about

'Raffled Roses' was inspired by a friend of her family who grows flowers back in New Zealand: "Last Christmas he surprised me with a hippeastrum he'd bred and officially named 'Vinyl Skip' (after my first single), and would continue to breed one for each of my singles and is currently working on one for 'Beauty'," she explains. "He and my mum have had a running joke for years that I'm a bit of a heartbreaker (which is definitely fiction haha). I thought the image of raffling off roses was a perfect way to marry his botanical prowess with my apparently 'cold heart'."

lyrics

Im staging a sneaky intervention of my cold cold
Im staging a sneaky intervention of my cold cold heart

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

Dragging my feet
The weight of your bouquet was heavy company
Frangrance so sweet but one by one by one
I sold them all

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

Three little words
Sat pretty on a throne that barely holds the load

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

I wana be alone but don't wana be lonely
Will he find me? Will I find him?
And will he thaw my, will he thaw my, will he thaw my
Cold, cold heart?

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

I wana be alone but don't wana be lonely
Don't wana be
