From the album Gretna
Gretna is the new single taken from The Frisbys' latest EP 'Lead me to the Water', due for release in summer 2017.
The song tells a story about a young couple who (after being sold on the dreams ideals of marriage) elope to Gretna Greene, only to find out everything was not quite as they were promised.
I can't be the only girl to hold a light within your world.
I can't find some peace within without somebody creeping in.
And it's not what I want and it's not what I do but I would be alone if it wasn't for you.
Sweetheart, you say we're leaving sometime
We'll give up being free
You're just a guest inside my head now
You want it all from me
I can't pretend, I can't deny, you're in my heart tonight
But I am sold when everything I've got for life's on
dreams and lies.
We'll go walk from time to time
I'll start packing things that are mine
I don want to be aone
I'm so scared though nearly grown
Bridge: And it's not what I want and it's not what I do but I would be alone if it wasn't for you.
And it's not what we what and it's not what we do but I would be alone if I don't choose to go with you.
