lyrics

Not waiting. Not hesitating.
No more, no more.

Didn’t realise she closed the door,
when she left that day, her heart on the floor.
She was always the one left hanging around
waiting for him to decide.
If he was letting her down, it’s always fine right now,
In the moment.

But when you stop and look back at them all
there were so many ups, but even more of the falls,
there were more of the falls.

She was mystified by that romanticised world
she’d built just to keep him close,
until the idea of him is what she liked the most.
Now she’s reclining back, 30,000 feet on a different track.
No looking back, just moving on, keep keeping strong.

Hook x 2

This is not a phase nor an enterprise.
This is the greatest day of our entire lives.
I am the matchbox, I am the black out of time.
I am my eyes that search for the furthest point in the sky.
I am.

You snuck me into gigs, I snuck you into lyrics.
Shittily written, hid in your living room giggling
an inquisitive rhythm, in the way that we were were kissing
timeless intuition.

now he - spits gratuitiously and I’m fit pursuing him.
Grief is opening him up
and so hes open but so welded shut.

Spent way too long- refining myself from old glass quartz
while you are trying to find yourself
so I could slide through your fingers
like fine sand flecked with gold
you try to make decisions bold
and then you swim against a current cold
you know that love cannot cheat death-
only you

I came home to your face
Looking like a crumpled suit
in your best jeans, 
and black riding boots.
Telling me our time is due.
Though we’re both alive, after the cask wine
I’ll master the last rites. It’s harder at first sight,
you gotta be cruel to be kind.

This is not a phase nor an enterprise,
this is the greatest day of our entire lives.
I am the matchbox and I am the black out of time,
I am my eyes that search for the furthest point in the sky.

I am not my eyes
I am my feet
That drag but nonetheless carry me
I am not my feet
I am my eyes that cry but nonetheless let me see.

This is not a phase, nor an enterprise
this is the greatest day, of our entire lives.
I am my eyes that search for the furthest point in the sky,
I am the matchbox in the black out of time.
