Delicate Flame

from by Matthew Colin



All tracks written and recorded by Matthew Coin at 'home' in Mardi Bycroft's garage where he lived circa 2016-17. A space affectionately known as 'The Cabin"


Stayed away a couple days too long
Woke up with the changing wind
Blew me around while
Tested my sails
Carried me a note or two
And then changed her tune

Maybe could have been a better song
Ah, but the ending came through
Spun me around a while
Wrung out my love
Danced on my loneliness
And I danced on it with you

Drag my string if you want babe
I’m not shy around the dirt
To the cracks in the skin
Rub it in some
And I’ll be the one counting on what it’s worth
All this hurt

And if yesterday was still comin round tomorrow
Ah well she’d teach me the same one
She’d hold my hand a while
Then I’d lose again
But I’ll be what was lost
I just stayed away
A couple days
Too long
