There's nothing romantic about losing love and the person you most care for. And this is not a romantic song. It's about pain.


You just said “No”, I knew what it meant
We’ve both been aching to end the pretence
That soulless word, out in plain sight,
Cut us adrift. My heart sank right
To the bottom of the well.

Just want you gone don’t
Drag it out so long
Soonest ended, soonest mended

How long we have wanted this day to come
So we should feel better now that it’s done
Fallen so far from the happy height
Of our love. My heart sank right
To the bottom of the well.

It’s too far to see the day
I can’t reach out all that way
I hate myself


from Sad and quiet love songs, track released March 24, 2019
