Counting The Cost

from by Sam Carter

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    'This is a bittersweet folk-electric concept album, influenced by his time spent in London, and the songs range from the slow and personal From the South Bank to Soho, which features exquisite viola work from Sam Sweeney, to the remarkable Drop the Bomb, which starts as a gentle ballad backed by the piano of Neil Cowley (of Adele fame) and ends as a furious electric guitar workout.’ **** The Guardian

    '‘…like one of his heroes Richard Thompson, Carter has the ability to enthral with just one climactic chord when he moves effortlessly into rock guitar mode and the jagged contrast with his softer side makes it all the more effective' fRoots

lyrics

Fruit flies hovering in my kitchen
What do they want with me?

Night time crashes in, I’m on my own again
I’m terrible company

And now I know what I’ve lost
And now I’m counting the cost
Helene

Soon I'll come to collect my things from you
Gotta go through with it

Like the spoils of war, hard won, struggled for
But what do you do with it?

And now I know what I’ve lost
And now I’m counting the cost
Helene
