Both these songs were first released as limited-edition vinyls on the wonderful I Will Play This Song Once Again Records.

They are a bit scruffy, but they say what they mean.

All the lyrics were written shortly after a visit to Kerry, where I grew up, and for some reason they feel like Kerry songs. I'm not sure why.

Track Name: Lazy Beds
Are you looking for something
That keeps you from home?
I know the house goes cold without you all alone

Are you looking for somewhere
To lay your head?
More than a long abandoned painting for a bed

You painted her ceiling
To glow in the dark
With stars so close she can't know they're so far

You are full of distractions
And songs to sing
Sometimes the light catches your eyes like some wild thing

Know that the sky looks sad and empty since you left
And if I could find you I would show you what it meant

But I will

I remember my first home
A growing thing
A house that knows the words we learned to sing

I haven't been back there
To our lazy beds
The same fields that were tended by the hands we never held

Know that our house was full despite the words unsaid
And if I could find you I would show you what it meant
But I will
Track Name: Stacks, Mountains
You come to me when your nights don't seem to end
Come to me when your fire has been spent
When you're written out
Come to me when the house blows down
Come to me when there's no one left in town
And you want me to be there

These are the walls of a broken house
These are the lies you told to get me out
Now we pass each other by
Sails silent at night

Come to me when your house burns down
Come to me when you're buried in the ground
And you want me to be free
