about

This is probably our most traditional folk-sounding and straightforward pop song.

Guy wrote the music when he was laid up in New Zealand with a broken foot and it's full of melancholy and seemed to lend itself to a song of longing so I made the words about the kind of love affair we are told we should have, but that are hard to find.

lyrics

In My Imagined Life:

Black-bracket birdwing against the blue,
A gold horizon, the idea of you.
A summer’s hazy whisper,
A touch so long in coming home.
A moment finally here.

In my imagined life…
No night will fall
In my imagined waking dreams…
No more alone
In my imagined life…
No hearts will break
In my imagination
Only one breath will join your soul to mine
In my imagined life you are my own.

Salt skin and suntans and windswept hair
Bittersweet music grasping gently at the air
A sunset aches in passing
A word so long in being said
A moment finally here

In my imagined life…
No night will fall
In my imagined waking dreams…
No more alone
In my imagined life…
No hearts will break
In my imagination
Only one breath will join your soul to mine
In my imagined life you are my own.

A vision lives within my body,
A truth that only I can know
It lies unconscious sleeping deep within my bones
To be awoken oh by you and you alone.

In my imagined life…
No night will fall
In my imagined waking dreams…
No more alone
In my imagined life…
No hearts will break
In my imagination
Only one breath will join your soul to mine
In my imagined life you are my own.
