Next up is 'Where Darkness Hides', which is a joyful homage to The Smiths. This elegant arrangement, beautifully played by Denney and the assembled musicians provides the platform for a tale of two souls that will never settle into blissful coexistence, but who would be diminished without each other. Once again Roisin O’Hagan joins him on vocals and lifts the bittersweet tune to its emotional high.

lyrics

It’s the feelings that I’m showing
It’s the knowing that you care
See the rain against my window
Then you’ll understand my pain

We both know it’s true
You’re taking sides
But I’m asking you to wait
When the darkness hides
Where darkness hides

When your atoms are colliding
Mine align into a row
There’s a reason why we landed
And we’re stranded in this time

We both know it’s true
You’re taking sides
But I’m asking you to wait
When the darkness hides
Where darkness hides

Now we’re running round in circles
Jumping hurdles in my mind
But we can’t escape the shadows of love

We both know it’s true
You’re taking sides
But I’m asking you to wait
When the darkness hides
Where darkness hides
