I'm dreaming of a face I don't know what it's like I'm dreaming of a smile Something I can see inside 'Cos if you asked me to I'd live life without you but I I don't want to be alone, anymore 'Cos I can see a time when we could be together so Please don't give up on me this time Please don't give up on me this time I don't know if it's real Nothing real could be this sweet I'm trying to stay in control Before you turn off the heat 'Cos if you asked me to I'd live life without you but I I don't want to be alone, anymore 'Cos I can see a time when we could be together so Please don't give up on me this time 'Cos if you asked me to I'd live life without you but I I don't want to be alone, anymore 'Cos I can see a time when we could be together so Please don't give up on me this time

Please don't touch me I'm damaged goods you see You'll only get hurt in the end Please don't touch me I'm damaged goods you see Work for a while to pretend So don't run away when surely you can fly Show me how Don't tell me lies it's only in your mind Just to keep it inside So please don't try To look me in the eye You won't find me today No please don't try It's harder when you're blind To look the other way So don't run away when surely you can fly Show me how Don't tell me lies it's only in your mind Just to keep it inside Please don't touch me I'm damaged goods you see You'll only get hurt in the end Please don't touch me I'm damaged goods you see Work for a while to pretend So don't run away when surely you can fly Show me how Don't tell me lies it's only in your mind Just to keep it inside

I'm looking up and down All around for you I swear I never found So rare a dream as you You took the easy way out You took the easy way out You took the easy way out Easy way out, easy way... I know we used to joke About other folk but who Could ever blame us, I Was so in love with you You took the easy way out You took the easy way out You took the easy way out And if my heart was whole Then it would bleed for you And if I saw you low Then I would breathe for you I'm looking up and down I'm looking all around

Won't you tell me why It's so cold when the sun is hiding in the sky Won't you tell me why You lie among the other ones when you can fly It's not hard to change roles And I think if you took some time To change your mind Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Won't you tell me where you go When the sun comes down it's not the hills or undergrowth All you got to do is take me one day I could understand why you hurt me this way I'm trying to keep my knees from getting weak But it'll be hard 'Til you come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Still you lead me on Still I'll follow you around the moon 'til the time is done Still you lead me down There's no use in pushing me much further to the ground Every man has changed to air And it's only unfair If you're not there So please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home Please come home

I can see you shaking What's that you're taking is it despair? Maybe you stopped moving I can see the colour of your hair So tell me are you So tell me are you in love? What's that you're drinking Don't tell me you don't know Don't care what they're saying I think it's really time to go So tell me are you So tell me are you in love? So tell me are you So tell me are you in love?

Told you to tell them How much daddy cared Because every time I saw them They just looked scared How long's this been going? How long's this stuff been in your head? You promised the social services I think they belong with me instead And I just play back every word you said They're in my head You lie to me; you lie them Those fragile minds, they're my own Flesh and blood, skin and bone And you left them On their own All those lonely nights That I spend alone Comforted by the thought Baby's warm at home But you were out in other places Drinking in the morning light Well who was there When my daughter was crying in the night? And I just play back every word you said They're in my head You lie to me; you lie them Those fragile minds, they're my own Flesh and blood, skin and bone And you left them On their own What else can I say What else can I do When my homesick children Keep me asking me about you Hush now sweetie for the minute Mama's gone and don't you cry Just wait a little while and maybe One day I'll tell you why And I just play back every word you said They're in my head You lie to me; you lie them Those fragile minds, they're my own Flesh and blood, skin and bone And you left them On their own

about

'Songs From a House in May' is Josh's musical debut. As the title suggests, it was recorded in a makeshift studio within a friend's living room.

From the onset there is an acoustic folk sound in the mix, though with a strumming style that Josh has since left behind.

Two bonus tracks are available with the free download. 'Once You Walked' is an early demo and the very first sound committed to tape, whilst 'Cocaine' is a blues standard. Altered versions of both songs are available in later releases.
