Written and recorded between April and June 2016.

lyrics

I forget to breathe when I look at you
My eyes just can't believe it's true
My lips fail every word
And tremble like my heartbeat
My legs no longer feel like mine

I seem to come around when you're not there
But it's not like I've found a cure
I'm clearly not myself
And I think those days are over
I don't think I'll ever be the same

I could blame insomnia
Or put it down to alcohol
And what about this stress that I've been through
But a spell is cast upon me now
Let it go and heed the call
I know it's all because of you

I try to play it down when you're not there
I don't want to make it sound uncool
But I think I'm on the edge of saying that I love you
At the risk that I might play the fool

I could blame insomnia
Or put it down to alcohol
And what about this stress that I've been through
But a spell is cast upon me now
Let it go and heed the call
I know it's all because of you

I could say I'm coming down
With something that's been going round
But it looks like I've been staring at the truth
'Cause a spell is cast upon me now
Let it go and heed the call
I know it's all because of you
