Story

This recording is really raw—it's literally the mp3 Kat and I have been emailing to one another.

 

Initially Kat came up with a melody idea that she emailed me as an mp3, to see if it inspired me in any way. I listened to it on repeat on my laptop, waiting for it to take me somewhere else. I emailed her the lyrics back that I instantly felt from her moody melody and she, in turn, sang them and sent it back a second time.

 

I love the feel of this one; it's about letting go of a connection that isn't healthy.

Lyrics

V1

You’ve gone and crushed the seed and now

I watch, my soul bleeding out

’n’ no one here can help me hide

The truth, it scares me

Oooooooooh, oooooooh

V2

I feel my vein walls, wearing thin

With every breath of you that I breathe in

Wash some light across my face

Need to breathe in peace, in a better place

CH

You’re washing away

Nothing more I can say

You’re washing away, oh

Where did, we go wrong; where has the, feeling gone?

Washing away

Washing away

V3

I’m breaking through somewhere

Choosing here and now, to leave your/this heavy air

Won’t let you, dictate heartbeats

'cause every time you win, someone will face defeat

CH

You’re washing away

Nothing more I can say

You’re washing away, oh

Where did, we go wrong; where has the, feeling gone?

Washing away

Washing away

OUTRO

Wish you had stayed

But you’re washing away

Oooooooooh, oooooooh
