Oh, darling – what’s up? You could place a thistle on the ground in the place of me Oh, darling – what’s up? You could pour my dust, just tip me up and shake me free Don’t mists just disappear? You know all of this just disappears Ooh, darling – what’s up? You could wear that black rose fascinator for a day only Ohh, darling – don’t you wait for me Don’t you wait, don't you wait I’m gone, turn off your phone, no two blue ticks from me I’m all lit up I’m all spit up I’m all shit out already I’m all bit up I’m all chewed up It’s time for me already Oh, darling – what’s up? You just wait for dust to not be dust, if you wait for me Oh, darling – what’s up? You should feel a kiss full up with love, don’t wait for me Don’t mists just disappear? You know all of this’ll just disappear I’m all lit up I’m all spit up I’m all shit out already I’m all bit up I’m all chewed up It’s time for me already I’m all lit up I’m all spit up I’m all shit out already I’m all bit up I’m all chewed up It’s time for me already

When you find out you're an average snowflake – oh, it's a limp balloon to re-inflate Only presiding over your own landscape and a truth that you make I know the writing's at the requisite grade, it's just the intangibles at play And then another bombshell – it's you they hate No coming back from hay made What we doing and where are we going? The commonplaceness to which I gravitate, realized in full and then survived by still more normal snowflakes Why procreate at all? People speak in “plans” and “journeys” and “fates” As hero types, we're drawn I ordered steak, but then it came on a slate Into this life, we're thrown What we doing and where are we going?

about

After returning from an extended hiatus in amazing form with 2021's 'No Two Blue Ticks' album, London R&B multi-talent Royce Wood Junior still had a few more things left to say (or, more truthfully, a few more things that we begged him to let everyone else hear).

Far too good to be left on the cutting room floor, these 'Loose Bits' now get to further round out the full story of that album's prolific recording sessions.

We had to fight for these songs to be released – so, please enjoy.
