Recorded at intervals through March, April and May 2010 in Upstream Studios, Coleraine near the Northern Irish Coast.

Special thanks to Mark Rainey who recorded, engineered, mixed, produced and mastered this EP, and to Conall Dunlop, who has been my musical accomplice and friend for over five years.

All songs written by Matthew Bonner.

Except 'Sometimes the Worst Part', where the music was written by Conall Dunlop.

Thanks to Claudia Hantschel for the cover photograph.

This recording would not have happened were it not for the constant encouragement, support and inspiration from my family, friends, bandmates and housemates both past and present. You all know who you are.

I have too many people to thank for their support/ encouragement with this project and life in general. If I were to name just a few in no particular order, the list would include Sara Laughlin, Nicola McLaughlin, Kathryn Moody, Valerie Taft, Eimear McKeever, Paul Mattern and especially Tiffany Cartledge. This is by no means an exhaustive list. There are many names not mentioned above who also played a vital role.

Finally, thank you to everyone who has listened, come to a gig or provided me with words of encouragement over the past few years. Your actions have led me to finally record my music and for that I am forever grateful. I only hope that you like what you hear and that the songs might find a place, nomatter how small, somewhere in your life.

Track Name: Miracle on 7th Street
Well here she comes just walking down the street,
In that little top and she looks like she was poured into those jeans,
Well I will tell you something for nothing darlin, I dont want the story of your life..
But baby won't you just keep walking and wrap those pretty arms around this body of mine?

The kids on 7th are out on the corner playing with their little toys,
And girl you know those guys that drive around in their cars with tinted windows? Well baby they're nothing but little boys..
And I will tell you something for nothing darlin, these long August nights bring out a wildness in me..
And tonight the heat rises up off that highway just as far as your pretty wild eyes can see..

And you will find her in that run down bar on 7th Street..
Or on these long summer evenings, down under the boardwalk in the blistering heat.
But tonight i think my luck is in, shes got her eye on me..
This is unexplainable..
Is this possible?
Or could there be a miracle on 7th street?

Well here she comes walking towards me,
And aint it funny how late in these summer nights these things come together so easily?
Well I will tell you something for nothing darling,
I still dont want the story of your life, but girl these summer nights are long and you're a sight for my sore eyes.

And you will find her in that run down bar on 7th Street..
Or on these long summer evenings, down under the boardwalk in the blistering heat.
But tonight i think my luck is in, shes got her eyes on me..
This is unexplainable..
Is this possible?
Or could there be a miracle on 7th street?

She looks like she was just poured into those jeans..

(Somewhere down on 7th Street, you know those kids they saw her, somewhere down on 7th Street)
Track Name: On the Boardwalk
Summer's morning rain is falling and I turn around in my bed.
I can hear the August wind calling, I got too much in my head.
I realise I'm lonely, when I'm talking to myself, or to those pretty girls on TV, I really need somebody else.

I saw you on the boardwalk.
You're the Queen of this God forsaken town.
I saw you on the boardwalk.
I prayed you'd turn around.
I'm still in love.
I'm not ready to go home.
I'm still in love..with you.

City lights flicker in the distance, as I sit out on the porch.
These summer nights are fading fast and they leave behind a sadness of sorts.
I miss your eyes, I miss your whisper and I miss your arms in the night.
I miss the way we shared our problems, the way you knew me just right.

I saw you on the boardwalk.
You're the Queen of this God forsaken town.
I saw you on the boardwalk.
I prayed you'd turn around.
I'm still in love.
I'm not ready to go home.
I'm still in love with you.

You were always there. But now you're gone and I'm alone.
Track Name: All These Changes
I guess I'm scared of everything changing,
Being left standing there while everything's fading,
I know I'm scared of opening this door alone.

And Mary goes down, she goes down to the water,
Where she can find something other than the worries,
That bother and break down her mind every night.

And my sister drives around at the break of the morning,
As she watches the dawn I think shes searching for something,
She wishes that she could resist the calling to go back home.

And down on the street the guys are all getting older,
They grow out of those dreams they'd gotten used to holding onto,
Some of them leave but some of them stay here,
And try to get their head around all these changes going down.
I try to get my head around all these changes going down.

Everyone is down on the beach, infected with summer,
We should stay here all night, drink this it'll keep you warm.
She said 'I dont believe I've ever slept outside beneath the stars on the hood of your car.'
As it gets really late, she lets loose all her secrets,
And reveals all her dreams and the things she is scared of,
I talk about breaking free, losing the dust of this town.
Im trying to get my head around all these changes going down...

Mary is down on the shore tonight, she's smiling at me,
And she dances while the waves crash around her feet.
And there are camp fires and warm beers spread all over the beach,
And we're feeling kinda lonely but we're feeling kinda free.
She said you know I feel that this is all gonna change,
Because it's at that stage where it all re-arranges,
And I said 'No I want to stay here, I want to stand so still'
But I can feel it tonight...

It's growing up time.
Track Name: Sometimes the Worst Part
I thought that you said you couldnt be wrong,
But I'm standing here tonight and the lights aint on.
It's like a car crash, but no ones involved..
Because we bailed out of this sometime ago.

And there are seconds when I wake and I forget,
Who I am, who you were and what's happening.
Last night I felt so alone..
And sometimes, the worst part's going home.

I ran back again, the lights are growing dim tonight,
And every single time I turn around you look at me a different way each time.
All I can hear are your footsteps moving in the wrong direction..
I thought I saw a light, just a reflection of someone else I used to know.

And there are seconds when I wake and I forget,
Who I am, who you were and what's happening.
Last night I felt so alone..
And sometimes, the worst part's is going home.

I was wrong and you were right, but there's nothing I can do tonight..

I was wrong and you were right but it took me a while..
