Lyrics - Harvest of Gold

Big Love

Helen Croome

Big loves are the ones who let you down
But the little ones, never fill you up
Where will what we’re doing measure up?
What are we made of, big or little love?
What are we made of, big or little love?

Caught in our wonder we stay one while we figure out the state of our hearts
big or little will this last?
Held by our foolish wants along with our feverish hearts
A drift for a while then we reign in and find whether we’ve got big love

Real loves come as often as a breeze on a steamy night, or holy sight
False starts pile up and build a wall
What are we made of, big or little love?

Caught in our wonder we stay one while we figure out the state of our hearts
big or little will this last?
Held by our foolish wants along with our feverish hearts
A drift for a while then we reign in and find whether we’ve got big love, we’ve got big love

Harvest of Gold

Helen Croome & TJ

Harvest of gold
Harvest of gold

Feather tops all round and soft
Upon the wind they go astray
And golden drops are scattered by the

Harvest of gold
Harvest of gold

Passing through like morning sun
A waiting to be cast along
It’s temporary like you are to me

Sowing the grain, get to know you
Fields of the same, got then out grew
Turning the blade, separating
Cause when there’s salt in the grain no one wants it

Oh harvest lover, it’s how it goes
Oh harvest lover, cut when we’re grown
Oh harvest lover, oh harvest lover
Oh harvest lover
Feather tops all round and soft like golden drops we’re scattered by the

Harvest of gold
Harvest of gold

Plant to grow but then we’re done
Revolving in this field of love
It’s temporary love for you and me

Sowing the grain, get to know you
Fields of the same, got then out grew
Turning the blade, separating
Cause when there’s salt in the grain no one wants it

Oh harvest lover, it’s how it goes
Oh harvest lover, cut when we’re grown
Oh harvest lover, oh harvest lover
Oh harvest lover
Feather tops all round and soft like golden drops we’re scattered by the

Never Expire

Helen Croome

You told me words that will never expire
Watch what my body says when you’re caught being a liar
I’ll fire words as staccato sounds
Grinding my teeth, shoulders tightly wound
You told me words that I had once admired

Once I was sure that our love wouldn’t change
Oh how I’ve been so wrong, you’re the only to blame
You gently weep as my forehead frowns
Absent words keep and a heartache pounds
You told me words that I no longer require

But your heart was the furthest thing away
When you told how you’d chosen to behave
And the false words you told me made haste
All the tales and secret ways that kept their pace

Talking of faults, shifting blame from yourself
Caught in a mess of words when you try lying as help
Try to be stable while my anger swells
You’ve been unfaithful but my heart won’t dwell
You told me words that will never expire

But your heart was the furthest thing away
When you told how you’d chosen to behave
And the false words you told me made haste
All the tales and secret ways that kept their pace

But your heart was the furthest thing away
When you told how you’d chosen to behave
And the false words you told me made haste
All the tales and secret ways that kept their pace

Songs of Summer

Helen Croome & Steve Parkin

On a Friday night, a thousand years
You were some mystery, I saw you from a mile
Now you’re just TV and a permanent furrowed brow
You’re not the loving man I know
Where did those songs of summer go?

You wore a summer dress, I put down my drink
The world just disappeared, I couldn’t think at all
Now I can’t make you laugh, can’t even raise a smile
You’re not the tender girl I know
Where did those songs of summer go?

Oh we’ve hardened up, we’re paralysed like stone
We’re older and we’ve lost the need for us
We hardly touch what lies beneath the skin
Like words of faded ink, we’ll let it go

Each night a lover’s fight, always on the mend
This love ain’t fixable, why do we pretend?
I’m scared that bitterness and hate will start to grow
We sit together in a daze
Why did our songs of summer fade?

Oh we’ve hardened up, we’re paralysed like stone
We’re older and we’ve lost the need for us
We hardly touch what lies beneath the skin
Like words of faded ink, we’ll let it go

Where did we go?
When did this love fade?
Where did we go?
How far you sit from me
Where did we go?
Where did our songs of summer go?
Where did we go?
How far you sit from me
Where did we go?
When did this love fade?
Where did we go?
How far you sit from me
Where did we go?
Where did our songs of summer go?
Where did we go?
Where are our songs of summer?

On a Friday night, a thousand years ago.

