about

Laura is the next single off Bradshaw's upcoming album, Twine. The album will be released 2/26/20, and the party will be at Littlefield in NYC. We hope to see you there.

We're separated by a nation, and I wonder what I would even do with myself if she were always near. The lyrics tie into the music - the "swelling sound" of our love is accompanied by the swell of guitars, and the "beating drum" of my heart brings in an echoing kick as a heartbeat.
Much of the fearful beauty of the song is its acknowledgement of transience. The kind of beauty that evaporates if we hold on to it, like a butterfly crushed between our hands. And yet we are drawn irresistibly to each other, despite what stands between us.

lyrics

Oh Laura stay with me a while
Look at me and smile
I don’t know what
I would do with you around

Helpless for the fire inside
Embers spring to life
I won’t fight back
Not against this swelling sound

Of music ringing in my ears
Bringing me to tears
A beating drum
Is my heart when you’re around

Oh Laura stay with me a while
Look at me and smile
I don’t know what
I would do with you around
