Always a riddle in the world she says
always a riddle inside my head
always a thing to wonder the way we come to be
oh it's a big old place for me, it's a big old world indeed
everyone is killing me and everything conspires

oh in dreams i have watched it spin
see a violent crack of atoms were all that comes in
oh in dreams i have lain in sin just to be the cracked and the cared for

how can i ask, ask for more?

always a riddle in the world she says
always a riddle inside my head
always a thing to wonder in the way come to be
oh it's a big old world for me
it's a big old world indeed
kicking my heels and wondering how I've been here so long

oh in dreams i have watched it spin
see a violent crack of atoms were all that comes in
oh in dreams i saw Aesop's kin
just a carcass of a man, i belong inside his skin

mmmm mmmmm mmmm

where to, where to begin?

i live alone now, i live alone in life with out you here

i may be troubled but I'm gracious in defeat
Oh i may be troubled but I'm gracious in defeat

Every time I hear this I can’t help but wish you realised John Smith did it first, and better...

An amazing talent from Devon UK. Ben cites John Martyn as a major influence, and it shows in this album. Highly recommended for trippy listening.{#Sunny}
A modern happy Nick Drake, the guitar is amazing on this track!!

No kidding. Why can't I hear this on the radio?

Heard a lot about this guy but not his music much. If this is what the fuss is about I for one totally get it.  Good stuff.
Wow!  Superb.  I'm hearing a cross between José González and Calexico.  I've been really enjoying the other songs by this guy on RP, definitely starting to recognize the name.  I think he just moved up near the top of "the list" for me!
first hearing : very positive impression, nice voice and (country?) background music, yet energy and harmony.... it makes me curious to hear more of what he has done :)
Love it!
I really am liking this just now.
WOW, love it. 
First play for this.....like so far!
