Delicate (live)

by Emma Nabarro-Steel



Live and unplugged, this forgotten recording of 'Delicate' is more intimate and moody than the studio version first released on "Leaving a Space' in 2016.


Here have this shining but broken thing
Here have this bell but you can't choose when it rings
I handled things badly but I would not have
Handled you like that

Here have this wine, it has no legs and there is no plan
Here have this life, it has zero expected span
I meant to be delicate and I would have been
So delicate with you

So send me home
Let me go
I'll write a better plan

Have this idea, it's gonna make you lose your mind
And never be as wonderful as a thing you left behind
I made myself far too clear and I guess I no longer appear
Delicate to you
