You got yourself a whole new life and all i've got is half this old one. In a whisper disguised as a snowflake, I wish to be remembered to you in a whisper, like a snowflake. I wish to be remembered to you. Beat the living cities out of me and spoilt my progress and let me be. This year its taxes and i can see its going to be a long one. You've got a face for this and drawers for eyes. You slipped thru our last kiss, and i can see its going to be a long one. she's beginning to take on water and she's beginning on this years taxes. She's beginning to listen to what i tell her. She's picking up and going backwards to the beginning. She is hunting for the right words in white dresses like i heard you say it the first time. Like i got no reason to be kind now but it ate a hole in my heart and now yr leaning over to turn the radio up. I stay out on your estate house. This year its texas. She's hunting for the right words but i dont want to know.

The girls who turned us down in nightclubs are now pushing prams around the city centre and they swear it’s now over. Well it sure looks over from here. Would you believe our skyline’s stolen, trail the queues and you’ll know no one, say there’s more to giving up than another burnt out club.

And those glazed eyes!

Balconies, housewarming season, hung with the scene girls mostly freezing, she said it looks a little like Brooklyn and I just laughed. I thought you’d given it up I thought you’d given, o how it’s never enough I thought you’d given it up. How you know yr getting old when yr happy to be getting old.

That’s when I got kinda bored swam out of the bills moved abroad it gets kinda blurred, but my legs got burned in the bare sun the burns got covered in bites and all those public fights were too much.

Those glazed eyes

I miss you at 19 getting id’d and angry
I miss you at 19 staring out Digbeth High Street
