The market song (warm coffee)

 

She’s the sort of girl you find early in the morning, somewhere at the markets morning eyes,

& she is the sort of girl you find down by the sea, for the sea never left,

& I don’t know much about her because I met her at the markets didn’t ask her name,

But her eyes were soft & her words were the same,

 

These were things that I, things that I was sure about,

These were things where I, things where I felt the same,

Now that I’m trying, now that I’m singing softly again,

Same way she said thankyou when I told her she was beautiful,

 

She’s the sort of girl you find early in the winter, cold wetsuit in hand and she’s,

The sort of girl you find down by the sea, for the sea it always comes where she goes,

And she is the sort of girl that your father would love,

your mum would be so proud to show some things,

and her eyes were soft & love is the same,

 

These were things that I, things that I was sure about,

These were things where I, things where I felt the same,

Now that I’m trying, now that I’m singing softly again,

Same way she said thankyou when I told her she was beautiful,

 

Warm coffee on your lips, warm coffee on your lips, warm coffee on mine,

Warm coffee on your lips, warm coffee on your lips, warm coffee in the morning light,

Warm coffee on lips, warm coffee on your lips warm coffee on mine,

& there was something in these thankyous there was something that was beautiful.

Waterside

And what these chapters showed us well, what these chapters showed us how,                           From all of the stones that cut our feet walking to the sea,                                                                  Can teach us to be softer in our loving now,                                                                                        Can teach us to be softer as our lovers now,

                                                                              

To be lost in your loving now, to be drowning by the waterside,                                                     But I’m not lost in your loving now, I’m not drowning by the waterside,                                                I’m not lost in your loving now, I’m not drowning by the waterside                                                      I’m just in love here by the waterside,

Land & Sea

The pollen on my nose, marks the start of the spring & the death of the cold,

So I move south down the east coast, hope for west winds & for warm toes,

To try and understand the words we know, to try & hold your hands to learn,

The ways we speak the ways we fold,

 

Land & Sea, land & home,

Taking off all, taking off all your all your clothes,

I don’t know, I don’t know if I’m good for you,

Land & sea, land & home,

Gave my eyes to the sun, sold my heart to the road,

I don’t know, I don’t know if I’m good for you,

Cause I can’t give you things to keep or things to lose,

I don’t know if I’m good for you,

 

Just because it’s good for you, doesn’t mean, that it’s something I’ve worn I’ve worn,

Even if you’re worth holding to, sunburnt lips & morning stars,

& I know I’m not good for you, doesn’t mean that it’s something I’ve worn I’ve worn,

Even if you’re worth holding to, bruises on your hips & open arms,

 

Land & Sea, land & home,

Taking off all, taking off all your all your clothes,

I don’t know, I don’t know if I’m good for you,

Land & sea, land & home,

Gave my eyes to the sun, sold my heart to the road,

I don’t know, I don’t know if I’m good for you,

Cause I can’t give you things to keep or things to lose,

I don’t know if I’m good for you,

Time Alone

What we found in this time alone time alone, from the room to grow and some stones to throw, was a little love in the wood carved from the tree tops, a little love in the ocean and the salty skies, so I stood by this tree here to learn some wisdom, speak clear speak clear now, if you can, be clear be clear how you stood with the silence.              

                       

Singing grow let the wind blow, let the wind blow away, grow my love, singing grow my dear let the wind blow let the wind blow away, this time alone this time alone,

So I’mma let my heart walk further then my feet, so my feet can follow so my feet can follow, and I’mma let my heart walk further then it needs dear, so I stood by this tree here to learn some wisdom, speak clear speak clear now, if you can, be clear be clear how you stood with the silence.

 

Singing grow let the wind blow, let the wind blow away, grow my love, singing grow my dear let the wind blow let the wind blow, this time alone this time alone, this time alone this time alone now,

 

Lets find some beauty in the silence before we go, some beauty in the silence before we leave, cause nothing makes me nothing nervous, nothing makes me nervous like you, so lets find some beauty in the silence before we go, some beauty in the silence before we leave, cause nothing makes me nothing nervous, nothing makes me nervous like you close to me,

Singing grow let the wind blow, let the wind blow away, grow my love, singing grow let the wind blow, let the wind blow, grow my love, singing grow singing grow, grow here.

