Maddy Howell i bought this for derek's tracks as he is one of my all-time favourite musicians, and unsurprisingly his half of the split is INSANELY good. however i was also super impressed with dan's side, some proper brilliant tracks. overall a completely solid release from 2 amazing musicians. Favorite track: Almost Whole.

Track Name: Derek Grant - Almost Whole

Almost whole, feels empty inside
It gets so lonely at night

Almost home, going back to the farm
Find my way right back into your arms

Broke like a puzzle that fell to the ground
One piece went missing and could not be found
I'm feeling down

Here we go on another long road
It should get easier, it don't

Almost whole without my heart near
It makes me wonder what I'm doing here

Broke like a puzzle that fell to the ground
One piece went missing and could not be found
'til you came around

With no oil the tin man can't walk
He looks fine on the outside but, it hurts just to talk

Come pick me up
I've had enough
Put me together and then

I'll be the man you fell in love with again
Partner, protector and friend

I become whole in the end
Track Name: Derek Grant - Love Because

The way that you kept looking at me, girl
You'd think that I'm on fire
There's no way I could stop thinking 'bout you, girl...

And I would be a liar if I said
I didn't want to spend my life with you
Together every day until the end
I feel like there is nothing that we cannot do

In love because…
Because we're tired of playing
We hope and we're praying that this is the one

And now, It’s five years since I met you, girl
It seems like it was just last night
Somehow it just keep getting better, girl

You helped me figure out my life
And stuck around when I lost control
You're always right there by my side
I couldn't live without you baby, that I know

In love because…
Because our hearts are wide open, we pray and we're hoping that this is the one
Because we're tired of playing
We hope and we’re praying that this is the one
Track Name: Derek Grant - Little Bit of Makeup

Lately, I have been feeling so good
It’s all your fault
Maybe, I’ll tell you exactly how I feel
And take the fall

You put a little bit of makeup on
We dance around and sing a made up song
You look so good that you’re making me smile

Waiting, you never kept me waiting
Please don’t start now
Racing, you're making my heart go crazy
It won't slow down

You put a little bit of makeup on
I kiss your mouth and try to fake a yawn
You taste so good that it’s making me smile

You put a little bit of makeup on
We stay out late, and go to sleep at dawn
It feels so good that it’s making me smile
