Till Dawn

about

The best hangover I ever had.

lyrics

picking my way
back through the rain
grey skies today
but its fine
here in my mind
play like a child
leaves underfoot
autumn could
turn out to be
musically mine
spring in my step
I stayed up
‘till dawn again
drinking with friends
moments you just
feel so alive
feel so alive

my road has been
better believe
better pretend
consigned to
some place before
memory me
wind in my hair
thoughts of your
smile in my dreams
patch up the past
love and cheap booze
I stayed up
‘till dawn again
drinking with friends
moments you just
feel so alive
feel so alive

dance in the street
break out the flag
singing aloud
foreign eye
textures and words
things that we heard
my pen it feels
momentum
sat on a train
palette of greens
strangers with shoes
I stayed up
‘till dawn again
drinking with friends
moments you just
feel so alive
feel so alive

...and I sat there
watching her sleep
how do you dream?
when will you
wake? I must say
one of a kind
parallel lines
meet at the
vanishing point
not what I mean
I meant to say…
I stayed up
‘till dawn again
drinking with friends
moments you just
feel so alive
feel so alive
