Track Name: Chips + Wine
Chips and wine
So divine
Track Name: Mornings
lying awake on my bed
i can hear my heart beating
and i still taste the sweetest wine in my veins

and i was a saint
until i was introduced to sin
now everything i touch is stained

and how the moonlight drives me crazy
and how the streetlight keeps me sane
and how the nights are always hazy
and mornings i memorize my name

lying awake in my bed
i can hear the birds are singing
but i can feel the night in my bloodshot veins

and i was a child
until i was introduced to shame
and i am old but i never learnt to abstain

and everything's unsteady
feeling so unready
so give it to me easy now

and everything's unsteady
in a dream so heady
so baby give it to me easy now
Track Name: On A Sunday
market mothers
bring your children out on a sunday afternoon
to see the fish and the veg
and the stalls in the wet market now

football fathers
bring your children home on a sunday night
to see the boys in the match
and hope he wins his bets

on a sunday
everything moves so slow
on a sunday
standing in monday's shadow
oh sunday's
always come too soon

cartoon noises
coming through the walls on a sunday morning
don't wake me from my sleep
but i don't mind because the sound is sweet

neighbours screaming
but they're waving when you step outside
on a day like today
you smile but don't know what to say
Track Name: What Do You Call It
what do you call it
when you let the phone go on
ringing a bit longer than is right
when it makes the most sense
to hurt you out of spite
when all I want to do
is set this place alight
what do you call it

it's scary but your hand don't fit in mine no more
i love you but i don't like you anymore

how would you put it
well I would say
it's a glacier primed to collapse
or the death of a star perhaps
but how would you put it
it's the beginning of an end
of a wasteful drunken bend

the lights go on, and the credits roll
we exit left to this hellhole

it's scary but your hand don't fit in mine no more
i love you but i don't like you anymore

the lights go on, and the credits roll
we exit left to this hellhole
in the dark without a light
we're two ships passing in the night

i loved you but your hand don't fit in mine no more
i loved you but now you're showing me the door
Track Name: Wild Ones
my baby just runs and runs he's never standing still
and none of these chains of yours could keep us against our will
sharper than knives, hotter than coals
our home is our hearth and our hearth is the open road

well take it from me he's a wild one
take it from me he's a wild one
yeah take it from me he's a wild one

my baby stole fire from the gods with the devil close behind
he stole the thunder from the clouds and split open the sky
we're dancing in liquor stores, we're riding in stolen cars
and over the horizon all you'll see is a burning star

give me a taste of your danger
and you know i'll be coming over

love is a violent song and we die a little bit each day
Track Name: After Midnight
why don't you meet me after midnight
for a nightcap at my place
leave our lives behind us
another time, a different face

you say "hello how do you do"
"there's no one as fine, as fine as you"
the moon will rise and my stomach will turn
the stars catch fire and we burn burn burn

why don't you meet me after midnight
spin some tunes and dance all night
cos I'm tulip to your jesse
highway racing till it's light

you'll say "until the world would end
"and the sky it breaks from a space-time bend"
the moon will rise and my stomach will turn
the stars catch fire and we burn burn burn

the world would close around me
your voice would almost drown me

why don't you meet me after midnight
she'll never know, I promise you
but when she turns her head and reaches
for a flurry of your kisses
Track Name: Red is the Colour
bloodberry kisses on my skin
some pigment on my lips
crawling through glass on my knees
your belt around my hips
on and on, on and on
a violent song
on and on, on and on,
red is the color of marital bliss

i will never get out alive
your love to me's a slow suicide
i will never get out alive
i don't wanna live i don't wanna die

blackberry bruises growing wild
the fruits i've learnt to pick
my broken body is your child
just take him away from me
and i never listened when mother said
that red is the color of marital bliss
Track Name: About Forever
i was young and you were free
etching wooden hearts in the tree
of our backyard where you fell

summer skin was salty sweet
musing over our destiny
of fame, fame and glory

we're just waiting for our time
always waiting to cross that line
and you know it's not about now
it's about forever

i was young and you were free
etching wooden hearts in the tree
of our backyard where you fell

i went slow but you were fast
i guess we knew these days would never last
till the early light of the morning

and when indie bands teach you about
love and responsibility.
you better listen
Track Name: Ghosts
feeling like I know the words
to a song I haven't wrote
like I know the sound
to a voice I haven't heard

another drink or two, my dear
i'd drink the whole menu
for you, if only for you
yeah, what I wouldn't do

and one day when you
realize the shit you
left me in I hope it churns inside your shameless gut

and when I make it
you'll grin and bear it
i’m sorry baby but this train don't wait for anyone

yeah, I want my vinyls back
what of my pride you might've kept
i won't wait by the phone
i've gotten good at being alone

won't be the fool who
writes songs about you
the abandoned heroine
the luckless harlequin
won't be expecting
a happy ending with you
Track Name: Sleepyhead
sleepyhead
i watch you sleeping
sleepy head
life's only good for dreaming

real life's too loud
people aren't worth meeting
days go too slow
time keeps on bleeding

real life is petty
people aren't too kind
he doesn't love you
it was all in your mind

sleepy head
there is no point in waking
sleepy head
life's only good for dreaming
