Halie Aroz Absolutely beautiful album, I've been so excited for this release! My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Hadley in NY after The Machine, he is an amazing talent and such a lovely person. I hope we get the chance to see another performance of his sometime soon :) xo Favorite track: On Constellation Street.

Line Paquette Je suis une grande fan d'Hadley Fraser - comme comédien ou chanteur il est mon préféré entre tous. Cet album tant attendu me comble, tant au niveau de la qualité de la musique que des orchestrations - et quelles voix ! Mais je reste sur ma faim - c'est trop court ! Encore d'autres S.V.P! Favorite track: Herne & The Red Kite.

Mehrac ALIYARI Hadley, je vous adore ! I loved your music with Sheytoons and I love this EP. I hope a full album will follow because, while this EP truly is great, having only five songs to listen to is a bit frustrating. Just saying. I am also looking forward to attend one of your concerts. Favorite track: Herne & The Red Kite.

Just Let Go 04:30
Never a question of missed opportunities I know that I should be letting you do this to me Just let go Can’t choose the time and you can’t choose the distances Rounding the bend of familiar instances Just let go So I sit upon the wall And I hear you when you call Never been so hard She is on her guard Let go Try to explain to yourself why you feel like this You know the bow and the arrow can always miss Just let go This time there’s no way of hiding the way you feel Ring out the bells, let them ring out and then appeal Just let go So I sit upon the wall And I hear you when you call Never been so hard She is on her guard Let go Try so hard to just let go Try so hard to just let go Never a question of missed opportunities I know that you know that I should be doing this Just let go

Heading West 04:09
Nothing we had gets taken away Might learn the value of it some day Everything left gets in the way Obstructs and disrupts and then leads us astray It’s simple, or should be, now Happy the unspoken vow Wind blow me, I know we’ve done our best Follow the road, follow, dispossessed Leave all we had, time for something new Each town we meet, keep on passing through And each time you reach home, or feel distressed Think of me heading west Why not leave now, deep in July? August flies quickly, watch it glide by Pick up your bag, don’t close the door I’m right behind you, if not before It’s over, or should be, now, We’ve gone through why, gone through how You know me, I know we’ve done our best Follow the road feeling truly blessed Turn off the path, dim the lights, explore Cast off, set sail, then get washed ashore With each step get closer, then finally rest Think of me heading west

Herne lived alone, lived alone in a wood Staring at swallows, wishing he could Join their migration from flower to flower Finally deciding to rest on some bower With another With another Herne lifts his head and the Red Kite goes drifting by Suddenly in love with something that caught her eye Something that’s shining so bright in the sunlight Let’s hope we never lose that thing that shines in the sunlight ever again Only one Herne and not enough wood Climbed up the bower and atop it he stood Called down the Red Kite from high up above Come land down here and be my love Forever Forever Red Kite flies down (he’s waited his life for this) Whispers to Herne something, whispers, and then a kiss Something that’s shining so bright in the sunlight Let’s hope we never lose that thing that shines in the sunlight ever again Herne and the Red Kite (repeat)…

But For Me 04:21
There are times when "how long" Is like howl and so long To the times you knew before Never mind the wherefores and the whys don't care for little hairs that we split anymore You and I don't know the reason why we fell apart Never really find the reason why Could it be that really there was distance in between? Miles from heart to heart No man's a island but for me Your voice a shore across the sea I hear it now so distantly And will eternally Know your worth and hold her To your breast and shoulder All the weight you knew before In time it'll bid you a fond kiss And you'll find that what you miss Is now easy to ignore You and I don't know the reason why we fell apart Never really find the reason why Could it be our lives are islands, separate and vast? Miles from heart to heart No man's a island but for me Your voice a shore across the sea I hear it now so distantly And will eternally There's nowhere left for me to hide An island with a heart inside Breaking Repeat the words "my love we tried" Above the tears already cried Aching No man's a island but for me Your voice a shore across the sea I hear it now so distantly And will eternally will eternally will eternally

Time heads off, and leaves us two alone Makes his way along the path, beyond the old headstones Looks back at us and smiles a bit, he knows his work is done By taking all he has with him, and leaving us with none Meet me here on Constellation Street Birds fly past and watch us as they weep Love on the wing is selfless and deep As we stay down here on Constellation Street Don’t need him, we’ll make it for ourselves With love we’ll stop the ticking clocks, the seconds grow and swell If you and I can truly be together now as one I’ll do his job for nothing till I’m older than the sun Meet me here on Constellation Street Stars come out and sing with each heartbeat Time cannot stop me feeling complete We stay down here on Constellation Street Snow falls down and robs us again Of precious moments like now Time returns and melts the ice And points us to The Plough Meet me here on Constellation Street You’ve come far on tired, worn-out feet Rest them now, don’t be discreet As we stay down here on Constellation Street
