‘WALNUT DASH’ OFFICIAL Music Video by I Kept The Wolves Away

Written by I Kept The Wolves Away

Produced at FAT ELEPHANT Studios, Sheffield

Video by Ash Romans


I know I’m selfish

But I can’t help it

They ain’t seen things I’ve seen

Beats all the peaches

In all the features

In any magazine

You are gonna take me away for the day

‘Cause you’re the driver and I’m the DJ

I put on your favourite records and you give me those eyes

Escape from the city just to put your lips onto mine

I don’t deserve it

I’ll try to hurt it

Got labelled long ago

Take what I need

And then I leave

So many others know

I tried to tell you that I was no good

You tried to tell me that I’m just misunderstood

So I crashed and I burned it down in a beat

The truth is I adore you and I miss you looking at me

I want you back on

The walnut dash I

Pushed into you onto

I did retract from

Our attraction

Guess I was some kind of fool

I lied cause it’s always been you

Find out where I’m going to

Tie me into something new

My turn to stop being cruel

Well I can’t catch my breath when you’re gone

Repeating counts down to one

Hold me again and I’ve won

The best prize is still yet to come
