about

This song was written after the passing of my very dear Grandmother, Nanny V.V.

lyrics

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.
