'For her' was originally written for a computer games soundtrack called Breeze in April 2012. It features melodica from NATSM drummer Simon Hadwin. Video link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ADdvxHuGHY


On the wings of screaming trees, took her hand and wrote to me
I only saw what I wanted to see

Round the corner, driven to distraction, wind blowing up my coat
If I make a single mistake
She’ll hear the ruined words I wrote

I turned to take the woman’s hand she soothed and held a weary man.
Part affection, all belief
Singing as a goddess only can!

Now I know which way I want to see the life in her grow
She could not wish me elsewhere
I’d never willingly go
