On

Album: A Weekend in the City (2007)
  • I am on, Switched On
    A sudden clearness, a clarity
    Hidden away in every locked toilet I've been waiting for you in the Joiners Arms
    I know your name, I know your name, I danced with you we're all friends on
    So this largs we're rhyming like bullets, rolled up twenties
    They disappear

    You make my tongue loose
    You make my tongue loose
    I am hopeful and set to free
    You make my tongue loose
    You make my tongue loose
    I am hopeful
    On Friday night I do the talking I pay the fine, the dumpster's mine
    Trips to the roof, see what we're missing,
    Drunken I love you's on top of the world

    And when it runs out we're chasing something we'll never catch
    And when it runs out we'll find me
    A flat so bleak I've been bitten by a vampire
    I find this bleaker than the one it replaces

    You make my tongue loose
    You make my tongue loose
    I am hopeful and set to free
    You make my tongue loose
    You make my tongue loose
    I am hopeful

    I can charm I can charm the room
    I can charm them all
    I can charm I can charm the room
    I can charm them all

    You make my tongue loose
    You make my tongue loose
    I am hopeful and set to free
    You make my tongue loose
    You make my tongue loose
    I am hopeful

    I can charm I can charm the room
    I can charm them all
    I can charm I can charm the room
    I can charm them all Writer/s: RUSSELL LISSACK, GORDON MOAKES, KELE OKEREKE, MATT TONG
