Time Rolls On Time rolls on like a bicycle rolling down my favourite hill And I wonder did I stop to help the people by the roadside out in the cold? Time is long and time is short and right and wrong and time can heal but time can break and steal what before you could feel Am I learning how I should live? Have I understood just what I must give? Will I face torment when my time comes to leave? What is the trick I must keep up my sleeve? Some memories arrive, like an aeroplane engine rising up from the melting ice at the foot of a mountain one century on Am I learning how I should live? Have I understood just what I must give? Will I face torment when my time comes to leave? What is the trick I must keep up my sleeve? Has the prophet been, but nobody heard? Did the aliens leave when we became so absurd.?When will the love of power be replaced by the power of love? Underrated love Universal love No rehearsal love Emancipate it love Too long we've waited love Dissipated love Uninvited love I've taken flight with love

Always on my mind Maybe I didn't treat you Quite as good as I should have Maybe I didn't love you Quite as often as I could have Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time You were always on my mind (You were always on my mind) You were always on my mind Maybe I didn't hold you All those lonely, lonely times And I guess I never told you I'm so happy that you're mine If I make you feel second best Girl, I'm so sorry I was blind You were always on my mind (You were always on my mind) You were always on my mind Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died Give me, give me one more chance To keep you satisfied, satisfied Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time You were always on my mind (You are always on my mind) You were always on my mind You were always on my mind Maybe I didn't treat you Quite as good as I should have Maybe I didn't love you Quite as often as I could have Maybe I didn't hold you All those lonely, lonely times And I guess I never told you I'm so happy that you're mine Maybe I didn't treat you Quite as good as I should have

about

In early 2020, we were preparing to record our third album. When the pandemic took off we decided to continue with the recording project, but it forced us to change how we approached it.

The greater time at home coincided with good weather and a period of greater reflection had arrived. I live in a cottage in the woods and a two minute walk through the trees takes me to a river that opens out into a secluded lake. Each evening in the spring, I would take my guitar, mic, phone and chair to the riverbank and record the songs to a click track.

Sitting in this environment and having more time changed how the songs developed - they had more of a classical singer songwriter feel to them as they had to work by the river in the first instance for them to be considered worthy of being on the EP. By the summer, we'd layered our parts on separately and found that this approach really suited our music.

Come with me to the riverbank at eight in the evening in spring and let the songs mean whatever you want them to.
