I Lived Here Once

lyrics

i lived here once/ that's all he would say/ i lived here once/ then pushed the pain away/ she stood here once/ in all her blood and bloom/ she stood here once/ a softly spoken woman./ through the dry, broken vines to the door/ withers of grass sill cross the floor/ where the sky wears thin our thrush dim/ still stand, still remembers you carrying her in./ they kissed here once/ held hands and talked alone/ they kissed here once/ and found this house their home/ they lived here once/ and love was all they knew/ they lived here once/ until time bid her adieu./ winds lift the leaves to the porch/ past the veins of each step beaten skin/ the twists in the door sink into the pores/ still sung every word that built these walls./ i lived here once/ that's all he would say/ i lived here once/ then pushed the pain away/ she stood here once in all her blood and bloom/ she stood here once a softly spoken woman./ they lived here once/ and love was all they knew/ they lived here once/ until time bid her adieu./ i lived here once/ that's all he would say/ i lived here once/ then pushed the hurt away./ now its gone/ now its gone

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.
