When I go, i think i'm gonna sew my name into all of your clothes
my girl, since you have always worn me well.
And there are too many animals on this ship, some of you i think will have to sink
but when it gets too much, you can only adjust

oh i am always thinking about you
and how you always wear me well,
you can't outgrow something sewn under your skin
so i will always wear you well.

And sunday evening always has this sense of something good about to end
i know we hold our breaths for tomorrow, and i think im gonna write my name
into all the books you love so well, since you can read me good my girl
yeah you can always read me well.

Try and rationalise a thing you've never seen before
you can wear me well, you can wear me well
id suit myself, but its one that ive never worn

and if theres only one truth that i know, its that the stitches that we've made are the best i've ever sewn

so when i go, i think im gonna sew my name into all of your clothes...

    General CommentSounds like a great 'love song' to me. That special bond, trust between two people.

    "i am always thinking about you" - deep and genuine affection for someone.

    General CommentI think the line:
    'and if theres only one thing you should know, its that the stitches that we've made are the best i've ever sewn.'
    should actually be:
    'and if theres only one truth that i know, its that the stitches that we've made are the best i've ever sewn.'

    Beautiful song, I love the way Josh Pyke writes.

    General CommentI read in a J Magazine interview that the idea for the song came from him wanting his loved ones to remeber him when he was gone.
