  1. Salt

  2. Under the Weight

  3. Feels Like Home


1. SALT

Scratching all the salt off our backs again
And quiver at the sweetest sting
Driving down the dust on the tracks again
Leaves a lustre on your skin

Day by broken day, I could keep driving for miles
Frame by frozen frame, I could keep driving for miles

Big black cloth on the windowpane
Diamondback moth on the sill
Lies on its diamonds and whispers
Winter's gonna steal from us all

Day by broken day, I could keep driving for miles
We're far too far away, but I keep driving for miles

 


2. UNDER THE WEIGHT

Under the weight of what I didn't do
I found myself hid under what I did
But I'm home for the summer smitten by a song
I wish I'd writ ringing in my ears

And twenty-four years, I'd drive to the seaside
For a coconut kiss and a place to hide
And so I'm reminded of a man who was blind
When he'd talk talk talk and say nothing at all

I've never seen an eye so green
She's the moon and I'm the sea
The keen perfume of jealousy
I've never seen an eye so green

Under the weight of what I didn't do
I found myself hid under what I did
But it's the end of the summer and at the foot of my bed
Is the same old song running round my head

I've never seen an eye so green
She's the moon and I'm the sea
The keen perfume of jealousy
I've never seen an eye so green

You can say whatever you want my love, your love is back to front

 


3. FEELS LIKE HOME

Stars were falling right out of the sky
Falling slow like snow on my bed
We're brighter than bone by the light of the moon
Softer than silver of a spider's thread

Oh my god just the way that you breathe in
Feels like home to me, feels like home
Oh my god I can't believe it
Feels like home to me, feels like home

I wanna fall just under your skin
Shaking the walls like thunder for fun
I wanna stay just under your breath
But you got this way of holding my tongue

Oh my god just the way that you breathe in
Feels like home to me, feels like home
Oh my god I can't believe it
Feels like home to me, feels like home
