Lyrics

We saw in the dawn from the roof of the bar
When nights become days then you've gone too far
We listened to songbirds and rush hour cars
And welcomed in the day
He said "London in summertime is great,
On days like this I feel like I can escape
From things that I've done, and mistakes that I've made,
I can wash it all away".

We bathed like swimmers in the morning sun
And waited for our night to end
We new one of us would come down hard
And one of us would start again.

We started out curious, it started out fun
We smoked in the woods when we were young
And secretly slipped something under our tongues
And danced the night away.
But everyone stumbles on old cocaine
It burns out the best but it burdens the brain
Till brown comes and whispers away the pain
And you find you've lost your way.

We bathed like swimmers in the morning sun
And waited for our night to end
We new one of us would come down hard
And one of us would start again.

You'd sink in the river for your death
You'd sleep with the fishes, draw no breath
You'd swallow forever, till nothing's left
Take no rest.

Oh my friend, if you made for the shore
You'd see us here, we're all waiting
Just cast your eyes down to the floor,
You'll see us here, we're waiting

Don't sink in the river for your death
You could sleep in the shade, draw some breath
You could start fresh tomorrow, leave what's left.
Please draw breath
Let's let nights become days.

So come down kid, the roof's safe now
All your friends are waiting for you to get some rest.

It's Thursday. Feels weird that there's no gig (streamed) tonight, right? Maybe I should announce something instead.
