Sometimes our fan base throws up incredible surprises and creativity. A while back we stumbled upon the UK group Planet Puppets, who were using our music in their live puppet shows. In the flurry of mutual admiration that followed, they made a video clip for ‘Child’ (from Adelphi). We hope you will enjoy it!


Your quiet breath
The world can take a rest
In my arms
The world can do no harm
I’ll keep you safe
Whenever you may sleep
And I’ll make promises
That I’ll never keep

My perfect child
The gift of all tomorrows
I’d spare you all the darkest days
And hide you from all sorrows

Your quiet breath
I’ll always do my best for you
And I’ll forget
All the rest I’ll lose for you
