1. Rescue Dog

From the recording Box & Whisper Plot


Bottle shops, open doors and a rescue dog
Candlelight is dimmer than a moonlit pond
Running out of time right now, got a lot to haul
Sentimental, never let you go

And I know and I know and I know that I like it

Bottle tops rattling around an empty hall
Ghosts and ghouls are beautiful
Dynamite exploding like a wounded cop
Find my way back to the jewellery shop

And I know…

Battleships, frozen armies, and the pain won’t stop
Butterflies afloat, colours fly in the summer sky
Over my head, over my heart, on my shoulder
Not alone, just getting older

And I know…
