Track Name: Holly Partridge - Darwin
You're red and white stuff in a tight pink suit
You look like an ape but you're still cute
You got one tongue, two lungs and a heart full of loving blood

And I can't believe that you truly are
the product of an exploding star you're the
best dressed collection of atoms and DNA

You're a ball of light born of the hand of Aphrodite
Boy I got it bad, you're the best accident I never had

You, you are dust
You're heat and light and lust
and atoms and matter and I'm loving looking at you
You, you are dust
and we should timewarp thrust whilst robots rust coz all we are
is heat and dust

You're a tiger then a slave
You're a teardrop in a crescent wave, you fade
Back into the roaring blue
The big lost plane

You are only temporary
A speck on a spot on a map of infinity
A fleeting flutter of a strangers eye on a passing train

I'm just a bag of skin holding my beating heart in
Boy I got it bad, you're the best accident I never had

You, you are dust
You're heat and light and lust
and atoms and matter and I'm loving looking at you
You, you are dust
and we should timewarp thrust whilst robots rust coz all we are
is heat and dust

Nothing upon the past has power
Don't waste sand in your hourglass fretting
Nobody had a crystal but it's all water over the -
damn the man I'm who I am

You, you are dust
You're heat and light and lust
and atoms and matter and I'm loving looking at you
You, you are dust
and we should timewarp thrust whilst robots rust coz all we are
is heat and dust x 3

Nothing upon the past has power
Don't waste sand in your hourglass fretting
Nobody had a crystal but it's all water over the -
damn the man I'm who I am
Track Name: Holly Partridge - ILY
When you close your eyes for the last time
Your soul it splits like butterflies
You cannot deny there's beauty in dying

Fear and hurt dissolve
You're a million people young and old
and you cannot hide

From the lightening, thunder, shudder in the cupboard any more
Now you're light in the sky
You're brand new, free to be what you dreamed you could be
When you were down here with me

So goodnight not goodbye
I'll keep the radio at my bedside
and in the static I
can hear you say I. L. Y

If life is currency you spent yours on knock knock jokes and penny sweets, gave yourself away with every heartbeat
Now you're free from

Lightening, thunder, shudder in the cupboard any more
Now you're light in the sky
You're brand new, free to be what you dreamed you could be
When you were down here with me

All the love you earned, the pills you swallowed
Never stop the hurt
But you and I, you and I can wander on the Weston pier
Now you're the breeze on the water

You're brand new, free to be what you wanted to be
When you were down here with me.
You're born new, free to be what you dreamed you could be
When you were down here with me V.V.
Track Name: Holly Partridge - Secrets (Live)
I stayed over and you kissed me on the head in the morning
I could be in your bed for a week talking eating and yawning
No I don't know you that well but I intend to get to
You haven't seen my secret side but I intend to let you...

Into the deep, I talk in my sleep, I have dreams like the rest do
but the best one yet is...

You make the best fried breakfast in the whole of Dalston
but I'm way out West writing songs on the Devon coast and
I'm keen to see what we could be if we put our heads together
but I'm only slightly shy to do so, coz there's no question of whether I'll

Fall into you, but I swear not to bruise
I've got scars like the rest do and I'll never be brand new
I've got two left feet and I sing in the street
I'm often easily defeated and I'm messy when I eat

I've been real lost and I've danced poles
I've got bad habits and rabbit holes and I've got
Secrets like the rest do
But the best one yet is...
you

As this grows, I realise
that all my scars and downfalls were only arrows.
As this grows, I realise
that all my scars
were only arrows.
Track Name: Holly Partridge - Dear Hillary
Dear Hilary I know you think you're hated but you're misunderstood
Dear Hilary I know you change your body just to try and change your mind for good
"It's a good idea" that's what you want to hear when you're surrounded by your minions of 'yes' men.
So dear, I will be cavalier and say "If you don't change now, then when?
It's the fear of recollecting, drying tears in the mirror in the morning sun.
It's the fear of facing your own face when you can't bear to look without your makeup on.
So yes it's tough
and guess what, you're just enough
and guess what, you've never cracked a mirror love.

Dear Hilary you're painting on a smile but you're still the darkest blue
I see beneath the deep veneer, and I look a hell of a lot like you
So take it all off and shimmy what you've got, fill your head box with loving care.
We were born to die, not shine in formaldehyde in our underwear.

And there's a sinking in my stomach when I think you might be hung up on the same as me
Looking at each other in the mirror, we're the boss of who we want to be

So yes it's tough
and guess what, you're just enough
and guess what you've never cracked a mirror love

It's the fear of recollecting drying tears in the mirror in the morning sun
It's the fear of facing your own face when you don't dare to look without your makeup on

So yes it's rough,
but guess what, you're just enough
and INSIDE IS THE STUFF
THE GOOD MAKEUP YOU'RE MADE OF
and guess what, you've never cracked a mirror love
Track Name: Holly Partridge - Come Back Radiator (Live)
You got it, I want it
I feel it, the fever
It's not in my head yeah I know that I need ya
Coz their hands are cold and I want yours to hold now
I miss your fire and our flaming rows

Somebody is here with me and it's not you
I share my lonely bed with them but it's not you
I'm sorry I said see you later
Come back radiator

You kept me warm like a tropical storm
hot-headed and better in bed than the norm
Like summer to touch, I'd sizzle so much
I miss your paprika, your hot chicken tikka

Now somebody is cooking for me and it's not you
Somebody then sleeps next to me, it's not you
I'm sorry that I said I hate ya
Come back radiator

A hot water bottle, a bike at full throttle, an engine between my legs
So hot when I was on it, you could've cooked eggs on the bonnet

Now somebody is here with me but it's not you
I share my lonely bed with them but it's not you
They're nice and sweet to me just like iced tea but it's an igloo
My bed without you

Somebody is here with me and it's not you
I share my thoughts and bed with them but it's not you
I'm sorry I said see you later
I'm sorry that I said I hate ya
and dropped you like a hot potato
Come back radiator

I'm sorry I said see you later
Come back radiator
