"Everlasting Light" as written by Peter Duncan Liddle, Matthew Taylor, Scott Miller and Jonathan Warren....
I was lying at the foot of the playground
You were chasing off the kid with the greyhound
I remember thinking “You’re the coolest girl I know”

You were swinging from the ceiling rafters
I fell around you in a halo of custard
I don’t go to hospitals
I let you go alone

I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons at the time
Something in the state of mind
Oh, Everlasting Light

Why’s your father always calling me out yeah?
There’s a saying in the English South:
"You have to put your mind in gear before you drive your mouth"

Got to thinking of the gin in the wood bar
I found the powder in the funeral house
I know that blessed conjugal
I could not be alone

I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons at the time
Something in the state of mind

I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons, yeah
Something in the state of mind
Oh, Everlasting Light
