lyrics

The day the pier burnt
Licks reflected like wisdom in my eyes
The day the pier burnt
The heat turned the past into glass
Smokey lens
Shattered glass

Tension rife with the commotion
Disaster, a heady potion
Flames danced on the water top
But the fire wouldn't drink a drop
And the smoke a murder of crows

Burning away
Burning away
Burning away
Burning

The day the pier burnt
Licks reflected like wisdom in my eyes
The day the pier burnt
The heat turned the past into glass
Smokey lens
Shattered glass

Night poured into the whirling sky
A heaving crowd sent awry
Flames ripped through and kept on rising
Nostalgia hypnotizing
History lingers in memories

Burning away
Burning away
Burning away
Burning

Now It's abandoned bones
Just a skeleton
Where the weaving
wind
moans

about

Natalie Bouloudis London, UK

'If you can imagine the husky smoothness of PJ Harvey and the rewarding textures of Anna Calvi working together you’d get close to Natalie’s yawning Grace Slick sized vocals and hugely poetic lyrical quality.’
