Turning in the light
Words & meanings fight
For air & time & space & lines
Anchoring our very lives

Broken into parts
Plans will stop & start
Rebuild, retrace to find a way
This is how we live today

You've given me everything
And that's all I need for now
Come build a life with me
Come build a life

Climbing up the walls
Standing just to fall
The light of day, the dead of night
Time we find to makes things right

You've given me everything
And that's all I need for now
Come build a life with me
Come build a life

    Song Meaning"The song started life as a really beautiful and circular guitar part Aidan wrote - to my ears it's got a William Orbit circa Ray of Light feel, but also reminds me of Geotic lines. Around this we built some big blocks of piano and went from there.

    On occasion, there is no lyrical planning or plot. Singing happens, you listen back and there is a song that makes sense at that point and time. This is the case with 'Build' - I sang the words as they came into my brain and it ended up making
    sense to me. In an odd way, when this happens, it can be weirdly satisfying and feel kind of pure in a 'stream of consciousness' way. Yes, I am Jack Kerouac.

    Production wise - we have gone for YOUR HEART STRINGS. And I hope we
    have succeeded in plucking them some. I've been really loving the Keaton Henson 'Romantic Works' piano album recently, so there's some of that spareness in there and also, as previously mentioned, a little William Orbit lurking in the shimmer."
