Eat My Heart Out

Tiptoe past my door

So I can’t hear the floor creak

But your shadow found its way onto my curtain

 

I sleep in the spare bed

You sleep with your head

Just a few inches behind this wall

I still hear the breath you’d blow

 

Eat my heart

Eat my heart

Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

 

Eat my heart

Eat my heart

Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

 

We pass in the street

Tense up and look down to our feet

But there’s nothing interesting on mine

 

All these pictures are rendered useless now honey

Because I can’t look at them without feeling the guilt that you gave to me

And the illusion of better days back then

 

So eat my heart

Eat my heart

Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

 

Eat my heart

Eat my heart

Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

 

But my heart’s not ready, No it’s still not quite steady

But I’ll just keep falling in, just keep falling in

 

And these promises I’m making

Potentially I’ll be breaking

And the ground I’m standing’s thin

 

Sure I loved the image of the house in the valley 

And the kids in the gardens keeping their knees muddy

Sure I’d love to sit around in chairs

Watching the sunrise smoking cigarettes

 

Call me stubborn, call me right, call me anything you fucking well like

 

I'll eat my heart out tonight

 

Little Us

Little I,

Little you.

Little us, and what we’d do

Creatures used to personify

Providing laughs for you and I

 

We were always pure

Built on senseless cores

Open land to play

On a summers day

 

But it’s you

And it’s me

And it’s everything that we used to be

I’m fighting with my head

Just to understand what was said

 

Feet to feet,

Hand to hand.

Mouth to ear to conjure a plan

Foolish deeds were to aspire

Cross ones toes and we’d go higher

 

We were always pure

Built on senseless cores

Open land to play

On a summers day

 

But it’s you

And it’s me

And it’s everything that we used to be

I’m fighting with my head

Just to understand what was said

 

When we were young,

Oh did we fun

Causing trouble in the sticks

So home sweet home could cause a fix

When we were youthful

So honest and so truthful

We’d sing

"Smile and the world smiles with you"

Bittersweet End

She wore long brown hair and quirky clothes

She loved the fact wherever she’d go

Would be overlooked by guys she didn’t know

 

But that Summer’s evening in Mid-July

Amongst the arseholes telling lies

She saw her genuine guy

 

Well his name was carl and behind that smile

Saw humour, youth and a quirky style

And she figured she’d give him her time for a while

 

Now 10 years later with wedding bells,

Their family surround them to wish them well

And the life for two were on their way

 

“A little more love in a little less time and I’ll be fine

Cos my insecurities they are just, stacking up high

And the world I knew was with you

Still when I make to eat, I make for two”

 

Past the time when technology outgrew them

Another life was born unto them

Years they spent, teaching, learning

Well she grew character, and now they’re yearning

 

With crosswords on the kitchen table

Their love need no label

They’d just, rest where they lay

Pick their brains till the day

 

And on Carl’s last night, he had no worries no frights

He’d just confide in her heart

Until day came they’d part

 

Now his absence just leaves silence

And his silence just leaves tears

She’ll sit by that kitchen table

Listing all her fears

 

“A little more love in a little less time and I’ll be fine

Cos my insecurities they are just, stacking up high

And the world I knew was with you

Still when I make to eat, I make for two

 

It’s the ones that surround us with thoughts and opinions that inspire

Will broaden our minds and only take us higher

We got what we loved so damn right, we loved what we got

It’s my favourite bittersweet end.”