 

 

 

Used To

Been waking up here to blue skies, been waking up just a little too tired but I am,

Still learning how to switch off, been relying on my coffee just a little too much,

ninteen but my eyes have grown old, people ask my why my bones don’t show,

I said this youth is something that I’ve earnt,

I said this youth is something that I’ve learnt to love,

Two sides to a candle, two sides to a candle, being burnt,

 

Cold ground with no shoes on, my old van in your front yard,

Making love to you all night long, running my lips along your outlines,

Waking up to the morning light with you by my side, these are,

These are the things that I want to get used to,

And you are someone that I want to get used to,

 

Been waking up here to blue skies, been going to sleep just a little too tired but I am,

Still learning how to switch off, been relying on my alcohol just a little too much,

ninteen but my eyes have grown old, people ask my why my bones don’t show,

I said this youth is something that I’ve earnt,

I said this youth is something that I’ve learnt to love,

Two sides to a candle, two sides to a candle, being burnt,

 

Cold ground with no shoes on, my old van in your front yard,

Making love to you all night long, running my lips along your outlines,

Waking up to the morning light with you by my side, these are,

These are the things that I want to get used to,

And you are someone that I want to get used to,

 

 

Slow Dance

( X 2)

Lets pretend like we have had this for years, and you smiled, but I can’t pretend to try and love you with the touch of time, with your big brown eyes and a smile girl, well you asked,                                                     could you be the guy to, slow dance with me tonight,                                                                                                   and one soft kiss at a time, we can move a little closer , and you can entangle your heart in mine, and the touch of your lips down my neck send shivers, up my spine, well ah                                                         your eyes were closed, your hands rapped in mine,

A slow dance and a bottle of wine, a slow dance by candle light,                                            once, and once we are done, take the phone directory in my passenger seat,                             guide us home guide us home, take the phone directory in my passenger seat,                               guide us home guide us home. 

Church Man

waking up to the morning light with you by my side,

and the sunshine through the window, we were in love,

your at my door at 9 in the morning telling me,

all that I have done wrong, saying I’m a fool,

so your not probably going to like that I’ve been hanging with mary jane,

& I’m high on sex not enphedamines, so damn call me a fool,

 

I said mr church man stop knocking at my door,

I said oh mr church man I’ve heard it all before,

When I go let me die a fool by the sea,

& if the ocean lets us maybe you can come and drown with me,

We will die fools in love, die fools,

 

I love running my hands along your throat, my fingers on your neck,

& your chest can lay against mine, ‘cause see, this trust is reserved, 

We’ll be up late at night, losing sleep, drinking wine under the stars,

& the fear that I hear you speaking of, sir, I’ve heard it all before,

so your not probably going to like that I’ve been hanging with mary jane,

& I’m high on sex not enphedamines, so damn call me a fool,

 

I said mr church man stop knocking at my door,

I said oh mr church man I’ve heard it all before,

When I go let me die a fool by the sea,

& if the ocean lets us maybe you can come and drown with me,

We will die fools in love, die fools,

Hands I Can Hold

So keep the things we can’t breathe without, & I’ll seek a woman like you,

& We’ll reach for hands with which I can learn, & we will keep these,

Hands I can hold I can hold,

So she said to me, give me words that I can fold, & I’ll keep them in my pocket above my shirt & above my heart & above my home, these hands I can hold I can hold,

Turmeric in teas & wisdom of our own,

There is plastic in our seas & there is plastic in our homes, in our homes,

These hands I can hold I can hold,

Hands I can hold, I can hold X2

 

So we will share some tea on the porch, & spend time,

In the sea before & after dark,

all this stone & wood, all this stone & wood will stay here,

all this stone & wood, all this stone & wood will stay clear,

& we’ll get old,

Hands I can hold, I can hold,

Hands I can hold, I can hold x2

 