Vanish

Helen Croome

I hasten my walk and I worry, has my safety been what I thought?
Look over my shoulder, straight away sorry, my heart is on rapid. I call out for

Someone, to save me, but help has betrayed me
I’m outside the reach of all my family, my sweetheart will watch as I go

Darkness descends and more worry
Have we all been a fool in this place?
Can’t stop from watching, over and over, should we see what he wrote on her face?

So lonely, so easily, so close to safety, so ever sorry.

All of us ache for the moment
All of our hope pleads
All of us ache for the moment
All of our hope pleads

We walk in mute and wonder, why her
The streets stay the same, but now we all know her name.

Challenge

Helen Croome

Got your words in my pocket, keep them with me so I never get too strong
You’re the reason that I never feel completely safe within my song
All the little thoughts that come my way, are hard to balance with my own
It’s all these words that will break me, tear my dreams and lead this momentum to stall

I challenge you to show, you’re safe behind that masquerade
I challenge you to show, do you see all that you have made?

No matter how many times I say I won’t I’m gonna listen to your words
The trouble starts when I’m feeling low and then a want of knowing lurks
Choosing not to think about such thoughts, a constant battle with my mind
Feeling down is a constant pull I’m never gonna see it disappear.

I challenge you to show, you’re safe behind that masquerade
I challenge you to show, do you see all that you have made?
I challenge you to show, you’re safe behind that masquerade
I challenge you to show, do you see all that you have made?

Hurtful ways are found, in words that have no sound
Awful words fall hard, upon me
Doubtful thoughts surround, from words that have no sound
Desperate words that were born from what?

I challenge you to show, you’re safe behind that masquerade
I challenge you to show, do you see all that you have made?
I challenge you to show, you’re safe behind that masquerade
I challenge you to show, do you see all that you have made?

Accolade

Helen Croome & Alexander Gow

I see a man, who boasts of his fame
Got an addiction for attention like a drug racing for the brain
He is a man, who loves to persuade
He needs a woman by his side every night as an accolade
Rounding them in, asking their name, he leans in.

Oooh, ooooh

Heartache will come when sober
Hasn’t been home to notice he’s older
Hurting from one who left him burnt
He is a man of faults, a flirt
He’s a fool

A male with needs, begging for praise
He’s got a taste for the chase all he has are his wicked ways
Never in love, solo by choice
How he gets them is a habit that he wants to remain always
He leans in

Oooh, ooooh

Heartache will come when sober
Hasn’t been home to notice he’s older
Hurting from one who left him burnt
He is a man of faults, a flirt
He’s a fool

Oooh, ooooh

Heartache will come when sober
Hasn’t been home to notice he’s older
Hurting from one who left him burnt
He is a man of faults, a flirt
He’s a fool

That Feeling

Helen Croome & Steve Parkin

You got it all laid out
The music’s thumping low
Your playlist played just right
Soft but not too slow

The lightings not too bright
The cushions placed just so
The time is pushing on, there’s nowhere left to go

The elements together form a statement as to whether there’s a vibe that’s gonna carry the night

You won’t get that feeling again, you won’t get that feeling again
You can try but you won’t get high on it
You won’t get that feeling again, you won’t get that feeling again
You can try but you won’t get high on it

The room is filling up
Bodies sway to beats
You drifted through the room
Face is flushed with heat
Your face is flushed with heat

The patterns of attraction don’t connect with your reaction and the scene that’s playing out has made you doubt,
forever that the moment you are chasing is a view always escaping you however many times you hunt it down

You won’t get that feeling again, you won’t get that feeling again
You can try but you won’t get high on it
You won’t get that feeling again, you won’t get that feeling again
You can try but you won’t get high on it

Pulse

Helen Croome

Hold, listen to my pulse
I have a nervousness that must leave
Oh I will say I’m not
It won’t help my want for this to be over

When the moment comes, it’s like a wild fire spreads
Holding to my body so.

Slowly, I wait to find the has wrapped around me and won’t let go
Darkness has led to distance, I wait in hope to find an end

Oh, I can hardly sleep, this has filled my chest and won’t leave
Oh, it will stay all night, won’t talk myself around, or stay calm

When the moment comes, it’s like a wild fire spreads
Holding to my body so.

