We don’t know what we’ll do, We don’t know where we’ll be, We don’t know who we’ll see, We don’t make any plans. We could be high or low, We could be fast or slow, We don’t make any plans. She said it’s just harmless fun, I said I’m not the one, I don’t make any plans. She said it’s easy for me, I said you just don’t see, I don’t make any plans. Time is so precious that I just don’t give it up easily, Time is so precious that I just can’t give it up easily. We could be tame or wild, We could be like a child, We don’t make any plans. We could be all at sea, We could be gone with the breeze, We don’t make any plans. She said just try it once, I think you know my response I said I don’t make any plans. She said you have your reasons, They don’t change with the seasons No you don’t make any plans. Time is so precious (to me) that I just don’t give it up easily, Time is so precious (to me) that I just can’t give it up easily.

No sleep will come, no sleep will come, No sleep will come, not for everyone, It seems my days of rest are long gone. No dreams will form, no dreams will form, No dreams will form, from night ’til morn, I close my eyes and all I see is black. It feels like I’m losing my mind, A wink of sleep is just so hard to find. Can’t wake the heart, can’t wake the heart Can’t wake the heart, now it’s come apart, I’ll save a piece for you if you want me to. No sleep will come, no sleep will come, No sleep will come, not for everyone, It seems my nights of rest are long gone. It feels like I’m losing my mind, A wink of sleep is just so hard to find.

What if you were never to exist? What part of you would they have most missed? Did you really try to leave your mark? Did you always answer to your heart? It’s hard to imagine that you’re not flesh and bone, It’s hard to imagine the fibres of your being not known. Don’t take advantage, don’t take for granted, Don’t take it all even though I know you can. What if you were never to exist? What part of it all would you have most missed? Did you take in all that you could? Did you save all those that you should? It’s hard to imagine that you’re not flesh and bone, It’s hard to imagine the fibres of your being not known. Don’t take advantage, don’t take for granted, Don’t take it all even though I know you can.

I gotta know that you’re with me every step of the way, I gotta know that your mind ain’t never gonna stray. We’re losing control, Give me your hand now to hold, I’ll try to do my best, For a safe landing nonetheless. Fear grips me as it does so repeatedly, We’re treading ground, no new frontiers to be found. We’re losing control, Give me your hand now to hold, I’ll try to do my best, For a safe landing nonetheless, I’ll try, I’ll try. 90% of noise, 10% of signal that resembles your voice. So soothing to here, it cuts right through this atmosphere. We’re losing control, Give me your hand now to hold, I’ll try to do my best, For a safe landing nonetheless, I’ll try, I’ll try.

Abstract scenes play through your dreams, You always ask me what it means, As if nothing is as it seems. The sunlight hits your hair, In a way I can’t compare, We sit without a care, While you lay your heart to bare. At that moment we were the only ones, Nothing else mattered and no-one had a hold on us. Time stretches here for you, My god I wish that that were true, For me the hours they just flew, And the day will soon be new. At that moment we were the only ones, Nothing else mattered and no-one had a hold on us. At that moment we were the only ones, No-one else mattered and nothing had a hold on us. Take the melancholy away from me, Only you can set me free… (repeat)

Originally from England, now residing in Chicago, I'm a singer-songwriter operating under the not too imaginative nom-de- plume Steven P. Robinson. Once described in some strange backhanded compliment as 'The King of Oxfam Folk' by now defunct music website Angry Ape for my beg, borrow, steal attitude to songwriting, I create mainly lo-fi tunes that I release as EP's. ... more
