Nick Byrne Marlow, UK

Driven by a desire to create something lasting and beautiful, Nick Byrne has created his 'Through The Tall Grass' EP. Various lyrical symbols work their way onto the 5-song offering, many based on distinct visual memories. With his live performance, the music takes on an emotive, intimate tone, as seen supporting the likes of Adam Barnes, Spring Offensive & The Lion & The Wolf. ... more

Track Name: Half
Don't lie to yourself;
This is the real world.
I took my time to realise.

Pictures fall, through the void.
A gap of twisted space;
Where I see your face.

I feel empty, unfinished, without you here.
I now know, you're half, half of me.

I step forward, you fall back;
Descend into nothing.
It feel just like a game;
One that I lose again.

Time will run, from us all.
I made sense, of it in my head.

Don't let the years, leave you behind.
I found meaning, in your eyes.

I feel empty, unfinished, without you here.
I now know, you're half, half of me... yeah ...eah

I feel empty, unfinished, without you here, yeah.
I now know, you're half, half of me.

I step forward, you fall back;
Descend into nothing.
It feel just like a game;
One that I lose again.
Track Name: Mind Maps
All my dreams
Seem to concentrate
On the past
And the things I’ve lost

When time, slows to a stutter
My memory unwinds

The world must end
For us to have time
To si-lently
Gaze into the sky

When time, slows to a stutter
My memory unwinds

Cast away
All of my regrets
Spare me
These needless thoughts

Oh cast away
These unborn promises
That may yet
Unravel me
Track Name: Birch Tree
Do you hear my voice,
Rustling through Birch tree leaves.
Floating on a faltering breeze;
Memories of memories.

We made a pact:
To keep all of ourselves intact.

Why did you turn away,
From the setting sun,
Summer had just begun,
You were the only one.

We made a pact:
To keep all of ourselves intact.

Do you hear my voice,
Rustling through Birch tree leaves.
Floating on a faltering breeze;
Memories of memories.

We made a pact.
Track Name: This Town
I’m gonna stay in this town for the rest of my life,
I’m tired of chasing the morning light.
I’d like to stay here tonight if that’s alright.
I’m tired of chasing the morning light.

Crowds of people, move like water;
The current takes me far from where I want to be.
Lights go past, I’m travelling far from home,
Fluorescent beacons light my way.

You say, “Don’t be too long.”
You say… “Come back home.”

…to this town for the rest of my life,
I'm tired of chasing the morning light.
I’d like to stay here tonight if that’s alright.
I’m tired of chasing the morning light.

Night comes fast and I’m no closer,
To finding out where I wanna be.
Lights go past, I’m travelling far from home.
Fluorescent beacons light my way.

You say, “Don’t be too long.”
You say…“Come back home.”

...to this town for the rest of my life,
I’m tired of chasing the morning light.
I’m gonna stay in this town for the rest of my life,
I’m tired of chasing the morning light.
Track Name: Through The Tall Grass
To put these pieces back again.
To separate solace from pain.
Hidden like ghosts in the grass;
Flickering scenes of the past.

Will you walk with me, through the tall grass?
Will you share your secrets with me?

I want to retread, footsteps in cornfields.
But I know it won’t be the same.

To change everything but not the name.
To preserve the photo but not the frame.
Floating barely out of grasp.
The overture can’t be surpassed.

Will you walk with me, through the tall grass?
Will you share your secrets with me?

I want to retread, footsteps in cornfields.
But I know it won’t be the same.