Slowly, I wait to find the has wrapped around me and won’t let go
Darkness has led to distance, I wait in hope to find an end
Slowly, I wait to find the has wrapped around me and won’t let go
Darkness has led to distance, I wait in hope to find an end

A Lover's Spat

Helen Croome

Oh I think I hear, in broken words, a lovers’ spat
Voices to and fro, a woman’s cry, a baritone

Two voices hit the wall and seep in
No possibility at all of sleeping

Lying on my own, my body straight, I fear for more.
Holding to a breath, my heart skips, warmth fills my chest

Oh I hear a wounded call, a fallen heart, a desperate soul
Who begs for peace of mind, a want of love expired

I overheard a broken heart a damaged love to say
That all is lost we’ve stumbled hard there’s nothing left to save

Feet walk up and down, into the hall, a heightened sound
Thumping then a pause, the door slams somebody’s lost
The sobbing strikes the wall and moves in
A failed lover now conceding

Oh I hear a wounded call, a fallen heart a desperate soul
Who begs for peace of mind, a want of love expired

I overheard a broken heart a damaged love to say
That all is lost we’ve stumbled hard there’s nothing left to save

I overheard a broken heart a damaged love to say
That all is lost we’ve stumbled hard there’s nothing left to save

Oh I think I hear, in broken words, a lovers’ spat
Voices to and fro, a woman’s cry, a baritone

Lyrics - Until Then EP

Ancient Love

These seas have upheaved us
With strength of an idle wave
You’ve been happy drifting
While I’ve been your constant shore

My ancient love, my ancient love

You’ve been bellowed by the breeze
Drifted through the ocean free
My ancor keeps me from dragging
But the new tide is coming

My ancient love, we have lost our purpose
My ancient love, we have lost out compass

You left on a crashing wave
With power beyond what’s safe
There was no surprise when the mist arrived
You took me down but I’ll survive

My ancient love, we have lost our purpose
My ancient love, we have lost our compass

My ancient love, we have lost our purpose
My ancient love, we have lost our compass

These seas have upheaved us
With strength of an idle wave

War

So I sink in my thoughts
I see the fear in your eyes that it’s brought
I can’t be by your side
How can I know even with all my senses alive?

Slowly fades away
Can easily blend so thoughts don’t stay
Sounds that stop you cold
I’ll never know feelings so low

I wanna know if a crashing waves feels like war, if it feels like war
I wanna know if a smashing glass sounds like war, sounds like war.

How could I ever feel madness a terror when here is so still?
Sounds that stop you cold
I’ll never know feelings so low

I wanna know how a heart stays whole through war, how it stays through war
I wanna know how pain is ignored through war, ignored through war
I wanna know if a crashing wave sounds like war, like war

I wanna know if a crashing wave feels like war, if it feels like war
I wanna know if a smashing glass sounds like war, sounds like war.

I Was young

I was young when I, heard those words for the first time and cried.
Told myself I was fine, now I realise that I’m not quite right.

It took my coming here, to remember a ghost of many years.
Cause I filled so many hours, pushing tears across this town.

Thought I left these, feelings back there
Now they’re somewhere creeping back on me
I’m stick here, feeling sickness, beyond what’s really fair

And every time I’m feeling down, crawling over ground, already found
I need safe and sound.

You wouldn’t even know that I still feel from these words
I bet you’d never thought, I wonder if these words hurt
Words were thunder in my ears, I felt them rumble for years
I want so much to be free, but these words will never leave me.

Thought I left these, feelings back there
Now they’re somewhere creeping back on me
I’m stick here, feeling sickness, beyond what’s really fair

And every time I’m feeling down, crawling over ground, already found
I need safe and sound.

The Only Way

I will sleep with arms around me
I will keep myself calm
I will move for only breathing
I will stay here

I will place my hand on yours
The warmth is there, so I’ll hold
It will take all my strength to part, from this, from us

I still want you though it hurts
I still want you though you still lie
It’s the only way I know
I still want you though I’ve grown
It’s the only way I know.

I have watched your eyes on me
They hold me in, so I can’t leave
You can have me when you want
I am yours, I am lost

I still want you though it hurts
I still want you though you still lie
It’s the only way I know
I still want you though I’ve grown
It’s the only way I know.

I still want you though it hurts
I still want you though you lie
It’s the only way I know
I still want you though I’ve grown
It’s the only way I know.

