about

The first track on this EP was a surprise addition - a brand new Christmas song, and not one included in the original line-up. I was looking for a song that didn't encompass having a White Christmas - something that we frustratingly will never see here in Brisbane, Australia. My husband Paul dared me to write one, instead. Always up for a challenge, I did. I trawled through the voice memos in my iPhone (what a godsend) and found a melody I had strummed out on my ukulele earlier this year and thought it would work nicely. The title Every Lovely Word I Know came straight from my wedding vows to Paul (he's a writer), and the actual song is dedicated to my sister Lauren and her fiance Tristan, who unfortunately feel the cruel sting of distance all too well - hopefully not for much longer!

lyrics

Every Lovely Word I Know

December again, summer rains
No Jack Frost on our windowpane
The year's been long, I've sung my song
Now I'm headed back where I belong

The drive has made me, tired and lonely
I just need my one and only
Soon we'll be a family
Oh, I promise that I'll never leave

I'm coming home, don't need the road
I've never felt so incomplete, you're all I need
And I know this sounds so absurd, but you're every lovely word
I know

Tinsel beads, Christmas wreaths
Decorations on our tree
The house aglow, we're dancing slow
Underneath the mistletoe

I'm coming home, don't need the road
I've never felt so incomplete, you're all I need
And I know this sounds so absurd, but you're every lovely word
I know
