lyrics

I was, all set, all to forget, the things love does to you
Who did I, think I was kidding?
I read the greats, from morn ’til late, drinking deep from wisdom’s brew
So who was that, set my heart spinning?

But what do I know? I’m just the guy who
Took a tumble underneath your poetry
And when I see you, that blessed shape who
Stirs my thoughts anew to curiosity

I ducked the sting, that deadly thing, with equations deep and dark
Just, for once, could I be colder?
I wrestled with, questions stiff, how to live without a heart
Truth be told, with a lack of candour

But what do I know? I’m just the guy who
Took a tumble underneath your poetry
And when I see you, that blessed shape who
Stirs my thoughts anew to curiosity

And when you see me, so deeply reading
It’ll be your letters not that book I bought
The motivation? this new sensation,
Written there in chapters two to four

If 2+2 was never 4 baby ... and the sun sets in the east you say
The theory’s good but not too good to question,
My silence means there’s just too much to say...

Rpt. choruses

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.
