lyrics

THE LAST RELAY

Take me home
Warm and bright
you part the crowd like a comb
Heading north
Up the street
where the brotherhood was born
Sister’s still feeling bleak
Babel kisses find tongue in cheek
Bottle rolls between our feet
I wonder if your light’s still on
I been thinking of you all day long
How the walls are crumbling down
Windows steam
Like a cloud that’s holding in a scream
Broken sleep
Hit the curb then fall back in a heap
My neighbour’s sweet face has slipped
Out of another relationship
The angry monarch’s looking down
I wonder if your light’s still on
I’ve been thinking of you all day long
Everything’s changing in this town

The grand dames do Grimaldi’s dance
Staggering heals
scatter feet like chance
Angel sighs through the London plane
I tune in to another song
One I’ve been dreaming
All my life long
Dream as sweet as blossom breeze

I need you, like the morning
needs the sun I need you
I want you, I can feel it in my cells I want you
If nothing’s all I can have
It’s better than something that
I never wanted anyway
If nothing’s all I can have
I’m going to have to live without
But I will find my last relay
