Product Description

The Day We Ran Into The Sea is a musical memoir that details the raw, universal feelings and experiences we all go through when dealing with break-ups and shakes-ups, love and loss. Each song on the album has a commercial pop sensibility in line with bands like Fleetwood Mac, The Carpenters and The Corrs. However, Sarah’s distinct, haunting vocals portray a more left-field leaning, reminiscent of Beth Gibbons, Regina Spektor, and Kristin Hersh. The album is a mixture of folky, acoustic elements and electric guitars, laced with Celtic elements (contributed to by producer Jon Reynolds, who’s worked with the likes of Sinead O’Connor). The album also features sonic contributions from Head (PJ Harvey), Adrian Hall (Sugababes) and Matt Prime (Will Young).

    • Lyrics

      Once upon a time
      All your thoughts were the same as mine
      We were good as gold together
      And the stars would align

      But lightening might never strike twice
      And sparks might never fly

      And it's a cliche and that's all I have
      Try to get over you but I can't
      Cliche not anything more
      But that's what I loved you for

      And though the songs have been sung before
      I sing along to everyone

      In those autumn day
      We'd hide away in the same cafes
      Watching the colors burn and simmer
      And get blown away

      But rain pours down over this town
      And life gets in the way

      And it's a cliche and that's all I have
      Try to get over you but I can't
      Cliche not anything more
      That's what I loved you for

      And though the songs have been sung before
      I sing along to everyone

      I still long for you
      My first tattoo
      My right and wrong
      You are my favorite song, sing along

      But lightening might never strike twice
      And sparks might never fly
      The rain pours down over this town
      The life just passes by

      And it's a cliche and that's all I have
      Try to get over you but I can't
      Cliche not anything more
      But that's what I loved you for

      And it's a cliche and that's all I have
      Try to get over you but I can't
      Cliche not anything more
      That's what I loved you for

      And though the songs have been sung before
      I sing along to everyone
      I sing along to everyone

      Holding my breath again
      Think something could be happening
      This feeling is a wrath from air

      hm-hm
      'Cuz you've taken me by surprise
      On the scenery and senses are undefined

      So I say,
      Hello winter, singing,
      Hello blue
      I'm stepping outside wearing my summer shoes
      Into a new night of only had that side of this hill
      Kick off the rusty colours and suck them wheel
      Like a red freewheel
      Like a red freewheel

      I was news and 16
      A hollowed heart inside the team
      The paintings from all of my childhood of dream
      From goat to grey

      hm-hm
      But you're everyone untied
      All tangled memories i got up inside

      Now i say,

      Hello winter, singing,
      Hello blue
      I'm stepping outside wearing my summer shoes
      Into a new night of only had that side off this hill
      Kick off the rust in the point and i stood them still

      Like a red freewheel
      Like a red freewheel

      Now you've pulled these broken colours from my side
      In-ambitions they were rented and bright
      Now to escape these from all this parallels tonight
      I'm just freewheel
      Like a red freewheel

      Hello winter (hello winter)
      Hello blue (hello blue)
      I'm stepping outside wearing my summer shoes
      Into a new night of only had that side of this hill
      Kick off the rusty colours and suck them wheel

      Like a red freewheel
      Like a red freewheel
      Like a red freewheel
      Like a red freewheel

    • Lyrics

      You see the truth is that I am simply useless
      At finding the right words to say
      And your fingers are frozen to notes you have chosen
      Letting the tune slip away

      When you shine so bright
      I can feel our eyes collide
      Soon you'll realize

      Why waste time?
      Your heartstrings are caught in mine
      So pull me up to your side
      And we will be alright
      You might be my lifelight

      And just hold still
      Hang by your window sill
      And all of this music will
      Still be there in sight
      You might be my lifelight

      Covered in caution and waves of distortion
      Your movements give you away
      And I'll bring the roses, write poetry and proses
      And prise you apart from your day

      'Cause when you shine so bright
      I can feel our eyes collide
      Soon you'll realize

      Why waste time?
      Your heartstrings are caught in mine

      So pull me onto your side
      And we will be alright
      You might be my lifelight

      And just hold still
      Hang by your window sill
      And all of this music will
      Still be there in sight
      You might be my lifelight

      'Cause I'm caught in this carousel
      Too tongue tied to ever tell
      And just circling 'round in the dark

      Why waste time?
      Your heartstrings are caught in mine
      So pull me onto your side
      And we will be alright
      You might be my lifelight

      And just hold still
      Hang by your window sill
      And all of this music will
      Still be there in sight
      You might be my lifelight

      Why waste time?
      [Incomprehensible]
      In time you might be my life light

