Colour Fields

Album: The Take Off and Landing of Everything (2014)
  • All clear
    Good Lord
    Did well to be ignored
    Your falling temperature
    Like cooling kisses
    All through your head
    A made-up water's edge
    A summer gone on tabling fabled blisses

    I'd love to see you waving
    From the far side of the swim
    Gathered in by a waiting troop of the open-hearted
    Where colour field meets canvas
    And the picture breathes you in
    Where all the stories meant for you have already started

    Bright girl, dead town
    Walking tall but blown around
    The secret chainmail gown of your father's blessing
    Bright girl, dead town
    Open mouths for miles around
    I still see you keeping those dough boys guessing

    I'd love to see you waving
    From the far side of the swim
    Gathered in by a waiting troop of the open- hearted
    Where colour field meets canvas
    And the picture breathes you in
    Where all the stories meant for you have already started

    Bright girl, dead town
    Bright girl, dead town
    Bright girl, dead town
    Open mouths for miles around
    Bright girl, dead town
    Bright girl, dead town
    Bright girl, dead town
    Bright girl, dead town
    Open mouths for miles around
    Bright girl, dead townWriter/s: Craig Lee Potter, Guy Edward John Garvey, Mark Potter, Peter James Turner, Richard Barry Jupp
