Almost (Sweet Music)

Album: Wasteland, Baby! (2019)
Charted: 82
  • I came in from the outside
    Burnt out from the joy ride
    She likes to roll here in my ashes anyway
    Played from the bedside
    Is "Stella By Starlight"
    "That Was My Heart"
    The drums that start off "Night And Day"

    The same kind of music haunts her bedroom
    I'm almost me again, she's almost you

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    Tell me who, and I'll be thanking them
    The numbered lovers of Duke Ellington
    Do I owe each kiss to lip and cheek as soft
    As Chet can sing "Let's Get Lost"
    And "Let The Good Times Roll"
    Let "Smoke Rings" from this "Paper, Doll"
    Blow sweet and thick 'til every thought of
    "It Don't Mean A Thing"

    I've got some colour back, she thinks so, too
    I laugh like me again, she laughs like you

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    I wouldn't know where
    I wouldn't know where
    I wouldn't know where, I wouldn't know where
    I wouldn't
    I wouldn't know where
    I wouldn't know where
    I wouldn't know where, I wouldn't know where
    I wouldn't know

    "The Very Thought Of You" and "Am I Blue"?
    "A Love Supreme" seems far removed
    "I Get Along Without You Very Well," some other nights
    The radio news reader chimes
    Reporting "Russian Lullabies"
    She'll turn to me awake and ask, Is everything "Alright"

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me

    I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
    Don't ruin this on me Writer/s: Andrew Hozier-Byrne
