Newborn

Album: Asleep In The Back (2001)
Charted: 42
  • I'll be the corpse in your bathtub
    Useless
    I'll be as deaf as a post
    If you hold me like a newborn
    Whisper what you feel

    My badly strung declaration to you
    You'll spend the end of your days
    Gently smiling like a newborn
    Whisper what you feel

    Love not by degrees

    Press your lips to my eyes
    Taste my tears on your tongue
    Pull the blinds
    Play our song
    Nothing's changed
    Nothing could be wrong

    Scream in the night
    Kick and strike like a newborn
    Holding me shaking awake in the dark
    All of these promises kept and unbroken
    Tracing the scars
    Tracing the scars
    Even and cold as we both become older
    Your arms bound about me
    The hush in your voice
    The warmth of your fingers entwined around mine
    In the eve of our lives
    Never a choice Writer/s: Peter James Turner, Richard Barry Jupp, Craig Lee Potter, Mark Potter, Guy Edward John Garvey
