The Music

From our latest self titled album:
Room For Us All Willing Salt Accolades

From our previous album 'Belle Curve':
Coming Out Blues Triage


Accolades

New love and young love have many advocates. The sublime qualities of long standing passion are less discussed. Willing speaks to the joys and
pleasures of relationships that last. This is not a song about the exciting first sparks of passion, but rather, about the intense heat that only a fire that burns a long time with substantial fuel can produce.

Have a listen.

may not be as young
may not be as strong
but Iíve never been so willing
may not be the one
propelled by urgency every moment
darling if we take the time
savouring the known sublime
you know it will be thrilling
you know it will be thrilling


privilege the new
itís what weíre taught to do
credit where itís due
is how I want to be with you
I can trade-in, I can lay-by
taking every chance that comes by
there might be a few!
I can learn to be a keeper
of the wilder and the deeper
and embrace the two
yeah

may not be as young
may not be as strong
but Iíve never been so willing
may not be the one
propelled by urgency every moment
darling if we take the time
savouring the known sublime
you know it will be thrilling
you know it will be thrilling
you know it will be thrilling

who sets limits to
the ways that I can be with you
this is bold and true
and weíve learned a thing or two (about each other)
there is danger in assuming
that a fire is less consuming
when it is not new
Ď cause a mutual decision
or spontaneous ignition
can be passionís cue
