  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    ***PRE-ORDER PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION - SHIPPING DATE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE!***

    12" vinyl pressing on regular weight black vinyl, with 147gsm premium printed inner lyric sleeve, comes wrapped in see-through polyfilm. You get to download the album immediately. Due to Covid-19 affecting our cashflow, we now don't have enough money to press the record up without asking people for pre-orders, so you'll have to trust us! Once we reach enough pre-orders to complete the cost of pressing, we will send the record to be pressed, and once we have the records in our hands from the plant, we will ship to everyone who has ordered. Stay tuned for updates on lead times - the sooner we hit the pre-order target, the sooner we can send them to be pressed! The plant currently think we'll get the records back around the second week in June, but this is a fluid situation and we appreciate your support and understanding in this weird old time! xxxxx

lyrics

I can't think back
to a time when you weren't there
when I cared about her

and it's always a sad thought
every time I tie my shoe
don't think I've ever taken a step
without her

when I ran ahead
you stayed put
I looked back, you said
“no, it's too late”

there was a fork in the trail
and I had to chase her tail
I couldn't imagine a day
without her

and I can't explain what she does
but she's sweet and she needs my love
and I care about her

and I care about her
and the moments that I am
without her
are all queueing up and looking to find
their way
