lyrics

DOWN SOUTH

Now you’re down there,
Where the day ends gracefully.
None of the brutality of further South.

Swallows fly low,
Promise of a warm tomorrow,
While me here, I’m staving off sorrow,

Over here, over here,
Where the day crawls to its sticky end,
None of the grace of home.

Me just a blank face on the end of the phone,
Me just a blank face on the end of the phone.

Remember when we were down south,
Amidst squalor and hilarity,
The time when I socked you one in the face,
Down by the post-box in the early morning,
Down by the post-box in the early morning.

I’d been up, and out, a good part of the night,
Searching the gutters for your body,
And I was so beside myself with worry.

You were ok,
Mildly embarrassed,
I stormed off in a rage,
To my day-job as a waitress.

Remember when we were down South,
Amidst squalor and hilarity,
Remember when we were down South,
Amidst squalor and hilarity.

Please remember my face,
The way I wore it when I was worried.
Please remember my face,
The way I wore it when I was worried.
Please remember my face,
The way I wore it when I was worried.

about

a Singer of Songs Barcelona

a Singer of Songs' music has been compared to snowflakes falling in slow motion. To a blanket on a cold night and dogs howling into the night. Somebody called their album the soundtrack to a loser's life. The band thinks that's the biggest compliment they ever got.
But yeah, you probably want some useful information. Well, they live in Barcelona and they sing songs. That's about it.
