The first single from Everything Trouble Meant, written in the heartbreaking heatwave of 2018.


I find myself praying for rain
And I never pray for anything
But this city could get washed away
And I think I'd be OK with it
'cause I'm coming to terms with some uncomfortable truths
About what really happened between me and you
And I want you to take all the blame for it
'cause I don't want to have to change anything

I just need a break
From this relentless summer haze
There's no air, there's no space
Just this endless fucking ache
I always thought that I would be OK
If I could just keep everyone a distance away
But it turns out I need to be loved
To love in turn and to really give it up
Yea, hold my heart out and show willing
To feel everything that I thought would kill me
In seven years' time I will prove you right
Look the old me right in the eye
And say

Remember how you prayed for rain
When what you really wanted was anything
That was worthy of some faith
To leave you humbled and trembling
I'm not sure I'll get that from anyone else
I've always been so proud to rely on myself
So won't you show me now
That to love is to be let down
Then to be raised higher, higher in hope
Than you could ever possibly achieve on your own
Yea won't you show me now
Won't you show me how
Won't you show me now
Won't you show me how
