about

Mixed by the incomparable Chris Brown (Radiohead, Pink Floyd, etc).

What talent scouts Taxi.com said about The Light-Filled Corner:

"Incredibly well-written songs and emotionally captivating performances. I'm not sure I can put into words how much I appreciate what you've accomplished...you've got to be buried six feet under not to be moved by the captivating performances. Lyrically, you're working at an extremely high level. It's all so incredibly appealing. Really looking forward to hearing more!"

lyrics

I wish I wish I wish I wish
It was all just as simple as this
And I could tuck you right into my sleeve
And take you along with me

I wish I wish I wish I wish
I was that and them and not this
I wish I could float right out to sea
Without all those waves crashing over me

I do not hate you, I never did
It was all just love keeping well hid
I think it’s time we took our chance
And blew it all on our own romance

Yeah I know it got the better of me
I know it set too many things free
But if you put me back on the carousel
This time round I will get off well

Cos I wish I wish I wish I wish
It was all just as simple as this
And I could tuck you right into my sleeve
And take you along with me

One day I will find my own God
He’ll be rough and sore and slow and odd
And he will take me by the open hand
Travel me to an open land

And he will speak of things I can not say
And he will walk me through those backsliding days
And he will wonder why I was never told
There was more than darkness in my soul

And I wish I wish I wish I wish
It was all just as simple as this
And I could tuck you right into my sleeve
And take you along with me
