lyrics

I can still recall the feeling, when the cameras start to roll
a forward-with-the-madness keening, anything is possible
Two thoughts later on the trapeze, I’m not sure what brought us here
If the stunt man phones in poorly, shouldn’t we begin to care?

.. Shout! .. Cut! I don’t think so
Cash! Out! I don’t want to
Deleted dreams – all that’s left when we’re through

They won’t use all that they heard,
Some of it absurd, or just too softly spoken
They won’t have kept all that we did,
The scenes in which we hid, lacking Oscar motion...

.. Shout! .. Cut! I don’t think so
Cash! Out! I don’t want to
Expleted themes left behind on the floor
.. Shout! .. Cut! I don’t think so
Cash! Out! I don’t want to
Deleted dreams – all that’s left when we’re through

See I told you for real in the back of a bar, but we were too drunk to remember… The twist at the end of the film was the bit when they pan back and show you she never... I know how this ends...
The message I sent might as well have been lost from the moment the movie had started… They cut to the chase where my grand monologue was supposed to have left your heart melted… I know, how this, ends…

.. Shout! .. Cut! I don’t think so
Cash! Out! I don’t want to
Deleted dreams all that’s left when we’re through

about

Alexander's Festival Hall London, UK

Alexander's Festival Hall is a sort of English pop confection, a mix of regretful ballads and occasional pop rainbows. New album 'Not From Above!' is both music and book of stories. Twelve lush romantic songs and a collection of darkly comic thought experiments.
