Past Perfect

Album: Present Tense (2014)
  • Back then there were no others
    All I knew, true beginners

    We had a gift, the perfect present
    No such a thing
    I'm taut

    It's tense for me
    Can't live within a memory
    Proud woman I daren't come passively
    Every fella deserves his dignity

    Our hurt is older than our hands
    It passed from monkey into man

    Now tender hands do heal the hurt
    Man did fuck up
    And then he learnt

    It's tense for me
    Can't live within a memory
    Proud woman I daren't come passively
    Every fella deserves his dignity

    It's tense for me
    Can't keep reliving what is history
    Proud woman now don't go soft on me
    Where's that famous old dexterity?

    It's tense for me Writer/s: BEN LITTLE, CHRISTOPHER ROBERT TALBOT, HAYDEN NORMAN THORPE, THOMAS WILLIAM FLEMING
