ARCADIA LYRICS

Dear friends and fiends,

It's great to hear Arcadia getting such a good reaction from you. This song was a little gift from the cosmos. One day this spring I was walking to the studio instead of taking the subway because it was a really nice day. Somewhere between Union Square and the Flatiron building the melody of the chorus started to evolve in my head. It kept going round in a loop, so I rushed to the studio to record a quick guide melody before I had the chance to forget it. It's one of the freshest songs we have, we started recording it in the last session we did with Rick. I think it was in May. Then I started writing the lyrics on the plane back to NYC from the Kendal Calling festival. The recording was only finished a few months ago in August. We've played it every night of this tour and I'm looking forward to seeing people singing along now that it's been released.

Here are the lyrics for your pleasure...

Tim

Arcadia

 

Light up, spark the detonator

Now I'm homeward bound, way to see you later

If you make that step you're the instigator

Got my mind made up, I'll be your navigator

If you want me to travel over moonlit miles

For a precious smile

Following my lonely heart

Call on me, take me...

 

Far over the seas

I return in my dreams

Sailing home under the stars

To be safe in your arms

Ever near, travel through time

Ever close in my mind

Say you will truly be mine

Say you'll always be mine

 

We are a winning combination

We're two stars aligned in a constellation

When I get too low you're my inspiration

Never let me down, you're a revelation

One that comes along once in a lifetime

Oh I realise

You give me love free and wild

Oh my child, lead me...

 

Far over the seas

I return in my dreams

Sailing home under the stars

To be safe in your arms

Ever near, travel through time

Ever close in my mind

Say you will truly be mine
