I don't know what I'm meant to do these days I wake up feeling something new can't shake my bones and brain wanting to wrap my arms around you and count to a million and twenty two you are always in the know and always tell me how to take it slow so before I have to get up and go I'll wrap my arms around you and count to a million and twenty two that's all I really want to do I don't know how it's meant to be these days I'm sinking like a stone you see but you can stop me drowning in this sea if I wrap my arms around you and count to a million and twenty two that's all I really want to do is wrap my arms around you

I am only for the birds and bees you're so lovely with the world at your feet sit so lonely with the man in mirror he's so ugly don't come any nearer and it don't take a miracle to know what's right don't be so cynical in the morning light I am only for the wind in the trees you're so lovely staring right back at me but it won't take a miracle to know what's coming round and I won't be so cynical next time around and it don't take a miracle to know what's right please don't be so cynical in the morning light

first foot forward ten feet back why do I always come in last? when I'm in this mood shit don't last I'm just sinking to the bottom of the glass then I see you heart on sleeve how do we ever learn to grieve? crimson blood on blank white sheets see me running in the midnight heat and I wasted time chiming for so long And I tasted wine listening for a song and when georgia smiles the whisky crimes and the parallel lines lead me back to love
13.
Only Dreams 02:18
I am alive semmelweis on my mind do you know where I go to hide? it's alright vivid dreams at night with dim lights and skies but you you're always a star and I know you would hate that they are only dreams
14.
I don't want no crime sleep in murder times fine, film, watch me if you have the time playing with the signs messing with desire keep up failing to cross the line eyes are always blind how they shine fine go leave me I got my wine under arms entwined shall I call out were you ever mine? bodies left entwined figure eight design shall I call out were you ever mine?

A Mud Course 00:54
16.
Body Of Love 03:25
you could be the one who comes and saves me you could be the one I call my own I could be the one who helps you, maybe? talk about it all 'till the morning sun and I don't mind wasting time hanging on the line with the morning dove and I don't mind finding time crossing over lines for your body of love talk about a dream to start all over make a new life to shrine our love leave on saturday in the early morning jump aboard the train and huddle up and I don't mind wasting time sitting by your side holding hands and I don't mind it ain't no bind staring in your eyes and making plans forever and a day we'll be together no matter what they say I'm always yours even in the grave I'll lie beside you hold on to your hand forever yours and I don't mind wasting time hanging on the line with the morning dove and I don't mind drinking wine celebrate the time it's only us and I don't mind it ain't no bind and I don't mind finding time crossing over lines for your body of love your body of love
17.
all the money in my palm is taken from me all the lovers in their graves rise above me you are always in my heart and always will be we all knew it from the start we would always be please try as hard as you like to be a good boy and I'll try as often as I lie to be a good boy all the people on my street do not know me though they know they often meet versions of me please try as often as I sigh to be a good boy and I'll try as often as you cry to be a good boy don't hide come out into the light and be a good boy I'll buy the whole world if you like but be a good boy be a good boy
18.
all of the time our skins wearing thin from the moles on our feet to our crinkle cracked grin to dream of death is considered a sin but before you die you must choose a hymn be someone else so that they let you in and drink 'till your sick on that cheap nasty gin you wake fully clothed and stink like a bin in society's eyes it's considered a win my minds feeling fuzzy my heart beats like tin oh jeez! I am hungry! haven't eaten a thing been too busy caring for the kith and the kin please make me a meal with your love stirred in now we are restless but we start to sing from the bright of the dawn to the night drawn with ink the neighbours complain of the unholy din bring a gift of magnesium and a bag full of zinc the crows they are crowing the flowers in spring and all of the daisy's form their own rings we must worship the queens and forget about kings that's what we'll teach you 'till the day you sprout wings now is the time our knees start to creak soon we won't even be able to speak but before that time comes let's fall in a heap and wrap our arms round you and kiss on your cheek for you're not a baby go out and seek for you are so grown now go out and seek

about

David Bowie once said:

"Ageing is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been"

As I enter my 40th spin around the sun, those wise words definitely ring true. I don't think I have ever felt as comfortable with who I am as I do right now.

And that feeling of just being me and not giving a shit has allowed my music to become ever more expressive and free and, to my ears, more interesting, melodic and simply... more like the music I want to make.

Cheesy eh?

But I genuinely believe that there was no way I could have made this album at 18, 21 or even 30. I was too obsessed in being 'successful'. Too hung up on a "sound". Too worried about what "others might think".

Since I turned 30 and been putting music out as GGB, I feel like I have been building up to this album. Every release, every album, EP and single has been a step up. Another move closer to making this collection of songs. Another stride nearer to being me.

I feel like this album is pretty much the pinnacle of the song writing mountain I have been climbing for the last ten years. And now, listening back over the 18 tracks, I can safely say the climb has definitely been worth it.

thank you for listening and I hope you like it x
