THERE’S A RIGHT WAY TO DO IT A WRONG WAY:

The horses mouth beats a rhythm on the sun baked earth,

I wake up in the dirt,
Comes looking,
Tears in eyes,
Walking wild,
Broken sign,
Powerless around the edges,

How do you know you’re alive?

Looking for a job in a new shirt,
Small town church,
It’s in the blood

GIVE ME A WORD & THIS IS WHAT I’LL DO WITH IT:

The road,
Gone,
Fix my car,
Stare into the camera,
My favourite rideĀ under overhanging trees,
Avenues of culture,
Looking for the beauty in it,

Driver,
Catalogues perfection,
The given names,
Ephemeral,
Time on the wheel,
Shades on the dash,
Lumber,
Junk yard
Wreckers road,
Living across the white line,

Fixer,
Rust between the trees,
Rattles,
Houses on water,
Stilt-waking,
Too White,
Too sweet,
Where are you from?

OH HAVE A LOVELY DAY:

I’m craving sleeping on the sofa,
Waking up alone,
The silence,

Read a book,
All coms off,
Work it out,

Have a party,
Wake up,
Smelling of vinegar,
In a field,
In the rain,
In the road,
In an airport,
Looking at me from the outside

AND LIKE FIVE YEARS LATER:

“We been to Ibiza & all that. We like all that stuff”
He’d said,
“No, I think it’s really great what you do.”
He’d said,
Smelling of soap & innocence,
“We went out on the weekend & it was great,
really, really great!”
He’d said,
“We should get together”

Shook my hand,
Walked away,
Kept walking
