The streets outside are glistening I find I'm barely listening As you try to smile I sigh Another word would floor me, You loathe me and adore me And I've changed your life I hate long goodbyes My feet trip on your dances Of all the great romances I wish You'd passed me by I check your eyes For any sign they've misted My stomach's cold and twisted As the stony skies I hate long goodbyes Long grass will hide My last reply Where long grass grows Is where I'll let go And I might forget the meanings and the mistakes And I might regret cause the devil's in your details But I can't accept that you might want it this way So I'll go confess and tell it to the north east wind... Long grass will hide My last reply - I'll bury deep The thoughts I keep This city's found On solid ground Where long grass grows Is where I'll let go

There are lessons I can't learn The touch of cold things burn You've taught me well. I wish you'd left my head Before the words had fled And left the swell I always think I know you're kind It's a trick of hopeful minds That says you want to stay But if you want nothing more I'll trip across your floor And walk the other way Cause I'll choose nothing And I know that I'll lose nothing Cause in the, the blink and flow of time I'll know that I threw nothing. Before the sky was blue There was someone else who knew Your song too well. But I, I never saw more trace Than the shadow across your face And would you burn my picture as well I always think I know you're kind It's a trick of hopeful minds That says you want to stay But if you want nothing more I'll trip across your floor And walk the other way... Cause I'll choose nothing And I know that I'll lose nothing Cause in the, the blink and flow of time I'll know, that I threw nothing Nothing, no Nothing, no Nothing, nothing, no Nothing, nothing, no

You were writing in uncertain lines when you met me Drinking whiskey in the hope you'd overflow You talked of nights that you spent alone and how morning smelt of winter And said people shouldn't be judged by their clothes I was quiet as a ticking clock when you met me Giving hours when the minutes felt so slow. I spent the night in your one-bed house on a sofa made of splinters til your bed was the only place to go. Now it's a day to stop and persuade yourself And it's a day to overflow Look up, turn down. The bitter hands of winter stop here. It's a day to overflow Get up or go back home. Get up or go back home... I'll be walking past the place we met come Sunday You'll be sleeping off the words stuck in your throat. I might stop to hear how the traffic flows Through the Rumbles in my headphones but I won't hear my phone ring on this road. Now it's a day to stop and persuade yourself And it's a day to overflow Look up, turn down. The bitter hands of winter stop here. It's a day to overflow Get up or go back home. Get up or go back home Get up, get up... Slow, don't go, you're so low Slow, don't go, you're so low It's a day to stop and persuade yourself And it's a day to overflow Yeah it's a day to stop and persuade yourself And it's a day... Slow, don't go, you're so low Slow, don't go, you're so low

Dedicated 04:03
When there are those puppets on the candlelight And the southern wind blows cold When I trace your footsteps leaving my bedside Well then I think I know, I'll sleep no more A thousand houses in my head Allow a similar confession to excuse the things I said When I speak to darkened halls, it echoes of the morning Faces that I dedicate to turn, into the night When there are those cups left on my table side And the southern wind won't flow When I trace your footsteps leaving my bedside Well then I think I know Well then I know it's all about surprises A thousand houses in my head Allow a similar confession to excuse the things I said When I speak to darkened halls, it echoes of the morning Faces that I dedicate to turn When I speak to darkened halls, it echoes of the warning Faces that I dedicate to turn, into the night A thousand houses in my head Allow a similar confession to excuse the things I said Cause when I speak to darkened halls, it echoes of the morning Faces that I dedicate to turn When I speak to darkened halls, it echoes of the warning Faces that I dedicate to turn, into the night

Falling 03:17
A crowd of a few I think it's the best tonight I'm dressed in deep blue Cause someone once said it brought colours to my eyes Drink down, don't look back My feet will dance to any smile And if I fall it's not goodbye I know it's chance, I'll dance to pounding beat where morning meets the sky Look north, look east, look south I think we'll head west tonight The crowds have soaked through But we'll keep dancing until the first sign of light Drink down, don't look back My feet will dance to any smile And if I fall it's not goodbye I know it's chance, I'll dance to pounding beat where morning meets the sky If you should let go If you should let go Drink down don't look back Back in bed that night Dance to any smile Smiles will lead you right Falling's not goodbye By the time I'm back I think I'll dance I'll sing Sing that last song to a velvet sky

Make a wish on distant stars For a faster, redder 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, I'm on your side, 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, I'm on your side, 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

Clumsy 00:54
Well she breaks everything, She's clumsy from the start I better not get too close to her In case she breaks my heart. Well she breaks everything, She better not break my heart

about

We smile through the dark times, we get quiet when we're mad. Our greatest triumphs are when we're proving someone wrong. We lie, but never when it matters, we keep to ourselves, but only until you say hello.

We're contrary, confusing and perhaps a little self-destructive. But despite all this, we can be really rather sweet, once you get to know us.

And we never, ever give a straight answer.

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?
