i don’t know you but you’re the love of my life, you’re like a déjà-vu that I pulled out of my mind. i’ve lost before and i know i’ll lose again but i just have to see your face, my friend. i don’t know you but I’ve seen you before in that house on the corner with that sign on the door that says i won’t give you the time of day so you’d be best right now to walk away. they can erase my mind but not my soul, so meet me in montauk and we’ll go for a stroll. and as the seasons pass it’ll all come flooding back and we’ll embrace the love that we once had. there’s a beach down in montauk where my memories lie, i feel I need to go there but i don’t know why. there’s a beach down in montauk and it’s calling my name, i think i’ll visit there on valentine’s day. they can erase my mind but not my soul, so meet me in montauk and we’ll go for a stroll. and as the seasons pass it’ll all come flooding back and we’ll embrace the love that we once had.
Track Name: Finest Clothes
stuck in a hole i dug, no-one is around to hear my cry for help. everyone i know is at home, sitting ‘round the table dressed in their finest clothes. a happy ever after is something that people believe so they can tell themselves one day they’ll be free. but it keeps on going just the same as before. empty promises, no-one ever opens the door. i spend too much time looking in and thinking about how i want things to be. i either need to find my way home or take an endless drive along an open road. just as I’m thinking of cutting the line, there’s a glimmer of hope that stirs somewhere inside. but that just makes it harder ‘cause it soon disappears and once again I am left here alone with my fears.
Track Name: House With No Windows
all the colours blend into one. a house that has no windows has no sun. and when you cannot see outside, reality is so different from that distorted view in your mind. you want to say that you love him, that you’ll never let him go. and you want to tell him you need him, but that’s just too far to go. on pulling back your curtain you only find a wall. you’d make your way outside if you could only see the door. now all your memories have become like pictures faded in the sun and then forgotten in a drawer. you want to say that you love her, that you’ll never let her go. and you want to tell her you need her but that’s just too far to go. do you think you’ll ever find a way? you want to say that you love him, that you’ll never let him go. and he wants to tell you he needs you but that’s just too far to go.
Track Name: Nicotine Sunrise
nicotine sunrise in shades of black and grey, will this distant ocean wash our world away? as i’m lying here, feeling ok, i could stay with you on this fucked up day. i know, i know, i know, i know, i know. around here all the people seem to look the same and they know nothing much about from where we came. but I’m prepared to play this gentle game. through shafts of sunlight I’ll hold you again. i know, i know, i know, i know, i know. did I tell you you were beautiful? here where the name is bigger than the place, juvenile wanderings, pictures of colour on the face of this empty abandoned frame. i’m so glad we came. I’m so glad we came. and as we’re driving down this grey and twisted road, drunken warblings on the radio. and though we’ve still got a long, long way to go, sitting beside me is my favourite home. i know, i know, i know, i know, i know.
Track Name: Telescope
i watch as your hand descends to pick up the pieces so you can start to mend. i see you pause and smile and stand up straight. in your face I see the realisation that it’s much too late. you sit and you wait for a day that you know will never come. and the morn brings the sun but you don’t see it. through your telescope you can see so far but everything around you appears as a blur. you try so hard to touch what’s far away but by the time you reach it everything has changed. you sit and you wait for a day that you know will never come. and the morn brings the sun but you don’t see it.
