about

‘When writing sessions began for what was to become the debut LP 'Last Fire Burning', there was no plan or structure. it was simply an opportunity to reclaim and fall in love with music all over again. After a while it became apparent that overcoming adversity in our personal lives (both mental and physical), would come to define this process. Eventually there was a strong batch of songs that would make up an album. This exploration reveals itself here through themes of love, loss and cathartic reinvention.’ - AZUMINI

Track Name: Get Loose
Get loose, got no time to lose
I’ve got, hard cash and nothing to prove
I’ll be the warrior if you’ll be my queen
I am the dark night that no-one sees

Get loose all you crazy fools
Come on, shake it up
Come on, shake it up
Get loose all you crazy fools
Come on, shake it up
Come on, shake it up

Hey you, are you crazy too
I’ve got big lips to make out with you
Walk down the corridoor that’s in your dreams
I am the conscience that you’ve never been

Get loose all you crazy fools
Come on, shake it up
Come on, shake it up
Get loose all you crazy fools
Come on, shake it up
Come on, shake it up

Get loose, got no time to lose
I’ve got, hard cash and nothing to prove
I’ll be the warrior if you’ll be my queen
I am the dark night that no-one sees

Get loose all you crazy fools
Come on, shake it up
Come on, shake it up
Get loose all you crazy fools
Come on, shake it up
Come on, shake it up
Track Name: Don't Run Away
There’s never been a perfect moment
To tell you all the words I’m trying to say
And if I captured your lips
In the sweetest kiss
Would you be shaking or running away
And if you feel you broke the brackets
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
And if you know you cannot stand it
Don’t run away
Don’t run away

Cos there’s times when I’ve been feeling
My heart would not stop beating
I’m dancing all over the place
And there’s times when I’ve been feeling
My hands touched the ceiling
I’m dancing all over the place
I need you…
Oh my baby don’t run away…
I need you…
Oh my baby don’t run away…

There’s never been a better moment
To tell you all the words I’m trying to say
And if I captured your lips
In the sweetest kiss
Would you be shaking or running away
And if you feel you broke the brackets
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
And if you know you cannot stand it
Don’t run away
Don’t run away

Cos there’s times when I’ve been feeling
My heart would not stop beating
I’m dancing all over the place
And there’s times when I’ve been feeling
The same thing you’re feeling
My heart was all over the place
I need you…
Oh my baby don’t run away…
I need you…
Oh my baby don’t run away…

Cos there’s times when I’ve been feeling
My heart would not stop beating
I’m dancing all over the place
And there’s times when I’ve been feeling
My hands touched the ceiling
I’m dancing all over the place
I need you…
Oh my baby don’t run away…
I need you…
Oh my baby don’t run away…

(Don’t you run, run, runaway)
Track Name: Hold You Close
I saw your eyes
I saw your soul and the wanting
When I’m with you
You tap my heart now it’s beating, beating

You know you can’t always keep your feelings locked away.
The safest thing you can do is turn your eyes the other way.

But when I hold you close
I feel the sparks a flying in everything you do
I turn my eyes to the lights again
Now that my life’s been saved
And if I hold you close
I feel the sparks a flying in everything you do
You do

There’s nothing like
When we divide and the sun dims
If the dream is true
Then the hunger comes now we’re feeding, feeding

You know you can’t always keep your feelings locked away.
The safest thing you can do is turn your eyes the other way.

But when I hold you close
I feel the sparks a flying in everything you do
I turn my eyes to the lights again
Now that my life’s been saved
And if I hold you close
I feel the sparks a flying in everything you do
You do

If this is love
If this is love
Yes I want love

(You feel it
You’re fighting
The hunger
The wanting)
Track Name: All for You (Seni Seviyorum)
So silent these nights
As I passed through your dreams
Oh I’ve been not quite myself
But you set me free

It's all for you my love
How I long to be by your side
It's all for you…
I’d share my world with you...
(Seni Seviyorum, Seni Seviyorum)

I’ll be there by daybreak
To see the warmth on your face
Oh love, the coldest of mornings
Couldn’t keep me away

It's all for you my love
How I long to be by your side
It's all for you…
I’d share my world with you...
(Seni Seviyorum, Seni Seviyorum)

It's all for you…
I’d share my world with you...
(Seni Seviyorum, Seni Seviyorum)

It's all for you…
I’d share my world with you...
(Seni Seviyorum, Seni Seviyorum)

It's all for you…
I’d share my world with you...
(Seni Seviyorum, Seni Seviyorum)
Track Name: Wave Rider
The line breaks
As tides keep you from your holding
Your hands slip
I’ll notice when you’re gone
There’s nothing to proove…
It’s all up to you...

What doesn’t break you couldn’t change you
Stop running away…
The hardest it’ll ever take you
Is like riding a wave…
Only you can ride the wave…
Only you can ride the wave...

And so it takes
Our strength to keep you from falling
Cos if you trip
I’ll notice when you’re gone
There’s nothing to proove…
It’s all up to you…

What doesn’t break you couldn’t change you
Stop running away…
The hardest it’ll ever take you
Is like riding a wave…
Only you can ride the wave…
Only you can ride the wave...
Only you can ride the wave…
Only you can ride the wave...

(It’s up to you
It’s just a matter of taste
We saw the stars shine bright
Now in outer space)
Track Name: Submarine
Words are never quite enough
But they’re always what they seem
You wont find me in your dreams
I’ve been hiding from myself

Let’s all go out to nowhere
Let’s all rush out to nowhere fast.