Oh Darling

I will cope and you walked out
This was telling myself lies
Now I know, I want you, I need you

And I told myself many times, it’s dangerous to push
Be delicate with this love
Over you, there’s nothing I want

I hold out my arms, until we’re squeezing palms
Then you say, you say, my darling I am yours

It’s taken past what I thought to have this moment come
Now I know, I want you, I need you

And I told myself many times, it’s dangerous to push
Be delicate with this love
Over you, there’s nothing I want

I hold out my arms, until we’re squeezing palms
Then you say, you say, my darling I am yours
I’m yours

Oh, and I hold out my arms, until we’re squeezing palms
And then you say, you say, my darling I am yours.

Lyrics - Intentional Living EP

Wild Love

Helen Croome, Dann Hume

I was sour and I never wanted love to start
I thought, love keeps, for now we’ll stand apart
I kept thoughts on how to be alone
Oh, now I feel my love for you can grow

Make and noise so I know you’re there
Just a touch is enough for me my dear

Take up my heartstring, play me what love brings, show me your lover ways
Let feelings flow, tell all you know
Show me you would be, the one who could be, all that I ever crave
The fire of, my Wild Love

The way through our lives with another one
Is the lone way our hearts won’t come undone
I took some time to come to you
But, now I see the reason my love grew

Make and noise so I know you’re there
Just a touch is enough for me my dear

Take up my heartstring, play me what love brings, show me your lover ways
Let feelings flow, tell all you know
Show me you would be, the one who could be, all that I ever crave
The fire of, my Wild Love

Make and noise so I know you’re there
Just a touch is enough for me my dear

Take up my heartstring, play me what love brings, show me your lover ways
Let feelings flow, tell all you know
Show me you would be, the one who could be, all that I ever crave
The fire of, my Wild Love

Heart Killer

Helen Croome

I’m known as a killer, a heart killer
I’ll have it so you don’t’ know, I’m nothing by a mean foe

I’m gonna be your partner, your love partner
We’re gonna take it real slow, I’ll make sure that you let go.

I’m making you feel good, like you should
You won’t see this coming, your heartbeat I’ll be drumming

Make you want me always, put you in a love daze
Treat you like my baby, you’ll be saying maybe.

I wanna see hurt, I wanna see hurt
Playing your heart, treating you bad
Watching you drown, watch you fall down
I wanna see hurt, I wanna see hurt.

Won’t be wanting no alone time, no free time
You’ll want me in the evening, when you wake in the morning
You’ll know me as a killer, your heart killer
Take you till it turns sour, to figure out I’m all power.

I wanna see hurt, I wanna see hurt
Playing your heart, treating you bad
Watching you drown, watch you fall down
I wanna see hurt, I wanna see hurt.

I wanna see hurt, I wanna see hurt
Playing your heart, treating you bad
Watching you drown, watch you fall down
I wanna see hurt, I wanna see hurt.

Rose

Helen Croome

I dream of times that we talk
Of all the laughs that you brought
I never want to forget
This is the last time we’ll get

Of all the wants in my life
You would have to be the height
I never want to forget
The day that our eyes first met

I loved you since the note that you first gave me
‘I want to thank you, Rose’
Now take this letter I wrote and caress me
Do you think of me so?

Let me have all of your love
And put no-one above
I’ll be your perfect romance
Come on no this is our chance

Make your way to my side
You’re always there on my mind
I know that you wont’ forget
The day that our eyes first met

I loved you since the note that you first gave me
‘I want to thank you, Rose’
Now take this letter I wrote and caress me
Do you think of me so?

Once we meet
You’ll be mine
Love will call
Marry me Rose, Oh.

I loved you since the note that you first gave me
‘I want to thank you, Rose’
Now take this letter I wrote and caress me
Do you think of me so?

Love Fall Foul

You never kissed me the way you kiss her
You never watched me like you’re watching her now
You never wanted me like you want her on you
You want her on you, and I want you on me.

Time for love is surely now
I want a partner, I want a lover
Love come near lets not fall foul
I think I found love, I think I found you

We have been mates so long, it’s past the time to say
If you had known from the start I wonder if
We could be lovers now instead of only this
Instead we’re only friends, I don’t’ want just friends

You have to tell someone what’s going on in your heart
She turns to face you and your eyes with hers don’t part
Oh I think you’ll marry her, you need her with you
Always her and you, no there is no room.

