Heard an old folk song about a man in love
He walked through frost and snow to meet his girl
well doesn't that sound so familiar
but that's folklore and we're a real-life broken spell

I'll never understand why you so forcefully pursued me
The singer who sang a never-ending song
Gave me kisses from rising sun 'til fading moon
Quite frankly what you did was just wrong

I always knew it would end back here
You urged me never to hold back then cut me free
but still could not just leave this tiny ruin to be
it's you that wasted us so don't you dare accuse
it's because of you, all that's left are romantic bullshit blues

All whispered sweet nothings
All melted shadows in the snow
Smothered by so much affection, I can now admit
i was blind... but now I must let go

Actions really do speak louder than words
Now I have set my own plan
Don't even consider coming back again
Unless you've grown from a coward into a worthy man

I always knew it would end back here, yet i'm worth fighting for
But I do believe that you will miss the mark I made
there was a truth within your eyes that cannot fade
but i just can't wait to forget about you
and finally be rid of romantic bullshit blues

It was just game, my loves in vain and wasted in the hues
of these lingering romantic bullshit blues

'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.’
