lyrics

lost the scent in the fur of your neck
picked it up again at drinks on the deck
I wondered how our spirits get out
‘til I saw our skins hanging in the marquee

load the bricks through the hole in the lawn
scatter ash out silver salad bowls
do you think the path of the hero was lit
by a phone on a stick flickering or moon on our lips?

first got stuck in the pace of the time
second one ran out underneath the tyres
and the third one listened to everybody else
and the fourth got bored only liking love
singing...

we never thought about it much
I remember now
did you use your whole heart?
for a little while
and if the treasure isn’t seen?
the shovel works
the monument was nothing to believe

we can have a house that’s bigger than we need
I can see the woods if we turn out the light
people saving up, wonder what it means?
something between them and the outside
you can choose the colours, I can trap the meat
you say the things that only I can think
people holding hands, wonder what it means?
something between them and the outside

now that no one is listening
we pause at the sight of the scene
our theme
she lifted up her drink and said,
‘this must be the place in the dream, but I guess
I’m already there and now there’s nothin’ next’
singing...

we never thought about it much
I remember this
did you use your whole heart?
was there more to it?
and if the treasure isn’t seen?
then we’ll keep the tape
we make mistakes for authenticity

now I know all the towers rising through the trees
‘we can see you’ they say
‘always seeing we, and we’ll always be here reminiscing
about your body missing
about you bodies missing'

we can have a house that’s bigger than we need
I can see the woods if we turn out the light
people saving up, wonder what it means?
something between them and the outside
you can choose the colours I can trap the meat
you say the things that only I can think
people holding hands
wonder what it means?
something between them and the outside
