about

The second EP in the 'Santa Fe' collection, this collection is a companion piece to 2016's Where The Air Is Thin. Both contain songs written in, or about, Santa Fe, New Mexico. This collection begins with Beauty Bright, written on banjo in Santa Fe because it was easier to bring a banjo on the plane.

Track Name: Beauty Bright
Oh my Lord,
You cast such long, long shadows
Strike a chord
from some old song that we both know
I’ll lay down
and sing along with my eyes closed
cos’ the light’s too bright sometimes
Light can make you blind

All the flowers we collected started wilting, drying out
All the colours will be faded by the morning
if we don’t stop to keep the beauty bright

Your strong hand
can feel like an anchor
Hold me down
but know that I cannot breathe underwater
Life’s too good
to want to trade this one in for another
Would you pry my fingers loose?
Could you pry my fingers loose?

All the flowers we dug up, they started wilting, drying out
All the colours will be faded by the morning
if we don’t stop to keep the beauty bright
All the flowers we collected started wilting, drying out
All the colours will be faded by the morning
if we don’t stop to keep the beauty bright
Track Name: Haunted
And if I knew your name
I’d probably forget
every other word
A mind can only hold
so much beauty inside
at least that’s what I’ve heard
And I don’t want to
find it out the hard way for myself
I’ll just let someone else
You left with someone else
A moment open closed
You vanished like a ghost
I’m haunted

If I could play the game
I’d probably protect
my heart from every wound
I almost caught your name
was written on your cup
But I was looking up
I don’t want to admit it
but I know I stared to long
Your eyes were singing songs
I want to sing along
But I forget the tune
It echoes like a ghost
I’m haunted

I’ve been coming here
for just about a year
6:30 on the clock
Watching over the spot
Right where you last touched down
but now you’re not around
No, you don’t come around
anymore

And if I knew your name
I’d probably forget
every other word
Track Name: Would Not Trade
Take my hand
hold it in your warm hand
And I’ll hold onto you as the winter comes
This is not
exactly what we had planned
time moves slowly and we’re still here where we’re from

Sweeping pine
needles from the wood floor
Come January - it’s the worst time of the year
towels stuffed
underneath the front door
to keep the cold out for me and Jack and Lu and you in here

I would not trade
I would not trade (it's easy to say)

We could be
out there in some beach house
the kids come running in with handfuls full of sand
Or maybe not
maybe we are travellers
We’ve got no family yet and all of the time in the world

With our backpacks worn right through
baby me and you
could have wound somewhere better than this old place
she was built in 55
but we’re keeping her alive
through a decade’s worth of winters
while we’re growing strong as timbers

would not trade
(it's easy to say)
Track Name: Be Good To My Heart
Be good to my heart
be good to my heart
be good to my heart
you know it’s been broken before

If I let them nail these hands
will that help you understand?
If I let them run me through
will that be enough for you ?

I’ll be good to your heart
I’ll be good to your heart
I will be good to your heart
One’s never been broken before

My promises keep
My promises keep
Forget all that you have come to believe
One’s never been broken before

If I let them nail these hands
Will that help you understand?
If I let them run me through
Will that be enough for you?
(to know that)
I’m not going anywhere
I’m not going anywhere
Without you

They’ll hurt you deeper than you know
deeper still
I’ll heal you deeper than they’ll go
you know I will

So be free with your heart
be free with your heart
be free with your heart
like it’s never been broken before
