"Breathe" by Alistair Goodwin It ever lingers You’ve got my heart wrapped in your fingers And you squeeze It lingers on With a love so high, a love so strong And well how can I ? --- How d’you expect a love to last When it’s grown so high, it grew so fast ? And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ? How d’you expect us to go on With a love so high, a love so strong ? And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ? -- I can hardly speak With a head so strong and a heart so weak Well, how can I ? Try to make a sound But no words come out, I almost drown, And well how can I swim ? I can barely sleep. --- How d’you expect a love to last When it’s grown so high, it grew so fast ? And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ? How d’you expect us to go on With a love so high, a love so strong ? And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ? --- It lingers on With a love so high, a love so strong And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ? Head first and headlong Deep into oblivion I can’t seem to find my way out of here Die cast, damage done And it can’t be right if it feels so wrong And I can’t go back, I can’t go on Again But it ever lingers You’ve got my heart wrapped in your fingers And you squeeze You squeeze --- How d’you expect a love to last When it’s grown so high, it grew so fast ? And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ? How d’you expect us to go on With a love so high, a love so strong ? And well how can I when I can hardly breathe ?

about

This second volume contains 3 tracks which may be considered by some to include 'explicit' lyrics. These have been included as a seperate download / EP in order to provide a more accurate representation of the day's recording, in line with 'The Priory Session' ethos, expressly for those who choose to own and / or listen to the works in their entirety.
The decision to seperate these recording into 3 Volumes was made expressly with this in mind and as a courtesy to those likely to find such content offensive.

"Recorded in a huge, beautifully designed acoustic space, this recording was created without the use of any modern effects and with a minimum of post-production editing and electronic 'tomfoolery'.

The reverb you can hear is the natural reverb of the huge vaulted (stone and wood) acoustic space in which it was recorded. The seagulls you hear are seagulls. The distant voices are distant voices.

This is the closest to the sound of one man, one instrument and one take in one day as you are likely to find commercially available."



Enormous thanks to Nick Violet of the 'Priory Sessions' for... 'making it so'.
