A new single from Emily Fairlight, who hints at a new album in 2020, following her dark masterpiece "Mother Of Gloom".

"This song was written in three different houses, in three very different states of mind about the same shit situation. The video represents this internal conflict.” Video: youtu.be/jsXstNYe1jc

Week is done and you've left me
Like the earth does the sun, always turning
And I can't raise you again

He's like a drug in my system
Tried to quit but I missed him
Lips lasso, eyes like wells I fell into

These four walls are my prison
Down I fall as she's risen
Praise she
But let me be
But let me be
Just let me be
