Sunshine State

Magic in the air
People all around
Talking about future, future
Smell the ozone touch the sky
Sure we could surf
On a distant wind
Do we care about the storm clouds coming?

I’m living in a sunshine state
What are we waiting for?
Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?

There’s a new day now
Hear the birds
Its morning so they’re singing
Smell the grass, wash your face
Dew drops dripping
On a distant wave
Do we care about the winter waiting?
No,no

This is a sunshine state
What are we waiting for
Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?

Only takes one breath
To know for sure that summers coming

This is a sunshine state
What are we waiting for?
Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?
Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?

Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?
This is a Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?
Sunshine state
What are we waiting for?
What are we waiting for?


Dusk

We’ve only come to break your heart
Nothing is the same as it once was
We only came to make it matter
Everything is here for a reason

Nothing is the same without you being here anymore
I can almost hear your footsteps cross along the floor
Standing in the shadows looking over at the house
Every lamp left burning to just prove you’re not around
Til dusk, dusk

There’s only one thing of yours I want
That is everything you ever thought
Cos all the ??????? I made them all?
Will not bring you back again

Nothing is the same without you being here anymore
I can almost hear your footsteps crossing on the floor
Standing in the shadows looking over at the house
Every lamp left burning to just prove you’re not around

Punch drunk by my memory
Hypnotised by lights of every corner I’m turning on every single night
At dusk, dusk

Nothing is the same without you being here anymore
I can almost hear your footsteps crossing on the floor
Standing in the shadows looking over at the house
Every lamp left burning to just prove you’re not around

Punch drunk by my memory
Hypnotised by lights of every corner I’m turning on every single night
I keep faintly hoping that you may walk back through that door
That the morning prove again that the day pass over

Til dusk, dusk
Dusk
Dusk
Dusk
Dusk


Easter Sunday

There’s a black bird pecking on some dried-up dirt
Low bees are humming that can hardly be heard
Sun’s up now and it feels like dusk
I can rise out of bed if I think I must

I’m still here waiting on you
I’m still here waiting on you

There’s been a man in a coat at my door all night
Didn’t stop knocking til the sun had climbed
But every time I look it seems the light has changed
Everything feels different, but it looks the same

I’m still here waiting on you
I’m still here waiting on you
Until morning, Until morning
Until morning, Until morning,

Let him hang for a long time here
I’m only staying around til the coast is clear
No ones moving out til someone moves along
Say it is right but the man is wrong

I’m still here waiting on you
I’m still here waiting on you

Snow Still on The Cars


We’re driving down to school and past the bus stop
And I’m watching you from the backseat putting on your make-up
In a vanity mirror at the passenger side
That lipstick from a compact

Carry it in your arms up to the bedroom
Pretending if you let me I’ll be sleeping soon
Laughter, lying and singing
Looks up the staircase from the living room

I watch you pull off your coat for one last time
Everything that once was loved has been unloved now
Everything that once was has loved been unloved now

Looking at your face, walking on the street
Nothing’s really changed except the years
And the snow still on the cars, snow still on the cars

Times when I lay watching as you were sleeping
Times when you whispered secrets but nearly keep it
I still don’t know what you said
So I keep on dreaming

I watch you pull on your clothes for one last time
Everything that once was loved has been unloved now
Everything that once was has loved been unloved now

Looking at your face, walking on the street
Nothing has really changed except the years
And the snow still on the cars, the snow still on the cars
