"Derelict" as written by and Matt Eccles Liam Finn....
He says he's strong
He doesn't know
Slips on his back
He went alone

Why can't he ever get the knack
'Cause he's a derelict

He doesn't know
She went alone
When he got back she wasn't home
He won't be long
She wants to go
He says he's back
She doesn't know

Why can't he ever get the knack
'Cause he's a derelict

He won't be long
She wants to go
He says he's back
She doesn't know
When he is gone
She runs alone
Can't make it back
Around the track

Why can't he ever get the knack
Slips over on his back
The only thing that he lacks
'Cause he's a derelict
