  • Every Saturday
    I wait for the footfalls
    In the hall
    Mother Mary at the wings
    And the ocean is upon us

    Still, I still run away
    Out here nothing moves at all
    Woodsmoke, Jordan cologne
    We light up by the loading zone

    Every night I count the cracks
    Up on the backroom wall
    Fall into the fault line
    When I reach across to you

    'Cause even when you're here
    It's like there's no-one else around
    I'm sleeping on my tears
    I'm burning all my candles down
    Oh

    Jenny Stone, I remember
    When the spark went flat
    With you finished
    You were singing in your midnight black

    Every night I count the cracks
    Up on the backroom wall
    Fall into the fault line
    When I reach across to you

    'Cause even when you're here
    It's like there's no-one else around
    I'm sleeping on my tears
    I'm burning all my candles down
    Oh

    Stand on ceremony while the ship sinks
    Put the iceberg in my tall drink
    Waiting at the door like a lone pine
    Talk about the war at the hotel
    Stand on ceremony while the ship sinks
    Put the iceberg in my tall drink
    I'm waiting at the door like a lone pine
    Talk about the war through the night

    Seems like they're all coming down
    Or leaving
    There'll be nothing, for no-one to believe in

    'Cause even when you're here
    It's like there's no-one else around
    I'm sleeping on my tears
    I'm burning all my candles down
