about

Holding Pattern
The ‘newest’ song on the record, Gina brought this song to the band only weeks before we began recording. It clicked straight away, and the arrangement came together easily. It’s an emotionally powerful song talking about how you can burn out and lose your way in life but with an underlying optimism and strength. Gina’s daughter Edie sang backing vocals and hearing them sing a song she’d written together gives the song an amazing texture.

lyrics

Holding Pattern G Hearnden

I’m going to find my way back home
I’m going to find my way back home tonight

I’ve been sinking in mud and falling so fast
Drowning in waves too big for me to ride
Running too slow and trying too hard
Feeling too much to find a clear way out

But I can
I can ride it out

I’m going to find my way back home
I’m going to find my way back home to you tonight

Digging too deep, flying too high
Holding my breath can’t let this chance go by

But I can
I can ride it out

See the swell, it’s growing fast I’ve got to make it
Paddling well, kicking hard I’m going to catch it
On my feet, I disappear and pray that I can make it out

I’m going to find my way back home
I’m going to find my way back home to you tonight

And I can, I can ride it out
