Lyrics

Rubbed Out

Like a tape that’s been rewound and rewound
I lose the picture and I lose the sound
Like a painting that I can’t leave done
With every stroke you just blur into one

When I dream back on those days
My treasured memories become erased
When I try to think of you
I just can’t help but rub out another part of you

Like a path that’s been retread and retread
The way back to just gets eroded in my head
And like a book that’s been read over again
Soon all the pages just fall out in the end

Chorus

I don’t care about anybody else
When I think about you I vacate myself
I don’t care about anybody else
When I think about you I hate myself
I don’t care about anybody else
When I think about you I confiscate myself

Chorus

My Inland Voyage

One word one hand to hold
I’m gonna love you more
One word one tear one smile
I’m gonna love you more
One day every minute one afternoon
I will love you more
Fight until we’re raw

One word one line one page
I’m gonna write a book
One word on line one page
I’m gonna write my book
Will I will I fuck


News fast food flash flood
my friends and my family
Genocide x10
we’re on the wrong side of history
their kids fill the sea

Baby is Blue

baby is blue but I know what to do
I’ll take you out for a drive in my ride
wind down the window of the passenger side
and I’ll have you home before midnight and moonrise

whenever I’m lost you’re a straight river
whenever I’m bitter you’re an instant forgiver
wish I was you then I’d know what to do
but then you’d be me and where would we be

feels strange to feel regret
for things that haven’t happened yet
nostalgia for the day just done
a sense of loss for a friendship that’s just begun
but I feel hope for the past
‘cos I tell myself no-one can take it away
or bring it back

baby is blue but I know what to do
C’mon now child let’s go for a ride
wind down the window to make yourself cry
and I’ll have you home before midnight and moonrise


Castle /Cafe

You go to Bamburgh and you will find coffee
You go to Carnarvon and you will get cake
You go to Conwy you get buffet salad
You go to Dundonald you get your traybake because…

In every castle there is a café
In every castle there sits a café
There isn’t a castle in every café
But in every castle you’ll find a café

My son Daniel he sits in the café
In the café in the castle inside the soft-play
He says “hey look Stephen, I’m sat in the café
In the café in the castle inside the soft play”

In every castle there is a café
In every castle there sits a café
There isn’t a castle in every café
But in every castle you’ll find a café


Sparkleblues

Baby’s got sparkleblues
Yeah
Baby’s got sparkleblues
Yeah
And I know what you think about me
Yeah
And I know what you think about me
Yeah

If
If I
If I see
If I see your
If I see your cat
If I see your cat shitting
If I see your cat shitting on my
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn then I
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn then I will
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn then I will kick
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn then I will kick its
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn then I will kick its arsehole
If I see your cat shitting on my lawn then I will kick its arsehole in.





The Sea

Go with me / down to the sea
I’ll drive / Your hand on my knee
We’ll dream / And hope in reverse
Our lives will get better / Without making things worse
Maybe I’ll write you / A cheap lullaby
Maybe you’ll catch me / A tear from your eye
I think you’re crazy / Maybe you’ll agree
As we keep on driving / Down to the waves of the sea


Hold my hand / And I’ll feel no fear
Wading in a sea / Of a million shed tears
Leave everything / On this pebbled beach
Let’s go / far out of reach
My heart is hazy / My head is warm
As we swim like two babies / Beggin’ not to be born
No one will miss us / As we float for days
We’ll hold each other / Under the waves of the sea


I’ll be Found

Cats fight
on this cold night
when we kissed I left my body and took flight
and I flew twice around the bay

Round once
round twice
First time to check I’d said all my goodbyes
Twice to check I’d left it all behind

You said ‘life feels like a colouring book
And I’ve filled in all the pages’
‘There’s always another book that you can buy’
I said ‘it’s more like a puzzle book
And I’m trapped in all the mazes’
You said ‘there’s always another puzzle you can try’
