Anywhere the wind blows… there goes her and me
In the first days of us practicing, we would meet in Finchley
We were scared of singing and our voices cracked with nervousness
It’s that life I moved here to try and see

We swapped demo tapes and I called each acquaintance
To go out for drinks, or stand alone at gigs
You keep your foes close and fight to keep your loves close
Trying to impress, but you must see I’m lonely

Golden days
After uni, years of struggling for a social situation
Nothing in the country or the joy of my friends…
You graduate and expel to home towns

Singing with Alexis in an Irish pub
It was on a day in Sutton, when the rain was coming on
You put one chord down in front of another
Darlings can you hark at her?

Surely within time, I’ll stagger through the rain
To watch her in a play, on my 28th birthday
It seemed we could talk about anything
No one ever does…

Hark at her
In the Bree Louise pub, Carter Beats the devil
Hark at her
It’s raining in London, shelter under covers
Hark at her
A cat sleeps on top of the photocopier, where I work
Hark at her
A cat sleeps… under covers