      Pick me, I'm everything you wanted to pay for
      Pick me, I'm fashionable, I knew I could change you
      Pick me, I'm open to persuasion, I could be
      Pick me, I'll bite your head off slowly but carefully

      So just tell me that I'm right
      Tell me that this matters
      Tell me that persistence will pay off
      And illusions won't just shatter

      So pick me
      Come on and pick me

      Pick me, I'll let you pick my clothes out, my hair too
      Pick me, I'll consider a name change but just for you
      Pick me, I'll get you in the end just you wait and see
      Pick me, I think I might explode, it could get messy

      So just tell me that I'm right
      Tell me that this matters
      Tell me that persistence will pay off
      And illusions won't just shatter

      'Cause I have waited such a long, long time
      Just trying to make this matter
      Trying to get persistence to pay off
      'Til we're cynical and shattered

      So sit back, relax and open wide
      Let me pour some of this sound inside
      Count to three, do you see
      Just how sweet you'd be with me?

      Take the time to understand
      There's not many things that I'll demand
      Count to three until you see
      Just how sweet we both could be
      You could be with me

      So just tell me that I'm right
      Tell me that this matters
      Tell me that persistence will pay off
      And illusions won't just shatter

      'Cause I have waited such a long, long time
      Just trying to make this matter
      Trying to get persistence to pay off
      'Til we're cynical and shattered
      Shattered, shattered, shattered

      So pick me
      Come on and pick me
      Pick me

      Lost like the sun in the summer
      Lost like my west to your east
      Lost like an ocean of now and forever
      And like my comfortable years

      To go a long way 'round
      To find this out
      It seems you have so much to say
      And I drowned you out

      Shame that we didn't quite make it
      Shame 'cause you know me so well
      Shame that we'll wash off with sensory pleasure
      When I'm under another spell

      'Cause it's a long way 'round
      To find this out
      And it seems you have so much to say
      And I drowned you out

      Love like you've never loved before
      Love like you'll never again
      Love like you're lost in some old fashioned movie
      And it all works out right in the end

      'Cause it's a long way 'round
      To find this out
      And it seems you have so much to say
      And I drowned you out

      Take the long way 'round
      To find this out
      And it seems you have so much to say
      And I drowned you out

      And it seems you sang the sweetest songs
      And I'm lost without

      And you opened your eyes in a different way
      Never looked to the future
      And you play with your clothes in a distant way
      To avert a disaster

      And i'm just dying to find
      These fingers of mine
      Get lucky this time

      Skies on fire
      You look so good
      Skies on fire
      This rush of blood
      My heart rate higher
      And architects and artists
      Build towers to admire
      You control the floodgates
      And i'm on fire
      I'm on fire..

      And the words that you said never went away
      Happy endings and earthquakes
      And the look in your eye it can make my day
      When its gone gives me headaches

      But i'm just dying to find
      Some reason in rhyme
      Get lucky this time

      Skies on fire
      You look so good
      Skies on fire
      This rush of blood
      My heart beats higher
      'cause architects and artists
      Build towers to admire
      You control the floodgates
      And i'm on fire

      I'm on fire

      'cause those architects and artists
      Build towers to admire
      You control the floodgates
      And i'm on fire
      I'm on fire
      I'm on fire

      I never lied about this much
      I'd rather the shadow
      To be a girl with the golden touch
      Is just a part of the battle

      Tip toe around, tip toe around
      Without making a sound, making a sound

      But I kept dancing every night
      Then made everything alright
      Do you think that we'd still fight?
      When we're dancing, dancing

      'Cause everything's not black and white
      When we're dancing every night
      Maybe we should forget to fight
      When we're dancing, dancing

      So then I've practiced all the moves
      In front of the mirror
      Until a day when I'd have to prove
      That I can never deliver

      Tip toe around, tip toe around
      Without making a sound, making a sound

      But I kept dancing every night
      Then made everything alright
      Do you think that we'd still fight?

      When we're dancing, dancing

      'Cause everything's not black and white
      When we're dancing every night
      Maybe we should forget to fight
      When we're dancing, dancing
      When we're dancing, dancing
      When we're dancing, oh
      When we're dancing, dancing

      Well, I kept dancing every night
      Then made everything alright
      Do you think that we'd still fight?
      'Cause I kept dancing every night
      Then made everything alright
      Do you think that we'd still fight?
      When we're dancing, dancing

      'Cause everything's not black and white
      When we're dancing every night
      Maybe we'd forget to fight
      When we're dancing, dancing
      When we're dancing, dancing
      When we're dancing, oh

      When we're dancing, dancing

      I grew up watching white horses
      You grew up fifty miles away from sea
      I was eggshells and shy secrets
      You were wading in possibilities

      It's the middle of June and rain pours down
      Is it raining with you?