Time for love is surely now
I want a partner, I want a lover
Love come near lets not fall foul
I think I found love, I think I found you

Why do I make all my world about you?
This hurts the most because I’m the one at fault.
You never wanted me, like I want you.

Lyrics - If You Can't Whistle EP

Days Are Over

Helen Croome

Days are over when I used to see
A chariot waiting just for me
Feeling slightly bothered by the light
Means I’m mostly happy at night

And it’s over, truly gone

And I’m dreaming, only in silence
Has this meaning?

Foolish listening is all I could hear
Now I’m smarter listening’s clear
Jealous whispers came from my lips
Now only sweetness and kiss, kiss, kiss

And it’s over, truly gone

And I’m dreaming, only in silence
Has this meaning?
And I’m dreaming, only in silence
Has this meaning?

Days are over when I used to see
A chariot waiting just for me

Hazard

Helen Croome

Have you every felt like life’s just a hazard?
Made up of tricks and dupe, for all the suckers out there
It’s gonna get us all at one time, indefinitely
Watch out, there’s no escape.

Have you ever felt like love’s just like concrete
Poured out and left to harden, to be walked all over
Sometimes you can leave your handprints in love
Watch out, don’t get stuck

Oh, this dubious life.
It’s laid out in front of us.

When you didn’t expect it, fireworks went off with a mass sound
When you think the worst is to come it unexpectedly turns around
When you didn’t expect it, fire circles around you
When you think it’s closing in, it unexpectedly turns around.

Have you ever felt like your world is riot-proof
You’ve got barricades and walls as high and mountains
You’ve blocked yourself off from the fools out there
Watch out, don’t get stuck

Oh, this dubious life.
It’s laid out in front of us.

When you didn’t expect it, fireworks went off with a mass sound
When you think the worst is to come it unexpectedly turns around
When you didn’t expect it, fire circles around you
When you think it’s closing in, it unexpectedly turns around.

Trailed

Helen Croome

I’ve trailed you far. I’ve leant across this land for you.
made sure that no distance could be found, and so on and so on.
I’ve been your constant. And I’ve been your pilot.
Directed you through all of the storms that we crossed.

Oh, troubles were no worry for your eyes.
Oh, I mended all of the hard times.

Oh… And how would you have gone?
How would you have gone?
Without my shoulder to lay your head on…..
Ooohhh You left me bent to one side.

Show me that I’ve not wasted all of this one you.
Make me see that what I’ve done has been well done.
Take all of my love and show me that we’ve won.
Together we’ll believe that we’re stronger than alone.

Oh, troubles were no worry for your eyes.
Oh, I mended all of the hard times.

Oh… And how would you have gone?
How would you have gone?
Without my shoulder to lay your head on…..
Ooohhh
You left me bent to one side.

Paper Boat

Helen Croome
Verse 1

I’ll make you a little paper boat, it’ll always keep but probably never float.
I’ll fold the sails perfectly straight, but I bet the wind won’t blow and you’ll have to wait…
For the current to pick up and push it forth,
It’ll takes it’s time to get out to sea.
A view full of colour and disguise,
I hope it takes you to me.

Chorus

If my boat won’t float I’ll make you a paper crane,
I think it means good luck in Japan,
But if it flew it would probably crash land.
I’m no good with origami, but I’m good at loving you.

Verse 2

I’ll write you a little French poem,
Ring all your friends, cause you’ll want to show em’
I’ll make sure it’s grammatically correct,
And I’ll narrate in your head with my French accent…
Est-ce que je vais te revoir?
Es-tu libre ce soir.
J’ai envie de toi.
Mon amour

He Knows My Love

Helen Croome

I’ve got his fingers,
I’ve got his hair,
I’ve got his eyes,
Surprise, I’ve got his humour,
I’ve got his thoughts.

I’ve got his love.

I’ve got his skin,
I’ve got his mouth,
I’ve got his ears,
It’s so clear, I’ve got his talents,
I’ve got his heart.

I’ve got his love
I’ve got his love

He knows my challenge,
He knows my plan,
He knows my place.

He knows my love
He knows my love
He knows my love
He knows my love
