lyrics

We wake at night – a howling in the darkness,
It comes from the right, then works right around us.
The night is cold, carving its name out,
Who are we now? And where do we come from?
Ringing bells, ghosts are upon us,
Ghosts of the past, future and present.
Hopeful yet, but feeling the time,
Desperate inside, but outside, fine.
We hold out until the dawn,
Gritty-eyed, tired and worn.

Tell me now where you want to go,
And tell me where your courage has gone?
Tell me why the past haunts you so.
Tell me where you keep your secrets, love?

Running, running, running away from it,
Trying to stop the pain but it catches you,
Hoping to fly away from the darkness.
Daring, daring, daring, daring to take it,
Laughing and crying and living and learning,
How to stick it all back together again.
You try to love, you try to heal,
You try to encourage, to plant a seed,
You try to be all things to all people – even though you know you’re going to fail.
And you don’t know why but it leaves you wasted,
You’re wasted cos it was not what you wanted,
And what you wanted was the simple things that you’ve been ignoring.
Now here it comes, now here it comes,
The moment you must make your choice, you know it,
Time to grasp that nettle that’ll keep you honest.

Tell me now where you want to go,
And tell me where your courage has gone?
Tell me why the past haunts you so.
Tell me where you keep your secrets, love?

Glitch Cassidy Dublin, Ireland

The album 'Input Output' grew out of a year-long 'write a song a week' project where acoustic folk influences were married with electronic-tinged live-looping techniques. Time Out London describe it as 'electro-tinged, bouncy alt-folk'. ... more
