the kings…

yeah, i know this band has been around a while–but i am just getting into it.  mandy, you will like these guys a lot, if you don’t know them already. ❤

this is such a sad but lovely song.

I walked around for hours, two ten pence pieces in my hand
I was alone and freezing, still trying hard to understand youI left the others knowing I had to work this by myself
but now the feeling’s growing, I would be better off with their help

so baby, what we’ve got has lately, not been enough

I wish I had your scarf still, that once embraced and kept me warm.
I wish you could be with me, in these last days when I am still hopelessly poor

stay out of trouble, stay in touch
try not to think about me too much

I lose some sales
and my boss won’t be happy
but I can’t stop listening to the sound
of two soft voices blended in perfection
from the reels of this record that I foundevery day there’s a boy in the mirror
asking me
what are you doing here
finding all my previous motives
growing increasingly unclear

I travelled far and I burned all the bridges
I believed as SOON as I hit land
all the other
options held before me
WILL wither in the light of my plan

so I lose some sales
and my boss won’t be happy
but there’s only one thing on my mind
searching boxes underneath the counter
on a chance that on a tape I’d find

a song for
someone who needs somewhere
to long for

homesick
cause I no longer know
where home is
