Ben Avery's debut single, 'Beautiful and the Damned' is an engaging, dynamic and emotive introduction to this enigmatic songwriter's forthcoming album, 'Opia'. Due for release early 2017.

lyrics

In the side of an old oak tree,
There's a piece of you and me
From a day I don't remember
In the Spring of last September

And your eyes are always red
From the crying in your bed
No tears are on my shoulder
How dry is my shoulder

We are all the beautiful and the damned
Facetious yet we understand
Insatiable is what I am

So if you're tired then go to sleep
We'll find solace in our dreams
In a world that lies within us
In a world that dwells above us

We are all the beautiful and the damned
Facetious yet we understand
Insatiable is what I am

We are all the beautiful and the damned
Our reasons and illusions stand
All fighting just to reach our end (repeat)

We are all the beautiful and the damned
Un-yielding is the guiltless man
Just reach out and take my hand
