"Uummannaq Song" as written by and Katie Tunstall....
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hold your fire
I'm coming out and I'll tell you the truth
I was trying to raise my roof
Did you see it?
That I needed to prove
That my stinger always stays
You said she's beautiful when she plays
Did I hit you in the proper place?

Oh, oh, suddenly

I, oh well, I could live in this town
Five cold years before I
Yes, I could live in this town
Before I head for home

Oh, oh, oh, oh

It's my turn
With the spotlight burning a hole
But my bird-heart's turning cold
As the temperature rises all around
To the sound of a ticking bomb
And then it's not just showing off here
You know there's something going on here
Going on here

Suddenly

I, well, I could live in this town
Five cold years before I
Yes, I could live in this town
Five cold years
Yes, I could live in this town
Five cold years before I
Well, I could live in this town
Before I head for home

And considered it odd
That I ever stayed, ever stayed
That I ever stayed
Ever stayed
That I ever stayed
Ever stayed
That I ever stayed
Ever stayed
That I ever stayed (Ever stayed)

You know that feeling you get
When you don't want to leave
That feeling you get when you don't want to leave
That feeling you get when you don't want to leave
That feeling when you don't want to leave

Suddenly
I, well, I could live in this town
Five cold years before I
Yes, I could live in this town
Five cold years
Yes, I could live in this town
Five cold years before I
Well, I could live in this town

Before I head for home
And considered it odd
That I ever stayed

    General CommentAt a concert she talked about how as a little girl she always loved the arctic and wanted to go live there in an igloo, so before writing this album she went and visited Uummannaq, which inspired this song
