Soaking wet and running through the empty streets of Hilversum She stops dead, you’re shaking now, ‘I think we finally lost them’ She raises her hands above you, She says ‘the truth is I couldn’t love you’ But she never listened to them Walls were falling in between them Sitting drinking in Vondelpark, hiding behind your friends Youth is sweeping through the trees; you’ll never feel so alive again The sunset fills with false plans This had been their last chance But she never listened to them Walls were falling in between them Years of crawling around make for dirty hands The distant sound of fingers that help you forget You should turn your head before you’re truly lost. But she never listened to them Walls were falling in between them

Tied Around 04:58
Late, Blue-ringed eyes meet every wave Flaked, Splintered bare feet long beyond care Shame, Long lost after fifteen ocean games Tea, Soggy biscuits and the taste of fresh fish Shut your eyes you’ve been hardly beat by seven years at sea, how could you ever leave? Stop blaming me, we’ve always been sinking and taking on water, water, water, water. Night, Damp bunk beds the back of your head Day, Sunburnt shoulders, gasping for air Held, Murmurs and glances, your lips held tight Daft, Wrinkled bound hands drift out of sight Shut your eyes you’ve been hardly beat by seven years at sea, how could you ever leave? Stop blaming me, we’ve always been sinking and taking on water, water, water, water. Land, A deserted beach, the smell of other men Squint, Are we on a deck or treading sand? Burnt, Retreat to our trusted cabin Leave, Sail out before we forget how to forget Oars swinging free, they scream and plead, as you’re cruising through water. Stop blaming me, we’ve always been sinking and taking on water, water, water, water.

If I Said 04:00
I’m falling through glass again; it hurts as I hit the ground The ghosts of my life entwined, which bone shall I break this time? You act as though you were a prisoner of mine, (get something done) But you just sat around, waiting for a personal call, (no motivation) Or waiting for a hole in the wall, Or waiting for an original thought. If I say that I do, - then I do. It hurts as I hit the ground; two boots bought in London town One is Gethsemane; the other is lost to me. And I forgot you were a prisoner of mine, (oh you look ill) And I had to play along, waiting for the statue to fall (no medication) Or waiting for something to report Or waiting for an original thought If I say that I do, - then I do. If I say that I do, - then I do.

Bruiser 03:04
The masts are down My arms spread out Like a cross, flying Dreaming And I’ll confess But in my sleep Ever since, lying Breathing Stop worrying about the things you can’t change Pure oil seeps, It’s seen for miles As it burns, rising Choking Black keys pressed down Strapped in our mouth Here we stand, sinking Dreaming Stop worrying about the things you can’t change

To celebrate the end of a year in which one of their biggest collective bucket list ambitions (do an album) was checked off*, and to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, My Grey Horse present "She Never Listened To Them"


*The bucket list has since been updated and now reads:
-"Build a human pyramid at the top of mount Olympus"
-"Make the grade for Elon Musk's earth evacuation"
-"Visit John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone emporium"
-"Do another album"

about

My Grey Horse Stratford Upon Avon, UK

My Grey Horse was formed of 5 friends who spent 5 years making music that anchored their existence.

We're really proud of these records but now it makes sense to move on.

Thanks to anybody who listened to our stuff, bought our records, came to shows or supported us in anyway over the years: we couldn't be more grateful. You've been incredible.

Love from,
Pete, John, Oobah, Joe and Tom.
