about

The pace is lifted with the folky A Place We Knew. Here the trademark acoustic guitar is replaced with a bouzouki. There’s a subtle ambience to this track and the wordplay is a delight. At various points the chord progression catches the listener off guard, ensuring they’re always paying attention.

lyrics

That look on your face
I copy and paste
Onto another one
With wonder and charm
To hold in the palm of my hand
Just a memory

The day when we drew
A place that we knew
And all the colours met
They ran down the page
They dried and they faded away
Just a memory

I only remember the things
That really matter to me
And good things happen to me all the time…
I’m reminded of you, remembering me
Two names in a place we knew
We were leaving behind

I press for a space
To find and replace
Thoughts that are gathering
Into my mass
To hide at the back of my mind
Just a memory
I was leaving behind...

Just a memory
When feeling the heat
We try to delete
All of the time we had
These bridges we burn
Prevent us from turning around

I only remember the things
That really matter to me
And good things happen to me all the time…
I’m reminded of you, remembering me
Two names in a place we knew
We were leaving behind

Just a memory
