about

Fast Learner was originally realised as a single along with 'White Chalk' back in April 2012. This new version has a more driving, drum and bass like pulse and features more multi layered harmonies in the break down section.

lyrics

I have fallen to the floor, made big decisions I really tried before.
You are only what you perceive, raw as passion, unaffected (repeat)

We’ll go faster, all enhancing further, both of you know it when you’re a fast learner (repeat x4)

Wish I’d known enough to call you everyday

Everyday

You have gone so much further than you’d like, than you’d like (repeat x2)
We all like the complicated, creative thinkers.

We’ll go faster, all enhancing further, both of you know it when you’re a fast learner (repeat x4)

Wish I’d known enough to call you everyday yeah!
