Brace Brace I used to believe in darkened rooms Wrestling in the shadows Racing with my monsters Cause there's honour in a fresh and open wound In wading through the shallows And testing my responses. Now there’s you. I'm done. Like waking up and blinking off the sun. No-one, had made me reconsider this success. Cause yes, the morning star burns brighter on its own. But we overflow. The hardest part of flying is letting go. Small scrapes are hidden by the views The mountains hold our shadows Until we’re dashed upon them. Now there’s you. I'm done. Like waking up and blinking off the sun. No-one, had made me reconsider this success. Cause yes, the morning star burns brighter on its own. But we overflow. The hardest part of flying is letting go. And there's so little hope for landing, But I would rather make a stand, and take your hand and crash. Now there’s you. I'm done. Like waking up and blinking off the sun. No-one, had made me reconsider this success. And yes, the morning star burns brighter on its own. But we know the the hardest part of flying is letting go. So little hope for landing, I brace myself to crash. So little hope for landing...

Return Oceans deep and two more sleeps from home I pull my car to the right lane. The stars have dipped their lights and flown What if I stayed? (I strayed, I stayed) But there is no word No glance returned No soft concern or thought That warms me like this place. No coat I've worn One catch, I'm torn This house that I'm built for On my own I'm just water, wire and clay Queues of people form their ranks to go They're making thunder in the rain My bags are weighted, stuffed and thrown Sometimes I feel that way, this way. But there is no word No glance returned No soft concern or thought That warms me like this place. No coat I've worn One catch, I'm torn This house that I'm built for On my own I'm just water, wire and clay. I'm water, wire and clay. In the air there's a whisper of rain But it's low in the sky and I'm safe In the days when my memories run grey I’ll have dreams of return to sustain. But there is no word No glance returned No soft concern or thought That warms me like this place. No coat I've worn One catch, I'm torn This house that I'm built for On my own I'm just water, wire and clay I'm water, wire and clay

Spark I wish I had all the answers To the questions that weigh in your dark They wait in the cold Til the doubt takes its hold then burst like the flame from a spark As you are As you are I wish you'd been born a dancer And had all the best steps in your mind But you're quick of pace And have natural grace You'll learn to move in your own time As you are As you are As you are As you are I know you think warmth is a cancer And it's best to stand cold and apart But out on the breeze Between oaks and the seas You'll find you're just fine as you are. As you are As you are As you are As you are

No Time I turn from sunlit halls Where the pictures of us get smaller and fade Lost smiles in those missed calls Hit my fist on a wall, Let stone convey That there's no time Like when there's no time So take it while you have it Cause there's no time Like when there's no time So reach right out and grab it Did you wish I'd offered my hand? Was I mist on the falls or a rock in the waves? The chance to was mine and again What's some space between friends This late in the day? Cause there's no time Like when there's no time So take it while you have it Cause there's no time Like when there's no time So reach right out and grab it

Late Night Drive I feel the dark It prowls my street It whispers in And pulls my feet So I drive to find some comfort on the breeze To go somewhere I'm out of air I'm out til dawn I'm out to find the reasons why my days run long Cause there's comfort behind windows in a storm But I'd rather have the lightning keep me warm It's long past time to leave I'm hating this view You're water when I breathe I doubt I'll miss you A late night drive just shows It's only me and endless arrows in the road I'll cut my hair, I'll cut my name I'll cut out looking for somebody else to blame Cause the maps are old and rotten, ripped and torn And I won't be taken by the paths they've worn It's long past time to leave I'm hating this view You're water when I breathe I doubt I'll miss you A late night drive just shows It's only me and endless arrows in the road I'll brake for nothing I'll brake for nothing

Screamager A face like this won't break any hearts And thinking like that won't make any friends Screw that Forget about that I don't want to think about anything like that Screw that Forget about that I don't want to know about anything like that I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you Your beauty makes me feel alone I look inside but no one's home Screw that Forget about that I don't want to think about anything like that Screw that Forget about that I don't want to know about anything like that I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you But get screwed up on you But get screwed up on you

Alone (it's not so bad) It's not so bad alone My fridge makes a noise that lets me know I'm home The milk in my bones Says this isn't the darkest night I've known I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known I'd walk some miles to sleep But there's nowhere to run and no lights on my street And my shoe with the stone Says this isn't the darkest night I've known I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known And this is where'll I'll lie, this whole night The fire and the sigh, threw no light And this is where I'll hide And this is where I'll hide It's not so bad alone The crack in my wall let's me know I've grown 'Cause stronger winds have blown And this isn't the darkest night I've known I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known And this is where'll I'll lie, this whole night The fire and the sigh, threw no light And this is where I'll hide And this is where I'll hide In silence, I'm silent Rewriting untitleds Half-light it burns brighter In silence, I'll lie And this is where'll I'll lie, this whole night The fire and the sigh, threw no light And this is where I'll hide And this is where I'll hide

Falls To Me On days you're dazed by storms ahead When long rain fills your mind with dread Well time may crawl But you'll stand tall Saying now it falls to me On days your eyes can't look around Ashamed of times you tripped and stayed down Well you'll still crawl, til standing up's no work at all Saying now it falls to me Cause it's your day And it's your day And it's your day And it's your day (Let it go, take it slow, hold on to the things you know) And if I fade to brick or stone Some warmth remains because I know That it's your day That it's your day And it's your day And it's your day And it's your day

about

I Am Not Lefthanded California

We're a female-fronted, mostly-Irish, alternative rock three-piece. We play sparse but uplifting cinematic indie music; something like Natalie Merchant fronting Death Cab for Cutie. How are you?
