Lyrics

It can be nice to play guitar in the daytime
And scribble words down when everyone else is at work
But I earn nothing much to give, and if we ever had a kid
It’d be a little selfish not to stop
Unless it’s my job
And there’s some fool who wants to pay me
Oh I hope that I make it before we have a baby

I hear their adorable little mouths they need feeding
And their fragrant heads need somewhere to rest
Another white guy needs attention for his feelings
As if we’d ever need another one of those
But it’s all I know
And there’s always stacking shelves in Sainsbury’s
Oh I hope that I can make … Read the rest

Lyrics

It started with a thread
I was trying to find the ends
But somewhere along the way
I got tangled

I forgot what goes where
In such a muddle, me

I know these knots do me no good
Still I just cannot help myself
When the threads are in my hands
Oh I just cannot help myself
When the threads are in my hands

A reflex to me now
Loop it through and underneath
So pleasing in a certain way
But oh, what a jumble

Now I can’t move ‘til they’re untied
And I know one move would set this right
Cos all these knots do me no good

Still I just cannot help myself
When the threads are in my hands
No I just cannot help myself
When the threads … Read the rest

Lyrics

Today I feel unusually well
Suspiciously so
I should try and trace it back
It might be useful to know
Why I burn a fraction more bright
Maybe it’s nothing
Or that a butterfly flapped its wings
But much like a temporarily mislaid actor’s name
It’ll bother me not to

Trace it back
Trace it back
Trace it back to the source

I feel uncommonly alive
And I’d love to know why
Gonna trace it back to the source

I start to riffle through my records of the day with my mind’s fingertips
But there’s not one entry out of place
I should let it go

Was my step always this light?
It’s right under my nose
On the tip of my tongue
It’s there and then it’s gone… Read the rest

Lyrics

And so we turn my friends once more to matters of the heart
A word that’s used so much I hardly know where to start
Yours is hungry for adventure
It’s a little left of centre
I’m so very grateful for your heart

Perhaps the thing I love the most is its profound compulsion
To pump your blood around your body of its own propulsion
Moving oxygen and energy
With unfailing regularity
I’m so very grateful for your heart

So often celebrated
Maybe it’s overrated
And your skin keeps out the weather
It holds you all together
And I can’t help wondering whether I’m
Equally grateful for your skin

Now you have a beautiful heart
But other organs deserve our love too

How come we never hear such songs about … Read the rest

Lyrics

Ever since you left I still fear you dressed in shadows hiding
Whispering words inside my head
Whispered words I wish I’d said

This place is haunted by the echoes of your elegance
It’s like some dusty old museum
Screening us behind a velvet rope

Your make-up in my bathroom
Your socks I wear when I have none
Still sleeping on your mattress
I feel you here you’re my Ghostess

Still find your hairs on my clothes
How can it all be over
When our toothbrushes still seem to kiss
I feel you here you’re my Ghostess

Am I awake or dreaming
Is this you I think I’m seeing
No you’re just one step ahead
Toying with my tired head

Everywhere I go there’s something that reminds me of … Read the rest
