about

This track was written when my dear friend and associate Lake was deciding whether or not to travel to Auckland for a year. I was really torn about it and this song I wrote with his help before he left.

After I had already named it, he told me the suburb he's staying in is actually called "New Papatoetoe" which would have been funnier, but... anyway :)!

lyrics

So I cried out into the middle of the night
Until my voice was worn out, choked and tight
Where are you, how are you, what are we doing here?
If I reach out, if I shout, will I somehow call you near?

You have broken my shell it won't last any longer
Do what I need to do to make myself stronger

Go if you need to go
When you come back let me know
Go if you need to go
When you come back let me know

Please dance on the lotus of my heart
I call out your name when I feel far apart
I want to explode into ecstatic love for you
Will I find you, let me bind you, I'm the servant of the servant
(of the servant, of the servant, I'm the servant of the servant) x2

The water is warm I have made it my home
And the more I belong is the deeper I go

So I hope you will see that I've grown
In the time that you leave me alone
I hope you will see that I've grown
In the time that you leave me alone
