lyrics

heading downtown looking round high
before I’ve even pressed the day to my lips
I taste time gone by
when my heart was a red royal bird on high
you were never too keen on the pre-paid fare
just toss a coin see if you make it
but miss the bus let the cars go past
mess it up and there might be
something bigger than you and me

turn left at the traffic lights hit my street
old piss stained laneway lies in wait
how many times did we sit in the shell of your car
trying to cling to the thing that had bought us this far
now we’ve dissolved to pen on paper
as we kowtow to the cold narrator of the past
let’s reminisce this history into its box
maybe we can see
if there’s something bigger than you and me

they say wisdom comes from mistakes
and strength from heartache
you know I’d make do with just
being weak and dumb
tiptoe round trials of fire
lay low keep a lower profile
but all the while a voice says
you’re in it for the long run

is there something bigger than you and me
I’m waiting for something bigger than you and me
