about

Our song started in 2013 during FAWM.ORG when Kristi posted her beautiful lyric and I've created my piano and rough vocals. We've asked Pete whether he'd be happy to collaborate with us and Pete kindly agreed. Pete started working on it during 50/90 this year. Pete arranged a totally different style and recorded his instruments and vocals.

Thank you both Kristi and Pete for your amazing work and inspiration. You are absolutely fantastic collaborators and it's an honour for me to collaborate with you.

When the darkness comes
And you want to run
Breathe in the dirty air
And you’ll get the job done

Oh, you’ll get cuts and scrapes
If you try to escape
By running down the stairs
And blaming those in your way

[ch]
It’s a vicious cycle
And your boat is tipping
A vicious cycle
And the anger is ripping
Oh, let it out on the open sea
Life’s never what it’s supposed to be
You give and give then take and take
It’s never satisfying
It’s a vicious cycle

If you’re brave enough
You’ll get out of your rut
And sit down with your demons
To face the flood because

Repeat CH

[br]
No one can tell you what to do
And no one can make it better but you
It’s a choice we all make
It’s our lives that are at stake cuz

[ch]
It’s a vicious cycle
When our boat is tipping
A vicious cycle
And the anger is ripping
Oh, let out in the open sea
Life’s never what it’s supposed to be
We give and give then take and take
It’s never satisfying
It’s a vicious cycle
