about

Debut album by The High Wire
Extended 9 track edition available for download on iTunes.

“… lusciously woozy affair, recalling the hazy, narcotic ballads of US dream-popsters Galaxie 500…potent stuff…” Q
" MBV - meets - Mercury Rev... gorgeous..." Uncut
“…a wistful dream of a record…” Clash
“Soft, Shoegazerish bliss…” Guardian
“…The High Wire’s debut is full of such glimmering, sun-kissed guitar pop that it’ll banish the blues in an instant.” NME
"The High Wire are lush, like Kissaway Trail hooked on Band of Horses or the gentler swoons of Mercury Rev." The Fly

Track Name: Saint Bees
Yeah all's become clear and calm
Washed the last dark traces from our eyes
Come on and take all you can hold
I’ll take all that I can hide
Keep open doors to your room
We've saved our prayers now
I send you my love
I’d be a fool to lay down for one last time
Now I’ve woken up I’d be a fool to stay tired
Going walking out with you my baby by my side

Cleared the clouds and found the sun hiding
Got it's reflection catching on your eye
One hand to pray and one to wave goodbye
And one to hold you close
Still waiting to be seen
Still waiting to be told
I send you my love
I’d be a fool to lay down for one last time
Now I’ve woken up I’d be a fool to stay tired
Going walking out with you my baby by my side
Track Name: Hit A Low
good god lift me up to the heavens above....
Track Name: Easy
My sweet boy why won't you stay
To make our home, to keep this bed?
This time I swear I tell the truth
I’m too weak to lie

You were my everything
Now you're nothing that I need
No nothing could keep me by your side
Oh I know
Oh I know
Oh I know you think I’m easy
Oh I know you think I....
But nothing could keep me here

So take my love and add it to yours
I want none from you, I can't hold back the truth
This time I carry inside yours and mine
You were my everything
Now you're nothing that I need
No nothing could keep me by your side
Oh I know
Oh I know
Oh I know you think I’m easy
Oh I know you think I....
But nothing could keep me here
Take my love and add it to yours
Oh I know....
Track Name: You Don't Know What I Know
Oh my sweet, oh my sweet
You fill my head with sugar
You fill my heart with stone...
You don't know what I know

Salt water streams carry you away
Oh hold close to me I’ll carry you away

Oh my sweet, oh my sweet
You fill my head with sugar
You fill my heart with stone...
You don't know what I know

Lord you don't see what I see
You don't know what I know
Lord you don't see what I see
You don't know what I know
Track Name: Rope Walking
Dressed head to toe in borrowed clothes
That serve as reminder of a million favours owed
That babe we're still walking this rope
Above a safety net of shared sheets and promises we'll survive
But you know by the end of each night
By morning's first light

I’ll have been to hell
I’ll have been to heaven
Yeah
And by the time you wake
Come back to you again

Lost all the action
After learning every move
For your sweet tooth I’m sugar coating every wound
For your sound sleep
I’m awake and I’m aware of keeping all the promises I can
Of keeping you safe
I'll have been to hell
I’ll have been to heaven
Yeah
And by the time you wake
Come back to you again
... back to you again
Yeah yeah
Back to you again...
Track Name: The Watch
Spiders crawled across your face
As you slept last night
Didn't want to try to wake you
In case you couldn't close your eyes again
In case you'd lie awake too scared

Still and stern I watch our home
Watch each one come in
All the night's stars, insects and ghosts
They all came to say goodbye
As you slept last night
As you slept last night

Doors slammed and windows smashed
A thousand planes took to the sky
As you slept last night
As you slept last night
Track Name: Bound To Follow
Bound for nowhere
Still I’m bound to follow you
Oh I know you may not care
But it's not cos I care for you

Just pieces of a past
I took you diary
To fill in the gaps
With words I want to read

Now every line I speak, I stole
Everything I think, I think I don't know
Lead me on oh honey please...

Well you're not the one
But you're the way I want
And I’ll listen and I’ll learn every move
No it's not love for you
But it's you I love to turn turn to
And I’ll read on

Now every line I speak, I stole
Everything I think, I think I don't know
Lead me on oh honey please...
Lead me on don't leave me be
Lead me on oh honey please
Track Name: Tigers
Every kiss you cut
Each word you replaced
All for good fortune's sake
You played along as I left

Come on baby who cares
We’re hanging side by side
You know you got yours and oh I know I got mine

I’m through punching tigers
Each bite marks how much of me
Is now yours to keep
You played along as I left

Come on baby who cares
We’re hanging side by side
You know you got yours and oh I know I got mine

Left to chance and we've been caught we've been kept
You’re half alive and babe I’m happy half dead
Your words won't let a man sleep
Oh no they just won't let a man rest

Your kiss returned
All yours to keep
