lyrics

Holding on to what you want to keep,
So close that you can't breathe.
I apologize for what I say,
I'm trying to hide and run away oh.
Something's got you by the throat,
You can't be sure that you don't want it,
To cut the air from where you need it.
It's so much easier I know.

Holding on to who you think you need,
To keep your arms up in your sleeves,
And your head tight upon your neck,
And your heart beat-beating in your chest.
Something's got you by the throat,
You can't be sure that you don't want it,
To cut the air from where you need it.
It's so much easier I know.

Because sometimes beating ain't neat,
I'm needing something more.
Surely this aint it.
I'm getting tired of all that,
Breaking my back just to follow in the tracks.
Oh this aint living,
I'm dying to get it over with.

Holding on to who you think you need,
To keep those arms up in those sleeves,
And your head ti-ti-tight upon your neck,
And your heart beat-beating in your chest.
Something's got you by the throat,
You can't be sure that you don't want it,
To cut the air from where you need it.
It's so much easier I know.

Because sometimes beating ain't neat,
I'm needing something more.
Surely this aint it.
I'm getting tired of all that,
Breaking my back just to follow in the tracks.
Oh this aint living,
I'm dying to get it over with.

Because sometimes beating ain't neat,
I'm needing something more.
Surely this aint it.
I'm getting tired of all that,
Breaking my back just to follow in the tracks.
Oh this aint living,
I'm dying to get it over with.

about

The Bean Project Belgrave, Australia

From the eastern suburbs of Melbourne come The Bean Project, a vibrant French horn-clad acoustic quintet blending the raw untreated sounds of folk, jazz and singer-songwriter styles with fresh and unique songwriting - most aptly described as 'the odd marriage of James Taylor and The Cat Empire'. ... more
