lyrics

Verse

Put the address into your phone
I'll do the driving, you do the talking
Let's take the long way out of here

You wait in the carpark
I'll fetch the groceries, so strange and ghostly
Fear had arrived in Masterton

Chorus

I’ve never longed for anyone this much
I've never been with anyone this tough

Verse

And we like to head up north
Friends become family, time becomes sandy
I tend to hide from everyone

I'm clenching my teeth again
You're always solid, now we have wandered
Hold my hand close until the coast

Chorus

Bridge

I had a hope
But everything would change in a weekend
It was a joke
That what you do matters to people

Verse

We're watching TV news
Countries are closing, calling in colours
An ode to the lovers of Castlepoint
