David Ankers Great set of songs from Albert. The Promise delivers as it promises live. Really great to hear some straight up pop-songs, stripped back and laid out to bear. Luverly jubbly. Favorite track: The Promise.

This Door 03:00
This open room policy is getting hard to take, so can I hear again from Christmas Day all the good things that you said. Bruises black and blue they spread, before they fade away, but the light that's shining underneath, says maybe that's today. Well I can sleep upon the settee, I can sleep upon the floor, but I can't sleep beside your bed, because baby I want more. So I've pulled out the needle from the haystack, propped up my chair against the door, but my drum still makes a tap tap tap, that says baby I want more. This door, this door, is hanging off its hinges, this door This door, this door, I need some help to put it back, this door So look through the keyhole, but mind how you go, because you might not like the actors, who are starring in this show. The secrets in the details, the clothes upon the floor the empty bottle on the shelf and her moaning I want more. Well I can sleep upon the settee, I can sleep upon the floor, but I can't sleep beside your bed, because baby I want more. So I've pulled out the needle from the haystack, propped up my chair against the door, but my drum still makes a tap tap tap, that says baby I want more. This door, this door, is hanging off its hinges, this door This door, this door, I need some help to put it back, this door

Needs Must 02:45
sliding on knees, to follow your dreams the rope it is taut the rope it is taut it's pulling you back, like a kite in the breeze the rope it is taut the rope it is taut so, kick the earth with the others cut the past from your back because needs must, just as leaves gust in the wind the rivers you roam, have frozen to stone someone that you lost has a dream where you fight in a ring, but you can't see the edge with a smile like a cat with the cream so, kick the earth with the others cut the past from your back save up you love for one rainy day a storm is coming she said because needs must, just as leaves gust in the wind you're drinking a toast to what troubles you most the rope it is taut the rope it is taut

The Promise 03:13
when I come back, come back in from my daydream the promise is I'll get to you should my reins slack, dont' just stand there waiting, the promise is I'll get to you doubtless fire burns, come back to me safely because my heart yearns, more than it has lately the promise is I'll get to you, the promise is 'll get to you, well it all goes black and white when I see you standing there looking back don't seem so right when I see you standing there sleep it comes down, blinding me with memories breaking through the clouds, shadowing this daydream the promise is I'll get to you the promise is I'll get to you

Callers 03:45
It started with your hand, taking mine upon that land. Oh time it trickled past, slowing down and freezing fast. A calm collected head, has its doubts and i prefer them. What use is all thisn space if you are there, the wood between the trees. Oh, the callers take you. This night could be our last, the shadows fall the day has passed. Oh, how the light will sing, the end of darkness it will bring. First placed, but finished last, it's curtain call, you can't relax. Think of an empty room, the callers they will be gone soon. Love, love, love. Take this time away

she said, who are you and why are you my friend a leaf, upon a winters tree, trying to pretend that i am changed, i've tiptoed on the line to the left and empty space, but to the right is mine why, in this life, do you want less to kick apart the jigsaw, the picture is a mess from stone to stone, jump and when you fall pick apart the punchline it helps you to forget is this life, or a second guess I see, a forest, sea and sky pick your words and i'll pick mine because i am changed, i've tiptoed on the line to the left and empty space, but to the right is why, in this life, do you want less to kick apart the jigsaw, the picture is a mess from stone to stone, jump and when you fall pick apart the punchline it helps you to forget is this life, or a second guess or a second guess i'm changed
