Giant Peach

Album: My Love Is Cool (2015)
  • I got change in a pocket somewhere
    Got my letter in the box
    Tired of waiting for the bus to nowhere
    And tired of chasing the stone fox
    I don't tell lies no more, you know
    I just don't tell the truth
    I don't know what I'm looking for, ya know
    But I'm not looking for proof

    I have a tricky love affair, you know
    With the place where I grew up
    But it knows I'll never leave, ya know
    I never left it much
    I hate to see it despair, oh, don't you do it
    I hate to see it screw up
    But it knows I can hardly grieve
    When it's hard to give a, hard to give a... wow!

    What keeps me here?
    It's not the boy giving the funny feels
    Don't know what keeps me here
    It's not the P to pay for the wheel
    What the hell keeps me here?
    In this dark old town that I adore
    The rules don't seem so clear
    And change, it feels like fear, it's all you know

    Our dark and pretty town
    Our dark and pretty town
    Our dark and handsome town
    Our dark and pretty town
    My dark and pretty town Writer/s: Ellen Ciara Rowsell, Joel Donald Scott Amey, Jonathan David Oddie, Theodore Joseph Ellis
