Featuring backing vocals from Little Scout's Mel Tickle and Pat Elliott


We live in a cul de sac and cut our own hair
While our neighbours are fighting or drowning in sleep.
Each day we wake we've moved a step further
From where we began or had been aiming for.

A mother comes home, with the kids, from the grocery store.
A daughter goes back to the car on her own
And locks herself in with the sun beating down
And becomes such a beautiful tragedy.

So dance to the movement of sound in the air
And call out her name when the sound overwhelms you
And think of the way that she'll never forget you
Like your childhood friends whose names you can't remember.

We are surrounded by thousands of magnets
Each one of them saying that they're our true north.
We hold on so tight to each new love that we come across,
But in a year we won't remember them.

Seeing wide eyes peering over the covers
The morning when we were in the house of your cousin's.
Leaning in close and smelling your morning breath,
That is the way that I'd like to remember you.
Forgetting the nights we were bored of each other,
Ignoring the times when the stress got the best of us.
The low hum of traffic and your messy hair,
That is the way that I'd like to remember you.
