I can't spend my whole life just kicking
At the sheets and staring at the fan
So get me into hospital
Or somewhere with a bar and pool quick

Oh all these nights we stay up late and talk
Get heavy, stay heavy with me

There's nothing left to what we say
It's all just words that fade away
We're drinking like we're running dry
We're smoking like it's the 90's

Oh all these nights we stay up late and talk shit
Get heavy, stay heavy with me

    Song Meaning"I wrote this song one morning when I was recording some Liu Bei tracks at Middle Farm Studios in Devon. I don't have an acoustic piano at home right now, so whenever I find myself in the vicinity of one I jump in front of it straight away and write what I can.

    It's a song about those boozey nights with old friends when you just keep opening bottles of something and the conversation turns deep, heavy and personal...in a good way. It's incredible the issues that two drunk people can cover in one night.

    The line "We're drinking like we're running dry, we're smoking like it's the 90's" pretty much sums it up. Full lyrics below, because I really like these words.

    Produced by Aidan O'Brien (Producer/Composer) and recorded in Wales and Farnham. I love love love the muted trumpet part at the end. "
