lyrics

How I saw you that day
And I knew it was you
From the flicker of your light
And something else too

Words wouldn’t know
Glow sticks in your bones
When I saw you that day
At the top of your road

Hi vis in your eyes
And your skin
Primrose lips
Some sweet yellow thing

A ladybird plug
Bleeding out light
After Pops passed
I was scared of the night

If you were a blackbird
You’d sing lullabies
Fly to the moon
And watch the sunrise

In the dead of the dark
My dreams are all blue
It needs a little song
I need to hear you

(Bridge)
One day it wont be the same
For a long time now, we enjoy the day
I wrote those words, as just a little boy
And never really knew what else I could say
I’ve been thinking bout writing
Writing bout thinking
Dipping the ink in
Eeking out something
Nothings better
Than all singing the same tune
Moonlight dripping in my folks living room

We were all lit up
By the lamp and the moon
Like the songs that were sung
In my folks living room

One winter night
In a city called Leeds
Outside a dance we’re
Cold in the breeze

I put a spell on you
From your head to your feet
So nothing can’t get you
God its so deep

We could rent a tile
I’d hold you so tight
A patterned out pool in
Pastel blue light

Swimsuit smiles and
Steaming hot tea
Slippered out feet
To keep us cosy

If I was a blackbird
I’d follow your trail
Blow in the wind and
Watch your ship sail

No broken wings
We’ve got the same eyes
Wet from the storm that
Wrecked all the skies

(Repeat Bridge)

We were all lit up
By the lamp and the moon
Like the songs that were sung
In my folks living room

All the leaves on the tree
Were all dancing in the air
I looked at them close
They all seemed to care
They were all lit up
By the lamp and the moon
Like the songs that were sung
In my folks living room
