Lost Your Crown, from The Woods' Debut EP 'The Start' out 28 August 2015.


Lost your crown
You always wear a frown.
Hold your tongue
It's too late.
Your heart is sinking as you realise
Been here too long to look in her eyes
But it's all you know
Reap what you sow
All you ever seem to do is repeat.

Frost comes through
Her window onto you.
Hairs on end
You stay put.
Staying with her should have been easy.
Eyes hypnotised you completely.
& you want to change
Mend & re-arrange it.
Want to make it better
But you fail to.
Fail you.
