What talent scouts, Taxi.com, said about You Are All:

"I dig the tune, the melody, the hook, the vocal, the groove, the production, nicely done."


You took a long time to get home
Such a long time to get home
And it’s raining outside
Like it’ll rain forever

Inside the dreams of simple men
Are fading
As a simple man lies here

And in that ugly-beautiful moment
When you finally realise
What you’ve got, and how quickly
You could lose it all

Cos you are all
You are all
You are all
You are all

And the pain that had defined us
is now hollow
As the pleasure that now binds us

And in that awful-happy instant
You become what you’ve become
And nobody round here
Troubles you at all

I felt your heart beat yes
When you took on this whole mess

And the lights came on
When you started with your song

And the sky burned blue
Trying to keep in touch with you

And the time ran out
It ran out too soon

Cos you are all
You are all
You are all
You are all …
