maybe someone can help with lyrics:

if i counted the mistakes
the things i can't erase
the past that lasts like honey in a grave

and if i stitched up into art
all the things i've torn apart
the consequence of love that misbehaved

would all of this make sense
cause you're still here
i'm rougher on my friends
that's how it is

tell me what can i do for you
to make it easier to deal with me
i only wanted to be true
and the truth is often tough

if i counted all the times
i've upped and changed my mind
and left you with a rod without a line

and if i pulled away too soon
pulled the wings from your cocoon
left you feeling small and undesired

don't know if this makes sense
you're still here
i'm offerring my defence ?

but tell me what can i do for you
to make it easier to deal with me
i only wanted to be true
and the truth is often tough

tell me what can i do for you
to make it easier to deal with me
i only wanted to be true
and the truth is not enough

if the truth is not enough
then I can maker it easier on you
t can make it easier on you if you want

so tell me what can i do for you
if the truth is not enough

There's a bit of discussion about the lyrics on the London thread, I suppose it should really be here though

forgot about this new song for a while, rediscovered it now that it's a lot quieter here.
I love it, especially the opening lines. Beautiful!

Because I suck at writing my own tunes, so what I can do for the whole afternoon is listening to the clips on youtube over and over and try to figure out how to play Damien's songs

Capo 5

C-----F--------------G
if i counted the mistakes
------C-------------Am
the things i can't erase
------F-------------------G----------------
the past that lasts like honey in a grave

-----C-----F--------------G
and if i stitched up into art
---------C----------------Am
all the things i've torn apart
------F----------------G--------------------
the consequence of love that misbehaved

--F-----------------------G----------------------------
would all of this make sense, cause you're still here
------F----------------G---------------------
i'm rougher on my friends, that's how it is

Chorus:
---------C----------------Csus2/B------Am7-----G
tell me what__can__ i__do___for___you

-------------F---------G-------------
to make it easier to deal with me

-----------C-----------Csus2/B-------Am7--
i only___wanted_____to____be___true

----------G--------------F-------------G
and the truth is often tough


if i counted all the times
i've upped and changed my mind
and left you with a rod without a line

and if i pulled away too soon
pulled the wings from your cocoon
left you feeling small and undesired

don't know if this makes sense
you're still here
i'm offerring my defence ?

Chorus:
but tell me what can i do for you
to make it easier to deal with me
i only wanted to be true
and the truth is often tough

tell me what can i do for you
to make it easier to deal with me
i only wanted to be true
and the truth is not enough

Bridge:
---------------------Ạm-------------
if the truth is not enough
-----------------------F---------G--------
then I can maker it easier on you
----------------F----------G----------------
t can make it easier on you if you want

Chorus:
so tell me what can i do for you
if the truth is not enough


How to play the chorus:

___C_________Csus2/B____Am7______G_____________F_____________G

|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------1-------------1-------------1-------------0-----|
|---------0-------------0-------------0-------------0--------|
|------2-------------0-------------2-------------0-----------|
|---3-------------2-------------0----------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------3--------------|

Of course
He said he'd be in the studio right now, then touring in spring & summer.
So the new album should be in the shops by September

Maybe there's just not that much news right now. I guess this site will be very busy again in April
