First single from the #twelvetwelve project, where the band will be releasing one single each month throughout 2016... This track sets the scene for things to come.

A dark and brooding opener, starting soft and building to fever pitch, with masses trademark four part harmonies lifting the chorus to "singalong" status. Thoughtful guitar rock with synths, in a way you haven't heard before.


If living is without you, then I've been living on my own
Two hearts, fall outs, keeping on
Enough is never enough, are we ever gunna get our break
My luck keeps on

Moving in the headlights, in and out of our sight
Crying eyes and changed minds
It's more than I can take
Please take this the right way
Melodies and heartache
Fractures in the timeline
Crying eyes and promises
What we gunna do?

I don't have you
No I dont have you
Have we fallen through the window
Make up, break up's all we ever do
My love it's true
There's no fight in you
I've told you over and over
I can't take the cold of your shoulder

It's clear when I'm without you
That I'm no good on my own
With my thoughts, the forecast, keeps me down
Let's play the vicious circle
It's all that we ever do
Dust off, get up
