lyrics

Verse

City in a hole, feel the damp, see the cold
You’re one of my best friends
We hated high school together
You bought a red van and you never returned

Everything thing is dark, we are dead in Dunedin
Played one of my best shows
With one of my heroes forgotten
These thoughts of fruit become rotten and lose colour

Chorus

I need you to know that I love you
I need you to know I’m your friend

There’s place on the hill in Dunedin
There’s a boy in a bar with a mic
And he’s singing his heart out
Verse

Took a ticket, sang a pop hit, saw someone I spent a life with
Nights like this are on the edge of fucking perfect
If it wasn’t for the hallowed and the hollow
If it wasn’t for the lines I have followed in error

Late night kebab, climb the hill, confess the close, chase the thrill
I could talk shit till sunrise
But it’s duvets on the floor, hum of the fridge in the kitchen
Another buzz to ignore, I only dream I never listen

Chorus

Verse

Blossoms in the spring light, that crisp Sunday morning
There’s a new hope in town
And he will rob you if you let him in
I feel like I could talk to a stranger
I feel like I could walk with a genuine smile
