When I look into her big brown eyes
I can't help but stroke her hair
When she sits up in my lap all my problems I can air
She whimpers when I stroke her spine and I know she's feeling fine
The way that she looks at me lets me know that she's all mine

She lays back and I gaze into her eyes and I think about the misses and think about the lies
What would I do if she found about us too?
Would I run away through parks and through the woodlands and start a fresh with you
Start a fresh with you

She growls at me when she wants more and we play into the night
She likes it when we use toys but makes sure I do it right
There's so many others out there but it just wouldn't seem right
To let her know I tickle on her tummy and I hold her really tight

She lays back and I gaze into her eyes and I think about the misses and think about the lies
What would I do if she found about us too?
Would I run away through parks and through the woodlands and start a fresh with you

I hear a key turning the door
and it looks like we've been caught
Come on girl I'll get your lead it's time we took you for a walk

    My mum guessed this was about a dog from the first few lines, I love the twists in Bromheads Jacket songs.

The Spy

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
