Gavin Harmon Imogen has incredible depth in all of her music- it really connects on a personal level. This album is amazing, it gets many listens. Her new single "Oceans" is worth buying on iTunes as well. :) Favorite track: Blue (ii).

Steve Lawson this is lovely. Like a morose Corinne Bailey Rae after a steady diet of Colin Vearncombe and Tinita Tikaram. Sad and beautiful. Worth a listen.

Track Name: Blue (i)
Blue as the bright sky, blue as the day
Blue as the colour of my lips as you pulled away
I was so shaken, screaming words you didn't mean
Condensation on my palms, couldn't feel them through all the steam

But that time it wasn't right,
Knew that we were changing, blurring our sight
You were losing colour and so was I
Can you please stay blue for one more night?
One more night...

We spent the mornings lay in bed with my hair untied
Marks upon your hand from where you sketched me and I felt so alive
Just being with you - was enough, was my happy place
You said I wasn't doing much with myself
But our love was so great.

But I knew it wasn't right
Felt like you were changing, blurring your lines
You were losing colour and so was I
Can you please stay blue for one more night?
One more night...

I never felt so warm...
When I'm lying in your arms...
I never felt so warm...
As when I was lying in your arms
Track Name: In The Morning
Wake up before the dawn and hear the stillness of a World that hasn't even woke up yet,
Fresh sheets on my skin, I almost forgot you left,
As my curtain opens I see the World out there

It's almost like you made the weather change
It's almost like you wanted me to kiss your acid rain

I know we messed it up
Awoke the thunders of our love
But baby I'm sure that we've got
A way of making this weather turn
I know we messed it up
But you'll be back before it's dark
and if you're not, well I'll see you darling
Meet me right here, in the morning

I'll take another breath of Tuesday morning air
and I wish you'd be here, but you left me last night
Collude with Zeus again, to make it rain on me
'Cause I've not done enough to ever make things right

It's almost like you struck me with a bolt
Of lightning then you waited for the rainbow, but there's no gold

I know we messed it up
Awoke the thunders of our love
But baby I'm sure that we've got
A way of making this weather turn
I know we messed it up
But you'll be back before it's dark
and if you're not, well I'll see you darling
Meet me right here, in the morning

---

The sun is injured, the clouds are too brave
They won't hold back - from punching rain
And oh, how long have I been fighting? My fists are cold as ice
Meet me in the morning to win back the sunlight
Track Name: Tightrope Walker (Feat. Steve Knight) [E.P ONLY]
Lion tamer, try to force me in a cage
I'm sensing danger but my pride won't be restrained

Tiptoe, tightrope walker
My safety net has come undone
I stumble and I falter
The end of this has just begun

Puppet master, with a face paint of a clown
Cut my strings and watch me tumble to the ground

Tiptoe, tightrope walker
I guess that this was not the end
She stumbles and I fault her
I hear the fake applause again

---

Tiptoe, tightrope walker
I guess that this was not the end
She stumbles and I fault her
and I hear the fake applause again
Track Name: Blue (ii)
Someone walked past me today wearing your perfume
And I thought for a second, well I thought that it was you
And I'll admit for quite a while, I was quite confused
Tell me, oh darling, what do I do? What do I do?

It's barely been hours but you're still a flower that's in my garden
I'm wilting away, but I know that each day you'll be fine
I'll still water you up 'til you never can stop
growing soon you'll be reaching the moon
Tell me, oh darling, what do I do? What do I do?

Now I'm feeling blue x2
What am I supposed to do?
You left me feeling blue

I noticed my brushes won't paint like they used to for you
It's like all my canvases said "that's enough, that'll do"
Erase all my sketches and rip them apart
'Cause that's just how it felt to be held in your arms
Knowing that you didn't love me the way that I do

Now I'm feeling blue x2
What am I supposed to do?
You left me feeling blue

No, no more purple
No, no more grey
No more orange and no more beige
No more pink on my palette tonight
No more kissing your lips goodbye

No, no more purple
No, no more grey
No more orange and no more beige
No more pictures of me and you
No more anything, I'm just blue

Someone walked past me today, wearing your perfume
and I thought for a second, well, I hoped that it was you

Now I'm feeling blue x2
What am I supposed to do?
You left me feeling blue
