I was somewhere lost in England
I was somewhere far from you
Thinking about all the words we chose to use
And I know that it seems selfish
But it's easier on me
To move away in a half-light while you sleep

Why would I wait
Wait for words
I should do anything for you

Will you wait for me in London
Will you clear me out a space
Bring me the bones of mistakes that we have made
And I know I have to say it
But I'm sorry from the start
Come back to me, come back to me

Why would I wait
Wait for words
I should do anything for you

Oh stay
I'd do anything
For you

    Song Meaning"I wrote this song after a long slog of touring. I'll be completely honest and say that touring at my level is fairly grim in many ways, lots of cheap hotel rooms or late night drives back home if I'm close enough. I love playing the gigs but I wish there was less of the service station stops and Travelodge beds.
    I was asked by a promoter one night on that tour if being away from home so often was having a negative effect on my relationship. It got me thinking about what I wanted to do and where I wanted to be. Why would I spend so much time away from the person I should do anything for? It was one of those brief moments of doubt that was soon discussed away when home. I guess it applies to so many situations and scenarios that can keep you far from the person you most want to be with.

    The track was co-written with Dry the River vocalist Peter Liddle, produced by Aidan O'Brien (Producer/Composer) and features strings by AlexCornishMusic. Video by the amazing Villager. " - Richard Walters
