"Roller Disco Dreams" as written by Thomas Alexander English, Duncan Robert Lloyd, Paul Anthony Smith, Archis Tiku and Lukas James Wooller....
We shared a bed but never touched
Next time we compensated in a rush.
We're showing no signs of fatigue
I've got a friend to act as a go-between.

There's a distant draw to your delivery
You delivered me.
And when I'm dry you resuscitate me
You resuscitate me.

This bed's too tight
I stepped upon your records in the night.
Put on your favourite skirt
I've got a plan that will never work.

This isn't the first time but it still feels innocent
I just want to kiss you.
There won't be a time when my mind strays to you
No, I'm not going to miss you.

Onto fireworks in Brixton
Two carousel hearts spinning
If it's a grower
Why can't we take things slower?

She brings up the roller disco
Head full of curls on the pillow
If it's a grower
Then why can't we take things slower?

I don't know if you've made it but you accommodated me
When my mind was elsewhere.
Out on deck the dawn arrived.
Your grey sweater oversized.
The rooftops glimmered before our eyes.

Onto fireworks in Brixton
Two carousel hearts spinning
If it's a grower
Why can't we take things slower?

She brings up the roller disco
Head full of curls on the pillow
If it's a grower
Then why can't we take things slower?

We were straying at the lock-in after hours
If it's a grower
Why can't we take things slower?

    General CommentLove this song!

    I think it's "She dreams of the roller disco" rather than "She brings up the roller disco" - especially considering the title is Roller Disco Dreams?

    General CommentFelt like this was filler when I first bought the album, never really listened to the chorus. Goddamn was I stupid. Fantastic, 80s guitar sound in that part, and the vocals are heartwrenching.

    I'm none too sure what the song's about, but I get the feeling the first half at least is describing a relationship of extremes, they keep going through massive highs and lows and the guy just wants them to slow down rather than putting all their time and effort into random nights out without meaning or thought. Not sure, though.
