Lyrics:
Measuring life without the use of teaspoons
Storybooks turn to songs of bitter words
Ask me if love is real, you ask me, if I’m in love with you, you ask me
I'll sing you songs of love you've never heard

High above it all
Whisper when we talk
Even angels fall

Jack is nimble
Jack is quick
Jack is starry-eyed he thinks he’ll never fit
Jill’s broken heart is spinning round
Turning circles
Jill comes tumbling down
Tumbling down

Filling our lives with words that have no meaning
We are too far too fall, too high to leap, too scared to ask
What does this mean?
You quote philosophy and ask me if I believe in fairy tales ask me
It’s only gravity that makes me blue

Dreams will often fade
Love can slip away
So much left to say

Repeat chorus

It’s getting harder to believe

High above it all
Whisper when we talk
Even angels fall

Repeat chorus

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
