"Fairyland" is one of my first songs for cello, though I figured out the chords on guitar before completing the cello arrangement.

The lyrics draw some inspiration from a book by Jeanette Winterson called "The Passion".

This is also the first time John and Jazz played on stage together. We didn't rehearse at all except briefly during soundcheck.

Lyrics:

Don’t tell me you love me if you can’t show me
Don’t try to appease me
I know you know how to please me

Life is not a fairyland
You’ve got too many questions
If you keep on like this you’ll never get an answer

Time to let go came and went but still i held on tight
Until the clearest message sent arrived in my blackest night

I didn’t know but I should have seen
I didn’t see but I should have known
My precious bruised and torn
My fabulous weathered and worn

Life is not a fairyland
Don’t tell me you love me if you can’t show me

Trevor Exter: voice, cello, songwriter
Jairus "Jazz" Odums: bass
John Morgan Kimock: drums
