about

A song written with the help of Ruth Theodore after a summer listening to a lot of 'Kings Of Convenience'.

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 / 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 / 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 green
strangers with shoes / I stayed up
‘till dawn again / drinking with friends
moments you / 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 / feel so alive
