With all the snares and all the traps I’ve built I never thought I would be the one to fall in I was so distracted by the prize I had no idea I’d been left behind in the forest to become my own kill Well maybe if I hadn’t been so foolish as to push you all away I wouldn’t be here still with all the snares and all the traps I built All I did was try to catch you out I never knew love could be a thing to harness and then harvest Oh, what a life I’ve missed Well maybe if I hadn’t been so stupid as to push you all away I wouldn’t be here still with all the snares and all the traps I built And I’ve wasted all my time trying to convince myself I was right But what’s the difference if another bumbling fool falls by the wayside? And what have I to show for it but a box of my broken pride? And all the snares and all the traps I built

Speak To Me 03:19
With all the passersby so silent It startles when you hear the sound Of a line cast in the chaos That proves that there’s life left there in the crowd Speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat I want to hear the rush of life through every melody From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me There must be a thousand ways to hear the truth But when it’s in your voice it means the most And when you look in my eyes I start to tremble Just like I have seen the face of my own ghost So speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat I want to hear the rush of life through every melody From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me Your life paints every word so your words mean everything Every soul you’ve ever known, every place you’ve ever been All the things that you once were, everything you’ll ever be So don’t stop speaking Speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat So speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat I want to hear the rush of life through every melody From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me

Rabbit Hole 03:38
Where have you gone? Where do you go? These hidden places nobody knows How far can you run? How well can you hide? When what you’re running from is on the inside You can’t un-see all the things that you’ve seen If you cannot do it for yourself, would you do this for me? Cause I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again Why do you feed the old enemy? The one that pulls the earth from under your feet I have seen this change in you It flows through everything that you say and do I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again No I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again and again and again Again and again and again Again and again and again Again and again and again Where have you gone? Where do you go? These hidden places nobody knows You can’t un-see all the things that you’ve seen If you cannot do it for yourself, would you do this for me? Cause you won’t un-feel all the things that you’ve felt If you never let go of the cards you’ve been dealt No I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again and again

Still In Bed 04:31
I lay trapped in amber And you say that I don’t care But you’ll never know what you do to me That the things you say shake the core of me Darling, you’ve floored me again My limbs feel like they’re filled with lead I’m still in bed with the words that you said when you left Well it’s safe to say you never needed a weapon And I’m sure I’m still carrying your venom And you’ll never know what you do to me That the things you say shake the core of me I wish I could say that I hadn’t seen this coming Cause it’s been breaking in slow motion Darling, you’ve floored me again My limbs feel like they’re filled with lead I’m still in bed with the words that you said when you left It’s been breaking in slow motion Darling, you’ve floored me again My limbs feel like they’re filled with lead I’m still in bed with the words that you said I’ve tried my best but they won’t leave my head I’m still in bed with the words that you said when you left

You are the captain, I am the sea birds I am the row boat, you are the tide You were the searchlight but I had gone missing All that I wanted was to be there You are the headline, I am the misprint You are the lion, I am the mouse You are the bloodline, I am just bleeding All that I wanted was to be there All that I wanted was to be there Now that you’ve drawn the line Let me say one last time All that I wanted was to be there Did you reel me in just to cut me loose? Is there anything that means that much to you? So go play the apple tree while I struggle to take root But it’s not your fault that I’m barely hanging on All that I wanted was to be there I didn’t need some big part Not the flame nor the spark All that I wanted was to be there You are the captain, I am the sea birds I am the row boat and you are the tide You are the bloodline, I am just bleeding All that I wanted was to be there All that I wanted was to be there

about

Luke James Williams England, UK

Light and dark, ugly and beautiful, happy and sad, fearful and brave, the music of singer songwriter Luke James Williams reflects the opposing forces and wonderful chaos of the world around us. Combining the raw power of PJ Harvey with the delicate sensitivity of Sufjan Stevens, Williams paints pictures with words and sings them in his own distinctly British voice. ... more
