I count every third tree on my way to school I wonder if you ever did the same As I wash my hands in the morning I wonder if you’re doing the same And sometimes I smile when I realise that We’re breathing the same air And we’re drinking the same water All the while, nevermind I just hope that you’re thinking of your daughter And sometimes I call myself a fool And I wonder if you ever did the same Because I think too much without forewarning And I’m wondering if you’re doing the same And sometimes I smile when I realise that We’re breathing the same air And we’re drinking the same water All the while, nevermind I just hope that you’re thinking of your daughter And most the time I do fine, as a rule I wonder if you ever did the same And I’m giving you a whole load of love now spring is dawning And I’m wondering if you’re doing the same

Talk 02:20
In the belly of the bird, we grew Forever human, alive - forever apart And I want to talk Until the count comes in Or at least until the reaper grins I’m always cradled in between myself And you and I And still I fear to come near And it’s as strong as a wave And I want to talk Until the count comes in Or at least until the reaper grins

Please, don’t look at me when I’m feeling like this Because I’m humiliated, as it is Even after all the new eyes and bright smiles These songs are still about you babe Please, don’t look at me when I’m feeling like this Because I’m humiliated I’m laid here in Park Terrace And I’m so much in love Elvis still rings in my ears And the noise of naivety hums But how were we to know Suspicious Minds would end our time together? Please, don’t look at me when I’m feeling like this Because I’m humiliated, as it is Even after all the new eyes and bright smiles These songs are still about you babe Please, don’t look at me Because I’m humiliated I’m laid here in Park Terrace And I’m so much in love And I know your love didn’t work out The way you wanted it to And I’m sorry babe, cos’ I know just how that feels Like a bubble bursting on your broken back Please, don’t look at me Because I’m humiliated And I’m laid here in Park Terrace And I’m so much in love

about

Live songs taken from 'The Same Water' - a short film capturing progressive folk artist Katie Spencer through live performance and interview, filmed and directed by Patrick Mateer.

"The heartbeat of the film is Katie’s storytelling through her lyrics and I used these, along with the interview footage we filmed, to weave a narrative amongst the songs that tells us who Katie is and why she makes the music she does. The film also features scenes shot in places that are meaningful to Katie’s music and that have inspired some of the songs in the film."
- Patrick Mateer
