Hover (Acoustic)

A gift for you, you and you. I won't make a habit of this.

Hover (Acoustic version)
How I miss you. How I miss you, gravity.
How I miss youth; How I misused the one thing granted to me.

There's nothing left to betray,
They just ascend to decay,
And imitate the cliché.
Pristine, unbridled and sleek,
Slow-motion drifting, the sleet;
Teenaged, incurious sleep.

Skywritten, every line,
But in the back of our minds,
We know we're all out of time.
How many martyrs must fall,
Before we see through it all,
And heed the call?

Stripped of their anchors, these corpses will hover,
Floating by starlight.
Clipped at the ankles, we found one another,
Now in our twilight,
Nothing but a dream.

Higher, higher.

And now this moment is bleak,
We're temporary and weak,
Forget the things that you seek:
They're just a passing release,
But is it all that we see,
Or what we want it to be?

Stripped of their anchors, these corpses will hover,
Floating by starlight.
Clipped at the ankles, we found one another,
Now in our twilight,
It's nothing.

First we run, run, run, then the damage is done, and we're gone.
First we run, run, run, then the damage is done, and we're gone.

How I miss you. How I miss you, gravity.
How I miss youth; How I misused the one thing granted to me.

It's not a tragedy, no:
Just one more casualty.
It's only there to be gone.
There's nothing left to betray,
They just ascend to decay,
Forever wilting away.

Stripped of their anchors, these corpses will hover,
Floating by starlight.
Clipped at the ankles, we found one another,
Now in our twilight,
Stray and estranged now, you know when you're over,
Floating by starlight,
Here at the sidelines, watching you go: don't go!
Can we not just sing/sink like we used to?

How I miss you, gravity.

This is shaping up to be a really sarcastic album.

Out of the Bedroom

Yes, I'm finally performing again. Spending some much-needed time Out of the Bedroom on Tuesday (22nd of February). Needed to say, I am the headline act so you'll get twice as much of the same few chords, strummed like a livid dolphin might. The Montague Bar is easy to find (Montague Street), it's free to get in and you can play your own songs too if you get in soon enough. What more can you ask for? World peace? Oh, okay then!


Rehearsing, among others, Film on Girls. This song was disastrous the only other time I've performed it live, but I think I've worked out how to do it. There'll be a new song, merchandise (lower-case 'm'), and probably even one of the songs in which I rhyme 'eventually' with something! What more can you ask for? World peace? No. You've had your share.
