lyrics

There's memories strung up like dew drops
On spider webs in the spring
Evaporated by daytime
But at first light they're shimmering

Like I remember, you were holding your breath
When you put your hands into mine
And carefully lifting your dress up over your hair
You couldn't stop smiling

They're all just little pearls of water
All strung on a line
They're all just little pearls of water

There's memories falling like rain drops
Hammering down on the tin
And I can't speak over the sound of
All those dumb things I did

Too drunk at the concert, a staggering king
Believing in all my own lies
Cause too much attention might make a man think
He can take what he wants without paying the price

They're all just little pearls of water
That keep falling all night
They're all just little pearls of water

Your twenties will tell you
It's be in love or be free
But I swear I never felt freer
Than when you were singing with me

There's memories hiding in teardrops
That blur the ink on the page
Now, when I read the words back to me
All the meaning has changed

Cause we're all given chances
That we know won't happen twice
That night you took me dancing
You were saying goodbye

They're all just little pearls of water
Gone in the blink of an eye
They're all just little pearls of water
They're all just little pearls of water

about

Steve Wallis Paris, France

Steve Wallis writes honest, clear eyed folk songs, driven by his shrewd fingerstyle guitar, and his wry gift for finding joy in the melancholy. His songs are old letters from ex lovers, regrets folded into fond souvenirs, that final glance back before rushing onwards.

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
