and turn it's back on you instead The back and forth is what we choose for, The next, oblivious yet so sure Say what you want if it's 'so so' Take what you need if it's 'no no' Darlin' I tried but I didn't forget, What you did to disturb my 'mojo' (x4) Now it's on, The transaction's over Now it's on One thing less to cover Had to push up on it, had to hush up on it...

I spoke too soon Laying in my room My head touched down Feelin like I wanna frown This Ain’t love, it’s some kind of love Makes me feel like a child So come and step to me Come on come on come on come on Come closer This is where you wanna be Move Closer Taking it slowly let me set you free So now you see What it feels like with me And I’m not takin “no” for an answer Just please me You and me together We could even fly away Got lots to gain, release the pain Just tell me what you say And I’m not takin “no” for an answer Just please me Let me, set you free

ee through my eyes. Caught up in games I pretended to play. But deceit finds us all in the night or the day. Weaving bittersweet tales from unreliable thread. The fibres entwine, the story is set. It’s a fine balance we tread, we teeter on the brink. It’s a fine balance we tread. Bring about an equilibrium, high above the crowded din. Where truthful solace bathes our eyes and pilgrims come to soothe their sighs. Creativity was lost in swirling seas on coral reefs Trapped secretly, We lost ourselves in the deep We lost ourselves in the deep We lost our.. It’s a fine balance we tread we teeter on the brink It’s a fine balance we tread We we we we we we we tread We tread.

You blow my mind How did you find me again…me again I was so blind Could not imagine us then…just a friend You’ve always been right by my side You never left although I tried You blow my mind How did you find me again…me again You blow my mind Ee-yo oh, ee-yo oh You tested time Let me go, so I’d know You free me Believe me…oh, oh You free me Believe me…oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

You are my, education Now I need to share this with you What I have learned Blows me away Comprehending the words I should say This time, I know Got to be strong, got to be wise, Don’t sacrifice This time, I know Got to be strong, got to be wise, don’t sacrifice, no. You are my, intuition Listening for the sounds left behind Masterfully, taking me away, To a Place where you and me should stay Actions speak louder than words Be strong Be wise Value yourself And just realise

about

What started out as a simple collaborative studio experiment quickly developed into much more enlisting the help of Moby’s lead singer Inyang Bassey, Leeds based vocalist Anna Stott and the subtle but beautiful vocal sounds of Natalie Gardiner. Other guest appearances come from the smooth Bell, the unusual Lauren Jade and the introspective emcee Lady Paradox.
