The First Singles

The First Singles EP bundles together The Little Things, Predator, and Don't Kill Me with a shorter, faster (funner?) version of The Little Things (the Shorty Pants Version).

You'll Never Know It's You

Do you remember me
Like I remember you
We were just passing through
We had nothing else to do
We were biding time
Captured in one place
Two pawns in time and space
Gone too soon without a trace
Why were we thrown together so long ago
Loneliness or boredom? Well I don’t care to know

Are you still around
Can you be found
What became of you
Where are you now
Woman, anyhow
It’s always been you
Of all the angels I have known
Who do I think of now
As long as we live
You’ll never know it’s you

You affected me
Did I affect you too
No questions ‘cause we knew
Our moments would be few
Were we feigning casual airs
Our indifference a lie
That day we said goodbye
Barely meeting eye to eye
We were never meant to meet again
But the last few seconds told me that
I’d never be the same

Are you still around
Waiting to be found
What became of you
Where are you now
Woman, anyhow
It’s really just been you
Of all the angels I have known
Who do I think of now
As long as we live
You’ll never know it’s you 

Do you think of me sometimes
Wherever that you are
Do you see my face from afar
When you gaze upon the stars
Well I must admit this base disgrace
That time has robbed me of your face
It’s cruel, it’s harsh, it’s hard to take
That I can’t see you when I awake

But I see you in the trees
I see you in the clouds
I see you in the sunrise
And every sundown
I hear you on the wind
I hear you in the waves
I hear in the leaves
And even in the rain
I feel you in the sun
I feel you on the breeze
I feel you in the mist
And in the winter’s freeze
Does your heart still beat
Does your body still breathe
Or is everything I see and hear
An echo

Are you still around
Waiting to be found
What became of you
Where are you now
Woman, anyhow
I’m still in love with you
You didn’t know then and you don’t know now
You got in there deep but I don’t know how
As long as we live
You’ll never know it’s you
You’ll never know it’s you
You’ll never know it’s you

Are We in Love

Many many moons ago
When I was a lump of mouldable clay
Some shit went down and I found
That it nailed me to the ground
So I went inside, to duck and hide
Long after the monsters went to sleep
What was under my bed was in my
Head busy counting sheep
Many a sunrise later
I was safe but empty and cold
Now you got me feeling feelings
That I can’t unfold

Are we in love?
What if it’s real this time?
Are we just feeling something
To know we’re alive?
Are we in love?
Should we ignore the signs?
Should we just turn away
And say goodbye?

‘Ditto for me’ you say
Same shit but different people and pile
We’ve all been through that ringer
But can still force a crooked smile
Abused and used and bruised
And occasionally reused
We’re all just rescue dogs
Looking for somebody true
So what in the hell do we do now?
When everybody else is kissing?
We’re just standing here like shells
Of our future selves

Are we in love?
What if it’s us this time?
Are we just feeling something
To be alive?
Are we in love?
Should we forget the signs?
Should we just bolt away
And say goodbye?

 
So here we are at the end of this song
We might shag, we might say so long
It bogles the mind why we can’t just
Find to how to get along
I might hurt you, and you might hurt me
By now we should wake up to finally see
We’re hard, we’re strong, we’ll bend, not break
Put fear to bed until Love’s awake
Now we’re standing face to face
There’s no monsters here in this space
It’s so hard to run and hide
With arms open wide.

Are we in love?
What if we take our time?
Are we just feeling something
That keeps us alive?
Are we in love?
Should we accept the signs?
Should we just live today
And say hereby
We’ll try?

Circus of Love

There was a town not far from yours and mine
Love had gone and left it far behind
And then one day the circus came
A magical revue
Bringing jugglers, tumblers, dancing bears
And something they could use

The townsfolk peered from windows unaware
That years of hate would soon be gone from there
With empty souls and empty hearts
The years just flew on by
Now the trumpet sounds, and the horses prance
And the big top fills the sky

Circus of love, love from above and afar
Circus of love, let go of your heart
Circus of love, lending a love so true
Circus of love, love take hold of you

Circo del amor
La magia está en camino

Then the town was soon in love again
People flitting ‘bout to find a friend
The old ringmaster knew the score
And cast a spell de amor
The circus then tears down
Off to another loveless town

Cuando te encuentres enamorado, te encontrarás

Love is a circus, a circus of love
Love is a circus, a circus of love
Love is a circus, a circus of love
Love is a circus, a circus of love

Far Away Objects

Far Away Objects is Chris Sunfield’s first EP. Filled with baroque and symphonic pop stylings, Far Away Objects is an existential pop journey and a clarion call to listeners to live authentically and realize their full potential.

