Half asleep, dreaming of a friendship Left to rot and drift and drain Trouble is, no one ever says Oh, I’ll never see you again Years ago, in another lifetime Only you and I ever shared Who could have predicted the shape of our path? Oh I’ll never see you again I tried to visit you sooner And if I’d had a sense of it sooner Telling me my best friend is gone and won’t be back Sure, I’ll never see them again Telling me my best friend is gone and won’t be back Sure, I’ll never see them again Passing through, last year heading East, we Thought of dropping in at your door We could not spare any time at all Oh I’ll never see you again I wish I’d taken my chance Wish I hadn’t left it to chance Telling me my best friend is gone and won’t be back Sure, I’ll never see them again Telling me my best friend is gone and won’t be back Sure, I’ll never see them again Sure, I’ll never see them Sure, I’ll never see them Sure, I’ll never see them again

If I could catch this heady moment of bliss If I could pour it in a bottle, my dear If I could freeze a spark to touch its sweet light With no regret to pull down our eyes High as the sun High as the moon High as the afternoon I first knew you High as the sun High as the moon High as the evening you entered my dream I miss the present at the front of our thoughts I miss the treasure of a night with no cut-off I miss the breaking of the seal on our feelings With no regret to pull down our ceiling High as the sun High as the moon High as the afternoon I first knew you High as the sun High as the moon High as the evening you entered my dream

Do you believe the words you say? I do, I do Into the corners of your fate? I do, I do Take an impression from my soul, I said it so With you my darling I shall walk, I said it so Under the rain and in the sunshine, shine Over the black cloud is a sky, blue Promise me this much love Promise me this much, my dear Promise me this much love I do, I do Do you believe the words you say? I do, I do Through every crack that tests your faith? I do, I do Maybe I need to show you more, to make it sure With you my darling I shall walk, to make it sure Until every doubt you sighed has gone up Up with the smoke you blew in thought

I have never seen you act so well, I must say. Gently blinded, I can never, never tell, I must say Normal service with a broken word, I must say Normal tricks in every message that you serve, I must say Scratch a fact and you shall find a veil, I must say Gently blinded, I could not follow the trail, I must say So you flipped the switch upon my heart, I must say So the red mist led me up the garden path, I must say

Good Life 04:18
The first time I heard this I said nothing ‘Give me your papers and your origin’ Come with the lucky ones washed up by the sea It’s a good life, it’s a good life for me Mother? I left her and I cried so Father? I buried him and I cried so Come with the lucky ones washed up by the sea It’s a good life, it’s a good life for me And the sun will rise and the sun will fall again, yes Oh forgive me, I just need a rest, oh God It’s a good life, it’s a good life for me Now I’m a parasite, so I’m told And I must be thankful, so I’m told Come with the lucky ones washed up by the sea It’s a good life, it’s a good life for me And the sun will rise and the sun will fall again, yes Oh forgive me, I have nothing left, oh no It’s a good life, it’s a good life for me

Severed hearts breed bolted minds Bitter embers burn inside Like a flower closing up at dusk A lonely soul begins to suffer All of this I know All of this fear All of this I try to keep inside to keep your love All of this I know All of this fear All of this I try to keep inside to keep your love Life is not always so kind And you may sever your own ties If you suffer but never learn Old mistakes will return All of this I know All of this fear All of this I try to keep inside to keep your love All of this I know All of this fear All of this I try to keep inside to keep your love

Sometime 05:05
Darling, you know I love you I just can’t see why That we can’t get along Sometime Sometimes, I wish I was A thousand miles away But when you go, my heart Still belongs to you Darling, you got my heart And you know I may be gone Oh, a million miles away But my heart Still relies on you Just to sing

about

Me and My Friends Bristol, UK

The sound of English folk colliding head-on with the golden-era music of 1970s West Africa and the Caribbean.

Bound by a mutual love of the sun-drenched vintage sounds of afrobeat, soukous, highlife and roots reggae, the UK-based 5-piece re-invent these influences around the instantly recognisable voice and finger-style guitar of songwriter and singer Nick Rasle.
