lyrics

Find that I’ve come back home,
I still know the squeaks in all the floorboards.
Tonight I’ve been locked out and returned to where I’ll always go,
chasing spiders round the lilac room,
thinking about the ark and Samuel’s mum,
if this is real life then I’m sure that I want more.

Just earlier today all the air was filled with storms,
And I imagined me and my country were at war,
chasing unknown threats in unknown towns,
and as the thunder rolled around,
if this is what’s in store I don’t know that I want more.

It could have been this morning,
I found a hedgehog lying dead,
all still and tangled, strangled in the cricket nets.
And I wasn’t sure what I should do,
but as I tried somewhere in me knew that when I leave I want you to be there too.
Yes when I leave I want you to be there too.