      Take it easy
      Don't let borders break your heart
      Take it easy
      Make your own waves where you are

      When the sun comes up we'll be warm enough
      Take it easy
      Breathe in light, my love

      You were drinking and daydreaming
      And I was decaf and sober all the time
      You would look for the right reason
      I was too busy wallowing mine

      It's the middle of June and rain pours down
      Is it raining with you?

      Take it easy

      Don't let borders break your heart
      Take it easy
      Make your own waves where you are

      When the sun comes up we'll be warm enough
      Take it easy
      We're alright, my love

      As these moments move further apart, apart
      And the latitude lightens your heart, your heart

      It's the middle of June and rain pours down
      Is it raining with you?

      Take it easy
      Don't let borders break your heart
      Take it easy
      Make your own waves where you are

      When the sun comes up we'll be warm enough
      Take it easy
      Breathe in light, my love

      Saw your picture, by the mirror
      Your eyes were brighter from far away, you said
      Since you joined us, since the circus
      You'd lost a purpose and wilder ways with us till
      Underneath the surface, down beneath the dust
      In there lies all that you've lost

      You're not as old as you think
      You're not as afraid as it seems
      It's not as hard to be perfect
      It's even less to believe

      Not just imaginary people
      Living love songs and dreams
      Still meaning to remember and capture the scene
      You're not as old as you think
      Just don't let it take a lifetime to realize it

      A magazine says, your life's wasted
      But you can save it with beauty creams, they don't know
      These lines and spaces, across our faces are
      Maps and memories of where we've been
      Don't let them prey upon you, don't believe the hype
      Don't let it weigh on your minds

      You're not as old as you think
      You're not as afraid as it seems

      It's not as hard to be perfect
      It's even less to believe

      Not just imaginary people
      Living love songs and dreams
      Still meaning to remember and capture the scene
      You're not as old as you think
      Just don't let it take a lifetime to realize it

      You've got a body of a summertime
      You're not a number in a chorus line
      You're out of prison but you still have some time

      You're not as old as you think
      You're not as afraid as it seems
      It's not as hard to be perfect
      It's even less to believe

      Not just imaginary people
      Living love songs and dreams
      Still meaning to remember and capture the scene
      You're not as old as you think
      Just don't let it take a lifetime to realize it, to realize it
      Not as old as you think, so don't let it take a lifetime

      We lay on our backs in the driveway
      made shapes in the stars with our hands
      Said we'd return every summer and no-one could ever change that
      but somehow we never went back

      With mist rolling down from the mountains
      you can't tell the sky from the sea
      can just see the lights down in Newport
      on a beach where the fireworks were free

      We stayed up all night telling stories

      i followed your steps through the sand
      they said we were wired up together
      until you left town with the band
      and i chose to stay on dry land

      Every day was a little victory
      something new we could be
      still recall what you said to me
      the day we ran into the sea

      Well, this stone that I have swallowed
      Isn't going down so well
      And this road that I have followed
      Is leading me to Hell

      And you said it didn't matter
      But I think you're a liar
      Is this one of your talents
      Stokes the very fire that burns you

      Each time you try to live
      The earth will turn below you
      The pressure is building
      And something has to give

      And when I build you a steeple
      You say it's incomplete
      'Cause you need the whole cathedral

      To satisfy your need

      And you're like a paper aeroplane
      That never seems to land
      Flying blind through anything
      Straight into the hand that chokes you

      Each time you try to live
      The earth will turn below you
      The pressure is building
      And something has to give

      Something has to give
      Something has to give
      Something has to give

      here i am, right here before you
      explaining it to you and it all comes out the wrong way.
      here i am, lying beside you.
      i'm dying inside and it all comes out the wrong way.

      can dry my eyes, stop fooling.
      dry my eyes and let it go.
      dry my eyes, stop calling.
      but i will never know why you had to go.

      it's no surprise; we were just reckless.
      now you're haunting my heart
      'cause it all turned out the wrong way.
      the room's alive with the memory of voices.
      had a ghost of a chance,
      but it all turned out the wrong way.

      and dry my eyes, stop fooling.
      dry my eyes, and let it go.
      i dry my eyes, stop calling.

      but i will never know.
      i'll dry my eyes, stop fooling.
      and dry my eyes, don't let it show.
      dry my eyes, stop calling.
      but i will never know why you had to go.

      now the weights of our love lifted into the air
      like the sigh of a breath held too long,
      or the souvenir sold and the secrets are told.
      every trace of your fingerprints gone.
      a new song await to be sung

      can dry my eyes, stop fooling.
      dry my eyes and let it go.
      dry my eyes, stop calling.
      but i will never know why you had to go.
