Diptych (single)

from by Laura Imbruglia



"Diptych" follows previous single "Tricks" with a decidedly moodier vibe, showcasing thick 90s chorus and reverb with Laura's signature lovelorn lyrics front and centre.

'Diptych' is about that feeling of dread that sometimes accompanies new love - the fear that your partner will leave you and ruin the beautiful thing you created together. I picture a good relationship as a living diptych - a 2-part artwork" - Laura

Laura's forthcoming fourth album "Scared of You" is due for release in 2019.



Slow the beating of my heart
Oh, repeating counterpart
It’s not a trick - we’re a diptych.

Every chance you get to go,
These branches no longer grow.
That’s so unkind.
Where’s my sunshine?

You tell me you feel it too,
I’m still scared of you,
Tell me you feel the same.

What’s this horror I have found buried in the underground?
Why’d you unlock Pandora’s box?

You tell me you feel it too,
I’m still scared of you,
Tell me you feel the same.

What if I don’t wanna let you go?