Time will see these hands uncuffed
I’m so tired of what I’ve seen
And while all the waves may crash
I’ll build a submarine

Let’s all go out to nowhere
Let’s all rush out to nowhere fast.

It’s only nowhere and times a’ running fast
(Daylight is breaking over lives that are changing
And times a running fast)

It’s only nowhere and times a’ running fast
(Daylight is breaking over lives that are changing
And times a running fast)
Track Name: Inside the Wires
There’s something wrong here
The state devours
They’ve got us talking
Inside the wires

While we were sleeping
And so divided
They built a new scheme
Inside the wires

Bye, Bye you can’t buy our freedom
We’re free without it
You’ve tried but you can’t concede it
We’re free without it
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires

You know they keep us
From climbing higher
We’re always fighting
Inside the wires

Your baby wild eyes
Remember something
I know they’ve got you
But these times are changing

Bye, Bye you can’t buy our freedom
We’re free without it
You’ve tried but you can’t concede it
We’re free without it
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires

And when the wires come down
We’ve been lost now we’re found
I was lost too and hurt
Can you feel it
Let’s find a way
Let’s find a way

Bye, Bye you can’t buy our freedom
We’re free without it
You’ve tried but you can’t concede it
We’re free without it
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires

Bye, Bye you can’t buy our freedom
We’re free without it
You’ve tried but you can’t concede it
We’re free without it
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires
Inside, inside the wires
Inside the wires
Track Name: You Carry On
Yes, it’s been hard
But you found a way…
You’ve journeyed far
It must have been so tough
To know this
To throw it all away

But now it’s the daylight
You’ve made it to great heights
And you carry on..
(You carry on…)
You carry on...
(You carry on…)

Well you gave it your heart
You gave up on wishing…
Your days away
It must have been so strange
Imploding
And falling without a way

But now it’s the daylight
You’ve made it to great heights
And you carry on..
(You carry on…)
You carry on...
(You carry on…)

But now it’s the daylight
You’ve made it to great heights
And you carry on..
(You carry on…)
You carry on...
(You carry on…)
And you carry on..
(You carry on…)
You carry on...
(You carry on…)

(Gave up the madness
Got nothing but love left)
Track Name: Get up Now (My Eyes Are on You)
I saw a fire in the desert skies
Where the winds swept mountains and the valley sides
I heard your fears felt like water to sand
It was better to be what they could understand

What’s the point of feelings you tell me
Get up now my eyes are on you
A thousand worlds to me mean something
But only now I share them with you
So get up
Please get up
Get up now my eyes are on you
So get up
Please get up
Get up now my eyes are on you

Now that the lights shine bright tonight
I’ll whisper words in your ear while you’re sleeping tight
For if my dear you see there’s more than a man
It’s the you in me; I hope you understand

What’s the point feelings you tell me
Get up now my eyes are on you
A thousand worlds to me mean something
But only now I share them with you
So get up
Please get up
Get up now my eyes are on you
So get up
Please get up
Get up now my eyes are on you
So get up
Please get up
Get up now my eyes are on you
So get up
Please get up
Get up now my eyes are on you
Track Name: Last Fire Burning
It’s your time
And now feel your heart
Be still your mind
Your journey can go far

Don’t stop just turn to the night
Until the last fire burning
Is your name in lights
Until the last…
Last fire burning
Until the last…
Last fire burning

Your legs break
You feel your way can start
And as you shake
Is this the greatest hour

Don’t stop just turn to the night
Until the last fire burning
Is your name in lights
Until the last…
Last fire burning
Until the last…
Last fire burning
Until the last…
Last fire burning
Until the last…
Last fire burning
(Is your name in lights, is your name in lights)

Don’t stop just turn to the night
Until the last fire burning
Is your name in lights
Until the last…
Last fire burning
Until the last…
Last fire burning
(Is your name in lights, is your name in lights)
Until the last…
Last fire burning
Until the last…
Last fire burning
(Is your name in lights, is your name in lights)
Track Name: Blue
Don’t wanna wait for you to recover
I lost the stars and who knows where you are
A storm gathers a spark

Oh here comes the sunrise
Lend me your open hands

Oh what if I swear to you
I was the flame that you sucked in
Whole, you gave me nothing
Now I can’t breathe I’m blue

The heavens shake as I’m going under
I felt the fire in the arms of one I love
a storm gathers a spark

Oh here comes the sunrise
Lend me your open hands

Oh what if I swear to you
I was the flame that you sucked in
Whole, you gave me nothing
Now I can’t breathe I’m blue

(I’ll follow, I’ll find you
Gonna reach you through the darkness)

Oh what if I swear to you
I was the flame that you sucked in
Whole, you gave me nothing
Now I can’t breathe I’m blue

(I’ll follow, I’ll find you
gonna reach you through the darkness)
Track Name: Rain Falls Down
You’re still standing nowhere
Electric hearts and filtered glare
You’re still standing nowhere
When the rain falls

You said that I won’t make it
As the lightening starts your breakdown care
You’re stuck standing nowhere
When the rain falls

That’s how I know
That’s how I care
Sometimes I feel like I am lost anywhere...
When the rain falls

You play the crowd so debbonair
An instant drowned by social flare
You’re still standing nowhere
When the rain falls

You try so hard to fake it
With your lipstick heart and insta-share
But honey I can take it
When the rain falls

That’s how I know
That’s how I care
Sometimes I feel like I am lost anywhere...
When the rain falls

That’s how I know
That’s how I care
Sometimes I feel like I am lost anywhere...
When the rain falls down
When the rain falls down

I am the lightwave...
I am the lightwave...

I am the lightwave...
I am the lightwave...
