lyrics

never heard a thing
I slept without fear
reached out a hand
found you near

never saw a thing
I couldn't explain
took all your love

never said a thing
I kept my mouth shut
would have called you back
found I could not

got me a shirt
its colours are plain
heart on the sleeve
ripped up and stained

give me a lover
I'll give you a frown
give me a tether
I'll tie him back down
give me a lover
I'll give you a frown
give me a tether
I'll tie him back down

never changed my mind
I flew with your tenderness
would be too scared
if I weren't in your arms

rated you twice
your wonder and pride
curled in a box
closed mean and tight

give me a lover
I'll give you a frown
give me a tether
I'll tie him back down
give me a lover
I'll give you a frown
give me a tether
I'll tie him back down

never heard a thing
I slept without fear
reached out a hand
found you near

never saw a thing
I couldn't explain
took all your love
poured it down the drain

about

Morningblind Barcelona, Spain

Morningblind: a collaboration between Catalan singer-songwriter Sandra Bossy Retti and British writer Richard Hayden; the result is an EP drawing on a wide range of influences: folk, jazz, classical, and rock. This is adult life in song; there’s not much escapism; it’s more about trying to look at things head-on and from that create something beautiful, affecting, genuine and eminently listenable. ... more
