about

"(Only)Adore" is probably the oldest track that appears on the album, dating back to a more 'angsty' kind of affection, in which all imbalances in that affection were acutely felt and the source of deep confusion. It's a lot of fun to sing, though. Punchy yet sly. I was the singer in an all-girl grunge and punk-inspired high school band called Queen of Sheba at the time of writing this one, so that perhaps is reflected in the style too.

lyrics

I could be afraid. I could let you drag me down with you
I could take a bow. Leave this dusty stage with you but

I won’t let you down (no). I will not let go (first)
I will drag you down with me. If you don’t let go
In time. If you don’t let me go In time

I won’t say I don’t like you. That would be a lie
But I don’t ‘like’ you the way you ‘love’ me so
You must surely die-ya-die-ya-die-ya-die.. oh

I won’t let you down (no). I will not let go (first)
I will drag you down with me. If you don’t let go
In time. If you don’t let me go In time

I can only adore you.
So take your bottomless, Pathetic, pitiful and self-effacing love
To someone who’ll love you the way you do.
I can only adore you.

You’ve become familiar. I’m afraid I’m ‘fond’
I couldn’t live without you now. Don’t go listening to me now cause

I won’t let you down (no). I will not let go (first)
I couldn’t live without you now so
Please don’t let go In time
Please don’t let me go.(you know I will)

I will always adore you.

This is my first album and it's really pretty good. Before recording it with a killer band I did maaany years of solo gigging, collaborations with electronika, house and dub djs, writing children's music, singing lead in a grunge punk all-girl band, taking the bass line in 4 part a capella harmonies, making medieval music at school and singing along to Kate Bush and David Bowie records in the dark ... more
