"Travelling Woman" as written by and Natasha Khan....
Hang on traveling woman
Don't sacrifice your plan
'Cause it will come back to you
Before you lose it on the man

Never fall in love with potential
'Cause you can?t see with your own eyes
All the pretty faces and sorry words
Can take away your pride

Got to listen
To the vision
Some may say a dream
Words for the unseen

Or it can make you tired, tell you lies, make you fall
Make you tired, tell you lies, make you fall
Make you tired, tell you lies, make you fall

Hang on traveling woman
Don't sacrifice your plan
'Cause it will come back to you
Before you lose it on the man

Got to listen
To the vision
Play in the ashes
Of what you once were

Got to listen
To the vision
Play in the ashes
Of what you once were

    Song MeaningI love the line "Never fall in love with potential, cause you can't see with your own eyes".

    I think this explains something everyone does, which is get hopeful when we meet someone new. We're so ready to not be alone that if a person even remotely resembles what we want, we're willing to already fall in love with them (their potential) before we even know for sure.

    General CommentHang on travelling woman dont sacrifice your plan
    Cos it will come back to you before you lose it on the man
    Never fall in love with potential cos you can't see with your own eyes
    All the pretty faces and sorry words can take away your pride
    Got to listen to the vision
    Some may say a dream, words from the unseen

    The whole album is about love vs lonely and pearl vs natasha and i think this deals with the former debate. It's a song to herself saying not to give up on anything- keeping looking, don't let your dreams fade away for anyone else, don't think about things that have passed on by and don't let anyone change your mind because you know what you want.

    They can make you tired, tell you lies, make you fall
    Make you tired, tell you lies, make you fall
    Make you tired, tell you lies, make you fall

    Getting what you want may be tiring, difficult and change your opinions.

    Hang on travelling woman, dont sacrifice your plan
    Cos it will come back to you before you lose it on the man
    Got to listen to the vision
    Got to listen to the vision
    Play in the ashes of what you once were

    But stick at it, listen to yourself and don't be afraid and upset by the things that have hurt you- think about how it has benefitted you.

    General Commentohhhhh man i think this song totally epitomizes her supposed break-up (i'm not sure what her relationship status is as of late) with her boyfriend. natasha is trying to establish herself, her art, her music, everything and build herself up around it, and i'm sure (from experience) that doing so can often cause a wedge in relationships when both people are doing the same thing (i.e. her boyfriend being in a band). both are moving in different directions, and she's torn between staying with him and possibly sacrificing her dream, or moving forward with what she wants to do, and losing him.

    Song Meaning"'Travelling Woman' was one of the last ones I wrote and like 'Moon and Moon' for the previous album, I wrote it in the studio when I was finishing this record off. Supposedly it's kind of very straightforward in terms of lyrics and feeling, I think, compared to the other songs. It's pretty much the most direct, sort of me telling myself I have to sit by my own vision, not get too sort of off the track which I had been for half the album, pretty distracted and sort of all over the place. It's like coming home to myself."
