First single from my upcoming album (spring 2014).

The piano was recorded in St-John's church in Kolkata (Calcutta), India.

Thank you Johnny Purty, you're one of the most interesting man I've ever met and you can certainly rock the organ like no one else!

When I saw the scale of the spoils
Your bare-naked feet blend with soil
The noise of the street drowning us
I wanted out

You couldn’t do as I did
Leave all behind and escape
Cover your tracks and your fate
No matter how hard you try
You’ll stay inside

You wanted out
I couldn’t get it
You wanted out
I couldn’t give it

Is there anything that I can do to save you from it all?
Telling you how good you are won’t ease the fall

But I’m sure you’ll find your own way
Planting the seeds every day
Changing the lines of the script
Re-writing life as a gift

You wanted out
I couldn’t give it

You wanted out
You were born in it

You wanted out
I couldn’t give it

You wanted out
You’ll make it out your own way
