Lydia Cole – Telepathise – (Official Music Video)

2016 has been a crazy year for people all over the world, and generally accepted as a time we would rather blot from the calendar. Telepathise is all about choosing to believe in beauty, in mystery, in connection - despite uncertainty, chaos, and discord.

This beautiful video was made by Timothy Armstrong, whose visual and musical works I have admired for many years. It is an honour to finally collaborate with this good and talented human.

Telepathise is now available on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes, Soundcloud.

Telepathise (lyrics)

We don’t own no land
The wind don’t blow to no one plan
Hurt the earth, bite the hand
Dust to dust, rain to dam

All the days that we have fly by and
All the birds of a feather fight and
All the people held dear keep dyin’

But all the lovers telepathise and
All the strings that we tie stay tight and
All the dreams that we have survive it

Understand the voice
Hear the quiet over the noise
Dust to dust, choice by choice

All the days that we have fly by and
All the birds of a feather fight and
All the people held dear keep dyin’

But all the lovers telepathise and
All the things that we tie stay tight and
All the dreams that we have survive it
Will all the dreams that we have survive it?

And from the top of this hill I see it
Everything coming to me in season
It’s as sure as the breeze I’m breathin’

And all the lovers telepathise and
All the strings that we tie stay tied and
All the dreams that we have survive it
Will all the dreams that we have survive it?