& I can’t promise you much, but time by the sea,

See I can’t promise you things, but I can promise you these,

Hands I can hold I can hold x7

The Ocean Song (Simple Things)

( X 2)

Shake the cold from your toes, and let the east coast walk you home, shake the cold from your heart, if at all, and let it fall, it takes a lot to make a heart a home to love and it takes a lot to love your own, but I didn’t even get your name when you walked on by, but I held your eyes so you held mine, hoping you would stop so I could ask you the simple things –

Do you love the ocean and could you love the ocean with me,

Cause I’ll be yours ( X 4)                                                                                                                                              These are the simple things, and I want you                                                                                     These are the simple things, my love, my love.

Settle Down

& the neoprene on my skin, a familiar warmth to the cold,

Making memories out of dusty rooms, out of dusty roads,

So when the winter comes, when the winter comes around love,

I’m going to find myself a good woman and then I’ll settle down,

 

Oh the taste of the nicotine on your tongue doesn’t seem so bad anymore,

But the things that it’s doing to your lungs is kinda hard to ignore,

So when the winter comes, when the winter comes around,

I’m going to find myself a good woman, then I’ll settle down,

When winter comes around,

 

& the neoprene on your skin, a familiar warmth to your tones,

but I’m asking reasons why,

despite all of my best efforts & I was only gone days at a time but you,

So when the winter comes, when the winter comes around,

I’m going to find myself a good woman, then I’ll settle down,

 

& the taste of the nicotine on your tongue doesn’t seem so bad anymore,

But the things that it’s doing to your lungs is kinda hard to ignore,

So when the winter comes, when the winter comes around,

I’m going to find myself a good woman, then I’ll settle down,

When winter comes around,

Days In The Sun

So I woke to the, sun on the window of my car,

Oh I woke, to the summer on my window,

& I miss you most when the sunlight, filters across these empty sheets,

days in the sun Ben Howard on repeat,

because everything we need love I can feel in my bones,

on days like these and days like those,

 

days in the sun, nights on the street, singing to my mother, singing to the seas,

singing to my father, singing to the trees, singing to the things that help us breathe

days in the sun, (are always x 3), the best with you

 

 So I woke to the, sun on the window of my car,

Oh I woke, to the winter on my window,

& I miss you most when the sunlight, filters across these empty sheets,

days in the sun, winter cold on your cheeks,

because everything we need love I can feel in my bones,

on days like these and days like those,

 

days in the sun, nights on the street, singing to my mother, singing to the seas,

singing to my father, singing to the trees, singing to the things that help us breathe

days in the sun, (are always x 3), the best with you

The Pocahontas Song ( Gone)

And I watch as the sun goes down, another day lost for now,

And I wonder where you woke up this morning,

Cause it was just last night but oh your kiss, it was just a touch but oh your lips,

She was beautiful,

We put our hands up to the sky, screamed the lyrics loud not shy,

Then you put your hands in mine and,

They fit perfectly together,

She looks like pocahontas but she wears these high top sneakers,

With a button up she’s so indie but she’s really beautiful,

She grabbed me closer so I said hypothetically theorecitally,

she said nothing and well she kissed me instead,

as the sun starts to rise and the twilight night is thin,

she kissed me for the last time & she was,

 

gone, gone as the daylight comes & I’ll probably never see her again ( x3)

gone, gone as the daylight comes & I’m falling in love & I won’t pretend,

 

it was just a fling but that’s the thing, but I don’t know if I want you to hear this song,

would you sing-along would you, turn it up or turn it off, would you learn the lyrics and come see me the next morning but I don’t know what I want or what you want, but the thing is,

She looks like pocahontas but she wears these high top sneakers,

With a button up she’s so indie but she’s really beautiful,

She grabbed me closer so I said hypothetically theorecitally,

she said nothing and well she kissed me instead,

as the sun starts to rise and the twilight night is thin,

she kissed me for the last time & she was,

 

gone, gone as the daylight comes & I’ll probably never see her again ( x3)

gone, gone as the daylight comes & I’m falling in love & I won’t pretend,
