Lazy Beds 04:52
Are you looking for something That keeps you from home? I know the house goes cold without you all alone Are you looking for somewhere To lay your head? More than a long abandoned painting for a bed You painted her ceiling To glow in the dark With stars so close she can't know they're so far You are full of distractions And songs to sing Sometimes the light catches your eyes like some wild thing Know that the sky looks sad and empty since you left And if I could find you I would show you what it meant But I will I remember my first home A growing thing A house that knows the words we learned to sing I haven't been back there To our lazy beds The same fields that were tended by the hands we never held Know that our house was full despite the words unsaid And if I could find you I would show you what it meant But I will

You come to me when your nights don't seem to end Come to me when your fire has been spent When you're written out Come to me when the house blows down Come to me when there's no one left in town And you want me to be there These are the walls of a broken house These are the lies you told to get me out Now we pass each other by Sails silent at night Come to me when your house burns down Come to me when you're buried in the ground And you want me to be free

about

Both these songs were first released as limited-edition vinyls on the wonderful I Will Play This Song Once Again Records.

They are a bit scruffy, but they say what they mean.

All the lyrics were written shortly after a visit to Kerry, where I grew up, and for some reason they feel like Kerry songs. I'm not sure why.
