Album: High as Hope (2018)
  • I'm sorry I ruined your birthday
    I guess I could go back to University
    Try and make my mother proud
    Stop this phase I'm in, she deems dangerous
    In love
    The spelling is a problem
    As is the discipline
    And I don't think it would be too long
    Before I was drunk in Camberwell again

    But this is the only thing I've ever had any faith in
    Grace, I know you carry us
    Grace, and it was such a mess
    Grace, I don't say it enough
    Grace, you are so loved

    I'm sorry I ruined your birthday you had turned 18
    And the sunshine hit me and I was behaving strangely
    All the walls were melting and there where mermaids? everywhere
    Hearts flew from my hands and I could see people's feelings

    This is the only thing I've ever had any faith in
    Grace, I know you carry us
    Grace, and it was such a mess
    Grace, I don't say it enough
    Grace, you are so loved

    Uh uh
    And you, you were the one I treated the worst
    Only because you loved me the most
    We haven't spoken in a long time
    I think about it sometimes
    I don't know who I was back then
    And I hope on hope
    I would never treat anyone like that again

    This is the only thing I've ever had any faith in
    Grace, I know you carry us
    Grace, and it was such a mess
    Grace, I don't say it enough
    Grace, you are so loved
    Grace, I know you carry us
    Grace, and it was such a fucking mess
    Oh Grace, I don't say it enough
    Grace, you are so loved

    This is the only thing I've ever had any faith in
    This is the only thing I've ever had any faith in
    This is the only thing I've ever had any faith in
    This is the only thing I've ever had any faith in Writer/s: Emile Haynie, Florence Leontine Mary Welch, Sampha Sisay, Thomas Bartlett
