about

A new pangfish is born every time your heart lurches towards your love. The ache you feel in your chest is the pangfish squirming out through your sternum and into the sky where it will swim across the world and slam into your lover’s breast like a fist.

This album is about love, with a sprinkling of distance and desire.

Written & Performed by Marcus Daniell
Backing Vocals by Emma Clark
Recorded, Produced, Arranged and Mixed by Toby Lloyd @ T-Lloyd Productions
Mastered by Chazz Hil-Hayr @ Wired Studios

Track Name: Ocean Harp Intro
OooooooOoOooOOOOh, OoooooooOoohhhhh...
Track Name: Do You Wake Up On Your Own
Before I open up my eyes I slide my hand
Across the empty space I have beside me in my bed
But your absence is a thing that I can’t hold
And then I know that I’m alone
Oh I know that I’m alone

Then your face comes uninvited to my head
To torture me with images of things I wish I had
Your memory won’t leave me alone
But these words are all I hold
And I wake up on my own

Do you wake up on your own
Because I can’t let you go
And I wake up on my own
Because I can’t let you go

When you wake up do I float into your mind
Are the memories that you have of me the ones that make you smile
Do you lie upon the place I used to lie to stroke your hair
And know I’m gone
Do you wake up on your own

Do you wake up on your own
Because I can’t let you go
And I wake up on my own
Because I can’t let you go
I can’t let you go
Track Name: Every Little Piece Of You
I want to see the freckles on your face from when the summer sun melts itself into you
I want to see you as a drunken disgrace, I want to know every character in your retinue
I want to take you to the house where I lived, I want to show you the fields that I grew up in
I want to take you to the farm by the sea, I want to show you off to all my family

Oh, I want to know every single little piece of you

I want to know what you’re like when you’re low, when your feet have been cut out from under you
I want to hate you want to scream in despair, I want to feel every feeling that can be felt for you
I want to fall asleep beside you at night, I want to wake up to the sight of your greeny-blue eyes
I want to love you for as long as I may
Until the landslide of time or
The thousands of miles or
The heavenly divide sweeps our love away

Oh, I want to love every single little piece of you
Track Name: Your Body
When you told me your name
It drilled a hole in my head
Now there’s nowhere to run
I can’t drown my sorrows
Because it follows me, even to the bottom of the bottle

Through that hole in my head
Your face crawled in and made a nest
Now your name and your face
Are both permanent things
I can’t get rid of them I’ve tried everything

Oh, tell me where are you now
Because I can’t get rid of your memory
But your memory can’t warm my bed like your body

Oh, tell me where are you now
Because I can’t get rid of your memory
But your memory can’t warm my bed like your body
Like your body once did
Track Name: Birds
I was watching birds today, screeching at each other from a foot away
Then they both took to the sky, flying off together like they’d put everything behind them
It made me think about all the ways that I could improve my life
So I throw my grudges down, spread my wings and lift my feet off this burdened ground

And I feel so light
Gliding
And I won’t come down for nothing
No I won’t come down

Because I know that it’s a waste of time
Building fortresses and weapons in my mind
And I know that what I’m doing is right
I’m leaving all my fears and worries behind
I flap my wings and fly
I just flap my wings and fly

My eyes see right to the ground but the wind in my ears is the only sound
The view is different here, the hurdles I hurdled have disappeared
If you fly this high, above the clouds the sun will always shine
Track Name: I Wish
I wish that everything I touched would become not gold but better off
I wish I sang like Antony, I wish my voice could heal the grieving
I wish that I believed in souls, I wish I believed in the gods
I wish I had a better half but on my own I am a whole

I wish I had love for somebody
But my heart has grown cold

I wish that I was not so thin, I wish my bones were as thick as the mountains
I wish that purely on a whim I could kick my heels and be swimming in the ocean
I wish that I lived on the coast, watching waves break with my dog
I wish that I could plant a seed into my heart and watch it grow

I wish I had love for somebody
But my heart has grown cold
