about

We have started recording this track and will continue work on it very soon. Charlotte's voice really suited it and it's a more relaxed approach for us to some of our tracks, but one that I am really enjoying. It's a song of growing older and trying to carve out a space for doing the things of your youth and things you love in an increasingly sped up world.

lyrics

I'm howling hold up all this time
I'm taking back just what is mine
I know that too late is tomorrow, so give me the night.

The night is kind when days are cruel
And though this darkness came too soon
Our reign is sprawling out forever now we've had our youth.

Oh this is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get when you're young
They say this is what you get when you're young
But your love is not enough, so give me the night

Is this really how love ends?
Can we be strangers again?
If I say I don't remember then say you will pretend.
That day is done - and done so well
It's all gone, but truth to tell
We know the past is just a story that we tell ourselves

Oh this is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get when you're young
They say this is what you get when you're young
But your love is not enough, so give me the night.

Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
This souls screams "too late is tomorrow" so
Give me the night.