Tomorrow’s Here
(Far Away Objects Mix)

We are asleep inside

We are the dreams we hide behind

Who we fear to be

Slumber in a bed of history

Full of scars? Full of stars is what we are

 

We need just one momentous day

To chase the past away

So make that day today

 

Tomorrow’s here

Tomorrow’s here

Tomorrow’s here

Big and bright and clear

Tomorrow’s here

The dawn of everything that you hold dear

Tomorrow’s here

 

We are awake inside

We will rise to find our truest side

Who we choose to be

Is not what happened to us, can’t you see?

Full of stars, newborn stars is what we are

 

We need just one momentous day

To make our beds and make our getaway

So make that day today

Make that day today

 

Tomorrow’s here

Tomorrow’s here

Tomorrow’s here

Big and bright, the end of night is near

Tomorrow’s here

The light and love we lost will re-appear

Tomorrow’s here

 

Wake and rise from the darkest night

Walk outside to a future so bright

Rouse yourself from a wounded dream

Live and love in a life unseen

Free yourself from the force of fear

Trust yourself now tomorrow’s here

Don't Kill Me

I want you

But you need me

So I’m leery

You’re legal

But I’m medieval

I’m weary

Your energy’s murder, it’s the reason why

I gotta be thinkin’ if I want you enough to die

Don’t Kill Me

Don’t Kill Me

Don’t Kill Me

That’s it, boo

I’m black and blue

I’m done for

Diminished

I’ll let you finish

No encore

We’d be up til’ morning if you had your way

But I’m not sure if I really want to die this way

Don’t kill me

Don’t kill me

When I sleep I have the most wondrous dreams

You and I are both so young and green

Our lives before us in a love so deep

Just let me sleep

Somewhere ‘tween slumber and wakin’

Dawn’s close to breakin’

Somebody’s shakin’ my lifeless form

Give me ten, I might perform

Just don’t kill me

I’m damn straight

This heart rate

Is making me feel infirm

I’m outta breath

From your dance of death

You get the thrust and I get the worm

How will I kick it when I finally go?

Heart attack? Fade to black? I don’t know

But maybe you’re the baby that’ll save me from

the home

Don’t kill me

Don’t kill me

Don’t kill me

Don’t kill me

Don’t kill me

Don’t kill me

You thrill me

But don’t kill me

Don’t you kill me just yet

Predator

Smiling so sweetly, dimples and all  

While you hide the trophy heads on your wall

Beauty and beast in brilliant disguise  

Bait for the broken wings that catch your eye

Coiling around, strike when they’re rapt

Love bomb your prey as they squirm in your trap

Practice you care in the mirror  

You’re a predator  

The pigeon is dry, of no further need  

Toss away, walk away, find your next place to feed

But they’re still breathing, after you part

Find friendly ways to continue to rape their hearts

Vanished from sight, but surfacing soon

To promise another chance to be consumed

But you don’t remember their names  

You’re a predator  

Swallow me whole  

Baby swallow me whole

Toss away, walk away, find your next place to feed

But they’re still breathing, after you part

The Little Things

We got into our cars
And we drove off to the stars
But we all ran out of gas
We never made it further than Mars
Then we flew up to the Sun
On wings held with spirit gum
But the Moon got in the way
Our flying days were over and done
Sometimes other worlds get in our way, and spoil our play
But this world lies before us every day
And it makes us say…

Somewhere out of this world
Is where you’d like to be
But somewhere inside this world
The little things wait for me
Somewhere, for what it’s worth
Your Planet Earth is here
(But then…)

We went to Saturn’s rings
To see the wonders that they bring
But they were made of odd socks we’d lost
And other missing things
Now the story rambles on
We launched a rocket from the lawn
But we forgot to get inside
We watched it as it kissed the great beyond
Sometimes other worlds, they get us wound, and let us down
But hope still springs around us from familiar ground

So the moral of this whimsical tune
About planets, stars, and moons
Is keep on chasing bigger things
But don’t forget the little things
Live and love the little things
Ah, the little things…

Live and love a little longer
Live and love your life a little longer.
