Written in a Yorkshire wood, vocal recorded In Catherines home in Paris on a crisp spring morning.


I once met a girl, she chose slowly …what she told me

we talked for a while …she said something
but then nothing ...lips moved no words came

hides in her thoughts....what she feels, can’t be said,
they’re just her thoughts ....shes frightened others feel the same,
then she wont be unique again, … just simple jayne.

with lapwing she plays, and humms slowly ….for him only
whatever she plays, the bird smothers, with feathers words can away

hides in wood groves, with eyes never painted,
fringe grown past nose ....afraid if others hear her words,
her deepest thoughts wont be just hers ...shes hiding words

I once met a girl she chose slowly what she told me.
