Strange Room

Album: Cause and Effect (2019)

  • A pint set on the piano by the open window
    Your arm around my shoulder
    One song after another

    A church to praise the good times
    And shelter from the bad times
    And when our run came to an end
    Felt like I'd lost my best friend

    For a moment I was dreaming
    We were just beginning
    Thought, "Finally I've come home
    Finally I've come home"

    Officer let me explain
    I lost something I love today
    Yeah I know what it looks like
    A rich kid with a good life

    Now I know you're too young to
    Have done things you can't undo
    To rake over your dreams
    And know this is what they've come to

    I woke up in a strange room
    Time to start again now
    No one to help you find a way through
    You're just meant to guess it somehow

    Well for a moment I was dreaming
    We were just beginning
    Thought, "Finally I've come home, finally I've come home" Writer/s: Jesse Quin, Richard David Hughes, Thomas Oliver Chaplin, Timothy James Rice-Oxley
