about

I wanted there to be one song with piano on the album. One day, I found myself playing around with a simple melody on the piano in my studio. This song is like a portrait, it’s a portrait of ‘my girl in the corner’. It’s an intimate portrait of the kind of  aspects and details only lovers perceive and appreciate in each other, a portrait of the things that love makes visible for us.

lyrics

Come my girl in the corner
Even wrapped up you're bare
You move like wind on the water
When the weather is fair

Your pale mouth your weary sighs
Your southern skin your dreamy cries
Beginning at the end somehow
Drawn to the ether now

Come down my girl from your tower
Your heart is here in the ground
In the billowing grass and blooming wild flowers
In the earth that's ploughed up and down

Your dark green eyes your tiny feet
Your slender waist your lover's heat
Beginning at the end somehow
Drawn to the ether now

Come my girl in the corner
Near the window framing the sky
My hand on truth never another
Come and together we'll lie

Your honey tongue your quiet laugh
Your perfect fit my long lost half
Beginning at the end somehow
Drawn to the ether now

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
