about

This song is written by Kyle Hamlett, a friend from Nashville.
His band Lylas are fantastic and truly criminally under-appreciated. This song fits my mood of late. I need Home...I need Hugs...I need Holiday songs.
After a brilliant year in New Zealand...It's time to come home. Hope you got the hugs waiting!

lyrics

I need Home..I need Hugs...I need Holiday songs.
I need a spoonful of sleep, full of sweet dreams.
I gave away years just to follow you here.
And, in one tiny second you disappear.
I once knew a girl and I have known her well.
She pours change in her mirror..a failed wishing well.
Some nights she breaks into shivers and shakes
and inspects her reflection for all of your mistakes.
You sleepwalk yourself through the terrible times.
and who do you see when you close your eyes.
I wake up, I get drunk, I get happy then sad.
I get lower than lonely..I get higher than that.
I gave away years just to follow you here.
And, in one tiny second you disappear.
I need Home..I need Hugs...I need Holiday songs.
I need a spoonful of sleep, full of sweet dreams.
