about

This song was a long time in the writing. In 2008 I split up with my partner of three years. We were living together and as we dismantled the home we’d built I was struck by the image of two lives having become one for a while and right there in the division of books and CDs, becoming two again. Like everything that moves me, I knew there was a song in it. I had to wait until 2018 when my Mum’s 15 year relationship came to an end to find the right way to express it: she called me and told me she felt like she was “untangling” her life from her ex-partner’s life. At that moment, I knew I could finally write the song.

lyrics

We’ve been building castles
Everlasting, or so we planned
All our empires will come falling
We’ve been building in the sand

Find a doubt, you hold it in
I let it out and we begin

Unravelling where we were entwining
And I am untangling your life from mine
Unwinding and we are realigning
And I am untangling your life from mine

We’ve been finding changes
In the faces we used to know
All the spaces we’ve been hiding
Send us sliding as they grow

Find a doubt, you rush on in
I slow it down and we begin

Unravelling where we were entwining
And I am untangling your life from mine
Unwinding and we are realigning
And I am untangling your life from mine

We’re unravelling
I’m still standing

We’ve been building castles
We’ve been building in the sand

Unravelling where we were entwining
And I am untangling your life from mine
Unwinding and we are realigning
And I am untangling your life from mine
