Last leaves have eyes of coal Caught in the updraught White smoke to spin for yarn Where the tree fell in the grove White smoke I can see Totterdown I can see Windmill Hill But I cannot see yet my son dig the earthworm For Nobby's dowel spoke Now she's pulling on the choke Top twigs press into twigs And they are the preimage in the vault And out into the settling I can see the yarn unwind Twenty-seven, twenty-eight We could go Totterdown As yours are now Freezing Hill So let me walk all the earth with no name Until I come of age I'll be coming to you

Loserville 05:17
I'm on a losing streak And everyone I meet Just smiles And turns away And If you say the words I can't but say that I'm no fool And if you come down in my car Ain't nothing I can do But turn around And turn it down And if you're bleeding much too far Ain't nothing to see you through You can't reach out Can't make a sound I'm on a losing streak Living on Loser Street Loserville

New Shoes 03:33
You wanna run before the sky starts to fall You don't wanna wait though it might not at all You say you want it so bad, then when it's been had You say you just don't want it no more You wanna live while you got the chance You want a chase and a real romance But now that I'm here, you tremble with fear and say Is this what I want? Is that what I want? And you talked about swimming upstream Girl I for one sure know what you mean But I'll grow stronger each day, soon I'll know what to say To make you see the light I have seen Once I was the carriage, I was the seat I was the shoes and the soles of your feet I wish you knew I'm here to stay, won't be worn away And I wish that the next time we meet, you'll say You is you, I is I, and the interface is stable You is you, I is I, and the interface is the interface You is you, I is I, and the interface is stable You is you, I is I, and the interface is the interface Let's make a family With family priorities I need new shoes These are worn through

In the autumn evening swoon I’m amused By the jaundice ash among the yews Chasing trains with my uncle’s lens Light won’t bend for the sheepdog, for the mountain, we are people I want to go home with you, I’m confused By your bridges and your views Racing stillness before it ends For all the silver of the birch tree, of the magpie, we are people Dissipating energy, increasing our entropy The grass was parted, our feet were wet I don’t know how this started but I’ll never forget The year we spent, the fear that went away How did this start there’s a hot stone in my heart and I wanna go home with you The mountain moon couldn’t pass me twice too soon coz I wanna go home with you Under awesome eves of June you were bruised And haunt this thrasher you would choose Facing panes slow will flow the Thames Send the stems to the deer bones, to the mountain, we are people I want to go home with you, I refused By your ridges and your views Bracing illness before it bends From the Tamar to the Beauly to the blue sky, we are people Dissipating energy, increasing our entropy The grass was parted, our feet were wet I don’t know how this started but I’ll never forget The year we spent, the fear that went away How did this start there’s a hot stone in my heart and I wanna go home with you The mountain moon couldn’t pass me twice too soon coz I wanna go home with you
