This sounds lovely, really gorgeous and dreamy. A very interesting and original production. Great arrangement. Loved the change at 6.00.

    - David James

Obviously you are going for something a little more esoteric as opposed to poppy and/or hooky, and I'd say you've nailed it. An interesting song that kept my attention the whole way to see what was coming next.

    - Blue Bird
Lyrics

I'm writing the story of a fragile life
It's hiding here between the lines
of nets and barbs
and tempting worms
fishing for dinner
through weeds in the dark

I keep kelp heads
impaled on sticks
filled with smooth stones
from the beach
their unruly whip tails have whithered
they smile at me
like daffodils
and make a dull pleasant rattle

the fleeting fragile life of passion
retreats in manacles forged in the mind
the fleeting fragile life of passion

I fell in love
with a flame that danced
to the sighs of the wind
my longing is branded
with the memory
the cool black wick
locked in my embrace

I have a tear
embedded on my cheekbone
where I apply rouge
its just on the curve of my sight line
it mars my view
and reminds me I am happy

the fleeting fragile life... (repeat chorus as above)
