Dave Turner One of the most underrated UK bands around. A unique and special sound worthy of repeated listens. A shame the other albums didn't come out on real CD too... Favorite track: Lonely End of the Dancefloor.

The tiny whine Of August skies The stage is set But this summer can’t last We’ll be back soon Wait in the car If you get hot Just wind the window down Outside People are mirages Going about all of their business Look and You can see their shadows But you won’t see Where it is they go I miss You all Later I’ll miss you more Heart fit To burst Guess that’s What it’s for The ceiling dots Arrange themselves Into lines Just for fun They mark the place Where (if you like) A tin-opener Could let in the sky Outside People are mirages Going about their pretend business Look and You can see their shadows But you won’t see Where it is that they go I miss You all Later I’ll miss you more Heart fit To burst Guess that’s What it’s for

Polaroid 05:24
(one by one fade reverse polaroid) A chemical reveal The only time you’ve been pinned down And what was found Was that your love Was made to fade Straighten up your memory Capture it in 3 by 4 Find out what that heart is for Fading in (the look before she meant it right before she meant it now it’s never ending polaroid) So hard to put in words You shed some light upon the matter but by the time the image came the story changed Here’s the man I used to be Capture it for old time’s sake Taken as the heart breaks Taken as the heart breaks Straighten up your memory Capture it in 3 by 4 Find out what that heart is for Fading in

Warpybird 04:51
Four to the floor And the birds In the trees Sing your name You rewind All the things That you knew Before There Is a word for this Feeling Not That it matters Too much You’re in the deepest Of focus Not That you’re Focussed At all As such Drained of all fear Hands in the air Every note Every beat Miles Apart And your heart Like the tide Going in And out

She is two people
 Cut down the middle
 Don’t talk about anything much
 She is two people
 Cut down the middle
 Don’t talk about anything much 
You don’t understand 
I’ve been here before You don’t understand I’ve been here
 You don’t understand I’ve been here before
 You don’t understand I’ve been here
 There is no centre
 There is no secret
 There is no switch to be thrown
 There is no reset 
There is no enter 
There is no fuse you can blow 
You don’t understand 
I’ve been here before You don’t understand I’ve been here
 You don’t understand I’ve been here before
 You don’t understand I’ve been here
 She has a memory
 Something important
 Something you cannot recall
 She is two people
 Now it’s essential
 Next it won’t matter at all You don’t understand 
I’ve been here before You don’t understand I’ve been here
 You don’t understand I’ve been here before
 You don’t understand I’ve been here
 
Now you’re a memory 
Now you’re past perfect 
Now you’re a verb she can own 
Now you’re a short cut 
But it was worth it
 Scissors, paper and stone

No end of blame say your name What do they know The voices in your head Switch them off Do something else instead The ocean sounds The stars descending It’s never done It’s never ending It’s all a ruse A provocation We all get down Across the nation Say your name Say your name

Fireflies you fireflies and I'm watching from the dark Your fire is gone in seconds and your light is just a spark It’s nothing like a circuit and it’s nothing like a bomb We stand apart we dance apart and we try to get it wrong You're moving round like clockwork you all dance like a machine you're coiled up to breaking your escapement is the beat all hands up to the ceiling all four down to the floor but over here it's not so clear and we try to get it wrong welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor

AWOL 05:12
Open / shutter / let the / light in / what use / what use / ending / listing / back off / leave it / it’s not / worth it / come on / come on / come on / come on So say the end won’t trouble you Say it’s soon come To fall away right under you Split like pack ice The earth stops spinning under you Nothing doing The sun will switch off and it’s No surprise at all Back off / Leave it / It’s not / Worth it / Come on / Come on / Soon come / Out line / One line / One star / Star to / Star to / Star to / Who are you / Who are you? If I were An astronaut I’d herd the stars And pen them all And spell it out In words of fire A thousand light years Side to side: Who the fuck Is God to claim I’ll go to hell For what I say? You’re not lost You’re just offside You’re not sad You’re just alive.

Stitch 05:48
You are a jail You are a prosecution I am the hand You are the arm And I’ve done wrong The premise that we’re working from Is that it’s you Who’ll stitch me up And I’d like you To stitch me up Oh bring it on The Judas kissing contest Oh let it come The quiet knife Just get it right It’s you and me at dead of night You’ve got a chance To stitch me up I really hope You’ll stitch me up Let’s drink to us The fallen and outnumbered Let’s raise a glass The old team We once were grand We really had the upper hand Until you chose To stitch me up I’m glad it’s you Who’ll stitch me up We’re all alone We are the sole survivor I know the ropes You’ve all the charm And there’s a time to flatter and disarm me and there’s a time to stitch me up and now’s the time to stitch me up
9.
Close your eyes and hold my hand – Patron saint of one night stands Hear us now and cast your light upon us Every stare and every smile Every call you in a while Call you in a day or two I promise And if we’re only lovers And not the best of friends How come I keep seeing Seeing you again The Universe expands From day to day How come you keep getting Getting in my way
