I Am Lefthanded.

I actually am left-handed, just like approximately 11% of the world’s population.

However, some people who are not left-handed are I Am Not Lefthanded – a band I am head-over-heels in love with (evidenced by my previous post on them). Well, surely it’s heels-over-head, since head-over-heels is pretty much how all of us humans are built.

Anyhoo, I digress. IANL have decided to release a completely free EP ahead of their upcoming new album release, and, as ever, have managed to absolutely and utterly and completely and [INSERT SYNONYM HERE] leave me a wreck with yet more heartbreaking, heartrending music…

From the EP, I give you the acoustic version of Lifelines (which also appears on their EP “Time to Leave”). And if ever an EP name was a perfect reflection of a song…

A song about breaking up; about making the decision to leave someone, and the repercussions on both; about regret, about yearning.

Piano; a male and female vocal; guitar; goosebumps.

I know that this might calm down,
And I know I could sink and not drown
But treading all night’s getting old
And sunrise these days leaves me cold
I know, I can’t turn this around

Cause when I cut your lifeline
I started falling – so far
I couldn’t look back

When I cut your lifeline
You were calling – so hard
I couldn’t shout back

So no more of the long walks through town
And no more talks of who let who down
Though now I’ve said all my goodbyes,
My mind is filled with kind replies
I know, I know.

Cause when I cut your lifeline
I started falling – so far
I couldn’t look back

When I cut your lifeline
You were calling – so hard
I couldn’t shout back

Let it all settle down, let it all settle down

And yet I think I’ll miss you if I fall…

Cause when I cut your lifeline
I started falling – so far
I couldn’t look back

When I cut your lifeline
You were calling – so hard
I couldn’t shout back
