So the lines are all brand new And faces traced like ones I knew See me walk by So we talk of hillside views I'm missing And each time you're lying, I'll listen At least I'll try Cause when I walk it's taking me back And when I watch I'm on fire From the church to the railway track But talk is tracing cracks Cause when I watch I'm on fire But I'd watch it on fire The place that won't take me back So the lines are all brand new But places never change their view Just trick your eyes Cause when I walk it's taking me back And when I watch I'm on fire From the church to the railway track But talk is tracing cracks Cause when I watch I'm on fire But I'd watch it on fire The place that won't take me back It's by my side It's by my side

Make a wish on whispered stars For a road and faster car. And wait, see if it comes true For a house on distant streets Dream of nights in softer sheets This beach, will wait So I know you're tired, So leave it to the tide, And at next light, When weather's right, Come sailing home Let the dark subside, Just leave it to one side, I'm on your side, When weather's right, Come sailing home again Walk the land and see the shore Think of less and want for more And wait, to keep the grey from blue In a house on distant streets Someone dreams a distant beach And waits, they wait So I know you're tired, So leave it to the tide, And at next light, When weather's right, Come sailing home Let the dark subside, Just leave it to one side, I'm on your side, When weather's right, You'll see it swept away You'll see it swept away

I know that this might calm down, And I know I could sink and not drown But treading all night's getting old And sunrise these days leaves me cold I know, I can't turn this around Cause when I cut your lifeline I started falling - so far I couldn't look back When I cut your lifeline You were calling - so hard I couldn't shout back So no more of the long walks through town And no more talks of who let who down Though now I've said all my goodbyes, My mind is filled with kind replies I know, I know. Cause when I cut your lifeline I started falling - so far I couldn't look back When I cut your lifeline You were calling - so hard I couldn't shout back Let it all settle down, let it all settle down And yet I think I'll miss you if I fall...

You lie to my left hand side I look right But I see you. Three hours into half my night Your time flies But I sit through --get up, don't get up, get up don't get up-- --shut up, just shut up, shut up, just shut up-- --don't wake up, don't wake up, don't wake up-- --get up, don't get up, get up don't get up-- You've a quiet and restful night I'm just quiet Cause I'm not you Three hours into half my life Your time flies But I've no view It's not the latest start It's not a touching heart It's just a warning in the morning, I've watched everybody sleep It's not the latest sign I sigh It's just a warning in the morning I've watched everybody sleep You've a quiet and restful night, I'm just quiet, Cause I'm not you It's not the latest start It's not a touching heart It's just a warning in the morning, I've watched everybody sleep It's not the latest sign I sigh It's just a warning in the morning I've watched everybody sleep

Alone 01:15
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'll know 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'll know I know that this isn't the darkest night I'll know

about

It's been a long year. We've traveled under cover of night, making noise wherever we could. Meanwhile we've cut corners and fixed things in our creaky shacks with string and sealing wax. We think it's time to build something that will last a little longer...

It's time to leave this year and begin again with new plans. It's time to leave this home, build our boat and sail to somewhere new.

It's time to leave...

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?
